US Special Forces go after Mullah Omer, Ayman Zawahiri, Seif al-Adel
DEBKAfile ^ | May 8, 2011 | DEBKAfile

Posted on 05/08/2011 8:20:09 PM PDT by Never A Dull Moment

Our Washington sources report that Saturday night, May 7, President Barack Obama gave the Pakistani government, army and intelligence an ultimatum: Cooperate in the capture of the three wanted men or else we shall pump more American soldiers into Pakistan to take up the pursuit with or without your permission.

US intelligence is convinced that Omer, Zawahiri and al-Adal have joined forces and are plotting a revenge attack on America dramatic enough to outdo the psychological impact of the bin Laden killing.

So Obama thinks he pressed a button and "poof" there goes OBL.

So lets press a few more. And it's time to load up on the freeze dried food, extra batteries and ammo.

Prediction: the most unstable and dangerous aspect of this is the Obamas and Jarrett and their cohort. Chaotic divergence possible. Not good.

The success of that mission lies with our Navy Seals and their commanders.

Did I say it didn’t? I said Obama seems to be getting into this business.And he is the CinC who makes the final decision to send them.My hope is that the word cowboy will soon be used by Maureen Dowd to criticize Obama’s willingness to use force.

“US intelligence is convinced that Omer, Zawahiri and al-Adal have joined forces and are plotting a revenge attack on America dramatic enough to outdo the psychological impact of the bin Laden killing.”

That was fast.

I guess the good news here is the track record of Debka, which it hit and miss, and that’s being charitable.

it may be a coincidence, but the Philippine police have arrested two Abusayyaf terrorists in Manila in the last few days.

One was actually working as a security guard in a posh hotel...

you say: “Obama does seem to be getting off on this kill em all let God sort em out stuff.His eyes were glowing on 60 Min tonite when he discussed the raid.My wife compares it to firing a weapon for the first time.No matter what your feelings before, it gives you a rush you don’t want to let go.”
**************
Or is he getting off on the perception of the public that he has, for the first time in his life, acted like an adult who can make a timely decision - other than ‘present.”?

Is HE making these decisions or following intstructions from the adults, who capitalize on his narcissism - he's allowed to take credit and appear the big man.

Who really made the decision on the Abbotabad raid? Who's really running the show?

“Obama Hesitated - Panetta Issued Order to Kill Osama Bin Laden”

Excerpt:
“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. Another interesting tidbit regarding this is that the Vice President was already “up to speed” on the operation. A source indicated they believe Hillary Clinton had personally made certain the Vice President was made aware of that day's events before the president was. The now famous photo released shows the particulars of that 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.”

One picture is worth a thousand words - huddled down in a corner - still in golf clothes - blocked in, no way he's getting away from them again for yet another delay - looking like a whipped little boy, very NOT in control. The adults are in charge.

By propping him up to be the ‘Commander Hero” - they hope to keep power.

Well..... It is a heck of a lot better than the MSM here. I’d believe them before I would CNN, MSNBC, CBS, NBC.....NPR, NPT.... The NYT, LAT, WAPO
and the others.

You don't really believe that, do you? How could this mission have been accomplished without the actions of our fearless leader? He valiantly sacrificed nine holes of golf for the mission. He didn't even have time to change out of his golf clothes into something more Presidential like an open-collar dress shirt with the sleeves rolled up. How could the mission been accomplished without our fearless leader sitting there looking like a little boy who got stuck at the grown-up table at Thanksgiving? I can't imagine how this mission could have possibly been accomplished if not for the courage and resolve of our great warrior President.

BTW, in case your sarcasm meter is out of calibration, there was a bit of sarcasm in the above paragraph.
