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.'”

  1. What a bunch of ass-****s!

  2. What a pansy.

  3. Is Obama just a coward?

  4. Obumba would sacrifice all the animals in the Congo to protect his sorry self image.

  5. ++

    well it’s only fair, i mean, he didn’t actually give the actual order.. /s/


  6. Our president is a contemptible SOB. It staggers the imagination just how ill-chosen our current president is.

  7. Sending this vid far and wide. This deserves attention. Thanks for shining a light on it here.

  8. #1, #2

    Apparantly we are allowed to say ass-holes and pussies with this blog-commenting engine!

  9. Not that I would do that.

  10. Taqiy. You are one funny fella.

    bg. I think you deserve a h/t on this. You did link to this story on the Carlson/Greene thread.

    Perhaps Zero has met his nemisis.

  11. There is absolutely ZERO accountability with this administration. Amazing how they continue their existence.

  12. #10:

    #2 wrote pansy.


    You are the only one to have used both. :)

  13. Meant to watch Sean tonight. He mentioned today he was going to have some SEALs on as well. I guess I can catch it on the web.

    What? I’m some sort of clown?



  15. Why should this be any different? Sir Golfsalot blames everything and everybody about his administration’s failures. Buck never stops with him.

    If none of his propaganda or campaign ideas hold soon, Hussein will get even more desperate than he is now. Which means this SOB will do anything to stay in power…..

    Paging the Justice Brothers, the purple people beaters, ACORN, NOI……..showtime

    ht Sasja :-)

    [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.)]

    more @ link..


  17. Chim: I was just testing:

    Regarding a “moby”-ish comment I noticed on an earlier thread, in which both words were used.

    Again, I don’t (and you can google my nic) normally post profanities. Was just making a point.

    Don’t worry, in the Progressive Near Future, any blog-comment containing a sentence with the words “black” and “watermelon” will be flagged and cataloged by the Utah-based (hello, Mitt!) National Citizen Spy Centter as “racist.”

    But putting the words c&&t, and Sarah Palin together will be Ay-Okay!
