In Leading From Behind, Richard Miniter exposes the following:
  • In the popular press President Obama is lionized as a dogged marathon runner, relentlessly going the distance to pass national health care reform. Behind the scenes, the dogged marathoner who risked political fortunes, and paid a steep political price for universal health insurance coverage, was actually House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
  • Obama's first trips to the Middle East were to two Muslim states, Turkey and Egypt, and he had not even included a courtesy stop to Israel on either trip.
  • Obama delayed and canceled the mission to kill Osama bin Laden three times and then committed an intelligence blunder that allowed dozens of high-level members of al Qaeda to escape.
  • Who shaped Obama? Four strong-minded women: his mother, his wife, his mentor, Valerie Jarrett & his Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton.
  • In the bin Laden raid, there was no "40-minute fire fight," as the White House claimed. Few shots were fired & the mission was completed in less than 20 minutes.
  • The DoJ has provided no accounting for the more than 2,000 missing guns—not to mention grenade parts that it "lost track" of, regarding Operation Fast and Furious.
