This is just sad, the fellating:
But he made that decision to go without telling Pakistan and that took some real courage, as much courage as our Navy SEALs did in pulling off a near flawless operation.
Via the indispensable Q&O, where Bruce McQuain has this to say about that:
Yessiree Bob – not telling Pakistan was just as gutsy as flying into a foreign land, at night, nap of the earth, hoping no one sees your helicopter and blows it out of the sky. Then fast roping into a compound of hostiles, number unknown, engaging in a firefight and clearing it. Then exfiltrating. Yup, not telling Pakistan is just like that.
You’re right, Chamberlain forgot to use the buzz word of the day but let’s be honest she was going for a 3-point shot from half-court here and “gutsy” just wasn’t enough. Tying Obama’s decision to the courage of the SEALs?
I diagnose this as a severe lack of actual adults running the place, and the wannabe Woodwards scuffling along in the wake of the not-adults, hoping for a pat on the head. Of course, and this is what galls me, that dozy cow, this Wendy, is probably richer than hell. I am not anything like a fan of class envy, but you shouldn’t be that dumb and have money. It’s dispiriting.
