Glad they got bin Laden but Gates makes some really dumb statements from time-to-time.

Nowhere in the video did Gates say anything about betraying the Seals. The title is disingenuous.

Those polls numbers sure must have been near the lower intestine after the ‘donald’ started asking public questions about BamBamKennedy's origins.

I think when he addressed the soldier's question about their safety he was trying to say but not say in so many words that The Obama administration went back on their word not to leak any super secret information which could put the Seals at risk. What Gates did not realize was that when they were in the Situation room making the call Obama had his fingers crossed behind his back- Gates should know by now Obama is a dirty double crosser.

You’re right. I should have said he committed treason.

I've seen contradictory reports regarding who exactly gave the order to make the kill, so I think I will reserve judgment until I see/hear more evidence.

Obama has a long enough history of lying to make me doubt his version of the story.

The point is that everyone agreed not to speak about operational details, and then reneged on that agreement the very next day. starting with Joe Biden telling the world it was the seals. The white house will sell these men down the river, if they believe it will help the reelection efforts. Just my opinion, I could be wrong.

Americans can't get enough of the plucky president.

State controlled American media (SCAM) Headline?

Hollywood: Obama to star in action movie remakes, 1st opens in October 2012.
Move Over John Wayne!
TV pundits: "Oh, Gracious God, Thank You So Much! It’s such a blessing to be able to see you in the movies! Mr. President, thank you for taking time out of your day! Oh, gracious God, thank you so much!"

FYI, tonight on the John Batchelor show a NY Times movie reviewer was on absolutely ecstatic and raving about Obama and how recent events are just like the classic movie The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance. So here it comes from all media.. hip boots ready?

Exactly! It didn’t take guts. hussein obama was thousands of miles away from the action.

If it had gone wrong, he wouldn’t have lost a thing. He would have been credited by the liberal media for going after him.

Truth is that I doubt we’d never heard about it from the media if things didn’t go well. It would have been another buried stories.

Gates is about as lame as it gets. He’s about himself and securing his position of power.

The second shoe is still to drop. It’s coming and it won’t be fun for Obambi. Sadly not for our country either.
