Valerie Jarrett and Obama’s Syrian Decision

Posted by madjillmom on September 4, 2013

High dungeon and impassioned speech from Sec. of State John Kerry.

A Sequestered US Navy amassing ships near Syria at a great cost and at the command of the highest levels.

Defense Dept and State Department people told to not count on a relaxing Labor Day weekend.

Obama and some of his (political?) advisers take a walk around the White House lawn Friday evening. It is beautiful. There are butterflies flitting from bloom to bloom. Obama decides to make congress the fall guy and not take any action on his own. Kerry and Chuck Hagel are informed because they weren’t on the walk around the White House. Was Valerie Jarrett on the walk. She is Obama’s “balls”. She is the one who wouldn’t let us get bin Laden on two separate occasions. Leon Panetta and Hillary Clinton had to muscle Jarrett out-of-the-way in order to get Obama’s buy-in on the Navy Seal raid that killed UBL. Is she why Obama backed down? I wonder.

On Saturday, when we are all expecting at least a few missiles lobbed in Assad’s direction, Obama goes to play golf.

Navy Seal Writes Book about UBL Raid

Posted by madjillmom on August 31, 2012

The Administration is threatening a former Navy Seal who has written a book about the UBL raid.  The guy uses a pen name but has been outed and is now being threatened by Islamic extremists.  It is pretty amazing that the guys that were on the raid can’t tell the real story, but Obama’s closest advisers can leak it to the New York Times and Hollywood directors to help  punch up Obama’s macho credits.  I do not believe that the Navy Seal will give out classified information, but he is paying for his effort.  When will someone hold the President’s leakers responsible?  Not anytime soon. Eric Holder swept it under the rug and the non-independent council will slow crawl this investigation until it hardly matters.

Di Fi Offends Obama with Leak Assertion

Posted by madjillmom on July 24, 2012

Senator Diane Feinstein (CA Dem) came out with her assertion that it was probably the White House that leaked all critical details regarding the UBL raid and the Stuxnet mission as well as other items.  Remember when Obama said it was offensive for someone to think that his White House leaked such things.  Soon after this, Sen. Di Fi got a call from the White House to walk it back as quickly as possible.  Obama is still offended.  Di Fi is mad at Romney for quoting her.

Bin Laden Video

Posted by madjillmom on May 9, 2011

The Obama Administration has released the videos of UBL watching himself on TV.  I  wonder how it makes the survivors of 9/11 feel?  Can’t see him dead, but can see him admiring himself on TV.

Obama’s Golf and the UBL Raid

Posted by madjillmom on May 4, 2011

There are stories circulating on blogs about a dithering Obama unable to make the ultimate decision about going after UBL. Within these stories are the “he had to sleep on it” to “White House Coup by Panetta and Hillary”.  I really can’t say about these stories, but they are perking up on the right side of the internet.  Although I am skeptical about them, I have to ask myself why Obama would play golf on Sunday if he knew the raid was planned.  How could he risk being on the golf course if things went wrong?

Bin Laden Death Pictures

Posted by madjillmom on May 3, 2011

Lots and lots of talk about whether the White House should put out the pictures of a dead Usama Bin Laden.  I have no doubt that it was indeed him.  And I am sure he is dead.  Put out the picture for those who don’t believe and want verification.  I will certainly take a look, but not to verify.

If Muslims are offended by it, so be it.  They lost the high ground when they dragged the bodies of American soldiers through Somalia.  They lost the high ground when they hung the bodies of American contractors off a bridge in Fallujah, Iraq.  They lost the argument when they chopped off Danny Pearl’s head on video tape.  Don’t desecrate the body, but don’t be fooled into thinking that not showing the dead man wins us any friends.  Islamic terrorists worldwide will not drop their arms next week because we don’t publish them.

Publishing the pictures might serve as a reminder what happens to you when you plot and fund a terrorist attack that kills almost 3000 Americans.

Three man on the street interviews in Pakistan showed that 2 out of three sympathized with Bin Laden.  I guess these people thought it was ok to do stuff to Americans, but will use this as an excuse to hate us all the more.

Al Jazeera and the UBL Compound

Posted by madjillmom on May 2, 2011

Ever so often during today’s coverage of the killing of UBL, there are films shown of the fires at the UBL compound.  In some, there is one large fire in front, and in others there are several spots of fire along the length of the compound.  Where did these pictures come from?  Were they from the retreating force or were they from Al Jazeera.  If it was Al Jazeera, how did they get there so fast?

The explanation of the fire is that the Navy Seals blew up the downed helicopter after escorting the women and children to the edge of the property.  The whole operation was about 40 minutes, so it seems quick for news footage of the fire in the compound.  Perhaps Al Jazeera knew exactly where Obama was.

Foreign Aid with Strings Attached

Posted by madjillmom on May 2, 2011

Pakistan is complaining about the raid that killed UBL.  They feel it was a was a violation of their sovereignty.  OK, fair point.  I feel so sorry for them.  While they were out cashing the check from the American taxpayers, we went in and conducted a military raid that offed UBL.

You know how you get those checks in the mail, but if you deposit them there is some writing on the back of the check that starts a service or a contract so the money isn’t really free money.  That is what we need to do with foreign aid.  Slip a few paragraphs onto the check that tells the recipient country that if they harbor muslim jihadists or terrorists and they accept the aid, the US reserves the right to swoop in and do things like this.

Explain this to Pakistan so they understand that the BS they have been handing us for years is no longer acceptable.  In fact, explain there will be no more funds with strings attached until about twenty military and ISI guys are turned over to the US for aiding UBL while he lived and laughed in Pakistan for these many years.

DNA Analysis of Bin Laden

Posted by madjillmom on May 2, 2011

Reuters reports that the DNA was a 100% match to his relatives.  How did they test in the Arabian Ocean?  How fast can a DNA test be done and doesn’t there have to be really sophisticated equipment available to test so quickly?  Does the USS Carl Vincent have such equipment and does it carry DNA of close relatives of UBL?  Perhaps this is possible, but I really am doubtful.  Does anyone know anything about this?

We don’t have to be privy to all that was done, but things like this seem improbable.  I have no doubt that it was UBL, only that the DNA analysis was not done in this time frame.

Congratulations President Obama

Posted by madjillmom on May 2, 2011

President Obama certainly does deserve credit for killing Bin Laden.  So does Pres. Bush because it turns out that the courier names being tracked came from Guantanamo interrogations 4 years ago. Obama only gave credit to his administration using a time line of last August.

Navy Seals and CIA deserve so much credit for bravery and executing the mission.

But this is not over.  The terrorists will strive hard to retaliate.  The alerts have been raised for travel for all Americans anywhere. Our oldest son will be deployed to Afghanistan this month.  I cannot help but think this elevates the danger.  Another of our sons will be commissioned next May.  Our middle son will be traveling abroad this summer.

There will be plenty of calls to declare victory and end the war in Afghanistan.  The Dems will want to cut the military to balance the budget.  I can’t help but feel that Leon Panetta’s main job will be making the military weaker.  I guess this will gore my ox.
