As we approach the twelfth anniversary of the attacks by Muslim Brotherhood-inspired jihadists on the World Trade Center and Pentagon, our leaders have either forgotten or have switched sides. Today, far too many of our elected officials want to side with… Muslim Brotherhood-inspired jihadists in Syria despite the fact that only 9 percent of the American people want to do the same.
Before you say these leaders have forgotten after less than twelve years, any of them who support the Syrian rebels have actually forgotten after less than one year. Anyone in Congress who won’t concede that Ansar Al-Sharia was behind the Benghazi attacks is signing on to a lie so politically radioactive that he or she wouldn’t dare utter it. If there are any such individuals, they’re probably being interviewed by the 9/11 Truther crowd right now for their insight.
So, if Ansar Al-Sharia was behind the Benghazi attacks, how can any politician justify siding with Ansar Al-Sharia in Syria by launching cruise missiles at the Assad regime? Exaggeration, you say?
Via Bill Gertz at the Washington Free Beacon:
U.S. intelligence agencies earlier this month uncovered new evidence that al Qaeda-linked terrorists in Benghazi are training foreign jihadists to fight with Syria’s Islamist rebels, according to U.S. officials.
Ansar al-Sharia, the al Qaeda-affiliated militia that U.S. officials say orchestrated the Sept. 11 attacks on the U.S. diplomatic compound and a CIA facility in Benghazi, is running several training camps for jihadists in Benghazi and nearby Darnah, another port city further east, said officials who discussed some details of the camps on condition of anonymity.
The officials said the terror training camps have been in operation since at least May and are part of a network that funnels foreign fighters to Syrian rebel groups, including the Al-Nusra Front, the most organized of the Islamist rebel groups fighting the Bashar al-Assad regime in Damascus.
As we reported last month, via Arabi-Press, Al-Nusra is supported by Ansar Al-Sharia. Even then State Department spokesman Victoria Nuland, who played some role in the scrubbing of Ansar Al-Sharia from Susan Rice’s talking points last year, conceded that al-Nusra is a terrorist group.
By attacking Assad, the Obama administration would be attacking the regime that is fighting the group that murdered four Americans in Benghazi last year.
Those of us who know the truth aren’t just angry with our elected officials – both Democrat and Republican – for being so incredibly misguided. We’re also angry that they continue to buy into lies while ignoring truths that are on par with 2 + 2 = 4. Senators John McCain (RINO-AZ) and Lindsey Graham (RINO-SC) are the poster children for this insanity.
In fact, Graham’s schizophrenia was on full display shortly after he co-authored a letter with Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) to FBI Director James Comey. In that letter, a total of eight members of Congress demanded answers in the Benghazi attacks. Graham then went to Egypt and demanded the release of Muslim Brotherhood leaders who very likely had a role in those attacks.
Now, he’s an advocate for launching attacks on a foreign government that is fighting the group that hit us on 9/11/12. Evidence suggests that short of staying out of Syria altogether, any proactive position should involve supporting Assad’s efforts in this fight, not those responsible for murdering Americans last year and in 2001. Our leaders are even going so far as to ignore the truth about chemical weapons usage in order to aid the killers (Ansar Al-Sharia) of Christopher Stevens, Sean Smith, Glen Doherty, and Tyrone Woods.
There is a saying attributed to 1960’s California politician Jesse Unruh that says:
“Money is the mother’s milk of politics.”
After 9/11/01, New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani rightly rejected a $10 million check from Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal in defiance of this rule. Twelve years later, that decision has aged like a fine wine because it was a righteous decision in the face of temptation. In fact, he may not have known how right he was. It’s unfortunate that George W. Bush didn’t follow Giuliani’s lead.
Though not a politician, Newscorp. media mogul Rupert Murdoch represents the exact opposite of Giuliani in this regard and really likes milk. In partnering with Talal, Murdoch has enriched himself at the expense of censoring the truth about Saudi Arabia throughout his media entities:
Shortly after the 9/11/01 attacks, Bush’s approval rating was at 91%, the exact inverse of support for attacking Syria today. Back then, Americans wanted to hit the enemy hard and they gave the president the authority to do so. Bush didn’t correctly identify it and ultimately left office with an approval rating below 30 percent.
McCain hasn’t learned from Giuliani either. He’s doing the bidding of Syrian rebel lobbyist named Mouaz Moustafa who works one block away from the White House.
The truth is that Washington, D.C. is awash in Saudi / Muslim Brotherhood money and dont’ think it’s not doing the work of those who wield it. The U.S. is approaching $17 Trillion in debt and politicians are desperate for the political equivalent of a fix; they’ll do anything for that fix, including selling out their country.
If it’s cowardice that’s causing these politicians to act this way, it puts them on par with deserters in war. If money’s doing it, that’s treason.
Saying they’ve forgotten would be giving them too much credit.
