Allen West Says "Community Organizer" Barack Obama Should Stop Bragging About Killing Bin Laden

​Congressman Allen West used Facebook on Friday to criticize President Barack Obama's attempts to "seem tough," telling Obama he should "stop with the Osama Bin Laden line" because "US Navy SEALS double-tapped that rascal."

One would think West would be more enthusiastic about a commander in chief's unwavering orders to ramp up intelligence efforts, missile strikes, and drone use before a unilateral mission into an allied country with the express purpose of shooting terrorists in the face.

The statement also raises the question of what commanders can take credit for (The Normany landings? Please, Eisenhower wasn't in those landing craft!). Curious logic from the guy who called himself a "modern-day Harriet Tubman" even though he's never gotten a single piece of legislation passed.

That's right -- the congressman who couldn't even muster enough support to pass a bill congratulating Palm Beach on its 100-year anniversary is going around telling people who can take credit for what.

The rest of the Facebook message looks to be a response to an interview Obama did with the Atlantic in which the president expressed his willingness to bomb Iranian nuclear facilities. Obama is set to meet with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu today to discuss the issue.

"PM Netanyahu understands his neighborhood," West wrote, "and we should defer to a former Israeli Commando on matters such as this instead of a community organizer."

West doesn't return our calls, and bin Laden could not be reached for comment because he's at the bottom of the ocean.
