I came across a very interesting and disturbing story the other day about the Osama raid. The information is from an unnamed "white house insider" and is very troubling. The CIA had been trying to do this mission for weeks, if not months and couldn't get Obama to agree to it.
Basic facts: Valerie Jarrett was against the raid and kept talking Obama out of it, too politically risky, especially if it failed like Carter's hostage rescue mission. SHE was the one who aborted the mission on Friday night NOT the weather.
Panetta finally got Clinton, Gates and Bill Daley to back him and kept Jarrett and Obama in the dark until after the mission was under way. Then they pulled Obama off the golf course.
Panetta had it set up so that the men on the mission were to only answer and take orders from him.
Your thoughts if this is actually true? To me it's very scary that we have a president that can't make a tough decision, and a woman who is a "senior advisor" that sounds like she has way too much power.Answer Question
Does not surprise me at all.... this actually makes more sense than the version where he takes credit for all of it.

I guess anything is possible. He has never seemed to come to decisions quickly, so I would not be surprised if it were true.

Conflict is what Obama is good at. Nothing has been cut and dry with him or his administration. There is a constant cover up and ALWAYS a story that disputes his. I have never seen an administration as screwed up and conflicting as his. All this cover up is a good smoke screen for everyone to just take him at his word, and everyone else with all their stories are wearing "tin foil hats", (according to Obama minions).

Is it more important to be happy at what you are doing or just making money?
