One of the things I don’t understand about that whole line of attack is that in my own personal experiences, I have never made a clear decision at 3 am. Ever. In fact, I have made some pretty bad (disastrous) personal decisions at 3 am years ago. So what should Obama at 3am?
He should tell the right people to pay attention to the issue, tell them to get ready to brief him in the morning, and then go back to bed.
That is what I would do.
