Democrat Spin on Romney's Jeep Ad Shifts Into Absurd

If you Watch the Romney Ad , it says 'plans to return Jeep output to China'
from the Bloomberg article that says
'Fiat SpA (F), majority owner of Chrysler Group LLC, plans to return Jeep output to China and may eventually make all of its models in that country, according to the head of both automakers' operations in the region. '
Typical of the Left. The following announcement won't make the news because it conflicts with the current elect-Obama MEME. If it makes the news, it is buried and disguised  like this factoid in the article titled

Chrysler CEO Reiterates Jeep Production Staying in U.S.

Fiat, which is working on a production plan for Europe to account for the region’s slumping demand, said today that it will build a small Jeep in Italy for export beginning in
2014. The Jeep, which wasn’t identified by name, is a new model for Europe and the U.S. that isn’t currently in production, according to a Fiat presentation.
The media is complicit with the Obama campaign for this continued deception on Mitt Romney's positions, all the while covering up Obama's outright lies, coverups and possible criminal conduct. The 4th estate is the 5th column.

Woman Rescued From Raging Creek- Fowl Play Suspected

Cops: Drunken woman tried to ‘save’ ducks in storm

A Pennsylvania woman faces charges that include risking a catastrophe after she jumped into a raging creek to "save" a couple dozen wild ducks.
Southern Regional Police in York County said Justina Laniewski went into the Codorus Creek in Glen Rock on Monday evening, and her toddler started to follow her.
A neighbor grabbed the child, but it took firefighters from a nearby station to rescue Laniewski from neck-high waters. She was also charged with reckless endangerment, disorderly conduct and public drunkenness.
Southern Regional Sgt. Darryl Smuck says a breath test showed Laniewski's alcohol level was more than twice the legal limit for driving. A phone listing for her couldn't be located.

Democrats Double Down on their Fiat-Chrysler LIE

The Democrats, backed by the Main Stream Media are campaigning hard for Barack Obama against Mitt Romney. The latest in keeping with the Romney is lying MEME is about the Fiat/Chrysler Jeep ad and claims that Jeep is expanding/moving production to China. On Oct 22, 2012 Bloomberg:
Fiat Says Jeep Output May Return to China as Demand Rises

 How does the left spin it?
 updated with the following:

Bill Clinton: Mitt Romney's Jeep-to-China ad is 'biggest load of bull in the world'

The Obama campaign has complained about the Romney campaign's Jeep ad, which links the president to a report saying Chrysler plans to move its Jeep production from the U.S. to China.
Chrysler released a statement on Monday saying it had no plans to stop producing Jeeps in the U.S.
The statement said, "U.S. Jeep assembly lines will continue to stay in operation."
Clinton recounted talking to Obama earlier Monday about the claim by the Romney campaign.
"I saw the reports of Gov. Romney's latest ads saying that the president had allowed Jeep to move to China. And so this morning, before [Obama] left Florida, and went back to Washington, he said, 'You know, of all the things that Gov. Romney has said, that probably hurts my feelings the most,'" Clinton said, referring to Obama.
"He said, 'You know I never had any money when I was a kid and the first car I owned I was 30 years old, it was a Jeep. I would never move Jeep to China,'" Clinton said.
 Really? The Romney is a Liar campaign as conducted by the pathological LIARS Bill Clinton and Barack Obama:
"I saw the reports of Governor Romney's latest ad saying that the president had allowed Jeep to move to China," said Clinton. "And so this morning, before he left Florida and went back to Washington, he said, 'You know, of all the things Governor Romney has said that probably hurts my feelings the most.' He said, 'You know, I never had any money when I was a kid. and the first new car I ever owned I was 30 years old it was a Jeep.'"
Obama's first new car was a Jeep Grand Cherokee, but was 39 years old when he bought the 2000 model, not 30, as Clinton stated earlier today.  Clinton: Obama's Feelings Most Hurt Over Jeep Ad

Now the following Bloomberg article

Fiat Says Jeep Output May Return to China as Demand Rises

By Craig Trudell - Oct 22, 2012 10:10 AM CT
Fiat SpA (F), majority owner of Chrysler Group LLC, plans to return Jeep output to China and may eventually make all of its models in that country, according to the head of both automakers’ operations in the region.
Fiat is in “very detailed conversations” with its Chinese partner, Guangzhou Automobile Group Co. (2238), about making Jeeps in the world’s largest auto market, said Mike Manley, chief operating officer of Fiat and Chrysler in Asia. Chrysler hasn’t built Jeeps there since before Fiat took control in 2009.

“The volume opportunity for us is very significant,” Manley, who is also president of the Jeep brand, said in an interview at Chrysler’s Auburn Hills, Michigan, headquarters. “We’re reviewing the opportunities within existing capacity” as well as “should we be localizing the entire Jeep portfolio or some of the Jeep portfolio.”
Chrysler, which entered an alliance with Turin, Italy-based Fiat as part of its U.S. government-backed bankruptcy, is relying on growth in China to counter weakness in Europe’s auto market. The automaker is targeting 500,000 annual sales outside North America by 2014, more than triple its overseas deliveries in 2009.
Chrysler currently builds all Jeep SUV models at plants in Michigan, Illinois and Ohio. Manley referred to adding Jeep production sites rather than shifting output from North America to China.

Marines, Police Prep for Mock Zombie Invasion

Marines, police prep for mock zombie invasion
Move over vampires, goblins and haunted houses, this kind of Halloween terror aims to shake up even the toughest warriors: An untold number of so-called zombies are coming to a counterterrorism summit attended by hundreds of Marines, Navy special ops, soldiers, police, firefighters and others to prepare them for their worst nightmares.
"This is a very real exercise, this is not some type of big costume parry," said Brad Barker, president of Halo Corp, a security firm hosting the Oct. 31 training demonstration during the summit at a 44-acre Paradise Point Resort island on a San Diego bay. "Everything that will be simulated at this event has already happened, it just hasn't happened all at once on the same night. But the training is very real, it just happens to be the bad guys we're having a little fun with."
Hundreds of military, law enforcement and medical personnel will observe the Hollywood-style production of a zombie attack as part of their emergency response training.
In the scenario, a VIP and his personal detail are trapped in a village, surrounded by zombies when a bomb explodes. The VIP is wounded and his team must move through the town while dodging bullets and shooting back at the invading zombies. At one point, some members of the team are bit by zombies and must be taken to a field medical facility for decontamination and treatment.
"No one knows what the zombies will do in our scenario, but quite frankly no one knows what a terrorist will do," Barker said. "If a law enforcement officer sees a zombie and says, `Freeze, get your hands in the air!' What's the zombie going to do? He's going to moan at you. If someone on PCP or some other psychotic drug is told that, the truth is he's not going to react to you."
The keynote speaker beforehand will be a retired top spook _ former CIA Director Michael Hayden.
"No doubt when a zombie apocalypse occurs, it's going to be a federal incident, so we're making it happen," Barker said. Since word got out about the exercise, they've had calls from "every whack job in the world" about whether the U.S. government is really preparing for a zombie event.
Called "Zombie Apocalypse," the exercise follows the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's campaign launched last year that urged Americans to get ready for a zombie apocalypse, as part of a catchy, public health message about the importance of emergency preparedness.
The Homeland Security Department jumped on board last month, telling citizens if they're prepared for a zombie attack, they'll be ready for real-life disasters like a hurricane, pandemic, earthquake or terrorist attack. A few suggestions were similar to a few of the 33 rules for dealing with zombies popularized in the 2009 movie "Zombieland," which included "always carry a change of underwear" and "when in doubt, know your way out."
San Diego-based Halo Corp. founded by former military special ops and intelligence personnel has been hosting the annual counterterrorism summit since 2006.
The five-day Halo counterterrorism summit is an approved training event by the Homeland Security Grant Program and the Urban Areas Security Initiative, which provide funds to pay for the coursework on everything from the battleground tactics to combat wounds to cybersecurity. The summit has a $1,000 registration fee and runs Oct. 29-Nov 2.
Conferences attended by government officials have come under heightened scrutiny following an inspector general's report on waste and abuse at a lavish 2010 Las Vegas conference that led to the resignation of General Services Administrator Martha Johnson. The Las Vegas conference featured a clown, a mind-reader and a rap video by an employee who made fun of the spending.
Joe Newman, spokesman of the watchdog organization Project on Government Oversight, said he does not see the zombie exercise as frivolous.
"We obviously are concerned about any expenditure that might seem frivolous or a waste of money but if they tie things together, there is a lesson there," Newman said. "Obviously we're not expecting a zombie apocalypse in the near future, but the effects of what might happen in a zombie apocalypse are probably similar to the type of things that happen in natural disasters and manmade disasters. They're just having fun with it. We don't have any problems with it as a teaching point."
Defense analyst Loren Thompson agreed.
"The defining characteristics of zombies are that they're unpredictable and resilient. That may be a good way to prepare for what the Pentagon calls asymmetric warfare," Thompson said.
Organizers can also avoid the pitfalls of using a mock enemy who cannot be identified by nationality, race or culture, potentially offending someone.
"I can think of a couple of countries where the local leaders are somewhat zombie-like," he joked. "But nobody is going to take this personally."

Buffett’s firm wins auction for ResCap’s loans

Warren Buffett's company won the auction for Residential Capital's loan portfolio with a $1.5 billion bid this week.
That means the conglomerate Berkshire Hathaway Inc. will acquire the loans as long as a bankruptcy judge approves.
ResCap's board of directors said Thursday that Berkshire had submitted the best bid for its portfolio of 47,000 loans.
Berkshire's winning bid is slightly higher than the $1.442 billion minimum Berkshire promised when it became the lead bidder for ResCap's loan portfolio in June.
ResCap's parent company is Ally Financial, which is 74 percent owned by the U.S. government as a result of bailouts. ResCap has been a drain on Ally's finances for years because it has struggled to make payments on its debt ever since the U.S. housing market collapsed in 2007.

Media Ignores Obama & Romney call for REAL Fact-Check in the Debate over G.M.

Another Fact-Check Fail by the LEFT
McClatchy Writes

Facts and fiction in foreign policy debate

President Barack Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney traded barbs on foreign policy Monday night, dueling over everything from military spending to Middle East events to how best to stop Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon.
In the last of three high-stakes presidential debates, not everything they said at Lynn University in the Florida beach city of Boca Raton squared with reality. Here’s a fact check of some of what they said:

Strange the Main Stream Media wouldn't fact-check the part of the debate where BOTH candidates ask to actually check their statements. Where else in the entire debate did they call for another?   Turns out the GM OpEd statement made by Romney was CORRECT and Obama was caught in ANOTHER Flat-out LIE.  Here is the Video and quotes from the Times Op Ed.  


The Hill Fails to Fact Check or run a column on the GM Statement. Obama's remarks go unchallenged and this is the best The can do   Obama: 'We might not have an auto industry’ if Romney had been president  They dont even challenge the remarks. Again, Both candidates say check the facts.

Of course the propagandists at @MSNBC at the Maddow Blog ran with this disinformation piece.    Setting the record straight on the auto rescue

In a debate in which many of the disputes are subjective, it's nice to have an argument in which there's an objective truth. Romney told viewers last night that his position was that American auto makers "can get government help and government guarantees" as part of the bankruptcy process.
Depending on how generous one is inclined to be, this is either a lie or a stunning case of "Romnesia."
Jonathan Cohn, who's done some great reporting on the auto rescue in recent years, noted Romney's condemnation during the Republican primaries of using public funds for the industry. Here's what Romney said during a debate in late 2011:
"My view with regards to the bailout was that whether it was by President Bush or by President Obama, it was the wrong way to go. I said from the very beginning they should go through a managed bankruptcy process, a private bankruptcy process. We have capital markets and bankruptcy. ... My plan, we would have had a private sector bailout with the private sector restructuring and bankruptcy with the private sector guiding the direction as opposed to what we had with government playing its heavy hand."
As a substantive matter, this didn't make any sense -- capital markets were frozen at the height of the crisis, and the money simply wasn't there. It was either the government or nothing. Last night, Romney argued the opposite of his position, saying he supported auto makers getting "government help."
By any measure, this isn't just a flip-flop; it's failing to tell the truth about a flip-flop.
And in terms of political salience, all of this only serves as a reminder to the nation -- most notably some folks in Ohio -- that if Romney had his way, the American auto industry would have collapsed, waiting for private investment that would have never come.
Red Herring and Strawmen. MSNBC  gets caught with yet another piece of propaganda. First, they don't even reference the NYTimes Op Ed piece from the debate that the EDITORS TITLED.  Let Detroit Go Bankrupt   or even mention that Fiat took over Chrysler in the frozen capital market. The Main Stream Media and Barack Obama don't dwell in facts or truths, they perpetuate lies and push agendas.

Fact-check: Text of 2008 Romney Op-Ed Debunks Obama’s Auto-Bailout Attack

Fact-check: Text of 2008 Romney op-ed debunks Obama’s auto-bailout attack

Excerpts from:  Matthew Boyle Investigative Reporter at The Daily Caller  10/23/2012
The text of a 2008 op-ed on the auto-bailout by Republican nominee Mitt Romney debunks attacks by President Barack Obama, who accused Romney of changing his position during the third and final presidential debate on Monday night.

 Debate 3 - Barack Obama and Mitt Romney Florida 2012
The Romney op-ed both candidates were referring to ran in The New York Times on Nov. 18, 2008 under the headline “Let Detroit Go Bankrupt,” and appears to support Romney’s position.
In the op-ed, Romney said he thought the government should play a role in handling a managed bankruptcy. “The American auto industry is vital to our national interest as an employer and as a hub for manufacturing,” Romney wrote in the op-ed. “A managed bankruptcy may be the only path to the fundamental restructuring the industry needs. It would permit the companies to shed excess labor, pension and real estate costs. The federal government should provide guarantees for post-bankruptcy financing and assure car buyers that their warranties are not at risk.”
“In a managed bankruptcy, the federal government would propel newly competitive and viable automakers, rather than seal their fate with a bailout check,” Romney added.
Under the Obama administration, Detroit still went bankrupt. General Motors and Chrysler sank into bankruptcy, but instead of having open bankruptcy proceedings in a court, the Obama White House ran the proceedings. Many people won as a result of the bailout, but many others lost, too. Perhaps the biggest loss was that of the 20,000 non-union Delphi salaried retirees, who lost their pensions and benefits programs as they were headed into retirement as a result of a Treasury Department and White House decision

Bias NOT Debatable - Candy Crowley Backs Obama's Libya Spin

The Leftist media has had their hands full trying to spin Obama's statements to reflect reality or the truth. During the Debate on 10/16/2012  the moderator wrongly backs Obama's statement that Benghazi was a terror attack,  ruining Mitt Romney's debate momentum and attempting to hurt his credibility. First, Candy Crowley talking to David Axelrod on Sept 30  Crowley to Axelrod: Obama Never Said Benghazi Attack Was 'Act of Terror'   Here is Candy Crowley just after the debate talking about Libya and that moment......

 CNN's Candy Crowley on moderating second presidential debate

O'BRIEN: Very, very interesting, I though. You told everybody at the beginning there's no clapping, turn off your BlackBerrys, turn off your cell phones. There was a moment when people clapped. Actually sort of two moments under the same question, which is about Libya. They were just talking about it, Wolf and Anderson, just a moment ago. And it was when the president said that he stood in the Rose Garden and said this was an act of terror, and the actually quote that he said on that day, the day after the act was, "no acts of terror will ever shake the resolve of this great nation," and went on from there.

In a way you had to fact-check on both sides.

CROWLEY: Right. Well, I knew that the president has said act of terror, because this has kind of come up before, and also I heard him that day. And what Mitt Romney was going for, and I think where he tripped himself up was that he picked that one wrong fact. The president did call it or refer to it in some ways an act of terror, and so it felt as though - and the president kept looking at me going, you know, and I thought, well, I did know then, I said, you know, he did call it an act of terror. That's what caused the applause.

O'BRIEN: But then this side over here –

CROWLEY: Right. On this side over here, which is clearly the –

O'BRIEN: Then you fact-checked again.

CROWLEY: And then I said, but you are correct that they didn't know for a couple of weeks that it wasn't related to the tape and there was no riot outside the consulate, so - and that side of the room clapped.

 Did Barack Obama call it an 'act of terror' ?   No. he called it an attack and 9/11 an act of terror. The Media uses any words but  'act of terror' in the same segment in regards to his statement. The MSM immediately pushed the youtube video protest MEME from the 'disavowed' Embassy Statement.  The LEFTISTS are rewriting history in real-time to cover for the Obama Administration.

Top part of speech edited..... the rest should show context of the remarks in question   ......
Along with his colleagues, Chris died in a country that is still striving to emerge from the recent experience of war. Today, the loss of these four Americans is fresh, but our memories of them linger on.  I have no doubt that their legacy will live on through the work that they did far from our shores and in the hearts of those who love them back home.
Of course, yesterday was already a painful day for our nation as we marked the solemn memory of the 9/11 attacks.  We mourned with the families who were lost on that day.  I visited the graves of troops who made the ultimate sacrifice in Iraq and Afghanistan at the hallowed grounds of Arlington Cemetery, and had the opportunity to say thank you and visit some of our wounded warriors at Walter Reed.  And then last night, we learned the news of this attack in Benghazi.
As Americans, let us never, ever forget that our freedom is only sustained because there are people who are willing to fight for it, to stand up for it, and in some cases, lay down their lives for it.  Our country is only as strong as the character of our people and the service of those both civilian and military who represent us around the globe.
No acts of terror will ever shake the resolve of this great nation, alter that character, or eclipse the light of the values that we stand for.  Today we mourn four more Americans who represent the very best of the United States of America.  We will not waver in our commitment to see that justice is done for this terrible act.  And make no mistake, justice will be done.
But we also know that the lives these Americans led stand in stark contrast to those of their attackers.  These four Americans stood up for freedom and human dignity.  They should give every American great pride in the country that they served, and the hope that our flag represents to people around the globe who also yearn to live in freedom and with dignity.
We grieve with their families, but let us carry on their memory, and let us continue their work of seeking a stronger America and a better world for all of our children.
Thank you.  May God bless the memory of those we lost and may God bless the United States of America.

Democrat Voter Fraud - The Usual Suspects and Connections

Voter fraud complaint filed against Fla. Democrats

Oct. 5 8:27 PM EDT
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Florida officials are reviewing allegations of voter registration fraud against the state Democratic Party.
The Florida Department of State on Friday confirmed that it has forwarded complaints about alleged voter registration fraud against the Democrats and two other groups to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. The groups are the Florida New Majority Education Fund and  the National Council of La Raza/Democracia USA.
Neither state agency would comment on the extent of the allegations or on how many voter registration forms it involves.
A party spokeswoman said the Democrats were unaware of any complaints that they had registered someone who was ineligible. Spokesman Brannon Jordan said party volunteers go through extensive training.
The Florida Department of Law Enforcement earlier this week launched an investigation into alleged fraud involving a company hired by the state's Republican Party.
Florida New Majority Education Fund - Florida New Majority (FNM) is a 501©4 organization that organizes, educates, and mobilizes communities in Florida to win equity and fairness throughout the state. Founded in 2009, FNM overcomes the history of racism and division in the Sunshine State.  *Search results for funding information on this group is almost nonexistent.

The leftist-racist-organization La Raza should need no introduction.  In the Spanish language the term Raza translates to "race"  Yes, the group is titled "the race". This group represents Illegal and FRAUD at many levels hence their alliance and allegiance to the Democrat Party, the party of corruption. Obama conveniently didn't pass immigration to benefit 'the racists' in his first term with the intention of using this voter block for REELECTION.  Judging by poll results, the pawns are following right along and are expected to disproportionately back Obama. La Raza needs the racecard, so does Barack Obama and the Democrats. The great DIVIDERS. Supporters of Obama fund the RACEHUSTLE 2012

The left wing  allegations of widespread fraud by the Republicans in Florida. The outrage that the Republicans 'intentionally' hired that company to commit voter fraud.  Less than a week later, the Democrat voter fraud machine and direct part of the coalition has been exposed yet again, with little to ZERO coverage in the mainstream media.

The Mitch McConnell MEME - A.K.A. The Obstructionist Republicans

Mitch McConnell by Brittany Zagoria
24 Sep 2012

Back in December 2010, two full years into Barack Obama’s presidency, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) remarked, “Our top political priority over the next two years should be to deny President Obama a second term.” He was speaking after two years of Obama ramming through exponential spending increases, Obamacare, and a feckless foreign policy that had crippled United States policy in the Middle East. He also stated that he didn’t want Obama to fail, but to change.

Yet now the left uses McConnell’s words to show that Republicans were the true obstacle to Obama’s success. The truth is that Obama’s legislative success is the single greatest obstacle to his presidential success – his policies have been disastrous. But the media and the Democrats want to blame “partisanship” rather than the President.
So they lie about McConnell’s statement. Instead of placing it in the context of two years of Obama experience in steamrolling Republicans, they pretend that McConnell said it at the outset of the Obama presidency.
Yesterday, Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL) told Candy Crowley of CNN, “I think the President didn’t anticipate when the Republican Senate Leader Mitch McConnell said my highest priority, highest priority is not to deal with the recession. Not to deal with the cost of health care. Not to deal with what’s happening on Wall Street.” This is sheer sophistry. That was McConnell’s top priority for the first two years of Obama’s presidency, until Obama proved himself a radical ideologue who wasn’t interested in solving those problems – and proved himself to be the biggest obstacle to solving those problems.
Former Pennsylvanian Gov. Ed Rendell has also lied about the McConnell comments. “I can't ever recall a newly elected president being faced with the leader of the other party's caucus saying ‘Our No. 1 priority is to make this president a one-term president,’” Rendell said. That McConnell would say that in the first nine months of Barack Obama's tenure is absolutely stunning, disgraceful, disgusting--you name the term.’” It might have been – if McConnell had said it. But Rendell lied.
Obama himself has tried to push this meme. “When I first came into office,” he said on 60 Minutes, “the head of the Senate Republicans said, ‘My number one priority is making sure President Obama's a one-term president.’” That’s a plain lie. But Obama repeated it in front of David Letterman, who was too busy licking the president’s boots to ask him about it.
McConnell never said what Democrats attribute to him, and he never said it when they said he said it. They need to misdirect from Obama’s failed record, and so they’ll twist and turn McConnell’s words to achieve their own ends.

When Hate is just Stupid

Area woman ‘terrified’ after swastikas found painted on driveway

By MICHAEL N. PRICE 10/05/2012
Scary or Stupid?

WEST PIKELAND — A 75-year-old Jewish woman is looking for help from law enforcement officials after someone entered her property and painted two swastikas on her driveway.
Laura Soto, who lives alone on a large property on Eagle Farms Road, contacted police after her caretaker discovered the discriminatory symbols on Sept. 29. A barn was also broken into and other outbuildings were rummaged through. Only a weedwhacker was stolen, Soto said.
Soto said the incident left her frightened and looking for support from the West Pikeland Police Department. She called the department after the incident and asked them to conduct an investigation. She spoke an officer over the phone, she said, and felt confident that her police department would do everything they could to help her.

“I’m 75 years old, I remember what a swastika means,” Soto said. “I live alone, I’m terrified.”
When she called several days later to check on the investigation’s progress Soto heard the last thing she expected from her police department.
“I was told they are not doing an investigation,” Soto said. “I was told there was nothing to investigate.”
Soto said there was a similar incident several years ago in a neighborhood just across the street. A swastika was painted on a driveway, and, in the days that followed that incident, West Pikeland police officers canvassed the neighborhood to knock on doors in search of witnesses. Eventually, a pair of teenagers responsible for the incident was found, largely due to the efforts of police officers.

A 'Swastika' painted on a sidewalk reported by the media eager for a sensational crime story. No doubt a 'hate-crime' targeting the elderly would add to the outrage. Does the fact that the painting of the symbol is completely backwards, a fact missed by the victim, police and reporters concern you? It will most likely be logged as a hate-crime instead of some knuckleheads or punks targeting an old lady with the most 'shocking' message or tag they could conjure up. The coverage just reinforces the 'shock' value.  Just further proof that the race-hustle industry has programmed the masses for an instantaneous and knee-jerk response to images and stories of these 'mind-crimes' without question. Programming done daily in the left leaning media to keep your reflexes sharp.

"I continue to find this entire line of attack deeply strange. For one thing, Sununu is relying on an odd anti-Obama book that has struggled badly to stand up to scrutiny.
For another, Obama wasn't "timid on the first two or three opportunities." On the contrary, it was Donald Rumsfeld who called off missions to get bin Laden he considered too risky."
Concludes with.....
"But from a purely strategic perspective, what does Sununu hope to gain from resuming this fight? How does it help Romney to remind everyone that Obama took an enormous risk when he ordered the strike, but he made the tough call and it paid off?"

 Now we examine the highlighted  sentence above and follow the link to called off missions  to get bin laden and what do we find?  The link points to AQ leadership and Bin Laden is NOT on the LIST
But Glenn Thrush highlights another tidbit that seems important: six years ago, the U.S. was poised to launch a raid in Pakistan against al Qaeda, but Rumsfeld called it off. It was, he decided at the time, too risky.
A secret military operation in early 2005 to capture senior members of Al Qaeda in Pakistan's tribal areas was aborted at the last minute after top Bush administration officials decided it was too risky and could jeopardize relations with Pakistan, according to intelligence and military officials.
The target was a meeting of Qaeda leaders that intelligence officials thought included Ayman al-Zawahri, Osama bin Laden's top deputy and the man believed to run the terrorist group's operations.
But the mission was called off after Donald H. Rumsfeld.... Members of a Navy Seals unit in parachute gear had already boarded C-130 cargo planes in Afghanistan when the mission was canceled, said a former senior intelligence official involved in the planning.
The article is more than flawed and I just highlighted the most glaring example of an outright LIE.
@MSNBC cannot be considered a news outlet by any measure and the consumers of this pablum deserve ridicule and scorn.
