No Easy Day

This was just a hit. There was no resistance, and no real effort to capture Bin Laden alive. I know the order didn't come down that way, simply because there is no way to put that into an order. 

But you know what? In this one particular case, I don't even care. George Bush declared Bin Laden "Wanted Dead or Alive," but it took Barack Obama to give the order to find him, and then another order that night to execute the mission. He was America's most-wanted criminal ever. Those Seals ended a decade-long nightmare. Bin Laden ordered the deaths of thousands of innocent civilians around the world for more than 20 years. This is the one where even I have to say, "He got what he had coming."

Navy Seals are "Ready to Lead, Ready to Follow, Never Quit," and the best part of an otherwise bloated Navy.

Finest kind. Damned Few. Hooah!
