'This is a flip of the coin you guys':
How President Obama told top
security advisers that raid that
killed bin Laden was a gamble

Daily Mail [UK], by Helen Pow

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 10/13/2012 6:53:24 PM

President Barack Obama has admitted that giving the green light to the raid that killed Osama bin Laden was 'a flip of the coin' decision. The president revealed he was only 50 per cent confident that the man spotted by the C.I.A. living in an Abbottabad compound was the world's most wanted terrorist, according to a new book that weaves together accounts from Obama and top decision-makers on the events leading up to the daring operation and it's aftermath. 'This is 50–50,' Obama said, silencing the small group of senior officials gathered in the situation room.

Since Obama does not bother to go to his security briefings, how did he know?

With Obama is is always all about Obama.

Obama reminds me of the Little Red Rooster who thinks he makes the sun rise.

Soooooo I guess the ones who said he had to be drug in off the golf course and fitted with a jacket over his golfing shirt were just liars. Oh, okay.

I guess my question would be, who WAS the guy (if anyone) who was murdered that night. Or did Osama Obama just mysteriously get relief from his kidney ailment and didn't need to use that machine any more, because there evidently wasn't one in his house.

Obama is milking it for all it is worth. He seems to believe, and to want Americans to believe, that simply carrying out the business of the American people, i.e. doing the job he sought and was elected to do, merits endless rounds of applause. He thinks he deserves a medal for making a tough decision - and his idea of a tough decision appears to be one that could cost him politically. And he keeps trying to hog all the credit for the Bin Laden raid. Such boasting becomes neither the man nor the office. He really should give it a rest. It is becoming more of a turn off all the time. Except to the Islamists, of course. They find such bragging to be a source of continual inspiration.

Remember Osama had several body doubles, and some authorities claimed the real Osama had died a few years before he was "killed." Two bits the Seals were told to kill "Osama," rather than letting him live, to prevent DNA proving otherwise. Apparently it was worth not taking this guy captive and trying to get vital intelligence out of him. And disposing of the body by deep-sixing it in the vast ocean waters.

I just finished reading "No Easy Day"--yesterday-- which was written by an operator who was approximately ten feet from Bin Laden when he went home to Allah. If the author's account is deemed to be accurate, both this story and the hog-wash put out by the White House have many inaccuracies. In the case of the White House version, though, we can be sure that they are not actual inaccuracies but the usual dose of deliberate lies for which they have become accustomed to feeding us. One of the most startling differences is that the CIA person in charge of tracking Bin Laden....a task she was married to for approximately ten years....was 100% certain UBL was in the compound.

I don't believe for a second that Obama has anything of value to say - or ever did. He has NO experience other than total B.S. and from what I've read he was also a horrible community organizer.

Oh, his one accomplishment might have been in participating in the lawsuit that inspired the rats to mandate the banks give mortgages to minorities regardless of their financial status. Just imagine if you had been part of the cause of this debacle - could you go in public and act like you had nothing to do with it, make hay of it, accuse others of doing it? This is the sick you know what who flashes that phony smile and expects white guilt to let him continue destroying a country he leads and hates.

He's very possibly the biggest fraud ever and certainly has perpetrated the biggest heist in all of history. Trillions!

When you order up a special operations mission a factor referred to as Murphy's law is always lurking in the background ready to make an appearance at the most inopportune time. Anyone who has been in charge of anything in the military knows about old Murphy and his law and many have seen or felt Murphy's law show up.

In the case of Osama bin Laden, the American people expected, under the circumstances, that when bin Laden was located that the President, whoever that would be, would make every effort to take bin Laden out. Any President who denied such a mission would stand no chance of ever being re-elected. Making decisions like that are what Presidents are expected to do and are not "gutsy".

Britain´s diplomatic war with Spain over the Rock of Gibraltar escalated today after border guards turned away truck loads of concrete thought to be destined for a crucial infrastructure project. The Foreign Office issued a strongly worded statement demanding an explanation from Spain, saying the situation was "wholly unacceptable". Express Online has discovered that lorries containing concrete were refused entry at the border yesterday. It is understood the concrete was earmarked for the expansion of an artificial reef off the coast of Gibraltar, a project that has infuriated Spain.

He has also suddenly come to more widespread attention after becoming embroiled in one of those ridiculous rows in which the British governing class now specialises. Earlier this week, Howell dared to volunteer an opinion that parts of the North of England should be used for fracking, because they are empty and “desolate”.

A never-before-heard tape of Monica Lewinsky telling then-President Bill Clinton that she could ´take all my clothes off´ if he agreed to an illicit meeting with her has reportedly surfaced. The tape, which records the White House intern desperately trying to lure him into meeting her, was reportedly released to the National Enquirer after it was obtained by a cleaner hired by friends of Lewinsky. It was long thought that the raunchy four-minute tape, which was recorded in November 1997, had been destroyed after the sexual affair was revealed in 1998, according to the Enquirer.

In 1936, a grandson of Robert Peel, the great Victorian prime minister, travelled to the British mandate of Palestine to settle the conflict between Arabs and Jews. Why do I mention this? Well, the solution proposed by Lord Peel’s commission in 1937 is, in all essentials, the same as the one that John Kerry, the US secretary of state, urged upon the two enemies when he opened the peace talks in Washington on Tuesday. That solution is the partition of the Holy Land into two states, Israel and Palestine. “To both Arabs and Jews, partition offers a prospect – and

US economic growth at

The US economy grew at an annualised pace of 1.7% in the second quarter of the year, the Commerce Department has said. That was a faster pace than expected by economists. It was also up from the growth rate for the first three months of 2013, which was revised lower to 1.1% from 1.8%. A slowdown was widely expected due to the impact of federal spending cuts, but also from the continuing weakness in the global economy. In March, $85bn (£56bn) of public spending was cut as a result of a deal between Democrat and Republican politicians.

Today would have been Milton Friedman’s hundred-and-first birthday. The Chicago economist is already acquiring that almost Homeric status that normally comes only decades after a man’s death.

Friedman’s ghost speaks to us through YouTube. The interviews he recorded in the 1970s remain as persuasive an exposition of free-market economics as you’ll find, and are cult viewing among young libertarians. It comes almost as a shock to be

Bagged salad is being blamed for a brutal outbreak of cyclospora that has mostly ravaged the country’s mid-section. Hundreds of cases of the infection reported across Iowa and Nebraska in recent months are being blamed on a prepackaged salad mix.

[Snip] Investigators at both the state and federal level are still working to narrow down the exact source of the outbreak.

The room full of Democrats — who happened to be meeting in the same room where the Senate GOP usually holds their weekly policy luncheons — erupted in applause and laughter as the former Republican presidential candidate made his entrance. As McCain, 76, walked out of the Dem-filled space, reporters pressed him as to why he stepped foot in the room.

I never thought the Trayvon Martin/George Zimmerman case deserved nearly the attention it got. But reasonable people can disagree about that. What strikes me as unconscionable, however, is the way the supposedly objective media have not only sensationalized a tragedy but at times appear to deliberately bend the facts to fit a desired story line. Maybe it started with the use of pictures of a younger Martin or with the sudden embrace of the term "white Hispanic" to describe Zimmerman in order to more easily paint him as a racist. NBC News was the most egregious offender
