RUSH: A lot of people are upset that Obama is running around... What's the word? I'm having a mental block on this. Well, not politicizing it. Oh, he's "spiking the football." He's spiking the football over the death of Osama Bin Laden and he said he wouldn't do that. He said he wouldn't do it. He's out there doing it, and he's also saying that Romney would not have pulled the trigger. Folks, let me find something here. Here we go. Have you ever heard the name Admiral William McRaven? Does that name ring a bell? Let me read to you a story here from the Washington Post. Ahem. The Washington Post. A guy named Craig Whitlock. This is May 4th, 2011, a year ago.
"As US helicopters secretly entered Pakistani airspace Sunday, the Joint Operations Center at Bagram Airfield in Afghanistan was under the control of a square-jawed admiral from Texas who had labored for years to find Osama bin Ladens elusive trail. Vice Adm. William H. McRaven, one of the most experienced terrorist hunters in the US government, had tapped a special unit of Navy SEALs for the mission two months earlier. A former SEAL himself, McRaven had overseen weeks of intensive training for a covert operation that could cripple al-Qaeda if it worked, or strain an already troubled alliance with Pakistan if it went awry. The search for bin Laden was led by the CIA, which painstakingly pieced together scraps of intelligence that eventually pointed to a high-walled compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan."
You know I've always liked saying "Abbottabad." It just rolls after the tongue. Abbottabad! It's one of those words you like saying. "But when President Obama gave the authorization to invade the site, CIA Director Leon Panetta delegated the raid to McRaven, who had been preparing for such a moment for most of his career." Uh, I wish I could cite my source for you. I can't. I'm sworn to secrecy. But I'm just gonna tell you: They had to go call the president off the golf course and get him into that Situation Room an hour and a half before the attack so he was there for the photo-op. And if you'll notice, if you've seen the picture of Obama looking with the deer-in-the-headlight eyes at the monitor supposedly of the op taking place, you see a golf shirt under that jacket that they put on him.
Now, it's perfectly understandable. When this kind of stuff happens, any president would take credit for it. "I'm the big guy. I pulled the trigger. I gave the order," and probably so. But these people go further. They want you to believe that Obama planned the op, that Obama gave the shoot order, that Obama may as well have had a remote control on the trigger. No, he didn't. But that's what they want you to believe. I'm positive there was no remote control on the SEAL triggers. Obama could not push a button and have the SEALs' guns fire. They want us to believe pretty much the opposite. Grab sound bites four and five. This on Meet the Press yesterday. David Gregory talking to former spokesman Robert Gibbs. He said, "You've seen Senator McCain saying that this is over the line here, Obama spiking the football, celebrating, talking about how great he was for getting Osama."
GIBBS: Certainly it's not over the line. Barack Obama, as our commander-in-chief, asked our intelligence community to find him. He was brought actionable intelligence --
RUSH: Hold it! Just a second. See, this is what I mean. He "asked the intelligence community to find him." So the intelligence community was sitting around doing what? Playing tiddlywinks? Trying to find out when the next Secret Service trip to Colombia was? The intel guys were sitting around minding their own business, not doing their jobs, and Obama... What did Gibbs say? Obama "asked our intelligence community to find him." Do you realize nobody did that? Bush hadn't even done that. Do you realize nobody had "asked the intelligence community to find" Bin Laden! But Obama figured out that's what would have to happen if we were gonna get him. But only Obama knew that we were gonna have to find Bin Laden. So he told 'em to do it. Here's the rest of what Gibbs said...
GIBBS: He directed, uh, the brave men and women in our military to go in, uh, and kill Osama Bin Laden, which is exactly what they did under extraordinary circumstances. Uh, and Osama Bin Laden no longer walks on this planet today because, uh, of that brave decision and the brave actions by the men and women in our military. Uh, and quite, frankly, Mitt Romney, uh, said it was a foolish thing to do, uh, a few years ago. And, look, there's a difference in the roles they had play as commander-in-chief, and I certainly think that's fair game.
RUSH: Right. And of course Romney would also tell Medvedev: "Look, dude, sit tight, wait 'til I'm reelected, and then I'll have the flexibility to get rid of our nukes. You tell Vlad to sit tight and hang on. Go to Georgia, whatever. I'll handle this once we get into December." Romney woulda done that, too, right? So Obama told the intel people, "You find Bin Laden!" Nobody else had told 'em that. It was a brave decision to finally issue the "go" order from the golf course. Right. Uh-huh.
RUSH: Romney wasn't even talking about Bin Laden. In 2007, Romney was addressing Obama's claim that the war in Iraq was just a distraction. He wasn't talking about the effort to go get Bin Laden. And now Gibbs and Obama are trying to say that Romney was saying that getting Bin Laden was a distraction. He wasn't. He wasn't talking about Obama's claim that Iraq was. That's how these people are lying and running the campaign these days.
Why isn’t Zer0 visiting Cuba with Michael Moore to provide emotional support for Hugo?
Does the term “national sovereignty” mean anything to you?
May we in the US now expect other nations to drop in for an assassination or two?
Wouldn't it have been more beneficial to the US to capture and interrogate Osama bin Laden? If nothing else, we could have parked him atop the new World Trade Center building for insurance. The possibilities are endless, as they say. We probably could have traded him for all the political prisoners held by Islamic nations, for instance.
The book “Stolen Valor” comes to mind.
“Brave decision???” It was his JOB. The only thing remotely brave about it was perhaps risking the loss of his base over doing something bellicose.
But the rush to get to the situation room in time for the photo op didn't leave him enough time change his favorite Nike golf shirt.
Checked out the tagline link. Wow. Just wow.
Thank you. I hope you'll pass it on. This has been going on for 2 decades now. Most people either don't know about it, or think it doesn't effect them. But, the liberals are working quietly in every town and teaching our children in every school. Their goal is total control of the people. Their tactic is to use soft sounding ideas like clean water and bike paths.
I don't know where you are. But, if you look around a bit you will see that they are busy controlling your future through school boards, planning departments and environmental committees.
Do you live in an ICLEI community?
Not sure. After watching your video, now I understand Agenda 21 agitprop. And one person can make a difference.
Because we're always looking to be good stewards of our farm, last fall I enroll in a "Conservation of Natural Resources" Earth Science university course. As adult student at large; completing assignments, such as reading the required book text material before class, is my SOP.
First thing catching my attention, a chart without any data credit, asserts water pollution was non-existent on the pristine planet before GW Bush became President! Being on the water pollution front lines, first as a Boy Scout when the 1972 Clean Water Act was passed; and later witnessing unimaginable water quality improvements over a US Coast Guard career; I challenged the Professor. Stating this text material (now I recognize as Agenda 21 agitprop) was blatant junk science.
Professor *now* cautions class to be skeptical of the book. States our university "Earth Science" curriculum is undergoing fundamental transformation into "Earth Studies." And warns entire class about any university course material with the word "studies" attached. And tells us we'll have a survey at end of course to comment about the course materials.
Instructor continued to stop at many points in the course, pointing out where (Agenda 21) "studies" conflicts with actual science. Got an "A" in the course, and my classmates learned about junk science judo with the help of a now emboldened Professor!
