Skip to comments.The Obama Doctrine: American Lives are Expendable (This is Why Bengazi Happened and will again)
Posted on 11/03/2012 4:01:45 PM PDT by broken_arrow1
The Obama White House, the Clinton State Department, and Panetta's Department of Defense have guiding principles in Afghanistan that, if applied to Benghazi, explain the administration's decision to deny air support to the Americans fighting for their lives on 9/11/12.
The denial of air support to our troops in battle is normal operating procedure for this commander in chief. He doesn't have to give special orders to do it. It is the Obama Doctrine on the War on Terror: do not kill Muslim civilians. Let American soldiers die instead. That is how Obama thinks he will win the hearts and minds of the Islamic world.
In Afghanistan, the military is required to deny air support, even in the midst of battle, if it could possibly result in civilian casualties. Under Obama, it is required that the military sacrifice the lives of our soldiers when jihadis are firing from population areas. The Benghazi safe house where Tyrone Woods, Sean Smith, and the others were defending themselves against al-Qaeda was in a neighborhood. Therefore, if the Afghanistan rules of engagement were applied, no air support and no reinforcements would be sent.
Following the same mindset, the Clinton State Department's main diplomatic principle is to show how much we respect Muslim sensibilities. Ambassador Stevens' repeated requests to not withdraw his U.S. Marine security detail were denied by the State Department on those grounds. Just a few weeks before 9/11, Stevens was reduced to relying on local Libyan militia for his safety and the safety of his staff. He was scared for his life, and on 9/11, he gave his life. He was sacrificed to the Obama administration's diplomatic doctrine.
Under the Obama administration, the lives and safety of American diplomats and military personnel come third after respecting Muslim lives and sensibilities...

Just wait until we all hit 65 and ALL our lives are expendable under Obamacare! That being said, Obama has never cared about our military. They are just a path to his own self aggrandizement. As are all Government workers. He will take credit for ANYTHING good that anyone does while he is POTUS. Anything bad is always someone else’s fault. Whenever he claims C-I-C status, I throw up a little in my mouth.

“The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam”,Obama said in his UN Speech in September. He is leading the way on this statement of his.

What the article says is that under the Obama policy, the MILITARY IS REQUIRED TO DENY AIR SUPPORT IF IT COULD RESULT IN CIVILIAN CASUALTIES. I'm putting this in all caps because this is the very first thing that makes sense and ties everything together.
The curious thing is that with his drone attacks, Obama doesn't seem to care...which I suspect is primarily because he is taking out people who might offend the Saudi royal family, who have been under attack from their very own house-grown AQ, which wants to seize their power and wealth.
But as far as protecting Americans goes, we are at the bottom of Obama's list.
In my opinion, this is the most significant thing that has been said so far and is the only rational explanation of the failure to rescue or defend Americans and American interests.
BTW, American Thinker unfortunately seems to have done something to its website so that people can't post a few pithy quotes on other websites. The problem is that you can post so little (nothing from down in the article) that nobody is going to read it or it's going to be meaningless. Counter-productive, American Thinker! If you want to influence the discourse, people have to be able to access the articles and post enough of them on other websites to interest other readers. The first sentence won't suffice.
This is unfortunately very true.
This article struck me in the same way - it ties it all together. What a POS the POTUS is! Our sons serving in the military are sitting ducks...

How do you insult a murderous pedophile?...
If Obama just wanted to kill Americans, there are easier ways than denying air support. For the 50th time this week, Obama is just a dirty little money-grubbing Democrat grifter. He’s trying to take the focus off Benghazi because it exposes his war for profit scheme with Soros. If he’s this secret Moslem, than by golly he’s one heck of an actor. He likes big houses. He likes having his wife go on expensive shopping trips. He likes to go on nice vacations and golf. That’s the poorest excuse for a committed socialist or jihadist I’ve ever seen. He acts like a dirty little money-grubbing Democrat grifter, and that’s because he is one. Everyone wants to believe this is some cold-war thriller or jihad. It’s just killing people and breaking stuff for profit. We’re dealing with big time thieves. Don’t make it more complicated than it is. Are our enemies taking advantage of this chaos caused by these grifters? Of course. But they aren’t driving this. This is a Soros operation. Look at Aaron Klein’s story in today’s WND.
No amount of obamacare can put them back together again.
