Rob O’Neill, The former Navy SEAL who killed Osama bin Laden is slamming Seymour Hersh’s report that challenges the White House’s account of the mission, calling it “garbage.”

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 12, 2015 by sheriffali

[WSJ] Investigative journalist Seymour Hersh published an article Sunday about the 2011 raid on Osama Bin Laden’s compound in Pakistan that immediately went viral, crashing the London Review of Books Web site.

Among its striking claims: Bin Laden was a “prisoner” of the Pakistani intelligence service in his Abbottabad compound since 2006; the United States learned of Bin Laden’s whereabouts through a former Pakistani intelligence officer; Saudi Arabia was “financing Bin Laden’s upkeep”; and Pakistan’s military helped Washington plan the raid.

There’s a lot to absorb in Mr. Hersh’s lengthy story. The White House has denied the allegation that Pakistan cooperated on the raid. Here are three reasons to be skeptical of some of the article’s claims:

Sourcing. This article takes the practice of anonymous attribution to a new level. Mr. Hersh’s 10,356-word account is based nearly exclusively on a handful of unnamed sources–which can’t be fact-checked–and mainly one retired U.S. intelligence official. One of the only named sources is Asad Durrani, a former director of Pakistani intelligence in the early 1990s. In an Al Jazeera interview this year, Mr. Durrani insinuated that Pakistani intelligence knew about Bin Laden’s presence in Abbottabad. But Mr. Durrani retired more than 20 years ago. Even in a country where retired security establishment figures retain influence and access, such a long separation from public service suggests that Mr. Durrani is not the most plugged-in source.

Quotations. Mr. Hersh’s account features voluminous, sometimes paragraphs-long quotations. Some are suspect for logical reasons; among theskepticism expressed online, for example, was a point on social media that the way in which a “former Seal commander” reportedly spoke about SEAL missions is unrealistic. Other remarks appear absurd or, at the least, ill-informed. The retired U.S. intelligence official says that Pakistani military officers believe they are the “keepers of the flame against Muslim fundamentalism.” Based on what I’ve observed as an analyst of Pakistan, I would argue that it’s more accurate to say the Pakistani military is a keeper of the flame of fundamentalism, thanks to its associations with militant groups.

U.S.-Pakistan Relations. In early 2011, U.S.-Pakistan relations were in deep crisisthanks in part to Raymond Davis, a CIA contractor who was arrested after killing two people at a crowded intersection in Lahore. According to Mr. Hersh, at that point the CIA and Pakistani intelligence were closely cooperating and jointly planning the raid on the Bin Laden compound. He writes that the retired U.S. intelligence source said that a Pakistani intelligence “liaison officer” flew with the SEALS on the night of the raid. Unless the crisis in relations was an elaborate cover, it beggars belief to assume such close intelligence cooperation.

Mr. Hersh is a Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter who has broken major stories, including the My Lai massacre in Vietnam and Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq. This account purports to explain an elaborate conspiracy theory, and–as I have written previously–such stories sometimes contain elements of truth.

Still, the issues of sourcing and substance suggest taking Mr. Hersh’s account with a healthy dose of salt.

Do Not Let Republican Candidates Hide Their Extremism These Midterms; Do Not Believe The Hyped-Up Polls; Media Conspiracy With The GOP!

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 22, 2014 by sheriffali

Republicans and the People at Fox News should be ashamed to claim Patriotism and having any “nexus” to The United States Constitution and The Bill of Rights.

 

We’ve been witness to a concerted effort by the Republican Party, with the collusion of the mainstream media, to misdirect the American people, to draw their attention away from George W. Bush and to Barack H. Obama in his place. We’re told there were no terrorist attacks on the U.S. during the Bush administration (hello, 9/11!) but this is just the most prominent example.

 

Just this summer we saw Bush’s press secretary, Ari Fleischer, pretend he didn’t know when the Iraq War started. What is really important to Republicans is not Bush, whom they’d like to simply pretend never existed, but Obama. All history began with Obama.

 

This works on a smaller scale too, where what can’t be wished away can be ignored. Bill O’Reilly laughably claims he is an independent while toeing the Fox News line. So does the less notorious Joni Ernst, though when she opens her mouth you can see she’s all about the tea bagging.

 

And even if it does come up, because we insist on talking about it, we are told the extremism of Republican candidates doesn’t matter. The mainstream media broke its longstanding rule on institutional silence on Republican extremism in 2012, but they seem to have fallen back into their own ways this midterm election cycle. Just the other day, George F. Will, as Media Matters for America tells us,

 

“[D]ismissed Colorado Senate candidate Cory Gardner’s support for federal fetal personhood legislation that would outlaw abortions and some birth control measures nationwide, suggesting that Gardner’s position is irrelevant because the legislation has “zero chance of passing.”

 

Media Matters relates that, “In his October 17 syndicated column, Will sought to neutralize some of the most controversial parts of Gardner’s record: his past support for a statewide personhood bill in Colorado and current co-sponsorship of the Life At Conception Act in Congress”:

 

“Gardner favors over-the-counter sales of oral contraceptives. In addition to being common sense, Gardner’s proposal is his way of making amends for formerly advocating a state constitutional “personhood” amendment (it is again on the ballot this year and will be decisively rejected for a third time) and for endorsing similar federal legislation that has zero chance of passage. By defining personhood as beginning at conception, these measures might preclude birth control technologies that prevent implantation in the uterus of a fertilized egg.” [Politicususa]

Stupidity At Its Best! Al Qaeda Indian Subcontinent Operation attempt to take over an American Aircraft Carrier turned out to be a humongous embarrassment. These Evil Idiots Need To Find A Productive Life Instead of Trying To Get To The 72 Virgins!

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 16, 2014 by sheriffali

Failed terror plot. These are three words that al-Qaeda doesn’t like to hear. People around the globe love that news. But Americans will be particularly happy about it today.

 

Members of al-Qaeda’s newest branch in the Indian Subcontinent had planned to attack and take over an American aircraft carrier last Saturday in Karachi, Pakistan.

 

 Fighters of the Islamic terror group branch that was unveiled two weeks ago had planned to storm an American aircraft carrier at a Karachi port, but found a Pakistani Navy ship in its place, The Telegraph reports. The attackers suffered heavy casualties as the Pakistani Navy easily overpowered their attempt. Three of the al-Qaeda fighters were killed and seven were arrested according to Pakistani officials. Two Pakistani Naval guards were wounded.

 

To start, their plan to actually seize an American aircraft carrier was completely laughable in the first place since they’d have to overpower over 3,000 American servicemen and women with a small group.

 

According to a source interviewed by The Telegraph,

 

 

It was a complete failure, they did not do any kind of damage, some were captured and we caught more, seven so far and may be more to come. They were well-equipped and came with the intention of taking a ship into their custody but they were caught in the initial stages.

 

Of course, when al-Qaeda announced responsibility for the attack on the 13th anniversary of September 11th, they tried to spin it as a near-victory in which several of their fighters were martyred. They claimed that the fighters were former members of the Pakistani Navy.

 

“The Naval officers who were martyred on Saturday in the attack in Karachi were al-Qaeda members. They were trying to attack American marines and their cronies,” the statement said. Al-Qaeda also claimed to have briefly taken control of the ship.

 

If this was al-Qaeda’s way of trying to compete with ISIS in the race to be the most dangerous terrorist group in the world, getting their asses totally kicked by Pakistani sailors won’t help their cause. [Huffington Post Telegraph]

The Biggest “Recruiters” For ISIS Are; CNN, FOX, Some Republican And Democrat Politicians And Here Is Why;

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 14, 2014 by sheriffali

CNN On both CNN Domestic and International they are persistent in their coverage of the murderous evildoers ISIS. CNN and their Guests can’t stop talking about ISIS in their descriptions; ISIS: A well organized group; A well financed group; A well disciplined group; A major recruiting group; A group like none before that has seized large chunks of territory and other descriptions, that awaken the minds of disenfranchised young people from all walks of life to become part of something that maybe beneficial to them, when in fact, it is the total opposite.

 

FOX With their disdain for President Obama they seem to always find people from the Bush Administration that are the same people that are the “creators” of all of this havoc by their unwise decision to Invade and break Iraq into fragments that are coming back to haunt us and the world. Their Guests includes the deranged notables like Dick Cheney, John Bolton, Donald Rumsfeld and others that are on Fox’s Programs from 7PM through 11PM every day, including weekends. Their remarks are; Obama plan is going to fail; Obama is not going to create a coalition; Obama should put Boots on the ground; Obama is weak; Obama created the most efficient terrorist fighting force; Obama lack of action allowed ISIS to recruit tens of thousands; Obama plan cannot stop ISIS.

 

Analysis of CNN and FOX: One is embellishing in ISIS and the other is telling the terrorists that they have nothing to worry about. And since ISIS doesn’t have anything to worry about because Obama doesn’t know what he is doing, it emboldens those in charge of running ISIS and inspires the weak minds to want to or join the ISIS madness.

 

Analysis on Republican and Democrat Politicians; Most Republicans are promulgating that Obama plan doesn’t go far enough and that Obama shouldn’t take off the table, Boots on the ground and that Obama’s foreign Policy is what has turned the world upside down. As for the Democrats, they are insisting that Congress should fully debate this ISIS matter, or, Obama is going back on his word that he campaigned on in 2008 against the Iraq War.

 

With the two Major Cable Networks and the Politicians behavior, why should anyone, especially the terrorists take us seriously when the unwarranted disrespect for President Obama is so loudly permeated by Republicans and the Democrats Co-Presidency is equally loud. “Together we would always aspire and achieve; divided, we would always fall.”

 

On BBC I watched earlier Saturday night a full hour of News. BBC spent about 10 minutes of the beheading of the British Aid Worker and Prime Minister Cameron comments. BBC did call the ISIS terrorists barbaric, but, nothing that the BBC said gave any inspiration to ISIS or people that may be contemplating joining this egregious machination.

 ISIS BIGGEST RECRUITERS

         

President Obama didn’t wreck America, Obama saved America!

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 8, 2014 by sheriffali

Obama is blamed for all that ails America, but, factually, Bush and Cheney recklessness that literally raped the country of precious lives lost in Iraq; tens of thousands wounded; 5.1 trillion for the two wars added to the debt; 1.1 trillion tax cuts for the rich; lack of regulations that wrecked the housing market; millions of jobs lost; the Stock Market plunged to its lowest level; 1,000 plus banks closed down and the loss of America’s goodwill worldwide; manifested itself into the United States Disaster.

 

 

President Obama has been in Office 5 years and 6 months and since that time 10 million jobs were created; the housing market rebounded; the Stock Market that is the symbol of America’s financial strength excelled; The Dow went from 7,200 to 17,000; The NASDAQ went from below 2,000 to 4,800; and the S & P that house most of the 401K plans went from 730 to over 2,000. No banks are closing down and disappearing with depositors funds; Wall Street is regulated to some degree despite Republicans opposition and according to Economists and the Wall Street Journal, under Obama spending stands at 1 ¼%, the lowest than any previous President.

 

 

Obama ended the War in Iraq but the Oil Invasion in 2003 by Bush and Cheney was always going to end up being a House of Cards. Osama bin Laden, the man that brought so much grief and destruction to America was not taken out by Bush and Cheney despite their braggadocios for the 7 years and 3 months they ran the country subsequent to September 11, 2001 disaster. Bin Laden’s death came about by one of the most risky Military Operations in modern times by our well trained men and women in Uniform, under the direction of President Obama.

 

 

Afghanistan, which was a justified War with the world supporting us, Bush and Cheney bifurcated that War to go  on their Oil Invasion of Iraq, hence the reason, 13 years later, we are still in Afghanistan.

 

 

The escalation of the number of terrorists worldwide including ISIS and Al Qaeda in Iraq is the result of Bush and Cheney toppling Saddam Hussein. As bad as we may have viewed Saddam Hussein, while under his rule he was a terror to the Iraqis, but what is more than certain, he didn’t allow terrorists to operate inside of Iraq. George W Bush’s father in 1991 could have taken out Saddam Hussein but he didn’t, and the reason is Saddam Hussein was no religious fanatic, he ran a secular Government.

 

 

So now it is incumbent on all of us to ask the question, why is it that irrespective of all that President Obama has done for America and that is without any help from the “Do Nothing Republican Obstructionist Congress,” Obama’s is demeaned by Republicans, some Congressional Democrats and a large number of the American public.

 

I can’t help but wonder that if Barack Obama was 100% white and Republican, how the GOP would have used him as their Poster Child to win every election for decades to come. The problem with Democrats is that most of them are timid and they seem to be born without a backbone.

 

 

All 1,500 Television Stations; 9,000 Radio Stations; 1,500 News Paper; 3,000 Magazines and the 2,400 Publishers are owned by six [6] corporations. It is no wonder good news like 288,000 jobs created in one month is news for about an hour or two, but when the job market fell in August to 142,000, they are all still beating the drum of “slow-down.”

 

 

In the final analysis, majority of Americans are uninformed, ignorant of facts and those that are not brainwashed, they are sinister about Obama’s 50% African American blood. People don’t like to talk about race, especially the Media, but race became front and center since Mr. Obama became President.

BARACK OBAMA - SAVED AMERICA

 

 

 

 

CNN like other News Outlets are asking: “Who would History judge more favorably; Obama or Clinton?”

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , on November 21, 2013 by sheriffali

The capricious thinker would automatically choose Bill Clinton, but I think it would be Obama!

 

President Obama! If people try not to be so capricious in their thinking, they would see all of the problems below that Obama rectified, including the main person that scarred us with 9/11! Doing good in this world is always costly and the ACA eventually will be rectified, and it will go down in History just as Social Security and the other Social Programs have.

 

Bill Clinton blew with the Political wind. He promised National Insurance and it never happened. He handled Gays in the Military by “Don’t ask Don’t Tell.” He went along with the crazy Republicans and signed into law [DOMA] Defense of Marriage Act for which the Supreme Court said was unconstitutional. [It took Obama to right these wrongs for our fellow human beings from both Clinton and Bush]

 

In 1996 he went along again with the Republicans and signed a Bill “Immigration Reform.” That Bill violates the Double Jeopardy Clause in the Constitution.

 

When he took Office Terrorist blew the Twin Towers basement; He and Janet Reno burn down the David Koresh facility that was housing mostly children; In 1995 Bin Laden and his fellow terrorists blew up the Kobar Towers in Saudi Arabia that was housing our Soldiers; Bill sat on his ass and witnessed the slaughter of 850,000 people in Rwanda and Burundi; In 1998 Terrorist blew up two of our Embassies in Kenya and Tanzania; In 1999 Terrorist blew up the USS Cole killing 49 of our service members. What exactly did Bill Clinton do about all of this madness? Not a damn thing!

 

It was under Bill Clinton’s Stewardship that Mortgage Rules were relaxed and when George W. Bush took over, he compounded the situation and the real estate bottom fell out.

 

As for the economy, yes, Bill did do some good but at the inception of his Presidency he had the Dot Com wind at his back. By 2000, the Dot Com crashed!

 

Notice, I didn’t get into the sex scandal because for me, that was then and now between Bill Clinton, his wife and daughter and God!

 

By no means should my opinion be seen as a defense for Bush and Cheney! As far as I am concerned, these two egregious people took 225 years of American sacrifice and tossed it to the Coyotes’ They both should be in Prison!

PRESIDENT OBAMA - BILL CLINTON 11-21-13

Yemen (AP) Al Qaida’s No 2 died of wounds sustained in a US Drone Attack!

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , on January 25, 2013 by sheriffali

Saeed al-shihri, a Saudi National who fought in Afghanistan and spent six years in the U.S. Military Prison at Guantanamo Bay, succumbed to wounds sustained in a Drone Missile attack in the Southern City of Saada.

 

Al-Shihri’s death is considered a major blow to Al Qaida’s Yemen branch, known as al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula. Washington considers it the most dangerous of the group’s offshoot.

 

Al Qaida in Yemen has been linked to several attempted attacks on U.S. targets, including the foiled Christmas Day 2009 bombing of an airliner over Detroit and explosives-laden parcels intercepted aboard cargo flight last year.
