A legendary reporter has claimed the Obama administration lied about key details surrounding the death of Osama bin Laden. Glenn gave the details of TheBlaze report on radio this morning - but you may be surprised by his reaction.
This spring I contacted [retired Pakistani general and former head of Pakistani intelligence Asad] Durrani and told him in detail what I had learned about the bin Laden assault from American sources: that bin Laden had been a prisoner of the ISI at the Abbottabad compound since 2006; that [top Pakistani military leaders] Kayani and Pasha knew of the raid in advance and had made sure that the two helicopters delivering the Seals to Abbottabad could cross Pakistani airspace without triggering any alarms; that the CIA did not learn of bin Laden’s whereabouts by tracking his couriers, as the White House has claimed since May 2011, but from a former senior Pakistani intelligence officer who betrayed the secret in return for much of the $25 million reward offered by the US, and that, while Obama did order the raid and the Seal team did carry it out, many other aspects of the administration’s account were false.
"I personally think that it's okay. I mean, the way I'm reading it, he wasn't telling us exactly the truth because he was trying to protect Pakistan from more terrorist bombings," Glenn said.
"If that's the big lie, that's good. That's protecting an ally," Pat said.
"That's what the president should be doing," Glenn said.
