She also doesn’t seem to appreciate that under the current Press dent, America hasn’t just surrendered in the WOT — it has changed sides.

You are correct. Alfa Kayda was started by the CIA to fight the Ruskies when they invaded Afghanistan in December of 1979.
And they are being once again used by the CIA to try and overthrow Syria. I’m sure they were used in the other Arab Spring uprisings, also.
You have to remember that Fedzilla is also best buds with the Islamo-Nazi organization Muslim Brotherhood who has also been used in the Arab Spring ops.
Ah yes. Lies, subterfuge, deceit, obsfucation(sp?). Nothing new for the “lyin’king” and his minions. And sadly, it doesn’t seem to matter who’s in charge of the country. The “hole” Benghazi thing stinks of the same crap going on and the admin not wanting to be caught with their panties down. But hey, “What difference does it make at this point?” Sad state of affairs.
I wonder where she and others were when he first posited that terrorism had been defeated...
