The Hill:

An expose published on Sunday alleges that President Obama deceived Americans with his narrative of the 2011 assassination of Osama bin Laden.

Author Seymour M. Hersh accuses Obama of rushing to take credit for the al Qaeda leader’s death.

This decision, Hersh argues in the London Review of Books, forced the military and intelligence communities to scramble and then corroborate the president’s version of events.

“High-level lying nonetheless remains the modus operandi of U.S. policy, along with secret prisons, drone attacks, Special Forces night raids, bypassing the chain of command, and cutting out those who might say no,” Hersh wrote of the Obama administration’s counterterrorism policies.

Hersh based his report on a single, anonymous source. This individual, he said, is a “retired senior intelligence official who was knowledgeable about the initial intelligence about bin Laden’s presence in Abottabad.”

Hersh’s source alleged that the Pakistani government had an active role in approving and implementing the raid on bin Laden’s compound.

Documents Recovered from Osama bin Laden’s Compound in Recovered in Pakistan Reveal Iran Is Assisting Al-Qaeda & Has Worked With Terrorist Group For Years

And you wonder why Barack Obama is so pissed that Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is speaking to Congress regarding Iran.

Steve Hayes of The Weekly Standard has delivered a bombshell … Obama Admin Ignored Proof of Iran-Al Qaeda Link After UBL Raid. The Obama White House has been sitting on these documents for years as they now look to make a nuclear deal with Iran. Are you kidding me. Hayes argued that the Obama administration does not want this information to come out as it seeks a deal with Tehran on its nuclear program. You think? How on earth does any US President ignore such a terrorist tie and claim to be acting in the best interest of the United States? This is why Obama has been hell-bent on preventing Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to speak to Congress and the American people. This has nothing to do with protocol issues, it is because Obama wants to make a deal with Iran at any cost. Barack Obama putting the “Hussein” in Barack Hussein Obama.

More striking is Iran’s support for al Qaeda. Last week, for the first time in nearly three years, the public saw new information from the bin Laden raid. Documents released as part of a terror trial in New York City show, in the words of the al Qaeda leaders themselves, Iran’s availability for training and safe haven. One letter from a senior al Qaeda operative to bin Laden in June 2010 lays out the plans of a core al Qaeda leader to travel to Iran. The letter notes that “Sheikh Yunis” is ready to travel and “the destination, in principle, is Iran. And he has with him six to eight brothers that he chose. I told him we are waiting for final complete confirmation from you to move and agree on this destination (Iran). His plan is: stay around for three months in Iran to train the brothers there then start moving them and distributing them in the world for their missions and specialties.”

This comes on top of what we already know about Iran and al Qaeda. As Thomas Joscelyn reported here last week, at least three al Qaeda plots targeting Western interests were hatched in Iran since Obama took office. As the administration pined for Iran to rejoin the community of civilized nations, the Treasury was churning out reports showing Tehran had no such interest. In its designation of Yasin al-Suri, “a prominent Iran-based al Qaeda facilitator,” Treasury wrote in December 2011: “Operating under an agreement between al Qaeda and the Iranian Government, al-Suri moves money and al Qaeda recruits from the Middle East through Iran and on to Pakistan and Afghanistan.”

New unclassified documents recovered from from the Osama bin Laden’s compound in Pakistan during the 2011 US Navy Seal team raid that killed UBL as evidence in the trial of a terrorism suspect show secret ties between Al Qaeda and Iran. Yes, that very Iran that President Barack Hussein Obama has been bending over backwards for trying to making a nuclear deal with has he throws our greatest ally in the Middle East, Israel, under the bus. It is becoming quite obvious now why Barack Obama and his minions have been trashing Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu ahead of his speech in front of Congress this coming Thursday as a preemptive strike to discredit him. What is Obama afraid of, Netanyahu will speak the truth?

This week, prosecutors in New York introduced eight documents recovered in Osama bin Laden’s compound in Pakistan as evidence in the trial of a terrorism suspect. The U.S. government accuses Abid Naseer of taking part in al Qaeda’s scheme to attack targets in Europe and New York City. And prosecutors say the documents are essential for understanding the scope of al Qaeda’s plotting.

More than 1 million documents and files were captured by the Navy Seals who raided bin Laden’s safe house in Abbottabad, Pakistan in May 2011. One year later, in May 2012, the Obama administration released just 17 of them.

While there is some overlap between the files introduced as evidence in Brooklyn and those that were previously made public in 2012, much of what is in the trial exhibits had never been made public before.

The files do not support the view, promoted by some in the Obama administration, that bin Laden was in “comfortable retirement,” “sidelined,” or “a lion in winter” in the months leading up to his death. On the contrary, bin Laden is asked to give his order on a host of issues, ranging from the handling of money to the movement of terrorist operatives.

Some of the key revelations in the newly-released bin Laden files relate to al Qaeda’s dealings with Iran and presence in Afghanistan.

More from Steve Hayes:

According to the report, the administration has only analyzed 10 percent of the more than one million documents they recovered.

On “America’s Newsroom,” Hayes argued that the Obama administration does not want this information to come out as it seeks a deal with Tehran on its nuclear program.

He said the president wants to “decouple” the negotiations on Iran’s nuclear program from the regime’s support for terrorist organizations.

Hayes said the initial “scrub” of the bin Laden documents by the CIA was very successful, producing 400 intelligence reports and leading to U.S. actions around the world against al Qaeda.

“Then it all stopped. The CIA basically sat on the documents. … I think it’s because the Obama administration didn’t want to know what was in them,” said Hayes, adding that the documents would have had “tremendous implications” for U.S. foreign policy overall.

Bill Clinton Tells Sky News on 9/10/01: “I Could Have Killed Osama bin Laden but Didn’t” … Guess What Took Place the Very Next Day?


The day before the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the United States, former President Bill Clinton spoke in Australia to about 30 business leaders during a lunch and stated on having passed on a chance to kill Osama bin Laden. A tape of Clinton’s comments were presented to Australia’s “Sky News” channel.

“And I’m just saying, you know, if I were Osama bin Laden — he’s very smart guy, I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about him — and I nearly got him once,” the former president reportedly says on the tape, to laughs. “I nearly got him. And I could have killed him, but I would have to destroy a little town called Kandahar in Afghanistan and kill 300 innocent women and children, and then I would have been no better than him. And so I didn’t do it.”

Just a reminder to Bill Clinton, you were the President of the United States and supposed to protect the lives of Americans, not worry about how the world would feel about you had you taken out Bin Laden with possible collateral damage.

Hmm, He would have had to destroy a little town called Kandahar in Afghanistan? You mean the one with a population of  1,151,100? So what would you have had to do again Mr. President? BTW, Clinton did not just have one chance to kill Osama Bin Laden, he had many.

NBC News has obtained, exclusively, extraordinary secret video, shot by the U.S. government.  It illustrates an enormous opportunity the Clinton administration had to kill or capture bin Laden. Critics call it a missed opportunity.

In the fall of 2000, in Afghanistan, unmanned, unarmed spy planes called Predators flew over known al-Qaida training camps.  The pictures that were transmitted live to CIA headquarters show al-Qaida terrorists firing at targets, conducting military drills and then scattering on cue through the desert.

Also, that fall, the Predator captured even more extraordinary pictures — a tall figure in flowing white robes. Many intelligence analysts believed then and now it is bin Laden.
