Navy Seals Made Call to Kill Osama – Not Obama

Leon PenettaIn a stunning change to the previously released account of events, Leon Penetta, Obama’s CIA chief now says that for most of the raid, the president wasn’t watching.

Mr Panetta said: “Once those teams went into the compound I can tell you that there was a time period of almost 20 or 25 minutes where we really didn’t know just exactly what was going on. And there were some very tense moments as we were waiting for information.

“We had some observation of the approach there, but we did not have direct flow of information as to the actual conduct of the operation itself as they were going through the compound.”

Mr Panetta also revealed that the US Navy Seals made the final decision to kill bin Laden rather than the president.[1]

What happened to “at my direction” from president Obama? Now it’s “the US Navy SEALs made the final decision to kill bin Laden rather than the president”?

For several days the images of the president and his staff intently watching the unfolding of the attack on bin Laden’s compound have been thrown around as truth. Now America is told that the Commander-in-chief wasn’t watching, or commanding, at all.

This has all the appearances of plausible deniability.  If the president didn’t know what was happening, he couldn’t possibly have made the wrong choice.

Osama is dead, or so the world has been told. Now, the man that ordered the operation is walking away from all responsibility and heaping it upon the men he sent in there to carry it out. They are SEALs, they can carry much more than the wimpy, worthless elitist that accidentally got elected president.

The high side of this is that if Osama bin Laden is dead, it was all the action, determination and decision-making of the U.S. Navy SEALs and nothing to do with Obama – nothing.

  1. Seals had helmut cams, thus they sould see everything that was happening.This is pure political wrangling at its worst. I personally am sick and tired of the blatant lies and misinformation coming out of this administration, period. Fire em all in 2012, lets restore some sanity and trust in the White House !

  2. The Obama regime while inept, is quite dangerous, and not only to its enemies. It is capable of the worst crimes imaginable, and is committing them now against American citizens and soldiers alike. One only has to defy Obama, and the retributions begin.

  3. This doesn’t surprise me. Obama is a flake from first to last, never responsible, never competent, with all the grace and class of a drunken steer.

  4. obama sent the seal team into pakistan , get that straight , he was not there to say shoot him now, he tried to flee and made a sudden move and they shot him. a soilder does not call his superior to get permission shoot a enemy while he is being threatened. common sense.
