It looks like the Obama propaganda machine is in full force for the 2012 election. He never stopped campaigning & raising money – considering his skill set is limited to those of an Alinskyite disciple and community organizing, I am not surprised at this either – which explains why the country is doing so well. They have been controlling the press and have gotten real angry when the reporters haven’t stayed on message. The usual suspects in the LSM have tried hard, but in vain, to convince us that things are getting much better – suddenly 9%+ unemployment isn’t so bad when they constantly complained of a 4% unemployment during the Bush years for example – but even the most partisan hack sees through the bullshit. Their latest tactic, to blame the Tea Party for the US credit rating downgrade by the S&P, has also already derailed and failed miserably.
But have no fear, our Noble peace Prize winning prez and his team have plans, and now we find out that one of the big the plan is to use a great success by our military to make Obama out as a great warrior leader. It seems Hollywood is putting together a movie about how our SEALs bagged bin laden. One scheduled to come out just a month before the November 2012 elections. And the WH has given them full clearance to look at everything, just a few months after a critical operation when that intel is still hot and can be used to go after the personnel involved or damage the operational capabilities employed by exposing them, so they can make this movie.
Yeah, Hollywood. The place whose leftard dominated crowd of idiots’ idea of what the military is like produced such great fare as “The Hurt Locker” or that horrible “Green Zone” with Matt Damon, and whatever else anyone but the rabid anti-Bush leftists that ended up wasting their money watching these stupid works of pure unrealistic fiction most, if not all, of the sane public ignored at the theaters because they knew better. They are now making a movie about how our military killed bin Laden. And people are suspicious, as they should be, of both this effort and the timing. Especially when you find out these SEALs are now wasting time with Hollywood bozos, who I am sure aren’t going to use this movie to make Obama look good – that was a meant as an insult for those of you that aren’t quick enough to catch the sarcasm – instead of doing the work their country needs them to.
Maybe Obama’s people should stick to throwing lavish fundraiser parties where the elite get to hob-nob with the Hollywood celebs, eat & drink like kings, and dance the night away while Rome burns.
Are you one of the hundreds – if not thousands – of people who have inadvertently ended up on the no-fly list? Do you really need to travel, and want to take the train instead? Well guess what, dillhole? NO TRAIN FOR YOU.
Asshole Senator Chuck Schumer needs to look busy, so he’s doing this now:
A senator on Sunday called for a “no-ride list” for Amtrak trains after intelligence gleaned from the raid on Osama bin Laden’s compound pointed to potential attacks on the nation’s train system.
Sen. Charles Schumer said he would push as well for added funding for rail security and commuter and passenger train track inspections and more monitoring of stations nationwide.
“Circumstances demand we make adjustments by increasing funding to enhance rail safety and monitoring on commuter rail transit and screening who gets on Amtrak passenger trains, so that we can provide a greater level of security to the public,” the New York Democrat said at a news conference.
If you think TSA at an airport is bad, wait’ll you get a load of Amtrak TSA.
Seriously, when are we going to stand up and tell these ruling class nitwits that we’ve had enough security theater? Do morons like Schumer really not see that with every move like this, they guarantee that even dead, bin Laden is still winning the game?
As I suspected and as the news hinted, it now looks like we finally got Osama because the US went at it alone instead of telling the Pakistanis we were going after him as was the case in the past. That’s because the Pakistanis were actually playing us and helping him.
American diplomats were told that one of the key reasons why they had failed to find bin Laden was that Pakistan’s security services tipped him off whenever US troops approached. Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence Directorate (ISID) also allegedly smuggled al-Qaeda terrorists through airport security to help them avoid capture and sent a unit into Afghanistan to fight alongside the Taliban.
The claims, made in leaked US government files obtained by Wikileaks, will add to questions over Pakistan’s capacity to fight al-Qaeda. Last year, David Cameron caused a diplomatic furore when he told Pakistan that it could not “look both ways” on terrorism. The Pakistani government issued a strongly-worded rebuttal.
But bin Laden was eventually tracked down and killed in compound located just a few hundred yards from Pakistan’s prestigious military academy in Abbotabad. The raid by elite US troops was kept secret from the government of Pakistan. Only a tight circle within the Obama Administration knew of the operation. In December 2009, the government of Tajikistan warned the United States that efforts to catch bin Laden were being thwarted by corrupt Pakistani spies.
Explains why the guy was so effective at hiding out for so long, despite our major effort to find and bag his ass. The Pakistanis played us, and played us good, and this revelation should reshape our policies and actions towards them. At a minimum we should stop giving them any money or aid. And we should be seriously concerned that so many in the military and intelligence agencies of a nuclear armed Pakistan are in bed with al Qaeda, a sworn enemy, that has repeatedly said it wants to nuke the west. Doesn’t this qualify Pakistan as a terror enabling state: our worse night mare? This is going to be one heck of a foreign policy problem for us. At least Pakistan now should be made aware that any WMD action by al Qaeda means we obliterate their country. Might serve as a deterrent, might not. We are dealing with insane religious fanatics and evil men here in most cases.
Think about it: how can we ever feel secure with al Qaeda having ties to a government that not only has sympathies for their cause, but has nukes? And what’s China’s role in all this? Pakistan is one of their proxies – against rival India – and I am sure China has going-ons there that are definitely not in our interest. Seriously, while the death of bin Laden is a big score, the revelations that come with it should make us wearier than ever that we can win this war against the terror enablers without resorting to a brutal “hammer them all down” approach. Does the west reach a point where it simply looks at the cost vs. return and decides that since these people want to drag us all back to a dark age that it’s us or them? These revelations are not good for anyone I think, but we can not ignore them. Looks like team Obama is going to have to do some serious growing up here.
