All the glory, none of the blame.
Why would the administration have to draft a legal memo, when the media clearly would have covered him and blamed the military if the raid was unsuccessful?
Is a memo really capable of convincing people you have a spine?
Via Fox News (Video below):
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.”
