Some conspiracy theorist are saying it was Panetta that issued the order to kill bin laden and Obama was hesitating over the mission. What a load of bull. Watch Obama plan more assassination missions around the world, starting with Quaddafi and ending with Kim Jong Il. It's so much cheaper to take out a single problematic motherfucker than to spend a trillion dollars irradiating a civilization to the point of unconditional submission. Obama is a smart man. Don't underestimate him. Yeah yeah yeah... it's illegal for the U.S. to assassinate a foreign head of state... tell that to Saddam, and Quaddafi soon enough. The laws of man are fallible anyway. It was once the law of the land to own a slave. Then the civil war and the military might of the North proved otherwise.
