In "Leading From Behind: The Reluctant President and the Advisors Who Decide for Him," Richard Miniter writes that Obama canceled the "kill" mission in January 2011, again in February, and a third time in March. Obama's close adviser Valerie Jarrett persuaded him to hold off each time, according to the book.When I first clicked through from Lucianne's post to The Daily Caller's story I got this big scary warning:
Miniter, a two-time New York Times best-selling author, cites an unnamed source with Joint Special Operations Command who had direct knowledge of the operation and its planning.
"President Obama's greatest success was actually his greatest failure," Miniter told The Daily Caller Friday. "Leading From Behind," he said, traces the arc of six key Obama administration decisions, and shows how the president made them — and, often, failed to make them.
Yeah, right. Nice try, lefties.
