1. I criticize the president all the time, on many issues , but...

But the war in Af/Pak is one area where I think he has been doing a great job.

The drone casualties are very very very ugly, but not as ugly as the alternative.

There are real terrorists our there plotting attacks. We have an intelligence program to identify threats and if our government has information about threats to America, we have to take action. What is the alternative? Do nothing and wait for the next terrorist attack?

If the local authorities in that country are unwilling or unable to take action against terror groups, in my view the president is quite correct to take actions against them. If we didn't have the drones, we would have to send in people.

This is what President Obama promised to do if elected and he is following through.
