Josh, how much credit should Obama take for the killing of OBL? Ever since 9/11 many, many people worked on locating him so we could make him answer for that and other things. After a long while, we got a positive fix on him. After a few months with that information, Obama decided to "throw the switch" to take him out. We were successful, but just am much credit, if mot more, should go to the people who worked on it all this time. Obama's words in his OBL victory speeches seem to center on his actions as being the reason for success.
Every year, we put a National Christmas Tree up in Washington D.C. Many people are involved in setting this up. Traditionally, the President throws the switch to light it up. Should the President take the lion's share of the credit for that tree because he threw the switch to light it up at the end?
