The people screeching about "OPSEC" and "zipping it" fail to realize that our military loves a good story, especially one that can be used to justify increasing budgets, expanding little empires, and one that can help recruit more soldiers. This is what this is about; success has a whole lot of fathers, as the saying goes.
You are hearing these people because there is a presidential election happening right now. President Obama gave an order, and Osama bin Laden got shot in the head. This is something that Bush Administration failed to do, and the people who want to see Obama beaten in November are having a boo-hoo hissy fit because the Kenyan Born Pretender made it happen.
Sucks to be a Republican these days. Sucks really, really bad.
