Patriot Dispatches

Dems’ Charge of the OBL-Obsessed Light Brigade and Obama’s Libyan Video Lies

It started soon after Tora Bora and just before the dawn of the BushLied Era, i.e. when Iraq was not transformed into Connecticut within 72 hours after Shock and Awe.

Majorities of Democrats voted for the good war in Afghanistan in 2001 and that other war in Iraq in 2003. But before President George W. Bush was re-elected in 2004 we discovered that their hearts just weren’t in them. Rather, they pined for a simpler world in which threats don’t exist until after America is attacked and grand jury indictments pass for getting tough. After all, we found no stockpiles of WMD and if only we could get Osama bin Laden, America could return to the waving of Florida’s bloody shirt and Gore’s shadow presidency.

Never mind that Democrats did all they could to embolden al Qaeda to wait us out with publicly-announced troop withdrawal deadlines. Never mind that they did all they could to prevent the gathering of the intel that could lead to capturing the object of their Light Brigade. Never mind the continuing active and trained terrorist presence on two fronts from Babylon to Waziristan. Put a couple of bounty hunters and a bloodhound on the ground east of Tora Bora, leave Iraq in chaos and bring the troops home.

We’ll never know what might have been, had OBL been killed early or late into President Bush’s post-9/11 watch. We do know what actually happened, and more importantly, didn’t happen. Tens of thousands of terrorists trained to wreak havoc on the Lower Forty-Eight went to Iraq to defend the Muslim Homeland, only to be eliminated as a threat to the United States. Al Qaeda’s nation-state and safe havens were eliminated. The streak of safety for U.S. ambassadors abroad since 1979 continued, as did the same for the homeland though the end of Bush’s term.

Significantly, Democrats took control of Congress in 2007, thus requiring the Republican Commander-in-Chief to maximize his constitutional executive power to launch a surge in Iraq that we now know was instrumental in obtaining intel that eventually led to the killing of OBL on President Barack Hussein Obama’s watch. Those living in the real world always understood that it would take TIME before a surge was possible, because an effective counter-insurgency requires the trust of much of the occupied public. But real world tasks carry political risks that Democrats eschew in favor of passing laws that pretend to solve problems. Yes, there are political risks associated with such symbolic actions, but they are usually far into the future.

Fast forward to the eleventh anniversary of 9/11 in Libya. In the Democrats’ world, al Qaeda is no longer a threat. After all, Obama killed Osama, surrendered in Iraq and set a public timetable to do so in Afghanistan, thus ushering in an Arab Spring, by merely leading from behind. Except for the delayed explosion of green jobs and free contraceptives, Utopia was at hand.

Then came the murders of Chris Stevens and three other America diplomats in Benghazi and reality. It turns out that American troops on Saudi soil and a beating bin Laden heart were not the causes of massive hatred of the United States in the Muslim world. Who knew? Well, Democrats should have known since, at least, well 1979, when the Ayatollah replaced the Shah in Iran, and in which, not coincidentally, a U.S. ambassador was last killed.

But no worries, at least the Democrats in Libya weren’t offended by the presence of too many Leathernecks guarding our embassy, consulates and other un-safe havens there and after all, Mrs. Bill Clinton is at the ready to almost fall on her sword after disastrous debates when videos, produced by phantom fundamentalist Christians, that dare to blaspheme the Prophet of Islam, no longer serve as excuses for extremist behavior during the Arab Autumn.

And if all else fails, there is always CNN candy and crow as appetizers for the next GOP landslide.

Half a league, half a league, half a league, onward.

Personally it was the Democrats’ behavior in 2004 and 2005 that opened my eyes to their treason. Before then I was apolitical. After that I realized we had an enemy force inside the country that would destroy American military power in order to score political points. If we as a country cannot be united when it comes to our soldiers, sailors and airmen outside the country, then we will fail. Inasmuch as that is the Democrat objective, the Democrats are an enemy to the US.
