And I was just about stuck there. A few years ago, I was working for an issues group right outside of Omaha in Council Bluffs. To a lot of people, it would seem a great gig. I barely had any accountability, didn't have to report to someone except by phone or email, worked from my office, and set my own hours. There were goals and expectations, but everything was so muddled and confusing that it was tough to figure out when I was doing well or really what I should be doing in the first place.
I don't think it was the SEALs who were responsible for finding bin Laden. Their job was to capture him after he had been located. Finding him would have been the job of the spooks at the CIA and probably other intelligence services.
