From Daily News:
Barack Obama cancelled three operations to kill Osama bin Laden before finally going ahead with the mission at the insistence of Hillary Clinton, according to a new book.
The explosive allegation is contained in an expose by journalist Rich Miniter, who argues that the White House’s carefully-crafted narrative of Obama as a decisive leader who dispatched the al-Qaeda leader despite the doubts of advisers is a myth.
Leading from Behind: The Reluctant President and the Advisors Who Decide for Him will be published on Tuesday. Excerpts have been viewed by Mail Online.
The killing of bin Laden is at the centre of Obama’s re-election campaign and is likely to be highlighted yet again by his aides on the eleventh anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks next month. Obama has already come under fire from former SEALs for trumpeting his role in the raid.
Until now, no one has claimed that he was reluctant even to launch it.
Miniter portrays Clinton as the main force behind killing bin Laden and contends that the prevaricating Obama has been in thrall to a number of dominant women – Clinton, top adviser Valerie Jarrett and his wife Michelle.

The FBI and Secret Service are also involved in the investigation and the local and state chapters of the NAACP are speaking out against the crime.
Ernest Pinnix, 66, reported to the sheriff’s office Wednesday that his auto repair shop had been vandalized sometime overnight.
Pinnix spoke publicly against the re-erection of a Confederate soldier monument in downtown Reidsville. The monument was damaged in a wreck in 2011. The Reidsville City Council recently voted to rebuild the monument in a cemetery.
Vandals spray painted “the statue’s coming back” and “F--- Obama” on the front of Pinnix’s shop on Zeb Road, which has a Gibsonville mailing address, said Lt. Frank Rose with the Caswell County Sheriff’s Office. They also slashed the tires and keyed the paint of a tow truck at the address.
About $4,600 in damage was reported at the business.
Local investigators contacted the FBI and Secret Service about the vandalism due to the mention of the president, Rose said.
Rose said the vandalism is being investigated as a possible hate crime, and that detectives have few clues about the crime at this point.
