Senator Ted Cruz grilled Obama defense chief nominee Chuck Hagel over his controversial appearance on Al Jazeera, the Arab propaganda channel, during which the former Republican Senator had agreed with a viewer that the United States was a "bully" in global affairs. It has now been revealed that the government of Qatar, which owns Al Jazeera, was a major contributor to the Atlantic Council when Hagel was its chairman.
But Hagel also has an Al Jazeera connection through Georgetown University, where he is a professor, and which maintains a campus in Qatar.

Why is this a surprise? It's supported by the American peeps who relelcted 0bammy.
Chuck Hagel looks all the world like some rumpled old stew bum who drinks Muscatel Wine and sleeps face down in gravel parking lots.Looks might not mean a whole lot to some people but they do mean a lot in politics and this guy looks like some towns town drunk.
Speaking of Qatar :
The Obama administration secretly gave its blessing to arms shipments to Libyan rebels from Qatar last year, but American officials later grew alarmed as evidence grew that Qatar was turning some of the weapons over to Islamic militants, according to United States officials and foreign diplomats. No evidence has emerged linking the weapons provided by the Qataris during the uprising against Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi to the attack that killed four Americans at the United States diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya, in September. But in the months before, the Obama administration clearly was worried about the consequences of its hidden hand... ------U.S.-Approved Arms for Libya Rebels Fell Into Jihadis Hands, NYT ^ | 12/5/2012 | JAMES RISEN, MARK MAZZETTI and MICHAEL S.

Talk about alignment of the stars! Barack Obama based his 2008 presidential campaign on the principle of sharing the wealth. He won, got reelected and now has, at least in his own mind, a flat-out mandate to extend his vision for wealth redistribution (and wealth destruction) planet-wide. This week, as United Nations luminaries gather in Doha, Qatar, for the 18th Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, Executive Secretary Christiana Figueres, the self-described daughter of a revolutionary, has presented her goals.

The Emir of Qatar, an absolute ruler, and Al Jazeera, have not covered the “Arab Spring” to advance democracy, but to support the Muslim Brotherhood, which is aligned with the Qatari regime. Al Jazeera has as its chief goal Muslim Brotherhood domination. Many Arab liberals and reformers were shocked by the sale of former U.S. Vice-President Al Gore’s Current TV to Al Jazeera, a pan-Arab broadcasting system charged with sympathy for terrorists. In 2009, even the Palestinian Authority in the West Bank, which can hardly be suspected of anti-Arab attitudes, accused Al Jazeera of negative, biased, and unbalanced reporting, and... ————Al Jazeera: Non-Arabs Should Not Be Fooled, Gatestone Institute ^ | January 17, 2013 | Najat Fawzy AlSaiedSunday, January 20, 2013 11:37:42 PM · by george76 · 6 replies
Ségolène ALLEMANDOU (text) Oil-rich gulf state Qatar has a vested interest in the outcome of the north Mali crisis, according to various reports that have been picked up by French MPs, amid suspicion that Doha may be siding with the rebels to extend its regional influence. Since Islamist groups exploited a military coup in the Malian capital of Bamako in early 2012 to take control of the entire north of the country, accusations of Qatari involvement in a crisis that has seen France deploy troops have been growing. Last week two French politicians explicitly accused Qatar of giving material support to separatists and... —————Is Qatar fuelling the crisis in north Mali?France24.com ^ | 22JAN12 | By Mark Thompson (video) Tuesday, January 22, 2013 11:43:36 AM · by bayouranger

American officials say Zarqawi's deputy also revealed that his superior had been regularly assisted and funded by a member of the Qatari royal family, Abdul Karim al-Thani, who provided passports and $1m (£600,000) in cash.
General Powell declined to reveal this information publicly because Qatar has emerged as an important ally for any American-led operation, allowing the US to set up its main air operations base there. Mr Thani is not a member of the Qatari government and officials from that country have described him as a deeply religious man who has donated large sums to charity ...
This is not the first time high-profile Qataris have been linked to al-Qa'ida. Saudi intelligence officials have claimed that after the terror attacks of 11 September, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, believed to have been one of the senior al-Qa'ida planners of the attack on the World Trade Centre, spent two weeks in hiding in Qatar with the help of "prominent patrons" -----?
Can't tell all these al Thanis apart when the reportersdon't use their complete names.
