Terminate With Extreme Prejudice

The Atlantic notes the differences between Bush’s and Obama’s counterterror policies.

An interesting difference to note. Taken from The Atlantic:

The decision to kill bin Laden outright was the clearest illustration to date of a little-noticed aspect of the Obama administration’s counterterror policy. The Bush administration captured thousands of suspected militants and sent them to detention camps in Afghanistan, Iraq, and Guantanamo Bay. The Obama administration, by contrast, has focused on eliminating individual terrorists rather than attempting to take them alive.
