Will Any Bastards Do?

An interesting news day yesterday.

First, Hillary Clinton steps forward and takes responsibility for the security failures in Libya that contributed to the deaths of our Ambassador and three other Americans by terrorists. I am not calling for three cheers for Hillary for accepting responsibility. In my opinion, she only did so because there was no escaping her responsibility as Secretary of State. The State Department is the only  entity responsible for embassy security. So, is Hillary being the one adult in this administration? Is she being a good Democrat soldier and taking one for the team? Has Hillary given up her aspirations to run for the presidency in 2016? It is common knowledge that there is no love lost by the Clintons for Barack Obama. I am going to engage in a little conjecture here and say that the lack of security in Egypt and Libya was politically driven. And, that political policy was driven by the White House. The nitty-gritty decisions on embassy security are not made by the Secretary of State.  They are made by professionals in security within the State Department. I believe those professionals were thwarted from putting proper security in those two countries because the word had come down from the White House that the President wanted to keep a low American security profile to assuage the sensitive feelings of his new Muslim friends now in power in Egypt and Libya. So, I expect in the coming days that either Hillary herself will let the President’s policies be known or there will be some leaks from those professionals that will expose the President¡s failed policies.

The other news story that had the talking heads abuzz was another of those unofficial official leaks this White House has become famous for making. Fox News reported on the AP story here.

The White House has put special operations strike forces on standby and moved drones into the skies above Africa, ready to strike militant targets from Libya to Mali — if investigators can find the Al Qaeda-linked group responsible for the death of the U.S. ambassador and three other Americans in Libya.


Details on the administration’s position and on its search for a possible target were provided by three current and one former administration official, as well as an analyst who was approached by the White House for help. All four spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the high-level debates publicly.

The dilemma shows the tension of the White House’s need to demonstrate it is responding forcefully to Al Qaeda, balanced against its long-term plans to develop relationships and trust with local governments and build a permanent U.S. counterterrorist network in the region.

I think we can all agree that we want to get the bastards that killed four brave Americans, right? I know I do. However, I would like to know that we are going to get the RIGHT bastards and not just ANY bastards. In my post on the 28 September, I quoted a Yahoo news story and commented:

When gunmen struck the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, on Sept. 11 of this year, the response from American officials was almost simultaneous: They immediately set about collecting information about the attackers, some of whom were quickly identified as foreigners, and tracing links from them to known extremist groups, a knowledgeable source has told Yahoo News.

Interesting, isn’t it? So, don’t be surprised if in plenty of time to influence the elections, that there will be some drone attacks in Libya and people will be killed and The Leader From Behind will announce that we have killed the leaders of those that attacked our embassy and killed our people. He will explain that the video cover story was necessary so as not to let the bad guys know what we knew. America will then know that The Leader From Behind was on top of things all along….

You might ask: “But Jim, do you really believe a president of Theses United States would order the death of innocent Libyans for political gain?”  Unfortunately, with this president, I do believe he is capable of such a thing. Barack Obama has zero credibility with ne and most conservatives. That is not our fault. It is his fault. Barack Obama is a pathological liar. He could tell me the gawd’s honest truth on something and I would have to be skeptical of him.

If or when Obama unleashes his drones and announces that the perpetrators of the attack on our embassy in Libya have been brought to justice, because Barack Obama is who he is, we can not know if he is telling us the truth. By the very words of this unofficial official leak, we know the decision to send in the drones will not be a national security decision. It will be a political decision. If our intelligence people know who the attackers are and know where they are, the attackers would be killed first and then the American people would be told about it. They would npt announce their plans in advance so the killers could go into hiding. I do belive, in the case of Barack Obama, getting the RIGHT bastards is not important. For Barack Obama, ANY bastards will do.

Well, now you know what I’m thinking. What are your thoughts?

  2. I’m not convinced that Hillary ever had aspirations to run in 2016. Getting an appointment as a Supreme Court justice — that’s what I think she’s had her eye on. Just my two cents.

  3. Sorry to comment so many times. I keep getting interrupted.

    Anyway, I think that Obama will announce that the bastards have been killed — whether they have or not. Didn’t he send something into Libya yesterday? Drones and/or special forces, I think.

  4. All the way around, sadly, the Administration has handled the Libyan killings badly. The irreparable damage is done. A drone strike can’t repair it.

    Regarding Hillary…
    It has nothing to do with Libya, but Hillary has said for a long time that she is permanently out of politics the end on this term. She will return to work full-time for CGI (Clinton Global Initiative). CGI is a good and decent family foundation that has secured $70 billion (Yes, BILLION) for projects all over the world.

    The next Clinton we see in politics will be named Chelsea.

    1. I think both Hillary and Bill are dutiful to their party. Both have helped Obama when both had plenty of personal reasons not to.

      Hillary falling on the sword for Obama isn’t as altruistic as you’d think if you buy into the idea she is leaving politics for good in a few months. Personally, I think Hillary is glad to be leaving for good. She has nothing to prove.

      The Clintons have vision beyond 2012.

      The next Clinton to run for President will be Chelsea.

  5. “You might ask: “But Jim, do you really believe a president of Theses United States would order the death of innocent Libyans for political gain?”

    Of course he would! Great piece, Jim!

    And Hillary is more of a man that Obama

  6. Dear Jim, you probably know by now that I would not be one of those that will ask the question “But Jim, do you really believe a president of Theses United States would order the death of innocent Libyans for political gain?”
    You and I both know the answer to that.

    As for Hillary Clinton “taking responsibility”, the answer is in my blog, and surprisingly nowhere else, not even in Fox.

  7. Any bastard will do Jim. I had a good chuckle on that one. I am going to go one step beyond the twillight zone. Stevens and the CIA were perhaps involved in more than we should know..perhaps moving stuff into Syria. Perhaps all of the massive weapons and guns being purchased by our agencies..including the social security purchase, are finding their way elsewhere. Thus any and all bastards necessary can be eliminated.

    1. We may be reading the same sources, Bunker. The story is tha Stevens met with the Turkish consulate that evening to talk about arms being funneled from Libya to Syria throught the Turkish border. Putin was not happy about that.

  8. I completely agree with you, Jim. To round out my concerns, let me say that any nation capable of using armed drones against villages of goat herders would also not hesitate to use them against citizens here at home. A North Dakota judicial ruling recently validated my concerns; now all that remains is actually firing on Americans by these remotely piloted vehicles. These are the evolved rules that apply to “everyone else.”

    Hillary Clinton, on the other hand, is a member of the new highbrow elite. She can step up to the microphone as much as she wants to claim “responsibility,” but she knows no US official is criminally liable for such malfeasance as illustrated at Benghazi. Clinton has not placed herself in jeopardy in the farthest sense.

    1. I am a fraid, my friend, that things have already gone a bridge to far. I don’t know if there is a civil way back.

      I don’t tthink we have heard the last of Hillary on the Libya fiasco. She is not likely to go down alone.

  9. I agree with your analysis 100% Jim. There is no doubt in my mind that the order to keep a low profile in the area so that we could show we are winning came directly from Barack Obama. So why is Hillary doing this? There has to be some deal cut. As for the drone strikes; I don’t doubt they will come before the election so Obama can show he got justice for the murders, but how will we know if he really got those responsible or just made someone who wasn’t involved pay for the attacks? We will never know.

    1. Isn’t it a terrible thing to have to say about our president? We can not trust him to tell us the truth. I am praying that enough Americans have learned their lesson and we won’t habe to put up him much longer. He cares more about himself than he does America.
