      No politician is going to completely relinquish this and be accused of not protecting the country in the case of a major attack. They like to get re-elected.  Yes Obama does not have to worry about this, but he is still sensitive to public opinion and other Democrats do have to face re-election. I don't condone this, but it is the reality.

      Solution:  Change public opinion!

      Osama won even in death because he has caused up to expend  thousands of lives, huge amounts of money, and to give up our freedoms.
