The argument made in the video http://www.brasschecktv.com/page/20817.html
would be very bad if true- so bad that many will either discount it as
conspiracy-theory or jump to believe it, depending on how they feel
about Obama versus Romney. In truth, probably some of the video is
correct and some isn't. The trick is finding out which is which.
At the same time however, the recent story from the right-wing talk
shows that Obama watched the attacks and personally ordered the rescue
attempts to stand down is not much better, although it has been much
more widely broadcast, in the midst of early voting.
On 660AM, J.D. Wells made much Friday (and re-aired the same show on
Monday) of CIA Director General Petraeus' statement "that no one at
any level within the CIA ordered the rescue attempts to stand-down".
From this, J.D. Wells, and every other neocon talk show host made the
same argument that it was not the CIA, but the administration itself
(i.e. the President) who essentially ordered that the Ambassador be
allowed to die, on account of the fact that putting boots on the
ground in Libya would run counter to the administration narrative that
all was under control in Libya and hurt his re-election chances.
(Nevermind that the neocon talk show hosts are now having a field day
blaming Obama for Ambassador Steven's death.) The statement by
Petraeus helped re-fan the flames just when the media attention was
about to die down. Now on to my next point:
The idea that the right wing talk-show hosts would take a statement
from Petraeus at face value is interesting- they have complete trust
apparently in our CIA to give factual information. The fact is, the
CIA specializes in mis-information. Why the head of the CIA would be
considered a trustworthy giver of facts to the general public is
ludicrous, but that his statement threw Obama under the bus, there is
no doubt. So while we do NOT know that what Petraeus is saying is
true, we DO know Petraeus prefers Romney to be the next President.
Here is another interesting fact. Earlier in the year when Romney's
running mate was yet to be decided, J.D. Wells spoke glowingly one
afternoon about how Petraeus is exactly who we needed as a Vice
President, talking about how he bravely put 9mm slugs into the brains
of captured insurgents until he finally got the intel he needed to
save American lives. I kid you not, I heard him say this on the
radio, and even called in to tell him on the air that I thought he had
lost his mind. This is what J.D.Wells, of the Wells Report, 660AM,
KSKY, offered as an example of why Petraeus would make a good V.P. and
FYI, Petraeus literally rewrote the field manual on Counter-insurgency
based on his experience heading the occupation efforts in Iraq and
Afghanistan. Published 9/11/09.
Now, if the United States federal government ever transitioned to an
overt nightmare domestic police state, motivating an insurrection,
then his expertise would come in handy for a President. Barring that,
I can't really see where such a skill-set would come in handy, except
for the continued counter-insurgency operations that will exist
anywhere a country is occupied by foreign troops, or where puppet
governments (whether dictators or "democratically elected" regimes)
have been installed, or where previously legitimate governments have
been co-opted by a self-serving elite. In the latter situations, he
can continue to do just fine from his present office.
So here is something to watch for: If Petraeus maintains his post in
a new Romney cabinet, you will know that nothing has changed, and that
if you had voted for Romney, you really just played the game that the
power-elite wanted you to play. No doubt about it.
And if he gets promoted you will know we went from the frying pan into the fire.
