Worst CIC In History of USA ~ Me, Me, Me, Narcissistic Tinkerbell Obama Describes The Bin Laden Killing On 60 Minutes

Barack Obama took 5 months, from August 2010 until January 2011, before he brought a team together to shape a plan to get Osama Bin Laden. This was after he knew in August the Bin Laden was hiding in the Abbottabad compound.

From Barack Obama’s interview with 60 Minutes

Business Insider

STEVE KROFT: When was that when you set that plan in motion?


Well, they first came to me in August of last year with evidence of the compound. And they said that they had more work to do on it, but at that point they had enough that they felt that it was appropriate for us to start doing some planning. And so from that point on we started looking at the time what our options might be.

The vigorous planning did not begin until early this year. And obviously over the last two months it’s been very intensive in which not only did an action plan get developed, but our guys actually started practicing being able to execute.

Obama said he didn't lose any sleep over Osama bin Laden's killing.

The president said he had no hesitation over ordering bin Laden's death, though he admitted to nervousness about sending U.S. special forces troops into Pakistan or the dangerous -- but ultimately successful -- mission.

"As nervous as I was about this whole process, the one thing I didn't lose sleep over was the possibility of taking bin Laden out. Justice was done," Obama said Sunday on "60 Minutes" on CBS. "And I think that anyone who would question that the perpetrator of mass murder on American soil-- didn't deserve what he got needs to have their head examined."

Obama announced a week ago, late on Sunday night, that bin Laden had been killed following a daring raid, details of which emerged over the course of the week. But while ordering the mission was a "sobering" decision, Obama said he never had doubts.

"You know, every time I make a decision -- about launching a missile, every time I make a decision about sending troops into battle -- you know I understand that this will result in people being killed," he said. "And that is a sobering fact. But it is one that comes with the job."

“We thought it was important to think through ahead of time how we would dispose of the body if he were killed in the compound. And I think that what we tried to do was – consulting with experts in Islamic law and ritual – to find something that was appropriate, that was, respectful of the body.”

Wild Thing's comment.......

You know, every time I make a decision -- about launching a missile"

Wait. What? OMG what an ego!

The president said he had no hesitation over ordering bin Laden's death."

This should make most Liberals head explode. So they weren't ordered to capture Bin Laden if possible? Remember Water-Boarding is bad. This is also the same administration that wanted to read Miranda rights to combatants. No military trials.

I wonder why he never thought about this stuff when Bush was in office?

I hope someday in the not too distant future that obama gets to talk a lot about himself at his trial.

In other words, your hero Osama is dead. Leave the country, you fucking traitor.

Hi WT,
It appears he had months of hesitation, anyway one of my long time commentators gave the below and I also did as a post.

Confused about Osama Obama and the dead Osama?

My friend and long time commentator JC has put forward the summation of what happened per the White House and Obama as he pats himself on the back.

Just to make sure I have the story straight…
1) There was a firefight.
2) There was no firefight.
3) Bin Laden was “resisting.”
4) Bin Laden wasn’t armed. (Makes the concept of “resisting” interesting.)
[4.a) And the newest one: the SEALS thought bin Laden was reaching for a weapon.]
5) He used his wife as a shield.
6) His wife was killed too.
7) He didn’t use his wife as a shield. She ran at a SEAL who shot her in the leg, but she’s fine.
8 ) Some other woman — the maid? — was used as a shield. By somebody. Downstairs.
9) That other woman — downstairs — was killed.
10) Maybe not. She was killed unless she wasn’t — and who was she, anyway?
11) Bin Laden’s son was killed.
12) Unless it was some other guy.
13) Bin Laden’s daughter saw him get killed. She’s undoubtedly traumatized, poor dear.
14) They were going to capture Bin Laden until the problem with the helicopter, which was:
…..A) It had mechanical trouble
…..B) It did a hard landing
…..C) It crashed
…..D) It clipped a wall with a tail rotor, effectively a crash
15.) They were never going to try to capture him; it was always a kill mission.
16.) No, it wasn’t.
17) The chopper blew up.
18) The SEALs blew it up.
19.) Panetta said yesterday the world needed proof and the photo would be released.
20.) Obama said today in an interview he taped with Steve Kroft for “60 Minutes” to be broadcast Sunday that it won’t be released. It’s too gruesome, would offend Muslim sensibilities (something he worries about a lot — I personally do not give a warm fart on a wet Wednesday about Muslim sensibilities), and how would Americans feel if Muslims released pictures of dead Americans?
21.) Kroft — who’s not a total idiot — pointed out that ever since “Black Hawk Down” days, Muslims have been doing precisely that, filming American bodies being dragged through the streets, filming Daniel Pearl’s head being cut off, filming any and everything.
22) Obama gets pissed at CBS, the tape gets cleaned up, that question disappears. (Inside info.)
23.) We got a “treasure trove” of stuff from hard drives, etc.
24.) There were no phone lines, and no internet access at the “mansion,” they didn’t even have TV — what “treasure trove?”
25.) There is obviously in the pictures of the place a large satellite dish. I guess they used it for making salads.
26.) And now, just today: apparently the idea was to capture him, but only if he was naked. There was a suspicion he might be wearing a suicide bomber type explosive vest, or belt. So if he’s not naked and you can’t see if he has a vest on or not – shoot him.
27) The administration watched a live video feed of the operation.
28) There was no live video feed of the operation.
29) Osama is in no way a Muslim nor a leader.
30) We must show Osama the respect we’d show any Muslim leader.
Confused yet?

My friend Denise over at Puma By Design said that we were up to 29 revisions. That would have been an average of 4/day on changes in the story.
