REVEALED: Obama Could Have Rescued James Foley But Delayed For A Mind-Blowing Reason

A top-secret Pentagon mission to try to rescue captured American journalist James Foley was reportedly delayed some 30 days, while President Obama weighed the political consequences of either success or failure…and calculated about timing for a high-profile photo op…and played half-a-dozen rounds of golf. Foley was beheaded by an ISIS terrorist, a barbaric act shown in a horrific video.

The Sunday Times reports that Pentagon sources question whether a quicker authorization of the U.S. special forces operation might have saved Foley’s life.

“Pentagon sources said Foley and the others might well have been rescued but Obama, concerned about the ramifications of US troops being killed or captured in Syria, took too long to authorize the mission,” according to a report in The Sunday Times.

Obama had other plans for the month of July:

“However, it also seems worth noting that the eventual timing of the mission may have made for a nice July 4th weekend announcement for Obama had the mission succeeded. Instead, Obama played golf on July 5th, as well as an additional six times in the month he is said to have spent agonizing over his decision, the delay of which may have cost journalist Foley his life.

“Anthony Shaffer, a former lieutenant-colonel in US military intelligence who worked on covert operations, said: “I’m told it was almost a 30-day delay from when they said they wanted to go to when he finally gave the green light. They were ready to go in June to grab the guy [Foley] and they weren’t permitted.”

Reportedly, Obama was concerned about being “Carterized” — if the Foley mission failed, that he would be associated with former President Carter’s bungled rescue attempt during the Iranian hostage crisis.

  3. This poor man could have been rescue and this azz-hole in chief went on to play golf, he was more worry about his stupid image then the life of Mr. Foley. May God dam this SOB soon, the Country can NOT survive another two years with this POS in our white house

    and what is this idiot in chief worry about? he has surpassed that other idiot Jimmy Carter as the WORST President in US History and to add insult to injury, he is NOT a US citizen and most of the Country knows that he is a Fraud.

    He would not like to rescue an American, he hates all Americans..He delayed on purpose. He had no plan to see him rescued…His crime should get his own head cut off…only fair for helping all the head choppers…Let us jail him and then try and execute in like manner preferably on world TV. America is too wimpy to do it, but we should…
