ISIS, Ebola, Obama, and You: WOOF Explains the President’s Agenda

Back in the day…

For centuries, the world’s civilized peoples thought of Isis as a goddess from Egyptian mythology, daughter of Geb, god of the Earth, and Nut, goddess of the sky. In Egyptological lore, she married her brother, Osiris, (that was trendy in ancient Egypt) and gave birth to Horus. She is described by the Egyptian Book of the Dead as “She who gives birth to heaven and earth, knows the orphan, knows the widow, seeks justice for the poor, and shelter for the weak.” Obviously, this doesn’t sound much like ISIS as currently constituted, besides which the contemporary band of rapscallions never had their own TV show on Saturday mornings whereas the goddess, gamely portrayed by actress JoAnna Cameron, fought evil in half-hour intervals every weekend between 1974 and 1976 on CBS. But now, Isis’ good name has fallen into disrepute!

Sadly, the "Archer" animated series may now have to rename their organizational nemesis! Fans may encounter difficulty boarding American air carriers in the t-shirt.

Sadly, the  animated TV series”Archer” may now have to rename the show’s organizational nemesis! Fans may encounter difficulty boarding American air carriers in the t-shirt.

As every school child now understands—and, in fact, as even our brilliant young president now seems to realize, today’s ISIS is a far cry from the benevolent mother goddess of antiquity. Rather, the name is now synonymous with a ragged cadre of messianic psychopaths bent on beheading, bludgeoning and massacring everyone in the known world whom they deem at odds with their febrile variety of Islam. And how did this happen?  Let us examine the origins and membership of this particularly insensate pack of killers whose numbers and malfeasances have lately multiplied so astonishingly that even the most utterly tuned-out chief executive in our national history has been forcibly familiarized with their deviltries.

ISIS—the early years…

ISIS founder Zarqawi looked fiercer in still photos because his gun didn't jam in them. Fortunately, you only need a knife to behead hostages--less chance of a malfunction!

ISIS founder Zarqawi looked fiercer in still photos because his gun didn’t jam so much in them. Fortunately, you only need a knife to behead hostages–less chance of embarrassment!

ISIS calls itself “The Islamic State,” but is widely known as ISIS except when it’s called  ISIL (sort of the Foggy-Bottom make-nice version) all of which is easier to say than Jama’at al-Tawhidwal wal-Jihad, which was its name when it formed in 1999. Nobody could remember that one, though, so it changed it to Tanzim Qaidat al-Jihad fi Bilad al-Rafidayn—but the same problem arose, so it settled for Al Qaida.  It became the Iraqi branch of that infamous franchise under the leadership of Abu Musab Al Zarqawi…remember that guy? He helped pioneer the craze of beheading infidels in videos, and also enjoyed being video-taped shooting his AK-47, except that when it jammed his henchmen had to clear the jam for him, which made him look wimpy. In 2006 two F-16s dropped 500 pounders on him, thus ending his tenure.

Syrian despot Bashar Assad, who likes to emphasize his tiny head by wearing big fat ties, possesses one redeeming characteristic--he's not ISIS.

Syrian despot Bashar Assad, who likes to emphasize his tiny head by wearing big fat ties, possesses one redeeming characteristic–he’s not ISIS.

As Al-Qaida in Iraq (AQI) the organization expanded its control of several key geographic areas, but ultimately proved too violent and fanatical for other Sunni groups who withdrew their support, leading to a temporary diminishment in the group’s influence. It managed to keep busy in Syria, however. Styling itself Al Qaida in Syria,  the group managed to simultaneously represent itself as the moderate rebellion against Bashar Al Assad’s oppressive dictatorship, and a liberating force of Islamic fundamentalists on the home front. Thus, it was primarily they whom President Obama sought to arm, train, and support back in April while insisting that Assad be deposed because he had crossed one of Our Beloved Leader’s uncrossable lines—we forget which one. Readers may recall that Obama accused Assad of using sarin gas in the spring of 2014, but at this remove it appears better than even money that ISIS committed these atrocities using chlorine gas—a less sophisticated compound. If you scan news reports from that period you will note that most of the testimony about the attacks also came from ISIS, who, for all the American media knew at that time, might as well have been the local Rotary.  ISIS also had the most to gain, whereas Assad had nothing to gain and much to lose by engaging in chemical warfare when he was winning anyway. And just for emphasis, here’s a recent news item:  On September 18th at least 14 members of the Islamic State (ISIS) died near Baghdad when a rocket they were loading with chlorine gas exploded inside a warehouse. Oops.

"So brothers, is it just me, or should we be wearing gas masks when we do this part?"

“So brothers, is it just me, or should we be wearing gas masks when we do this part?”

But even if ISIS is all thumbs with chemical weaponry, one must respect the sophisticated tradecraft it practices at the level of propaganda and psy-ops. In the wake of the April gassings, had congress not applied the brakes, President Obama would have enthusiastically committed American support to ISIS, who probably performed the chemical attacks, in order to depose Assad, who probably didn’t, based on testimony that he did, which came predominantly from ISIS, who very well may have. Still with us? Readers may also recall that John McCain was vociferously in support of arming Syrian rebels (before Obama wanted to) and famously posed for a group photo with Syrian resistance fighters, at least two of whom were subsequently identified as terrorists wanted in conjunction with kidnapping 11 Lebanese Shi’ite Muslims, and another one of whom appears to be the current leader of ISIS.. It is only now that it once again befits Obama’s purposes to call for an armed Syrian resistance that the Leftist Establishment Media have ceased to guffaw at McCain’s tomfoolery and devoted themselves, instead, to defending it, vide this item from the New York Times.

O, McCain, you've done it again!All things in moderation

That “moderate” Syrian forces exist and would appreciate help in deposing Assad or even confronting ISIS is reasonable enough to assert, but that American treasure and weaponry can be funneled and dispersed to such rare and inconspicuous cadres by an administration that lacks even the most rudimentary powers of international discernment seems highly improbable. Even if it could be done, which it can’t, the idea that moderates would retain power in the wake of an Assad collapse is laughable.  Obama, by the way, understands this fully.

What does she see in Bashar?

What does she see in Bashar?

It is probably fair to say the only silver lining in any of this, from Obama’s standpoint, is that he can renew his twisted efforts to fund “moderate rebel forces” in Syria—but the president’s enthusiasm for this tactic seems no less irrational than last April, and for some old and new reasons. First, Americans are slightly better educated regarding the Syrian situation. They always sensed that Assad was a villain, (even though he has a really pretty wife) but they have grown to suspect his opposition is even more dangerous and far more radical. Why replace a secular lizard with a fundamentalist snake? And then there’s an untimely recrudescence of good will, or a reasonable facsimile thereof, between our prospective allies and the folks we want them to shoot.

Cunning attempts to affiliate themselves with Churchill and Nixon by flashing the victory sign for naive Western photographers cannot conceal the ongoing cooperation between FSA forces and ISIS!

Yes, “moderate” Syrian rebels on several fronts just finished signing a non-aggression treaty with ISIS. That’s right. While liberal interference runners such as Olivia Nuzzi of the subversive Daily Beast claimed loudly that the truce was pure rumor, even proclaiming it debunked, Syrian experts like Patrick Poole, a respected national security reporter, unearthed definitive evidence of the truce’s reality along with frank confessions by FSA leaders that they work hand in hand with ISIS. So, our Beloved Leader (and Nobel Peace Prize recipient), now proposes to arm and finance the “good” Syrian insurgents and enjoin them to blow the bejabbers out of the “bad” Syrian insurgents with whom they just forged a truce. Really?  Well, no. Obama will of course proclaim in his inimitably clipped, detached singsong that we must assist the rebels because they are joining us in battling ISIS, but he knows perfectly well that’s balderdash. His purpose remains the same—he deems it essential to oust Assad for the same reasons he jerked the rug out from under Mubarak in Egypt and sent Hillary to cackle over Gaddafi’s bloody, swollen corpse in Libya—to ensure a tidal wave of Muslim extremism sweeping through Africa and the Middle East, unfettered by secular despots who maintain relations with the imperialist exploiters (otherwise known as us). In fact, readers with lengthy attention spans will recall that Mubarak was ousted so that Morsi and his bloodthirsty band of anti-Semites (the Muslim Brotherhood) could take over in Cairo.

Her Magnificence on CBS  cackling "We came, we saw, he died!" exhibits glee at Gaddafi's mutilation and Libya's plunge into Islamic radicalism.

Her Magnificence, Mrs. Clinton. on CBS cackling “We came, we saw, he died,” exhibits glee at Gaddafi’s mutilation and Libya’s plunge into Islamic radicalism.

Obama had a colossal hissy fit when Morsi’s own military deposed him, and it is worth citing here the opinion of one Middle Eastern expert, Jonathan Spyer, an academic who studies the Middle East for a living. Fresh back from reporting on the “moderate opposition” in Syria, Spyer insists the moderates Obama wishes to back are “really Muslim Brotherhood-types” who profess an Islamist ideology. Again, because this gets confusing if you’re not nuts, bear in mind that Obama fully understands this.

Congress unleashes American airpower--except Obama cancelled that pretty airplane (the F-22) and he cancelled that cool missile (The Tomahawk) so supplies are severely limited!

Congress unleashes American airpower–except Obama cancelled that pretty airplane (the F-22) and he cancelled that cool missile (The Tomahawk) so supplies are severely limited!

On September 18th congress supinely voted to allow the U.S. military to train and equip Syrian rebels to wage war against ISIS, despite the fact that these forces may also be ISIS unless they’re the Muslim Brotherhood, unless they’re not either one, in which case they will be bound by a truce with ISIS…and the problem with all such distinctions is that they cannot be seen from the air. Last week, an airstrike from the American-led coalition (otherwise known as the good guys) nearly blew up a command-and-control facility of the “Free Syrian Army,” Another strike killed a bunch of “FSA” stalwarts because their encampment is next door to an Al Qaeda base at which they intermingles socially.

ISIS, here and now.

If anyone doubted that ISIS was as a major threat to our national security, Obama’s interview with New Yorker editor David Remnick in January of 2012 should have been a giveaway. Remnick explained to the president that the Al Qaida flag was widely seen waving in Fallujah as well as in Syria, and noted the terrorist group did not appear to be “on the run” or “decimated” as Obama proclaimed repeatedly during his 2012 reelection campaign. The president’s reply combined glibness and inaccuracy in his characteristic fashion.  He told Remnick, “The analogy we use around here sometimes, and I think is accurate, is if a jayvee team puts on Lakers uniforms that doesn’t make them Kobe Bryant,” But ISIS doesn’t appear to read the New Yorker, and anyone who does might well have viewed the president’s response, given his demonstrated inability to wax simultaneously dismissive and correct on any topic, as concrete evidence that ISIS was the killer elite, freshly led by one Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, (his name sounds exactly like “Big Daddy,”) a raving jihadist psychopath recently released from American custody at Camp Bucca in Iraq after a Combined Review and Release Board pronounced him harmless. Oops.

Introducing Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi--Just call him "Big Daddy."

Introducing Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi–at WOOF we just call him “Big Daddy.”

ISIS is, in fact, crazier, bigger, and better financed than the Al Qaeda bin Laden led on 9/11. Congressman Tim Bishop (who is, mirabile dictu, a Democrat from New York) warned in a recent speech that at least 40 U.S. citizens who joined and fought with the Islamic State of Iraq have since repatriated themselves to the United States, where they clearly pose a threat of domestic terrorism.  For that matter, “John the Beatle,” the terrorist who beheads infidels for ISIS’s entertainment division, is in fact British. The FBI announced last week that they now know “John’s” true identity but said they are withholding it so as not to “tip him off.” We know it too, however. It’s Abdel-Majed Abdel Bary, a former British rap “singer,” who, we feel certain, was tipped off the moment the FBI said they knew who he was–right?

It’s foreign policy, stupid!

This may explain why nobody ever compares Obama to the other Roosevelt!

This may explain why nobody ever compares Obama to the other Roosevelt!

In a nation ruled by apathy and ignorance, where most Americans still tune to CNN or the Dinosaur Networks on those rare occasions that they perceive some necessity for glimpsing a newscast (while remaining oblivious of these “news sources” roles as progressive propaganda mills), it is easy to comprehend why sheer bombast suffices again and again as policy for the current administration. But facts, as John Adams once pointed out, are stubborn things, and ISIS is a stubborn fact. Moreover, it is a curious aspect of foreign policy that it uniquely imposes such stubborn facts in ways that defy insouciance, both presidential and proletarian, and imposes them with greater and graver intensity when initially ignored. Too, the classic Obama tactic of claiming ignorance and feigning aloofness cannot be practically applied in the realm of foreign affairs.  An American president plays many roles in conjunction with the other arms of government, and often delegates many areas of administrative responsibility to others. Thus he may on occasion, (or on nearly every occasion if he is Barack Obama) lay claim to being ill-informed, even out of the loop, rather than culpable of professional msconduct—but never in matters of foreign policy. The president alone is commander in chief and while treaties and the waging of war must, at least theoretically, be sanctioned by congress, the protection of his nation’s shores and the defense of its population is the lonely duty of the man at the top. For this reason, when stubborn facts present themselves on the geopolitical scene, whether as Pearl Harbor, the Bay of Pigs, the Tet Offensive, the Twin Towers, or ISIS storming Fallujah, they demand presidential responses.

Obama’s Achilles heel…

And so it is for Our Beloved Helmsman! The American news media, always left-wing in outlook, abandoned all pretense to the contrary and effectively functioned as the Illinois Senator’s advance team during both recent elections. Candy Crowley even debated for him! For more than six years we have been assured by the pundits that when Obama says dumb things or makes perplexingly awful decisions, he is operating on a cerebral level too ethereal for our meager minds to grasp—and when any of us questions this, or questions the man’s curious background, we are called racist.honey

But now we have ISIS, that ill wind from the East, that provocation from beyond our bordering oceans, and they don’t care about any of the above. They are like the virally infamous honey badger, and we all know honey badger don’t care! ISIS don’t care that Obama sends them coy little signals of Muslim affinity, or makes plain in every way possible that his goals for the Middle East are essentially similar to theirs. To ISIS Obama is just some parvenu in the White House who needs his throat slit along with the rest of us. Moreover, ISIS is devoid of any inclination to negotiate. It is also implacably hostile and ludicrously visible, and thus President Obama has been driven to the wall. He cannot distract us with a war against Ebola, or a speech about “climate disruption,” and he dare not create a firestorm by granting blanket amnesty to illegal aliens until after the elections next month—no, he needs to appear determined to confront ISIS with force. It is tempting to write that Obama needs a strategy, but this is untrue. As we shall continue to argue, he has a strategy.  What Obama needs now is an apparent strategy—a sham piece that maintains appearances while the plot thickens unobserved.

Curb your hostilities! 

imkerry noseBy now most Americans have been sufficiently informed by the administration to realize that we either are, or are not, at war with ISIS. On the one hand President Obama has denounced ISIS as a cancer that “must be destroyed,” while our Secretary of State, John Forbes Kerry (who served in Vietnam before he was against it) almost simultaneously assured CBS’s Margaret Brennan that we are not at war with ISIS, emphasizing that while “a global coalition” was being assembled to “battle” ISIS, “war is the wrong terminology and analogy” for such a “very significant global effort to curb terrorist activity.”  So, setting aside for the moment our Secretary of States’ pathological obsession with all things ‘global,’ what, exactly, is going on?  Before we depart this subject, WOOF will explain in detail how we are and are not at war with a “cancer” that was previously the junior varsity and which we simultaneously intend to destroy but, really, merely to degrade while causing it, in the President’s words, to be “vanquished from the earth” by American forces who “will not have a combat mission” because “we will not get dragged into another ground war in Iraq,” despite which, our vice president assures us, we will hunt ISIS “to the gates of Hell” even as his boss helpfully adds that ISIS “is not Islamic,” and reminds us that, while we are not a war, fighting them will necessitate a “very real battle.”  Can one descry a strategy here?  Well, WOOF can—we’re just that good!

The noise before defeat…

sun tzuSun Tzu wrote that “strategy without tactics is the slowest route to victory, while tactics without strategy is the noise before defeat.” In this one instance (unlikely to be repeated) WOOF agrees that our president’s thoughts actually do occupy an ideative realm set well apart from more pedestrian insights. For Barack Hussein Obama, “tactics without strategy” constitute the perfect strategy; and the final goal is, in fact, defeat, meaning the defeat of the colonial powers (that’s us) and the triumph of the Caliphate abroad, and socialism, pestilence, and cultural deracination at home. But this, like virtually everything else the administration strives for, must be wrapped in deceit.

Steven Sotloff was typical of the journalists who sojourned in Islamic countries to tell the Muslim story. ISIS don't care!

Steven Sotloff was typical of  journalists who travel to Islamic countries to tell the Muslim story. but ISIS don’t care!

Thus, if he had his druthers, which for once he does not, Obama would prefer to ignore ISIS altogether and let radical Islam first destabilize and eventually engulf the nations of the Middle East, sweeping across North Africa and Turkey while he played golf.  The First Marxist fully expected to continue speechifying at fund raisers, chowing on kobe beef and talking Five Percent Nation with Beyonce and Jay Z while this occurred. All that such a plan required was that Americans be persuaded to join their president in ignoring ISIS (they’re just the junior varsity, hee, hee!) and normally that would have been simple enough to accomplish. The same eagle-eyed journalists who made the wars and casualties in Afghanistan and Iraq disappear as soon as Obama was sworn in were expected to ignore ISIS. Sure, FOX would yammer about them, but the president would smirk and say, “Well, that’s just a FOX story,” and the press corpse would provide the sycophantic laugh track. So what went wrong? ISIS kept slitting the throats of journalists, darn it—even American journalists—good, liberal, pro-Muslim journalists–and some vestigial trace of journalistic simpatico required even MSNBC to cover the slayings.

And no sooner had they been denounced as the JV than ISIS rolled over the Iraqi army, occupied Fallujah and Mosul and threatened to capture Baghdad—somewhat hard to explain as “just a FOX story.” For these reasons, the preferred Obama strategy of ignoring and de-emphasizing the problem wouldn’t work. Distraction was trotted out next. This entailed first importing Ebola and then declaring war on Ebola, and when that failed initially, war was declared on global warming, (again), but finally, ISIS won overdue acknowledgement.

ISIS marches toward Baghdad–not just a FOX story, anymore!

Realize that to Barack Obama, ISIS is that beloved but unruly Pit Bull puppy whose place in the family is secure, but whose rambunctiousness creates public embarrassments that must be finessed from time to time by feigning concern. This included devoting an entire week to denying he ever called ISIS the junior varsity to begin with, which enormity even his most slavishly devoted journalistic lickspittles could not bestir themselves to report straight-facedly (you know, because there are transcripts and video tape—duh), and which enormity even the preternaturally disingenuous Josh Earnest seemed hard pressed to enunciate without blanching.

unrulyEven today, ISIS, that rowdy Pit Bull pup, persists in irksomely beheading hostages while the president gamely prevaricates about how decisively he is subduing them. Fifty-five-year-old Herve Gourde, a French mountain climber, was beheaded on camera while Obama addressed the UN on September 24—a surefire scene stealer guaranteed to distract even the most ardent globalist from the president’s longwinded aphorisms. But bombing is a good attention-getter too, traditionally, and when bombing is desirable because it slyly advances the cause of radical Islam in Syria, or cannot be avoided because it is suddenly important to appear resistant to the onward march of radical Islam, or both, then bombing becomes Obama’s fallback position. It looks wonderfully forceful on television, but militarily this is not a war that can be fought decisively from the air. ISIS likes to operate amid thronging civilian populations so that bombing them without killing hundreds of non-combatants will be next to impossible, and Obama has gone out of his way, as usual, to assure the enemy that he will absolutely not put “American boots on the ground,” unless we count the 1,600 “advisors” just dispatched to Iraq, and the 450 plus we admit inserting into Syria—assuming they have boots.

Our suddenly militarized media

Have you seen this woman?

Have you seen this woman?

Report from U.K.-based human rights organizations like the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, allege that U.S.-led airstrikes in Syria are killing mainly civilians. Obviously, U.S. Central Command (CENTCOM) differs, insisting that the areas targeted were “being used by ISIS as a logistics hub and vehicle staging facility,” while the Observatory maintains they were used exclusively for food storage making the only casualties civilians who worked there. The only (almost amusingly ironic) certainty is that the Liberal Establishment Media will now ignore humanitarian claims of innocent civilian deaths while emphasizing CENTCOM’s version. Indeed, American military leadership must be wondering if they are suddenly “back to the future,” as the Pentagon enjoys its most supportive press coverage since Walter Cronkite emitted war whoops from the rear seat of a dive-bombing jet over Da Nang back in 1965—yes, Woofketeers, back when Cronkite was praising Vietnam as  “the courageous decision that Communism’s advance must be stopped in Asia and that guerilla warfare as a means to a political end must be finally discouraged.”  Surely what we have before us is a mean season indeed for the likes of Cindy Sheehan, unless she too has transformed into a hawk—we confess, we haven’t checked.

20140923_Airstrikes-646x900More significantly, the media also refuse to take note of the lopsided tactical emphasis on Syria while Iraq, where we might presume to have a vested interest, is paid little more than lip service. As American planes readied assaults reaching far into Syria, a large Iraqi army base in Anbar province fell to a stream of Humvees manned by ISIS fighters who killed or captured around 500 Iraqi troops (and then slaughtered the captured ones) as they occupied Camp Saqlawiyah outside of Baghdad. Example: On October 4th, ISIS occupied the entire Abu Ghraib region, putting it within artillery range of Baghdad while we relentlessly bombed Syria. The American trained Iraqi army is ignored even as those always miasmic “moderate” Syrian insurgents are lately praised by Obama as “our boots on the ground,” which might worry Americans a tad if they recall the president telling us only two months ago that these same rebels were nothing but “farmers, doctors and pharmacists who couldn’t possibly stand up” militarily. The oddity of the Syrian emphasis seem to have briefly distracted even the subversive Washington Post, which permitted Senator Corker to editorialize: “Today, after three years of bold rhetoric divorced from reality, 170,000 Syrians are dead, and we are not innocent bystanders. Extremist groups from Syria have surged into Iraq, seizing key territory and resources, and are threatening to completely undo the progress of years of U.S. sacrifice.”  So, arming these elements now that they are either radicalized or bound by articles of truce appears to be Obama’s master plan. The real plan (we pause here to reiterate at the risk of waxing boresome), is the overthrow of Assad…a rerun of Libya…so don’t volunteer for the ambassadorial post, just saying.

o'poleonMost of us have noticed the president never misses an opportunity to tell the enemy what he won’t do to beat them, what he will do, when he plans to begin, when he’ll stop, what he plans to do in the meantime, and when he’ll pull out entirely. That’s partly because when the sole purpose of military action is to make a visual splash on the home front, secrecy is not useful. It is also to subdue those elements of his base that honestly oppose war (as opposed to that larger element that appears to oppose war when Republicans are in office). It is also meant to keep the likes of ISIS updated on our movements, which fact is hard to accept, we know. But now, despite having divested every branch of the military of battle-worthy leadership [story here], Obama is now getting flak from his brass hats, domesticated though they be.  Seemingly, even the most sycophantically-political officer corps can be driven from opportunism to perplexity and finally to alarm by sufficient levels of presidential irresponsibility…while remnants of the authentic martial caste froth at the mouth from retirement, much of it forced.

A little rebellion:

It began when Obama came under attack for announcing numbly that he possessed “no strategy” for dealing with ISIS prior to jetting back to Martha’s Vineyard. True to form, as soon as critics seized upon this mind-boggling admission, Our Beloved Helmsman blamed somebody else. In this case, he blamed the Pentagon for not generating a strategy for him by which to confront ISIS. This whopper actually provoked the Pentagon into a rare display of contumacy. The military unequivocally asserted that the Commander-in-Chief had been handed a number of operational options, and chosen to do nothing. Or rather, to play golf, but the Pentagon didn’t specify that. We just added it to be helpful.

barry tees off

The president goes to war.

The mole turns! Brennan mat be Obama's pro-Islamic sttoge at Langley, but even stooges have their limits!

The mole turns! Brennan may be Obama’s pro-Islamic stooge at Langley, but even stooges have their limits!

It may also be recalled that the president appeared thereafter on the subversive CBS TV program 60 Minutes explaining that his intelligence services were in fact responsible for completely underestimating ISIS, thus inciting even his personal implant at the CIA, John Brennan, (former Democrat party hack, intelligence-community dilettante and probable closet Muslim) to excuse himself from bugging the Senate long enough to contradict Obama publicly, insisting that CIA had been warning the president about ISIS for well over a year. Even Janet Napolitano, that loyalest of Obama’s apparat-chicks, sounded off to the effect that DHS had been warning the First Marxist about ISIS “for years.” Even the subversive Daily Beast  felt obliged to fact check the Obama interview, contacting a “senior Pentagon official” who remarked, “Either the president doesn’t read the intelligence he’s getting or he’s bullshitting.” Although it appears to have eluded the Beast, these allegations are far from mutually exclusive.

“A snowball’s chance in Hell”

chuck

Did he approve the plan? Ummmm—no!

Once the president finally explained that we would do some bombing but nothing more, the usually tractable chairman of the Joint Chiefs, General Dempsey, went so far as to suggest publically that the president reconsider his policy. This sufficiently jolted Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel that he took time off from reducing our military to pre-World War Two levels to insist that he and Dempsey had, in fact, agreed on a Middle East policy and already briefed the president on it, which would have played better had not a freakishly incautious reporter asked whether the president had ever actually gotten around to approving the plan– which Hagel tersely admitted he hadn’t.

Marine General James “Mad Dog” Mattis who served under Obama until last year, proceeded to tell the House Intelligence Committee that, “Half-hearted or tentative efforts, or airstrikes alone, can backfire on us and actually strengthen our foes…we may not wish to reassure our enemies in advance that they will not see American boots on the ground.” Meanwhile, Army Gen. Lloyd Austin, active commander for the Middle East, recommended interposing American forces on the ground in Iraq even as Obama’s former defense secretary Bobby Gates recently assured CBS News that “There will be boots on the ground if there’s to be any hope of success in the strategy.”  Former Secretary Gates is not, so far as we know, a WOOF reader and may be forgiven, therefore, for failing to fully conceptualize the Obaman approach to all this. So too may retired Marine General James Conway who addressed the Maverick PAC conference in Washington, declaring, “I don’t think the president’s plan has a snowball’s chance in Hell of succeeding.” The discerning Woofketeer will by now have grasped that each of these critiques exhibits an identical misconception—namely, that the president seeks an American military triumph in the Middle East. He does not. He seeks only to do the minimum necessary to deflect criticism while the Caliphate rolls on.

mad dog

“Mad Dog” Mattis comes out of retirement long enough to point out the painfully obvious!

“Failing and failing miserably”

John Kerry, of course, is entirely in his element amid all this eyewash,  and flanked by Jan Psaki-type hash-taggers from Foggy Bottom, whom Victoria O’Kane perfectly described as looking like “rejects from the cast of Mean Girls without the intellect,” Kerry gushed over his coalition of  Arab nations nominally supportive of our air offensive (and who may even contribute a jet plane or two without of course contributing any boots). Kerry (who served in Vietnam before he was against it) continues to deliver himself of bold rhetoric around which his international forces may rally, booming only recently that if “Iran and Syria don’t have any capacity to take on Isil. I mean, who knows? I don’t know what’s going to happen here…If we’re failing and failing miserably, who knows what choice they’re [sic] might make?”

Even when preparing to fail miserably, Secretary of State John Kerry spends hours each day practicing thinking globally.

Amazingly enough, even when preparing to fail miserably, Secretary of State John Kerry spends hours each day practicing thinking globally.

Indeed, even as Slow Rappin’ Preezy announced his perception that armed Syrians could carry the day against, well, other armed Syrians, despite his formerly expressed views on the matter, Kerry busily denied reports he’d begged Iran’s mullahs for assistance, denouncing the rumors as “utterly false.” Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, took exception to Kerry’s claim, however, insisting that the Obama administration privately approached Tehran seeking assistance in battling ISIS, but was flatly rejected because, as the Ayatollah reminded his followers, the US administration has “corrupt intention and stained hands.”  Even a stopped clock, right?

Organizing Arabs…

Not since Jesse Jackson led the PLO in chanting self-affirming rhymes has an american public figure thought to "organize the arabs!"

Not since Jesse Jackson led the PLO in chanting self-affirming rhymes in the ’80s has an American public figure thought to “organize the Arabs!”

Before we discuss the president’s recent speech to the world (via the subversive United Nations), let us first review his September 3rd remarks, delivered in Estonia, where the First Marxist enjoined Estonians, and the rest of us, one assumes, “to recognize that threats evolve, and threats have evolved as a consequence of what we’ve seen in Ukraine, but threats are also evolving in the Middle East.” We at WOOF resonated to this, because we’ve long suspected that the Middle East was evolving on a path separate from, but commensurate with, the president’s views on Gay marriage and Putin’s intentions respecting the Ukraine—but despite the president’s assurances of a year ago that his policy worked “to end a decade of war,” it seems the Arab world is not entirely free of strife, apparently because “pervasive unease” erupted in the region, although Mr. Obama explained “the United States is not and never will be at war with Islam [because] Islam teaches peace.” “What we’ve got to do,” Obama explained, “is make sure that we are organizing the Arab world.”

If Sir Winston looks grouchy here, it's only because he's the only foreigner ever kicked out of America by Barack Obama.

If Sir Winston looks peevish here, it’s only because he’s the only foreigner ever kicked out of America by Barack Obama.

While the president’s wartime exhortations may be said to compare unfavorably with William the Conqueror’s prior to the Battle of Hastings, i.e., “May the lightning of your glory be seen and the thunders of your onset heard from east to west,” or Henry the Fifth’s at Agincourt: “We few, we happy few, we band of brothers…”or practically anything Winston Churchill ever breathed into a microphone decades prior to his forcible removal from Mr. Obama’s Oval Office, that’s not important now. We are briefly intrigued, however, by Obama’s bizarre, almost poignant regression into the belief that the Arab world requires simply to be organized! (At last, something with which he has actual experience!)

The President’s speech.

king-obama3From the moment he began his address to the nation in the wake of the original Fort Hood massacre by jubilantly offering “shout outs” to his staffers, Obama’s tone deafness has been a consistent source of astonishment. Whether golfing in the immediate wake of a beheading or snapping giddy selfies at Mandela’s funeral, the absence of authentic empathy is impossible to ignore. He is lately reported to giggle inappropriately during briefings and  babble incoherently during phone conversations. It should not surprise us, then, that Obama’s performance at the UN amounted to a desultory concatenation of PC bromides rather than a call to arms. Let us sort through the debris.

Obama first congratulated the UN on having established world peace inasmuch as “The shadow of World War that existed at the founding of this institution has been lifted…” despite which, somewhat paradoxical references ensued to “Russian aggression in Europe [that] recalls the days when large nations trampled small ones in pursuit of territorial ambition.” The worldwide economic crisis was pronounced over and dealt with, oddly because we’ve “learned how to cure disease, and harness the power of the wind and sun.”  “And yet,” Obama reflected, “there is a pervasive unease in our world – a sense that the very forces that have brought us together have created new dangers, and made it difficult for any single nation to insulate itself from global forces.” (If college kids are not playing drinking games during administration speeches mandating a shot every time some permutation of “global” pops up, WOOF cannot imagine why not!)

"Dude! He said it again!"

“Dude! He said it again!”

Despite having learned how to cure disease, the president reminded the assembled nations that “Ebola overwhelms public health systems in West Africa, and threatens to move rapidly across borders,” especially ours, of course, because we don’t seem to have any. And yes, “the brutality of terrorists in Syria and Iraq forces us to look into the heart of darkness.” But lest the stirring imagery of Joseph Conrad overwhelm the assemblage and shame it to authentic action, the president immediately sank into the banal conceit that such horrors were merely “symptoms of a broader problem – the failure of our international system to keep pace with an interconnected world.” You know—globally. In fact, all too often “we have not confronted forcefully enough the intolerance, sectarianism, and hopelessness that feeds violent extremism in too many parts of the globe.” (Take a shot, kids!)

“I dunno, Dimitrik, I’ve been looking all day and I still don’t see any ‘international norms’ out there, do you?”

Parsed here for the convenience of readers in a hurry, Obama went on to emphasize the need to “renew the international system” by reaffirming “our collective responsibility to confront global problems” “through concerted and collective effort,” by which we “must meet our responsibility to observe and enforce international norms.” This seemed to remind the president that Russia was not behaving well, which thought prompted him to blurt, “America and our allies will support the people of Ukraine as they develop their democracy and economy.” Really? He might have added, “The United States and Britain affirmed their commitment to protect Ukraine’s borders in a memorandum signed by President Bill Clinton in 1994, reaffirmed by President Bush, and reaffirmed by me, and in keeping with this understanding, any territorial invasion of the Ukraine will be met by American and British steel…” but even if he had said such a thing, which of course he never would, nobody would have believed him. So instead, he sidled into his war on Ebola, assuring the general assembly that “As we speak, America is deploying our doctors and scientists – supported by our military – [huh?] to help contain the outbreak of Ebola and pursue new treatments.” That we would shortly be requiring these services in Texas and soon, presumably, across the continental United States owing to the Obama administration’s open borders policy and its enthusiastic importation of infected medical personnel went unmentioned.  Instead Obama suggested that other nations “join us in making concrete commitments to fight this outbreak, and enhance global health security for the long-term.”

ebola two

Concrete steps to stop Ebola: First, send your medical specialists overseas. Next, send the military to “support” them. Next, bring infected patients here and let a bunch more in by accident! Next–remind everyone to wash their hands…

And as if this were not sufficiently odd in a speech ostensibly addressing the villainy of ISIS, he added that “America is pursuing ambitious reductions in our carbon emissions, and we have increased our investments in clean energy. We will do our part, and help developing nations to do theirs.” Could it get any balmier? Yes, because the topic of Ferguson also proved irresistible to Obama who lamented “our own ethnic and racial tensions” as he directed his thoughts to “the small American city…where a young man was killed, and a community was divided.”  His prescribed solution for perceived American racism? “Globalization and greater diversity with the traditions that we hold dear,” even though it defies rationality that any tradition is made dearer through diversification…doesn’t it?

erAnd yes, there followed a considerable amount of fustian targeting “ISIL” but oddly conjoined with  bizarre allusions to Eleanor Roosevelt, “a champion of the UN and America’s role in it,” [and here we thought that was Alger Hiss] who taught us that “Universal human rights…begin…in small places, close to home – so close and so small that they cannot be seen on any maps of the world.” Okay…and with this lackluster recitation of insipidities, the president’s speech dragged through its denouement and lurched to a halt. Only David Brooks, who seems hell bent on establishing his reputation as a more composed version of Chris Matthews, could write unabashedly, “It was one of the finest speeches of his presidency.” Heck, even CBS News headlined it as “Mission Not Accomplished.” But CBS, for all its affiliation with and dedication to the Obaman cause, has no idea what the man’s mission truly entails. WOOF. on the other hand, knows that Obama’s true mission comes in three easy pieces; and here they are in no necessary order…

One: It’s the Caliphate, stupid!

lindorf

David Lindorff

News item:  David Lindorff, an investigative  journalist in the Middle East remarked during an interview with Press TV on Saturday, September 29th, that US-led strikes advertized as hitting terrorists are actually intended to target Syrian government positions, declaring “…it’s all an effort to eventually be bombing in Syria where they can switch the target to the Syrian government’s target.” Lindorff further opined that British reluctance to participate in airstrikes inside Syria stemmed from Whitehall’s realization that, “They did not want to be dragged into…regime change in Syria.” It may be recalled that the British also quite sensibly resisted rushing to judgment over the White House’s claim that Assad used chemical weaponry back in 2013—back when President Obama first drew the line that he claimed Assad had crossed before saying that he never drew any line before saying that the “international community” drew the line, not him.

Lindorff insists that the “clear suspicion” in Britain is that the US strikes in Syria “are “really about having the planes flying there and then eventually shifting the target to Assad.”  So there, gentle readers—now you have heard it from the notorious paranoids at WOOF, from David Lindorff, and (by admittedly tenuous extension) Her Majesty’s government. WOOF knows the president’s bombing campaign is aimed at eradicating any trace of secular governance in Syria permitting radicals to seize power in Damascus…just like in Libya, and just like in Egypt.

So, with England and Europe absenting themselves from the scam, who are our allies in the Syrian bombing sorties? Why, John Kerry’s marvelous coalition of Muslim nations, namely, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates…champions of secular democracy all! And now Turkey, currently led by a radical Islamist, has joined Kerry’s Kommandos. To paraphrase John Wayne, what do want us to do,  draw you a picture?

Two: It’s the Senate, stupid!

stewart better

Domestically, as much will appear to be happening as will suffice to secure the Senate for the Democrats in November. Afterwards, even as blanket amnesty is granted by regal fiat to the masses of undocumented aliens in our midst, and even as fresh attacks on the 1st and 2nd amendments are launched, Iraq (and especially the valiant and serially betrayed Kurds) will be thrown to the wolves and ISIS’s name will no longer play across the lips of America’s liberal TV commentators…this, besides the man’s endemic aversion to substance, is why the president’s speech was so vacuous. It was merely theater aimed at domestic consumption while the Liberal News Media successfully propagandize for the re-election to the senate of Democrats who could not plausibly run for dog catcher in a nation safeguarded by objective journalists.

Three: It’s the Eve of Destruction, stupid!

armagedon

CNN has discovered that Ebola is here and infectious despite their hero’s dutifully reported assurances that Ebola spreading in America was “unlikely,” and they have discovered that it gets ratings. This means they will have to lean over backwards to avoid reporting that President Obama, Health and Human Services Secretary Sylvia Burwell, Department of Homeland Security Secretary Johnson, and Secretary of State Kerry could have stopped Ebola from entering our country at any time by asserting their authority under the Immigration and Nationality Act, and didn’t bother. Why not? Doesn’t Obama live here too? Hilariously, the administration simply banned Ebola, qua Ebola, as though that were even possible—as though doing so were akin to, say, Britain banning Michael Savage. But nothing was done to limit Ebola’s spread. Flights continue to land in the United States from countries infested with the virus while head scratchers in congress continue to wonder why Obama doesn’t seem engaged. And lest you suppose that the Left will now awaken to the administration’s culpability in these matters, consider that the anti-gun group “States United to Prevent  Gun Violence” is already informing its membership that the National Rifle Association is to blame, because they are stalling the nomination of  anti-gun  leftist Vivek Murthy as Surgeon General who could otherwise “educate the American public about the actual level of risk.” And if you think this is too absurd to be taken seriously by anyone, consider: MSNBC is now running with the story—and no, WOOF is not making this up!

sarah nra

Somebody stop this woman before she brings another Ebola-riven immigrant into this country!

Yet lately it seems as if even the most obedient media popinjays (and popinjettes) are at a loss to explain, even to one another, the illogic of Our Beloved Helmsman’s strangest enthusiasms. It is one thing to assist an ever-diminishing viewership in shrugging off the chief executive’s utter lack of attention to virtually anything besides himself and his amusements while the planet careens toward chaos—and quite another to believe it yourself. An NBC cameraman in Africa has contracted Ebola… journalists are getting their heads sliced off. This wasn’t exactly the deal liberalism made with “hope and change,” and yet even the president’s most ardent political critics seem unable to and grasp the operative metanarrative: Destruction.

The wreck of the Narcissist

The 5th edition of the American Psychiatric Association’s Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders notes that certain human beings present with symptoms that include a pervasive pattern of grandiosity, a pronounced lack of empathy, a tendency to exaggerate their achievements and talents, a requirement for excessive admiration, a sense of entitlement, a willingness to take advantage of or exploit others, a belief that they are superior, special, or perfect, a tendency to become furious when others do not seem to acknowledge their specialness, and “arrogant, haughty behaviors or attitudes.” We will (albeit gleefully) leave our readers free to assign such attributes to whichever public figures they deem appropriate. Our only clinical contribution here will be to point out that an individual who meets these criteria is one who is afflicted with Narcissistic Personality Disorder (coded by the DSM 5 as 301.81—you know, just in case Obamacare covers it).

Things didn't end too well for Narcissus, as Jules Cyrille Cave attempted to illustrate in this neo-Raphaelite classic.

Things didn’t end too well for Narcissus, as Jules Cyrille Cave attempted to illustrate in his pre-Raphaelite classic.

Narcissism is not a diagnosis that blends well with ignominious endings. Limping off stage as the worst president in American history, just for  example, is not an outcome  a narcissist would enjoy. Psychic instability could result from such a circumstance and when this occurs the extreme narcissist risks a level of transient psychosis, or decompensation. In lay terms, he goes a bit bonkers. He may generate a crisis—and were his grandiosity of, say, presidential proportions, the crisis would be commensurate.  Any sense of rejection, overt or implicit, would beget rage–rage against the unappreciative, ungrateful maggots who failed to acknowledge and support the narcissist’s genius, and at this point, the narcissist lashes out. Hitler’s ravings in his bunker that Germany had proved unworthy of his greatness are classic. The lust to bring destruction upon an entire civilization, moreover, might dovetail nicely with a need to destroy evidence or eliminate loose ends (think Jim Jones). If one had faked this or that element of his persona, or fraudulently represented his past, how better to cover one’s tracks than by provoking Gotterdammerung? Or, in a pinch, enough social destabilization, communicable disease, military decline and racial and religious strife to ensure disaster.

rage

The narcissist risks a level of transient psychosis, or decompensation…just sayin’.

McCarthy’s maxim:

jrmIf you follow us on TWITTER (and we certainly don’t demand it of you), you have already noticed that we respond to claims that Barack Obama is simply not up to the job intellectually with the same quote every time. We are often asked the origin of the quote. It is, in fact, Joe McCarthy. Confronted with suggestions that General Marshall’s record of perceived collusion with the USSR was nothing more than a series of naïve misjudgments, McCarthy rejoined, “If [he] were merely stupid, the laws of probability would have dictated that at least some of his decisions would have served this country’s interest.”  C’mon, even if you  abhor Joe, you have to love that. McCarthy’s maxim defines Obama’s presidency and predicts his endgame. Slow Rappin’ Preezy is no genius—good heavens, he has proved himself an intellectual lightweight on innumerable occasions. But he is not an idiot. And it doesn’t take a genius to set America ablaze, just an ego on steroids, a loyal coterie of pernicious communists and Islamists, a media and entertainment industry mindlessly devoted to Dear Leader’s cult of personality, and all the powers of the U.S. presidency, both constitutional and assumed. Scared yet?

No matter what transpires in November, gentle readers, the odds will not shift enough to ease our plight greatly. We are living in perilous times, and the days ahead will challenge our faith and test our cause. So cowboy up, hunker down, and stand the lonely watches, for the whirlwind fast approaches, the enemy has breached our walls, “and ladies and gentlemen,” as the above-cited Junior Senator also once remarked, “the chips are down—they are truly down..!” WOOF PRINT

THE ROAD TO TEHRAN

In "Springtime for Terror" Forum on November 25, 2013 at 5:13 pm

road to splash use

The road to Tehran….

Oh noooo, President Obama has once again taken an interest in the politics of the Middle East—and even worse, he’s taken an interest in nuclear gamesmanship with Iran. WOOF is prepared to view these latest developments objectively, looking at both points of view. This means allowing on the one hand for the inevitability of any Obama initiative leading to disastrous outcomes because the president is privately committed to advancing Muslim interests while reducing the potency of American influence and doing whatever he can to contribute to the ultimate destruction of Israel, which he despises. On the other hand, to be fair, we must allow for the inevitability of any Obama initiative leading to disastrous outcomes because the president is an idiot. Long time readers know that WOOF is a stubborn defender of President Obama against all those critics who claim he is simply inept and stupid—because we firmly believe that the president, while not the sharpest light bulb in the six pack, is a conscious and not unintelligent component of the worldwide totalitarian socialist conspiracy, who governs with the firm intent of laying waste to our economy, our defenses, and our prestige abroad. And if the president is not himself enamored of seeing Israel come under nuclear assault during his second term, suffice it that Valerie Jarrett is, and it is Valerie Jarrett, a native-born Iranian communist, who makes policy and controls events, at least in the West Wing.

The Hillary Years

Nobody at the State Department speaks Russian? Now, that's hard to believe, somehow!

Nobody at the State Department speaks Russian? Now, that’s hard to believe, somehow!

The Hillary Clinton era of middle-eastern diplomacy may be said to have come to a squawking halt with Her Magnificence’s hysterical testimony before congress (which testimony was considerably delayed by the mysterious bump to the head Mrs. Clinton evidently received immediately following the assault on our consulate and its annex and the murder of Ambassador Stevens). The details remain even fuzzier than her congressional testimony. But as Obama’s secretary of state she cut a broad swath, beginning her career at State by handing the Russians a red button that was supposed to say “reset” but actually bore the Russian word for “overcharged.” Her Magnificence not only oversaw the total collapse of Russo/American relations, she engineered the overthrow of Gaddafi and the collapse of Libya into terror-driven chaos. 

Gadaffi--just dead after a long cross-town tour.

Gadaffi–just dead after a long cross-town tour.

Americans almost completely overlooked this horrendous misjudgment coupled with an unconstitutionally waged war by the Commander in Chief—possibly because those who remembered Gaddafi at all remembered him as the bad guy Ronald Reagan bombed into neutrality in the 1980s. But that is precisely why eliminating Qaddafi made no sense at all…at least from an American perspective. Gaddafi refrained from exporting any further mayhem after Reagan blew up his air force, bombed his palace and sank his navy in 1986 . He renounced terrorism publicly in 2003, agreeing to dismantle his WMD stores and shut down his nuclear program while declaring his intention to join in the fight against Muslim extremism in North Africa.  Given these facts, Hillary and Barack could not get rid of the guy fast enough. America flew air cover for Al Qaeda, slowly attriting the loyalist forces in Libya until Gaddafi was captured strapped to the hood of a car and driven around his home town until he’d been pummeled, shot, and stabbed to death, at which point Hillary famously cackled, “We came, we saw, he died!” (And they say she has no sense of humor!)

indexhilllaff

But the reduction of Libya to mob rule was not Hillary’s first contribution to regional extremism. She and Barack turned on Gaddafi only after toppling our staunchest Arab ally, Egypt’s President Hosni Mubarak. It was with Mubarak’s unceremonious ejection from office following considerable internecine violence and at least one head-turning manifestation of the 4th horseman of the Apocalypse trotting through the riot-torn streets of Cairo [check it out here ]  that the American media first began chirruping about “Arab Spring.” To hear CNN or MSNBC on the subject, a fresh passion for human liberty was sweeping the region like a cosseting vernal breeze. Meanwhile, in the real world, the Muslim Brotherhood electioneered its way into the presidential palace in Cairo and set about clamping down on Egyptians with—what else?–Sharia Law. This was exactly what the Obama administration expected and desired, but it caught the media by surprise. An amusing irony inherent in  Obama’s snug relationship with the American press is that while the media almost universally adore Our Beloved Helmsman, they have never understood the man, nor fathomed his motives. To an air head, the jabbering media elitists genuinely expected a golden age of democracy to sweep the middle east following fast on the heels of Hillary Clinton’s demolition jobs, but only sectarian violence and Islamo-fascist oppression manifested themselves.

The Fourth Horseman? You probably had to be there.

Her Magnificence’s contributions in brief 

Zelaya--describing the Israeli mercenary force that jumped him in bed!

Zelaya–describing the Israeli mercenary force that jumped him in bed!

To innocent bystanders, Hillary’s record at State appears to consist of a series of inexplicable bungles. First, (following her conspicuous failure to master the vagaries of the Russian language), came her now-long-forgotten efforts to restore the communist Manuel Zelaya to power in Honduras after his removal in a bloodless coup d’état authorized by the Honduran Supreme Court. Zelaya’s 2009 ouster was noisily, even bellicosely decried by Her Magnificence and by Obama himself, but in the end Honduras ignored their bombast and Comrade Zelaya found himself exiled to Costa Rica, taking calls from his pals Hugo Chavez and Raul Castro, and complaining that “Israeli mercenaries” had snatched him from his presidential bed.

Mrs. Clinton bellows her “reasonable question.”

Then came the transformation of Egypt and Libya from stabilizing influences in the region to chaos-riven terror states, which transformation was driven home by the attack on our Libyan consulate in Benghazi carried out by Al Qaeda-allied forces and resulting in the death of Ambassador Stevens, his aide de camp, and two SEALs. Clinton never explained her refusal to lift a finger to reinforce the consulate’s security running up to the incident. She never explained why, in the face of repeated pleas from Stevens that she strengthen his security, she did the opposite and out-sourced the consulate’s protection to a rag-tag batch of locals. She never explained her mysterious absence from her post during the entirety of the crisis, nor her refusal to testify in the wake of the incident on the grounds of having bumped her head. The closest she came to clarifying such matters when she finally consented to address the joint House and Senate committee was when she balled up her fists and shrilled, “What difference, at this point, does it make?” And lest anyone doubt that liberalism is akin to clinical psychosis, let it also be noted that The New Yorker’s Amy Davidson called that “a reasonable question.” But we digress.

Morsi, we hardly knew ye….

TIME did all it could to help Morsi out, but apparently not enough Egyptians read Time.

TIME did all it could to help Morsi out, but apparently not enough Egyptians read Time.

While the nattering classes on both east and left coasts scratched their heads in bewilderment, Obama celebrated the installation of Sharia-law fanatics in Egypt by showering them with world-class jet aircraft and Abrams battle tanks, presumably to assist President Morsi in the elimination of his Israeli neighbors whom he famously considered, “bloodsuckers…warmongers…the descendants of apes and pigs.” When the Egyptian army and a considerable portion of the Egyptian people saw fit to rebel against the strangle hold imposed by Morsi and the Brotherhood, Obama shouted shrill admonitions against such contumacy and warned of dire consequences if Mohammed Morsi’s all-terrorist, anti-constitutional despotism were in any way obstructed from attaining its aims. And one of those aims, WOOF has frequently contended, was the kidnapping of Ambassador Stevens in order to effectuate a swap with the United States in which our Ambassador would be returned in exchange for Omar Abdel-Rahman,  otherwise known as the Blind Sheik—the militant mullah rotting in federal prison for masterminding the first attack on the twin towers during the Clinton administration. (A van bomb in the basement, remember? It failed to bring down the house.) WOOF has previously asserted, based on information available to us, that the entire Benghazi incident was a kidnapping effort that went lethally wrong when heroic Americans intervened despite Valerie Jarrett’s best efforts to quash any attempts at rescue. Many of you thought we were crazy, remember? Well, we do. But since we posted that article in August, Accuracy in Media (AIM) convened a September 16 conference with the Citizens Commission on Benghazi (CCB), during which, four-star Admiral James “Ace” Lyons, went on record with his belief that the 9/11/12 assault might well have been a kidnapping operation gone awry. Thanks, Admiral! We hate being crazy all by ourselves!

Admiral Lyons exposing the Administration (of course, let's remember that things, even if formerly true, once said on FOX NEWS become lies!)

Admiral Lyons exposing the Administration on TV. (Of course, let’s remember that things, even if formerly true, once said on FOX NEWS become lies!)

Hillary, as we all know, resigned as Secretary of State, turning her not-inconsiderable posterior to Foggy Bottom forever, just in time to be praised by most of her congressional inquisitors rather than interrogated about her culpability in helping to spawn Benghazi and lying to cover it up. Despite her debris strewn career at State and her resounding diatribes at the hearing, (which the liberal establishment media described as “feisty”) Mrs. Clinton was treated to effusive accolades from almost everyone present. John McCain, as usual, summed it up most irrationally, assuring the outgoing secretary, “We thank you for your outstanding dedication to this nation. We are proud of you. All over the world you are viewed with admiration and respect.”  Only Rand Paul spoke of Hillary’s performance as rating dismissal, and he was duly scolded by the Republican leadership for committing probity when flummery was clearly the order of the day.

Rand Paul chastised. "I guess somebody shoulda stopped the fight and told me it was her!"

Rand Paul chastised. “I guess somebody shoulda stopped the fight and told me it was her!”

As for Our Beloved Helmsman, it may be recalled that he waxed positively Dadaistic in praising Her Magnificence as “one of the finest” secretaries of state in American history, insisting that “hard work” lay behind “a lot of the successes we’ve had internationally.” Now, please remember, before you ask “What successes?” that the First Marxist considered the destruction of American alliances and the installation of the Muslim brotherhood in Egypt to be successes, and at the time he issued these encomia, his co-conspirators in the Brotherhood were still in charge in Egypt.

Kerry Redux

Kerry and Morsi--best friends forever!

Kerry and Morsi–best friends forever!

To make certain Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood maintained control in Egypt (given that the Egyptian army and the Egyptian people were increasingly perturbed by Morsi’s expanding personal power not to mention his one-night re-write of the Egyptian constitution, granting himself authority over essentially everyone and everything) Obama ordered his new Secretary of State to Cairo with orders to make sure Morsi remained top banana, (principal pomegranate?), and thus John Forbes Kerry, the first Secretary of State to be honored by a commemorative plaque in Ho Chi Minh City, winged his way toward  Far Araby. Once deplaned, Clinton’s successor launched into stentorian declarations of America’s unflagging support of the Morsi presidency, privately directed a variety of threats toward the disgruntled Army leadership (intended to squelch any inclination to stage coups), and released 250 million dollars in foreign aid to Morsi and the Brotherhood as a sign of solidarity. Satisfied that Morsi was firmly established in power, John Forbes Kerry returned to Massachusetts and kicked back on his yacht. He was sunning himself on the poop deck when he learned that the Egyptian Army had gone ahead and ousted Morsi despite his warnings, endorsements, and largesse. Since Kerry appeared foolish sunbathing confidently on his yacht while Morsi’s government collapsed in the wake of his ringing espousals, Kerry denied that he was sunning on his yacht; but alas, there were photos. So he decided that he had, in fact, been sunning on his yacht but that it was really okay because the removal of Morsi by his own military presaged a new age of democratic progress in Egypt, which would indeed seem the conclusion dictated by diplomacy, but Kerry, who was treasonable enough for the North Vietnamese, the infamous Madam Binh, and Jane Fonda, was evidently thought too pro-American to be let in on the Obama Administration’s darkest designs. Thus, Kerry’s sudden (sensible if typically hypocritical) shift to supporting the ascendant Egyptian military earned him the immediate wrath (yes, WOOF knows this) of the West Wing Troika, namely, Barack Hussein Obama, his immediate control, Valerie Jarrett, and his National Security Apparatchik, Susan Rice (she of the Sunday-show anti-Islamic movie alibis, remember? Say is that poor man still in jail?)

The Blind Sheik--upon whom Morsi was fixated--and who can blame him?

The Blind Sheik–upon whom Morsi was fixated–and who can blame him?

John Forbes Kerry must have wondered what hit him when he performed the perfectly traditional and time-honored maneuver of changing sides when Morsi was arrested by the Egyptian military. Suddenly an utterly insensate Susan Rice was all over his case, as was the equally rabid Jarrett. The newly minted Secretary had, after all, botched his assignment completely. Tasked with bolstering Morsi and scaring Morsi’s opponents into inaction, Kerry attended the necessary meetings, made the required speeches, handed out the customary payoffs and issued all the proper assurances, returning home to report his mission accomplished –only to be snapped by photographers relaxing on his boat while in Cairo the Egyptian army was clapping Morsi in irons. A Jimmy Carter or a Bill Clinton would have played along with Kerry’s sudden shift to the Army as pragmatic in the circumstances, but Team Obama comprises ideologues who identify with third world radicalism—and the deposed Morsi was still their anti-Israeli, anti-American hero.  Further, if Morsi’s Muslim Brotherhood was complicit in the plot to kidnap Ambassador Stevens and trade him for Morsi’s idol, the Blind Sheik, a military trial posed a considerable risk of exposure. The whole idea of Morsi being a prisoner remains a nightmare for Obama’s staff, and it took weeks for the key players, none of whom realistically understood diplomacy, to get over their chagrin and accept the Egyptian coup as a fait accompli. Like it or not, the radicalization of Egypt was stymied for the time being, and the Obamans turned their attention to Syria.

The war that didn’t focus group well…

Bashar Assad in paisley--small head, big neckties. high hopes!

Bashar Assad in paisley–small head, big neckties. high hopes!

Syria was never a primary target, because its dictator, Bashar Al Assad, was an accomplished terrorist, Israel hater, and oppressor of his people—all good reasons to maintain him in place–but it would do for a distraction from the president’s mounting domestic crises, and Obama and Jarrett initially saw it as a good place to conjure up a newsworthy wag-the-dog-style war filled with cruise missiles, bomb bursts, and tracer fire, dazzling viewers with sturm und drang  and distracting them from the avalanche of scandals besetting the White house in the wake of the president’s re-election. (Actually, those scandals have been subsequently eclipsed by the overwhelming disaster that is Obamacare, but sapient readers will recall them without WOOF’s prompting.) Besides, the “rebel forces” were once again Al Qaeda-affiliated terror mongers, so supporting them not only had precedent, it could lead to the insertion of a still-more-radically terroristic government in Damascus. A win-win.

Kerry's first congressional appearance--worried about "indiscriminate slaughter" even then!

Kerry’s first congressional appearance–worried about “indiscriminate slaughter” even then!

As we now realize, the war with Syria (originally scheduled because Syria either had, or had not, used chemical weapons on its own citizens—the rebel forces on closer inspection being equally suspect) was ominously presaged by the president who left no doubt that use of WMD by either side would be blamed on Assad’s side and responded to by force of arms. Anxious to redeem his status after foolishly behaving sensibly in the wake of Morsi’s discomfiture, John Forbes Kerry boldly declared that  “The indiscriminate slaughter of civilians, the killing of women and children and innocent bystanders, by chemical weapons is a moral obscenity,” adding, “If we choose to live in a world where a thug and a murderer like Bashar al-Assad can gas thousands of his own people with impunity, even after the United States and our allies said no, and then the world does nothing about it, there will be no end to the test of our resolve and the dangers …”

Wonderful rhetoric, delivered with a  passion Kerry customarily reserved for criticisms of America, but the Secretary of State found himself once again out of sync with the West Wing. The original expectation that a high-tech, visually exciting attack would revitalize the president’s sagging popularity and supplant discussion of his scandals, turned out not to poll or focus-group well. Congress refused to support an attack on Syria, the American people overwhelmingly opposed the idea, and only John McCain, himself freshly back from Syria where he accidentally posed for publicity photos with internationally wanted terrorists, backed the plan. Obama went all wobbly, as Margaret Thatcher would say, and Kerry was reduced to explaining that any American interdiction of Assad’s “moral obscenity” would be “unbelievably small.”  In the event, even an unbelievably small response failed to win support and the idea was scotched. Apparently the Bamster decided that living “in a world where a thug and a murderer like Bashar al-Assad can gas thousands of his own people with impunity” was preferable to any action that might further depress his poll numbers, and in the end only Vladimir Putin came away looking good—but on to Tehran.

Are we there yet?

images futureYes, Wooferines, we are here. We are now at that portion of this exposition that deals with our title subject. Relieved? Confused? We trekked this circuitous route because unless we had, it would seem entirely bizarre that we are now at the point of compounding a concatenation of apparent blunders committed across the Middle East with the manifest idiocy of a nuclear treaty that places American trust and security in the laps of the mad mullahs of Tehran, even as they race to build a nuclear arsenal fit for exportation to terror groups around the planet, and presumably for use against Israel. Why are we thus involved? Are the president and his advisers morons? Are they, as Mitt Romney liked to imply, simply in over their heads? Not really. They are ardent supporters of Islamic extremism and anti-Zionism who resent American influence and power and seek to reduce both wherever possible while advancing the cause of a Sharia-based caliphate around the world.

Consider also the dialectical properties of the Iranian peace initiative. War didn’t work out in Syria—in fact the whole war idea blew up in the president’s face, working ultimately to the profound advantage of Vladimir Putin who emerged as the rational peacenik in the room. So what to do? There is a certain psychopathic genius detectable in the administration’s decision to shift tactics without abandoning its strategy. See it? Instead of further destabilizing the Middle East by staging a war—which didn’t go over well at all—why not proceed to further destabilize the Middle East by staging a peace? Just as phony, but not so overtly appalling. Everybody likes peace.

Miss me yet? Ahmadinejad: gone, and largely forgotten.

Miss me yet? Ahmadinejad: gone, and largely forgotten.

Fortuitously, the oleaginous Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who specialized in appearing unmistakably evil and unmistakably crazy simultaneously departed the scene in Iran making way for the rise to power of the 7th president Hassan Rouhani, Islamic cleric, academic, attorney and diplomat. And the same media bobble heads who celebrated the arrival of “Arab Spring” before the Egyptian and Libyan bloodbaths, turned to celebrating the transition in Tehran, solemnly assuring one another that Rouhani was a new kind of Iranian leader—a moderate, a man of the world, a fellow who could be reasoned with, particularly in matters of international affairs. The Washington Post rushed a story to press telling us “5 Things to know about Iran’s new president,” among them that change would be incremental, that he is seen [by some unnamed entity, presumably the Washington Post] as predisposed to diplomacy and pragmatism, and that he is “perhaps the most moderate candidate [of] the country’s six-way presidential race.” So it’s all good, right?

"I don't bluff!"

“I don’t bluff!”

Obama making a nuclear deal with the blatantly psychotic Ahmadinejad would have shocked the smarmiest silver-pony-tailed nuke freeze advocate right out of hisBirkenstocks, but why not reach a concordance with a new president—one “predisposed to diplomacy and pragmatism?” That sounds perfectly fine, doesn’t it? Irresistible, in fact. And look at the baggage this unloads for Our Beloved Leader. Obama has always been adamant that under his administration Iran would not be permitted to acquire nuclear weapons. As recently as May of 2012 he told the press, “I ….don’t, as a matter of sound policy, go around advertising exactly what our intentions are. But….when the United States says it is unacceptable for Iran to have a nuclear weapon, we mean what we say.” The president punctuated this declaration by curtly adding, “I don’t bluff!” Which assertion must have seemed less hollow before his Syrian retreat.

Given that a man of the president’s stripe can claim that he will take aggressive action to prevent an Iranian A-bomb only until the Iranians do, in fact, have an A-bomb, and must then back peddle, parse, and revise his arguments in view of the fact that he would never dream of doing anything about Iran having an A-bomb, how very pleasant to have an opportunity to allow the Iranians to develop an A-bomb after all, but not before promising not to do so in an absolutely worthless protocol. Sheer genius.

The Geneva detour

Geneva--the proper setting for such humbugs--with its famous Jet D'eau--it squirts in the air, see?

Geneva–the proper setting for such humbugs–with its famous Jet d’Eau–it squirts in the air, see?

The scene now shifts to Geneva, where everybody knows all serious peace negotiations are supposed to happen, and where, therefore, the current Kabuki performance is being staged. And as the current negotiations with Iran dragged into the weekend prior to Thanksgiving, Secretary Kerry (say, that rhymes) was hard at work hammering out a deal with Iranian foreign minister Mohammed Javad Zarif, (doesn’t rhyme) and just to add a veneer of legitimacy to the charade, dignitaries from six world powers have been invited to participate.  The idea is remarkably simple, once one cuts through the diplomatese. Iran doesn’t like our sanctions, and Obama doesn’t like armed confrontations with people he admires and who might be somewhat hard to beat—so we will dramatically reduce our sanctions, and Iran, for its part, will pretend not to be developing a nuclear bomb. Nobody will keep track of much, anymore than anybody paid much attention to whether Syria was turning its chemical weapons over to Putin after the news cycle shifted—and when Iran detonates a nuke, Jay Carney will soberly inform the Washington Press Corpse that the President is “shocked, and profoundly disappointed,” or some such eyewash.  The current theatrics in Geneva will produce a treaty all right—in fact by Sunday, Iran had agreed to “freeze” its nuclear development for six months. And there will be a spiffier sounding accord reached any minute now, and all done up in bundles of interim agreements, continuing rounds of negotiation, and “more comprehensive talks to follow.” You know the drill.  But do you remember the blue print for this fiasco? The template was created during the Clinton Administration.  Only the names have been changed, and not even all of the names!

The return of the “badass” negotiator!

Alright--the original architect!

Albright–the original architect!

In 1994 Madeleine Albright, Bill Clinton’s Secretary of state, met with representatives of North Korea to discuss that outlaw nation’s announced intention to develop a nuclear bomb and build rockets to put it on. The problem was simple. North Korea didn’t like sanctions and we didn’t want them to develop a nuclear bomb, at least not during Clinton’s term of office. After sufficient dithering and posturing, North Korea signed the “Agreed Format,” stating that it would freeze its plutonium program. For our part, we lifted our sanctions, so that North Korea could begin receiving aid from America while, naturally, continuing to develop  atomic bombs and rockets to put them on. But back in ’94 it may be remembered, Albright was the toast of the town for pulling off so marvelous a diplomatic feat. Exactly the same process, using exactly the same mechanisms, is now underway vis-à-vis Iran—and it will produce exactly the same results. The cardinal difference being: North Korea is not a stone’s throw from Israel.

"Badass" Wendy Sherman--gosh, she even looks like Kathleen Sebelius, how can we doubt her?

“Badass” Wendy Sherman–gosh, she even looks like Kathleen Sebelius, how can we doubt her?

Israel’s Benjamin Netanyahu has rather understandably declined to play a part in this chimera, and the Obamans are forging ahead “over Israeli objections” which can hardly surprise anybody, especially Netanyahu. Anyone who doubts that the liberal media are determined to ooh and ahhh over whatever pile of rubbish eventually emerges from the current exertions in Geneva should consider a CNN article from November 21st, hailing the efforts of “badass” negotiator (this is actually CNN’s phrase)  Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs, Wendy Sherman. And what makes Sherman so “badass” in CNN’s point of view? Why, her experience as a razor sharp negotiator, that’s what. And where did she hone her awesome skills? Why, “as counselor to then-Secretary of State Madeleine Albright…at the table when the United States sought a deal with North Korea to curb the development and proliferation of Pyongyang’s long-range missiles in exchange for substantial aid and civilian nuclear reactors.” Oh, and that worked out well! Thanks, CNN, you never disappoint.

Former Nobel Peace Prize winner Arafat –about whom the nicest thing WOOF can think to say is, he kind of looks like Ringo Starr.

The pragmatist…

As for Hassan Rouhani, WOOF predicts he will win the Nobel Peace Prize, probably along with John Kerry as soon as this travesty is inked, and, of course, before he presides over any launched nuclear warheads. It is important in this regard to understand that Rouhani is no more a moderate than was Ahmadinejad—or previous Nobel Peace Prize winner Yasser Arafat, for that matter. He’s just the least conspicuously grizzled of the three. Rouhani, in fact, is an old revolutionary hand who flew into Tehran with Khomeini and assisted in the creation of the Islamo-facistic theocracy that is today’s Iran. He held considerable influence during the storming of the American embassy and the taking of 52 American hostages. Later, as chairman of the Iranian National Security Council he helped plan the 1994 bombing of the Jewish Cultural Center in Buenos Aires. He almost certainly oversaw the bombing of the Khobar Towers in Saudi Arabia, and must have known of and approved countless other acts of terror and assassination. His anti-American and anti-Israeli ravings are matters of record.

In 2002, Rouhani submitted to an interview with ABC News during which he insisted that President Bush was under the influence of the Zionist lobby which, he explained, fashioned American foreign policy, and added that Hezbollah was merely a “legitimate political group.” But here’s the best part: Rouhani is a long-time nuclear enthusiast and a guiding force in developing Iran’s plans for a nuclear arsenal He served as Iran’s principle nuclear negotiator between August 2003 and October 2005. During his tenure he gave a speech to Iran’s Supreme Cultural Revolution Council, in which he reassured council members that his silky tone and warm demeanor during nuclear negotiations with Britain, France and Germany were purely tactical artifices aimed at buying time for Iran while that nation’s nuclear program proceeded at full throttle. “While we were talking with the Europeans in Tehran,” Rouhani gloated, “we were installing equipment in parts of the [nuclear conversion] facility in Isfahan. By creating a calm environment, we were able to complete the work there.”

Simlin' Hassan Rouhani --the man with the plan.

Smilin’ Hassan Rouhani –the man with the plan.

Got that?  Let’s review. The Obama regime has dusted off the blueprint for diplomacy that led to North Korea putting A-bombs on the tips of intercontinental ballistic missiles. And to ensure the blueprint is followed exactly, it has placed the same chief negotiator who oversaw the North Korean catastrophe in charge of negotiating what amounts to an identical set of accords with the Iranians. And the Iranian leader with whom these points are being negotiated is an experienced nuclear negotiator himself who is on record boasting about the fact that he views negotiation as a means of buying time while his country’s nuclear program advances unchecked. If you are still asking yourself why this doesn’t bother anybody on our side, please remind yourself that nobody on our side is on our side. Except Israel, of course, whose doom we may well be sealing, and not, mind you, without criminal cognizance of the fact.

Chief White House strategist Valerie Jarrett--some have suggested she holds Israel in contempt simply because she's Iranian and a communist--but is this the face of an anti-Semite?

Chief White House strategist Valerie Jarrett–some have suggested she holds Israel in contempt simply because she’s Iranian and a communist–but we ask you, is this the face of an anti-Semite?

Is it any wonder that White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough recently characterized the Geneva negotiations as “a great opportunity for Iran?” And an opportunity also for Obama to rekindle the adulation of his lapdog media who will surely follow any announcement of a treaty with starry-eyed declarations that peace is at hand, and orgasmic asseverations that no one can any longer hold Our Beloved Leader undeserving of his Nobel Prize….all of which will remind the discerning how perceptive was Sir John Harington (1561-1612) to write:

Benghazi Decoded? WOOF Sees Through the Blind Sheikh Conspiracy

In "Springtime for Terror" Forum on August 24, 2013 at 2:34 pm

Mursi_Benghazi_Fire

Gentle readers, WOOF cannot take credit for the views and insights flooding the blogosphere on the subject of Benghazi, although frequent readers know we have maintained a steady interest in the topic. What we will take partial credit for (in case the NSA is curious) is putting all the pieces garnered from various new-media resources into the particular mosaic presented here–not original, but more encompassing, we believe, than other presentations of the latest evidence. We are chiming in now because we have followed these interwoven stories, verified what we can, and gone for broke intuitively; and we are ready now to present our hypothesis.  Despite what many of our allies in the right-wing blogosphere have been suggesting, WOOF has always insisted that the Benghazi cover up was never about protecting a CIA operation running weapons to Syrian rebels. This explanation never made any sense to us because Obama’s stated policy was one of support for the rebels, so why wouldn’t he be supporting them with weaponry? The average American is too distracted by sports and show business personalities to marvel at the administration’s penchant for finding the dirtiest rats in the manure pile and consistently throwing its weight behind them.

Miss you, Willmoore!

It is generally and legitimately accepted that Bashar Assad is a butcher and an America- hating creep, so why not back his opposition? (The answers are manifold, but too sophisticated for most Americans to dilate on—try this one on for brevity’s sake: They’re mainly Al Qaeda!) But our point is, catching the CIA transferring weapons to Assad’s opponents would hardly cause a ripple of distress across that great, supinely bovine entity, the American public.  To appreciate the point it may be necessary to at least temporarily abandon a standard aphorism on the Right, namely that the American people are wise “in their hips” (as Willmoore Kendall used to put it), and while sometimes misguided are generally  savvy and capable. Alas, WOOF has long maintained that the average American citizen these days wouldn’t know the Declaration of Independence from the Communist Manifesto—which fact was amply demonstrated last November.  We readily attribute this state of affairs to the infiltration of public education by communist ideologues, which nowadays also goes unnoticed because Americans are too distracted by sports and show business personalities; but we said that already.

That’s show biz!

A still from "The Innocence of Muslims"--were there any good tunes?

A still from “The Innocence of Muslims”–were there any good tunes?

So if Our Beloved Helmsman wasn’t covering for the CIA, which is a difficult concept to envision in any instance, why then contrive the cockamamie fiction that “the Arab street” was whipped into a frenzy by the cinematic efforts of an immigrant Coptic Christian named Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, a small time check forger and paroled meth cook, as well as the writer, producer, and director of an ostensibly epic two-hour movie entitled The Innocence of Muslims that WOOF determined only ten people ever saw? Why send Susan Rice out to give serial TV interviews citing the film as the basis for the attack on the American mission in Benghazi? And this even as Dear Leader solemnly informed the United Nations that no matter how distasteful the film in question, (and no matter that nobody ever heard of it prior to the administration spending a week advertising it in the press) we have freedom of expression in the USA so that even the awesome and mighty ‘Bamster could not reign in the likes of Nakoula Nakoula before his movie ignited the firestorm of protest that consumed our consulate, Ambassador Stevens, his aide, and two SEALs. And one additional thought, Woofketeers; didn’t the whole “it’s because of that movie” explanation seem rehearsed and coordinated–almost as though prepared in advance? But how could the administration have been prepared such a red herring in advance, unless it was designed to explicate the incident–an incident that seemingly nobody could have predicted?

Framed filmaker Nakoula--all the skill of Ed Wood but none of the luck!

Framed filmmaker –all the skill of Ed Wood but none of the luck!

And to add a final absurdity, Nakoula Nakoula was tracked down, arrested, and imprisoned for—what? For violating his parole, supposedly, but mainly because he was the hapless sap tapped to be the regime’s fall guy. Yes, Nakoula Nakoula (WOOF’s man of the year for 2012) was railroaded just prior to the election and has yet to see the light of day despite the fact that even the White House long ago jettisoned its cover story as indefensibly dumb… a fact now apparent to everyone except Hailey Branson-Potts of the subversive Los Angeles Times who as recently as a week ago wrote that Nakoula’s film “sparked rioting across the Muslim world.”  Some folks just never get the memo!

Candy Crowley, debating Mitt Romney so Obama doesn't have to!

Candy Crowley, debating Mitt Romney so Obama didn’t have to!

Surely an administration incapable of inventing a better cover story must be adjudged so hopelessly inept that a rational nation would laugh the oafs to derision—but no, the story was simply changed. You may recall when objective debate moderator Candy Crowley reconstructed history by interrupting Mitt Romney in mid-debate to insert (inaccurately) that Mr. Obama had blamed terrorists even at the outset of the Benghazi outrage, and this is now the “official”” truth, the movie story having been flushed down the memory hole, along with all those appearances by Susan Rice, Secretary Clinton’s repeated statements–even to victims’ families–the president’s solemn avowals at the UN, and the indignities heaped upon the luckless Nakoula Nakoula. But reasonable adults with memory spans of more than a few weeks may reasonably wonder why such a story was confected in the first place—what was being covered up if not the CIA’s weapons smuggling?

And then there is the additional question begged by the White House’s simple failure to respond to the assault regardless of its cause. Why, with the devastating firepower of an AC-130U aircraft at its immediate disposal, and numerous ground forces within striking distance of the event, did the president eat dinner, talk on the phone with Benjamin Netanyahu and trundle off to bed leaving his un-elected aide Valerie Jarrett to order everyone in the region to do nothing? It seems inadequate simply to postulate that Rappin’ Preezy is so pro-Islamic and so venomously anti-American that sheer spitefulness drove him to inaction. After all, even a geopolitical flyweight like the Bamster could foresee embarrassment down that rocky road! No, something far more complex than a snotty attitude and considerably less naive than paralysis born of pure shock was at work that night!

Our man Morsi!

But, the regime’s support of Morsi in Egypt is explicable precisely in terms of our executive branch’s snotty attitude—as is the insane amount of dedication Obama and Her Magnificence (we mean Hillary—we justg9510.20_Morsi.cover like Tina Brown’s gushy encomium for her so much we use it all the time) put into bum-rushing President Mubarak from office. Mubarak committed the twin sins of being an American ally and a man who was willing to tolerate Israel, and to Obama such sympathies in the heart of a foreign leader are grounds for his unceremonious ousting.  So out indeed went Mubarak, rug jerked from beneath his heals only weeks after Obama praised him as a loyal friend and trusted ally, and in came the Muslim Brotherhood. Again rationalists persisted in wondering why a pro-American Egyptian leader, albeit a despotic one, was less desirable to the Obamans than a slathering brute spewing anti-Semitism and excoriations of America with alternating breaths; but the administration professed delight at the installment of Morsi (whom Reuters briefly called Mursi and whom the president’s own press releases unaccountably called Morsy)  and the ever-obedient American news media continued to rhapsodize over  the miracle of “Arab Spring,” even as Morsi and his all-girl band of revisionists rewrote the Egyptian constitution to eliminate all viable dissent, denounced the holocaust as a hoax perpetrated by Jews, and called for the destruction of America, France, and other European nations because they were supporters of Zionism.

Not to worry; Kerry can see Cairo from his poop deck.

Not to worry; Kerry can see Cairo from his poop deck.

When the streets filled with Egyptians calling for Morsi’s expulsion from office, the Obama White House could not have made it plainer that Morsi was their man in Cairo, that his continuation in office was the desired course in Washington, and that the Muslim Brotherhood represented the duly elected democratic government. When the Egyptian Military began to make manifest its intention to drive Morsi from the Presidential Palace by force if necessary, the Obama administration issued a series of petulant threats that, emanating from any other American president, would have been taken seriously. Woofketeers will also recall that John Kerry was so confident after his brief stopover in Cairo that Morsi would remain in power, he jetted home to Massachusetts and boarded his yacht for some sun and fun. He was lounging on the poop deck, as it were, when the Egyptian Army escorted Morsi from the palace and tossed him into the slam.

Remember too that all of this, in much the same order and fashion, happened first in Libya where Obama sent NATO and a sizable contingent of the American military to bomb Muammar Qadhafi out of power, (Qadhafi having withdrawn from the exportation of terror after Reagan blew up his air force and sank his navy back in the ’80s) in order to replace him with a confederacy of cutthroats whose political action wing appears to include such violent Islamic terror organizations as Ansar al-Sharia (an Al Qaeda affiliate and the principle actor in the September 11th attacks in Benghazi). So Qadhafi was captured by the forces of Islamic terrorism (with more than a little irony, WOOF grants), strapped to the hood of a car and given a grand tour of his home town of Sirte while being pummeled, stabbed and shot. Memorably, Mrs. Clinton (Her Magnificence) announced his death, braying, “We came, we saw, he died!!” even as another Arab nation was destabilized completely and handed over to the most rabid elements within its geographic confines by the Obama administration’s policies. There is no question that Obama and Clinton acted purposefully in these instances. The object was to remove neutral or friendly governments and replace them with powder-keg consortia of radical scatterbrains whose qualifications in the eyes of the White House were their uncompromising hatred of Israel and their outspoken detestation of America.

Her Magnificence relaxed among friends at the good ol' CFR.

Her Magnificence relaxes among friends at the good ol’ CFR.

Arab Spring next sprung in Syria, where it may be viewed as a kind of extra dividend in this cavalcade of hits. On his own merits Assad might be considered more than amply rabid to retain his position in accordance with the Obama/Clinton plan, but the opportunity presented itself to replace him with a more adventuresome and less dunderheaded pack of authentic Islamo-fascists more inclined than Assad to fanatical acts of militancy and more capable of rousing the street rabble in a fashion dear to the heart of a community organizer from bloody Chicago. But for our purposes let Syria pass for the moment as a sideshow whilst we focus on the Cairo-Benghazi connection. But remember, it may be back with a bang and a boom if Dear Leader feels threatened by revelations such as those that follow! (See what we mean here.)

Connection? Yes, it is now widely reported (just as it is completely suppressed in the mainstream) that the attack on the American consulate in Libya occurred under the direction of Mohamed Morsi, in Egypt. But why, you ask, would Morsi go to such lengths to alienate his loyal supporters in the Obama Administration? Why on earth carry out a wanton assault on American property and personnel in Libya when the Obama White House was falling all over itself heaping praise and weaponry on the “democratically elected” Morsi regime? Well, you came to the right place with those questions, beloved readers!

Cherchez la blind Sheikh!

sheik

Sheikh Omar Abdel-Rahman, not just another pretty face!

First, consider that a long-standing goal of Mohammed Morsi was the release of no less a person than Sheikh Omar Abdel-Rahman, aka, “the blind sheikh,” who masterminded the original assault on the World Trade Towers during the Clinton administrations—the one that didn’t work because the explosion, while it killed six and wounded nearly a thousand, was insufficient to bring down the skyscraper. There is no doubt here in the WOOF cave that Dear Leader and Her Magnificence were also anxious to see the Sheikh free, subscribing as they do, to the madcap political postulates of liberation theology, social-justice theory, and the anti-historical belief that expanding American “colonial power” precipitated all problems everywhere around the world (and caused global warming and, you know…really bad stuff). As for the sources of opinion that matter most to Obama and often seem to dictate his actions, the Sheikh’s release was deemed nothing short of imperative. Let us briefly examine the wellsprings of radical opinion that inform Obama’s weltanschauung:

It must be born in mind that Dear Leader's public image changed, but never his  attitudes.

It must be born in mind that Dear Leader’s public image changed, but never his attitudes.

Return with WOOF now to those thrilling days of yesteryear, to 1950, to be precise, when the House Un-American Activities Committee denounced the National Lawyers Guild as the “legal bulwark of the Communist Party in America” and called for the disbarment of its membership. Sadly, this never occurred, and to this day the NLG maintains a high profile as the organization most likely to rush to the aid of any proven subversive or anti-American villain. When the Occupy Movement was caught making bombs, the NLG rushed to its defense. The Guild is also deeply invested in Code Pink, whose founder and most prominent member is also an Obama fundraiser and adviser. The Guild’s raison d-etre was probably best described by one of its founders, Rutgers University School of Law Professor Arthur Kinoy, who described the duty of the radical lawyer as promotion of the coming anti-capitalist revolution and the slow but deliberate weakening of the legal system’s ability to function effectively against law-breaking radicals. The fact that the NLG still exists and flourishes is a tribute to its success thus far.

Meant for one another

It should surprise no one that the terrorist Weather Underground movement and the NLG became thoroughly entwined during the radical ‘60s and ’70s. One prominent crusader in the imagescause of the radical Left and a longtime member of the Guild was Leonard Boudin. His daughter, Kathy, was imprisoned for 20 years after her Weather Underground group gunned down 4 police officers in the aftermath of perpetrating the Nyack, New York, Brinks job back in 1981. She is now free and a professor at Columbia University School of Social Work—her son, as most Woofketeers are already aware, was raised by Bill Ayers and his wife, Bernardine Dohrn, also a Weather Underground communist. Ayers, of course, is the Pentagon-bombing Weather Underground radical who went on to teach at the University of Illinois, set the stage for Obama’s entry into politics and ghost-write Obama’s first “autobiography”—(which, to Ayers’s credit, is the readable one). When Kathy Boudin’s comrades went up on charges of murder and robbery, the lawyer who defended comrade David Gilbert (cop killer) was comrade Lynne Stewart. In this capacity Stewart had ample opportunity to philosophically cross-pollinate with the rag-tag urban guerillas even as she was defending them in court (unsuccessfully, we are pleased to note). Thus, common cause was indisputably made between the Underground brats of the post-60s radical left and the dedicated communists of the National Lawyers Guild. They were, in effect, meant for one another.

Lynne Stewart--not just another pretty face

Lynne Stewart–not just another pretty face

Lynne Stewart enjoyed a frenetic career defending various terrorists, airplane hijackers and radical activists, finally taking the Blind Sheik as a client in 1993. She did so announcing that “the only hope for change in Egypt is the fundamentalist movement” (by which she definitely did not mean Jerry Falwell), and insisting that her client (whose plans also included blowing up the Lincoln Tunnel, the Holland Tunnel, and the George Washington Bridge) had been framed by the feds. (This is called the Alger-Hiss defense: When all the evidence proves you are guilty, simply explain that all the evidence was fabricated by the FBI, even if doing so would defy all current technologies, and/or require time travel). True to form, she lost the case, and was shortly afterwards arrested for passing orders from her client on to his terror network in Egypt. She is consequently in prison. But radical Islamic movements in Egypt (as best represented by the Muslim Brotherhood) remain every bit as anxious to see the Blind Sheikh walk free—they have, in fact, made him an Egyptian folk hero. In a speech in Cairo’s Tahrir Square on June 30, 2012, Mohamed Morsi vowed to free Omar Abdel-Rahman, (the Blind Sheikh to the rest of us) from his American prison. How did he propose to effect such an implausible release?

Apparently Rep. King was not the only one to get the tip!

Apparently Rep. King was not the only one to get the tip!

Consider that what now existed was a consortium of like-minded ex-Weather Undergrounders, Guild members, and higher-ups in the Morsi regime, all determined to free Sheikh Omar Abdel-Rahman.  Consider too that the newly ensconced Obama administration was, by virtue of its own radical philosophies and communist roots, entirely sympatico with this objective. Upon taking power in Cairo, The Morsi government placed the Obama administration on notice that it expected to see the Sheikh released. Representative Peter King (R-N.Y.), confirms that this pressure was very real, and that while Obama was keeping the communications in this regard secret, he was considering (unthinkable as it may seem) complying with the demand. This sounds insane, of course, but we are talking about a cadre of radical-chic Marxists and nihilists now occupying the West Wing whose credo is so far to the radical left of the nation’s political center that most Americans cannot bring themselves to consider it, any more than mainstream Democrat voters can bring themselves to consider the fact that the party they grew up in is now an engine of socialist sedition that threatens their liberties, the prefered term for all of this being “hope and change.” But by tracing the major influences on Obama’s thinking and policy formulation, we soon reach a nexus of pro-Islamist, pro-communist and anti-American sentiment of such intensity that releasing the Sheikh comes to seem less a plausibility then a dialectical  inevitability.

Our beloved readers may suppose that no one among Obama’s advisers, no matter how loopy, would be so naive as to believe such a release could be effected unilaterally. Even the posterior-osculating doyens of contemporary post-journalism would have to blink once or twice if that happened. Charlie Rose would have to do a lot of chin rubbing and throat clearing before he could begin to perceive the sapience of such a demarche, even with, say, Cass Sunstein in the opposite chair, patiently guiding him through the paralogisms. And FOX, still dangerous when aroused, might do more than blink. That such a release was simply in keeping with a world view shared by the President, the communists who raised him, his closest advisers, his longtime comrades in the movement, and his fellow travelers back in Chicago, would elude everyone largely because the Obama image is so sheep-dipped by the president’s pet media, it is impossible for most citizens to retain his serial seditions in focus, besides which they go mainly unreported.

03obama-team-open-live

The usual suspects.

But WOOF knows that earlier this year the release of the Blind Sheikh was discussed seriously during a highly confidential planning session that, despite the administration’s best efforts, was actually reported here and there in the press. The New York Post declared last January that, “the Obama administration is weighing the release of blind Sheikh Omar Abdel-Rahman — the spiritual adviser to the 1993 World Trade Center bombers — in a stunning goodwill gesture toward Egypt” even as Andrew McCarthy, the prosecutor who put Rahman behind bars, fretted aloud, “I believe there may already be a nod-and-wink agreement in place.” And there was–of that we are certain.

The Working Lunch?

What WOOF does not know, embarrassingly enough, is where the agreement was finalized.  Several White House locations were suggested by our cherished sources, but only one site was named twice—and by sources with no knowledge of one another.  Thus, if we credit the numbers, a select group of Obama’s and Hillary’s most malignant functionaries were read into the “swap plot” at California Senator Dianne Feinstein’s 7 million-dollar “Willow Oaks” compound at 3300 Nebraska Avenue NW.  Why, you may ask, was such a highly confidential meeting not held at the White House?  It bothered us too. So we asked.

Feinstein-DC-Home-e1384207731693

“Willow Oaks” or Home of the Depraved…where the final plan was green-lighted?

What a co-inky-dink!

Our sources generally agreed on the reason Obama prefered an  unofficial gathering site. We were reminded that the administration was undergoing a great deal of criticism in those days for refusing to make the White House visitor logs public. Trivial? Judicial Watch filed freedom-of-information requests to no avail, and finally launched a suit to force the President to reveal his guest list. The lists were finally released, but were so riddled with holes and gaps that no one was satisfied except Obama, who declared the release proof of his administration’s unprecedented transparency. And if you think that’s funny, get this: visitors who were not redacted included Jeremiah Wright, Michael Moore, William Ayers, and Angela Davis, but reporters were mollified by the Regime’s assurances that these visitors simply happened to have the same names as famous radicals, whereas in fact, each was a harmless, average, non-communist American; in other words, nothing like the President’s buddies.

True, the most heated moments of the visitor-list imbroglio occurred in 2011, while Benghazi happened in 2012, but the White House remained sensitive to the evidentiary nature of the guest lists and therefore, we are informed, switched to holding highly confidential (read: subversive) meetings in locations hospitable to whatever treasonable hijinx were in the offing, the better to keep them undocumented. Thus, we are told, the Feinstein residence was chosen to host the final swap-plot conference. We continue to seek additional confirmation.

A nod and a wink! (The swap plot goes hot)

index hill winkBut no matter where the scheme was concretized, more than a bit of coy diplomatic theater was planned in cahoots with the Morsi regime. Obama’s disappearing act during the battle in Benghazi, Valerie Jarrett taking the controls, the.blanket stand-down orders issuing from Jarrett, who could not constitutionally give them but who was obeyed anyway, all point to one stark reality: The assault on the American mission in Benghazi was planned not only by the Morsi government, but also by the Obama Regime. The idea was fairly simple, at least on paper. Morsi gave the orders, Ansar al-Sharia carried out the attack. The target would be “defended” by locals whom a complicit Hillary Clinton had placed in charge of security at the consulate, knowing they would turn their coats or flee at the first volley. Repeated requests for reinforced security from the unwitting Ambassador Stevens had been repeatedly denied by Clinton in the run up to the event,.and nobody has ever offered an explanation for so emphatic a display of indifference. Secretary Clinton has been denounced by critics as stupefyingly negligent in this regard, but she was, in fact, ensuring that her friend, Stevens was a sitting duck. The plan was to keep defenses at the consulate local and permeable. But the plan was never to kill Stevens (who necessarily remained out of the loop). Rather, Ansar al-Sharia was ordered by Morsi to abduct the ambassador, and hold him hostage. He would be sequestered (you should forgive the expression) by members of Ansar al-Sharia (posing as irascible local cinema critics), and the Blind Sheikh would be demanded in exchange for his safe release.

Back in Washington DC the following course of events would unfold: Obama would announce that locals, incensed by an anti-Muslim film made by a gosh-darned Coptic Christian, hadObamaWinkingAPwideCrpd250.jpg.cms gotten lucky and seized the ambassador on the spur of the moment. The CIA under the direction of General Petraeus who, (regardless of whether he was or was not aware of the scheme) was fully aware that the Administration had the drop on him and could leak his affair to the press on a whim, would prove obligingly sluggish at ascertaining where Stevens was being held by the ostensibly seething locals, so that —gloriosky!—our loyal friends and trusted allies in the Morsi government would establish communications with spokespeople representing the Ambassador’s kidnappers, and through Cairo’s good offices we would learn that Ambassador Stevens was unharmed, and could be repatriated for the low, low price of one slightly used blind sheikh!  At this juncture, the full voice of the lap-poodle media would be lent to yammering unqualified support for the exchange on humanitarian grounds. Stories would appear extolling the wisdom of  allowing diplomacy to triumph over the obdurate bellicosity of the Bush era, and reminding Americans that, heck, the Sheikh was about half dead anyway, never really posed a threat, was just an old, misguided, half nutty one-eyed fuddy-dud, and besides—we wouldn’t be negotiating with terrorists because the aggrieved “locals” were just—well–aggrieved locals, furious about that awful Islamophobic film that nobody ever saw, but which was probably our fault to begin with. Thus, by the time the Sheikh was exchanged for a grateful if haggard Christopher Stevens, even the more moderate opinionists at FOX would be calling it a show of good faith to the Arab Street, and a moment of heroic statesmanship in which compassion o’er ruled our militaristic impulses while those intractable habitudes of yore that Hillary liked to sneeringly denounce as “cowboy diplomacy” yielded to the enlightened wisdom of our brave young President. .

Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods--SEALs killed defending Ambassador Stevens

Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods–former SEALs killed defending Ambassador Stevens

That’s how it was supposed to go, but some “friction,” as Clausewitz would say, showed up in the plan. President Obama has never had much luck with SEALs. Early in his presidency they shot a bunch of Somalian pirates without direct presidential orders– and Rappin’ Preezy, while taking credit for the gutsy action, retaliated by bringing other SEALs up on trumped up charges, most notably for giving a captured terrorist a fat lip. After SEAL Team 6 killed Osama in Pakistan some of them were undiplomatic enough to differ with the presidential version of events. Subsequently, Team 6 members were killed in a shoot down of a helicopter in Afghanistan, said to be the recipient of a “lucky hit” by unknown ground forces. Family members held a press conference suggesting that, at minimum, the government placed the SEALs in unnecessary danger by violating security policies and publicizing the unit’s role in the bin Laden raid.

God only knows…

The President certainly seems to suffer from bad SEAL karma. As almost everyone now knows, on the night of the encounter two former SEALs rallied to the Ambassador’s aid in defiance of the stand-down orders from Washington, thus wrecking the plan by throwing everything off-script and defending the Ambassador so tenaciously that a vastly more violent exchange of fire and a far greater Muslim body count than anticipated knocked the swap scenario into a cocked hat. The exact cause of Steven’s death has never been revealed, but it is possible that he was wounded in the fight, or simply slaughtered in the immediate aftermath by terrorists who, having been promised a cake walk, were furious about the unexpectedly savage nature of the SEALs’  resistance. Whatever the details of Stevens’s death, the first “press leak” that the events of 9/11/12 were an abduction scenario gone bad came not from the bobble-heads at the major networks, but rather from Al Qaeda itself, whose affiliate website Dhu-al-Bajadin lamented back in March that:“The plan was based on abduction and exchange of high-level prisoners–however, the operation took another turn, for a reason God only knows.”

"The operation took another turn." and Ambassador Stevens

“The operation took another turn.” and Ambassador Stevens health took a turn for the terminal. Maybe somebody didn’t brief Dear Leader about Murphy’s Law?

Yes, gentle readers, however bizarre, we live in an era in which one can learn more from Dhu-al-Bajadin than from CNN, NBC, CBS or ABC. Things “took another turn” for Obama too—no prisoner exchange, a dead ambassador, a blanket stand-down order to explain, and even worse, no more Morsi, whose staying power the White House clearly over-estimated. So what happens if Morsi, whose own army had the good sense to drag out of the presidential palace and toss into a jail cell, goes on trial and talks about all this? Is it any wonder Our Beloved Helmsman is sparing no effort in negotiating his release? State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki, who seems to catch all the duty at State whenever something ludicrous needs to be said, has repeatedly called for Morsi to be released from custody, urging Egypt to “end…all restrictive measures considering Morsi.” Psaki refused to say why the U.S. seeks Morsi’s freedom so anxiously—especially when people like Dr. Shakil Afridi, the hero who helped the CIA zero in on Bin Laden and was then given up by Team Obama without so much as a backward glance, continue to rot in prison.  Psaki (who presumably  knows absolutely nothing about anything) would only say that the U.S. is always concerned with “politically motivated, arbitrary arrests” which assertion may come as a shock to filmmaker Nakoula Nakoula, imprisoned for making the movie nobody ever saw but that Team Obama intended to blame for the Ambassador’s abduction. In the event, the Regime was forced to pivot and blame Nakoula’s obscure video for Stevens’s unanticipated rape, beating, mutilation, and murder–which was a harder sell, obviously.

Watch Syria!

And as for the crew here in the WOOF cave—if our theory of events as presented above is shown to be incorrect, we will apologize (of course) and be adjudged wildly paranoid, no doubt, but that’s nothing new! And if, on the other hand, we are born out by subsequent leaks and revelations—well, that would amount to treason on the parts of Obama, Mrs. Clinton, and everyone else who was aware of the scheme. It can get pretty tricky in the genius business!  (Hint: If the heat from revelations of this type becomes uncomfortable for the White House, you will see Obama getting suddenly tough with Syria–the perfect distraction!) WOOF PRINT

The Unmaking of a President: WOOF bids adieu to Mohammed Morsi!

The strange and not a little tragic telemetry of Muḥammad Muḥammad Mursī ‘Īsá al-‘Ayyāṭ and his all-girl band.

Those who read WOOF consistently already know how diligently we have endeavored to keep our fellow Americans (and those of you in all those other countries—including Egypt– that show up on our little color-demographic map of followers that WordPress so thoughtfully provides) abreast of how President Obama’s Terrorist Spring initiative is blossoming across the Middle East. You may even recall that one of the basic touchstones by which we’ve measured the administration’s success became the ascension to power in Egypt of the insensate, racist, rabidly anti-Semitic America hater, Mohamed Morsi (briefly renamed Mursi by Reuters and the AP, after which he once again became Morsi). Early in Mrs. Clinton’s tenure at State she went straight to work realizing the president’s dream of a an Arab world united in monolithic detestation of the United States, and this meant dramatic changes in American foreign policy. Two vital salients of this master plan involved jerking the rug violently from under the feet of President Mubarak, our long-time ally in Egypt, and going to (unreported but extremely bloody) war with the government of Libya, where Muammar Muhammad Abu Minyar al-Gaddafi, had proved himself a tamely neutral potentate—even going so far as to unilaterally discard his nuclear program as a good faith gesture.

Ronald Reagan going after Gaddafi in 1986

Ronald Reagan going after Gaddafi in 1986

In fact, Gaddafi had been well behaved toward America ever since Ronald Reagan relieved him of his Air Force and about half his Navy back in the ‘80s. But Gaddafi’s neutrality threatened the Obama/Clinton plan for pan-Arabian hostility, and he had to go. Little comprehending the subversive thinking that drove an American administration to arm his Al Qaida-affiliated opponents and drive him from his last stronghold, Gaddafi died slowly, spitting blood and coughing up his last breaths as he was driven around town lashed to the hood of a car while the cheering mob took turns bashing, shooting, or stabbing him. When he was finally pronounced dead, Mrs. Clinton enjoyed one of her occasional spasms of rank loutishness, cackling for the microphones and cameras and bellowing: “We came, we saw, he died!”  It has never been officially reported precisely how many benzodiazepines (or exactly what) are required to put Mrs. Clinton in this annoyingly boisterous condition, but the results are invariably unlovely.

Just dead--Muammar Gaddafi's passing excited merriment from Her Eminence.

Just dead–Muammar Gaddafi’s passing excited merriment from Her Eminence.

As for Mohammed Morsi, he was (arguably) the legitimate winner of the democratic elections in Egypt following the ouster of Mubarak, the pro-American president given the vaudeville hook by Clinton and Obama—another uncomprehending victim of his own faith in America’s support—a support that was unwavering from the Carter Administration through to the Bush administration, but didn’t amount to mouse droppings in the brave new pan-Sharia-law vision of America’s first anti-American president. To the Obama Regime, a Hamas-affiliated hate merchant at the head of the ultra-venomous Muslim Brotherhood was exactly the right guy for the slot, while most informed observers (with the incomprehensible exception of William Kristol) recognized clearly that Mohammed Morsi was much worse news for the West and for Israel than any previous Egyptian leader, including Nasser—but we digress.

Young Mo: The rise to power

donkeyWho was this beamish boy who came to power in Cairo with hope in his heart and an all-girl squad of constitutional revisionists on his payroll? What madness drove him to the very crest of events and saw him almost as quickly swallowed by the onrushing tides of the pre-apocalyptic telos? Well, little Mo started off life in the Sharqia Governorate  of  northern Egypt, a lad of humble, provincial origins who spent his childhood in the village of El-Adwah, north of Cairo, while dad farmed the sands and mother swept them out of their small home, and cooked. Adlerian therapists will wish to know that little Mo was the eldest of five brothers, and told journalists that he remembers being taken to school on the back of a donkey. (Not that the donkey part is Adlerian, we just threw that in—it’s a detail.)

Kissing-Mohamed-Morsi-via-AFP

Spring–when love was fresh and unblemished by reality.

Mohammed grew to college age and dutifully earned his baccalaureate and masters degrees from Cairo University in the ‘70s.  He then made the cardinal error of attending the University of Southern California in 1982, receiving his PhD and, needless to say, sealing into his weltanschauung a level of glowering anti-Americanism. Like so many other victims of modern American university education, our own president among them, Mohammed Morsi emerged an America-loathing extremist and it was in this frame of mind that he returned to Egypt to serve as the head of the department of engineering at Zagazig University (yes that’s really a place). But even while thus engaged, Morsi found time to get elected to parliament in 2000. He served there until 2005 and then ran for president as an independent candidate, only because the savage Muslim Brotherhood to whom he owed his allegiance was banned from the body politic under Mubarak’s comparatively enlightened rule. Mo lost, but became the chief of the Guidance Office of the Muslim Brotherhood. He became a political prisoner during the bloody beginnings of what the Liberal Establishment Media dubbed “Arab Spring,” even though Egyptians aren’t Arabs, they’re Egyptians, but that’s not important now. An Al Qaida led operation broke Morsi out of jail together with most of his fellow Muslim Brotherhood brothers. This daring-do together with his ballsy cell-phone calls to Al Jazeera sufficed to put Mo in the vanguard of the presidential elections that followed the removal of Mubarak by the Obama-Clinton-Al Qaida cartel.

Following the first round of Egypt’s first post-Mubarak presidential election, Morsi had scooped up 25.5 percent of a widely scattered vote, thus he was officially named the winner and confirmed as Egypt’s new president on 24 June 2012, narrowly beating Mubarak’s former prime minister Ahmed Shafik, whom Morsi denounced during the campaign as “a holdover from the Mubarak-era of secular moderation.” And we were definitely not having any more of that!

Rapture at Foggy Bottom

Her Eminence cozies up--the stamp of approval is complete.

“With all that that entails!” Her Eminence cozies up.

In Washington, Hillary Clinton’s State Department was elated by these results, as was Our Beloved Helmsman, for they fit perfectly with the master plan of concretizing anti-Americanism, anti-colonialism and rampant anti-Semitism across the region. Her Eminence flew personally to Egypt to embrace the Morsi administration literally and figuratively, declaring that the United States “supports the full transition to civilian rule with all that that entails.” Meanwhile Morsi was busy dispatching his Prime Minister to Gaza to express solidarity with Hamas, vowing to his supporters that “”The Zionists have no right to the land of Palestine….there is no place for them on the land of Palestine,” and calling Jews “blood-suckers”, “warmongers” and “descendants of apes and pigs.”  This did not raise a Clintonian eyebrow as she posed for stately photos with Morsi in the glittery opulence of the presidential palace.

The F-16 Fighting Falcon

The F-16 Fighting Falcon

Her Eminence added that she was fully supportive of Egypt’s military (which had seized power prior toMorsi’s election) returning “to a purely national security role,” (meaning ‘leave our boy alone, we love him!’) And to emphasize this point while placating his bothersome military, she made Morsi the gift of 200 Abrams Main Battle Tanks and a squadron of F-16s (supersonic jet fighters).  When Morsi further alleged that the Palestinian Authority “was created by the Zionist and American enemies for the sole purpose of opposing the will of the Palestinian people and its interests,” Jay Carney explained that the Egyptian maniac had been “taken out of context.” When Morsi re-contextualized his remarks by explaining that “No reasonable person can expect progress [with Israel]. Either you accept the Zionists and everything they want, or else there is war,” Jay Carney explained that, “U.S. policy is focused on actions, not words.”

The quality of Mursi is unconstrained…

Once constitutionally elected, Morsi wasted no time making it plain that he required broad new powers in order to govern, spread Islamic law and extirpate Israel. To lend a hand, TIME magazine, a subversive pop-cultural American weekly deriving its name from a once world-famous periodical published by Henry Luce, dutifully declared Morsi “The most important man in the Middle East.” Morsi agreed. His next move was to quash the Egyptian constitution as written, which he achieved by staying up all night with an all-female quartet of hand-picked constitutional revisionists, rewriting the document to taste while simultaneously removing from the law any checks the Egyptian courts previously possessed against his authority and nullifying the Constituent Assembly.  This infuriated the Egyptians to such an extent that they chased Morsi out of the palace, but he sneaked in again a few days later and re-established himself. At the time, WOOF wondered in these pages: “Will there be any mercy for Mursi (aka Morsi) now that the aroused citizenry is alert to his having turned up again like the proverbial bad Piastre?”

time

Of course, come to think of it, TIME often makes Bill Kristol look phenomenally accurate.

Well, on the second anniversary of Mubarak’s discomfiture, Morsi, or Mursi, or “Morsy” as President Obama’s news releases inexplicably reference him, was once again subject to  the wrath of the “Arab Street” –let’s call it the Egyptian Street–gathered in Tahrir Square (well, it’s actually a traffic circle but nobody cares).  Like many an overbearing autocrat before him, WOOF’s old nemesis put up a good struggle, but to no avail. Sixty people are dead in the rioting to date, and returns aren’t in from outlying districts. And then there’s the peculiar tradition of raping foreign journalists that began with the beating and rape of American reporter Lara Logan following Mubarak’s overthrow, and was most recently upheld by beating and raping a 22-year-old Dutch journalist on the occasion of Morsi’s ouster. Multiculturally speaking, a local Salafi priest, one Ahmad Mahmoud Abdullah, helpfully explained that women who come to Tahrir Square “have no shame and want to be raped.”

Decline and fall

11. A protester wears a guy fawkes maskMorsi’s riot police fielded tear gas, clubs, bullets, and armored cars against the rioters; evidently none of our 200 Abrams tanks got there in time to be put to use in this effort, thus the crowd continued to gain in strength and determination. One protester seemed to personify the spirit of the rebellion when interviewed by Canadian media. Speaking from behind one of those tawdry V-for-Vendetta masks the 19-year old rioter explained (to the extent that he could be understood through the mask), “I will be coming back here every day until the blood of our martyrs is avenged!” Guy Fawkes, however, is not recognized as an Islamic martyr, he being Catholic, and was neither Egyptian nor Arab. Perhaps WOOF is merely waxing stubborn here in its reluctance to recognize the universality of inanity?

But we digress. Last Wednesday, Egypt’s military chief grew weary of the games and informed Morsi that the Egyptian army was deposing him, replacing him with Nobel laureate Mohamed ElBaradei, who looks like Albert Schweitzer by comparison. Morsi argued, temporized, swore intractable resistance, and then departed quietly, possibly because he knew the army had the Abrams tanks. ElBaradei, however, did not appear as scheduled. Apparently, the ultraconservative Salafi el-Nour party didn’t care for him, possibly due to an anti-rape plank in his presidential platform. Things looked iffy. But Army Chief General Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi, who is anything but, stepped in again and explained the part about Abrams tanks to the Salafi leaders who thereupon withdrew their objections to ElBaradei who was promptly sworn in. In the wake of this occurrence, reports have circulated that ElBaradei’s instillation is in question, but as of now he remains Morsi’s probable successor.

Kerry en route to his yacht–waving good-bye to Mo?

And Mo? He remains under house arrest in a military compound. His fate is yet to be decided (but we bet there’s a big trial). The Obama administration is miserable, they having backed Morsi until he fell over. Right up to the last moment Washington issued earnest entreaties and petulant warnings to the Egyptian army to leave their poster boy for Arab Spring in power, and rushed John Kerry (who served briefly in Vietnam before he was against it) to the region where he evinced support for Morsi by sitting in the same glittery chairs that formerly cushioned Her Eminence’s stately posterior. Kerry returned to the U.S., jaw confidently extruded,  to proclaim America’s firm support for the Morsi regime, and went sailing. He was sunning himself aboard his yacht in Nantucket, Massachusetts when the ax fell on the Egyptian despot. Since this looked inexcusably disconnected and –well—stupid, the Obama administration reverted to type and lied, insisting that Secretary of State John Kerry had not been on his boat. Hapless spokesperson Jen Psaki was tapped to inform the press that Kerry had, in fact, “worked around the clock all day,” the redundancy, one guesses, meant to imply veracity. But when CBS released photos of Kerry on his boat at the time of Morsi’s downfall, the Obama administration remembered that Kerry had been, after all, “briefly on his boat.” The entire administration, of course, remains all at sea, and events in post-Morsi Egypt are looking pretty vague too.

Americans can pause here to indulge a pang of heartfelt empathy for the Egyptian Street, because undeniably a degree of parallelism obtains in our situations. Have we not placed our electoral foot in a not dissimilar bucket? If you suppose otherwise, dear readers, consider this remark by Egyptian writer Wael Nawara appearing on the middle-eastern website Al Monitor: “It is not just about the fuel shortages, power outages, deteriorating economy or soaring prices. Western media rarely, if ever, mention the Muslim Brotherhood’s assault on Egyptian identity, culture and way of life as a core cause of the protests.”  That’s okay, Wael—they never mention the assault on our identity, culture and way of life, either!

The TIMES they are a-changin’?

imagesCAWEF1VHWas it a sign of the apocalypse, a genuine shift in editorial policy, or just what Rush Limbaugh likes to call “a random act of journalism?” Or maybe there’s something atavistically stimulating about the anniversary date of June 6th that brings out the Americanism in people—even those unregenerate fellow travelers at the subversive New York Times. But for whatever reason, the “Grey Lady” roused herself from that stuporous apathy which safeguarded her from the slightest twinge of journalistic curiosity through the Fast-and-Furious scandal, the Benghazi betrayal, the secret criminal initiatives undertaken against the Associated Press and Fox News, the weaponizing of the IRS, and Eric Holder’s and Lois Lerner’s clandestine war against the Tea Party.

Et tu, "Pinchy?" What is Editor Sulzberger thinking?

Et tu, “Pinchy?” What is Editor Sulzberger thinking?

Suddenly, from out of nowhere, the Times bestirred itself to declare the clandestine monitoring and storing of the average American’s most intimate telephonic and cyberspacial communications a “massive overreach” by the administration, boldly opining that Obama had “now lost all credibility,” a judgment that was subsequently modified (as colder feet seemingly prevailed) to read, “now lost all credibility on this issue [mocking italics WOOF’s].” But the Times held fast to its original view that “To casually permit this surveillance — with the American public having no idea that the executive branch is now exercising this power — fundamentally shifts power between the individual and the state, and repudiates constitutional principles governing search, seizure and privacy.”

The Times didn’t stop there, either—it named Obama as culpable and insisted that he had every intention of keeping his malefactions a state secret—wow! If you are the Obama Administration (you’re not, are you?) this had to freak you out of your socks. Everyone knows that the New York Times never criticizes Obama—never! And yet all of a sudden, America’s “paper of record” thrusts its bloody blade into the back of the entire socialist-totalitarian conspiracy! And even more terrifying must be the probable ripple effect in the other lap-poodle media. It is not widely understood, nor, of course, ever mentioned by the news media, that almost no one at any of the original TV news operations has any clue how to gather or prioritize news stories. Nada. From the early ‘60s onward it has been a gentleman’s secret at the “major networks” that their news producers simply thumb through the New York Times and report the same stuff the same way. This always worked fine from a liberal point of view, but suddenly, without warning, it seemed likely that ABC, NBC, CBS, and possibly PBS would be inclined by habit and dependency to parrot the Times’s expose of the president’s lost credibility and shameful skullduggeries. And this could not be permitted to happen! (Egad!)

Ms. Lewinsky strikes a classic stenographic pose.

The problem didn’t really require a great deal of fixing. It must have been completely obvious to Obama’s mob lieutenants from the beginning that at the slightest excuse to distract itself from hard news stories, the Liberal Media would ignore every scandal currently engulfing the White House and joyfully refocus on anything else even plausibly attention-worthy. The only remaining question was, what sort of “anything else” was available? Well…remember when Bill Clinton discovered that Monica Lewinsky had his –umm—DNA preserved on her dress? And, oops,  that meant that he had to quit dismissing her as a psycho-bimbo stalker from Hell and admit instead that he had, after all, had sex with her a time or ten, come to think of it. (Remember him biting his lip?) And to get everyone’s mind off this inconvenient fact, and possibly escape impeachment, President Clinton first tried blowing up an aspirin factory in the Sudan with a couple of one-million dollar cruise missiles. This, he told Americans, was a near fatal blow dealt terrorism in the Middle East which is especially amusing in hindsight since the Sudanese thereupon offered him Osama Bin Laden–at that time their prisoner, and Bubba said no thanks)—but the truth leaked out about the darn aspirin factory and it became the stuff of spoofs and late night comedy.  Chagrined, President Clinton did some soul searching and decided that America needed to bomb the be-jabbers out of Kosovo in Eastern Europe in order to stamp out evil, and genocide, and, you know…bad stuff.

"I never had sex with that woman! "  Unleash the dogs of war!

Cry, “I never had sex with that woman! ” and unleash the dogs of war!

One thing the U.S. Military does really well is bomb the be-jabbers out of places, and the spectacular light show of night bombings is always a crowd pleaser. President Clinton, although ultimately impeached, was not removed from office. By drastically inflating the number of Kosovo’s Albanians killed by state forces, Clinton made Yugoslav President Slobodan Milošević look like a world-class genocidal maniac, (whereas he was strictly bush league), so the media joyfully turned their attentions to Clinton’s visually appealing bombardments, which probably killed around 5,000 innocent civilians. But Milosevic (rather sensibly) surrendered to NATO, otherwise known as the good guys, and was tried for crimes against humanity by the United Nations. The trial was held at the Hague, of course, and being a UN-sponsored event it naturally dragged on for years ending only when Milošević rather unsportingly died of a heart attack and everybody had to go home. . .

Cindy Sheehan’s 15 minutes were up the moment Dems took over the wars in the Middle East–did she get a job, or move, or what?.

You might think, at first glance, that the Obama administration merely asked itself what the stupidest possible foreign policy move would be at this moment in history, on the assumption that towering ineptitude would sufficiently astonish and fixate the media to distract one and all from the flurry of the ever-emerging domestic scandals; but give them more credit than that. What they actually asked themselves was, what did Clinton do to escape the wrath of the people and the glare of the spotlight when the Lewinsky business blew up in his face? And the answer was obvious—he wagged the dog! You see, war is always okay with Liberals when they wage it. Where do you think Cindy Sheehan went when the Bamster took office? What happened to Code Pink? Where are the parading college students carrying coffins and wearing war casualty make-up protesting the ongoing wars in the Middle East? Where are those casualty figures dolefully recited by media sermonizers? Vanished into the mist! Polls indicate that most Americans believe we have left Iraq and finished up in Afghanistan, thus these ongoing conflicts are unknown to the Nations’s legions of  low information voters.in wag thw dog

Besides, all American casualties magically became “NATO casualties” the moment the Bushes were booed out of the West Wing.  Our gentle readers may recall the film, Wag the Dog, which rose to popularity during the Clinton Administration’s sideshow in the Balkans, largely because its plot seemed to presage Clinton’s sudden obsession with  military glory. In the film, a fictional president gets caught with an underage girl and fabricates a totally fictitious “war” with Albania to distract public opinion. The war in the film is staged by Hollywood producers and the patriotic fervor it bestirs in the unwitting American public leads to the president’s re-election despite his sexploits—a plot that narrowly predated Clinton’s Lewinsky/Bosnia venture and seemed eerily predictive of it. But, as the Clintonistas realized, fake wars are not as impressive as real ones, so the  cleansing of Yugoslavia of, well, cleansers, was undertaken…with a bang and a boom, as it were. And thus was created a template for future Leftist presidents to employ when scandals threatened their sinistral designs!

WOOF readers are aware that John McCain flew to Syria on a highly publicized “secret mission” and met with rebel forces—some of whom turned out to be kidnappers, racists, and murderers, but failed to tell the Senator’s advance team in time to have their photo-ops cancelled. Senator McCain (R-AZ) returned to the Capital saying what he was already saying before he left–namely that the United States should take decisive action to oust Bashar Al Assad, Syria’s psychotic-yet-oddly-banal dictator, famous for his peculiarly tiny head, fat neckties, and profoundly hot wife.

John McCain making himself foolish in Syria..

John McCain indiscriminately posing for snapshots with fans during his “secret” mission to Syria.

Lindsey Graham, (R-S.C), who never misses a chance to assert something boneheaded, seconded McCain’s sentiments, telling CBS news that, “The President’s red line has been crossed. U.S. credibility is on the line. Now is not the time to merely take the next incremental step. Now is the time for more decisive actions.” And then, as the Supremes might say,  it happened! After continuously ducking the obvious fact that Assad used chemical weapons against his rebellious citizenry as much as six months earlier, Obama’s administration suddenly discovered, to their shock and amazement, only last week, that Assad used chemical weapons against his rebellious citizenry! An outraged President Obama declared that the United States would swing into action on the side of rebel forces., thus allying ourselves with Al Qaeda (just as we did in Libya during Hillary Clinton’s tenure as the most dramatically incompetent Secretary of State in American history), and plunge ourselves into an impossibly complex war zone teeming with contending interests and military forces, all of them rotten. True, by precipitately plunging American forces into the fray, Dear Leader could easily cause World War III, maybe even Armageddon, but the Bamster has never been one to let potential devastation, whether economic, literal, or Biblical, distract him from his immediate self interest.

The BLEAK PICTURE!

General Casey: The main fight is always the same: Multiculturalism!

General Casey: The main objective never changes: Multiculturalism!

America is now committing herself to a third middle eastern war, the other two having gone so swimmingly. What does this deployment look like so far? Well first it becomes apparent that Secretary of State John Kerry, who opposed intervention in Syria before he was for it, and who praised Bashar Assad as a statesman and a visionary before, more recently, denouncing him as depraved lunatic, was bringing his several weeks of combat experience in Vietnam to the table, whereas Obama’s newly hand-picked Secretary of Defense, Chuck Hagel, whose most significant traits are his snarky antisemitism and his rug-level IQ, will form the driving brain trust of the expeditionary force—together with whatever posterior-osculating military poltroons parade their stars and braids and scrambled eggs into the Beloved Helmsman’s war room to cluster officiously around their Supreme and Infallible Strategist the better to offer their politically correct assessments while trying all the while to sound more like SLA Marshall than Admiral Wrongway Peachfuzz—you know who we mean. Those politcolonels and General embarrassments who have, with a few blessed exceptions, gotten where they are by fawning over the perfect creases of the Bamster’s pants. Regarding this, WOOF would just like to pause a moment and ask once again: “Who promoted Peress?” And for that matter, who imagined that Wesley Clark should receive a fourth star, let alone a first one? And when Nadal Mallik Hassan shot down 45 of his fellow soldiers, both men and women, in cold blood at Fort Hood while shouting the praises of Allah, and Chief of Staff General George W. Casey rushed out to assure everyone that the real problem was that Hassan’s killing spree might cause a backlash against “some of our Muslim soldiers” which would be just terrible because, “as horrific as this tragedy was, if our diversity becomes a casualty, I think that’s worse.” …why wasn’t he immediately transferred to Antarctica for penguin outreach? Anyhow, you get WOOF’s drift here, right? Things keep going down hill, and everybody’s afraid to notice it!  (Except us, of course!)

The US military is deploying 20,000 additional soldiers to Jordan in case they are needed for an invasion of Syria, which of course they aren’t, while 200 troops from the 1st Armored Division will establish a headquarters near Jordan’s border with Syria, just in case Obama decides intervention is necessary, and we still happen to have some tanks left that he didn’t give away to the Muslim Brotherhood.  The Los Angeles Times, never previously known to monger war, or anything else to the right of unicorns and rainbow sprites, breathlessly added that American military spokesmen “explicitly described [the movement of forces] as a possible step toward direct military involvement in Syria,” The Pentagon has reported that plans exist to expand the force to 20,000 or more if necessary, including bringing in special operations teams to find and secure Syrian chemical weapons stockpiles, plus US air defense units now being flown into Jordan’s airspace, and conventional military units capable of moving into Syria if necessary.”

But wait, there’s still more!

The magnificently imposing USS Dwight D. Eisenhower, one of America’s 11 main battle carriers (CVNs) has evidently overcome the crippling constraints of dread sequestration  and is now off the Syrian coast where she joins 17 American destroyers as well as  several frigates and guided missile cruisers. The Eisenhower herself contains eight fighter bomber squadrons and 8,000 personnel, plus a substantial compliment of combat-ready Marines.

USS David E. Eisenhower (CVN 69)  Enormous power, illusive purpose!

And what about the United States Air Force? We can’t have a good distraction this summer without them, too, right? Well, if there is one thing that really scares us here at WOOF, it is Senator Lindsey Graham’s inexhaustible capacity for ideas. When he and John McCain have the same idea simultaneously it spells double trouble for everyone, witness the current immigration disaster they are jointly huckstering! But lest we digress….the latest military brainstorm from Lindsey entails the pressing need for American air superiority in a part of the world that, the truth be told, holds not an iota of national interest for us at the moment. But now that Our Dear Leader has decided to throw in with the psychopathic rebel contingent and eliminate the regime of Bashar Al-Assad by throwing the full might of the United States behind Al- Qaeda, Lindsey and John want to see the imposition of a “no-fly’’zone over Syria to eliminate Assad’s air advantage. Last weekend,  Graham said on NBC’s Meet the Press, “I think you can neutralize the air power by cratering the runways with cruise missiles and you can set up a no-fly zone by having aircraft and Patriot missile batteries operating out of Turkey and Jordan to neutralize the air power.”  Or at least that’s probably how it looked when Lindsey set it all up on his card table at home, he being old enough to think that Patriot missiles hit airplanes–they used to. The PAC-3 Patriot is a complete system redesign, intended exclusively to destroy tactical ballistic missiles. But we digress.

When these two silly RINOS put their heads together, one never knows what zany antics may ensue!

Wake us when the revolution’s over!

Now look, if America’s strategic interests were currently salvageable in this region, or even descry-able, all this would be fine and dandy, but the fact is, that the small envelope of time during which Assad could have been toppled and an effective government installed in Syria is long past.  Hillary (“Her Magnificence”) Clinton and Obama ignored it, and the Iranian “green revolution” too, while they were busy turning Egypt and Libya into Anti-American, anti-Semitic terror states, and ignoring the 8-hour battle that killed their own ambassador, two SEALS and a state department official in Benghazi. That bird has flown. Here’s the line up now: we have American aircraft being positioned in Turkey, and by permission in Jordan, where Patriot Missile cites are also being established….to shoot down enemy missiles, got that Lindsey Graham?

900 Russian Marines into the bargain--some, evidently, transexual!

900 Russian Marines into the bargain–some, evidently, transsexual!

We certainly won’t be lonely.  Although Benjamin Netanyahu has displayed a killjoy’s commitment to common sense and sound judgment throughout this imbroglio, issuing public statements to the effect that Israel’s Defense Forces will not take up arms on behalf of either side, unless its own interests are affected, almost everybody else wants to play in Syria. Syria has an excellent air force courtesy of the Soviets, excuse us, the Russians, and the Russians themselves maintain strong air assets in striking distance of anywhere in the country. Russian naval power is also obsessively clustered around Syria, and her first aircraft carrier is said to be en route.  Well founded rumor has also reached WOOF’s vigilantly-perked ears that 900 Russian Marines have deployed to Syria, ostensibly to protect Russian interests, which in reality means shooting at us.

Reporting for duty? Not again!

Reporting for duty? Not again!

John Kerry (who was in Vietnam, before he was against it)  took to a podium in Germany this weekend to sternly warn the Russians that they should not send new S-300 missiles to Syria because this might “prolong the country’s civil war, imperil attempts to form a transitional government through negotiation and hurt Israel’s strategic interests.” That’s telling them, John. Obviously Vladimir Putin never counts the day wasted if he can prolong the struggle, backstab any effort at transitional government, and bollix Israel’s interests, not to mention play Obama like a balalaika– but John Kerry is the only thing worse than a fatuous dunderhead, he is a stentorian one, which makes his maunderings unbearable in every nation he subjects to them, and this is very much true in Russia. In fact, we bet the Kremlin thinks he’s as funny as WOOF does. Worse, German Foreign Minister Guido Westerwelle (who may also be a fatuous dunderhead, although WOOF lacks sufficient data to assert as much) made similar remarks and indicated that Germany might view further interference from Russia as provocative. Russians, however, are not afraid of Germans. They just really hate them.

During a TV interview with French Channel 2 on Tuesday, French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius threatened that all options including military intervention are on the table. At home, Boy Propagandist Jay Carney found himself “concerned deeply” (and for the first time on record) “about the continued fighting in Qusayr,” (you can substitute Bosnia here, if you want to observe the original Bubba template in action). Carney added that the” situation has led to a dire situation, with severe shortages of food, water and medicine.” Yeah, war does that. Meanwhile, France and the UK say the Syrian government has used chemical weapons against militants, a claim Damascus has rejected as “lies,” which means, obviously, that its true.

French scientists have long suspected the use of saran gas by Assad;s forces in Syria!

French scientists have long suspected the use of sarin gas by Assad’s forces in Syria!

According to the French minister, samples taken from Syria and tested in France “prove the presence of sarin.”  But everyone’s known that for a while now, really, which makes Obama’s suddenly manifested indignation seem all the more ludicrous. Turkish PM Recep Tayyip Erdogan (whose name has somehow never been changed in any way by the AP at any time during his tenure) insisted Iran is the only country that could help Bashar Al Assad survive the massive protests geared to topple his regime. Why do they care? Well, see, Damascus lays claim to the historical Antioch region of the Euphrates River valley, but so do the Turks. So, by the way, do the Iranians. So Turkey has flipped and adapted a Bashar-must-go policy while the Iranians, who at top levels are famously if often illogically intransigent, remain steadfastly pro-Bashar, which fact Iran recently emphasized by sending four-thousand good-will ambassadors in the form of its murderous Revolutionary Guard to the region.  But this get’s better!

What if they gave a war and EVERYBODY came?

indexWe may derive some cheer from knowing that the vilest bottom crawler in the entire region, President Morsi (whose name is occasionally changed by the AP to Mursi but now appears to have reestablished itself as Morsi) has sided against the vile and corrupt Assad administration! Huzzah, right? Of course Egypt is backing the same people we are now allied with, because we handed Egypt over to Al-Qaeda’s forces back when Mrs. Clinton decided that our time-honored ally President Mubarak was the worst person on earth and had to go, remember? This led the way to “Arab Spring” which turned out to be a pan-regional nightmare and collapsed in a bloody seizure of power by Egypt’s Islamic Brotherhood, led by Morsi, the artist formerly known as Mursi, formerly of Hamas, now known as the Egyptian government. So having realized that Morsi was a slathering, insensate terrorist who raved incessantly about annihilating Israel, ( whose citizens he considers apes) Obama presented him with 400 Abrams main battle tanks and a squadron of F-16 fighters.

Did we mention Asma Assad is hot? She is also rumored to enjoy observing torture--but one must overlook such things in beautiful women.

Did we mention Asama Assad is hot? She is also rumored to enjoy observing torture–but one must overlook such idiosyncrasies in beautiful women.

Morsi figures this all went so well, he would like to see the same thing happen in Syria, and who can blame him? So he, Morsi, is now on the side of Al-Qaeda, NATO, and us—otherwise known as the good guys. And speaking of whom, did you realize that Hamas, the ‘terrorist elite’ of Gaza, has dumped poor Bashar Al-Assad (and his very hot wife) and abandoned any ties to Damascus and now supports the Gulf Arabs’ desire to crush Assad?  Syrian government forces claim that Hamas has even trained Syrian rebels in the manufacture and use of home-made rockets, which is how the Syrian government sounds when it isn’t making stuff up.  Jordan  meanwhile is requesting additional American troops, planes, and Patriot missiles, because it is understandably terrified, leaving Israel as the only rational principality in the neighborhood, and, of course, everyone else wants them to disappear.  Well, except  Jordan–and the King of Jordan has a a hot wife too, and she’s even American, so maybe he deserves some more Patriot missiles.

And then there’s the dragon’s breath from far Cathay!

That’s right, gentle readers, we would be remiss to pretermit the Chinese from this analysis! The Chinese?  Yes, dear readers, the Chinese, by whom Syria is considered a trading hub in which China has immersed an extraordinary amount of investment. WOOF KNOWS that China is also one of the sources that arms and manipulates Hamas and Hezbollah as surrogate  Katzenjammer kids in this cauldron of crisis and shifting opportunities. Why–? Look, some people are just inscrutable!

So why is Obama there at all, sticking our Country’s nose into the biggest light socket anywhere on the planet currently, making false friends out of authentic enemies, while genuinely alienating old friends, and allying himself with the lowest of the low? What purpose does any of this serve? Well, for the naive view, lets turn to the those dear hearts, John McCain and Lindsey Graham. “It’s disgraceful….the United States sitting by and watching this happen,” said John, meaning that he was prepared to make as much sense on this issue as he has in his ongoing crusade to permanently screw up  immigration.  Lindsey Graham, the Pillsbury-dough RINO, added on Meet the Press that he just doesn’t see why the Iranians should take our objections to their nuclear program seriously unless we stand up to Syria. Really, Lindsey?  But the Iranians aren’t going to take us more seriously just because we do a cannonball dive into a snake pit for the broadcasting pleasure of Al Jazeera.

indexo

No, somebody should tell the Keebler Elf from  South Carolina that Iran will take us seriously when we end their nuclear program by detonating a  100 kt warhead over  their largest nuclear research facility. And not before. Got that, Lindsey?  Arming and training  Al-Qaeda, Hamas and Hezbollah  just isn’t going to produce peace in our time– didn’t we learn this lesson from the mujaheddin? Nukes, truth be told, have a better diplomatic track record than multiculturalism. So, as we said at the beginning, Woofketeers, the only reason that the United States of America is currently throwing itself into this hell-broth with such preternatural zest and insouciance, is that Our Beloved Helmsman believes it will buy him some time away from the sprawling domestic desolation created by the malignant synergy of his Marxist class-warfare obsession in tandem with his sophomoric determination to promote kitschy, Castro-ite economic values, not to mention the domino effect of his anti-constitutional conspiracies becoming serially exposed. That he is risking World War Three to distract the nation from his high crimes and misdemeanors does not bother him—indeed, it may not have occurred to him, so far from reality is he removed by the twin demons of adulation and conceit.  So its off to war, folks, to save Rappin’ Preezy’s second term… Let’s do it for the in-crowd shall we? Lets win one for Tina Brown, for Chris Matthews, and the girls on the VIEW, eh wot? (Always remember, Woofketeers: There is nothing more violent, nor more ineptly violent,  than a peace-nik breaking bad!)

Mr. Pickens, sir, your ride’s here!

Come to think of it, in the film Wag the Dog, they actually hired a composer to write a catchy theme song for the war to get everyone feeling patriotic rather than censorious—and it worked pretty well…so WOOF hereby suggests the following adaptation of Irving Berlin’s classic“This is the Army”:

This is the tail that wags the dog!/ The bill of rights has vanished  in the fog!/You once had some freedoms/but this is war/And they won’t bother you anymore! Although, for those of you who remain, as does WOOF, a bit more invested in what’s really going on in the Republic and around the planet, WOOF recommends the more enlightened strategy advanced by an old folk-blues ditty from Lead Belly’s repertoire,  tossed off with the simple but inspired tactical sapience of a veritable delta-style Sun-Tzu; to wit: 

“If’n your house catches fire, and thar ain’t no water ’round– Jus’ crawl out th’ window, an’ let the dawg-gone place burn down!”  (“Come a ki-yi-yippy-come-a-ki-yi-yippy-yippy-ay!”) Are ya  listenin’ out there, Rappin’ Preezy?   There is still time, brother!   “Yippy-ay!”

Hillary finally reports for duty–was it her Ollie North moment?

WOOF realizes that many of you are baffled and bewildered by what happened Wednesday in the Senate and House when our very own first-ever recipient of the coveted “Dullie” award (for most foggy-bottomest acts of statespersonhood), showed up in a green dress and went pretty much berserk for a few hours. Yes, we refer to outgoing Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, but in keeping with our vow to refer henceforth to Mrs. Clinton in Tina Brown’s memorable phrase, we will refer to Hillary as “Her Magnificence” throughout much of this discussion. Now, as to the hearings—what was actually learned? Well, if you were previously unaware that House and Senate Republicans would rather gargle scorpions that pick a fight with a media darling, you learned that, right? And if you didn’t know that House and Senate Democrats would rather choke on their tongues than criticize a fellow Liberal, especially a Clinton, you certainly learned that. But most WOOFites already knew all that, so what is probably bothering you at this juncture is: what the heck was the rest of that Kafkaesque farrago about?  Or was it really the triumphant Ollie-North style storming of the Capital that the Post and the NY Times gushed about? Well, never fear, loyal readers! WOOF is here to explain the entire event to you, in an easily understood format with which to tutor your friends and relatives, in case they’re confused too.

Benghazi was never in “Roadhouse”

This is Bengazi

This is Benghazi

First, who is Ben Ghazi, and what does Hillary Clinton have to do with him? Regular readers are already aware that Benghazi is a place, not the name of the actor who starred in Run for Your Life; but most Americans still seem to be utterly unaware of this distinction, perhaps owing to the fact that the Liberal Media have not reported on the event much, for fear of causing viewers and readers distress and distracting them from the President’s election campaign and subsequent inaugural ceremonies. So for the benefit of the uninformed, Benghazi

is the second largest city in Libya, and it was there on September 11 (ring any bells?) that a company-sized unit of well armed terrorists equipped with mortars and RPGs attacked the United States consulate compound. Apparently, American Ambassador Chris Stevens was thereupon moved to a “safe house” by Libyan body guards, who had been hired to replace Americans in the interest of multicultural outreach—good so far? Okay, well, in the interest of multicultural outreach, the body guards then went and told the Al Qaeda forces attacking the consulate where, in fact, they had just moved the Ambassador, at which point the safe house came under attack.

Ambassador Stevens's  final moments.

Ambassador Stevens’s final moments.

The entirety of the fighting, from the time of the attack on the consulate until the time Ambassador Stevens was dragged through the streets, serially raped, and murdered, was approximately six hours. Also killed were former SEAL Tyrone Woods, former SEAL Glen Doherty, and Sean Smith, U.S. Foreign Service Information Management Officer. Additionally, we know that between ten and twenty others were injured, although nobody has been permitted to interview or even to identify them, and WOOF hasn’t figured out who they are yet. We also know that during the prolonged battle, during which the former SEALS beat the Al Qaeda attackers by a score of 60 to 4, the White House situation room was watching the entire disaster with that cool, sophisticated detachment for which our Beloved Leader is so frequently praised by his lapdog press. See, there’s this lady named Charlene Lamb who is the State Department official who masterminded the whole Libyans-protecting-the-American-consulate idea, and she has testified she could “follow what was happening in almost real time.”  Bear that in mind, WOOFketeers, because that’s important!

Meet Charlene Lamb--the only person in the situation room on 9/11?

Meet Charlene Lamb–the only person in the situation room on 9/11?

As WOOF followers are well aware, the next thing that happened was White House press secretary Jay Carney, boy propagandist, put on one of his more notable displays of creative fiction and insisted that the entire matter was just a protest over a film that nobody had ever heard of or seen. UN Ambassador Susan Rice went on every liberal weekend news program (which means all of them) and sternly repeated this rubbish. Mrs. Clinton even assured the nonplussed father of slain ex-SEAL Tyrone Woods, “we’re going to get the guy who made that film.”

The infamous film maker -WOOF’s 2012 person of year!

But there never really seemed to be any film—just a brief teaser for a film on YouTube that nobody here or abroad ever saw until the Administration began blaming it for the “spontaneous mob violence” that led to the Ambassador’s undoing. The poor schlub who made the teaser, Nakoula Nakoula (no we didn’t make that up) and may or may not have made the movie Innocence of Muslims (since those who acted in the film insist it was a different story altogether and only 20 people ever saw it screened) is rotting in the Regime’s political prison system, despite being WOOF’s “man of the year,” and having done absolutely nothing except forget to call his probation officer—but that’s not important now.

What if we blame it on some movie? Rice and Clinton confer.

What if we blame it on some movie? Rice and Clinton confer.

What’s important is the strong probability that top officials of the Obama Administration watched the hours long fight in Libya by surveillance drone or satellite cameras while conversing with our side on their communications lash-up in the White House situation room, and chose to do nothing in response—in fact they chose to repeatedly deny CIA offers to send in help and never scrambled air support in the vicinity. Official unnamed sources have also informed WOOF that an AC130 gunship was in the vicinity but was never given permission to open fire. As Tyrone Woods’s father told moderate FOX News journalist Sean Hannity: “I don’t want to point any fingers, but obviously people in the White House were watching this happen real-time. Someone in the White House or many people in the White House watched the events unfolding and knew that if they gave the order to stand down that my son would die. They watched my son die.” The Administration has since countered that nobody watched as this happened, and there was only telephone contact, so maybe Mr. Woods should amend his complaint to: “They listened to my son die.”

Obviously, the appropriate thing to do was haul the Secretary of State before a committee and ask her what the heck happened—but Hillary fell and bumped her head and couldn’t get up to testify. Until Wednesday. It was on Wednesday that Her Magnificence, looking wildly disheveled in some sort of shamrock-green fashion error, made herself at last available for congressional scrutiny and proceeded to clarify the situation as follows.

Her Magnificence stands on her record

Ben Cardin, (D), a standard hack Menshevik from Maryland who inexplicably defeated Michael Steele in a Senate race, expressed his sorrow that Clinton’s final appearance before Congress was to explain her role in a tragedy rather than to recap her diplomatic successes, but this seems an unlikely option at best.  WOOF has carefully checked, and there are no such diplomatic successes, unless one defines success as removing the reliably pro-American Hosni Mubarak from the Egyptian presidency and replacing

Mubarek--just dead. Thus always to our allies?

him with an anti-Semitic genocidal maniac named Morsi who rewrote the Egyptian constitution in one night, giving all authority to himself. But perhaps Cardin was thinking of how Hillary next helped eliminate the clownish Qadhafi in Libya, long bombed into reliable neutrality by Reagan’s military, and having deposed him through illegal, armed intervention, cracked jokes about his corpse while Islamic extremists replaced him and proved their gratitude by ultimately assaulting our consulate and killing our ambassador. While thus engaged, let’s remember too that Her Magnificence did absolutely nothing to support “Arab Spring” in the streets of Iran, where it might have overthrown the tyranny of that anti-American government, nor did she assist in the uprisings in Syria, where a banal little psychopath named Bashar Hafez al-Assad has been backing the murder of American troops in Iraq from the time they first arrived, in

Clownish no more--Qaddafi died while Hillary cackled, "We came, we saw, he died!"

Clownish no more–Qaddafi was slowly killed while Hillary cackled, “We came, we saw, he died!”

addition to which he is a pencil necked weirdo who wears gigantic neckties to emphasize his preternaturally tiny head, and who happens to be married to a really attractive lady whom he doesn’t deserve—so why not go after him, Your Magnificence?  Not his wife though, she’s obviously just misguided.  Oh, and let’s not forget that Hillary’s tenure comprises other “successes” such as selling Israel down the river, ignoring North Korea’s growing enthusiasm for lobbing ICBMs whither it whist (and developing atom bombs to put on them), betraying Poland by jerking the rug from under it in the missile defense deal she played a part in scrapping, while at approximately the same time inspiring so much scorn from Beijing that her recent visit to China invited nothing short of hostile derision from that government, and allowing relations with Russia to plummet into a new ice age despite her cute idea of presenting Putin with a big red “reset” button that was supposed to say  perezagruzka (перезагрузка), but in fact read peregruzka, which actually means  “overload” or else, “I am one jelly donut,” we forget which.

Or maybe it said, 'I understand your lusts.'

Or maybe it said, ‘I understand your lusts.’

Listen, when we give out the coveted John Foster Dulles (“Dullie”) award, we know what we’re doing, gentle readers, and Hillary deserved it! Her entire span of office was sheer chaos. A recent PewResearchCenter study of global attitudes towards the US indicates that sentiment toward America has plunged by double-digit margins everywhere in the world since 2009, and yet Sen. Barbara Boxer, (Dingbat-California), typified the absolutely ludicrous encomia heaped on Her Magnificence by nearly all committee members when she blathered: “Madame secretary you have represented us with tremendous strength and poise. You have won us friends.”

Hillary attempts to take oath as Girl Scout? No, just a pedantic moment.

Hillary attempts to take oath as Girl Scout? No, just a pedantic moment.

Well, no “strength and poise” was on display during Hillary’s appearance on Wednesday. She screeched, ranted, pounded the table, flapped her arms and maintained a general affect of near hysteria as she struggled to cope with the questioning without actually giving up the answers. Her single moment of unClinton-like honesty was her initial declaration that “Nobody wants to sit where I am and have to think now about what coulda, shoulda, woulda happened.” Of course, nobody else had to. She went on to explain that Benghazi was a direct consequence of the Arab Spring revolts, which, she explained, toppled authoritarian rulers, thus unleashing “long-suppressed radical forces.” Worse, she pointed out that these forces were well armed as a consequence of the Libyan regime’s collapse and the resultant availability of sophisticated weapons. She neglected to mention that all of this occurred virtually at her direction, and was, at the time, shrilly extolled by her as the democratic remaking of the region.  So should she apologize? Well, no, because, she explained, “We are in a new reality, We are trying to make sense of changes that nobody had predicted but that we’re going to have to live with.” Well, yeah—we’re going to have to live with them because Her Magnificence orchestrated them, but somebody certainly could have predicted the disastrous results because WOOF certainly did—and so did most of the vast right-wing conspiracy, (while the media pundits were flapping their jaws numb about Arab Spring) so why is Hillary so shocked and mystified by her own creation—a pan-psychotic Middle East?

What difference does it make?

What difference does it make?

When Ron Johnson (R-Wis) pressed her about her inability to recall with any detail what was first known when or by whom, and why nothing whatsoever was done, Hillary shrieked, “The fact is, we had four dead Americans!” as though this had not occurred to anyone else—as though this weren’t the main reason she was being asked to remember how she allowed such a catastrophe to eventuate. Nearly hysterical, she continued,” Was it because of a protest or because of guys out for a walk one night who

Ron Johnson–Leading Wisconsin back to Senatorial glory after a long dry spell?

decided they’d go kill some Americans–  what difference, at this point, does it make?  And suddenly cognizant of the shock her last ejaculation inscribed on the faces of the Senate panel, immediately added, “It is our job to figure out what happened and prevent it from ever happening again, Senator,” which suggests that maybe it does make a difference after all, and invites the listener to make the insane inference that the person who presided over the entire calamity and was at the informational nexus of events, is now going to set about looking into whatever may have happened…kind of like Dan Rather who finally said of his infamously hoaxed collection of George Bush’s supposed military records, after everyone else had long sense acknowledged their fraudulence, “If the documents are fake, I want to be the one to break the story!”  Besides which, of course, Hillary is slinking out of office and won’t be looking into anything except her own aggrandizement and future political career.

Four people died!

Four people died!

Her Magnificence solemnly acknowledged her full responsibility for the overall provision of security to her department’s outposts, and then claimed not to be responsible, emphasizing that the review board found that “direct responsibility for the deficiencies highlighted during the Benghazi assault began at the level of assistant secretary and below.”  The same board concluded that there had been absolutely no protest of a film involved in the mayhem of September 11, but Hillary didn’t mention that fact, probably because she couldn’t see what difference, at this point, it makes.

Hillary and her future victim--in happier days.

Hillary and  future victim Stevens–in happier days.

As to the frantic communications from the Ambassador to the effect that his safety was at issue, repeatedly insisting that his consulate required more security, Clinton simply said she never knew about it. The chairman on the House Committee on Homeland Security specified an August cable sent from the ambassador at Benghazi to the State Department requesting more security. “Someone within your office should have seen this cable?” he ventured. Clinton insisted that the cable never came to her attention. When Senators attempted to discover why the American people had been lied to about a movie protest for almost two weeks, Hillary scoffed, “I was pretty occupied about keeping our people safe, doing what needed to be done.… I wasn’t involved in the talking points process,” which response seems odd considering she’d done exactly nothing while her people were being butchered, and had herself assured Tyrone Wood’s father that she was hot on the trail of the evil filmmaker responsible for the crisis. But her magnificence has little to worry about. The monolithically Leftist media will repair her image for her, flushing her sins down the memory hole long before her presidential bid in 2016—and the excuse makers on the left are already hard at work putting the blame exactly where it could not rationally be suspected of belonging. Bush’s fault? Well, not quite, no—but it was left to Rep. Joaquin Castro, D-San Antonio, a committee member, to strike the proceedings’ comic high point by concluding that: “After this hearing one thing is clear, Congress must take a look at itself and seriously examine whether it commits the resources that are necessary for the State Department to carry out its job properly!” WOOF bets Representative Castro a free t-shirt against his redest power tie that he had that remark prepared before Her Magnificence ever sat down to testify.

Her Magnificence grows weary of these buffoons!

“We’ve come a long way–” but we ain’t no-ways tard!   Or is we?

Not to be outdone, Hillary offered a comedic capstone, solemnly averring, “We’ve come a long way in the past four years, and we cannot afford to retreat now!”

QUESTIONS NOBODY GOT ANSWERED OR EVEN ASKED IN MOST CASES:

  • Why did the administration blatantly lie for two weeks about the attack being a reaction to the movie “Innocence of Muslims,” which nobody ever heard of?

Mow down those protesters! Kill those Jews! Support the Pentagon’s mission objectives!

Oh, and in the wake of a violent 9/11 attack on the American Embassy in Egypt, occurring on the same night as the more infamous assault in Libya, and the seizure of the Egyptian government by the radically anti-American Muslim-Brotherhood, the Obama Administration is celebrating by sending its brethren in Egypt a fully equipped squadron of F-16 fighters. But less well known than this, is the additional gift of 200 combat-ready Abrams M-1 main battle tanks. Asked if this obvious effort to arm Israel’s potential adversary with the finest tanks in the world might not be considered a tad irresponsible, Obama’s Pentagon replied that it is constantly reviewing matters of military assistance to foreign regimes to ensure that all such allotments are consistent with “U.S. objectives” which apparently now include as many dead Israeli soldiers as possible, and the ability of Egyptian Thug-in-Chief Mohamed Morsi to run over as many protesters in his streets as he finds necessary to retain power. For his part, Morsi has commented that “No reasonable person can expect progress [with Israel]. Either you accept the Zionists and everything they want, or else there is war. This is what the occupiers of the land of Palestine know – these blood suckers who attack the Palestinians, these warmongers, these descendants of apes and pigs. They must not be given any opportunity and must not stand on any Islamic or Arab land. They must be driven out of our countries.”

Despite WOOF’S certainty that Egypt’s homicidally deranged presidential strongman Mohamed Mursi, had seen the hieroglyphics on the wall and fled his besieged palace in Cairo, it now appears that he sneaked back through a servant’s entrance this morning, probably by conniving with the subversive REUTERS propaganda agency to change his name to Mursi, which REUTERS is now calling him, as opposed to Morsi, which they were calling him yesterday. Will there be any mercy for Mursi (aka Morsi) now that the aroused citizenry is alert to his having turned up again like the proverbial bad Piastre? WOOF learned late this afternoon that the fascistic terror merchants of the Muslim Brotherhood, (not affiliated with Louis Farrakhan) have taken a page from the handbook of Obama’s purple-shirted SEIU goons and thrown themselves into the fray, slugging, shooting, knifing and strangling anti-government protesters while yelling, “Defending Mursi [or possibly Morsi]is defending Islam!” at the top of their lungs, much in the manner Americans have come to associate with frequent SEIU operations domestically. Characteristically cool amid the tumult, American president Barack Obama had someone in his administration appeal for “dialogue,” while 211 people were killed in the riots and 1.3 billion in American military aid poured into Egypt.

Obviously inspired by the cool demeanor of the Obama Administration’s top officials, Prime Minister Hisham Kandil, who thus far only spells his name as reported, called for “An opportunity to engage in national dialogue!” Which bold appeal was followed almost immediately by the spread of violent protest to several other Egyptian cities, including Suez and Ismailia where the respective Muslim Brotherhood offices were set ablaze by concerned citizens. And while opposition political leaders have also voiced strong disapproval of the constitution written in a single night by Mursi and an all-girl foursome of radical Islamic assistants, they have not joined protesters in calling for his immediate dismemberment. Opposition political parties have, on the other hand, called for the retraction of that aspect of the new constitution that gave Mursi the right to do anything he wanted at any time he liked to absolutely anyone he wanted to do it to without possibility of review by the judiciary.

“”If we do not put a stop to this phenomenon right away … where are we headed? We must calm down,” said somebody whom REUTERS identified only as “Mekky,” (apparently no relation to the cute Alpine hedgehog mascot of Bavarian postcard fame), while Hillary Clinton gave voice to similarly profound insights, declaring today that Mursi’s government needed to “respect the rights of all citizens.”

Adorable “Mecki” apparently not involved despite earlier reports!

Will Mursi mercilessly beat, bomb, and bludgeon his way back to the top? Will his all-girl cabinet remain intact? Will the Muslim Brotherhood be able to kill enough Egyptians fast enough to protect the democratic process in Cairo? Will that traditional power-broker, the Egyptian Army, take sides in the fracas, or remain in its barracks, where it has chosen to ensconce itself thus far? Will President Obama, if forced to take action on behalf on his dream of pan-Islamic solidarity, unleash American planes and cruise missiles in defense of the embattled Egyptian First Terrorist?  Might he send the SEIU? WOOF is on the story! We will continue to monitor the increasingly fluid situation and bring you the latest on power plays, street demonstrations, and changes in the name spellings of key players, as they develop! 

CHILLY WINDS? PRESIDENT’S ARAB SPRING VISION TAKES AUTUMNAL TURN!

HAS OBAMA’S PLAN FOR A SOLIDLY UNITED ISLAM HIT A SNAG?

What has gone so desperately wrong with President Obama’s precision-honed policies in the Middle East? Until recently the regime’s plans to place the region solidly under a pan-terroristic caliphate had unfolded so flawlessly as to put to shame all previous endeavors in the region! Not since 1956 when John Foster Dulles sent the United States Navy to confront the British and French Navies in Mediterranean Sea, thus halting a madcap endeavor by the joint forces of those European powers in concert with the fledgling nation of Israel to restore the French-built Suez Canal to British management after Egypt’s Gamal Abdel Nasser “nationalized it,” had the United States exhibited such cool, unambiguous irrationality in the face of looming cohesion. Even as the region hovered perilously close to the brink of lasting stability, Dulles directed the massive sale of American sterling in order to weaken the British pound, and asked the United Nations to insert its forces into the embattled Canal Zone to prevent further stabilization! (Regular attendees of these pages will recall that WOOF recently created the John Foster Dulles Award for exceptional feats of American statespersonship in commemoration of this valiant epoch and bestowed the very first “DULLIE” upon Secretary of State Clinton).

IRAN SAVED FROM THE HANDS OF AN ANGRY CITIZENRY!

Readers will also acknowledge, we trust, that the Obama/Clinton Middle Eastern policy has been one of unbroken triumphs until now. Let us review, gentle reader: First, President Obama flew to Cairo in 2009 to make the first of many “apology speeches,” during which he lamented American arrogance in the region and pointed out that Egyptian stability was a reliable force in the Middle East. In February of 2009 he pumped $20 million dollars of taxpayer money for ‘urgent refugee and migration needs” into Gaza, confident that, as Barbara Crook of Media Watch pointed out, “the money will be used to promote terrorism and teach Palestinians to hate non-Muslims and oppose the existence of Israel.” Obama next sent a special envoy to the Middle East to “listen to people and not to dictate” which the (psychotic) leadership of Iran hailed as a “positive signal.” But all was not sweetness and light in the quiet principality of Iran—no, in fact massive rioting broke out in the streets of Tehran and other cities following the re-election of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad who defeated moderate candidate Mir-Hossein Mousavi through the traditional campaign tactic of rigging the election. The result brought thunderous youth protests and violence across Iran, on a scale that outstripped anything seen elsewhere in the region. Ever cool and detached, President Obama did absolutely nothing to inject influence into the strife torn nation, nor did he so much as mention the events in Iran for two weeks. Come to think of it, neither did the American news media. Thus, while the rioting in Iran continued unnoticed in 2010, Obama turned his attention to affairs of state, inviting Israeli leader Benjamin Netanyahu to the White House for a dinner in his honor over which discussions of peace were planned—but Obama didn’t care for the discussion and abandoned Netanyahu in the Roosevelt Room, telling him his concessions were inadequate. “Let me know if you come up with anything new,” the President told Netanyahu, abandoning him and his gobsmacked entourage while Obama went to dinner without him.

EGYPT SAVED FROM THE FIEND MUBARAK!

But the winds of change soon demanded the attention of our young President, who discovered that a truly nefarious tyrant, long-time United States ally Hosni Mubarak, was confronting rioters in the streets of Egypt. This wound on for ten days, during which time the world reeled at the violent image of one Egyptian protester getting shot by a member of Mubarak’s security forces. His mind made up, President Obama insisted on the departure of Mubarak from power despite his history of unflagging cooperation with the U.S., and the American news media began incessantly nattering that an “Arab Spring” was bringing democracy to the region. What it brought instead, as WOOF confidently predicted at the time, was a thug-ocracy run by Mohamed Morsi, a Hamas–affiliated member of the fascistic Muslim Brotherhood who wasted no time making it plain that he required broad new powers in order to, among other fine points, spread Islamic law and extirpate Israel.To help celebrate, TIME, a subversive pop-cultural magazine, dutifully declared him “The most important man in the Middle East.”

LIBYA SAVED FROM THE ENUI OF NEUTRALITY!

Gaddafi just dead after long ride

WOOF readers will recall that at this moment in history, the Arab Spring spread its vernal waftages over Libya, where dwelt another enemy of peace and prosperity, a vile tyrant named Muammar Gaddafi who was so insane that he couldn’t even decide how to spell his name, changing it constantly!  Gaddafi, back when he was Qaddafi, before he became Kaddafi, financed several terroristic missions against Americans, but showed the uneven judgment to do so during the halcyon reign of Ronald Reagan, who shot down his Air Force, sank his Navy, blew up his mansion, and recommended that he retire from the business of exporting terror—which Kaddafi immediately did. He even gave up his nuclear program. Obama and Mrs. Clinton could not countenance any further insults to international decency from this madman, and sent American aircraft, Predator Drones and cruise missiles to fly cover for Al Qaeda, which took nearly forever to overthrow the tyrant, whose soldiers actually shot back, eventually succeeding with additional “NATO” (read: American) air support. Tying Khadafy to the hood of a car, the “rebels” (state department jargon for Al Qaeda fighters) drove the shrapnel-wounded dictator (whom they called Qadhafi) around the city of Sirte. During this drive he was stripped naked and variously shot and bludgeoned. It transpired– by the time his tour of the city ended–that Gadaffi was dead. This cleared the way for an Al Qaeda led take over of a previously peaceful Libya, and inspired Secretary of State Clinton to remark “Wow!” to which she appended the rather more classical trope, “We came, we saw, he died!” Meanwhile in Washington, President Obama solemnly declared that “iron-fisted rule” had ended in Libya, adding, “Our leadership…has helped guide our coalition” (Administration jargon for Al Qaeda).

SYRIA BENEFITS FROM PLANNED IGNORING—THE IRANIAN MODEL!

Next, readers will recall that things started looking pretty Arab Springy in Syria, but readers will also recall that Syria is led by a rabidly anti-Semitic sociopath (who wears ridiculously large ties considering how small his head is), President Bashar al-Assad. And Assad wants nothing more in life than to kill American soldiers by financing and supplying the terror war in Iraq while figuring out better ways to wipe out Israel, perhaps with all the Saran gas it turns out he has, and with which the Obama Administration politely asked him to be careful. Cool as ever in the face of geopolitical upheaval, our president resolutely proceeded to  do nothing whatsoever to assist with Assad’s overthrow by a Syrian citizenry increasingly fed up with their dictator’s psychopathy, ridiculously fat ties, and small head.

SO WHAT WENT WRONG?? 

How is it then, that in the wake “No-Drama” Obama’s continued success replacing neutral or pro-Western regimes with slathering terror mongers, we awake this day to discover that one of them is not only unhinged, but unseated?  Might Egypt slump back into the neutral column after all the Administration’s hard work? How can it be? Well, no matter how the Administration may elect to spin it, things are looking pretty dismal for the Obama Mideast Plan in Cairo this dawn! Tens of thousands of protesters in the streets of Cairo and Alexandria angrily called for Morsi to abandon the presidency, his rule having become unendurable to the Egyptian people, especially after November 22nd when he issued a decree placing himself above oversight of any kind, and adopted a “Constitution” that he’d stayed up all night writing with the help of only four women, (all Islamist extremists).

And only today, rather than face the throngs calling for his immediate departure, Morsi departed! An Egyptian official said that Morsi left on the advice of security officials at the palace and to head off “possible dangers.” Morsi’s spokesman said the president left the palace at the end of his work schedule through the door he routinely uses. WOOF thinks that Morsi’s spokesman was probably lying about that part.  Soon afterwards, police abandoned the rest of the barricades, allowing the crowds to thunder up to the walls of the palace complex. Is the Obama Middle East strategy coming unraveled? American voters seemed unperturbed by the fact that two Navy SEALS were gunned down, an American Ambassador homosexually raped and murdered, and two other Americans butchered in Benghazi while the Obama Administration watched by satellite and decided to blame a 15 minute movie that nobody has, to this date, ever laid eyes on, but will they be as comfortable with this sudden deterioration of the Egyptian situation? What if an authentic democracy is established? What if it isn’t linked to Hamas? What if it isn’t presided over by a homicidal ideologue? Would the Administration lose face permanently in the region? Mrs. Clinton, we know you read the WOOF forums! Time to get in there and earn that DULLIE!

Middle East peace hopes brighten with Hillary’s arrival!

In "Springtime for Terror" Forum on November 25, 2012 at 4:27 am

All eyes on you, Madam Secretary!   

United States Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton arrived this week on the West Bank determined to resolve the long-standing conflict between Arabs and Israelis. It was reported only Tuesday that peace had accordingly broken out in the Middle East as Mrs. Clinton met in earnest discussions with Gaza’s Hamas leadership, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, and the Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi, who is taking time away from the rioters calling for his dismemberment in Cairo to extend the hand of friendship and cooperation amidst the chaos and destruction of recent weeks. Despite continued launchings of missiles into Israeli territory, and the terror bombing of an Israeli bus, Mrs. Clinton pluckily informed the media that, “In the days ahead, the United States will work with our partners here in Israel and across the region toward an outcome that bolsters security for the people of Israel, improves conditions for the people of Gaza and moves toward a comprehensive peace for all people of the region.” As she spoke, Israeli jets blasted Gaza in at least 30 air strikes,  blowing up government buildings and smuggling tunnels, as well as a variety of high-ranking Hamas party officials, while badly rattling the French News Agency, Agence France-Presse, which seems to have been coincidentally located adjacent to the main Hamas media offices.

WOOF readers should bear in mind that war is no stranger to Mrs. Clinton, who, it will be remembered, vividly described  dodging sniper fire upon landing at Tuzla Airport in Bosnia during her husband’s administration, an event so traumatizing to the rest of her entourage that none of them, including entertainers Sindbad and Sheryl Crow, could recall it ever having happened! Thus, prospects for peace are looking up in the vicinity, and as if Hillary’s presence were not enough to vouchsafe a new era of trust and serenity in that war ravaged region, WOOF has learned that additional firepower recently arrived in the person of U.N. General Secretary Ban Ki-moon who wasted no time. despite the onslaught of Palestinian rocket attacks, urging that Israel show “maximum restraint.”

WOOF’s review of previous outbreaks of peace in the middle east for the student of history in a hurry…

In "Springtime for Terror" Forum on November 25, 2012 at 3:56 am

A look back at  great moments in Middle Eastern diplomacy!

As students of history are aware, peace was first brought to the Middle East by Secretary of State John Foster Dulles, who in 1956 stopped Israel, France, and Britain from beating up the Egyptians and seizing control of the Suez Canal from Gama Abdel Nasser, who had just “nationalized” it. Since then, several other American Secretaries of State have brought peace to the Middle East in similar ways—By WOOF’s informal count, secretaries of state who have achieved peace in the middle east prior to Mrs. Clinton include the above mentioned Dulles as well as Christopher Archibald Herter, who founded the Middle East Peace Institute while serving with the World Peace Foundation; Dean Rusk, who when implored by Israeli Minister Eban to intercede on Israel’s behalf to prevent an attack by Egypt, refused, but encouraged a cease fire after Israel’s victory in the Six Day War; William Pierce Rogers who brought peace to the Middle East on behalf of President Nixon by brokering a cease-fire between Israel and Egypt; which led to the 1973 Yom Kippur War in which Israel was attacked by Egypt, Syria and Jordan whereupon it defended itself successfully enough that Secretary of State Henry Kissinger was obliged to bring peace to the Middle East by persuading Israel to cease firing and return the Egyptian Third Army.

Following the election of James Earl Carter, the first peanut farmer from Georgia to win the American presidency, Secretary of State Cyrus Vance was persuaded to leave his duties with the Trilateral Commission long enough to help forge the Israel-Egypt Peace Treaty, the first peace treaty between Israel and an Arab neighbor. The treaty was signed by Israel’s Prime Minister Menachem Begin and President Sadat of Egypt, thus bringing peace to the Middle East. This lasted until President Sadat was shot to death by his own troops while reviewing them on parade. Cyrus Vance was shortly succeeded by Edmund Muskie who brought peace to the Middle East by negotiating a halt to Soviet expansion into the Persian Gulf region just prior to the Soviet expansion into the region, while in 1982 Secretary of State Al Haig brought peace to the Middle East by negotiating a cease fire between Israel and the PLO after which the PLO shot an Israeli ambassador in London and shelled several of Israel’s northern communities. This resulted in the Israeli invasion of Lebanon which threatened to eliminated the PLO until special envoy Phillip Habib finessed a regional truce calling for the removal of all foreign armies from Lebanon, thus bringing peace to the Middle East.

Secretary of State Haig was succeeded by Secretary of State George Shultz who focused U.S. diplomatic efforts on resolving the conflict in the Middle East, specifically by insisting that Israel abide by UN resolution 242 and withdraw from the West Bank. Schultz was then able to bring peace to the Middle East by opening a diplomatic dialogue with the Palestinian Liberation Organization and Yasir Arafat. Peace in the Middle East was cemented by Secretary of State James Baker at the 1991 Madrid Peace conference which called for an end to the ongoing conflict between Israel, the PLO, and neighboring Arab countries. Baker’s successor, Lawrence Eagleburger, maintained the peace process by talking Israel out of shooting back when Saddam Hussein fired a total of 42 Scud missiles at it during the first Gulf War. But peace in the Middle East was thereafter ensured by Secretary of State Warren Christopher who in 1993 persuaded the Israelis and the PLO to sign the Oslo Accords, recognizing Israel’s right to exist in return for Israel allowing the Palestinian Authority to exist.

By 1997, however, the Palestinian Authority was sending swarms of exploding Palestinians into Israel, engaging the attention of Madeline Albright, Secretary of State under William Clinton.  Secretary Albright felt that peace could prevail in the Middle East if Israelis agreed to refrain from building new Jewish settlements in disputed areas. Albright was replaced by Colin Powell who announced that the United States was “ready to contribute actively” to the process of bringing peace to the Middle East, adding that Yasir Arafat should “arrest, prosecute, and punish the perpetrators of terrorist acts,” which didn’t actually happen. Next, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice’s successful negotiation of several agreements in the Middle East, including the August 14, 2006 ceasefire between Israel and Hezbollah forces in Lebanon, led to lasting peace in the region, lasting in fact until 2008 when the border between Gaza and Egypt was breached by Hamas who installed Russian and Iranian rocket launchers whereupon followed 2,378 additional rocket and mortar attacks on Israel. Fortunately, as noted above, Secretary of State Hilary Clinton has now arrived in the Middle East, and Reuters and the AP reported Tuesday that peace has come at last to that war-torn region. WOOF hopes that this brief and admittedly hurried review of the Middle Eastern peace process has been enlightening!
