Media: NBC's presentation of "Rock Center with Brian Williams" last Wednesday night demonstrated that MSNBC's Chris Matthews isn't the only one who feels tingles up his leg when he talks with or about President Obama.
President Obama's victory lap and shameless, media-assisted political exploitation of the Navy SEALs' triumph continued with the program opening with the photograph taken in the White House Situation Room, now apparently open to public tours.
Administration bigwigs were shown watching the fruits of President George W. Bush's labors as Navy SEALs, acting on a trail of evidence gathered using enhanced interrogation techniques President Obama opposed, took out Osama bin Laden.
The president was shown sitting in the corner dressed in casual clothes, as he had rushed there after playing nine holes of golf at Andrews Air Force Base before heading to the Situation Room at around 2 p.m.
"The picture," said Williams dramatically, "was actually years in the making. When he was president, Bill Clinton spent 75 cruise missiles trying to kill bin Laden."
And missed 75 times, including those launched during the Monica Lewinsky affair and his impeachment. Close, but no cigar.
Michael Scheuer is a 22-year veteran of the Central Intelligence Agency who led the Osama bin Laden unit of the Counterterrorism Center from 1996 through 1999, and was Special Advisor to it from 2001 until he left the agency in 2004. He is the author of two books on the war on terror.
In a July 4, 2006, Op-Ed in the Washington Times, Scheuer dismisses former terrorism czar Richard Clarke's memoir on the hunt for bin Laden.

It’s the economy stupid. Wipe the Shinola off your face Mr. “Rock Center.”
Was the dog ping
Or close, and a cigar.
With greatest respect to Hansen, I think it's more the case that Hansen understands that it isn't that Obama "doesn't get it" but that he does ..... and the rest, Hansen cannot say publicly without being instantly destroyed by the same forces that are now slowly killing George Zimmerman, Glen Beck, and, their protagonists hope, Sarah Palin.
This is important. Hansen is in despair, and he is constrained in what he can say -- he can't say it all.
Very like Rome in the days of Julius Caesar, as a matter of fact -- or so said Cicero's letters.
Dog bites man - not a story
Man bites dog - a story.
Man eats dog - (not a story if the man is a democrat and President of the United States.)
Man eats dog - big story if it’s a Republican, conservative, or everyday citizen.
eff the New York Times and Washington Post...
