So much bad Obama news, so little time. It is happening so fast, it is difficult to grasp it all, and the evil implications.
President Hussein's agenda is becoming crystal clear. And it is frightening. Obama is beefing up the PA, the Palestinian Army, while slashing and cutting American defense. Think about that. He is weakening America's defense to make it easier for Muslim terrorists to slaughter us.
President Hussein is inviting Iran to Afghan Talks (AP) . This is not diplomacy, this is submission to Islam. Period.
BRUSSELS - In a sign of the new emphasis on diplomacy, the Obama administration said Thursday that Iran would be invited to a high-level conference on Afghanistan's future.
Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton proposed the session, which could be held at the end of this month, at the same time the Obama administration is reformulating its strategy in a stalemated Afghanistan war. (hat tip Pete)
Clinton is a sock puppet.
The new approach is expected to emphasize nonmilitary means of blunting the power of the Taliban and other insurgents and to sharpen the focus on the role of next-door Pakistan in lessening the threat of terrorism or extremism in both countries.
How nonsensical is that? Non-military means of blunting barbaric power?!? Explain that mental illness to me. How can anyone follow such an illogical line of reason?
How does Islamic Republic of Iran respond to this outreach nee surrender?
Iran Throws Conference to Support Hamas - Ali Akbar Dareini
Iran, Hamas, and their supporters from 30 countries spent two days probing ways to provide assistance to the militant Palestinian group and promote "resistance against Israel" at an international gathering in Tehran. The conference aimed to counter an international meeting at Sharm el-Sheik on Monday that gave a boost to Hamas' rival, Mahmoud Abbas. Countries represented at the conference included Lebanon, Syria, Sudan, Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan and Mali, as well as Turkey, Indonesia, Algeria, Bolivia, Jordan and Yemen. (AP/Washington Post)
Consider all this and what Dan Freidman sent me:
"No British leader in modern times has been greeted with less decorum by his American counterpart, and the amateur reception he received was more fitting for the arrival of a Third World potentate than the leader of America’s closest ally.
"Brown is hugely unpopular in Britain – with good reason – but he is still the leader of the only nation in the world that the United States can rely on in war or time of crisis, which has consistently shed blood and expended treasure in numerous conflicts alongside America. A British Prime Minister deserves to be treated with respect, even if he is a lame duck at home or is barely recognizable to much of the American public.
President Bush was frequently labeled a cowboy and an isolationist by his critics, but the Bush White House knew how to receive its guests (including traveling press corps) with tremendous dignity, respect for tradition and sincere warmth towards visitors who had traveled thousands of miles to be there."
And from the Guardian:
"For large parts of today, Gordon Brown's long-awaited trip to Washington seemed to teeter on the brink of humiliation. For a start, Barack Obama would be fitting him in between a visit to the department of transportation and a meeting with representatives of the Boy Scouts."
Foreign Policy noted, "In a break with protocol, Obama decided to skip the traditional side-by-side photo-op in front of the two nations' flags, didn't invite Brown to Camp David as both Clinton and Bush had done for Tony Blair, and kept their Oval Office press conference brief, to the point, and not all that cordial."
To judge favorably, it's possible Obama's saving the red carpet treatment for Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. It's also possible we elected a loser.
And lastly, he is cutting off samson's hair ................
A financial crisis is the worst time to change the foundations of American capitalism.
The president proposes a large defense drawdown to pay for exploding nondefense outlays -- similar to those of Presidents Carter and Clinton -- which were widely perceived by both Republicans and Democrats as having gone too far, leaving large holes in our military. We paid a high price for those mistakes and should not repeat them...............
UPDATE: And Hussein named an Arabist and notorious Jew hater, Charles Freeman, to the enormously important positon of Chairman of the National Intelligence Board. Very bad.
