A Sickening Choice
Urgent Agenda ^ | February 26, 2009 | William Katz

Posted on 02/26/2009 5:04:14 PM PST by SumProVita

A SICKENING CHOICE - It's now official. Charles Freeman Jr., essentially a front man for the Saudi regime, an apologist for terrorism, an Israel hater of the first rank, and a man who expressed approval of the Tiananmen Square massacre in China, has been appointed chairman of the National Intelligence Council by Dennis Blair, the director of national intelligence.

This appointment is an obscenity. Reportedly, the White House was aware of Freeman's record, but did not want to interfere with Blair's choice. The fact that Blair could choose a man like this calls into profound question Blair's judgment and fitness for office. Freeman will be responsible for overseeing the National Intelligence Estimates, which guide the president.

Let us be blunt. In my view, Freeman is a security risk. He is a man who represents anything but American values. The lame White House concern about "interfering" with Blair is sickening. Who is president, Obama or Blair?

For years the left wing has criticized the "politicizing" of intelligence. Now we have, in the most sensitive position, a man with profoundly disturbing political views.

Something is very wrong here. Our intelligence service is sliding downhill under the direction of Dennis Blair, a retired admiral, and the White House refuses to intervene.

From The Weekly Standard:

The left has defended Freeman's views on Israel -- even when his statements seem designed only to inflame and provoke controversy. What the left is unable to do is defend Freeman's views on China, where he unapologetically supports the bloody crackdown on democracy activists who dare protest in the streets of the capital, and Saudi Arabia, which as far as Freeman is concerned is something like Berkeley in the desert. The left spent years bemoaning the close ties between the Bush family and the Saudi royals -- and it was a relationship that few on the right were eager to defend. Now the left can have their turn defending a man who is so closely tied to the Saudi Kingdom that in the weeks after 9/11 he wouldn't even consider halting his business with the bin Laden family.

It is perfectly apparent that Obama's foreign policy is courting disaster. It favors our enemies, insults our friends, and has no love for human rights or democracy. Change we can believe in?

Zero’s a terrorist-sympathizing anti-Semite.

Nope. The Saudis bought this elewction and country. We have FOUR times the saudis oil reserves onshore in the lower 48 states. The Suadis, helped by “environmentalists”, want to keep us as energy serfs and the new Islamic colony.

O and his handlers are doing to us what they did to the UK.

It’s becoming worst case scenario each and every day.

I am now expecting James Kallstrom to be appointed as FBI Director.

I used to say the following phrase in the past...regarding various nefarious things liberals did-—and people castigated me for it.

But I do NOT think they will now..

“It's all part of the big plan”.

This is why energy will be the issue that decides our fate. And this is the issue Sarah Palin is an expert on like no one else in the political arena.

I believe “subvertive” or “seditious” are accurate. Inept? NO!

The Jewish voters are getting for what they wished. I can’t think of any one voting block that voted completely contrary to their survival and religious beliefs.

But didn’t 95% of the Jews in this country vote for BO? Talk about self-destruction, again...

Yes, he is obviously inept. And what is Rahm thinking? Has he turned against the country whose armed services he served in?

No. This is deliberate and is intended to identify our human intelligence so they can be destroyed. Treason at all levels.

The Saudis help to buy him this election. They want their payback. They are getting it.

I’ll bet he’d have no problem using American troops and foreign mercenaries on American citizens.

Nothing inept about it. It’s a policy decision. Obama loves Muslims and sides with terrorists.

The only thing possibly inept about it is that he may have underestimated the reaction to this choice. But that’s probably deliberate, too. Get in their faces. Make controversy. It’s the Alinsky method.

Kudos, Solid, you picked up on the big one. Dissenters must not be allowed to disrupt government. They can be shot. That is his opinion.

Our President from Kenya is really doing a splendid job...risking the national security. When is this country going to wake up?
