Former Joint Chiefs chairman: Obama plotted to destabilize regimes in Bahrain, Egypt
World Tribune ^ | 3 October, 2012

WASHINGTON — The United States was said to have planned to destabilize at least two Arab countries over the last two years.

A former leading U.S. military commander asserted that the administration of President Barack Obama worked to destabilize the regimes of Bahrain and Egypt.

Ret.] Gen. Hugh Shelton, former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said the administration’s drive against Bahrain, wracked by a Shi’ite revolt, was led by the intelligence community.

Thank you for coming forward general. Stay safe sir!

“Had Gen. Al Sisi not deposed Morsi, Egypt would have today become another Syria and its military would have been destroyed,” Shelton said.

BHO2 has now been publicly outed for attempting to overthrow governments that have, in the past, been allies.

The Democrats have to be nuts!

This President must be impeached.

The Obama Administration actually had well funded and organized American Democrat party operatives such as Stanley Greenberg ( Benjamin Netanyahu the guy who ousted Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for Bill Clinton in the 90s and who has worked to successfully overthrow governments in various other countries) actually working inside Egypt and Israel to oust Mubarak, Netanyahu, Gaddafi.

They were successful with all but Netanyahu.

The obamites could call him back to active duty and bust him or put him on a one-way plane ride over to “negotiate” with the taliban

Because The Won has more than just muzz sympathies, he in fact openly supports the most radical islamists among them, and he wants those radicals to gain the leadership roles in as many countries as possible. Hell, he’s even doing it here, as he has placed members of the Muslim Brotherhood in sensitive positions within the United States government.

Why he is doing this and on whose behalf he is doing it for is not clear because it obviously not in their interests to have that disclosed.

These actions are just as obviously not in the interests of America or in the interests of better, more stable world.

His actions are not consistent with support of any one particular group or country, but instead seem to be siding with the most radical, violent, oppressive and outright evil players of all persuasions.

Very strange.

I don’t think Obama and Hillary’s plan was for the Muslim Brotherhood to take over. They had their pick Mohamed EIBaradei and his National Association of Change party during the power vacuum the Brotherhood took over.

He was the CJCS a long time ago...Clinton era.

We don’t know when he came to realize what was taking place, but we do know that when he was sure of it, he spoke out. He retired in 2001....a long time ago.

Its not strange in the slightest; he’s helping along the caliphate with the radical brotherhood holding the reigns. While he (and the worthless democrats and rino’s) are weakening our country financially for a couple generations to come we are removed from preventing sharia and the caliphate. His place in all of this will be the legend of how he helped kill the great satan; only I don’t think any of he or his cronies understood how un-believably hard it is to do; hence we need obamacare to destroy every part of our lives and put the final nail in our own coffin.

Prepare now, its going to be a bumpy ride ahead soon..

Destabilize Egypt to help the oil companies? How? Egypt’s not a big oil producer. I think we should look beyond the oil companies. How does this affect Soros?

If he had opened his mouth while on active duty and said such a thing, it would have been a court-martial offense for comments regarding his commander in chief. He is now a "civilian" like the rest of us and can talk as he likes. BUT, he could actually be brought back on active duty from retirement and court-martialed anyway if Obama and his ilk wanted too do it.

By any chance, did you look around to see if this article was factual and not propaganda?

Original source is a Bahrain site published in August. No other mentions of this explosive interview that supposedly took place on Fox.

Perhaps he has a lot of other dirt that he is willing to use if they take action (other than the preferred "accident", against him. For all we know, he may be champing at the bit for them to take the bait - probably wishful thinking but there has to be a lot of dirt in decent hands and until now it has been suppressed.

It does not matter how long we have been out. I have been retired for over 20 years. I can be called back by the Pentagon and Army at any time they feel they need me. Say the nation actually went to another world war. I could be called back to fill a job state side, in a legal office here and that frees a younger soldier to go overseas. I was initially in the infantry, but was wounded in Vietnam and as a result of the injuries, the Army reclassified my primary MOS (military occupational specialty or my job title, I.E. Infantry, medic, engineer, etc.)and I was made a legal specialist, working in Army Judge Advocate General’s Corp offices (JAG offices), and mainly worked on courts-martial. I would be made to do that stateside as a 60+ year old and the young folks go overseas. Officers can be recalled at any time also. We can, if the government wanted too, recall any retiree and court-martial us if they feel we have done something that warrants it, I.E. treason, etc. or even in Obama’s case, we spoke out against him).

"By chance" I did check other sources. None were Fox News. That's not that unusual though - the interview could have been for an upcoming broadcast or even too explosive for Fox. It wouldn't be the first time a news story surrounding O was spiked. Do you think we didn't destabilize Egypt? The only real news here, is that the same was attempted in Bahrain and this is the highest level (former Joint Chiefs Chairman) leader with inside information to admit it.

The story is both going viral and being squashed. I suggest waiting to see if Sheldon denies this statement. But feel free to ask the mods to remove the post if you feel so inclined.

Then maybe you know more than you're letting on?
