Hillary Pushed Obama Into Killing Bin Laden

From Breitbart:

Report: Hillary Talked Obama into Going After Bin Laden

by AWR Hawkins | Tues August 21, 2012

According to a new book, not only did Valerie Jarrett dissuade Obama from going after Osama bin Laden three times prior to the successful mission in May 2011, but the key figure in persuading Obama to authorize the mission was Sec. of State Hillary Clinton.

In "Leading From Behind: The Reluctant President and the Advisers Who Decide for Him," author Richard Miniter claims Sec. Clinton was well aware that "her husband had paid a political price for failing to stop bin Laden before the September 11 attacks," and she "knew Obama’s presidency would be mortally wounded" if he had the chance to kill bin Laden but didn’t take it.

Lest we forget, Hillary is quoted by James B. Stewart in his book, ‘Blood Sport: The President and His Adversaries,’ pg 91, as saying: "If I didn’t kick his (Bill Clinton) ass every day, he wouldn’t be worth anything."

Still, this would tend to undercut other claims that Hillary and Bill wanted Obama to fail, so that she could run this year.

Even with Clinton’s support, Miniter says Obama was basically frozen in place for a time — aware that something needed to be done but still "uneasy" about allowing bin Laden to be taken out. According to Miniter, Obama was still undecided on the mission the very day before it took place.

Miniter’s claims stand in stark contrast to Democrat Sen. Jeanne Shaheen’s contention that Obama "led the mission" that killed bin Laden. Far from leading, it appears Obama had to be pushed, and finally dragged kicking and screaming, just to get authorization for the kill.

Which stands in stark contrast to Obama’s quick decision to kill the American citizen, Anwar al-Awlaki, without even reading him his Miranda rights.

    This shouldn’t surprise anyone. I’ve always felt that the Hildabeast has a bigger willie than Teleprompter Boy.

      From a rather campy western:

      “You best not be strappin’ on, lest you plannin’ on killin’ someone”

      Somehow—means something entirely different in a Hitlery vs. ‘The Won’ contest, does it not?

    That explains the CIA agent who started looking under Bush in 2001 went underground with another group . When he closed in they wanted to move him out and so he went underground met up with other CIA figures a female in charge, and kept it secret as long as they could be sure they had found him, because
    everytime he found Osama bin Laden it was leaked. And he had to plead to Panetta to take Osama bin Laden out for 8 months!

    Imagine the potential of a Hillary’s Road to Damascus conversion. On one side you could get Margaret Thatcher; then again on the other the anti Christ prophesy could come true too.

    Beware of False Prophets!

      Every time I imagine anything involving Hillary, I have to have my brain bleached afterward.

    • GetBackJack says:

      All she did was touch Letterman and he had to have his heart repaired the same day. Don’t forget that.

    The female is deadlier than the….?

  5. Anonymoose says:

    I don’t know which bothers me more…that even Hillary, the Wick Witch had to expend that much effort to convince him, or that the entire decision of taking Obama out or not–which should have been an instant no-brainer–came down to political expediency: “Oh, what will the polls among the liberal foreign demographic think?”
