Combat Heroes do not seek credit!
It is Combat Heroes who put their lives on the line!
True Combat Heroes do not politicize their acts of valor!
The current resident of the White House continue to employ mass TV advertisements, continues to do multiple TV specials/interviews, and initiated a live national broadcast from the “safety’ of the largest secure combat base in Afghanistan, about what “I”. “Me”, “HE” did. While those personnel in the Special Operations community of the military know, President Bush initiated a well-coordinated program 10 years ago, to execute a worldwide intelligence gathering mission, to approve a skillful enhanced interrogation operation to patiently & persistently extract information from captured terrorists in the Brig at the US Naval Base in Guantanamo Cuba, and it took many years of training and dangerous combat operations for members of SEAL Team SIX to become fully prepared for the operation he continues to brag about. According to senior Flag Officers in the Pentagon, it was the skillful planning by SEAL Admiral William McRaven, Commander of the Joint Operations Command (JSOC), and many weeks of painstaking precision rehearsals by SEAL Team SIX, that led Admiral McRaven “to decide” to execute the mission. That operation had to be approved by the person who keeps spiking the football. No other US President in 235 years has ever tried to shamelessly take a substantial amount of credit for what the military does in very dangerous and risky Special Operations in Combat. “He”, “I”, Me” continues to spike the football in the end zone when he wasn’t even on the field, yet continues, tongue in cheek, relentless decreases the Defense Budget, is increasing the charge to military personnel & Veterans over the next 2 years for their health care by 300%, and is marginalizing the finest US Military establishment in history by instilling touchy feely social programs, which are negatively affecting unit cohesion, military discipline, and combat effectiveness.
