    Gutsy Tweet of the Day

    Gutsy Tweet of the Day

    It relates to this story:

    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.

    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.

    Many of Obama’s advisers were against the mission: Intelligence wasn’t sure bin Laden was in the compound, there was a risk of Americans getting killed or caught by the Pakistanis.

    Obama gave the order to get bin Laden. The mission was successful.

    Speaking of leading from behind and attempting to self-aggrandize. I finally got around to watching a DVD of “Act of Valor”. Before it started, there was some nattering by Tom Hanks (Band of Bros credentials), and then a nauseating commercial by FLOTUS. So I was prepared for the worst, but pleasantly surprised. The movie itself didn’t refer to the (or “a”) president at all, and to “the State Department” in only one line. It was pretty decent action movie, and gave a good idea of why there is a “war on terror”. I can see why the media critics didn’t like it so much and went out of their way to call it propaganda and diss the “soldiers'” acting. I’m still peeved about the security breaches, but the movie is worth watching.
