Yes. Too much is being reported.
Not sure. Other.
"Never fear. Him is here" - Captain Chaos (Dom DeLuise), Cannonball Run
Mace Windu: Then our worst fears have been realized. We must move quickly if the Jedi Order is to survive.
This operation had been in the wind for months. The White House failed to have a plan in place as to what response would be if the mission succeeded. (One can only hope there was a plan in place if it had failed.)
The misinformation that went out is disconcerting. OBL was armed...no, he wasn't. OBL used his wife as a shield....no, he didn't. There was a huge firefight...no, there wasn't. OBL's son was 'taken'...no, he was killed. OBL was armed...no, he wasn't. Are we releasing photos? Or not? Personal meeting with Seal Team Six increasing the likelihood that their identities will be revealed.
IMO, the release of this information and the way it was done was designed to make political hay. I'd rather think that than believe the White House's lack of planning was a cock-up.
Thank you, Quazi!
"He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
Cicero Marcus Tullius
