To the Fox News watchers: How long did it take for the Bush-Cheney administration to kill or capture Osama bin Laden, the mastermind of the 9/​11 attacks?

By watching Fox News, people are depriving themselves of the facts.

The Bush-Cheney administration did not kill or capture Osama bin Laden; it was President Barack Obama, a big thank you. On Tuesday President Obama confirmed that U.S. special forces had captured the alleged mastermind of the Benghazi attack on the U.S. Embassy.

Fox News commentators would have you believe all anyone had to do was land at the Benghazi airport and go strolling downtown and arrest Ahmed Abu Khattala. In their wildest dreams …

The Bush-Cheney administration vs. the Obama administration: Mr. Obama started no wars. Bush-Cheney started two very costly wars in lives and treasure which Bush-Cheney put on our credit card.

I know facts never stood in the way of Fox in bad-mouthing President Obama. But if you’re watching Fox News for the facts, it will be a long wait!
