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

    EXCERPT

    Only the memo doesn’t show a gutsy call. It doesn’t show a president willing to take the blame for a mission gone wrong. It shows a CYA maneuver by the White House.

    The memo puts all control in the hands of Admiral McRaven – the “timing, operational decision making and control” are all up to McRaven. So 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.

    SNIP

    President Obama made the right call to give the green light to the mission. But he did it in a way that he could shift the blame if things went wrong. Typical Obama. And typical of him to claim full credit for it, when he didn’t do anything but give a vague nod, while putting his top military officials at risk of taking the hit in case of a bad turn.

    Yes, well this is killer - The DNC released a new ad accusing Romney of never going after bin Laden and this ad has the Bill Clinton voice over. Never mind that if Bill Clinton had accepted Sudan's offer to hand over bin Laden to us, 09/11 wouldn't have happened....the Dems really think we're stupid and have forgotten history as it really happened.

    The entire Obama campaign wil be about misdirection, outright lies, partial lies, and deception. He can't run on his record.
