Skip to comments.Trotta: Seal Team Raid Week Before Election?
Posted on 10/14/2012 8:52:35 AM PDT by pabianice
Liz Trotta on Fox News Channel. First, wondering why the Coprolite Press is ignoring the disappearance of Hillary since the slaughter of four Americans in the Libyan Consulate. Then surmising that Bill's continued support of Obama is contingent upon no one asking Hillary any embarrassing questions, which the Rancid Media of course honors. Finally, surmising that Obama's October Surprise will be a SEAL team raid in Libya a week or so before the election to bump his support.
I doubt it, Obama is risk adverse to have something go wrong and blow up in his face.
Just ask Jimmy Carter how a raid into the Middle East worked out for him.
Obama does think so little of the American people, he just might try such a trick. But I have a couple thoughts, which are just as valid as Liz Trotta's.
First, the SEALs might just find the conditions aren't acceptable for such a raid, and they may make an on-the-ground decision to stay put.
Second, the American people aren't so ignorant as to fall for a stunt.
Seriously, Obamugabe is trying to give out fake economic numbers, and the citizenry aren't buying it...so this would be a truly stupid move. Which means the Kenyan Clown will probably do it.
Wouldn’t change my vote one iota. This scumbag Obama will kill more Americans than 4 in the next 4 years.
His little O appointed rationing boards will see to that.
Maybe we should take over O care for awhile and appoint our hand picked rationing board as payback. LOL It would scare the crap out of them.
Obama's desperate "October Surprise" has already backfired on him on September 11 in Benghazi...
Obama set it up to take the consulate staff hostage....so he could "negotiate" their release in exchange for the Blind Sheik just before the elections.
If it happens and something goes wrong, it’ll be Hillary’s fault.
If the seals refuse it’ll be their fault for disobeying an order.
The majority have fallen for a 4 year stunt so much they want to make is an 8 year stunt.
I guess it doesn’t work when the hostages are all murdered on the initial assault. Of course if you can blame it on a video that nobody in the world has ever seen you could try that. Hell, it worked with a birth certificate.
No, wait a minute, we’ll think of something else.
“I doubt it, Obama is risk adverse to have something go wrong and blow up in his face.”
“Obama’s desperate “October Surprise” has already backfired on him on September 11 in Benghazi...”
“Obama set it up to take the consulate staff hostage....so he could “negotiate” their release in exchange for the Blind Sheik just before the elections.”
I had not heard that take on it, spokeshave. How very interesting and in my view, plausible. Wonder if there is any corroborating evidence we can find to support it.
Hope there are no other “October Surprise Plans B, C, and D” in the offing.
Funny. I remember a similar attempt by Carter to look like a man...it didn’t go well then, I seriously doubt it will go well this time, either. That any MORE Americans might lose their lives for the sake of this man’s re-election makes my blood boil.
Your reason for the Benghazi tragedy is one of the best I have read.
I'm ashamed to say that has real credibility ... but then I thought the US had a long standing policy of never negotiating with terrorists or kidnappers
Not likely....President Jarret would not approve....

That was before the Apology Tour.
If it goes wrong, we will never hear about it. The media would cover it up until after the election.
Wouldn’t worry so much abot seal team surprises. TSA/BATF raid on GOP, maybe. Or an iranian nuke helpfully placed by Zero’s accomplices in the south.
WHERE is HILLARY???????? Hello....MEDIA!!!
Obama: " OK Abdel-Rahman, I got it all setup...we will take hostages at the Benghazi consulate and later negotiate their release for you"
It's a win- win as I get a big boost before the elections.
Omar: "you may call me Omar"
Obama: "Thanks Omar...and I got you a disguise as those pesky FReepers have an eye out for you"
Omar: "Let me consult with you later on that"
Obama: "I got it covered, what with the FEMA camps and a billion rounds of ammo."
Omar: "Keep up the good work my brother from another mother"
Obama: "And how was the American culture field trip to a noodling competition ?
Omar: ..."I caught an alligator."
There's an article called Weapons Hunting that put a different spin on it.
Another pet peeve is that in mention of Fast and Furious...people seem to forget that Federal ICE Agent Jamie Zapata was also killed with Holders weapons.
"While The Rest of You Have Been Distracted"...quot;While The Rest of You Have Been Distracted
Reflecting back with Sarcasm and Ridicule is from the Alinski play book....nothing like it so infuriates dims and lefties.
Plans are to raid the Romney third debate prep site. Take no prisoners, or witnesses....The Messiah cannot interrupt his golf games to actually prepare for the final battle.
THANKS!!! That “Weapons Hunting” article was JAW DROPPING!!
I don't doubt he'll try to pull off some sham of patriotism to boost his numbers.
This is more plausible than lies their spewing out.
Would have timed well with aflecks movie
To show Obama is better than carter.
This probably has their campaign feeling hopeless. Their October surprise backfired and now worse off than if it wasn’t carried out.
Hillary is sitting in the GUILTY chair over this utter ambush of our four guys.
Hillary would never throw in with Obama to make him look better other than in advancing his broad themes, to keep her job, but she had the money to secure these guys in the lion’s den and did not, even after pleas over 20 other incidents, and in this emergency.
She is getting Bill to squeeze Obama’s mouth shut in exchange for political peace though Nov 6. IMHO.
Somebody or something, like an administration is going to pay for this!!!!
WHAT, ERIC....WHO, ERIC?????
Even some Lefties would find it obscene.
Will their ever be justice on earth, by the hand of man?
We just must be on our knees to call down the powers of God, to assist us in His Divine Mercy lest He judge us too.
We are guilty of of letting too much slide, as a people, and our country reflects our wholesale rejection of God and our tolerance for increasing evil and it’s intentions to wipe out the faithful, using our institutions to accomplish it;public schools, universities, academia, art, entertainment industry, even our churches now fall under attack, by infiltration in the manner of our government infiltration.
We must work on our interior lives that our dear Father in Heaven will be pleased to hear our prayers, and answer us.
I speak to myself, here, but speaking out loud among friends.
Thanks pabianice. This is interesting (though brief) speculation.
yyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyLiz could be right because Obama would try anything , even burning the Reichstag to win support. I am sickened that voters would even dare think that this was not done except for political purposes. All Americans should realize is what Jeanne Kirkpatrick said: They always blame America. And any tomfoolery to elicit votes at the Nov deadline should be shunned by every patriotic American.
“the American people aren’t so ignorant as to fall for a stunt.”
Hmmmm. I think they are. Ignorant and fickle.
