Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta Admits on ‘Meet the Press’ that Information from Waterboarding Led US to Death of Bin Laden
Another White House lie debunked …
This morning on NBC’s ‘Meet the Press’, Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta admitted that information from Waterboarding lead to tracking down and the killing of Al-Qaeda mastermind terrorist Osama Bin Laden. So much for President Obama and his lap dog media’s parroting that waterboarding played no issue in killing Bin Laden.
“The real story was that in order to put the puzzle of intelligence together that led us to Bin Laden, there were a lot of pieces out there that were a part of that puzzle. Yes, some of it came from some of the tactics that were used at that time, interrogation tactics that were used. But the fact is we put together most of that intelligence without having to resort to that.”
The Gateway Pundit reminds us that this was not the first time that Panetta had made such comments.
Osama Bin Laden Movie “SEAL Team Six: The Raid on Osama bin Laden” From Obama Mega Donor Harvey Weinstein To Air Weekend Before the 2012 Presidential Election
Oh yeah, because the release of this film has nothing to do with politics and trying to make Obama’s reelection efforts.
Um, the timing on the release of this movie is more than suspect … Under campaign-finance laws the Obama campaign should be made to pay for the entire film. Despicable, talk about a free infomercial for Obama using the brave and heroic efforts of our Navy Seals for Obama’s reelection efforts. The Obama administration and Hollywood will do anything and use anyone to get Obama reelected.
For those on the LEFT that like to complain about big money donations for corporations and mega donors, I wonder if they will be outraged by the following? An Osama Bin Laden movie from Barack Obama mega donor Harvey Weinstein is to air the weekend before the 2012 Presidential election.Of course this is just a coincidence in the timing. Company co-chairman Harvey Weinstein is a prominent fundraiser for President Barack Obama’s re-election campaign. But of course that has nothing to do with the timing release of this movie.
Two days before Election Day on November 6, a movie detailing the raid that killed Osama bin Laden will air on the National Geographic Channel, the cable network announced Thursday.
The film is being distributed by the Weinstein Company, owned by a Harvey Weinstein, a major backer of President Barack Obama’s re-election campaign.
Titled, “SEAL Team Six: The Raid on Osama bin Laden,” the feature-length film will chronicle the raid in Pakistan, an event that Obama’s campaign touts as one of his crowning achievements.
From the AP, film makers lying through their teeth stating that the release of the film has nothing to do with politics, it was done to help promote the start of the channel’s fall season. Fall season, in November?
A film dramatizing the death of Osama bin Laden will debut next month on the National Geographic Channel, two days before the presidential election.
The channel says it will air “Seal Team Six: The Raid on Osama bin Laden,” distributed by The Weinstein Co., on Sunday, Nov. 4.
Company co-chairman Harvey Weinstein is a prominent fundraiser for President Barack Obama’s re-election campaign.
National Geographic Channel President Howard T. Owens said Thursday that the film’s air date is unrelated to politics and was chosen to help promote the start of the channel’s fall season.
Daily Commentary – Wednesday, September 19, 2012 – So It’s Ok for the Obama Administration to Leak Details of the Bin Ladin Raid
- But not ok when the information is written in a book by one of the seals involved in the raid
Very interesting and must read article in the Washington Post where Eliot Cohen, a distinguished military historian and scholar of civilian-military relations, and foreign policy adviser to Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney asks the important Ronald Reagan slightly modified question, Are you safer now than you were four years ago?
Has President Obama been a competent steward of U.S. national security?
Set aside the opening follies of this administration, such as the cringe-inducing “reset” button given to Russia’s foreign minister that yielded no cooperation but managed to produce anti-American venom from Vladimir Putin and the harassment of our ambassador to Moscow by thugs in Putin’s youth movement.
Set aside the hypocrisy of the Obama team’s scorn at former governor Mitt Romney’s lack of foreign policy experience, given that its own candidate, during his two years in the Senate prior to his presidential campaign, managed to produce one large goof: contemptuous certainty that the surge of U.S. troops to Iraq in 2007 would fail (VIDEO).
Set aside even the unseemliness of the president blaming America’s failures abroad on the George W. Bush administration while claiming credit for operations whose foundations were laid during the Bush presidency.
Disregard all this, and the answer remains no.
Yes, Obama ordered the killing of Osama bin Laden. So would any president who had him in American gun sights — imagine the furor if any commander in chief were to refrain from giving that order. But has Obama ended our war with Islamist extremists?
Read the entire article, quite enlightening and shows Obama for what he really is when it comes to foreign policy, a novice at best. Barack Obama’s greatest foreign policy accomplishments are those that he “inherited” from GWB. Its safe to say that Obama just adopted W’s drone attacks. The reason why BO does more is because he does not have the MSM claiming that innocent women and children are killed in missile attacks like W was at every strike. Some how the MSM never mentions that now. What a coincidence. Also, the tips that began the get Bin Laden efforts were started under W and dare I say, waterboarding.
Lib Democrat NH Senator Jeanne Shaheen Introduces Obama as Individual who Led the Mission to Get Bin Laden
Who lead the mission …
Yesterday, New Hampshire Democrat Senator Jeanne Shaheen introduced President Obama at a campaign event by saying that he was the president “led the mission that brought Osama bin Laden to justice”. Is it any wonder that US Navy Seals are a bit peeved at Obama and Democrats for claiming all the credit and the leaks that came from the Obama White House?
What a shock, there was no mention from the liberal New Hampshire Senator that Obama was also the one that cancelled the raids to get Obama on three different occasions. With the comments that Barack Obama made about small businesses and “you didn’t build it,” I find it rather ironic that he would take credit for leading the mission. Hey Barack, “You did not kill it”.
Barack Obama Canceled Operation to Kill Osama 3 Different Times at Adviser Valerie Jarrett’s Urging, Then Waited 16 Hrs to Make Call
This gives ‘Leading from Behind’ a new meaning … Does Obama and the MSM really want to get into a “WIMP” debate? When a Commander in Chief fails to pull the trigger in three separate occasions and takes military advise from a political adviser, one might not have the right to be called “Commander”.
Thisguy wussed out three times and had the audacity to spike the football after OBL’s death?
“President Obama’s greatest success was actually his greatest failure,” Leading From Behind,“ he said, traces the arc of six key Obama administration decisions, and shows how the president made them — and, often, failed to make them. (Miniter told The Daily Caller Friday.)
Barack Obama and his spin minions tried to make the killing of Osama Bin Laden as the crown jewel of Obama’s war on terror. Oh sorry, overseas contingency operation. It was supposed to make Obama look tough; however, from Richard Minter’s book, ‘Leading from Behind’ we learn an interesting factoid regarding the war-hawk Barack Obama. It would appear that Obama canceled the operation to kill Bin Laden on three separate occasions, before finally approving the May 2, 2011 Navy SEAL mission. Then he waited 16 hours to finally pull the trigger, if you will.
At the urging of Valerie Jarrett, President Barack Obama canceled the operation to kill Osama bin Laden on three separate occasions before finally approving the May 2, 2011 Navy SEAL mission, according to an explosive new book scheduled for release August 21. The Daily Caller has seen a portion of the chapter in which the stunning revelation appears.

Shocker, Liberal Biased SNL Scraps Skit Critical of Obama on Killing Osama bin Laden Day … Replaces It with Another Fox News Parody
Oh those avant guard SNL comedians ,,, they just live on the edge at SNL.
Leave it to the uber Libs at Saturday Night Live to once again be in the tank for President Barack Obama. Look for SNL to no longer have any skits that are critical of Obama’s incompetence as president or his failed policies. As reported at The Daily Caller, SNL scrapped a skit that was to be critical and make fum of President Barack Obama taking full credit for the US Navy Seals killing Osama Bin Laden. Instead they replaced it with, wait, wait for it … a skit bashing Fox News, FOX & FRIENDS.
The Daily Caller has obtained a scrapped sketch critical of President Barack Obama that was intended for airing at the opening of last night’s “Saturday Night Live” on NBC.
In the skit, President Obama addresses Americans soon after the first anniversary of the killing of Osama bin Laden — and he makes sure to remind viewers that all credit for the raid on the terrorist leader’s compound belongs to him.
“I hope you had a safe and joyous first anniversary of his killing,” the president, portrayed by Fred Armisen, begins.
“Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to be at home this year, as I had to fly to Afghanistan, to remind President Karzai that, exactly one year ago, we killed Osama bin Laden, and that the decision to do so was a gutsy one,” the president continues. “And was mine.”
The president then outlines what gifts are appropriate on the anniversaries of “Killing Osama bin Laden Day,” and reminds his audience that “heavy drinking, and Killing Osama bin Laden Day, are never a good combination.”
Read the script to the skit HERE that got nixed in place of the same old tired skit SNL runs mocking Fox & Friends. Pathetic.
Retired General Jack Keane Tells Huckabee that Barack Obama Knew About Bin Laden’s Hideout in Abbottabad Since Summer of 2010 … Did not Act Until May 2011
I wonder if Mitt Romney would have waited a year to attack Osama Bin Laden as Obama did?
Wow, now this sounds more like the Commander in Chief Barack Obama that we are accustomed to. According to retired General Jack Keane, Barack Obama knew about Osama Bin Laden’s hideout in Abbottabad, Pakistan since the summer of 2010. General Keane told Mike Huckabee that President Obama wanted absolute proof that OBL was living there. I must have missed this Obama dragging of his heels in his “Me, me, me, I, I. I” political ad regarding Bin Laden’s death. As we know from Obama’s spiking of the OBL football, it was not until one year later in May 2011 that Obama finally approved the mission for the heroic US Navy Seals to get Bin Laden.
General Jack Keane (Retired), the former Vice Chief of Staff of the Army, told Mike Huckabee tonight that Barack Obama knew about Osama Bin Laden’s hideout since the summer of 2010. But Barack Obama refused to act for several months. He wanted absolute proof first that Osama was living there. It wasn’t until May of 2011 that he agreed to attack Bin Laden’s compound, almost a year later.
Barack Obama passed through Obamacare faster than he dealt with the attack of OBL’s compound. Go figure.
Hat Tip: The Gateway Pundit
No wonder Obama tried to get out ahead of the reality of what transpired with the US Navy Seal raid by playing politics and taking credit. I guess we also begin to see his mind set as to why Obama officials drafted a memo to blame the military if the Bin Laden mission failed. Obama was looking for political plausible deniability at all cost.
Disgraceful Actions of a President: SEAL’s Slam Barack Obama For Using Them As “Ammunition” In Taking Credit For Bin Laden Killing During Election Campaign
There is nothing more Un-Presidential and pathetic than a President to try and take all the credit and politicize the brave actions of others. Such is the case with the US Navy Seals actions in killing Osama bin Laden one year ago and Barack Obama creating a political add making it all about him. I think that we can all agree with the Navy Seal’s outrage that Obama used them as political ammunition.
Watch the disgraceful Obama political ad below … how small and Un-Presidential could one be?
Serving and former US Navy SEALs have slammed President Barack Obama for taking the credit for killing Osama bin Laden and accused him of using Special Forces operators as ‘ammunition’ for his re-election campaign.
The SEALs spoke out to MailOnline after the Obama campaign released an ad entitled ‘One Chance’.
Ryan Zinke, a former Commander in the US Navy who spent 23 years as a SEAL and led a SEAL Team 6 assault unit, said: ‘The decision was a no brainer. I applaud him for making it but I would not overly pat myself on the back for making the right call.
‘I think every president would have done the same. He is justified in saying it was his decision but the preparation, the sacrifice – it was a broader team effort.’
Mr Zinke, who is now a Republican state senator in Montana, added that MR Obama was exploiting bin Laden’s death for his re-election bid. ‘The President and his administration are positioning him as a war president using the SEALs as ammunition. It was predictable.’
Imagine Barack Obama trying to take credit for others and making it all about him … what a surprise? Just curious, how come he does not blame this one on Bush and all the intel that was gained during W’s Presidency? Hmm?
