Report: Obama Delayed James Foley
Rescue a Month, Fretting over
His Image and Golfing

Breitbart InstaBlog, by Dan Riehl

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 8/24/2014 11:50:04 PM

According to a new Sunday Times report by Toby Harden, "Pentagon sources said Foley and the others might well have been rescued but Obama, concerned about the ramifications of US troops being killed or captured in Syria, took too long to authorise the mission." It´s claimed that Obama was concerned about his administration being Carterized had the mission failed. For President Barack Obama the decision to send in the Night Stalkers was an agonising one. The audacious bin Laden raid in Pakistan had been a success but also preying on his mind

Comments:
0bama didn´t seem to have the same "problem´ when trading five terrorist leaders from GITMO for an Army deserter. And, this is without notifying Congress, thereby breaking specific established law that no one seems to be able to enforce.

It comes down to just one thing; Øbama is a moral coward, incapable of making the tough decision the office requires.

Can he be impeached now for dereliction of duty and other crimes and misdemeanors? If not why not.

2 - I imagine same as always - any impeachment action would have to wait until after the Nov elections. Without a majority in the Senate an impeachment vote in the House is just an exercise in futility. And, if started now it would mobilize the Dem base to actually vote in Nov. Right now we benefit from them being lazy and uninformed...

Cold political calculations seem to be all that matters to the White House. I guess we shouldn´t be surprised when you recall how Benghazi was in flames and he went to bed early, so he´d be in tip-top shape for a Hollywood Gayla the following day.

It´s hard to believe and "leader" would dither and twiddle thumbs once the location of a hostage is known by intelligence operatives. Most of us would be anxious to learn of the location to immediately order a rescue mission. No better way to screw up the window of opportunity than hesitating - a day late and a dollar short.

Hagel´s statement, "The operation went flawlessly, they weren´t there", was good for a chuckle. So that is flawless, aye? lol. It makes one wonder if Hagel was implicitly criticizing Obama.

This is unconscionable. First Benghazi and now this? Obama does not have a moral compass. He has nothing inside him that urges him to feel compassion and move heaven and earth to save the lives of Americans. I can´t imagine leaving a fellow American to the brutal hands of these savages and not doing everything within my power and the power of the United States government to save them. How cold and heartless do you have to be to dither around while people are in grave danger. When your political optics are more important than the life of a fellow human being, then you have a serious moral failing. Obama is the ultimate narcissist and views his reality through a political lens. He is a morally deficient coward.

It is no excuse for this kind of dithering but Obama knows how he demagogued Bush for failures that were not failures. When all the western intelligence services believe that Saddam had WMD it is not a lie to say so. I believe to this day that he did have them and they were hastily shipped to syria before the invasion then the whole thing was demagogued to death by Obama. Obama never respected the understanding that the presidents foreign policy decisions were not to be politicized. Every Bush policy was politicized but Bush has said nothing about Obama policy. Obama defends himself as if everyone was like himself. Having ignored this gentleman´s agreement himself he is paralyzed by the possibility of getting a dose of his own medicine!

Outstanding observation, OP.

He has no problems giving Muslims a blank check but give him a white WASP, who may (God forbid) be a Christian, and it´s time to tee up.

If this story is true, and given his blithering dithering on any matter than could save America and Americans, then he does not deserve to continue to hold this Office.

His is not the behavior of a rational human being. Having read "Blood Feud" and assumed it was true, we know that Valerie Jarrett is pretty much in charge of his decisions and that she and Michelle are now joined at the hip.

So since Obama cannot bear to personally and boldly make decisions that might reflect badly on his egocentric hide, he just makes no decisions at all, leaving it to others.

Who is really responsible for Foley´s death? Ultimately, Obama. But who is making his decisions for him? That person(s) should be in prison in the cell next to Obama´s. At the very least.

FTA: “I’m told it was almost a 30-day delay from when they said they wanted to go to when he finally gave the green light. They were ready to go in June to grab the guy [Foley] and they weren’t permitted.”

In a letter to his parents, memorized by a fellow hostage, James said, “I really feel I can touch you even in this darkness when I pray.”

The hearts and souls of all felt the prayerful touch of James except the heart and soul of one – the one who could have saved him.

Well now I understand the very precise wording of the military regarding the reason they did not rescue hostages. In the interview something close to this was said: "We were on the ground longer than expected."
Obama played games with the timing of the binladen approval also.

I have said it before and this "dithering" about Foley makes it clear that Obama had nothing to do with the Osama Bin Laden capture. Zero is incapable of making decisions and as such he would have been totally incapable of making the monumental decision about Osama. He would have never been able to pull the trigger on that operation. The SEALS and their commander I will bet, pulled the trigger and told Zero about it afterward so the fraud could take the credit. If in fact, Zero had made the Osama decision, then the Foley decision would have been a much easier one for him. Having taken out Osama successfully, he would not be worried about being Carterized and he certainly would not have taken a month to do it.

This fraud POS that masquerades as a president is a danger to every one but dictators and terrorists. Will we survive the next two years? Only God knows.

Okay, kids, NOW do you know why His Holy Worshipness went back to laugh and golf and fist bump? This is getting so ridiculously easy to see through and yet the conservative press is STILL trying to create "nuance" and "gosh, Obama is detached" and my personal fave "is he getting bored with the job?"

Have we seen other tyrants in history do similar things like oh, I don´t know, maybe Lenin, Stalin, Mao, Castro (especially Castro), Polpot, Chavez, Achmadimadabadoo? Anybody? Anybody? Bueller? Bueller?

Figured it out yet? Probably not. Maybe when Krauthammer solves this easy puzzle and everyone suddenly praises the good Lincoln chalice using doc yet again for being so brilliant for discovering something no one could ever possibly figure out years before, you will. It´s too late now so by then it´ll be WAY too late.

Okay nobody gets it, HE DID NOT DITHER!!! HE WANTED THIS TO HAPPEN!!! And he was happy it happened. Hence the happy fist bumps with Val´s relative on the golf course. Do you seriously think he was so happy about a freaking golf game? Geez, this is so easy to see. He wants this country to fail. Detached? Image? Are you kidding me? He´s got a bunch of total fidiots playing a "Why Did He Laugh After His Speech" game. He´s laughing his head off and fist bumping Val because everyday the tyranny bonds get tighter and tighter while we wonder how many pimples are on Justin Biber´s face. Man, this country would be on the space ship being told they need to eat, they would eat like gluttons and nuance and excrutiate over "Why are the aliens looking at us like we´re tasty treats? Oh that stupid tea party back on earth refused to go along because they think the aliens are actually going to eat us and they think "To Serve Man" is a cookbook. What a bunch of tin foil hatted, black helicopter nuts."

That´s YOU folks! And you got two more years of "it´s going to get a LOT worse" to look forward to.

Yemen State Media:
Prime Minister Resigns
Associated Press, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 9/21/2014 12:05:36 PM     Post Reply
Sanaa, Yemen - Yemen´s prime minister resigned Sunday, the state news agency reported, following days of violence that left more than 140 dead and prompted thousands to flee their homes. The official SABA news agency gave no details on the move by Mohammed Salem Bassindwa, and it was not immediately clear if his resignation had been accepted by the president. Bassindwa took office shortly after former president Ali Abdullah Saleh was forced to step down in 2012. He has been in office since February 2012 and has since been the target of sharp criticism for his inability to deal with the country's pressing problems.

In the Muslim world, where women are denied basic human rights — from divorce to drivers’ licenses, no protection from abuse or honor killings — there is no worse place than Afghanistan. The United Nations, Save the Children and the Thompson Reuters Foundation have ranked Afghanistan as the worst place in the world to be a woman, a mother, a child and a newborn. The average life expectancy for a woman is 44. Little surprise, then, that girls there don’t want to be girls. In her new book “The Underground Girls of Kabul: In Search of a Hidden Resistance in Afghanistan”, journalist Jenny Nordberg explores the little-known

Washington - As the United States begins what could be a lengthy military campaign against the Islamic State, intelligence and law enforcement officials said another Syrian group, led by a shadowy figure who was once among Osama bin Laden’s inner circle, posed a more direct threat to America and Europe. American officials said that the group called Khorasan had emerged in the past year as the cell in Syria that may be the most intent on hitting the United States or its installations overseas with a terror attack. The officials said that the group is led by Muhsin al-Fadhli, a

The Secret Service on Saturday launched a security review to learn how a man carrying a knife was able to get inside the front door of the White House Friday night after jumping a fence and sprinting more than 70 yards across the North Lawn — the first time that has ever happened. Within seconds, the man who relatives said served as a sniper in the Iraq War got to the front double doors of the North Portico, turned the brass knob and stepped inside the vestibule. There he was grabbed and subdued by an officer standing post inside the door. He was carrying a folding knife with a 2-1/2 inch serrated blade.

How Gary Hart’s Downfall
Forever Changed American Politics

On a scalding July day five years ago, I found myself hiking in Red Rocks Park, just outside Denver, with Gary Hart. The copper cliffs were brilliantly lit in the midday sun, which burned our uncovered heads as we trudged up a steep incline toward the amphitheater that Franklin Roosevelt’s Works Progress Administration ingeniously carved into the boulders. We had come because Hart wanted to show me something, and as we made our way uphill, I was soon breathing heavily in the mile-high air. But I was more aware of Hart, who, at 72, labored audibly despite his legendary ruggedness.

The ISIS fighters took women as hostages.

When Jeff Bezos tells writers to keep quiet, they obey. Every fall, Mr. Bezos, the founder of Amazon, hosts Campfire, a literary weekend in Santa Fe, N.M. Dozens of well-known novelists have attended, but they do not talk about the abundance of high-end clothing and other gifts, the lavish meals, the discussion under the desert stars by Neil Armstrong or the private planes that ferried some home. Writers loved it. There was no hard sell of Amazon, or soft sell, either. The man who sells half the books in America seemed to want nothing more each year than for everyone to have a good time. All he asked in return was silence.

3D-printed out of carbon fiber plastic

This is a car that is made almost entirely out of plastic. The Strati took 44 hours to make, and it´s completely driveable.

Local Motors, the Phoenix-based 3D-printing company that built the car with help from Oak Ridge National Lab and the manufacturing company SABIC, says it´s the first to 3D print both a body and chassis together. Other models, such as the Urbee, also use 3D-printed parts, but with a more traditionally manufactured frame. Everything in the Strati that could be made

Islamabad - Fourteen Pakistani detainees were released from U.S. custody in Bagram Prison in Afghanistan and repatriated to Pakistan on Saturday, a Pakistani legal firm representing some of the prisoners said. Justice Project Pakistan has been representing several Bagram detainees since 2010 in a bid to force the Pakistani government to bring them home. So far no information has been provided by the Pakistani authorities on the names of the released detainees or their current whereabouts, said Sarah Belal, a lawyer with Justice Project Pakistan. One of the released detainees is 29-year-old Abdul Halim Saifullah, Belal said,

Three and a half months have come and gone and the Pentagon has offered no clarity on what happened to alleged Army deserter and Taliban collaborator Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl. Fellow soldiers and other critics fear the military’s now-delayed investigation is shaping up to be a whitewash. The case has become a political powder keg for President Obama. Since he traded five imprisoned Taliban leaders for Bergdahl, the US Government Accountability Office has declared the swap illegal, and nearly two dozen House Democrats have joined Republicans in officially condemning the move for making “Americans less safe.”

The Nusra Front, al-Qaeda´s affiliate in Syria, has killed one of the Lebanese soldiers it had been holding in captivity, according to Lebanese security sources and a Twitter statement. The killing of the soldier, if confirmed, will be the first to have been carried out by the Nusra Front, which along with ISIL is holding over a dozen more Lebanese soldiers captive. The Twitter statement on an account affiliated with Nusra Front said on Friday that the soldier had become "the first victim of the intransigence of the Lebanese army which has become a plaything in the hands of the Iranian party", referring to Hezbollah.

Washington - The Secret Service is coming under intense scrutiny after a man who hopped the White House fence made it all the way through the front door before being apprehended. President Barack Obama and his daughters had just departed the White House on Friday evening when an intruder scaled the north fence, darted across the lawn and into the presidential residence, where agents nabbed him. The security breach triggered a rare evacuation of much of the White House, with Secret Service officers drawing their guns as they rushed staffers and journalists out a side door.

After declaring war on the Tea Party and often showing nothing but contempt for grassroots conservatives that powered Republicans to record gains in the 2010 midterm elections, Karl Rove whined that the GOP may not take back the Senate this year because of the lack of enthusiasm for his establishment-approved candidates. Writing in the Wall Street Journal, Rove notes that even though Obama´s "job approval numbers are lousy, no Democrat in a competitive Senate race polls regularly above 50%, GOP enthusiasm is high, and independents are trending Republican... each passing day provides evidence as to why a GOP Senate majority is

WASHINGTON — Kurdish fighters battling ISIS desperately want more guns and armor, but they already have a secret weapon: The fanatics they’re fighting fear that if they get killed in combat by a woman, they won’t go to heaven. “They have many female battalions, as you know who fought very bravely,” Rep. Ed Royce (R-Calif.), who chairs the House International Relations Committee, told The Post of the Kurds. Royce, who met this week with the foreign minister of Kurdistan, cited recent reports of young female Kurdish troops “laughing” at ISIS forces they had turned back. “These ISIL soldiers apparently believed that if

The man who was the top Marine general from 2006 until his retirement in 2010 says President Barack Obama’s strategy to defeat the terrorist group the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria is doomed to fail. “I don’t think the president’s plan has a snowball’s chance in hell of succeeding,” retired Marine General James Conway, who served as the 34th Commandant of the Marine Corps during the end of the Bush administration and the beginning of the Obama administration, said at the Maverick PAC Conference in Washington, D.C.

That rare respiratory illness sickening children around the country continues to crop up in new places. It has been confirmed in 22 states, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Friday, appearing in three states where it had not been previously: Georgia, Michigan and Washington state. These children are facing an uncommon enterovirus strain. While enteroviruses in general are quite common, this particular strain — enterovirus 68 — has not cropped up terribly often since it was first identified in 1962. It can cause severe breathing problems, a particular danger for children who may suffer from asthma or other

Shawn Donovan, director of the Office of Management and Budget, said on Friday that if you don’t believe in climate change and support federal spending to fight it, you believe the earth is flat. “The failure to invest in climate solutions and climate preparedness doesn’t get you membership in a fiscal conservatives caucus,” Donovan said at the Center for American Progress in Washington, D.C. “It makes you a member of the Flat Earth Society.” Donovan, who formerly ran the Department of Housing and Urban Development under President Barack Obama, is now in charge of the arm of the executive branch

CBS is putting its Hillary-inspired drama "Madam Secretary" on Sunday nights next to "The Good Wife." In Friday´s New York Times, TV critic Alessandra Stanley discussed the two shows and slammed Hillary. "Hillary Rodham Clinton is the obvious inspiration, but this is Hillary with a human face," she wrote. During the Cold War, reporters would suggest a kinder, gentler Marxist regime was "communism with a human face." Stanley continued: "Téa Leoni, who has a husky voice and a loose, engaging manner, is an unusually likable beauty. As Elizabeth McCord, she has all the brains and determination of the original and none

Sarah Palin has come out in defense of her daughter Bristol who allegedly punched a man in the face during a family brawl. The former Vice President candidate hailed her child as a ´straight shooter´ in a Facebook which appears to be her first veiled reference to the fight two weekends ago. The 23-year-old is said to have repeatedly hit the owner of a home in Anchorage, Alaska, during an outburst in which her brother Track broke four ribs and her father Todd was left with a bloody nose.

The French did for President Obama on Friday what they refused to do for his predecessor — they joined the fight in Iraq. Two Rafale fighter planes armed with laser-guided bombs “entirely destroyed” an Islamic State munitions depot and killed dozens of ISIS fighters, making France the first coalition country to make good on its promise to battle the murderous militants. “Other operations will follow in the coming days with the same goal — to weaken this terrorist organization and come to the aid of the Iraqi authorities,” French President Francois Hollande vowed. The French famously said “non” in 2003 when President Bush

SALEM, N.H. — Voters have soured on President Obama. National and statewide trends favor Republicans. And here in his new home state, Scott Brown’s truck is gaining speed. Analysts and recent polls have found Brown closing in on US Senator Jeanne Shaheen, the Democratic incumbent he is vying to unseat, in a race that has become increasingly nasty and expensive. Once largely dismissed by critics as an unlikely second act in a state he moved to only last year, Brown’s Senate bid is increasingly seen as a plausible path back to the US Capitol. Observers see a race that may be largely determined

The man who jumped the White House railing Sept. 19 deserves the right to live in President Barack Obama’s home, just as the president is allowing hundreds of thousands of border-jumping Central Americans to live in Americans’ homeland, says a new tongue-in-cheek petition posted at the White House website. “We urge President Obama to immediately and publicly recognize that Mr. Omar J. Gonzalez, an oppressed migrant, was merely looking for a better life when he entered the White House after going over the classist, divisive and needless fence,” says the petition, which was authored by D.A. King, founder of the Georgia-based
