Bombshell revelation: Obama canceled Bin Laden 'kill' raid three times at the urging of... wait for it... Valerie Jarrett

Update: The post is live now and it's truly shocking.

At the urging of Valerie Jarrett, President Barack Obama canceled the operation to kill Osama bin Laden on three separate occasions before finally approving the May 2, 2011 Navy SEAL mission, according to an explosive new book scheduled for release August 21. The Daily Caller has seen a portion of the chapter in which the stunning revelation appears.

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...

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.

Obama administration officials also said after the raid that the president had delayed giving the order to kill the arch-terrorist the day before the operation was carried out, in what turned out to be his fourth moment of indecision. At the time, the White House blamed the delay on unfavorable weather conditions near bin Laden’s compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan.

But when Miniter obtained that day’s weather reports from the U.S. Air Force Combat Meteorological Center, he said, they showed ideal conditions for the SEALs to carry out their orders.

“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.

Great to know that Valerie Jarrett -- the military genius -- is now responsible for national security. Nice Deb reminds us that the so-called "White House Insider" accurately described this scenario at the time of the raid .

Looks like this might have accidentally leaked a bit too soon (the story's been pulled for the moment), but stay tuned to The Daily Caller tomorrow for this blockbuster story:

It would appear that even Obama's one signature "achievement" -- giving the order to kill Bin Laden -- was very nearly a SCOAMF.

Wow! When I first read this article about the ice cream truck ban on the's web site I thought I was imagining things. There is just no way anyone could be serious about fighting crime by banning ice cream trucks. That's as stupid as banning cars because you think that they are being used as a front for drunk driving. A lot of the other excuses that I read sounded equally pathetic.
