Biden puts his base, lefties and black nationalists, first and America last. No responsible leader who cares about American lives would have done this. And had Trump or any Republican president done this, the media would be having a fit about putting celebrities with special access ahead of national security.
Meanwhile, Paul Whelan, a former Marine, who is the wrong race, white, the wrong sexual orientation and sex, was left behind by Biden.
That’s equity for you.
The Biden administration didn’t even try negotiating with Russia for the release of anti-American WNBA pothead Brittney Griner, just offered Victor Bout straight up.
Who’s Bout? A very, very bad guy.
Bout was convicted of conspiracy to kill US citizens and officials, deliver anti-aircraft missiles and provide aid to a terrorist organisation.
During Bout’s trial, which began on 12 October, prosecutors said the weapons had been intended to arm the group against what Bout had called a common enemy: US forces supporting the Colombian government.
In the opening statements of his trial the prosecution alleged that Bout had agreed to deliver 100 surface-to-air missiles, 20,000 high-powered rifles and 10m rounds of ammunition to rebels in Colombia in 2008.
They told the jury that Bout had been told the weapons would be used to target US pilots working with Colombian officials.
Prosecutors say Bout replied: “We have the same enemy.”
And then there are the alleged Hezbollah ties.
That changed, he said, by the time Bout met with Hezbollah guerrilla leaders in Lebanon in 2006. That meeting apparently led to the delivery of late Soviet-era anti-tank weapons and rocket propelled grenades. Hezbollah immediately used these weapons in the summer 2006 war with Israel.
And then there’s Al Qaeda.
One of Bout’s first known missions on behalf of an al Qaeda-related entity occurred during the Bosnian War. In 1992, Sudan, which was then a hotbed for jihadism, helped arrange shipments of weapons to the Third World Relief Agency (TWRA), which was arming jihadists in Bosnia.
The TWRA is one of those organizations that defies common myths about al Qaeda and how it has operated. On TWRA’s board sat Wael Julaidan, a co-founder of al Qaeda, and Hassan Cengic, a Bosnian official who served as an Iranian intelligence agent and organized arms shipments from Tehran. Meanwhile, the TWRA received tens of millions of dollars from Saudi sources, including the royal family.
Hope Brittney being able to jeer the anthem while smoking pot here is worth the innocent lives this will cost. The media keeps going on about Republicans helping Putin, they and their puppet just gave Putin his biggest win yet. And Biden has also incentivized hostage-taking by enemy regimes.
