CIA Director Leon Panetta is the Patriot of the Day

Posted by iusbvision on May 9, 2011

It appears that CIA Director Leon Panetta was the driving force behind getting the bin Laden raid done, as others in the administration, especially the Chicago side (Valerie Jarret etc) were opposed. Panetta is an old school Democrat who is not one of these new “Alinskyites”. Kudos to Director Panetta for pushing for a risky, yet difficult call that paid off.

[Editor’s Note: Based on what I know so far, if there was no Leon Panetta the raid likely would not have happened even though we knew where bin Laden was. This is based in part on newspaper reports and access to some people I have become familiar with. Panetta put together a team of people to push for the raid from allies he could get from in the intelligence complex and the administration. Of course the 80/20 rule applies. Getting a straight story out of this administration is not always easy.]
