Radovan Karadzic Captured: Clinton Finally Gets His Man

July 21, 2008

The Serbian war criminal and architect of the genocide of more than 8,000 men and boys in the Muslim enclave of Srebrenica was finally captured. Bill Clinton finally got his man.

You remember President Clinton’s war in Kosovo.

This is tongue-in-cheek, of course; Bill Clinton had nothing to do with his capture. Serbian security forces captured him after 13 years on the run.

I’m not ridiculing President Clinton; I’m merely preparing to make a comparison.

The fact that it took 13 years to get karadzic ought to give the liberal critics of President Bush who have long-ridiculed him for not being able to capture or kill Osama bin Laden a rare opportunity to face reality. When a powerful man has resources, an area in which to hide, and a population that will enable him, he can elude capture indefinitely.

Osama bin Laden has all of the above, plus some of the most inaccessible terrain on the planet, and plus the clearly off-limits territory inside Pakistan.

It has been frankly amazing to me how far liberals have run with the “Bush can’t even get bin Laden!” slogan given that it has always been a purely trivial rhetorical point. The simple fact of the matter is that President Bush has done as much as any American president could prudently do to get the murderer responsible for 9/11.

The arrest of Radovan Karadzic gives those who believe in and long for justice hope: it took years to get this murderer, but this monster is finally in custody. Hopefully, the day we capture or kill bin Laden will soon come.

I trust that the United States – under any future presidential administration – will never rest until it captures or kills Osama bin Laden, or is able to directly confirm his death.

Good job, Serbia. This is a day to celebrate justice.
