SEALs: Obama Taking Credit for bin Laden ‘Cheap Shot’

Serving and former US Navy SEALs are criticizing President Barack Obama for taking the credit for killing Osama bin Laden and using them and Special Forces members as ‘amunition’ for his campaign.

SEALs bashed the president to Britain’s MailOnline after Obama released a campaign ad called ‘One Chance.’

The ad features former President Bill Clinton praising Obama’s decision to order bin Laden killed. The White House is also marking the anniversary of bin Laden’s death Tuesday with a series of briefings and interviews designed to highlight Obama’s decision that day.

Montana State Rep. Ryan Zinke, a former Commander in the Navy who spent 23 years as a SEAL and led a SEAL Team 6 assault unit, told the Mail that  “The decision was a no brainer. I applaud him for making it but I would not overly pat myself on the back for making the right call.

“I think every president would have done the same. He is justified in saying it was his decision but the preparation, the sacrifice – it was a broader team effort.’

    Everything Obama does is a cheap shot at someone or something. Nothing new here.

    Well, he’s in good company, right up there with John Purple Heart Kerry, Al The Internet Gore and Richard I served in Vietnam Blumenthal, liars and scum bags all.

    And when the Green Berets take out Koby or whatever his name is in Africa, O’Bumfuk will take credit for that, too.

    Just hope he doesn’t chicken out like Kennedy with the Bay of Pigs or Clinton with Somalia resulting in the Black Hawk incident (or, for that matter, Truman with China).

    Not only did he take credit for basically no effort on his part, his blabber mouthed vice caused those men to be a target of retaliation.

    If he is taking credit for getting obl, then his administration needs to take responsibility for getting a number of our brave SEALs killed.

    Don’t ever forget that picture with him in the war room watching the mission.

    He was just taken off the golf course and had no idea that the mission had commenced. He had a jacket covering his golf shirt, and was hunched over like a little kid trying to grasp what he was watching.

    He’s a puppet, a pretender and a putz!

    Everything oblowhard says is a “cheap shot” at someone else. Even huffpo thinks this ad is disgraceful…imagine that?

    God Bless our Troops. Especially our Snipers.

    Here’s the money quote in that article.

    “….Chris Kyle, a former SEAL sniper with 160 confirmed and another 95 unconfirmed kills to his credit, said: ‘The operation itself was great and the nation felt immense pride. It was great that we did it.”

    ‘In years to come there is going to be information that will come out that Obama was not the man who made the call. He can say he did and the people who really know what happened are inside the Pentagon, are in the military and the military isn’t allowed to speak out against the commander- in-chief so his secret is safe.’

    Senior military figures have said that Admiral William McRaven, a former SEAL who was then head of Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC) made the decision to take bin Laden out. Tactical decisions were delegated even further down the chain of command….”

    KUDOS to Chris Kyle!!

    Great article. One thing would make it even better Cardigan, if you could re post it with that picture of O in his golf shirt sitting in the corner of the situation room about to piss his pants.

    “…he should be thanking the guys who put their lives on the line to do this. He does so in his official speeches because his speechwriters are smart.”
    BINGO! He has no clue, whenever he DOES give lip-service to the troops, it’s not his doing.

    @Stirrin and SgtZim, I’m glad you mentioned that scene in the situation room. He looked so out of place and even more confused than Biden, and that ain’t easy.
