    Obama did release the SEALS on bin laden, and if the attack on Benghazi had not happened at the same time crowds in Cairo and other moslem cities were rising up in protest, the limited security that was in Benghazi may have responded more effectively. Though, RPGs coming through the windows can be very disorienting from what I hear. Obama’s having way too much fun with the Big Bird zingers…after the debate…would have been of more use during the debate. But generally, Chip, just not your best work.

    The fact that mattered with Obama-Osama
    was not the order to the SEALs but to the
    CIA, years earlier, to restart the manhunt that
    had basically been abandoned by GWB. He
    famously said he “didn’t care much about
    that guy” anymore. From a strategic level
    this may have been okay (OBL was out of
    the loop pretty much after 05) but from an
    emotional point of view it was a terrible thing
    to say. President Obama realized that and
    felt the pain still in the American people. He
    send out the spies, he got the intel, he let
    the military do their thing and he protected
    the mission. Yes, you read that right. He
    and his political team protected the mission!

    -

    To this very day nobody was able
    to explain to me why he released his long-form
    birth certificate two or three days prior to
    the mission, without any need to do so. I say
    that was deliberate, to create “chatter” on the
    air and distract from any preparations. And
    if I’m right he’s the smartest President the
    U.S. has ever had!

    It was NOT “two weeks” for the administration to note Benghazi was NOT just a result of “demonstrations”, the weapons used were quickly identified as being “something else”, and they said so. Now, as for “security” and “intelligence”, Issa, and the Republicans, notably as well Romney’s “shoot from the hip” immediate comments, made things around the world WORSE for our foreign service officers and staff.


    “Average Americans” do NOT understand what’s going on with these operations, or “security”, or even what’s going on in the world. Sharing proprietary, confidential, or secret information with the press and “people” is totally irresponsible, and what Issa and Republicans have done. Obama DID credit the SEAL teams and others who “got bin Laden”, and yes, some information probably shouldn’t have been released, but the Pakistanis and others WERE releasing photos and information as well, and sometimes it helps to control the source.

    I find wars on anything but nations stupid.
    Look at the “War on drugs” or the “War on
    poverty”. The “War on terrorism” is as stupid
    as the (non declared) “War on HIV/AIDS” – you
    win some, you lose some, but the virus is
    out there. And, NO, I don’t have a way to
    solve the problem, sorry…
