Aspirin Factory Alert! Obama Tries to Catch Up

Many people are seething that Mitt Romney didn’t drive the wooden stake into Dracobama’s heart on Tuesday, when he handed Libya up on a silver platter.

Still others say it was just a prevue of coming attractions, laying a trap for what to expect at Monday night’s debate on foreign policy.

For several reasons, I think it didn’t matter, inasmuch as even had Mitt said nothing, 95% of all the viewers who watched that short dust up in front of the fair Candy Crowley, knew that the “I said it was terrorism the day after the bombing” that regrettably flew out of Barack Obama’s mouth was a lie.

Anyone who followed the news story of Chris Stevens’ assassination has known that for several days (time line not required) that Obama, Hillary, the crawfish Jay Carney, and UN Ambassador Sudan Rice had been pushing a story entirely opposite to that of “a terror attack.”

And even people who hadn’t been following the Libya story, still knew Obama was probably lying, for that’s all he had done the entire evening. The Libya contretemps was late in the debate, and Obama had already laid out his first bodacious lie in the first ten minutes, when he denied having cut US oil production, then went on to infer that $5/gallon gas was a sign of an economy on the rebound, while $1.85/gal gas was a sign of an economy in decline.

Ten minutes into the debate, Mitt Romney owned the Truth-o-Meter, so thereafter, even when Obama said the sky was dark, people still looked outside just to confirm.

Still, everyone is excited about the coming debate on Monday night, in part because everyone knows there will be new revelations about the Benghazi “affair” before then. Everyone expects at least one more shoe to drop. It’s very doubtful that the gang that can’t shoot straight will be able to cover up all its loose ends in making all those stories fit comfortably inside the “we called it terrorism before we denied it was terrorism” narrative.”

And that could be of some worry.

You may not recall the same clamor for “justice” in 1998 after Osama bin Laden had blown up two, not one, but two, US embassies in Kenya and Tanzania. Bill Clinton cavalierly bombed a pharmaceutical (aspirin) factory in Sudan in retaliation, insisting the factory produced chemical weapons. Later, 1999-2000, the factory owner sued for restitution…and won.

One man, one innocent man who was just as much a political expedient and statistic to Clinton as the three “bodyguards” around Chris Stevens were to Obama, was killed in the bombing.

If Libya has a Ali-bin-Daniel Webster, he needs to let every mother in the country know to pray under her breath, and every business man to watch his wallet and the skies, for Obama is on the loose, looking for some red-meat retribution and vengeance, not to mention justice, for the harm that country’s bad guys brought on his America’s reputation.

Resurrecting “Bring me Pedicaris alive, or Raisuli dead” (T Roosevelt, 1904) is too late by three weeks at least. That window closed while Obama & Co were still trying to frame the hapless Nazouli in California. But it doesn’t mean Obama won’t try to appear manly, a la Clinton, for it does seem Obama needs to be able parade into Monday night’s debate with somebody’s scalp hanging from his belt.

In my view it will be the already scalpless James Clapper, head of the National Intelligence Agency….as a sure sign of at least some level of innocence.

    • He has already promised to veto any extension of the Bush era tax rates, unleashing an economic bombshell on the US at the beginning of 2013. It just goes to show you, the Republicans never should have agreed to allow the tax rates to expire during a lame duck session. They allowed the Democrats to play politics with the timing. If any politics had to be played it should have been to put the expiration into the middle of 2012.

  1. What would the Obama Administration do with an upstart Navy Captain like Captain Ingraham?

    “… In the meantime, men who yearned to breathe free were making their
    way to our shores. Among them was a young refugee from the
    Austro-Hungarian Empire. He had been a leader in an attempt to free
    Hungary from Austrian rule. The attempt had failed and he fled to escape
    execution. In America, this young Hungarian, Koscha by name, became an
    importer by trade and took out his first citizenship papers. One day,
    business took him to a Mediterranean port. There was a large Austrian
    warship under the command of an admiral in the harbor. He had a
    manservant with him. He had described to this manservant what the flag
    of his new country looked like. Word was passed to the Austrian warship
    that this revolutionary was there and in the night he was kidnapped and
    taken aboard that large ship. This man’s servant, desperate, walking up
    and down the harbor, suddenly spied a flag that resembled the
    description he had heard. It was a small American war sloop. He went
    aboard and told Captain Ingraham, of that war sloop, his story. Captain
    Ingraham went to the American Consul. When the American Consul learned
    that Koscha had only taken out his first citizenship papers, the consul
    washed his hands of the incident. Captain Ingraham said, “I am the
    senior officer in this port and I believe, under my oath of my office,
    that I owe this man the protection of our flag.”

    He went aboard the Austrian warship and demanded to see their
    prisoner, our citizen. The Admiral was amused, but they brought the man
    on deck. He was in chains and had been badly beaten. Captain Ingraham
    said, “I can hear him better without those chains,” and the chains were
    removed. He walked over and said to Koscha, “I will ask you one
    question; consider your answer carefully. Do you ask the protection of
    the American flag?” Koscha nodded dumbly, “Yes,” and the Captain said,
    “You shall have it.” He went back and told the frightened consul what he
    had done. Later in the day three more Austrian ships sailed into
    harbor. It looked as though the four were getting ready to leave.
    Captain Ingraham sent a junior officer over to the Austrian flag ship to
    tell the Admiral that any attempt to leave that harbor with our citizen
    aboard would be resisted with appropriate force. He said that he would
    expect a satisfactory answer by four o’clock that afternoon. As the hour
    neared they looked at each other through the glasses. As it struck four
    he had them roll the cannons into the ports and had them light the
    tapers with which they would set off the cannons — one little sloop.
    Suddenly the lookout tower called out and said, “They are lowering a
    boat,” and they rowed Koscha over to the little American ship.

    Captain Ingraham then went below and wrote his letter of resignation
    to the United States Navy. In it he said, “I did what I thought my oath
    of office required, but if I have embarrassed my country in any way, I
    resign.” His resignation was refused in the United States Senate with
    these words: “This battle that was never fought may turn out to be the
    most important battle in our Nation’s history.” Incidentally, there is
    to this day, and I hope there always will be, a USS Ingraham in the
    United States Navy.

    I did not tell that story out of any desire to be narrowly
    chauvinistic or to glorify aggressive militarism, but it is an example
    of government meeting its highest responsibility.”
