    Hmmm … Obama Passed Up Earlier Opportunity To Get Bin Laden

    Hmmm … Obama Passed Up Earlier Opportunity To Get Bin Laden

    So reports Jake Tapper of ABC.

    Apparently bin Laden’s compound was identified positively in March, and the military wanted to drop a dozen or so guided bombs and reduce the compound to ashes. 

    According to Tapper, Obama passed on the request because there would have been no body to recover and hence no DNA to positively identify bin Laden.  And there would have been collateral damage and civilian deaths.

    In hindsight, it was a good move.  But hindsight is hindsight. 

    Among the many lies which have permitted the public consciousness is that George Bush “let bin Laden get away” at Tora Bora.

    If yesterday’s strike were unsuccessful, or if bin Laden had moved on to a new location in the prior weeks, would Obama have been excoriated by the press for letting bin Laden get away?

    That was a rhetorical question, right?

    If yesterday's mission had failed, we would have never heard about it. The fact that it was successful, has now moved Jimmy Carter back into the lead as "worst president ever" by the slim margin of his Iran hostage rescue failure.

    Oh, give it a rest, guys. Bill, this bit of muck is really beneath you. It's the sort of garbage I'd expect from HuffPo and the like.

    Obama passed on the request because there would have been no body to recover and hence no DNA to positively identify bin Laden. And there would have been collateral damage and civilian deaths.

    And even with DNA to identify the body, the stupidity goes on. (There's apparently a faked photo making the rounds, too. You'll have to filter those yourself – "-photo" doesn't do it.)

    Well, NC, you are the local expert on stupidity.
