I found out yesterday that I may be able to do a sabbatical.
I would first have to provide "The Purpose" and get it approved.
Personal enrichment through acts of charity or further career development are looked highly upon....So I know that the Crow Nation in eastern Montana needs literacy education help. I hear it so much more than just teaching someone to read and write, it's coaching, mentoring and even building housing. I hear it is pretty challenging emotionally as well with some of the highest addiction and suicide rates in the country.
I don't think that would be fair to my wife though---but it sounds really enticing to me. Just a thought. Probably will not pursue it ...but the idea is rolling around my head like a giant snowball gathering momentum.
"Devils just trap trap trap trap. Sure it's a modified trap different than LeMaire's but even with two forecheckers they have the defense sitting back with the third guy clogging up the middle of the ice." - explanation of how the Devils still employ the trap
On what Bissonnette made of bin Laden not making a final stand:
Bissonnette: And some people would argue that, you know, why did that point man take those shots? Well, immediately, the first door we went to, my team was engaged by enemy fire through the door. So automatically, we know we're going into an enemy compound, shots being fired back at us immediately. AK found next to Khalid on the stairs. All those boxes have been checked that if a guy sticks his head around the corner, he very easily could have a gun. You don't wait to get that AK or the grenade thrown down the hall or the suicide vest. So in the split second, that's when he engaged.
Pelley: He did have a gun. But he didn't use it. And I wonder what you make of that?
Bissonnette: I think in the end, he taught a lot of people to do – you know, martyr themselves and he masterminded the 9/11 attacks. But in the end, he wasn't even willing to roger up himself with a gun and put up a fight. So I think that speaks for itself.
On how he saw the news announced to the world – and then modestly celebrated
Bissonnette: Yeah, we watched it live. It was – they had some TVs set up in the hangar that we were at. And, literally still in your camouflage uniform, our gear kind of set to the side, and we heard it was coming on. We went and gathered around and watched the address.
Pelley: What did you think?
Bissonnette: Now the world knows that we've got him.
Pelley: When you landed back in the United States, what did you think of all the media coverage?
Bissonnette: It was all surreal because, you know, this had all been so hush-hush leading up to it. We went and did it. And now it was the biggest news story ever. We got on a bus. They drove us back to work. I didn't even go in. They told us we had a couple days off. And I grabbed my keys, went and got in my truck and, you know, I put it in the book. But, you know, I hit Taco Bell on the way home, hit the drive-through, a couple tacos. And, you know, ate it in my car right there and then drove home.
Pelley: You were part of the team that killed Osama bin Laden and the first thing you do when you get back to the United States is go to Taco Bell?
Bissonnette: Two tacos and a bean burrito. It's routine.
