If this does not speak to the character and integrity of each individual, then nothing does!
President George W. Bush’s Speech after the capture of Saddam Hussein
“The success of yesterday’s mission is a tribute to our men and women now serving in Iraq . The operation was based on the superb work of intelligence analysts who found the dictator’s’ footprints in a vast country. The operation was carried out with skill and precision by a brave fighting force. Our servicemen and women and our coalition allies have faced many dangers in the hunt for members of the fallen regime, and in their effort to bring hope and freedom to the Iraqi people. Their work continues, and so do the risks. Today, on behalf of the nation,
I thank the members of our Armed Forces and I congratulate them!“
President Barrack Hussein Obama’s Speech after the killing of Osama bin Laden
“And so shortly after taking office, I directed Leon Panetta, the Director of the CIA, to make the killing or capture of bin Laden the top priority of our war against al Qaeda, even as we continued our broader efforts to disrupt, dismantle, and defeat his network. Then, last August, I was briefed on a possible lead to bin Laden. It was far from certain, and it took many months to run this thread to ground. I met repeatedly with my national security team as we developed more information about the possibility that we had located bin Laden hiding within a compound deep inside of Pakistan. And finally, last week, I determined that we had enough intelligence to take action, and I authorized an operation to get Osama bin Laden and bring him to justice. Today, at my direction, the United States launched a targeted operation against that compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan.“
Obama did not once acknowledge our brave men and women who fight for our country.
(There is an awful lot of ‘I’ and ‘my’ in that second paragraph…hmmm)
Integrity is not something that we get with a job position. Integrity is something within us, it comes out in times of great leadership. Dont mistake a position with the true value of someones worth, their true inner being. Narcicism should never be confused with integrity!
Everyone get out there and vote today!
