As President Obama continues shamelessly hog the credit for the killing of Osama bin Laden, the man who did the real dirty work tells the true tale.
Jose A. Rodriguez Jr. is a 31-year veteran of the CIA and the author of �Hard Measures: How Aggressive CIA Actions After 9/11 Saved American Lives.�
As we mark the anniversary of Osama bin Laden�s death, President Obama deserves credit for making the right choice on taking out Public Enemy No. 1.
But his administration never would have had the opportunity to do the right thing had it not been for some extraordinary work during the George W. Bush administration. Much of that work has been denigrated by Obama as unproductive and contrary to American principles.
He is wrong on both counts.
Shortly after bin Laden met his maker last spring, courtesy of U.S. Special Forces and intelligence, the administration proudly announced that when Obama took office, getting bin Laden was made a top priority. Many of us who served in senior counterterrorism positions in the Bush administration were left muttering: �Gee, why didn�t we think of that?�
Now look at how Liberals are trying to spin Jose Rodriguez
