Bragging Rites

Has anyone else noticed the ongoing ‘see-we-need-the-NSA-to-spy-on-all-Americans’ meme being spread around? Everyone and his uncle are touting how necessary PRISM has become to protect us from terrorism. Forgotten in the hype is the simple fact none of the “new” info came from the US. Shutting down 19 Embassies until further notice was a result of overseas communication between the 2 top Al Qaeda members based in Pakistan and Yemen. Hello…..???

The Hill isn’t the first publication to question the party line from the White House on al-Qaeda

In terms of the scale of the threat, our embassies aren’t closing because of one particular AQ affiliate, either.  When was the last time we closed 19 of our embassies in countries with normal diplomatic relations due to a wartime threat?

The threat from al-Qaeda hasn’t been diminished by the Obama administration.  Thanks especially to its disastrous intervention in Libya, the threat from AQ has risen dramatically, perhaps exponentially, with the creation of the failed Libyan state and the metastasizing AQ presence in North Africa.  Mali nearly paid the price for it, saved only by direct military intervention from France, but there will be a price yet to pay for it nonetheless.

BO spent most of the 2012 campaign telling anyone who would listen “Al Qaeda is decimated, Bin Laden is dead”.  Then came the Libyan fiasco. Obama’s national security claims have gone up in smoke mostly due to the incompetence of his foreign policy. Intelligence Reports Warned of Possible Embassy Attacks for Months: “Why is this coming out now?”

Al Qaeda “chatter” about coming terrorist operations, mainly against 22 U.S. embassies and consulates, and threats to attack or bomb officials in the Middle East and elsewhere was widely reported in classified intelligence reports over several months. The report said an attack was planned for Sunday, although no attack was carried out.

The intelligence was based on electronic surveillance of al Qaeda communications indicating some type of spectacular bombing or other attacks was being planned and would in fact be carried out very soon.

The timing of the administration’s announced closure of numerous U.S. embassies in the Middle East has raised concerns among some U.S. officials that the Obama administration is politicizing intelligence to distract attention from the Benghazi and other scandals.

The lies told by BO and Shrillary about Benghazi have cost them credibility.

“If you would lie about Benghazi and make up the story about the cause being a YouTube video, what else wouldn’t you do?” he asked.

Great harm has been done to the credibility of U.S. intelligence agencies by politicizing intelligence and one effect is that when terrorist alerts are issued, people question the government’s motives, the former official said.

“In that context, I think we’ve reached the point where the two congressional intelligence oversight committee should take a look into this, just to put the public’s mind at rest,” the former official said. ….[snip]

Disclosure of the terrorist threat followed new reports that the CIA had begun giving polygraph or lie-detector tests to CIA contractors and officials involved in the covert action program in Benghazi to gather weapons circulating after the revolution that toppled Libyan leader Muammar Gadhafi.

A CIA annex was attacked by the terrorists who carried out the Sept. 11, 2012, attack that killed four Americans, including U.S. Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens, and two CIA contractors and former Navy SEALs.

The CIA was involved in shipping arms from Libya to Turkey and to Syrian rebels, according to U.S. officials.

Weren’t we told that once BO was elected, having lived in a Muslim country, the whole wide world would love us to pieces? His policies are causing us a great deal of harm along with a lot of other people (Christians). While the Muslim Brotherhood visits the White House, Christians are being murdered and burned out of their houses in Egypt.

  1. No he did not….liar liar…..
    ““Access is a very serious consideration when it comes to stories that could adversely impact a show, correspondent, or network’s relationship with the administration, a campaign, or any political leader,” one source with insider information told Mediaite.

    “I would suggest it’s not an accident that those who have been given a lot of access to the president have generally been AWOL when it comes to stories that might reflect poorly on him,” the source, who did not wish to be identified, continued. “It’s the name of the game. And it’s bad for everyone trying to do this job the right way.” Those reporters have reason to fear for their access to America’s executive branch. Some suspect that reporters who soft-pedal or underreport stories uncomfortable to the administration receive preferential access to White House officials.

    On September 12, 2012, less than 24-hours after the attack on the American consulate, President Obama sat down with CBS News reporter Steve Kroft for an in-depth interview on 60 Minutes. A critical portion of that interview, however, was omitted from broadcast only to be released online the Friday before the election. In that unaired portion of the interview, the president appeared to hedge about whether to declare that attack an act of terrorism.

    CBS’s decision to hold this portion of the interview became a focus of speculation because, during an explosive presidential debate against Mitt Romney, Obama declared with much more force that he had always regarded the Benghazi attack as a terrorist event.”

  2. What fresh hell have we reached when the Pres. talks to a comedian about foreign policy, but won’t talk to reporters? We are living in Mad Magazine world.

    Well Barry needs the adoration and the applause for being The Do Nothing Community Organizer President with the Obscure Past. You know he is on the high (snort, snort) when he becomes alive, personable and the greatest con artist before any audience, with his shined up face and smug smirk to show all Americans how without sin he is. Just keep the low informed adoring and worshiping him, after all he has only 3 years left and he can dodge responsibility for running the country by keeping on the lecture and campaign trail. See, isn’t he just “brilliand” as Oprah claims that he is?

    • Since you mentioned Oprah, I do not understand the apparent love fest with her in the media. People fawn over her every word and act like she is some kind of goddess. Yes she has been a very successful business woman (until she publicly supported zero for prez IMHO) but honestly I cannot stand her. I used to like her way back in the day, thought her talk show was decent, and she had a lot of good ideas. But now she us a puffed up over rated media whore cow who IMHO does NOT deserve the Medal of Freedom. It is like DC and their “awards” are becoming a who’s who group and just filled with stupid celebrities. And I especially detest her weighing in on that trayvon case. WHO the hell cares about what she thinks?? I am at the point in my life, and have been for a while, where if some celeb/athlete, whatever decides to shoot their mouth off on some liberal leftist cause, I will stop supporting that person. I don’t pay any attention to Oprah, and the newest celeb to irritate me is Matt Damon. I LOVE him in the Bourne movies, but HATE when he shoots his mouth off on social leftist causes. And he is the biggest hipocrite ever. Telling teachers “we have your back” in support of the public school system, but then moving his family to LA and putting his kids in private school????? yeah right. They all need to just shut the hell up. Sorry, another rant, but sometimes my head wants to explode when I listen to these idiots.

    I am with you Kathy. I just couldn’t listen to Barry and his press talk today. Was it the same old bla, bla, bla, with nothing new? Did it differ from his late night revelations with Jay Leno? Barry was all “elated” up for the show, butt looked more demure for the press conference. Barry has a hard time remembering which lies he told last to the public viewers. I don’t bother listening to celebs, have no idea what their names are, seldom watch any TV shows on 2, 4,5,7, or even go to the movies. So turned off by all the lefty celebs and dropped old Oprah years ago since she seems to have hard time deciding if she likes women or men to cuddle up with, and her “he so brilliant” remark about old Barry did it for me.
