"""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 couldn’t 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 didn’t have time, while on vacation at Martha’s 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.

I thought they learned from the Bin Laden mission that you have to use Barry's indecision against him. If you ask him to start a mission it will never happen. You have to put him in the position of deciding to stop an ongoing mission. Then his penchant for indecision will allow the mission to go forward.

From 10:30 a.m. – 3:19 p.m he golfed, according to White House pool reports. On Aug. 11 his pressing schedule included more golf from 12:57 p.m. – 5:39 p.m while two lives hung in the balance.

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.

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.

Perhaps what you meant is neither American or Australian lives matter.

“King” and “Weeks” are last names that are just TOO CAUCASIAN-SOUNDING for 0bama to give a sh*t.

Obama inexplicably refuses interrupt his golf game to authorize rescue of hostages on one day. The next day, when the seals are authorized and go one the mission, they find that the hostages have suddenly been moved and are no longer at the site of the rescue.

The only reasonable explanation is that President Obama delayed the mission so that the terrorists could be tipped off and escape with the hostages.

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.

Do not interrupt the president’s golf game! Now if this was a couple of ghetto thugs it would have been different. This man won the Noble Peace Prize. The U.S. destroyed the Plane of Jars.
