Will This Mistake Become One of Obama's Worst?

Now that Comrade Obama has completed his first one hundred days as the 'Dear Leader', many bloggers are referencing the piece by the New York Post; 100 Days, 100 Mistakes.
But here is one mistake which you probably will not see in the MSM, and it has the potential to be one of Obama's biggest. A year ago this month, the State Department issue the following statement;
“Iran has repeatedly resisted numerous calls to transfer custody of its AQ [al-Qaida] detainees to their countries of origin or third countries for interrogation or trial. Iran also continued to fail to control the activities of some AQ members who fled to Iran following the fall of the Taliban regime in Afghanistan."
This last February, an Iranian government official came to Washington with an offer to turn over top al-Qaida operatives, including some on the FBI’s “Most Wanted Terrorists” list. The State Department declined the offer. Read the full story here.
If you remember, back in 1996, the government of the Sudan made a similar offer to then president Bill Clinton, regarding Osama bin Laden. While that offer was not quite on a 'silver platter', many believe that Clinton did not do all that could have been done to take advantage of that offer. How many lives will this mistake by the Obama administration cost?

that's a scary thought, isn't it.
But, one that needs to be discussed.
How many, indeed? And, all THE ONE does is apologize..constantly.
Well, they kept trying to get Bush to apologize, remember? Must be some leftist thing; imagine an American president apologizing for America in Europe after all the good we've done.
It would very well become one of O's worst mistakes..........how long will America accept "sorry"?
