OBAMA TAKING ALL THE CREDIT FOR THE BIN LADEN RAID....AGAIN
Barack Obama spent Sunday in what has now become a swing state, New Hampshire. The usually Democrat stronghold is now considered one of the several states that could go either way in the 2012 election. So while crossing the state in his Canadian made black bus that he flies to state after state at tax payer expense for campaigning using Air Force One to fly to a near by airport then board the bus attempting to look like making a long bus tour, Obama is still trying to make the claim that HE was the sole reason that the raid which killed Usama bin Laden was a success.
The above quotation was delivered by Senator Jeanne Shaheen the senior Senator from the state of New Hampshire and a Democrat. Just like in any appearance made by Obama, Shaheen was given specific instructions on how to introduce Obama for the campaign appearance. So attempting to deny that the campaign nor Obama did not know that she would introduce Obama as the master mind behind the raid would be insulting.
From the moment that bin Laden was killed and Obama went public about the raid he and his administration have been providing detailed information about the raid that began a series of intelligence leaks that are currently under investigation. Intelligence leaks that have severely damaged America's ability to gather intelligence, placed untold numbers of intelligence operatives at risk and threatened the lives of not only Americans but those who have assisted in US intelligence gathering.
In the days following the raid and since Obama and his cronies have tried to portray the idea that Obama almost alone was responsible for the raid with little if any credit given to the true heroes of Seal Team Six who actually risked their lives carrying out the raid as well as the intelligence operatives who discovered the location of bin Laden and details of the compound which made the raid possible. All Obama did was give the go ahead for the raid and this after almost TWO WEEKS of indecision before finally making a decision that was easy to make....go get him.
Soon after the raid was accomplished Movie Director Kathryn Bigelow, the Academy Award winning Director of the excellent movie, "The Hurt Locker," was given complete access to all of the intelligence as well as personnel involved with the raid. Access that Bigelow understandably quickly accepted but which was in actuality illegal. Bigelow of course had no knowledge of the illegality of the access but Obama and his staff did.
The purpose of the unlimited access was for Bigelow who had already been working on a movie about the hunt for bin Laden, would take the information and make a movie about the raid to be released in October, just before the election as a boost for Obama's reelection campaign. Well for once Hollywood has not cooperated with Obama and his ego. The movie, "Zero Dark Thirty," was originally scheduled for a mid October release but last week, Sony Pictures announced that the release date has been backed up until December 19th more than a month after the November 6th election.
So even Obama's illegal leak of sensitive intelligence information that could only be declassified by direct Presidential order since it involved current covert operations, not only has failed to get him the ego boosting arrogant plug that he has desired, but opened his administration for yet one more avenue for massive corruption and illegal activity. All along taking credit for the actions of many heroes who alone deserve the credit for getting bin Laden. Not Obama and certainly not being introduced at campaign stops as the man who got bin Laden.
