It’s Just Not Who We Are

 

By Jim Emerson,  staff writer

The Democrats’ talking point  at the Central Intelligence Agency’s enhanced interrogation of terrorists has been feigned shock. The program reportedly began in early 2002 and lasted until late 2007 so as to not indict Mullah Obama’s regime. The staff which wrote the report probably got some help from Hollywood writers to make it more dramatic.

These are the same al Qaeda terrorists who were part of the effort that killed 3000 Americans on Sept 11. But then what do Democrats care? They weren’t going to get their votes anyway. This was a naked act of political grandstanding by Sen. Feinstein and her unscrupulous Democrat minions in retaliation for the shellacking they took during the 2014 midterm elections. The California senator focused on conclusions before any formal investigation could determine the actual facts, leading to the sticky question of what DiFi knew and when she knew it.

Striking Back

CIA director John Brennan conducted the first ever televised news conference from CIA headquarters in which he defended a program that   stopped further attacks and saved American lives.

Former Vice President Dick Cheney saidsome of the controversial techniques used on militants had been previously tested and the interrogations produced results.”  Driven by a basic desire to protect this country, Cheney asked a reporter What are you prepared to do to get the truth against future attacks against the United States?”

Jose Rodriguez, former director of the National Clandestine Service of the CIA told Fox News “They rather kill. They rather kill. And somehow because they kill from a distance is more ethical than actually capturing and interrogating terrorists, which is actually a little messier and unpleasant. So it’s a distortion. It’s a distortion of what our values are…”

What the Democrats Do

Lacking the desire to conduct an interrogation of fellow America haters, Democrats take the cowards route by killing terrorists with drones, out of sight of CNN cameras. Collateral civilian deaths make bad optics for the cable news service. Often these targets are discovered thanks to intelligence gleaned by methods of enhanced interrogation. Remember one thing when a senior senator sheds crocodile tears before a camera—he and his colleagues were fully briefed on the program. And Obama was almost certainly briefed in detail. Yet never discussed by the media is the fact that Barack did nothing to stop it.

On the other hand, drone strikes and instructions that the NSA spy on Americans are easy to issue by Executive order from the golf course.

Fort Hood Shooting Victims Will AT LAST Receive Purple Hearts

By Jim Emerson, staff writer

Five years after the Fort Hood shootings, Congress is set to make the victims of the shooting eligible to receive Purple Hearts. This benefit and honor had previously been denied them by an Obama administration which insisted that the Islamic, terrorist act was actually workplace violence. The provision states that Purple Heart medals will be awarded to ‘members of the armed forces killed or wounded in domestic attacks inspired by foreign terrorist organizations.’ ”(3) The provision is included in the 2015 defense bill which is likely to pass the House this week prior to being considered by the Senate next week. The Muslim, White House resident has threatened to veto the bill on other subject. But it is the Fort Hood issue that is most disturbing to the former Madrasa Student.

It was House Republicans, working with the Senate Armed Services Committee, who introduced the provision into the defense authorization bill which would grant battlefield recognition to victims of terrorism on U.S. Soil. The bill makes any service member killed or wounded by terrorists eligible for both the medal and the benefits afforded to recipients. For the victims recuperating from injuries and loss of time costing them tens of thousands of dollars in medical bills, the bill would be a windfall, permitting them to receive priority care at VA Hospitals and waived medical copays.

House Republicans have included Purple Heart changes in annual defense budget bills each of the last five years, only to be blocked by Pentagon and Senate leaders. The push for the provision was led by Rep. John Carter, R-Texas who has never given up the fight for the Ft. Hood victims. The current provision to change the criteria was crafted with the Senate with input from the military.  Rep. Carter told the Military Times “This is finally going to be a recognition for their losses and injuries,” he said. “For many of these soldiers, that medal is going to mean the most. They feel like they were attacked by the enemy. It just happened at their base, instead of overseas.”

Five years is too damn long for these vets to wait for benefits and it’s about time they are getting the help they so dearly earned.

Counting on the Stupidity of the American People

by Jim Emerson,  staff writer

It’s been five months since the prisoner swap of five terrorists for Army SGT. Bowe Bergdahl. The Army has yet to release the Gen. Kenneth Dahl report of recommendations for possible disciplinary actions. The report was held up until after the midterm election in a vain attempt to protect Democrats and now the Pentagon claims it must review the report before making a decision. This is called a delaying action, waiting until the American public becomes thoroughly complacent and no longer cares about Bergdahl, the man who was called a deserter by his fellow soldiers.

On June 27, 2009, SGT Bowe Bergdahl deserted his post and left a note to his unit announcing “he was leaving to start a new life” (2) and that “he wanted to renounce his citizenship.” (3) By his own words SGT Bergdahl would be classified a deserter according to the Uniform Code of Military Justice. (4) Classifying Bergdahl as a prisoner of war represented a despicably dishonest act of political correctness on the part of the Obama Regime. He was in fact a hostage for profit. The Taliban is not known for keeping POWs; too expensive to care for so they kill them. But was Bergdahl a hostage-for-exchange for cash or for fellow jihadists? Currently playing the role of Innocent until proven guilty, SGT Bergdahl was medically treated and returned to limited duty during the investigation process pending any future administrative or judicial action.

Political Concerns

The delaying action is a purely political manoeuver designed to prevent embarrassment of the Obama Administration. If Bergdahl were publicly court martialed it would further tarnished the reputation of the community organizer, commander-in-chief. Any administrative action will be a political calculation to minimize any future damage to Democrats, i.e. Hillary.  Such a scheme would be considered pure cowardice within the military considering there are servicemen serving time in Fort Leavenworth for doing their job. For now the political hacks and perfumed princes are counting heavily on the well-known, short attention span of the American public and will probably announce their decision concerning Bergdahl during the holiday season.

The Obama Administration Does Make Ransom Payments

 

By Jim Emerson, staff writer

In a letter sent this month to Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel, House Armed Services Committee Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-Calif.) noted that Joint Special Operations Command delivered a ransom payment for the release of Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl. He wrote “Given the significance of this matter, as well as the fact that Pentagon officials have denied that a payment was even considered — and you also said you were unaware of any such attempt — I ask you to immediately inquire with JSOC to determine the specific order of events.”  (2)

The money was delivered to a phony “intermediary” who claimed to represent the Haqqanis terrorists holding Bergdahl. The Pentagon was duped in a deal that was most likely set up by a State Department flunky. All this effort for a man who, according to his fellow soldiers, walked away from his post and deserted.

Rep. Hunter also inquired if ransom payments are being considered for other captives of terrorist organizations. This contradicts America’s longstanding policy of refusing to pay ransom to terrorists.

The Pentagon denies

The Pentagon denied last Thursday that a ransom was paid for the release of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl.  Pentagon press Secretary Adm. John Kirby insists that “There was no ransom offered, there was no ransom paid – nor was there an attempt to do so that failed.” (4) He did admit that he wasn’t aware that any money changed hands in the effort to recover Bergdahl. However the Pentagon is trying to spin the payment was not a ransom but a payment for intelligence that lead to the release of Bergdahl.

Review

White House press secretary Josh Earnest said Mullah Obama has ordered a review of how the United States responds when citizens are taken hostage overseas. The review was in response to criticism for not doing enough to save citizens being held hostage by followers of Islam. Videos of beheadings have brought home the inaction of the administration in protecting or rescuing Americans in terrorist hands. The military action that was planned to recuse Americans being held by ISIS failed because the White House waited too long to take action on the intelligence of their location.

The Patriot Act prohibits the government from making any payment or assistance to terrorist organizations. Does this rule apply to the Obama Administration? In an act of desperation or for political consideration, never underestimate the willingness of a desperate, Marxist politician to flout policy or law.
