White House Insider: Obama Hesitated – Panetta Issued Order to Kill Osama Bin Laden

This is from “Red State”,  and they somewhat disclaim the following as they don’t know who the author of this article is.  This is what they say.   (This comes across as something from Web Griffin, but Truth is stranger than fiction)(dab)

I don’t stand by what follows because I don’t know the author
or the website
. It also falls into the “too good to check” category.

But read and decide for yourself which has a greater ring of truth:

the cool, analytical Obama of the developing White House hagiography (or to quote the notorious catchfart Howard Fineman, “President Barack Obama just proved himself — vividly, in almost Biblical terms — to be an effective commander-in-chief of the armed forces of the United States”)?

or this story describing the indecisive, goofy wuss whom we’ve come to know over the previous painful 29



Some folks say that Conservatives refuse to give Obama any Credit at all.   I want to say that I give him credit
for his “Show Qualities” and speaking ability, and for accomplishing what his
administration and the Brave Service Men and Women accomplished in Osama’s demise. 

BUT,,  there will be an election next year that could place him back in office for another 4 years.  We Americans owe it to ourselves, our children, our Grandchildren to closely exam Obama the Man.   Is he really, to quote the above, the cool, analytical Obama of the developing White House hagiography (or to quote the notorious catchfart Howard Fineman, “President Barack Obama just proved himself — vividly, in almost Biblical terms — to be an effective commander-in-chief of the armed forces of the United States”)? 

(If this is truly the case, I will gladly take my hat off to him and give him credit that he deserves)

or this story describing the indecisive, goofy wuss whom we’ve come to know over the previous painful 29 months? 


One thing I have learned over the past 3 years is that, “Don’t take literally to heart what Obama says, but look
to his minions and look to what and how he actually does business.” 

 It is NOT the Same! 


After watching Panetta on TV yesterday, I feel this story has a high likelihood of being true.  Do we owe Obama for the Executive Decisions that brough Osama's Demise,,,  or do we really owe that to Panetta and Clinton?   You Decide!   (DAB)

Author Unknown…  (White House Insider)


“What Valerie Jarrett, and the president, did not know is that Leon Panetta had
already initiated a program that reported to him –and only him, involving a
covert on the ground attack against the compound."

Note: This update comes some 24 hours after our longtime Washington D.C. Insider first outlined
shocking details of an Obama administration having been “overruled” by senior
military and intelligence officials leading up to the successful attack against
terrorist Osama Bin Laden. What follows is further clarification of Insider’s
insights surrounding that event.

Q: You stated that President Obama was “overruled”
by military/intelligence officials regarding the decision to send in military
specialists into the Osama Bin Laden compound. Was that accurate?

A: I was told – in these exact terms, “we overruled him.” (Obama) I have
since followed up and received further details on exactly what that meant, as
well as the specifics of how Leon Panetta worked around the president’s
“persistent hesitation to act.” There appears NOT to have been an outright
overruling of any specific position by President Obama, simply because there
was no specific position from the president to do so. President Obama was, in
this case, as in all others, working as an absentee president.

I was correct in stating there had been a push to invade the compound for several weeks if not months, primarily led by Leon Panetta, Hillary Clinton, Robert Gates, David Petraeus, and Jim Clapper. The primary opposition to this plan
originated from Valerie Jarrett, and it was her opposition that was enough to create uncertainty within President Obama
. Obama would meet with various components of the pro-invasion faction, almost always with Jarrett present, and then often fail to indicate his position. This situation continued for some time, though the division between Jarrett/Obama and the rest intensified more recently, most notably from Hillary Clinton. She was livid over the president’s failure to act, and her office began a campaign of anonymous leaks to the media
indicating such

As for Jarrett, her concern rested on two primary fronts.

One, that the military action could fail and harm the president’s already weakened standing with both the American public and the world.

Second, that the attack would be viewed as an act of aggression against Muslims, and further destabilize conditions in the Middle East.

Q: What changed the president’s position and
enabled the attack against Osama Bin Laden to proceed?

A: Nothing changed with the president’s opinion – he continued to avoid having one. Every
time military and intelligence officials appeared to make progress in forming a
position, Jarrett would intervene and the stalling would begin again. Hillary started the ball really
rolling as far as pressuring Obama began, but it was Panetta and Petraeus who
ultimately pushed Obama to finally act – sort of. Panetta was receiving
significant reports from both his direct CIA sources, as well as Petraeus-originating Intel. Petraeus was
threatening to act on his own via a bombing attack. Panetta reported back to
the president that a bombing of the compound would result in successful killing
of Osama Bin Laden, and little risk to American lives.

Initially, as he had done before, the president indicated a willingness to act. But once again,
Jarrett intervened, convincing the president that innocent Pakistani lives
could be lost in such a bombing attack, and Obama would be left attempting to
explain Panetta’s failed policy. Again Obama hesitated – this time openly
delaying further meetings to discuss the issue with Panetta. A brief meeting
was held at this time with other officials, including Secretary Gates and
members of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, but Gates, like Panetta, was unable to
push the president to act. It was at this time that Gates indicated to certain
Pentagon officials that he may resign earlier than originally indicated – he was that frustrated. Both Panetta and
Clinton convinced him to stay on and see the operation through.

What happened from there is what was described by me as a “masterful manipulation”
by Leon Panetta
. Panetta indicated to Obama that leaks regarding knowledge of Osama Bin Laden’s location were certain to get out sooner rather than later, and action must be taken by the
administration or the public backlash to the president’s inaction would be
“…significant to the point of political debilitation.” It was at that time that
Obama stated an on-ground campaign would be far more acceptable to him than a bombing
raid. This was intended as a stalling tactic, and it had originated from
Jarrett. Such a campaign would take both time, and present a far greater risk of failure.

The president had been instructed by Jarrett to inform Mr., Panetta that he would have sole
discretion to act against the Osama Bin Laden compound. Jarrett believed this
would further delay Panetta from acting, as the responsibility for failure
would then fall almost entirely on him. What Valerie Jarrett, and the
president, did not know is that Leon Panetta had already initiated a program that reported to him –and
only him, involving a covert on the ground attack against the compound.
Basically, the whole damn operation was already ready to go – including the
specific team support Intel necessary to engage the enemy within hours of being
given notice. Panetta then made plans to proceed with an on-ground assault.

This information reached either Hillary Clinton or Robert Gates first (likely via military contacts
directly associated with the impending mission) who then informed the other.
Those two then met with Panetta, who informed each of them he had been given
the authority by the president to proceed with a mission if the opportunity
presented itself. Both Gates and Clinton warned Panetta of the implications of
that authority – namely he was possibly being made into a scapegoat. Panetta
admitted that possibility, but felt the opportunity to get Bin Laden outweighed
that risk. During that meeting, Hillary Clinton was first to pledge her full support
for Panetta, indicating she would defend him if necessary. Similar support was
then followed by Gates.

The following day, and with Panetta’s permission, Clinton met in private with Bill Daley and urged him to get the president’s full and open approval of the Panetta plan. Daley agreed such approval would be
of great benefit to the action, and instructed Clinton to delay proceeding
until he had secured that approval. Daley contacted Clinton within hours of
their meeting indicating Jarrett refused to allow the president to
give that approval

Daley then informed Clinton that he too would fully support Panetta in his actions, even if it meant disclosing the
president’s indecision to the American public should that action fail to produce a successful conclusion. Clinton took that message back to Panetta and the CIA director initiated the 48 hour engagement order. At this point, the
President of the United States was not informed of the engagement order – it did not originate from him, and for several hours after the order had been given and the special ops forces were preparing for action into Pakistan from
their position in Afghanistan, Daley successfully kept Obama and Jarrett insulated from that order.

"What Valerie Jarrett, and the president, did not know is that Leon Panetta had
already initiated a program that reported to him –and only him, involving a
covert on the ground attack against the compound."

This insulation ended at some point with an abort order that I believe originated from Valerie Jarrett’s office, and was then followed up by President Obama. This abort order was later explained as a delay
due to weather conditions, but the actual conditions at that time would have
been acceptable for the mission. A storm system had been in the area earlier,
but was no longer an issue. Check the data yourself to confirm. Jarrett, having
been caught off guard, was now scrambling to determine who had initiated the
plan. She was furious, repeating the acronym “CoC” and saying it was not being

This is where Bill Daley intervened directly. The particulars of that
intervention are not clear to me beyond knowing he did meet with Jarrett in his
office and following that meeting, Valerie Jarrett was not seen in the West
Wing for some time, and apparently no longer offered up any resistance to the
Osama Bin Laden mission. What did follow from there was one or more brief
meetings between Bill Daley, Hillary Clinton, a representative from Robert Gates’
office, a representative from Leon Panetta’s office, and a representative from
Jim Clapper’s office. I have to assume that these meetings were in essence,
detailing the move to proceed with the operation against the Osama Bin Laden

I have been told by more than one source that Leon Panetta was
directing the operation with both his own CIA operatives, as well as direct
contacts with military – both entities were reporting to Panetta only at this point, and not the President
of the United States
. There was not going to be another delay as had
happened 24 hour earlier. The operation was at this time effectively unknown to
President Barack Obama or Valerie Jarrett and it remained that way until AFTER
it had already been initiated. President Obama was literally pulled from a golf
outing and escorted back to the White House to be informed of the mission. Upon
his arrival there was a briefing held which included Bill Daley, John Brennan,
and a high ranking member of the military. When Obama emerged from the
briefing, he was described as looking “very confused and uncertain.”

The president was then placed in the situation room where several of the players in
this event had already been watching the operation unfold. Another interesting
tidbit regarding this is that the Vice President was already “up to speed” on
the operation. A source indicated they believe Hillary Clinton had personally
made certain the Vice President was made aware of that day’s events before the
president was. The now famous photo released shows the particulars of that of
that room and its occupants. What that photo does not communicate directly is
that the military personnel present in that room during the operation unfolding, deferred to either Hillary Clinton
or Robert Gates. The president’s role was minimal, including their acknowledging of his presence in the room.

At the conclusion of the mission, after it had been repeatedly confirmed a success, President Obama was once again briefed behind closed doors. The only ones who went in that room besides the president were Bill Daley. John Brennan, and a third individual whose identity remains unknown to me. When leaving this
briefing, the president came out of it “…much more confident. Much more certain
of himself.” He was also carrying papers in his hand that quite possibly was
the address to the nation given later that evening on the Bin Laden mission.
The president did not have those papers with him prior to that briefing. The
president then returned to the war room, where by this time, Leon Panetta had
personally arrived and was receiving congratulations from all who were present.

In my initial communication to you of these events I described what unfolded as a temporary Coup initiated by high ranking intelligence and military officials. I stand by that term. These figures worked around the uncertainty of President Obama and the repeated resistance of Valerie Jarrett. If they had not been willing to do so, I am certain Osama Bin Laden would still be alive today. There will be no punishment to those who
acted outside the authority of the president’s office.

The president cannot afford to admit such a fact.

What will be most interesting from here is to now see what becomes of Valerie Jarrett. One source indicated she is threatening resignation. I find that unlikely given my strong belief she needs the protection afforded her by the Oval Office and its immense powers to delay and eventually terminate investigations back in Chicago, but we shall see.
