"President Obama made the right call to give the green light to the mission."


This is all that matters. It's Obama's kill. Get over it...

Obama approved the mission, he deserves some credit for that.  But the mission was designed and carried out by the Navy.  To give the bulk of the credit for accomplishing this dangerous mission to anyone other than the Navy is an insult to them.

Since when does an Admiral out-rank The President Of The United States? President Obama has the final say and gave the go ahead.

It wasn't Libs that gave Obama a hard time when he said that he would send troops into Pakistan if he knew Bin Laden was there. In fact it was some in the GOP that criticized him. I guess that makes them dopey Cons.

man - if he is going to run his campaign on doing somethnig that any president would do then he is toast...  he is actually toast and will be heading back to Hawaii in January because he really has nothing to run on...  guys like Clinton and Reagan pretty much said during thier re-election campaign "look at my record"  Obama has to be a magician and try some slight of hand to get folks NOT to look at his record...  it's over for Barry, let's see if Mitt can do better....

It's been almost a year since President Obama's leadership and foreign policy bona fides were allegedly established by the operation that killed Osama bin Laden. A campaign film narrated by Oscar-winning actor Tom Hanks tells of the president's alleged solitary, agonizing decision.


With apologies to Vice President Biden, maybe President Obama doesn't carry quite as big a stick as Joe would lead us to believe.


Secretary of Defense, that says "operational decision-making and control" was really in the hands of William McRaven, a three-star admiral and former Navy SEAL.


"The timing, operational decision-making and control are in Adm. McRaven's hands," the memo says. "The approval is provided on the risk profile presented to the president. Any additional risks are to be brought back to the president for his consideration. The direction is to go in and get bin Laden and, if he is not there, to get out."


In other words, it was McRaven's call to pull the trigger or not on the raid.


Some would say that this is a distinction without a difference, sort of like a head coach in football drawing up the game plan and letting his offensive coordinator actually call the plays. Then, technically, President George W. Bush gets the credit, since it was on his watch our war on terror was declared, Navy SEALs and Special Forces funding was increased and the hunt for Osama bin Laden began.


The Panetta memo, rather than presenting a profile in courage, says "approval is provided on the risk profile presented to the president." This left enough wiggle room to blame the operation planners and controllers if the raid had gone as wrong as President Jimmy Carter's famous failure to rescue American hostages held by Iran. This memo left room for the blame for another "Blackhawk Down" snafu to be blamed on anyone and everyone but President Obama.



Life is tough, but it's tougher when you're stupid.

If you don't stand behind our troops, please feel free to stand in front of them.

Haha..dopier republicans didn't have the cajones to do it in Pakistan...not even McCain, let alone that sissy romney...



"From the beginning, candidate Romney like the GOP's eventual nominee John McCain not only opposed but mocked Obama's approach.  While McCain blasted Obama's hard line on Al Qaeda's safe havens in the tribal areas ("Will we risk the confused leadership of an inexperienced candidate who once suggested invading our ally, Pakistan?"), Romney protested:


"I do not concur in the words of Barack Obama in a plan to enter an ally of ours... I don't think those kinds of comments help in this effort to draw more friends to our effort..."There is a war being waged by terrorists of different types and nature across the world," Romney said. "We want, as a civilized world, to participate with other nations in this civilized effort to help those nations reject the extreme with them."

Totally agree with you ... Obama gets the credit on this one!
