.. [link] to the news article ..

.. Some real serious whining . Which figures …

.. the Egyptians got a real up-to-date education about Islamic radicalism from Morsi & Co and the Muslim Brotherhood . They decided to take action to save their democracy , rather then have it subverted from within . They see the mess next door in Libya , and the vacumn from the ObamaCraps , and decided to step in and act …

… The Egyptians are not Kidding Around [#Libya]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,September 14th,2016

.. and even the U.S. is effectively powerless to stop it .

.. According to DebkaFiles , Egypt is massing for an operation to crush I.S.I.L. in the east of Libya [i.e. , Cyrenacia] . Currently , I.S.I.L. holds all but a fingertip of the region …

.. [link] to the intelligence file post …

.. What is Egypt ‘ s goal : Simple . Crush I.S.I.L. , and drive them out [militarily , as well as spiritually] from the region. It is not just Egypt that will be participating in the operation , no doubt . The Egyptians will likely be getting financial as well as military support from the Sunni Gulf states , as well as other aRAB nations . They hate I.SI.L. almost as much as Egypt does …

… Egypt and the ObamaCraps [#survival]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,August 31st,2016

.. the ObamaCraps can cause trouble , but only so much . Their own situation is much the same , financially , to Israel ‘ s …

.. Egypt receives multiple types of aid from the U.S. . Also , most of Congress [both parties , to be honest] are in Egypt corner . however , the Obamacraps are not . Which leaves them vulnerable to being subtly blackmailed by the ObamaCraps …

.. [h/t — Debka.com]..
.. [link] to the intelligence report ..

.. right now , it is a matter of survival . Russia is only of limited help . Russia has only a small navy . Their Air force and army are also of limited effect . They are more of a symbolic value to any country that wants them . The Gulf States would be of far larger assistance …

.. The Gulf States [Saudi Arabia and Kuwait , in particular] can replace U.S. aid , if needed . They may not want to , though . They recognize that Egypt is doing their dirty work , and is stabilizing their western frontier . It is in their interest to help Cairo …

… the Egyptians are Busy [#Obama]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,November 15th,2015

.. so , getting the Egyptians to join Obama ‘ s ” coalition ” will come at a price …

.. with many other members , that will not be a problem …. With Egypt , it will be . I do not blame them one damn bit . Given the way that His Lordship and the ObamaCraps have pissed all over Egypt and her citizens , Egypt is right to be reluctant to join any coalition that is led by Obama …

.. The proof is in the ” pudding . ” His Lordship has a lot to do to prove himself . So , he needs to get off his butt and do it …

.. [h/t — HotAir.com]..
.. [link] to the blog news …

.. Egypt has to clean up an Allied mess that is Libya . There is no way in hell if they can help it that they are going to allow a jihadi – run regime in Tripoli , or potentially even a fracture or breakup of Libya . Ghaddafi was bad , but the jihadis are far worse . And the Allies are leaving it to Egypt to clean up the mess ..

.. Egypt will come out of this with benefits , though …. like , discounted oil from a new and friendly regime in Tripoli …

… The Stonewall Cracks …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,April 4th,2014

.. and by a little more than you might think …

.. so , what is this all about ?? …

.. it was having the former Deputy Director of Central Intelligence [Micheal Morrell] on the hot seat …. but not in front of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee …

.. he was in front of the House Intelligence Committee … and that makes a very big difference ..

.. Morrell pretty much admitted that he lied , openly and brazenly , in front of the committee … gee , I wonder why ? It is because the Eric Holder – led Department of InJustice is so politically abused by the ObamaCraps that no senior level ObamaCrap will be held responsible for his or her actions …. no matter how outrageous the act , or how brazen …

.. Morrell was corralled by the GOP members into admitting that he was the responsible party for playing around with the ” talking points . ” Worse yet , he co – ordinated on them with the ObamaCrap White House . Ouch !

.. there are more steps to come , but at least , this truth is out  , and yes , it matters (contrary to Hillary Rodham Clinton) … you might wonder why ??

.. it is not just that 4 people died . That is the abundantly obvious . They and their survivors are owed an answer about everything that happened …. and they are owed the truth . The truth . The whole truth , and nothing but the truth ! …

.. it is also the survivors . They were left for dead , and nothing was done to rescue them . Only their own intrubidity and skill and guts helped to keep the death toll at four . It could have been a great deal higher …

… this joker was captured in Africa . He is a terrorist . He belongs in front of a military tribunal . One place that he does not belong is …

High-profile terror suspect taken to N.Y. to face trial

    Photo - FILE - This file Image from the FBI website shows Al Qaeda leader Abu Anas al-Libi. Al-Libi, who was captured in an Oct. 5, 2013, raid and held aboard a U.S. warship, is now in the United States.

(AP Photo/FBI, File)  FILE – This file Image from the FBI website shows Al Qaeda leader Abu Anas al-Libi. Al-Libi, who…

The Obama administration Monday on transferred an alleged top al Qaeda figure captured by U.S. special forces to New York to face charges in federal court. The move is likely to revive debate about whether suspected terrorists should be tried in civilian or military courts.

.. Abu Anas al-Libi, a suspect in the 1998 bombings of U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania that killed 224 civilians, was captured by the U.S. Army Delta Force in Tripoli, Libya on Oct. 5. He was then whisked onto a Navy ship in the in the Mediterranean Sea where he was questioned by U.S. intelligence officials.

.. U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara, the chief federal prosecutor for Manhattan, said the military handed al-Libi to U.S. civilian law enforcement over the weekend and he was brought directly to the New York area. He is expected to appear before a judge on Tuesday.

.. LEC again — he is the definition of a terrorist ,folks . He belongs in Guantanamo Bay , Cuba , not New York City …

… Nice Going , POTUS , You Waited too Long …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,June 14th,2013

.. I am not convinced that the Obama administration has a plan for intervening in Syria, which apparently crossed President Barack Obama’s so-called red line by using the lethal nerve agent sarin against as many as 150 of its own people. Do not be

surprised if it is a great deal thousands more than that . Everything has changed . And because we did not intervene early in ‘11 and ‘12 al-Qaida has penetrated the opposition .

.. I am also not sure that whether the Obama administration plans to see the U.S. intervention in Syria through to the fall of Assad . What we have right now is a decision which on the humanitarian level and moral level if it is fine , but it is late . It is certainly not well prepared. Unlike the situation in Libya, he said , the Assad regime is part of an axis that includes Iran, Iraq, and Hezbollah.

.. The ObamaCraps ‘ decision is a political act . I believe that it has been done with no strategic planning or thought . It was not done as part of a well – thought – out plan . What seems to be happening is a political decision in front of the international community , in front of the Syrian opposition and people that we are doing something . I fail to see the planning for the long – term results of today’s decision. So we are forced to support the principle , but at the same time question the plan . In simple english , what is the plan ?

.. It is my belief that the ObamaCraps are far from ready to confront the Iranians . Until they are , no one , and I repeat , no one will take them seriously .

… You Have to be Kidding Me … (She got a Promotion ???)

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,May 30th,2013

You have got to be kidding me , She gets a promotion ???

… from the Daily Caller (Vince Coglianese)

Obama promotes Benghazi talking points editor to assistant secretary of state

The woman responsible for completely removing references to terrorism from the Benghazi

talking points has been nominated by President Obama to become an assistant secretary

of state.

Victoria Nuland — the State Department spokeswoman who famously altered the talking

points regarding the Sept. 11, 2012 attack — will become assistant secretary of state

for European and Eurasian affairs if the nomination clears the Senate.

It’s a toxic nomination for the president to put forward, particularly as congressional

Republicans hammer the administration for failures in readiness and response to the

attacks in Benghazi, Libya.

Nuland is a central character in those criticisms, having expressed “serious concerns”

about any mention of terrorism.

Four Americans died in the terror attack, including U.S. Ambassador to Libya

Christopher Stevens.

.. considering the monkeyshines that she was involved in , Victoria Nuland deserves to

be fired , NOW . A promotion ? That is waaaay beyond outrageous ! .

… the ObamaCraps do not like the Hot Seat …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,October 11th,2012

ABC correspondent Jake Tapper during a prime t...

Jake Tapper

… it is getting to be abundantly obvious that the Obama Administration does not like being on the ” hot seat . ” A big part of being in political office is being accountable for one ‘ s actions . These days , that is being increasingly hard to do. Today ‘ s White House Press Briefing is a case in point …

… besides it being the first full scale Press Briefing in a couple of weeks …

… ABC ‘ s chief White House correspondent , Jake Tapper , had the floor , and he went on the attack  …

{info , Breitbart Media , Big Government}

TAPPER: Lieutenant Colonel Wood and Eric Nordstrom, the former regional security officer, have both suggested that there were efforts from the U.S. embassy in Libya to have more security, and the State Department — State Department officials wouldn’t let it happen. Why? Why didn’t the State Department listen to these men on the ground in Libya who wanted there to be more security?

CARNEY: Jake, as I said, there is no question that the result of what happened in Benghazi is not acceptable. Four Americans killed is not an acceptable situation, and that is why the president moved so quickly to ensure that an investigation was launched to bring the perpetrators to justice, the killers to justice, and a review was launched at the State Department to look at our security posture at the Bengali — I mean, not Bengali — at the Benghazi facility and elsewhere.

You know, those matters are under investigation. They are also being discussed in a public hearing on Capitol Hill today by the individuals and officials, both career and otherwise, who know the specifics of that. What I can tell you is what the president’s interest is in. He is very interested in bringing the perpetrators to justice and ensuring that we find out what happened, why it happened and taking steps to ensure that it never happens again.

TAPPER: Well, it’s been roughly a month. You have absolutely no idea why it happened? You don’t know why the State Department — (inaudible)?

CARNEY: Well, I think — I think, as we’re hearing on Capitol Hill today, we have learned a great deal as this investigation has progressed, and we have been very clear about what we have known at different stages of this process over the last several weeks and what we have yet to learn and the fact that at each stage, the investigation continues, and more facts may be developed that change our understanding of what happened. State Department officials are on Capitol Hill today being very clear about what we know now based on the several weeks of investigation that have taken place. They are also making clear that the investigation continues and that the Accountability Review Board that is looking into the issues of diplomatic security is continuing its work. You know, I’m not prepared to preview the results of an investigation that — or a review that have — that are not yet complete or to second-guess what the experts in the field are going to conclude.

Ouch !!
