Many people have suggested that it is NOT “un-American” to support Obama and his actions in the Middle East or toward the Muslim Brotherhood.The Muslim Brotherhood has openly declared hostilities toward the U.S. and our allies. That makes them an enemy of this nation, not a “friend or partner.”
Recent revelations have made it relatively certain that Obama’s foreign policy includes the intentional and purposeful arming of America’s enemies — including Al Qaeda. Whether people like the word or not, this is treason. So I have to wonder, how can someone honestly tell themselves that it is “American” to arm this nation’s enemies? If you oppose the principles and ideals upon which this nation was founded, then — by definition — you are NOT an American. You may be a U.S. citizen, but you are certainly not an American.
Now, if these words upset you, do not get mad at me. If you do, that should suggest to you that my words are hitting too close to home for comfort. And if you tell yourself you are upset because you are trying to be “reasonable,” or “moderate,” or even trying to defend “freedom of speech,” then you are still walking on the wrong side of this issue. But here, if you are still among those who think I am taking too harsh a stance on this issue, read this article in the LIBERAL New York Times and then ask yourself, if a retired Admiral AND a liberal paper can both see and understand the problem with defending Obama but you still cannot, then you really do need to ask yourself: “Am I still an American?” In fact, you may want to ask whether you ever were:
LYONS: Obama needs to come clean on what happened in Benghazi
The American people deserve to know the truth
There is an urgent need for full disclosure of what has become the “Benghazi Betrayal and Cover-up.” The Obama national security team, including CIA, DNI and the Pentagon, apparently watched and listened to the assault on the U.S. consulate and cries for help but did nothing. If someone had described a fictional situation with a similar scenario and described our leadership ignoring the pleas for help, I would have said it was not realistic—not in my America – but I would have been proven wrong.
We now know why Ambassador Christopher Stevens had to be in Benghazi the night of 9/11 to meet a Turkish representative, even though he feared for his safety. According to various reports, one of Stevens’ main missions in Libya was to facilitate the transfer of much of Gadhafi’s military equipment, including the deadly SA-7 – portable SAMs – to Islamists and other al Qaeda-affiliated groups fighting the Assad Regime in Syria. In an excellent article, Aaron Klein states that Stevens routinely used our Benghazi consulate (mission) to coordinate the Turkish, Saudi Arabian and Qatari governments’ support for insurgencies throughout the Middle East. Further, according to Egyptian security sources, Stevens played a “central role in recruiting Islamic jihadists to fight the Assad Regime in Syria.”
Having been in a number of similar situations, I know you have to have the courage to do what’s right and take immediate action. Obviously, that courage was lacking for Benghazi. The safety of your personnel always remains paramount. With all the technology and military capability we had in theater, for our leadership to have deliberately ignored the pleas for assistance is not only in incomprehensible, it is un-American.
Somebody high up in the administration made the decision that no assistance (outside our Tripoli embassy) would be provided, and let our people be killed. The person who made that callous decision needs to be brought to light and held accountable. According to a CIA spokesperson, “No one at any level in the CIA told anybody not to help those in need.” We also need to know whether the director of CIA and the director of National Intelligence were facilitators in the fabricated video lie and the overall cover-up. Their creditability is on the line. A congressional committee should be immediately formed to get the facts out to the American people. Nothing less is acceptable.
So, if you are still an American, will you join me in defending America? If so, it starts by calling Benghazi what it is: evidence of treason!
