CIA memo reveals Admiral McRaven, not Obama, controlled Bin Laden mission. “The memo puts all control in the hands of Admiral McRaven… the notion that Obama and his team were walking through every stage of the operation is incorrect. The hero here was McRaven, not Obama. And had the mission gone wrong, McRaven surely would have been thrown under the bus.” Well, only if they couldn’t pin it on George Bush.

Obama did’nt have much to do with this operation. The Admiral & Leon Panetta should get the credit. They pulled Obama off the golf course & kept Valerie Jarrett out of the loop, that’s how this operation got the go-ahead & worked.

The thing to remember is this. The only branch of the military that takes orders from the president is the marines. All other branches get their orders from the pentagon.

I would think since the President is the Commander-In-Chief that they all take their orders from him regardless of what service branch or unit.

Well the US Army Greeen Beret Special; Forces take their orders directly from the president of the USA. That branch was specifcally creatyed by JFK to sort of be the Presidents 911.

Rick: They still have a chain of command, so your assessment, though technically correct, leads one to the impression that the President commands the SFG first hand. this isn’t the case as far as I know. If you have better info. i’m not opposed to reviewing it. 😀

Amazing how Libtards continue to spew the MSM talking points without actually doing a little research (away from the MSM) to get the real facts about a story. You could smack them in the face w/a baseball bat full of facts and they still wouldn’t believe you. Ignorant dipsh*%s.

keep drinkin’ the Glennbeckistan Kool-Aid, freaks; you loons simply can’t handle the fact that Obama iced Bin Laden while your guy, Full-Bush, couldn’t get it done. However, Bush did manage to get 3,000 American civilians killed, the Twin Towers dropped, and The Pentagon hit. Oh, then there was Colin Powell’s slam-dunk UN cartoon show, WMD, Al-Qaeda links, $20bbl oil, hailed as victors, Iraq oil paying for the war, and Abu Gharib. Yeah, Full-Bush and five-deferment Dick-Head Cheney, like Mullah Mitt, would never fight, never send their kids to fight, but send everyone else’s kids to fight a worthless Iraq war.

Barry or Bush, it doesn’t matter. The President has little or nothing to do with the physical activity. The search was begun by George Bush and continued by Barry, but the real planning and action was performed by men that George respects and Barry despises, so taking credit for leading these men is abhorrent.

As for the rest of your incoherent rant, the only thing I can say is, you need to lay off the LSD and the Leftist c*ck for a few days.

“The memo puts all control in the hands of Admiral McRaven…”

You Jest!
Are you trying to tell me that Barry was a spectator only?
Are you saying that Mr. Affirmative Action would take credit for someone else’s work?
I would have never guessed that the Marxist Child King would claim to be one thing, when he was actually something else.

I refuse to believe it. That’s just the Rightwing Extremists attempting to belittle our Savior.

It’s getting closer to twenty than itis to twelve years ago, remember the first world trade center bombing was in 1993.

But Clinton didn’t have the opportunity to take Bin Laden into custody for it until he was president. Which of course, he decided not to do.

I’m surprised Obama hasn’t either taken credit for the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, or blamed George Bush for it.

Then by his own testimony his order failed, laden wasn’t brought to Justice, Justice was taken to laden.

That’s because no-one has told him if he likes that bombing or not yet. He’s still waiting for Jarrett, Mooch-elle or Soros to say go ahead boy you can support that one.

The only mission Obama was ever in control of was Mission Viejo, CA during the 2008 presidential election.

Mission Viejo voted for the twerp? I always thought that was a more conservative enclave.

TD’s are a badge of honor. Consider it a job well done and that you’ve gotten under some dumbass liberal’s skin. The exception is when a dumbass liberal gets enough of them to hide her post!!!

Give him credit when he and Jarrett held back for like 3 days. And when they did call it, they had to get him off the golf course. Now do you think if this was a mission he was really involved in he would have gone golfing that day.
He never admitted that enhanced interrogation was a large part of finding Bin Laden, but tried to take all the credit.
Baracka is a joke, the only things I give him credit for is high gas prices, failed stimulus, deathcare and class warfare.

While I hope O starts a long and pleasant retirement this coming January, I’ll still give him credit for this one. I can’t be so partisan as to not at least give him something.

That being said, remember the reports that there was a communications blackout for like 40 minutes between those executing the mission and the white house. I hope it was on purpose and they captured Bin Laden, tied him to a bed, then had the bomb sniffing dog tbag the crap out of him.

I know I know, I would prefer to be more peaceful than that, but that’s just my wishful thinking, I can’t help it.
