Obama’s poll numbers were dropping. To help prop him up, the Administration put together the “I killed Osama” scam for Obama. That is why there are no pictures, no body, and why Obama had to be called off the golf course. Obama’s handlers didn't want him to know the plan - so he wouldn't screw things up.
Don’t forget that Trump had forced Obama to release a birth certificate on April 27th and computer experts all over the country were coming to the same conclusion after analyzing it the moment it was released on the White House website.........it was a forged document created on a computer. The White House was feeling the heat. They needed a diversion fast.
