Take No Prisoners II

My good high-school friend, Lieutenant John "Cappy" Robertson -- a platoon leader in Viet Nam who humped into the bush a lot -- sends this to me:
This is what the Navy Seal team looked like when they went in to get Bin Laden. A couple of things to notice: 50 caliber sniper on the right. Knee, knuckle and forearm protection. Various plastic/wire ties. Absolute identity denial to protect their families. Free choice of footwear. Fourth from the right has three artillery simulators and CS gas grenades on his belly. He's the 'shock and awe' guy. This is a group photo of Seal Team Six; can you imagine the look on Bin Laden's face when these guys came through the door.
[I'm thinking hash marks in his u-trow. - ed]


John goes on:
But let's be clear on this: OBAMA did NOT kill Bin Laden. An American sailor, who Obama, just a few weeks before, was debating on whether or not to PAY, killed Bin Laden! In fact, if you remember a little less than two years ago, his administration actually charged and attempted to court-martial three Navy Seals from Seal Team Six, when a terrorist suspect they captured, complained they had punched him during the take-down and bloodied his nose. Obama’s administration further commented how brutal they were. The left were calling them Nazi's and Baby Killers. Now all of a sudden, the very brave men they vilified are now heroes when they make his administration look good in the eyes of the public. Obama just happened to be the one in office when the CIA finally found the bastard and our sailors took him out.

Essentially, Obama only gave an answer, Yes or No, to him being taken out. This is NOT an Obama victory, but an AMERICAN victory!!
And John adds this interesting historical footnote:
OBAMA'S OWN WORDS TRAP HIM:

2008: "Navy Seal Team 6 is Cheney's private assassination team."
2011: "I put together Seal Team 6 to take out Bin Laden."

"2008: "Bin Laden is innocent until proven guilty, and must be captured alive and given a fair trial.
"2011: "I authorized Seal Team 6 to kill Bin Laden."

2008: " Guantanamo is entirely unnecessary, and the detainees should not be interrogated."
2011: "Vital intelligence was obtained from Guantanamo detainees that led to our locating Bin Laden."

"Those who have had freedom and lost it will never see it again!"

"Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for dinner.Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the outcome."
Thanks, Cappy, and thanks for your service, brother.

@War Planner,

I really, really, really love this post.

The history of Obummer's anti-military words puts it all into perspective (for those of us who refuse indoctrination).

Listen, the best thing would have been to bring Bin Laden to Barry, so Barry could prove his manhood. Oh well, Joe Biden would be crappy too.
