That the President is garnering some political capital from his decision is what politicians do. I wonder what Bush would have done after the attack, given his publicity hogging landing on an aircraft carrier with a sign in the back ground that said "Mission Accomplished" and in reality, the mission had only begun.
Politicians never miss a chance to bank good publicity. It isn't right and it isn't wrong. It is what pols do. On the other hand what Matt did when he wrote the book was wrong on many levels. The least of which was that he chose to disrespect the long standing tradition of the Seals to not talk publicly about their missions. Not only is he bragging about his part in it, he is most likely going to make millions off the book. Shame on him. And the fact he did not not even use his own name tells me he is probably not someone I would want to have my back. The Seals are better off without him.
