A Tale of Two Leaks…
November 9th, 2012 10:12 am

Apparently the new Obama Doctrine on Top Secret information is that it’s not permissible to leak classified details to a company making video games about soldiers…

Seven members of a unit that killed Osama bin Laden got career-ending reprimands Thursday for spilling secrets to a video game developer, a Navy official said. The members of the elite SEAL Team 6 were charged with dereliction of duty for disclosure of classified materials and unauthorized use of unit equipment for two days of off-the-clock work earlier this year. The SEALS were helping the firm EA with its new first-person shooter “Medal of Honor: Warfighter,” which came out last month.

…but it’s perfectly permissible to leak national security secrets to filmmakers designed to support your re-election campaign.

…newly released documents confirm his suspicions that the CIA and the Defense Department jeopardized national security by cooperating too closely with filmmakers Kathryn Bigelow and Mark Boal in producing a movie on the raid that led to the death of the terrorist leader.

Tom Fitton is president of Judicial Watch, the organization that obtained the documents through a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit.

“The original investigation was tied to a Maureen Dowd column in The New York Times who said that the classified information was conveyed to help with the film designed to help boost Obama’s re-election chances,” Fitton explains.

Apparently bored with all the boring honoring victims mumbo jumbo and annoyed at having to waste time showing a moment of respect for the victims and heroes of the worst terror attack on American soil, Michelle Obama showed Sunday just how much contempt she has for America… a country she wasn’t proud of until her moving van found 1600 Pennsylvannia.

As police and firefighters fold the flag to the sound of marching bagpipers, a skeptical looking Mrs. Obama leans to her husband and appears to say, “all this just for a flag.” She then purses her lips, shakes her head rolls her eyes as Mr. Obama nods in agreement.

It’s nice to know that television news anchors are more up to date on current terror plots around the world than the man who heads the agency tasked with knowing everything before everyone.

U.S. Director of National Intelligence James Clapper drew a blank when ABC’s Diane Sawyer asked him about the arrests hours earlier of 12 men accused of plotting an al-Qaida-type attack in London. Give the guy a break… maybe going into makeup to get ready for a television interview was top priority instead.

The initial exchange with Sawyer occurs at the 3:56 mark.

“First of all, London. How serious is it? Any implication that it was coming here?” Sawyer asked at the start of an interview that also included chief counter-terrorism adviser John Brennan and Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano. Clapper, puzzled by Sawyer’s question, responded, “London?” and turned to Brennan for help responding to Sawyer’s questions about the arrests that had occurred several hours before the interview took place.

Later in the interview, Sawyer told Clapper that she was “a little surprised you didn’t know about London.” “Oh, I’m sorry, I didn’t,” Clapper replied.

Are you feeling safer, yet?

Here’s an exit question for you… do you think we’d be seeing the same silent reaction in the media (or on the Left - but I repeat myself) if the interviewee’s last name was Palin, instead?

UPDATE: From the same interview, Janet Napolitano wants to reassure Americans that the Department of Homeland Security is “working 364 days a year to fight terror

And I hope they’re focused on protecting all 58 states.

With all the controversy surrounding the TSA screening methods and general ineffectiveness, it’s probably time to remind folks that the 2001 law creating the TSA also included a provision whereby Airports can opt out of using TSA for screening in favor of private companies after 2 years:

‘‘§ 44920. Security screening opt-out program ‘‘(a) IN GENERAL.—On or after the last day of the 2-year period beginning on the date on which the Under Secretary transmits to Congress the certification required by section 110(c) of the Aviation and Transportation Security Act, an operator of an airport may submit to the Under Secretary an application to have the screening of passengers and property at the airport under section 44901 to be carried out by the screening personnel of a qualified private screening company under a contract entered into with the Under Secretary.

Contact your airport today and let them know you want them to opt out.

Ayers on Obama: We are Family Friends
November 14th, 2008 11:10 pm

Sarah Palin took a public beating in the MSM because she mentioned that Barack Obama was “palling around with terrorists”, while Barack Obama’s story on his relationship with Bil Ayers kept changing. Now, the unrepentant terrorist confirms Palin was right and Obama was lying.

In a new afterword to his 2001 book, Bill Ayers, former leader of the 1960s radical group Weather Underground, describes President-elect Barack Obama as a “family friend” and denies he wished his group had set off more bombs in the 1960s.

“We had served together on the board of a foundation, knew one another as neighbors and family friends, held an initial fund-raiser at my house, where I’d made a small donation to his earliest political campaign,” he writes.

On the business side, he worked with convict Tony Rezko. On the spiritual side, his mentor was America-hating racist Rev. Jeremiah Wright. And his family friend is a guy who led a group that bombed various locations in the U.S., killing innocent Americans.

It’s nice to know such a circle of influence exists around the next resident of the White House.

Saddam’s Terror Ties
March 24th, 2008 3:33 pm

I posted about this back in January, 2006 and again in June, 2006, and a new report is out that’s getting almost no attention in the media. The Wall Street Journal wonders why.

Five years on, few Iraq myths are as persistent as the notion that the Bush Administration invented a connection between Saddam Hussein and al Qaeda. Yet a new Pentagon report suggests that Iraq’s links to world-wide terror networks, including al Qaeda, were far more extensive than previously understood.

Just add this to the long list of links that includes the Clinton administration’s indictment of Osama Bin Laden that laid out his relationship with Iraq, and aside from Clinton’s own national coordinator of counterterrorism and computer security programs’ assessment, etc.

For 20 years, such “support” included using Fedayeen Saddam training camps to school terrorists, especially Palestinians but also non-Iraqis “directly associated” with al Qaeda, continuing up to the fall of Baghdad. Saddam also provided financial support and weapons, amounting to “a state-directed program of significant scale.” In July 2001, the regime began patronizing a terror cartel in Bahrain calling itself the Army of Muhammad, which, according to an Iraqi memo, “is under the wings of bin Laden.”

What 9/11 Means to Hillary…
October 9th, 2007 10:10 am

…more customers for Hillarycare!

And don’t expect to hear any outrage from Democrats over such shameless politicization of 9/11 when it’s one of their own doing it…

As Carol rightly points out:

Remember when the Democrats screamed bloody murder, like this time and that time, charging that Republicans were seeking to “politicize 9/11″?

Well, let’s see if we hear the same high-minded denunciation now that Hillary Clinton is using images of 9/11 in a political ad. It’s not likely — the only people, it seems, who are forbidden from using 9/11 images are those who do so to remind us that we’re actually in a war against Islamofascist terrorists who want to kill us.

Six Years Seems Like Yesterday…
September 11th, 2007 12:01 am

In case you’ve forgotten how this whole thing got started… here’s a reminder.

The voice you hear is Kevin Cosgrove. He was a VP for Aon Corporation. He was 46 years old. He left behind a wife and three young children.

May we never forget Kevin and the other 2,995 souls lost that fateful day.
