Hillary Stepped in After Obama Cancelled bin Laden Mission Three Times

We know that there's an empty suit in the White House that's surrounded by liberal extremists, but we didn't know how deep their reach was when it came to national security. Senior advisor Valerie Jarrett is Obama's surrogate mother; no decision is made without her approval. She was the reason Obama cancelled the mission to kill Osama bin Laden three times, until Hillary Clinton and top defense officials stepped in. Jarrett is obsessed with power and control, meaning political fallout drives her every decision at the country's peril.
At the end of the July we reported how Jarrett runs the White House and had the final say when cancelling the missions to kill Osama bin Laden. This comes from an explosive new book, Leading From Behind: The Reluctant President and the Advisors Who Decide for Him by Rich Miniter. Basically, the premise of the book is that President Obama is clueless and indecisive, much like his days as an Illinois State Senator voting present and refusing to take a stance.
Here's some additional information from Mail Online:
The killing of bin Laden is at the centre of Obama’s re-election campaign and is likely to be highlighted yet again by his aides on the eleventh anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks next month. Obama has already come under fire from former SEALs for trumpeting his role in the raid.
Until now, no one has claimed that he was reluctant even to launch it.
Miniter portrays Clinton as the main force behind killing bin Laden and contends that the prevaricating Obama has been in thrall to a number of dominant women – Clinton, top adviser Valerie Jarrett and his wife Michelle.
It was Jarrett, a long-time Chicago ally, he reports, who urged Obama to cancel the first three operations to kill bin Laden.
Miniter writes that Clinton’s alliances with Leon Panetta, then CIA director and now Pentagon chief, and David Petraeus, then head of US and Nato forces in Afghanistan and now at the helm at the CIA, were critical in bringing bin Laden to justice.
At the start of his presidency, Miniter writes, Obama was ‘studiously undecided’ about whether to kill the mastermind of 9/11.
‘He refused to weigh in or commit himself on even small matters related to a possible strike on bin Laden.’
He continues: ‘Obama was often disengaged as the bin Laden operation took shape; he left critical decisions to the then-CIA Director Leon Panetta, then-Secretary of Defence Robert Gates and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
‘Obama feared taking responsibility for a risky raid that might go tragically wrong.’
Initially, Miniter writes, Obama deferred to Jarrett over whether to go after bin Laden.
‘Jarrett opposed the idea. She worried about a backlash against the president if the operation failed, or even if it succeeded. Clinton privately fumed about Jarrett’s relentless presence and her injection of political considerations at every turn.
‘Throughout 2009 Obama demanded more and more certainty about U.S. intelligence concerning bin Laden. Jarrett repeatedly reminded Obama and other executive-branch officials that the president had campaigned on the “intelligence failures” of the Bush years.
This is our Dear Leader: utterly clueless and hesitant to take a stand when protecting America. Ramming Obamacare into law was apparently more important than deciding whether or not killing Osama bin Laden was important.
