Why is the White House
playing politics with the
death of James Foley?

Telegraph [UK], by Rob Crilly

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 8/21/2014 4:50:16 PM

Why are White House officials and the Pentagon briefing on a failed raid to save James Foley, the journalist murdered by his fundamentalist captors in Syria? One downside is obvious. It is an admission of failure. [Snip] There is good reason why most special forces – including our SAS – keep operations secret. Now, the US has tipped of Isil that its special forces are already conducting operations in Syria. The element of surprise is diluted, if not lost altogether. And what about the hostages still being held? Several have been released in return for ransoms. Each one is now

Comments:
It is becoming impossible for me to type a comment these days. I see so many things wrong in so many ways with the administration, I don´t know where to start.

Waste of time to ask.
Because they can, that´s why.
To these dudes, everything is political. Death, disease, disaster, defeat--it is all about the regime and the legacy.
There is no game in town but politics. Pity Foley wasn´t black, because then he would have been a real hero.
If it is politics, it is just words. No guns, no boots, no bombs. Just words.
And words are cheap. Especially from this regime, which spouts words as if they were the methane emanations from a cow.
Alas.
Journalists, take heed: no one will help you.

Anytime the White House puts out information on what should be highly classified special operations missions, they think that Obama will turn out to be a winner just by approving the mission.

If the mission succeeds Obama can take direct credit, and if the mission fails they can interject that Obama did his part, but that the special operations units carrying out the mission are the people responsible for the failure.

The White House can even control whether the mission succeeds or fails by slow walking the relating intelligence information until it becomes stale before they approve the mission. Just saying!

Our dilettante president does not want to defeat the jihadis; he couldn´t care less about Syria, Ukraine, Putin´s ambitions, the ambitions of China, or even the fact that one third of the country he rules is on some form of public assistance. However, I suspect that the world of the near future , which will be his legacy, will have no golf courses for him to run off to or maybe no place to run to at all.

Because they are too stupid to be anything BUT political.
An American has his head cut off and we´re told "this isn´t just an American problem"?
Turn our forces loose, order Special Ops to capture Isil members, cut off their testicles and send them to their leaders. Repeat until they retreat or are all dead. THIS is the language they understand.

#8, Very thoughtful of you to write those kind words--you have no idea how much good they did.

I won´t give up--luckily I was raised while Churchill was still alive and my parents and everyone in the village just about worshipped old Winnie. ´Bout time for this rerun, eh?

Never give in--never, never, never, never, in nothing great or small, large or petty, never give in except to convictions of honour and good sense. Never yield to force; never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy.

A British Muslim convert has been arrested in Bangladesh on suspicion of recruiting volunteers to fight with Islamic State jihadists in Syria. Samiun Rahman, 24, was held in the Bangladeshi captial, Dhaka, six months after he is believed to have arrived in the country.

Just a day after an Arab terrorist carrying a knife and spike was arrested after infiltrating into the area near Nahal Oz, another Gaza terrorist was arrested on Monday after infiltrating the security border. The Gaza infiltrator was apprehended by the IDF in the Hof Ashkelon Regional Council area, after apparently breaking through the barrier during riots near the security fence earlier in the day. Dozens of rioters disrupted the order by the fence adjacent to the Netiv Ha´asara community to the north of Gaza. Concerns that one rioter had broken through the border led to extensive searches that eventually succeeded in

Jordan, which has joined a U.S.-led coalition waging airstrikes on the “Islamic State” (IS) group, said Sunday it has secured the country´s borders against "any threat," according to AFP. The government´s statement follows warnings from analysts that Jordan was taking a risk by joining the coalition. [Snip] "Precautionary measures have been taken to control the borders and protect Jordan against any threat," the statement said. Jordan’s Interior Minister Hussein al-Majali, briefing the cabinet, said security in the kingdom and at its borders was "good and stable. There is no real direct threat for Jordan." Jordan borders both Syria and Iraq, where the U.S.-led

The Secret Service was unaware for four days that a man had fired a high-powered rifle at the White House in 2011 in a ´fumbled´ response that left the Obamas furious, says a new report. Officers allegedly performed a string of security lapses after Oscar Ramiro Ortega-Hernandez shot at least seven bullets at the executive mansion in Washington from his car. At the time, President Barack Obama, his wife Michelle and their older daughter Malia were not at home, but their younger daughter Sasha and Mrs Obama´s mother, Marian Robinson, were inside.

She is leaving to focus on an international legal consultancy, Omnia Strategy, which she set up in 2011.

Aircrews flying combat missions over northern Iraq feel their task is “personal” because a British aid worker who was beheaded by Islamic State militants had once served in the RAF, sources said. David Haines spent 12 years as an RAF engineer before he later became an aid worker helping people in war zones to rebuild their lives. The 44-year-old was murdered in a horrific propaganda video after he was taken hostage inside Syria by fighters from the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (Isil).

Iran´s Deputy Chief of Staff has said that soldiers from the Islamic Republic were operating "in the field" together with Palestinian terrorist groups. Speaking to a group of senior military officers in Tehran on Saturday, Major General Gholam Ali Rashid appraised the extensive support Iran was providing for its proxies throughout the region. "Some of our commanders are in the field to give military advice to the Iraqi army, Lebanon´s Hezbollah and the Palestinian resistance movement," he said, according to the semi-official Fars News.

The support of Parliament for British participation in air strikes in northern Iraq is welcome but leaves crucial questions unanswered. The most serious flaw in the international response to the Islamic State threat is the failure to see Iraq and Syria requiring a common military and political strategy. The Islamic State terrorists have, effectively, abolished the international border between these two countries. To some extent this has been recognised by the United States, which has launched air strikes against terrorist targets in both countries. These air strikes, over a period of weeks, are likely to have a serious degrading effect on the terrorist

There is a sense of relief across the political spectrum that Britain is finally doing something in Iraq. It was impossible to tolerate the advance of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil) any longer, and now the UK finds itself part of an international effort with parameters of action that, the public is assured, will not lead to long-term troop presence or nation-building. Thanks in part to a rigorous parliamentary debate, the British people understand why they are in Iraq somewhat better than they did in 2003. [Snip] But what will happen next? It is obvious that Mr Cameron would have preferred Britain to have joined the wider

President Obama said the shooting death of a black teen by a white police officer last month in Ferguson, Missouri, exposed the racial divide in the American justice system that “stains the heart of black children.” Speaking at the annual Congressional Black Caucus Foundation dinner in Washington on Saturday night, Mr. Obama said the death of Michael Brown “awakened our nation” to a reality that black citizens already understood. “In too many communities around the country, a gulf of mistrust exists between local residents and law enforcement,” Mr. Obama said. “Too many young men of color feel targeted by law

Washington - The parents of Michael Brown said Saturday in an interview with The Associated Press they were unmoved by the apology of the Ferguson, Missouri, police chief weeks after their unarmed 18-year-old son was killed by a police officer. Brown´s mother, Lesley McSpadden, called for Chief Tom Jackson to be fired, and his father, Michael Brown Sr., said rather than an apology, they would rather see Officer Darren Wilson arrested for the death of their son on Aug. 9. "An apology would be when Darren Wilson has handcuffs, processed and charged with murder," Brown Sr. said. The young man, who was black,

The Justice Department is expected to ban profiling by federal law enforcement. Counter-terror investigators would be barred from undercover operations in mosques or other religious institutions unless there is reason to believe criminal activity is going on there, under a new policy expected within weeks. The new rules would ban profiling based on religion, ethnicity or sexual orientation and includes no exemption for national security investigations, the Los Angeles Times reports. The announcement of the new policy to crack down on law enforcement profiling was delayed for several months because of White House

A Canadian member of the loathed Islamic State claimed the group is plotting an attack on New York City — and will one day fly its flag over the White House. Days before Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi warned of terrorist plots on subways in New York City and Paris, a video emerged showing an ISIS shill named Farah Shirdon widening the scope of the threat. “God willing, we will make some attacks in New York soon,” he said in a video interview with Vice News last week. “A lot of brothers are mobilizing there right now.” He vowed that U.S.-based fighters are “mobilizing for a brilliant attack.”

Political pollsters have a tough job. They have to create formulas to determine if the person they are interviewing is likely to vote, and it is within this calculation that their reputations are made. Typically, those who are likely to vote in an off-year election are pretty set. They are the people who always vote in elections — with some motivated by specific issues. In a wave election, the number of those motivated by specific issues escalates, changing the electoral landscape as the candidates who are beneficiaries of this increased participation sweep to victory.
