Conservative Media Elites, Progressives & The Blood of Boston

04232013

Well, bravo to the mainstream media – at least the Conservative mainstream media – for finally putting two-and-two together in understanding the role that political correctness plays in the ongoing conflict with violent jihadists and fundamentalist Islam. To say that they showed up “fashionably late” to the party is borderline sarcastic. Nevertheless, the subject has finally been broached and those of us who have had “three lanterns” in the church tower for over a decade are appreciative that this moment in time has come to pass. But this finally arrived at equation is just the first layer of a much deeper and more troubling convergence. And we all – each and every one of us – have to pray that a fickle news media will not “declare victory” in this singular realization.

For years, many of us in the new media have bared the full weight of speaking truth to power – power in this case being not only elected government, many of whom still choose to exist in denial of the facts, but the elites in the mainstream media as well, where fundamentalist Islamic violence is concerned. Many of us have been demonized and marginalized not only by those of a more liberal bent who level charges of bigotry and Islamophobia at us, but by those in the elite Conservative media who stood dedicated to ignore us for not having slapped down the $125,000 to get a “journalism” degree. Many outlets, both mainstream and on the Internet, cowered in the face of the issue, choosing not to run articles about the facts surrounding jihadi violence or ignoring the intellectual credentials of writers who carved out great swathes of their lives to fully understand the issue; autodidactic or otherwise.

It could be said that at this moment, those who have been ignored or rebuked by the “big boys and girls” with million-viewer television and 50,000 watt flamethrower radio shows, will prove their grit; prove their patriotism, by embracing the reality that it is the message, the education of our citizenry that matters, and not whether we gain fame or wealth examining an issue that threatens the very existence of a free world. As for me, I hope to be judged a patriot for the information I have advanced in an unselfish manner; simply asking for organizational support from time to time so that a roof could be maintained overhead and food could be placed on the table. Some answered unselfishly, most did not.

But now, after all of the “al Qaeda is on the run” rhetoric has been laid to waste, and the eyes of many in the Conservative mainstream media have been focused, it must be stated, without reservation, that our nation faces not a singular foe in a foreign ideology that seeks to expunge the American way of life from the face of the Earth, but three very real and very potent threats that, at present, are well on the path to seeing the demise of the United States of America, Islamofascism being only one of the three.

For years, I and others, including my wife Nancy, a dedicated educator and a formally trained constitutional expert, have been explaining the concept of “The Perfect Storm”; the convergence of three potent threats that together present a threat to our way of life in the United States, and through its destruction, the free world. Our non-profit organization, BasicsProject.org, is dedicated to educating the public on this “Perfect Storm.” Yet, for years the elites in the mainstream media have refused to acknowledge the hypothesis; have refused to allow our voices to be heard. So, it was with great happiness I began hearing the likes of Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity, and Bill O’Reilly – Beck being the first among them to do so, and going “all in” in his efforts, I might add – identifying the role of political correctness in the advance of Islamofascism. It is my hope of hopes that they are inclusive of the grassroots and autodidacts in their efforts because, quite frankly, without a constant push for the citizenry to learn, this will become just another news story; just another cycle, and everyone will soon return to watching “Desperate Housewives of the Jersey Shore in Gator Country,” or whatever inane garbage is captivating the low- and no-information voters today.

“The Perfect Storm” scenario consists of an external threat (Islamofascism) coupled with and facilitated by an internal threat (Progressivism, whose chief manipulative tenet is political correctness) targeting a constitutionally illiterate American populace (a population who fails to understand the worth and value of their rights). Is this a Right-Left or Democrat-Libertarian-Republican issue? No. This is an American issue and one that extends to the free world, as well.

Islamofascism, rooted in an almost fanatical devotion to Sharia Law, places the theocratic dogma of Islam above the inalienable rights realized and codified in the Charters of Freedom – the Declaration of Independence, US Constitution and Bill of Rights (Nancy would also include the Magna Carta, and she is right to do so). In doing so, the rights to freedom of speech, freedom of religion, freedom of the press; all the rights enumerated in the Bill of Rights and ensuing Amendments, are subjugated to the will of Sharia. A cursory examination of Sharia Law’s compatibility with the freedoms identified in the Charters of Freedom results in the realization of a total incompatibility between the two. One cannot live a life devoted to Islam and Sharia Law, and recognize the US Constitution as the law of the land, ergo; Islamofascism is a direct threat to the US Constitution.

Progressivism, essentially an American Fifth Column, emanates from the ideology of the Marxist/Leninist Era, and presents a menace from within. This ideology was first empowered under the Wilson reign – which advanced the lie of a “living Constitution” so as to expand government beyond the enumerated powers, and then enjoyed resurgence during the counter-culture revolution of the 1960s and 1970s. Today, this ideology, anathema to the Charters of Freedom, is taught at every level of our public education system – from pre-school to graduate school – in the form of “political correctness,” “multiculturalism” and “diversity.” This ideology – embraced by the likes of the “social justice” crowd – has evolved into a unique yet visionless one, and one which holds that our most basic constitutional tenets are the central cause for many of the social ills here in the United States and around the world.

This Secular-Progressive, Democratic-Socialist and/or neo-Marxist American Fifth Column ideology claims that our Constitutional Republic is, in fact, a Democracy, which our Founders and Framers vehemently opposed; understanding that Democracy did and does not protect minority rights. It employs the democratic process to promote moral relativism, multiculturalism and political correctness, doing so in an effort to silence those who would defend the basic foundational American principles, while pursuing an American form of Socialism in their place. This system of beliefs serves not only to grotesquely blur the lines between good and evil, bad behavior and civic responsibility, it goes to great lengths to negate the concepts all together.

The Progressive ideology promotes the utilization of an artificially created sense of self-esteem within our children while striving to denigrate the notion of individualism in deference to the group-think mentality, or the “it takes a village” philosophy, leaving them ill-prepared for the competitive world in which we live, and dependents of a state unable to compete at all.

The precepts of the American Fifth Column work to eliminate the benefits and rewards of a competition based free market society by instituting the notion that absolute socio-economic equality can be attained through government mandated entitlement and control, usurping the freedom of choice and alienating our constitutionally mandated individual liberty to define and pursue happiness. Anyone who dares to challenge the Progressive ideology is castigated as a “bigot,” a “racist,” and/or any litany of “phobes,” all in an effort to execute Rule No. 12 from Progressivism’s bible, Rules for Radicals by Saul Alinsky (who literally dedicated his book to Satan):

Rule No. 12: Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.” Cut off the support network and isolate the target from sympathy. Go after people and not institutions; people hurt faster than institutions. (This is cruel, but very effective. Direct, personalized criticism and ridicule works.)

With just this very basic understanding of Progressivism – and I urge you to read more on this (DiscoverTheNetworks.org has an indispensable summary of the movement accessible here) – it is obvious to the honest that Progressivism is not only antithetical to Americanism, but a direct threat to the Charters of Freedom.

Couple these two major threats to our nation, to our Founding Documents, to our liberty, with the fact that since the Progressives’ capture of the American education system, the importance of studying history has been marginalized, so much so that our nation, but for what can only be described now as an alarmed minority, stands constitutionally illiterate; unable to understand the value of the inalienable rights mandated by our Founding Documents and bequeathed to us by Natural Law, not government.

I liken it to the old adage about two children who have received the same bike, one given the bike, the other made to earn the bike. Invariably, the child who was given the bike was more prone to neglecting it, not understanding its worth, while the child who was made to earn the bike; that understood its worth, maintained it. This basic truth applies to our American Heritage and the continued welfare of our nation.

Without a solid understanding of the basic principles used by our Founds and Framers in establishing our Constitution it is impossible for Americans to recognize the worth of the American ideal. When the full values of freedom and liberty are not realized it becomes easy to incrementally relinquish our rights guaranteed under the Constitution.

Today, we do not have a populace, a citizenry, which is literate in constitutional philosophy; that understands the worth of their rights…and so they cede them. Further, without a basic understanding of the value of our founding principles and the worth of the American ideal, the American public is less inclined to be concerned with an unfettered access to un-manipulated, fact-based information; information needed to address many of the serious issues facing our nation, our nation’s leaders and the world; issues like violent jihad on the streets of Boston, New York, Any Town, USA.

With regard to the Boston Marathon bombings, it is without question that the Progressives among us have blood on their hands. Progressives in the media, in elected office and in leadership positions have consistently and absolutely denied the American public their right to examine the violent tenets of Islam by saying that to do so wouldn’t be “politically correct,” by saying it would be “insensitive to Muslims,” or that those who want to examine the facts surrounding the truth about the dichotomy between Islam and terrorism are “racists,” “bigots,” Islamophobic or otherwise “intolerant.” Progressives are the ones who concocted the politically correct policies that keep law enforcement from even using the word “Middle Eastern” when putting out a BOLO about a suspected terrorist. Progressives are the ones who established political barriers between law enforcement and intelligence agencies, stunting our nation’s ability to defend our citizenry from the savage acts of the hate-filled.

Progressives will undoubtedly call me a “racist,” a “bigot,” and an “intolerant Islamophobe” because I dare to speak the truth; because I have dared, for over a decade, to speak the truth, about Islam, about Progressivism and about our constitutionally illiterate culture, doing so at great personal expense; unrecognized by the now finally engaged elite Conservative media. So be it…if that is the price I must pay to be a good citizen; if that is the price I have to pay to be a good American.

I just pray, in my anonymity, that now the media elites have been born into awareness about “The Perfect Storm,” that they see the story through to its successful resolution; that they don’t drop this issue of national survival for the next “blonde girl goes missing” news item of another Lindsay Lohan DUI-Rehab-Back-to-Spoiled-Brat story. Honestly, all of our lives, all of our freedoms, depend on whether they do or not. That’s why there is freedom of the press…for now.

Benghazi: It All Trickles Down to Leadership

Michelle Stansbury

Michelle Stansbury

In the past few weeks, our government has melted the Benghazi ordeal into a murky puddle, clouded with games of “Not It” and garbled story lines.

Many throughout the ranks such as CIA Director David Petraeus have made it clear that, “No one at any level in the CIA told anybody not to help those in need; claims to the contrary are simply inaccurate”. It is obvious not one person is willing to take the fall, leaving President Barack Obama the only man left standing to provide an answer; as it should be. Because it doesn’t matter who is to blame quite as much as it matters who should take the blame for lack of prevention in a tragedy that resulted in the brutal death of 4 Americans.

The CIA, Hillary Clinton, and others have all been blamed because President Obama lacks the leadership and humility to apologize to America, grieve with the families who lost their loved ones, and find a solution to be sure American blood is not unnecessarily wasted again.

The office of the President of the United States is easy when you are campaigning with celebrities, chatting it up on late night talk shows, playing golf, or receiving the Nobel Prize. Unfortunately, the presidency is not a Miss America press tour. It consists of real-life, real-time decisions that require leadership, focus, and determination.

Not everyone has what it takes to be president. As we have seen with Benghazi, President Obama has not fulfilled his role as Commander in Chief. Simultaneously, he has failed to be solution-oriented, resulting in higher unemployment, gas prices, credit downgrades, six trillion dollars more in debt, and record number of Americans claiming disability. Success in a leadership position requires leadership skills, something President Obama has repeatedly promised but has proven unable to deliver.

CIA Director David Petraeus Addresses Dickinson College’s Class of 2012

When I graduated from Dickinson College last year, then commander of NATO International Security Assistance Force and U.S Forces-Afghanistan General David Petraeus was suppose to address my graduating class, but was unable to attend due to the nature of his position.  While I was disappointed at the time, I was delighted to hear that he was scheduled again to address Dickinson’s graduating class of 2012 whose commencement was last Sunday in good ole’ Carlisle, Pa.  CIA Director David Petraeus has a deep connection with his wife Holly ’77 and his daughter Anne ’04 themselves being former Red Devils.

On a beautiful day last Sunday, Mr. Petraeus began his address a comical anecdote detailing a young student who gave a report on Julius Caesar who said that he fought and won some great battles, gave a long speech, and was killed.  The story drew laughter from the crowd and Director Petraeus stated he would try to avoid the same fate as the late Roman dictator.  He gave his praise of the accomplishments of the other distinguished guests and President of Dickinson College, William Durden, for the invitation and the work he has done to enhance the institution’s academic achievement and defining the principles of a global education and a liberal arts education.  As a result, community service, active citizenship, and activism has flourished, which Petraeus noted, are critical cornerstones in American society.   As President Durden prepares to retire next year, the CIA Director wished him well  in his future endeavors.  Before diving into the main part of his address, Mr. Petraeus did something that rarely happens at commencement addresses, or at least the ones I’ve attended, he thanked the class of 2012’s parents for their commitment to higher education.

An aspect of American education that Mr. Petraeus feels is critical in the evolution of ideas to solve the complex problems facing our country.  He primarily focused on the field of public service and reiterated the notion that service doesn’t have to be concentrated on the military.  In his thirty-seven year military career, he stated that “progress can only be achieved by committed selfless individuals working across in a wide range of  disciplines through a comprehensive, often civil military approach.”   In fact, he stated that rarely are problems solved with a single approach and it usually takes a collective effort to resolve a specific issue.

Mr. Petraeus was very direct in stating that this form of work will be difficult and may lend itself to difficult situations, but that should not deter any Red Devil from surrendering on the task at hand.  He reiterated his almost impossible mission to bring stability and peace in Iraq during the 2007 Surge that was also, as he stated, a “surge of ideas on the conduct of counter insurgency operations.”  With well over 200 attacks a day during the height of the violence in the country, he said he would dwell on a story concerning General Grant and General Sherman after the first bloody day during the Battle Of Shiloh.  That evening General Sherman looked at his commanding officer and said “well Grant, we’ve had the devil’s own day haven’t we.” “Yep” Grant replied and as he took a soggy cigar out of his mouth said “lick ’em tomorrow though.”

He stated that those same principles of Grant,relentlessness, courage, and innovation, were channeled by himself and his troops to complete the mission successfully.  In all,when it comes to overcoming obstacles, our men and women in uniform have shown that sheer hard work is essential for success.  However, it is only as good as the effort you put into it.  Mr. Petraeus urged all the graduates to become experts their respective fields, to be voracious readers, and always “to thirst for more knowledge and more understanding.”  In all, he urged the graduates to channel the principles of their education and wished them well in their efforts and looked forward to their leadership in solving the problems facing America at home and abroad.

Did You Know?

You may feel as though you are well aware of the events that seem to shape the world today? Perhaps you feel as though they are beyond your power to change?  And then again, you might be inclined as many American’s are, to state you don’t care about politics.  In either case even the most diligent American would have a hard time keeping up with all the rhetoric on a daily basis that continues to plague the world we live in. It hard to keep up on the facts, and even harder to recognize what is fact and what is fiction on the Hill, when integrity seems to be a thing of the past.  The reality is, despite the attempts to dismiss the threat of radical Islam by the media and government officials, Islam is very much close to home and a real threat to our national security.  The majority of people are under the impression there is no cause for alarm; they fail to recognize the depth of the infiltration of Islam which is deeply rooted in our U.S. culture, society, and government.

Ironically, probably 99 percent of American’s probably don’t know most of what I am about to tell you. If they do know, and discuss it publicly, they are either criticized, dismissed, or marginalized.  To a certain extent we have become complacent and have allowed our government to spiral out of control while those we elect have their own self-serving agendas.  Career Politicians seem to feel as tho they are the voice for us, yet the words they choose behind close doors would probably make most of us cringe.

This year, and election year, you may want to take a closer look at who your voting for because not caring, lack of interest, or the other typical excuse “I’m not interested in politics” are all reasons that could contribute to the downfall of the United States as you believe it to be.   As an American you have a moral, ethical, and civic duty to care about the people you put into office, because they not only effect you, they have a significant impact on generations to come – not caring, lack of interest, or whatever the reason is what got us here in the first place.

Being Held for something we 'might' do?

Prolonged Detention.

Rachel Maddow addresses the President’s proposal to indefinitely detain persons who are threats to this country, because of something they “might” do.

I looked the video up because some say Al-Awlaki should not have been killed.
They are saying he should have gotten a trial.
 
Awlaki was placed on the CIA capture or kill list – he was involved in the underwear bomber’s activity among other detestable plans to recruit our own people and turn them against us with intent to bring our country to it’s knees, as well as murder her citizens.

I understand the fear of slippery slope, (declaring a person a threat and then “taking them out” without due process of law) but his were acts of war agains this nation.

Awlaki made himself a part of Al-Queda.

As for the slippery slope – the ability to detain a person since they are very likely to commit a crime against our nation – I regret to inform you, that the first few steps have already been tread upon it.  This video is two years old.

In it, President Obama proposes to construct a “legal regime” with congressional and judiciary oversights.
This means separate from our judicial system and military commissions.

His examples are in regards to those who are training in terrorist camps today.
Here is the information for anyone who wants it.

Navy Seals Made Call to Kill Osama – Not Obama

Leon PenettaIn a stunning change to the previously released account of events, Leon Penetta, Obama’s CIA chief now says that for most of the raid, the president wasn’t watching.

Mr Panetta said: “Once those teams went into the compound I can tell you that there was a time period of almost 20 or 25 minutes where we really didn’t know just exactly what was going on. And there were some very tense moments as we were waiting for information.

“We had some observation of the approach there, but we did not have direct flow of information as to the actual conduct of the operation itself as they were going through the compound.”

Mr Panetta also revealed that the US Navy Seals made the final decision to kill bin Laden rather than the president.[1]

What happened to “at my direction” from president Obama? Now it’s “the US Navy SEALs made the final decision to kill bin Laden rather than the president”?

For several days the images of the president and his staff intently watching the unfolding of the attack on bin Laden’s compound have been thrown around as truth. Now America is told that the Commander-in-chief wasn’t watching, or commanding, at all.

This has all the appearances of plausible deniability.  If the president didn’t know what was happening, he couldn’t possibly have made the wrong choice.

Osama is dead, or so the world has been told. Now, the man that ordered the operation is walking away from all responsibility and heaping it upon the men he sent in there to carry it out. They are SEALs, they can carry much more than the wimpy, worthless elitist that accidentally got elected president.

The high side of this is that if Osama bin Laden is dead, it was all the action, determination and decision-making of the U.S. Navy SEALs and nothing to do with Obama – nothing.

CIA Director Reveals Intent Was to Kill Bin Laden

Leon PenettaDuring the May 3rd interview of CIA director Leon Penetta by NBC Nightly News’ Brian Williams, Mr. Penetta all but admitted that killing Osama bin Laden was the intent of the mission.

The authorities we have on Bin Laden are to kill him. And that was made clear. But it was also, as part of their rules of engagement, if he suddenly put up his hands and offered to be captured, then– they would have the opportunity, obviously, to capture him. But that opportunity never developed.

The only way that Seal Team Six would have captured Osama is if he dropped to the ground, raised his hands and pleaded for mercy – not OBL’s style.

The interview also discusses the reveal of pictures of Osama’s corpse. As Dir. Penetta says, “The government obviously has been talking about how best to do this, but I don’t think there’s– there was any question that ultimately a photograph would be presented to the public. Obviously I’ve seen those photographs. We’ve analyzed them and there’s no question that it’s Bin Laden.”

Mr. Penetta also makes it clear that the Pakastani government knew nothing of the operation – until the rather impressive sound and fury of an exploding Blackhawk helicopter awoke them. “So I think the only time the Pakistanis found out about it, frankly, was after this mission had taken place. We had to blow the helicopter, as you know, and that probably woke up a lot of people, including the Pakistanis”, said Penetta.

Brian Williams even tries to elevate Obama’s actions above G.W. Bush by asking why we didn’t do this sooner, but Panetta is not sucked in and answers rather honestly.

And why, I’ve heard several people asking, could this same thing have been done at the start of the Iraq war to save the lives of all those souls we had to bury? To– to save all those young Americans from coming home with such grievous injuries in the commission of that war?

*Update 5/4 – President Obama will not allow the release of any photos showing the corpse of Osama bin Laden

Full Interview Transcript:

WILLIAMS:

There is a report as we have this conversation, for the record, 10:36 a.m., that the President, the White House, has decided and, it may already be out, to release a proof of death photo. What light can you shed on this?

PANETTA:

The government obviously has been talking about how best to do this, but I don’t think there’s– there was any question that ultimately a photograph would be presented to the public. Obviously I’ve seen those photographs. We’ve analyzed them and there’s no question that it’s Bin Laden.

WILLIAMS:

Were you debating how the release of a photo would go over, given its gruesomeness, versus the need on behalf of people all over the world to demand proof of death?

PANETTA:

I think there’s no question that there were concerns and there were questions that had to be debated about just exactly question kind of impact– would these photos have. But the bottom line is that, you know, we got Bin Laden and I think we have to reveal to the rest of the world the fact that we were able to get him and kill him.

WILLIAMS:

Is the world safer?

PANETTA:

Brian, I– I don’t think there’s any question that– you know, when you get the number one terrorist in the world that we’re a little safer today than we were when he was alive. But I also don’t think we ought to kid ourselves that killing Osama bin Laden kills al Qaeda. Al Qaeda still remains a threat. They’re still going try to attack our country. And I think we have to continue to be vigilant– and– and continue the effort to ultimately defeat these guys. We’ve damaged them, but we still have to defeat them.

WILLIAMS:

Asked another way perhaps, what does this change?

PANETTA:

I– I think what it– what it represents is that you know, President Bush, President Obama– were very intent on making clear that we were going go after Osama bin Laden. I think soon after I became director of the CIA– President Obama pulled me into the Oval Office and said”: “Look, I just want you to know that your top priority is to go after Osama bin Laden.” I think the fact that we were able to do that– that we were successful in this effort, has sent an important signal to the world that the United States, when it develops a focus on what’s important, what we have to do, we get the job done.

WILLIAMS:

When did the President’s order in this mission become real and go up and become a possibility?

PANETTA:

Well, as you know as we’ve been- debating this issue for a long time. And we had a number of sessions at the White House going over all of the intelligence and all of the approaches as to how we would conduct these operations. But it wasn’t until Thursday morning that the national security advisor called me and said that the President had made a decision to proceed with this operation. And then later that day I received orders signed by the President of the United States to proceed to conduct this operation under Title 50, which means it was a covert operation. And we would be responsible from the President for seeing that this mission was accomplished.

WILLIAMS:

What did the Pakistanis know and when did they know it?

PANETTA:

The Pakistanis did not know anything about this mission. And that was that was deliberate on our part that this would be conducted as a unilateral mission. President Obama had made very clear to the Pakistanis that if we– if we had good evidence as to where Osama bin Laden was located we were going to go in and get him. And– that’s exactly what happened.

So I think the only time the Pakistanis found out about it, frankly, was after this mission had taken place. We had to blow the helicopter, as you know, and that probably woke up a lot of people, including the Pakistanis.

WILLIAMS:

Well, and I ask that because I’m curious as to why, given all the hardware, the garrison, the personnel, it– retired military officers in that immediate area, why weren’t the United States forces fired upon?

PANETTA:

Well, that was obviously a concern that was raised at the time we were considering this operation which was going into this kind of sensitive area with helicopters and SEALs and landing on this compound– would the Pakistanis suddenly respond and you know, try to pin down our forces.

Frankly, we, you know, we considered all of those contingencies. That’s why we had the backup helicopters in place. But the reality was that I think in– in– in going in, I think the military commander felt confident that we would be able to get in and get out, hopefully within 30 to 35 minutes. The fact was that we completed this operation within 40 minutes and we had everybody on their way out of that country. And even at that point, the Pakistanis were not aware of just exactly what had happened.

WILLIAMS:

Did the President’s order read capture or kill or both or just one of those?

PANETTA:

The authorities we have on Bin Laden are to kill him. And that was made clear. But it was also, as part of their rules of engagement, if he suddenly put up his hands and offered to be captured, then– they would have the opportunity, obviously, to capture him. But that opportunity never developed.

WILLIAMS:

And why, I’ve heard several people asking, could this same thing have been done at the start of the Iraq war to save the lives of all those souls we had to bury? To– to save all those young Americans from coming home with such grievous injuries in the commission of that war?

PANETTA:

You know, I believe that Osama bin Laden, obviously, was the– the number one terrorist that we were after and-what he did in attacking this country made him clearly the number one target for us. But the fact was that this has been a long and difficult road. And I don’t believe there was really another opportunity that had been provided to be able to– to pin him down and be able to conduct the kind of operation that we did. I– you know, the bottom line reason that I think the President made the decision to go was that this was the best evidence we had of Bin Laden and where he might be located going back to Tora Bora. And because it was the best evidence we had, even though it was circumstantial, it demanded that we take action.

WILLIAMS:

You see why I’m– I’m asking the– you know, the Iraq war was very personal, very personally about one man. And while reasonable people will debate whether or not it was an elective war of the choices after 9/11, it became about him and this so called single bullet directive by the President, aimed to take out one man that– that of course– in the course of it saved so many Americans. I’m just asking if that could not have been– a route we could have pursued in that war?

PANETTA:

Well, you know, I– I guess there’ll be a lot of second guessing as to what could or could not have been the case, but I think the reality was that even though I’m sure a lot of people wanted to get Bin Laden from the very beginning, we just did not have the same opportunity to do it as we had within these last few days.

WILLIAMS:

I’d like to ask you about the sourcing on the intel that ultimately led to this successful attack. Can you confirm that it was– as a result of water boarding that we learned what we needed to learn to go after Bin Laden?

PANETTA:

You know, Brian, in the intelligence business you work from a lot of sources of information and that was true here. We had a multiple source– a multiple series of– sources that provided information with regards to the situation. Clearly some of it came from detainees and the interrogation of detainees but we also had information from other sources as well. From Sigent intelligence, from imagery, from other sources that we had– assets on the ground. And it was a combination of all of that that ultimately we were able to put together that led us to that compound. So– it’s– it’s a little difficult to say it was due just to one source of information that we got.

WILLIAMS:

Turned around the other way, are you denying that water boarding was, in part, among the tactics used to extract the intelligence that led to this successful mission?

PANETTA:

No, I think some of the detainees clearly were, you know, they used these enhanced interrogation techniques against some of these detainees. But I’m also saying that, you know, the debate about whether– whether we would have gotten the same information through other approaches I think is always going to be an open question.

WILLIAMS:

So finer point, one final time, enhanced interrogation techniques, which has always been kind of a handy euphemism in these post-9/11 years.

PANETTA:

Right.

WILLIAMS:

includes water boarding?

PANETTA:

That’s correct.

WILLIAMS:

How often did the desert raid circa Carter administration, how often did Black Hawk Down in Somalia rattle around your heads, rattle around the room as you sat during the planning stages?

PANETTA:

Well, that was clearly part of the debate. You know, this– this was a risky mission. There were a lot of risks and a lot of uncertainties. We had, you know, the bottom line was this. That we had the best intelligence– on the location of Bin Laden– since Tora Bora. That that– that presented an obligation to act. And the President obviously felt that we had that obligation to act.

What course we would take, whether we would use an assault– the way we did or whether we would try other methods was also debated. And when we came down to considering the assault, the risks of having helicopters go down, the risks of suddenly being in battle with the Pakistanis or having a serious incident there, all of that was discussed.

And we all knew that that was– that was part of– the risks involved here. But the President, to his credit, made the decision that we had to go. And I think we had great confidence in the capability of these SEAL teams who conduct these operations two and three times a night in Afghanistan. We had tremendous confidence that they could get the job done.

WILLIAMS:

Related subject regarding at least, a world figure. Director Panetta, do you have any proof since Saturday night that Muammar Khaddafy is alive?

PANETTA:

Do I have any proof that he is alive?

WILLIAMS:

Yes.

PANETTA:

Is that what you’re asking, Brian?

WILLIAMS:

Yes.

PANETTA:

I– at least– best intelligence we have is that he’s still alive.

WILLIAMS:

So there’s been– there’s been a sighting, a communication by him? You have positive proof of life?

PANETTA:

It– best intelligence we have on Khaddafy is that– he is– he is still alive.

WILLIAMS:

And finally, a question on Pakistan. How do you relate to them now? How do you go to them and say, “I understand that in the most important– military operation that’ll probably be conducted in your soil in modern times we didn’t inform you in advance. We regard you as a trusted ally though you have broken our trust in the past.” How do you go forward from here?

PANETTA:

We– we have to go forward with the– the Pakistanis. The reality is that we continue to confront our enemy in their country. We conduct operations against that enemy and their country. They have provided cooperation with regards to that effort to go after those terrorists. At the same time, obviously– there– there are questions. And there are complications that we have to work through with the Pakistanis.

And the bottom line here is that they were clearly told that if we had Bin Laden, if we knew where he was, we were going to go in and get him. And actually, when– when– when we revealed to them that this operation had taken place, interestingly enough, the first comment from them was congratulations. So they knew very well what we intended to do.

And, hopefully, we can continue to work with them, because the reality is that in that part of the world we have to have Pakistan’s cooperation in dealing not just with the issue of terrorism in their country, but dealing with the issue of how we find peace in Afghanistan.

WILLIAMS:

And I lied about the last question. One more was just handed to me. A statement from overseas reads simply, “Pakistan has family members of Osama bin Laden in custody.” Is that true?

PANETTA:

That’s correct. The family members who were at the compound and were left there by our– our– our forces– our understanding is that the Pakistanis now have– have them in– in their detention. And frankly, we have asked access to those individuals so we can continue to gather intelligence. And the word we go back from the Pakistanis is that we would have that access.

WILLIAMS:

What do you think they have for you? What’s the value to the U.S., potentially?

PANETTA:

You know, Brian, we have– we’ve gotten an awful lot of– of– potential intelligence out of this operation, beyond just going after the number one terrorist. The reality is that we picked up an awful lot of information there at the compound. If you combine that with the ability to continue questioning the family, this could– this could give us a lot of valuable information regarding threats, regarding the location of other high value targets and regarding the kind of operations that we need to conduct against these terrorists. So this was– this was an important effort, not only because we got the number one terrorist, but because of the intelligence information that we got from this operation.

Bin Laden’s Death: A Lesson in Media Malpractice

Radical Muslim terrorist and 911 mastermind Osama Bin Laden has reportedly been killed in Pakistan recently.  Depending on where you went to look for information on this story, you could have  seen many different accounts on what has supposedly  transpired in this much-anticipated event.  There is a good account of these discrepancies here , written by our very own PolarCoug,  including 5 updates.  As has been the constant pattern of media manipulation and misinformation coming from the Obama administration, this episode brought about record levels of incompetence and buffoonery from the very beginning. Bin Laden was first reported to have been killed in a bomb planted by a U.S. ground operation, then it was reported that a drone strike killed him, and finally we were told that he was shot in the head by a U.S. Navy Seal team six special forces operator. Throw in the fact that Obama was late to his own news conference, leading to some news agencies breaking the story early and incorrectly, and we now have the makings for another episode of the ” Who really killed JFK ” conspiracy theory type big Hollywood melodramas.

So, let’s take a look at some of the possible reasons for the sure to come rampant speculation about what really happened here. First of all, there is no longer a body to offer as proof Bin Laden is dead, due to his body reportedly being dumped at sea in observance of the Muslim tradition of a burial within 24 hours of death.  Surely they had the time to collect hair samples and take blood for DNA testing to ensure this murdering Muslim is no longer a threat to the United States, yet we are not hearing anything more than the use of face-recognition software being the basis for the proof ofBin Laden’s death. Color me curious here, but that simply isn’t good enough to prove to me that Bin Laden is actually dead, period. DNA would go a long way towards actually giving Americans some closure here, acknowledging the fact that we had the body, yet disposed of it due to supposed religious reasons.

Secondly, there is the problem of the CIA and the U.S Military being involved with an assassination on foreign soil to be dealt with. Bin Laden was reportedly killed in Pakistan, and now we are hearing that Pakistan has now ramped up their demands for the stoppage of the use of predator drones in their country, a very effective tool in the fight against radical Muslim terrorists, including the Taliban and Al-Qaeda in the region. The CIA reportedly tracked Bin Laden to the luxurious mansion hideout, where Seal Team Six eventually killed him. Will this lead Eric Holder, the Department of In-Justice hypocrite, to indite his pal Obama on war crimes charges for being the Commander in Chief of the U.S. military that carried out an assassination on foreign soil ? That is simply not going to happen in our lifetime.  This also leads us to question just how committed the Pakistani government truly is helping rid the world of Muslim terrorists, while accepting billions of dollars from the United States to allow them to operate in the region.  It is just not believable that Osama Bin Laden was living in a luxury mansion in Pakistan without the Pakastani government knowing it.  That would be akin to Al Capone moving into a luxury Condo in Washington D.C. without the FBI knowing he was there.  We can also look forward to the next hushed up information about another multi-billion dollar payment of our tax dollars going to the Pakistani government very soon, as our own government needs their cooperation in spinning this story in a way that makes in believable to the American public.

In conclusion, this gigantic episode in the death of America’s most hated enemy is far from over, due to misinformation and the stench of a massive cover-up. With something this important to the thousands of  family members who lost loved ones, and the American public in general, one would think that our very own President, Barack Hussein Obama, could make an honest, truthful announcement about what really transpired here.  That just didn’t happen, when we look at all the conflicting information here. Stay tuned, as I,m sure the media propagandists will get their Obama- mandated stories straight eventually.

Is the Next Libyan Dictator Mahmoud Jibril?

Pictured at left is interim Prime Minister of Libya, Mahmoud Jibril (courtesy of Vincent Kessler/ Reuters.)  He was originally educated in Egypt and then later received his PhD  from The University of Pittsburgh. He is also a former member of Khadafy’s  regime who was working with his son Saif on economic reforms in Libya. While in college Jibril studied under a former U.S. intelligence official in Iran, one Richard Cottam, who later on became a political scientist who’s specialty was the Middle East.  That is a very interesting combination of skills we see there, politics, intelligence, and science. At this point one has to wonder if the intelligence agency employing Mr. Cottam wasn’t the infamous CIA.

When looking at the volatile situations across the Middle East and North Africa today, we hear very little about CIA involvement, but make no mistake, these types of situations have always involved the CIA, in one way or another. Therefore, I find it very interesting how a former Khadafy regime member who was schooled by a U.S, intelligence operative and political-science master has become the  *Interim Prime Minister of Libya* today with obvious American Leftist support.  At least we now know who our Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton was talking to, when she stated she was in serious talks with the Libyan rebels who had yet to be identified by the rest of the world.  While this guy appears to come out of nowhere, his background proves that he has deep ties to certain American factions, most notably our most left-leaning politicians. Take note to date, that Mr. Jibril has yet to meet with the third most powerful representative of the American people,  the Speaker of the House, Republican John Boehner.  Thus the numerous serious questions about our true agenda in engaging in the Libyan civil war illegally.  To get  Congressional approval for the Libyan war action, it would have to go through the Republican controlled House of Representatives, so President Obama just bypassed that Constitutional mandate completely.  So much for real democracy in America today.

Another interesting fact is that while studying in the United States, Mr. Jibril, who in fact went by the name Mahmoud Gebril ElWarfally when he lived in the United States, is in many ways an unlikely leader of rebellion. Also of note is that Mr. Jibril has problems spelling his own name properly or consistently, as in his own company in which he is the President, ” Gebril for Training and Consultancy.” Americans do not trust people who change their identities  in an attempt to hide their past actions, just look at Barry Seotoro, AKA  Barack Hussein Obama, for a good example of that.  Add in the fact that he has been mentored by a U. S.  intelligence operative, and had initially only been talked to by leftist Democrats John Kerry and Hillary Clinton when this whole charade started, and we see a distinct pattern emerging in the Libyan Civil War scenario.

Mr. Jibril , aka Mr. ElWarfally, has some interesting plans for Libya, which include nationalizing the oil industry, drafting a new Libyan constitution, and starting a new Central Bank, similar to what Mr. Hugo Chavez has done in Venezuela. Mr. Jibril also has visions of  installing a new television station in rebel-held territory,  while calling for the dismantling of Khadafy’s own television stations.  To deny anyone, even a ruthless dictator, the right to defend himself in the free speech arena is a very troubling sign indeed. Those plans are more  in line with installing a Socialistic Dictatorship than a true Democracy.

We also see what happens when the United States enters into a Civil war that is none of our business and becomes responsible for meeting the demands of the ragtag rebels seeking to overthrow Khadafy. To keep the rebellion afloat, opposition members are seeking aid including heavy artillery, cash, and the jamming of Khadafy’s television channels. Gene Cretz, the US ambassador to Libya, said his team is still deliberating what kind of support to offer the rebels as it tries to figure out exactly who all the people on the interim council are.

Will Libya end up being a true Democracy when this all plays out, or will it still be in the hands of just another Dictator similar to Khadafy?
