Obama Admin Drafted Memo to Blame Military If Bin Laden Mission Failed

A recently disclosed memorandum from then-CIA Director Leon Panetta shows that the president’s celebrated derring-do in authorizing the operation included a responsibility-escape clause: ‘The timing, operational decision making and control are in Admiral McRaven’s hands. The approval is provided on the risk profile presented to the President. Any additional risks are to be brought back to the President for his consideration. The direction is to go in and get bin Laden and if he is not there, to get out.’

Which is to say, if the mission went wrong, the fault would be Adm. McRaven’s, not the president’s.

Hi cap,
So are you saying the raid was real? And showing respect at that time was real?

Yes, it was real and it is real.

But the heck with trying to be nice to Muslims NOW??

He is being nice to Muslims. We aren't at war with Islam, we aren't we are (and I don't know why we still are) at war with radical idiots who use a religion to further their right wing cause, and they aren't Republicans.

This is SMART??

Yep. He killed the worlds most wanted terrorist. Using it for his campaign is smart.

Am I missing something?

Common sense maybe?

Common Sense would dictate this--- If you brutally search and destroy human beings in a sovereign country that you consider to be your allies. You then et caught. You now tell the world that you have treated those said individuals with do respect. AND add, for religious reasons. THEN you keep reminding the world every chance you get to publicize your candidacy
The brutality, respect and usury then become PURE HIPOCRACY.
Now that's common sense ljb
