Man Who Left Four to Die in Benghazi: “We don’t leave men and women in uniform behind”

Posted by on Jun 03, 2014 at 7:49 am

Does he really think people are this stupid? Of course he does.

As President Barack Obama starts his third overseas trip in less than three months, he finds himself once again peppered with questions about his foreign policy, even as he attempts to cement his own legacy on the world stage.

Obama landed Tuesday in Poland, his first stop, on a mission to reassure nervous allies in Eastern Europe after Russia’s incursion into Ukraine.

His three-nation journey comes as Republicans have unleashed a new line of attack questioning his judgment in exchanging five Taliban prisoners held at the U.S. detention center at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, for the return of a former prisoner of war, Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl.

At a news conference in Warsaw, Obama defended the decision.

“We don’t leave men and women in uniform behind,” the President said.

Chris Stevens and three others were unavailable for comment. Meanwhile, we’ve got a Marine languishing in a Mexican prison and Obama hasn’t lifted a finger to help him. Is there anyone in the media with the stones to call him out on this bullshit of his?

    I’m sure if Obama was called out on this apparent contradiction that his reply would be “Chris Stevens, Sean Smith and the two CIA contractors were NOT wearing uniforms”.

    “If I had a son in uniform, he would behave like Bowe. Hey… BO… that’s my dog’s name.”

    I suspect that, if you parse him as you would Bill Clinton, he means what he says.

    He stands with Islam — he would not leave a deserter and possible traitor (who converted to Islam) behind.

    Totally different from the decent people he left to die in Benghazi. So to an amoral person like Obama, there is no contradiction (nor are there morals, intellectual consistency, or honesty, but there you go).

    The brat’s legacy will be the attempted economic, social, and religious destruction of this country.

    “We don’t leave men and women in uniform behind,” the President said.

    Yet, the military has no respect whatsoever for Obama.

    Obama is leaving the entire US behind with his socialist reconstruction of the US. He wants to flood the US with cheap labor that will drive the US into a low-cost economy.

    He has single-handedly destroyed the US health care system. Practitioners spend up to 50% of their time filling out forms for the government which no one will ever read.

    His wife, with no license whatsoever, has destroyed the school lunch program. I want to see her fat ass eating nothing but lettuce for six weeks!

    Obama has allowed the destruction of his vaunted free immigration program by allowing thousands of Mexicans free access to the US.

    …and now he complains.

    His foreign policy is “run away and hide”. Putin has said that Obama’s foreign policy is “erectile disfunction”.

    Obama’s Veterans Administration is in disarray with illegal denial of services to veterans. Obama hates the military. He simply does not care.

    Obama’s FAA is refusing to hire capable Air Traffic Controllers in order for the incapable to guide our aircraft.

    Obama has used the IRS to prosecute his political opponents.

    Obama’s EPA is destroying US energy production, for whatever purpose he has. Well, his purpose is to force the US into a third-world country, where his minions will have control of the peasants.

    Obama’s Treasury is devaluing the dollar with Obama’s grandioses monetary policies.

    Obama’s FBI is attacking his political opponents.

    Obama attacks land-holders and lease-holders via the Bureau of Land management. Obama must have control.

    Obama’s major accomplishment is playing golf.

    Obama should return his Nobel Peace Prize. Obama is a loser among losers.

    Obama should resign (except for his VP, Joe Biden, who is in the thrall of the crime syndicates in Las Vegas). Biden is more brain dead than is Obama.

    The only solution to Obama is for we citizens to rise up and deny him.

    The United States, as we once knew her, has been assassinated by Obama while we watched “reality TV”.

    The Democrats used the specter of the “first black president” to use Obama as a tool.

    God, if she exists, help us all.

    ” Is there anyone in the media with the stones to call him out on this bullshit of his?”

    Rhetorical question no doubt. You would have to use a crow bar to pry the vaunted US Media off of his ass as they treat it like a remora treats a shark.

    To say that it is easy to critique in retcsopert is to relieve leaders of an essential responsibility in diplomatic realms. US diplomats don’t get killed. The fallout can’t be projected and can’t be budgeted for. While tragic is is difficult to compare the murder of a top ranking diplomat to the loss of UN personnel and service volunteers for potential tragedy. A later post on this theme refers to the nuclear power industry and the essential role of continuously running through the possible scenarios. Fukushima is an example of the fact that it is not acceptable to relieve those in charge of a significant blunder. Could a tidal wave be anticipated? Yes, we are talking Japan. Could it have been ignored. Again yes, obviously. There was no suggestion that the consequences of this strategic failure should be accepted as a learning experience or a cost of doing business. While there is no radiation cloud passing over the field there is the danger posed by the poisoning of diplomatic solutions to otherwise deadly and violent circumstances. There is reason why this happened and those responsible must be held accountable not pardoned in hindsight. I know two people that work for the State Department and are often overseas in dangerous circumstances. The possibility of being killed in the line of duty is not acceptable to either of them. They are not John Wayne heroes looking death in the face. They are professionals doing a job they expect to retire from. They expect the full support of their superiors to assure that retirement party. It has been over 30 years since a senior US diplomat was killed by terrorists or politically motivated extremists and only five that I can discover with a little quick history check. In the last 30 years there have been Three Mile Island, Chernobyl, Fukushima to name a few nuclear horror stories. We should be anxious to at least maintain that comparison. If there is responsibility in the decision making process or establishment of policy it needs to be addressed with the fervor that will ensure safety for these men and women. We are not talking about the death of one man but the possible closure or restriction of peaceful communications that might result in many more deaths. All better now.
