No mention of the fact that the Bin Laden group is the largest construction contractor for US forces in Saudi Arabia.

Nice try, Trump. But Obama already got the one that mattered.

It was unclear why the White House decided to publicize information about Hamza's death months after he was killed.

Because Trump needs to crow about something. The man-child can't keep his mouth shut.

How is that relevant to your boy Donny claiming bin Laden's son was killed.

If you have an issue with the DoD doing business with the Bin Laden Grouo, you should criticize Donny for not affecting change.

Rob O’Neill got OBL and by the way, it’s good our guys took him out because anyone of his sons would have been worse if they couldn’t be stopped, so I guess this is his second or third son that was killed. The man has 17 children, so it’s hard to keep up. So getting these guys and turning off their lights, it all matters in the long run.

Rob O’Neill got OBL and by the way

Who ordered Rob O' Neill to get UBL?

Rob O’Neill got OBL

So, the next time you say Donny killed Russians in Syria, what you mean is the people who pulled the triggers/pushed the buttons killed Russians, not Donny.

But Trump ordered it, meaning: Trump didn’t kill anyone, but him ordering shows, he’s not a Russian spy, stooge or whatever euphemisms liberals use to describe the President.

Trump didn't order anything - the Russians in Syria were killed because they violated the Rules of Engagement - they intruded into US controlled territory, failed to retreat when warned, and were engaged.

When Donnie found out, he likely fired the General in charge and got on his knees to beg forgiveness from his Master Vlad....

And why the dodge on the question above? Donnie get's no credit for Jr, right?

Most people learn not to answer questions with questions when they are in primary school. It's simply bad form in critical discourse.

Obama ordered UBL killed.

You were there now? Huh.....

Thank you, Trump.

His master? 2011...flexibility, I mean.....

And why the dodge on the question above? Donnie get's no credit for Jr, right?

I give the soldier credit who ended his life.

Uh-huh, yea..so who pulled the trigger?

Obama ordered UBL killed.

The raid and death of Bin Laden goes to President Obama even if he wasn't the one who pulled the trigger. The Commander-in-Chief is at the top of the food chain.

The raid and death of Bin Laden's son, Hamza bin Laden, goes to President Trump who can at least feel in part almost equal to Obama. The operation happened months ago but Trump sat on the intel.

Last week there was also massive bombing of the ISISin Iraq.

The boots on the ground and guys in the sky do the dirty work but the presidents pick up the credits.

Trump had nothing to do with it. And Putin says that every night before he goes to sleep...

Dodge #2 - Donnie gets no credit, just like Obama, right?

Two of the biggest supporters of terrorism are Saudi and Iran. Afghans have only attacked American targets inside their country and only since it was invaded.

You were not there so you have to accept what was said. Could be Bin Laden killed himself and since his body was dumped in the ocean we'll never really know.

Sigh...who pulled the trigger?

We have already established that O'Neill pulled the trigger, so asking this question is engaging in the conversation in bad faith.

Who ordered O'Neill to kill UBL?

Thank you, Trump

Sigh . . . Who pulled the trigger?

I give the soldier credit who ended his life.

This is not how a yes/no question is answered.

When Trump and Putin had their secret meeting we don't know what was said or disgusted because there were no recordings. That should be illegal and Trump charged with failure of his duty. We don't know what they agreed.

No, but we all know O’Neill took the shot. Go to the WTC memorial, his uniform is there, the one he wore on that mission. That is what I accept and who I thank.

Too often soldiers claim something and then the story is revealed years later to be different. How do you know Bin Laden didn't commit suicide with O'Neill claiming the shot. The rest of his team didn't accept his version nor did they think he should have claimed credit for any team work.

So like you have said so many times,

O'Neill took the shot

So like you have said so many times,

You weren't there!

Real hero's never sing their own praise.

O'Neill's statements resulted in criticism by fellow Navy SEALs. Rear Admiral Brian Losey and Force Master Chief Michael Magaraci issued a public statement, stating that "a critical tenant [sic] of our ethos is 'I do not advertise the nature of my work, nor seek recognition for my actions.'

Different, it proves Trump hates the Russians. Dead Russians on his watch, Hey...

No. It proved that war zones are dangerous.

No, but we all know O’Neill took the shot. Go to the WTC memorial, his uniform is there, the one he wore on that mission. That is what I accept and who I thank.

Who was the command in chief that ordered O'Neill to shoot UBL? I'm 99.9% certain you will refusecto answer this question because that's how you deal with facts you don't like.

Why are Trump/WH only releasing the intel now?

Nice try, Trump

An important figure in al-Qaida, a son of Osama bin Laden is taken out, and all we get from Crazy is "Nice try, Trump?" Jeez...

Why are Trump/WH only releasing the intel now?

Protecting identities of our operatives comes to mind.

Exactly.

We don’t know what was discussed in 2011 either, but the mic picked it up, so as you said, a crime was not only committed, it’s on a hot mic.

That should be a crime

Perhaps.

The outcome of a military operation can be released without the naming of the operatives involved. This one happened end of July but intel released now. Was this a Bolton hit?

Our? Given so many Trump supporters have written repeatedly they distrust US intelligence agencies and instead believe what the Kremlin says, I have to assume 'our' refers to Russian operatives.

Your hyperpartisanship is hilarious.

Doesn't matter where Obama's suits are hanging, O'Neill neverveould gave had the opportunity to kill UBL if Obama hadn't ordered it.

Wevdont know what Donny was doing because none of our people besides Donny were in the room.

President Obama was totally involved in the Seal Team operation to locate and capture Bin Laden. Step-by-step commander with his generals.

President Trump was told about the killing of Bin Laden's son while he was out on the golf course. He even hold the message to shut up until he kicked the ball into the hole.

So they won't be adding Trump's suit?

9/11 families still waiting on justice for Khalid Sheikh Mohammed

The mastermind of 9/11 was Khalid

It’s been 18 years since 9/11, and for families and friends of the nearly 3,000 people killed that day, seeing the mastermind of the terror plot brought to justice has been a frustratingly elusive commodity.

Mohammed, or KSM as he is better known, was al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden’s operational planner and came up with the idea of using hijacked planes as missiles against America.

If Obama’s suit were at the WTC memorial and honored him for giving the order, I would say, you are right, but it’s not there, O’Neill’s is.

The U.S. government creates its own problems then dances around proudly when it momentarily solves one. Can't people see through this garbage? Our "hero" birthed the Hydra, periodically gets off its butt to lop off a head, then goes singing its own praises as another head grows in its place.

You are claiming here that O'Neill gave himself the order to kill UBL. Sweet logic. All just so you can avoid giving Obamadue credit. Wow, that's some deep, deep hyperpartisanship.

The same after that hot mic with Medvedev, we don’t know what happened afterwards.

Okay. You win. Never mind that Obama was accompanied by translators and note takers

.The only thing I care about is, he’s not living among us anhe

Thanks to Obama's actions as commander in chief.

nor Trump with this more minor op.

So about the trial of Mohammed, or KSM as he is better known, how long must the families wait?

O'Neill would have required the permission of the Commander-in-Chief Obama to kill Bin Laden rather than bringing him back for trial.

If Obama and Eric Holder didn’t try to take a victory lap and make it all about them by trying to bring his trial to NY, would have been done long time ago.

You have your Russian leaders mixed up. Sort that out first and then maybe, just maybe we can talk. Of course, you also have to agree to accept facts as facts.
