Valerie Jarrett Blocked Three Bin Laden Kill Raids

By | July 30, 2012

We’ve all seen the brilliance of Obama’s Senior Advisor, Valerie Jarrett, in action.  She stated that unemployment stimulates the economy and the distribution of the related checks is good for the economy.  How far gone would you have to be to believe this drivel?  However, in the realm of foreign affairs, it’s more unbelievable.   According to the Daily Caller, Jarrett put the kibosh on plans to kill Bin Laden not once, but three times!  The Executive Editor for The Daily Caller, David Martosko, wrote on July 29 that:

 In ”Leading From Behind: The Reluctant President and the Advisors Who Decide for Him,“ Richard Miniter writes that Obama canceled the “kill” mission in January 2011, again in February, and a third time in March. Obama’s close adviser Valerie Jarrett persuaded him to hold off each time, according to the book.

Miniter, a two-time New York Times best-selling author, cites an unnamed source with Joint Special Operations Command who had direct knowledge of the operation and its planning.

Obama administration officials also said after the raid that the president had delayed giving the order to kill the arch-terrorist the day before the operation was carried out, in what turned out to be his fourth moment of indecision. At the time, the White House blamed the delay on unfavorable weather conditions near bin Laden’s compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan.

But when Miniter obtained that day’s weather reports from the U.S. Air Force Combat Meteorological Center, he said, they showed ideal conditions for the SEALs to carry out their orders.

What possible reason could one have for not killing Bin Laden?  Reasons that don’t include the typical characteristics of liberal academia, which usually revolve around the incessant reiteration of international law, moral authority, martyrdom dilemma, and outright weakness.  We don’t need notes from study sessions to be factored into the methodology for every executive decision. We killed bin Laden, his martyrdom hasn’t really galvanized the Arab world, and international law was kinda rejected since we did, in the end, violate the territorial integrity of Pakistan. No major backlash.  So what was the problem?  Valerie, we’re waiting on you.

    They were waiting for the best political moment. Which turned out to be when Trump demanded a birth certificate.
