As the operation to remove UBL from this mortal coil becomes more public, the failure of our Punter In Chief will become better known.
We all are aware of the consistency of the Democrat politician; deny and demagogue. Just kick the can down the road and wait until someone else comes along and attempts a fix. Then, deny there is a problem, and call the good Samaritan names.
What is clear to me is that the Punter In Chief, never having had the responsibility for ever having to accomplish anything, whatsoever, was not the best guy to have in charge over the past week-end. That UBL is dead is done. How to handle it?
Seems no one thought that through.

Whether or not we violated UBL's Constitutional Rights, or, his human rights. Whether or not he was protected by the Geneva Accords. And the White House's response will be to kick it down the road. Punting the ball. (BTW--thanks to Rog for the above pic. I don't remember where the others came from.)
