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?
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.
