    Not only did former Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta leak the name of the Navy SEAL group responsible for the killing of Osama Bin Laden in 2011, but the release of the Pentagon Inspector General’s (IG) report revealing the incident, which was ready in July 2012, was delayed until now. In the spring of 2012, GOP members accused Barack Obama’s administration of leaking national security secrets to help Obama get reelected, but the administration denied it. At a CIA awards ceremony on June 24, 2011, Panetta named the SEAL group and its commander. Among those present were 1300 military and...

    For those of you who always thought that Hillary was lying about everything, you’re about to be proven right. Moreover, the news is going to come from a very unexpected source: Hillary herself. The National Enquirer, which has stuck very close to honest reporting since getting burned in a long-ago libel suit, reports that Hillary has decided to stop the lies and tell the truth in an upcoming memoir. Simon & Schuster will pay her $25 million for writing the book, which she hopes will inoculate her 2016 presidential run against any future ugly revelations. According to the National Enquirer’s...

Sulaiman Abu Ghaith, was captured within the last week in Jordan, according to a spokesman for U.S. Rep. Peter King of New York. The lawmaker had been told of the capture by law enforcement officials. Congress was notified when Ghaith was taken into U.S. custody, the officials said.

    Barack Obama cancelled three operations to kill Osama bin Laden before finally going ahead with the mission at the insistence of Hillary Clinton, according to a new book. The explosive allegation is contained in an expose by journalist Rich Miniter, who argues that the White House’s carefully-crafted narrative of Obama as a decisive leader who dispatched the al-Qaeda leader despite the doubts of advisers is a myth. Leading from Behind: The Reluctant President and the Advisors Who Decide for Him will be published on Tuesday. Excerpts have been viewed by Mail Online.

    Top White House officials worked closely with producers of a movie about the successful killing of Osama bin Laden and pushed them to incorporate the administration’s talking points, according to administration documents unveiled by Judicial Watch. “I took your guidance and spoke to the WH and had a good meeting with [John] Brennan and [Denis] McDonough and I plan to follow up with them; and they were forward leaning and interested in sharing their point of view,” screenwriter Mark Boal wrote in a July 2011 transcript of a Pentagon meeting. Brennan is President Barack Obama’s chief counter-terrorism adviser and Denis...

    The Daily Caller has obtained a scrapped skit authored by comedian Jim Downey, intended for airing at the opening of last night’s “Saturday Night Live” on NBC. In the skit, which was not aired, President Barack Obama addresses Americans soon after the first anniversary of the killing of Osama bin Laden — and the president makes sure to remind viewers that all credit for the raid on the terrorist leader’s compound belonged to him. “I hope you had a safe and joyous first anniversary of his killing,” the president, portrayed by Fred Armisen, begins. “Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to be...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama gave a steely defense of his handling of the raid that killed Osama bin Laden and his use of it to burnish his re-election credentials a year later, saying Monday that it is appropriate to mark an anniversary that Republicans charge is being turned into a campaign bumper sticker. He then jumped at the chance to portray presumed Republican presidential challenger Mitt Romney as unprepared to make the kind of hard call required to send U.S. forces on that highly risky mission. Without mentioning Romney by name, Obama recommended looking at people's previous statements...

Strain etched on his face, Barack Obama watched as the raid to kill Osama bin Laden played out on a television in front of him. According to a new book, however, the President was not nearly that engaged – and was actually playing golf until 20 minutes before the operation began in earnest.Only then did he down his clubs and return to the White House to watch what he later trumpeted as a great success of his presidency.

    Georgetown University professor C. Christine Fair has written a post at Registan.net alleging that Nicholas Schmidle’s New Yorker cover story detailing the Navy SEAL raid on Osama bin Laden’s compound may be a fraud. At the very least, Fair alleges, Schmidle failed to interview the Navy SEALs involved in the operation–which is not mentioned anywhere in the article, but is apparent from a close analysis of the text. Is that really the way bin Laden dyed? (pun intended)

    Americans are growing increasingly more frustrated with President Barack Obama’s handling of the economy and only 3 in 10 say they are certain they will vote to re-elect him in 2012, a new poll finds. Just 23 percent of those surveyed for a Bloomberg News poll released Wednesday say they are hopeful about the economy because they see signs of improvement, while 25 percent say they are fearful things are getting worse and 51 percent are cautious because nothing seems to be happening. Those signs of economic pessimism aren’t helping Obama’s reelection bid. Sixty-one percent of Americans say they believe...

    A week after picking apart many of the undeclared Republican presidential candidates (including one, Newt Gingrich, who became a declared candidate this week) "Saturday Night Live" turned its attention to President Barack Obama and his perceived showboating over the killing of terrorist leader Osama bin Laden. Conservatives have frequently criticized the president over perceived showboating about bin Laden's death. Radio host Rush Limbaugh said Obama used the words "I," "me" and "my" too much in his first public comments after bin Laden's killing. Then, in follow-up programs, Limbaugh attacked Obama's subsequent public appearances, including one near the Mexican border in...

    U.S. intelligence is now in possession of a veritable "playbook" of al Qaeda operations -- from potential terror attack targets to information on international safe houses and top commanders -- thanks to the Navy SEAL raid that took down Osama bin Laden Sunday, officials told ABC News today. The cache of electronic and handwritten materials obtained by the SEALs includes numerous hallmark al Qaeda plots including attacks on infrastructure targets such as water supply and transportation including rail and air, in what one official described as a "strategic guide for how to attack the U.S." In the past, al Qaeda...

    U.S. commandos missed with their first shot at Osama bin Laden, when the world’s most wanted man poked his head out of a third-floor room to see what was headed his way, according to U.S. Sen. Saxby Chambliss, the ranking Republican on the Senate Intelligence Committee. Bin Laden ducked back in, and the Navy SEALS quickly followed and finished the job, Chambliss said in a telephone interview this afternoon. The missed shot was a new detail in the emerging story of the 40-minute raid on the Abbottabad compound in Pakistan. Chambliss also said commandos found a pistol and AK-47 in...

    President Obama has endured entertainment industry criticism over the last few years for requesting premium broadcast air time for making speeches.

Multiple news organizations are reporting that the White House is set to announce that, at last, Osama bin Laden is dead. ABC, CBS and NBC have cut away from scheduled programming to cover this enormous news.

    The CIA has come closer to capturing or killing Osama bin Laden's top deputy than was previously known during the past nine years, the Associated Press has learned. Tragically, the agency thought it had its best chance last year at a secret base in Afghanistan, but instead fell victim to a double agent's devastating suicide bombing. The CIA missed a chance to nab Ayman al-Zawahri in 2003 in the northwest Pakistani city of Peshawar, where he met with another senior al Qaeda leader who was apprehended the next day, several current and former U.S. intelligence officials said.

But none of us forgets the terror inflicted on the whole world six years ago; the sudden appearance, after so many years, of a real sense of American national unity, and the equally-surprising commitment to change in U.S. policies in the Middle East. President George W. Bush, in vowing to promote democracy across the globe, brusquely abandoned the defense of the regional status quo...

    WASHINGTON: In a videotaped message replete with references that indicate he is up to speed with contemporary events and debates, Osama bin Laden has delivered a political broadside against the United States while calling on Americans to abandon capitalism and embrace Islam. The 30-minute videotape, which arrived in public domain earlier than anticipated, contains a leftist-sounding political and foreign policy critique of the American system while being free of any terrorist threat except for a broad eye-for-an-eye warning. Instead, an almost placatory "Professor" bin Laden beseeches Americans to ditch their political system controlled by big corporations that profits from war....
