See. there's this thing called "a chain of command" ....it all starts with the President who tells the Chiefs of Staff who tell those below them, and so on and so on......

these lower level troops etc. don't get calls from president himself....they receive orders to go in or stand down as they're passed down from him though.

you recall the Somali pirates who were shot by our troops to rescue that ship's captain? Obama is the one who gave the order to "take them out"...and that order was passed down to the sniper who squeezed the trigger.
