Rice rewarded for falling on her sword as Donilon departs 

Democrat consultant Pat Caddell (right) shown here with President Jimmy Carter in 1977, called Tom Donilon the 'leaker-in-chief.' [White House Photograph]Imagine a Republican appointee going on numerous talk shows to repeat a fictional story about why U.S. property was attacked and Americans were killed in Libya. We all know what would happen if that Republican, instead of being penalized for falsehoods, earned a promotion, right?

It’s a good thing Susan Rice is a Democrat.

Films and rhetoric prostitute U.S. Navy SEALs for politics after railroading three

Excerpt from Navy SEAL ethos: Naval Special Warfare Website

Video: OPSEC Team

Most Americans are aware President Barack Obama agreed to send a special ops team to “get” Osama bin Laden in Pakistan in May, 2011.

Approximately one and a half years after that operation, two films are being released. Those releases come after ongoing publicity of the takedown

On the campaign trail Obama has oversold his own role in that operation, talking about it at every opportunity. It is his signature accomplishment among disasters like the ObamaCare Tax Bill and crony energy projects.

We are witnessing the prostitution of our Navy SEALs for political purposes. What many don't know is that this administration harrassed three of our SEALs on trumped up charges.

Ignore the controversy and read ‘No Easy Day’

Last year, members of the Navy SEAL elite counterterrorism unit set out on the mission America had waited for since September 11, 2001. We were finally going to get Osama bin Laden. Hours later, the leader of al Qaeda was in a body bag, and stories have circulated ever since on how the operation went down.

Considering the secrecy of our top-tier special operation forces, like SEAL Team Six, we were left to guess which of those accounts were accurate – if any truly were.

Former SEAL Matt Bissonnette was not just there, but saw bin Laden go down. Writing under the pseudonym Mark Owen, he published a detailed and accurate account of the battle, No Easy Day.

Romney’s 2007 debate response savvier than current administration on bin Laden

President Barack Obama recently implied former Gov. Mitt Romney wouldn’t have taken bin Laden down. However, as the video from Romney’s 2008 campaign suggests, that’s not the case. Furthermore, Romney’s approach is actually savvier than that of our current administration. Consider this:

ROMNEY: We move everything to get him. But I don’t want to buy into the Democratic pitch that this is all about one person, Osama Bin Laden, because after we get him, there’s gonna be another and another. This is about Shia and Sunni. This is about Hezbollah and Hamas and Al Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood. This is a worldwide jihadist effort to try to cause the collapse of all moderate Islamic governments and replace them with a caliphate. They ultimately want to bring down the United States of America. This is a global effort we’re going to have to lead to overcome this jihadist effort. It’s more than Osama Bin Laden, but he is gonna pay, and he will die.—Romney/GOP debate, 2007

In late April a senior State Dept. official told National Journal this:

’The war on terror is over,’ one senior State Department official who works on Mideast issues told me. ‘Now that we have killed most of al Qaida, now that people have come to see legitimate means of expression, people who once might have gone into al Qaida see an opportunity for a legitimate Islamism.’"

For some, it’s hard to wrap the brain around the concept of “legitimate Islamism.” We're still waiting for an explanation of that from our president.

Dual standards in promoting Obama on NBC by using the Navy SEALs

Snip from the US Navy SEALs Ethos. NBC News is promoting Brian Williams’ interview with President Barack Obama about the killing of Osama bin Laden, an operation that Americans were told took place in Pakistan. Williams interviewed U.S media’s favorite president in the Situation Room in the White House.

NBC’s ardor aside, here’s what no one has mentioned.

Scheuer unloads on US leaders and educators for war policy

Michael Scheuer has never been bashful. In his book The Looming Tower, author Lawrence Wright described Scheuer as “temperamental.” Scheuer  was CIA chief of the station charged with tracking Osama bin Laden during the 1990s when President Bill Clinton grossly underestimated the al Qaeda leader’s intentions towards the U.S.

Scheuer is an outspoken advocate of non-intervention in the affairs of other countries who don’t pose a threat to the U.S. I don’t know Scheuer’s politics, but I’d place him in alignment with the Libertarian camp on issues like foreign policy.

Will Harold Koh rap Obama's knuckles on multilateralism and bin Laden?

Updated on Wednesday, May 4, 2011 at 10:48AM by Registered CommenterKay B. Day, Editor

Who could forget leftwing furor over President George W. Bush’s prosecution of the War on Terror? From Code Pink to human rights wonks at the UN, Bush was assailed at every turn. There was a push to haul the US president before the International Court on issues like detainee interrogations, the prison at Guantanamo Bay and rendition.

What a difference the Oval Office makes. Last time I looked, Gitmo was still intact. Furthermore, I'm betting if he'd been given a choice, as soon as he saw those Navy SEALs, Osama bin Laden would've screamed, "Rendition, please?"
