Somebody lied to me. Since May 2011, the liberals and leftist media have been telling me that President Barack Obama got Osama bin Laden. I have eagerly sought the answer to exactly what Obama did to "get" bin Laden. I knew the search for bin Laden had begun shortly after 9/11 under President George W. Bush.
What I didn't know was what Obama changed in that effort upon becoming president. So I was happy to attend the new movie, "Zero Dark Thirty," expecting to see how Obama "got" bin Laden. Imagine my disappointment when the movie revealed no executive order, no policy change, no directive from Obama on how the intelligence community was to change in order to get bin Laden.
Believe it or not he wasn't even in the helicopter on that fateful night in May 2011. Apparently, he did nothing to "get" bin Laden except to be the lucky occupant of the White House when told that bin Laden had been located.
As any president with the IQ of a tree stump would do in that situation, he told the Navy SEALs to go get him.
How disappointed I am to find out it was not the great Obama who did it.
