I can only give O credit for doing what any post-9/11 CIC was obligated to do. If it ever came out that he could have taken OBL out, yet ignored the opportunity, his legacy would be severely damaged. He HAD to give that order and I'm glad he did the right thing.
One thing to remember about BHO is his main loyalty is always to himself. He will play both ends against the middle in any situation in order to come out the hero. That is simply the character of the man.
This the reason I will be watching very closely how Obama attempts to parlay this victory into something much bigger. I'm especially praying Bibi Netenyahu doesn't see the assassination of OBL as proof we're on Israel's side after all. He could be falling into a dangerous trap if he lets his guard down on Obama now.
