An important look at our president, the leader of the free world.  If you

believe TV and his speech he planned and carried this out himself.

 

Valerie Jarrett by the way is a Special Senior Advisor to the President

and was co-chair of his transition team. They were "friends" in Chicago.

 

 

Subject: White House Insider: Obama
Hesitated - Panetta Issued Order to Kill
Osama Bin Laden
 
 
(From White House Insider)

Q: You stated that President Obama was "overruled"
by
 military/intelligence officials regarding the decision
to send in military
 specialists into the Osama Bin Laden compound. 
Was that accurate?

 A: I was told - in these exact terms, "we
overruled him." (Obama)  I have
 since followed up and received further details on
exactly what that meant,
 as well as the specifics of how Leon Panetta worked
around the president's
 "persistent hesitation to act."  There
appears NOT to have been an
   outright overruling of any specific position by
President Obama, simply because there was no specific position from the
president to do so.
 President Obama was, in this case, as in all others,
working as an
 absentee president. I was correct in stating 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.  Obama would meet with various
components of th
e pro-invasion faction, almost always with Jarrett
present, and then often fail to indicate his position.  This situation
continued for some time, though the division between Jarrett/Obama and the rest
intensified more recently, most notably from Hillary Clinton.  She
was livid over the president's failure to act, and her office began a
campaign of anonymous leaks to the media indicating such.  As for
Jarrett, her concern rested on two primary fronts.  One, that the military
action could fail and harm the president's already weakened standing with both the
American public and the world.  Second, that the attack would be
viewed as an act of aggression against Muslims, and further destabilize
conditions in the Middle East.

Q: What changed the president's position and enabled
the attack against Osama Bin Laden to proceed?

 A:  Nothing changed with the president's opinion - he continued to avoid
having one.  Every time military and intelligence officials appeared to
make progress in forming a position, Jarrett would
intervene and the stalling would begin again.  Hillary started the
ball really rolling as far as pressuring Obama began, but it was Panetta and
Petraeus who ultimately pushed Obama to finally act - sort
of.  Panetta was receiving significant reports from both his direct CIA sources,
as well as Petraeus-originating Intel.  Petraeus was
threatening to act on his own via a bombing attack.  Panetta reported back to
the president that a bombing of the compound would result in successful
killing of Osama Bin Laden, and little risk to American lives. 
Initially, as he had done before, the president indicated a willingness to
act.  But once again, Jarrett intervened, convincing the president that
innocent Pakistani lives could be lost in such a bombing attack, and Obama
would be left attempting to explain Panetta's failed policy.  Again
Obama hesitated - this time openly delaying further meetings to discuss the issue
with Panetta.  A brief meeting was held at this time with other
officials, including Secretary Gates and members of the Joint Chiefs of
Staff, but Gates, like Panet

I am pretty sure there is video of him coming in with his golf shoes on and going right in the situation room, that and his seating location do really collaborate the story don't they?

I don't know there are a lot of tells to muddle over. Reports say the President knew about the raid on the previous Friday. 
Believe me I'm no supporter of this President, but I find it hard to believe that even he would drag his feet on whacking OBL.
If the story above is true, it scares the HELL out of me that we have such an incompetent in charge of our National defense.

If it happened this way, it would fit with Obama's past actions. The one thing that makes me suspicious is the end run around the President to start the operation. I can believe that H. Clinton and Panetta would do something like that, because they have no respect for the Chain of Command, but Gen. Petraus and maybe Gates I don't see violating it. It would be a criminal act for Gen. Petraus to act against the Presidents will.
I'm not defending the President. I just don't want to go down the wrong rabbit hole.

I thought Obama actually carried out the raid himself.  If not, why have the Obama Seal action doll?
 
(borrowed from another forum)
Pull the string and he says:
"I won the Nobel Peace Prize"
"I killed bin Laden"
 
see pic here....
