“I said we’d refocus on the people that actually attacked us on 9/11 and today, al-Qaida is on the run and bin Laden is dead.” — Barack Hussein Obama, stump speech in Miami, Oct. 11, 2012

“High-level people from al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula are talking about a major attack.” – U.S. Representative and House Intelligence committee member C.A. “Dutch” Ruppersberger (D-Md.) on ABC’s “This Week,” Aug. 4

“This is the most serious threat that I’ve seen in the last several years. There’s been an awful lot of chatter out there” among terrorists planning attacks. – Senator and Intelligence Committee member Saxby Chambliss (R-Ga.) on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” Aug. 4

Would someone please explain this to me?

We’re told al-Qaida is the enemy. We’ve been told they were responsible for the original 9/11 attacks and that we’ve fought and are fighting a 12-year-long war in Afghanistan and fought an eight-plus year war in Iraq to defeat them. We currently have assets fighting them in Pakistan, Syria, several African countries and probably in some places we haven’t heard about. But the U.S. Army is paying al-Qaida-affiliated companies — companies with ties to the Afghan insurgency, the Taliban, Haqqani network and al-Qaida — while fighting those same al-Qaida and Taliban forces in Afghanistan.

Yet when al-Qaida rose up to overthrow Moammar Gadhafi in Libya, U.S. and NATO assets covered for them and supplied them with arms. And when al-Qaida rose up to overthrow Bashar Assad in Syria, Obama signed a secret order authorizing U.S. support for them. Senators like John McCain and Lindsey Graham have called for even more support, including a no-fly zone, which is an overt act of war.

The United States was running arms to al-Qaida in Syria through the consulate in Benghazi, Libya. Al-Qaida attacked the consulate and killed four Americans there. But Obama said they didn’t.

Those al-Qaida operatives being supported by the U.S. have gassed civilians, beheaded Christians and burned them in churches, and even eaten the heart of a vanquished enemy.

Now, we’re told an attack on the scale of the original 9/11 attack is eminent; and it’s coming from al-Qaida. It could be in the United States. It could be anywhere. Our embassies and diplomatic posts have closed in 19 countries. Graham says al-Qaida has been on steroids since the Benghazi attack, and he’s scared.

This is all very confusing.

So is it Eastasia or Eurasia? Are those affiliated with al-Qaida the good guys or the bad guys? Does anyone else care enough to ask?

    “I said we’d refocus on the people that actually attacked us on 9/11 and today, al-Qaida is on the run and bin Laden is dead.”

    “High-level people from al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula are talking about a major attack.”

    The Answer is quite simple Mr. Livingston, one of the two statements is an outright lie with a third possibility being both are lies. I personally believe the third option is the true one.

      Al-Qaeda and Muslim Brotherhood operatives have been KNOWINGLY infiltrated into HIGH government positions. IF there IS a LEGITIMATE danger, THEY are in a position to enhance it.

    We all want to know…Presently that is difficult under the different scenarios our government seems to be operating. Keeping us in a state of confusion. Never knowing who or what we are supporting.. I am aghast with why we seem to be supporting the rebels in Syria when they have been beheading Christians and those citizens of Syria who have endorsed a neutral stand.

    True Assad has been a dictatorial regime, however ISRAEL has been able to exist without any real threats from Syria since their last encounter years ago. Seems that we would like to continue with that scenario. Why are we supporting a regime that we have been at war with since 9/11. Likewise why did we support the over throwing Libya. Not much going on with our war with
    al-Qaida and the Taliban that I understand anymore. On one hand we are at war with them and on the other we seem to be brothers in arms. It just doesn’t compute any more.

    We keep having to fight an “enemy” in the Middle-east as an excuse to keep our military there to protect our interests in keeping oil traded in the U.S. Dollar. All our wars are fought for the GOD of this sad world. Not Jehovah, but G.O.D. Gold, Oil, Drugs.

  • Michael Shreve

    Sleeping with the enemy is BAD, but ARMING and FUNDING them is suicidal.

      Good Analogy, Michael

  • Deerinwater

    Politics ~ makes for strange bedfellows.

    Such matters can’t not be framed in neat boxes labeled “GOOD” “BAD” “RIGHT & “WRONG”

    We hear the term used, “Friends” and “Allies” and for good reason ~ they don’t have to be one and the same.

    To unite for a single cause is Noble ~ but the marriage is not forever but to only address “NOW”

    Radical Islam is an enemy to the world population and so is radical Christianity.

      Good comments, Deer
      We seem to have went into the middle east like a bull in a china shop. We are really in Afghanistan to protect a pipeline. If we would have looked at history, all we had to do was just go to each warlord that controlled his particular area, and paid them to protect our pipeline. That is how it has been done for thousands of years and it sure would have been a lot cheaper than a war.

    Almost as bad as the Reagan arms sale to Iran and to the Contras. Why was he not impeached ????????

    The whole basis of Mr. Livington´s article here is founded on a false premise. Al Qaeda was not the only group that rose up to overthrow Ghaddafi and Assad. They were in fact a minority within the coalition of forces that rose up to overthrow both dictators. Anyone with even a cursory knowledge of the civil wars in both nations knows this. But Bob has distorted this reality to make his usual, paranoid, the U.S. government (especially under Pres. Obama) is pure evil argument. No suprise here. The U.S. is in fact pulling for more moderate forces to exercise political power in both Libya and Syria. And in Egypt as well. If Obama wants the Muslim Brotherhood to hold power in Egypt were is the U.S. invasión of Egypt to overthrow the military? Where is the denial of recognition of the military government? Where is the U.S. cut-off of all U.S. military and economic aid to the military gov´t in Egypt? You have no answers for these questions, do you Bob?

      Dear mark,

      You write: “They were in fact a minority within the coalition of forces that rose up to overthrow both dictators. Anyone with even a cursory knowledge of the civil wars in both nations knows this.” That is actually not the case at all.

      You write: ” And in Egypt as well. If Obama wants the Muslim Brotherhood to hold power in Egypt were is the U.S. invasión of Egypt to overthrow the military?” This is a straw man. I did not mention Egypt.

      You write: “You have no answers for these questions, do you Bob?” Since you asked, yes I do. While it is evident based on Obama’s and Hillary’s ties to the Muslim Brotherhood that Obama would prefer the Brotherhood to be in charge, to Obama’s handlers (and therefore to Obama himself) it doesn’t matter in the grand scheme if it’s the Brotherhood or the military who end up in charge. The U.S. controls them both. Egypt is a puppet state regardless of which group is in charge.

      Best wishes,
      Bob

        Dear Bob,
        OK, you don´t like my Egyptian example. I notice this website has few articles on Egypt since the Obama adminstration´s support of the military´s overthrow of the Muslim Brotherhood undercuts its entire paranoid Obama-is-a-jihadist mantra. But why hasn´t Obama intervened with U.S. forces in Syria to ensure that radical Islamist groups win? Why hasn´t he set up a no-fly zone? Why hasn´t he used U.S. airstrikes? Why hasn´t he used drones? Why hasn´t he put boots on the ground to ensure Assad´s defeat? You don´t have any answers for these questions either, do you? Well, I can tell you why. As radical Islamist groups have been gaining more ascendence in the Syrian Civlil War, the Obama administration has decided not to pull back from considering any of these things since it might help bring a jihadist government into power. But like everything in the Middle East this is not that simple either since the so-called non-Islamist government of Assad receives major support, arms, and terrorist aid from Islamist Iran, Hezbollah, and Hamas.
        As for Egypt being a total puppet state of the U.S., please! What a ridiculous exaggeration and simplification of the relatively limited U.S. power within the most important nation in the Middle East! If Egypt is a total puppet, then why doesn´t the U.S. tell them to implement a free market, Jeffersonian republic – and wala, they will do it. Because after all they are merely our puppet and will do anything and everything we say. What a juvenile view of a very complex, deeply divided, and complicated nation. If anything what has happened there recently has demonstrated the lack of U.S. power in Egypt as the U.S. cannot bring order and stability to one of its key allies in the region.
        Sincerely, mark

          Dear mark,

          You write: ” I notice this website has few articles on Egypt since the Obama adminstration´s support of the military´s overthrow of the Muslim Brotherhood undercuts its entire paranoid Obama-is-a-jihadist mantra.” Red herring. You misstate cause and effect.

          You write: “But why hasn´t Obama intervened with U.S. forces in Syria to ensure that radical Islamist groups win?” He has. There is a continuous gunrunning operation going on through Turkey and Libya. That’s what the Benghazi coverup is about.

          You write: “Why hasn´t he used U.S. airstrikes?” It is happening in fits and starts. http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/world/2013/07/13/israel-air-strike-syria/2515095/

          You write: “Why hasn´t he used drones?” How do you know he hasn’t? The MSM has not been honest about anything going on there.

          You write: “As for Egypt being a total puppet state of the U.S., please!” You are blind fool if you don’t see that the U.S. has controlled Egypt for years.

          You write: “why doesn´t the U.S. tell them to implement a free market, Jeffersonian republic – and wala, they will do it.” Why would the elites want a” free market Jeffersonian Republic” in Egypt when they don’t want one in the U.S.?

          You write: ” What a juvenile view of a very complex, deeply divided, and complicated nation.” Argument to ridicule. That you would make the statement demonstrates you are ignorant or a fool or both.

          Best wishes,
          Bob

            C´mon Bob, this whole website constantly employs argument to ridicule. Yourself included. Calling the Obama administration gangster government, an illegitimate regime, etc. I still hold that is juvenile to reduce complex relations between large, complicated, and divided states like Egypt and the United States to a 14 year old´s good vs. evil view of the world that he´s derived from watching too many Hollywood films and “profesional” wrestling. And why send such limited arms to the Syrian rebels when a more robust U.S. intervention would end the civil war and the Assad regime in a couple of weeks? Assad is in fact counterattacking, retaking cities, and gradually winning the war. Some U.S. intervention! Some Obama jihadist plot! The entire U.S. response has been no more than a pusillanimous joke. Where is your grand and powerful U.S. conspiracy here?

            Dear mark,

            You write: ” And why send such limited arms to the Syrian rebels when a more robust U.S. intervention would end the civil war and the Assad regime in a couple of weeks?” You first claimed Obama has not intervened. Now you say the U.S. has supplied “such limited arms.” I ask you, which is it? Has Obama not intervened in Syria? If he has, then do tell exactly what “limited arms” he has sent. Do, please, provide sources. I suspect this will be tough to do as the Administration and CIA is coming down hard on those involved in the gun running operation in order to ensure their silence. http://thelead.blogs.cnn.com/2013/08/01/exclusive-dozens-of-cia-operatives-on-the-ground-during-benghazi-attack/

            Best wishes,

    al-Qaida is not on the run. Under Obama, clearly, America is on the run. We’re the ones closing embassies and getting out of town.

    Mr. Livingston, as mark stated; you’re just being paranoid! I don’t think there’s any collusion between Mr. Hussein-Barrack and his brothers. No, not at all!

    What’s this? Obama’s Congress Opens With Muslim Imam’s Prayer To Allah? One nation under Allah? I guess we will be spared all the rhetoric from the left about separation of “church and state”? I mean, this is Islam we’re talking about, not Christianity; you know, the religion of the Taliban, Hezbollah, Hamas and Al-Queada…?

    “The sweetest sound I know is the Muslim call to prayer” – Barack Hussein Obama.

    On July 31, 2013, Imam Talib Shareef of Masjid Muhammad in Washington, D.C., opened a session of the United States Congress with a prayer on Capitol Hill. This is the America that Obama has been working so hard to create…?

    This is the mission statement of the mosque where Talib Shareef is from:

    “To be a model, productive, involved Islamic community, noticeably contributing to the growth, solutions, and betterment of D.C. and the National Capitol Region, with establishments in religion, education and training, health and human services, housing for general and senior member care, neighborhood excellence, etc., embracive of all people, as a community that G-d established, exemplifying the universal teachings and life example of Prophet Mohammed (SAW), as taught by Imam W. Deen Mohammed (RA).”

    Embracive of all people, as a community that (G-d established…?), exemplifying the universal teachings and life example of Prophet Mohammed (SAW)…? Islamic theocracy anyone?
