Democrat Spook to Obama: WAKE UP

christian-muslim-symbolsChristians underwent their Reformation. It’s time Muslims do too. It’s time. Way past time. That’s what this Democrat intelligence official is saying here, in essence. It’s so obvious to me I’m sort of stunned more people don’t talk about it in those terms. Perhaps they’re afraid framing it in that way would lend oxygen to the Left’s whole “Crusade” accusation of the “radical Right.” Whatever. I’m tired of worrying about what the Left will say. [Bleep] ’em. Say what you mean and mean what you say. Say it plainly. We’re not a stupid people (mostly;). Our deep sense of fairness will more than make up for whatever stupid bubbles up. We’re good at fair, we Americans. We have a remarkably good sense of it. So let’s trust the people, hm?

You can read my excerpts below or the whole thing here.


I’m a Former CIA Officer and a Democrat. Here’s What Obama Still Doesn’t Get About Terrorism

.
…Islam is a faith in crisis.
.
President-elect Donald Trump’s chosen national security advisor, Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, has tried explaining this — albeit in impolite terms — by saying that “Islam is a political ideology based on a religion.”
.
Flynn’s poorly worded warning stems from experience, and he knows what happens when religious leaders take over governments. Women face widespread discrimination. Gay people are imprisoned or killed. Dancing, music and other forms of art are banned. And those who criticize Islam or convert to Christianity face prison or death.
 .
However, what causes the most alarm to national security experts is the Wahhabi objective of global conquest. Islamic State and Al Qaeda are terrorist groups built on Wahhabi ideology. They want to govern the world under sharia law, and they are more than willing to achieve their goals through force. Islamic State is known for beheading its victims or burning them alive. And as we saw in Columbus, they’re inspiring legions of supporters. …

The United States has also suffered the consequences of Islamist extremism and those inspired by the radical ideology. We remember San BernardinoBostonFt. HoodLittle RockGarlandChattanoogaFt. DixOrlando. Shanksville. New York. Washington.

Muslims have every right to sit at the American table if they support the Constitution. We should all proudly acknowledge brave women and men like my former CIA colleague who led our nation’s war on terrorism for more than 15 years; he’s Shiite Muslim. This officer — whom I can’t name because he’s still officially under cover— was ruthless in his hunt for radical killers, and he deserves a medal for his years of sacrifice.

Are we at war with the whole of Islam, or should we be? Of course not. But Islam is a faith in crisis, and to deny that certain strains of the religion are contributing to global instability is to deny reality.

After eight years as president, Obama still doesn’t understand that.

Benghazi Truth Bomb?

Did the CIA kill Ambassador Stevens?  With Obama & Hillary’s knowledge and consent?

A caller, “Burt,” to Michael Savage’s radio show who claims to have had 20 years of top clearance, thinks so.  Now, there are several problems with this caller, not the least of which is he states he was a “neighbor” of Oversight Chairman Jason Chaffetz, and didn’t disguise his voice at all, so, if he was hoping to remain anonymous, that’s blown.  And someone with top clearance who believes the CIA killed one of our Ambassadors doesn’t seem to have through the fact that he could be next… So I have significant trouble jumping over that obstacle to his credibility, but, these (intel) guys have endured 7 years of being thrown under the bus by this administration, and if he does have such clearance, it’s also possible he’s been trained to protect himself.  Who knows?  He’s calling from Utah, but that doesn’t mean he’s still a neighbor of Chaffetz’s, and he might be living in some shack somewhere out there under an assumed name.  I don’t know, but what he has to say is interesting if only for the theory he puts forth…

You can listen HERE.

Below I grabbed a very small section of the transcript as provided by YouTube. It’s heavily edited & corrected for clarity. It is by no means complete, and I make no claim that it is 100% accurate, but I did my best. I just did a quick cut & edit job for my visitors who, like me, hate listening to videos and would much rather scan a transcript! Again: It’s just a slice, and it’s edited for clarity, but nothing I did changed the meaning of what was said.

MICHAEL SAVAGE: “…You have twenty years national top secret security clearance I have no reason to doubt you… So start from the beginning of a full five minutes right now if you need it.”

“BURT”: “…My life’s work (is) to put Barack Obama, Eric Holder, John Kerry, (and) Hillary Clinton in prison and if I end up missing I want this information out… Assad is one of the few regimes over there was duly elected (but) he wouldn’t play ball with us so as we do we play both sides against each other… The CIA trained both the rebels and a false force… McCain accidentally leaked that today even though it been leaked before…”

MICHAEL SAVAGE: “…You’re now alleging on this national show that the CIA set up a fake group… and they set up a fake Syrian Army… that gassed their own people?”

“BURT”: “…Remember a few months ago when the media reported that Assad was gassing the the rebels? …(An) independent study on the gas that was used (showed it was) not the same kind of gas that Assad was shown to have his arsenal. It was gas that was being transported through Libya through Turkey… So we’re framing him just like we framed all the rest when we took out Noriega in Panama the whole history and the other dictators and things that the U.S. put into place and when they start stepping out line and we had to go in and remove them… So the point one point I want to make is when Chris Stevens found out about these weapons of mass destruction … being smuggled in there and the CIA’s involvement he threatened to expose (it)…”

MICHAEL SAVAGE: “…(So) you’re saying they unleashed a mob on him because he was gonna expose the United States double-dealing in all of this…”

“BURT”: “…The CIA outpost was a few blocks away. They blocked any (help) coming to the consulate (for) Chris Stevens and his aide (who) were locked in a quote-unquote safe room… and then the two Seals that we’re trying to defend the CIA outpost were killed. They were killed because the CIA was not supposed to be taking action. They were supposed to be standing down and let Chris Stevens be taken out.”

…And for the record:  I find Michael Savage utterly unlistenable for a whole litany of reasons I won’t list here, but one of my tweeps tweeted out the heads-up and I’m glad he did!

Linked? -> Cooked ISIS Intel + Petraeus + Mistresses = TAMPA

Did pillow-talk in TAMPA lead to BOTH the cooked ISIS intel AND the Petraeus scandal? And are they linked?

A lot of people thought it was shocking and curious that the Petraeus thing happened; that such a widely respected man with such a distinguished resume would be so careless with intel, even if it was just paper & printed and sitting in a locked home cabinet, as opposed to digital, sitting on a server in a bathroom closet, thus available to even the lowest level hacker in Russia or China, like some people we know.

It was also shocking that he was so publicly humiliated for it. Nobody responsible thought he should escape unpunished, to be sure, but there were plenty who thought the Obama Administration’s treatment of him was tinged with a certain amount of sadistic glee. Yeah, he had a mistress, which is what everyone remembers most about his downfall, but it’s hardly the first time a guy let his ____ do his thinking for him. That was the least of it.

Now fast-forward from November 2012, when Petraeus resigned in disgrace, to the recent cooked intel scandal. Not a month ago, we find out one of the whistleblowers raising alarm to the intel community’s Inspector General came from CENTCOM.  Where’s CENTCOM?  Tampa.  Now, hold on to that little piece of information and consider this:  Yesterday, Petraeus, “in his first public testimony before lawmakers since resigning as CIA director,” chooses that venue to publicly apologize “for sharing classified information with his biographer-mistress“… on the same day subpoenas start flying all over the place related to continuing litigation arising from his mistress/intel mess, from… a rich Tampa socialite (Jill Kelley).  Really? Can this really be a coincidence?

So, let’s pause for a second and see if we can knit this all together:  Turns out Tampa is CENTCOM’s (United States Central Command’s) domestic HQ (They have another facility overseas). Petraeus was CENTCOM’s chief from October 2008 through June 2010. You may remember that after the 2008 election, then-President-elect Obama made a big deal out of making sure everybody knew he was keeping a Bush hold-over and isn’t Obama a big-man-bipartisan-gawd for doing that. Obama later moved Petraeus to Afghanistan for a year and then finally to CIA, where he got busted with the mistress and the intel and from which he ultimately resigned in November 2012, right after Obama’s re-election to a second term… And I mean… right after. Within days.

As it happens, CENTCOM isn’t our only facility in Tampa. It’s home to MacDill Air Force Base and, from what I’ve read, a hot-bed of very high-ranking military brass mixing socially with Tampa’s very rich, very often, in very swish parties at their very swish mansions. There is a very vibrant social scene in Tampa, evidently, with lots of brass & botox rubbing up against each other with much regularity.  Married brass.  And married botox. Married… not necessarily to each other…

…Enter the flying subpoenas… With implications of more mistresses, (WH?) leaked emails, and a WH “press plan” to manage it all…

What’s going on here?  This whole thing stinks.  I always thought Petraeus was pushed out for reasons unknown, but I can speculate.  I think this good man (flawed like the rest of us) might have been preparing to say something unflattering about the Obama Administration.  And this Jill Kelley chick?  Who else but the White House had motivation to leak those emails?  I haven’t really, truly stewed over this whole thing, but my radar is up.  I invite you to just scan the excerpted stories below (Exhibits A/B) with what I’ve posited in mind and leave your comments.  I haven’t got a solid idea what this all means, but I know it’s meaningful…


EXHIBIT A:

NYT: Inquiry Weighs Whether ISIS Analysis Was Distorted

The Pentagon’s inspector general is investigating allegations that military officials have skewed intelligence assessments about the United States-led campaign in Iraq against the Islamic State to provide a more optimistic account of progress, according to several officials familiar with the inquiry.

The investigation began after at least one civilian Defense Intelligence Agency analyst told the authorities that he had evidence that officials at United States Central Command — the military headquarters overseeing the American bombing campaign and other efforts against the Islamic State — were improperly reworking the conclusions of intelligence assessments prepared for policy makers, including President Obama, the government officials said.

Fuller details of the claims were not available, including when the assessments were said to have been altered and who at Central Command, or Centcom, the analyst said was responsible. The officials, speaking only on the condition of anonymity about classified matters, said that the recently opened investigation focused on whether military officials had changed the conclusions of draft intelligence assessments during a review process and then passed them on…

It is not clear how that review process changes when Defense Intelligence Agency analysts are assigned to work at Centcom — which has headquarters both in Tampa, Fla., and Qatar…

 


EXHIBIT B:

September 22, 2015
AP: Journalists Subpoenaed in Lawsuit Over Petraeus Scandal

Nine journalists were issued subpoenas Tuesday as part of a lawsuit over the Obama administration investigation that led to the resignation of CIA Director David Petraeus.

Those subpoenaed to provide depositions and documents include current and former reporters and editors at The Associated Press, The Washington Post, the Daily Beast and Fox News.

Jill and Scott Kelley of Tampa, Florida, sued the federal government in 2013, alleging that officials violated the U.S. Privacy Act by disclosing information about the couple. Jill Kelley was implicated in 2012 scandals involving Petraeus and Marine Gen. John R. Allen.

The AP was the first to report the name of Kelley, a (Tampa) socialite who hosted parties attended by high-ranking military brass.

Pentagon officials acknowledged in earlier depositions that they developed a “press plan” with members of an unspecified delegation from the White House in November 2012 to tell reporters that emails between Allen and Jill Kelley were “potentially inappropriate” and to suggest that the two had a sexual relationship.

Jill Kelley denied having an affair, and Allen was later exonerated by the Pentagon’s inspector general…

In 2012, Jill Kelley contacted a social acquaintance at the FBI to complain that an unknown person had sent her harassing emails. Her complaint triggered a criminal investigation that led agents to Paula Broadwell, Petraeus’ biographer. Broadwell had been having an affair with the former Army general, who was then director of the spy agency.

The FBI concluded that Broadwell had forwarded to her personal email account at least 1,500 messages about intelligence and military matters from Petraeus’ official CIA email account. Petraeus resigned Nov. 9, 2012, and later pleaded guilty to one misdemeanor charge of mishandling classified information.

Jill Kelley’s name and some harassing emails were disclosed on Nov. 11, 2012, to reporters amid the sensational disclosures about Petraeus. Two days later, she was linked to Allen, then-commander of U.S. forces in Afghanistan.


Like I said, if you can offer some clarity on this thread of a thought of mine, I’d love to see in comments (Be nice!). *Be sure you are clicked into this specific post and not just my blog-site generally, and to scroll all the way down to see the comments box.

Chick Thoughts

1. As regards Hillary’s (Benghazi, Libya, dead Ambassador +3) testimony on The Hill yesterday:  The sum total of her testimony was “I didn’t get the memo” which resulted in all progressives & all MSM hailing this as a slap-down of those meanie GOP who questioned her. There were only 2 or 3 GOP who did an even half-way decent job of it, out of some 5 1/2 hours, which was distressing enough, but to hear the liberal media tell it, obfuscating and criminal negligence are praise-worthy talents. (And flat-out lying. She flat-out lied at least three times I counted.  Just flat-out LIED.) I can only imagine if the exact same series of events took place under George W. Bush and Condoleeza Rice. I’m guessing “I didn’t get the memo” wouldn’t fly…

.

2. As regards women in foxholes:  I used to sleep easy at night that none of my children would be drafted, as I have no sons… So much for that.  Panetta, on his way out, overturned that policy so now women can fight on the front lines.  I’ve always thought that if a woman CHOSE to, and her COMMANDER thought it was a good idea, she should be allowed to do it; but as a one-size-fits-all policy, NO.  Men and women ARE different and no matter how much you may want to make that not so, IT’S NOT SO.  That’s not to say they are not EQUAL:  Just DIFFERENT.  Again, if, in certain circumstances, you have a squad member who is uniquely suited to that work whose Commander (likely knowing what his troops think) thinks its workable, FINE.  But this cookie-cutter-we’re-all-equal-progressive-social-engineering-in-foxholes ain’t the way.
