Hey....I give the tyrant props for at least trying.
Al..La...Jimmy The Peanut boy, he failed though. One must wonder what type of "constraints" if any, were placed on the special forces troops in regards to rules of engagement while in Syria.
The hostages weren't in that location, or am I missing something.
Trying only seems to count when you're a Dem politician and in horseshoes.
I'm mystified why we keep releasing these special ops.
It's not exactly a secret that SF are likely to try to ruin your day if you are up to hijinks like this. That's why they don't keep the hostages in the designated dungeon downtown.
I understand the concern, but in this case it wasn't exactly a secret to the enemy, we killed a bunch of them which they certainly realized...and as far as I have seen none of the real details have been made public.
I do think there is some value in Americans knowing that we tried to rescue one of our own and that he wasn't forgotten, even if there was likely a political calculation behind the release.
Sent troops to syria to rescue hostages, not knowing where they were.
Did not send troops to Benghazi, where he knew where those killed were located.
Makes sense ,huh?
It's being linked by the Muslim Brotherhood who've infiltrated the administration.

This is what President Obama did after his speech on #ISIS http://cnn.it/1ogTu0C
My first thought upon hearing of the failed rescue mission was , was this the catylyst for the beheading of Foley?
Admin claiming that press was going to release so they put it out.
If Obama gets credit for this failure, do you also give him credit for the success in getting Osama bin Laden?
Possible if you ignore timing.
The raid was weeks before the beheading
It appeared the hostages were there a few days before. Three helicopters along with fighter plane escorts. so it was no
secret to the terrorists.
And if you ignore what they had Foley read and the ISIS person said.
In my opinion we over estimate the capabilities of SOF in a non-permissive environment.
Even a blind squirrel finds a nut sometimes.
Just to add to that.
The Tyrant should have not taken credit so publicly and so arrogantly on Bin Laden.....nor should have the tyrant fool publicized the failure to get the hostages in Syria.
He's such a clown. A caricature of some sort of capable manager.
Poor guy just does not have a clue.
Can you elaborate on this? The hostages weren't in the location they thought, I don't see how restrictions on engagement would impact that.
