Don?t out our special ops

I am stunned at the president outing of the Bin Laden SEAL operation within one hour of success. These special ops guys live in the dark ? and there is good reason for that. They, and their families, are now vulnerable to the Islamic Jihadists who are willing to die for a lost cause. POTUS took credit for obvious political reasons. Had it gone wrong, he would have had plausible deniability, and the military would have taken the hit. This is unconscionable! To his credit, he could have stopped the operation and did not. The military could have targeted OBL with a laser weapon and taken him out. The obvious advantage of a live raid is the plethora of intelligence information recovered. Hot! Press on with pride, guys!
