    He gave the order...he did not lead them in any way, shape or form.

    What 'Gutsy Call'?: CIA Memo Reveals Admiral Controlled bin Laden Mission


    "The timing, operational decision making and control are in Admiral McRaven’s hands.

    Yes, just like any other President would defer to.

    It was a no-brainer because if he didn't make the call and word got out the shit would hit the fan.

    On the other hand, if bin Laden wasn't there and word got out, the shit would still hit the fan.

    So he merely did what any President would have done. Nothing heroic in his decision.


    The Seals are the heroes.

    But he couldn't be bothered to take 5 minutes out of his day to sign letters to the families of the lost SEALs.

    You can eat all of Obama's shit you like. Just don't expect me to believe you when you say it's yummy.

    Why does this matter?

    I didn't when Rummy was doing it with the thousands that died in Iraq and Afghanistan.
