Live from Afghanistan: Barack Obama To Continue Gloatfest Tonight

NOTE: I’ll be tweeting live during B. Hussein’s speech for Afghanistan. Please follow me to hear my take, and share yours.

As  even he he acknowledged during last Saturday night’s White House Correspondents’ Dinner, Barack Obama has developed a reputation for blaming his failed presidency on all the terrible things that he inherited. Ironically, his one success, the one which he and his apparatchiks have been trumpeting for the last several days, is one that would not exist but for the anti-terrorism policies he actually did inherit from President George W. Bush, all of which he vehemently opposed. Barack Obama stated repeatedly that not only does he believe that water boarding is “torture,”[T]orture is how you get bad information, not good intelligence.” One person who would strenuously disagree with those statements is American hero, Jose Rodriguez, the retired Director of the National Clandestine Service for the CIA, who served with the Agency for 31 years, the man who directed the interrogations of some of the worst terrorists on the planet, including KSM. From Newsmax:

But Rodriguez criticizes many Democrats for not backing the tough tactics that he said eventually led to bin Laden.

“Pelosi said that we only briefly mentioned waterboarding and left the impression that it had not been used,” Rodriguez writes, insisting that the California Democrat was fully briefed — by Rodriguez himself — about waterboarding and its use. He says that Pelosi posed no objection to the technique. “I know she got it.”

“There is no doubt in my mind that she, like almost all Americans less than a year after, wanted us to be aggressive to make sure that al-Qaida wasn’t able to replicate their attack.” He writes that “Pelosi was another member of Congress reinventing the truth.”

Many members of Congress have “watched too many episodes of the old TV series Mission Impossible — the part they liked best was the opening, in which the operatives were told that if anything went wrong, their leaders would ‘disavow any knowledge of your actions,’” says Rodriguez. …

Rodriguez said his team had legal clearance for everything it did — from waterboarding, on down to top-level terrorists like Zubaydah and Khalid Sheikh Mohammed.

“We made some al-Qaida terrorists with American blood on their hands uncomfortable for a few days,” he tells “60 Minutes” correspondent Lesley Stahl. “I am very secure in what we did and am very confident that what we did saved American lives.”

Pressed by [CBS’ Lesley] Stahl about charges that Zubaydah, who was waterboarded and sleep deprived, gave false information that wasted U.S. resources, Rodriguez replies, “Bull****!, He gave us a roadmap that allowed us to capture a bunch of al-Qaida senior leaders,” says the ex-spy.

It is preposterous and disgusting to watch this man shamelessly take credit for an important event in which he was only peripherally involved, which was accomplished by doing things that he and his left-wing buddies, including Joe “Always Wrong, Never in Doubt” Biden relentlessly ripped for years.

Recently a frequent Facebook poster stated “So Bush “kept us safe.” But Obama doesn’t get “credit” for Bin Laden. Interesting analysis.” It really didn’t require a lot of analysis to appreciate that giving the One credit for the victories in the continuing war against radical Islam is like giving Michael Dell credit for the success of Apple. At least Mr. Dell doesn’t try to take credit for that success.

Now, Barack Obama is in Afghanistan once again using our troopa as props for his campaign, celebrating the killing Osama bin Laden. Apparently this never-ending endzone dance is not a provocation, or as Obama and friends like to say a “recruitment tool” for the enemy.

Of course, like nearly everything else this bunch does, this gloatfest was so predictable. You were warned, but I’m sure that it doesn’t make it easier to keep from nearly throwing up as you watch this cringe-inducing display of unabashed display of cynical political expediency on parade.

  1. Leslie Stahl’s “fascination” with Islamists.

    It has been a long career of pro-Islamism “research,” by this eloquent reporter for CBS’ 60min.
    In the latest example (May, 13, 2012 http://www.cbsnews.com/2718-18560_162-962.html) she made  a piece about Gulen, the Turkish Islamic cleric/tycoon who “funds” schools in the US and turns them into revenues for his global empire.
    In quoting blogs that criticize Gulen as having a hidden Islamic agenda, she confronted one of Gulen’s representatives about it, but instead of waiting for an answer from the man, Leslie jumped and PROVIDED an answer of her own… ” Would you say it’s Islamophobia..?” The man, of course, agreed to the provided “answer.”
    This is typical Leslie Stahl.

    In fact, the entire program was not focused on the American English teacher who was fired for the sake of replacing her with a Turkish teacher… but on her fascination with the Turkish cleric. She was so memorized by his wealth… All you saw from her was, awe. Some “fearless” reporter, seeking the “truth,” alright. 

    (I remember, she once [last year] took an Arab-Palestinian word… his ficticious claim that he has been in the area for… “hundreds” of years… at face value. Never mind that no Arab can prove any connection to the land of the Jews beyond the 1800s… Or the latest admission from the horse’s mouth – Hamas to Egyptian media that “Palestinians” are basically half from Egypt, the other half from other Arab land…)

    Here are some suggestions to Leslie, if she were to be a bit less bias…
    Let’s see a bit reporting on the Goliath. Not just in power and size, but in… intolerance!

    1 – Checkout the usual venomous sermons in “moderate” mosques. Why not pick the March 15, 2012 example of top Islamic authority (mufti) calling to destroy all churches. Or the latest “moderate” Islamists (Egypt) call for jihad to march on Jerusalem as capital of a Caliphate?
    2 – Scrutinize the ocean of racism against non-Arabs from Arabia to Sudan (Afro-Arabs, massacring millions of non-Arab natives); Mauritania (slavery), through Iraq (Assyrians, Kurds, Blacks, Yazidis, etc., all still discriminated against); Syria (the Alawite apartheid genocidal regime), Libya, Gulf states (Oman, Kuwait, S. Arabia, Qatar, UAE, where Asian workers/slaves are constructing their impressive buildings, and/or Asian maids are basically sex-slaves); N. Africa (e.g. Morocco, Tunisia, Algeria, not just blacks, but Berbers natives to the land,  have for too long suffered immensely); Lebanon (which hosts 200,000 living in the same slavery conditions as the African slave/maid who committed suicide this year. Or the Ahmadis as well as children of black slaves at the hands of) Palestinian-Arabs; (the Dom-gypsies in) Jordan; (the indigenous al-Akhdam in) Yemen, etc.  Just because Arab Christians fear for their lives and won’t speak on camera against totalitarian Palestinian Islamic-apartheid, doesn’t mean, CBS should be silent….
    These are just the tip of the iceberg, non-Muslims are either second or third in almost all Muslim land. Not just in Iran/Pakistan/Afghanistan/S.Arabia/Palestinian-Authority/Egypt, etc. Even in “moderate” Turkey, especially on Cyprus.
    3 – Scrutinize the pro terror CAIR Islamic lobby (tied to criminal al-Arian).
    4 – Heck, you can even make a ‘special’ on dehumanization in Islamic schools. The favorite one is of course the sick notion that Christians are pigs and Jews as apes.
    5 – Last but not least, for CBS info… Terrorism against non-Muslims such as in Nigeria, Russia,  Egypt, China, Israel, India, Philippines, Thailand, etc., or even against Muslims who are ‘not Muslim enough…’ by jihadists, such as in Pakistan, Afghanistan, Somalia, Iraq, etc., is also intolerance, and a very bloody one!
