MICHAEL MUKASEY: OBAMA AND TERROR- A FOUR YEAR SCANDAL

Obama and Terror: A Four-Year Scandal
http://www.commentarymagazine.com/article/obama-and-terror-a-four-year-scandal/

- Abstract

From the outset, the Obama administration’s handling of the most sensitive secrets of the war on terror has been worrisome. In April 2009, the Justice Department released previously classified memoranda that described the standards of the CIA’s interrogation program, thereby making known to our enemies the limits of what they might face if captured. The release also demoralized those within the intelligence agency who were told they could no longer rely on the memoranda—and would, therefore, be judged by a standard different from the one in place when they acted.

Two years later, following the killing of Osama bin Laden, revelations about the intelligence recovered in the raid on his Pakistan compound rendered much of that intelligence useless, because terrorists found out what we had learned. A few months after that, administration officials confirmed to the media that the United States had been involved along with Israel in implanting a computer virus in Iranian nuclear-enrichment centrifuges that caused physical damage, thereby justifying by our own professed standards any retaliation Iran might undertake. And, most recently, newspaper reports have disclosed planning for retaliatory operations against the terrorists who murdered our ambassador to Libya and military and other personnel present in our consulate in Benghazi.

DAVID MAMET: A NOTE TO THOSE JEWS PLANNING TO VOTE FOR OBAMA ****

www.jewishjournal.com.

A note to a stiff-necked people

To those Jews planning to vote for Obama: Are you prepared to explain to your children not the principles upon which your vote is cast, but its probable effects upon them?

Irrespective of your endorsement of liberal sentiments, of fairness and “more equal distribution,” will you explain to your children that top-down economic policies will increasingly limit their ability to find challenging and well-paid work, and that the diminution in employment and income will decrease their opportunity to marry and raise children?

Will you explain (as you have observed) that a large part of their incomes will be used to fund programs that they may find immoral, wasteful and/or indeed absurd? And that the bulk of their taxes go to no programs at all, but merely service the debt you entailed on them?

Will you tell your children that a liberal government will increasingly marginalize, dismiss and weaken the support for and the safety of the Jewish state?

Will you tell them that, in a state-run economy, hard work may still be applauded, but that it will no longer be rewarded?

Will you explain that whatever their personal beliefs, tax-funded institutions will require them to imbibe and repeat the slogans of the left, and that, should they differ, they cannot have a career in education, medicine or television unless they keep their mouths shut?

Will you explain to them that it is impossible to make a budget, and that the basic arithmetic we all use at the kitchen table is not practiced at the federal and state level, and to suggest that it should be is “selfishness?”

Most importantly, will you teach them never to question the pronouncements of those in power, for to do so is to risk ostracism?

Are you prepared to sit your children down and talk them through your vote on the future you are choosing for them?

Please remember that we have the secret ballot and, should you, on reflection, vote in secret for a candidate you would not endorse in public, you will not be alone.

SOS to CIA may have been sent way before attack
Despite a carefully narrated version of events rolled out late this week by the CIA claiming agents jumped into action as soon as they were notified of calls for help in Benghazi on Sept. 11, security officials on the ground say calls for help went out considerably earlier — and signs of an attack were mounting even before that.

The political action committee Special Operations Speaks called for an independent investigation of President Obama in the aftermath of the Sept. 11 massacre in Libya. “It remains uncertain if the tragedy in Benghazi was caused or compounded by Obama’s reckless inaction, gross negligence or incompetent leadership,” said Joe Stringham, a retired Army brigadier general, former Ranger and now chairman of the PAC.

MY SAY: PRESIDENT OBAMA LOVES DAYLIGHT SAVING TIME

WHY? BECAUSE HE CAN PUT MORE AND LONGER DAYLIGHT BETWEEN AMERICA AND ISRAEL.
http://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/obama-searches-for-middle-east-peace/2012/07/14/gJQAQQiKlW_story.html

“Look at the past eight years,” he said, referring to the George W. Bush administration’s relationship with Israel. “During those eight years, there was no space between us and Israel, and what did we get from that? When there is no daylight, Israel just sits on the sidelines, and that erodes our credibility with the Arab world. The White House does not confirm that Obama said those words. There also has been no explicit denial.

NO SELF RESPECTING SUPPORTER OF ISRAEL CAN VOTE FOR HIM…EVEN THE “ABORTIONISTAS” SHOULD UNDERSTAND THE PRIORITY OF SUPPORTING THE ONLY DEMOCRACY IN THE MIDDLE EAST WHICH STANDS AS THE ONLY BULWARK AGAINST RESURGENT ISLAM’S MARCH TOWARD CALIPHATE AND SHARIA…..

MARK LANGFAN: IRAN’S DESPERATE ABSENTEE VOTE FOR OBAMA

http://www.israelnationalnews.com/Articles/Article.aspx/12400#.UJZMNLROSJU
Op-Ed: Iran’s Desperate Absentee Vote for Obama

Iran’s mendacious announcement is really a last minute campaign speech for Obama. So Ahmadinejad votes Obama.
On what is practically the eve of the US election, Iran has attempted a “November Surprise”: Iran announced “Iran is ‘suspending 20% enrichment’.” The timing couldn’t be more “perfect” for Obama.

Except for one thing, it’s so transparent that Iran is trying to save Obama’s presidency that it is likely going to blowback against Obama. In fact, Iran actually showed the world the only US presidential candidate who will really properly deal with Iran’s nuke-enabled hegemonic quest to occupy Saudi Arabia and control 60% of the world’s oil supply: Mitt Romney.

Let’s start with reason #1 why Iran is seriously afraid of Mitt Romney. Iran and the world read Romney’s “secret” speech where he clearly stated about Iran:

“You are right, which is a nuclear Iran is an unthinkable outcome, not just for our friends in Israel and our friends in Europe, but also for us. Because Iran is the state sponsor of terror in the world, has Hizbullah now throughout Latin America, Hizbullah with fissile material. If I were Iran, and a crazed fanatic, I’d say let’s get a little fissile material to Hizbullah, have them carry it to Chicago or some other place, and then if anything goes wrong or if America starts acting up, we’ll just say, “Guess what, unless you stand down, why we’re gonna let off a dirty bomb.” This is where we head, where American can be held up and blackmailed by Iran, by the mullahs, by crazy people. So we really don’t have any option but to keep Iran from having a nuclear weapon.”

ROBIN SHEPHERD: ON POLLING AND METHODOLOGY

http://www.thecommentator.com/article/1972/are_the_opinion_polls_biased_on_the_us_elections_ Are the opinion polls biased on the US elections? If Obama’s supporters look for good news from the polls, they’ll find it. Pradoxically so can Romney’s. Can the polls be trusted? As if it wasn’t confusing enough for non-Americans trying to work out who’s going to win the elections on Tuesday — who outside […]
