Joe Biden Admits He Advised President Obama Not To Carry Out Bin Laden Raid video by Josh Feldman | 11:22 pm, January 27th, 2012 » 21 comments
Vice President Joe Biden spoke to a conference of House Democrats in Maryland today, and in discussing the SEAL Team raid that successfully took out Osama bin Laden, he admitted that he advised President Obama not to carry out the mission because we have to do more things to see if hes there. The vice president gave an insider account of the internal discussions in the White House before the order was officially carried out.
Biden praised the president for having a backbone like ramrod before giving a point-by-point recollection of everything that happened in the final day before Obama gave the SEAL team its orders.
The President, he went around the table with all the senior people including the Chiefs of Staff. He said, I have to make this decision what is your opinion. He started with the National Security adviser, the Secretary of State and he ended with me. Every single person in that room hedged their bet, except Leon Panetta. Leon said GO. Everyone else said 49, 51, this
It got to me. Joe what do you think? I said You know I didnt know we have so many economists around the table. We owe the man a direct answer. Mr. President my suggestion is dont go. We have to do two more things to see if hes there.
Biden said that Obama left that night promising to make a decision, and the next morning returned to the White House and made the order official.

If false, it ALSO shows Biden's level of idiocy.
So was this after Slow Joe told President Bush that “Look behind you—no one’s following you!”?
As with others, I don’t buy this either. There have been so many stories out of the Obama Admin, I believe they are covering up something major - such as what one of the early leaks said- Obama was basically backed into a corner. Look at his expression in the Sit Room- he looked ticked off.
I can’t get that out of my mind, either. Osama supposedly killed, but no pictures? Burial at sea, with no body for evidence? Most/all of the seal team killed in an “accident” only weeks later? Was there a DNA laboratory on that ship? and more?????
My first thoughts were the same
Was he even in the room when the decision was made? I thought he was golfing.
I don’t believe those were the SEAL team members on the Osama raid that were killed shortly afterward.
The only thing worst than an Obama presidency, would be if somehow Biden got the job. He has got to be the most stupid VP in modern history.
Uncle Joe may have been right...What evidence do you have that Bin Laden was there???
Biden will say anything because he wants to keep his job.
Biden is 0's insurance policy. Nobody wants to see him take the reins. If he'd gone with Hillary he would have needed a taster, and triple the Secret Service squad.
I don’t believe you Plugs.
