COUNTERTERRORISM EXPERT: OBAMA ADMIN 'THREW DR. AFRIDI UNDER THE BUS FOR POLITICAL PURPOSES'
Breitbart.com ^ | 5/1/13 | Breitbart

Posted on 05/01/2013 7:22:24 PM PDT by grimalkin

On Wednesday, counterterrorism expert and retired Marine Lt. Col. Bill Cowan told Breitbart News that the Obama administration’s failure to work for the release of Pakistani doctor Shakil Afridi, who helped the US find Osama Bin Laden, was “disgraceful.” He also labeled it a massive intelligence risk for future operations.

“From a pure intelligence perspective,” said Cowan, “anybody who is providing clandestine intelligence support to us, any assets who are agents, have to be nervous when they see how we threw Dr. Afridi under the bus for political purposes. We would look as though we were mean and tough in our pursuit of Osama Bin Laden, but in fact, we used the doctor – which is normal for intelligence operations – but then we exposed him, and we’re not working hard to get him out of jail. It’s like he didn’t exist. It’s totally disgraceful.”

America’s egomaniacal Il Presidente will throw anyone under the bus for a short-term gain in personal notoriety.

That’s the way it’s done in your basic third-world sh*t hole, and that’s the way it’s now done in the United States.

ANYONE who helps the United States against islamic terrorism is by extension obama’s enemy. People who haven’t learned that by now are willfully blind.

Yeah, and his mission for Allah is clearly to destroy the United States.

And he’s succeeding.

The shame’s on the American electorate. That’s what’s totally disgraceful.

“...his mission for Allah...”

I’m going to point out something here. You capitalized allah. While, (as you can see,) my caps DO work, I never, ever capitalize anything I don’t respect. You can go through all of my posts and see that is true. And one of the things I respect least of all is the name of a false god in whose name so much evil is done as if it was a legitimate entity.

Even worse is the fact that obama, himself, is the one that blew the doctor’s cover.
