    I honestly could care less. Obama got wise on war when he got in office. No doubt that he lost some of his more liberal speech on the subject. I am just glad that OBL is dead. He needed to die. There are other people in this world that need killin now, and sadly it is only when certain players have the balls to declare it open season on their ass that we ever consider doing anything. I mean your boy Clinton didn't have the stones to do anything but drop bombs. Hell he had how many opportunities and reasons to kill OBL himself? Let alone people like Aidid and so on?

    Bottom line...at least Obama had the cajones to call for the trigger to be pulled...I was seriously doubting his gumption as an American before that. At least now I know he is just a liberal American. (there was a smack of sarcasm in that).

    Again Yep. However, that will be the next Dim lie. After all, this does not make the Kenyan look good. And somehow they've got to get around to blaming Bush for the book.

    If this goes to trial ...

    1. It will not be a 'behind closed doors' trial. Too much public interest and too many 'dream team' wannabe, pro bono ambulance chasers wanting their '15 minutes'.

    2. The guy is wrong, period. I had a SCI clearance, and I know exactly what paperwork he signed ... been there, done that myself. But, the JAG knows that the ambulance chasers will want to get every scrap of paperwork (including doodles) that has ever been written about the subject. Even if the information is redacted ... the JAG knows what the problems are. Eric, on the other hand, won't care for two reasons ... first, it's a white boy defendant and second, he cares not about national security ... just like the Kenyan.

    3. The Kenyan and Eric both will have their pink slips long before this even gets to trial (assuming there is one). The new AG will let this can of worms crawl back into the pile of bovine processed oats whence it came.

    My personal opinion is this ... the guy should have submitted the manuscript for DoD review. However, had he actually followed that proceedure, the book would NEVER have been published because the DoD would NEVER have released it for publication. The Kenyan can (and did) breech any and all security protocols, but woe unto a mere mortal who does the same.

    I can't wait to read the book. The spattering of information I've seen thus far doesn't make the Kenyan muzzie look too good ... especially the fabricated story about his death. I guess this is MY moment to copy the Kenyan and say, "I don't have all the facts but ...". The Kenyan tried to make himself look like a good CINC and yet again failed. Remember the Seals that took out the Somali pirates? In an ex post facto comment, the Kenyan tried to take credit for what the Navy ship Captain did ... give the order. And even worse, the Kenyan wanted the Seals to come to the WH so he could "honor" them. They did not go because they knew that showing up was their death sentence and a death sentence for any and all of their family members.

    In conclusion, my opinion about the 'threatening letter' is that is just a noise making threat (a threat is something that you might or might not do). This is a bunch of 'Kenyan' wash (was going to use the word hog, but I don't want to insult either the pigs or Harley Davidson). The noise will echo for a very short time and then go away (did I happen to mention something about bovine processed oats?).

    "Kenyan", "Dim", do you have a problem using the correct name for people you are referring to?

    They are correct names. BTW ... I've said it before, and apparently you missed it so I'll say it again ... I love it when you libs get your shorts all tied up in knots over these names. Think back to the days when you cry babies had such a swell time with the litany of foul names you used on George W Bush. As Dirty Harry said, "Make my day" and keep it up with the whine machine noise. You Dims can dish it out ... you just can't take it.

    God, I love it.

    Your post is interesting, but juvenile.

    The only thing I don't like about bins death is it was too easy. It is unfortunate they couldn't have shot him in the guts first and let him lie on the floor in pain until the search was complete then take the head shot. The case could be made for shooting his wives as he laid there watchiing too.

    Not very patriotic to try and profit from what the Seals did.

    I have a close friend formerly CIA .. He was at the barracks in Beirut when all those Marines were killed. He would NEVER write a book.

    In the raid to get osama we were neither, it was justice and retribution. He deserved a worse death. He deserved to suffer and see his loved ones suffer and his wives were not innocents. They were complicit in hiding this monster and the fact they would marry such evil makes them as bad as him. Every person in that compound should have been executed. Collaborators get the same treatment as perpetrators in a war and this is a war.

    I just read the link Maggie posted. This guy might be in some serious legal trouble.

    What are you talking about? How is writing a book about the OBL raid "wing the reputation of the Navy Seals under the bus?"
