Eric Holder played the protector of Islam during questioning by Rep. Lamar Smith of the House Judiciary Committee. Holder not only refuses to admit that Islam and its’ anti-western ideology is behind the several recent attacks on the US. He goes one step further and refuses to concede that “radical Islam” is behind the attacks.
I know it isn’t ignorance or lack of CIA or FBI intelligence. It’s not lack of keeping track of MSNBC, CNN, or Huffington Post or even FOX news. There is something else going on.
Here are several or a combination of other possibilities.
- Islamist have effectively intimidated the US, and given that our military and economy are spread so thin, we are doing everything in our power, however unreasonable and untruthful it might be, to avoid “insulting” or provoking further attacks. That strategy doesn’t seem to be working. What do you think?
- The US has built up so many alliances with Islamic interests, particularly with regard to oil resources, that we are in no position to tick them off. So our leaders believe it is in our nation’s best interest to avoid discussing the truth of the attacks and the truth of the Islamic ideology, however obvious that truth may be.
- Here’s one hot off the press: Obama has made secret deals with the Iranian mullahcracy to facilitate the weakening of both the USA and Israel, even the planned destruction of Israel, in exchange for promises from Iran and now the Turkish leadership that ‘all they want’ – à la Munich, 1938 – is their individual MidEast Sudentenland, each of them.
Turkey and Iran have decided to split the ME between them – East and West. Turkey will recreate a new Sunni-controlled Ottoman Empire, and Iran will be allowed its own ‘greater Iran’ hegemony…i.e. a new Shiite Caliphate stretching beyond its current borders.
Obama, who is a Muslim, agrees with this plan and has pledged to help throw Israel – along with all American national security interests – to the wolves.
One or more of the above scenarios is likely to have some truth behind it. None are a pleasant thought.
