Obama LIED when he said U.S. pulled off bin Laden raid without help

President Obama lied to Americans about the role of Pakistan special forces in the raid which killed Osama Bin Laden so he could take credit for the mission, an expose published on Sunday has claimed.

Pulitzer prize-winning journalist Seymour Hersh has accused the the Commander-In-Chief of rushing to receive plaudits just hours after the Navy SEAL operation which killed the head of Al Qaeda and 9/11 mastermind four years ago.

In an article for the London Review of Books, where Hersh attacks a number of U.S. foreign policy areas, he says Obama’s address caused ‘chaos’ in the intelligence community and forced them to collaborate his story.

The former New York Times reporter quotes former American and Pakistani intelligence sources, as well as Navy SEALs as he claims that the White House and CIA repeatedly lied to the public about nearly every aspect of the bin Laden raid.

He says ‘high-level lying’ and ‘bypassing the chain of command’ is standard fare in U.S. counter-terrorism and those who stand up to the White ‘say no’ to the consensus are usually phased out. 


Seymour Hersh Trigger Warning…

    As much as I can believe that Obama is liar, Sy Hersh is a bigger liar. He’s got a 50 year career of being anti American, anti Western, anti Israel and a serial liar who makes absurd claims. He spent the better part of a decade telling us that the evil Zionist empire will absolutely bet the farm no I really really mean it this time going to bomb the peaceful peace loving Persians of peace tomorrow morning 6am Tehran time. No really I have proof, stop laughing, hands down stone cold lock of the century…….

          “As early as 17 December 2003 former US Secretary State Madeline
          Albright told Fox TV that bin Laden was dead. Hameed Gul, retired army
          General and a former Pakistan intelligence ISI commander stated this
          week that bin Ladin died way back and was buried in a private place. He
          added that the intelligence was that the grave was in that compound and
          thus the attack was to get the body. ”

          There were even reports
          of bin Laden’s funeral in the Egyptian paper al Wafd and the Observer
          of Pakistan on December 26, 2001. Following is the translation of
          al-Wafd article that appeared on December 26, 2001.

            These people do not know of what they discuss. Almost all of the potential information has been severely degraded by conspirators being excessively creative and sublimely ignorant, and by people indulging in self-aggrandisement.

          …..During his 60 Minutes interview with CBS News last night,
          Barack Obama admitted that US intelligence was only 55/45 confident
          that Bin Laden was even in the compound raided last Sunday night,
          fearing that the occupant could actually have been a “prince from
          Dubai,” a skepticism shared by residents of Abbottabad, one of whom
          told the BBC that the man seen watching television in the tapes
          released by the White House Saturday was in fact his neighbor, not Bin
          Laden.

            Obambi isn’t in the loop for serious information. And he is a liar. And his participation in the decision-making for the Bin laden attack was “limited”.

    The same approach would have been taken regardless who was president.

    When it comes to reporting, Hersh is hardly Mr. Reliable.

  • MannieP

    I am amazed that Zerobama did the right thing for once. Blind pig finding a truffle, I suppose. He was protecting allied officers who helped us on a sensitive mission. Not revealing their role was exactly the right thing to do. That POS Seymour Hersh should be hanged for espionage and treason for releasing that information. Officers who aided the US have been put into mortal danger by that POS. I’m surprised that the Treasonous criminal Zerobama didn’t stab them in the arse himself. It would fit his style.

    • Minicapt

      The White House has released the necessary info on the Pakistanis who aided the mission, who have subsequently faced prosecution and death threats. I would be surprised that Herr Hersh has released significant info because his specialty is quoting unnamed high level sources who cannot later be identified; most of his revelations appear to be developed from his imaginary contacts.
      Obama did the ‘right thing’ because he was informed of the operation after it couldn’t be cancelled.

      Cheers

    Hersch likes to go for big scoops and has not always been accurate. In this case though, he seems to be onto something and is likely partially correct at least. I don’t know why it seems to have escaped public notice, but the statements coming from “The Authorities” during the BadLinen take-down indicated that something was up. There’s a set method used by democracies when things like this are announced. Military spoxes release data carefully, ensuring accuracy whilst withholding sensitive operational data. This time the White House got in on the action – changing its story several times – and the most charitable analysis was that they hijacked the process for political gain, making a mess of it due to inexperience. It’s not at all surprising to learn that there was considerable fabrication involved as well.
