    what I understand is the bottom line of this diary - that President Obama may get a political bonus by seeming tough if he can launch a few drone attacks in the next week or so.  Whether it's true that people may reflexively see "strong leader" in that (however stupid that may be), I'd sure hate a narrative that this is WHY the attacks were launched.  Only thing I'd hate more is a president who actually took decisions like that for a purely chest-thumping political advantage.

    I hope that I interpreted your diary incorrectly...
