Book bombshell: Obama canceled Bin Laden ‘kill’ raid three times at Jarrett’s urging
The Daily Caller ^ | 07/29/2012 | David Martosko

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.

It does not say why Jarrett advised against it. What were her reasons?

Ummm, I don’t remember Jarrett being an elected official. I guess Obama administration just following orders. Dear God but I want these people gone in November.

Somehow I missed that Valerie Jarrett was born and raised in Iran. If that doesn’t make one’s blood run cold, I don’t know what will.

I’m not a Romney fan, butt,,,, I want obama out! I want his cabinet out! I want his advisors out! I want his czars out! I want his political appointees out!. I’d vote for a random name in a phone book over him. I want him gone. I’m not a Romney fan, but I WILL pull the lever for him. I’m no longer a Republican. I’m an Independent Conservative.

Rasputin is a good analogy. Jarrett isn’t awesomely smart or educated, but both Obamas listen to her. It seems very odd that a local Chicago operative is consulted on military matters, but Rasputin was a peculiar choice of confidante for the Tsar and Tsarina.

She grew up in Iran. Speaks fluent Farsi, as does Obozo. You tell me.

Richard Miniter’s account of this lines up almost exactly with what was reported over a year ago in The Ulterman Report’s White House Insider posting.

The Lizard Queen holds far too much power. What hold does she have over the Bamster?

Jarrett has leadership ability, while Obama does not.

Jarrett and BHO speak Farsi? Could you provide a source to confirm this?
