Romney wanted to let Osama go

23 Oct

Its hard to know Romney’s position on anything, given he contradicts himself so much. Let’s be clear on one issue though: Romney harshly criticized Obama’s pledge to send U.S. troops into Pakistan to get Osama bin Laden.

In 2007, Romney attacked Obama for saying he’d order U.S. forces into Pakistan to kill or capture bin Laden, just like he did in May, 2011. “I do not concur in the words of Barack Obama in a plan to enter an ally of ours,” Romney said in 2007. The former Massachusetts governor also said in 2007 referring to bin Laden: “It’s not worth moving heaven and earth spending billions of dollars just trying to catch one person.”
