The Morning Rant: J.V. Edition

Defending our interests throughout the world means, first and foremost, defending our friends and allies! And under Obama's watch, we failed, and spectacularly so. Or perhaps we succeeded, since Iran and its anti-Western acolytes did rather well during the Obama administration's reign of terror.

Through inattention, stupidity, sloth, or active malice we allowed the imprisonment and murder of many of the people who risked the most for America. Sure, there were mercenaries among them, but there were also many people who believed; in freedom and self determination, or who simply chafed at being governed by evil.

We let them down, we let them die, and we must never let that happen again.

Under Obama, the CIA Suffered a 'Catastrophic' Disaster

This is simply stunning. A rollup of networks across the world -- an event that began in Iran, where the Obama administration would soon enough be negotiating its much sought-after "nuclear deal framework," and ended with numerous deaths is the kind of thing of which intelligence nightmares and national-security disasters are made. One's first instinct is to look back and see who was CIA director during that period: Leon Panetta (Feb. 2009-June 2011); Michael Morell (acting director, July-Sept. 2011); David Petraeus (Sept. 2011-Nov. 2012); Morell again (acting, Nov. 2012-March 2013); and finally John Brennan, who served out the remainder of the Obama administration.
Imagine a CIA officer in some foreign country trying to convince someone to assist the United States of America in its fight for freedom and self-determination. That will be a tough slog, because the last people who helped are now hanging from the gibbets at the local secret police outpost, courtesy of the U.S. government.

This was touched upon last night be the estimable Misanthropic Humanitarian, but it needs to be squashed, and squashed hard! it is simply insanity, so it fits rather well with the other Leftist ideas for gun control. But just imagine what could be gleaned from a cursory check of your comments here?
