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?
Bin Laden Ordered Obama Assassination to Put “Completely Unprepared” Joe Biden Into Office of Presidency
This is rather interesting … Osama bin Laden ordered assassination of President Barack Obama to cause chaos and have a “completely unprepared” Joe Biden assume the Presidency. Hmm … imagine that logic, having a “totally unprepared and inept” President taken out in liu of a “completely unprepared” one. It would appear that Bin Laden spent one too many days in seclusion.
Who is the “completely unprepared” one?
Before his death, Osama bin Laden boldly commanded his network to organize special cells in Afghanistan and Pakistan to attack the aircraft of President Obama and Gen. David H. Petraeus.
“The reason for concentrating on them,” the al-Qaeda leader explained to his top lieutenant, “is that Obama is the head of infidelity and killing him automatically will make [Vice President] Biden take over the presidency. .?.?. Biden is totally unprepared for that post, which will lead the U.S. into a crisis. As for Petraeus, he is the man of the hour .?.?. and killing him would alter the war’s path” in Afghanistan.
Administration officials said Friday that the Obama-Petraeus plot was never a serious threat.
The scheme is described in one of the documents taken from bin Laden’s compound by U.S. forces on May 2, the night he was killed. I was given an exclusive look at some of these remarkable documents by a senior administration official. They have been declassified and will be available soon to the public in their original Arabic texts and translations.
Wasn’t it Biden who said, “Mark my words. Mark my words. It will not be six months before the world tests Barack Obama like they did John Kennedy. The world is looking … to stand with him. Because it’s not gonna be apparent initially, it’s not gonna be apparent that we’re right.”
Bin Laden must have missed former President Clinton’s comment that Obama Isn’t Ready, Too Inexperienced. I am guessing that Bin Laden had never seen the above VIDEO questioning Barack Obama’s lack of preparedness as stated by Joe Biden stating that being President does not lend itself to on the job training.
PRIORITIES … The following will come as a surprise to no one. He was so quick to take credit, but where was the President prior to the mission?
Good grief, Barack Obama, the Commander in Chief, was golfing prior to the US Navy SEAL mission that killed Bin Laden. According to the UK Daily Mail, Obama was golfing just 20 minutes before the Navy Seals began their mission to take out terrorist mastermind. As reported at Town Hall, according to a new book, SEAL Target Geronimo, written by former Navy SEAL commander Chuck Pfarrer, the President was not nearly that engaged – and was actually playing golf until 20 minutes before the operation began in earnest.
In the official photograph, he looked every inch the commander in chief.
Strain etched on his face, Barack Obama watched as the raid to kill Osama bin Laden played out on a television in front of him.
According to a new book, however, the President was not nearly that engaged – and was actually playing golf until 20 minutes before the operation began in earnest.
Only then did he down his clubs and return to the White House to watch what he later trumpeted as a great success of his presidency.
The book claims that Obama distanced himself by golfing from the mission in case something went wrong. You review what he has done the last 3 years as President and make the call.
Mr Pfarrer says the President’s role was largely inflated and suggests he stayed out on the golf course for so long so he could distance himself in case it went wrong. Mr Pfarrer writes: ‘If this had completely gone south, he was in a position to disavow.’
According to communications that Navy SEALs seized from his Pakistani hideout when they captured and killed Osama Bin Laden, the terror mastermind was planning an attack on the US on the 10 year September 11 anniversary.This info among much more was just part of the information that was discovered during the Seal Team 6 incursion.
Bin Laden and his operations chief, Attiyah Abd al-Rahman, swapped views about the composition of the attack team, with bin Laden repeatedly rejecting names that Rahman suggested, according to US officials familiar with the intelligence taken from the bin Laden compound.
The plans were only in the discussion phase, American officials said. They have not seen any signs that the nascent plot ever went beyond the early planning, the officials said.
However, Bin Laden’s days of planning any more terror attacks are done … Osama Bin Laden won’t be down for breakfast.
So GWB was a cowboy, eh? Looks like the Arab world respected the man in the hat more than the one with the teleprompter.
Didn’t Barack Obama promise that relations with the Arab would were going to change under his leadership? Who knew that meant for the worse. Well, actually many of us, but then again we did not vote for the carnival barker who promised “Hope & Change”. From Salon comes the following, what a shock this must be to the LEFT. But Barack Obama promised he would make us more liked on the Arab Street.
I’ve written numerous times over the last year about rapidly worsening perceptions of the U.S. in the Muslim world, including a Pew poll from April finding that Egyptians view the U.S. more unfavorably now than they did during the Bush presidency. A new poll released today of six Arab nations – Egypt, Lebanon, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Morocco — contains even worse news on this front:
UNREAL, The Walt Disney Company Wants to Profit from the Bravery of US Navy Seals who Killed Bin Laden by Trademarking “Seal Team 6”
Walt Disney should be rolling over in his grave … and be ashamed of what his company has become.
It would appear that it is not just President Barack Obama who wants to “spike the football” of the heroics of the US Navy Seal Team 6, but now the Walt Disney Company wants to profit from the actions of these heroes and trademark “Seal Team 6″. WTF!!! How does some one get to trademark a name that is part of a US Government military name? Seriously, how is not a government entity part of the public domain?
The trademark applications came on May 3rd, two days after the operation that killed Bin Laden… and two days after “Seal Team 6? was included in thousands of news articles and TV programs focusing on the operation.
Disney’s trademark applications for “Seal Team 6? cover clothing, footwear, headwear, toys, games and “entertainment and education services,” among other things.
And the story changes again …
So what is the truth as to what occurred in the US Seal team raid in the capture and killing of Osama Bin Laden? Was the raid caught on VIDEO or not? According to CBS News, the entire Seal raid was captured on tiny helmet cams worn by all Navy Seals.It seems to be yet another version of the story as to what happened in a killing of Bin Laden. Why has it been so difficult for Obama’s folks to communicate what actually happened?
A new picture emerged Thursday of what really happened the night the Navy SEALs swooped in on Osama bin Laden’s compound in Pakistan.
CBS News national security correspondent David Martin reports the 40 minutes it took to kill bin Laden and scoop his archives into garbage bags were all recorded by tiny helmet cameras worn by each of the 25 SEALs.
Officials reviewing those videos are still reconstructing a more accurate version of what happened. We now know that the only firefight took place in the guest house, where one of bin Laden’s couriers opened fire and was quickly gunned down. No one in the main building got off a shot or was even armed, although there were weapons nearby.
Wait a minute, via the Drudge Report, from the UK Telegraph comes the previous story that there was a VIDEO black out during the raid.CIA Director Leon Panetta stated there was a period of 25 minutes when the Seals were in the compound that the situation room did not know what was going on.
Obama Continues Spiking the Football, Obama: Killing Bin Laden “Should Inspire Us To Finish What We Started” By Reelecting Me …
For Obama, who cares about the present situation of the US, its all about reelection …
President Barack Obama is now using the death of Bin Laden as a reason to vote for his reelection. Unreal, wasn’t it Democrats who got upset when 9-11 was invoked by GWB? Well this is interesting, it would appear that Obama is not the only one who has made a “gutsy” decision. Some, ordered the raids multiple times … Bush twice sent commandos into Pakistan after jihadis.
However, do we really need for four more years the out of control spending and 9.0% unemployment of the Obama years? And should we be inspired by the over 100% increase in gas prices as well?

AUDIENCE MEMBER: Thank you for getting bin Laden.
THE PRESIDENT: Well, there you go. (Applause.) Case in point. (Applause.) It should inspire us to finish what we started …
As Weasel Zippers states, it would appear that “somewhere there’s a referee blowing his whistle and throwing a flag for excessive celebration”. That is correct, a 15 yard penalty for excessive celebration and one term!
President George W. Bush Received Greater Poll Bounce for Capture of Saddam Than Obama Got for Killing Bin Laden
In a word … GUTSY!
As reported at CNS News, former President GWB received a greater poll bounce for the capture of Iraq’s Saddam Hussein than Barck Obama did for the capture and killing of Osama Bin Laden. There’s something you will not here the bias MSM or Obama’s minions tout when they coordinate their talking points that Obama is “gutsy”. According to Gallup polls, GWB received a greater bounce than Obama did.
Obama Says, “really W, I plan on using all your same policies in the war on terror, even though I say otherwise. Because I hope to get a bounce one day, just like you.
Obama got a 6-point bounce in his Gallup job approval after he announced that U.S. Navy SEALS had raided a compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan and killed al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden. Bush got either a 7-point or a 9-point bounce—depending on the day you calculate from (Gallup used both figures)–after he announced that U.S. forces in Iraq had captured alive former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein.
Obama’s approval rating was at 46 percent for the three-day period ending on April 30 and again for the three-day period ending on May 1. Late on Sunday, May 1, Obama announced U.S. forces had killed bin Laden. After that, Obama’s job approval climbed for three straight days, peaking at 52 percent for the three-day period ending on May 4.
Rather interesting food for thought that you will never hear in the MSM. Also, if you have to have others tell people that you are “gutsy” its a good shot that you are not. Comparable to the size of a man wearing a bowling shirt that says “Slim”.
