Well at least NOW we can understand the Traitor In Chief’s Motives for suddenly going to war with Libya, Al Qaeda needed some help.
Mr al-Hasidi insisted his fighters "are patriots and good Muslims, not terrorists," but added that the "members of al-Qaeda are also good Muslims and are fighting against the invader".
His revelations came even as Idriss Deby Itno, Chad’s president, said al-Qaeda had managed to pillage military arsenals in the Libyan rebel zone and acquired arms, "including surface-to-air missiles, which were then smuggled into their sanctuaries".
And because just bombing the Libyan regular forces isn’t really enough for the Traitor In Chief’s handlers, we are also getting ready to arm the above named Al Qaeda Rebel “Freedom Fighters”. Republicans are bemoaning the fact that we didn’t go in earlier to help the Al Qaeda rebels. It is impossible to make this stuff up…but we are, 10 years after Al Qaeda killed 3,000 US Citizens actually considering arming them.
Western diplomatic sources have confirmed to Sky News that the US is considering the legality of arming the Libyan rebels.
One of the unintended consequences of United Nations‘ Resolution 1970 was to starve the rebels of the weapons they would need to take on Colonel Muammar Gaddafi.
It requires all UN members to "immediately take the necessary measures" to prevent the supply or sale of weapons to the Libyan government – with no exemption for anti-Gaddafi forces.
But Sky News now understands the US is looking at a legal framework to allow limited supplies of arms to the rebels, if they can prove they need them to defend themselves from attack.
Mark Kornblau, spokesman for US Ambassador Dr Susan Rice, confirmed it was a possibility.
And as I am finishing up this little blog post Trevor and Terresa go to press with more information on why Obama might be eager to go to war with Libya…the United Nations.
Why Did U.S. President Barack Obama order a military attack on Libya? Why did he seek the permission of the United Nations Security Council, but not that of the U.S. Congress – as he is constitutionally obliged to do?
ODINGA A third popular Obama "tip" has to do with Raila Odinga, the Kenyan prime minister and former opposition leader who claimed that Obama was a distant cousin.
They come from the same tribe but that really isnt important.
The reports surfaced after a political crisis in Kenya in which many international observers believed the vote was stolen from Odinga. As the international community rallied behind the opposition, Obama spoke to Odinga briefly on the telephone.
If Ben Smith is attempting to state that this is the only communication that Obama has had with Odinga then let me introduce Ben Smith to You Tube.
Gee Ben it looks like Odinga and The Lightworker are a bit closer than a mere phone call. Looks like they are standing right next to each other. Looks like "The Lightworker is campaigning for Odinga.
The media has ignored stories about the relationship between the two men because there’s no real evidence that one exists.
Well yea except for the video you see a few lines above this sentence, yea except for that, there is no evidence.
There is evidence that Obama toasted a PLO terrorist in the company of two domestic terrorists but the Los Angeles Times wont release the tape. So Ben your assertion that the press ignores stories because they dont exist rings a bit hollow. Or do you not consider the Los Angeles Times the press? If not welcome to the club.
But the story, which comes in many varieties, suggests that Obama campaigned for Odinga and funneled money to his campaign and that they’re close allies.
Well gee I am not a trained Elite Press Guy like Ben Smith so I cannot be sure but it sure likes that video depicts a campaign. And that sure looks like The Lightworker in that video is campaigning for Odinga.
Washington Times has a bit about this that maybe a professional like Ben Smith has not seen.
Mr. Odinga had the backing of Kenya’s Muslim community heading into the election. For months he denied any ties to Muslim leaders, but fell silent when Sheik Abdullahi Abdi, chairman of the National Muslim Leaders Forum, appeared on Kenya television displaying a memorandum of understanding signed on Aug. 29, 2007, by Mr. Odinga and the Muslim leader. Mr. Odinga then denied his denials.
Oops Wrong again Ben.
The details of the MOU were shocking. In return for Muslim backing, Mr. Odinga promised to impose a number of measures favored by Muslims if he were elected president. Among these were recognition of "Islam as the only true religion," Islamic leaders would have an "oversight role to monitor activities of ALL other religions [emphasis in original]," installation of Shariah courts in every jurisdiction, a ban on Christian preaching, replacement of the police commissioner who "allowed himself to be used by heathens and Zionists," adoption of a women’s dress code, and bans on alcohol and pork.
Gee that sounds like a bad idea maybe he wasnt serious?
This was not Mr. Odinga’s first brush with notoriety. Like his father, Jaramogi Oginga Odinga, the main opposition leader in the 1960s and 1970s, Raila Odinga is a Marxist He graduated from East Germany’s Magdeburg University in 1970 on a scholarship provided by the East German government. He named his oldest son after Fidel Castro.
Hey no wonder Obama and Odinga got along so royally! Obama loves hanging around with Marxists. Course if Odinga is a Marxist then he most likely uses his Christianity as a cover for his radicalism hey that’s just like Obama! From Obamas tome Dreams of My Father
"To avoid being mistaken for a sellout, I chose my friends carefully," the Democratic presidential candidate wrote in his memoir, "Dreams From My Father." "The more politically active black students. The foreign students. The Chicanos. The Marxist professors and structural feminists."
And Obamas grandfather was quite happy to introduce young Obama to Frank Davis ( just FRANK in Deams of ) who was a noted communist. Obama waxed poetically about dear old Frank.
Raila Odinga was implicated in the bloody coup attempt in 1982 against then-President Daniel Arap Moi, a close ally of the United States. Kenya has been one of the most stable democracies in Africa since the 1960s. The ethnic cleansing earlier this year was the worst violence in Kenya since that 1982 coup attempt.
Change you can believe in! Btw Odingas campaign was centered around CHANGE! Hey where have we heard that before?
Mr. Odinga spent eight years in prison. At the time, he denied guilt but later detailed he was a coup leader in his 2006 biography. Statue of limitations precluded further prosecution when the biography appeared. Initially, Mr. Odinga was not the favored opposition candidate to stand in the 2007 election against President Mwai Kibaki, who was seeking his second term. However, he received a tremendous boost when Sen. Barack Obama arrived in Kenya in August 2006 to campaign on his behalf. Mr. Obama denies that supporting Mr. Odinga was the intention of his trip, but his actions and local media reports tell otherwise.
Well gee Ben I guess your debunking of the Odinga claim was a bunch of that stuff The Lightworker is shoveling
This blog began because of my desire to have a space to catalog all of the links that I had found regarding the collaboration of Saddam and Al Qaeda. Start here. But don’t miss these posts either, here and here and lets not forget here. It is gratifying to know that I may have had some small effect on the debate.
CUIL was linked to by Drudge and touted as a challenger to Google. Nice to know I score high in their search algorithms.
This just about covers the story on that slimy piece of shit McClellan.
There are miserable creatures like you in every administration who don’t have the guts to speak up or quit if there are disagreements with the boss or colleagues. No, your type soaks up the benefits of power, revels in the limelight for years, then quits, and spurred on by greed, cashes in with a scathing critique.
In my nearly 36 years of public service I’ve known of a few like you. No doubt you will “clean up” as the liberal anti-Bush press will promote your belated concerns with wild enthusiasm. When the money starts rolling in you should donate it to a worthy cause, something like, “Biting The Hand That Fed Me.” Another thought is to weasel your way back into the White House if a Democrat is elected. That would provide a good set up for a second book deal in a few years.
I have no intention of reading your “exposé” because if all these awful things were happening, and perhaps some may have been, you should have spoken up publicly like a man, or quit your cushy, high profile job. That would have taken integrity and courage but then you would have had credibility and your complaints could have been aired objectively. You’re a hot ticket now but don’t you, deep down, feel like a total ingrate?
Wow Bob Dole is not only destroying McClellan he is showing other Republicans how to react to stacks of shit like McClellan. Not that any of them will learn a darn thing. After all, nearly 8 years after the biggest terror attack in history we still have not:
Identified the enemy. (wouldn’t want to hurt Mohammed’s feelings, after all a minor not very noteworthy branch of Islam is actually peaceful)
Fired the incompetents (CIA, FBI, DIA) who were supposed to be watching the gates of our country to prevent this sort of attack.
Fired the leakers inside of our supposedly secret services who seem to revel in releasing our secrets to the media.
Fired the folks who managed to deftly place President Bush in the presence of not 1 convicted terrorist but 3 within a week…at a service honoring the victims of fools like those he is actually praying with.
Laughed the folks who say that Islam is the religion of peace out of town.
No we have not done any of that and in fact we have done brilliant stuff like:
Under guidelines issued for all federal agencies by the Department of Homeland Security and based on “recommendations from American Muslims,” terms like “jihad” and “mujahedeen” are now off-limits in referring to Islamist extremist.

All of this stems from the lack of balls among the Republicans. The big watch word has been working with the otherside of the aisle as if the otherside of the aisle is interested in anything other than winning. Actually if the policies of the Democrats were not such a awful disaster I would admire their tenacity and singleminded focus on winning.
We haven’t had the focus since Ann Coulter outlined the correct strategy in the “War on Terror“…We should invade their countries, kill their leaders and convert them to Christianity. We weren’t punctilious about locating and punishing only Hitler and his top officers. We carpet-bombed German cities; we killed civilians. That’s war. And this is war.
Naturally all the “men” over at National Review fainted when the war was defined as it should be by a beautiful woman and Ann was promptly asked to leave.
Pelosi declares that the surge didn’t work! Instead she says that any progress made is due to the goodwill of the Iranians which is sort of interesting considering the US Government has been so coy about the Iranian involvement. Oh well even Democrats can be right twice a day…or is that optimistic? Mind you she is right about the Iranian involvement…she is wrong about why the surge worked. Our country kicked ass. But we need to kick more ass and that ass is Persian.
Well, the purpose of the surge was to provide a secure space, a time for the political change to occur to accomplish the reconciliation. That didn’t happen. Whatever the military success, and progress that may have been made, the surge didn’t accomplish its goal. And some of the success of the surge is that the goodwill of the Iranians-they decided in Basra when the fighting would end, they negotiated that cessation of hostilities-the Iranians.

Some are wishing that the President rise up and smack this Democrat. Well gee, for what? For admitting what the President refuses to admit publicly, that we are at war with the Iranians? Hell I have been saying this since 241 Marines were blown apart by their proxies the Hezb’allah. The President and his team have been going to lengths to assure us such things as this bit from Tony Snow in a press conference when asked Does the president … believe that this is as much the United States’ war as it is Israel’s war?”, “Why would it be our war? I mean, it’s not on our territory. This is a war in which the United States — it’s not even a war. What you have are hostilities, at this point, between Israel and Hezbollah. I would not characterize it as a war.” Our war? Nah not enough Americans have died yet…we are waiting till they do! Tony Snow. Well okey dokey. Have the President talk to us about Iran and while he is at it have him discuss why he takes pictures with Terrorists?
You will notice in the rotation of my header photo the pictures of the Marines after the explosion. I have not forgotten even though it seems that every US Politician has. ACE and others are in an uproar…I think it is amusing. Democrats are such a funny breed of humans. Just let them talk.
Besides our President having ceded the high ground on the single worst terror attack in history seems uniquely unable to smack anyone around. Heck he even makes a habit of holding hands with the King of a country that everyone in the world understands funds most of the terror. But ignore me I am a bitter Southerner who thinks that killing your enemies works better than kissing them.
