Daily Pundit has the entire scoop.

  ” Fox News presented yet another
stunning revelation last week
when retired Gen. Jack Keane , the
former Vice Chief of Staff of the Army, told Fox host Mike Huckabee that intelligence sources had pinpointed the location of Osama’s safe house nearly a year before the raid.

   The White House refused to authorize any military action until there was undeniable proof (specifically photographs) showing that Bin Laden was living in the compound. Gen. Keane explained that many of the officials in the small upper echelon of military and government leaders who knew about the Abbottabad safe house
became very agitated over the delay, because “the longer you spend on something like that, the greater the likelihood is that the target will be compromised, because of your surveillance, and then the target will flee.” “

Charles C W Cooke offers this must-read piece in NRO .

“What happened in Colorado in the early hours of this morning was not a “tragedy” but a willful act of mass murder. Beyond his age, name, and ethnicity, nobody yet knows who the shooter is, or why he chose to do what he did. In my view, this is a blessing, albeit a temporary one; for, as.has been the way in recent years, once his partyregistration, television-viewing habits, and random scribblings become known to the public,
all sorts of hysterical speculation and unlettered accusations will burst forth.

  Whole groups will be vilified, blame will be apportioned to those many times removed, and the shooter will be partially absolved of blame by those who prefer to see fault in video games or talk radio or political rhetoric or anything else
that can be conscripted to explain why terrible things happen to good people. “
