    Thank you for posting this


    Obama, the message is clear YOU did not kill Bin Laden. The Military worked for years to make that happen. You had nothing to do with it. Taking credit like you did is absolutely disgusting. Propping yourself up on the sacrifice of those who lived and died for that day shows your arrogance.

    God Bless the United States Military!

    It's not just that he took credit for what our troops did, it's leaking operational information about how it went down that should've been kept quiet. What the fuck is he doing telling the world that stuff, even if it isn't classified. Wasn't Gates or Panetta that told 'em to STFU!

    Yeah, but I don't remember Bush leaking operational details.

    It was Gates who told Tom Donelan, the National Secury Advisor

    It's Donelan, among others, who was quoted in the NYT article

    This is not about "who" took credit......

    It's the "how"

    Bush's NSA wasn't flapping his lips revealing classified info and planning a Hollywood movie.

    No, but Cheney leaked the identity of an agent.

    Yeah, and Scooter Libby went to jail for it too. Bush didn't pardon him either. So when did anybody from the Obama go to jail for Fast and Furious or from all the leaks we've had over the past few years.

    Sorry - you're dead wrong.

    Richard Armitage was the leaker. Cheney was never involved and never accused.
