Leadership: Obama Administration Drafted Memo to Blame Military if OBL Mission Failed

Former Attorney General Michael Mukasey told Sean Hannity tonight 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.

And, of course, this surprises no one who is familiar with Obama’s leadership style.

Mukasey also contrasted Obama’s leadership style tonight to Lincoln and Eisenhower as he did in his WSJ Opinion piece earlier in the week.

Lincoln took responsibility in August 1862 for failures that had been attributed to General George McClellan—eventually sacked for incompetence—and Secretary of War Edwin Stanton. Lincoln told a crowd that McClellan was not at fault for seeking more than Stanton could give, and “I stand here, as justice requires me to do, to take upon myself what has been charged upon the Secretary of War.”

Dwight Eisenhower is famous for having penned a statement to be issued in anticipation of the failure of the Normandy invasion that reads in relevant part: “My decision to attack at this time and place was based upon the best information available. The troops, the air and the Navy did all that bravery and devotion to duty could do. If any blame attaches to the attempt it is mine alone.”

A week later, when the success of the invasion was apparent, Eisenhower saluted the Allied Expeditionary Forces: “One week ago this morning there was established through your coordinated efforts our first foothold in northwestern Europe. High as was my preinvasion confidence in your courage, skill and effectiveness . . . your accomplishments . . . have exceeded my brightest hopes.

Eisenhower did mention himself at the end: “I truly congratulate you upon a brilliantly successful beginning. . . . Liberty loving people everywhere would today like to join me in saying to you, ‘I am proud of you.'”

    [Obama believes exactly that. So pure is his arrogance, so exalted his narcissism, that he will do nothing to defend himself out of the conviction that no such thing is required of him. That he, among all human beings alive in the second decade of the third millennium, does not need to respond under any circumstance. This is the difference between Obama and previous administrations — Richard M. Nixon and Ronald Reagan worked like stevedores to overcome Watergate and Iran Contra, Nixon with no success while Reagan at last put it behind him. But Obama, exactly like his appointees, doesn’t think he has to make any defense at all. He truly believes that he can’t be touched. (The other difference between these scandals and earlier ones is that hundreds have died as a result of this administration’s activities.)]

    He has such an ego. It is a real shame that I am speaking of a president in this way. But Obama has tried to take their benefits away. Obama has reduced the military and our defense system, Obama has hated the word terrorist, surge and President George W. Bush.

    He lacks the moral character that it takes to help our Military and respect our military and those who have left us and those who are living with the mental and physical complications of war. They are the Heroes and they deserve so much better than a person like Obama as commander and Chief.

    Crosses are banned on Military Bases, Secret Service is a joke and a real scandal, Fast and Furious is an embarrassment and now this. Disgracing our men and women in our military is close to treasonous. Then he makes his mysterious trip to thank the Seals, wow, now he doesn’t have guts, Obama just has no conscience.

    flashback to 8/11

    [Today, that retaliation may have come to pass, as a Taliban RPG killed at least 20 members of Team 6, in “the single deadliest incident for U.S. soldiers by far” in the Afghanistan war. The members apparently were not part of the group involved in the raid, we are told (why are we told this? Won’t it keep the jihadis hunting?), and there is no way to know whether this was an orchestrated ambush targeting Team 6. But it is an important reminder why it’s not just comedy relief to have cynical glory-seekers and complete buffoons at the highest levels of government.]

    he never did mention them did he??

    re IMPEACH HIM

    Easier said than done. Hussein believes he is untouchable and above the law to the point he even threatens the Supreme Court. In addition he may believe he is protected from impeachment by Russia, China, the Muslim world and/or combinations thereof via threats of war if action is taken against him, or actual war. He is valuable to other countries for the wealth of secrets, technology and money they receive from him. It may be necessary for the SC and Congress to order his removal from the WH by the U.S. military a la Zelaya in Honduras. Apparently the U.S. military is at odds with the Hussein regime and this is preventing policies from being put in place, e.g.

    ‘Is the US military and the Bankster controlled federal government on a collision course? When one begins to connect the dots, with each dot representing a critical intersect point between the two entities, it strongly appears that an irrevocable bifurcation between the two is underway and the point of no return may have already been reached. Why else would we be witnessing the training of Russian troops to carry out policing activities in and around the Colorado Springs area later this month?

    A report from the Daily Caller noted that the Labor Department has withdrawn a highly controversial Obama administration order which would’ve outlawed any form of child labor on family farms. This regulation would have dealt a death blow to the economic viability of America’s small farmers. As a result, food prices would have astronomically skyrocketed because all food production would have subsequently emanated from the large corporate owned farms. As an aside, the large corporate owned farms were exempt from this Labor Department restriction and of course, illegal migrant labor would be permitted on the corporate farms as well. To many, the defeat of this illegal and unconstitutional child labor regulation marked a victory for the average American. However, there may be a more ominous message behind the rescinding of this policy as it becoming clear that the Obama administration is seeking to conceal the rift between its bankster benefactors and the US military as it is becoming clear that Obama suddenly backed away from a policy that the military refused to support.

    Curiously, the enforcement mechanism for this insane policy would’ve fallen to Homeland Security and amazingly, to the military. This means that forces of our military would have faced off against American farmers. There can be no doubt that many farmers would have defended to the death their historical right to property and parenting rights. The real reason for the withdrawal of the child farm labor policy has to do with the fact that the US military was not willing to murder American farmers on behalf of the Wall Street bankers and their large agricultural partners. The Obama administration is concealing this serious rift from the American people!

    Further evidence of this growing conflict comes from Afghanistan as we should not forget that when Defense Secretary, Leon Panetta, visited Afghanistan in March, there was an attempt on his life. Following the incident, all American soldiers in Panetta’s presence were unilaterally disarmed, thus providing another example of distrust between the two institutions.

    It is also no secret that the Russians have threatened our government with war if America attacks its two aforementioned allies. This clearly casts Russia into the role of being a military enemy of the US. Why then, would the federal government mandate that enemy Russian paratroopers be trained at Fort Carson Army base in Colorado Springs, Colorado, in late May and early June of this year? Yet, this is an undeniable fact as Defense Department spokesperson, Commander W. L. Snyder, told the New American, that Russian troops would be training in southern Colorado for three weeks in which they would be allowed to provide security at local baseball games and to participate in roadside checkpoints as well as to conduct war game military raids on local terrorist base camps. The unmistakable conclusion is that our enemies are being trained to interact with the American public and to participate in policing activities on American soil.

    Shouldn’t the presence of Russian troops on American soil be considered an act of war? Why then would Russian troops be given access to one of our most important and secure military bases in the country? Why then are Russian troops being allowed to view how our military will meet a crisis not to mention the fact that we are giving the Russian military access to the inner workings of a key military installation while training on American soil for the first time?’…

    RED DAWN AND THE CHICAGO SPRING

    There is something seriously wrong going on needless to say. What exactly did Hussein promise Russia when he can be more flexible?

    #48 “Where is the memo? That document would become a national treasure after all this ball-spiking Obummer has been doing.”

    Don’t know the answer but you can take it to the bank that it exists. Mukasey called it a CYA and said it was a ‘very lawyered’ document. The way he said it and repeated it at least once? more alerted me. Not a lawyer, just a dummy here, but the man was making a point.

    #61 “You can blame Obama for a lot of things but he has actually done a pretty good job prosecuting the war on terror.”

    You know, this is rather like I said about Jimmy Carter for a long time. I would say he was the worst president ever but probably a very good man. I know about my mistake now. Carter is an extremely bad man and I know the difference now.

    I went along with what you wrote ……………..until………………I watched him screw up Iraq on purpose. He said he wanted to close Gitmo. This gutless wonder, instead, tried to bring the terrorists into our prison systems. This preacher with the pointing finger, preaches about torture but he kills instead. No, we had 31 seals killed after the raid.

    No. This is another very bad man. Problem is, he is worst than our previous worst. He is very deliberate with his destruction from the Gulf oil to the coal mines, to controling our food, energy and medicine.

    re Obama is giving our defenses away or reducing them

    And the Russians and Chinese are taking advantage and forming a war alliance, with each other.

    ‘China and Russia announced last week the conclusion of a six-day joint naval exercise. The exercises took place in the Yellow Sea off of China’s east coast and included a live-fire stage. It focused on joint maritime air defense and the defense of marine traffic arteries, with exercises involving joint escorts, marine search and rescue operations, anti-submarine tactics and anti-hijacking tactics. China and Russia have conducted several joint military exercises since 2005 within the framework of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO). Last week’s exercise was the largest joint navy drill between China and Russia in recent years.

    A total of 16 ships and two submarines from the Chinese navy took part in the exercises, including 5 missile destroyers, 5 missile frigates, 4 missile boats, and 1 support vessel and 1 hospital ship. 13 aircraft and 5 shipboard helicopters also participated, along with 7 Russian ships. The two navies deployed aircraft and special force units to conduct joint maritime anti-terror task in the exercise. More than 4,000 Chinese servicemen participated in the drill.

    China’s joint exercises are not limited to engagements with Russia. In 2011, China participated in 8 joint military exercises and training sessions with foreign forces. These included the China-Pakistan anti-terrorist training, the China-Indonesia special forces training, and the China-Belarus parachute troop training. Many more have been held within the 11th of China’s 5-year plans. China says that these exercises play a positive role in promoting the overall capacity of its military while achieving the political and diplomatic goals of the state. In January 2011, China and the U.S. agreed to look into the possibility of holding joint exercises ranging from maritime search and rescue to humanitarian assistance and disaster relief, counter-piracy, counterterrorism, and more. Both parties hoped such actions would improve certain key capabilities on both sides, lead to safer practices for our sea and air forces, and, over time, cultivate trust and lead to more opportunities for defense cooperation. ‘

    Sino-Russian military drills set the stage for expanded military cooperation, coincide with machinery export growth consultations

    It is a possibility there will be thousands of Chinese soldiers training in the U.S. just like the Russians. Hussein is giving away this nation in whole. Are we ready to live under foreign occupation?

    From #25 S.Wolf’s link:

    House Oversight and Government Reform Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) said Tuesday that “the American people should be very afraid” after hearing President Barack Obama’s accidentally recorded remarks to Russian President Dmitry Medvedev on Monday that after the election he would have more “flexibility” in dealing with the Russians.

    “I judge that in fact he’s going to sell out our national defense after the election,” said Issa.

    Six or seven years ago, a young Brit posted a comment on Blackfive announcing that he was considering a career in “the forces.” He asked us for advice. Since I attended three military schools – Randolph-Macon, Culver and Annapolis – and served two decades and a USAF officer, I listed ten points. The tenth was leadership. Perhaps I should have posted a copy on Obama’s page.

    10. Leadership is giving your subordinates everything they need to accomplish the mission – support, resources, persuasion, information, direction, reward, punishment, encouragement and loyalty. Their failures are your responsibility.

    On October 24th, 1983, President Reagan did not hesitate to accept responsibility for the VBIED that blew up the U.S. Marine barracks located at Beirut International Airport; in where 241 U.S. Marines/Sailors were killed and more than 100 others wounded. There was no memo to blame the military then. Just a speech in were the Commander in Chief accepted responsibility for putting Marines in a peace keeping posture with a ROE to die for: that didn’t allow them to lock and load until fired upon and consolidated the Marines in one building instead of keeping them spread out in a tactical defense. Lets remember too that this war against terrorism didn’t start in 2001, it started long before even Beirut. 9/11 is what it took for us to finally do something about it. Now look at us. We are worried to offend our enemies when we try them for murder by the way we dress? The way we dress is part of what we are fighting for. freedom of expression. If they don’t like it, screw em! There are a lot of Soldiers and Marines rolling in their graves these days. America snap out of it! We should never be ashamed of our freedom or for the fact we defend it. Stand in our way? Get a smack down. Cowards blame others for their failure. Cowards kiss their enemies asses in an effort to appease. This is not about Muslims vs Americans or Americans vs Muslims, this about anyone who takes up arms against us beware. Leadership means accepting full responsibility. If you are blaming others for your failures, you ain’t leading! enough said. If you are offended by this then your tank is low on resolve and patriotism. Get Some!

    Show the memo!
    Obama took the bold step to go in and not just bomb the place to oblivion. He did what Clinton or Bush did not do. Disect it to fit your little feeble brains just looking for anything to demean what has been accomplished.
    Show the Memo!
