White House Can’t Explain Iraq
Objectives to Congress

Washington Free Beacon, by Adam Kredo

Original Article

Posted By:Flyright, 8/12/2014 7:54:50 AM

Just two weeks after the Obama administration asked Congress to repeal the Iraq war authorization, the White House is failing to adequately explain to lawmakers the legal justification and concrete objectives for its airstrikes against the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL or ISIS), according to congressional insiders apprised of off-the-record briefings on the matter.Questions are now being raised on Capitol Hill about how the White House intends to legally justify its military campaign, particularly in light of its efforts to repeal the Authorization for Use of Military Force in Iraq (AUMF). Obama administration officials waited to brief senators

Legal justification?
Because Obama and Valerie Jarrett say so.

I do understand that Mrs. Obama provided the Code Name for the new Operation. (http://dailycaller.com/2014/07/16/michelle-obama-says-soldier-was-caught-in-a-fire-fart/)

Opponents of this administration need to do a better job in marketing their criticism. The low information voter (LoFoMoFo), needs clever jingles or catchy phrases. Objectives must be Exit Strategy. Christian Genocide must be Ethnic Cleansing of Religious Minority.

Always happy to help.

Much to the chagrin of many Democrats, I´m sure, Obama himself and the Democrat Party now own this entire mess, not just in Iraq but all over the world, and especially in America.

OPEN LETTER TO DEMOCRATS IN CONGRESS: You and your guy own it all now. Obamacare, our lack of national defense and security, the jobs situation, the economy, the immigration mess, the possible outbreaks of disease and crime due to massive immigration, the breakdown of the rule of law....you own it all.

Most of all, Democrats, you, not George Bush, own the responsibility the next time American becomes the victim of a terrorist attack on our own soil.

You alone, because you lack the guts to remove this POTUS from a position he is not taking seriously, will be blamed and rightly so. You watched the same pressers and listened to the same lies we heard but you refused to believe them. Or you chose to ignore them.

You, Democrats, will be seen by history as the Party of Yes -- to the man who brought America down.

When the country is being run by ideologues whose hubris can only be compared to know-it-all middle schoolers, I sincerely doubt any meaningful strategy is in place. Those people do not consult. They do not confer with knowledgeable people. They do not listen because they believe they know better than anyone else.

However, reality has a way of slapping them in the face. We have seen it time and time again. They are mentally incapable of considering any viewpoint but their own. Obama and his administration will lurch from crisis to crisis because they are incompetent and totally out of their league. Liberal ideology is incapable of solving the great problems of our day because it is not based in reality and rejects critical, reasoned debate. They don´t need any stinkin´ objectives!

It would help the WH explain to anybody, let alone Congress if

1. they had ANY objectives based on the countries best interests
2. That the current issues are directly because of prior bad decisions by the WH and that cannot be stated
3. That all decisions by this WH is based on PERSONAL interests but that cannot be stated
4. they had not been so coddled by the MSM that they were forced to actually think through any issue
5. Congress does not need to know because they are not part of the living constitution according to the great constitutional lawyer
6. Worse Congress is a separate power and that cannot be allowed

From the minute W went to the UN in 2002 to explain why Saddam Hussein must be deposed, 95% of Democrats and 100% of progressives did nothing but help facilitate an American defeat in Iraq (partly as revenge for W not letting Gore cheat him out of victory in Florida 2000, which the exposed-as-crooks Democrat party was still seething about). Among those who wished the US military to fail in Iraq was none other than B. Hussein, lifelong "progressive". One suspects the things His Majesty "can´t explain" about this (or rather, won´t admit) are multitudinous.

I agree with #16, all BO´s actions are taken from a political standpoint of making HIM look good.

The problem is, there is no polled solution to this mess, a mess made far worse by BO´s former incompetent actions. Americans see Iraq spinning out of control and are frustrated that after spending so many lives and so much money there it is all falling apart. They see the people being slaughtered and it is disturbing and tragic. BUT, they do NOT want to go back into these countries either. They are left with an infuriating situation with no good solutions.

BO´s problem is that they see no solution and ask "HOW could we have gotten to this point?". They KNOW that Iraq was reasonably stable when BO took over. Now it is the worst it has been. They are blaming BO for letting things get to this point that has no resolution.

THAT is the real problem that BO faces, the deep dissatisfaction of the American people with no possible resolution that makes BO look good.

Objectives, objectives, he doesn´t have any stinking objectives. One of the reasons why he is always on vacation, is because he can´t reasonably answer any of his actions or activities which are always geared towards the destruction of the United States of America.

Face it folks, he and his henchmen must be kicked out of office in November and in 2016. He plays golf while the world burns. The Republican Party.. they are fighting the nations gravest enemy, the Tea Party. And so it continues.

He doesn´t like the western world.
He likes the Muslim Brotherhood.
He likes ISIS.
He has to do something to pretend he doesn´t support ISIS so he´s doing as little as possible.
After the elections he will pull everything out and by February 2015 radical Islam will be in full control of Iraq.

Obama is an elitist and a crony capitalist. His ONLY agenda was to transform America so HE and HIS SUPPORTERS could extract every dime they could out of this once thriving nation. This is why he would rather put people on the government dole than provide jobs. Jobs transfers money from the wealthy to the working class... and that is not what they want. They want the middle class to fund the poverty class by borrowing against the national debt, which the working class will have to pay.
He has no foreign policy other than hope he can keep things quiet with his rhetoric, but it isn´t working.
He was not brought up as an American and has no loyalty to America or Americans. He is just milking this nation for all he can get... nothing more.

Barry played the game of politics and it ended up biting him in the butt. His clever ploy of waiting until enough Iraqi civilians had been slaughtered to melt the hearts of the most ardent peaceniks so they wouldn´t protest his actions only resulted in needless deaths that could have easily been prevented if he had authorized attacks on ISIS before they had gained a foothold in the cities. Now we have thousands dead and an enemy that will be harder to remove than an infestation of bedbugs, all so he wouldn´t have to admit that he surrendered prematurely to the terrorists. Congratulations once again, President Putz. Enjoy your golf, even though you probably suck at that too.

What?? You expect him to actually work?? Come on be serious! It is too much trouble putting together pesky objectives. Who wants to actually that? No, it is so much easier to just fly by the seat of his pants.

I don´t know about you all, but I see so many parallels with the fall of Rome. The only difference is that there is still information and truth out there to inform anyone willing to try to fix this mess. In Rome, the majority were completely distracted by the bloody games in the Colosseum and other goodies their government was throwing at them to pacify the masses so they wouldn´t notice everything crumbling around them (hmmm...still sounds like here). Okay, I guess history is repeating itself.

Obama´s Speech on ISIS, in Plain English

Qua speech, Barack Obama’s address Wednesday on the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria was surprisingly terrible: a disorganized mess, insincere and unconvincing. To appreciate just how bad and bizarre it was, compare the president’s speech announcing a new air campaign in Iraq and Syria to Dwight Eisenhower’s 1958 statement on his decision to intervene in Lebanon with 14,000—14,000!—troops. The statement contains no chest-thumping about America’s leadership in science and medicine. No pivot to the auto industry and medical research. Eisenhower simply explained what had been done, and why.

Some Capitol Hill lawmakers are baffled. What does President Obama want from Congress as he begins the U.S. military escalation in Iraq and Syria? The question wasn´t answered by the president´s much-anticipated speech Wednesday night. First, Obama seemed to tell Congress to mind its own business. "I have the authority to address the threat from ISIL," he said, indicating he didn´t need or want any permission from the legislative branch to fight the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria.Then Obama added, "But I believe we are strongest as a nation when the president and Congress work together.

With his address to the nation Wednesday evening, President Obama revealed that he is a leader in deep denial about the threat the United States faces, and about the steps that are necessary to deal with it. In his remarks, Obama offered up a series of delusions, each of which point to the ultimate defeat of the United States in the war he has embarked upon. Delusion #1: Obama still thinks ISIS is the JV team. Here’s how he began his speech: We can’t erase every trace of evil from the world, and small groups of killers have the capacity to do great harm.

President Obama on Wednesday night outlined an open-ended campaign to combat the threat posed by the Islamic State, significantly expanding the counter­terrorism strategy that has been a hallmark of his presidency.Obama said in a prime-time speech televised from the White House that the United States will join “with our friends and allies to degrade, and ultimately destroy, the terrorist group known as ISIL,” using an alternative acronym for the group that has emerged in Iraq and Syria.Saying the United States is meeting the threat with “strength and resolve,” the president also sought to assuage the concerns of Americans who are
