Al Qaeda Is On The Path To Defeat?

Osama bin Laden Is Dead And Al Qaeda Is Alive

Bragging Just May Have Gotten An Ambassador Killed In Libya

As Benghazi-Gate begins to widen more and more along comes Obama out in Denver with his hand picked audience to clue us into the demise of Al Qaeda. Of course at one time this administration told us that the "War on Terrorism" was over and had been won. That is hardly the case as recent world events have shown. Everyone seems to have gotten the message from Al Qaeda and other associated terrorist cells but Oblabber Mouth.

Another irony of his statement is it occurred on the very day that our troop death toll in Afghanistan hit the 2K mark. Remember lefties Afghanistan is "Obama's war" to win or lose. Peace, love, dove and all that other horse manure the left likes to folly along with. But I'm sure you'll also find a way to blame that on Bush too.

Al Qaeda is hardly gone nor does it appear to be too worried about Obama. For every terrorist one kills there are two more that seem to pop up. Now Obama doesn't like to use the word terrorist because according to him they don't exist. But guess what? They do exist and still walk among us. I'm not sure how many Pinocchio's to give Obama for his latest lie. Yes, bin Laden is dead thanks to our Seal Team 6 but Al Qaeda isn't on the path to defeat just because Obama said that it's so. His sheeple will swallow it but world events say otherwise.

Notice how his hand fed sheeple clapped and started a USA chant. Turns out that going hand in hand with that statement he has informed Congress that he is going to give his buds, The Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, $450 million of taxpayer money to try to bribe them and make them feel all warm and fuzzy. Hasn't anyone informed Obama that they will surely take our money as they plot to kill us? Aren't these the same people who torched our embassy, burned our flags and raised Al Qaeda flags over US property? What the hell am I missing in this picture or am I seeing this clearly? Isn't it odd that Obama didn't tell his drooling adorers about that part of his plan?

Funny that Obama said those exact same words a month ago during the Democratic National Convention to his delegates and then on the eleventh anniversary of 9-11 Al Qaeda gave him a demonstration of how defeated they are and there is speculation that they disapproved of Obama bragging about the death of their leader. No doubt they weren't happy about his bravado and swaggering around like he pulled the trigger. Wasn't there something about "if you repeat a lie often enough people will begin to believe it?" That's a hallmark of Team Obama.

For a couple of weeks now The Wizard of Foreign Affairs named Obama has denied the obvious. He is still denying it as of this past weekend. Are the wheels coming off the camel cart or what Obie? Here he was with his swaggering self on the world stage giving speeches about how he was going to "reset" Middle East affairs and assuage the terrorists of the world by denying they exist. They are just misunderstood, blood thirsty haters. It is now apparent that as with most things Obama-like it was all a bunch of bunk.

He bowed to foreign potentates and offered words of appeasement because only he could heal the wounds cause by Islamic fundamentalists over the course of history. It failed Obama. You failed again in this area too Mr. President. How Jimmie Carteresque of you Barack.

Of Course It Was Hillary...

So yesterday morning what should hit the news but the top general in Afghanistan helping to correct his Commander-In-Chief. Thass right. Marine Corp General John Allen just announced that "Al Qaeda has come back." No kidding General Allen as if we didn't know that. Then he went on to add, “But they're not here in large numbers. But al-Qaeda doesn't have to be anywhere in large numbers.” This is pure genius. How many of them did it take to pull off all the damage inflicted on 9-11?

But wait a minute General Sir. Your Commander-In-Chief just yesterday out in Nevada bragged to his slobbering sheeple that “while a new tower rises above the New York skyline, al Qaeda is on the path to defeat, and Osama bin Laden is dead.” Two outta three ain't bad but it's the lie sandwiched in the middle that is troublesome. The problem with terrorists is that they can grow like weeds.

Then lo and behold President Karzai of Afghanistan followed up on both of them with this, "Terrorism has not gone away. It has increased." He then started a short list of fighters who have been entering his nation, "Name them al Qaeda, name them Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan, name them Haqqani, name them Taliban, whatever. They're still there. And they have the ability to continue 10 years on to come and hurt us and kill your troops and kill our troops, kill our civilians. We must then question how come they've returned?"

And Obama wants you to believe that Al Qaeda is on the ropes? Really?

So which are you going to believe? Obama's lying lips or what we are seeing happening in the world and the intelligence that is now starting to hit the news that Team Obama has tried to keep under wraps and cover up for weeks now?

I know for the sheeple of this country Obama wouldn't dare to lie to them. They kneel, light candles and worship at the altar of "The One." He didn't in 2008 now did he? Not even a little bit? There are indeed still too many among us who won't admit to having made a big mistake. His name is Barack Hussein Obama.

Proposed Obama Bumper Sticker Slogans:

"Osama bin Laden Is Dead And Al Qaeda Is Alive" or maybe "Al Qaeda Is Alive And General Motors Is Half-Dead."

"Like" It, "Tweet" It, "Pin " It, "Share It" With Your Followers. Time to keep the momentum going.

As Always,

The Frog

FP - Well said as usual. I have had the honor of knowing several real hero's in my lifetime. I have never heard a single one of them brag about what earned them the medals that put them in that group we identify as hero's. They did what they needed to do at the time without regard for their own lives, saving many other lives in the process.

I found Obama's bragging about taking out Bin Laden disgusting. It certainly needed doing, but the bragging was not necessary. Many of his sheeple honestly think he strapped on his favorite six shooter and personally led the Seal Team into action resulting in the elimination of Bin Laden. One person actually told me Obummer risked his own life to take out Bin Laden. Even after I explained to him that his hero was in Washington surrounded by Secret Service agents, he still worships this lying failure of a man and a President.

I wonder if things would be different in the Middle East if the mission to take out Bin Laden had been accomplished but never announced to the world? To use something like this for Political advantage is beyond disgusting. This guy is far from a hero compared to the real hero's I have known. The big difference is they were actually there and did the heroic acts personally, and they never brag about what they did. My oldest son served 24 years as an Army Ranger and is far more of a hero than this empty suit living in the White House could ever hope to be.

BPOP - Now wait a minute here. This is all a farcical movie trailer that most people, including Islamic fundamentalists, have not even seen. It was just a coincidence that it all began on the 11th anniversary of 9-11. Now we see this administration in constant denial as the truth unfolds. A failed foreign policy of appeasement is just that. You cannot appease terrorists by changing what you call them or say the War on Terrorism is over and that the USA won. It is far from over.

Obama lives in a world of his own creation in his own mind. It bears no relationship to the truth or our reality. A vote for Obama is a vote for the destruction of our nation.

There is no doubt BPOP that Obama is a legend in his own mind. All one has to do is listen to him. There is not a bit of humbleness or humility in the man.

Here we have another "learned behavior" from Obama's childhood....if you don't like it don't acknowledge that it exist....comes easy for one who has already stated that as a politician he has no requirement to tell the truth. How's that for representing the American people who he'll lie to faster than anyone else in the world. Remember, "I'll have more flexibility after the election, Vladamir." Flexibility for what....to sell the American people further down the river on the path to a communist state? Oh, no doubt, Mr. Putin and company, would be more than glad to assist in any way they can. Like it or not, our White House is occupied by a pretender who has much more on his mind than protecting the birthright of this nation. Just keep hanging with him and eventually his true face will show....we just cannot afford the trip. ~WB

Obama does not have to worry about work after the presidency...Soros has plenty of dirty work to be done around the world and Obama takes to it like a pig to slop. ~WB

I agree with everything said Frog but in the final analysis is Obama really the problem or just another one of the symptoms? This quote came from the Czech Republic. Someone over there has it figured out. We have a lot of work to do.

“The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president.”

“The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America . Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince.

The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their president.”

I guess we'll find out after the next election.

Obama's bragging is reminiscent of the chest thumping GWB did at GZ just after the Twin Towers came down. He promised to "capture or kill" all terrorists. While the 30 day reprisal against Afghanistan was a success (fast, low loss of American or innocent Afghan life), the expecttations were too high, and Kerry started soaring in the 1983 pre-election polls. Bush needed a major military victory to get his poll numbers up. Enter the CIA with fake evidence of Iraqi nucear research (the Israeli's took out the Iraqi's sole nuclear research facility before 1983 in an airstrike). Bush attacks, expects the 80% Shiite population to be so grateful they will photocopy the US Constitution, and all will be well in modern Babylon. One problem - the Shiites were ANGRY; they wanted revenge, not Constutitional Democracy. Now that the US troops have exited Iraq, Iraq has become an Iranian ally, and no doubt Iraq will become a hotbed of Shiite radicalism and Shariah law.

Now in the case of Iraq, forgetting for a moment our less than stellar reason for attacking, I can admit that the mistake about post Baath Party Shiite sentiment may not have been subject to easy prediction (it's not like you could do interviews; a single word against Saddam could get you killed). But once the reaction became evident, it became a warning, something of a model to follow - don't take down a secular strongman unless you're sure the people who will replace him aren't worse. Clearly, Obama failed to heed this lesson in Libya and Egypt. Just like Iraq, secular dictator gone, radical Iranian ally born.

On another point, how we can continue funding our enemies is beyond comprehension. The Afghan fighters who ultimately drove the Russians out of their nation received ten years of US assistance. These "Mujadeen" splintered off into the Taliban, Al Quada, and other Wahhabbi terror groups, intent on causing large scale terror until the US agrees to exit nations with any sites they consider holy, such as Saudi Arabia, without any regard for what the rulership of these nations want or decide. The Wahhabbi's in fact want to topple the largely secular Sunni monarchs in the Gulf region, just like Shiite Muslims want to bring down secular military strongmen in North and NorthWest Africa. It all boils down to one thing - Shariah, political fascism hiding behind the veil of religion. After a decade of funding the Sunni fighters, and receiving the "payback" for our largesse with 9/11, what makes the Teflon Dem from Hawaii (or wherever he actually comes from) think our experiences with Shiite revolutionaries is going to be any different? With Obama, the pattern will always be to give radical Muslims large annual cash infusions to try to buy admiration and thankfulness; they will use the money to buy arms and use some of them against us and our allies (assuming we have any left; we've lost many by caving to Shiite demands which naturally emboldened tham to step up pressure on former allies in the Middle East and Europe).

But not to worry. Obama's ingenious "commissions" assigned to military funding are planning roughly 20% cuts in each of the four major military branches, and draconian reductions in plutonium based ICBMS's, all with no similar promises from Russia or China. You see, because Congress can't agree on a budget, sequestration means force reductions, yet more delayed repairs and replacements for outdated hardware, and even a change in mission. Obama doesn't get a warm-and-fazzy feeling from a "tough military;" he wants a "nice" military. Forget about reprisals - the military instead should become a "team of sociologists" and resolve the "real roots of terror" at their source - diplomacy to calm down hatreds, emergency aid to poor nations, and never to be left out, fix the global warming problem! While diplomacy is important, we have a State Department for that. And emergency aid to starving nations is a good deed when we have assurances it won't be diverted to military uses, especially those that harm on our own interests. As far as global warning is concerned, I have yet to hear any Grand Mullah mention the topic, so fixing something that probably isn't there isn't going to lead to world peace. Essentially, Obama wants to reduce the military to sort of a federal Peace Corps with spiffy uniforms and cool badges. If he succeeds, our weakness will NOT be unnoticed by our major enemies; it will be exploited to the fullest. Obama just can't see that a strong US defense does not constitute war-mongering; far from it, it DISCOURAGES war-mongering by the world's dictators.

God forbid Obama gets re-elected, but if he does he will think he had a picnic following "W" Bush. The mess he has made of all things, foreign and domestic, will buy him a one-way ticket to insanity. I predict a sizeable Romney victory. Voters don't want to be harassed or branded as racists for speaking out against him. The secret ballot is a wonderful equalizer.

I have a question a little off topic so you can delete this and I'll save it for another hub if I'm taking comments off track but why do we have to sacrifice our men and women to the likes of Al Queda? Why do we need boots on the ground with today's technology and intelligence capabilities? Why can't we use our technology and advanced weapons on rogue governments (like we do in many instances) to simply take them out and if they are replaced with a another we can't accept, take them out and keep taking them out until the people of the country come up with the right leadership. So what if we are droning inhumane dictators and assassinating murderers for the rest of the century - is it worth sending our citizens to be maimed and killed, then pull out to lose the war we sacrificed them to win? Eventually if the terrorists realize they will always be looking over their shoulder for the next drone to hit and can never accomplish ruling the country while not being able to attack our forces on the ground they will be forced to give up or we'll just keep taking them out til they are all gone. Even if it takes a couple generations it is better than sending our troops in to be maimed and killed by psychopaths.

The Frog Prince 4 years ago from Arlington, TX Author

tsadjatko - You're asking an infantry boots-on-the-ground why we are needed on the ground? Drones and technology can't hold ground. That's the simplified answer. There are also inaccessible places that only humans can go. I would select a country and turn it into glass and send a message. Obama thinks he can nice-nice them because he grew up as a Muslim. That's ludicrous.

The Frog


Stu 4 years ago

Frog - I know what you're saying. The real answer is it's a mixed bag. The taxpayer spent a fortune on R&D to automate military command and control, tactical capabilities, and communications, for which the financial return should be a smaller military. I.e., the right answer is something in between Clinton's overuse of the Peace Dividend and the Powell Doctrine. Clinton basically hollowed out the military, and Obama is trying to do it too. The answer to this question, like most, is moderation. Brainless across-the-board cuts mandated by sequestration are not the answer. We do drastically need cuts in federal spending, and military expenses that constitute waste, fraud, and specifically identified overstaffing should be eliminated. But needed spending on troop strength, and desparately needed replacements for aged hardware, must be a priority. Panetta is very credible here not only because he is so close to the issue, but he has a political background not unlike Obama's, so he's clearly not playing to any right-wing "hawk-tune." The reality is that our troops are too stretched out, and too dependent on old, failure prone aircraft, ships, etc. While budget issues may auger against an ideal upgrade package, we should at least make our forces less hollow and replace the oldest of our aging hardware.

Tsadjatko - Technology, primary air power, at best softens up an enemy. This must be followed up with armor and artillary to box the enemy into corners, where they can finally be taken out by infantry. No war was ever won by air strikes alone. Regarding rogue governments, the whole process has simply replaced secular strongmen with Islamic regimes loyal to Iran. Iraq, Egypt, and Libya are good examples. It's a choice between the lesser of two evils, and in general the secular strongmen are less dangerous to their own people and other nations than Islamic theocracies. Further, unless a secular strongman is committing genocide, there is no moral justification for attacking in the first place. It's true the secular strongmen are always repressive and corrupt, but that's an internal matter unless they are killing thousands of people who are not trying to take the government down by force. One could certainly make an argument that Saddam was genocidal, having murdered about 800,000 of his countrymen without any cause other than exercise of anti-Saddam speech or the fact that the victims were Shiites, who Saddam viewed as a security threat (actually, Saddam murdered about twice as many Sunnis for anti-government speech than Shiites who were killed in the famous gas attacks that wiped out entire villages). But certainly Muburak, while stern, was not a genocidal killer. Gaddafi was a monster, and did kill people, but not on a genocidal scale.

You go Sir Frog! I can't believe the audacity of that dictator giving more of our money to the same people that are responsible for the slaughter of our own in the streets. They drug their bodies around while dancing and celebrating, commemorating the event in pictures! I do not understand how any true American can stand for it.

More concerning is the large number, 123 to be exact if memory serves, that came over, what was it, last week with their leader that our dictator saw over our Israeli friend. I heard too that only 23 had a visa. So now, we basically have a situation of possibly 100 still in the big Apple. Funny, nuns and babies are molested by our airports now but these guys get waived on over without even papers by our very own dear leader. Go figure. ROCK THE VOTE REPUBLICAN.

The 'once a Marine, always a Marine' I am married to understands war so much better than I do. My favorite quote though is from MacArthur: 'If you do not win, you loose.' (That's pretty close.) Obama will have to answer one day for being a horrendous Commander In Chief. However, when Bush left us (and the world) all glued to our televisions, waiting for "Shock And Awe", and it did not happen, I see that as a pivotal point in our spiral down. Shame on Congress and 2 Presidents for not allowing our military to do what it does better than anyone else on the planet. America needs a leader like never before . . . and I am praying for miracles.

Good article, thoughtful comments, and I keep reminding myself that the phrase that appears most often in the scriptures, is FEAR NOT. It is past time to bring our troops home. They are being murdered daily as some kind of sick sacrifice to the enemy by those who are supposed to represent us, and have the sovereignty of our Republic as their highest ideal of what is good in this world.

"You're asking an infantry boots-on-the-ground why we are needed on the ground?" Frog, that really isn't my question

What I'm saying is why do we need to hold ground when that requires the sacrifice of our troops for an unworthy, unappreciative ally like Iraq or Afghanistan. Boots on the ground will never work there or in places like these countries because we are forced to pull out before the job is done, be it for political, economic or other reasons. Take Syria for example - if we used our power to decimate their ability to wage war on their citizens and targeted Assad wherever he runs to his reign would end - if another "Assad" took over we could do the same until the country actually puts in a government that respects human rights. Sure there would be collateral damage but at least it won't be thousands of our brave men and women throwing their lives away to protect people who would turn on us at the drop of a hat. I think our strategy against terrorism should really be you are either against us or for us and draw the line - it's senseless to ask our teenagers, and that's what many of them are, to put their life and limb on the line for such undeserving "allies". I believe we can do better combating evil than feeding it our good men and women. What would you say has been more successful, occupying two countries that we are now starting to lose or the hundreds of drone strikes that have been credited with taking out Al Qaeda? I'll tell you this, the latter hasn't resulted in 5000 dead and 50,000 maimed of our bravest. Somebody is not counting the cost if you ask me and the Commander-in-Chief needs to start thinking outside the box.If he really cares for our troops then lets find a better way.
