President Obama knew of Osama Bin Laden's hideout since the Summer of 2010

Welshtaff 2012/05/20 02:27:28

Retired General Jack Keane, the former Vice Chief of Staff of the Army, says that President Obama knew of Osama Bin Laden's hideout since the Summer of 2010. He refused to act on the intelligence for nine months until May 2011 when OBL was ultimately brought to justice by the NAVY SEALs.

What was the hold up? According to Keane, Obama wanted to be certain that Bin Laden was really in the compound and that he wanted a picture.

The longer we survey the field, the more likely our target would feel they are being watched and ultimately flee.

We do not know how strong the evidence was that pin-pointed Bin Laden to the Pakistan compound in the Summer of 2010. It probably made sense to be a bit more certain but why did it take nine (9) months for Obama to feel certain enough to take him out?

If this information is true, then it takes away the boldness of the decision to get OBL. It also raises the question as to whether or not Obama's decision to get OBL was politically motivated.

    I may be in the complete minority here but I believe OBL was long dead and the whole thing was a production to make Obama look good.

    Of course it was politically motivated. He can't run on his accomplishments so he has to take credit for someone else's.

    "it takes away the boldness of the decision to get OBL. It also raises the question as to whether or not Obama's decision to get OBL was politically motivated."

    And it adds more substance to the W/H Insider's story that it wasn't 0bama who
    gave the order to go in and get UBL. 0bama had no idea that the mission was
    going down while he was on the W/H golf course playing golf, and the W/H staff,
    Hillary, Panetta, Gates and Daley dragged him off the golf course after
    nine rounds when the mission was well underway. 0bama is nothing but
    political and afraid to give the green light to the mission, and his mentor/advisor, Valerie Jarrett, kept him paralyzed with fear that failure of the mission would injure his chances of reelection; so he stalled instead of OK-ing the mission.

    Everything, and I mean EVERYTHING, this president does is calculated for media impact. I have no doubt they were saving it as an Ace up their proverbial sleeves for a doldrums or as a distraction from other issues like maybe the ECONOMY?

    Like everything ovomit has done,.....it was timed and orchestrated politically. It was no accident that the news of Bin Laden broke just hours after he released that doctored up joke of a birth certificate to the public.

    I completely agree. Obama's numbers were tanking BIG time right before the supposed raid. I guarantee you that this was supposed to "happen" right before the election as O's "October Surprise." But it just couldn't wait because as the #'s starting to tank so early, it would be too late in fall 2012.

    As usual, no documentation... Just their (lyin') word.

    Oh I know! The photo's of UBL as well as the raid's video is in a vault with the "real" birth certificate.

    It's in reference to OBL being diagnosed with kidney failure and was in fact recieving dialysis during the 9/11 attacks; average life expectacy for a person on dialysis is 5 years. If he manged to live 10 it would be a miracle.
    As early as March, 2000, 'Asia Week,' published in Hong Kong, expressed concern for bin Laden's health, describing a serious medical problem that could put his life in danger because of "a kidney infection that is propagating itself to the liver and requires specialized treatment". According to authorized sources, bin Laden had mobile dialysis equipment shipped to his hideout in Kandahar in the first part of 2000. According to our sources, bin Laden's "travels for health reasons" have taken place before. Between 1996 and 1998, bin Laden made several trips to Dubai on business.

    there you go, you really don't want to run in some place just because you think the guy is there. it better to know for sure if your target is in place and sometimes it takes awhile to be completely sure.

    I'm still having a little doubt as to whether or not Osama is actually dead. I do believe that the motivation for the occurrence was political (whether it was actually carried through to the end result of Osama's death or not) and was definitely scheduled just so to occur near election time.

    The Obamanistas have so defiled our economy and corrupted our political system, I wonder if we'll ever fully recover.
    Our "unprecedented" debt, impending Taxmageddon, and Depression-era unemployment are ALL Obaminations.

    I think he was held out of the loop until there was no way he could refuse the raid.
