Dithering and Slithering

Obama Delayed James Foley Rescue a Month, Fretting over His Image and Golfing

 

However, it also seems worth noting that the eventual timing of the mission may have made for a nice July 4th weekend announcement for Obama had the mission succeeded. Instead, Obama played golf on July 5th, as well as an additional six times in the month he is said to have spent agonizing over his decision, the delay of which may have cost journalist Foley his life.

Anthony Shaffer, a former lieutenant-colonel in US military intelligence who worked on covert operations, said: “I’m told it was almost a 30-day delay from when they said they wanted to go to when he finally gave the green light. They were ready to go in June to grab the guy [Foley] and they weren’t permitted.”

BO’s “image” is getting pretty small as he “frets” and gives innocuous speeches. I am cynical enough to believe the whole Ferguson debacle was inflamed to get attention off his abject failure in the ME and other dire circumstances, like the US southern border. Why else have Sharpton be his “eyes and ears” in that small city? They wanted to get attention away from the constant failures of the Litebringer, IRS, Fast and Furious, illegal aliens, Common Core,  eraseable red lines, and the disturbing economic policies.

The Syrian coalition is also putting the blame for Foley’s death on BO.  US to blame by Obama ignoring his own red lines.

The United States bears much of the responsibility for this horrible crime when it did not react to the Assad regime’s repeated crossing of the red lines it had drawn and warned against crossing. Therefore it is now imperative for of us to realize that the silence towards the wholesale killings and state terrorism committed anywhere in the world which has produced ISIS and other extremist groups is a real indicator of the expansion of extremism not only to the rest of the region but the entire world. From the very beginning we have many times warned the international community that Assad seeks to carry out its threat and set the region ablaze in case popular uprising against his rule.

…..and so he has.

  1. They have gone too far now…this cannot stand!

    “With all the excitement in the Middle East, you probably missed the call for the assassination of Mickey Mouse by a leading Saudi sheikh. Mr. Munajid doesn’t much like Tom or Jerry either — indeed, he’s eager to extirpate the whole species — but Mickey particularly upsets him, and he wants the world’s most famous mouse taken out.”

  2. Like the snakes they are…Holder and Obama.

    “Earlier in the day, Fitton informed Bream as she guest-hosted The Real Story with Gretchen Carlson that a DOJ attorney told Judicial Watch on Friday that the federal government does indeed back up all computer records in the event that something bad would occur in Washington and the continuity of government could be ensured. With this in mind, Fitton observed that:

    So everything we’ve been hearing about scratched hard drives, about missing e-mails of Lois Lerner, other IRS officials, other officials in the Obama administration, it’s all been a pack of malarkey. They could get these records but they don’t want to and they haven’t told anyone about it, frankly, until we were able to get it out of them on Friday. And there’s no such thing as Lois Lerner’s missing e-mails. It’s all been a big lie. They’ve been lying to the courts, to the American people and to congress. It’s really outrageous.

  3. Yep the very same Mexico that chastises the US for wanting to deport illegal aliens…

    “Mexican officials have deported more than 13,000 of the 14,000 undocumented, unaccompanied minors who have been caught at Mexico’s southern border, a rate significantly higher than in the United States, according to government sources familiar with the situation.”

    Additionally, Mexican authorities have deported more than 64,000 of the estimated 69,000 adults that have been detained along their southern border this year.”

  4. There they go again…1st Amendment be damned!

    “The federal government is spending nearly $1 million to create an online database that will track “misinformation” and hate speech on Twitter.

    The National Science Foundation is financing the creation of a web service that will monitor “suspicious memes” and what it considers “false and misleading ideas,” with a major focus on political activity online.

    The “Truthy” database, created by researchers at Indiana University, is designed to “detect political smears, astroturfing, misinformation, and other social pollution.”
