Osama Finale

May 4th, 2011 | by Sqotty |

Ace of Spades has a good piece on the tracking bin Laden timeline, well worth reading.

Meantime, my thanks the men and women of our Armed Forces and our Intelligence community for doing what was necessary and asked of them to bring down one of the most evil people in history. I also send thanks to George W. Bush for taking the political risks in creating an environment to gather and evaluate the intelligence necessary to bring down bin Laden.

Finally, I have to give credit where credit is due. Obama called the correct shot by sending in spec ops to go in and take bin Laden out. He could have done a Clinton and ignored it, or he could have sent in a drone, which probably would not have gotten the job done, or at least leave uncertainty, or he could have lobbed in a cruise missile and flatten the neighborhood, also a lousy choice. As risky as it was, sending in troops to do the job was not only the best option, it was the right option. I don’t know if others would have made the same choice, but Obama got this one right, and my thanks go out to Obama for getting this one right.
