During the election, Obama ran on the claim that he had defeated Al Qaeda by killing Bin Laden. The problem with that was that Bin Laden was little more than a symbol at that point and Al Qaeda had evolved into numerous local franchises.

That great truce with Hamas lasted for an entire month. And it only lasted that long because Hamas took some serious damage in this round of fighting. But the rockets are back.

Sure Governor Christie is, technically, a Republican, and Cory Booker is a popular Democrat, but in the net asset column, Christie did a lot for Obama’s reelection campaign, he may have even clinched it, while Booker undermined Obama by challenging the Bain narrative, leading many leftists to urge that he be forced to pay a price.
The Obama administration’s Asia team was caught so off guard by North Korea’s Dec. 11 rocket launch, several of them actually had to put down their drinks and suddenly leave a holiday party. “Nobody in the U.S. government thought this would happen when it did,” said one top Asia expert who attended the party. ’People were hoping it didn’t happen before Christmas because they wanted to take time off.”
