@oralloy,
Not true. They knew when he was in the Tora Bora cave complex and one could assume that they gave the info to the president.

More than a dozen Republicans tell House they can't attend votes due to 'public health emergency.' They're slated to be at CPAC.

(CNN)More than a dozen of former President Donald Trump's closest Republican allies in the House have skipped Friday's votes and enlisted their colleagues to vote on their behalf, signing letters saying they can't attend "due to the ongoing public health emergency."

But those members are actually expected to be in Orlando and listed as speakers at the Conservative Political Action Conference, an annual meeting aimed at energizing conservative activists and boosting their own profiles.

The members include Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz, who addressed the conference on Friday, as well as others who were listed as scheduled speakers -- such as Reps. Paul Gosar of Arizona, Jim Banks of Indiana, Madison Cawthorn of North Carolina, Ted Budd of North Carolina, Mark Green of Tennessee, Darrell Issa of California, Ronny Jackson of Texas, Mike Kelly of Pennsylvania, Ralph Norman of South Carolina, Devin Nunes of California and Greg Steube of Florida.
........
The move is especially surprising given that Republicans were furious critics of the system to vote by proxy during the coronavirus pandemic, even suing over it and often ridiculing Democrats for staying at home and demanding they return to Washington.

"Leaders show up no matter how uncertain the times are," Cawthorn tweeted last summer. "The Democrats are cowards for not showing up to work."

Top Democrats on Friday reacted strongly to the news, first reported by CNN.

"Apparently hypocrisy has become a tenant of the Republican Party," said House Rules Chairman Jim McGovern, a Democrat of Massachusetts. "Let me get this straight: these Members can't vote in person because of the pandemic, but they manage to attend CPAC? They were even maskless at this super spreader event. It's outrageous!"

The US attacked Tora Bora too when we thought he was there.

No I don't. I'm always quick to admit it when someone shows that I am wrong.

So you're saying that the US attacked al-Qaeda at Tora Bora without the president's being given the intelligence that bin Laden was there?

@hightor,
No. My comment about not having intelligence of his location was in reference to the long period when no attacks were being made against Usama bin Laden.

I had forgotten about Tora Bora. However, since we did attack him there, I don't see how that counts as an instance of us not trying to kill him.

Actually any other leader didn't do the same thing, instead they went off to invade Iraq for no good reason.

I might also add that we did have a reason for attacking Iraq.

So long as Saddam was in power, our troops needed to be in Saudi Arabi to prevent Saddam from invading. And our troop presence on Saudi soil was going to be a major liability in the War on Terror.

It's a shame that your point isn't valid though. Because if it had been valid, it would have reinforced my point about giving presidents credit for their decisions.

@revelette3,

Nice to see the subsidies expanded.

Interesting that the Democrats are still screwing over the poor by stiffing them with Medicaid. But I guess that's what the poor get for trusting progressives.

He seems to be more conservative than most of today's republicans, why is he still a democrat?

What's wrong with being a conservative Democrat?

@MontereyJack,
You also did good after you lynched Mr. Nixon.

But then Mr. Carter was unable to get anything done in the post-lynching environment that the Democrats left the country in.

Do you remember what happened in the 1980 election?
