Obama Is Still Spiking The Football Over Bin Laden Mission

MARK LEVIN: This was a man (Ronald Reagan) of enormous class. A man who did not, as Obama does, day in and day out look for ways to take credit.

When you’re President of the United States and you give the order to kill Osama bin Laden and Osama bin Laden is killed that’s all you need to do. That’s all you need to say. You don’t need to keep running out every anniversary, ‘I did this, I did that. Me. Me. I. I.’

We know from an internal memo, written by then-CIA Director Panetta, that it wasn’t exactly as originally reported through the White House talking points to their friends in the media, who you saw at the Washington correspondents’ dinner.

The memo shows of the president giving the order with a lot of ‘but’ clauses in it. ‘But if there are more risks, but if there’s this, but if there’s that, you come back and tell me.’ While anybody who even has a somewhat working knowledge about how the military works, in particularly the very complicated missions of this sort, events always change they change on the ground, they change in the middle of a mission. They change right before, they change right after. What are you going to do, call the president? Drag him off the sixth hole? No, you’re not.
