In 2006, Sen. Barack Obama is dressed in traditional garb by Sheikh Mahmed Hassan, left, during a visit to Kenya.

The Man Who Personally Shot OBL

In the aftermath of killing America’s single most prominent enemy, a number of writers intelligently reflect on the contrast between an act of absolute moral clarity and the total absence of such moral clarity in the man taking all the credit for it.

Robin of Berkeley opines on “The Mysterious Mr. O” at American Thinker.

Ben Shapiro grapples with “The Moral Confusion of BO” at Townhall.com.

Not suffering from the lack of moral clarity besetting our President and his followers, Ann Coulter launches her own wickedly hilarious and unambiguous Special Forces assault on Democratic Party foreign policy at Human Events.

IowaHawk is positively giddy over the Left’s new patriotism and unilateral support of all that it considered criminal only minutes before Obama found his Inner Rambo.

Michael Barone at Washington Examiner: “To get bin Laden, Obama relied upon polices he decried.” Are waterboarding, gathering intelligence, the CIA, Guantanamo, battlefield justice/military tribunals over US courts all still no-nos when Obama profits by them?

At American Thinker, C. Edmund Wright correctly terms Bin Laden’s killing  “A Victory for the Adults” which pointedly does not include Barack Obama.

Roger Simon of Pajamas Media speaks of President Boring: “But what is it about Obama that makes him so boring? I submit it is something quite simple — he has nothing to say. He is a boring person, the quintessential ‘hollow man’ in the T.S. Eliot sense. He is kind of a socialist, kind of a liberal, kind of a multi-culturalist, kind of an environmentalist, kind of globalist, kind of a budget cutter — but none of them with any real commitment. Basically, he’s a vague and uncommitted person pretending to be otherwise. He is the man that voted ‘present,’ now in the presidency. The fact that he never specified the targets of ‘hope’ and ‘change’ during his election was far from a campaign ploy and more typical than we ever dreamed. There never was a there there. And now, I strongly suspect, there never will be.”
