It Needs to be Asked

What was gutsy about Obama authorizing the operation to take Osama bin Laden?

Seriously, where was the tough call?

As near as I can tell, the only tough part would be the idea that if it was less than successful it might end up hurting Obama politically.  To any patriotic American, that’s no choice at all.

I don’t believe that.  I believe that there was nothing gutsy about the call at all — it’s a call that virtually any of us would make, any day, any time.  If you have a chance to kill or capture OBL, take it.

  1. It was “gutsy” because it was also unprecedented, historic and unexpected. The White House needed a new adjective.
