Benjamin Netanyahu has actually fought real terrorists. Not hemmed and hawed and delayed for 5 months before collapsing into the corner of the room and ordering real men to kill a terrorist. And that’s why we respect Israel and hate our socialist man-boy President.
A interesting internal email has surfaced – well, interesting only in the fact that is re-affirms the CNN bias:

Subject: Castro guidance
Some points on Castro – for adding to our anchor reads/reporting:
* Please say in our reporting that Castro stepped down in a letter he wrote to Granma (the communist party daily), as opposed to in a letter attributed to Fidel Castro. We have no reason to doubt he wrote his resignation letter, he has penned numerous articles over the past year and a half.
* Please note Fidel did bring social reforms to Cuba – namely free education and universal health care, and racial integration. in addition to being criticized for oppressing human rights and freedom of speech.
* Also the Cuban government blames a lot of Cuba’s economic problems on the US embargo, and while that has caused some difficulties, (far less so than the collapse of the Soviet Union) the bulk of Cuba’s economic problems are due to Cuba’s failed economic polices. Some analysts would say the US embargo was a benefit to Castro politically – something to blame problems on, by what the Cubans call “the imperialist,” meddling in their affairs.
* While despised by some, he is seen as a revolutionary hero, especially with leftist in Latin America, for standing up to the United States.
Any questions, please call the international desk.
All four men survived thanks to Doc Chiarini and earning the Silver Star was a special recognition for him. But he received the best tribute several weeks after returning to Camp Lejeune when he ran into one of them at 8 Ball Pizza, a corporal nicknamed Redhead.“Doc, I knew everything was going to be OK when I saw you come through the smoke,” the Marine told him.
From his citation for the Navy Cross – our second highest military honor. We life under the blanket of freedom provided by men like this. We are a lucky country to have him. And you should read his book – Hard Corps http://www.amazon.com/Hard-Corps-Gangster-Marine-Hero/dp/0307383040/ref=pd_bbs_sr_1/104-4681419-0695146?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1192402450&sr=8-1
