Obama 'Canceled Missions To Kill Bin Laden Three Times After Getting Cold Feet - Until Hillary Clinton Stepped In,' Claims Explosive New Book

Toby Harnden at the British newspaper the Daily Mail offers excerpts from a new book by Richard Miniter that attacks the idea that President Obama was a decisive leader who "killed" Osama bin Laden.

Barrack 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.
