Our friends at Restate are hearing credible rumors that Leon Panetta is quitting over the proposed procecution of CIA operatives. If this is true, kudos to Leon...
The Lexington, Kentucky Police Department reports finding a man’s body in the Kentucky River just west of the Clays Ferry Bridge. The dead man’s name will not be released until his family has been notified.
The victim apparently drowned due to excessive beer consumption. He was wearing black fishnet stockings, a red garter belt, a pink g-string, a strap-on *****, purple lipstick, and an Obama t-shirt. He also had a cucumber in his ******.
The police removed the Obama t-shirt to spare his family any unnecessary embarrassment.
The Police do care!
I think Hillary is REALLY wishing she would of stayed in the Senate.
Who would replace Panetta ?...why Janet Reno of course...Of all the losers Obrama has surrounding him, she would fit in perfectly, especially since she knows nothing about Intelligence matters and she is a solid defender of the boss...Perfect for Rahm and Hussein...
If you have a round in the chamber, you can use the arm as a threat. That is the value of any ammo the Clinton's may have. Once fired, the damage is done, the leverage, the threat, is gone.
In the meantime, all the control options on the Clinton wish list are being put into place, by the Republicans and the Democrats, and when she does get the reins, Obama will get the blame.
Any powerful entrenched Democrats will be expendable, too, and that thins the herd of possible ambitious successor material.
It will be a cold day in Riyadh before any of the emplaced infrastructure is removed though, but the Clintons will not be generally blamed for its existence.
Now, I have said the Clintons, but what I want to know is who is their puppetmaster? Who are they the front team for?
Be a mensch, Leon. Do the right thing!
I have finally come to the conclusion that there are FEW accidents that happen in DC politics. I have fought the conspiracy folks for years, but I'm finally waking up to the Marxist/evil/self-preservation that so many in DC work towards.
I can no longer believe it is about simple "heartfelt" beliefs. It's about control; it's about Marxist theology; it's about changing the US into something that is going to make us FIGHT!
Mark these words. The fight is coming!
The French had some good ideas:
Problem is ... cleaning up the mess of p*ss and sh*t that those puss**s would leave in their wake. They think they are ALL that. Very few have any street experience. They are from priveledge. That's why the Founding Fathers believed in short terms in Congress and the WH and go back to your hard farm life.
“He is a career Democrat hack with genuine credentials.”
Love your tag line. I was wondering how long it would take folks to make the connection between “vacation” (out of sight) and Ramadan. Wonder exactly where and what they were doing last year about this time? There are reports surfacing that the WH has already selected a replacement for Panetta. Any credible info out there?
A better man would have stayed and fought to the death. But a worse man, probably his replacement, will simply throw them into the arena for a show trial and ad bestia punishment.
I think it is very unwise for any politician to take on the rank and file people who do the day-to-day life threatening work required of their jobs. It’s one thing to play fast and loose with the political appointees who cycle through the building. But taking on the “full-timers” is a whole different ball game.
This is particularly true with The Marxist Onada who, demonstrably, seems to have much he wishes to hide.
I think it’s just another indicator that The Onada crowd is way out of its depth. Their anger, their hate and their self-rightousness makes them blind to reality.
As for Panetta, I’m having trouble seeing him as a CIA advocate. But, if it turns out his resignation is in protest to the Holder investigation my hat’s off to him.
By your name, I infer that you know a bit about the CIA. I am merely an amateur.
So my first question ... This seems like an existential battle here. Can the CIA exist as an effective organization with a mission, strategy, core competency, etc., under the sort of scrutiny/governance/intrusions that Obama is pursuing?
My general sense is no, but I am no expert. I would appreciate your opinion CIApilot.
Second question ... If this is an existential fight, am I correct in assuming that the CIA will do what it must to ensure its survival?
I understand the need for an intelligence agency, and one that sometimes does nasty work. But I am afraid, as well, especially when it is populated by the ilk that presently run the show. There is a temptation to be giddy at the prospect of Obama and the CIA libs pounding each other. But even a moment’s reflection suggests that no real good can come from this.
Am I right?
You’re right. How long is Ramadan? Are they mandated to not work during this time, but to pray and fast?
What do these photos mean?
Leon was always a loyal Clintonista, wasn’t he? If this rumor proves to be true, can it mean that a move by Hillary is far behind?
CIA is a bad agency to cross. Sen Church, and Congressman Pike were defeated right after they finished keelhauling CIA in public.
I will watch to see how Pelosi and Holder fare in the aftermath of their attempt to slaughter of our heroes.
So far no points on this at The Hill or other DC outlets,.such as Politico. If he does, the next person will worse.
