Politico Rushes to Protect Their Precious Obama After Devastating Report

Posted by on Sep 13, 2012 at 10:42 pm

They just can’t let go of their sweet Dear Leader, no matter how damning the news is. It’s pretty sad at this point.

A U.S. official told POLITICO: “There’s no intelligence indicating that the attack in Benghazi was premeditated.”

That “official” is unnamed, of course. And  how can this be trusted since Obama studiously avoids intelligence briefings?
Meanwhile, in case they want to start  making up some excuses for their next blunder:
Egypt’s General Intelligence Service warned that a jihadi group is planning to launch terrorist attacks against the US and Israeli embassies in Cairo, according to a report Tuesday by Egypt Independent, citing a secret letter obtained by Al-Masry Al-Youm.

According to the report, the attack is being planned by Global Jihad, the group suspected of killing 16 Egyptian border guards in Sinai on August 5.

Al-Masry Al-Youm reportedly obtained a copy of the September 4 letter, sent to all Egyptian security sectors, warning that Sinai- and Gaza-based Global Jihad cells were planning attacks on the two embassies.

It’s worth noting all that predates the feigned outrage over that silly YouTube video.

    What does Politico have to say about West African Muslumps’ depiction of our revered Chief Executive as a tattooed cannibal with a bone through his nostril, and Moochelle arrayed as a Ubangi-shari mammy with full tribal apurtenances including a steatopygous derriere?

    Politico is just another part of the Palace Guard Media. So much for any claims of objectivity…

    “not an ally”
    obama just ceded the suez canal, completely, to egypt’s control.

    it was a rare admission/assessment of their foreign policy failure.

    as soon as any aid were to be lessened, to a point worth noting, they take the canal and the money starts flowing in again.

    it is a straight up economic gamble…would the US pay for another foreign war, or just pony up 6 billion a year in bribe money?

    6 billion a year for the canal, when the yearly going rate in Afghanistan is 120 billion a year…this admin would pay it, under the table, shuffled through the IMF, quickly.

    Politico’s been going down for Obama since its inception, so it’d hardly be surprising if they’re also willing to go down for him as well. Journalistic integrity no longer matters given how far these folks have destroyed their trade for Party loyalty, totalizing power-enabling ideology über alles.

    Not premeditated? They used fucking MORTARS! Look, if I anticipate potential problems, I’ll carry a sidearm. Not a mortar. A mortar is a crew served weapon. Even in the worst shithole countries, you never find someone “casually” carrying a mortar. You only have one, along with crew and ammunition if you are PLANNING to use it.

    Apparently, Politico, as well as the White House, thinks we are stupid.

    It’s a pretty sad state of affairs when US government leakers don’t trust US newspapers not to out them to the administration.

    I quit reading Politico after those racists did the hit job on Herman Cain.

    They have become irrelevant.

    Obama WON’T take his Daily Briefing (PDB) on 9/11, or 9/12 . . .
    Hillary Clinton and his State Dept. send out messages worthy of the Neville Chamberlain Foreign Office in 1938. . .
    and their so-called “Middle East policy” is destroyed by the Islamist jihadis and terrorists.
    It is Jimmy Carter, all over again !

    And the media have been so helpful in finding and standing outside the home of the “disgusting” filmmaker and sending pictures of his street and home around the world and giving out all the personal information they can to the poor sad Muslims.

    Maybe they will get a medal from the prez.

    I got an idea. We counter this by saying that Mikey Moore made the film. We can watch the violent death dealing mobs of the religion of Peace go after him, and watch the left dissappear up their own backsides between appeasing murderous muslims and defending their favorite Hollywood fatcat.

    Did you also notice quite a few of them had Guy Fawkes masks on? All this is obvious premeditation. What a coincidence, on the way to a protest, RPG’s, Guy Fawkes masks, and incinderies just happened to be laying around.
