Kudos to Making Bin Laden Sleep with the Fishes

Two of my main complaints about politics is that no one ever admits they’re wrong, and no one ever gives their political opponent any credit.  So here’s my Maya culpa - last night President Obama definitively proved me wrong, and he deserves a ton of credit.  As a McCain supporter, I thought President Obama would have a tiptoe-though-the-tulips style weak foreign policy.  While last night wasn’t the only time instance where he proved that theory incorrect, it was the most definitive proof that I was flat out wrong.  A weaker leader may have tried to capture instead of kill Bin Laden, a weaker leader may have hesitated in making the actual decision, a weaker leader may not have okayed a ‘at sea burial.’  All these decisions were not only appropriate, but needed.  Kudos President Obama, you’ll always be remember as the guy who got Bin Laden.

A second big congratulations goes to the military, CIA, and all other operatives that played a role in pulling this off.  Fortunately, America has learned it’s lesson from Vietnam and gives it’s service members the respect they are due.  However, many of these operatives and Special Forces members can’t be fully recognized for their exceptional service, as secrecy is obviously vital in what they do.  So a special thank you to those we don’t really know, whose job we often don’t fully understand, who sacrifice greatly without glory or adulations.  Kudos to a job so well done.
