From Fort Hood to Kabul
For Biden, American soldiers aren’t killed by Islamic terrorists; they only “fall” in senseless tragedy.
In his delayed response to the terrorist bombing that killed 13 Americans, Joe Biden mumbled something about his late son Beau but mentioned not a single American victim by name. That recalls the Delaware Democrat’s response to another deadly terrorist attack, on U.S. soil, that also claimed 13 American lives.
In 2009, U.S. Army major Nidal Hasan, a self-described “soldier of Allah,” was communicating with al Qaeda terrorist Anwar al-Awlaki about killing Americans. As congressional hearings made clear, the FBI was on to Hasan but bureau bosses dropped the surveillance. On November 5, 2009, at Fort Hood, Texas, Hasan murdered 13 American soldiers and wounded more than 40 others.
For the composite character president David Garrow described in Rising Star: The Making of Barack Obama, it was only “workplace violence,” not even gun violence. Vice president Joe Biden said, “Jill and I join the President and Michelle in expressing our sympathies to the families of the brave soldiers who fell today. We are all praying for those who were wounded and hoping for their full and speedy recovery. Our thoughts and prayers are also with the entire Fort Hood community as they deal with this senseless tragedy.”
These unarmed soldiers were gunned down by Nidal Hasan in a terrorist attack, but for Biden they only “fell,” as though it was some sort of accident. For the vice president, the mass murder was only a “senseless tragedy,” not a deliberate mass murder, carefully planned. As vice president, Biden would have access to the best information, but he mentioned not a single American victim by name. As it happened, those soldiers were shipping out to Afghanistan, and Joe Biden’s mentor has a history there.
A Biden loyalist since his first presidential run, Tom Donilon was an assistant secretary of state under Bill Clinton. Donilon’s troubles as a Fannie Mae lobbyist, and lack of experience in foreign affairs, did not prevent his rise to national security advisor, a choice that troubled even Robert Scheer of The Nation.
In Duty: Memoirs of a Secretary of State at War, Robert Gates wrote that Donilon characterized the United States military as “in revolt” and “insubordinate.” Donilon, who had never been in the military, “bridled” when Gen. McChrystal announced a “counterinsurgency” strategy in Afghanistan. “Obama’s Gray Man,” as Donilon was known, did not want American troops to be seen defeating their enemies. The composite character president took that to another level.
In exchange for one American deserter, Bowe Bergdahl, Obama sprung five hard-core Taliban commanders from Guantanamo Bay. It was like trading Private Slovik for the German high command. Released with the others in 2014, Khairullah Khairkhwa proceeded to reunite the Taliban and help them capture power in Afghanistan.
In 2021, Biden’s military has been sharing intelligence with the Taliban, but there’s more to it. As with Communist China, Biden appears to believe the Taliban are “not bad folks,” and worthy of partnership. True to form, under commander-in-chief Biden, the U.S. military gave the Taliban a list of Americans still trapped in Afghanistan.
Biden also hired the Taliban for security at the airport, akin to hiring the Einsatzgruppen to aid refugees fleeing the Nazis. The Taliban proceeded to let ISIS-K, a Taliban faction, through a check point and they detonated the bomb that claimed 13 American lives. That is the same number as at Fort Hood, unless you count the unborn child of Pvt. Francheska Velez, who died crying “my baby!”
In a recent presser, Biden said he had been “instructed” to call on certain journalists. There are doubtless a host of intermediaries but the lead instructor is doubtless the composite character his own selves. The former Barry Soetoro, stepson of the Indonesian Lolo Soetoro his mother married in 1965, would not link terrorism with Islam. Instead he targeted Americans who support limited government and constitutional rights, particularly the First and Second Amendments.
As the erudite David Garrow noted, Dreams from My Father was a novel, not an autobiography, and the composite character has since issued two ghosted autohagiographies, most recently A Promised Land. Everything happening now is what the composite character wanted to happen. He wanted to send planeloads of cash to Iran, and he did, so collaboration with the Taliban is no problem.
Joe Biden’s FBI, DOJ and military now target “white supremacists,” but that does not mean pasty-faced types such as Bernie Sanders, Nancy Pelosi, or Gen. Milley. “White supremacist” is deep-state code for anyone less than worshipful of the composite character and his chosen successor Joe Biden. The Delaware Democrat tells African Americans who don’t support him they “ain’t black,” falls three times getting into Air Force One, and so on.
To all but the willfully blind, it has long been apparent that Joe Biden needs a brain, spine and testicle transplant. His response to American deaths in Afghanistan, like his response to Fort Hood, reveals a poltroon without a soul. If anybody thought the composite character is instructing Joe Biden to strengthen the Taliban and weaken the United States of America it would be hard to blame them.
