The decision to kill Osama bin Laden is being called a 'gutsy' one by the main stream media, but was it? What was Obamas choice? To not go? Yeah right, with a high probability of bin Laden being in the compound, Obama HAD NO CHOICE. What would have happened to his 'popularity' when (not IF) it got out that Obama had a very good chance of catching the worlds #1 mass murderer and terrorist but didn't do it? It would have destroyed any chance of his re-election. We won't hear the main stream media point this out, but it is obvious.
Remember, A US military man pulled the trigger, not Obama. Not to long ago they almost didn't get paid. Because of politicians. Obama is a politician and was in the middle of that fiasco.
