I called it............... Obama is now saying it was HIS DOING that made this happen.............Gawd I hate him and the Main Stream Media for LYING they way they do.

And Obama's already got his press people out there claiming that he "authorized" that, even though it was on-scene Navy personnel who made the call to shoot totally independent of Obama.

They neglect to mention also that Obama took three days to give that "authorization" even though the Pentagon was pressing him on it constantly.

But at least he found the time to pick out a new dog while Capt. Phillips sweated and the world watched.
