14. Bad outcome for US, Administration failure.

What message does this send to other potential "helpers" of the US? When the going gets tough...you are on your own.

We should have spirited him out of Pakistan as soon as we knew there was trouble, or at least told the asshole generals that we will turn the $$ spigot on super low if they don't let us get him out. As it is, he is hung out to dry.

I have no doubt that an Obama electoral victory in the fall will owe some thanks to the political milage gained from getting Bin Ladin. This is a pretty shitty way to thank someone who provided critical intelligence that allowed the administration to make the move. We need to get him out of there, turn this into a big win for the administration, and send the message "Side with Obama and the US and you will be protected."
