… Why are the Allied Nations reluctant ?? [#coalition]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,November 28th,2016

.. why should they be ?? …

.. they do not trust Obama . POTUS has not shown himself to be courageous , to be worthy of trust , of faith …

.. George W. Bush and other Presidents , they trusted , to one extent or another . Some they trusted more , some less …

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

.. this President is someone that they do not trust . POTUS has drawn a so – called ” red line , ” and has not backed it up . Other nations [friend and foe alike] have seen the result , and are acting accordingly …

.. they even see the ambivalence here in the U.S. among high officials in Obama ‘ s own administration . You would figure that since the Boss made the decision , the minions would march to the same tune . Not So …. other countries see that lack of resolve and discipline , and realize that Obama ‘ s own plan is a half – ass piece of crap ….

.. just imagine POTUS trying to get a AUMF or a war declaration through Congress …. good luck . I doubt that one will be brought up in this Congress , at least until the ” Lame Duck ” session ….

… Waaah !! [#childish White House]

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,July 31st,2014

.. a politician wants to have message discipline , yes .

.. but sometimes , you will have people speaking out ..

.. in this case , it is Congressman Henry Cuellar of Texas . Cuellar is a Democrat and a latino , and I believe a district that is extremely long along the border . you have one hell of a mess , and you expect him to stay silent , and parrot the party line . In Cuellar ‘ s case , to his credit , he stood up , and spoke out …

.. [h/t — theRightScoop]..
.. [link] to the news clip ..

..There are hundreds , maybe thousands of people coming accrss the us – Mexico border every day . Yet , the federal government does nothing . Nothing . Our border is not secure at all , you damn idiots ..

.. so , what does the ObamaCrap White House do ? take Cuellar to the politician ‘ s ” woodshed . ” He was ” admonished ” by the White House . So what does Cuellar do ? He pipes up again …

>> well done , Henry Cuellar …

… The Adult in the Room [#ObamaCraps , #Panetta] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,July 28th,2014

.. say what you will about Leon Panetta .

.. he is no wuss . Panetta served for years in the House of Representatives . He was Budget Chairman for several years . Then , after he left the House and went to the private sector , Wilhelm der Fibmeister [Bill Clinton] recruited him to become his Chief of Staff for a few years ….

.. [h/t — TruthRevolt]..
.. [link] to the commentary ..

.. Eventually , Panetta returned to the private sector before he was recruited to return to Washington . The ObamaCraps wanted and needed an old Washington hand to be ” an Adult in the Room . ” They did not just want ” Uncle Joe ” Biden around , given his malapropisms . So , they got Panetta , first at CIA , then at the Defense Department …

.. that makes this criticsm of His Lordship all the more stinging . Say what you will about the ObamaCraps ; I can say a lot . They have had very few of their people speaking ” out of school . ” Panetta ‘ s blast of the Bergdahl Affair has to hurt , and hurt a great deal …

TribLive reports on Wednesday’s comments made by the former Obama Administration official:
“I said, ‘Wait, I have an obligation under the law,’” Panetta said during a lunchtime address at the Hart Energy Developing Unconventionals DUG East conference at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center, Downtown. “If I send prisoners from Guantanamo, they have to guarantee they don’t go back to the battlefield. I had serious concerns.”

He said talks fell apart because the Taliban “asked for five top guys.” He did not say when during his 2011-13 tenure in the Pentagon that discussions took place.

“I just assumed it was never going to happen,” Panetta said.

.. [update] Panetta still needs to be heard from on many things . Especially Benghazi . There would not have been orders for any standdown of forces where people inmortal danger are concerned without consultation of the SecDef and / or the ChairJCS . Those two will  be able to tell you  a lot , and what they cannot say , or do  not know will tell you a lot , or will speak volumes …
