If true, this is not a good thing (even if the result was good). Although, in a Democrat administration, what can one expect.
I share your concern regarding the possibility of an override of the CoC, or more specifically in this case, the CiC.
But there is no way in Hell, that after almost ten years of hunting that SOB, and after all the lives lost, those we know about and those we don’t, that they were going to let OBL slip through their fingers because we have a pantywaist Muslim loving CiC.
Sorry... Your transmission is garbled... Say again...
But Zero goong to take full credit for the kill, regardless of the tactics employed, and the people who put the wheels in motion; which at the time WAS a legitiment CiC.
So in that regard, they were carrying out orders.
