Weight & Paperweight: Osama-Benghazi

28 Feb : 23:17 Category: Benghazi Attack

Consider how well we know the group that went in to kill Osama Bin Laden, Seal Team 6. The photo of Obama watching on video as the killing of Bin Laden takes place, everyone in a seat, all the players we'd expect there, the appearance of a long pursued effort coming to fruition. Yet we never see a body, we are told Bin Laden's religious beliefs were upheld in burying him at sea. Of course many details left out, someone from Hollywood makes a movie about the whole thing, even releasing it before the November 2012 elections.

Celebrations galore, even republicans (some of which are slightly Conservative), concede that Obama has done a great service for America, for the world, in killing the ultimate person behind 911.

Ignored, is that if these had been the facts for George Bush catching Bin Laden, or any Republican President (haven't had a truly Conservative one for a very long time) the following would have occurred:

1) Daily KOS, Huffington Post, and others, would have been citing someone explaining how this is abnormal, followed by explanations of the vehicles that left the ship, explaining which ones could have held enough security personnel, and then, finally, saying outright that it appears Osama Bin Laden's death was faked so that the CIA could waterboard him with no one worrying about his civil rights.

2) The same publications would be railing against George Bush for failing to have an international force to get Bin Laden, then explaining how we had no right to be in Pakistan. Some of these would publish lists of the names of the soldiers on Seal Team 6, hoping banks and others would deny services to them for having fooled the American People into thinking Bin Laden is dead and proving that our military is just a bunch of thugs, hired guns for the wealthy elite who made sure Bin Laden was blamed anyway because 911 was an inside job. In fact, this last “fact” would have come up in the efforts under “1” above, to explain how the whole thing is a lie, but here it would be the idea “we killed an innocent person, claiming it to be the body of Bin Laden.”

3) Questions would be brought, couched in perfect “gotcha” fashion, in absolute suspicion of the Republican administration and everyone in government who doesn't overtly (by party) represent the Progressive view every time any of them appeared on a political talk show in the organized broadcast media for the next 3-6 months, even a year. Chris Matthews would explain how wrong it was to kill Bin Laden due to the useful information we could have gotten out of him, only to then take that back with a “well at least he escaped Cheney's torture...(orchestrated intentional pause achieving dramatic effect as a break in cadence, coinciding with a few chews of his gum and appearing to lean down slightly as though scratching a leg tingle)...waterboarding.” And everyone who was for the death of Bin Laden would be fighting with those who were arguing every jot and tittle of what was reported with suspicion of every word. Some would argue “the death of one more doesn't bring back the 3000 who died 9-11-2011.”

Yet, instead, because a Socialist President with Communist Dictatorial Leanings killed Bin Laden we have a celebrated execution, though wrongfully celebrated. The death of Bin Laden was not celebrated because he was an enemy to the American People, to Freedom and what America stands for, to our way of life and all that we hold dear, to our government even, but because Bin Laden's death at the hand of Obama would, by this sensationalism, become the event impossible to be used in a negative way due to this overwhelming barrage of coverage of it in relation to Barack Obama, showing his intense involvement via the photos of his watching the last minutes, some records indicating Obama went against his staff's recommendations – how quaint....And how dramatically convenient.

I get away with saying all this for the simple fact of 9-11-2012 (of how little is known of what happened on the ground, how the records are kept from us unless discussed in negotiating the ratification of the President's cabinet members, not because Republicans are mixing things up but because a President who cannot find the same glamorous storyline available in any way regarding what he didn't do, how Benghazi was a half-hour meeting because he had a Presidential Campaign) cannot be swept under the rug entirely because the very media that sold us on the death of Bin Laden can't even spin the death of 4 Americans on foreign soil as “a great feat of Barack Obama,” especially when the stories from the beginning are replete with fabrications absolutely inconsistent with what facts we do know about what happened.

Bin Laden is a story of political weight, Benghazi, a story of political paperweight, when viewed in their affect on the outcome of Obama's re-election. Don't believe it? Get a pad and paper and write down the 10 things you absolutely know about the death of Osama Bin Laden on the left, and then the 10 things you absolutely know are true about Benghazi on the right (excluding Petraeus affair) and the clarity of how our knowledge of both incidents was determined by political weighing and nothing else will be more than obvious, unless of course you don't care if your government is denying you your right to know all of what your tax dollars are paying for.

I mean, that is the “pro” argument for when something like waterboarding or an Abu Ghraib is brought to light, but seems to be the argument conveniently ignored by the very same people who would say we should know everything. “Pro” when a Republican, particularly a Conservative one, is in office, but ignored when Bill Clinton was doing rendition, or had implemented Echelon, and now ignored again under Barack Obama, irrespective of accumulating 75+% deficit totals in 4 years of George Bush's 8, and an easy $1.5 to $2.5 trillion per year in excess of what Bill Clinton (with the help of Newt Gingrich) accomplished in his last year.

Imagine if the media were honest enough to compare Democrat presidents in a row, though we must remember Bill Clinton had 19 opportunities to kill Bin Laden before 9-11-2001 and never took the shot, maybe he, as demonstrated by Clinton's taking leadership seriously and working with Gingrich, wasn't as concerned about the political weights as Obama ALWAYS is.

Osama-Benghazi answers this question, particularly combined with a President who never scolds Harry Reid for filibustering the entire 435 members of the House by not taking up even one bill they pass since 2010... But of course, that's the Republicans, the Tea Party, FoxNews, and talk radio's fault right?

Careful What You Ask For: Benghazi & Drones Edition

23 Feb : 20:45 Category: Benghazi Attack

Some things just help define Liberalism – the collectivist, big government, government knows best, dependency mind – as a genetic defect akin to the effect of Autism only deeper, and with all the elements of religious idolatry (see http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2010/10/101027161452.htm).

This guy, Barack Obama, in the course of his 2008 campaign for president, during a debate said that he'd use diplomacy to make peace with our enemies, such as Iran, North Korea, etc. Many of us saw him as naďve and we've been proven right.

A much needed place for holding those who may wittingly or unwittingly have, know, or be reluctant to reveal, information that is related to terrorism, GITMO, continues to exist. And this is in testimony to, at best, Obama's naďveté, and at worst, that he just lied.

But we must note Obama's claimed reasons for why he said he will close GITMO “by the end of my first term” as “it is used to help recruit people into Al Qaeda.” I do not suggest or agree with closing GITMO, but I do agree with Obama that it will be used as a recruiting tool and submit that this was a known calculated risk at the time GITMO was opened.

The increase or decrease in the use of GITMO as an Islamist recruiting tool is determined by our other actions. For instance, by waging a conventional war, the enemy, the “jihadist,” assumes they keep whatever upper hand they believe they have, shifting priorities to where they feel they'll be most effective and they will choose to fight in the conventional war and speak of collateral damage atrocities allegedly caused by us in that war.

But our illustrious President Obama, Professor-Naďveté-In-Chief, exacerbates and amplifies the effect of GITMO. This is exemplified by who is President of Egypt today (their party and ideology assuming to resurrect the very same tyranny as before, by use of government power under the idea that it is just and fair because it derives from a religious order, and this takes us to the Liberal religious hypocrisy. Read on…) and by our arms given to help “rebels” carry out a revolution, only to be later found in other countries (Algeria, Mali) where long-standing allies such as France are fighting against these same rebels using our weapons. And this is after the rebels mocked the original dictatorships because the United States was “behind them” by trading with these same dictatorships – in our desire to protect our commerce abroad as required by the Constitution, the origin of the “Commander-In-Chief” power of the President (see U.S. v Lopez, Justice Thomas opinion, pg 588 regarding purpose of army and navy for commerce, http://supreme.justia.com/cases/federal/us/514/549/case.html) – to assure military capability and government stability anywhere in the world for the sole purpose of protecting America's commercial interests.

Odd how the Fast and Furious gun-walking scandal – silenced by the so-called “compromising,” “most transparent,” and “setting aside party” President of the United States, Barack Obama, who asserts executive privilege and ceases from providing the information Congress needs to complete their Constitutional role in oversight – is then emulated in the Middle East using the U.S. Military to do so on a mass scale, “in the name of humanity,” to give guns to these “rebels,” particularly in Libya, backing them only to have them use the United States as the silent partner for their rampage that leads to a new tyranny where we remain hated, if not directly in Libya then wherever else our arms “walked.” And, to be sure, the wars that so many leftists bring up regarding the history of Christianity and how it is a “religion of war, hatred, bigotry, and ignorance” demonstrate again the ailment caused by the Liberal gene defect, which, of course, is not covered by Obamacare. Liberals, and of course their allies in Islam, fail to recognize that IT TAKES AT LEAST 2 TO WAGE WAR. Leftists, with unilateral and unreasonable hate of the United States of America for being a nation founded on Individual Liberty and not collectivist dependency on tyrants, and the persistent spin of lies they've gotten away with in promoting this hate, know no bounds. Some simple research of the History of these “Christian wars” will find the Muslims to be the constant opponent, particularly with the Moors, though there is a conscious effort to “gray” their history (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moors and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talk:Moors).

This hatred of America is, again, even further encouraged and exacerbated by our “droning on” militarily. To our enemies we wage a gutless war from the sky, and demonstrate no respect for them by expecting them to be so awestruck by this dastardly deed that they will stand down. Reality is that Iran is now working on its own drones, that our actions only escalated the existing situation. I don't disagree with using drones to kill our enemies, however moderation is useful, particularly when we're killing the “information piggy banks” that may know of a cell in the United States existing for some 20 years or more and just waiting for the circumstances to trigger their taking action.

About that escalation of the existing situation... Nukes once didn't exist, then we used one to decimate Japan who was allied with Hitler and Mussolini at the time, “The Axis of Evil.” This nuke helped expedite the end of World War II with Japan's almost immediate surrender, and most Japanese, hearing his voice over the radio for the first time, learned their Emperor was not a god. Then, after the treaty to share the technology with Russia, France, England and China, there came the cold war with Russia that perpetuated a continuing escalation of nuclear arms. Of course, the hypocritical Left who ignores history can't appreciate this pattern that persists even back to the Indians wanting guns to dominate the tribes that didn't have them. The constant is that the enemy takes on the “can't beat ‘em, join ‘em” attitude and pursues the same weapon, the same technology, path. Drones would obviously be no exception to this rule, but of course, the religious left continues on with their Liberal Gene blindness to history and reason.

The Left didn't want a war, and so we're ending them, only to carry on covert, gutless, sneaky operations that only make our enemies hate us even moreso, while disturbing many long friendships as well by our operating inside another nation's borders without their permission (Americans would be livid if another country were operating kill operations on our soil).

And all of this going on while GITMO, that Obama said was a recruiting tool, remains open, Obama appearing to knowingly exacerbate this effect of GITMO, rendering an amplified and broader hate of the United States far in excess of the original calculated risk of operating GITMO. Those Bush drone strikes were used far less for the simple fact they kept the enemy from seeing us as a persistent dirty fighter who doesn't fight in the trenches but by some means that only a gutless people, “infidels,” who don't deserve their standing in the world, would carry out. Of course, this is the hypocrisy of our enemies with their IEDs and suicide mom bombers to even making these claims (see P.S. below), yet our goal by whatever tactic isn't to increase the ranks of our enemies -- right President Obama?

By his 2008 speeches and stated positions, Obama claims he mean to be the successful version of Neville Chamberlain, but now he has abandoned that position by using drones that our enemies can point to as America being more of a bully; America more of a liar in our claims of good done throughout history; America more of an oppressor who needs to be taken down – drones, as Obama is using them, create a silent layer of an imperial America ruling the world from the shadows, and dead Muslims in the streets are pointed to as the example of this fact by those Muslim Brotherhood and Al Qaeda members as well as many others. This is the net effect of wishful thinking in electing Obama in the first place and, a people not learning this lesson, to then re-elect him.

Sure, our enemies will always claim we offended them somehow and want to attack us for doing so, as our existence makes the leaders of these groups powerful. However, handing them the very tools they need to recruit mass numbers in droves only leads to attacks like Benghazi. Consider, other than that 4 Americans died September 11, 2012, what did Christopher Stevens do to deserve to be sexually assaulted (see http://www.examiner.com/article/report-u-s-ambassador-was-raped-before-he-was-murdered)? And by Muslim extremists that execute gays (see http://www.gaypatriot.net/2006/11/27/gay-holocaust-in-iran-4000-killed-and-counting/)? We had drones over Benghazi to record video and take pictures for 6 hours, but not a single one to arm and help the folks on the ground (see http://www.nypost.com/p/news/international/us_watched_as_terror_raged_AypAEEA9OK23rPf7Z5BHWO)? And in pure inexplicable fashion Leon Panetta explains “we can't just go in with no intelligence.” This ignores the fact that mortar targets had been painted by Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty which is the very intelligence Panetta wanted, that along with the drone video, there was no lack of intelligence to go in and help our fellow Americans.

I must posit that we didn't use armed drones because of the very fact they are meant to be the silent secret weapon of mass incitement of an entire community to become America's enemy in lager numbers over time, we can't have them denounced immediately by the U.N. if used as an overt means of defending one of our Embassies – the Muslims screaming over the so-called innocents we killed, and our cold reference to them as “collateral damage,” when in fact these innocents were protesting and were targeted because they actually are a threat and helped with the attack. But what do we expect to be learned by our enemies when domestically many dependent minorities scream racism over not getting their way, because such screams achieve sympathy and calls for change by those whose emotions speak louder than the fact they haven't a scintilla of experience in what they speak of. Yes, even our enemies abroad know how to “psych” the ever-EMO Liberal into sacrificing their very lives and freedom for those who see them as an infidel for doing so.

Thank you so much Mr. President for making America an even more hated nation than ever before.

Thank you for reading,

P.S. This excerpt from an article regarding Brigades in Libya should maybe help even the Liberal comprehend how Obama's drone police is “the ultimate recruiting tool” for America's enemies:

“The video released by the Brigades in June showed nighttime explosions around the consulate, interlaced with footage of Osama bin Laden and al-Zawahiri, along with images from the 9/11 attacks. At the time the Brigades claimed it had launched the attack in response to the first reports of al-Libi's death in a drone strike in the tribal areas of Pakistan.” -- Emphasis mine, http://edition.cnn.com/2012/09/12/world/africa/libya-attack-jihadists/index.html.
