The past week has been a showcase of the most incompetent administration we have seen since Jimmy Carter. Day after day we have watched as this administration bumbled its way throughout the Egypt crisis. They have absolutely no idea what they are doing and this alone should scare the bejesus out of you.
Talking points galore, all wrong. From Mubarak must go, to Mubarak must stay…for awhile, to Mubarak is leaving today, to “I don’t know what the flying f*** is going on but we hope the protesters are safe”
Well, that last one isn’t a quote but you get my drift.
Hell, even Obama’s Director of National Intelligence has no clue about the world he lives in. He had the utter gall to suggest the Muslim Brotherhood is a “largely secular” group.
“Allah is our objective; the Quran is our constitution, the Prophet is our leader; Jihad is our way; and death for the sake of Allah is the highest of our aspirations.”
And here is Obama’s Press Secretary pretty much saying they don’t care if the Muslim Brotherhood comes into power. Yes, yes…we know it’s up to the Egyptian people but we are not going to act in our best interest? What the hell is our President supposed to do then if its not to protect this country and our interests?
I guess we can say they are consistent. How long has Obama, and his fellow leftists, been saying that the United States should stop being the world policeman? That we are just one country and no better than anyone else, nothing exceptional to see over here. Why should we act to protect ourselves and our interests? It’s the old arrogant American way that is at fault here you see.
What could go wrong with this line of thinking?
● President Carter’s U.N. ambassador, Andrew Young, called Khomeini “some kind of saint.”
● William Sullivan, the U.S. ambassador in Tehran, compared Khomeini to Gandhi.
● A State Department spokesman worried about the possibility of a military coup, saying that would be “most dangerous for U.S. interests. It would blow away the moderates and invite the majority to unite behind a radical faction.”
● On Feb. 12, 1979, Time magazine reported
. . . a sense of controlled optimism in Iran. . . . Iranians will surely insist that the revolution live up to its democratic aims. . . . Those who know [Khomeini] expect that eventually he will settle in the Shi’ite holy city of Qum and resume a life of teaching and prayer. It seems improbable that he would try to become a kind of Archbishop Makarios of Iran, directly holding the reins of power. Khomeini believes that Iran should become a parliamentary democracy, with several political parties.
● A New York Times editorial reassured readers that “moderate, progressive individuals” were advising Khomeini. The Times predicted the Ayatollah would provide “a desperately needed model of humane governance for a third-world country.”
Oh, I forgot to mention…Mubarak isn’t leaving. Instead he gave Obama the finger:
Will we all sit here and obey the Obama regime? Will we not once again, with honor stand up to our enemies? Will we not continue to stand for Egypt with honor?
Brothers, would you have me crawl away at the command of Obama? Would any of you crawl away like a dog that has been kicked? Would any of you bow down to the fools he has chosen to take our nation from us?
