Background on the Bin Laden Op Devised by Obama All by Himself
For the record, ladies and gentlemen, in his brief announcement last night President Obama used the word “I” ten times, he used the word “me” three times, he used the word “mine” five times, and the word “my” three times. Navy SEAL Team 6 was not practicing “courageous restraint” last night. “Courageous restraint” is a new operational tactic that the president, on his own, has instituted in Afghanistan. “Courageous restraint” is not firing on terrorists who might be shielded by women and children, civilians. Last night we know that a woman was killed acting as a human shield for Obama. SEAL Team 6 — Osama. Right.
I better say “Bin Laden” when I mean “Osama” because I’m just gonna get confused. I feel like I’m Ted Kennedy in here, who himself got it all screwed up. Navy SEAL Team 6 was not practicing “courageous restraint.” Also, folks, will the Bush lawyers, who suggested harsh interrogation techniques — suggesting that constitutionally and legally those techniques were okay — be hailed as heroes, or will the regime continue to pursue them legally? So, yeah, I don’t want to be misunderstood about this. You know, the program is focused on the truth. I am a host focused on the truth. President Obama deserves credit for keeping in play the Bush-Cheney policies in dealing with these people.
