We here at Of Buckley and Beatles would be remiss if we did not pay homage to a man of exceptional talents when we find him. A man who can shift from endeavor to endeavor without flinching. A man who is singularly qualified to do any job in Washington, it seems. A man who shortly after taking office is able to succeed where others had failed.
Of course we’re talking about Leon Panetta.
Is it any wonder why President Obama decided to move him over to the Department of Defense last week? This guy’s ability to kick Al Qaeda a$$ transcends the CIA. He can clean out his desk at the Department of Intelligence and kill sixteen terrorists before unpacking his things at Defense. The Navy Seal mission to kill Bin Laden? Came up with it in his exit interview. Yeah. He’s that good.
We see Donald Rumsfeld is out there asking for credit to be given to the Bush administration for taking out Osama Bin Laden. Please. Sit down Donald, you’re embarrassing yourself. We know there is only one man bada$$ enough to do what you had seven years to do.
So give it up for Leon Panetta. You have to. He’s CIA. He knows where you live.
