A foreign correspondent reporter with the New York Times has been snooping around the files surrounding the death of Osama Bin Laden and the actual size of al Queda. What they found was that both claims were grossly exaggerated by the Obama administration in order to win the 2012 election.
In fact, what the administration claimed as a “victory”, barely scratched the surface of the real threat. Thanks to President Trump, releasing the hundreds of thousands of documents in connection to the Obama administrations”success”, we now have proof of the sham.

A top foreign correspondent at the New York Times said Friday that the Obama administration deliberately downplayed al Qaeda’s strength in the run-up to the 2012 presidential election.
“The overall narrative that I think was being pushed to the press, and if you look back at the editorials that were done when that trove came out, was an image of bin Laden isolated, he had lost control of this group,” Rukmini Callimachi said during an event at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, referring to the 17 hand-picked documents released by the Obama administration in May of 2012.
Her remarks triggered the following question from Kim Dozier, a former top correspondent for the Associated Press and CBS, and current executive editor of the Cipher Brief: “Do you think that was something that was kept from the public’s view because it revealed that there had to be reams of communication going back and forth, which means U.S. intelligence, Western intelligence, was missing this?”
“Think back to when bin Laden was killed. It was 2011, it was right before a major campaign season. I don’t want to underplay the role that the killing of Osama bin Laden had,” said Callimachi. “But I think that that was theorized into something much bigger.”
