    Leons new job is at the Pentagon, and Petreaus' new job is the head of the CIA.

    Like nobody ever saw this coming...

    I don't know. I've been saying right along that obama went along with the plan out of fear that had it got out that he didn't act, he would be worse off than if the mission failed. The article seems to support that.

    Panetta needs bonifieds if he is going to run the Pentagon. What better way than to give the intel to the Navy Seals.

    What a move....

    how Obama had shaped the final assault plan.

    “I don’t want you to plan for an option that doesn’t allow you to fight your way out,” the President told operational planners at the meeting, according to the notes of one participant.

    The backup landed to lift its passengers to safety. “The President created the ‘fight your way out’ option,” explained an administration official.

    I am thinking that the Navy Seals could use a guy like Obama. A guy experienced in fighting his way out...of...

    FDR was in a chair. He led the US through Europe, Africa and Asia.

    Why is it right wingers can't give the black guy credit on anything? Is the hate that big? They carded him. They've hounded him. He was right in getting Bin Laden when McCain called him "naive" and said we wouldn't go into Pakistan because they are our friends, no matter what the intelligence. Bush said he didn't think about Bin Laden six months after 9/11. Worse, he disbanded the CIA unit that was formed for the sole purpose of getting Bin Laden. The unit Obama started up again when he took office.

    Obama said his number one priority was to get Bin Laden FROM DAY ONE. After Bush said, "Truly I'm not concerned with Bin Laden. I just don't care". Yet Republicans want to "take credit". AND they are still calling Obama names. 8 in 10 Republicans think Bush is the one we should be thanking, the guy who gave up. Who turned down the invitation to the 9/11 ceremony.

    Palin said Obama "pals around with terrorists".

    I'm not even going to quote what that rat Cheney and his awful daughter have been saying since Obama took office.

    Almost every month, there is another story about Obama taking out another major Al Qaeda leader and finally, he got the biggest one of all, including massive amounts of intel.

    But Republicans hate him and despise him so much, they can't give him any credit. They even question his schooling.

    It's the Republicans exposing themselves as a "dirty party" NOT Obama. But I already knew that.
