His right-hand man, Daley, gushed about what a "gutsy" move Obama made it ordering the strike. From the looks of it, the guts belonged to the guys who actually carried out the strike. I've read that when the rubber met the road, BamBam couldn't bring himself to give the nod and that Panetta and Gates gave it the go-ahead lest the news leaked out and UBL escaped again.
That's because the Pentagon is full of professionals. If it was up to them, we might not know Osama was hit for quite a while. They would want to use the intel before the planet was aware we had the information.
Thank you. I appreciate it. I was pretty tired when I worked that up.
We’re on the same page there. Some day we’ll get one of those inside the Obambi White House books, and this guy will look less manly than he does now.
Our men in the field were very sharp. Good job, despite what the U.N., the Human Rights Commission, and the I.C.C. think.
Interesting take. I pray you are wrong, as I suspect you do, as well.
The inability of this administration to get its story straight tells me that they don;t know the story. They didn;t know what was going to happen going in and they did not know what happened coming out.
The “unnamed administration sources” are completely out of the decision making loop.
Exactly my point. Obama and company should have made the initial announcement that we had found and taken care of Osama but left any further briefing to the military.
Good point there. The military is in a rather sticky wicket at times like this.
Yeah, I can see Zero scream like Clinton or Holder, “it’s him and the ATF SEALS, what not, who did it, not me!”
Clinton claimed no responsability for Blackhawk crash in Mogadishu... this time was a close call again because they did not want to us armor or what not other form of heavy gunship cover.
Amen. VERY CURIOUS, but NOT to “reporters”!!!
