This will be really difficult news for our conservative readers to believe, so hold on to your hats: President Barack H. Obama lied to the American people.
We’ll give you a quick minute to regain your composure. Okay, break’s over.
You might recall during the 2012 re-election campaign, Obama continually argued that Al Qaeda was being ‘decimated’.
But there’s one problem: it wasn’t at all true. Newly-released documents from bin Laden’s hideout in Pakistan reveal that in fact Al Qaeda was far from being decimated.
The organization was actually growing at a fairly fast pace.
What’s worse is it was this rhetoric that he used to justify pulling troops out of Iraq, which then the takeover by ISIS.
Here’s more from PJ Media…
“Bin Laden is dead and GM is alive” was a favorite mantra of the Obama campaign during the 2012 election. The implication was that al-Qaeda was “decimated,” as President Obama said several times.
But the recent release of documents taken from Osama bin Laden’s Abbottabad hideout shows that al-Qaeda, far from being “decimated,” was, in fact, growing even stronger.
The information was deliberately withheld from the American people by President Obama, who released just a few pages of documents in May of 2012, carefully selected to jibe with the administration’s narrative on al-Qaeda.
The only thing really surprising here is the lengths to which Obama went to justify pulling troops from Iraq — that he would risk so much just to please his liberal base. Intelligence in this case was cynically manipulated to paint a false picture of American security.
