Hard to Explain

So Panetta canceled a top secret CIA program dreamed up by Cheney to send covert assassins into foreign countries (probably with or without their permission) to kill top al Qaeda leadership, and the Democrats get their panties in a wad because nobody told Nancy? And he did so without first consulting Obama?

Well then, what are we make of this promise...

Biden said "he lives in Pakistan" before correcting himself, meaning that in order to send him to hell we'd need to send people into Pakistan. With or without their permission, as Obama so often said. So, if not with the 10th Mountain Division, and not via covert CIA assassins, how then?

The official press spokesman was asked today for illumination:
So what is the degree of the President's knowledge about this situation? How has he been briefed? What has he learned about this himself in the last couple of days?

MR. GIBBS: He has been -- I'm not going to get into a lot of details, but obviously there have been --

Does he have a reaction that you can convey to us?

Now we find out that Cheney never said not to tell Congress.

This program, I believe, was to send Americans in to take out the bad guys (CIA, Special Ops, whatever).

Sounds like a good idea to me.

In fact I know that we did have Special Ops in Pakistan, maybe we still do.

Right Truth

Sounds like a Mossad program to me, which would be a bit controversial, but not surprising.

Dollars to doughnuts Pelosi would have been jumping up and down like a happy seal had they told her about it back then.
