"""Details emerge on why SEAL hostage rescue failed; Obama was golfing, refused to approve it in time"""
Two hostages remain in captivity because President Obama couldnt be bothered to approve their rescue while he was on vacation, according to defense officials familiar with the details who spoke to Fox News.
On Aug. 10 a team of Navy SEALS was ready to pounce on their target in eastern Afghanistan to rescue two English teachers, U.S. citizen Kevin King and Australian Timothy Weeks, when they were suddenly told to stand down, Ami Newswire reported.
The SEALS could not get the go ahead because Obama didnt have time, while on vacation at Marthas vineyard, to give his approval and wanted 24 hours to consider it.
When he finally did give the order a day later the SEALS launched their mission.
Seven enemy combatants were killed, and one injured, in the raid.
We raised hell in that compound, a security staffer with knowledge of the attack told Ami Newswire. We knocked down walls and killed bad guys.

Worse than LBJ having to approve bombing raids on outhouses in Vietnam.
AWOL and dereliction of duty in time of war, a capital offense.
Two lives? It was four lives. Two English teachers, U.S. citizen Kevin King and Australian Timothy Weeks.
***wanted 24 hours to consider it.***
Remember the death of Osama Bin Laden and the rumors that Obama and Valerie Jarret were sidelined, after stalling, so the attack could take place? The report came from a web page not allowed on Fr but the rumors were all over the internet at that time.
Obama later took credit for the attack.
What a useless sack of skin.
Few people realize how the President was kept out of the final hours of the Bin Laden episode and only dragged in at the last minute to watch the event unfold. Lot of anger by insider staff on how the Pentagon arranged for this to occur without their participation.
American Lives Don't Matter.
Perhaps what you meant is neither American or Australian lives matter.
AWOL and dereliction of duty in time of war, a capital offense. .............................. Looks like we got Pvt. Slovic as CIC?
He’s the biggest POS that ever conned his way into the Whitehouse.
“King” and “Weeks” are last names that are just TOO CAUCASIAN-SOUNDING for 0bama to give a sh*t.
Counterfeit in Chief and a useless son of a b*tch.
The only reasonable explanation is that President Obama delayed the mission so that the terrorists could be tipped off and escape with the hostages.
Biggest douche in the universe.
"Worse than LBJ having to approve bombing raids on outhouses in Vietnam."
True, and now even use of an outhouse for it's intended purpose probably requires that some ecology officer gives you permission to alter the feces balance in the community.
He needed the time to get the info out to the proper people.
