Obama's National Security Team: The Axis of Feeble

Its 1937 all over again in Washington as our jaunty President is busy loading up the executive branch with Czars who could be doppelgangers for the boys FDR tried to pack in to the Supreme Court On the international scene, it seems Barack Obama has placed Korean kamikaze leader, Kim Jong-Il in charge of America’s holiday fireworks program. Kim has turned out to be The Little Elvis That Could with a finale planned for the 4th of July that is something of a Pearl Harbor do-over. Maybe it’s really more like 1941. The frail Asian Charles Atlas-wannabe keeps kicking sand in Obama’s face in a vain attempt to get a manly response from our feckless chief executive. While Kim angles for a nuclear confrontation with the world’s largest arsenal of fissile material, Obama has the U.S. Navy circling the Hawaiian Islands with catcher’s mitts, hoping to intercept the probably fizzling Korean fireworks finale. Most Americans would prefer more pitching and less catching.
Gifted with the greatest break-through for Iranian freedom since before Hulagu crushed Persia, our pusillanimous President promises to get right back to us with a firm stance, as soon as Axelrod and Emanuel finish sorting out the opinion-poll tea leaves. One thing is certain, the Iranian democracy movement and others like it can count on one sure thing from America’s mouthpiece: “Just words.” As Gerard Warner makes plain in the UK Telegraph:
“(President Pantywaist) is trying to steer a course between appeasement and rhetoric about the Iranian "threat", while knowing he may eventually have to knuckle down and accept a nuclear Islamic republic, since Barack doesn't do war.”
Sadly it’s as clear as a bulldozer path through downtown Flint, Michigan that Barack doesn’t do war, at least not in the conventional militaristic sense of the world. Not very well, anyway. While the administration’s current treatment of its Inspectors General seems war-like, Barry and the girls back in D.C. really have no qualms with protecting the baksheesh machine he ramped up with the first few trillion dollars of the stimulus
You’d have to go back to Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid to match the sense of wonder created by the unholy trio at the core of Obama’s national security team:
“Who are those girls?”
Not since President Peanut has our national security team been so overmatched. Almost daily America is threatened by the surviving dregs of the Axis of Evil , while B.O. has his Axis of Feeble in charge of the Department of State, Homeland Security and purportedly representing American interests at the U.N.
Where do we start? How about over at Foggy Bottom, where Congress made a special exception to allow Hillary’s husband to continue on the payroll at the House of Saud while continuing in to rake in Chinese loot, too. The only way Hillary could be more demonstrably anti-Israel would be to show up at her press conferences in a burqua. The most telling pronouncement of Clintonian vapidity had to be her pose as modern dance reviewer when asked to speak out against the America-bashing of Daniel Ortega:
“For 50 minutes, Obama sat mute, as a Marxist thug from Nicaragua delivered his diatribe, charging America with a century of terrorist aggression in Central America….
Hillary Clinton was asked to comment: "I thought the cultural performance was fascinating," she cooed.
Pressed again on Ortega's vitriol, Hillary replied: "To have those first-class Caribbean entertainers all on one stage and to see how much was done in such a small amount of space. I was overwhelmed."
Little did we know that when that red phone at the White House rings at 3:00 a.m. it will be somebody looking for a dissertation on Latin American choreography.
Incredible as it may seem, Pantsuit Woman is probably Obama’s ablest national security team member. Over at the Department of Homeland Security, Janet Napolitano has yet to discover an illegal alien she doesn’t love, unless they are wearing ice-skates . This woman is just another “Obama-caused disaster” waiting to happen. How can we defeat the terrorists when the amorphous blob in charge of our domestic security prioritizes creating politically correct euphemisms rather than taking action to secure our borders? While Janet focuses on those maple-syrup swilling terrorists in mittens from the Great White North , she has exactly reversed the appropriate priority on the Mexican Border:
The Republic reported today that Janet Napolitano is “redeploying” 360 U.S. border agents from their jobs protecting American interests so that they can now devote their time (to) inspecting vehicles travelling into Mexico.
That’s right. Bizarro Pantsuit Woman believes she is now in charge of securing the border for the Mexican government. Never mind all that focus on illegals sneaking into the U.S. and the Mexican drug cartels turning our kids into 21st century Cheeches and Chongs : it’s high time we investigate those going into Mexico. Maybe we can confiscate their sun-block and immodium tablets and re-distribute them to the Uyghurs vacationing at our expense in Bermuda .
Somewhere, somebody is thanking Wicca that Obama saved the United Nations gig for Susan Rice. But it certainly won’t be Israelis or any of her former client states in Africa. She has benefitted from the best multi-culturalist education that European could muster up, with her
“classmates and professors at Oxford includ(ing) advocates of the role of the United Nations and international law (Sir Adam Roberts, Benedict Kingsbury),[7] of global economic governance and international economic cooperation (Ngaire Woods, Donald Markwell).”
I wonder: was there any American history included in her curriculum?
Ms. Rice specialized in African studies, and used her scholarship to its fullest while serving as Assistant Secretary of State for African Affairs under family friend Madeleine Albright in the Clinton administration. A Newsweek article in 1998 suggested that the U.S. State Department turned a blind eye to the
Overthr(o)w (of )the notorious dictator Mobutu Sese Seko. Administration sources insisted they had no prior knowledge of the offensive, but according to one highly placed strategist of the war, Washington had promised not to oppose such an incursion. It's a fine, Clintonian, distinction. ""Anything's better than Mobutu, Susan Rice told one acquaintance at the time. But in the view of many Africa specialists, Washington's tacit complicity in the violation of the Congo's borders was dangerously destabilizing.”
The respected Sammy Benoit, editor of Yid with Lid , describes Rice as a Joe Wilson apologist, and places her squarely in the Clinton tinfoil bunker that rejected the Sudanese offers of shared information on terrorists including the offer to hand over Bin Laden:
according to several of her former colleagues, who say she deserves a hefty portion of blame for the fact that Osama bin Laden wasn't neutralized during the 1990s.
"The FBI, in 1996 and 1997, had their efforts to look at terrorism data and deal with the bin Laden issue overruled every single time by the State Department, by Susan Rice and her cronies, who were hell-bent on destroying the Sudan," one-time Clinton diplomatic troubleshooter Mansoor Ijaz told radio host Sean Hannity in 2002
Let’s get this straight: while serving as the Undersecretary of State for African Affairs, Ms. Rice is reported to have actively sought to undermine the governments of Zimbabwe and the Sudan. And now she is representing all of America? How do you like our chances?
Beyond Ms. Rice’s incompetent meddling in the affairs of African clients lies her pixie-dust view of the United Nations and its spin-off, The International Criminal Court:
"The United Nations is indispensable for advancing these goals and making our world a better, safer place," she said.
(And with a straight face I might add.)
"The International Criminal Court, which has started its first trial this week, looks to become an important and credible instrument for trying to hold accountable the senior leadership responsible for atrocities committed in the Congo, Uganda and Darfur."
Terrific. Maybe Ms. Rice can get Sonya Sotomayor appointed to the international body instead of the Supreme Court and at least do something positive for Americans.
Ahmedinijad and Kim must be lying awake at night laughing themselves sick. As though Obama and Biden weren’t pegging the wimp meter enough by themselves, B.O. added insult to injury by going to the Affirmative Action casting couch to enlist The Axis of Feeble to head his national security effort.
May God have mercy on our souls.
