The Importance Of Ignoring Dick Cheney

Share

President Obama has taken to heart at least two hard-won lessons from nearly six years in office: Don’t treat September 11 like any other day, and don’t entrust your fate to Congress.

There’s a third one that I hope he will stick with, even in the face of Islamic State advances and horrific executions, and that is to ignore demands like this one this week from former vice president Dick Cheney at the American Enterprise Institute: “Our president must understand we are at war and that we must do what it takes, for as long as it takes, to win.”

Presidents and presidential candidates have gotten into trouble by describing the “war” on terror as hinging mainly on intelligence and law enforcement. Secretary of State John Kerry, running in 2004, even said the goal was to reduce terrorism to a “nuisance.” Bush-era officials used the same word, noting back then that terrorist attacks did not change military outcomes or signify political influence.

Nuisance is a jarring term, given the savagery and nihilism of terrorist tactics, and in any case it doesn’t apply at this point in history, with the Islamic State making inroads in Syria and Iraq. Yet Cheney, at the opposite extreme, is also wrong. A great nation should not talk about going to war against rogue bands of barbarians. That elevates them to a level they don’t deserve or warrant.

Obama was at the nuisance end of the spectrum — seeming entirely too casual and distracted — in 2012. In the stretch run of his re-election campaign, he and his administration appeared to be caught off guard by the September 11 murder of the U.S. ambassador to Libya and three other Americans in an attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi. But this year, with the grisly videotaped beheadings of U.S. journalists James Foley and Steven Sotloff fresh in the minds of Americans, Obama is engaged in highly visible, high-stakes preparations to “degrade and destroy” the Islamic State perpetrators.

While he is making polite noises about consulting with Congress, the president has no intention of seeking a vote on his plans. A year ago, Obama asked lawmakers to authorize air strikes against the Syrian government because it had crossed his “red line” by using chemical weapons. Americans were largely opposed, Congress was divided, and the outcome on Capitol Hill was uncertain. Obama found an escape hatch when Russian president Vladimir Putin offered a plan to destroy Syria’s chemical weapons.

This week, Obama told congressional leaders he has the authority he needs to go after the Islamic State. The wisdom of that approach was immediately apparent. House Speaker John Boehner and House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi did not press for a vote after meeting with Obama — they know many members don’t want one. Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell, by contrast, said Obama “should be seeking congressional approval, period,” whether he thinks he needs it or not. But that would invite gridlock, grandstanding, knee-jerk Obama rejectionism — all the hallmarks of a Congress that two-thirds in a new CNN poll rated the worst in their lifetimes. It’s a risk Obama shouldn’t take.

There are of course honest differences among lawmakers about what we should be doing, and to some extent they mirror the larger picture. In that CNN poll, 36 percent said Obama is too cautious, 28 percent said he is not cautious enough, and 35 percent said his approach is about right. Whatever he does, he likely won’t please even half the country.

That said, a round of new polls suggests Americans are increasingly anxious about terrorism and receptive to military action. In a Wall Street Journal/NBC poll, 47 percent said the nation is less safe now than before the 9/11 attacks. That’s up from 28 percent last year. In addition, 61 percent said military action against the Islamic State would be in the national interest, compared with only 21 percent who felt that way a year ago about striking Syria.

The precipitating factor appears to be the beheadings of the journalists. An extraordinary 94 percent said they had seen, read or heard news of the incidents, only 6 percent had not.

For now, Obama has the public behind him and a chance to demonstrate that he’s learned a few more lessons, such as how to manage what he calls the “theater” and “optics” of the presidency and how to sound assertive without setting deadlines or issuing ultimatums that fall by the wayside. My hope is that he holds fast to a middle ground and avoids past mistakes, both his own and Cheney’s. No red lines, no declarations of war without end and no undermining his own passion and commitment with an ill-timed round of golf.

    The man most responsible for the destabilization of Iraq and the Persian Gulf region, the man most responsible for the death of 4,500 young American troops and the maiming of over 20,000, the man responsible for the death of as many as 600,000 Iraqis and 2 million fleeing Iraq to save their lives, and the man most responsible for wasting $1.7B for political and economic reasons, does not deserve our attention or respect. The best thing to do is to ignore him, ostracize him, and remind everyone of what he did and the long term consequences of his arrogant and greedy policies.

        I agree. ISIS substituted Al Qaeda in Iraq, an organization that emerged after we removed Saddam Hussein from power, because they disagree with the limited scope of AQ goals. The ISIS goals goes much further than terrorist attacks and executions, what they really want is the creation of autonomous Islamic states, the implementation of Sharia law, total obedience, and expelling every single Westerner and our influence from their homelands. The scope of their primary goal is the globalization of radical Islam, using medieval Caliphates to achieve that goal.

        Yeah, I love Faux News’ rewriting of history. We are out of Iraq under an agreement drawn up by George W. Bush before he left. Obama took a lot of flak for not accelerating the schedule, but to his credit he also didn’t try to pressure al-Maliki into letting us stay longer.

        The Republicans (and their cheerleaders on this site) want al-Maliki’s incompetence to be confused with the weakness and incompetence they wish to see in Obama (see comment below for example). Because war gets Republicans elected. At least it gets them elected more surely than anything else they’ve tried in this election season. Suddenly flaming pseudo-Nazi authority slut/gasbags get transformed into — well, actually they’re not any different at all, but suddenly they look a tad more credible to the average voter. Particularly if the media is complicit in stoking the public’s fears.

      No that title belongs and is well earned by Obama. When he took over the war in Iraq was won, the war in Afghanistan was fundamentally over.

      You also seem to forget that once Barak’s rules of engagement were enacted our troops had Record causalities EVERY month. Why?? because barak placed more value on moooslim lives rather than our troops

            My point was, you first must acquire the facts, before you call the other fellow’s facts into contention. There are few things as obvious at this point, that the Iraqi War was not, “won,” by any yardstick you want to use. And, absolutely no one understanding the facts, thinks the war in Afghanistan was fundamentally over, as you claim. Then, your last comment, whatever you’re trying to
            allude to, is not just wrong, but stupidly so. And
            asserts that the President of the U.S. somehow
            altered the way we’re prosecuting the war in Afghanistan. And so favors the enemy, due to some
            lying cocksucker’s estimation. For which neither of
            you have the slightest idea what you’re talking about, and don’t care. Because you’re just slinging shit, for whatever you get out of shit slinging. It’s

            There isn’t a single military member of historian that would agree with you. The Iraq war was won hands down.
            The data on causalities in Afghanistan is easily obtainable. There were RECORD causalities EVERY year Barak’s rules of engagement were in place. Even a low information poster can access the data but then again we agree that you only have 1/2 a brain.

            We “won” in Iraq the same way we “won” in Vietnam: decades of “victories” without ever winning over the people or establishing even a reliable puppet government, all without purpose in any case.

        Bush and Cheney “inflamed” the region, but then, if – like you – I supported liars and war criminals, I wouldn’t be too eager to advertise it. Nothing like projecting your side’s lies and stupidity on those who opposed it.

            The one term that he did get right, at least technically and etymologically, is “emperor.” When Julius Caesar took over the Roman state, he dared not call himself a king (REX) because Romans had hated kings since they kicked out the Etruscans. So he went by his military title, Commander of the Troops (IMPERATOR), which eventually became “emperor” in English, and came to refer to the kind of autocrat that Julius Caesar and his successors became (and since the “empire” (IMPERIUM) was a collection of countries under kings who were puppets of Rome, another meaning of “emperor” is a “king of kings”).

            So technically, EVERY President of the United States is the Commander In Chief, or “imperator,” of all the armed forces. But the last few Republican holders of that office have behaved much more LIKE an emperor than this one, who was legally elected, and legally QUALIFIED to be elected, and the United States is nothing at all like the old Soviet Union. Ask the members of the Khrushchev family who have become Americans and have written books about their experiences: his son Sergei Khrushchev, a professor of political science, and granddaughter (Sergei’s niece) Nina Khrushcheva.

            Before Obama our country was beginning to resemble more of a third world plutocracy with leaders (and their financial backers — oh, let’s be honest and call them MASTERS) ambitious to rule the world and drive hard working middle class Americans into poverty. And despite Obama, the Greedy Oil People are still exercising quite a bit of fascist control for the time being, until voters wake up and VOTE their own interests.

            You are right I do not know any Muslims. I only see what is happening around the world by Muslims. My daughter was wanting to hire a black Muslim girl as an au pair last year from Germany. She thought it would be nice to have someone from the other side staying with them so their children could learn from the experience. The girl rejected them because they were Jewish, and said she would not be able to sleep in their home.

            22.3% of the world is Muslim. Most want the same things everyone want. There faith is demanding and full of laws. Other faiths have laws. I know Jews that won’t eat at my house because I’m not kosher. Because I have respect for peoples faith and they respect my faith. I spent 6 years working for and with Muslims, I spent 5 years working for and with Jews, My Boss right now is a Black Baptist Woman. They all have treated me well. I’ve never been one for stereo types. Most blacks aren’t on welfare, most Jews aren’t rich, Most Muslims don’t want war. I spend 40 hours a week dealing with the public and the vast majority of them are good. If you study history you will find somewhere in the past most religions have done things in the name of God that God wouldn’t approve of. ISIS is killing fellow Muslims as well as every other faith. The Arab League has sign on to fight them. Turkey is against them. ISIS will fall.

Within that zone, search and seizure laws have been suspended. A politicians mantra seems to be “never let a tragedy go to waste”. I saw the patriot act as a power grab by the government, using Americas fears to take away our rights.

            Back to the store at hand Bush, i.e. Chaney expanded the power of the president more the anyone in modern time. G.W. used to write notes on what he wasn’t going to enforce in the bills he signed. If you look at Obamas record he isn’t much better but at least he is open about it. What I find funny is that if you look at what Obama has done and how he has done it you would think he was a moderate Republican. Bush looked more like LBJ and Obama more like Nixon.

In this respect, U prove the point of Liberal/Progressives (such as myself) that propose that no conservative policy has any Earthly value whatever. I’ll let U disprove that of course (if U can), but by abjectly failing to dismantle the policy-sets in place when he took office, President Obama doomed his own administration to the failures U allude to, simply by refusing to implement the Liberal/Progressive policies he ran upon during the campaign seasons (’08 & ’12). In other words, failure can be the ONLY outcome, when utilizing conservative policies – no matter how framed. And THAT truly, is what’s sad…

          An estimated 45,000 Americans annually die of diseases for which they were not treated because they lacked the money for self pay or the insurance coverage … and in some cases they DID get health insurance, but too late to save them.

          That works out mathematically to 15 repetitions of the 9/11 attacks EVERY year, at least in lives lost. Now it is starting to get better with Obamacare, EXCEPT in states that refuse to allow the poorest among us to get the Medicaid subsidy, and refuse even to allow state universities to TELL people how to get a policy they may qualify for without Medicaid. This is causing more rural hospitals to close, which will cost lives of people who live in those areas, even if they HAVE insurance.

          So, if 9/11 was THAT bad, what about having it happen 15 times a year? That was what the PRIVATE insurance company DEATH PANELS were causing, and for some people are still causing.

There is a war going on and it is more bigger and deadlier than that in the Middle East. It is the war against Global corporations who are consolidating everything from energy, agriculture to manufacturing. The war between the 1% and the 99% where the disparity gap is growing and the middle class is disappearing. Like Putins Russia whose cronies are in control of everything and they allow for no opposition what so ever, politically and economically. This is the way the world is shaping up. The trillionaires and billionaires who control every facet of worldly processes. Who use countries assets, men, women, military hardware to get what they want. They control the political process the manufacturing process, the financial process, education to food production. Yes maybe we are starting to finally see the Protocol of the Learned Elders!!!!

    Last night the terrorists won. At least on NPR (not my regular news channel).

    First, the anchorcritters could not stop talking about how scary ISIS was. Of course, you might say that anyone who singles out journalists for murderous attention will probably scare journalists more than anyone else.

    George W. Bush got one thing right in the war on terror: don’t act like the terrorists are the most important issue for your administration. I think every politician, of either party, learned that lesson from Jimmy Carter’s self-imprisonment in the Rose Garden during the Iran hostage crisis (I know, that may be an unfair characterization, but in politics, characterization is everything, and unfairness is…what? I forget…). Unfortunately, Bush (and Cheney) were so good at not getting all worked up over al Qaeda and bin Laden because they really weren’t getting all worked up over al Qaeda and bin Laden.

    Obama, on the other hand, up until now, had been getting it exactly right. He has been taking out the leadership — slowly but most surely — of every terrorist group that attacked U.S. interests or those of its allies, wherever they were. Without invading other countries or putting their leaders on trial. And he still has the bandwidth to react when Putin starts getting frisky.

    Now maybe he’s giving that up. ISIS certainly hopes so. They hate not being at the top of the news.

      What you say about ISSL, “winning,” last night, with Obama’s announcement of the goal to degrade, and destroy the terrorist organization, has some validity. As the leadership has intentionally goaded the U.S. into some form of engagement with the beheading of two American citizens, and posting it on U-Tube. So, they think they got what they wanted. What they’re hoping for of course, is another Bush like invasion. And what the President proposed, was not that. Risky? Very. Complicated? Hellishly so. But, it is also something the overwhelming number of war weary Americans, have demanded. Namely that, “something,” be done about ISSL. And so it will be. But also beyond that. It has been our tradition whenever genocidal maniacs start digging trenches, and herding innocents, women, and children into them to be executed. Americans to our everlasting credit, feel a deep moral obligation to do whatever is necessary to stop it. Who was it that said, “Being an American, and standing up, and supporting what is the right, and honorable thing to do, is always easy?” The answer would be, no one ever said that. And there’s good reason of course. It’s never been easy.

    Obama should not ignore Cheney. He should do to Cheney the exact same thing the Torys in Congress do to him: Beg to differ on everything Cheney says.

    Cheney is a serial liar. Everything he said in eight years as V.P. was false — the man literally got NOTHING right.

    Yet he continues to act like he thinks he is the final authority on everything; continues to insist that all of his easily disproved lies are true, continues to insist that the same disastrous advice which led us to war be repeated, continues to insist that we are all ingrates for not thanking him for his “service” to the country.

    Cheney is a vile sack of excrement clumsily disguised as a human being who has absolutely nothing but the worst of intentions for America. His advice should not be ignored; it should be viewed as a warning. If Cheney says you should do something and it turns out you’re already doing it: Stop immediately.

    “In a Wall Street Journal/NBC poll, 47 percent said the nation is less safe now than before the 9/11 attacks.” . . . How can anyone say that the U.S. is less safe now than before the 9/11 attacks? The U.S. was obviously supremely unsafe before the 9/11 attacks, judging by what happened on September 11, 2001. Is the threat to the U.S. greater now than it was then? (One thing that makes the U.S. safer now than then is the fact that Cheney is not the V.P. and Dubya is at home in Texas where he belongs.)

    The common thread on both sides of this argument are the fundamentalist elements that hold so much sway & influence – over there & here in the states. We’ve already had that debate & enshrined into law is a specific commandment that ‘our’ personal religious faiths are to remain so. Yet, our current President continues to be beat about the head & ‘persona’ over it, by American jihadists & ‘sharia law-enthusiasts’ committed to & obsessed w/the inner-workings of our homes & our minds, EXACTLY like the jihadists & sharia law-enthusiasts over seas. And President Obama? This poor man is a prisoner of his own ambitions, now trapped by the un-American, anti-Democracy remnants of the last administration which force him to, in order to look strong & in control, appear ‘like’ them (conservatives of the previous administration), forgetting that Liberals do Democracy better than they do war & compared to conservatives, do both extraordinarily better than conservatives. This is what the nation thought we’d be getting, but more often, this seems more a continuation of the previous administration than the restoration of our ‘original’ Liberal/Progressive Democracy, as we thought we had voted for in 2008…

    I’ve developed a philosophy regarding stories like this: unless a Republican politician is a currently-serving politician or running for elected office, IGNORE THEM!
    Since Evil Dick Cheney is neither, ignoring him is the best idea. This also means ignoring Sarah Palin, Rick Santorum and nearly everyone on Fox “News”, the cable TV propaganda arm of the Fascist Republican Party and the Fascism-suborning Libertarian Party.
    By giving attention to these Fascist and corrupt ideologues, you give them more power. On Fridays, when the National Memo puts out “This Week In Crazy”, I share it on Facebook because there’s at least one story in the “bottom five” where a GOP politician or a Republican running for elected office is involved.
    Even the so-called “Liberal” media, or most of them, at least, fail to realize to how much of a superminority these insane and corrupt Fascists cater. Bloviating gasbag/”recovering” drug addict Rush Limbaugh is the perfect example of that. Limbaugh makes the dubious claim of having 15 million “distinct” listeners per week. I believe it is the same 3 million listeners five days a week, hence, the 15 million figure, but, for the sake of argument, let’s say Rushie Righttard does have 15 million listeners…
    The population of this country is roughly 315 million, give or take a million. That means, for every ONE person who listens to his Fascist Reich-Wing Nut Job drivel, there are TWENTY (20) who don’t. that’s less than five percent of the country’s population. FIVE PERCENT, people….if it’s only 3 million “Dittoheads” (dumbasses is a better term) per week, that’s less than ONE PERCENT of the population.
    Seriously, people: why are we letting a huge superminority of Fascist ideologues run the politics and social debate in this country?!? It takes millions of fearful, ignorant and cognitive dissonance-addled followers of a Fascist regime to keep that regime going. Unfortunately, the GOP have several dozen millions of people that fit the bill: GOP Progressives and Moderates. Progressives and Moderates in the GOP are two groups of people within the Republican Party to whom the party’s leadership, the Fascist and psychopathic Cons, refer to as “Useful Idiots”. And, when Progressives and Moderates vote for the GOP, they prove those Fascist and psychopathic Cons correct.
    Evil Dick Cheney is a Fascist and psychopathic Con. But, because he’s no longer serving as a politician nor is he running for elected office, we should everything we can to IGNORE HIM!

      That would be, “Thank goodness,” because Cheney has been consistently correct, or incorrect, as to his prognostications about Iraq? That since we didn’t find WMDs, we’ll just need to take his
      word for it, that Saddam did have them. But he just hid them really, really, well? Or, that by predicting roses would be strewn in front of our troops, by a grateful Iraqi populous. Who would view them as liberators. Cheney actually meant, that since Iraq is a desert country, their equivalent to roses, was actually, celebratory IEDs. they were strewing. Or his other predictions, that the war to disarm Saddam, who was in cahoots with Al Qaeda, and so it was absolutely essential for National Security, to go in guns a blazing. Plus, it would only take just a few weeks, and cost U.S. taxpayers nothing. As the same grateful Iraqi people who welcomed us in, would gladly reimburse the costs. That would, at the very most, amount to no more than a few hundred million dollars. Was what merely amounted to Mr. Cheney making an honest mistake of omitting the last three zeros from an otherwise spot on cost analysis. But, as he contended, whatever the costs, it would be well worth the effort. To rid the World of one of it’s most ruthless dictators, and in the process, create a vibrant, thriving, and stable democracy in the heart of the Mid-East. So, what’s Mr.
      Cheney batting so far?

          President Obama risked his very presidency to order the attack that killed the world’s most notorious terrorist — Osama Bin Laden. During his presidency he has ordered actions that have killed hundreds of top terrorists — most of them Muslim terrorists. Since you obviously lie endlessly about Obama (because he’s black, of course), tell us all why we shouldn’t believe that you are a closet terrorist angry over Obama’s killing of your brethren.

            He has killed some terrorists but has killed more of our troops with his rules of engagement which placed more value on mooooslim lives then our guys.

            Torture did not provide any information that led to Bin Laden. That’s what the intelligence community said, so why do you think that we’ll be believing your lies? It’s very simple:

            Bush + Torture = No Bin Laden

            Obama – Torture = Bin Laden Sleeps With The Fishes

            ISIS terrorists are no more Muslim than redneck bigots are Christian. Both are headed for an eternity in the lake of fire.

            You are unquestionably one of those vile, despicable, and utterly worthless Tea-Bigots that all of America despises — correct? You could have earned extra points for telling us about the snake flag(s) flying in front of your trailer.

            I don’t recall any guy ‘tasked with taking down Obama’. So much for your ‘intelligence games’.

            There was never any information gained by way of torture that led to Bin Laden. Here is a link to an AP article about the issue. http://news.yahoo.com/senate-report-torture-didnt-lead-bin-laden-161207841–politics.html.

            Naturally those guilty of despicable acts would like to have us believe that they were useful instead of just despicable, but nobody really believes it other than those who just want to believe it.

            ISIS is no more Muslim than you are Christian. Just as Timothy McVeigh wasn’t really a Christian as proven by his vile acts that did not follow any sort of Christian values, so too ISIS terrorists do not follow Muslim values.

            For your information, Nazis were not socialists — they were fascists. That means that they are much closer to the American Tea Party than they are any form of socialism. It’s called ‘fascism’.

            Everybody knows that it’s the redneck bigots who are the biggest freeloaders in America, greedily slurping up the hard-earned taxes of the far more productive workers in the liberal ‘blue’ states. Lying about self-sufficiency isn’t the same thing as practicing it.

            You Tea Bigots have never done anything worthwhile for anyone, and certainly not for America. Everyone knows that you are the reincarnation of the KKK, and you hate everyone who isn’t old, white, and racist. I know that God put rednecks on this Earth to give real people somebody to slap around without feeling guilty, and I hesitate to question God’s will, but vile and despicable Tea Bigots have to be the most worthless assholes on the entire planet. All you people can do is whine, snivel and squeal about Obama incessantly because he’s black and better than you in every way.

            But just remember that Obama is your leader, and you will just be a good little bigot and behave yourself. Nobody is really giving you a choice in the matter. So why don’t you just go back inside your trailer and guzzle some Budweiser, turn on Here Comes Honey Boo-Boo, hump your sister or whatever it is you must do to get your idiotic self to calm down because honestly — real Americans can just barely tolerate you as it is. And for the love of God, please learn how to wash yourself. With soap.

            I an see that I’m dealing with one of the Tea-Bigot ‘unsmart’ crowd.

            There are 12 men and 3 women on the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, which authored the report. So what you are telling me is that the 12 men have all managed to become ‘dykes’? Eight members are Democrats and 7 members are GOP goobers.

            So you would favor the claims of people who are facing possible actions for misconduct and/or crimes — right? That says volumes about your honesty and integrity — in this case, the lack of it.

            Nobody who commits crimes and violates the principles of a religion can claim to be a follower of that religion. This includes terrorists like ISIS and Timothy McVeigh. It also includes vile assholes like Tea Party members, who are actually much closer to the Nazi mindset than any other group in the US today. Nazis are fascists and racists, like the Tea Party. Both came to be reviled by the entire world because of their despicable hate and vile behavior towards other people.

            Just because Nazi has been translated into National Socialist doesn’t mean that the Nazis are socialists. In fact, Hitler hated socialism, but many people believe that he used the word in the party’s title to trick people into joining the party in it’s early days when it was struggling for power. This too is very similar to the Tea Bigots: The name ‘Tea Party’ was chosen to give the false impression that these bitter bigots were concerned with taxation or patriotism, when the reality is that they care nothing about either. Tea Bigots are some of the biggest advocates for big government spending, and the vast majority of them are living at least partially on public benefits of some kind.

            Of course you will lie about all of this, because Tea Bigots are notorious for being despicable liars. Tea bigots hate having a black President, because it reminds them that they are not at all superior to black people. That’s the whole reason that the Tea Bigots formed their lying, hateful party. The problem for these walking heaps of pigshit is that all the world is sick and tired of them, and they have the lowest approval rating of any group. My guess is that their popularity is about the same as projectile vomit and buzzard shit.

            So the redneck Tea Bigots may whine, snivel and cry about being the losers they are just as long as they otherwise behave themselves. Real people will rightly slap them down when they get out of line, and that’s exactly the reason that God put them on this Earth in the first place. Real people can slap around Tea Bigots without feeling guilty, but they can’t do this to other real people because, well — that just wouldn’t be right.

Enhanced interrogation is not crime especially when it was done to enemy combatants who could have been hung on the battle field with no trial.

            There is no shortage of examples of murderers and child molesters who call themselves Christians, either. Just what is that issue that keeps rearing it’s ugly head among the Catholic priesthood, hmm?

            Let me ask you this question: Who did you like better — the Muslim terrorist Osama Bin Laden or the Christian terrorist Timothy McVeigh? Feel free to explain why Christians murdering children is better than Muslims murdering children.

            So are you talking about Ricardo Sanchez — the same Sanchez implicated in the Abu Ghraib scandal? It’s interesting that you would pretend to have access to classified information, but not surprising I suppose. But we all know that the fact of the matter is that an intercepted telephone call from Bin Laden’s courier was the big event that led to finding Bin Laden — not torture. And torture didn’t authorize the mission to kill Bin Laden — a black President did that, albeit much to your everlasting dismay.

            Look, I get it: You are full of hate and wish all manner of evil upon people who aren’t like you — that’s nothing new. What IS relatively new is that American society for the most part no longer widely tolerates bigotry, racism, and hate crimes. War crimes are still crimes, and torture is one of them.

At least McVeigh had a reason for his actions a President and an Attorney General that thought killing folks at Ruby Ridge for a reasonable action and Waco. Considering that not 1 Fed was brought up on charges for their actions.
            No there was no intercepted phone call from a courier. It was the information obtained under W that resulted in binladens demise. Sanchez is a national hero
            Yes Barak authorized the mission after nixing it 4 other times.
            Unfortunately its guys like you that never wore a uniform or did anything for your country ala Barak that think you understand our warriors and CIA.

What I’m certain of is the fact that you are both a coward and pretty worthless to this country — attributes shared by all racists and bigots.

            There absolutely was an intercepted telephone call from al-Kuwaiti that led to Bin Laden, despite your lying. You don’t even have to Google for it — here’s a link: http://www.washingtonpost.com/world/national-security/death-of-osama-bin-laden-phone-call-pointed-us-to-compound–and-to-the-pacer/2011/05/06/AFnSVaCG_story.html#

            You see? I KNEW that you liked Timothy McVeigh. How do you think I knew that? Keep apologizing for terrorists and see where that gets you.

            As for civil rights, just understand that things are only going to get tougher and tougher for bigots, so you may as well learn to plan ahead. There are a number of legal actions being taken by the DOJ against goober states who still haven’t learned their lesson. Believe me, legislation will be enacted to correct bigoted antics. It’s just a matter of time, really. The day of the bigot is over.

            But the real issue that will make life uncomfortable for you bigots is the fact that society is stamping out redneck bigots in every corner of public and private life. Young people today don’t tolerate the antics of bitter old Klan members (a/k/a Tea Party), and with each and every passing day bigots and racists become more and more marginalized. The generation that will one day make European Caucasians an absolute minority has already been born. Perhaps some day in the not-too-distant future laws will be enacted that outlaw simply being a redneck racist, and this country will start storing it’s garbage in the prison system. Who knows?

            I guess it’s really too bad that you are so infuriated that a black man is your leader. Nobody really cares that you don’t like it. Better get your ya-yas out while you still can.

            I never said that Bin Laden’s telephone call was intercepted, rather, I said his courier (al-Kuwaiti) made a call that was intercepted. The call led to the identity of the courier. The courier led to Bin Laden.

            BTW, that’s Mister Obama to you. He’s your leader, and whatever decisions he makes within the authority given to the President of the United States, you will accept and obey them and that’s that.

            Obama has already kicked you redneck bigots’ asses but good. In fact, he’s beaten you rednecks so badly that he makes you look like a bunch of drunken trailer-monkeys. No matter how much you whine and snivel, he’s the President and you’re not. Oh yes — one more thing: He’s superior to you and he’s black.

            I understand how frustrated you must be: Barack Obama has already achieved more than you ever will. He’s smarter than you, more popular than you, wealthier than you, and he could kick your ass anytime he wanted. See? You were wrong about being superior all along.

            Look, I know that you rednecks aren’t qualified because of your inbred IQ, but hey — give it a shot anyway. Who knows? The black man in the White House may take pity on you. He’s probably getting tired of repeatedly kicking your ass — although even I must admit that you rednecks squeal real pretty when you get thumped.

Rejected numerous times for a SES federal appointment, and turned down for a bogus disability claim from his 2-year stint playing in the air national guard. Ended up working a career as a disgruntled non-union desk clerk for Ford Motors for 35 years.

            I’m very disappointed in you reply for the future if you wish to engage in any meaning talking points with a person of a more different Racial background . Try to have knowledge of that Racial history. I know this might be hard for you to understand but Ebonics came about as a result of those who were in slaved. As a mean’s to carry on a conversation without the “master” being aware of what was taking place in his or her own backyard. It was a way to plan an escape right under your nose and you not having any idea what was going on. Do you really believed that the slaves were talking about a Chariot coming down to take me home please. let me explain the meaning of that song to you that song was saying that a escape was planed and to get ready. The underground railroad was coming thru the person that started the song was the one that was running away. This was taking right under your nose and here you were thinking that these Ni#### were good boy and girls the next thing your dumb ass knew 10 people had gone up to Canada where if your kind came after them then they were put in jail .I’ll have finish this later but hey even you use Ebonics explain later please take notes for your evening class at K. K.K. U we like to in breed

            Ebonics is nothing more than a coloreds pigeon English and reflects on their inability to learn the common spoken tongue.
            Slaves had their own native languages when 1st brought to this country to learn skills. It was the only time in their history where they could see the use of the wheel, farming, spinning cloth etc as well as a 2 head of household family. Unfortunately after slavery they lost all of those skills and now just rely on the generosity of whites to survive

            Man I like talking to a person that so stupid that it like telling a two year old not to take a sh*** on them selves ok look dig this before their was a country that called America there was another country called can you say Egypt now see Egypt has been around since oh about 6000 years. Hell Rome maybe 2000 and Greece 3500. I tell you that too point out one little fact that your bigot mind over look there where not any white folk in that area. They were called can you say the Asiatic black man and guess what not only did they knew, about weaving clothe and wheels they even had a invention call a chariot. I bring this up to point out to you that those came as you pointed in your post they had languages and of course that was taking away from them. How do you go about destroying a people it not by raping their women nor is killing the men no dumb ass it about taking away their language that was the point in teaching the slaves English . I really got bad news for you the America’s that’s north and south were name after Columbus navigator and guess what he was BLACK . Damn your living in a country that it took a black man to find. What the hell does that say about you. I told you should stayed with something you could explain like how your daddy is your brother too. Now back to the Ebonics thing that I already told you what was up with that and in your post you point that out. Just for your F.Y.I. the black people I know have jobs house payment , dental bill, and bank account and their not on welfare again you need to check you notes. There are more white people that need some form of help from the govt . then black’s and I will say this in my country the richest . No child should go to bed wondering where their next meal is coming from.

            Taking away their language?? Their language was derived from chimps and gorillas just watch football on Sunday and their language and culture manifests itself then go to the zoo and its identical.
            Columbus’s navigator was Columbus blacks were used to cook and clean just like they do today in the US Navy
            You may have Told me what Ebonics was in your mind but that is hardly what it was. Its not a language, dialect just blacks trying to mimic pig latin,
            Sorry the welfare roles are 38% colored 37% white. So blacks in this country wouldn’t exist if it wasn’t from white handouts because you can be sure the colored aren’t going to part with 1 penny.
            If some child goes to bed worrying about where their next meal is coming from they should stop their parents fro going to the casino or buying drugs

And that bastard acts like 9-11 never happened and the Bush-Cheney team or anyone else in the administration has never been held accountable? And he has the gall to criticize Obama on Iraq. I just get so feed up with this guy and the statements he has made over the years, one in particular stands out in 2004 election were Cheney stated that if a democratic was elected the U.S was sure to be attacked. I don’t recall anyone saying excuse me MR. VICE PRESIDENT IT WAS DURING THE BUSH ADMINISTRATION THAT WE WERE ATTACKED.

I like their Critical Thinking approach that they are using in these times of Crissis. They did some critical thinking during the 2012 election, if you recall, the President was re-elected. The people did some re-capping and re-elected President Obama, so sit tight Folks, I think the President and his Admin will handle this problem just like they have since being in office. Keep up the good work and disregard all of that “Sound and Fury”, Which? sighfy’s NOTHING!. Thank You are the magic words in my book. I Love Ya All. Mr. C. E. KING P. S. Keep an eye on those Plutocracts(commissioners) they are over your States.
