KHALID SHEIK MOHAMMED – OBAMA’S LEGACY?

Another interesting accumulation of facts sent to me by my friend, Ron Jenkins. The more facts that are being shared about the Obama disaster show a trail of events to damage America. How Obama escapes being charged with Treason baffles me. The lawlessness of the past eight years is frightening. After you read this you wonder how one man surrounded with his clandestine staff of Muslim sympathizers were not stopped from the damage they imposed by the Supreme Court.   C Brewer

This is really worth reading …….

Addresses Water Boarding that George W approved and initiated. Obama discontinued it despite strong advice not to do so.

This takes about two minutes to read … it is worth every second. This is something every person in America must know. The single most prominent characteristic of contemporary America is that common sense has been abandoned to political correctness and “feelings.”

As President George W. Bush’s top speechwriter, Marc Thiessen ( The Kelly File on FOX ) was provided unique access to the C I A program used in interrogating top Al Qaeda terrorists, including the mastermind of the 9/11 attack, Khalid Sheikh Mohammad (K S M). Now, his riveting new book, Courting Disaster: How the C I A Kept America Safe (Regnery), has been published. Here is an excerpt from Courting Disaster:

KHALID SHEIK MOHAMMED  

Just before dawn on March 1, 2003, two dozen heavily armed Pakistani tactical assault forces move in and surround a safe house and received a text message from an informant inside the house.

It read: “I am with KSM.” Bursting in, they find the disheveled mastermind of the 9/11 attacks, Khalid Sheikh

Mohammed, in his bedroom. He is taken into custody.  

In the safe house, they find a treasure trove of computers, documents, cell phones and other valuable “pocket litter.” Once in custody, K S M is defiant. He refuses to answer questions, informing his captors that he will tell them everything when he gets to America and sees his lawyer. But K S M is not taken to America to see a lawyer.  

Instead he is taken to a secret C I A “black site” in an undisclosed location.    

Upon arrival, K S M finds himself in the complete control of Americans. He does not know where he is, how long he will be there, or what his fate will be. Despite his circumstances, K S M still refuses to talk. He spews contempt at his interrogators, telling them Americans are weak, lack resilience and are unable to do what is necessary to prevent the terrorists from succeeding in their goals. He has trained to resist interrogation. When he is asked for information about future attacks, he tells his questioners scornfully, “Soon, you will know.”

It becomes clear he will not reveal the information using traditional interrogation techniques. So he undergoes a series of “enhanced interrogation techniques” approved for use only on the most high-value detainees. The techniques include waterboarding. He begins telling his C I A debriefers about active al Qaeda plots to launch attacks against the United States and other Western targets. He holds classes for C I A officials, using a chalkboard to draw a picture of al Qaeda’s operating structure, financing, communications, and logistics. He identifies al Qaeda travel routes and safe havens and helps intelligence officers make sense of documents and computer records seized in terrorist raids. He identifies voices in intercepted telephone calls, and helps officials understand the meaning of coded terrorist communications. He provides information that helps our intelligence community capture other high-ranking terrorists. K S M’s questioning, and that of other captured terrorists, produces more than 6,000 intelligence reports, which are shared across the intelligence community, as well as with our allies across the world.  

In one of these reports, K S M describes in detail the revisions he made to his failed 1994-1995 plan known as the “Bojinka plot” to blow up a dozen airplanes carrying some 4,000 passengers over the Pacific Ocean. Years later, an observant C I A officer notices the activities of a cell being followed by British authorities appear to match K S M’s description of his plans for a Bojinka-style attack. In an operation that involves unprecedented intelligence cooperation between our countries, British officials proceed to unravel the plot. On the night of Aug. 9, 2006, they launch a series of raids in a northeast London suburb that lead to the arrest of two dozen al Qaeda terrorist suspects. They find a U S B thumb-drive in the pocket of one of the men with security details for Heathrow airport, and information on seven Trans-Atlantic flights that were scheduled to take off within hours of each other:

  • * United Airlines Flight 931 to San Francisco departing at 2:15 PM
  • * Air Canada Flight 849 to Toronto departing at 3:00 PM
  • * Air Canada Flight 865 to Montreal departing at 3:15 PM
  • * United Airlines Flight 959 to Chicago departing at 3:40 PM
  • * United Airlines Flight 925 to Washington departing at 4:20 PM
  • * American Airlines Flight 131 to New York departing at 4:35 PM
  • * American Airlines Flight 91 to Chicago departing at 4:50 PM.  

They seize bomb-making equipment and hydrogen peroxide to make liquid explosives. And they find the chilling martyrdom videos the suicide bombers had prepared.

Today, if you asked an average person on the street what they know about the 2006 airlines plot, most would not be able to tell you much. Few Americans are aware of the fact al Qaeda had planned to mark the fifth anniversary of 9/11 with an attack of similar scope and magnitude. And still fewer realize the terrorist’s’ true intentions in this plot were uncovered thanks to critical information obtained through the interrogation of the man who conceived it: Khalid Sheikh Mohammed.

This is only one of the many attacks stopped with the help of the C I A interrogation program established by the Bush Administration in the wake of the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.

In addition to helping break up these specific terrorist cells and plots, C I A questioning provided our intelligence community with an unparalleled body of information about al Qaeda.

Until the program was temporarily suspended in 2006, intelligence officials say, well over half of the information our government had about al Qaeda-how it operates, how it moves money, how it communicates, how it recruits operatives, how it picks targets, how it plans and carries out attacks-came from the interrogation of terrorists in CIA custody.

Former C I A Director George Tenet has declared: “I know this program has saved lives. I know we’ve disrupted plots. I know this program alone is worth more than what the F B I, the Central Intelligence Agency, and the National Security Agency put together have been able to tell us.”

Former C I A Director Mike Hayden has said: “The facts of the case are that the use of these techniques against these terrorists made us safer. It really did work.” Even Barack Hussein Obama’s Director of National Intelligence, Dennis Blair, has acknowledged: “High-value information came from interrogations in which those methods were used and provided a deeper understanding of the al Qaeda organization that was attacking this country.” Leon Panetta, Obama’s C I A Director, has said: “Important information was gathered from these detainees. It provided information that was acted upon.”

John Brennan, Obama’s Homeland Security Advisor, when asked in an interview if enhanced-interrogation techniques were necessary to keep America safe, replied: “Would the U S be handicapped if the C I A was not, in fact, able to carry out these types of detention and debriefing activities, I would say yes.”

On Jan. 22, 2009, President Barack Hussein Obama issued Executive Order 13491, closing the C I A program and directing that, henceforth, all interrogations by U S personnel must follow the techniques contained in the Army Field Manual The morning of the announcement, Mike Hayden was still in his post as C I A Director. He called White House Counsel Greg Craig and told him bluntly: “You didn’t ask, but this is the C I A officially non-concurring.”

The president went ahead anyway, overruling the objections of the agency.

A few months later, on April 16, 2009, President Barack Hussein Obama ordered the release of four Justice Department memos that described in detail the techniques used to interrogate K S M and other high-value terrorists.

This time, not just Hayden (who was now retired) but five C I A directors – including Obama’s own director, Leon Panetta objected. George Tenet called to urge against the memo’s’ release. So did Porter Goss. So did John Deutch.  Hayden says: “You had C I A directors in a continuous unbroken stream to 1995 calling saying, ‘Don’t do this.'”

In addition to objections from the men who led the agency for a collective 14 years, the President also heard objections from the agency’s covert field operatives. A few weeks earlier, Panetta had arranged for the eight top officials of the Clandestine Service to meet with the President. It was highly unusual for these clandestine officers to visit the Oval Office, and they used the opportunity to warn the President that releasing the memos

would put agency operatives at risk. The President reportedly listened respectfully, and then ignored their advice.

With these actions, Barack Hussein Obama arguably did more damage to America’s national security in his first 100 days of office than any President in American history.

But how many people know this?

Let me add another question, how many Americans really care? Uncovering the lawless actions of the Obama White House will show his dream was to start another Civil War to destroy America.  C Brewer   

WHEN WILL AMERICAN LEADERSHIP ADMIT STUPIDITY?


I have no idea who wrote the basic part of this article and I have added and changed some of the words to reflect what I observed  during a lot of time I spent in both radical and peaceful Muslim countries. Many of the descriptions of modern times may seem a fantasy but I can assure you the time to learn that the the Koran has many different beliefs just like we see with the Christian Bible.  I want to thank my old friend Bob McGraw for sharing this with me. If anyone knows who actually collected this factual data please let me know and give credit to a real American patriot.  C Brewer

This is really chilling!!!

In case you need to rev up your blood pressure! Read on……

We the Stupid – In the Aftermath of the Bombing in Paris –We Better Tighten Up Our Resolve Against Radical Islam.

The war actually started in the 7th century and some say it lasted through the 17th century.  Who would contend it never stopped but historically the facts below are correct.

This is why I choke when I hear someone say we will defeat or contain these Islamic terrorists in a few years or even 30 years as recently stated by Leon Panetta .

If the latest batch of murders, beheadings , and killing of innocent Christians has shocked you, maybe you should read this compilation of historical facts about the hatred of Muslims.

WE, THE STUPID

This is all factually (and historically) correct – and verifiable:

In 732AD the Muslim army, which was moving on Paris, was defeated and turned back at Tours, France, by Charles Martell

In 1571 A.D. the Muslim Army/Navy was defeated by the Italians and Austrians as they tried to cross the Mediterranean to attack southern Europe in the Battle of Lapano .

In 1683 A.D. the Turkish Muslim Army, attacking Eastern Europe, was finally defeated in the Battle of Vienna by German and Polish Christian Armies.

This crap has been going on for 1,400 years and I doubt even one of the politicians in Congress even know it.  If these battles had not been won , we might be speaking Arabic and Christianity could be non-existent; Judaism certainly would not exist.

Reflecting :

A lot of Americans have become so insulated from reality that they imagine that America can suffer defeat without any inconvenience to themselves. This is scary but true. Pause a moment and reflect back.These events are actual events from history. They really happened!

1. Do you remember?: In 1968, Robert Kennedy was shot and killed by a Muslim male.

2.   In 1972, at the Munich Olympics, athletes were kidnapped and massacred by Muslim males.

3. In 1972, a Pan Am 747 was hijacked and eventually diverted to Cairo where a fuse was lit on final approach. Shortly after landing it was blown up by Muslim males.

4.   In 1973, a Pan Am 707 was destroyed in Rome , with 33 people killed, when it was attacked with grenades by Muslim males.

5.   In 1979, the US embassy in Iran was taken over by Muslim males.

6. During the 1980 ‘s a number of Americans were kidnapped in Lebanon by Muslim males.

7. In 1983, the US Marine barracks in Beirut was blown up by Muslim males.

8. In 1985, the cruise ship Achille Lauro was hijacked and a 70-year old American passenger was murdered and thrown overboard in his wheelchair by Muslim males.

9. In 1985, TWA flight 847 was hijacked at Athens, and a US Navy diver trying to rescue passengers was murdered by Muslim males.

10. In 1988, Pan Am Flight 103 was bombed by Muslim males.

11. In 1993, the World Trade Center was bombed the first time by Muslim males.

12.   In 1998, the US embassies in Kenya and Tanzania were bombed by Muslim males.

13.   On 9/11/01, four airliners were hijacked; two were used as missiles to take down the World Trade Centers and of the remaining two, one crashed into the US Pentagon and the other was diverted and crashed by the passengers. Thousands of people were killed by Muslim males.

14.   In 2002, the United States fought a war in Afghanistan against Muslim males.

15. In 2002, reporter Daniel Pearl was kidnapped and beheaded by – you guessed it – a Muslim male. (Plus two other American journalists were just recently beheaded).

16. In 2013, the Boston Marathon Bombing resulted in 4 Innocent people, including a child, being killed plus 264 people injured by Muslim males.

No Obama, anyone who can’t see a pattern here to justify profiling is blind, do you see a pattern?

So to ensure we Americans never offend anyone, especially fanatics intent on killing us, airport security screener’s will no longer be allowed to profile certain people.

So, ask yourself “Just how stupid are we???”

Absolutely No Profiling! They must conduct random searches of 80-year-old women, little kids, airline pilots with proper identification, secret agents who are members of the Obama’s security detail, 85-year-old Congressmen with metal hips, and Medal of Honor winner and former Governor Joe Foss,

BUT… leave Muslim Males alone lest we be guilty of profiling.

Ask yourself, “Just how stupid are we?  “In my opinion the American people have completely lost their minds and their Power of Reason???

As the writer of the award winning story ” Forrest Gump ” so aptly put it, “Stupid Is As Stupid Does.”

Each opportunity that you have to send this to a friend or media outlet… Do It!

OR JUST SIT BACK, KEEP GRIPING, AND DO NOTHING. AS OBAMA SAID IN HIS BOOK NOTHING SOUNDS SO BEAUTIFUL AS THE MUSLIM EVENING PRAYERS FROM THE TOWER.

WAKE UP AMERICA!! I have listened to these prayers in person and I have no desire to ever set foot is any middle eastern country again. Sadly we have states like Michigan where we already have a chance to listen to the Muslim prayers. Any American woman who has no understanding of Shira Laws best read up on the torture of young girls, even by the so-called non-violent Muslims.  C Brewer  

AMERICA IS BEING SYSTEMATICALLY DESTROYED, WHY?

THE SADDEST PART IS WE ARE DESTROYING IT OURSELVES!

My great friend and patriot, Connie E, sent me the following article and I have no idea who amassed these facts. I also have no concrete proof that everything stated is absolute fact and I really don’t care. There are enough facts that I do know are truthful that sharing this with as many Americans as possible is important. I am certain that if there are any untruths, I will be bombarded by the Progressives including some of my own children and grandchildren who vehemently disagree with my conservative beliefs.

The sad part is why the national media, including Fox News, ignore the facts they know are true. My biggest disappointment is why the Republicans who control the money we spend do not have the gonads to stop the waste and let events like the ones described happen and continue?

 THE STORY, by ANON!

Read and decide for yourself……maybe this will enlighten you to the fact that the Trojan horse is already inside the white house.

President George W. Bush’s top speech writer, Marc Thiessen was provided unique access to the CIA program used in interrogating top Al Qaeda terrorists, including the mastermind of the 9/11 attack, Khalid Sheikh Mohammad (KSM)

 Now, his riveting new book, “Courting Disaster”, How the CIA Kept America Safe (Regnery), has been published. Here is an excerpt from “Courting Disaster”: “Just before dawn on March 1, 2003, two dozen heavily armed Pakistani tactical assault forces move in and surround a safe house in Rawalpindi. A few hours earlier they had received a text message from an informant inside the house. It read: “I am with KSM.”

 Bursting in, they find the disheveled mastermind of the 9/11 attacks, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, in his bedroom.   He is taken into custody. In the safe house, they find a treasure trove of computers, documents, cell phones and other valuable “pocket litter.”

 It becomes clear he will not reveal the information using traditional interrogation techniques. So he undergoes a series of “enhanced interrogation techniques” approved for use only on the most high-value detainees. The techniques include waterboarding.

 His resistance is described by one senior American official as “superhuman.” Eventually, however, the techniques work, and KSM becomes cooperative-for reasons that will be described later in this book.

 He begins telling his CIA de-briefers about active al Qaeda plots to launch attacks against the United States and other Western targets. He holds classes for CIA officials, using a chalkboard to draw a picture of al Qaeda’s operating structure, financing, communications, and logistics. He identifies al Qaeda travel routes and safe havens, and helps intelligence officers make sense of documents and computer records seized in terrorist raids.

 In an operation that involves unprecedented intelligence cooperation between our countries, British officials proceed to unravel the plot.

They find a USB thumb-drive in the pocket of one of the men with security details for Heathrow airport, and information on seven Trans-Atlantic flights that were scheduled to take off within hours of each other:

With these actions, Barack Obama arguably did more damage to America’s national security in his first 100 days of office than any President in American history.

But how many people know this? Apparently only the few that read this!

After reading this message the real questions I have are;

  1. Why does Congress, the media, our Judicial Branch of our Government and the military let events like this happen?
  2. Why they wait so long to tell the folks the truth?
  3. To those who might read this is, “Why do we sit on our hands and let this happen?
  4. How can any real American, including my own family, or not in an insane asylum, actually vote for Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders or Joe Biden to lead this country?

I am working on a series of articles on America in the 1930’s and if Franklin Roosevelt were alive today he would cry when he has seen how the Progressives have systematically destroyed America’s freedoms. C Brewer
