Obama Dithers, Hostages Die – President Obama Did Nothing For A Month After British Intel Notification of Location For U.S. ISIS Hostages….

When he finally did act, a month later, they were gone.

Obama selfie stick 2WASHINGTON DC – The U.S. government obtained intelligence on the possible location of American captives held by ISIS in Syria last year, but Obama administration officials waited nearly a month to launch a rescue mission because of concerns that the intelligence wasn’t conclusive and some of it had come from a foreign service, U.S. and British officials told The Daily Beast.

British officials, as well as private security contractors, said they were frustrated by Washington’s hesitance to give the go-ahead for a rescue attempt, which eventually was carried out on July 4, 2014, by which time the hostages had been moved. The following month, ISIS began beheading its American and British prisoners in a series of grisly Internet videos.

Toward the end of May, the British government had identified two or three locations in and around the Syrian city of Raqqa, the de facto capital of the so-called Islamic State, where the militants had moved hostages during the previous weeks and months. But the British were not absolutely sure in which location the Westerners were held. The captives included American journalists James Foley and Steven Sotloff, as well aid worker Kayla Mueller. The information—based on debriefings of European captives who had been released, satellite and drone surveillance, and electronic eavesdropping—was not definitive in May.

Then, in early June, London had a “positive identification and that information was shared with Washington,” said a British source. The delay of nearly a month before the rescue bid was mounted remains a source of bewilderment for British officials.

But a U.S. official said that inside the White House, Obama’s senior national-security advisers were not willing to base a raid on intelligence developed by a foreign service. “The issue was that they didn’t trust it, and they wanted to develop and mature the intelligence, because it wasn’t our own,” said the U.S. official, who asked to remain anonymous when discussing sensitive hostage-rescue efforts.

“They got the information. They just didn’t trust it. And they did sit on it, there’s no doubt about that,” the official said.  (read more)

      Seems like he isn’t busy at all. He picks and chooses when he wants to work, what he wants to say, and what image he wants to present. Being a President is above and beyond a full-time job, and he’s acting like it is a 9 to 5 cushy office job.

      I don’t mind the golfing, because everyone needs time to relax and take a break. If Presidents didn’t, there would be mental breakdowns. If something terrible happens though, it’s not good for him to hit the links right afterwards.

      If a white person is maliciously killed or mutilated, he’s silent. When a black person or Muslim is killed, he dashes to the microphone to denounce such violence (even if they were the criminal). Pick and choose, right?

      He does what he wants, when he wants, and there are zero repercussions. The media won’t call him out, Congress will say things, but won’t do anything about it, and that’s how America is being degraded.

      America is never going to be a country destroyed by some outside force, it was always going to be worn from the inside. Only good people, solid leaders, and honorable individuals can keep the ship afloat. Right now? We’re sinking, we’re taking on water, and everyone is complaining about the holes instead of plugging them up.

    Obama hates the Brits so much that of course he wouldn’t act on their intel. If the rescue was successful it might get out that the Brits helped, can’t have that!

    The blood of those hostages are on Obama’s hands. I agree with another poster that America is a sinking ship, a sinking ship without a captain.

    Every day I wake up knowing that it is impossible, yet so deeply wishing we were all jointly suffering from some mass delusion, which at any moment now will be exposed, and thus save us and our country from the fast-approaching calamity. Oh how fervently do I wish…

    Alas, there is no rest for a weary mind and saddened heart. And the Clown-in-Chief seems to be taking more and more joy and satisfaction in laughing in our faces over the futility of our hopes.

    Each day evermore it feels as if we are living under the usurped occupation of the You-Got-Punked Presidency. As if each crisis is just another open invitation for The Muslim Moron to pull off more juvenile hjinks and

      He is laughing at the stupidity of his GOP opposition. They only have one way to stop his use of his pen and phone. Funding. What do they do….Comneycroneybus Bill. Funding him for a year. Meanwhile they run around passing bills they know will go nowhere and never be signed in to law. This leaves only the courts to oppose him in any telling way. Absurd.

        To top it off Boner sues him. I had to laugh myself at that one. Here is Boner authorizing Obama to do what he will in the funding and turning around telling the court it is illegal. This logic is impeccably stupid on its face.

    Some day, someone or something will wipe that s— eating grin off his face. His gravesite will have to be guarded or kept secret to keep the military and taxpaying American citizens he has betrayed from piling it with various organic exudates.
