Response to Grassy Knoll (Original post)

15. Right-wing pundits who were howling over Obama's similar decision:

(crickets) (crickets)...then back to Obama-bashing.

if you want to know how the "Obama waited 16 hours" story spread, the Daily Mail (won't link...you can do the search yourself) in the UK made a big FUSSY STORY out of this passage from the New York Times' indepth "Behind the Hunt for Bin Laden" story:

Last Thursday, the day after the president released his long-form birth certificate — such “silliness,” he told reporters, was distracting the country from more important things — Mr. Obama met again with his top national security officials.

Mr. Panetta told the group that the C.I.A. had “red-teamed” the case — shared their intelligence with other analysts who weren’t involved to see if they agreed that Bin Laden was probably in Abbottabad. They did. It was time to decide.

Around the table, the group went over and over the negative scenarios. There were long periods of silence, one aide said. And then, finally, Mr. Obama spoke: “I’m not going to tell you what my decision is now — I’m going to go back and think about it some more.” But he added, “I’m going to make a decision soon.”


I peeked at "The Savage Nation" on Monday, and guest host Jeff Kuhner was HOWLING and HYSTERICAL. (I could only stomach only a minute; his whole commentary is on youtube here.)
