Skip to comments.Biden: Bin Laden killing most 'audacious' plan in 500 years

Vice President Joe Biden is the biggest cheerleader of the president's decision to raid Osama bin Laden's compound and, on Monday, he offered new praise for the choice Obama made last spring.
You can go back 500 years. You cannot find a more audacious plan. Never knowing for certain. We never had more than a 48 percent probability that he was there, Biden said at a fundraiser in Morris Township, N.J.

Patton’s Normandy breakout.
MacArthur’s Inchon landings.
Just in case no one has mentioned these.
I’d say D-Day June 6, 1944 was more audacious that the Bin Laden raid.
Joe Biden - History’s Idiot.
How about the “Raid at Cabanatuan” in WWII?
He is the dumbest VP in history, hands down. He may be one of the all-time dumbest public servants but, there are numerous contenders for that title in the House alone over just the last ten years.
The real audacity is to assume DumBO did this and Bush or McCain would not. Personally, I don’t think ZerO had any part in this. He gave Paneta an order at CIA to get Osama when he came into office, and, until, the operation was underway and POSOTUS had no way to stop. After all, if he had failed to get bin Laden, he would be toast. And, it would have come out.
Biden and 0 are looking at it from their buddy UBL's point of view....it is pretty audacious to think UBL would come out on top during a raid by Navy Seals.
Joe Biden was selected to be the Obama admininistration’s white lawn jockey.
Great list! Add the shooting down of Adm. Yamamotto, the architect of Pearl Harbor.
48% chance? I think his name was on the mailbox.
The Pearl Harbor attack was #2, IMO. Although if you count the erdication of the US, UK and Dutch navies in Asia in the first three months of WWII, Yamamoto is unrivaled.
Idiot Biden is boasting about taking out sitting duck Bin Laden, defended with small arms, when it was Bin Laden who was behind what I consider to be the most audacious and innovative and consequential single attack ever executed. The 9/11 attack was asymmetric genius in converting non-weapons (civilian aircraft) into kinetic projectiles and applying the force of those projectiles exactly in places where maximum damage could be inflicted. And the damage was simultaneously military, economic and political.
Audacious, in my mind requires complete surprise thus ruling out Normandy and others where the attack was inevitable and only the date unknown.
To rank high on historical significance the audacious attack must be consequential. This would rule out the Doolittle Raid and Benedict Arnold's slog through Maine to reach Quebec as they were not consequential.
Don’t be ridiculous! No Navy SEALS were involved. Obama did it all by himself. Haven’t you studied from Zinn’s “The American People’s Destiny Fulfilled At Last”, Columbia University Press (2057)?
“audacious”?! In the last 500 years?!
I’m not a swearing man, but I couldn’t help it. The first thing that popped into my head was WTF?!
Re: This man is quite probably psychotic and delusional.
I would change the statement to read he IS psychotic and delusional
The warriors that carried out the mission came away with a great deal of precious intel - that Bambi immediately rendered useless for political gain - by broadcasting the fact that the mission had taken place.
As soon as the other cockroaches knew OBL had been found, they scurried out of their current locations and disappeared.
Barry has no understanding of what it means to be an American
1521 Spanish chancer Hernán Cortés with a few hundred men conquers the Aztec Empire.
I’m sorry, but the Doolittle Raid was very much “consequential”, in two militarilly applicable (so setting aside the morale impact) ways: first, the Japanese drew a significant number of aircraft and their pilots, aircrew and support personnel back to the Home Islands from the combat zones as a hedge against the US trying something like it again and second it gave Yamamoto the argument he needed for the overreach of Midway.
To your post I would add..
Third it was a shot in the arm for our nation. We were reeling from our losses up to that point with no sign of any victory on the horizon. It was the first time we bloodied them and we rejoiced in the action.
Forth it made every Jap look up when planes were overhead, even their own, and wonder if the Americans were back. Masterful psyops.
Teenaged Marines storming the beaches at Iwo Jima..........
Biden et al is so full of himself.
Joe, I agree with you. Bin laden’s killing of the 3000 people on 9/11 was the most audacious plan in 500 years.
Whatever influence on Midway, the Doolittle Raid might have had, it was too indirect to be consequential and that battle turned mostly on very bad luck for Yamamoto, IIRC, in having the wrong planes refueling on the deck at the wrong time and not on overreaching by Yamamoto. Don't war gaming replays to this day show Yamamoto’s forces doing much better than what actually occurred at Midway?
Lots of FReepers mentioned great feats of military history. Just gonna add one that is near and dear to my heart. Rolling Thunder, in particular, Route Pack 6. God bless the mighty Thud and those who flew her.
It’s a shame that plugs is so stupid that he does not even relize what an as* he sounds like when he opens his mouth.
Joe Biden has lost whatever sense he ever had, if he ever had any!!!
Say it isn’t so, Joe.
Yes, in the house we do have the island will tip over if we move all the troops there idiot and the can the rover go to where the astronauts planted the flag moron. There certainly is a large pool of almost entirely democrats.
Killing an old man in his house in a friendly country. Not exactly daring.
The question is: Are they that stupid or do they think we are that stupid?
