This story regarding whether or not the SEALs were specifically instructed to kill UBL has now officially gotten out of control. Obama is trying to have his cake and eat it too, and in so doing, he has completely buddy fucked the SEAL Teams. Already stories are being written by Obama syncophants and AQ sympathizers implicating the SEALs as essentially murdering an unarmed man. Meanwhile, on background, more "Senior Administration Officials" are saying that POTUS ordered the SEALs to assassinate bin Laden, but there's more:
The SEALs’ decision to fatally shoot bin Laden -- even though he didn’t have a weapon – wasn’t an accident. The administration had made clear to the military’s clandestine Joint Special Operations Command that it wanted bin Laden dead, according to a senior U.S. official with knowledge of the discussions. A high-ranking military officer briefed on the assault said the SEALs knew their mission was not to take him alive.
WRONG FUCKING ANSWER! If you order the SEALs to kill and not capture bin Laden then there is NO DECISION FOR THEM TO MAKE! They are following explicit orders of the President of the United States, but Obama does not have the sac to stand behind his decision and support the very people who are responsible for the only foreign policy victory of his Presidency. Sure, Obama is content to accept the congratulations from the media and his supporters for his "gutsy" decision, but when the rubber meets the road he says, "Hey thanks SEALs for killing bin Laden like I told you to. But you didn't expect me to stand behind you when my left wing media starts going after you as murderers? Oh you did? How cute."
This is the most disgusting and craven betrayal of leadership that I have ever seen. Also, where is the NSW Leadership? JSOC? They are keeping their mouths shut like good little soldiers while their own men are trampled underfoot and mischaracterized as having unilaterally decided to shoot an unarmed man despite following explicit orders to do so. Way to go.
