Ulsterman serves to point out how this report is corroborated by facts later revealed: “The Ulsterman Report: Obama’s Ground Zero Hypocrisy,” 5/5/2011.
Overall, Gulag Bound has held back from endorsing the alleged reports of “Ulsterman” and his source(s), “Insider.” However, we have noted them and they tend to be accurate to the facts we then or later find. As it seems, they are either real journalism citing one or more characters “in the loop” to the workings in process of the Obama White House, or an eerily cogent fraud so sharp in its analysis as to be informative in its own way.
Frankly, we do not condone such leaking and ratting out of private information from such a sensitive, even politically sacred place. Then again, we have never before had such Marxofascist, globalist enemies of the Constitution of the United States of America in control of that place.
Among the apparently factual or clairvoyant Ulsterman reports are yesterday’s and today’s assessments of the dynamics of the Obama administration leading up to the dispatching of Osama Bin Laden. They indicate a virtual, intramural coup, with Valerie Jarrett excised from her primal position of control, at least concerning this set of issues, and a rogue-like power move by Leon Panetta and what may be called the Clinton arm in the executive branch.
Here begins today’s Ulsterman report.
White House Insider: Obama Hesitated – Panetta Issued Order to Kill Osama Bin Laden
“What Valerie Jarrett, and the president, did not know is that Leon Panetta had already initiated a program that reported to him –and only him, involving a covert on the ground attack against the compound.”
Q: You stated that President Obama was “overruled” by military/intelligence officials regarding the decision to send in military specialists into the Osama Bin Laden compound. Was that accurate?
A: I was told – in these exact terms, “we overruled him.” (Obama) I have since followed up and received further details on exactly what that meant, as well as the specifics of how Leon Panetta worked around the president’s “persistent hesitation to act.” There appears NOT to have been an outright overruling of any specific position by President Obama, simply because there was no specific position from the president to do so. President Obama was, in this case, as in all others, working as an absentee president.
I was correct in stating there had been a push to invade the compound for several weeks if not months, primarily led by Leon Panetta, Hillary Clinton, Robert Gates, David Petraeus, and Jim Clapper. The primary opposition to this plan originated from Valerie Jarrett, and it was her opposition that was enough to create uncertainty within President Obama. Obama would meet with various components of the pro-invasion faction, almost always with Jarrett present, and then often fail to indicate his position. This situation continued for some time, though the division between Jarrett/Obama and the rest intensified more recently, most notably from Hillary Clinton. She was livid over the president’s failure to act, and her office began a campaign of anonymous leaks to the media indicating such. As for Jarrett, her concern rested on two primary fronts. One, that the military action could fail and harm the president’s already weakened standing with both the American public and the world. Second, that the attack would be viewed as an act of aggression against Muslims, and further destabilize conditions in the Middle East.
Q: What changed the president’s position and enabled the attack against Osama Bin Laden to proceed?
A: Nothing changed with the president’s opinion – he continued to avoid having one. Every time military and intelligence officials appeared to make progress in forming a position, Jarrett would intervene and the stalling would begin again. Hillary started the ball really rolling as far as pressuring Obama began, but it was Panetta and Petraeus who ultimately pushed Obama to finally act – sort of. Panetta was receiving significant reports from both his direct CIA sources, as well as Petraeus-originating Intel. Petraeus was threatening to act on his own via a bombing attack. Panetta reported back to the president that a bombing of the compound would result in successful killing of Osama Bin Laden, and little risk to American lives. Initially, as he had done before, the president indicated a willingness to act. But once again, Jarrett intervened, convincing the president that innocent Pakistani lives could be lost in such a bombing attack, and Obama would be left attempting to explain Panetta’s failed policy. Again Obama hesitated – this time openly delaying further meetings to discuss the issue with Panetta. A brief meeting was held at this time with other officials, including Secretary Gates and members of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, but Gates, like Panetta, was unable to push the president to act. It was at this time that Gates indicated to certain Pentagon officials that he may resign earlier than originally indicated – he was that frustrated. Both Panetta and Clinton convinced him to stay on and see the operation through.
What happened from there is what was described by me as a “masterful manipulation” by Leon Panetta. Panetta indicated to Obama that leaks regarding knowledge of Osama Bin Laden’s location were certain to get out sooner rather than later, and action must be taken by the administration or the public backlash to the president’s inaction would be “…significant to the point of political debilitation.” It was at that time that Obama stated an on-ground campaign would be far more acceptable to him than a bombing raid. This was intended as a stalling tactic, and it had originated from Jarrett. Such a campaign would take both time, and present a far greater risk of failure. The president had been instructed by Jarrett to inform Mr., Panetta that he would have sole discretion to act against the Osama Bin Laden compound. Jarrett believed this would further delay Panetta from acting, as the responsibility for failure would then fall almost entirely on him. What Valerie Jarrett, and the president, did not know is that Leon Panetta had already initiated a program that reported to him –and only him, involving a covert on the ground attack against the compound. Basically, the whole damn operation was already ready to go….
The initial Insider alert was published on Monday, May 2nd. It may be found at Ulsterman’s Newsflavor site. That read is also suggested.
Moving ahead, it is likely that Gulag Bound will refer to Ulsterman as an unconfirmed source.
Note: This should not be mistaken as a story which would posit that the White House is being loosened from the grip of neo-Marxist radicalism. Hillary Clinton established a highly significant relationship with George Soros long ago now, wrote her big term paper on Saul Alinsky, etc.
