Now they need to send in an op with the mission to kill
al Baghdadi . Grease his ass .
Horse Hockey. Obama just trying to cover his butt.
In fact it was so secret, the guys on the mission didn't even know about it.
That’s what I was thinkin.
Idiot, McCain had their address in his Rolodex.
After the Bergdahl swap this will become more common.
This could be a ploy to get ISR on a movement of prisoners. Or it could be CYA. It is sad when I trust Russia and Al Jazerra more than I do our presentdent.
Another “If you like your plan you can keep your plan” release from the White Hut.
I don’t buy it. We might have had guys on the ground in Syria but they were there to arm “moderate” terrorists against Assad.
The behavior of this administration leaves me praying that the rumor of American soldiers in ISIS hands is false because we won’t even know about it till they’re dead.
What good does this statement do now, with our reporter having lost his head? Obama get’s no ‘star on the forehead’ for effort. Obama gets no credit for effort because of all he does to explicitly place us in danger, such as releasing the Guantanamo Five to return to their Jihad. Or allowing thousands of illegals to waltz into our shores, penalty-free. Thanks, Obama!
They forgot the flashlights, could not find nobody.
Just like Jimmah C.
I’m guessing the joint chiefs aren’t enjoying getting run over by the bus they were just thrown under.
The internal polls must be really ugly on this one.
Obama blaming someone else. Typical narcissist.
they sent in Horseface, who served in Vietnam, and he took along Martin Sheen and together they couldn’t get the hostages released..
