re: #96 windsword

From the horse’s mouth you get it. Obama didn’t try to manage the rescue effort. In fact, HE DID NOTHING that influenced the actions of the military. Therefore, Obama does not deserve credit for the rescue effort’s success, as Charles claimed a few days ago.

I’ve read your other posts in this thread and it sounds as though you believe that BHO deserves no credit for the success but had it ended in tragedy, he would have gotten the blame.

It is very simple; it was a successful operation; it happened on his watch; he was briefed and allowed the operation to proceed, investing the local commanders with the appropriate discretion to act and the hostage was rescued. It happened on his watch—he gets the credit. It falls apart-he gets the blame. That’s what it means to be CIC.
