State Department to Spend $250,000 on Afghan YouTube Channel, Had No $$$ for Benghazi Security
Frontpage Mag ^ | 2/24/13 | Daniel Greenfield

Remember the State Department had no money for Benghazi security because of the mean GOP. But it can always seem to find huge chunks of cash for really stupid things like this.

This “Hope” nonsense smacks of an extension of Obama’s permanent campaign and it’s largely meant to fool Americans into thinking that matters in Afghanistan have improved so much that the departure is not a defeat. That makes this expensive propaganda boondoggle of dubious legality and obvious uselessness.

The U.S. Embassy in Kabul plans to spend up to $250,000 in taxpayer money on the creation of a website that will allow people to show how “the Afghanistan of today has provided opportunities that didn’t exist before.”

"Let’s make it 100 percent. And there still wouldn’t have been enough money for security in Benghazi."

There you go.

Anyone wanting on or off this ping list, please advise.

$250k for Afghan You Tube channel, but we can’t afford to cut the growth in spending.

When did Youtube start charging money to post videos?

Let’s see, that would be one government employee running it at a starting salary of $250,000 a year. Probably works on it an hour a day. From home. In his PJs.

Could have had a high school kid do it at no charge for the fun of it. Probably would do a better job.

I spent 22 years working with State Department types. One woman I worked with in Havana in the 90s, turns up on Facebook from time to time and is a serious kool-aid drinker. Another lady, the Security Officer’s wife, also posts occasionally. They all absolutely slobber over the thought of both Obamas. They must put something in the drinking water at Foggy Bottom.

All the more reason to utterly decimate & destroy that place, and start over. Cap the water system, if a problem, and have it trucked-in. I suspect the FB-Virus is in the air-handling system or food.

The original employment listing for the Bengazi guards was for Arabic-speaking gay guys with combat experience.

That only SOUNDS like a joke.

AND the DOJ offered hiring incentives for bipolar DWARVE J.D.’s —I’m completely serious.

The videos are probably being made by Axelrod’s production company.

If only we had an opposition party to the Dems that would hold all funding until all the crap like this was eliminated...

If only...

No worries. I’m sure the GOP will get right on it. After they finish accommodating the homos and illegals.

Sounds we'll see some of the stuff mentioned here;

Captain O’Hagan: “What's the significance of this John Chimpo fella?”

Foster: “You know those really cheap Japanese cartoons? No? This is basically a cheaper, Afgahni knockoff. It's this monkey that basically travels around the world, doing nasty things. His butler tries to keep him in line, but, uh... no.”

Rabbit: “It's really funny, Cap. It's Afghanistanimation!”

Captain O’Hagan: “The monkey has a butler? Great. Is that what they do in Arabia, Thorny?”

Thorny: “How the hell should I know?”

That's right. Republicans should be cataloguing all these stupid programs that we could eliminate. Pretty soon, they'll add up to real money......maybe even 85 billion or 44 billion or whatever the latest number for sequestration is.

It’s all clear when you realize where 0’s loyalties lie, and they’re not in the USA or the Constitution.
They are with a certain middle eastern cult.

Unbelievable!

The State Department has always done things asswise backwards, but this exceeds even their historic stupidity.

Nor can we expect anything better under John “I Was In Vietnam” Kerry.
