The Swift Boating Of Obama

is more like an empty barge.  Peter Bergen, who is perhaps one of the more prominent analyst of worldwide terrorism and especially the hunt for Osama bin Laden, takes to task the recent efforts by alleged former military men (especially former SEALs) who charge that President Obama has used the killing of bin Laden for political purposes.  The main claim is that Obama is taking credit for something that he had little to do with: the hunt for and subsequent killing of bin Laden in Abbottabad, Pakistan in 2010.

Bergen goes point to point in disproving the attempt to discredit Obama’s involvement in this action. 

Although his detailed explanation is not going to change zealots who intensely hate the president, hopefully rational people will see that the swift boat attack on President Obama is full of holes.
