Obama Stalled Repeatedly on No-Brainer “Gutsy Call”

Maybe the no-brainer decision to allow his betters to kill Osama bin Laden after W’s policies had allowed them to track him down was gutsy on Obama’s part after all. True, 999 out of any random 1,000 Americans would have made the same decision in a heartbeat, and without lawyerly wording setting up Admiral William McRaven to take the fall if something went wrong. But it obviously wasn’t easy for Barry to go against the wishes of his teleprompter programmer Valerie Jarrett:

In ”Leading From Behind: The Reluctant President and the Advisors Who Decide for Him,“ Richard Miniter writes that Obama canceled the “kill” mission in January 2011, again in February, and a third time in March. Obama’s close adviser Valerie Jarrett persuaded him to hold off each time, according to the book.

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 also 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.

What a catastrophic farce this presidency has been. If reality ever pops their bubbles of smug self-delusion, liberals will cringe with shame.

If desperate Newsreek were to resort to honesty.

    Do you think you could get away with using a weapon, and threats, to stop people from voting? Apparently, if you’re a radical black anarchist you can.

    Leon Panetta was directing the operation with both his own CIA operatives, as well as direct contacts with military — both entities were reporting to Panetta only at this point, and not the President of the United States. — The operation was at this time effectively unknown to President Barack Obama or Valerie Jarrett and it remained that way until AFTER it had already been initiated. President Obama was literally pulled from a golf outing and escorted back to the White House to be informed of the mission. Upon his arrival there was a briefing held which included Bill Daley, John Brennan, and a high ranking member of the military. When Obama emerged from the briefing, he was described as looking “very confused and uncertain.” The president was then placed in the situation room where several of the players in this event had already been watching the operation unfold. … The now famous photo released shows the particulars of that room and its occupants. What that photo does not communicate directly is that the military personnel present in that room during the operation unfolding, deferred to either Hillary Clinton or Robert Gates. The president’s role was minimal, including their acknowledging of his presence in the room.

    The problems are that SOCIOPATHS have no shame or remorse.

    Uncle Pinko,

    Excellent rebuttal (sarcasm). That was everything we have come to expect of you. The only thing you let out is “I know you are, but what am I?”

    I’ve come to the conclusion, after many years of thought, that a healthy society needs men: that is to say, hairy, sweaty, loud, opinionated, decisive men. As much as I find them at times annoying, they are an absolute necessity. Feminists emasculate men at their own peril. It’s the biblical version of the foolish women “tearing down their house with their own hands.” Obama, needless to say, is not one of these men.

  11. Geeknerd says:

    Give the Prez a pass on this. After all, it was a ‘difficult decision” for a liberal…

    …like the decision to have an abortion.

    Uncle Stinko
    Why so up in arms over this.
    You know, the only place the “gutsy call” rhetoric ever worked was in your empty cobweb addled mind
    Voters are NOT lining up already to vote lightworker Generalissim O over this

    Here libs I will help you out a bit.
    Romney never gave his approval for the mission that took out the person for which liberal commentators mix up the name of the prez with that of a terr.

    While everybody is busy looking into the history and background of the Muslim-in-Chief, has anyone bothered checking into the background of “the real president”, Valerie Jarrett? Hmm…? Does Iran have a mole in the Oval Office?

    Is she the reason we haven’t vaporized Iran for the tens-of-thousands of Americans they’ve killed via their terrorist networks? Is she why the Marxist-in-Chief won’t allow the Israelis to do it?

    Funny…this goes right along with what I posted the other day about the Karbala movie, which is a call to war story about Imam Hussein b., an Islamic hero written about in the Koran. Hussein b. is revered for ousting a ruler who is accused of not following Muhammad’s teachings. Hussein b. spends most of his time in the tent with the women and children, while sending others out to do battle, but he is given credit for the victory. Muslim women are stronly encouraged to read and learn about Hussein b.

    Not only is the hero of the movie one who Muslims compare to Obama, but there is a heroine in the story. The Heroine of Karbala is Hussein b.’s Holy Sister. Muslim women are encouraged to read and learn about her particularly. Valerie Jarrett would fit nicely into this story as the heroine.

    Here is what I posted the other day:

    I cannot understand why any Jew would vote for someone named Barack “Hussein” Obama. There is a reason why it was important for Obama to revert back to that name after it had been legally changed to Barry Soetoro.

    The “Hussein” part is extremely important and it caused the Muslims to help get him elected. Here’s why:

    The Muslims believe in a myth from the Koran about a prophet named Imam Hussein b., who was the grandson of Muhammad. They say that Imam Hussien b.’s martyrdom was prophesied in the Old Testament of the Bible. They say he and Jesus will lead a battle to overthrow an evil ruler of what is modern day Iraq and he will be killed in the uprising. Hussein will die of his injuries, but only after consoling the women and children in the tent.

    There is a popular movie about this. You may not have heard about the Imam Hussein Karbala movie, but the Muslims have. Many believe that Obama is going to save them and help them destroy the Jews.”

    Obama is a pussy, except when he is instituting some Bolshevik horror, and then his balls grow large. The way he’s treated Arizona should have gotten him impeached.
