Torture By Ensure And Obama’s Terrorism Support
April 30, 2012 7 Comments
The Obama campaign is running around alleging that Mitt Romney wouldn’t have pulled the trigger and ordered the killing of Osama bin Laden. Romney may be many things but he isn’t Bill Clinton. In 2007 he made it pretty clear that he would in fact take out Osama, he just wouldn’t announce where or when. That seems like a pretty prudent response for a candidate in 2007. The notion that Obama is the only guy who would have pulled the trigger is laughable. Especially so when he spent all of the 2008 campaign ridiculing the Bush administration for using so-called torture in the form of water boarding. It happened to be water boarding that resulting in the information that led Obama to bin Laden’s lair.
The left has forever attacked the CIA for water boarding and other techniques used against terrorists. Leslie Stahl, for example, was shocked to find out that the CIA used the dietary supplement Ensure as a “dietary manipulation” against terrorists. Stahl declared the use of Ensure against imprisoned terrorists “Orwellian.” I suppose it’s Orwellian when doctors proscribe Ensure to their patients who need extra vitamins and other nutrients. This is the fantasy land the left lives in when it comes to terrorism. It’s the same fantasy land that Obama lived in before he became President. From all accounts, Ensure is still on the Guantanamo menu.
When Obama took office he declared that the War on Terror would be called an “overseas contingency operation.” Apparently that term didn’t take because earlier this month the administration announced the War on Terror was over. Never mind that al Qaeda still exists and the US has a top 10 list out on them. Never mind that other terrorist organizations are threatening the United States, including the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas. Of course, those are Obama approved terrorist organizations. The Brotherhood has been aided by the Obama administration, particularly in Egypt. This is the same Muslim Brotherhood that to this day wants to wipe Israel off the face of the Earth. Mind you the Arab Spring that has handed power to the Muslim Brotherhood was aided by Obama pal George Soros.
This has been the problem with Obama all along. Some terrorists are okay, others are to be dealt with. Obama deserves credit for pulling the trigger on the bin Laden operation. But it needs to be pointed out that he has hurt the American position regarding terrorism all over the world with his support for the Muslim Brotherhood. This is a group that within the next generation will engage in major acts of terrorism, if not start a regional or global war. These guys aren’t kidding around when they say they want to destroy Israel. Obama helped put them in power and he continues to fund Egypt’s military which of course further aids the Brotherhood’s terrorist objectives.
What Romney does about all this is anyone’s guess. We know the left isn’t much interested in tackling terrorism, especially when certain terrorist groups further the left’s own political causes. It’s likely that Romney wouldn’t have a problem with the terrorist Ensure diet, unlike the maniacs at CBS. Still, terrorism is a major international matter. It’s one that Romney hasn’t been asked much about because the economy is clearly the number one issue. Romney would have pulled the trigger on Osama, but then what? Will he support the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas like Obama has? Will he call out Obama for supporting these terrorist organizations? That remains to be seen.
