AS DISGRACED CIA DIRECTOR and former commanding officer of the entire US Afghanistan nation-building boondoggle, DAVID PETREAUS, was scheduled to testify on the Benghazi crisis next week, the vultures have begun circling. Now it appears he’s bowed out of the picture, and will not testify although there is nothing preventing him from doing so. Director Petraeus resigned Friday after admitting marital infidelity. There is surely much more to this resignation saga than this decorated military man making bouncy boo boo with his fawning sexy young autobiographer.
Some vain religious actor in Florida is not the threat. The American policy of trusting Islamic players has always presented a clear and present danger to American lives, and thus these men of valor must always be cautious.
Petreaus lost this writer's respect when he complained that the Florida pastor Terry Jones was endangering American lives with his threats to burn a Qu'ran. That whine was petty and unbecoming of an American officer, particularly the top soldier in charge. Soldiers in Afghanistan live in a state of fear. By definition their lives are alwas at risk, and in severe danger. Natives who have been befriended, paid handsomely, turn on these soldiers with deadly force whenever the chance presents itself. Sure. They can honestly mimic greedy or needy humans first, but they are Islamic tribalists second, and that's all there is. Islam speaks to their core. Kafirs with their strange ways do not, except when it is to their immediate advantage. Some vain religious actor in Florida is not the threat. The American policy of trusting Islamic players has always presented a clear and present danger to American lives, and thus these men of valor must always be cautious. Grow up, I said of the General when I heard that ridiculous remark of his. Now it seems the great man has more than cowardly emotions, but stirs beneath the uniform as well.
The whole lot of simmering Obama scandals must see the light of day as they come to a boil. Fast and Furious. Benghazi. Oh, despair! This radical administration must be forced to fall upon its own sword, if America stands any chance of survival. But that presumes the Republican House finally grows a pair, and fights tooth and nail for the US Constitution and the rule of law...
On May 2, 2011, official history contends SEAL Team 6 infiltrated a terrorist compound in Pakistan and killed Al-Queda leader Osama bin Laden. Okay. So good, so far.
All across this divided nation, Americans cheered the news that one of the world's largest mass murderers had been brought to justice. Unfortunately, there's a tragedy in this story, as there seems to be with most of Obama's plotlinesand it's being ignored by Congress. In the weeks leading up to bin Laden's death, Pakistani Doctor Shakil Afridi risked his life to provide us with the information that directly helped SEAL Team 6 find and kill Osama bin Laden.
Dr. Afridi should be rewardedor at the very leastcongratulated for his efforts. But he's been imprisoned, brutally tortured and charged with treason by Pakistan's Inter-Service Intelligence (ISI). It's an outrage that Pakistan is holding Dr. Afridi for the crime of helping America.
And it's an outrage the United States continues to send over $2 BILLION in taxpayer money to Pakistan each year. We must get this jizya stopped
To hear that AG Eric Holder might be on his way out is good news, if only a rumor at this stage of the big shuffle apparently under way. Out with the bad journalism of the leftist media and in with the sunshine and the light...
Tar and feather the scoundrels, liars of a feather!
