Well Done, Sir

Allegedly President Obama ordered a military operation that killed the jihadi vermin, Osama bin Laden, ending a decade long hunt for the misborn ibn al khanzeer.

While I have some lingering doubts as to the truth of this, they don’t really matter very much since most of the world is taking this good news on faith. Hence I will accept these claims at face value until the unlikely event that they’re proven false.

That being the case, proper accolades are much in order, irregardless of my overall feelings about the Obama Regime, their near total lack of concern over those feelings, and the improbability that any of them would ever read this post:

Well done, Sir! Fucking well done! Huzzah!

To loosely paraphrase the First Lady, for the first time I’m proud of something you’ve done as President of my country.

President Obama acting as the POTUS and C-in-C gave the order for DEVGRU and the CIA to undertake a “kill mission” – codenamed Operation Geronimo – to exterminate Osama bin Laden in t’s compound in the affluent suburb of Abottabad, Pakistan – a mere 35 miles from the capital, Islamabad. Obama ordered the commencement of Operation Geronimo without notifying the Pakistani government due to realistic fears that they would help Osama bin Laden escape.

To paint this in a negative manner, as America’s enemies, both foreign and domestic, will certainly do, President Obama unilaterally violated the territory of a sovereign nation and violated several articles of international in order to assassinate a private citizen in a private residence, killing multiple others in the process of this act.

More accurately stated, President Obama put the needs and desires of the American people before the sovereignty of a “state” that created and continues to support the Taliban and Al-Qaeda and did not allow the puling sensibilities of foreign interests, most of whom are no friends of America, to get in the way of doing his duty.

It was a job well done, both in specific execution and in the tone of the message it sends the world.

    Yes, but what were the true motivations? And did this act not go against the very tenents upon which he originally campaigned? Was the intel that supposedly came from Gitmo the real reason behind his decision to not shut it down after all? Everyone is dancing in the streets right now, but what will they say in a week? A month? A year?

    I will credit the man only with making the proper decision, albeit from the corner he was undoubtably up against. But that is all.

    Penny,

    I couldn’t begin to tell you what his true motivations were; I can and have come up with a large number of possible interlocking motivations for the act, some good and others totally self-serving. I doubt that any one of them alone was his impetus.

    And, rather shockingly, it wasn’t any sort of departure at all from Obama’s campaign position on the matter:

    What Ive said is were going to encourage democracy in Pakistan, expand our nonmilitary aid to Pakistan so that they have more of a stake in working with us, but insisting that they go after these militants.

    And if we have Osama bin Laden in our sights and the Pakistani government is unable or unwilling to take them out, then I think that we have to act and we will take them out. We will kill bin Laden; we will crush Al-Qaeda. That has to be our biggest national security priority.

    As for Gitmo – I’ve no clue, but it wouldn’t surprise me if, after getting access to the truth, Obama hadn’t push too hard for its closure.

    As for what will happen and what people will say going forward – Does the name Goldstone ring a bell?

    My latest has this within it. I’m trying to find the words to properly encompass my feelings, but I try not to speak so unless I’ve just damaged myself painfully.
