He Didn't Pull The Trigger, So NO CREDIT FOR YOU!

Choke on it.

So basically, we're supposed to choke on a memo that proves Obama gave the order to proceed with the raid?  So, because the memo proves he gave the order, it proves he didn't give the order?  Is that what you're saying?  I haven't seen you this smug about a choking since you quoted anti-Semite Andy Martin! lol

I especially find it amusing how right-wingers are claiming the risk profile portion is "wiggle room" to blame things on McRaven if the operation failed.  Not only is that backed up by absolutely nothing, it doesn't even make sense.  The risk factor was very high.  If the situation changed, then the president would need to be notified and decide to change tactics. 

We all know that Admiral McRaven was in charge of the Joint Special Operations Command, and that he carried out the raid.  This is ancient news.





I wonder what McRaven thinks of Obama?

About Obama, without a question to prompt him, [Admiral McRaven] waxes lyrical and at length. The planning and decisionmaking for the bin Laden raid, he volunteers, "was really everything the American public would expect from their national leadership.""The President was at all times presidential," he says. "I would contend he was the smartest guy in the room. He had leadership skills we'd expect from a guy who had 35 years in the military."

So I guess George H.W. Bush wasn't responsible for Operation Desert Storm, because Norman Schwarzkopf was in charge?

Commanders-in-chief make decisions and delegate terms and conditions that the commanders in the field are obligated to follow. That's called "leadership."

But to right-wingers, this is a leader:

What's funny, is that if the mission failed, right-wingers would be pointing the finger right at Obama.  Just like they did Carter when the sandstorms occurred.  Don't think for even a split-second they wouldn't blame Obama.  Hell, Lindaman tried (and failed) to blame Obama for the BP spill.

You guys tried this bullshit when the Situation Room photo was released, and you failed there, too.

You right-wingers are only flailing like this, because of Bush's failure.  And also because people like McCain were against going into Pakistan.

Obama deserves huge credit for keeping his promise.

It's hilarious that flag-waving right-wingers out themselves as being completely clueless as to how the military works. lol
