What a lot of BS, when did Obama ever say that it was "HE" that got Bin Laden. This is a typical Fox news type beat up that can't stand it happened on Obama's watch. After all it was Obama that gave the nod, had it have gone belly up it was the end of his presidency. This is never mentioned in comment, it was a highly risky thing to do as oppossed to just send in a drone. But they wanted to make sure they got their man. So Obama took a huge risk himself politically.
As a any member of the military he should keep his mouth shut as he and everyone else are there to serve the government of the day. If he or she doesn't like it then make choices at the ballot box.
If you are going to make these BS arguments then, what about the FBI preventing 9/11 under Bush's watch. Obama could have a field day picking shifting through that intel to show gross neglect of the Bush Admin.

Oh, please, if it went belly up he would have just blamed someone else for the screw up. He never takes responsibility for all the wrongs and always takes credit for the rights that he didn't even do.

"""And finally, last week, I determined that we had enough intelligence to take action, and authorized an operation to get Osama bin Laden and bring him to justice.
Today, at my direction, the United States launched a targeted operation against that compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan. A small team of Americans carried out the operation with extraordinary courage and capability. No Americans were harmed. They took care to avoid civilian casualties. After a firefight, they killed Osama bin Laden and took custody of his body."""

zzzzzzzzzzzz..he was probably golfing.

"I said that I'd go after bin Laden if we had a clear shot at him, and I did."
