'No Easy Day,' Bin Laden Raid Book: Osama Was Unarmed

More obfuscation and distraction from you.  

I'm Ernie Pyle.  Not good enough for you?  Ok, I'm General Malcolm Granger.  

Our military service in a civilian-controlled military is of no consequence.  Not in general or in relation to this discussion.  It doesn't matter because when you join up, it's not "are you willing to fight for your country?", but "are you willing to die for country?" Once that deal has been cut,  your longevity is whatever strategically suits Command's objectives.  If it suits the CIC to put you in dangerous circumstances for some greater good, the CIC will do it.  And that's why we have (or used to) transparency.  Or as the GOP's favorite president said, "Trust but verify".  

I said "members of Congress who have been designated to oversee military operations".  Not the entire Congress, although the information we're talking about could and should be known to all members and citizens.  

If you can't explain how divulging the true circumstances of how Bin Laden died would be dangerous, I don't think you're an honest character, worthy of attention.
