Posted on 05/07/2012 8:53:26 AM PDT by US Navy Vet
Former Attorney General Michael Mukasey told Sean Hannity tonight that the Obama Administration drafted a memo to protect the president from blame if the mission to kill or capture Osama Bin Laden would have failed. That way Obama could blame the general instead of taking the blame himself. Mukasey wrote about it this week in The Wall Street Journal.
That was a highly lawyered memo (designed to protect the president politically)
I think theres going to be more thats going to be tumbling out about that escapade but so far that memo is enough.

I’ve just about stopped watching Fox and the rest since the Florida primaries. I’ve not missed anything, but I’d like to see what they say about this if anything. I’d like to see if those POS reporters ask the POS press agent about the POS imposter in chief.
I’d love to see this memo. In reality it might not be as bad as it sounds now, and they’ll put a spin on it, but I’d love to see the memo.
Fecal Material like this os going to FORCE me to VOTE for Mittens! ^%**^ it!
Don’t stand too near Obama if there’s a bus close........
Obviously, "risk factors", additional and otherwise can always be found, a posteri, in the face of disaster. The memo in question was not drafted as a contingency, as most people here seem to be assuming. Rather, the admiral was given authority to proceed, but the memo was worded to make it clear that if anything went wrong, it was the admiral's ass and *not* Obama's that was on the line.
To me this is worse, he abjured responsibility and then claimed credit.
I was wrong, I can despise Obama even more than I did.
Obama clearly, fully and realistically expected the LSM to use this thin reed to vilify the military man in command and protect himself in the event of failure.
I still cannot hate the LSM more than I do.
Remember, Affirmative Action recipients are not required to accept responsibility.
That, standard procedure when ‘Carter’ “botched” the hostage rescue? Or is it typical for all presidents?/s
The Mukasey piece in the Wall Street Journal should be an eye-opener for people who worship Obama.
“The Buck Stops.....Over There!”
Thanks to you Army Air Corps for this one...
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
I almost wish the mission had failed to turn up bin laden./sarc
Former AG Michael Mukasey will be on Megan Kelly’s America Life shortly and talking about it
How did Mukasey find out about it?
I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God.
So what do we do when Part One of the Oath conflicts w/ Part Two?
That sounds EXACTLY like the Obama regime we all know and *choke* love.
This is the most disgusting Obama revelation to date. It’s much more than our proud and brave military should be asked to bear.
Obama is a sick person. The SOB needs to go.
At this point in time with this clown, this Chicago Street Punk in the White House I think we have all pretty much figured on this sort of behavior, thus I can’t really get all surprised, or shocked myself at such news.
This guy Obama, and every single damned one of the impaired Leftist “brains” that occupy the cranium of our Government today must be removed one way or the other.
