“Mission Accomplished” is what should have been the banner on the aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson which was the final resting place of Osama Bin Laden.
With the 1-year anniversary of Osama Bin Laden’s death having just passed, it is important for me to say that Barack Obama got him. We are now knee deep into a presidential election, and candidate President Barack Obama most definitely must list the administration’s accomplishments of his first term. Be for real!
After 8 years of the George W. Bush adminitration trying to get him, they did not. Obama got him. He found him; he gave the order; he buried him. Yes, of course, it was the work of many good, brave people and plenty of it overlapped from the Bush administration. However, the ultimate decisions made by Obama in this victory led to the type of success that the mission was. Bush would no doubt have “laser tagged” Osama and the whole compound with U.S. bombers if he had found him, like he did Musab al-Zarqawi in 2006.
On June 7, 2006, Musab Al-Zarqawi took the secrets and locations of Al Qaeda’s WMD storage caches in Iraq to the grave with him because the U.S. bombs had incinerated Zarqawi, obliterating the building and everything in it. The U.S. sifted through the rubble of Zarqawi’s safe house, but the building was obliterated. All of his computers and documents had gone up with him. Noted from: Chuck Pfarrer. Seal Target Geronimo.

Bush would have beaded Osama’s location with lasers, sending in U.S. bombers to flatten Osama’s compound, killing everyone in it and losing all of the evidence and files. Barack Obama sent in Seal Team Six, beaded Bin Laden with lasers from 2 rifles and surgically eliminated target #1. Plus, Seal Team Six left with a treasure trove of evidence. I say, “Job well done!”
