A stunning new report from The Weekly Standard, suggests that former President Barack Obama actually hid almost half a million document (470,000) that were picked up in the raid on Osama Bin Laden to make people believe that Al Qaeda was defeated AFTER this. Thus paving the way for his 2012 victory.
Whether he would have won or not is debatable, but the fact remains that he sat on documents in an attempt to win an election…This is not right in any way, shape or form.
A senior Military Intelligence official briefed reporters at the Pentagon in May 2011, ‘As a result of the raid, we’ve acquired the single largest collection of senior terrorist materials ever.’
Editor Stephen Hayes, who first broke this story, said:
“Why would ODNI think it could get away with such an aggressive lie? … In this context, ODNI’s bet wasn’t a crazy one. No one outside of a small group of terrorism researchers and intelligence professionals had paid much attention to the fate of the bin Laden documents. The likelihood that these ODNI claims would get much scrutiny in the middle of the frenzy that accompanies a presidential transition was low.”
Obama sitting on these documents gave him enough ammunition for voters to think that they needed a continuation of government to ensure the job would get finished. If he had released the documents, it would have become clear that the job was already done…The rest is just political point scoring.
