And AGAIN with Lyin’ Brian – Osama’s Chopper

Brian Williams has said that a friend of his in the Pentagon gave him “a piece of the fuselage of the chopper that didn’t make it in Abbottabad. It’s one of the toughest things to get. And the president has a piece of it as well.”

Uh huh. NOT. According to all the reports I read, the fuselage was destroyed by our operators before they bugged out of Pakistan.

Chopper downed in bin Laden raid - fuselage destroyed

They weren’t able to destroy the tail assembly, probably because it had landed on the other side of the wall. The Pakistanis kept it for a while, then returned it to the Pentagon.

Chopper downed in bin Laden raid - tail survived

Could Williams have obtained a piece of the tail? Suuuuuuuuuure.  Cuz like people in the military are always walking off with bits of super secret stealth technology, just like they always fly First Ladies and their teen-aged daughters into live fire zones.

President Coward: CEO of Untruth Inc.

OBAMA Cowardly Liar

These may be the two most important things you can view/read this week.

Sep 5, 2014: President Coward by Bill Wittle [7:10]

President Obama delayed the Osama bin Laden raid for months out of fear of what a failed attempt would do to his re-election chances. He sent the men in the rescue helicopters back to their bunks as he watched our people die in real time at Benghazi. And he delayed the mission to rescue James Foley and other ISIS hostages so long, it failed. Why? Because he didn’t want to be “Carterized.”

Sep 9, 2014: Obama’s Untruth Inc. by Victor Davis Hanson

“The two fuels that run Untruth, Inc., are, first, a realization that most of the president’s policies, whether deliberately or as a result of indifference and laziness, run counter to what most Americans support, and, second, a media establishment so invested in his agenda that it will not call the administration to account. So the engine of lying keeps humming.

On any given day the president of the United States can step up to the teleprompter amid the latest disaster and swear that he did not do what he just did, or insist that someone else, not he, did the dastardly deed, or simply skip over recent history and make things up. The press at first quibbles, then nods in agreement, and Obama is empowered to do it again and again. We have not seen such a disingenuous president since Richard Nixon — but he, at least, was countered rather than enabled by the media.”

From Junior Varsity to Evil Cancer in just SEVEN MONTHS?

Well, only according to President Unicorn, who told us over and over and over that the death of Osama bin Laden and removal of U.S. troops from Iraq meant that Bush’s “stupid” Global War on Terror was over, Over, OVER.

Those of us who have been PAYING ATTENTION have known disaster was inevitable … just like we know the economy is headed for a great big, possibly fatal crash because of the Obamacrats’ out-of-control spending. But that’s another story.

Today, I want to share the 2014 Junior Varsity to Evil Cancer timeline.

  • On January 27, 2014, President Obama dismissed al-Qaeda inspired groups (like ISIS) as nothing more than junior varsity wannabes.

The analogy we use around here sometimes, and I think is accurate, is if a jayvee team puts on Lakers uniforms that doesn’t make them Kobe Bryant. … I think there is a distinction between the capacity and reach of a bin Laden and a network that is actively planning major terrorist plots against the homeland versus jihadists who are engaged in various local power struggles and disputes, often sectarian,” Obama said in an interview with The New Yorker.

  • On January 28, 2014, Obama said we needed to get off a “permanent war footing.”

Four Months Later …

  • On May 28, 2014, Obama had to admit that, oopsie, these “jayvee” groups had indeed become Kobe Bryant.

As the Syrian civil war spills across borders, the capacity of battle-hardened extremist groups to come after us only increases,” Obama said at West Point. “And the need for a new strategy reflects the fact that today’s principal threat no longer comes from a centralized al Qaeda leadership. Instead it comes from decentralized al Qaeda affiliates and extremists, many with agendas focused in the countries where they operate.

  • On June 24, 2014, after ISIS captured Mosul, Iraq, SecState Kerry admitted this came as a big surprise to the Obama Administration.

We don’t have people embedded in those [Iraqi] units, and so obviously nobody knew that,” Kerry said on Fox News.

Yes, well, that’s what happens when President Ostrich insists we all play Let’s Pretend GWOT Is Over.

  • On July 23, 2014, an Obama State Department official said ISIS is a “full-blown army … worse than al Qaeda.”

It is al Qaeda in its doctrine, ambition and, increasingly, in its threat to U.S. interests. … In fact, it is worse than al Qaeda,” McGurk told the House Armed Services Committee. “[ISIS] is no longer simply a terrorist organization. It is now a full-blown army seeking to establish a self-governing state through the Tigris and Euphrates valley in what is now Syria and Iraq.”

  • On August 8, 2014, Obama said the U.S. has a “strategic interest” in stopping them.

We do have a strategic interest in pushing back ISIL. We’re not going to let them create some caliphate through Syria and Iraq, but we can only do that if we know that we’ve got partners on the ground who are capable of filling the void,” Obama told The New York Times. (IS, ISIS, and ISIL are all the same group.)

These “partners on the ground” would be the coalition Bush assembled for his “stupid” war …

Those former allies that Obama has systematically ignored and disrespected since Bush retired? Those partners that Obama left hanging when he pulled our troops out so he could do his “I killed Osama” end zone dance again and again?

  • On August 20, 2014, after ISIS beheaded U.S. journalist James Foley, Obama called the group a “cancer” and SecState Kerry called them “evil.”

Junior Varsity to Evil Cancer in just seven months?!

Isn’t this like a doctor who ignored your symptoms until they had grown into a Stage 4 malignancy?

  • August 21, 2014: Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel says ISIS is “beyond anything that we’ve seen”

“ISIL is as sophisticated and well-funded as any group that we have seen. They’re beyond just a terrorist group. They marry ideology, a sophistication of strategic and tactical military prowess. They are tremendously well funded. This is beyond anything that we’ve seen. So we must prepare for everything. And the only way you do that is that you take a cold, steely, hard look at it and … get ready.”

Oh, right. “Cold, steely, hard” and “prepare for everything” … you mean, like how BUSH did it?

My only hope is in Jesus

(This is a great montage of Gowdy’s Benghazi statements. The last cut is a tear jerker.)

Senior Airman Brian Kolfage is a United States hero. He is a triple-amputee veteran of the War in Iraq who has surpassed all odds and made the most incredible recovery of any veteran to ever survive his injuries. Below is his letter to Obama. It made me cry. My kids served in the Iraq War too. They came home whole in body, but many of their friends did not. I have very jumbled feelings about the idea that all their sacrifice was “wasted.” From an earthly, political point of view, that’s apparently true. But I try to look at the world through God’s view finder, where the point of everything is the salvation of individual souls. From that point of view, no act of kindness of self-sacrifice is ever wasted.

My Open Letter to Obama.

I nearly died in a war that you and most of your colleagues supported overwhelmingly, including the two presidents who came before you. Many citizens may not agree with waging war in Iraq to free the oppressed Iraqi citizens, but it’s something that warriors like myself have zero control over. I joined to serve my country and to better my life. I’ve seen things that you could never imagine, and they have made me the person I am today.

Mr. Obama, even though we share extreme opposite views, we have one thing in common, we both attended school in Hawaii. However, that’s where the similarities end. You see, as you attended your exclusive, private school, I would ride my bike to Kaimuki High school in one of the roughest areas in Hawaii every morning and would ride past Punahou, the exclusive private school you attended. I would notice the Bentleys, Maseratis, and fancy foreign cars that all the kids were dropped off in; wow, it must have been extremely rough in Hawaii living that life, right? I could only imagine what it was like to have that kind of money. Fortunately for you, not many people are aware of the school and the upper class citizens who attended it. The tuition to attend your exclusive private school was more than it cost me to obtain a Bachelor’s degree in Architecture from the University of Arizona. You talk a big game when it comes to financial inequality, yet I’m quite sure you have no idea what it’s truly like to have sacrifice. You were one of the elitist children in Hawaii.

After High School, we each chose very different paths. You were able to attend Ivy League schools, and I sought out a military career to in hopes of earning a degree. What we have in life as children usually sets the tone for what we will face later in life that will make us successful. I worked to get where I am today, and YOU WERE HANDED IT….Mr. Inequality.

I volunteered to go to Iraq on both of my deployments, and the second time I begged to go even after I wasn’t selected, which ultimately got me placed on the team where I would lose both legs and my dominant arm. I’ve never asked myself was losing 3 limbs in a war worth it, even though many Americans were against it.

I am frequently reminded of the many young Iraqi children who would beg me for water, food, and toys while I was stationed in Iraq. Children who in all aspects made the poorest of poor American children look rich. You have no idea what it really means to be poor. It’s laughable that you, who would have no idea what it means to be poor, would so frequently play the inequality card.

While I was in Iraq, our mission was to liberate the Iraqi citizens from a tyrant and that’s what we did. Never forget, it was your people who sent us there, like the Clintons, John Kerry, Nancy Pelosi & Carl Levin. However, since the day you busted onto the scene you’ve been talking about ending the war and pulling the troops out, not understanding the blood sweat and tears that so many Americans and Iraqis invested. And with complete disregard for every life sacrificed, every limb lost, and every broken family, you bailed on our mission to pursue an agenda that was completely centered on your re-election in 2012. If you didn’t bail on Iraq you were worried that you may not get re-elected and that’s a fact. Just before elections on Oct 11, 2012 you said “Al Qaeda is on the run and Osama bin Laden is dead.” Look at Iraq now, they are in shambles and the Al Qaeda flag is flying freely. Clearly, you’re unfit for duty as a Commander in Chief. You put your own agenda ahead of America’s agenda, and now you have single handedly ruined and destroyed nearly everything we gained in Iraq. It clearly means nothing to you, because the only thing that you’ve personally invested in that country was a promise to bail on them. However, people like me gave limbs, friends have died, and we’ve watched families destroyed by war’s aftermath.

I’m not placing blame on you for the war, I’m placing blame on you for destroying what we’ve worked so hard to build. You’re not a leader, you’re a community organizer. A leader would have stood up regardless of the situation and put America’s agenda first and that is ensuring a secure Iraq even after 10 years of war. But, you placed Barack first, just as Robert Gates confirmed in his new book. I can’t help but think of those poor kids who I gave water and toys to 11 years ago. They’re probably 15 or 16 years old now, and I can only imagine what it’s like for them to have their nation being torn apart yet again, all because of your poor leadership qualities. Regardless of why we went to Iraq, it’s water under the bridge. We went there, we waged war, and we not only owed it to our KIA’s but we owed it to the citizens of Iraq. We invaded their country and turned it upside down, and you bailed on them. You bailed on our soldiers and you’ve wasted every death and every limb, it’s all for nothing. And to make matters worse you blame others for your failures.

You’re just another elitist rich thug who’s pretended to live the rough life growing up in the inner city. You’re only worried about your own agenda and furthering your party instead of taking care of Americans. Your inability to be a leader at some of the most critical points has caused both of our wars to fail. You’ve been a joke to most of our veteran community and we have no faith in your ability to lead.

Malignant Narcissism in the White House

2013_09 Why folks don't trust BHO on Syria

Barack Obama never was a great man. He never was even a good man.

  • As Navy Seals approached Osama bin Laden’s hideout, Barack Obama played cards with his pals.
  • While our consulate in Benghazi was under armed assault, Barack Obama packed a bag for Vegas and went to bed early.
  • As the Navy Yard death toll mounted, Barack Obama delivered a strident speech about how evil all Republicans are.

We had lots of reasons to know the shallow, petty, malignant character of Barack Obama, but the MSM didn’t care to expose it to the majority of voters. Here’s just one story we should have heard, but did not:

When Obama was in the Illinois Senate, a man got flustered trying to introduce him to a friend. In the nervous rush of the moment, he totally blanked on his friend’s name. Obama said, “Well, I guess he isn’t your friend, is he?” Then he presented his business card, said, “You’ll be hearing about me,” and left.

Can you imagine how the media would have handled that story if it had featured Sarah Palin?

The MSM is still trying to cover for Obama, even as he throws them under the bus whenever it suits his ego. But you can’t beat the internet for getting the truth out from under slimey partisan rocks.

Extortion 17

If the accusations being made by the Extortion 17 families are true, the Obama Administration is guilty of 38 murders.

May 10, 2013: Parents of Aaron Vaughn interviewed by Megan Kelly

Extortion 17 could be a bigger scandal and betrayal of Americans than Benghazi. While Benghazi resulted in four American deaths, Extortion 17 resulted in 38 deaths, including nearly two dozen Navy SEALs.

Many of these SEALs were made famous, credited with the killing of Osama bin Laden.

The Chinook helicopter they were aboard was shot down by Taliban forces, which written testimony confirms knew the elite forces were coming into the area.

Extortion 17 was the helicopter’s call sign.

Families are going after the Obama administration for what they believe were leaks that led to their family members’ deaths.

According to Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT), chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform subcommittee on National Security, “We’re going to dive into this.”

Great Moments in the History of the Democrat Party

In 1838, Democrat Presidents Andrew Jackson and his successor Martin Van Buren herded Indians into camps, tormented them, burned and pillaged their homes and forced them to relocate with minimal supplies. Thousands died along what is now known as the Trail of Tears.

In 1860, the pro-slavery faction of the Democrat Party responded to Republican Abraham Lincoln’s presidential election by seceding from the union. This led directly to the Civil War.

In 1865, Democrat Nathan Bedford Forrest and 5 other Confederate Democrats formed the first Ku Klux Klan.

In 1868, Democrat President Andrew Johnson became the first of only two American presidents (both Democrats) to be impeached. He was acquitted by the Senate, falling a single vote short of the necessary 2/3 needed to remove him from office.   < Alert Reader Hubby pointed out I got this one way wrong and should just delete it as, for anyone who knows American History, it’s not a good example anyway. I’m glad one of us did not snooze through American History!

In 1868, Democrats in Opelousas, Louisiana killed nearly 300 Blacks who tried to foil an assault on a Republican newspaper editor.

In 1917 and following: The Democrat Attorney General of the U.S. boasted that the American Protective League (a Democrat-founded and Democrat-sponsored group of private vigilantes) provided him with “several hundred thousand private citizens … keeping an eye on disloyal individuals and making reports of disloyal utterances.” In the 1920s, the Ku Klux Klan recruited members from the Southern branches of the APL.

From 1919-1921: Under Democrat President Woodrow Wilson and his Democrat Attorney General A. Mitchell Palmer, hundreds of foreign citizens were rounded up in and deported for allegedly being political threats to America.

In 1922, a Republican introduced a bill in Congress that would have made lynching a federal crime. Filibustering Senate Democrats killed the measure.

From 1947-1972, Democrats in Alabama knowing withheld penicillin from Black participants in the Tuskegee Syphilis Experiment. As a result, a number of the subjects needlessly infected their loved ones and died, after they could have been cured.

In 1942, Democrat President Franklin D. Roosevelt issued an executive order that led to more than 100,000 Japanese Americans being put into bleak, remote internment camps surrounded by barbed wire and armed guards for the duration of World War II.

In 1950, Alger Hiss was proven to have been a Soviety spy. Hiss had helped advise FDR at Yalta and was strongly defended by Left-wing liberals until the Verona papers proved conclusively he was guilty.

In 1960, the West Virgina Democrat primary was rigged by John F. Kennedy. The Wall Street Journal investigated, found proof that Kennedy had bought the votes he needed to win the nomination, then buried the story for decades.

In 1961, after training a Cuban militia to overthrow Castro, Democrat President John F. Kennedy got cold feet and didn’t give the men all the air support they were promised. As a result, they were easily defeated by Castro’s men at the Bay of Pigs.  The failed invasion strengthened the brutal regime of the anti-American dictator Fidel Castro.

In 1963, Democrat Bull Connor used attack dogs and fire hoses on children and teenagers marching for civil rights. Democrat George Wallace declared his commitment to “segregation now, segregation tomorrow, segregation forever.”

In 1964, Democrat President Lyndon Johnson dramatically escalated our troops’ presence in Vietnam while he simultaneously put political restrictions in place that made the war unwinnable. As a result, 58,000 Americans died in a pointless conflict.

In 1969, the Democrats’ beloved “Liberal Lion” of the Senate, Ted Kennedy ran off the road into a tidal pool with passenger Mary Jo Kopechne in the car. Kennedy swam free, leaving Mary Jo trapped inside the car, where she suffocated slowly. Kennedy spent the next 9 hours plotting how he would spin the accident to the press and save his political career.

In 1975, Democrats abandoned our allies in the elected government of South Vietnam, which was quickly overrun by the dictatorial Communists in the North.

From 1979-1981, after Democrat President abandoned our ally in the Shah of Iran, radical Islamists took over the government and held 52 Americans hostage. Carter made only one disastrous rescue attempt. The hostages were not released until one minute after Republican Ronald Reagan replaced Carter as POTUS.

In 1996, Democrat President Bill Clinton turned down the opportunity to capture Osama Bin Laden, although he knew that bin Laden planned to commit crimes against America.

In 1998, Democrat President Bill Clinton became the second of only two American presidents (both Democrats) to be impeached. The Senate was split 50-50, so failed to achieve the 2/3 needed to remove him from office.

In 2011, the United States received its first less-than-AAA credit rating in nearly 100 years.

UPDATE TWO: Alert Mormon Reader Angelaisms emailed this bit of history previously unknown to moi:

A lesser known but still important addition to this list: The persecution faced by the early members of the LDS Church was decidedly illegal — raping, pillaging, murdering, assaulting, false imprisonment, etc. Appeals to local governments were largely fruitless. I think it was after the LDS people had been chased out of Missouri by (Democrat) Gov. Lilburn Bogg’s Extermination Order (which, incidentally, was repealed with apology… in 1979) and had settled in Illinois that Joseph Smith took his case to Washington DC, begging President Martin Van Buren for help — my timeline is a little sketchy.

But I do know that, when that went down, Van Buren turned a deaf ear to his pleas. Joseph Smith was eventually jailed in Illinois on and murdered in prison by a mob of men with painted faces; the mob was later exonerated in a kangaroo court, and the LDS people had to flee the United States for the Mexican territory (Utah) shortly thereafter. So, well done President Van Buren.

Surely the persecution faced by the Mormons in Missouri had NOTHING WHATSOEVER to do with the fact that they were abolitionists. /sarc Don’t get me wrong; there were jerks on my side too. But even if they were ALL jerks, they still deserved the protection of the law.

The lying liars in the Obama White House

This much we know.

Sunday, May 1, 2011: SEALs raided Osama bin Laden’s compound in Pakistan and killed him.

Monday, May 2, 2011: The White House was blabbing about it the next day, thereby destroying any benefit we could have reaped from the intelligence gathered at the compound. The White House also leaked critical details about the mechanics and personnel of the raid itself, seriously compromising the safety of the men and their families and hurting the success of future operations.

Ever since: “Obama got bin Laden” has been a major them in Obama’s re-election campaign.

But who really “got” bin Laden?

Click on graphic to embiggen.

The White House version of the events leading up to the raid, as recounted by Vice President Joe Biden, is that the “entire national security apparatus” sat down in the Situation Room and Obama asked each one’s recommendation. According to Biden, it was 50-50, go-don’t go; as Obama “walked out the room, it dawned on me, he’s all alone. This is his decision. If he was wrong, his Presidency was done. Over.” Ever since, Obama, Biden and their surrogates have been showering accolades on Obama for having made “one of the most gutsiest calls of any president in recent memory.”

But that isn’t what others are saying. And it is not what the written record reveals.

Tuesday, May 3, 2011: Just 2 days after the raid, a secret “Deep Throat” source, known as White House Insider, reported to the Ulsterman blog that senior military and intelligence officials had deliberately by-passed President Obama on this decision. According to White House Insider,

President Obama was, in this case, as in all others, working as an absentee president.

There had been a push to invade the compound for several weeks if not months, primarily led by Leon Panetta, Hillary Clinton, Robert Gates, David Petraeus, and Jim Clapper. The primary opposition to this plan originated from Valerie Jarrett, and it was her opposition that was enough to create uncertainty within President Obama. Every time military and intelligence officials appeared to make progress in forming a position, Jarrett would intervene and the stalling would begin again.

Panetta warned that the fact they knew Osama bin Laden’s location was bound to get out; if Obama failed to do anything to capture him, the political backlash would cripple his administration. Jarrett totally nixed a bombing raid, which would have killed the terrorist leader with little risk to American lives, but agreed they could go along with a ground raid.

Nevertheless, when that raid was ready to go, Jarrett again convinced Obama to refuse permission. Obama’s then Chief of Staff Bill Daley fully supported Panetta, Clinton and Gates in going ahead with the raid and told them that, if the raid failed, he would disclose the president’s indecision to the American public. Panetta initiated the raid himself, keeping both President Obama and Valerie Jarrett out of the loop.

Wednesday, May 4th, 2011: Craig Whitlock, who covers the Pentagon and national security for the pro-Obama Washington Post, published a lengthy feature article about Admiral McRaven that strengthens the image of Barack Obama as a narcissist grotesquely taking credit for the operation:

“As US helicopters secretly entered Pakistani airspace Sunday, the Joint Operations Center at Bagram Airfield in Afghanistan was under the control of a square-jawed admiral from Texas who had labored for years to find Osama bin Laden’s elusive trail. Vice Adm. William H. McRaven, one of the most experienced terrorist hunters in the US government, had tapped a special unit of Navy SEALs for the mission two months earlier. A former SEAL himself, McRaven had overseen weeks of intensive training for a covert operation that could cripple al-Qaeda if it worked, or strain an already troubled alliance with Pakistan if it went awry. The search for bin Laden was led by the CIA, which painstakingly pieced together scraps of intelligence that eventually pointed to a high-walled compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan. … On Friday, [April 29, 2011] McRaven received the green light from Panetta to launch the raid at the earliest opportunity.”

Nearly a year later, TIME magazine published a memo written two days before the raid that matched up with the information above.

Friday, April 29, 2011: Memo by Director of the CIA Leon Panetta –

For the record

Received phone call from [Obama’s National Security Advisor] Tom Donilon who stated that the President made a decision with regard to AC1 [Abbottabad Compound 1]. The decision is to proceed with the assault.

The timing, operational decision making and control are in Admiral McRaven’s hands. The approval is provided on the risk profile presented to the President. Any additional risks are to be brought back to the President for his consideration. The direction is to go in and get bin Laden and if he is not there, to get out. Those instructions were conveyed to Admiral McRaven at approximately 10:45 am.

Leon Panetta, DCIA

This memo proves President Obama did not gather his team in a room and make a “gutsy call.” He didn’t even make the phone call to Panetta. And his operational instructions were absurdly vague, just to go “get” bin Laden.

Far from personally walking through every stage of the operation with his national security team, Barack Obama made sure that, should the mission fail, Admiral McRaven could be thrown under the bus for failing to “bring back for his consideration” whatever “additional risks” they’d encountered, no matter how trivial or last minute they might be.

And instead of protecting or evacuating the man who actually located where Osama bin Laden was living, the Obama administration’s self-glorifying leaks handed Pakistanis enough information to identify, arrest and sentence the man to more than 30 years in prison for helping a foreign intelligence agency.

May 29, 2011: Pakistani Doctor who found bin Laden for us [2:48]

April 30, 2012: Rush Limbaugh reported further evidence, from an anonymous source, that Panetta et al. had cut Obama and Jarrett out of the loop:

“They had to go call the president off the golf course and get him into that Situation Room an hour and a half before the attack so he was there for the photo-op. And if you’ll notice, if you’ve seen the picture of Obama looking with the deer-in-the-headlight eyes at the monitor supposedly of the op taking place, you see a golf shirt under that jacket that they put on him.”

May 1, 2012: A highly decorated former Navy SEAL named Chris Kyle said the following on the record regarding the Osama Bin Laden mission:

“In years to come there is going to be information that will come out that Obama was not the man who made the call. He can say he did and the people who really know what happened are inside the Pentagon, are in the military and the military isn’t allowed to speak out against the commander- in-chief.”

August 20, 2012: The UK’s Daily Mail reported they’d seen an advance copy of a new book by journalist Rich Miniter called Leading from Behind: The Reluctant President and the Advisors Who Decide for Him, in which Miniter, who has worked for the Wall Street Journal, the Washington Times and London’s Sunday Times, cites an anonymous source within Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC) revealing that in January, February and March of 2011, Valerie Jarrett talked President Obama into canceling three separate missions to kill bin Laden.

Everything Miniter says backs up White House Insider’s story and even expands it with more details.

According to his source,

Clinton, Panetta, Gates and Petraeus were the driving forces behind getting the successful May 2011 raid under way over Jarrett’s objections and Obama’s indecision.

Despite Obama’s and Biden’s public claims to have made getting bin Laden a TOP PRIORITY from the very first day of his administration, Obama was actually ‘studiously undecided’ about whether to kill the mastermind of 9/11, refusing “to weigh in or commit himself on even small matters related to a possible strike on bin Laden.”

Jarrett’s opposition was totally political. She worried about a backlash against the president if the operation failed, or even if it succeeded. She repeatedly reminded everyone that Obama had campaigned on the alleged “intelligence failures” of the Bush years and that there was no need to hand their political rivals a set of intelligence failures of their own.

Clinton used her weekly meetings to finally convince Obama of the political dangers of failing to act, but still Obama dithered, trying to again call the raid off the day before. The White House later said that “poor weather conditions” had prompted this final stalling tactic, but weather reports are public and prove conditions were ideal. It was just Obama getting his panties in a pucker.

October 11, 2012: A distinguished military analyst reported that a senior intelligence community source has leaked to him that President Obama did not even know of the raid in Abbottabad to kill Osama bin Laden on May 1, 2011, until after the helicopters with SEAL Team Six had crossed into Pakistani airspace.

The president was notified at the golf course and called back to the White House, which is why he appeared so calm at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner the night before and then went golfing as the mission was getting underway.

According to this source,

Director of Central Intelligence Leon Panetta was the key player who organized and supported this daring raid. He signed the “execute orders” with only a few people aware: Secretary of State Hilary Clinton, Secretary of Defense Robert Gates, Adm. Bill Mullen and Gen. David Petraeus.

The White House was closed out of the decision because the president, through Valarie Jarrett, had turned down two or three other earlier proposals. The deputy of central intelligence and his covert planning team were extremely frustrated at all the denials and saw the opportunity to get Osama bin Laden slipping away.

The source reports the decision to leak this information is due to the “boiling point” frustration within the State Department, the Department of Defense and the CIA, over the actions and cover-ups of the president and his administration hierarchy following the Libyan debacle in which our Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other brave and dedicated Americans were murdered by an al-Qaida affiliate.

Their frustration is understandable, since they knew that Al Qaeda was rebuilding in Libya and that a 9/11 anniversary attack was a serious threat. While they were not certain immediately after the attack exactly who was behind it, they were most certainly not telling the White House the thing was some spontaneous “OMG YouTube” demonstration that got out of hand.

October 11, 2012: During his debate with Paul Ryan, Vice President Biden AGAIN threw the intelligence community under Obama’s famous blame bus, saying the phony YouTube video excuse the White House had used for NINE DAYS after the Benghazi attack was “what we were told by the intelligence community. The intelligence community told us that. As they learned more facts about exactly what happened, they changed their assessment.”
