Quotes of the day

posted at 8:01 pm on April 29, 2012 by Allahpundit

“The president who won the Nobel Peace Prize less than nine months after his inauguration has turned out to be one of the most militarily aggressive American leaders in decades…

“Mr. Obama’s readiness to use force — and his military record — have won him little support from the right. Despite countervailing evidence, most conservatives view the president as some kind of peacenik. From both the right and left, there has been a continuing, dramatic cognitive disconnect between Mr. Obama’s record and the public perception of his leadership: despite his demonstrated willingness to use force, neither side regards him as the warrior president he is

“[I]t is clear that he has completely shaken the ‘Vietnam syndrome’ that provided a lens through which a generation of Democratic leaders viewed military action. Still, the American public and chattering classes continue to regard the president as a thinker, not an actor; a negotiator, not a fighter.”

***

“White House counterterrorism adviser John Brennan appeared on three separate Sunday morning programs to discuss the administration’s efforts against al Qaeda a year after President Barack Obama ordered the raid that killed Osama bin Laden.

“‘We’re on the path towards al Qaeda’s destruction, and the president has committed that we’re not going to rest until al Qaeda is destroyed as an organization,” Brennan told CNN’s “State of the Union with Candy Crowley.’ ‘We’re not going to relent until they’re brought to justice one way or the other. We demonstrated the ability to do that with bin Laden.’”

***

“‘There are indicators that some elements of the Pakistani government may be protecting Zawahiri,’ says a U.S. intel official who did not want to be named discussing sensitive information. ‘We have reports that he’s been hanging out in Karachi for brief periods, and we just don’t think he’s going to be doing that without a lot of people knowing about it.’…

“If the U.S. gets Zawahiri in its sights, it won’t want to risk compromising an operation to take him out. The al Qaeda leader’s safest bet might be to hide as deep inside Pakistani territory as he can get. Riedel believes he’s probably already there. ‘I think the CIA would be looking for something that looks an awful lot like Abbottabad,’ he says. ‘A safe house in an urban area near a military base. That’s been the signature of almost all of the senior Qaeda operatives who have been killed or captured.’

“‘The problem for Zawahiri, however, is that “the CIA has demonstrated that it can break the code,’ says Riedel. ‘Bin Laden actually practiced pretty good operational security, but Zawahiri has to take it up a notch. If I were him, I would be worried. I think we’ll find him, and I don’t think it will take 10 years.’”

***

“Bergen offers this perspective: ‘Seventeen Americans have been killed by Al Qaeda or people influenced by its ideas since 9/11. More Americans die in their bathtubs by significant amounts, by accidental drowning. We don’t have a fear of accidental bathtub drowning.’…

“Ignatius, who has read some of the documents the U.S. obtained from bin Laden’s compound, said the terror group’s leader knew some aspects of his organization failed

“However, the Washington Post journalist said the ideas of al Qaeda are stronger than the organization. ‘Bin Laden’s violent dreams of jihad probably died with him, but the idea of purifying the Muslim world of Western influence, of getting what he called apostate leaders like Hosni Mubarak in Egypt out of their jobs, that’s actually happened,’ Ignatius said.”

***

“Documents found in the house where Osama bin Laden was killed a year ago show a close working relationship between top al-Qaida leaders and Mullah Omar, the overall commander of the Taliban, including frequent discussions of joint operations against Nato forces in Afghanistan, the Afghan government and targets in Pakistan…

“The news will undermine hopes of a negotiated peace in Afghanistan, where the key debate among analysts and policymakers is whether the Taliban – seen by many as following an Afghan nationalist agenda – might once again offer a safe haven to al-Qaida or like-minded militants, or whether they can be persuaded to renounce terrorism…

“‘Questions and issues come up. They don’t see eye to eye on everything but it’s clear they understand they have an interest in co-operating [on attacks against Nato, Afghan government and Pakistani targets],’ the source said. ‘Of those engaged in the conversation, two [Zawahiri and Omar] are still alive today and there is no reason to believe that either has substantially changed his views in the last year.’”

***

“‘It’s wishful thinking to say al-Qaida is on the brink of defeat,’ says Seth Jones, a Rand analyst and adviser to U.S. special operations forces. ‘They have increased global presence, the number of attacks by affiliates has risen, and in some places like Yemen, they’ve expanded control of territory.’…

“Many U.S. officials cite the Yemen model as the way ahead: a small network of U.S. intelligence and military forces working with local forces to selectively target militants.

“‘The key challenge will be balancing aggressive counterterrorism operations with the risk of exacerbating the anti-Western global agenda’ of al-Qaida and its affiliates, Cardillo says.

“In other words, adds Jones, ‘it is a war in which the side that kills the most civilians loses.’”

***

“What we’re seeing now in Egypt is something that might be called electoral bin Ladenism. Take the group Gamaa Islamiya, which under its spiritual leader, Sheikh Omar Abdel Rahman, made the first unsuccessful attempt to destroy the World Trade Center in 1993. Today, the organization has formed a Salafist political party with the benign name Building and Development Party. This organization, which like al-Qaeda traces its roots to the Islamist theorist Sayyid Qutb, has 13 seats in the new Egyptian parliament…

“So, a year on, it’s a time to think about bin Laden’s failures but also about the ways his fellow Islamists have morphed toward a political movement more successful than even bin Laden could have dreamed.”

***

“Gibbs was asked by host David Gregory if the president believed that Romney would not have authorized the bin Laden mission had he access to the same intelligence.

“‘I don’t think it’s clear that he would,’ said Gibbs of Romney. ‘Again, he criticized Barack Obama a few years ago, when Barack Obama said if we had actionable intelligence about a high value target and let’s be clear: Nobody was bigger, nobody was a more high value target than Osama bin Laden.’”

***

“Gillespie, a former Republican National Committee chairman, responded: ‘This is one of the reasons President Obama has become one of the most divisive presidents in American history. He took something that was a unifying event for all Americans – an event that Gov. Romney congratulated him and the military and the intelligence analysts in our government for completing the mission in terms of killing Osama bin Laden – and he’s managed to turn it into a divisive partisan political attack.’”

Don’t be silly. He didn’t write the newsletters. Or sign them. Floating Rock explained this to me the other day. It went something like this:

FR: RON PAUL!
RINOINO: Isn’t that guy a racist?
FR: Of course not. Dr. Paul stands for freedom and is therefore physically incapable of being a racist.
RINOINO: OK, but what about those newsletters?
FR: Lies, spread by his opponents to smear him
RINOINO: But here’s a direct quote.
FR: I Don’t believe you.
RINOINO: Here’s an actual link to a picture of the article.
FR: He didn’t write it.
RINOINO: It’s his Newsletter!
FR: He didn’t sign it.
RINOINO: Who’s signature is that at the bottom of the page?
FR: It’s a fake. I don’t trust your source.
RINOINO: It was in the news for weeks!! Ron Paul himself was on TV and he never denied the articles were put out in his name! What proof will you accept? Is there anything you would not dismiss as a conspiracy?
FR: RON PAUL!!

Rmoney might not be the candidate that I would have prefered, but at least I’m not smoking dope, drinking bong water, hoping that some how reality might be changed… but then again we all have real jobs, pay mortgages and have to deliver for our families. So, unlike you, who might sell yourself to science so that you can buy the ganja and hope that nobody asks you to defend your country, you might want to go to bed, or call the the suicide prevention hotline… cause here is another tune that relates to you.

You’re right, I’m done holding my nose also, but holy christ you stink shyte on ice… please get out of your mom’s basement. Your dude has as much chance as a third party candidate, as pee wee Herman has not getting busted in a adult theater.

You are a prime example of a Fox News, Talk Radio drone. You think all Paul supporters are jobless dope smoking drug addicts. Just fyi, I do not support drug use, I do not live in my mommy’s basement, I do pay a mortgage, I do have a job and I do have a family that I support. I also served in the military, like most Ron Paul supporters.

Yeah, so voting to Paul is going to make the universe come to order and the sees will stop rising and life with the unicorns and skittles will be just awesome! Dude, your guy has as much support as a an STD is likeable… What the hell! just deal with what you can, and make an influence were you can. If you think that Paul has a chance at the presidency, you have been smoking dope, contrary to what you profess. Just drink the water, it might taste bad to begin with, but you’ll get use to it.

“Bergen offers this perspective: ‘Seventeen Americans have been killed by Al Qaeda or people influenced by its ideas since 9/11. More Americans die in their bathtubs by significant amounts, by accidental drowning. We don’t have a fear of accidental bathtub drowning.’…”

F this. Good night.

America is destroying itself from within, terrorists are the least of our problems. 9/11 was just what the police-state needed to drive a wedge of fear between the American people and their freedom, and now they submit to the police-state willingly, even pleadingly. In fact some people openly mock and smear anybody who dares to suggest that perhaps freedom, liberty and the American way was better. By destroying that, haven’t the terrorists won? Sure, the terrorists could never destroy what once made America so great, but we have destroyed it ourselves.

If terrorism is really such a huge threat, so much so that we have to sacrifice our Constitutional rights, then why does the government leave our borders relatively open and undefended? Obviously if terrorism was really such a huge threat then protecting our border would be one of the the first and most obvious measures to take, and is certainly preferable to destroying the Constitution, yet while the ruling class continues to push for an ever more powerful police-state, using terrorism as the pretext, they also want open borders and plenty of magnets to draw illegals here. Why? Probably because they know they’re just using terrorism as an excuse to steal our rights to increase their own power over us.

The terrorists are winning, for example both Obama and Romney support the NDAA bill that allows a president to lock away America citizens indefinitely, with no Constitutional or legal protections such as a lawyer or trial. A clear and flagrant violation of the Constitution, yet both parties overwhelmingly voted for it in Congress, with only a few dissenters, and Obama signed it on New Years Eve when all eyes were elsewhere.

All Osama had to do to defeat us was to give people a reason to fear so that the fascists among us could take over and destroy us from within.

Yes, they are different sides of the same coin, but at least one of them we can influence with a dominant congress… If you want to vote for Paul, as a third party candidate, which he said he won’t do, then you are part of the problem, not the solution… and any future suffering we have is on your head!

I didn’t imply that you weren’t nice, you are now making up false injustices. I did comment that you could only retort with the fact that QOTD wasn’t like the “Good ol days” and that you would ban people like ALT and those that didn’t discuss what you wanted to, or those that posted music links. Paul is done, get over it. Even if you were to convince everyone here at HA that they should vote for Paul, what would it achieve? it isn’t enough. When your guy let you down, cause he would, as he is a politician, then what? are you going to curl up into the fetal position and cry? Where was your guy all of this year? go look at his voting record, then get back to me and tell me he isn’t just trying to set up infrastructure for Rand… Please like your politician is any more noble than any other person’s politician. You people are sad.

Thanks. I didn’t mean to imply there are gulags or anything, yet, but that the police-state is using fear to accelerate itself, and at the present we have the TSA security theater, the NDAA, CISPA and so many other things that are all starting to add up to way too much.

It’s really a shame to see how clueless you are. One day you too will wake from your stupor. And please don’t confuse me with “Occupy” because I am not that. They are a far left progressive movement. What you must understand is that the banks run this country, not the president. Then you will be headed in the right direction.
