So Much For That Gutsy Call… Obama Canceled Operation to Kill Osama 3 Different Times – Then Waited 16 Hrs to Make Call

So much for that “gutsy call.”


We already knew that it took Barack Obama 16 hours to make the call to go after Bin Laden at his hideout in Pakistan.

But, now we know, it took much longer than that.
Barack Obama canceled the operation to kill Osama bin Laden on three separate occasions, before finally approving the May 2, 2011 Navy SEAL mission.
Israel National News reported:

According to a new book, President Obama canceled operation to kill Osama bin Laden on three separate occasions, due to instructions of aide

At the urging of senior advisor 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 a new book scheduled for release August 21, The Daily Caller (DC) reported.

In “Leading From Behind: The Reluctant President and the Advisors who Decide for Him,” Richard Miniter writes that Obama canceled the mission in January 2011, again in February, and a third time in March.

Valerie Jarrett, a senior advisor and assistant to the president for Public Engagement and Intergovernmental Affairs, reportedly persuaded Obama to hold off each time, the book reveals, according to The DC.

Miniter, a two-time New York Times best-selling author, cites an unnamed source with Joint Special Operations Command who had direct knowledge of the operation and its planning.

Obama administration officials said after the raid that the president had delayed giving the order to kill the arch-terrorist the day before the operation was carried out, in what turned out to be his fourth moment of indecision.

In other words, it took Barack Obama months to make the same decision that a six year-old could make in minutes. Obama’s obviously not quite the hero the media wants to make him out to be. How pathetic.

    People accuse Palin of not being qualified, just what are jarrrets qualifications to be calling the shots? Much like obamas, a negative number.

  • RoadKill

    This isn’t any real shock – everything about Barack Obama screams fraud. Trying to pin his character down is like trying to nail jello to the wall.

  • CV1

    This means that three times he misused the intelligence that eminated from the Bush White House. Maybe, it wasn’t politically prudent in January, February, and March of 2011.

    Obama is always campaigning. He could have wanted to wait until closer to the election.

    Love the picture of Valerie

    Jarret on FOX. She looked like

    A “special needs” kid.

    GOD help us, we have leaders

    That are evil.

    Sarah Palin would have ordered bin Laden secretly captured and secretly taken to secret location for all the Intel he was worth for the rest of his life and never said a word about it …unlike the BallSpikerInChief who didn’t want the beans spilled about Osama’s ties to leftists in the US.

    Valerie Jarrett is pulling all the strings coming from this wh,Obama is just the mouth piece ..

  • owl

    Now this sounds a lot more closer to the truth, doesn’t it?

  • owl

    Anyone else getting the red alert attack page warning? I got it earlier when I tried punching this up from a Lucianne link and now again from this one. I just ignored it but it sure makes me wonder if someone is messing…………

    Jarrett is the most dangerous woman in America……..Her ties to muslim brotherhood…..

    I did not succeed on my own. Someone else helped… my military advisors whom I rarely listen to.

    I flip and then I flopped. I agonized then I cried like a baby. I boot licked and sucked. Finally, my good friend Barney Frank got behind me and gave me a stern wedgie. My backbone slid. But, after reversing the roles I gained entry. I felt released.

    Then, I played games while everyone else did the actual work. I had a blame speech written in case it failed. The NYT had my script and were ready spin. Unfortunately it did not fail.

    It was a terrible experience. So, I put my butt plug in and went to see Barney Frank again.

    I cannot go into details at this time. I will say that my campaign sucks and I may need some more bucking-up from Barney… but, he is married… so it will have to be a threesome. Good day.

    again, nothing new..

    a few of us were posting about it, not to mention Panetta (or the
    admiral in charge of the mission) having been the one to give the
    final order, soon after it supposedly went down..

    but thank you for the post, we desperately need to get the TRUTH
    out there, though in coming so late i don’t think many will care.. :-(

    They were hoping to push the button closer to the election. Never bought the B.S. that it took almost a year for the mission to be planned.

    A Friendship Dating to 1976 Resonates in 2012

    [ That shared experience decades ago led to a warm friendship, little known to outsiders, that is now rich with political intrigue. Mr. Netanyahu, the prime minister of Israel, is making the case for military action against Iran as Mr. Romney, the likely Republican presidential nominee, is attacking the Obama administration for not supporting Mr. Netanyahu more robustly.

    The relationship between Mr. Netanyahu and Mr. Romney — nurtured over meals in Boston, New York and Jerusalem, strengthened by a network of mutual friends and heightened by their conservative ideologies — has resulted in an unusually frank exchange of advice and insights on topics like politics, economics and the Middle East.]
