Look, if the OBL kill-mission failed does anyone seriously think that the mainstream media would have held Obama accountable?
Of course not. Just as they covered up his disgusting 20-plus year association with Jew-hater Jeremiah Wright—and when revealed there was only one soft-ball question from the MSM—they would, instead, savage one of their favorite liberal targets: a rogue U.S. military.
Gutsy call? Look, I’m all for killing terrorists and terrorist leaders. But we no longer take prisoners to interrogate and extract high value intel. That’s because Obama thinks its mean to imprison genocidal Islamists in Gitmo. Thus, it’s drone warfare which is Hollywood cool but profoundly limiting. And while Obama is deleting individual jihadists he’s losing the Arab Muslim Middle East to a poisonous brew of Salafists and Muslim Brotherhood, while funding the jihadists of the Palestinian Authority.
Obama was taking no chances with the OBL assassination.
Former Attorney General Michael Mukasey told Sean Hannity… that the Obama Administration drafted a memo to protect the president from blame if the mission to kill or capture Osama Bin Laden would have failed. That way Obama could blame the general [Admiral William H. McRaven] instead of taking the blame himself. Mukasey wrote about it this week in The Wall Street Journal.
“That was a highly lawyered memo (designed to protect the president politically)… I think there’s going to be more that’s going to be tumbling out about that escapade but so far that memo is enough.“
