Allen West: “Bin Laden Being Dead is Not Foreign Policy”
Townhall.com ^ | September 23, 2012 | Daniel Doherty

Posted on 09/23/2012 1:45:29 PM PDT by Kaslin

This clip is a few days old but worth watching in its entirety. Appearing on “On the Record” with Greta Van Susteren Thursday night, Congressman Allen West (R-FL) explained why “it’s insane” for the Obama administration to base their entire foreign policy on the death of Osama bin Laden. Take a look:

Allen West It's insane for Obama to promote killing Bin Laden as basis for his entire foreign Policy

Saw this tweet from Wayne Root: “Bin Laden is dead... and so is the economy. Thanks, Obama!”

Wayne Root is outspoken against re-electing Obama, and was outspoken against Sarah Palin when she tried to stop him from being elected in the FIRST place. Thanks, Wayne!

What’s the news on West’s re-election bid? I know he’s in a new district and RCP has it rated as a toss-up. Anyone know of any polling being done there?

Well Allen, voting for NDAA and funding Obamacare was stupid on your part.

No, this is what passes for foreign policy in 0bowdown's world...

Sept. 11, 2012

Netanyahu gets the cold shoulder.

U.S. has no right to block Israel on Iran: Netanyahu

The embassy in Cairo puts out an apology for a movie most of the rioters know nothing about.

Former deputy national security adviser: US response to embassy attack ‘bizarre and unacceptable’

0bama sent a letter to Tehran assuring them that the U.S. will do nothing to help Israel. That takes that off of the table removing a big worry for them that might have made them think twice. Iran is good to go now with 0bama's blessing.

We don't support Israeli attack, US tells Iran

The "movie" turns out to be a red herring excuse to cover for the rioters.

CNN: Protests against film a ‘diversion. Attack was planned’

Quite a day of unfortunate coincidences. Israel was rebuffed and there were signals being sent to the MB and Iran. 0bama is giving the "go ahead" to the Muslim world to take out Israel.

Obama Admin Transferred 3,000 Detainees to Afghan Gov't Control Day Before 9/11

UNREAL… Obama Invites Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood President to Meet Next Week – Refuses to Meet Netanyahu

The White House hands Iran's Ahmadinejad a global megaphone

REPORTS: No Live Ammo for Marines

-------------------------------------------------------

CNN: Protests against film a ‘diversion. Attack was planned’

Egypt intelligence warns (on Sept 4th) of attacks on Israel, US embassies

Congress was warned about Libya last month

-------------------------------------------------------

U.S. denies premeditation report
"The Obama administration is flatly denying a blaring British newspaper report that the U.S. diplomats in Libya were killed as a result of a “continuing security breach,” and that “credible information” about possible attacks had been ignored. A U.S. official told POLITICO: “There's no intelligence indicating that the attack in Benghazi was premeditated.”"

Is that all incompetence? Or did it take planning to make all that happen?
Cloward & Pliven strategy and community organizing on a global scale?

People still believe 0bama's foreign policy is simply bumbling and incompetence. 0bama has set Israel up the bomb. The move is on to consolidate the Muslim world under the Muslim Brotherhood.

The kooky thing about that photo is that one and only one of the 0bama’s in that picture is totally disengaged and just an onlooker, and it happens to be the ONLY 0bama in the entire shot not photoshopped. Why, it even looks like that very one was just yanked off a golf course....

The fact the Obama administration sent out the UN ambassador Rice instead of the State dept. or the DOD to push that talking point is all I need to know about the administration motivation....

Congressman West as far as I know is the only one making that point...

That’s nice, but after seeing 2016 the movie, I’m disappointed on an hourly basis since none on our side are willing to spell out the truth...
