    This story is making the rounds now...

    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

    That pic pretty much describes it. No wonder Gates resigned/ retired. I have more respect now for Leon Panetta, Hillary and Gates if this is true. Just look at the pic carefully, with Obama in his golf clothes. It's a shame, if true, that they had to interrupt his golf game to be forced to play grownup.

    With Obama, it's politics all the time (when it's not golf). But he sure made that victory lap and tried to claim all the credit. I'd love to be a fly on the wall when he and Hillary are discussing things. I'll bet she really can't stand him.

    It probably explains why Bush refused to stand next to him.

    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 presidentís 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 presidentís 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.
    From the second linked article in the opening post. I hope that the Republicans can somehow convince General Patraeus to run. Also, if this is indeed true, I want to recant all the things that I previously thought about Panetta. I'm glad that he'll be in a position of greater authority and that the General will be running the CIA.

    I strongly suggest reading the rest of the 2nd link. It's pretty scary stuff. I'm glad that they reigned in Jarrett and her influence. She needs to return to Chicago. She and Obama are both in over their heads. They are reverting to type---the Chicago brand of politics.

    This is absolutely disgusting, but should make all of us thankful that he does have a few good men and woman (HC). I've never been a fan of hers, but I'm glad that she and the others stood firm against the community organizers. What cowardice if OBL survived despite their knowledge of where he was because of politics and CYA.

    At least Mrs C had more balls than her hubby. Ditto Panetta and Patreus. I'm not sure if people are getting the magnitude of what has been leaked here. The CIC had a coup against him. He was indecisive and they just made an end run around him.

    He took credit after it went well, but surprise, surprise, was ready to throw everyone else under the bus. And how does that woman from Chicago, Jarrett, have such an iron grip on the handling of major events?

    This makes Obama look like a dazed incompetent who has to be handed a script after the fact. This is very scary indeed.

    Don't be too kind to Panetta . His next job as SecDef is to stip the military budget to the bare bones.As DCI he has own his political motives to oppose Obama and take control of the situation .

    Obama is weak and frightened .He has faith in Jarrett and needs her to cover his back .They didn't so much reigned in Jarrett as to 'end run' her and she still has Obamas ear .Once Panetta gave the Seals the go ahead and they blew him away on live video there was little Jarrett could do to convince Obama to stop them .

    He looks like a little kid sitting on a small stool with his mouth open.I also notice Jarrett wasn't in the room ?Perhaps her clearance wasn't high enough ?We are in such 'deep do do with these Chicago hangmen in our White House !!!!!

    More fiction for the propaganda eaters who cannot bear the thought that they have been lied to about Obama.

    Salve to cover the wound of the hated Democrat eliminating bin Laden.
