He likes it!

Just watching and reading the latest on the Navy SEAL rescue of the hostages in Africa...

I watched the coverage of the President by Chris Mathews on MSNBC and now I'm getting a bit concerned.

The press is fawning over the President's decision...Mathews is going bonkers over a clip in which the President is congratulating the SecDef telling him "good job."

And we have a Commander in Chief that has no experience with the military -- and he has just been successful on two high risk military operations. 

DON'T GET ME WRONG...I'M EXTREMELY PLEASED THAT THESE OPERATIONS WERE SUCCESSFUL!

What concerns me is that this type of success can lead to the type of over confidence that will lead to tragedy.  Somewhere, someone is thinking about laying a trap for our guys.  Somewhere, someone is going to try for another BlackHawk down incident.

If a blogger in the backwoods can consider that possibility then I hope someone at SOCOM is considering it too.

And I hope SOCOM has someone with the balls to say no, when they're asked to cross a bridge too far.
