Woman informing Kerry, McCain’s opinions
on Syria also an advocate for Syrian rebels

Daily Caller, by Charles C. Johnson

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 9/6/2013 5:47:40 AM

The woman whose opinion lawmakers are relying on to go to war in Syria is also a paid advocate for the war-torn country’s rebels. On Wednesday, Secretary of State John Kerry encouraged members of the House of Representatives to read a Wall Street Journal op-ed by 26-year-old Elizabeth O’Bagy — an analyst with the Institute for the Study of War — who asserted that concerns about extremists dominating among the Syrian rebels are unfounded. “Contrary to many media accounts, the war in Syria is not being waged entirely, or even predominantly, by dangerous Islamists and al-Qaida die-hards,” O’Bagy wrote for the Journal

Comments:
Bret Baier discussed this on Fox last night. Fox has used her, too, without knowing this background.

The evidence mounts that the Obama Administration backs radical Islam. Fox may or may not have known this woman´s background but it is a sure bet that Kerry knows.

This is appalling. Why in the name of heaven is anyone listening to a 26 year-old anything about matters as grave as this. Then to find out this woman (girl) is deeply engaged with muslim factions and can´t possibly be objective in her own assessments. This is just the kind of seditious cr*p we should expect from this administration.

Where is Joe McCarthy when you need him?

Well, well, well...

Isn´t this an interesting turn of events? So we can´t trust our government to shoot straight with us. Kerry and McCain are cut from the same cloth. They are both ruling elites, and they both used their military service as a leg up in politics. McCain is a war monger and I can´t for the life of me understand why considering his background. His opinion on anything should be suspect, but his opinion on anything having to do with going to war should be immediately rejected. They both have an agenda and it is not one that is good for this country.

I watched this pretty girl yesterday on C Span, and wondered at the time how she could speak with such great confidence as to the composition of the rebel forces. She went so far as to say, or intimate, that Al Quaeda was almost non existent, and that the rebels would be allies of the u.s.
amazing.

she´s been all over Fox. Very attractive. Very young. Well spoken, glib even. Yesterday someone - perhaps Cavuto - called her out on her position, opinions and source of funding. She kept saying that her only source of income was as a ´´contractor´´. That´s a very fluid term...

Gee, this "woman" is not even old enough to be off her parents´ health insurance policy!

In one instance, the Obama administration wants us to believe that she is a "child" and must be supported by her parents at age 26. In another, we are supposed to listen to this person as some kind of "expert" at age 26.

Wonder when she picked up her 10,000 hours toward expertise in war, al Qaeda, and Syrian rebels?

Kerry´s having relied on "an article" written by this woman was in an article posted yesterday.

At the time I commented sarcastically that that should make us feel better, and that he and the Obots were grabbing at "facts" to support what they had already decided they wanted to do.

http://lucianne.com/thread/?artnum=750839

It obviously isn´t working as she has imploded and their "facts" are out the window. They are left looking even more incopetent and foolish than before, if that is possible.

Even Bret Baier looked sheepish when he had to reveal the information about her yesterday. Fox had used her. She had apparently appeared on his program? Oy.

The agendas of so-called "pundits" must always be checked out. And then the weight to be given their opinions (often stated by them as "facts") can be determined.

This is going to be one informative vote coming up on Syria ... Per Republicans it will differentiate and expose all the political elitists with ties to big Gov, to the war machine (NSA, CIA, etc..) vs. the true conservatives (less Government). Per the democrats it will expose the political power grabbers at any cost with NO ethics (for Obo) vs. the "true" liberals who are against intervening ... Interesting, Interesting!

#25, the Constitutional separation of powers has it that the Commander in Chief is in charge of management of the military ~ in peace and in war, although only Congress can declare war or call up the militia.

So, a True Conservative, in your mind, can´t be in favor of national defense and the use of huge, colossal even, thermonuclear warheads mounted on really big rockets owned by, Voila, the federal gub´mnt?

That we´ve gotta´ be in favor of small gub´mnt, not simply our federal system, with little Delaware and Rhode Island out there conducting foreign affairs and fighting their own wars?

Can I say that sounds like the ruminations of a 26 year old ~ just like the one we are talking about ~ someone who might even be an acrobatic ballerina pole dancer just like Snowden´s little co-worker?

Well, can I?

If you really want small, not just divided government ruled under constitutional principles, you can´t be a Conservative! We are realists and know there are bad guys in the world who´d murder us in the bed and fry our chillun´ for breakfast! We know they must be stopped. Assad is quite possibly not among that crowd, but there are others ~ lots of them.

Mooseface John Kerry the pacifist, anti-war, liberal demonstrator from the 60s getting his advice from a 26 year old muslim radical on thoughts of war. What a dupe.
If this group of Washington yahoos had been around in 1940 we would certainly be doomed to defeat by Hitler and the Japanese.
Just the fact that John McCain was playing cards on his cell phone tells me these jerkweeds are not serious. Not one dime or drop of American blood should be wasted on this middle east civil war. Bomb Iran if you have save face with the help of Israel. Ihat would get their attention.

On the one hand, Mr. Obama has chosen this pro-Syrian-rebel woman to parcel out information to his administration. On the other hand, he has Valerie Jarrett ordering him to stand down during critical moments requiring immediate US military response in our national interest. Is it any wonder this President always appears to waffle, to be ineffectual, indecisive, and without any core character principle?

Hey, McCain, and the rest of the wizards of smart, how about calling the NSA or your crack investigators, or even Google this woman, instead of playing poker while someone is briefing you? I appreciate his ability to multitask but it irks me that a topic so vital to national security bores this man so much that he amuses himself with poker while being advised. And we trust him? Sorry but his is the man who was captured and tortured, and glad he survived but clearly not one to show us how to evade and beat the enemy. Write about your experience and go home. We need hawks not dumbbells.

I don´t believe it´s any mystery that our government has been infiltrated by Muslim sympathizers. People have been writing same for about 10 years and while the warnings signs were there, no one seems to have had the incentive to do much about it.

Now we reap the whirlwind. Thank God some of these infiltrators, advocates of Sharia Law in America, are slowly being revealed.

One would think by now we´d be a tad cautious about vetting people. Obama´s "czars" are bad enough, but now we´ve got children advising Senators and Presidents how to further the cause of Islam in America.

Kerry, of all people, should know not to trust the opinion of a 26 year old:

Breitbart.com - September 2, 2013:

After Medea Benjamin of Code Pink broke into the hearing yelling anti-war arguments, Secretary Kerry retorted, “The first time I testified before this committee, when I was 27 years old, I had very similar feelings to that protester.”

Holy smoke! I watched Bret interview her on Fox the other day as a Syria expert and was thoroughly unimpressed. She was so bad I figured it must have been Bring Your Daughter To Work Day at Fox, and wondered who she was related to. She was stringing together these long, incoherent sentences that made no sense whatsoever. Very "what I did last summer." Very embarrassing. Very sophomoric.

I also understand the SETF organized McCain´s recent Syria trip. Who paid for it, since they are advocates for the rebels? And the ISW is worth a close look as well. Hardly a disinterested bystander.

When I saw this babe on Fox, I was amazed that she was being touted as some kind of authority on the rebel groups. She looked like an American but something was really off.

Then I heard her on the radio the next day as her assessment was being replayed. At that point "hearing" made me very suspicious because of her pronunciation of certain words - she did self-correct but not before I was truly alarmed. My question is: where was she educated?

By her Western appearance and her ability to speak English, I concluded that she is trying to pass herself off as an American, much like Valerie Jarrett. Hope McPain catches on that he´s being toyed with.

Dr. Kimberly Kagen started the Institute for the Study of War in 2007, according to their website. She is "a military historian who has taught at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, Yale, Georgetown, and American University." I always enjoyed her pieces in the Wall Street Journal. But, I´m with the earlier poster. That place should be looked into.

So this 26 year old O´Bagy lady comes out of the woodwork and calls for the USA to effectively conduct military operations in Syria.

Who is this lady, is she even a US citizen? I smelled a whiff of Canada in her speaking style. She is obviously an agent for some foreign groups. It is up to the media to find all that out and report it.

The political mantra that came out of Chicago, but pretty much universally applies, is "we don´t want nobody nobody sent."

So, who sent O´Bagy? Who is her sponsor? Who vetted her? If she is "informing" US policy in Syria we are entitled to know.

She is credited with having studied at the American University in Cairo, but I can find no degree. Now she is reported to be in a joint MA/PhD program at Georgetown. But who are her parents? Where did she grow up? How did she come to study at the American University in Cairo? Is she even an American citizen? And is O´Bagy her real name, or is it something else trying to sound Western, like O´Bama would be? Is it really Obaji?

Press release last May:

Washington,DC–The Syrian Emergency Task Force is excited to announce the addition of Elizabeth O´Bagy as Political Director to our team in Washington, D.C. She joins us from the prestigious Institute for the Study of War, where she served as a Senior Research Analyst for Syrian politics and security.

"We are thrilled to have Elizabeth on board. Her skill set, expertise on the situation in Syria, and experience in Washington and abroad are invaluable to the work of the Syrian Emergency Task Force both domestically and in Syria," said SETF Board of Trustees Chairman Dr. Mohamed Kawam. (Snip)

The Syrian Emergency Task Force is a D.C. based non-profit organization created in March 2011 to convey the democratic aspirations of the Syrian people to Americans and the United States government. SETF also seeks to bring perpetrators in the Assad regime to justice through legal avenues in the United States. SETF provides policymakers with analysis and access to both the external and internal Syrian opposition.


She is being paid by them to promote Assad´s downfall.

And for the Presiduncy and Vice Presiduncy, of course... a national refer-end-dumb.

We must never wait any longer for Eastern-based Elites (all Elitists) to do

We need legal measures now...

One of the Liberty Amendments or whatever you want to dub them...
Must be a citizen-generated immediate vote of NO Confidence in the Gummint...
And a complete RECALL Election to rid ourselves of this pile of worthless...

And why on earth is our government being advised by a 26 year old, especially one who says that despite the fact that she is the director of the Syrian Emergency Task Force, she is really only a consultant on humanitarian stuff with that group. Where did she come from? What is her education? Is she best buds with Huma?
How they must be laughing at this administration. And there are yet some who fear that if Congress nixes attacking Syria it will damage our reputation. That horse left the barn a long time ago. In fact, if Congress snubs Obama, it will be a good start at regaining our reputation.

27, I HAD to like your comment! That exact thought has been running through my mind too! So much so, I even went to youtube and looked the song up a couple of qweeks ago. I kid you not. I played it several times, because it just fit my mood ever so perefectly. Amazing you had the same thought and expressed it the same way!

Funny thing, a lot of the old anti-war songs of the 60´s fit so well now. Something´s happening here, what it is ain´t exactly clear. There´s a man with a gun over there, tellin´ me I got to beware...

O’Bagy is nothing but a modern-day Mildred Gillars (Axis Sally). What really scares me is the the our Secretary of State didn´t find out who she was before recommending her article publicly.

Lazy and inept. One of his aides probably handed him the article because it reflects the Administration´s naive and uninformed line about the rebels. He didn´t bother to find our who the author was - it was published in the NYT, after all - it must be the unvarnished truth.

ALL muslims are our enemies. There are no moderates. If there were they would work in their communities to suppress the murderous "radicals." Instead they just sit around silently waiting for the worldwide caliphate. The muslim religious/cultural/political/judicial/financial/social/militant system is all intertwined. A believer can´t just pick a portion to believe and ignore the rest and still be a "good" muslim. It ain´t a la carte.

This whole administration has bought into a finely-crafted muslim propaganda line. The religion of peace? Sure, there will be peace once we´re all under the thumb of a system dreamed up by a seventh-century pederast and warlord.

Now that I´m not on as much caffeine as I was while posting here yesterday...

I can recall I meant to include another comment about O-Bagy...
when she was just O-Baby, 26 years ago or so...

Should we not demand to see HER birfin´ certimicut... ?
Seems as though her bio, her history, is just a tad suspect...
What about her transcripts, her passport and visa records...
All those things we also needed about O-Bomber the NO-Bomber and never were provided.

Dealing with this Badmininstration and all its Bad Actors seems to be an exercise in
utter futility.

Propaganda experts like the Marxists. There was an article about a 1979 article about the commies aiming for the black folks after the Civil Rights struggle and had a coalition with Muslims and their money also in the mix. I can´t get it with an online search but it seems the conspiracy or secret combine is at work..

Muslims have been schooled here, know what makes us tick but do not want to emulate us and do know how to fool us.Our strengths like openness and trust or is it our projection of our own goodness looked at as being in everyone?

Uncivil Disobedience
Weekly Standard, by The Scrapbook    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 4/22/2014 4:46:15 PM     Post Reply
For the sake of argument, The Scrapbook is willing to concede that it is possible that Cliven Bundy, the Nevada rancher, ought to be allowed to graze his cattle on federal land in Nye County. And that protecting the desert tortoise as an endangered species on that same federal land is no good reason to impose a fee for grazing livestock. Reasonable people can disagree about these issues, and will do so. But in the United States of America, since 1789, we have had ways of settling these disputes. We have a judicial system that gives citizens due process and

New audio reveals an Eastern Connecticut State University professor warning that Republicans will “want things to go back — not to to 1955, but to 1855? if they win control of Congress in November. Republican victories could also put him out of a job, he cautioned. “We will live in a very, very, very different kind of country if that happens,” Professor Brent Terry told students in his Introduction to Creative Writing course, according to audio obtained by Campus Reform. “I mean, colleges will start closing up if these people have their way.” Over the course of his rant, Terry characterized conservatives

Members of the Sierra Club’s board of directors are driving around in gas-guzzling vehicles, despite the group’s support for the Obama administration’s increased fuel efficiency standards. The Sierra Club strongly supported the Obama administration’s increase in minimum fuel economy standards to 54.4 miles per gallon (mpg) by 2025, but it seems the Club’s top officials don’t practice what they preach. The Sierra Club’s 15-member board of directors own a combined 32 vehicles, less than one-fifth of which are hybrids or electric vehicles. Seven of the 32 vehicles are sports utility vehicles while only six are hybrids and electric cars, according

New poll confirms: Obamacare

National Journal published two stories late last week that immediately rocketed ’round the lefty blogosphere. The first argued that Obamacare was on a fabulous “winning streak;” the second followed up on the same theme, asserting that conservative critics of the law have sustained a credibility hit as a result of all this supposedly great news. (Our own Ed Morrissey was even cited as an example hyperbolic overreach — and everyone knows Ed’s reputation is a reckless hothead who’s prone to wild exaggeration). I responded to the latter piece yesterday at Townhall, addressing “correspondent” Lucia Graves’ arguments in some detail. In

Radical group’s founder helps Dem candidate

ALBUQUERQUE – One of New Mexico’s candidates for Governor is downplaying his ties to a co-founder of the radical anti-government Weather Underground. Democrat Alan Webber has raised the most money out of the five candidates vying for the party’s nomination and the right to take on Governor Susana Martinez in the November election. It turns out Webber got some fundraising help from a controversial source. From the late 1960´s to the mid 1970´s, the anti-war group the Weather Underground planted and detonated bombs at targets across the country. The group’s manifesto called for the violent overthrow of the United States government. One of its

In the final weeks of the Kentucky Republican primary election, U.S. Senate candidate Matt Bevin´s chief spokeswoman has left the campaign for an unknown reason.Rachel Semmel joined Bevin´s bid to unseat GOP leader Mitch McConnell last September after leaving an Arizona GOP lawmaker’s office. But in recent weeks Semmel had missed several campaign events and failed to respond to follow-up questions. In a text message Monday afternoon, Semmel confirmed with WFPL News she is no longer with Bevn´s campaign. "Yep. Left," she said. Semmel did not respond to questions about why she departed or under what circumstances, and neither did Bevin´s campaign in a

The death of the Sunday shows

The Sunday morning shows once occupied a sacred space in American politics. Today, many influential Washington players can’t even remember the last time they watched. The public affairs shows — “Meet the Press,” “Face the Nation” and “This Week” — used to set the agenda for the nation’s capital with their news-making interviews and immensely influential audience. Now the buzz around the shows is more likely to center on gossipy criticism about the hosts, notably “Meet the Press’s” David Gregory, whose fate has become an incessant subject of conversation, most recently in a Washington Post story on Monday. Meanwhile, fans complain about

Hook-handed preacher accused of

A New York jury heard accused terrorist Abu Hamza al-Masri gloat Monday over the 9/11 attacks and the 1998 bombing of a U.S. Navy ship. "Everybody was happy when the planes hit the World Trade Center," the hook-handed preacher told a television reporter in a videotaped interview that prosecutors played in Manhattan Federal Court. When asked whether he approved of the suicide attack on the U.S.S. Cole, Abu Hamza responded, "Of course. I agree with it." Prosecutors screened the clips while questioning witness George Corey, a federal investigator and former NYPD detective. Abu Hamza, 56, is charged with supporting Al Qaeda and the

A day rarely goes by without some sort of news or official statement about the difficulty and challenges of the Keystone Pipeline. Last week, the Obama administration yet-again delayed the decision to move forward with it. Yesterday, DNC chairwoman Debbie Wasserman-Schultz was on television defending this decision. And of course, it’s been a discussion item for over five years. So, why is there such controversy? It’s over 1,000 miles long and will cover several states. Take a look at this graphic from our friends at the Washington Free Beacon that shows the pipeline’s proposed location and size:

Thirty-eight Republican lawmakers, including such unlikely bedfellows as John McCain of Arizona and Ted Cruz of Texas, have joined to support a lawsuit challenging the legality of the Affordable Care Act and accusing the president of repeatedly ignoring the law he signed for political reasons. The lawmakers have signed onto a legal brief in support of a lawsuit filed by Sen. Ron Johnson, the Wisconsin Republican who is asking a federal court to overturn Obamacare’s special treatment for members of Congress and their staffs. “The unlawful executive action at issue in this case is not an isolated incident,” the brief

The Oxford English Dictionary may disappear from bookshelves because future editions could be too big to print. Only an online format would be practicable and affordable as the third edition is expected to be twice the size of the current version, according to its publishers. Dubbed OED3, it is already running 20 years behind schedule – and compilers are not expected to finish until 2034. OED editor Michael Proffitt said the internet had slowed the process by creating so much more source material. ‘A lot of the first principles of the OED stand firm, but how it manifests has to change and how it

Last week´s news about Obamacare enrollment was great. But health care policy wonks have something else on their mind now: the cost of health care. It’s starting to rise more quickly than before. That could be a problem. For the last four years or so, national health care expenditures—that is, all the money that Americans spend on medical services and supplies—has been growing at historically low rates. It’s gone up every year, as it almost always does, but only by 3 or 4 percent. That’s just a little bit more than inflation. Typically health care spending has risen more quickly.

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning

As he moves from lobbyists to the golf course, from press conferences to the tanning bed, he remains oblivious to all that is around him. He has power, incredible power, and yet to this day he has no understanding of the election that made it so. Moreover, all around him are astonishing opportunities for him to be an historic figure -- one who could and should be the man who did more than any other single person in turning back the red tide of Obama. It’s all there for Speaker of the House, and yet John Boehner manages to miss

Global sea levels have risen by 8 inches (20cm) since 1880 and scientists predict they could rise up to 3ft (98cm) by 2100. But despite the UN’s recent threats of war, famine and extreme weather, such a dramatically different world caused by sea level rise can be hard to imagine. To help picture the future, Martin Vargic, an amateur graphic designer from Slovakia, has created a map depicting the planet with sea levels around 260ft (79m) higher than they are today. He imagines what Earth would look like if the ice sheets surrounding the North and South poles melted, releasing

Harry Reid isn’t backing down from his claim that rancher Cliven Bundy’s supporters are “domestic terrorists.” It’s astonishing rhetoric given the White House’s characterization of the mass shooting by a genuine terrorist, Major Nidal Hasan, who killed 13 Americans at the Fort Hood Army base after yelling “Allahu Akbar!” (God is great.) Rather than labeling Hasan’s actions “domestic terrorism,” the Obama administration is prosecuting him for having committed “workplace violence.” Democratic rhetoric is become ever more desperate and overheated as we approach the November midterm elections.
