This might have been Hillary’s exclusive decision, but I can’t imagine Obama was not consulted at some point. Hillary isn’t dumb. She would not want to be out on a limb having to depend upon Obama to provide the only available lifeline!
My guess is she carried out White House policy and can show that it was indeed White House policy.
I agree. They're in a deadly embrace. They both get out of this together, or they will bring each other down. Hillary made the executive decision to get Bin-Laden. Several attempts were nixed by Obama, and the final attempt where Obama finally relented was probably because he told her she would be held responsible if it went wrong. So Obama took the glory from the State Dept. He can't do that again (make her responsible if things go wrong), because Hillary will let the evidence leak that Obama was against getting Bin-Laden and that damages half of Obama's legacy. Obama will be forced to not totally abandon Hillary, lest they both go down.
Whether Odumbo was consulted or not, The State Dept. falls under the executive branch. He is ultimately responsible for the actions and outcomes generated by that department.
That is what is so tragic about Biden claiming that the White House did not know. What else doesn’t the White House know and has it occurred to anybody there just how out of touch with reality this bunch now seems?
