Former AG: Obama had memo drafted to blame military if Bin Laden assassination failed

You will remember that about two weeks ago, I reported that President Obama voted present on the Bin Laden assassination. Contrary to his attempts to present himself as a leader who made a 'gutsy call' to kill Bin Laden, Obama left the decision up to commanders in the field. Well, it's worse than that.

On Friday, Sean Hannity showed an interview with former Attorney General Michael Mukasey, who said that Obama had Leon Panetta draft a memo to protect the President politically in case the operation failed. If the operation to kill Bin Laden had failed, the US military was to be blamed.

Let's go to the videotape. This video is devastating to Obama, and not just because of his attempts to cover his tail in the Bin Laden assassination, but also because of the comparisons to Abraham Lincoln and Dwight Eisenhower.

Much more from my friend Jim Hoft here (Hat Tip: Memeorandum).

I think he's talking about the same memo already mentioned, not a separate one, speculating on why it was drafted and how it was to be used. Hoft misunderstands what the guy is saying if he thinks there was an even worse, second memo out there. After all, Mukasey doesn't know any more about what the White House or Panetta are doing than we do. The major point to grasp is that as a non-state actor Al Qaeda didn't pose a threat to the national security of the United States any more than an alliance of mini-AQ spin-offs would. Their strength was the willingness of state actors like the national Taliban to host them or as with the Saudis and the Emirates to enable their funding. And AQ's diminishment leaves the Taliban and anti-American factions and nations in the Levant untouched. That O is using his death as an excuse not only to signal an end of the "war on terror" but an end to foreign national security threats generally (to concentrate on further failed redistribution-affirmative-action-green energy border-and-over-line un-Constitutional escapades is the story here. Not this or that memo.

Interesting, General Dwight D. Eisenhower wrote two memos for release after D-Day. One, if the invasion failed, took the responsibility entirely on himself. The other, in the event the invasion succeeded, put all the credit for success on the servicemen and women of the Allied force.

That is a manifestation of a man of honor, as opposed to the dishonorable Barack Hussein Obama's drafting of a memo for use if the raid to kill bin Laden failed, blaming the Admiral commanding and the troops.

Even the wretched Jimmy Carter took personal responsibility for the failure of the Iran Hostage mission. (As well Carter should, after micro-managing the whole operation and making the military cut the force down from about 600 troops and many more aircraft and helicopters, to about 90 troops and a number of aircraft and helicopters without a margin of safety or error.)
