Hail to the Chief

News that Osama BL was killed by US Navy Seals last night was great news — he was our public enemy number one and his time on earth had run its course.  It would have been great if we'd taken him out many years ago, but that he left forcefully on our terms is awesome.  (Versus, say, passing of kidney failure in a cave somewhere.)

President Obama's delivery of the news late last night was equally amazing — the Commander in Chief briefing the American people in dramatic fashion.  Taking personal command of the situation over the past several months and then giving the green light for the operation to move forward — very cool.

Now I suppose we'll have to wait for Donald Trump to weigh in and somehow take credit, as he and other haters may call the president's handling of the situation into question — who knows, maybe he'll question that the news was fabricated and was hatched, played out and filmed on a Hollywood back lot. 

But this post isn't about boorish attention-deprived media whores.  President Obama should take a bow on this one.  President Bush put this effort into motion and Obama finished the task — hats off to them both.  And hats off to the fine men and women of the armed forces who risk their lives for our freedom, and whose precise execution of this strike sent the devil home without losing one of their own.

One thought on “Hail to the Chief

  1. Actually, the whole event was exposed to be a FRAUD. CIA man [Steve Pajentic (?spelling?)] with connections to Afghanistan, was interviewed on http://www.infowars.com and exposed the Osama had been died since 2002 and explained why. Also, before you pat Obama on the back some more, maybe you should check out information like the article presented below

    WASHINGTON – June 1, 2011 – GOP Presidential candidate Rep. Ron Paul (R-Tex.) on Tuesday warned of “dictatorship in Washington D.C.” while on a campaign stop in Mason City, Iowa.
    “We’re not on the verge of having a king, but we are on the verge of having way too much dictatorship in Washington, D.C.,” said Paul, comparing the U.S.’s current situation to a Biblical tale in which the ancient Israelites demanded, against their own good, that a king rule their land instead of God.
    “Our rights come from our Creator, not our government,” added Paul according to the The Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier.
    Paul, who announced last month that he will run for president for the third time, noted that he had recently observed a seismic shift in American politics.
    “The mainstream is changing,” said Paul. “The mainstream wants balanced budgets, sound government and personal liberties – that is (now) mainstream. The shift is in our direction – obeying the Constitution for a change,” he added.
