Obama gets tough

Via Hugh Hewitt: Barack Obama today threatens to send US troops into Pakistan to hunt down al-Qaeda terrorists, saying "If we have actionable intelligence about high-value terrorist targets and President Musharraf won't act, we will."

This puts in a whole new light Obama's remarks in the YouTube debate last week, when he said he would meet, without precondition, with the leaders of Iran, Syria, Venezuela, Cuba and North Korea – about as impressive a collection of high-value terrorist targets as you could wish to find. It's now clear that he wants to get 'up close and personal' with these guys so he can take them out with a single well-aimed blow, thus minimising the risk of collateral damage.

There's flip-flopping and there's flip-flopping.
