A lot of people are upset that Obama is running around… What’s the word? I’m having a mental block on this. Well, not politicizing it. Oh, he’s “spiking the football.” He’s spiking the football over the death of Osama Bin Laden and he said he wouldn’t do that. He said he wouldn’t do it. He’s out there doing it, and he’s also saying that Romney would not have pulled the trigger. Folks, let me find something here. Here we go. Have you ever heard the name Admiral William McRaven? Does that name ring a bell? Let me read to you a story here from the Washington Post. Ahem. The Washington Post. A guy named Craig Whitlock. This is May 4th, 2011, a year ago.
“As US helicopters secretly entered Pakistani airspace Sunday, the Joint Operations Center at Bagram Airfield in Afghanistan was under the control of a square-jawed admiral from Texas who had labored for years to find Osama bin Laden’s elusive trail. Vice Adm. William H. McRaven, one of the most experienced terrorist hunters in the US government, had tapped a special unit of Navy SEALs for the mission two months earlier. A former SEAL himself, McRaven had overseen weeks of intensive training for a covert operation that could cripple al-Qaeda if it worked, or strain an already troubled alliance with Pakistan if it went awry. The search for bin Laden was led by the CIA, which painstakingly pieced together scraps of intelligence that eventually pointed to a high-walled compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan.”
You know I’ve always liked saying “Abbottabad.” It just rolls after the tongue. Abbottabad! It’s one of those words you like saying. “But when President Obama gave the authorization to invade the site, CIA Director Leon Panetta delegated the raid to McRaven, who had been preparing for such a moment for most of his career.” Uh, I wish I could cite my source for you. I can’t. I’m sworn to secrecy. But I’m just gonna tell you: They had to go call the president off the golf course and get him into that Situation Room an hour and a half before the attack so he was there for the photo-op. And if you’ll notice, if you’ve seen the picture of Obama looking with the deer-in-the-headlight eyes at the monitor supposedly of the op taking place, you see a golf shirt under that jacket that they put on him.
