The news is still all over the map. Go. Read. You won’t find much here because I know things are still being digested. However…..
1 – YAY to everyone involved!!!!! From the army who picked the bad guys up who ended up getting interrogated. To the CIA who asked the questions in the right way. To the President who made the decision. And to the SEALs who did the deed.
2 – NAY to Pakistani intelligence and military. I understand that we want to keep these guys open to us but sheesh people, it was bin Laden. We continued to drone you and give you cash as you protected the one guy we really really wanted?
3 – I know we have every right to pick on the left for being happy, and that they would never do the same for the right – but give them a break eh?
Give Bush the credit for all the steps leading up, but who knows, maybe if instead of EIT (and I am a long time supporter by the way) we used donuts, this would have happened years ago. ? Yes you can see cause and effect in hindsight, but you don’t get a chance to see othercause and othereffect in hindsight because it didn’t happen that way.
And as for the President, we knew who he was when elected. If he needed to sleep on the decision, that is who he is. Bin Laden was in place for years. In the end, he gave the order, just like he did with the Somali pirates and unlike the last big D President. Let him gloat a little. He’s a long way from re-election.
