Exclusive: Obama 'cancelled missions to kill bin Laden THREE TIMES after getting cold feet
Dailty Mail ^ | 8/20/12 | Toby Harnden

Barack Obama cancelled three operations to kill Osama bin Laden before finally going ahead with the mission at the insistence of Hillary Clinton, according to a new book.

The explosive allegation is contained in an expose by journalist Rich Miniter, who argues that the White House’s carefully-crafted narrative of Obama as a decisive leader who dispatched the al-Qaeda leader despite the doubts of advisers is a myth.

Leading from Behind: The Reluctant President and the Advisors Who Decide for Him will be published on Tuesday. Excerpts have been viewed by Mail Online.

Yeah, but, but, but... Romney would have probably cancelled FOUR times. Yeah, that’s the ticket.

What an unbelievably worhless and gutless POS!

That’s nothing. Jimmy Carter aborted the Iran Hostage Rescue mission eight times.

Did Hillary remind Obama of the number of times BJ Clinton had an opportunity to get OBL — and didn’t?

not new info(cue Valerie Jarrett) ......and MSM probably wont run with it, again.

Great negative ad, though:

"Obama got the 3:00 a.m. call... and handed the phone to Hillary."

I carried a list for many years called: "What a Leader Does" On that list was:

"Makes tough decisions" -- Making no decisions is worse then making bad decisions, as a leader can gain respect for accepting responsibility for decisions made that result in a negative impact.

(The list also said a leader has to make more decisions right, then those made wrong)

In fairness, he might ought to have canceled it a ninth. Eagle Claw didn’t go all that well.

‘Obama feared taking responsibility for a risky raid that might go tragically wrong.’

C O W A R D

It's the reason he is more virorous on domestic issues, and social changes.... that is the arena he knows (if it can be said he actually KNOWS anything).

Failure on those issues wouldn't be so bad because there are a lot of fingerprints on any type of domestic and social plans. He would need to assume TOTAL responsibility on that kind of failure.

Foreign policy? He is afraid of his own shadow. "O's" administration shows the most profound inertia.

This guy is such a sissy flake!!

at the insistence of Hillary Clinton

This is all coming from the Clintoonians. They're sabotaging the Zero's reelection. Arkancidal payback for 2008. LOL & pass the popcorn.

Too funny for mere words, and steeped in irony, too!

Consider that when Obama finally got the balls to order Ben Laden’s death, it turned out the balls involved belonged to the HillaBeast.

And let’s not forget:

Obama didn’t kill Bin Laden. Someone else made that happen!
