We have the answer

Do you remember the U.S. Navy Seal raid that killed Osama Bin Laden? The videos of President Obama and his top advisers in the president’s strategy room, and the aftermath of public praise for the president’s courage by some in the media, and by Vice President Joe Biden, specifically?

After saying that President Obama was courageous for ordering the raid, Vice President Biden said, can you imagine the political damage to the president if any of the Navy Seals had been “killed or captured?” The vice president didn’t bother to share the courage with the Navy Seals who might have been “killed or captured.”

With diplomats and their protectors killed in Benghazi, Libya, the IRS unconstitutionally targeting political enemies of the president and the president’s Justice Department snooping on the media — we now have the answer to Vice President Biden’s “can you imagine” question.

I imagine that the president would simply say, “I don’t know who was responsible for those ‘killed or captured’ Navy Seals, but I will find out, so it never happens again.” Of course, redacting the strategy room videos would need a lot of black ink.
