cameroncrazy1984: I'm guessing this is a "shut up, guys" greenlight.

Which, ironically, will probably only make them keep submitting bullsh*t because hey, at least one will get greenlighted.


Which is why it should've been this other one--which, incidently, was actually upvoted--that got greened instead.

I give Obama the exact amount of credit for the OBL raid as I give President Bush for invading Iraq.

FTA: Former U.S. Attorney Michael Mukasey told Fox News Channel host Sean Hannity on Friday night that the Navy SEAL mission to kill Osama bin Laden was preceded by "a highly lawyered memo" from CIA Director Leon Panetta - one designed to insulate President Barack Obama if the operation failed.

Michael Mukasey, U.S. Attorney General under Bush II, makes a outrageous claim on Sean Hannity's show on Fox News? What a farking, outright LIE!!!

I read the memo in the article (also quoted by Jackson Herring above - thank you very much). It's the memo to proceed with the operation after President Obama reviewed its risk assessment, giving clear directions to go in, get bin Laden, and if not there, get out. If any other risks arise, bring them to the President for his review.

/Farkin' yellow journalism at its worst, i.e. use of faked interviews, misleading headlines, pseudoscience, and a parade of false learning from so-called experts.

As a conservative, I am ashamed that this got greened.

I took Sgt Otter's comment is that Bush is fully responsible for the Iraq War fiasco as is President Obama for the OBL raid in Pakistan.

/How's it been, what_now?

Pretty good! Haven't been around as much. Busy w/ work. Yeah, I got what Sgt. Otter was saying. I was being sarcastic.

This is what we have to look forward to isn't it? Republicans trying to downplay Obama accomplishments. Even the one where he had Osama Bin Laden killed. Osama Bin Laden, the guy who planned and carried out the attacks on 9/11. Republicans are no longer allowed to call themselves Patriots. It is abundantly clear that they have put party way before country.
 
2012-05-08 02:49:14 PM
If Bush hadn't given up on Bin Laden and he'd actually have been shot on his watch then he would appear on the news wearing two New York Fire Department helmets at the same time in front of a banner of an eagle that shiats bacon onto terrorists while drinking champagne from Bin Laden's hollowed out skull.

To paraphrase Newt Gingrich: These are dispatches from Cloudcuckooland. If the bin Laden raid had gone wrong, how would the White House have avoided blame? It would have waved around a memo which mentioned that "additional risks are to be brought back to the President"? Seriously? In the Hannity interview, Mukasey compares this memo to Dwight Eisenhower's pre-D-Day "message to be given in the event the invasion failed." That's the sort of comparison that reveals how weak an argument this is. But this must be why the Obama campaign celebrates Christmas every day that the media discusses OBL -- it drives Bush loyalists absolutely insane when they realize Obama gets the credit. Link

The GOP mantra "If we believe it, it's true.". And if they don't "farking liberal media".

Fox News has gotten so predictable that they've become one of Obama's greatest propaganda arms through their incompetence. Thanks again Hannity.....you're not helping.
 
2012-05-08 04:18:30 PM
Whatever. Nixon had the same thing prepped in case the moon landing went tits up.
 
2012-05-08 04:19:32 PM
This obviously proves that Usama bin Laden isn't really dead, and therefore Usama bin Laden is automatically the president and Obama is demoted to chimney sweep.
 
2012-05-08 04:19:55 PM
Killing Osama sure put a lot of people back to work in a completely recovered economy.

Keep crowing, libs.

Why did they copy the memo with the article when it just shows that they are grasping at straws? I was thinking about going along for the ride until I read what was actually written.

Tigger

If Bush hadn't given up on Bin Laden and he'd actually have been shot on his watch then he would appear on the news wearing two New York Fire Department helmets at the same time in front of a banner of an eagle that shiats bacon onto terrorists while drinking champagne from Bin Laden's hollowed out skull.

yep, this.

And you would have said something like "This is how we deal with terrorists in Texas..well maybe in other states too, and then we taxidermy the skulls and hang 'em. He will look mighty fine in the den. Sorry I had to kill you old buddy. I mean USA USA"

Why do Republicans love Osama Bin Laden?

Still?

By the way, they tell us Obama is completely responsible for the operation by "setting up a fall guy if it failed." If they want this victory to go away, they really need to stop saying Obama was in charge while trying to say he had nothing to do with it.
 
2012-05-08 04:25:41 PM
"One definition of a great leader," Mukasey added later in the interview, "is somebody who takes less credit than he should and takes more blame than he should. And that's not what we've got now."

Does this accurately describe ANY POTUS since roughly around Kennedy's time?
 
2012-05-08 04:25:41 PM
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.

Pretty responsible of Obama.

I'd sure as hell call back the mission if I found out the SEAL Team waded into a house full of kids who would have been in a cross-fire...

gilgigamesh: EnviroDude: Considering he mulled the decision to pull the trigger for 10 months so he could "get it right", this is not a shock.

Captain Obama - avenger at large!

Wait, I thought he was overruled by his generals and didn't pull the trigger at all.

Or was that last week? I am losing track here, brother. Help me out.


* First Obama was mean and killed OBL when OBL should of been captured and given a trial even if it meant putting the lives of SEALs in danger.
* Then Bush actually had it all done and Obama just followed Bush's instructions he had laid out years later.
* Then Obama did nothing and his military decided it all and Obama was just a no back bone spectator to afraid of stopping things.
* Recently it has turned into "Well EVERYONE would of made that decision" even though Mitt Romney is on record for saying he was against making that exact decision.

I think these cover most of the GOP's butthurt about Obama actually getting OBL.
 
2012-05-08 04:25:57 PM
Guys... if you fall for this stupid "take your enemies greatest strength"(Obama's decision to let the Navy do its thing) "and make it a weakness ploy". You are a farking stupid piece of shiat who lets asshole republicans get elected to office because they had a campaign to muddy up the water just enough to get you not to vote. Its just a dumb farking tactic that republicans perfected in the late 80's, which Karl Rove absolutely loved so much that he taught it to all his goons. I cant believe people fall for this shiat.

Tell the truth, are you just a bit of code like an Obama-Hate-Bot?

I mean, you are never more than a few posts in and spewing the same old jibber jabber. Is this really fun for you?

And Hitler killed all the Jews, right?

Yep ... the right has absolutely NOTHING in this fight ... it's truly hilarious watching someone suffocate under their own shiat.

Here's the memo:

"Received phone call from Tom Donilon who stated that the President made a decision with regard to AC1 [Abbottabad Compound 1]. The decision is to proceed with the assault. 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. Those instructions were conveyed to Admiral McRaven at approximately 10:45 am."

dailycaller.com

First, how is this setting up McRaven as the fall guy? Seems like more a straight go ahead, with an (obvious) note that if anything changes before it happens, tell the big guy. Also, that's a "a highly lawyered memo'? Really? It's farking handwritten, for fark's sake. Looks like more of a note of a phone call than a "memo", anyways.

Anyone have any idea what percentage of morons in the USA watch FOX News and buy all their BS? I live sorta close to Cincinnati/Indiana/Dayton and all the hillbilly fools around here watch it 24/7 and take it as gospel.

Please tell me the rest of the country isn't this stupid.

Nadie_AZ: Cyberluddite: cameroncrazy1984: The admin policy here is ridiculous.

I believe the admin policy is now "greenlight any trolling shiat that the people who actually pay to use this website think really sucks and massively downvote." If other businesses used the same business model, Microsoft would be pitching Vista as its top-end OS, and you would be seeing lots of ads for New Coke.

To be fair, they only do this every other year. You know, election year. In come the paid trolls and off they go.


The policy is "greenlight stuff that generates lots of discussion".
Trolling headlines do this.
The big secret is that you guys take the greenlights here way more seriously than Drew and his admins do.

This is classic attack someone's strength politicking, the right wing will be attacking Obama on the Bin Laden killing for the next few months. Notice the attorney shill use verbiage similar to the Obama grandstanding rhetoric from that started the other week.
 
2012-05-08 04:27:44 PM
Maybe he should be more like Romney, who would consult his lawyers before taking any action. He did say that would be his Weeners to an Iranian threat.
