Al Qaeda Wasn’t ‘on the Run’
Weekly Standard, by Stephen F. Hayes

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 9/5/2014 5:06:29 AM

In the early morning hours of May 2, 2011, an elite team of 25 American military and intelligence professionals landed inside the walls of a compound just outside the Pakistani city of Abbottabad. CIA analysts had painstakingly tracked a courier to the compound and spent months monitoring the activity inside the walls. They’d concluded, with varying levels of confidence, that the expansive white building at the center of the lot was the hideout of Osama bin Laden. They were correct. And minutes after the team landed, the search for bin Laden ended with a shot to his head. The primary objective

al-Qaeda stopped being on the run January 20th, 2009. Just as every single "progressive" who voted in President Weakest Horse intended.

Obama´s administration evidently is incapable of telling the truth about anything. It consists of the most corrupt self-serving bunch of liars this country has ever known. Everything that is reported, done or even anticipated is executed through the lens of political advantage. Obama is an extremely partisan hack who is constantly fighting a battle with the opposing party. He sees every Republican as an enemy to be defeated and is much more committed to that fight than he ever has been to defeating any terrorist organization. That is the only war that captures his attention and he is doing everything in is power to win. Obama is as destructive as any terrorist organization and is just as committed. Republicans had better wake up to the threat that Obama is their enemy and he means to defeat them by any means. He is confident that he can withhold any information that reflects negatively on his policies and so far, he has been successful.

That Mr. Obama said something in public that wasn´t factual pretty much characterizes his administration.

His executive style is to provide a sideshow whereby he tells people what they want to hear, while main events take place behind the scenes. Thus far Mr. Obama has shown no predilection to inform himself about main events.

Allow me to summarize this excellent, very revealing article: this administration purposely withheld the treasure trove of documents recovered during the Bin Laden raid, and not only from the public but also from other need-to-know defense and intelligence agencies. Furthermore, they purposely misrepresented the information contained there, and misled the public and Congress on its implications.

Some officials, such as Brennan, flat out lied.

Why are these people not yet under arrest?

The most damning statement (IMHO) in this article.

"Officials at the Defense Intelligence Agency and CENTCOM responsible for providing analysis to U.S. troops fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan wanted to study the documents. But the CIA had “executive authority” over the collection and blocked any outside access to them."

We had soldiers in the field and withheld information that might have saved some lives.

A reason that no matter what the threat we can not send our troops into combat under this administration. He will just get them killed with no hope to achieve an adjective.

#9 Why are these people not under arrest?

Because they are just one part of the Marxist Democrats party which includes the justice department as well as the Mass Media. You don´t for one minute believe any of the other parts would put their comrades in any type of jeopardy when they are and integral and necessary part of their agenda to destroy America from within, do you?

There has been no "full exploitation" because, IMHO, that wasn´t bin Laden they killed on that raid. Where is the proof that it was? We saw the bullet riddled bodies of Uday and Qusay. We watched Saddam´s execution live on television. We have never been given one molecule of proof that it was actually bin Laden in that house. No photos, no DNA match, nothing. And then the body of whoever it was, was dumped in the ocean within hours. All of the other people in the compound - wives, servants, guards, etc were whisked away, never to be seen or heard from again. Where are they?

And then Seal Team 6 was outed by Biden and most of them were killed when their helicopter was shot down.

All of which means that there was probably nothing much to "exploit".

It was all a political stunt for the 2012 elections. If a Republican had claimed this accomplishment but given no proof, the media would have crucified him. But because their messiah has brown skin, they swallowed the scam whole.

Do I care that documents were withheld from the public? Not really. Intelligence is often protected for the sake of ongoing missions.

The question is, for what purpose.

And BO, as he always does, acted not in the Country´s best interest or in the interest of truth, but instead in his OWN BEST INTEREST FOR REELECTION. He operated in a political mode rather than a presidential mode. He protected himself rather than the country. He LIED to the American people yet again.

As time uncovers the depth of the slime of this administration, people will be appalled.

Steve Hayes´ reports are jarring, sadly, in that they deliver fact after fact in a coherent narrative. Jarring because hundreds of news sites fail at such a simple recipe. USA Today just sacked dozens of staff because they never could master the basics of their own industry.

We have "al Qaeda on the run" was only a silly buzzword that Obama is so well known for.

Can you picture any Republican saying...

"Yes we can!"
"We are the ones we´ve been waiting for!"
"Fired up. Ready to go!"
"Forward!"

Played backwards at 33-1/3 rpm Obama´s slogans say
"Enable al Qaeda"
"Destroy the middle class"
"Destroy the healthcare system"
"Destroy the military"
"Destroy our European Allies"
"Destroy our Southern Border"

Most Texas abortion clinics shut down
as abortion rights recede in South
Christian Science Monitor, by Patrik Jonsson    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 10/4/2014 7:48:03 AM     Post Reply
ATLANTA — Texas, America’s second-most populous state behind California, saw 13 of its last abortion clinics turn away women on Friday, after a federal appeals court upheld a law that practically guarantees that only a handful of clinics will remain open in the state. The strictest-of-its-kind Texas law requires abortion providers to build hospital-grade facilities and obtain sometimes impossible-to-get hospital admitting privileges. After signed into law last year by Gov. Rick Perry (R), the law forced most of the 41 clinics operating to close. Thursday’s ruling wiped out a brief victory this summer for abortion rights proponents,

The president promises to lawlessly amnesty millions of illegal aliens on his own say-so, enabling them to get work cards, Social Security numbers, driver’s licenses, EITC, foreign travel documents, and the rest. But there are executive powers that he really does possess that he’s not using. Senator Sessions has helpfully provided a number of “lawful, constitutional executive actions” that the president should already be undertaking but isn’t: Complete the border fence that Congress has previously passed into law; Create the exit-entry system to track foreign visa-holders, which Congress has repeatedly mandated; Cancel visas

How Ebola Compares to

With Ebola making its way to the United States, people are rushing to find more information on the deadly disease. The Centers for Disease Control released a new chart on how contagious Ebola is compared to other diseases. The results may surprise you, according to IJReview. What you’re seeing is an evaluation of how contagious the Ebola virus actually is compared to previous epidemics, namely: Hepatitis C, HIV, SARS, Mumps, and Measles. As Michaeleen Doucleff reported, these little icons of pink and red people reflect the disease’s relative R0 or R(nought) scores. The red person is the disease carrier, and the pink people

Should we be worried about Ebola? That’s the question on the minds of many Americans given the first documented case on U.S. soil this week. And now there is a second possible case, someone having contact with Thomas Duncan, the first U.S. case of Ebola. Thomas Frieden, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reassures us, “I have no doubt that we’ll stop this in its tracks in the U.S.” President Obama also told us two weeks ago that “the chances of an Ebola outbreak here in the United States are extremely low.” Tell that to the 100 Texans who

Commencement speeches can be amusing, inspiring or, in the worst (some would say even the best) case, a bit dull. Schools tend to choose corporate CEOs, politicians and celebrities to send off the graduating class with a speech meant to give graduates a glimpse of what they can achieve if they work hard in the years that lie before them. Goddard College, a small liberal arts school in Plainfield, Vt., wanted a different kind of speaker. The graduating class chose a cop killer. A video recording was arranged so that Mumia Abu-Jamal could speak to the students from Mahanoy State Correctional

The U.S. economy added 248,000 jobs in September, and the unemployment rate dropped to 5.9 percent. But the labor force participation rate continued to fall, average hourly earnings seem frozen, and over 13 percent of workers are either out of work, involuntarily working part time or too discouraged to keep hunting for jobs, and 20 percent of teenagers are out of work. In short, two cheers for the latest report, but hold the champagne. Sales of new homes rose 18 percent in August from July, but sales of previously owned homes, 90 percent of all sales, fell 1.8 percent, and

It’s called dereliction of duty when one knowingly dismisses the faithful execution of his or her prescribed duties in fulfilling their responsibility. I said so Monday evening with Greta von Susteren, and will continue to do so. And if anything represents “high crimes and misdemeanors” it’s the dereliction of duty that has resulted in the deaths of Americans – by beheadings. Furthermore, it is a dereliction of duty that has placed the national security of the United States of America at risk.

Despite the numerous indications that Yisrael was inspired to choose his manner of murder and to carry it out by his immersion in Islam, authorities profess to be puzzled as to why he did it, or at least certain that his actions had nothing to do with that most misunderstood of religions, Islam.

A presidential defeat isn’t an easy thing to bounce back from. And Mitt Romney did it twice. So it was understandable that after he lost the presidential race in 2012, he was adamant about closing the door to the possibility of a third campaign. But recently, speculation is whirling that Romney may not be so adamant anymore. When asked if he was running in a New York Times interview published earlier this week, Romney said : “I have nothing to add to the story. We’ve got a lot of people looking at the race,” he said. “We’ll see what happens.” That response, which

Speaking at a Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors event last night, Hillary Clinton decided to talk about Alexis de Tocqueville. The problem? She got it wrong -- by about a hundred years. "There´s a wonderful phrase that was first used by Alexis de Tocqueville, who came to the United States in the very early 1930s and traveled around our country," said Hillary Clinton, a probable 2016 presidential candidate. "And he was so amazed at how Americans organized themselves -- you know, coming from aristocratic Europe, which was totally top-down and hierarchical -- he couldn´t believe how many of us were joiners.
