Week one of the post Osama bin Laden week and POTUS still travels through the country like a Rock star acting like he has been the Hero of the OBL execution, like it was all his personal victory.
No matter if it is the media friendly orchestral appearance at Ground Zero shouting “We Will Never Forget” (like he has ever been on the side of the American people) or his announcement to visit the Navy SEAL training camp in Coronado.
Constantly pointing out that this is “NOT” about his re-election – Yea right, is the Pope catholic?
But what Obama still refuses to admit, but what the Media more and more is recognizing is that Obama had absolutely nothing to do with it.
Just as I pointed out in my latest column (“WordPress” and “Amarillo Examiner”) Presidential Candidate Rick Santorum said it pretty accurate as well on Thursday May 5th 2011 first presidential debate: “if you look at what President Obama has done right in foreign policy, it was a continuation of the Bush policies,” Santorum said. The decision he made with Osama bin Laden – that was a tactical decision. It wasn’t a strategic decision. The strategic decision was made by President Bush, to go after him”.
Ann-Marie Murrell, columnist for many leading Online Magazine’s brought it right to the point when she said in her column on Patriot Update: “Thank you Mr. President (President Bush that is….)”.
Next to former President George W. Bush there is another Texan that had a major Role in the demise of Osama bin-Laden.
As the Washington Post reports, San Antonio, Texas born Vice Admiral William H. McRaven, was the commanding officer of the “Joint Special operations Command” for three years and the man that hunted Osama bin-Laden the past three years and lead the tactical groundwork for the successful execution of the world’s most wanted terrorist.
Vice Admiral W.H. McRaven, born in San Antonio, Texas graduated from Roosevelt High school and then from the University of Texas, Austin where he was a member of the “Naval Reserve Officers Training Corps”. He graduated in 1977 with a bachelor’s degree in journalism and holds a master’s degree from the “NavalPostgraduateSchool” where he helped and was the first graduate from the Special Operations/Low Intensity Conflict curriculum (from Wikipedia).
Vice Admiral McRaven is a highly awarded War Veteran who served in: Operation Desert Shield, Operation Desert Storm, Operation Enduring Freedom, Operation Iraqi Freedom and now Operation Geronimo that lead to the Osama bin-Laden closure.
He himself is a trained Navy SEAL, and in addition carries the Navy Parachutist badge (not worn), Presidential service Badge and the Joint Special Operations Command badge.
Among many other awarded medals Vice Admiral McRaven was awarded the Defense Superior Service medal (2), Legion of Merit Medal (2) and Bronze Star (2).
This man is a true Texas Hero and we Texan’s can be proud of him. So while POTUS travels through the country enjoying the success of others it was twoTexas heroes’s that actually and truly led the way to success.
So here is my message to all you Terrorists, criminals, drug and weapon smugglers out there:
DON’T MESS WITH TEXAS
We come and get ya
