Leaked Obama Afghan Strategy Revealed; Sets Stage for surrender to Terrorists

What looks to be bi-partisan at first glance, Obama’s leaked plans for agreement to send 34,000 more troops to General McChrystal, is in reality, political window dressing.

It comes with triggers (“off ramps”) that will automatically end the US involvement in prevention of the Taliban and Al Qaeda from retaking Afghanistan and making it their base of operation for their Islamic War of World Wide Terror on all Infidels… specifically, their Islamic War on the United States and her allies, Great Britain, France, and Israel.

In reports provided to McClatchy from US Officials from either the White House or the Pentagon or both, Obama has apparently crafted his own personal exit strategy in order to dodge personal responsibility for a US surrender in Afghanistan.

Further, US Officials said the Obama announcement of the Afghan Decision is scheduled for December 1, 2009, but was made some time ago. This begs the question… what political advantage was it to Obama to delay announcement of the Afghan War Decision? Did it have anything to do with ObamaCare support by Blue Dog Democrats in the House and the Senate? If so what is the worth of a US Soldier’s life when life and death decisions of troops in the field hinge on passing Domestic Policy Legislation?

From McClatchy:

The U.S. officials all spoke on condition of anonymity because they weren’t authorized to discuss the issue publicly and because, one official said, the White House is incensed by leaks on its Afghanistan policy that didn’t originate in the White House.

additionally…

The administration’s plan contains “off-ramps,” points starting next June at which Obama could decide to continue the flow of troops, halt the deployments and adopt a more limited strategy or “begin looking very quickly at exiting” the country, depending on political and military progress, one defense official said.

“We have to start showing progress within six months on the political side or military side or that’s it,” the U.S. defense official said.

and it goes on to say…

The administration’s protracted deliberations have escalated into open warfare between McChrystal and his supporters and advocates of a more limited strategy led by Biden and White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel that often played out in dueling leaks to news organizations.

It is clear, I believe, that Obama wants to have his cake and to also eat it at the same time.

He does not want to fight a war on terror as he promised the Majority of Americans to get himself elected… and he does not want to take responsibility for surrender either.

Thus, he has constructed himself ‘OFF RAMPS’ to place the crux of ending the US Fight against Al Qaeda on a document created for him by others…

Obama, We the People HIRED YOU to make the call yourself, and to take responsibility for YOUR Decisions …and regardless of what kind of slight of hand mumbo jumbo BS you come up with for appeasing the Radical Leftists, of which they consider you a member, You Will Be the President Who Surrendered To Al Qaeda.. Bank on it Pal!

No wonder your Job Approval Rating hit a new and all time low today…

    I predicted we would soon see a breakthrough to -15 in the Obama Job approval Index… there was resistance at -14, but now that that bottom has been broken, I predict we will see a steady decline running towards the -20 mark.

    Obama is doing this to himself… there is no George Bush to Blame… but Sarah Palin will get credit for some of his slippage… and she deserves it.

    Then add on top of that, he wants to as a war tax to “we the people”. Your not about what’s right, Mr. Obutthole, your about politics.

  7. LisaInTX says:

    I think our foreign policy needs an overall.
    Personally, I want all our troops pulled out of those countries and brought home. Not in defeat, but because no matter what we do, we are NOT gonna keep them from killing each other. Let them kill each other and then let God sort them out!

    All we have done there, though most was to help the people we are told, is cause even more hatred of us for our involvement. This war has become another Vietnam in my eyes. We could win it easily, but at what cost?

    Our soldiers are there honorably, but I can not say the same for those giving the orders from the government.
    We should be strong and united on our OWN home front, secure our borders. Ex; any one messing with our ships, poof, they be dealt with quickly.
    The USA can not POLICE the world and it is unconstitutional for us to even try. The government is abusing their power of control over our military IMO.

  8. samiam60 says:

    Well stated Lisa and as much as I hate to admit it, I do agree with you.

    Those morons over there have been fighting each other for over 4,0000 years already. Let do what they do best, Kill each other.

    If they decide to continue attacks against us any where in the World, well then, we have the Air Power to deal a deadly blow each and every time. Use It!

  9. LisaInTX says:

    The War On Terror can only be won by eradicating Islam. Are folks REALLY that eager to kill so many people? I know I’m not. But if faced with it on our home soil, I would have no problem “Labeling” those that need to be watched, nor defending our country with extreme prejudice should the call come up.
    Islam has become the new boogy man and YES, IMO…they pose a GREAT THREAT to freedom loving people.
    The stages of Islam to Jihad, makes this religion a real threat world wide.
    We have them here in our country and we have yet to see their power once activated. I would rather have our troops HOME to defend us here, than following any UN treaty made by those that don’t give a shit about us or our way of life.

    Sunstein presents multiple new measures he argues can be used to stop the spread of “rumors.”

    He contends “freedom usually works, but in some contexts, it is an incomplete corrective.”

    Sunstein proposes the imposition of a “chilling effect” on “damaging rumors” – or the use of strong “corrective” measures to deter future rumormongers.

    For websites, Sunstein suggests a “right to notice and take down” in which “those who run websites would be obliged to take down falsehoods upon notice.”

    Sunstein also argues for the “right to demand a retraction after a clear demonstration that a statement is both false and damaging.” But he does not explain which agency would determine whether any statement is false and damaging.

    Sunstein further pushes for “deterrence” through making libel lawsuits easier to bring.

    Over 150 Orthodox, Catholic and evangelical Christian leaders have signed the Manhattan Declaration, a pledge in defense of life, religious liberty and traditional marriage, a line in the sand of the culture war warning that Christians will resort to civil disobedience if necessary rather than retreat from these three moral principles.

    “The Manhattan Declaration is a wake-up call – a call to conscience – for the church,” writes Chuck Colson, founder of Prison Fellowship Ministries and co-author of the declaration. “It is also crystal-clear message to civil authorities that we will not, under any circumstances, stand idly by as our religious freedom comes under assault.”

    I agree. I can feel it coming.

    Here is another thing. How ODD that 2-3 years ago, military recruiters were knocking on doors begging for enlistments and new recruits. My son was SCORNED and looked down on by his “friends” for daring to join the Army.
    Just on Fox News, they just ran a story that enlistments are UP all over the nation in ALL branches.
    Now besides a jobless nation that Obama has helped to create, we have a great number going ‘military”???? Hmmmmmm…..smells ODD to me?

    This came to me in an email and thought I could not have said it better myself:

    Letter from one ‘Angry Woman’

    I don’t know who wrote it but they should have signed it. Some powerful words. This woman should run for president.

    Written by a housewife from New Jersey and sounds like it! This is one ticked off lady.

    ‘Are we fighting a war on terror or aren’t we? Was it or was it not started by Islamic people who brought it to our shores on September 11, 2001?

    Were people from all over the world, mostly Americans, not brutally murdered that day, in downtown Manhattan , across the Potomac from our nation’s capitol and in a field in Pennsylvania ?

    Did nearly three thousand men, women and children die a horrible, burning or crushing death that day, or didn’t they?

    And I’m supposed to care that a copy of the Koran was ‘desecrated’ when an overworked American soldier kicked it or got it wet?….Well, I don’t. I don’t care at all.

    I’ll start caring when Osama bin Laden turns himself in and repents for incinerating all those innocent people on 9/11.

    I’ll care about the Koran when the fanatics in the Middle East start caring about the Holy Bible, the mere possession of which is a crime in Saudi Arabia

    I’ll care when these thugs tell the world they are sorry for chopping off Nick Berg’s head while Berg screamed through his gurgling slashed throat..

    I’ll care when the cowardly so-called ‘insurgents’ in Iraq come out and fight like men instead of disrespecting their own religion by hiding in mosques.

    I’ll care when the mindless zealots who blow themselves up in search of nirvana care about the innocent children within range of their suicide …

    I’ll care when the American media stops pretending that their First Amendment liberties are somehow derived from international law instead of the United States Constitution’s Bill of Rights.

    In the meantime, when I hear a story about a brave Marine roughing up an Iraqi terrorist to obtain information, know this: I don’t care.

    When I see a fuzzy pho to of a pile of naked Iraqi prisoners who have been humiliated in what amounts to a college-hazing incident, rest assured: I don’t care..

    When I see a wounded terrorist get shot in the head when he is told not to move because he might be booby-trapped, you can take it to the bank: I don’t care.

    When I hear that a prisoner, who was issued a Koran and a prayer mat, and fed ‘special’ food that is paid for by my tax dollars, is complaining that his holy book is being ‘mishandled,’ you can absolutely believe in your heart of hearts: I don’t care.

    And oh, by the way, I’ve noticed that sometimes it’s spelled ‘Koran’ and other times ‘Quran.’ Well, Jimmy Crack Corn and-you guessed it-I don’t care!!

    If you agree with this view point, pass this on to all your E-mail friends. Sooner or later, it’ll get to the people responsible for this ridiculous behavior!

    If you don’t agree, then by all means hit the delete button. Should you choose the latter, then please don’t complain when more atrocities committed by radical Muslims happen here in our great Country! And may I add:

    ‘Some people spend an entire lifetime wondering if they made a difference in the world. But, the Marines don’t have that problem’ — Ronald Reagan

    I have another quote that I would like to add AND…….I hope you forward all this.

    ‘If we ever forget that we’re One Nation Under God, then we will be a nation gone under’ Also by.. Ronald Reagan

    One last thought for the day:

    In case we find ourselves starting to believe all the Anti-American sentiment and negativity, we should remember England ‘s Prime Minister Tony Blair’s words during a recent interview. When asked by one of his Parliament members why he believes so much in America , he said: ‘A simple way to take measure of a country is to look at how many want in.. And how many want out.’

    Only two defining forces have ever offered to die for you:
    1 Jesus Christ
    2 The American G. I.

    One died for your soul, the other for your freedom.

    YOU MIGHT WANT TO PASS THIS ON,

    AS MANY SEEM TO FORGET BOTH OF THEM.

    From Boston Herald, Fort Bragg turns out for Sarah Palin:

    FORT BRAGG, N.C. – Thousands of fans greeted Sarah Palin on her book-signing tour at this military base in a campaign-like gathering that tested military rules involving politicians.

    The military bars politicians from using bases for campaigning, so Palin didn’t give a speech and simply thanked soldiers individually. The former GOP vice-presidential candidate was allowed to hold the event as a private citizen, a Fort Bragg spokesman said.

    Army officials initially feared the book-signing might turn political and negative comments would be directed at President Obama. They barred media from attending but later relented. Many who attended voiced their opposition to the commander in chief.

    From Associated Press:

    Sarah Palin’s book tour hits NC’s Fort Bragg
    By MIKE BAKER (AP)

    FORT BRAGG, N.C. — Sarah Palin brought her book-signing tour to North Carolina’s Fort Bragg on Monday as thousands greeted the former Republican vice presidential candidate in a campaign-like gathering that tested military rules involving politicians.

    The Department of Defense typically prohibits politicians from using installations as a platform, so Palin didn’t give a speech and simply thanked soldiers individually. She was allowed to hold the event as a private citizen who was not campaigning, a Fort Bragg spokesman said.

    Army officials initially feared the book signing might turn political and negative comments would be directed at President Barack Obama, so they barred media from attending. The Army later relented and allowed coverage, and many people who attended did voice their opposition to the commander in chief.

    Palin’s tour bus parked nearby, splashed with her photo, encouraged donations to her political action committee, while supporters made clear that she should run for president.

    Palin’s father, who greeted visitors as his daughter signed copies of the book, said in an interview that Obama’s handling of the military was “scary.”

    “I see a decline in our might,” Chuck Heath said. “People used to be afraid of us and respect us, (but) they’re not afraid of us and don’t respect us anymore.”

    […]

    Later in Birmingham, Ala., hundreds of fans packed the Colonial Brookwood Village Mall at Homewood and chanted Palin’s name for her book signing. A crowd estimated by police at about 1,800 lined up beginning Saturday night for a chance to get one of the 1,000 wristbands needed to meet Palin.

    Hundreds of Palin supporters also arrived early at Fort Bragg, and one woman spent nearly 24 hours in line. Officials estimated that some 4,000 turned out. More than 500 had to be turned away as the three-hour signing ended.

    From the Charlotte Observer, Matters of faith, politics on table as Palin visits Graham:

    Sarah Palin, the hottest name in the Republican Party, took a detour from her book-signing tour Sunday to dine with Billy Graham at his mountaintop home in Montreat.

    “He’s followed her career and likes her strong stand on faith,” said son Franklin Graham, who was present for the 2 1/2-hour get-together. “Daddy feels God was using her to wake America up.”

    The former Alaska governor and 2008 GOP vice presidential candidate told Billy Graham about how she came to faith in God as a girl in Bible camp.

    She quizzed him on the presidents he’s known and wanted his take on what the Bible says about Israel, Iran and Iraq, Franklin Graham reported.

    […]

    Billy Graham is no longer a regular visitor to the White House and his travels are now room to room, not country to country.

    But a private meeting with the Charlotte-born evangelist – still one of the country’s most admired figures – remains high on the to-do lists of politicians from both parties.

    Palin, who will sign copies of “Going Rogue,” her memoir, today at Fort Bragg, brought several family members with her to the Graham homestead: her mother, her father, a maternal aunt and daughter Piper and son Trig.

    Free Republic reports from Fayetteville Observer: Cheers, Whistles and a Big Crowd Greet Sarah Palin at Fort Bragg:

    Sarah Palin arrived at Fort Bragg this morning to a media mob and cheers from more than 1,000 people lined up for her book-signing event.

    About a dozen people had been waiting since Sunday.

    Palin’s bus pulled up to the North Post Exchange just after 11:15 a.m. and the former Alaska governor and vice-presidential candidate emerged in a black suit to cheers and whistles.

    As she passed the collected media, Palin was asked what she was thankful for this holiday season.

    “I’m thankful for the U.S. military, the best in the world,” she said.

    The line to see Palin extended far out the door of the post exchange into the raw, drizzly weather. People stood or sat in folding chairs. Some held umbrellas. Many were reading copies of the former Alaska governor’s recently released memoir “Going Rogue.” One woman clutched three copies of the book.

    THE YOUNG TURN AGAINST OBAMACARE

    By Dick Morris And Eileen McGann
    11.24.2009

    Previously, we reported to you that our national polling showed that the under-30 voters were the strongest supporters of the Obama healthcare initiative. While seniors opposed it by almost 2-to-1 and voters 30-64 opposed it by five- to 10-point margins, the under-30 voters backed his program by 58-30.

    So with the funds you have donated, we ran television advertisments and an Internet campaign aimed at young people focused in Arkansas, North Dakota and Maine. The results are incredible! Now under-30 voters are the strongest opponents of the plan. In the table below, we show you the vote on the Obama plan broken down by age. (We aggregated all three states so we would have enough interviews to make the age subsets statistically meaningful.)

    Support/Oppose Obama plan, combined data for Arkansas, North Dakota and Maine

    Age / Support & Oppose Obama Plan

    Under 30 = 25 Support & 65 Oppose

    30-49 = 28 Support & 60 Oppose

    50-64 = 41 Support & 50 Oppose

    Over 65 = 32 Support & 55 Oppose

    The polling had predicted that the young would swing sharply and dramatically against the Obama program once they got the key information about it, but we are blown away by these results.

    These data are from polls the League of American Voters commissioned John Zogby to conduct. Commenting on the results, John said, “These results among 18- to 29-year-olds are striking. It puts in jeopardy the whole theory of the new Democratic majority, because young people are essential to that base.”

    Boy, is he ever correct!

    At the same time that we are seeing this big shift, the national data on ObamaCare continues to show slippage. Rasmussen shows support down to 38 percent (56 percent opposed) from 45-52 right after the House vote.

    Will the Senate listen to public opinion? Damn right they will! At this rate, they would have to face the loss of their entire political base to pass this legislation. Politicians don’t work that way! These early procedural votes don’t mean much. As George W. Bush said in the war on terror, “We have to be right all the time. The enemy just has to get it right once.” Now it is the opposite. We just need to win one vote to kill the plan. They need to win them all. And at this rate, the plan is in deep, deep trouble.

    PLEASE keep the money flowing! We want to run ads along this line in all the swing states (Arkansas, Louisiana, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota, Maine, Indiana, Virginia, Connecticut). To do so for the three weeks before the Senate vote will cost us $1.3 million.

    Navy SEALs Face Assault Charges for Capturing Most-Wanted Terrorist

  66. samiam60 says:

    Navy SEALs have secretly captured one of the most wanted terrorists in Iraq — the alleged mastermind of the murder and mutilation of four Blackwater USA security guards in Fallujah in 2004. And three of the SEALs who captured him are now facing criminal charges, sources told FoxNews.com.

    The three, all members of the Navy’s elite commando unit, have refused non-judicial punishment — called an admiral’s mast — and have requested a trial by court-martial.

    Ahmed Hashim Abed, whom the military code-named “Objective Amber,” told investigators he was punched by his captors — and he had the bloody lip to prove it.

    Now, instead of being lauded for bringing to justice a high-value target, three of the SEAL commandos, all enlisted, face assault charges and have retained lawyers.

    Matthew McCabe, a Special Operations Petty Officer Second Class (SO-2), is facing three charges: dereliction of performance of duty for willfully failing to safeguard a detainee, making a false official statement, and assault.

    Petty Officer Jonathan Keefe, SO-2, is facing charges of dereliction of performance of duty and making a false official statement.

    Petty Officer Julio Huertas, SO-1, faces those same charges and an additional charge of impediment of an investigation.

    The three SEALs will be arraigned separately on Dec. 7. Another three SEALs — two officers and an enlisted sailor — have been identified by investigators as witnesses but have not been charged.

    FoxNews.com obtained the official handwritten statement from one of the three witnesses given on Sept. 3, hours after Abed was captured and still being held at the SEAL base at Camp Baharia. He was later taken to a cell in the U.S.-operated Green Zone in Baghdad.

    The SEAL told investigators he had showered after the mission, gone to the kitchen and then decided to look in on the detainee.

    “I gave the detainee a glance over and then left,” the SEAL wrote. “I did not notice anything wrong with the detainee and he appeared in good health.”

    Lt. Col. Holly Silkman, spokeswoman for the special operations component of U.S. Central Command, confirmed Tuesday to FoxNews.com that three SEALs have been charged in connection with the capture of a detainee. She said their court martial is scheduled for January.

    United States Central Command declined to discuss the detainee, but a legal source told FoxNews.com that the detainee was turned over to Iraqi authorities, to whom he made the abuse complaints. He was then returned to American custody. The SEAL leader reported the charge up the chain of command, and an investigation ensued.

    The source said intelligence briefings provided to the SEALs stated that “Objective Amber” planned the 2004 Fallujah ambush, and “they had been tracking this guy for some time.”

    The Fallujah atrocity came to symbolize the brutality of the enemy in Iraq and the degree to which a homegrown insurgency was extending its grip over Iraq.

    The four Blackwater agents were transporting supplies for a catering company when they were ambushed and killed by gunfire and grenades. Insurgents burned the bodies and dragged them through the city. They hanged two of the bodies on a bridge over the Euphrates River for the world press to photograph.

    Intelligence sources identified Abed as the ringleader, but he had evaded capture until September.

    The military is sensitive to charges of detainee abuse highlighted in the Abu Ghraib prison scandal. The Navy charged four SEALs with abuse in 2004 in connection with detainee treatment.

    From ‘Rogue’ Politician to Best-Selling Author: Defining Sarah Palin’s ‘It Factor’

    Palin’s fashion-meets-politics persona defines a new generation of women in politics, experts say.

  74. samiam60 says:

    While Sarah Palin is hardly the first politician to release a memoir, the enthusiastic response to the former Alaska governor’s “Going Rogue: An American Life” boasts a story like no other.

    Since the announcement of its impending release months ago, numbers for “Going Rogue” have been remarkable. Harper Collins initially announced a first printing of 1.5 million copies, half a million more than the first printing of Hillary Clinton’s long-anticipated memoir, “Living History.” But by last Friday, just three days after its release, the publisher announced it would increase those numbers by 1 million.

    By Tuesday morning, the Associated Press, which had assigned a whopping 11 reporters to fact-check the book, announced that it had sold 700,000 copies in its first week alone, trailing the first-week sales of Bill Clinton’s “My Life” by just 200,000 units. And if sales weren’t telling enough, Palin’s appearance on “Oprah” in support of “Rogue” earned the talk-show giant her highest ratings in two years.

    Sarah Palin’s ‘Going Rogue’ Outsells Hillary Clinton’s Memoir in First Week

    Indeed, in just a week alone, it seems Palin’s already massive celebrity has soared to even greater heights. At just 44 years old, with less than two years in the national political spotlight, the 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee is the politician of whom America cannot seem to get enough.

    So what is it about Palin — a less-than-one-term former governor from Alaska — that makes her such a star?

    “Sarah Palin is a celebrity by virtue of her meteoric rise to fame,” says Fraser Seitel, a public relations professor and managing partner of the communications firm Emerald Partners. “Celebrity sells in this country, and she has the ‘it factor’ that makes people watch her. She is controversial, and controversy sells. And she is a firebrand; she has many qualities that make her incredibly appealing.”

    But controversy and strong convictions aren’t all that set her apart, says image expert Marian Salzman, president of Euro RSCG Worldwide Public Relations. “Sarah Palin’s packaging is sublime. Her appearance has had an extraordinary effect on her popularity.

    “She is attractive enough to be appealing to both men and women, and she looks likable, even if you disagree with her politics,” Salzman says. “She is in great shape, her hair looks great, her clothes are beautiful. All of these things make her the modern embodiment of the American dream.”

    Salzman says Palin has been a political maverick for her fusion of femininity and politics, taking a divergent path from that of pantsuited politicians like Nancy Pelosi and Hillary Clinton. Palin’s wardrobe has been full of high heels, tailored skirts, beehive hairstyles and black patent leather boots. According to Salzman, that fashion-meets-politics persona is the definition of a new generation of women in the public eye.

    “Hillary Clinton was from a different era,” Salzman said. “Palin’s generation didn’t have any glass ceilings to break through. It was an era of equality and of sexual confidence. Women did not need to be apologetic for being attractive and that is what Palin embodies.

    “Why should she put herself in a plain navy pantsuit? She is [an] American woman who takes pride in keeping herself in shape and presenting herself as someone interested in looking good, but never pushing the envelope into the risque. And in that sense, she is the poster girl of that new generation. It doesn’t take away from what women of Hillary’s generation did, they had to make the transition for the Palins. But that won’t be the look that younger people will want to see.”

    But while Palin will always be a draw due to her appearance, Republican strategist Steve Castleton says she has to further hone her arguments if she wants to be a potent political force.

    “What gets her in the door is that she is eye candy,” Castleton said. “She is using her appearance to get shows and notoriety, something Hillary didn’t have the option to do. Hillary couldn’t be on the cover of a magazine in running shorts, but Hillary did have her politics and her comments to stand on, which is what Palin will need if she is going to go on and be successful as a politician.

    “People will go see her because she is gorgeous, but they will only vote for her if she has substance. Is she the kind of leader to whom America can turn in the wake of tragedies and wars, or will she be spending too much time on her hair and her outfit? She will need to show that she is prepared and knowledgeable and has a strong team behind her.”

    And though her closest advisers deny she’s eyeing the 2012 presidential campaign, many Palin watchers predict another run for office in her future.

    If her book tour stops are any indicator of political aspirations, Palin seems to have her eye on pursuing the Republican presidential nomination. According to the Washington Post, the tour includes 31 stops in 25 states in mostly GOP-friendly areas. Of those 31 county stops, only 11 were carried by Obama.

    Still, even if she’s sticking to friendly territory, Palin’s national star power should not be underestimated, says Politics Daily writer Matt Lewis.

    “To her critics who discount her potential,” he says, “it’s important to keep in mind: You can teach someone foreign policy. You can’t teach them the charisma and star power that comes naturally to Sarah Palin.”

    Washington Post:

    President Sarah Palin. To many pundits and late-night comedians, this sounds like a punch line, and to many die-hard Democrats it sounds like a reason to leave the country.

    Yet while the conventional wisdom has it that Palin is too badly damaged to make a serious run in 2012 — and I agree that her success is not probable — it is definitely a possibility that Palin could be elected president of the United States.
