The New York Times Destroys Obama

nytoThe New York Times just delivered a mortal blow to the Obama administration and its Middle East policy.

Call it fratricide. It was clearly unintentional. Indeed, is far from clear that the paper even realizes what it has done.

Last Saturday the Times published an 8,000 word account by David Kirkpatrick detailing the terrorist strike against the US consulate and the CIA annex in Benghazi, Libya on September 11, 2012. In it, Kirkpatrick tore to shreds the foundations of President Barack Obama’s counter-terrorism strategy and his overall policy in the Middle East.

Obama first enunciated those foundations in his June 4, 2009 speech to the Muslim world at Cairo University. Ever since, they have been the rationale behind US counter-terror strategy and US Middle East policy.

Obama’s first assertion is that radical Islam is not inherently hostile to the US. As a consequence, America can appease radical Islamists. Moreover, once radical Muslims are appeased, they will become US allies, (replacing the allies the US abandons to appease the radical Muslims).

Obama’s second strategic guidepost is his claim that the only Islamic group that is a bona fide terrorist organization is the faction of al Qaida directly subordinate to Osama bin Laden’s successor Ayman al-Zawahiri. Only this group cannot be appeased and must be destroyed through force.

The administration has dubbed the Zawahiri faction of al Qaida “core al Qaida.” And anyone who operates in the name of al Qaida, or any other group, that does not have courtroom certified operational links to Zawahiri, is not really al Qaida, and therefore, not really a terrorist group or a US enemy.

These foundations have led the US to negotiate with the Taliban in Afghanistan. They are the rationale for the US’s embrace of the Muslim Brotherhood worldwide. They are the basis for Obama’s allegiance to Turkey’s Islamist government, and his early support for the Muslim Brotherhood dominated Syrian opposition.

They are the basis for the administration’s kneejerk support for the PLO against Israel.

Obama’s insistent bid to appease Iran, and so enable the mullocracy to complete its nuclear weapons program is similarly a product of his strategic assumptions. So too, the US’s current diplomatic engagement of Hezbollah in Lebanon owes to the administration’s conviction that any terror group not directly connected to Zawahiri is a potential US ally.

From the outset of the 2011 revolt against the regime of Muammar Qaddafi in Libya, it was clear that a significant part of the opposition was comprised of jihadists aligned if not affiliated with al Qaida. Benghazi was specifically identified by documents seized by US forces in Iraq as a hotbed of al Qaida recruitment.

Obama and his advisors dismissed and ignored the evidence. The core of al Qaida, they claimed was not involved in the anti-Qaddafi revolt. And to the extent jihadists were fighting Qaddafi, they were doing so as allies of the US.

In other words, the two core foundations of Obama’s understanding of terrorism and of the Muslim world were central to US support for the overthrow of Muammar Qaddafi.

With Kirkpatrick’s report, the Times exposed the utter falsity of both.

Kirkpatrick showed the mindset of the US-supported rebels and through it, the ridiculousness of the administration’s belief that you can’t be a terrorist if you aren’t directly subordinate to Zawahiri.

One US-supported Islamist militia commander recalled to him that at the outset of the anti-Qaddafi rebellion, “Teenagers came running around…[asking] ‘Sheikh, sheikh, did you know al Qaida? Did you know Osama bin Laden? How do we fight?”

In the days and weeks following the September 11, 2012 attack on the US installations in Benghazi in which US Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens and four other Americans were killed, the administration claimed that the attacks were not carried out by terrorists. Rather they were the unfortunate consequence of a spontaneous protest of otherwise innocent Libyans.

According to the administration’s version of events, these guileless, otherwise friendly demonstrators, who killed the US ambassador and four other Americans, were simply angered by a YouTube video of a movie trailer which jihadist clerics in Egypt had proclaimed was blasphemous.

In an attempt to appease the mob after the fact, Obama and then secretary of state Hillary Clinton were filmed in commercials run on Pakistani television apologizing for the video and siding with the mob against the movie maker, who to date is the only person the US has imprisoned following the attack. Then ambassador to the UN and current National Security Advisor Susan Rice gave multiple television interviews placing the blame for the attacks on the video.

According to Kirkpatrick’s account of the assault against the US installations in Benghazi on September 11, 2012, the administration’s description of the assaults was a fabrication. Far from spontaneous political protests spurred by rage at a YouTube video, the attack was premeditated. US officials spotted Libyans conducting surveillance of the consulate nearly 15 hours before the attack began.

Libyan militia warned US officials “of rising threats against Americans from extremists in Benghazi,” two days before the attack.

From his account, the initial attack — in which the consulate was first stormed — was carried out not by a mob, but by a few dozen fighters. They were armed with assault rifles. They acted in a coordinated, professional manner with apparent awareness of US security procedures.

During the initial assault, the attackers shot down the lights around the compound, stormed the gates, and then swarmed around the security personnel that ran to get their weapons, making it impossible for them to defend the ambassador and other personnel trapped inside.

According to Kirkpatrick, after the initial attack, the organizers spurred popular rage and incited a mob assault on the consulate by spreading the rumor that the Americans had killed a local. Others members of the secondary mob, Kirkpatrick claimed were motivated by reports of the video.

This mob assault, which followed the initial attack and apparent takeover of the consulate, was part of the predetermined plan. The organizers wanted to produce chaos. As Kirkpatrick explained, “The attackers had posted sentries at Venezia Road, adjacent to the [consulate] compound, to guard their rear flank, but they let pass anyone trying to join the mayhem.”

According to Kirkpatrick, the attack was perpetrated by local terrorist groups that were part of the US-backed anti-Qaddafi coalition. The people who were conducting the surveillance of the consulate 15 hours before the attack were uniformed security forces who escaped in an official car. Members of the militia tasked with defending the compound participated in the attack.

Ambassador Stevens himself, who had served as the administration’s emissary to the rebels during the insurrection against Qaddafi knew personally many of the terrorists who orchestrated the attack. And until the very end, he was himself taken in by the administration’s core belief that it was possible to appease al Qaida-sympathizing Islamic jihadists who were not directly affiliated with Zawahiri.

As Kirkpatrick noted, Stevens “helped shape the Obama administration’s conviction that it could world with the rebels, even those previously hostile to the West, to build a friendly, democratic government.”

The entire US view that local militias, regardless of their anti-American, jihadist ideologies could become US allies was predicated not merely on the belief that they could be appeased, but that they weren’t terrorists because they weren’t al Qaida proper.

As Kirkpatrick notes, “American intelligence efforts in Libya concentrated on the agendas of the biggest militia leaders and the handful of Libyans with suspected ties to al Qaida. The fixation on al Qaida might have distracted experts from more imminent threats.”

But again, the only reason that the intelligence failed to notice the threats emanating from local US-supported terrorists is because the US counter-terrorist strategy, like its overall Middle East strategy is to seek to appease all US enemies other than the parts of al Qaida directly commanded by Ayman al-Zawahiri.

Distressingly, most of the discussion spurred by Kirkpatrick’s article has ignored the devastating blow he visited on the intellectual foundations of Obama’s foreign policy. Instead, the discussion has focused on his claim that there is “no evidence that al Qaida or other international terrorist group had any role in the assault,” and on his assertion that the YouTube video did spur to action some of the participants in the assault.

Kirkpatrick’s claim that al Qaida played no role in the attack was refuted by the Times’ own reporting six weeks after the attack. It has also been refuted by Congressional and State Department investigations, by the UN and by a raft of other reporting.

His claim that the YouTube video did spur some of the attackers to action was categorically rejected last spring in sworn Congressional testimony by then deputy chief of the US mission to Libya Gregory Hicks.

Last May Hicks stated, “The YouTube video was a non-event in Libya. The video was not instigative of anything that was going on in Libya. We saw no demonstrators related to the video anywhere in Libya.”

The reason the Kirkpatrick’s larger message – that the reasoning behind Obama’s entire counter-terrorist strategy and his overall Middle East policy is totally wrong, and deeply destructive – has been missed is because his article was written and published to whitewash the administration’s deliberate mischaracterization of the events in Benghazi, not to discredit the rationale behind its Middle East policy and counter-terrorism strategy. This is why he claimed that al Qaida wasn’t involved in the attack. And this is why he claimed that the YouTube video was a cause for the attack.

This much was made clear in a blog post by editorial page editor Andrew Rosenthal who alleged that the entire discourse on Benghazi is promoted by the Republicans to harm the Democrats, and Kirkpatrick’s story served to weaken the Republican arguments. In Rosenthal’s words, “The Republicans hope to tarnish Democratic candidates by making it seem as though Mr. Obama doesn’t take al Qaida seriously.”

So pathetically, in a bid to defend Obama and Clinton and the rest of the Democrats, the Times published a report that showed that Obama’s laser like focus on the Zawahiri-controlled faction of al Qaida has endangered the US.

By failing to view as enemies any other terror groups — even if they have participated in attacks against the US – and indeed, in perceiving them as potential allies, Obama has failed to defend against them. Indeed, by wooing them as future allies, Obama has empowered forces as committed as al Qaida to defeating the US.

Again, it is not at all apparent that the Times realized what it was doing. But from Israel to Egypt, to Iran to Libya to Lebanon, it is absolutely clear that Obama and his colleagues continue to implement the same dangerous, destructive agenda that defeated the US in Benghazi and will continue to cause US defeat after US defeat.

    Pains me to say, due to the damage that results, that Glick presents a strong case-

    Too often Obama’s theories, implemented, fall far short of the lofty proclamations and wreak havoc instead.

    • A Z

      Obama will get it right because he is so smart … because he has a crease in his pants.

      Are you fortunate enough to have a crease n your pants?

      • iluvisrael

        It’s more proof of the hypocrisy, superficiality and emptiness of the lib/leftist worldview – impressed by ivy league degrees, creases in pants, toned arms, etc. Plus obama is, like, so cool. The good news is many have awakened from their obama induced slumber and have seen the light. Hope it’s enough to stave off more damage to this country over the next three years.

        • festmatt5440

          Yes ‘ ; but those in the ” middle ” of the herd ; will never be able to see , or acknowledge what is going on .

      • Tim Kern

        Just thinking about it gets my knickers in a knot.

    • y3524m

      you and the world are coming to the understanding of how a ‘community organizer/activist’ actually works.

      their premise is to sew agreement among those who are ‘militant, aggressive and disagreeable’ with the ‘establishment’ of the day in order to gain concessions and ultimately control.

      what they fail to understand is that by their collective acts they too become the establishment that we, the new disenfranchised must ultimately come together to regain control.

      • A Z

        Nicely said.

        But of course this time they think that they made the laws just for the 1st time and that things should not now change.

        • Albert8184

          Nicely said. But the flaw in that reasoning is that the newly disenfranchised people who see themselves that way are NOT like the same “anti-change” people who comprised the old establishment that was overturned.

          No. The disenfranchised now are the kids and the grandkids of the old establishment types. Many of them wouldn’t even go back to the “establishment” of Nixon’s days without a civil war happening. I’m talking about just stuff, like the arms race, censorship, passing out Bibles in schools, cohabitation outside marriage being illegal, etc..

          • A Z

            I do not know I would make “cohabitation outside marriage being illegal”

            My father gave his daughters the argument “If you can get the milk for free why buy the cow?”.

            It is essentially an argument based on game theory and not morality. I see nature and morality going hand in hand so to an extent it is not necessary to always give a moral argument when persuading. I guess I want to fall more on the libertarian way of things and explain why it is a bad ideal but not legislating against everything that is a bad ideal.

            Then again if said cohabitators make a claim against the people, group.government, for resources predicated on their bad lifestyle, then there is a strong argument for making such a law.

          • Albert8184

            The United States is NEVER going back to the days of old. It’s over. Forget about it. I’m glad I’m not going to be around too much longer to watch this once mighty nation fall into 3rd world status. or break apart.

          • A Z

            They did so in Africa. In Africa daughters frequently had a “luck baby”. A child conceived out of wedlock most likely from an alpha male who the woman probably could not get into a contract of marriage.

            And the parents were good with it. What they were not good with is is happening after the 1st time. They put a lot of pressure on the daughter to get married.

            This was not a Christian or Muslim area then. Yet the ideal of children in marriage was strong and viewed as the right way of doing things.

            With high infant mortality and a population capacity lower than the carrying capacity, the tradition of a luck baby could survive. But I suspect, when it got crowded and especially industrialized, parents would not tolerate a luck baby. The tradition would be deprecated. This would happen regardless of the Abrahamic religions existing or not.

            I used the search terms:
            +luck +baby +Nigeria +marriage

            I probably saw the tradition in a post by a syndicated pundit or read it in wiki. I am not finding it now.
            When I do I am caching it. From a sociological point of view it shows the social utility of marriage without referencing Abrahamic religions that so many REJECTIONISTS in society disregard

      • http://oldschooltwentysix.blogspot.com/ oldschooltwentysix

        It’s not about community organizers/activists to me, but the inability of people that live in the world of theory from understanding the world of reality.

        • Albert8184

          No. I’m sorry to say that you still don’t get it.

          • http://oldschooltwentysix.blogspot.com/ oldschooltwentysix

            Disagree if you like, but who are you to render this pronouncement?

            The original comment here was mine, so it seems the fact is that YOU don’t get it.

            Obama’s foreign policy, as Glick shows, is due to theories that when implemented prove faulty. This is seen in implementation of domestic policy as well. The theories are not realistic in application.

          • Albert8184

            Just my opinion. Obama isn’t delusional. He’s a radical Leftist who knows exactly what he’s doing. Obama’s foreign policy stems from a theory that he wants to realign the world and diminish the power of the United States and “transform” it.

            The theories aren’t realistic….. if you define “realistic” as doing what’s best for America to stay the world’s greatest nation. On the other hand, I have every single reason in the world to believe the Left wants otherwise, and I have since the days when I saw them siding with the commies against their own country and doing everything they could to validate their motives for burning the flag and trashing our history.

            What I can’t figure out is how so many people just don’t get it yet. The dots aren’t connecting.

            Even as they see their kids come out of college talking Marxism.

          • http://oldschooltwentysix.blogspot.com/ oldschooltwentysix

            I am well aware of the arguments you make, and not wholly in disagreement that they are factors. The statement about getting it was presumptuous.

            I don’t believe that Glick’s article was about Obama the Marxist, however, except perhaps indirectly. My point was to reinforce that those who push theories can cause great damage when reality happens, as has occurred here.

          • Josh

            Just as your thoughts saying Obama has tried theories that hasn’t worked..

          • Albert8184

            I understand what you mean by “presumptuous”. I was responding to your initial statement at face value rather than seeing it in a broader context. I didn’t mean to sound aggressive.

            But my question is, when we see a man pouring gasoline on a fire while he screams “I’ll put the fire out”, what should we think?

          • pachebal

            I think Obama is even beyond Marxism. It appears that Illuminati and hidden agenda are what he’s working towards.

          • Albert8184

            I believe Marxism is a utopian philosophy that is an aspect or facet of Illuminist activities. It is a tool of revolutionary manipulation expecially, used to counteract “problematic societies” for instance.

            I think Obama is a useful idiot. He’s a puppet who’s sold his soul for the life of prestige. Not that he doesn’t really care about some things… but there’s no benefit in being “a nobody”.

          • y3524m

            spot on.

          • Josh

            Who are you to render your pronouncement.. it’s a two way street

          • http://oldschooltwentysix.blogspot.com/ oldschooltwentysix

            I gave my opinion about the article, not in response to anyone or as a challenge with a pronouncement that they did not get it.

            If you cannot see the difference, then it is not my doing.

        • y3524m

          precisely! this is the magic of the inexperienced left in that they and they alone have the magic though in fact they have no real experiences, worldly or otherwise…but they do have ‘intended’ consequences.

      • Albert8184

        I don’t think anybody is really understanding anything here about Obama’s intentions or his “organizing”.

        What the Left fails the understand is that they are not going to end up with what they think they will end up with. It’s actually going to be a lot worse than that. And I’m not even convinced they don’t know that anyway.

        What the rest of us don’t understand is that these people are going to F the United States up so badly that we won’t be able to put it back together except on a billion to one long shot miracle.

        • y3524m

          i agree with your premise. I do believe there is a chance to right the wrongs so long as the next President is not a democrat. failing that, we are screwed.

        • Shel_Zahav

          In Germany in the 1920s, the leftists abetted the Nazzis thinking that they could use them to overthrow democracy and then the leftists would seize control and make the country that workers’ paradise that Marx envisioned (and thought that Germany was the perfect place for the revolution to begin).

          Today, history repeats with the leftists abetting the Islamists. But, history will repeat the outcome with the Islamists overrunning socialist Europe and threatening America, just as the Nazzis before them.

          • Albert8184

            It wasn’t so much as abetting as it was mutual hatred in the competition for power – in which the communists were at a distinct disadvantage against Hitler’s ruthlessness and charismatic leadership.

            Even though both ideologies are rooted in economic Leftist theory, they are essentially irreconcilable between nationalism and internationalism.

          • Shel_Zahav

            Regarding Hitler, he became quite the internationalist, didn’t he? He conquered most of Europe.

          • Albert8184

            He became a colonizer… that’s different.

          • Shel_Zahav

            That’s the leftist term for the same thing. Leftists like to say that Stalin was different. But how? He also took over other countries by war, killing, theft. But, somehow, the leftists like to whitewash his crimes and millions of murders.

          • Albert8184

            Leftists USED to whitewash Stalin. Now they prefer to ignore him and use the oldest Leftist cliche in the book:

            “Stalin wasn’t REALLY a socialist… a communist…. a Marxist”

            They use the same excuse for ALL their failures that can’t be ignored in history. But remember, for every single spectacular failure of Marxism in the 20th century, there are a dozen more that nobody really remembers. All the failures in the Middle East, in Africa, in Asia and the Pacific. All the dirty secrets they left scattered around the second and third world.

            Now they want to tell themselves that communism can’t succeed until the hegemony of American economic dominance is taken down and her relationships to key resource controllers – OPEC, for one – are smashed and destroyed.

            And that’s what they’ve been actively working at since abandoning militant Marxist-Leninist doctrine, shortly before the fall of the Soviet Union. And they’ve been covertly at work in the West setting the stage for a shift in tactics, since before WW2

          • Shel_Zahav

            The communists wanted to do the mass murdering, but they were beaten to the punch.

          • Albert8184

            Not overall. They lost to Hitler, but they preceded him and they succeeded him in sheer atrocities.

            The Nazis and communists are two wings on the same bird, by the way. The common cliche that the Nazis were pure right wingers is another example of self-serving Leftist revisionism.

            Fascism is a distortion of generally Leftist movements originating from the same philosophical threads that gave rise to socialism.

            I like to think of Fascism this way: Fascism is what happens when socialism fails and Left wingers resort to desperate populist measures to stay in power. A new “Messiah” steps forward to rally the disillusioned masses with a “vision”. An enemy is identified, a great renewal is launched and generally some great “public works project” is launched as an economic recovery plan.

            I wonder how it’s going to play out in America.

  • David Brown

    I disagree with the premises, or guideposts. I think Obama believes that Islamist anger towards the U.S. is justifiable. That he views them as freedom fighters trying to combat Capitalist Imperialism and oppression. Obama believes that if he is able to demonstrate that he can change the U.S. to be more to their liking, just given enough time, and with new, less oppressive governments in their own countries, they will cease attacking the West. With regards to Al-Qaeda, he has to draw the line somewhere and to also be in line with popular opinion. Obama believes Socialism to be the answer to the world’s problems, including Islam’s, betting that once there’s a level playing field, Muslims will no longer push the Caliphate agenda.

    • y3524m

      exactly! this is the mantra of any community activist/social re-engineer.

    • edlancey

      I agree with the first part but I actually think that Obama wants an Islamic Caliphate so that the “muslim world” can be represented as a “bloc” rather than a bunch of ragtag countries.

      He wants an Islamic Caliphate and he wants the Muslim Brotherhood to set it up and run it. That’s why he supports them at every turn, in spite of their evident perfidy and hatred of the West (apart from greenbacks and green cards).

      • David Brown

        Islam already has a bloc, the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, a 57 nation coalition which increasingly influences the U.N. I think his interest in the M.B. is their ability to influence nations to adopt Socialist policies since they are active in 70 nations, and actively pursue politics where ever they can. Obama is not a Muslim, neither is he a Christian, although the majority of Muslims believe he is a Muslim, mostly because his father was and that’s the way most people officially become Muslims (by birth). Obama uses religion as a gateway for votes as is common for many politicians.

        • Albert8184

          I believe Obama is a socialist Muslim. They do exist you know. And most of the Muslim countries in the world define themselves as socialist states in their Constitutions.

      • Albert8184

        That’s EXACTLY what the Left wants, Ed. It’s not just Obama. I think it’s been going on since the days of Carter. It’s all about that magic word “appeasement.” The Left is convinced that the Middle East hates the West because of colonialism and the carving up of the caliphate after WW1 by the Western powers, resulting in a infidel designed Muslim world and ESPECIALLY an Israeli nation planted right on top of their collective heads in Palestine.

        This whole Arab Spring business has been about overturning as many of the old Western/Soviet Bloc nations as possible and helping the Muslim Brotherhood out with re-Islamicizing them.
        Iran was the first to fall. And then Iraq.

        I think the Left and Islam have an alliance of convenience since the days of WW2 because they have a mutual enemy: Western Civilization.

    O’traitor! Arming the enemy for vain-glorious intent. A new rope is too good for you:

    “May his pipe never smoke, may his teapot be broke
    And to add to the joke, may his kettle ne’er boil,
    May he keep to the bed till the hour that he’s dead,
    May he always be fed on hogwash and boiled oil,
    May he swell with the gout, may his grinders fall out,
    May he howl and shout with the horrid toothache,
    May the temples wear horns, and the toes many corns,

    brilliant article.

  • justquitnow

    He gets Bin Laden, he kills many many terrorists, Kadafi was toppled without a war or invasion and we didn’t go to war in Syria but got Assad to give up his chemical weapons. I think Caroline and FPM are deathly afraid that we will get through the next decade without having a war with Iran. If we don’t have to go to war with Iran AND they don’t nuke Israel, isn’t that what you should be hoping for?

    I know…everything is evidence of what you think or say. Oh…Times refutes all the conspiracy bs that FPM has been spinning for over a year….well this is of course evidence that Obama loves Muslims and hates America just like we thought….derp.

    • WillielomanIII

      Who is the “he” you spoke of? And bin laden was just one of millions of racist islamist pedophiles and childmurders… so by your definition, if Obama allows our military to kill a few of the millions of terrorists, but then allows the other millions to attach Christians and Jews and Hindus and others he is some anti-islamist? Really?? You must be in Colorado after a long night of partying….grow up…only fools would listen to you

      • justquitnow

        wow…well first off “he” in that last post was the President. I know Frontpage and WND and so forth like to run articles anytime a “Christian” area or church is harmed in anyway somewhere on the planet, but “we” (the US) can’t intervene in every country and they are just highlighting some violence over here and diminishing it over here in however they can spin it against Obama…like it’s his freaking fault.

        Your mind has been filled with this “Obama is muslim and trying to help muslims cut off your head” canard…so, naturally all the things he has done against the islamic terrorists including getting Bin Laden (who was the most wanted person in the world remember) is just cover for his real intentions. You realize these real intentions will never manifest and years after Obama is President you will mutter through your pudding that Obama was a muslim.

          Obama is a Muslim. Obama Sr. was a Muslim which in the Muslim world automatically makes Junior a Muslim. You might want to learn more about Islam.

          • T800

            Comrade Obama was BORN to a muslim father,according to most Islamic experts,that makes him muslim. Comrade Hussein was registered as a muslim at TWO Indonesian schools,went to mosque,prayed with his muslim stepfather,and studied the Koran. Comrade Hussein himself said in one of his books that he CONVERTED to Christianity in his 20′s at the Very Racist Reverend Wright’s “church” ; conversion implies he was something else before that conversion;muslim. But according to the Koran,renouncing Islam is APOSTASY,and the Koran demands apostates be killed by one of the Faithful. Yet NO Imam has issued any fatwa calling for Comrade Hussein’s death. Muslims worldwide consider Comrade Obama to BE a muslim.

          • BTeboe

            Under Islam it is perfectly acceptable for a Muslim to lie to a non-muslim or infidel. Obama is Muslim. He has said that when the caca hits the fan he will stand with the Muslims. He gave NASA the mission of conducting Muslim outreach. He invites Muslims to the WH. Never mentions Christ or the Bible, but comments about how beautiful the call to Muslim prayer is. How many clues does a person need?

          • justquitnow

            Is NASA doing outreach to Muslims in space?

            Have you ever meditated in a temple of any flavor. The chanting and so forth can be hauntingly beautiful…oops I’m a buddhist monk now…dammit.

            No wait…let me correct that…I think “bringing in the sheaves” is the most beautiful sound on earth…whew…that was a close one.

          • BTeboe

            Actually NASA is not doing much of anything these days as Obama has decided that NASA’s missions can better be handled by private enterprise. But yes, smart @ss, he wanted NASA to bring the achievements of math and science of Muslims to the rest of the world. Too bad the Muslims spend so much time trying to enslave the rest of the world. Islam – accept it or die.

          • justquitnow

            NASA is doing a ton of things man. We have many missions ongoing. I have no idea what you are talking about. A Muslim scholar invented algebra…is that what you mean?

          • Spinoneone

            His step-father was also a Muslim. Obama was educated in a madrassa in Indonesia until he was 10 years old. Those are both historical facts and Obama himself has written about it. So, yes, he was a Muslim at birth and remained one at least until he supposedly converted to Christianity….if that is what you can call what the “Reverend” Mr. Wright preaches.

            And more than once , he has said the most beautiful sound is the call to prayer at sunrise ! He didn’t say the sound of the choir singing in church …NO! Nor the sound of the organ playing amazing grace !

          Did you see the body of bin laden ? No! So we really have the word of the LIAR-IN-CHIEF that he is really dead ! If you notice in the middle east , they sacrifice their own to get the job done, so why wouldn’t the Pres. do the same , he doesn’t care about anyone as long as his agenda is completed, and why reveal your true identity before you job is done.

  • Bamaguje

    The distinction between Al-Qaeda and other Jihadi terrorists is like between six and half a dozen.
    They all share the same Jihadist agenda of violent imposition of a global Islamic Caliphate. So it is pointless arguing whether or not Al-Qaeada was directly responsible for the Benghazi attack.
    Anti-American Jihadists did it, period!!

        perhaps they are intended to “fail”.
        “once is accidental,twice is coincidence,three times is enemy action.”
        It’s all part of his efforts to weaken the US economically,politically,and militarily.
        1.He’s blocked domestic energy production,he’s hindered our economy terribly.
        2.He’s insulted our allies and aided our enemies,like the Muslim Brotherhood.
        3.He’s weakened our military,both through the weak economy and by shutting down needed programs such as missile defense,F-22 program,signing New START,and so on.

        Comrade Obama IS the muslim Manchurian Candidate.

        There’s a reason why post-college,Comrade Hussein traveled to Pakistan. it’s not because he was a Christian. There’s a reason why Comrade Hussein was aided in getting into college by Saudi money and influence.

    • Lanna

      That’s why we can never trust the Obama administration…he has allowed Muslims to infiltrate our national security, they don’t make decisions that will help America or keep her safe, and that’s why Israel and Netanyahu should never ever trust Obama, Kerry, Brennan, or Hagel.

  • Lanna

    Caroline Glick is right most of the time….very good write up. The evidence is overwhelming that the attack was terrorism, pre-planned, and implemented to bring down the Benghazi compound! All these terrorist groups are on the same coin, with the same goals, the fact that the Obama administration said, “Don’t fear the Muslim Brotherhood,” puts him right smack dab into the middle of the controversy! Morsi was chosen to take over Egypt and help establish the One World Caliphate with Sharia Law. There is a resurgence of AlQaida, and the world faces worse terrorism in all Islamic states.

    • doodledandy

  • Rev. Roy

    Caroline is a very astute and able disseminator of the facts and ranks amongst the most knowledgable and outspoken writers of these times, yet, i fear she is still victim to some invisible, over-arching “umbrella” that keeps everyone from really going after Obama’s Muslim connections. I believe the Egyptian papers had it right a few weks ago when they stated they had “proof positive” that Obama is the head of the Muslim Brotherhood. There is no other “sane” reason for his actions, his attacks on all that is Christian or Jewish and his lofty lies and exagerrations as to the importance of Islam to the U.S. and the world at large. I am waiting for some brave media writers and bloggers to pursue this avenue of the growing Obama/Hitler/Muslim agenda.

    From the very beginning, the allegation from Admiral Lyons was that these group’s main aim, on behalf of the Muslim Brotherhood, was to kidnap Ambassador Stevens so that Obama could exchange him for Sheikh Omar Abdel-Rahman (the blind sheikh). If you remember, this was the first sworn vow of Mohamed Morsi’s.

    (AP) CAIRO – In his first public speech addressing tens of thousands of mostly Islamist supporters, Egypt’s president-elect Mohammed Morsi has vowed to free the blind sheikh jailed in the U.S. for a plot to blow up New York City landmarks.

    The next thing the New York Times will be reporting is that the riot at the Cairo embassy over the video was real, but that Al Qaeda wasn’t involved.

    This is just another attempt to wash the blood off of Hillary Clinton’s incompetent hands before the next presidential election.

    Amazing how everyone claims that Obama is a Muslim, and yet he has killed more Muslims in Pakistan and Yemen with drones in the first few years of office than George W. Bush did in his entire administration. But I guess that’s all just to distract us from his plot to become Caliph, he’s trying to distract us by killing Al Qaeda members while he secretly builds his Global Caliphate by allowing Muslims to play in the NFL and allowing “Happy Eid” cards to be printed and distributed in America.

    The NY Times, bless their little pointy heads, only reiterate that which all Americans have known since 2007. Obama is a lying numbskull who appoints and parties with those more than or as stupid as he. He is, beyond any shadow of doubt, a foreign imposter who had blatantly illegal help getting elected in order to do his crimes. Obama’s finish is close at hand, during 2014. His true identity will be disclosed and justice will be done. nearly all Democrats and all false conservatives will be deposed and this great Republic will be back on the road to good health and her rightful place in world society. Of we play our hand properly, Obama, Clinton, Panetta, and Holder will be tried and executed for Treason and Accessory to murder. I am certain that I am not alone in praying for such an outcome. Members of the 113th Congress will certainly bring charges of Ethics Violation and failure to carry out their Oath of Office against numerous members of both houses resulting in expulsion for many, censure for others and removal from certain choice committees for the rest. Representatives Trey Gowdy, Paul Gosar Michele Bachmann, Cynthia Lummis and Pete Sessions and Senators Ted Cruz, Rand Paul will lead the charge for America.

  • Albert8184

    But, of course, this entire “mortal blow” theory is predicated on the notion that the White House doesn’t pre-approve stories published in newspapers friendly to the Leftist agenda. And we see the Kirkpatrick article has produced what???

    “Instead, the discussion has focused on his claim that there is “no evidence that al Qaida or other international terrorist group had any role ….. the YouTube video did spur to action some of the participants in the assault.”

    Bingo. And no discussion of Obama’s “flawed worldview”. Sounds like pre-approval to me. So, if the White House did approve this article, then the story perfectly suits their meme, doesn’t it? Here’s a critical thing about the timing of refutations and denials here:

    “Kirkpatrick’s claim that al Qaida played no role in the attack was refuted by the Times’ own reporting six weeks after the attack. ……His claim that the YouTube video did spur some of the attackers to action was categorically rejected last spring….”

    Right. Kirkpatrick isn’t being refuted by SHEET. He’s the one doing the refuting. His article was published this week. He’s contradicting things revealed last year, which EVERYONE HAS IGNORED ALREADY.

    This article admits that fact. Forget about it. Benghazi is just one more tragic cover up in an infinitely long trail of betrayals by our elected traitors going back to the days of Woodrow Wilson.

    • justquitnow

      Well since the inclusion or exclusion of the word “Al Qaida” in talking points was the original stink, it’s important to see conclusively after not taking anyone’s word for it that after umpteen hearings and investigations and bs, that it was not a political maneuver by the White House to somehow spare itself…something for a couple of days….and…sh*t I forgot what the original accusation was, but you guys have moved on to other juicier things…

      • Albert8184

        Juicer things? I remember when Watergate was the biggest crime of the century. Now, the murder of a US Diplomat and the corresponding coverup by his own country is no big deal.

    Anyone with any common sense knew from the start the Benghazi, Libya attack on our embassy 9/11/2012 was a planned attack to coincide with the Twin Towers attack of 9/11/2001 & barack hussein obama, hillary clinton. jay carney, susan rice & the msm should apologize to the man they accused that his film incited the attack in Benghazi,Libya in truth the other demonstrations in other muslim countries was caused by these lying Un-American idiots popping off to the world that the film was the cause when they knew it wasn’t the cause & these other demonstations in other muslim countries would possibly never have happened if they hadn’t broadcast their LIES to the world that a film on YouTube was the cause. I wonder how long it took them to find the film on You Tube to take the blame for obamas constant bragging that he killed Osama Bin Laden & or Ghadaffi was the real cause of the attack. They probably had this film in their binder files just to publish for an event just like what happened to cover their behinds. But that is the way the democrats & obama operate it wasn’t me it was someone or something else. Obama lied on the Letterman show while Letterman & his ignorant audience clapped approval. Here’s the Letterman goon show site on YouTube link below. When obama refers to the shadowy character on the video I thought to myself obama is the real shadowy character. .Robert Prinz

    Mr. Obama is doing exactly what his behind the scenes superiors are directing him to do. His mission is to betray America and the people that believe in him until this nation is taken down to rubble. The America that we were led to believe in is nothing more than a fictional land. The same powers of the elite power mongers have been at work for many decades in preparation for this time. Mr. Obama is merely a puppet that believes in his duty to cooperate with the chaos and destructive force to bring the great fall of the U.S.. It is working and nothing short of a total rebellion of patriotic Americans can attempt to stop it. Confusion and apathy has been the result. Our freedoms as Americans are quickly being taken away without representation of our Constitution which will shortly be abolished by the monster that awaits us. God have mercy.

    “The administration has dubbed the Zawahiri faction of al Qaida “core al
    Qaida.” And anyone who operates in the name of al Qaida, or any other
    group, that does not have courtroom certified operational links to
    Zawahiri, is not really al Qaida, and therefore, not really a terrorist
    group or a US enemy.”

    The NYT and the Obama regime are essentially saying that an ‘al Qaida affiliate’ does not really pose the same threat to us that al Qaida itself does. That’s like saying that Hezbollah does not answer to or is not supported by Iran. Or that CAIR is completely independent of the Muslim Brotherhood and is only a Muslim civil rights organization. Or that a Muslim fanatic in the US Army stationed in Ft. Hood, TX who shouted ‘Allah u Akbar’ while shooting at military personnel was acting on his own with no connection to Islamist ideology or agendas.

    This regime is all about making speeches, creating neologisms, diverting attention, producing distractions, mislabeling events, denying the real nature of things, calling things by another name, etc.”

    Al Qaida is dead. You can keep your health plan and doctor if you like. Benghazi was a Muslim response to an Islamophobic move promotion. The IRS did not target conservative or Tea Party groups. The NSA is not spying on you. The economy is roaring back to health. Democracy has been established in the Middle East and North Africa. Iraq has achieved stability without ethnic or religions strife. Etc., Etc.

    LIES! ALL LIES!

      “The NYT and the Obama regime are essentially saying that an ‘al Qaida affiliate’ does not really pose the same threat to us that al Qaida itself does. ” No…that’s what the writer of this blog post was saying they were saying. He’s basically using a strawman against the NYT.

    Keep your friends close, and your enemies even closer. Obama has kept his enemies close and our friends very distant. But then, what does a community organizer know about international relations and politics? Maybe Obama wants Iran to acquire nuclear weapons so it can annihilate the entire Middle East and North Africa, making his life much simpler and allowing him to continue on his never-ending domestic crusade of demagoguery and propaganda?

    One must ask: ‘Where do you get the arrogance and conceit to think that you are the answer to all the world’s problems?” Especially when you have numerous personal problems to deal with at the same time?

      What does he want?
      Obama is a Muslim.
      As a child, he studied in a Madrassa.
      Almost all of his relatives are Muslim.
      In many public speeches, he praises Islam.
      Robert Spencer was fired as advisor for the FBI against Islamic attacks and replaced by a whitewash approch…
      You have a wolf in a sheepskin as president.

    You Yanks have got a crap government and you need to get rid of it. Very fast, very soon. Even if it means a ‘hit’. Sorry, but I can see no other way. Wake up, America! Don’t cower, for you have friends. Many.

  • 1Indioviejo1

    The more they learn, the more confused they become. They can’t see the trees for the forrest. Yet, they tell the American people how fine they are and they need to be trusted on foreign policy because they KNOW all about it. It is trully nauseating to have these people in power.

    The military, particularly the DIA, knows what occurred and refutes the NY Times’ assertions. We’re heading back to the days when we define the word “is”. Sorry Charlie.

    It would be no surprise if the Muslim Brotherhood operatives, intimate with the upper echelon of the Obama and Bush administrations, are responsible for the Obama administrations adoption of this Middle East policy. These operatives are l very sophisticated, politically astute, skilled subversives who, over time, have been able to convince the Washington establishment along with the media, academia and Hollywood, that Muslim terrorists are really benign, peace loving folk acting out their frustrations in a manner much maligned and exaggerated by those fringe, “bigoted, Islamophobic hate mongers.”

    Taqiyya, or the art of lying as a sanctioned Jihadist tactic, is being successfully practiced around the gullible western world. This assertion by Ms. Glick, if accurate, is evidence of its effectiveness and its inherent threat.

  • LindaRivera

    Obama’s presidency has made the world a far more dangerous place.
    Obama placed Muslim Brotherhood operatives into places of enormous power in the U.S. government. The MB help to make both domestic and foreign policy. Al Qaeda is the military wing of the Muslim Brotherhood.

  • CurmudgyOne

    Obama only purports to support the defeat of Al Qaeda because that is the organization that the great majority of Americans WANTS defeated. Because there is no public pressure, he is free to appease and assist his other Islamic friends, through obfuscation and outright support or through fake “negotiations” that are now making no progress; QED. Obama supports Islam, including extremist Islam, at the expense of what he lyingly claims is “his” country, actually our USA.

  • CurmudgyOne

    Obama favors Islam over American interests in the Middle East. He only goes after Al Qaeda because, if he didn’t, the American public would see him for what he is.

  • CurmudgyOne

    I guess I can’t say that Obama favors Islam. Too bad this column allows its columnists to say so, but not commenters.

  • CurmudgyOne

    Moderator: email me with explanation. Why can’t I say Obama favors Islam?

  • CurmudgyOne

    So, someone can say “A new rope is too good for him,” but I can’t say Obama Favors Islam?

    When Obama bowed to the Saudi prince, he really was serious in his devotion to the hideous sound of a pagan devotee screaming his dangerous superstition from a mosque tower. The West is screwed if Obama gets his way.

    Let us remember two important facts:

    (1) The heads of the PA were elected 10 years ago to a 4 year term.
    Like all Arab tyrants, they are not interested in democracy or reform,
    but to stay in power. That is more important to them than the ruse of
    Palestinian nationhood.

    (2) Almost all the factions constituting the PA and virtually all of
    their rivals (Hamas, Islamic Jihad, etc.) are dedicated to destroying
    Israel and have no desire to reach a permanent accommodation where
    Israel exists in any form along with a normalization of relations. They
    just cannot do this, so a true peace agreement is out of the question.

    So, whatever Israel does does not alter:

    (1) Ongoing terror attacks against civilians

    (2) Firing of missiles from Gaza at civilian targets in Israel including purposeful attempts to murder civilians

    (3) The EU ignoring these flagrant violations of morality, law and treaties

    (4) Der Sturmer-like news outlets like The Guardian, BBC, and the NYT
    publishing the most ridiculous falsehoods about Israel based on
    misguided beliefs and prejudices.

    (5) John Kerry’s peace process. Since the Secretary of State is
    really using this process to support his desire to run for president
    next year, he will not hesitate to spend any amount of US taxpayer money
    in this effort. It isn’t about peace, it is about, “I wanna be elected.”

    Substitute “American State Dept/CIA Establishment” for “Obama” and that’s it. The real turn in Washington was the W.’s 2nd term, with all neocons gotten rid of. Then, the bipartisan Baker/Hamilton Iraq Study Group Report of 2007 finalized it, calling to accommodate “Iran’s reasonable regional aspirations”. The fake NIE of late 2007 promptly declared the mullahs has stopped their nuke program (false).

    So it’s far more than just Obama. He carries out the Grand Stability Strategy by Brzezinski, who in November 2008 Chattham House speech set it as 1. US no more playing the leader in the world and instead partnering with Europe big 3 as equals (re Libya etc.) 2. Engaging BRIC and forming G20 (done) 3. Accommodating true regional powers like Iran (specifically by name) and 4. PACIFYING Israel.

    Whether he’s a villain or a fool, the jury is still out. For one, he says there, “obviously, the Palestinians will have to renounce their claims of return for refugees”. This is delusional, if honest. The US Establishment are apparently a bunch of fools. And they do this in the name of “stability”. Re Syria and Libya and Iraq. “The peoples of the ME are rising”, said Brzez back then, “and either we engage with them or will have to kill millions of them — and we’re not prepared to do the latter”. And Obama has said, “Change is coming to the ME, and when it comes, I will stand with the Muslims” (brotherhood, eh?). Done.
