Focus on Boko Haram right now seems fishy to me

I find it interesting that everyone (including the First Lady) is now all up in arms about Boko Haram and their jihadist actions. After all, we reported on the kidnappings of the girls quite some time ago – this isn’t breaking news. This Islamic terrorist group has a long rap sheet of atrocities, such as burning alive some 50 boys and attacking Christians over these past three to four years on Christmas and Easter.

Isn’t it interesting that all of a sudden when celebrities get engaged, it becomes a national emergency? Who else needs to issue a hash tag alert? But why now? As Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton refused to declare Boko Haram a terrorist organization.

So why all the attention now?

Remember the movie with Robert Deniro and Dustin Hoffman called “Wag the Dog?” Funny thing, that film was released just before the Clinton-Lewinsky kabuki dance and the infamous pharmaceutical factory bombing in Sudan by President Clinton (and by the way, Monica is back in the limelight thanks to an article in Vanity Fair – but I digress – or maybe not).

Are we witnessing an Obama “Wag the Dog” moment with Boko Haram in Nigeria? I say yes.

Consider all the scandals facing the Obama administration, especially Benghazi and the Select Committee, which Rep. Nancy Pelosi referred to as a “political stunt.” Really? Four Americans die, we’re told it was because of an anti-Islam video, no one has been “brought to justice” and THAT is a phony scandal and a political stunt? Boy, if this had been a Republican president, he or she certainly would never have been reelected because the media would have been all over it. Instead the media is doing everything possible to protect Obama.

So, perhaps Obama, Rice, Clinton, Reid, Pelosi, Rhodes, and the cast of characters can tell us why was Ambassador Chris Stevens in Benghazi on 9-11? Not to mention, why was he there without proper security, and who denied his request for security — and Libyan Islamist militia is not the answer.

We need to start at the beginning: why did we support Islamist forces in Libya in the first place? If it was a humanitarian crisis, then why not Syria? Or perhaps the intention all along was to support the Islamist forces in Syria as well?

If President Obama gave an order to Secretary of Defense Panetta and Chairman of Joint Chiefs General Dempsey to make sure those under attack got all the resources necessary — then why didn’t they get them? Or did Obama not give that order before he went to bed? And if it was given, who countermanded the order and told American forces to stand down?

Where are the weapons provided to the Libyan Islamists? Were we trying to collect and redistribute those weapons to the Syrian Islamists? And just as a last inquiry, why haven’t we heard from the 30 or so survivors of the terrorist attack? And who made them sign non-disclosure agreements precluding them from speaking about the incident?

So, those are just a few of my questions that I would be asking if I were on that Select Committee – for starters.

The second major scandal confronting the Obama crew of misfits is the Veterans Administration list issue. You know it’s fascinating. Obama had lots to say about the Los Angeles Clippers owner, but nothing about vets on a death list. And it seems this isn’t an isolated incident. I don’t expect Obama to address the American Legion or Veterans of Foreign Wars anytime soon.

So what better time than right now, to create the straw man of Boko Haram, another distraction for which no real action will take place. Anyone remember Joseph Kony?

And by the way, what exactly is happening in Ukraine?

Gotta give it to the Democrats, they know how to make life imitate art. Sadly, as a nation we’re falling for another episode of liberal progressive “Wag the Dog.”

And just a few final comments about my trip last week. As I departed Daytona Beach heading home to Palm Beach Gardens yesterday, I reflected on all the incredible sights I’d seen — and great Americans I’d met. It was a memorable week – and exhausting as I’ll never forget the heat crossing the lower California and Arizona desert. I think my favorite town name will always be Gila Bend in Arizona – never got to see one of those poisonous lizards.

Now I’m back home for just a few days as I’ll be heading back home to Georgia later this week, to Coosa County (City of Rome) on Thursday. The North Georgia mountains are spectacular, especially in the fall, but I’ll take them anytime. I’ll also be heading to Arkansas and back to Texas (Dallas, Austin, and Houston), unfortunately this time in suit and tie and not mounted on my motorcycle in jeans and boots. Perhaps I’ll see you along the way.

“such as burning alive some 50 boys and attacking Christians over these past three to four years on Christmas and Easter” Isn’t it at the very least just a tad sexist? Boys burned alive and nobody cares…girls kidnapped and the words “sold as sex slaves” and hey…guess who’s suddenly paying attention? Hillary didn’t want this group to be designated as a terror org? Please, one good reason why not? What part of ‘burnt down a church’ did everyone not understand? But it gets worse: they wanted to protect these people? That’s the thing, they have the MSM on their side.… Read more »

As an FYI, I remember watching about dozens of Nigerian boys being burned alive by Boko Harem a year ago on NBC News and CNN. Do NBC and CNN not count as MSM in your book? I think we all have to remember that, just because we may not see or know about something happening doesn’t mean that something didn’t happen. I think we also need to remember that there is no single media outlet in existence that can cover every tragedy, every attack, every bad thing happening all over the world. It’s impossible. That’s why I don’t just restrict… Read more »

Fair enough. I don’t in fact remember seeing that. Doesn’t mean it didn’t happen. But that being the case it doesn’t speak well of the State Dept. or the White House does it? If it were so widely reported, the reasoning for keeping BH off of the terror list seems even more thin.

“Isn’t it at the very least just a tad sexist?

Nobody gave a darn about defending the Real Amerikins (sic) of ‘Bama until Addie Mae Collins, Cynthia Wesley, Carole Robertson and Denise McNair allegedly (sic) died in that supposed (sic) bombing to attack Dixie sovereignty, free-market capitalism, and the very foundation of the Bill of Rights.… Read more »

It was (and is) amazing…that the main media stream stories tend to follow many things already out there (Like the Boko Haram kidnapping…sometimes like the slowly awakening attention to human trafficking…stuff that has made its rounds with those who interact online). The list of question to ask about Benghazi is good too… Seems there are people with names and actions…till you get near the top…Then, orders/actions without bodies…without names appear. Noone up there knows anything. I remember how everything in Watergate (a president ordering bugging of the other political party’s rooms essentially) was screened and sifted…and people looked and dug… Read more »

“Why was Ambassador Chris Stevens in Benghazi on 9-11?”
It is certainly no secret in the DC intelligence community that Chris Stevens was in Benghazi to visit a boyfriend.

Bigger ? — “Why haven’t we heard from the 30 or so survivors of the terrorist attack?”

I hope Trey Gowdy gets to the bottom of this tragedy.

First off there is no US soldiers involved on the ground. They are there to gather intelligence and direct the Nigerian army’s search, not a combatants or law enforcement.

Second, and I hope that colonel west would agree, we have to take the fight to jihadists wherever and whenever they arise. Islam is like a global cancer, if you don’t treat it early it’s much harder to combat and your chances of surviving are much lower.

We have allowed the disease to spread to far and gain too much power already.

Then let’s start here in America! Stop this insane effort to paint islam as a peaceful religion. It is neither! It is a very militant ideology with a long term goal of complete world dominance. Educate the media of what the koran says. If Americans knew what the muslims believe and follow, they would stop “defending” them. Their goals are not hidden, but we’re too lazy to read their instruction book (the koran) I have and it lays it all out.!

I’m sending you a virtual hug.
There’s an economic summit going on in Nigeria now. I think Boko is taking advance of that to embarrass the president (with the silly name ). After seeing his Boko fool’s behavior on you tube , I think he’s been watching too many American rap videos. There’s a good possibility he’ll back off as so as the international troops show up.

She’s saying that the sudden organized, well after the fact, campaign to “care” seems to be politically motivated. Lt Col West reported on the event, and cared, well before that campaign got started.

Where was all this caring when Islamists were slaughtering non Islamic people in Sudan?

Islam is a death cult, and one that treats women as property.

You only scratched the surface of America’s imperialistic intents; it’s unusual for a politician, who are mostly driven by self-preservation, to speak truth to power. America has been conducting shadow activities since it became a world super power.

However, in this case, you’ll rather sink the ship (divulge truths), if you can’t captain the ship.

Isolate Islamists from foreign countries that practice Sharia. No trade, no aid, no immigration and no visitation. Leave them to their sinister deeds and don’t give them an inch to spread their hatred beyond their legal borders. Put radical, domestic Islamists on notice…assimilate or leave…no coddling, no excuses, no entitlements, do demands just one way flights back to the harsh desert lands from which their evil views bubbled to the gritty surface of their desert- hell centuries ago. It is the only sane way to deal with these inhumane, intolerant, uncooperative miscreants.

Brendan

Wrong!
Check your calendar,
The embassies were bombed on August 7th, 1998.
After an investigation and planning, the strikes in response, in Afghanistan and Sudan, were thirteen days later on August 20th, 1998.

It took less than two weeks for them to complete the investigation of the embassy bombings, select targets, plan the attacks, move ships into place, and launch the attacks.

…and you think he waited for the Lewinsky scandal in that time?

Concluding the investigation, picking targets, planning the attack and moving forces into place could have been done faster?
What makes you think it was a distraction from the Lewinsky affair?
Do you think Clinton planned the embassy bombings too?

Have you forgotten,,,,,,,Clinton decided he did NOT want bin laden when the Turks offered. Said just let him go,,,,so basically, Clinton is indirectly involved with the downing of the Twin Towers. He could have had bin laden, but like obamma just could not be bothered.

Why do you insist on twisting the facts to suit your narrative?
Clinton had CIA information long before the Lewinsky affair. He chose to ignore it. Why? only he knows for sure.
Do you think that He did? I know that he chose the moment in time to disract everyone from Lewinsky why else did he say “oh it wasn’t really sex”

Brendan

What CIA information are you talking about?
Are you changing the subject?
I’m talking about the August 20th strikes in Sudan and Afghanistan, which were in response to the Al Qaeda attacks on our embassies on August 7th.

You said that the August 20th strikes were meant as a distraction from Lewinsky.
Are you know trying to change the subject by bringing up another incident?

Of course you don’t care about the dates… because they prove you’re wrong and you don’t let facts get in the way of your beliefs. His retaliation for the attacks on our embassies was not just to attack the chemical plant in Sudan, but to launch 75 cruise missiles into Al Qaeda training camps in Afghanistan. Are you saying that was all a distraction from the Lewinsky affair? That’s what Republicans said back then. They said Al Qaeda was no threat and it was just a distraction from Lewinsky.

So again you are writing back with zero proof of your wacko conspiracy that Clinton had advance warning about the embassy bombings.

What is it that I need to prove to you?
The timeline of the attacks prove it was in response to the embassy bombings.
The argument that Clinton’s opponents made in 1998 was that Al Qaeda was not a threat and the attack against them was just a distraction. And you are still supporting that argument.

I do not need proof. Anyone with an ounce of intelligence understands that Clinton lies. Anyone with an ounce of intelligence knows that the government tells you only what they want you to know. Why is it that you cannot accept reality or what is common sense.

In Benghazi, 4 people died. That was also a tragedy. Don’t downplay it. It’s too bad that West is downplaying the Nigerian kidnapping. Ironic, because if he wants to blame Obama, he should blame Obama for letting it happen due to his bad foreign policy (if he wanted to blame Obama). As it stands, West apparently thinks it didn’t actually happen, which should be a credit to Obama’s foreign policy for having post-emptively prevented it.

Did my use of the word post-emotively blow your mind? Let me educated you on what “pre-” and “post-” mean. “Pre-” means before, and “post-” means after the fact. Since the girls were already kidnapped, but yet West said that the girls weren’t kidnapped, that would mean that if Obama’s actions prevented the girls from being kidnapped, then they would have had to have post-emptively prevented the attack (in contrast to Bush pre-emptively preventing Iraq from attacking us, in his argument for the war). Of course, its impossible to post-empt something, so West’s argument is complete nonsense.

The reason I, and many other counter-jihadists dislike the term “terrorism” is that it subtly places jihadis in a similar bracket to those who are fighting for purely political gains. You see, most terrorists will stop fighting once some particular limited political condition is met. Some “terrorists” could be considered “Freedom Fighters” if they are fighting for Enlightenment values against an oppressive regime. However, jihadis are never, ever fighting for freedom, They are fighting to install oppression.
