Fear of ‘Another Benghazi’ Drove
White House to Airstrikes in Iraq

New York Times, by Mark Landler, Alissa J. Rubin*

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 8/9/2014 5:10:11 AM

WASHINGTON — On Wednesday evening, moments after finishing a summit meeting with African leaders at the State Department, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff delivered a stark message to President Obama as they rode back to the White House in Mr. Obama’s limousine. The Kurdish capital, Erbil, once an island of pro-American tranquillity, was in the path of rampaging Sunni militants, the chairman, Gen. Martin E. Dempsey, told the president. And to the west, the militants had trapped thousands of members of Iraqi minority groups on a barren mountaintop, with dwindling supplies, raising concerns about a potential genocide.

There will have to be an evacuation soon since these savages have a blood lust for infidels with a side order of plunder.

Incredible. What we are witnessing is the direct result of a feckless president who only sees through a political lens. His actions have caused nothing but chaos and suffering. He could not or would not see what we all knew would happen in Iraq when he decided to pull out our troops. He failed to make decisions that were prudent and now he continues to flop around looking for a strategy. This is the result of a man who is driven by ideology and is unable to rise above it. He is not a big picture thinker. He is a small man, a dangerous man, and a man completely out of his league. What is most disturbing is that most Leftists are just like him, confident in their ignorance. God save us from these people. They create nothing but chaos and call it progress.

The Kurds have begged for arms and equipment so they can fight the terrorists of ISIS. Obama ignored them. Now he makes a small effort after thousands have been killed and ISIS has half of Iraq.Why? Because he doesn;t want to face a political embarrassment with the election coming up in November. Obama is the embarrassment.

Obama is more concerned with Trey Gowdy´s investigation of Benghazi than any American stationed in Erbil or Baghdad. Safe bet that Obama is assembling a series of personal attacks on Gowdy and Repubs on his committee. Elijah Cummings will serve as the F-18 that delivers these strikes on Gowdy.

As Iraq crumbles, Obama will do his "How dare you question me about protecting Americans" act, just as he did in the debate with Romney. It´s all an act with Obomba.

I HAVE A DREAM: The President ascends the podium and says this:"I was wrong to blame all our ills on George Bush.Being President is very difficult.I should have worked harder to arrange for troops to stay in Iraq and help the people there.All of the bloodshed since then is on me.
I should have been president of all the people not just the Travons.I should have let Republicans help me with Health Care and together we could have brought a good product to America.In my arrogance,I did not do this.
My number one goal should have been to keep America safe and secure and to enforce the laws that the people´s representatives passed.That is my job and I have failed.It worries me deeply that people who wish to harm Americans may be getting into this country illegally.Therefore, I pray my successor seals the borders of this great land before it is too late.Hereby, I resign for the good of this country which gave me a home and great wealth and I ask forgiveness of my fellow citizens."

President Boko Obola has earned his new moniker.

He identifies with the beliefs and aspirations of the jihadist savage kidnappers of Black Christian schoolgirls much more than with the beliefs and aspirations of the schoolgirls (whose genitals are being mutilated and who are being converted into human bombs).

And of course, he has decided that bringing a fatal, incurable virus into the USA is a peachy idea.

Forget Obama for a moment (nice, huh!) and look at this noise from NYT, mostly the headline as it is not really supported in the article (that I actually clicked on and read), ´Another Benghazi´, what does that even mean? Another do-nothing administration? Another few Americans killed (and the rest formally silenced by CIA threats!)? How about the capital city of the Kurds falling - to rebels using US equipment, captured or otherwise acquired? Or is it really just about White House optics?

The Pesh Murga seem unimpressive after all, just more guys with AK-47s. This is unfortunate. Must we really arm them sufficiently and teach them to defeat US armor and artillery? Ugh.

"Fear" is what best describes Obie these days. He may seem to be swaggering through this morass he has created, doing a "whistling past the graveyard" bit, but he has to know that his legacy is rubbish and impeachment - even if it failed in the Senate - would be a very black blot on his copybook. And it is looming out there.

It´s my guess that he is self-medicating like mad these days...

Ebola to dominate Sunday shows

The effort to stop the Ebola outbreak in the U.S. and West Africa is expected to dominate Sunday news shows. The head of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and an expert from the National Institutes of Health will address the issue following the first diagnosed case on Tuesday in Dallas. Tom Frieden, director of the CDC, said Saturday that a travel ban to the affected countries fighting the spread of the deadly virus could hamper relief efforts and worsen the situation. He also said that the CDC has seen a jump in reported possible Ebola cases but, so

With one month until Election Day, Republicans´ chances for retaking the Senate and picking up seats in the House are improving. The GOP has been buoyed by positive public polling, while red-state Democrats are still struggling to find distance from President Obama. There are bright spots and even some unexpected new targets on the map for both parties, but the overall national environment seems to have ticked a bit toward Republicans.The GOP needs to win a net of six seats to retake control of the Senate, and Republicans seem better-positioned to do so now than they did through much of

President Obama famously derided the Supreme Court over the Citizens United decision in a State of the Union address. Obama’s bashing of that First Amendment decision is also central in the scandal involving Internal Revenue Service targeting of Tea Party applicants for tax-exempt status. Lois Lerner followed Obama’s lead to suppress speech. Thursday, in an address at Northwestern University, however, Obama unwittingly undermined a whole regime of regulation of election-related speech. As reported at The Daily Caller: President Barack Obama gave GOP campaigns and right-wing super PAC’s across the nation fodder to

One would think that Friday’s announcement that the unemployment rate had fallen to its lowest point since Barack Obama took office would be good news for the president. Yet as the unemployment rate has declined, President Obama’s job approval rating has worsened. So it’s not clear how much of an effect modest changes in the economy’s condition will have on his approval ratings. (Snip) The latest unemployment numbers will be the last ones released before the midterm elections, and Mr. Obama is trying to leverage them to his party’s advantage. On Thursday, he spoke at Northwestern University and talked up

Just when you thought you knew all the consequences of the Ebola pandemic, here’s another one: it could affect the supply of chocolate. Of course that doesn’t rise to the seriousness of illness and death, but it does show how much Ebola affects trade and production. An estimated 70% of the world’s cocoa beans come from the West African countries of Ivory Coast, Ghana, Nigeria and Cameroon. Ivory Coast is the world’s largest producer, exporting 37.8% of the world’s cocoa, according to the Wall Street Journal.

A record 92,584,000 Americans 16 and older did not participate in the labor force in September, as the labor force participation rate dropped to 62.7 percent, a level it has not seen in 36 years, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported on Friday. Six times in the last twelve months, the participation rate has been as low as 62.8 percent; but September´s 62.7 percent is the lowest since February of 1978. The participation rate is the percentage of the civilian noninstitutional population who participated in the labor force by either having a job or actively seeking one. Those not in the

The Obama administration found itself on defense Friday after former Defense Secretary Leon Panetta criticized the White House for its policies on Iraq, with the State Department and others publicly disputing his claims. Panetta chided the president´s team in his forthcoming memoir, excerpts of which have been published in the media. He alleges the White House didn´t try hard enough to strike a deal with Iraq in 2011 to leave a residual force of U.S. troops behind, in turn opening the door for the region to become a haven for the Islamic State. In newly published excerpts, he also criticized

The dictionary defines nepotism as, “the practice among those with power or influence of favoring relatives or friends, especially by giving them jobs.” It perhaps should come to no surprise to anyone even remotely aware of the ethical scandals permeating Democrats in the State Senate that a new scandal should emerge surrounding untoward hiring practices in the State Senate, and a cover-up by Senate Leadership. (More on that cover-up in a moment.) First I think it is important to recap that the Senate, as an institution, is clearly at an ethical low point.

In the first chapter that addresses the encounter, Dunham describes the "ill-fated evening of lovemaking" as awkward and hollow.

Deadly, irrational, and determined, the intruder snuck across a weakened perimeter. Eluding capture, the intruder was detained only after missteps and close calls. The spin began soon after the threat was isolated. Information was selectively leaked. Half-truths and untruths were uttered. Responsibility was avoided; privileges and credentials asserted; authority reasserted. Trust us. Remain calm. Don’t panic. This is the template of recent events.

What on earth is an ohbee-guynee? Apparently it is a weird Obamaspeak pronunciation of OB/GYN (pronounced oh-bee-gee-why-en). For the president’s benefit, let me specify that means a doctor who delivers babies and takes care of the lady parts.

It’s the “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.” A New York appeals court next week will consider whether chimps should have the same rights as human beings. The extraordinary proceeding is the result of a lengthy battle by animal-rights activists who argue that animals with human qualities — including chimps — are entitled to human protections, including freedom from captivity.

It is the stuff that nightmares are made of, and day by day it is getting worse. The Ebola epidemic, says Dr Margaret Chan, director-general of the World Health Organisation (WHO), is now “the greatest peacetime challenge” since the Second World War. Yet her own organisation’s tardiness, partly caused by cuts, together with reductions in--and misuse of--funds elsewhere, are largely responsible for Ebola spiralling out of control. [Snip] It’s just the beginning. At present the numbers of people infected are thought to be doubling in under 30 days--and the blue-chip US Center for Disease Control and Prevention predicts that, if Ebola

I’m always sceptical when I hear scare-mongering claims about diseases. From bird flu to SARS, we’re repeatedly told it’s going to be the new Plague that will wipe everyone out and then…it doesn’t. Probably because the scare-mongering itself makes people take it seriously enough to prevent it spreading. But there is something very sinister and frightening about this Ebola outbreak, which has so far infected 7,100 and killed 3,300.

In a speech in Boston, First Lady Michelle Obama left behind talk of exercise and school lunches, exchanging it all for bald politics by claiming that under her husband the US economy is now better off "by almost every economic measure." The First Lady appeared at the Strand Theater Friday to stump for Martha Coakley´s campaign for Governor of Massachusetts. Coakley needs help badly, as even in blue, blue Massachusetts, the race between Democrat Coakley and Republican Charlie Baker is essentially a toss up.
