Obama, the Middle East and Islam - An Initial Assessment

Reader comment on item: Obama, the Middle East and Islam - An Initial Assessment

Submitted by Dean M. (United States), Feb 3, 2009 at 16:55

National security trumps all at the Federal level. For Mr. Obama to have the blessing of so many, to include Mr. McCain, former President Bush and Hillary Clinton--willing to work for him as Secretary of State--means he has passed some kind of test in the minds of Washington insiders. And to have his personal records so completely removed from public access could not be done without extensive government involvement.

Mr. Obama, in his younger years, worked for BIC (Business International Corporation) which is thought to have served as a cover people working for the CIA. Mr. Obama went to Pakistan--on what kind of passport we know not--during the Afghan war with the Soviets. We were smuggling arms via Pakistan at that time to the Bin-Laden & Company in Afghanistan. During the Presidential campaign, Mr. Obama said he would send forces into Pakistan to get Bin-Laden.

Watching him somewhat closely, there seemed to be something personal in his tone. The only one who seemed to notice this was Mr. McCain who said in one of the debates, "you don't aim a loaded gun at someone unless you intend to use it." This was said regarding Mr. Obama's statement that he would use military force in Pakistan. Obviously, Mr. Obama intended to use the loaded gun. He takes office. During his first week CIA drones fire missiles into Pakistan hitting a target, killing possibly 20 militants. He then sends Richard Holbrooke as a special envoy to Pakistan. He diverts 3,000 troops on their way to Iraq to Afghanistan saying that he intends to nearly double the size of troops assigned there--from the current 36,000 to at least 60,000. Meatime, Bin-Laden had released a mocking challenge to Obama, calling him "a house n--," of the American Establishment.

There are a lot of "hints" or "suggestions" as what Mr. Obama is really about. I could spell it out if folks can't figure this out on their own.
