*Snip to the summary*
To sum it up, everything we as conservatives believe about our country's defense, the War on Terror, interrogation, special ops / black ops, Gitmo, and the realities of the world was validated. Our ideas won. Our tactics won. An enemy we never hesitated to call out was killed.
Everything liberals believe about the same was defeated. They are trying to take credit for a win in a war they never acknowledged with tactics they openly hate. With a childish liberal in the White House, that may not be evident to much of the country at the moment. But I predict it will be. Facts are facts. The adults won. The kids were along for the ride kicking and screaming. Americans' curiosity with how this all went down will bring this to light.

Something stinks about this whole thing...
A series of top-secret briefings at the White House on Sunday afternoon conveyed, with rising certainty, news of the operations success. At 7:01 pm, the president was told there was a high probability that bin Laden was dead.
So we are told he watched it real time and yet had to be informed it was a ‘high probability’ bin laden was dead......WTF?
I am sure they wanted to confirm it was actually OBL...testing DNA, blood, or whatever tests would conclusively confirm it was him. Could be a look alike or something. I would imagine in CIA and miliary terms that ‘high probability’ means we got him, but we won’t confirm until we have all the facts.
GREAT article. Thank you for posting this. Goes and lists most, if not all, of the idiotic ideas about the WoT and the military the left espouses.
Somewhere here on FR, someone posted that it was reported Panetta watched it, while Obama monitored it, or something to that effect. It appears he may have gotten bored, or whatever, and didn’t watch the entire thing, was my interpretation.
I think this is the reason that many people are skeptical of this event.
It is too much to take when Obama is out there calling for national unity.
Not long ago he and his ilk were trashing Bush daily. I can easily say that if Bush had beat his chest and failed to put on display the bodies of Saddam’s sons, we would never have heard the end to the 24/7 coverage on how Bush is lying.
More people have been dying in Afghanistan, yet we never hear a peep from the media. But when it comes to making that communist slime in the WH look good, it is 24/7 coverage on how grateful we should all be and unite.
Yesterday, today and forevermore, Bambi and the MSM will feign amnesia in letting you know what they said in the past. Luckily, most of us will not forget.
I saw that one of my Facebook “Friends,” (a hardcore lib) got into an argument with a conservative about who should get the credit for the bin Laden kill, Bush or Obama. His answer: “Obama is the one who is in office. End of story.”
Actually, if it is the end of the story, it totally ignores the beginning and the middle of the story. Suppose a kickoff returner catches the ball on his goal line, makes some great moves, shows terrific speed, and carries the ball 99 yards to the opponent’s one yard line. On first and goal, the fullback carries the ball into the end zone. According to the aforementioned libtard, the kickoff returner, getting some oxygen on the sideline, gets no credit. Zero. He’s not even in the game.
So by that logic, Harry Truman should have gotten credit for winning WW II.
I think the demonstrations were contrived.
I heard the same argument about 9/11.
It happened while Bush was president, so it was his fault.
As the article states, the left are just a bunch of kids, unable to think past the end of their noses.
And yes, Truman deserves the credit from making the decision to drop Fat Man and Little Boy, but that was just a small part of the overall effort.
Just as this operation was a small part, of all of the years that it took to even get to this point.
I'll celebrate OBL's death, but not how it's being spun.
I'm not about to forget how these people fought the methodology that helped kill OBL, and are now spinning how wonderful they are.
Brennan would not go into details about what sort of technology was used.
http://www.parade.com/news/ground-zero/featured/obama-monitored-bin-laden-raid-in-real-time.html and elsewhere, I saw it mentioned that Panetta watched it live, so it appears Obama etc in the photos released by the WH was NOT watching it live, but who knows? They lie abut things they don't need to lie about.
Very nice.........and true.......
We got bin Laden, not because of Obama, but very much in spite of Obama.
We got him because the ideas and plans he campaigned on were not utilized, and the well-thought-out and effective plans of the Bush administration - the adults - came to fruition.
I hope he's right in thinking people will figure this out in the end. The idea that Obama, taking credit himself, will be given credit for this, makes me physically ill.
Sometimes it is important to worry about HOW you do something. It is remarkable that the O admin came out to announce this before dotting the I’s and crossing the T’s.
They should have had an organized release with the verification in order as Bush did.
It is either really unprofessional or it is the way they wanted it.
With these people it could be either one.
I am sure they would like to pin people with the conspiracy theory badge to make us look crazy, but I tell you, those people in his administration are poster boys for Soros, and he isn’t anything but reality.
LOL! Only if he had replaced a republican.
Very well put. Obama did make the right call and I give him credit for that, but this is still a vindication for the War on Terror.
I’ve had the pleasure of listening to Rush devastate the hypocritcal and juvenile libs today. He’s putting it to them big time.......
Obama campaigned against every single thing that led to the death of bin Laden and now is taking credit for it.
(btw, Barney Frank is an imbecile!!)
Yeah, I enjoyed Rush’s monologue too.
Maybe check my tag line?????
Then how come his liberal friends claim it's "Bush's fault" for everything bad that occurred from Jan. 2009 - Present? The economy is far worse than it was during Bush's time in office, the debt is far higher, and the situation and death rate in Afghanistan is much worse than it was under Bush. Do I detect a double standard from the left?
As the saying goes, "If it weren't for the double standard, liberals would have no standards at all."
I saw that inimitable liar, Attorney General Eric Holder, testifying about whether enhanced interrogation (like waterboarding) led to the outcome of last weekend. First he said, "there was a mosaic" of events that was responsible for locating and ultimately killing bin Laden. When pressed with, "Was one item of that mosaic enhanced interrogation," he fled to the professional liar's safest hiding place. "I don't know."
So, Eric, you do know that there was a "mosaic" but you don't know whether enhanced interrogation was one of the pieces.
