Remember the heat President Obama took for filling out NCAA tournament brackets?
Many pundits argued that he was devoting too much of his time to sports prognostication when he should be solving real problems, like disasters in Japan, the Libyan crisis, or even finding the world’s most infamous terrorist.
Well, it seems Obama is quite the multi-tasker: The same week he was mulling hoops, he was also plotting the May 2 raid on bin Laden’s pig-sty of a mansion.
Business Insider has a good summary, but it seems Obama held a week of top-secret planning meetings beginning March 14. He publicly revealed his tournament picks on ESPN March 15.
Navy SEALS are better at taking out mass murderers than the president is at picking winners. Obama didn’t pick any team that appeared in the Final Four, but the SEALS got their man without suffering a casualty.
