Obama Gets One Right

Credit where credit is due, folks.

Well I’d like to take this moment to congratulate the President for making a decision to put the safety of our nation first, instead of internationalism. Just as when he ordered the engagement of the Somali pirate kidnappers in April, Mr. Obama has again sent our special operations teams into action to protect our nation. Earlier today the best of the best, our US Navy SEALs, successfully concluded operation Celestial Balance; an operation tasked to capture/kill Saleh Ali Nabhan. Ten days ago President Obama signed off on the operation to take Nabhan, who was involved in many attacks on us and our allies since 1998 as well as residing on the FBI’s most wanted list since 2006.

  1. While kudos are in order for all involved in this, I think your “best of the best, our US Navy Seals” comment is a little over the top. The kills were made by AH 6 helicopters. To the best of my knowledge, no one except the Army’s 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment operates these aircraft. The mission staged off of a ship and apparently some Seals were used to recover the bodies, but I suspect that this was mainly a mission by the Army’s 160th Little Birds, That’s OK though, the Nightstalkers prefer to stay under the radar and are more concerned with doing the job than getting the headlines.

  2. Hi, Old Chopper Driver —

    The text is a quote from the originating site, so it’s *their* “best of the best” comment. I’m sure their biases are clear. 😉

    I’m betting you’re either a veteran or currently serving; if so, thank you for your service to our country.
