Anyone who believed such a plan could be set up and executed without anything “going wrong” had to be insane. Look at who would have to be trusted to do the kidnapping and the later release...what kind of people!
What would stop people like that from keeping the ambassador, not releasing him? Answer, nothing.
OR deliberately killing him AFTER pretending to go along with a kidnapping/release scheme? Answer, nothing.
And who would the person be who was trying to orchestrate all of this for Obama??
Would they have been working personally for Obama’s re-election, under the radar, OR, would they have had an official job with the American gov’t while pursuing this scheme for Obama on the side?
Just some questions that came to me when I tried to “imagine out” the scenario.
But they would have to be INSANE, whoever they were, to believe they could pull off such a plan, that they actually could’ve had control of events, when dealing with the people they would’ve had to deal with, to carry out the kidnapping and release.
The only thing I can think of, aside from that, is if a dummy operation were planned. That is, America, or Obama personally, had people who would pretend to be the kidnappers but could be counted on not to harm Stevens and to release him later.
But the dummy operation - if there was one - had to have ended up being CRASHED by real kidnappers or deliberate killers (depending on your POV).
Very bad neighborhood, eh?
Could it be that they live in an artificial world of Hollywood-supplied "experiences", where such plans actually do come off?
Liberals expect to be able to control all manner of things which are in no man's power, because they live insulated lives. Such illusions don't long survive contact with reality, which is why so many libs are found in occupations which shelter them from it (government, academia). A good stint of "cutting it" in the "real world" has a way of making one conservative, and not coincidentally unwilling to take such risks when so many factors are not controllable.
Besides which, liberals seem disposed to "use" people as means to a "greater" end, much like a farmer uses his livestock. After all, to them, we ARE animals, not beings created in God's image.
