2012: Barack Obama declares: “Al Qaeda is on the path to defeat.” He also said.
“I ended the war in Iraq, as I promised. We are transitioning out of Afghanistan. We have gone after the terrorists who actually attacked us 9/11 and decimated al Qaeda.”
“We said that we would go after al Qaeda, and they are on the run and bin Laden is dead.”
“That’s why, working with Joe Biden and our national security team, we’ve been able to decimate al Qaeda.”
“Thanks to sacrifice and service of our brave men and women in uniform, the war in Iraq is over, the war in Afghanistan is winding down, al Qaeda has been decimated, Osama bin Laden is dead.”
“Today, al Qaeda is on its heels and Osama bin Laden is no more.”
But, by all means, mainstream media, keep obsessing over that bridge thing.
