White House: 'Fabrication' that Obama called off bin Laden raid

By BYRON TAU | 7/30/12 2:47 PM EDT

The White House called a report that President Obama called off the raid on Osama bin Laden three times a "fabrication."

In a new book previewed by the Daily Caller, author Richard Miniter alleges that Obama called off the raid three times at the urging of senior advisor Valerie Jarrett, before finally authorizing the mission.

"That is an utter fabrication. It's seems pretty clear that Mr. Miniter doesn't know what he's talking about," White House spokesman Josh Earnest told reporters Monday.

"Ms. Jarrett, like the vast majority of the president's senior staff was not read in on the operation on the mission against Osama bin Laden," Earnest said.

And as the liberal group Media Matters notes, Miniter's report does not square with other reporting on the timeline of the mission.

Sure. THIS is a fabrication but Obama’s not a Kenyan, he’s not a communist, and he’s not gay. Right.

The White House called a report that President Obama called off the raid on Osama bin Laden three times a "fabrication."

Parsing their usual BS, this means he called it off five times.

Uh-huh, just like it was a ‘fabrication’ the Soetoro Regime didn’t return the Winston Churchill bust to Britain that they did return to Britain.

Is a “fabrication” something along the lines that the regime did “not remove the bust of Churchill from the oval office”?

Suuure....

And he didn’t send Chuchill’s bust back, and he never knew anything about Fast & Furious. Yup.

And the Somalia Yacht shooting of the Pirate Perps...?

Yeah, he ALSO didn’t call that one off —three times. And then have the on-scene SEAL commander order the shot taken anyway. And then claim credit for the success he had NOTHING to do with.

And then later legally TRY those same SEALS for supposedly roughing up a prisoner.

He didn’t do ANY of that.

And he’s not a bisexual. AND he never smoked crack with Larry in that limo.

AND he’s not a socialist.

So, he authorized the mission....before he authorized the mission?

Was he leaning on the Churchill bust in the Oval office when these alleged authorizations allegedly took place?

If this story had ‘legs’, Newsweek might have to redo that cover — The Wimp Factor: Obama didn’t want to get Osama.

Zippy was called in from the golf course to "watch" it happen.

The number of different reasons the state run media (media matters) and the white hut bring up Osama is mind boggling.

Ms. Jarrett, like the vast majority of the president’s senior staff was not read in on the operation on the mission against Osama bin Laden,” Earnest said.

I’m reading “The Amateur” right now. I don’t believe for a minute that Valerie Jarrett doesn’t know everything that goes on in the White House. Another blatant lie by this administration. Uh, where is that bust of Winston Churchill again? Bunch of dumbasses.

Sorry, Obama. There’s a price to pay for being a liar—nobody believes anything you say.

This is one of the main reasons lying is not smart. Tell Bill Ayers, David Axelrod and Eric Holder when you get a chance.

There’s actually a web site that we’re not allowed to quote here that had an anonymous ‘source’ report back at the time that Val killed multiple efforts and so for this last one that was a success she was purposely kept out of the loop (and Barry was only pulled in at the last minute). FWIW.

It’s no wonder then that The Messiah looked so dejected in that group photo. He was probably thinking the whole time how am I going to square this with Val?

What a bunch of hooey! The bozo doesn’t make a trip to the biffy unless he has her permission.

That wasn’t all senior staff in the picture taken the night of the raid in Pakistan and I believe she was in the room... Oh! They’re talking about advance info. I see! Huh Huh!

No wonder these people hate us. We don’t believe their lies!

If that is true, I’m sure she tore some a$$ up when she found out. Just ask Rahm Emmanuel and Bill Daley. They can’t take a dump anymore she chewed their A$$es so bad!
