Last night on the Daily Show the writer of the new book about the hunt for Bin Laden said that they actually didn't know for sure that Bin Laden was there because they could never get eyes on him. This was a riskier decision than Republicans want to make it out to be. Gates was against sending people in and one of Obama's top military advisers wanted to just drop a bomb on the compound.

Oski didn't get the memo. This thread had already turned into the normal facts-are-cruel beat down of the OP and misleading thread title. You are totally spiking the ball by posting further facts about Obama's decision itself.

Good thing you aren't running for reelection. Sheesh.

Bobert, we are well past that point.

THe liberal crowing has surpassed the spike and is now a virtual ICKEY SHUFFLE on bin Laden's grave.

That is what the whole debate is about. Nobody suggested that Bin Laden was spotted. They had an individual in the compound they strongly suspected was Bin Laden but could never confirm his face. They knew his wives were there and his close operatives were running in and out.

Dropping a bomb in the middle of a city in Pakistan is not the best of ideas. If that happened, we would have never known if Bin Laden was there, even if his body was intact.

So Obama made a smart, gutsy decision by overriding his Secretary of Defense.

He audibled out of the safe check-down on 3rd and long to take a shot at the end zone.

Then he pulled a sharpie out of his sock and autographed the football.

Add Robert Gates to the list of people that don't think it was a slam dunk decision to go in and actually advised against it because of the risks:
