Official: Obama Administration Drafted Memo to Blame Military if OBL Mission Failed
Former Attorney General Michael Mukasey told Sean Hannity on Friday that the Obama Administration drafted a memo to protect the president from blame if the mission to kill or capture Osama Bin Laden would have failed. That way Obama could blame the general instead of taking the blame himself. Mukasey wrote about it this week in The Wall Street Journal.
“That was a highly lawyered memo (designed to protect the president politically)… I think there’s going to be more that’s going to be tumbling out about that escapade but so far that memo is enough.“
Look, I'm not sure how much you know about politics but the overriding concept is "CYA". Does this angry ex AG actually have the memo?
It wouldn't surprise me if there were several different "form" versions of these letters where you insert a name and a calamity. It reminds me of those reports where it's "discovered" that the US has "invasion" plans for every single country on earth and then people act all butthurt.
Can't actually dispute the fact that OBL died under this guys watch anymore so lets attack a supposed contingency plan and evoke Lincoln?
Successful invasion press release......YOU guys did it. YOU guys are super awesome. The only "I" is followed by "am immensely proud of you." (Paraphrasing)
In the event of an invasion failure........It was MY fault. I stuffed up. I am the guy at fault. I am the guy to blame. (paraphrasing)
While I will not criticize the President to the Nth degree like FoxNews.....I do think the President got his "I's", "You's", and "My's" all mixed up and backwards......and I thought the intelligence services of the US were "Ours" not his?
Or did I somehow miss the memo about the Patriot Act?
