Captain,
Those lines remind of the dead banger “he was turning his life around” bullshit.

JM Hanes

The strategy seems clear enough to me.

Captain Hate

Why couldn't he punish them? Why couldn't they be charged with crimes? Statute of limitations? It didn't seem like it was that long. Or was it some ridiculous sovereign immunity holding?

I mentioned last night that daddy was outraged at this and I agree. Sullivan has a chance to finally do the right thing on November 7 and he damn sight better not drop the ball again.

Buckeye

Jeff Bezos, a philanthropist known for his concern for religious tolerance, was found dead from mysterious causes.

JM Hanes

LOL, Stephanie! Ignatz's "…. On Fifth Ave." was pretty damn funny too.

Captain Hate

Right Gentlejim; I'm sure you've had a gag reflex to a few of those weepy lies.

clarice

jimmyk, it's complicated and I cannot remember every detail, but he appointed a master to look into it and while the master confirmed the misconduct he lacked the power to punish them except by requiring retraining in ethics. Doubtless, if Powell is right here, the wrongdoing was done while the case is still pending and she's right, the judge can find them in contempt.

JM Hanes

Looks to me like al Bagdadi spent a lot of years dying his beard. Am I mistaken in thinking that hair usually starts going grey strand by strand, not suddenly all at once?

sbwaters

Was it clapper or brennan who met with Associated Press reporters to compare notes.

Link?

Never forget—Obama also had the location of our hostages for SEVEN WEEKS, including young Kayla Mueller, but refused to rescue them. When they finally went in, they were gone. Maybe if they had been TRAITORS like Bergdahl he would have acted sooner to save them. - Verner

JM Hanes

My point being that "austere" is not the word I'd choose to describe a "religious scholar" who wears his vanity on his face.

Narciso

Brennan, then they pegged an occasional fbi contractor for the leak, of the body bomber.

Clapper leaked the dossier to cnn, tomato tomatoe.

The always worthwhile Caroline Glick, in reference to Warren and Sanders saying they'd threaten to withhold Israeli aid if Israel didn't surrender to the Palis:

There is no substantive difference between Trump’s alleged use of US military assistance to Ukraine as a means to coerce Ukraine to bow to his will and their intention to use US military aid to Israel to achieve a similar outcome. But of course, Warren, Buttigieg, and Sanders are coddled by the partisan media and left untouched by the bureaucracy. And Trump is being subjected to an impeachment probe....

With the Democrats in the media and the federal bureaucracy now full partners in their party’s radical actions and initiatives, there is every reason to expect that after they finish with Trump, they will turn their attention to Israel.

The Russians had to be notified beforehand, so they wouldn't endanger the mission.

Congress had to be notified after, so they wouldn't endanger the mission, either.

GUS

Don't worry General Winnefeld after we hang Al Quds Brennan, "we'll" bury him at sea. If that makes you happy.
General Winnefeld, I don't believe your ugly libtard ass was on the Pakistan raid that killed Bin Laden, nor were you at the burial at sea.

STFU ASS HOLE.

GUS

I apologize General Winnefeld. How do you feel about selling dead baby body parts?

From henry's 12:57, Pelosi quote:

"@realDonaldTrump must present the American people with a clear strategy to confront ISIS."

That right there is why you can't trust Democrat with any form of security information. She wants to tell ISIS and other threats Trump's strategy under the guise of telling the American people.

Buckeye

And while this was all happening, unlike Zero, Trump wasn't curled up in the fetal position.

Yes, JMH, though you won't find it in the MSM.

Maybe Pelosi Galore will understand this. ISIS aren’t like a hive of honeybees that have decided to move into my house. If they were I’d contact a professional to have them safely removed so that the hive could remain productive and beneficial. ISIS are diseased vermin invading my home. What do you do with vermin? You hire a professional to kill them deader than hell wherever you find it. Seems like reasonable strategery to me.

Bin Laden killing was for retribution. Baghdadi was for prevention. Seems that makes this one more important.

from now on to the end of time, whenever the Washington Post analyzes Trumps words, please remind them that they once described a mass murdering serial rapist ISIS ghoul as an "austere religious scholar."

jimmyk

Jane, I saw someone on the MSM claiming that because Trump destroyed the ISIS caliphate, it's not clear how much control Al-Baghdadi had any more. See how that works? Turn two successes into meh events.

Jack is Back!

Another example of the main print media losing any sense of self-awareness, at Clarice's 1f:40. When you start attracting the caliber of satire at her link then you might want to do a deep introspection of your values.

Captain Hate

Those are brutal, clarice.

I'm sure you're correct on what Sullivan was allowed to do with the Ted Stevens creep DOJ attorneys because Sidney Powell on Levin's Friday podcast called him a hero of the case.

JM Hanes

Clarice:

"t's my understanding that these mooks die their beards red to show some connection to Mohammed who also died his beard red."

I'll be darned, you learn something new here everyday.
Not sure whether this site's author is just not PC or is white tinfoil hatter, but he had the most interesting take. QE2 is related to the Prophet! Elsewhere I discovered that the Prophet instructed his aging followers not the pluck out their white hairs, but to dye them with henna, which seems a lot more trouble to me. Apparently vanity is no sin when you can invoke the name of the prophet. Neither is anything else, it seems.

Jane

"Jeff Bezos, a philanthropist known for his concern for religious tolerance, was found dead from mysterious causes."

Buckeye,

That's a joke right? I know people who know him well.

"Jane, I saw someone on the MSM claiming that because Trump destroyed the ISIS caliphate, it's not clear how much control Al-Baghdadi had any more. See how that works? "

Jimmy,

I'm constantly stunned by how much purposeful damage the press does. We are now Russia. Won't be long before they shut down those of us who don't agree.

Buckeye

Well Jane, maybe your people should try to influence his behavior.

WaPo isn't pulling that crap without his tacit approval.

Jane

I've been watching the ZOLO Championship - including at 3:00 AM today. It's been all screwed up because of bad weather. Tiger is leading by 3 with an unknown number of holes to go. He left the course on hole 11, but I'm not sure he started at 1, because they keep moving things around. It says it's back on at 2:00 PM Japan time. Anyone know if that is 2:00 AM here?

Jane

"Well Jane, maybe your people should try to influence his behavior.

Buckeye,

So you read that in the wP?

BTW he's a pretty impressive guy, even if you hate his politics.

Captain Hate

I think it's 1 a.m. here, Jane.

Buckeye

Jane, no I didn't read that in the WaPo.

I have "prayed" for years that George Soros would drop dead.

I don't care one iota if it is from natural causes or not.

I have only come to think about Bezos that way recently.

And the fact that he is a friend of friends...so be it.

Jane,

I just read your September 27th comment on the passing of the inimitable, brilliant daddy last March. I only check in from time to time, so I didn't know. Usually, I check in to see what's happening in the late night at JOM segment. That's where I always found the informative, insightful and humorous entries that daddy left from wherever he was in the world.

I was reading this morning's comments, so I can't explain how I found your September 27th comment. I can only say how much this saddens me. Daddy had such a quick, intelligent mind and a way with humor that was unequaled. I will miss him. Please convey my sincere condolences and very best wishes to his family.😪

matt - deplore me if you must

These haters fail to realize that hell is raining down on ISIS and Trump is telling all the little Baghdadis he's coming for them too. That was a very clear message, especially with the dogs chasing him down. Very haram, that.

Defile forms to the right.

No real mention of the cooperation of the Kurds in nailing Baghdadi's #2.

Hmmm...when was the genocide of the Kurds supposed to start?

The whole thing is really blowing up in their faces and the SNL foopah really backfired on Alec Baldwin and his cronies.

The establishment is now saying to themselves "Where's my credibility? I knew I left it somewhere around here."

YMMV

sbwaters

Jack, we publish unpaid obits of famous/notorious people that come from the Associated Press when we believe they would be of local interest.

AP's headline in this case is: Islamic State leader leaves a legacy of terror

The abridged version begins:

BEIRUT (AP) — Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi sought to establish an Islamic "caliphate" across Syria and Iraq, but he might be remembered more as the ruthlessly calculating leader of the Islamic State group who brought terror to the heart of Europe and set up a short-lived organization so extreme that it was shunned even by al-Qaida.

With a $25 million U.S. bounty on his head, al-Baghdadi steered his chillingly violent but surprisingly disciplined followers into new territory by capitalizing on feelings of Sunni supremacy and disenfranchisement at a period of tumult after the Arab Spring.

One of the few senior IS commanders still at large, al-Baghdadi died Saturday when he detonated his suicide vest in a tunnel while being pursued by U.S. forces in Syria's Idlib province, killing himself and three of his children, U.S. President Donald Trump announced Sunday. He was believed to be 48.

"He didn't die a hero, he died a coward, crying, whimpering and screaming," Trump said.

AP today also has the obit for Little Feat’s guitarist: NEW YORK (AP) — Paul Barrere, guitarist and singer for the rock group Little Feat, has died. He was 71.

Jane

I understand Buckeye. I know a lot of his history and am very impressed by it, even if I hate his politics. I don't read the WP and don't think he controls the writers but I understand your feelings. whenever I know someone who people decide to hate, when they don't know them personally, it makes me mad. But then I think of Clinton, Comey, Brennan etc, who must have friends somewhere and realize I don't learn my own lessons.

sbwaters

I don't read the WP and don't think he controls the writers

Control, no. Influence, most likely.
