Pass this on, make it a talking point for Democrats, make it viral.

    GOOD NEWS! Suck on that, Dick Cheney

    Two senior Taliban leaders have been arrested in recent days inside Pakistan, officials said Thursday, as American and Pakistani intelligence agents continued to press their offensive against the group’s leadership after the capture of the insurgency’s military commander last month.

     Afghan officials said the Taliban "shadow governors" for two provinces in northern Afghanistan had been detained in Pakistan. Mullah Abdul Salam, the Taliban’s leader in Kunduz, and Mullah Mir Mohammed of Baghlan were captured about two weeks ago in a raid on a house in Akora Khattack, according to a leader at the Dar-ul-Uloom Haqqaniya madrasa there.

    So here is your Talking Point for the Day on National Security if a wingnut says Obama isn't doing everything he can to keep America safe.

    President Obama has caught more Taliban Leaders in 1 month than Bush/Cheney did in 6 years

More below the fold

     The arrests come on the heels of the capture of Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar, the Taliban’s military commander and the deputy to Mullah Muhammad Omar, the movement’s founder. Mullah Baradar was arrested in a joint operation by the Central Intelligence Agency and the Directorate for Inter-Services Intelligence, Pakistan’s military intelligence agency.

    I have taken to heart the advice that Progressives should be just as loud about good news as we are about bad news, so, in that spirit, I gladly give you this GOOD NEWS - and no, it's not good news for John McCain.

    The Taliban played a central role in the planning of 9/11 and the training of the terrorists who launched that attack. The Taliban harbored Osama Bin Laden and American troops had Bin Laden cornered in the Tora Bora region of Afghanistan when then President George W. Bush and President Dick Cheney decided to let Bin Laden go so they could invade Iraq for Oil and declare mission accomplished.

    At the time it was a stupid decision that cost America the lives of our troops, plunged Iraq into chaos and drove America's debt through the roof, and most Americans do not know this.

    So let's spread the news. There is a new Sheriff in town, and we are finally doing the job we were supposed to do, the job that Republicans ignored for years and years.

    And now, under a new President, we are beginning to finally bring the Taliban to justice.

    More proof that ELECTIONS MATTER.

    2010 is upon us, with mid term elections only months away. It is time for EVERYONE who is opposed to the lunacy and corruption of Conservative governance to GRAB A MOP. It is time for us to FIGHT BACK.

    That starts with messaging. So let's spread the message far and wide, and let's Yell Louder when we do it.

So spread the GOOD NEWS. Make it viral. Shout it from the frigging rooftops, and Yell Louder!

    President Obama has caught more Taliban Leaders in 1 month than Bush/Cheney did in 6 years

    Put that in your coal pipe and smoke it, wingnuts.

UPDATE:

   More GOOD NEWS: Breaking: Taliban/HQ stronghold captured

US Marines seize Taliban headquarters, IDs, photos

    The only thing Obama is making America less safe for is chickenshit draft dodgers who want to scare America into voting against their own interests.

    The funniest part of this is that while Dick Cheney works the Sunday talk circuit telling everyone how President Obama is making us less safe Obama's policies are actually working to catch the Taliban terrorists that Dick Cheney and Republicans totally ignored for 6 years.

WIN/WIN

    If you look close, you can see the part where Haliburton moves it's hand up Cheney's ass to make him speak.

GOOD NEWS!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
