Comments

Melinda Romanoff

This too will be Bush's fault.

Afghanistan is where empires go to die.

When you're wounded and left on Afghanistan's plains,
And the women come out to cut up what remains,
Jest roll to your rifle and blow out your brains
An' go to your Gawd like a soldier.
- Rudyard Kipling

Jack is Back

Why do these reporters still believe that Obama is smart enough to even spell Afghanistan. They act as if he is a chess grand master and that every move (evolutionary at that) has been designed years back in anticipation of these calculated events. This is, as Clarice has pointed out from Jack Cashill, a man who can't even merge his nouns and verbs correctly. But its not the Modern Language Association who awards "The Smartest Man in the World" accolade, its the legacy media.

narciso

Ah Beaks, I mean Riedel, the fellow who told us, we had nothing to fear from the Muslim
Brotherhood, unfortunately, he doesn't hide like Paul Gleeson's character on a freighter,

This does match Obama's sentiments, he expressed in the Chicago Reader, that Ryan Lizza picked up, in that issue with the inflammatory Spiegelman cover, that we needed
to 'understand the enemy' more than just invade Afghanistan, much less Iraq, well they want us to die,

GMax

Shorter Obama on damn near everything, its all about the O...

narciso

You see why he had to 'throw McCrystal under the bus' he kept interfering with 'finishing
his waffle'

Captain Hate

well they want us to die

The ability to ignore that, no matter how many times it's repeated, or to contort it into something different, won't have good results.

narciso

The struck through piece, in the LUN, actually shows Riedel's 'unique brain patterns, re the GID blown agent, that's actually the more charitable view,

narciso

The less charitable view, suggested by Mauro, in the LUNe, is he is actively lying,

Clarice

On everything else except self aggrandizement the man is a moron.I expect when he was running for President his knowledge of Afghanistan was limited to memorizing the left's idiotic claim that that's where we should have been fighting, instead of "Bush's war in Iraq".

Rick Ballard

Narciso,

The Mohametan Situation was resolved when Obama shot Osama and then declared the scent of Arab Spring to be the most fragrant in the world. It must be true because the MFM has as little to say about it as they do about about the utterly vanquished SkyDragon - which has also disappeared from the MFM.

When Obama forces Merkel to cough up the great wad of OPM which the mean spirited Germans have been hoarding, the age of Aquarian EUtopia will dawn, the President having resolved all problems in this best of all possible worlds.

Just ask the Syrians.

narciso

Yes I know, Rick, the moves to get Fredo away from Johnny Olla, have been working wonderfully, just ask Hyman Roth.


Interestingly, inlike quarrelsome Kahtan, Doughty had great respect for the Asir, although unlike another future Arabist,
St. John Philby, was smart enough not keep them near you, much like those mountain lions on the other thread.

Buford Gooch

OT: Tea Partiers for sure /snark

narciso

No, the People's Front of Judea or the Judean People's Front, take your pick.

An exotic alien, which is what Obama is.

A nit to pick in the Dystrel Affair. Obama was not born to a Kenyan Finance Minister and an American anthropologist. He was born to an impressionable coed and a randy exotic. Or alien, if you prefer.
================================

sailor

Well, I think Obama has ruined everything in Afghanistan! He finally "did" the surge while promising our troops would be out in September 2012--the result is that our brave men are being killed every day by men who are purportedly our allies! It is a horrible mess, and, I would be even more distraught if I had a family member over there.

narciso

Yes, I've become rather cynical,about the enterprise specially about Karzai, who's really relishing he's a 'SOB but our SOB'

I'll believe it when they produce the body.

When is the NYT gonna do a story about how Rev. Wright’s Trinity United shaped Barack Obama?

MarkO

Bingo, Clarice.

He's just not that smart. And, he's a liar.

narciso

Fredo is Bashir, Johnny Olla are the Iranians,
and that has worked out just as well,

Doughty was the British explorer of late 19th Century Arabia, whose insights are very valuable although a touch politically incorrect for this era,

Rick: "Obama Was Not" would make a great game.

It would. Each time a player discovered a rotten answer in the house of cards it gets pulled away.

And when the structure collapsed on Election Day, 2012, all the players get to chant:

"Clean-up on aisle 1600!"

At the risk of sounding like a whacko, my money is still on Frank Marshall Davis as the real pappy. Of course neither was a father in any meaningful way.

Great "Pieces" as always, Clarice.

"but it suggests how President Obama’s thinking about what he once called “a war of necessity” began to radically change less than a year after he took up residency in the White House."

The Evolution began when Obama had access to the inner circle and learned how F***** we are thanks to the 'plan'

When is the NYT gonna do a story about how Rev. Wright’s Trinity United shaped Barack Obama?

On the Chris Matthews show he talked about the republicans bringing race back to the election by raising Reverend Wright. I was a little confused because I thought Wright was about religion not race. But Chris kept up that meme until everyone agreed republicans are racists.

Then he raised the "religious" issue of Romney's mormonism, and someone commented that Mormons were racists until a few years ago so it's fair game.

My head spun around 3 times and now my neck is sore.

quantas

Oh, you think Obama fired McChrystal's ass because of the Rolling Stone article? It didn't help, but it was just the frosting on the cake of rat poison.

The failure of the offensive in Marjah launched February 2010 seemed to help bring Obama into the 'McChrystal: idiot and liar" camp, but it was the civilian casualties that screwed us with the locals.

BTW; the night raid idiocy started in Iraq and it was SO successful there, we exported that smart policy to Afghanistan.

Hope in one hand

The right inists that the Occupy movement is aligned with, sympathetic to or manipulated by the Obama administration. The reactionaries will not let go of this fixed idea, even though all of the evidence points in the opposite direction.

Example: Three young "anarchists" associated with the Occupy movement have been charged with plotting to bomb Barack Obama's campaign headquarters and Rahm Emanuel's home.

On the media, virtually every policy document I read at some point brings up media involvement to gain implementation. I was just reading some of the materials since Planet Under Pressure in March getting ready for Rio.

Skydragon may be finished but the world vision it was created for endures. It also pointed out all the interconnected intl relationships that have been created so that a failure to come to a singular agmt in Rio should not need to stop implementation. People to manage and control. Resources etc.

And whoever last asked me about what the World Council of Churches was up to on all this, LUN.

Obama was not-

Kidding about fundamentally transforming America.

Clarice,

There has to be a way to work a vignette from The Life and Times of President Zelig von Munchausen into your Pieces every once in a while. It would be a great fit with his Forest Gump efforts at rewriting Presidential biographies.

"The Evolution began when Obama had access to the inner circle and learned how F***** we are thanks to the 'plan'"

Not even the world-class weasel Obama offers up that imbecilic excuse.

Obama had "access to the inner circle" on January 21, 2009. His surge began in 2010. That surge has cost a lot of American lives, and for nothing.

I believe satire, ridicule and humor are the most effective cleansing agent in times like these, especially when the MSM won't do its job.

The triumvirate of Feldman, Steyn and Ramirez are coming to the rescue.

Bravo Clarice.

Bumper sticker of the day -

MarkO

"His surge began in 2010. That surge has cost a lot of American lives, and for nothing."

Obama knew that the surge was not intended to achieve progress, let alone victory. It was set in motion after he took an inordinate amount of time to attempt to learn what it was all about. Then, he made the decision to send an inadequate number of troops for the purported objective and announced an immediate withdrawal.

Quisling?

Rats abandoning the ship so soon, well it is badly listing to the port and taking on water! Here:

Newark Mayor Cory Booker credited Bain Capital with growing businesses and said attacks on private equity must stop, during “Meet the Press” Sunday.

As far as that stuff, I have to say from a very personal level, I’m not about to sit here and indict private equity. It’s—to me, we’re just getting to a ridiculous point in America. Especially, I know, I live in a state where pension funds, unions and other people are investing in companies like Bain Capital. If you look at the totality of Bain Capital’s record, they’ve done a lot to support businesses, to grow businesses; this to me, I’m very uncomfortable.

Cory, that is going to make you persona nongrata on the Upper West Side.
