Fire the Person in Charge of Press Releases Already

The Slippery Story of the bin Laden Kill


The White House Tuesday blamed "the fog of war" for conflicting statements in its recounting of the events surrounding the Abbottabad raid that killed Osama bin Laden, but the history of misstatements from U.S. government officials about various combat operations raises questions about whether briefers also were subjecting us to a counterterrorism strategy and not just completely confused in their initial statements.

With the crew that is currently inhabiting the White House, Gun Shy believes that it is more likely the fog of all the partying they did in the sixties, combined with the lack of experience when it comes to military operations, as well as having zero understanding of the protocol needed to present a well researched report.
