We raised more than a few eyebrows this week by reporting that President Obama lied during his announcement that Osama Bin Laden had been killed. However, the liberal Politico website agrees and calls this a “Flip-Flop.”

Politico ran a list on June 1st, 2009 of the Obama flip-flops “you didn’t know about.” The post listed only a few of the hundreds of flip-flops we list on our Official Obama Administration Scandals List.
Now, we got blasted from some for our story pointing out that Obama had flip-flopped on the importance of catching Osama Bin Laden. I trust all who blasted us, also stopped by to blast Politico. (Yes, I know they didn’t.)
The only thing that seems to have offended some is the timing of our article, coming only minutes after the Obama announcement. The truth isn’t always convenient or comfortable. However, it still is the truth.
I again quote Politico from their article they promoted as the flip-flops you don’t know about…
“During the presidential debates last year, Obama declared that capturing or killing Osama bin Laden “has to be our biggest national security priority.” In his first TV interview after winning the election, he said the terrorist leader was “not just a symbol. He’s also the operational leader of an organization that is planning attacks against U.S. targets,” and that the additional troops being sent to Afghanistan would hunt him down because “capturing or killing bin Laden is a critical aspect of stamping out Al Qaeda.” Bin Laden’s significance to Obama dissipated during the transition. By the time Obama gave another interview in early January, he said killing or capturing bin Laden was not necessary to “meet our goal of protecting America.” A few months later, when he announced his Afghanistan troop surge, he made no reference to the hunt for bin Laden.”
When you’re right, you’re right. Even the liberal Politico agrees.
