Note to the Nobel Peace Prize Winner

Dear Mr. Obama,

Thank you for signing off on the daring mission by U.S. Navy SEALS to take out the world’s most notorious terrorist. You undoubtedly know that in international affairs, peace is best maintained by strength and the strategic use of force.

Thank you, also, for ignoring your earlier foolish comments promising to close down Guantanamo Bay and to oppose “enhanced interrogation” techniques, such as waterboarding. Apparently intelligence extracted from a Gitmo terrorist several years ago played a key role in finding bin Laden. I’m heartened that you see now that being president requires adult decision-making and not continual slogans and sound bites.

Thank you for so successfully carrying out the policies laid down by your predecessor. Obviously, after years of bashing George W. Bush for doing the things that ultimately led to the killing of Osama bin Laden on your watch, I’m sure you understand that decency requires that you send Mr. Bush a note of apology.

A public one.

Thanks again.
