It must be understood, the Pentagon, under the reign of Barack HUSSEIN Obama, is less of a forward arm for America’s defense than a helpmate to its enemies. There you have it.
YES, drone strikes are ordered here and there, but this hardly qualifies as “taking care of business”, particularly when soldiers lives are sacrificed to aid the enemy! How so? Let us count the ways. As most realize, nothing beats going to the top of the heap, and who wouldn’t agree that U.S. SEALS qualify as top dog? Of course they do. So it should come as a great shock that they are, by Obama Inc., disposal garbage – or worse. SEAL TEAM 6/Extortion 17: Sacrificial Lambs On Behalf Of Obama Inc. The Bin Laden “Kill”. Why Were They Set Up ? is a devastating indictment. And what does one make of military higher ups who protect Muslim American soldiers waging jihad on behalf of Allah, as opposed to protecting American interests? What? Well, the following spells it out:
As U.S. Army psychiatrist turned jihadi Nidal Hasan finally goes on trial for shooting 13 fellow soldiers to death at Fort Hood, here is what the government continues to classify the 2009 attack: “Workplace violence.” In what might be termed the audacity of nope, the government has declined to call this al Qaeda–inspired mass murder an act of terrorism because to do so would be “unfair to the victims.” And, perhaps in part because people assumed that the army would take care of the soldiers as it would any other fallen and wounded warriors, there was no huge outpouring of financial support for them as there would later be for, say, the victims of the Boston Marathon bombings. To her great and everlasting credit, nobody has been more vocal about all this than one of the two heroic police officers who took Hasan down and ended the carnage. “Betrayed is a good word,” Police Sgt. Kimberly Munley has said of the way the soldiers have been treated.
Now, mendacity takes many forms, but some actions – or lack thereof – are more egregious than others. And when the Pentagon (on behalf of Obama Inc.) abandons its soldiers, there is little order of higher treachery. Truly.
So to update the readers, the Pentagon is at it again, further betraying its soldiers, sending them to their deaths too…and with American taxpayer dollars in the mix!
“It’s like the United States government subsidizing the Taliban, al Qaeda, the Haqqani network, those groups that are trying to shoot and kill our soldiers,” said Sen. Jeanne Shaheen, D-N.H., a member of the Senate’s Armed Services and Foreign Relations committees, in an interview to be broadcast tonight on ABC News’ “World News with Diane Sawyer”.
A list of 43 companies in Afghanistan was compiled by the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR) using data from both classified Pentagon investigative reports and Commerce Department lists of terror-connected companies. RELATED Exclusive: US May Have Let ‘Dozens’ of Terrorists Into Country as Refugees Among them is a road construction company the U.S. says is partly owned by a leader of the brutal Haqqani network, which was blamed for an attack on the U.S. Embassy in Kabul that claimed 16 lives in 2011.
The cover letter of a classified investigation by the U.S. Army said there was evidence of a direct role of both the company and its owners “in the facilitation and operation of the Haqqani Network” and that “approximately $1-2 million per month flow[s] to Haqqani Network to finance its activities.” A representative of the company said it denies any ties to terrorists and is contesting its inclusion on the U.S. government lists. The representative suggested it might be a case of mistaken identity.
But despite the broader findings, the Pentagon has resisted permanently blocking the companies from getting more U.S. contracts because, its lawyers say, it would violate the “due process” of the companies which would not be able to see the classified information that details their alleged ties to terror groups.
“The reason they’ve given us is that it’s not fair to these contractors that the evidence that we’ve presented, and this is evidence collected by the United States government, is classified,” John Sopko, Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR), told ABC News. “That’s the absurdity of it. We can probably attack them via drone on Monday and we’ll issue them a contract on Tuesday.”
Sopko, along with U.S. commanders in the field and members of Congress have all urged the Pentagon to take action, but to no avail. Sen. Shaheen was one of a bipartisan group of Senators that sent a letter to the Army in late 2012 “expressing concern” about a backlog at the Army’s Suspension and Debarment office, noting the 43 cases involving alleged terrorist groups. “We believe that these 43 cases deserve special attention from the Army due to the nature of their allegations,” the letter said, according to a copy posted on the website for Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn. The Pentagon had arranged for ABC News to interview Lt. Gen. William Phillips of Army acquisition about the concerns, but later canceled, his staff saying “they will be declining an interview for some time in the foreseeable future.”
When ABC News appeared at the Pentagon office that handles the debarment of contracts, the officer in charge said he was not allowed to answer questions without permission. “Well, there are certain regulations that have to be followed, due process regulations,” he began, presumably referring to the contract debarment process. “That gets into things that I cannot discuss. In fact, I’m not allowed to talk to you unless I have the permission of the Army so I’ll have to end this interview at this time.”
In a statement to ABC News, the Army said it has “extensive vendor vetting procedures to prevent the awarding of contracts to such vendors.” It said most of the 43 companies were not awarded any new contracts “as a result of measures currently in place.”
“The army takes seriously any allegations of improper contractor activities and has vigorous processes to ensure that those with whom we do business are not supporting the insurgency or otherwise opposing U.S. and collation forces in Afghanistan” the statement said. Inspector General Sopko says the Army needs to permanently block the companies from receiving any more U.S. taxpayer money, given the seriousness of the information. “I am a former prosecutor, I’ve seen the information and it made my hair stand on end,” Sopko told ABC News.
In a quarterly report to Congress last July Sopko wrote, “I am deeply troubled that the U.S. military can pursue, attack, and even kill terrorists and their supporters, but that some in the U.S. government believe we cannot prevent these same people from receiving a government contract.” “I feel such a position is not only legally wrong, it is contrary to good public policy and contrary to our national security goals in Afghanistan,” he said.
As is said, when the fish stinks from the head up, all manner of crimes are doable. Such is the case when vets, in general, are seen as the enemy, and this charge is more than demonstrably proven by the actions of Obama and surrogates. Do you believe the above is nothing short of hyperventilating allegations? Not so fast. The evidence is more than substantiated through trampling on 9/11/01 heroes/victims alike, as Obama Inc. gives orders to arrest, hound and humiliate vets and patriots!
While many are stymied and duly outraged, not knowing what they can do to change the calculus, there are options. Just perhaps as a starting point…NOT IN MY NAME…NO TAXATION WITHOUT AMERICAN REPRESENTATION should resonate!
In other words, if a concerted push towards withholding taxes gained steam, it is more than likely that said tax revolts would give the leaders pause. For without a blank check from the taxpayer trough, exactly how would they pay for this and that anti-American behavior? Something to think about. More than overdue.
Need additional food for thought? Here it is:
“There is one last thing to which the people can resort if the government does not respect the restrains that the constitution places on the government,” Cannon said. “Abraham Lincoln talked about our right to alter our government or our revolutionary right to overthrow it.”
“That is certainly something that no one wants to contemplate,” he continued. “If the people come to believe that the government is no longer constrained by the laws then they will conclude that neither are they.”
Now, while the above is relating to the Radical-in-Chief’s disregard for his own edicts re Obamacare, the leap from there to here is a short jump. Extrapolate.
