Whom Are We Arming? And Why?

Two days ago, President Barack Hussein Obama II stood in front of the American people and said:

Of course, there is no question that Libya – and the world – will be better off with Gaddafi out of power. I, along with many other world leaders, have embraced that goal, and will actively pursue it through non-military means. But broadening our military mission to include regime change would be a mistake.

The task that I assigned our forces – to protect the Libyan people from immediate danger, and to establish a No Fly Zone – carries with it a UN mandate and international support. It is also what the Libyan opposition asked us to do.  If we tried to overthrow Gaddafi by force, our coalition would splinter. We would likely have to put U.S. troops on the ground, or risk killing many civilians from the air. The dangers faced by our men and women in uniform would be far greater. So would the costs, and our share of the responsibility for what comes next.

Less than 24 hours later, Obama’s UN ambassador, Susan Rice, “left the door open to tactics like arming the rebel fighters.”

Rice said, ” We have not made that decision … but we have not certainly ruled that out.”

We?  Do ambassadors now plan war strategy?

Despite the usual mixed messages coming from within the Obama administration concerning the illegality (first contention) of arming rebels versus the legality of doing so (new contention), the fact remains that one day after he told the nation that US involvement in this “kinetic military (humanitarian) action” is winding down and specified that further efforts to oust Gaddafi will be “non-military”, he totally contradicted himself and Obama, himself, said that he’s “not ruling it out,” meaning arming rebels in order to oust Gaddafi, in effect causing “regime change.”

Arming rebels, taking sides in a civil war, seems (at least to me) to be “military” in nature.  It goes against his argument that broadening efforts to effect regime change “would be a mistake.”  And that it would further endanger our brave troops.  This was his exact argument against the Iraq war–that it would inflame Muslims and further endanger our troops as well as Americans anywhere in the world.

Does this about-face raise double-talk and prevarication to a new level?  Or can he merely flip-flop at lightning speed?  Does this man mean ANYTHING that he says?

It appears that the UN and the Eurocrats are pushing to arm these rebels, and Obama will likely go along, as it becomes more and more evident that if Gaddafi hangs onto power, this effort may become the issue that destroys Obama’s chances for reelection (if $4 gasoline, the stagnant economy, the lack of jobs, the deficit, Obamacare, and his ineligibility to be POTUS in the first place aren’t enough).

WHO ARE THESE “REBELS” that we might arm?  Who are these new “allies” of the US?  We’ve been hearing about the “flickers” of intelligence that say these rebels have alarming connections to Al Qaeda, Hezbollah, Hamas, and murderous attacks upon our troops in Iraq and Afghanistan.

But have you heard about this angle? Have you heard that Khalifa Hifter,

the new leader of Libya’s opposition military spent the past two decades in suburban Virginia but felt compelled – even in his late-60s – to return to the battlefield in his homeland, according to people who know him.

Khalifa Hifter was once a top military officer for Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi, but after a disastrous military adventure in Chad in the late 1980s, Hifter switched to the anti-Gadhafi opposition. In the early 1990s, he moved to suburban Virginia, where he established a life but maintained ties to anti-Gadhafi groups.

Late last week, Hifter was appointed to lead the rebel army, which has been in chaos for weeks.

Virginia, in the early 1990s.  Interesting, I’m sure, to regular readers of this blog.  Yes, Khalifa Hifter of Alexandria, Annandale, Fairfax, Falls Church, Keysville, Centreville, and Vienna, Virginia.  If this causes your eyebrows to go up, you’re not the only person with suspicions.  The Asia Times Online reports,

Khalifa Hifter – a former Libyan army colonel who spent nearly 20 years in Vienna, Virginia, not far from the Central Intelligence Agency in Langley? Progressives will love to learn that the romantic “rebels” are now led by a CIA asset.

At the London conference, the INC [Interim Transitional National Council] launched in style its slick political manifesto – ‘A vision of democratic Libya’ – which makes all the right noises; freedom of expression, presidential and parliamentary elections, and crucially, the promise of ‘a state that draws strength from our strong religious beliefs in peace, truth, justice and equality’. [and oppression of women?]

This is – extremely polite – code for Islam in post-Gaddafi Libya (so not to ruff Western feathers).

But Asia Times Online is not alone.  A socialist website asks why the American media play down this connection to the CIA.  Good question.  Why indeed?

On a regular basis, I read several newspapers, watch news on broadcast and cable TV, and read blogs and online news.  Today was the first I heard of this man–on the Jamie Allman radio show at 97.1 FM from St. Louis.  Today, Patrick Martin of the aforementioned socialist website wrote,

It has been six days since Khalifa Hifter was appointed the top military commander for the Libyan rebel forces fighting the regime of Muammar Gaddafi. His appointment was noted by reporter Nancy Youssef of McClatchy Newspapers, a US regional chain that includes the Sacramento Bee and the Kansas City Star.

Two days later, another McClatchy journalist, Chris Adams, wrote a brief biographical sketch of Hifter that left the implication, without saying so explicitly, that he was a longtime CIA asset.

Martin pointed to another expose of Khalifa, which asked an interesting question:

How else does a high-ranking former Libyan military commander enter the United States in the early 1990s, only a few years after the Lockerbie bombing, and then settle near the US capital, except with the permission and active assistance of US intelligence agencies? Hifter actually lived in Vienna, Virginia, about five miles from CIA headquarters in Langley, for two decades.

The agency was very familiar with Hifter’s military and political work. A Washington Post report of March 26, 1996 describes an armed rebellion against Gaddafi in Libya and uses a variant spelling of his name. The article cites witnesses to the rebellion who report that “its leader is Col. Khalifa Haftar, of a contra-style group based in the United States called the Libyan National Army.”

The comparison is to the “contra” terrorist forces financed and armed by the US government in the 1980s against the Sandinista government in Nicaragua. The Iran-Contra scandal, which rocked the Reagan administration in 1986-87, involved the exposure of illegal US arms sales to Iran, with the proceeds used to finance the contras in defiance of a congressional ban.

Interesting comparison to the Iran-Contra scandal, and exactly what I was thinking.  But wait!  Arms sales are no longer illegal, not if Obama says so and not if Obama does it (so there will be no “scandal”).  If this is supposed to be covert, and one would assume so, given the media tamp down, then why is this administration so INEPT about it?  Why are Queen Hillary of Libya and Princess Rice so inept about it?  Is our CIA similarly inept?  (Perhaps this is an effort of the Plame faction.)  Can the US survive the next two years, with these people in control?  It’s enough to make one long for the likes of Ollie North!

Considering that Obama spoke in his speech about how the US shouldn’t have to foot the entire bill and thus showed his concern over the cost of this adventure, can we assume that our allies will pay for and supply these arms?  Who’s going to train the “rebels” in the use of these arms?  (Boots on the ground.) What type of arms are they talking about, anyway? How, if we arm these rebels who oust Gaddafi, will the US (read: Obama) avoid “our share of the responsibility for what comes next?”

Have you seen video of these rebels, driving full tilt through the desert, in a motley assortment of vehicles, waving their arms and their guns, shooting into the sky, looking like post-apocalyptic antagonists from a Mad Max movie?  These are our new allies.  Somehow, Obama thinks he can control them.  I assume.  But perhaps it’s a false assumption.  Perhaps he prefers chaos.

So I heard this about the new rebel leader this morning and went looking and found little.  Now I, too, must ask: Why is Hifter’s name missing from most lamestream media stories?  Have you heard his name before?  While I don’t agree with most of Patrick Martin’s analysis, I do agree with him that this appears to be censorship. Government imposed or self-imposed?  Coverage of this war (and it is WAR) does not reflect our media’s finest hour.

I asked in the title of this post:  “Whom are we arming? And why?”  Thanks to our complicit media, I must also ask them, “Who is our POTUS and why do you not do your duty to find out and inform the American people?”

We don’t KNOW who this man is.  We don’t know why our media will not find out.  We don’t know why our representatives will not find out.  We don’t know why Republicans like Graham, McCain, and others are going along with this “kinetic military action” and now, apparently, also the arming of rebels, who many suspect are allied with our sworn enemies.  Rebels, some of whom may already have American blood on their hands.  Does anyone believe that whatever government rules Libya, it will NOT be an Islamic state?

Will anybody in the media or among our so-called representatives hear and answer these questions?

  1. h/t to Renee for finding this frightening article

    which raises a lot of questions that our media ought to answer. SOON.

  2. There is overwhelming evidence that BO and Hillary are arming Al Qaeda.


    REPORT: Obama signed secret order authorizing covert U.S. support for rebel forces in Libya…developing…

    Clinton says no decision on arming rebels…

    Terrorist Leader Says Arab Revolts Boost For Al Qaeda…


    President Barack Obama has signed a secret order authorizing covert U.S. government support for rebel forces seeking to oust Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi, government officials told Reuters on Wednesday.

    Obama signed the order, known as a presidential “finding”, within the last two or three weeks, according to four U.S. government sources familiar with the matter.

    Such findings are a principal form of presidential directive used to authorize secret operations by the Central Intelligence Agency. The CIA and the White House declined immediate comment.

    • Drudge. That’s what I call covert. Inept.

      So the “Secretary will disavow any knowledge of your activities.” And so will the POTUS, except now the WORLD knows about this secret finding.

      I can guess that Graham, McCain, and others, being patriots who love their country, want to see our efforts succeed and want to help any way they can to pull somebody’s cojones out of this fire that’s been ignited by the usual suspects. That’s best case scenario. I believe that McCain is a patriot. Five years in a hell hole proved that.

      As for the Clintons, I’d like to think they love their country above all else. Bill, I’m more inclined to believe does, more than Hillary of CHICAGO, remember. She’s been complicit with Barry since 2008 if not before. She’s in with Soros. She’s up to her eyeballs in this not-so-excellent adventure. They own it now. It’s their baby. All American blood that results from this will be on their hands. Just as they said it was on Bush’s.

  3. Is this bo & Hillary’s Iran-Contra Scandal?


    WASHINGTON (Reuters) – President Barack Obama has signed a secret order authorizing covert U.S. government support for rebel forces seeking to oust Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi, government officials told Reuters on Wednesday.

    • “They [Congress and “policymakers”] are leery of wading directly into a Libyan civil war, as opposed to the more limited kind of intervention that President Barack Obama outlined in his speech to the nation on Monday. Then, the president stressed that the United States was intervening in order to avert a genocidal slaughter of Libyan civilians that would have ‘tainted the conscience of the world.’

      But now statements from the administration seem to signal a shift in thinking.”

      The above is from this story: http://news.yahoo.com/s/yblog_theenvoy/20110330/ts_yblog_theenvoy/can-the-libyan-rebels-win

      What kind of spin is that? A “shift in thinking?” Obama SIGNED THE FINDING WEEKS AGO, authorizing “covert FORCES in Libya.” This is no change in thinking. Since when are covert FORCES NOT “boots on the ground?”

      Keep in mind, too, that he spoke to the American people only two days ago. He knew THEN that he authorized this “covert” military action. So he knew THEN that his lying purple lips were, well, lying. Right? Or am I wrong?

  4. So now Reuters knows and reports on this “secret” finding. Way to go, Barry. That’s what I call covert.

  5. And Trump is on O’Reilly tonight. Is this entire Trump affair a distraction from the fiasco in Libya?

    • I heard Trump tonight. Hats off to you The Donald. He stood up to OReilly. I just hope he is able to continue. If Trump does not have extra security, he needs to get some asap.

      • Yes he did Kathy, and made perfect sense too. Very refreshing for a CHANGE.

      • I saw him, too, and he was, I must admit, fabulous. Sounds like someone I could imagine myself voting for. Said all the right things. Even defended “birthers” and said he hates that word. For that I gotta love him. We’ve been taking this unfair ABUSE from our POTUS, his minions, and even our own representatives for over two years now. It’s about time somebody defended us. We are, indeed, only ordinary people who ask a simple question that SHOULD BE ANSWERED by EVERY POTUS candidate. Did you notice how O’Reilly asked, “what does it matter?” WTF?!!! What does it matter if the person who is commander in chief of our armed forces MEETS THE ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS OF THE CONSTITUTION? It matters above all else, considering the REASON why that’s a requirement specifically placed in the Constitution by the Founders and also that the POTUS SWEARS to UPHOLD the Constitution.

        I need to add Trump to my list of straight talkers. It was refreshing to hear, Renee.

        Did you also notice how O’Reilly has borrowed Hillary’s laugh? He tried so hard to make Trump look foolish and only succeeded in making himself look foolish.

        Karl Rove, who supposedly is a genius, is SO WRONG to think that this issue is poison for the Republicans. Not when 9 out of 10 doubt that Obama’s eligible.

        • Remember Rove and the Republicans are trying to cover their back sides also when it comes to Obummer.

          • I like Trump and would vote for him because he is experienced, intelligent and not part of the Washington machine.

          • I think he needs a lot of fabric to cover that big of a backside.

          • LOL Miri.

            I think now is the perfect time. The Demorats want to shut down the Government, so let’s let them do it. Indictments should immediately be issued and begin cleaning house starting at the top. This should prove interesting as it will included members of the Supreme Court.

        • Did you notice how O’Reilly asked, “what does it matter?”

          LOL ! What a stupid remark.

    • Yes, in part it is a distraction, but moreover Trump appears to be a stalking horse.

      • It’s possible; but if the Republicans nominate another losing RINO like McCain and Barry’s numbers keep tanking, somebody like Trump just might win it all. Why assume that Trump would spoil a 3-way race (who says he can’t get the Republican nomination?) and throw the election to Barry? In a race between Barry, Trump, and unnamed RINO (Romney, e.g.), my money would be on Trump. We are sick of slick liars. Trump is eccentric, but he is smart, he’s got loads more experience than Barry, he’s accustomed to running huge operations successfully, he’s got to be people savvy, and above all, he is honest. He says what the thinks. He’s not a smarmy, two-faced politico.

  6. http://www.exposeobama.com/2011/03/29/pat-buchanan-obama-seems-to-be-impeachable-3/

    In ordering air and naval strikes on a country that neither threatened nor attacked the United States, did President Obama commit an impeachable act?

    So it would seem. For the framers of the Constitution were precise. The power to declare war is entrusted solely to Congress.

    From King William’s War to Queen Anne’s War to King George’s War to the Seven Years’ War, the colonists had had their fill of royal wars. To no principle were they more committed than that the power to declare war must be separate from the power to wage it.

    And Obama usurped that power.

    His defenders argue that under the War Powers Act he can wage war for 60 days before going to Congress. But that applies only if the president is responding to an attack or has determined that the nation is under imminent threat.

    • And Obama usurped that power

      And I wonder if congress condones this slap in the face under the table or if they will finally have enough. This is a tell on our congress. Coming up and made to order.We will now see which side of the fence each are on. Here it is…

    • That is correct! Remember, under British kings, ships could go ashore, grab subjects, and FORCE them to become the King’s sailors. And marines, too, I imagine.

      So Barry has instituted a royal DUMB war of his own.

      The War Powers Act has always been unconstitutional and presidents have always pushed their luck by unilaterally taking military action, and Congress has seldom squeaked. They wrote the darned law, which they have no right to do because the only way to CHANGE the Constitution is via amendment. They won’t take a case to the SCOTUS for fear the law will be RULED unconstitutional.

      Like as not, if We the People tried to take it to court ourselves, they’d rule it a political question and We the People, who pay for wars and must fight them, too, have no “standing.”

      Nudge, nudge, nudge. Push the limits. See how far they will let you (meaning Barry) go. So far, they’ve allowed him to ignore the Constitution’s requirements for eligibility to BE commander in chief. In this they are also complicit, as is the SCOTUS who are “avoiding” the issue of eligibility. The Republicans want, like the Democrats, to ignore the requirements of the Constitution because they don’t want to bother to ask to get it amended. They want a possible Jindal or Rubio candidacy for the presidency. So they go along, AS IF the media and the DemocRats won’t howl that Jindal and Rubio are ineligible. They make no bones about any other double standard. Why would this be different?

      How much further will they let Obama push the limits? What next? See the article linked above, that Renee found. It speaks about a “dead pool”–a list of AMERICANS targeted for possible assassination by our government. Brennan says there are quite a few names on that list. Why are they listed? What did they do to deserve it?

      When did anyone give the POTUS the authority to list, target, and even possibly ASSASSINATE American citizens, without trial? Without any action on their part? If he can do this, what can’t he do? The IMPERIAL POTUS, who claims to hate empire.

  7. Excellent article, Miri. Another person in bed with Obama? Did Khalifa Hifter who was once a top military officer for Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi, live in one of those Muslim communities in Virginia that teaches jihad? Is he a member of the Muslim Brotherhood? You know the one that is a “secular” organization by the recently resigned Clapper. Newsleuth reported on those communities that the government watches but does nothing about.

    How did he get back into our country? Was he given asylum? The CIA brought him back to the US for his protection. Is he the one that has been getting the “inside” information for our government from the rebels in Libya?

    It appears we have another word that was redefined by Obama..covert now means exposed…let everybody know about it!

    • Gateway Pundit reports that Obama’s “finding” is a “Mother May I”.


      Already signed, sealed, delivered. So that means the boots are on the ground. It’s a done deal.

      Think about what “a few weeks ago means.” That’s BEFORE the first Tomahawk ever flew. When he was still saying this is only going to be a “no-fly zone”, a humanitarian thing to protect civilians. When they were still “considering” a no-fly zone.” Not even decided upon yet. But that “secret finding” was already signed.

      Then it was decided to go with the no-fly zone, but that quickly became air sorties, even attacking Libyan troops. Today, I read that our ships have been in gunfights with Libyan coast guard boats. Sounds like a war to me.

      Yet one, if not two, weeks BEFORE any action began, BEFORE he ever had any “bipartisan” meeting with Congressional leaders, he signed that “secret” finding authorizing arming and training these rebels to overthrow Gaddafi, all while saying that’s not our mission.

      The reason I say he’s inept is exactly because covert is supposed to be COVERT. A commenter at Gateway Pundit rightly says that when this is out in the public, it endangers our troops. Indeed.

      That’s why we need real “intelligence” and real “military commanders” running things, and not inexperienced whatever you want to call this krewe.

      In ordinary circumstances, with the typical American president, I’d be happy to remain blissfully ignorant of what our brave covert operatives do IN THE NAME OF PROTECTING AMERICA. It’s like Jack Nicholson said in “A Few Good Men”. We want them on that wall. We need them on that wall.

      Ordinarily, we don’t need to know that they’re on that wall or what they’re doing there, so we can sleep soundly in our beds at night.

      But that’s with an ordinary POTUS–one that we can feel safe and secure with, because he’s an AMERICAN POTUS, who loves his country and puts his country and the safety and interests of his country ABOVE ALL OTHER CONSIDERATIONS. And who loves us AS “his people.”

        There’s an example of why Obama makes me queasy. Van Jones leading a rally right after 9/11: Praising revolution brought about by American “bombs”. Celebrating 9/11. And Van Jones was in OUR WH.

        • Anyone see Beck’s show this week where he used all the symbolism attached to 9-11? All these different organizations are planning things that come to fruition in 9-11! He connected the radicals, words of the unions, NWO etc., to the new 9-11..that is 6 months away.

          I forgot about it until you mentioned it above. I only caught part of it. It was significant.

  8. Wow That Was Fast! Libyan Rebels Have Already Established A New Central Bank Of Libya
    Monday, March 28, 2011

    The rebels in Libya are in the middle of a life or death civil war and Moammar Gadhafi is still in power and yet somehow the Libyan rebels have had enough time to establish a new Central Bank of Libya and form a new national oil company. Perhaps when this conflict is over those rebels can become time management consultants. They sure do get a lot done.

    What a skilled bunch of rebels – they can fight a war during the day and draw up a new central bank and a new national oil company at night without any outside help whatsoever. If only the rest of us were so versatile! But isn’t forming a central bank something that could be done after the civil war is over? According to Bloomberg, the Transitional National Council has “designated the Central Bank of Benghazi as a monetary authority competent in monetary policies in Libya and the appointment of a governor to the Central Bank of Libya, with a temporary headquarters in Benghazi.” Apparently someone felt that it was very important to get pesky matters such as control of the banks and control of the money supply out of the way even before a new government is formed.

    Of course it is probably safe to assume that the new Central Bank of Libya will be 100% owned and 100% controlled by the newly liberated people of Libya, isn’t it?

    Most people don’t realize that the previous Central Bank of Libya was 100% state owned…..

    Of course oil had absolutely nothing to do with why the U.S. “inva—” (scratch that) “initiated a kinetic humanitarian liberty action” in Libya.


    • Perhaps they learned about international banking from another CIA asset.

    • Now that I think about it, this might be a good thing. It will be that much easier for them to write the people of the USA a check from Gaddafi’s $33 billion to REPAY US FOR THEIR “LIBERATION”.

      Isn’t it heartening when you see those Mad Max impersonators firing all those bullets into the sky? Why worry about waste when We the People of the USA are paying for the ammo?

    • Libyan Foreign Minister Moussa Koussa arrived in the U.K. on Wednesday and is resigning from his post, Britain’s government said.

      Moussa arrived from Tunisia at Farnborough Airport, about 35 miles (55 kilometers) southwest of London, the Foreign Office said in a statement, adding that he traveled here under his own free will.

      “He has told us that he is resigning his post,” the statement said. “We are discussing this with him and we will release further detail in due course.”

      It was not immediately possible to confirm the statement with Moussa or people close to him.

    • It’s not off topic. The Libyans are saying this isn’t true–that he’s there on government business. It’s pretty bad when we don’t even know which side to believe.

  9. Just heard that the Libyan rebels are reporting a massacre of civilians in Misrata. Maybe so. The question is: Who killed them and why? Given the makeup of these bands of “rebel freedom fighters”, it’s plausible that they might stage a massacre for media attention and to inflame the sympathetic sensibilities of Westerners who have far more concern for the value of human lives and are totally oblivious to taqiyya.

    This published 5 minutes ago:
    “A former U.S. intelligence officer … [is] aware of the identity of some of the Libyan rebels fighting Col. Moamar Khadhafi’s military forces and they are not the freedom-loving patriots the Obama administration claims they are.

    According to the intelligence source — who requested anonymity — the roads leading to the city of Tobuk from the cities of Benghazi and Darnah are saturated with Islamic terrorists, many of whom possess combat training and experience gained in terrorist training camps throughout the Middle East.

    Some of the Libyan rebels have fought Americans in Iraq as part of the al-Qaeda in Iraq organization. A few were even used as suicide bombers to take out Iraqi police officer and other targets in Baghdad and other locations, said the intelligence source. … President Barack Obama other U.S. leaders have sold their military intervention as being one based on compassion and not American interests. Obama has repeatedly emphasized that U.S intervention is purely a humanitarian endeavor to prevent a massacre of “pro-democracy forces and human rights advocates” by the highly mechanized Khadhafi military forces. ‘Everyone [in the Obama Administration] appears to downplay the possible involvement of jihadi terror groups in Libya, the same way they sold Americans a “bill of goods” that the Muslim Brotherhood was not a problem in the aftermath of the recent Egyptian overthrow of its government,’ said the intelligence source. There are also fears that Khadhafi indeed still possesses some chemical or biological weapons …”

  10. Where is CODE PINK? MOVEON? CINDY SHEEHAN? SDS and its spinoffs?

    My message is directed towards all those lint-for-brains, lunatic leftwing lemmings – those pompous, pig-headed, pathologically-lying pond scum progressives who are so anti-war and who thought they were being, oh-so clever, in calling John McCain, Juan McSame, and claiming that he was four more years of Bush.

    Well, guess what, meatballs. Barack Hussein Obama’s first term is George W. Bush’s third term. The REAL MCSAME is that illegal alien, Israel-hating, jihad-loving, Marxist Muslim community organizer Orpheus you libtards lobbied into the White House.

    Obama has continued the exact, same policies as Bush before him – GITMO, indefinite detentions, Iraq and Afghanistan, Patriot Act, and preemptive strikes on foreign countries – but added a few, fascistic edicts of his own that Bush or McCain would never authorize, such as extrajudicial assassinations of US citizens abroad, targeting of US citizens as “potential domestic terrorists” – such as veterans, pro-Life supporters, Constitutionalists, and people who advocate for limited government, illegal surveillance, prosecution of thought crimes, race-based DOJ decisions, discrimination against Jewish charities while protection of Muslim charities who funnel money to Hamas, declaring a war on a sovereign nation without letting Congress know, attacking the state of Arizona in this country, in the country that exports gang-violence to Arizona cities, and in the America-hating and Jew-hating UN, snubbing our Allies, kissing the butts of our enemies, and attacking Israel – the only true democracy in the Middle East – while inciting violence against the Jewish people.

    He’s tripled our deficit, destroyed jobs and our economy, raised taxes on the poor and middle-class, manipulated the public and the “banking crisis,” “Wall Street crisis,” mortgage crisis,” “foreclosure crisis,” “auto industry crisis,” “health care crisis,” “BP oil spill crisis,” “Japanese nuclear crisis,” and now, in another crisis too good to waste and even better to create, the Middle East crisis, while being the most secretive, most corrupt, most inexperienced, incompetent, inept, and pernicious President {NOT} in history…and the list goes on.

    For those who voted for Obama in 2008 and plan on voting for him in 2012, their heads are firmly stuck up their pasts. Meanwhile the MainStream Media, aka the Enemy of the People, is continuing that wall-to-wall, 24/7 hype and horse manure that they began in 2003.

    Obama’s eligiibilty is not the issue, nor has it ever been the issue. Obama is a proven fraud and traitor. The conspiracy that put him in the White House – the one the Left loves to laugh about is not only real, but is far larger and more dangerous than their little pea brains could ever imagine.

    Josef Goebbels take on the Big Lie – as first postulated by Lenin – is that it had to be so colossal and so seemingly outlandish that no “intelligent” person could even envision it. Yet it had to have a grain of truth to it.

    The liberals in this country during the height of the Holocaust, including FDR and his Cabinet, called the claim that the Nazis were exterminating millions of Europe’s Jews, a “conspiracy theory,” and used the same Liberal Illogic then, as they do now, to dismiss it. You know, that “Don’t you think if it was really happening, that our military or government agents would know about it?”

    The grain of truth in that “Colossal lie” is the latent hatred of Jews in Germany and Poland that only needed to be stoked by a “news publication” known as Der Sturmer.

    The grain of truth in the colossal lie about Obama being a US citizen is that no valid, concrete proof of his citizenship exists anywhere. The boulder of truth, however, is that he committed felony identity fraud by faking his “birth certificate,” a Photoshop image forgery of a nonexistent document whose sole purpose was to hide the truth about his real name, his real parents, and his real place of birth.

    Obama is but one of ten million people in this country with stolen or fraudulent identification documents. The big difference here, however, is that none of these thieves has ever run for President and been illegally elected.

    • Most EXCELLENT rant, Dr. P. I can’t disagree with one word you said. You nailed it. You ought to copyright this comment.

      I asked that same question about Code Pink early this month: https://wtpotus.wordpress.com/2011/03/02/extra-extra-read-all-about-it-2/

      This was most definitely a created crisis. What’s especially unusual (or perhaps not) is the confluence of Obama family individuals and this new leader of the Libyan rebels living together in the same general DC area in the early 1990s. Malik, the most orthodox of Obama’s Muslim “brothers”. Some of his wives. All hanging out near DC and Langley, VA, in Annandale and Alexandria, VA, and also in places like Silver Spring, MD. The rebel leader also may have lived in Maryland, although the age give on that record is for a person 20 years younger. Since he lived in the USA for 20 years, perhaps he started off in Maryland. Curious, isn’t it?

      Who selected that guy to lead the rebels? Was it the CIA? In that post, I asked why the progressives aren’t against overthrowing leaders in these Middle Eastern countries via CIA action, when they very much opposed similar actions by past presidents south of our border, with the proximity to the US at least making intervention somewhat plausible. The national security argument. Gates himself admits that Libya has no vital interest for the USA. So why are we overthrowing their government? We are, and it was decided to do this WEEKS AGO.

      So today the lamestream reports that CIA operatives are in Libya, but they seem to buy Obama’s canard that these aren’t “boots on the ground.” If they should become “bodies in the bags” will we be informed? Or being not-so-covert agents (now), if they die bravely in service to their country, will they be ignominiously slipped back into the country and buried quietly, lest Americans know that Barry sent them to their deaths? They will be (now) sitting ducks, as will the troops from Lejeunne be, as are the troops on the Navy vessels (in firefights with Libyan vessels), as are the airmen in the skies.

      Why, under GWB, was intervention in a Muslim country and insertion of US troops onto Muslim soil considered dangerous because it inflamed Muslims, who might plot more and bigger terror attacks against us; but NOW, under Barry, intervening in a Muslim country, overthrowing its government, inserting CIA agents onto Muslim soil, bombing from the air and lobbing missiles into the country, killing Muslims, and engaging in gun battles with Muslim vessels somehow, MAGICALLY, will NOT inflame Muslims?

      Dare I answer this question? Is it because the jihadists won’t be angry because the end game is that they get a foothold in Libya and Egypt, the beginnings of the remaking of the Caliphate?

      The lamestream reports today that Carney says that no decision has been made about arming the rebels. Yet. But how can that be when WEEKS ago, the agents were sent? The new rule is, if the Obama administration says no, it means yes. If they say yes, it means no. Exactly the opposite. If their lips are moving, they’re lying.

    • You said it all! Excellent commentary and summary of events of the progressives attacks on America, Ron.

      Where is Code Pink? I believe they are organizing the Third Flotilla as I write. Bill Ayres is most likely preparing his own travel itinerary so he can be onboard.

      Also, Obama met with with Muslim Brotherhood from Egypt in 2009.. another coincidence that Egypt’s chaos was sanctioned by Obama and his ilk.

      • Hi Ron !
        Code Pink: Jodie EVANS and Anne WRIGHT…Does she know that preacher Jerimiah WRIGHT ?, Donald YOUNG and all of that group? hummm..
        That name and connection thing, gets me every time. I was thinking too of Sean Penn’s x wife Robin WRIGHT Penn. Sean cried about Haiti.

    • I’ll guess before I read the post: Al Qaeda. Am I right?

      • Nope. I’m wrong! He says it’s the Muslim Brotherhood. The story says that the MB would serve to eliminate the Al Qaeda threat. Bwahahahaha. I believe that! In my book, no diff between MB and AQ. None. They’re Muslim jihadists who hate the USA and want our destruction. Maybe they have theological differences, but they are united on jihad and taqquiya. So now we’re arming the Muslim Brotherhood. This begs the question: Are any members of Barry’s family members of the MB? Do we want to know the answer?

    Libyan rebels sold Hizballah and Hamas chemical shells
    DEBKAfile Exclusive Report March 31, 2011, 11:24 AM

    Senior Libyan rebel “officers” sold Hizballah and Hamas thousands of chemical shells from the stocks of mustard and nerve gas that fell into rebel hands when they overran Muammar Qaddafi’s military facilities in and around Benghazi, debkafile’s exclusive military and intelligence sources report.

    Word of the capture touched off a scramble in Tehran and among the terrorist groups it sponsors to get hold of their first unconventional weapons.

    According to our sources, the rebels offloaded at least 2,000 artillery shells carrying mustard gas and 1,200 nerve gas shells for cash payment amounting to several million dollars.

    US and Israeli intelligence agencies have tracked the WMD consignments from eastern Libya as far as Sudan in convoys secured by Iranian agents and Hizballah and Hamas guards. They are not believed to have reached their destinations in Lebanon and the Gaza Strip, apparently waiting for an opportunity to get their deadly freights through without the US or Israel attacking and destroying them.

    It is also not clear whether the shells and gases were assembled upon delivery or were travelling in separate containers. Our sources report that some of the poison gas may be intended not only for artillery use but also for drones which Hizballah recently acquired from Iran.

    Tehran threw its support behind the anti-Qaddafi rebels because of this unique opportunity to get hold of the Libyan ruler’s stock of poison gas after it fell into opposition hands and arm Hizballah and Hamas with unconventional weapons without Iran being implicated in the transaction.

    Shortly after the uprising began in the third week of February, a secret Iranian delegation arrived in Benghazi. Its members met rebel chiefs, some of them deserters from the Libyan army, and clinched the deal for purchasing the entire stock of poison gas stock and the price.

    The rebels threw in a quantity of various types of anti-air missiles.

    Hizballah and Hamas purchasing missions arrived in the first week of March to finalize the deal and arrange the means of delivery.

    The first authoritative American source to refer to a Hizballah presence in Benghazi was the commander of US NATO forces Adm. James Stavridis. When he addressed a US Senate committee on Tuesday, March 29, he spoke of “telltale signs of the presence of Islamic insurgents led by Al-Qaeda and Hizballah” on the rebel side of the Libyan war. He did not disclose what they were doing there.

  13. Our Libyan ‘Pickup Game’
    April 1, 1011 Snips

    Leadership: As we put CIA boots on the ground to find out who the rebels are and withdraw air support as they retreat, our defense secretary DESCRIBES HOW WE’RE MAKING UP OUR POLICY AS WE GO ALONG! [My emphasis]

    Defense Secretary Robert Gates and Adm. Mike Mullen, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, were on Capitol Hill Thursday in a marathon of congressional testimony trying to explain our ad hoc “kinetic” military actions in Libya and a policy that seems to change and get redefined minute by minute.

    Among the issues discussed was the decision to remove American close air support just as the rebels were reeling from a government counteroffensive in the hope that NATO will pick up the slack.

    “Your timing is exquisite,” Republican Sen. John McCain said sarcastically, alluding to Gadhafi’s military advances this past week.

    This is a policy?

    Reports in the Washington Post and elsewhere describe how CIA operatives have been ordered to gather intelligence on the identities and capabilities of rebel forces opposed to Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi, even how many they are.


    • Are they being told what to do by Obama? I can’t believe that the top military officers are making up policy on a day to day basis with no concrete mission toward victory and success! Who is commanding? Is it the wimp that is sabotaging our win because he has no iota what he is doing? Must they advise and then follow his orders when he is a friggin’ incompetent lemon? We are talking about the security and safety of all those involved in this now recognizable fiasco of a war that isn’t a war.

    • That’s what happens when you let an incompetent like Hillary lead you into an Illegal War.

    • They could pull back the CIA and save the US taxpayers a lot of money. They’re embedded over there to try to find out who the rebels are, if you believe what Barry says, which I don’t. But if true, all they need do is read the Wall Street Journal:
      “DARNA, Libya—Two former Afghan Mujahedeen and a six-year detainee at Guantanamo Bay have stepped to the fore of this city’s military campaign, training new recruits for the front and to protect the city from infiltrators loyal to Col. Moammar Gadhafi.

      The presence of Islamists like these amid the opposition has raised concerns, among some fellow rebels as well as their Western allies, that the goal of some Libyan fighters in battling Col. Gadhafi is to propagate Islamist extremism.

      Abdel Hakim al-Hasady, an influential Islamic preacher and high-school teacher who spent five years at a training camp in eastern Afghanistan, oversees the recruitment, training and deployment of about 300 rebel fighters from Darna. [How kind. A training camp. Might they mean a TERRORIST training camp? A JIHADIST training camp?]

      Mr. Hasady’s field commander on the front lines is Salah al-Barrani, a former fighter from the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group, or LIFG, which was formed in the 1990s by Libyan mujahedeen returning home after helping to drive the Soviets from Afghanistan and dedicated to ousting Mr. Gadhafi from power.

      Sufyan Ben Qumu, a Libyan army veteran who worked for Osama bin Laden’s holding company in Sudan and later for an al Qaeda-linked charity in Afghanistan, is training many of the city’s rebel recruits.

      Both Messrs. Hasady and Ben Qumu were picked up by Pakistani authorities after the U.S.-led invasion of Afghanistan in 2001 and were turned over to the U.S. Mr. Hasady was released to Libyan custody two months later. Mr. Ben Qumu spent six years at Guantanamo Bay before he was turned over to Libyan custody in 2007.

      They were both released from Libyan prisons in 2008 as part of a reconciliation with Islamists in Libya.”

    Who affiliated with the Obama regime would stand to directly benefit, armed with a prior knowledge of an oil market spike? Multi-Billionaire George Soros, a convicted insider information trader? Barack Obama via his mentor George Soros?

    • Good catch FS;
      This is an extreme amount of coincidental events. Orchestrated Events would be more accurate. The joint exercises concept called Southern Mistrial/Southern Storm preceded any protests in Tunisia, Egypt, or Libya by nearly three months. The duration of the ficticious exercise was to be 4 days. The duration of the US’ “active” involvement prior to command hand off was intended to be days also, the actual hand off (delayed?) 3/31/11. A period of 12 days.

      The military exercises scheduled 5 months beforehand, found the forces serendipitously on station ready to commence air strikes, on the same day the UN resolution is approved. Also these exercises were first conceived 11/2/10, Election Day in the U.S. An election which handed Barack Obama a stunning setback, effectively making him a lame duck president for the next two years.

      What is the motive, behind staging a revolt in a third world nation, only to ride to the rescue at the last moment? A Messiah complex? Another term in 2012 ? Manipulating the domestic oil market, by destabilizing the OPEC region after declaring an offshore drilling moratorium ? An act causing economic inflationary pressure on an already strained American economy, effectively redistributing wealth by eroding savings,residential and commercial values of the non poverty income sectors?

  15. With Enemies Like These

    April 1, 2011
    Daniel Flynn

    When you fight other people’s wars, you get other people’s outcomes. This is the glaring danger of the Libyan intervention.

    “The intelligence that I am receiving at this point makes me feel that the leadership I am seeing are responsible men and women who are struggling against Colonel Gadhafi,” Admiral James Stavridis testified to Congress last week. “We have seen flickers in the intelligence of potential al Qaeda, Hezbollah, we’ve seen different things, but at this point I don’t have detail sufficient to say that there is a significant al Qaeda presence or any other terrorist presence in and among these folks.”

    Admiral Stavridis, meet Abdel-Salam Rigayi. “We want a society based on the Koran,” Rigayi told the told the Associated Press. “Freedom of religion—we don’t want it,” the Libyan rebel training in Benghazi explained. “We want the freedom to practice our religion, but we don’t want freedom for Jews and Christians and to have naked women and alcohol.”

    The sentiment among the foot soldiers is also evident among the commanders. Abdul Hakim al Hasadi, one of the leaders of the uprising against Qaddafi, made his way to Libya after fighting against Americans in Afghanistan. Captured in Pakistan 2002, al Hasadi spent much of the last decade in captivity in Pakistan and Libya. Al Hasadi claims to have recruited about 25 jihadists to kill Americans in Iraq and has been a member of the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group. Now he commands a rebel group in Eastern Libya.

    So unsure is the Obama administration about the composition of the Libyan fighters that, according to the Washington Post, they have sent CIA operatives into Libya to determine who, precisely, we are aiding.


    • Admiral Stavridis, meet Abdel-Salam Rigayi. “We want a society based on the Koran,” Rigayi told the told the Associated Press. “Freedom of religion—we don’t want it,” the Libyan rebel training in Benghazi explained. “We want the freedom to practice our religion, but we don’t want freedom for Jews and Christians and to have naked women and alcohol.

  16. Note: Anonymous diplomatic sources…The Sauds will invade Bahrain?

    Exposed: The US-Saudi Libya deal
    By Pepe Escobar
    Apr 2, 2011

    You invade Bahrain. We take out Muammar Gaddafi in Libya. This, in short, is the essence of a deal struck between the Barack Obama administration and the House of Saud.

    Two diplomatic sources at the United Nations independently confirmed that Washington, via Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, gave the go-ahead for Saudi Arabia to invade Bahrain and crush the pro-democracy movement in their neighbor in exchange for a “yes” vote by the Arab League for a no-fly zone over Libya – the main rationale that led to United Nations Security Council resolution 1973.

    The revelation came from two different diplomats, a European and a member of the BRIC group, and was made separately to a US scholar and Asia Times Online. According to diplomatic protocol, their names cannot be disclosed.

    One of the diplomats said, “This is the reason why we could not support resolution 1973. We were arguing that Libya, Bahrain and Yemen were similar cases, and calling for a fact-finding mission. We maintain our official position that the resolution is not clear, and may be interpreted in a belligerent manner.”


  17. Libya: wife of defecting foreign minister captured in firefight
    The wife of the Libyan foreign minister who defected to Britain earlier this week has been seized by Colonel Gaddafi and is being interrogated by his “internal security” officials, The Daily Telegraph can disclose.

    She is thought to have been captured amid eyewitness reports of a fierce gunfight at Col Gaddafi’s central Tripoli compound as the regime stepped in to stop further defections.


  18. What is Obama’s agenda?

    Easy, once you stop thinking he is on America’s side,

    The emasculation of Nato

    Obama boy Glenn Beck

    What an incredible sight it was on FOX, For Obama eXpletative, when the triplet penises of the derrick in Obama’s pants, and his twins, Glenn Beck and Bill O’Reilly all became erect in defending B. Hussein, the Banana Republic dictator of America, against that American, Donald Trump, as Mr. Trump’s First Amendment Rights, make Glenn Beck uncomfortable.

    Fox News host Glenn Beck said Friday night that Donald Trump has been making him “a little uncomfortable recently”.

    The best or worst quote from Beck though reveals he is apparently Obama on teleprompter brains in this odd statement to Bill O’Reilly.

    “You can say, ‘I don’t believe he has a birth certificate.’ But then he goes into ‘I do not believe he has a birth certificate’ and then he releases one that’s worse than Obama’s. And then he comes back and he says on your program, ‘He might be a Muslim too.’ I’m like, come on!”

    Beck somewhere lost me in saying I don’t and I do not believe………….apparently Beck’s command of English is Kremlin educated as he does not know an apostrophe means the same thing in DON’T and DO NOT.

    For the record so this Mormon mind of Beck can comprehend, Barack Hussein Obama is a secular Muslim, like most Jews are secular Jews, like Nancy Pelosi is a secular Christian. Religion gives these butchers of humanity the same carte blanche which Mormon Beck has in judging people.
    For the record, Mormonism utilizes the same rituals of the high degree Masonic orders, as in illuminated satanism. If you care to research Mormonism, of which Glenn Beck plunged into, leaving Christianity behind, it had the founder seeing visions, digging up golden tablets and other such things which left Christ behind and made Joseph Smith the voice……….the same voice which a few decades ago for those who recall, had the same Mormon elders come out with a vision that “black people could be in the leadership at Salt Lake too”.

    Amazing isn’t it, that before that apparently blacks could………..well swing from trees as far as Mormonism judged.

    Apparently Beck in his new found religion which when he talks sounds a great deal like Obama Marxism is concerned that his glass shattered world of Bearick can not stand up to his vote in 2008 for Obama. Beck’s brain has fractured along Obama lines in this fraud is not functioning mentally………as he does not believe America needs a showboat.

    What the hell is Obama Mr. Beck?

    To revisit at the gaycon meeting one year ago, Glenn Beck was advocating the division of the Republican party for a third party. A strategy which would re elect Mr. Obama easily in 2012.

    Obama and O’Reill and Beck are the same OOB sound of some satanic mantra in being liars, deniers and vilifiers.

    What is Beck afraid of but being exposed of selling his soul to Obama for his position at FOX as he is an Obama tool for the cartel. Beck like Ann Coulter is an Obamite. They both have verified Obama is Hawaiian without one shred of evidence. They both have mocked Birthers who are the foundation of the Tea Party while trying to hijack the Tea Party.

    Donald Trump is the one American in this. He doesn’t need to open this political mess as it would harm his business and would harm his media contracts. It is a sham slam for O’Reilly and Beck to keep saying Trump is doing this for publicity, because Mr. Trump has come out Pro Life and explained why he became that way.

    Donald Trump is the necessary good for this American people who are fed lies non stop by Obama frauds. If Beck and O’Reilly were not traitors to America, they would be demanding Obama’s Birth Records, college loans, college records, passports and asking what happened to all the Obama known associate files at the FBI which went missing.

    America doesn’t matter to Beck or O’Reilly as they sold their souls to the devil and are in bed with it’s false messiah, B. Hussein Obama

    • Something was going on, it was a very strange conversation that went on between Beck and O’Riley. After watching it, it seemed staged or programmed. It didn’t appear real. I don’t know if I think it was forced, but something wasn’t right. Beck was unlike himself. It is hard to describe. The video at the URL … so others can chime in.

  20. This will make you feel all warm and fuzzy: http://gatewaypundit.rightnetwork.com/2011/04/rino-lindsey-graham-freedom-of-speech-is-a-great-idea-but-were-at-war-video/

    That complicit asshat RINO Graham says we might have to limit some kinds of free speech (meaning burning a Koran) because we’re in a war and can’t have people inciting the enemy. Time for Graham to go away and never come back, too. Lindsay–you took an oath to preserve and protect the Constitution of the USA. What part of “Congress shall make NO LAW” don’t you understand with your tiny pea brain? Huh?

    • Do read the next Gateway Pundit article, which talks about how Harry Reid wants Congress to “investigate” the Koran burning, AS IF IT’S A CRIME. If cross burning on your own property, of your own property, isn’t a crime, then why would Koran burning on private property OF private property be treated differently?

      We CANNOT go down the road of politically correct appeasement, like Europe. Wake up, America, before it’s too late.

    • “Thou shall not burn a Koran”…I am sure you’d find the new law in the Stimulus Bill. Somebody just hasn’t read it yet.

      Who will want to appease their constituents and introduce a law making it a crime to burn a Koran? You know, like someone from Dearborn, Michigan. CAIR is on top of it.

      It’s on the calendar: Barry will be making apologies to Afghanistan for the U.S. and the minister’s behavior so they can stop the killing of innocents.

      When are the Christians going to rise up and start killing innocents because the Afghans are burning bibles? What, no tit for tat?

      • Double standards. Over and over…

      • You may be right, Bridgette. Since they slipped the funding for Obamacare in there unbeknownst to the idiots in Congress who don’t read what they pass, they just may have slipped all kinds of ridiculous things in that bill. But it’s not a law even if they did, because “Congress shall make NO law . . . “

      • I’m wondering if our ASS HATS in congress want Muslin Sharia law because they don’t want to pay the interest on our debt?

    • UN Staffers in Afghanistan Killed Due To Barbarism, Not A Burned Koran
      Saturday, April 2nd Snips

      On Friday, as many as 20 United Nations staffers were killed in Afghanistan. Reuters reported it this way (emphasis added)…

      Oh, really President Obama? They killed 20 people because of “differences” (like the burning of a Koran) that can be resolved if only people would have a nice rap session? I suppose he can now pat himself on his smug back for being such a good multicultural Citizen of the World ™. While President Obama and the media prostrate themselves at the altar of multiculturalism, what they are actually doing is proving themselves to be fools and racists.

      Because what they believe, and what they expect us to believe, is that the killers in Afghanistan are just poor dumb “brown people” who don’t know any better. They are so simple-minded, in fact, that they can be led astray and led to commit heinous acts of murder by one unknown pastor. Never mind the fact that they behead their own people and stone women to death for the horrendous crime of baring an ankle. Or, you know, being the victim of a rape.

      We philistines just don’t understand the nuance of their culture and the religion of Islam, you see

      Some things are just right or wrong. Some things are just good or evil. Some evil people commit acts of barbarism because they want to. Unlike President Obama and his fellow travelers, I refuse to excuse it and I refuse to ignore that reality


  21. I was wrong..it isn’t Barry apologizing. It is General Petraeus.
    Petraus strongly condemns Americans for burning the Koran! Americans are the bad guys. Afghans are still protesting in the thousands and Karzi has not stopped his people nor have the imams. Below is the statement, looking for the You Tube.

    Statement by ISAF Commander General David Petraeus and NATO SCR Ambassador Mark Sedwill

    KABUL, Afghanistan – In view of the events of recent days, we feel it is important on behalf of ISAF and NATO members in Afghanistan to reiterate our condemnation of any disrespect to the Holy Quran and the Muslim faith. We condemn, in particular, the action of an individual in the United States who recently burned the Holy Quran. We also offer condolences to the families of all those injured and killed in violence which occurred in the wake of the burning of the Holy Quran.

    We further hope the Afghan people understand that the actions of a small number of individuals, who have been extremely disrespectful to the Holy Quran, are not representative of any of the countries of the international community who are in Afghanistan to help the Afghan people.


    • The burning of ONE Koran causes an international incident? Unbelievable. Now Karzai wants a formal Congressional condemnation. Afghans want the US out of their country. OK. Will we be getting our aid money returned too? The money that Hillary assured us was not going to terrorist activities? Let them kill each other and get our soldiers out of there. If they want to act like beasts, let them. Tell Karzai to condemn the killing of innocents over a book and for burning and destroying Bibles. Who will stand up against these people…it isn’t the weak Lemon.

      Afghan leader calls on U.S. Congress to condemn Koran burning

      KABUL | Sun Apr 3, 2011

      Reuters) – Afghan President Hamid Karzai called on Sunday for the U.S. Congress to condemn the burning of a Koran by a radical fundamentalist U.S. pastor and prevent it from happening again, his office said in a statement.


      • As I said a few months ago….I think the Koran burning was a set up from the first time the FL man mentioned setting it on fire. To cause exactly the reaction it caused then and what reaction is causing now.

        • Another words, a set up. He did not burn the Koran for “US”.
          I hope everyone understand what Im trying to say here…trying to keep my head, “no” pun intended.

    MAZAR-I-SHARIF, Afghanistan (Reuters) – An Afghan border policeman shot dead two foreign soldiers on a training mission in north Afghanistan on Monday, a senior official said, the latest in a series of apparent “rogue” attacks by Afghan security forces on their mentors.

    A spate of “rogue” shootings by Afghan soldiers and police has underlined the pressure on U.S. and NATO troops as they try to train Afghan forces rapidly for a handover of security responsibilities that begins this year.

    Every once in a while, establishment control of the mainstream media cracks for a moment. In an effort to achieve higher ratings, mainstream news programs will invite guests on that promise to be “interesting”, but then they will say something that is not part of the script and the entire system will go into a state of chaos for a moment. One example of this happened recently when two CNN “infobabes” interviewed former CIA officer Michael Scheuer about the situation on the ground in Libya. They asked Scheuer some questions regarding the role of the CIA in Libya, but the interview rapidly moved in some directions that the “infobabes” were not anticipating. Instead of sticking to the “Republican” or the “Democrat” script, Scheuer ripped both parties and he detailed many of the reasons why we should have never gone into Libya at all.

    DARNA, Libya—Two former Afghan Mujahedeen and a six-year detainee at Guantanamo Bay have stepped to the fore of this city’s military campaign, training new recruits for the front and to protect the city from infiltrators loyal to Col. Moammar Gadhafi.

    The presence of Islamists like these amid the opposition has raised concerns, among some fellow rebels as well as their Western allies, that the goal of some Libyan fighters in battling Col. Gadhafi is to propagate Islamist extremism.

    “Tens of Thousands of Refugees Trapped at Christian Compound After Mass Slaughter in Duékoué
    Posted by Jim Hoft on Tuesday, April 5, 2011, 5:38 AM

    Hundreds of Christians were reportedly slaughtered last week outside the Salesian Saint Teresa of the Child Jesus mission in Duekou, Ivory Coast by predominantly Muslim troops loyal to president-elect Alassane Ouattara. Forces loyal to the UN-backed Ouattara made gains against the army loyal to sitting president Gbagbo, seizing swaths of western territory outside of their traditional northern stronghold last week.

    Rebels allied with Ouattara were also accused of carrying out revenge killings in a predominantly Ebrie village, an ethnic group that voted in large numbers for Gbagbo. … Thousands of refugees from the Ivory Coast in Liberia are reporting that the the pro-Quattara Muslim rebels are killing people and raping women. They are killing ‘everyone and anyone.’ There are even rumors of cannibalism.”

    It was reported today that the UN and French troops are firing on Gbagbo’s troops; in other words, siding with the Muslim Christian-slaughterers.

    “On Monday, French and U.N. helicopters opened fire in Ivory Coast and neutralized heavy weaponry, like rocket launchers and cannon, of loyalists of Gbagbo, who has refused to hand over power to Alassane Ouattara — whom the United Nations says won last year’s presidential race.”

    So which “civilians” are we protecting from slaughter? What’s the “humanitarian” mission here?

  28. Gadhafi, in letter, asks Obama to end air strikes
    1 hr 56 mins ago
    April 6, 2011

    WASHINGTON – Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi has appealed directly to President Barack Obama to halt what the Libyan leader called “an unjust war,” and wished Obama good luck in his bid for re-election next year.

    In a rambling, three-page letter to Obama obtained Wednesday by The Associated Press, Gadhafi implored Obama to stop the NATO-led air campaign, which the Libyan called an “unjust war against a small people of a developing country.”

    “You are a man who has enough courage to annul a wrong and mistaken action,” Gadhafi wrote in the letter that was sent to the State Department and forwarded immediately to the White House, according to a U.S. official who has seen the letter. “I am sure that you are able to shoulder the responsibility for that.”

    “To serving world peace … Friendship between our peoples … and for the sake of economic, and security cooperation against terror, you are in a position to keep Nato (NATO) off the Libyan affair for good,” Gadhafi wrote.

    Addressing Obama as “our son” and “excellency,” Gadhafi said that his country had been hurt more “morally” than “physically” by the NATO campaign.

    “Our dear son, Excellency, Baraka Hussein Abu oumama,
    your intervention is the name of the U.S.A. is a must, so that Nato (NATO) would withdraw finally from the Libyan affair,” Gadhafi wrote. “Libya should be left to Libyans within the African union frame.

    The letter, dated April 5, 2011 in Tripoli is signed by “Mu’aumer Qaddaffi, Leader of the Revolution.”


    • I guess his signature shows how his name should be spelled.

      He again calls good ole Barack his son. Look at how he spelled his name.
      Baraka Hussein Abu oumama.

      This spelling should be added to the list of names and identities that we have collected and are associated with the conman. Those are listed in Miri’s article.

      Who IS This Man? Open Thread


    • This explains the meaning and tradition of Abu…..Hmmmmmmmmm


      Abu Hussein’s invitation to Damascus
      By Sami Moubayed

      DAMASCUS – In the Muslim world, men take pride in their first born baby boy and they are often called “the father of X” for the remainder of their lives. In turn, first born boys are named after their grandfathers, and this explains why Syrians affectionately call Barack Obama “Abu Hussein” (father of Hussein).

      He does not have a baby boy – just two beautiful girls – yet that doesn’t really matter for the overwhelmed Syrians who woke up to hear the news coming in from Washington on November 5 that Barack Hussein Obama had become the 44th president of the United States.

      As far as they are concerned, his father’s name is Hussein and

      when Obama gets a baby boy, he is going to call him Hussein. That is the tradition in the Muslim world after all, and Obama comes from Muslim lineage in Kenya. Gamal Abdul-Nasser of Egypt was “Abu Khaled”, Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah is “Abu Hadi”, Palestinian Liberation Organization head Yasser Arafat was “Abu Ammar” and for masses in the Arab world, Barack Obama is “Abu Hussein”.

      • Great information Kathy. I could have sworn that Barack’s dad was named Barack and not Hussein. Shouldn’t he be called Abu Barack?

  29. The Battle against Gadhafi [News from Germany]
    NATO Fears War without End in Libya
    04/07/2011 Snips

    The front in Libya is barely moving as the country remains split between rebels and Gadhafi’s troops. The rebels are complaining of not receiving enough air support, but NATO is hardly in a position to ramp it up after the withdrawal of US fighter jets. The resulting stalemate underscores the lack of a clear strategy for the allies in Libya.

    The withdrawal of the American planes, which flew more than half of the sorties in the first two weeks of the air strikes, has weakened NATO’s potential force. With the organization having taken control of the operation, American planes are now only in standby mode, leaving the much smaller air forces of France and the United Kingdom to take on most of the workload. Appeals from the NATO leadership to member countries to send more aircraft have so far been met with little success.

    On Wednesday evening it was revealed that Gadhafi had written a letter to US President Barack Obama asking him to end the air strikes. It met with little success: Hilary Clinton immediately rejected the appeal out of hand and countered by demanding that the dictator go into exile.


  30. Who will take Qaddafi?
    Sunday, 17 April 2011
    By Umita Venkataraman and Sarah Ghasemilee – Al Arabiya SNIPS

    The Barack Obama administration has launched an intense search for a country that could provide refuge to Libyan strongman Colonel Muammar Qaddafi, The New York Times reported on Sunday.

    The Obama administration is looking to find a country that may want to offer shelter to Mr. Qaddafi in Africa. The United States and its allies are going ahead with the search even though Colonel Qaddafi has declared that he has no intention of leaving his country. Some observers have speculated that perhaps a deal for a graceful exit by Mr. Qadaffi may be in the works.

    The effort to relocate Mr. Qaddafi from his native Libya, however, will be complicated since he may be indicted by the International Criminal Court in the Hague for the atrocities committed against his own people and for the 1988 bombing of Pan Am flight 103 over Scotland.

    US officials only have a narrow list of potential host countries. Three officials in the Obama administration told The Times they were considering finding a country that has not signed or ratified the Rome Statute, which requires countries to turn over anyone being indicted for trial by the ICC. The United States is also not a signatory due to concerns that its military officers and intelligence officers could be prosecuted.

    Close to half of the 53 countries of Africa have not signed or ratified the Rome Statute so Mr. Qaddafi could be offered haven by any of them. Although Colonel Qaddafi had close dealings with leaders from Chad, Malawi and Zimbabwe, it is unclear which if any will emerge as a candidate.

    “We learned some lessons from Iraq, and one of the biggest is that Libyans have to be responsible for regime change, not us,” a senior Obama administration official told the newspaper. “What we’re simply trying to do is find some peaceful way to organize an exit, if the opportunity arises.”

    The report came after weeks of bombings by NATO allies; pressure on both the military and Qaddafi aides have failed to oust the man who has ruled Libya with an iron fist for 32 years.


  31. He was in Gadhafi’s government, yet we are giving him safe haven? Why? If he was opposed to him, why did he stay in the government thereby support the madman? So he has chemical weapons too.

    Shock claim: Gadhafi deployed assassins to kill officials in N.Y.
    ‘He may take desperate action inside Libya … this is a madman’

    April 17, 2011

    NEW YORK – The New York-based Libyan deputy ambassador to the United Nations, who recently defected from Moammar Gadhafi’s government, claims he has information Gadhafi hired assassins to kill him. “We have even information that he has already hired some people to kill us,” stated Ibrahim O. A. Dabbashi, deputy U.N. ambassador for the so-called transitional Libyan government.

    Dabbashi was referring to himself and to his colleague, Libyan Ambassadar Abdurrahman Mohamed Shalgham, who works with him out of the Libyan mission in New York. Dabbashi made the charges today in an interview with Aaron Klein on the latter’s radio program on New York’s WABC Radio.

    Dabashi continued: “Certainly he can buy people to do the job. He has a lot of money outside. We understand in the ’90s he managed to transfer billions of dollars and tons of gold outside of the country. And maybe inside the country, in the southern part of the country and now we have information that they had been transferred to some banks in Chad.”

    Dabashi called Gadhafi a “madman” who could use chemical weapons on his own people. “I think he may take desperate action inside Libya,” Dabashi said. “Let’s say if he has chemical arms he may use it against the Libyan people. This is a madman. He is enjoying killing the people. I am saying that because I know the guy.”


  32. Obama’s Libyan Rebel Allies Murdering Rape Victims (“Honor Killing”)
    17 June 2011

    In all the controversy of Obama’s undeclared war against the Libyan regime of Mohamar Gadaffi, a big question has been mostly ignored: who exactly is it Obama is defying Congress and spending billions to defend? Well according to just one report, the Libyan “Rebels” Obama champions are no less barbaric than the ones he is bombing. The families of women raped by Gadaffi’s thugs are murdering them in a spate of Muslim “honor killings” in rebel regions, as the BBC reported…

    Libyan women and girls who become pregnant through rape risk being murdered by their own families in so-called “honour killings”, according to Libyan aid workers. “In Libya when rape occurs, it seems to be a whole village or town which is seen to be dishonoured,” says Arafat Jamal of the UN refugee agency, UNHCR

    Gadaffi’s rapists often rape women in front of their own fathers or brothers. Those women are the most unfortunate of all. Since those rapes are witnessed, the women are most likely to be murdered by the barbaric Muslim men, who do this not to save the female victims, but to cleanse their own twisted consciences in an act of evil.

    “To be seen naked and violated is worse than death for them,” says Hana Elgadi. “This is a region where women will not go out of the house without covering their face with a veil.”

    Worse than death – for WHOM? The female victims, or their misogynist relatives? Perhaps some women often do wish for death, because it would never occur to them that they can recover, get help and therapy, and SURVIVE to teach other women and change the pitiful state of women in Arab and Muslim cultures, where under Sharia Law they are literally treated no better than cattle.

    For those who are raped elsewhere, the UNHCR staff is rushing to get abortions for them, to prevent the pregnancy from showing – thus notifying their bothers or fathers that it is fine and dandy to KILL them.

    “Time is against us,” says Nader Elhamessi from the Libyan aid agency, World for Libya. “For the moment pregnancies can be disguised, but not for much longer. Many fathers will kill their own daughters if they find out they have been raped.”

    “It is killing done with love,” says Ms Elgadi. “They believe they are saving the girl.”

    “Killing done with LOVE“? These are the psychopaths Obama is supporting? Yet another example of why the so-called “Arab Spring” is a pathetic joke for women.

    For women, it is always “Arab Winter”.


    • Maybe we should put Huma and her Muslim Sisterhood mother on this case! They’re concerned about the “place” of women in society. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if Islam had similar strictures for men seen naked? Hmm? Since they cut off the hands of thieves, what might they cut off in the case of a situation like Weinergate? Twisted sisters.

  33. Time for government attorneys to stand up to Obama
    Hugh Hewitt 06/19/11 Snips

    It isn’t clear yet what Caroline Krauss, the acting assistant attorney general for the Office of Legal Counsel in the Department of Justice, and Jeh Johnson, the general counsel of the Department of Defense, told President Obama about the War Powers Act and the president’s Libyan adventure, but if the New York Times is correct, they both advised the president that “they believed that the United States military’s activities in the NATO-led air war amounted to ‘hostilities’ ” as defined by the War Powers Act.

    If this account is correct, the lawyers must believe the president is breaking the law. (Some of us think the act is unconstitutional, but that opinion hasn’t been voiced by anyone on Team Obama.)

    Ought lawyers in the position of Krauss and Johnson follow the examples of Richardson and Ruckelshaus? After all, not only is the president said to have refused their advice, he then went and found Harold Koh, legal adviser in the State Department, who was ready and willing to support the idea that our activities in Libya don’t add up to “hostilities.”

    This is worse than simply rejecting the advice of the DOJ and DOD lawyers charged with giving it. It is forum shopping and sets a precedent that encourages a president to go out and find the opinion he wants rather than the one the DOJ and his senior military lawyer is giving him.

    If Koh hadn’t proved to be so compliant, where would the president have turned next?

    • ““These documents are jaw-dropping. No wonder we had to file more FOIA lawsuits and wait over two years for them. If the American people had known the truth – that Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and other top administration officials knew that the Benghazi attack was an al-Qaeda terrorist attack from the get-go – and yet lied and covered this fact up – Mitt Romney might very well be president. And why would the Obama administration continue to support the Muslim Brotherhood even after it knew it was tied to the Benghazi terrorist attack and to al Qaeda? These documents also point to connection between the collapse in Libya and the ISIS war – and confirm that the U.S. knew remarkable details about the transfer of arms from Benghazi to Syrian jihadists,” stated Tom Fitton, Judicial Watch president. “These documents show that the Benghazi cover-up has continued for years and is only unraveling through our independent lawsuits. The Benghazi scandal just got a whole lot worse for Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.””
