Grrrrr..... yes, sometimes you don't like the words that are chosen and this might just be a grammatical vent, but Obama seemed to emphasize "I", "ME", "MY" quite often in his announcement. Then referred to the troops that went in and got Osama as "small group".
At least give me some more adjectives for our troops. "A small, but mighty and very brave group"... "A team of elite American Soldiers".... "OUR AMERICAN Soldiers, whom we are very proud of and thankful to and for".... and to quote a dad of a 9/11 hero "people with unbelievable capability and courage"
C'mon, stop with the "I, ME, MY" and give us what it really is.... "American Soldiers". These terrorists didn't use cellphones, emails and text messages to plot, plan and carry out their deeds of terror. There was no "satellite monitoring" of his ham-radio messages - it was human intelligence on the ground, human ears who heard, human eyes that saw and somewhere a single soldier told his superior what he saw and heard. That's how this information came to light and became known. It began on the ground and ended on the ground. We have spent millions and millions (or more), we've lost life after life, we have young men and women who forever will be dead or disabled viscously because of this war on Bin Laden - can't we just remember that and give full credit where it is due - our soldiers.
I don't care if we credit 'this administration' with catching and killing him, but let's not get sooo caught up in giving so much credit to the White House that we forget our Soldiers in Tents. This is a victory of youth, a victory of our sons and daughters who joined up and volunteered to stand on the front lines. A victory of all ages who re-enlisted, the young, middle-aged and old military leaders. This victory belongs to the American people and to the victim's families of 9/11. It belongs to the memory and honor of those lost in the planes and the Towers. Let's not forget or diminish THE WHOLE contribution and the boots worn by each soldier or those shoes that sit silent in a widow's and widower's closet - walk in their shoes and credit THEIR GREAT commitment first.

He did What BUSH wouldnt.
Soldiers could have had him in Tora Bora,..Bush told them to RETREAT let someone else take care of it...and Osama slipped into Pakistan...
Obama made it his priority, as opposed to Bush saying he didnt care where Bin Laden was and he wasnt a priority...
