Obama  Incompetence in Mid-East Rivals Carter’s in Iran

Townhall.com ^ | September 20, 2012 | Bob  Barr

 

Despite repeated, self-serving claims by Obama officials that  the Administration did everything it could to head off and then respond  appropriately to the violence against American facilities in Libya and Egypt  last week, their blunders in policy, intelligence and security illustrates an  incompetence every bit as profound as exhibited by the administration of Jimmy  Carter in Iran 33 years ago. It appears nothing has been learned in more than  three decades; despite significant gains in technology available to the U.S.  government during those intervening years.

In 1979, the Carter Administration precipitously abandoned the  Shah of Iran, Washington’s long-time and loyal ally in Tehran, once widespread  dissatisfaction with his regime surfaced. In the melee that ensued, and which  accompanied the return from exile of the radical Ayatollah Khomeini, student  groups led a successful assault on the huge American Embassy compound.  Washington, believing the insurgent forces could be placated by throwing the  Shah under the bus, failed completely to heed warning signs in the build-up to  the storming of the diplomatic compound, and was caught flat-footed.

Once in control of the American facility, the radicals gained  access to innumerable classified documents and microfilm cards (which standard  operating procedures dictated were supposed to have been destroyed earlier)  containing sensitive intelligence information. Additionally, because other  security protocols had not been followed, certain individuals taken hostage were  identified to the radicals as intelligence personnel, and subjected to “harsh  interrogation techniques” during their long months in captivity.

As a direct result of the fall of the embassy in Tehran, the  U.S. lost access to invaluable technological facilities, including some in  northern Iran that provided unique electronic listening posts for then-Soviet  missile ranges. Perhaps even more disastrous, was the compromising of the  identities of numerous cooperating agents in Iran and elsewhere in the region;  many of whom were subsequently tracked down and killed. The loss of such  resources continues to be felt to this day.

Fast forwarding to last year’s mis-named “Arab Spring,” the  Obama Administration found itself in much the same situation as did its  predecessor in 1979 -- and appears to have engaged in just as serious a  misperception.

Apparently believing that popular uprisings against unpopular  regimes in the Middle East, including Egypt and Libya, signaled an embrace of  Jeffersonian Democracy in the Arab World, Washington again let down its guard – this time with immediate tragic results.

In the broadest sense, policy makers in Washington fail to  understand the deep-seated religious zeal through which many Middle Easterners – including some of those educated in the West -- view their society and the  world. They also appear not to comprehend that allegiances among many Arabs are  based not so much on notions of political solidarity, profession, or the many  other indices of “identity” familiar to us in western countries, but rather on  tribal customs and background. The nature and use of violence – while well-known  to virtually every culture in the world -- occupies a peculiar place in Arab  culture that must first be understood and then forcefully and consistently  defended against.

In a more focused sense, the Obama Administration seems to  have made almost every mistake capable of being made, on the ground in Libya.  Everything went wrong – from the failure to properly evaluate and disseminate  relevant intelligence data (not “actionable” but “relevant” intelligence) to the  physical aspects of knowing where your people are and maintaining communication  with them during an emergency. With all the technology available to the United  States of America, in Libya or anywhere else on the face of the earth, imagine “losing” an Ambassador inside a building controlled by our own  government.

In fact, imagine an American ambassador placing himself – or  allowing his staff to place him -- in such a situation in an area in which  violence is clearly predicted and should have been expected, and then being  taken to a “safe” house which location and layout was already known to  well-armed assailants.

It is not difficult to chronicle numerous other mistakes made  by our government in assessing the prelude to the violence last week in Cairo  and Benghazi, and then elsewhere. Why, for example, do we rely still in such  countries as these on local security personnel to provide the “first line” of  defense? Why do we not anticipate violence ensuing from actions almost identical  to earlier episodes that precipitated violence – does Washington really believe  Arab culture has changed in the months since an **** “preacher” in Florida  threatened to stage a Quran burning? Why apparently did we not equip a “safe  house” in an area known to harbor violent extremists, with the basic back-up  generators and individual gas-mask protection devices now required in virtually  every major federal government building in our country?

The list goes on and on. And all this Administration does is  send its emissaries out to blame a film maker in California; hoping that by  avoiding accountability it will avoid defeat at the polls. And as Washington  dithers, families mourn and the world burns.

Congress to probe security flaws for Libya diplomats

By Sharyl Attkisson

10/5/2012

 

(CBS News) WASHINGTON - CBS News has learned that congressional investigators have issued a subpoena to a former top security official at the US mission in Libya. The official is Lt. Col. Andy Wood, a Utah National Guard Army Green Beret who headed up a Special Forces "Site Security Team" in Libya.

 

 

Lt. Col. Andy Wood led a 16-member Special Forces site security team responsible for protecting U.S. personnel in Libya.

The subpoena compels Lt. Col. Wood to appear at a House Oversight Committee hearing next week that will examine security decisions leading up to the Sept. 11 Muslim extremist terror assault on the U.S. compound at Benghazi. U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three of his colleagues were killed in the attack.

Lt. Col. Wood has told CBS News and congressional investigators that his 16-member team and a six-member State Department elite force called a Mobile Security Deployment team left Libya in August, just one month before the Benghazi assault. Wood says that's despite the fact that US officials in Libya wanted security increased, not decreased.

 

Wood says he met daily with Stevens and that security was a constant challenge. There were 13 threats or attacks on western diplomats and officials in Libya in the six months leading up to the September 11 attack.

 

A senior State Department official told CBS News that half of the 13 incidents before September 11 were fairly minor or routine in nature, and that the Benghazi attack was so lethal and overwhelming, that a diplomatic post would not be able to repel it.

 

Wood, whose team arrived in February, says he and fellow security officials were very worried about the chaos on the ground. He says they tried to communicate the danger to State Department officials in Washington, D.C., but that the officials denied requests to enhance security. 

 

"We tried to illustrate...to show them how dangerous and how volatile and just unpredictable that whole environment was over there. So to decrease security in the face of that really is... it's just unbelievable," Wood said.

 

The State Department official says there was a "constant conversation" between security details in Libya and officials in Washington D.C.

 

Sources critical of what they view as a security drawdown say three Mobile Security Deployment teams left Libya between February and August in addition to the 16-member Site Security Team on loan from the military. That's 34 highly-trained security personnel moved out over a six month period.

 

One State Department source told CBS News the security teams weren't "pulled," that their mission was simply over.

 

Also scheduled to appear at next week's hearing are Libya's former U.S. Regional Security Officer Eric Nordstrom and State Department official Charlene Lamb.

QUE OPINAN DE LOS MEXICANOS ASESINADOS CON ARMAS DE US?

NO MUERTOS EN WATERGATE... PERO   CIENTOS EN FAST & FURIOUS

Perspective: No Body Count from   Watergate but Hundreds Dead from Fast and Furious

 

6 Oct 2012

Watergate is arguably the most sinister crime a Democrat  can  find to present to the American people when trying to silence a  Republican. But  it pales in comparison to the lies, illegal gun sales,  weapons trafficking, and  wholesale slaughter of innocents we've seen as a  result of Fast and  Furious.

Think about it -- Watergate was a break-in, the goal of  which  was **noallow** some "dirt" on Democrats to help Richard Nixon  during his  re-election bid in 1972. Nixon, the man vilified for it, didn't  even know about  it until after the break-in had already happened, and his  crime was covering it  up once he learned of it.

He had to resign to avoid being impeached for covering up  a  break-in in which no one was physically harmed.

Now, jump to 2009 and the launchh of operation Fast and   Furious under President Barack Obama; 2,500 guns were sold to criminals or  to  straw purchasers who knowingly intended to pass the guns to  criminals.  Background checks for the purchasers were done away with and in  some cases, the  money to buy the guns was supplied at taxpayers'  expense.

Because of this, Rep. Paul Gosar (R-AZ) has relayed tales  of  individuals on food stamps coming into a gun store in the Phoenix area  with  brown bags full of money and purchasing hundreds of  guns.

The vast majority of these guns were then smuggled across  the  U.S./Mexico border while the ATF and DOJ looked the other way,  ostensibly hoping  the guns would be passed to Mexican cartel members so  the U.S. government could  make arrests.

For the record, we're still waiting on those   arrests.

Over a year after Fast and Furious began, Border Patrol  Agent  Brian Terry was gunned down by men armed with Fast and Furious  weapons on the  southwest border, and hundreds of Mexican citizens have  been killed with weapons  smuggled into Mexico during the  operation.

Moreover, early on in the operation (January 30, 2010), 14 teenagers at a birthday party near  Juarez  were massacred by men armed with Fast and Furious  weapons.

And at every turn in the road, as Congressman  Darrell  Issa (R-CA) and Senator Charles Grassley (R-IA) have tried to  investigate Fast  and Furious, there have been cover-ups, changes in  testimony, and withheld  evidence.

The bottom line -- Watergate was less than  child's  play compared to Fast and Furious.

Nixon lied but hundreds have   died under Obama and Eric Holder.

CONFIRMED: There Was No 'Protest'  of  Any Kind Outside the BenghaziConsulate

By Guy Benson 10/10/2012

 

The journos at ABC News treated this development as a   "bombshell" on World News Tonight, but for those of us who've  been  paying close attention, it's nothing of the sort.  CBS News, Fox  and McClatchy had ABC scooped by, oh, about three  weeks.  But better  late than never, I suppose.  The "news"  here is that the  administration is finally playing catch-up and confirming what  we knew  back when they were spinning a totally different fairy tale:

Try to ignore Diane Sawyer's shock at the "incredible"  not-new  revelations, and focus instead on Jonathan Karl's speculation at  the very end  about the timing of his, er, "leak."  He's  surely correct that the  administration is trying to get out in front of  the parade of awful we'll see  during Capitol Hill hearings about the  Benghazi massacre today, but that ship  has sailed.  For at least a  full week following the deadly raid, the Obama  administration told  Americans that it was sparked by a spontaneous protest over  a YouTube  video, that there was no forewarning of the attack, and (laughably)  that  on-the-ground security measures weren't insufficient.  These   assertions have all been systematically obliterated by the facts.   Here's  the latest actual newsworthy report coming out of   Libya:

Less than two months before the fatal attack on the U.S.   diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya, the State Department concluded that  the  risk of violence to diplomats and other Americans in Libya was high  and that the  weak U.S.-backed government in Tripoli could do little about  it. “The  risk of U.S. Mission personnel, private U.S. citizens and  businesspersons  encountering an isolating event as a result of militia or  political violence is  HIGH,” a State Department security  assessment from July 22  concludes.

So the administration knew that the risk of  violence  against our diplomats was "HIGH" a few months before the  assassinations, but  they still denied requests for increased  security -- and  actually pulled American security personnel out of the country, ignoring the  ambassador's pleas.  How was that  allowed to happen?  Well, we don't  know.  The White House  spokesman has all but stopped giving televised briefings, the Vice   President hasn't sat down for an interview in five months.  And The One is  busying  himself with hard-hitting appearances on The View   and Nickelodeon.  Is it any wonder that he  wasn't prepared for a  tough debate?  Two videos for you:  The first is  from the  Heritage Foundation, which I've linked previously, but it's worth  another  spin.  The second is American Crossroads reviewing the facts for   voters who are just tuning in.

Expect some fireworks about this on the Hill today,  then sharp  exchanges during the foreign policy debate.   Obama can try to run  from this scandal, but four Americans  are dead, and the buck stops in the Oval   Office.

Pitiful, pathetic III  Team  Obama only makes it worse

Manchester Union Leader ^ | October 13, 2012  |  Editorial

 

We have already written twice under the heading of the  Obama  administration’s pitiful and pathetic performances, first in its  response to  Sept. 11 attacks on U.S. foreign offices, one of which killed  four Americans;  and then the President’s debate, in which he repeatedly  lied about his  opponent’s tax policies. (The administration’s  mischaracterization of the  oft-quoted “independent study” of the Romney  proposal has been thoroughly  discredited, in part by the study’s own  authors.)

But nothing in those examples comes close to the  continued  attempts by Obama and company to mislead the American public  about the  circumstances leading up to and including the terrorist attack  that killed  Americans in Benghazi, Libya.

The written and taped record is so clear about what the   administration claimed, and then tried to walk back, about that attack  that  short of admitting it, Team Obama has apparently decided to just  double-down and  keep lying with a straight face. (Well, not even a totally  straight face, as the  cackling Joe Biden showed repeatedly in last  Thursday’s debate.)

In another era, this was called the Big Lie, and its   proponents firmly believed that if they told it often enough and loud enough,  it  would be believed.

For weeks, Team Obama stuck to the story that all  evidence  pointed to a shoddy anti-Muslim film as the source of a “spontaneous” street  protest that ended with our Ambassador Christopher  Stevens and others dead. Even  if one were to accept this incredible claim,  (the State Department says that was  not its conclusion), subsequent White  House claims that the President had never  suggested it was not a terrorist  attack are more preposterous.

Beyond making Obama look ridiculous and his sidekick Biden  the  fool, however, the real worry here is that this is apparently the  current  foreign policy of the United States: Ignore warnings of inadequate  security in a  hostile place; fail to be on guard for 9-11 anniversary  attacks; try to blame a  shoddy film for the resulting disaster; and then  lie and laugh about the whole  thing.

The election is about the economy, of course. But  it  also needs to be about American safety and defense. Barack Obama fails  on all  counts.

Poll: Race is Tied, But Most Think Obama Will Win

The presidential race remains a dead heat one week before Election Day but most Americans think President Barack Obama will defeat Mitt Romney, according to a Reuters/Ipsos daily tracking poll released on Tuesday.

Obama leads Romney among likely voters by 47 percent to 46 percent, a statistically insignificant margin, the online survey found. Neither candidate has held a clear lead since early October.
