so; Link- The path to Osama bin Laden’s death didn’t start with Obama - The Washington Post First- I was one of if not the first to congratulate Obama ( the forum was bombarded with almost simultaneous bulletins etc. that night) , here at USMB for taking out Bin Laden. It was not an easy decision, the blow-back could have been fierce ( ala April 1980, Eagle Claw, Carter) if; a) he wasn't there, b) the plan was jacked and failed c) it turned into a full blown man down Blackhawk type deal, ergo d) I am not one of those that thinks it was easy and he doesnt deserve credit, he does and the rest is sour grapes, he got him, live with it and be glad we did ... So now that the qualifying bullshit is out of the way ..a few points that have collected over the last; a) The Dick Durbins investigation as to the destroyed Videos of the enhanced interrogation sessions and his accusations that Bush ordered it, were dead wrong. An apology is in order. b) Pelosi was indeed told , face to face that water boarding was in use, on whom and what they got in the way of Intel. The media owes her lies air-time. c) The seeds of intel that we later harvested, having grown into the hard intel that put Bin Laden where he was and how we knew it, were planted in the Bush years, period. This should be acknowledged by Obama. ( I wont ask theta they acknowledge that intense techniques got this info. because I am not unrealistic, they never ever will just say yea, no water boarding, no intel, so asking them to jump thru a hoop I know they wont isnt really fair) d) The wheat, doesnt harvest itself. Obama had to give the go, he did, he gets the credit for that and gets to say so. Unlike many, I have no issue with someone using Bin Laden imagery to make a point as long as the point is apt and dignified. HOWEVER; I do have an issue when they spoke against the very same, Hillary ran an ad where in Bin Laden was a member of a montage of bad people thru out the world, the message being you wanted Hillary to deal with these folks not her adversary at the time, Obama. Obama took offense at that ad and its use of the Bin Laden imagery, further the left and the msm took after Bush for his use of 9-11 imagery in 2004. Obama has also made remarks more than once, as to not spiking the football and then, spiking it repeatedly. Now we have Rock Center and the Brian Williams special, where in they visit the situation room and a prime time hour of End Zonespikes. I am having a hard time imagining Eisenhower (D-Day) , Kennedy ( after the Missile Crisis) doing same, because, well, they didnt. Its only May 3 ..whats he going to do, play this till Nov. 6?
