This is a joke right?
Obama was not against the War in Afghanistan and campaigned on focusing more on it. He opposed the invasion of Iraq and history has proven that solid judgment.
He campaigned on being willing to go into Pakistan to get Bin Laden and he did it. McCain attacked him for this.
He has stepped up the war on Al Queda in Yemen.
Also what intelligence gathering techniques did he oppose? He opposed torture which aside from being completely Unamerican, it's also known by the FBI and the US military that it's not actually a way to gather intelligence.
The FBI interrogator who interrogated Abu Zubaydah notes all the actionable intelligence we got out of him, came before we started torturing him via waterboarding. What they ended up getting was a load of shit. Invesitgators who tasked with following up this intelligence came away saying 99% was useless and just wasted their time.
The techniques the CIA came up with was complete amateur hour.
The reverse-engineering techniques used by totalitarian governments to break people, not to get to the truth. Do you think the Khmer Rouge in Cambodia was interested in the truth? Do you think the US should use the same techniques as the Khmer Rouge.?
Also the legal justification for CIA torture was REVOKED during Bush's first term when Jack Goldsmith took over the Office of Legal Council.
. So are you saying that all these people were killed in 2010, 2011 and 2012 because of what happened before 2005? Bullshit. Simple bullshit.

Have you read Obama's Nobel acceptance speech? It will give you some insight into who he actually is. Both left and right often misread him.
