Obama is notorious for failing to keep his promises. The Navy SEAL who wrote about what really happened during the bin Laden raid, points out a broken promise from Obama. Obama still has not invited Seal Team Six to the White House for a beer.
From the NYTimes:
Although “No Easy Day” gives a strong sense of SEAL camaraderie and even the team members practical joking (who knew they could be punked with glitter?), the author’s fellow fighters are identified strangely at best. One is said to have a big head. Another has “hands as big as shovels.” A third resembles a taller version of the dwarf Gimli from “The Lord of the Rings,” and that’s about it for distinguishing characteristics. Before the bin Laden mission, the author says, he was present at the 2009 SEAL rescue of Richard Phillips, the captain of the cargo ship Maersk Alabama, from the hands of Somali pirates.
