A Case Study In Incompetence
New York Post, by Editorial

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 10/28/2012 5:06:27 AM

Myriad are the failures of the Obama administration, but none is more tragic, or more frightening, or more foreboding of catastrophe than the appalling mishandling of the Sept. 11 terrorist attack on the US Consulate in Benghazi. Details continue to leak, but it’ll be hard to top the bombshell from Fox News at week’s end reporting that repeated urgent requests for military help during the attack were summarily denied — for hours. In those hours, former Navy SEAL Tyrone Woods was killed after he chose to disobey an order to “stand down” — and rushed to aid his fellow Americans.

...I get a sense that OUTRAGE is building with many. The Sunday talk shows should be most interesting, setting a tone to go into the last week before election...

...steadfast and focused is the order of the day...all else will fall into place...

Not only that, but General Ham was relieved of his command over the African military presence because he didn't want to stand down.

Chain of command is one thing, but we put scores of Germans on trial for obeying orders they should not have.

'Equally offensive was the bizarre remark at the same event by a “loud and boisterous” Vice President Joe Biden, who reportedly asked Woods, “Did your son always have balls the size of cue balls?”'

A new low from Joe BiteME.

Obama is not interested in helping Americans, especially white Americans. His only real purpose in being President is to bring America to its knees financially and he is executing a well thought out plan to accomplish that.

This administration will fall to a blow-out defeat at the polls in a few days, and then the vermin at the heart of the odious caricature of the once proud Democrat party, along with their slobbering ideologue fan club in the Jurassic media, need to exit stage left.

America has allowed the Marxist/Communist/Socialist cabal their turn. It's time to return to the Founders' vision, the one that gave us the greatest experiment in human freedom in history.

It has been a long nightmare, but lesson done, lesson learned, let's go home.

Who is really surprised by the incompetence and arrogance? Al Qaeda on the rise just didn't fit into Obama's political international narrative. Isn't bin Laden dead and Barack killed him after-all?

ANY move to help or save these men would show the lies of that narrative. Besides, dead ambassadors tell no tales.

How many of those that died were black again? Michelle has been said by a former secret service agent at the White House to be a closet racist. Do you think her hubby is really that much different?

Biden is one heart-beat away from the presidency and would be again if Obama is re-elected. He seems to be in the beginning stages of dementia. That is scary.

Reagan's decisive and courageous action in Grenada:

Contrast Obama's passivity with Ronald Reagan's decisive intervention almost thirty years ago. When trouble erupted in Grenada trapping eight hundred medical students, Reagan ignored warnings that sending troops would be too dangerous abd sent in the Marine's for a successful rescue operation. That's leadership that protects Americans.

The whiff of sulphur coming out of this White House is choking the life out of this country.

But the failure to respond — leaving an American diplomat and his security team to their fate — defies comprehension.

Imagine what a re-elected Obama with his "private security force" he promised he'd form would do to American citizens, now that we know he's got no problems with callously letting Americans overseas, our military and unborn babies die for his political agenda and for his aspirations to be Dictator For Life.

Rather than incompetence, this may be a case study in cowardice. Remember that Hillary was part of the Clinton administration who insisted that the military could not be used if there was any risk of loss of life. Thus they ordered the military to keep above a certain altitude when flying bombing runs in Bosnia / Kosovo, although the accuracy of the bombers were severely compromised. So she is very risk adverse. And she was right there as a big part of the decision-making process. Valerie is obviously risk adverse also, based on what we learned of her advice not to go after bin Laden. And Obama displayed signs of moral cowardice in the Illinois senate when he would just vote "present." This all smacks of moral and physical cowardice. Panetta looked very uncomfortable defending the decision to not go for the rescue. Of course, if he had any moral courage, he would resign his office immediately. But he is a more loyal Democrat than he is an American.

As more and more information gets out about this Bengahzi business, it's clear that criminal activity has been committed. As such, it should be fully investigated and charges brought against those who have committed said acts. And prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. Of course, action like this would require an AG and DOJ and a federal prosecutor that has those male body parts that are as big as cue balls. And it is/would require someone in the WH to initiate that investigation.

I hope and pray that Mitt Romney, when he is elected, will do the right thing and start the wheels of justice turning. This is something that should not be swept under the rug simply because Obozo lost the election. Americans DIED because of their actions. And I've heard all my life that NO one is exempt from the law. That should include former presidents (and any other high ranking politicos).

I don't know where to put this, so I will post here and hope it's okay. I can't even believe what I just heard at my black Baptist church. The sermon topic was "Holding Fast to the Truth" from II Timothy 1:13.

About halfway through the sermon, our pastor began to explain that, in our generation the definition of "truth" is changing. It is now based on opinion, not on the Bible. And then he began to explain that as Christians, we must be committed to the fact that the truths in the Bible don't change. Among these truths are the fact that killing babies in the womb is wrong. Marriage between men and men and between women and women is wrong. Then he went on to talk about the election.

He said that, yes, this election is about the poor, but unborn babies are the poorest of the poor. They have no voice. We have a chance to speak for them, and if we do not, judgment awaits. He said that blacks were born black and were treated as property with no rights. By God's grace, black people been given rights. He said that gays who try to say that their struggle is the same as the black struggle against slavery are simply wrong. Then he said that one party is for killing babies in the womb and for gay marriage. The candidate of the other party is a Mormon and changes his position all the time. But in this case, he said, we have to choose the lesser of two evils.

My pastor took a great risk to say these things. May God honor his courage.

When Barry was conducting his search for a stupid white man that would not give him any competition in the intelligence department, he might have gone just a little higher up the food chain. If Biden worked in the private sector, he might have qualified as a cab driver or a highway department worker. As it is, he embarrasses this country across the world in ways that will take us decades to repair.

Kennedy got us into Viet Nam, and LBJ turned it into fullscale war. Both democrats.

Clinton ignored the first World Trade Center attack which emboldened Osama Bin Laden to plot the second WTC attack. Result? 9/11. Clinton? Yep, democrat.

Thank you, #34, for calling it EVIL. I have long thought of Obama and his minions as evil, and I don't care if that sounds crazy to some. Evil takes many forms, such as refusing to respond to calls for help, and letting born-alive babies die of neglect. And professing love and loyalty to your country while really tearing it down and apart. What I can't understand is how so many people can't or won't see this president for the lying, shallow, classless, and yes, evil person that he is.

There is absolutely no reason to believe that Romney has any desire to go to war with anyone, but because Obama and the Democrat machine say so, the leftist parrots, like multi-poster, repeat the same falsehoods. It is too bad that someone would want to be here with a such a negative closed-mind. Oh, and yes, there are black people on this forum. Just as there are hispanics, gays and people from all walks of life and backgrounds.

President Obama took to the road last week to lecture Americans, as he is wont to do. “We’ve tolerated a little more inequality for the sake of a more dynamic, more adaptable economy,” he lectured in Galesburg, Ill. “That’s all for the good. But that idea has always been combined with a commitment to equality of opportunity to upward mobility — the idea that no matter how poor you started, if you’re willing to work hard and discipline yourself and defer gratification, you can make it, too. That’s the American idea.” And that’s the problem. The president says the words, but

WASHINGTON — Secretary of State John F. Kerry’s quest for a solution to the Israeli-Palestinian quagmire seems to represent the last political stand for the former Bay State senator who, up until now, is best known for being a presidential loser. Kerry is surely trying to compose his ultimate swan song by capping his 30-year career in politics with a brokered Middle East peace deal by early 2014, right? Or is he hoping for something a little bigger? After all, Kerry has never put his 2004 White House loss fully behind him, people close to him say. Sure, Hillary Clinton

Hillary Rodham Clinton must be reveling in the latest round of Republican fratricide. First, there’s the Chris Christie-Rand Paul blow-up over national security, surveillance, and pork. Then, there’s John McCain’s musing over possibly supporting Hillary—his fellow Iraq War-backer of a decade ago. And, finally, there’s L.I. GOP Congressman Pete King’s comparison of Rand Paul to a Nazi-appeaser! At this rate, Clinton is on her way to a 40-state victory and a third consecutive Democratic win, while leaving the Republicans with the distinction of being the Party of Dixie, Idaho, and little else.

The U.S. government is quietly pressuring telecommunications providers to install eavesdropping technology deep inside companies´ internal networks to facilitate surveillance efforts. FBI officials have been sparring with carriers, a process that has on occasion included threats of contempt of court, in a bid to deploy government-provided software capable of intercepting and analyzing entire communications streams. The FBI´s legal position during these discussions is that the software´s real-time interception of metadata is authorized under the Patriot Act. Attempts by the FBI to install what it internally refers to as "port reader" software, which have not been previously disclosed, were described

The Pentagon’s illusion of choice:
Hagel’s 2 options are really 1

Posted By: Pluperfect- 8/3/2013 12:55:03 PM     Post Reply
Yesterday at the Pentagon, Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel unveiled the results of his Strategic Choices and Management Review (SCMR). The belated effort sought to think through the options — many unsavory — available to the military should sequestration and its $500 billion defense budget cuts remain law for the rest of the decade. Secretary Hagel’s cafeteria menu of options for policymakers should sequestration continue is so unpalatable because this is not the first round of defense budget cuts. Sequestration’s $500 billion in Pentagon reductions come on top of the close to $1 trillion in military spending cuts

Consider me fully in the Andrew McCarthy camp on the legality and potential effectiveness of a properly structured and run NSA metadata program, but the NSA program — as with all intelligence-gathering efforts — ultimately depends on an administration and government elite that is actually willing to let the men and women on the ground pull the triggers they’ve been trained to pull. Consider these three vignettes: First, from former attorney general Michael Mukasey, writing in the aftermath of the Boston bombing: Tamerlan Tsarnaev is the fifth person since 9/11 who has participated in terror attacks after questioning by the FBI.

White House insiders say President Barack Obama is in “a funk” about what he sees as increasing stagnation and failures surrounding his second term and some worry that the President is becoming more distant and distracted. “He’s not the same Obama that came to the Oval Office after the 2008 elections,” a senior White House aided confided to friends in an email recently. “I’m worried.” Chicago Mayor and former White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel tells friends that the Presidency has changed his longtime friend Obama and many of those changes are “not good.”

In 2008 and then again in 2012, after retired four-star General Colin Powell endorsed and then voted for Barack Obama, the former Secretary of State´s sanity was already in question. At least now, after having his email account hacked by high-level security-breacher Guccifer, Colin Powell´s besmirching of the Republican Party´s "shift to the right" and "identity crisis" finally makes sense. It seems that for years the mannerly and always professional Colin Powell has been cyber-comporting with a 46-year-old Romanian European Parliament member, Social Democrat, and past spokesperson for Romanian president Ion Iliescu named Corina Cretu

In warning about possible al Qaeda attacks against Americans overseas, U.S. officials may have provided too much detail about intercepted chatter and the source of the information, and that may make it more difficult to get such tips next time, former and current intelligence officials say.On Friday, the U.S. State Department issued a worldwide travel alert for Americans, citing an unspecified al Qaeda threat. The bulletin said that the highest threat levels are the Middle East and North Africa, “and possibly occurring in or emanating from the Arab Peninsula.”

Conservatives have for years attempted to put our finger upon precisely why Barack Obama strikes us as queer in precisely the way he does. There is an alienness about him, which in the fever swamps is expressed in all that ridiculous Kenyan-Muslim hokum, but his citizen-of-the-world shtick is strictly sophomore year — the great globalist does not even speak a foreign language. Obama has been called many things — radical, socialist — labels that may have him dead to rights at the phylum level but not down at his genus or species. His social circle includes

[Video] Rapper Jay Z appearing on HBO´s "Real Time" with Bill Maher says that the black community wants upward economic mobility rather than a stronger police presence. In a conversation with former Congressman Barney Frank about police tactics such as stop-and-frisk, Jay Z suggests the stagnant economy and wealth inequality could cause widespread social unrest: "The real problem is there´s no middle class, right? So the gap between the have and have-nots is getting wider and wider... It´s gonna be a problem that no amount of police can solve, because once you have that sort of oppression

The Rise of Al-Qaeda and Why the
Administration Lied about Benghazi

For nearly a year, we have had no answer to why the administration lied about Benghazi — why it told the world, not to mention the parents of our murdered SEALs at the funeral of their sons, that the cause of that fatal conflagration was an anti-Islamic video no one saw, when the various arms of our executive branch (White House, State and intelligence) already knew, or strongly suspected, it was a terror attack orchestrated by al-Qaeda affiliates. You only have to read the now infamous talking points to know that. That this lie was deeply immoral is obvious.

Today, across Africa, Araby and Asia, from Nouakchott to Dhaka, the diplomatic facilities of the United States are closed. There’s a Tsarnaev out there, somewhere – could be the Mahgreb, the Levant, the Horn of Africa, the Indian sub-continent – who knows? So, as Richard Fernandez writes, “Shelter in place, this time globally.” Maybe it will work. Maybe by the end of the day there will be, unlike Benghazi a year on, men in custody. But if not? Daniel Pipes: Don’t know about you, but I find this pre-emptive cringing unworthy of a great country, even humiliating.

Several skills that every kid once learned in school are going the way of the dodo in a hurry. Diagramming sentences is practically an extinct art, for example. Cursive handwriting and memorized multiplication tables look to be swiftly headed that way. Apparently, the next thing that kids will no longer need to learn is spelling and grammar. Sugata Mitra, a professor of educational technology at Newcastle University in northeast England, announced that traditional language rules are out of fashion, reports the Daily Mail. Kids don’t need to waste time on those things, see. State-of-the-art computers and mobile phones can make

Common sense tells me that cops don´t need a Taser or a shotgun to subdue a 95-year-old man. When John Wrana was a young man, fit and strong and fighting in World War II with the U.S. Army Air Corps, did he ever think he´d end this way? Just a few weeks shy of his 96th birthday, in need of a walker to move about, cops coming through the door of his retirement home with a Taser and a shotgun.

Not only should President Obama cancel a bilateral summit with "schoolyard bully" Russian President Vladimir Putin, Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said Sunday on "Face the Nation," but considering the country granted asylum to National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden, U.S. allies should try to move next month´s G-20 gathering from St. Petersburg. "President Putin´s behaving like a schoolyard bully, and in my experience, I´ve learned, unless you stand up to that bully, they ask for more and more and more," Schumer said. "He´s always going out of his way, President Putin is, to seem to poke us in

I have a suggestion. How about an exhibit on Tawana Brawley? If the purpose of the new National Museum of African American History and Culture at the Smithsonian is to remember racial controversies, as the proposed Trayvon exhibit seems to confirm, then how about an honest look at the phenomenon of hate crime hoaxes? Particular attention should be paid to the role of the media in both the Trayvon and Tawana materials. Unquestionably, the media stirred up racial animus, and these incidents both contributed to raising racial tensions.
