The narrative now is that the decision to go after Bin Laden was “gutsy”, it was a tough call. Really? The Obama administration and the media are pushing this idea. So I have a couple of questions.
Is it a tough call to ok a mission that we’ve been planning for ten years? Is it a tough call to go after the key leader to the “most dangerous” organization in the world, the man who orchestrated the killing of nearly three thousand Americans? Is it a tough call to authorize a mission much like hundreds of mission that Special Ops have done all over Iraq and Afghanistan? Is it a tough call to authorize a mission that most of the world already assumed was a go if Bin Laden was found? Humm, we must have redefined the meaning of tough and gutsy.
It was a good call. Gutsy? Not really.
