Why The White House Ignored
All Those Warnings About ISIS

Daily Beast, by Eli Lake

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 7/6/2014 5:04:36 AM

Team Obama was told, over and over, that the Iraqi army couldn’t stop a terror group that was ready to pounce. But Washington was a prisoner to its paradox of an Iraq policy. On November 1, 2013, Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki visited the White House, and made a rather stunning request. Maliki, who celebrated when the last U.S. troops left his country in 2011, asked Obama for American drone strikes on his country again; that’s how serious the threat from Sunni insurgents led by the extremist group ISIS had become. Twelve days later, Brett McGurk, a deputy assistant secretary of state

When your enemy is Tea Party Americans instead of Islamofascists, it can tend to muddle your thinking just a wee little bit..

Lets all not kid ourselves any longer. From his Cairo speech in his first apology tour to the latest shipment of arms to Syria Obama has been clearly working to facilitate the various groups aligned with the Muslim Brotherhood.

The latest effort to send a couple billion more of our tax dollars to the same group that now comprises the ISIS "freedom fighters" who were supposedly Syrian "freedom fighters" to whom we were previously smuggling arms to from Benghazi is just one more example.

The White House did not ignore the warnings. It just pretended to ignore them to perpetuate the standard lame version of "plausible denial" we know as "Obama didn´t have a clue before he read it in the newspaper or saw it on TV.
[Proof indeed that he does watch FOX because the others do not report anything until after Obama admits he has already heard of it.]

Gee, it´s almost like he wants the ISIS/Sunni/Muslim Brotherhood side to win over the Iran/Russia/Shiite nexus. Hey maybe that´s why he helped them in Libya, Egypt, Syria and now Iraq. That way the new caliphate can have a Sunni Muslim Brotherhood flavor and please his backers since school days.

So we go from an Obama-initiated withdrawal from Iraq, to flying fifty(50) sorties a day by three hundred(300) personnel who are THERE, on the ground, to only to hear Ben Rhodes say Obama is still on the fence(..hasn´t.. but reserves the right..) about using military action? Go or get off the pot. What is he waiting for?! This has been a problem for weeks! Obama simply can´t fight back, especially if it means harming a Sunni fighter.

Let´s not forget though, that our enemies have now taken to fighting amongst themselves; somehow, that´s a bad thing?

Yes, he squandered the sacrifices we´ve made, but in the end, if our enemies have stopped totally focusing on us and now desire to eliminate one another, I think we should sit back and watch the unfolding drama.

I´m sure Val Jar has the situation well in hand. [sarcasm off]

Obama is a traitor, Has always hated this country as did his mother and grandparents. He enjoys the trappings of his presidency while systematically destroying our culture, freedoms and way of life in order to turn us into an Islamic fascist state. Morons like Pelosi and Harry Reid play along for their own nefarious reasons. God help us..

Why?...Perhaps we should look no further than the six card-carrying Muslim Brotherhood operatives currently "serving" on Mullah Barry´s White House Staff and occupying key positions in his administration:

-Arif Alikhan---Assistant Secretary Of Homeland Security For Policy Development

-Mohammed Elibiary---Member of The Homeland Security Advisory Council

-Rashad Hussain---U.S. Special Envoy to The Organization Of The Islamic Conference

-Salam al-Marayati---Co-Founder of The Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC)

-Imam Mohamed Magid---President of The Islamic Society Of North America (ISNA)

-Eboo Patel---Member of Obama´s Advisory Council On Faith-Based Neighborhood Partnerships

#4 nails it. The White House supports the terrorists and they have been the instigator and weapons supplier in every major disturbance in the ME. The only thing that´s working in our favor is that those animals can´t exist without fighting each other over their religious disagreements.

Both Bush 41 and Bush 43 should have used the same strategy, bomb the stuffing out of Mecca, Baghdad and all of their major cities and let the dogs fight over the scraps. Guaranteed there would not have been another 9/11 or any other terrorist act for a long time.

I had to give a like to almost every post in this story. Why? Because almost every one of them is right.

Ineptitude is what they want you to think, but furthest from the truth. Obama is much smarter than some want to give him credit for. If you give him credit for being smart, you will understand that this was intentional, therefore well planned, and a multi-pronged approach by Obama for the exact outcome we see unfolding right now.

Why he will not act? He would be killing his own. The few that are willing to see, and admit the hurtful truth that Obama is a Sunni muslim, and fomented, aided, and abetted the entire thing, are the ones that get the full picture. Take nearly every post here as truth. It is, and was fully orchestrated for this outcome. We are all simply along for the ride, because of the willfully blind. Those who intentionally turned a blind eye to Obama because of political correctness are directly to blame, along with a complicit, lap dog media.

The lofo´s only voted for him because they were uninformed. We can only take responsibility for that, because we knew what the media was doing, and allowed it. That means, and meant, and still means, it is up to us, to inform.

Do your part. Educate a lofo, so maybe something like this will never happen again.

Going into Iraq was great strategy. Dubya gave our Muslim enemies a permanent problem. This was a good thing because S. Hussein gave the Baluchi terrorists such as Khalid Sheik Mohammed (who is still alive and well in Guantanamo) new passports when he controlled Kuwait. Iraqi embassies organized critical al-Quaida organizational meetings in Malasia, and funded who knows how much anti-American terrorism. Hussein was a threat and now Iraq is the gift that keeps on giving. Let the Shia and Sunni fight it out.

The Saudi Arabians cannot be too happy with Caliph Ibrahim just over the border. The Islamic state will turn to Damascus next, but after that the control of Medina and Mecca seems an excellent move for the new Caliph of all Muslims.

Saudi Arabia has a great Air Force we trained so if there is any bombing to be made in the Middle East let them do it (or the Israelis). Turkey is also profiting from the war in Syria so let Sunni Turks also go in.

Perhaps B. Hussein O. is a visionary and foresaw the Arab bloodbath in his speech in Cairo and killing of Gaddafi. s/

Maliki wanted us gone, we went.

The way it should have gone is, if Maliki wanted us gone, then Maliki should have went, we got a new leader who would sign the status of forces agreement and let us keep 10,000 troops (plus 15,000 contractors) in Iraq, and then none of this ever would have happened.

But neither Maliki nor Obambi are even minimally competent, and the upshot is likely to be just as ugly as can be.

Sarah Palin urges conservatives

Los Angeles Times, by Michael A. Memoli    Original Article

When Pat Roberts faced a conservative primary challenge this summer, he did what most Republican senators have learned to do: turn hard right. Now, facing an unexpectedly strong independent challenge, Roberts is doubling down. On Thursday, the three-term Kansas senator turned to tea party darling Sarah Palin to rally voters behind his flagging campaign. The former Alaska governor praised Roberts for standing with Sen. Ted Cruz a year ago during his marathon floor speech against President Obama´s healthcare law, which preceded a strategy that resulted in a government shutdown. "He [was] one of the few senators fulfilling campaign promises, doing what

The people who anonymously accused now-dead Sen. Daniel Inouye of sexually harassing Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand should come forward and make their claims in public, says Inouye’s last chief of staff. “I don’t think it is fair because Senator Inouye is no longer here,” said Marie Blanco, Inouye’s final chief of staff. “There’s nothing to back [the claim] up,” said Blanco, who worked for Inouye for 34 years. “Come forward,” she said. The scandal began this month when Gillibrand claimed in her memoirs that she was harassed by senators. But she refused to name the senators, even though she’s trying to champion the issue

Speaking about such modest restrictions on abortion as have been enacted over the past several years, Justice Ginsburg lamented that “the impact of all these restrictions is on poor women.” Then she added: “It makes no sense as a national policy to promote

President Obama has put America at the center of a widening war by expanding into Syria airstrikes against the Islamic State, the Sunni extremist group known as ISIS and ISIL. He has done this without allowing the public debate that needs to take place before this nation enters another costly and potentially lengthy conflict in the Middle East. He says he has justification for taking military action against the Islamic State and Khorasan, another militant group. But his assertions have not been tested or examined by the people’s representatives in Congress. How are Americans to know whether they have the information

Emma Watson, the actress best known for her role in the “Harry Potter” series, gave what many are calling a powerful speech at the United Nations this past weekend, in which she called on men to join the cause for gender equality. In launching the HeForShe campaign, she acknowledged that the term “feminism” has taken on a nasty “man-hating” connotation and encouraged men to stand as allies in the fight.

Grim forecasts released separately on Tuesday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the World Health Organization say that by the end of January, the Ebola epidemic engulfing Guinea, Sierra Leone, and Liberia will explode to at least 100 times its current size. An estimated 550,000 to 1.4 million people will be infected compared with the 5,347 so far. Scientists now report that 70 percent of infected patients are dying, up from 50 percent in previous reports. Shockingly, the Obama administration is pouring a staggering $750 million into only one of these three countries, Liberia, over the next six

President Obama spoke very well, as he often does, when he went before the United Nations to address the slaughter by the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. “No God condones this terror. No grievance justifies these actions. There can be no reasoning — no negotiation — with this brand of evil. The only language understood by killers like this is the language of force.” The president is right as rain about that, but am I the only one who thinks the president made a mistake by going to the United Nations before going to the US Congress?

And that’s not a good sign, in case readers wonder.

US intelligence sources tell Eli Lake at the Daily Beast that the bombmakers of Khorasan had worked to develop non-metallic bombs, including clothing seeped in explosive compounds, that could pass through airport detection systems. In the weeks [see update] before the airstrikes, however, the terrorist group “went dark,” just as intelligence officials

Normally, no one would care that in a recent Atlantic essay — “Why I Hope to Die at 75” — 57-year-old Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel argued that living to be 75 years old was long enough for anyone. After 75, Emanuel suggests, “We are no longer remembered as vibrant and engaged but as feeble, ineffectual, even pathetic.” But Emanuel is no garden-variety crackpot. Nor is he a wannabe science-fiction writer dreaming of a centrally planned planet of robust youthful humanoids. Unfortunately, he was one of the chief architects of the troubled Affordable Care Act and a key medical advisor to the Obama
