Report: Special Forces Rescue Attempt of James Foley Failed Because Obama Kept Dragging His Feet
Our gutless Dear Leader strikes again! The news broke this week about a failed Special Forces operation to rescue James Foley and other American hostages — and it turns out that the reason for the failure was because Obama took to long to give the OK.
Thursday morning, Shaffer appeared on WMAL radio in Washington, D.C., to discuss the ISIS execution of American journalist James Foley earlier this week. He told me and co-host Brian Wilson that the recently revealed rescue attempt led by Special Forces earlier this summer failed because President Obama was slow to give the go-ahead:
I’m hearing from my friends in the Pentagon, they are giving him every single option way ahead of time. And let me give you a little secret here: The reason that raid into Syria failed to get Foley and those guys was because the president drug his feet. He waited too long, the intel got stale, and by the time we actually gave the “go” word it failed because we just didn’t react quick enough.
Obama seemingly doesn’t understand that part of the job of being president is to make hard decisions quickly. Of course, perhaps the reason that he’s unable to do that is because he’s completely and utterly lacking in any experience that would qualify him for the job.
