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

Posted on 07/29/2012 9:05:32 PM PDT by Hotlanta Mike

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?

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.

If you Google Valerie Jarrett and the Muslim Brotherhood a few things pop up.

And she was born in Iran to American parents. Maybe some other sympathies there, like Barack Hussein Obama?

According to one source that needs confirmation ... Valerie Jarret's father was on the staff of the Nemazee Hospital in Shiraz, Iran. [Her parents are American.] they were there as part of a government program to send doctors and agricultural specialists to Iran. [As I recall there was a lot of corruption in those days by our government from which Diamond nut company got a lot of favors, but I digress.]

I knew she had something to do with the hospital but didn't know its name. If Nemazee really is the name of the hospital it is curious because Nemazee is also the name of a big Obama campaign donation bundler who is sitting in jail for bilking millions from US banks.

Yeah, but her parents were American. Her great-grandfather, Robert Robinson Taylor, was said to be the first black (African-American) accredited architect in the U.S. and first African-American at MIT. Valerie has quite a pedigree.

Did some research on Valerie the other day and was wondering if her grandfather was related to Michelle Robinson Obama’s family. Might just be a coincidence albeit and intriguing one. The two Robinson families came from different Carolinas.

Valerie is the grand neice of Vernon Jordan. Vernon Jordan IIRC was or perhaps still is the lawyer for Mohammad Hussein Alamoudi. He was the head of Capitol Trust Bank which has offces in NY and in London ; it was a bank under investigation in Britain for laundering money to Osama bin Laden. M. H. Alamoudi succeded Khalid bin Mahfouz t the National Commercial Bank, NCB. The investigtion started because the Saudi King had the bank and bin Mahfouz audited because things were not adding up with pension fund assets; the audit discovered that the bank officials were sending payoffs to OBL, supposedly to bribe OBL not to attack their interests. Some of these transfers were used in a plot to assassinate Egyptian leader Hosni Mubarak in Ethiopia in 1995. In true Democrat fashion the 5 wealthy saudis involved in the money transfers had robbed the Saudi pension fund to make these transfers via the NCB to the terror charities Blessed Relief and Islamic Relief and on to bin Laden.

Of course all this was vigorously denied and the journalists who reported it were mobbed immediately. Which is strange in that stories are reported all the time which are blatantly false yet never recieve any attention from lawyers at all.

Khalid bin mahfouz had been charged way back in 1992 in onntion with tax fraud and was involved with the BCCI embezzlement scandal, into which Bank oof america was drawn in it eagerness to get a stake in the ME. BCCI collapsed because it was allocating huge loans that weren't backed, not unlike the more recent mortgage scandals.

Now, Jordan also worked for the very same law firm that reprisented the owner Salah Idriss [sp?] of the "aspirin fatry" that got bombed in Sudan though as far as I can tell he was not directly involved in that case.

But Jordan was also the lawyer for the infamous terror charity Holy Land Foundation.

If this is news to any of you Freepers - then shame on you.

scroll down to look at photo. Does that look like he was in charge - like the CIC?
They had to get Valerie out of the WH and then grab him off the golf course and sit him in the corner - neither he nor biden could get out of that room. He was overridden.

He was given a speech, already prepared, to give to the people - that gave him full credit - s ‘gutsy’ guy. This was to keep him in line, which it did - playing to his narcissism. Even so, if you remember, he was a FULL HOUR late in giving the speech - the networks had fun filling the time! That was comical.

and BTW - if you don't know that Valerie is running the WH, and what her background is - then shame on you again. The MSlimeMedia wont’ tell us - but we KNOW THAT. But we have the Internet at our fingertips.

I have posted that piece over and over on FR. No one seemed interested then either.

suggestion: save this site and USE IT.

Is Valerie “O’s” handler?

http://www.exposeobama.com/2009/09/09/valerie-jarrett-and-the-communists-of-chicago/

and yes, she was born in Iran. But grew up in the Communist Group in Chicago - Frank Davis, long time friend of “O’s” grandparents and little Barry's mentor, was a top commie operator, also connected with the Chicago group.

Connect the dots.

And any of you who will take the chance that these people stay in power rather thatn vote for Romney - You're part of the problem.

Flame away. I'm off to bed.

BLESSED RELIEF (BRF) aka Muwafaq Foundation In addition to some 3 million of Saudi pension funds redirected from NCB to Blessed Relief AKA the Muwafaq Foundation, which came up during the investigation of the 1998 US embassy bombings in Africa and were confirmed by the Saudi audit, the United Nations also gave just under one and a half million to that foundation's charity activities in Sudan.

The Mahfouz family was invested in the US pharma company Hybridon.

The Blessed Relief/Muwafaq charity roots just happen to go right back to Chicago.

Coincidence, I'm sure.

And all this came to light before Obama was a national name.

Jarrett is extremely smart (look at her business background), and well educated (look at her record). She is a product of the 1930/40’s black marxist grouping in Chicago, with some old White Communist Party USA members thrown in a little later.

Never underestimate this woman. That would be a fatal mistake for patriotic Americans.

She is like Communist Cheddi Jagan’s wife in Guyana (she was an American marxist), and like the influential wives of other marxist dictators in Africa and Greece.

The power behind the throne, so to speak.

Only David Axelrod, the son of a leftist mother who was mentored by two old-line CPUSA members or sympathizers, one being a Soviet agent of influence (David S. Canter), has as much influence on Obama as Jarrett.

Put them together and they are the Red Typhoid Marys of the Obama Administration, with Antia “I like Mao” Dunn and Vann Jones in the second tier.

Remember, it was Jarrett who had been watching avowed marxist revolutionary Van Jones for years before she got him into the White House as the “Climate Czar”.

That story, in and of itself, explains how Democratic Party marxists bring in other marxists to the mainstream of politics.

We should rename the White House, the “Red House”.

If she were born in Iran and if Iran has the same birthright citizenship that the US has, then she is also an Iranian.

Jarrett has influence, and I do not underestimate that influence, but much of her advice is bad and does not work out the way it was supposed to go.

Advising against the bin Laden raid is just one example: any president would have acted but Jarrett counseled against action. Had word gotten out that Obama passed on getting bin Laden, that would have been political poison.

Allowing her daughter's wedding to become a royal event with a hundred Chicago cops closing off part of her neighborhood is not the act of a mastermind, but of a sloppy ego who doesn't much care who she offends.

By the way, Farsi is the native Persian language. Persia was conquered by the Muzzies. Much of the current Iranian leadership speak Arabic. Muzzies hate much of the Persian element of Iran & Persian descendants hate most Muzzies.

Hence the brutal repression you saw during the last Iranian “elections”.

Most Persian descendants want to be free of the Islamist filth.
