Skip to comments.CNN: SEC OF DEFENSE GATES SAYS RAID DETAILS WERE SUPPOSE TO BE KEPT SECRET!
Posted on 05/12/2011 5:17:41 PM PDT by macquire
CNN: Gates gave a speech today blasting the fact so many raid and Navy Seal details were released by the government. Gates said this in front of several thousand US Marines.
Could someone explain this to me? Is Gates accusing Obama directly/indirectly? Is he accusing Brennan? Biden? The WH press secretary? Is his accusation meant to be too vague to pin to any one person? Does it mean he’s planning to resign? [He should know by now you don’t diss the Narcissist Obama and maintain your position.] I feel like I’m missing something...or just being clueless.
Is there a link for this? Or is this a vanity?
Assuming they're 100% evil the liberal's opposition must of course be obliterated, their homes razed and the ground below sown with salt and to hell with anything they might have had to offer.
I believe Gates was blaming the president for the release of all the information.
My conclusion was that congress should call for Obama’s impeachment for putting the SEALs lives at risk because he wanted personal glory. Undeserved glory, IMO.
The military - in fact the US, is just an accessory to zero's ego:
Perhaps, the most enlightening detail from that Times article came from one of Obama's childhood friends, Slamet Januadi. One time, Januadi related, Obama aked some of his friends whether they'd rather be the president, a businessman or a soldier. The soldier would be armed, the businessman would be rich, and the president would have nothing. The boys gave various answers.
"Then," Januadi recalled, "Barry said he would become president and order the soldier to guard him and the businessman to use his money to build him something. We told him, 'You cheated. You didn't give us those details.'"
Here’s all you’ll ever need to know about posting on Free Republic....
Gates just looks like a whiney bitch. Do something about it huh?
Go fly a kite. No rules were broken.
************* That WOULD be in character for this chi-town trained narcissist.
This picture of the situation room tells the story.
************************** One picture is worth?
huddled down in a corner - still in golf clothes - blocked in, no way he's getting away from them again for yet another delay - looking like a whipped little boy, very NOT in control. The adults are in charge...
"Obama Hesitated - Panetta Issued Order to Kill Osama Bin Laden" Excerpt: "The operation was at this time effectively unknown to President Barack Obama or Valerie Jarrett and it remained that way until AFTER it had already been initiated. President Obama was literally pulled from a golf outing and escorted back to the White House to be informed of the mission. Upon his arrival there was a briefing held which included Bill Daley, John Brennan, and a high ranking member of the military. When Obama emerged from the briefing, he was described as looking "very confused and uncertain." The president was then placed in the situation room where several of the players in this event had already been watching the operation unfold. Another interesting tidbit regarding this is that the Vice President was already "up to speed" on the operation. A source indicated they believe Hillary Clinton had personally made certain the Vice President was made aware of that day's events before the president was. The now famous photo released shows the particulars of that of that room and its occupants. What that photo does not communicate directly is that the military personnel present in that room during the operation unfolding, deferred to either Hillary Clinton or Robert Gates. The president's role was minimal, including their acknowledging of his presence in the room."
***America how much are you going to tolerate???***
Now’s a good time to pray for the safety of the Seals and their families.
“My money would be on Valerie Jarret. More concerned about Obies reelection than ANYTHING else.”
I misread your comment to say “more concerned about Obie’s REFLECTION than anything else”
Note the illustration re: narcissism http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Narcissism
I think there are two camps within the White House:
The first is the military/intelligence community that is carrying on as best they can with the war on terror.
The second is the political machine that was installed on January 20, 2009.
The second camp ran amok with this story, making it up due to a lack of details as they saw it as a political advantage.
CNN had at as breaking news on TV on SPitzers show.
Now it is popping up on some news reports on the internet. Should be all over pretty soon - gates made this speech to several thousand us marines today.
Just trying to help you out, spud.
No need to get all huffy.
Now is the time to name ‘Loose Lips Obama’ and make it STICK!
The ONLY person with hate in his eyes in that photo is Ubama. Look at their expressions. Concern, coolness of decision-making, precision expectancy of military operation, OMG (Hillary), and a look, practiced or not, of hate and fury in Ubama’s eyes ALONE.
Oh. And the POTUS was NOT in the middle, as the CIC, large and in charge. He was huddled in the corner, in the black befitting a mullah.
"Building?" And what kind of "building" would he be referring to? A "house"? A white one?
