Obama is denying it is a terror plot. Having a successful terrorist attack against us right before elections would make him look weak.
There are so many problems at home that the funds and effort directed abroad would make a world of difference right here at home.
I agree that he is trying to make this look like a whole lot of nothing. I also am amazed at how little these incidents are being reported. If Bush was in office people having their heads cut off would be huge news, but for some reason it's not a big deal right now.
I say withdrawl from the area both physically and with our support. The government won't do it, but I am for just pulling out and letting them live the way they want.
