First off Obama did not get Osama bin Laden. Members of Seal Team Six went in and got bin Laden. Obama sent Seal Team Six into Pakistan on intelligence gathered by George Bush. And let’s get real, Obama sent no one anywhere. Obama turned to his Military leaders and they chose who to send in. Yes I am a Soldier I live and breathe Army green, I wouldn’t have it any other way, and I know that sending Seal Team Six in was the right call, they are the best. Yes the Army has Special Forces Operational Detachment-Delta, better known as Delta Force, and they are one of the most elite forces in the world. But Seal Team Six is the best, hands down. And I guarantee Obama has no clue what the difference is between the two groups. So for Obama to say he got bin Laden her is lying. He was president when the intelligence gathered prior to him being elected found bin Laden. We need to separate what he was handed on a silver platter and what he actually did. He decided that the interrogation tactics used under Bush to get the intelligence that led to Osama, was illegal. So if Bush did not get the intelligence it never would have been gained.
Obama’s using the downfall of bin laden as his single greatest achievement is a lie. Yes the killing of Osama bin Laden was one of the greatest intelligence and military acts in recent memory, but it is NOT Obama’s to take credit for. Obama taking credit for this would be like me claiming I have the Congressional Medal of Honor, a lie. Do not be fooled into believing he had anything to do with getting bin Laden other than approving the operation.
