Odds stacked against Hagel

January 4, 2013

(Carl)Here’s retiring Senator Joe Lieberman (I-Ct) talking about Chuck Hagel’s chances of becoming Secretary of Defense.
Let’s go to the videotape.
BWAHAHAHAHAHA! We all know Obama never wanted those sanctions anyway!

(Log Cabin Republicans also oppose Chuck Hagel)“Chuck Hagel: Wrong on gay rights. Wrong on Iran. Wrong on Israel,” the Log Cabin Republican ad says. “Tell President Obama that Chuck Hagel is wrong for Defense Secretary.”
The ad also reflects criticism that Hagel is not a big enough supporter of Israel, and is not tough enough on Iran.


Lee Whitnum, a Jew hating Democrat candidate for Joe Lieberman’s Senate seat

April 8, 2012
(A Purported 20-month romance
with John Kerry

(Caroline Glick) We should remember that in the Democrat primary in 2006, Lieberman’s rival Ned Lamont heavily employed anti-Jewish innuendos, blaming neoconservatives, (that is, Jews), for the war in Iraq. His backers were unabashed in their use of anti-Jewish slurs against Lieberman and his family.
And Lamont WON the primary. And the Democrat Party refused to back Lieberman in the primary.
Obviously, Lee Whitnum the Jew hater featured below decided it makes sense to use her Jew hatred as a campaign asset.


Dan Lungren questions Paul Stockton – Assistant Defense Secretary for Homeland Defense: Are we at war with violent Islamist extremism?

Watch the verbal acrobatics. Let’s go to the videotape.

(Carl) On Wednesday, Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.) and Sen. Joseph Lieberman (I-Conn.) opened a hearing to examine the emerging threat to the military from homegrown terrorists within the U.S. and named the armed services as the “most sought-after” target for radical Islamist extremist groups.
Rep. Dan Lungren (R.-Calif.) asked Paul Stockton, assistant defense secretary for homeland defense, whether “we are at war with violent Islamist extremism.”

FBI Training Material Says ‘Mainstream’ Muslims Are Mostly Terrorist Sympathizers

September 17, 2011

Spencer Ackerman broke a story yesterday on the anti-Muslim training materials the FBI used to train intelligence units. According to the FBI, the agency has pulled the training.

(Daily Kos) is quite amusing. Dhimmi Joe Lieberman breaks out his liberal card and condemns the FBI and the Daily Kos has a hard time praising him:

In what is likely the most admirable statement ever made or ever to be made by Sen. Joe Lieberman, chairman of the Senate Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee, he blasted the FBI.

;^) LOLZ here is Joe Lieberman’s quote. Hard to believe that this guy made Michael Moore’s shit list. Just goes to show there is no appeasing these people

“There is no room in America for the lies, propagated by al-Qaida, that the U.S. is at war with Islam, or the lie propagated by others that all Muslims support terrorism,” Sen. Joe Lieberman, the chairman of the Senate Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee, told Danger Room.

The lesson here is that trying to appease the Muslim so called Liberal agenda is just not working. There is no appeasing those who hate your guts Joe.

Documents recently leaked to Wired‘s Spencer Ackerman show that the FBI does not offer its counterterrorism agents a very nuanced take on Islam. The briefings, which come from the organization’s Quantico, Virginia, training grounds, include an illustrated chart showing a direct relationship between a Muslim’s devoutness and his potential for violence, along with musings such as this: “There may not be a ‘radical’ threat as much as it is simply a normal assertion of the orthodox ideology … The strategic themes animating these Islamic values are not fringe; they are main stream.”Why did FBI whistleblowers leak the documents? Wired reports they were concerned that:

Focusing on the religious behavior of American citizens instead of proven indicators of criminal activity like stockpiling guns or using shady financing makes it more likely that the FBI will miss the real warning signs of terrorism. And depicting Islam as inseparable from political violence is exactly the narrative al-Qaida spins — as is the related idea that America and Islam are necessarily in conflict.

Many of the documents obtained by Wired — including a graph that suggests devout Jews and Christians have mellowed out on the violence over the centuries while Muslims are just as violent as they were in the year 622 — were authored by FBI intelligence analyst William Gawthrop. In 2006, before he joined the Bureau, he told birther enthusiast site WorldNetDaily that “Muhammad’s mindset is a source for terrorism.”
The FBI’s response: “The presentation in question was a rudimentary version used for a limited time that has since been replaced.”

The FBI on Thursday said it had stopped a training session that called the Prophet Muhammad a “cult leader,” said mainstream Muslims were likely to support violent extremism and described the Islamic principal of charity as a “funding mechanism for combat.”
The content of the training session set off a wave of concern among Muslims across the nation who had been trying to help authorities battle homegrown terrorism.
An FBI spokesman confirmed on Thursday that the agency did host one training session six months ago that described Muslims as more likely to be violent as they increased in devotion to their faith. Slides from the training session, confirmed as accurate by the FBI and posted online by Wired magazine, show a graph illustrating how followers of other Abrahamic faiths have become more nonviolent since their inceptions, but Muslims have not.[…]
Asked why it was included in the training in the first place, FBI spokesman Allen said it was part of the plan for the two-week course.
“The instructor who conducted that training block no longer provides training on behalf of the FBI,” the agency said in a statement. “Policy changes have been under way to better ensure that all training is consistent with FBI standards. These changes will help develop appropriate training content for new agent training and continuing education for all employees, as well as introduce a robust consultative element from experts outside the FBI.”

Joe Lieberman: Obama must make clear that he will stop Iran

October 1, 2010

Senator Joe Lieberman (I-Ct) told the Council on Foreign Relations on Wednesday that President Obama must make it clear that the United States will stop Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons.

“Some have suggested that we should simply learn to live with a nuclear Iran. In my judgment, that would be a grave mistake. And as one Arab leader I recently spoke with pointed out, how could anyone count on the United States to go to war to defend them against a nuclear-armed Iran, if we were unwilling to go to war to prevent a nuclear-armed Iran? Simply put, having tried and failed to stop Iran’s nuclear breakout, our country will be a poor position to contain its consequences.”
“It would also be a failure of U.S. leadership if this situation reaches the point where the Israelis decide to attempt a unilateral strike. If military action must come, the United States is in the strongest position to confront Iran and manage the regional consequences. This is not a responsibility we should outsource. We can and should coordinate with our many allies who share our interest in stopping a nuclear Iran, but we cannot delegate our global responsibilities to them.”
“The single most important test of American power in the Middle East today is whether we succeed or fail in stopping Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons capability, and how we fare on that test will surely affect our standing in the rest of the world.”
“It is time to retire our ambiguous mantra about all options remaining on the table. Our message to our friends and enemies in the region needs to become clearer: namely, that we will prevent Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapons capability — by peaceful means if we possibly can, but with military force if we absolutely must.”
