In the official photograph, he looked every inch the commander in chief. Strain etched on his face, Barack Obama watched as the raid to kill Osama bin Laden played out on a television in front of him. According to a new book, however, the President was not nearly that engaged and was actually playing golf until 20 minutes before the operation began in earnest.Only then did he down his clubs and return to the White House to watch what he later trumpeted as a great success of his presidency. A new book claims the official account was

The list, ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Somehow I am not at all surprised by this.
The only thing missing from your montage of photos is the pic of Obama hanging curtains.
Daily Mail is late to the party. Us Freepers knew that the very day.
The article does not say how long Seal Team 6 waited on the tarmac in Afghanistan waiting for the fearless leader to finish his beauty sleep and golf game while deciding to give the green light.
Perhaps when he finally did, he thought his friends in Pakistan already cleared out the compound...
you left out the girl’s bike photo which is certainly special
LOL! He looks like he is cowering down into his jacket.
To me he looks like he just realized he crapped his mudslime underpants.
And him riding the girlie bike in his Mom jeans.
To me he looks like he doesn’t want to be there. Like he’s lost in thought on other pressing matters: “Maybe I should have used a 7 iron on that last hole...”
Yep. He looks scared sh*tless.
the real story?
"Obama Overridden by Military and Intel Officials in Takeout of OBL?"
Live link next post.
He’s intimidated by the military peeps. Look at his body language. Arms crossed.
This jives with him also being very uninvolved with Iraq
Interesting read. Didnt we miss hitting the one-eyed terrorist because some JAG atty didnt like the legal tie-ins because we weren’t 100% sure?
He’s as queer as a three dollar bill. What a first. A mulatto, muslim homo as prez.
I read the article. The account of the raid seems credible to me. What I don’t understand is how the author, a veteran Seal guy, knows what was happening at the White House.
IMHO, the photo looks Photoshopped.
Actually, the look on his face is one of irritation, where he’s thinking “they interrupted my golf game for this?!?”
Still cant get over how all of the seals were taken out after the mission.
“What a first. A mulatto, muslim homo as prez.”
What a first. A mulatto, muslim, homo, communist as prez.
Excellent sleuthing, gaijin. Now you have a pretty complete album of the Pretty Boy Pres.
He probably played golf until he found out the chopper had been destroyed and whatever the real mission was had been abandoned and a cover had to be manufactured.
Any real pictures of Osama, yet? No? Where are the silly Rosie O’Donnells and other leftist conspiracy freaks on this? It has a lot more real questions surrounding it than “steel doesn’t melt” and “an airplane didn’t crash” into the Pentagon crowd has for their silly conspiracies. just sayin..
He never gave the OK! The decision was made without him - actually despite him, by Hillary and Panetta, who ordered the SEAL command to disregard any order to stop the mission by Obama! He and Valerie Jarret had been preventing the mission for close to four months after intel indicated there were Obama members at that location!
The SEALS began to practise the mission in Afghanistan at a mock up of the target right away and apparently were afraid that Obama’s loong delay would allow any targets escape. Or a leak in Afghanistan ruin the mission.
Hillary and Panetta took charge and authorized the mission as soon as the SEALS indicated they were ready.
Obama was dragged inside in his golf outfit to hide all this by having him present - sitting in a corner, not in a command position.
If an interviewed Pakistani neighbor witness (video) is to be believed, they never got a long dead Osama but did get his son. Photos of son’s dead body available but NONE of Osama. Would have been leaked if it existed.
Son’s and father’s DNA would be the same.
I agree. If he had been golfing during the mission, or delaying it until he was done, that would be inexcusable. But if he decided to tell his commanders "Make it so" and then get the hell out of the way, then to me that's just fine.
He looks ashen. Oh no, they are killing my buddy.
The 0 hanging curtains, the photo with the umbrella caught in the gate, the puffball pitch and the faggy helmet on the almost mountain bike are lacking here. I can relate to your moniker. I was born to gaijin in Tokyo in ‘57. I improvised. I adapted. I overcame. Cudo’s to Gunny Tom Highway for that.
Where in the hell do they come up with this? He looked like a guy that was pulled abruptly off of the golf course! He didn't even change his golfing shirt!
To me he looks like it is personal. He is watching someone be killed because of what they have to do with him.
Yes , this is not new news , but still good to see .
He didn’t look like a commander in chief. He looked like an evil fiend haunted by ghosts.
What a flaming POS.
The soldiers were also said to be disappointed that Obama announced Bin Laden's death on TV a few hours later, making their intelligence-gathering futile.
0bungles the Kenyan Klown is the biggest mistake America has ever made.
The third picture is just to easy to comment on.
All the papers and computers were worth a pile of **** because of Obama's narcissistic ego, all that work for what? What a slap in the face not only to ST-6 but all the support and Intel Wonks that could have put a bow on so many AQ operatives.
They say golf but I tend to believe he was playing Nintendo or XBox.
It is interesting that there are a number of differences between this account and others that are out there. For example, I just watched the recent National Geographic special on this topic tonight, and there are numerous significant differences, including the order of events (helicopter crash occurs on ingress in one account, egress in the other).
So I am not sure I believe everything in this story. Nonetheless, one thing that I do find very credible is the comment about the Seal team being disheartened when Odumbo announced the raid, thereby ruining the value of the intel that they gathered. I had this exact thought when he went on TV to announce it, and again when I heard about the 10 hard drives, 120 USB keys, and handwritten journal that they recovered.
If ever there was evidence that Odipwad gives not a rat’s behind for our country or its people, it was that he announced this whole thing instead of waiting a few weeks for us to act on that intel.
