Hillary Rodham Herp-de-derp

Mon dieu, it looks like Napoleon was right: the Benghazi hearings are turning up lots of incompetence and absolutely no plot ideas for an interesting, complicated spy novel.

I haven’t followed the hearings, I’ve been getting my information in chunklets from all around the web. I should have kept track of where exactly so I could link them in this post, but I didn’t. That’s why I regard myself not so much as a journalist but more of a mouthy old cow with a full, legal copy of Photoshop.

Anyway, it looks like Stevens was in Benghazi at Hillary’s explicit request because she intended to build an enduring diplomat presence in that city. And she deliberately turned down requests for more security there because she thought muscling up would look bad to the locals. Foamy Muslim nutburgers respond so well to displays of goodwill and military weakness, don’tcha know.

As to why requests for backup on the night of the attack were turned down…well, I don’t think we’ve gotten to the bottom of it. But it’s a good bet she probably still thought the situation could be salvaged if we didn’t escalate it by…no, geez, that is so retarded.

And the stupid video story? Well, if the whole thing blew up over a spontaneous protest, nobody (Hillary) could be blamed for not seeing in coming and preparing. Barack was cool with that (okay, this is me talking) because if he has a choice between blaming a bad thing on a Muslim and blaming it on America’s founding principles, the Land of the Free is going to lose every damn time.

I’m coming around to the idea these bozos really, genuinely think the Arab Spring is a force for good, and it loves the Obama Administration.

Right. Let’s talk about something more cheerful, like Death. Here. Tomorrow. Six sharp Weasel Blog Time. Dead Pool Round Fifty.

Possible theory is that everyone in the White House and State Dept. thought that the fighting would be over soon and everyone would be dead. Then the fighting continued. Then the CIA contractors got involved. Then the fighting kept on continuing.

It’s like realizing at 1am in the morning you want something to snack on but you don’t want to get out of bed. More time passes but the desire doesn’t go away. Every minute you don’t get out of bed means you are that much more invested in not getting up and getting that damn snack. Sooner or later it’s daylight out or you’re up and eating. But having invested so heavily into one branch of the decision tree means changing becomes harder and harder.

Either that or it was a complete set up from the get go to get Stevens killed and set up a Tonkin Gulf style situation for American troops on the ground.

Needless to say I agree(I was the one who floated if after all). I hope you don’t mind if I expand my reasoning of what’s actually motivating them.

As I mentioned before, it’s incompetence, but I think it’s a very special brand of it, ideologically motivated incompetence. They’re blind because they see the world as an ought and not as the world really is.

So for example, the Arab Spring. Here I believe that the typical leftist in power sees an oppressed class — Arabs — finally throwing off their evil oppressors — the US backed strong men. The fact they’re strong men without any socialist leanings is bad in their eyes. The fact that they’re backed by the United States, the great Satan- erm oppressor, only makes them worse.

To take another example of a group that liked the Arab Spring to contrast, Neocons. They believed in it because Neocons seem to believe that democracy always has positive results — essentially they think democracy always ends up leading to economic, civil, and political freedom.

I do have a few more thoughts on the subject, mainly concerning the individual pathologies of Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, but I’ll hold back to see if my exposition holds any water with my fellow commenters.

Hilary’s friends had strong ties to the group that raided that compound. They even funded that group.

When you captured one of their group for ‘holding Q&A’ – which means death – they came in and took him.

It is well known what happens to people in US hands.

Well yes, that’s the thing. They weren’t malicious here, just lousy at their jobs, something we’ve long been saying. Like Khan mentions they are not just incompetent but blindly wedded to an ideology that cannot survive real world contact, and it continuously lets them down. Yet like the true zealot, that’s never evidence they might be wrong, but instead proof that they haven’t been given enough power and those horrible people before them messed things up so long its just going to take longer.

And when it blows up in their face, they are protected and coddled and never criticized except by people who the elites have decided don’t count. And besides, even if they were wrong in this instance, well the alternative of the other side winning is so much worse than any price is acceptable to pay to stop them from winning, be it the truth, honor, liberty, and even some idiot film maker that makes lousy movies. So a few lives are lost, people die. What’s important is that Republicans never get power back.

Haha, democracy! So, one batty strong-man is supplanted by a rather larger group of slightly less sane (& (more importantly) manipulable) foamers. Who are supported by a large (but perhaps not “absolute majority” large), dim-witted group of religious fanatics. Who are generally backed (in that sense of “I’m sure they mean well”) by the vast majority who are observant believers but mostly peaceful (they only dance in the streets when hundreds or thousands of Americans are murdered, not mere dozens or tens).

How democratic.

My take is they didn’t want al killda’s ugly head to rear up since oblowme said their threat was minimal. So here comes a not so minimal little terrorist act and he needs to hide it before the big election. Malicious? Youbetcha.

The fact they’re strong men without any socialist leanings is bad in their eyes.

Except that the first target of the Arab Spring was Gaddafi, venomously anti-U.S. and a professed socialist. (His regime was the “Great Socialist People’s Libyan Arab Jamahiriya”, and he was a BFF of Hugo Chavez.)

Mubarak was U.S.-backed, and privatized some state-owned enterprises, but this was more a way to enrich his family and cronies than any opposition to socialism.

Bashir Assad is as anti-American as Gaddafi, and ruled Syria through the “Arab Socialist Ba’ath Party”.

The replacements may be even worse in some respects (especially in Egypt), but the old regimes were vile.

Its hard not to get a little realpolitik about “Arab Spring” events. Yes, the dictators ousted were scum, but some of them were at least somewhat friendly scum. Which is worse: a dictator who oppresses his people… but is friendly with the west – or – a dictator who oppresses his people… but is hostile to the west?

This is what I think happened:

The attack on the embassy was reported to Washington. The report went to the White House, along with the suggestion of sending the “quick reaction force”. Obama called up Valerie Jarrett. She dismissed the report of actual military assault on the compound as hysterical exaggeration. Then she told him not to send troops: “This will blow over by tomorrow. Do you want headlines about Americans massacring protestors for throwing rocks and bottles at the embassy?” And so Obama did nothing.

I base this on the reports that Jarrett vetoed multiple operations to get Osama before Obama finally went through with one.

God Hillary looks bad – and I’m not talking about the most excellent photoshop heading this post. Great job Stoaty! But seriously she has gone into the toilet looks-wise. Al Gore also looks like shit. They suck, bad.

Benghazi? Just straight-up stupid-shit incompetence. Absolutely impeachable, this-guy-seriously-needs-to-no-longer-hold-office kind of incompetence; but, he should not be removed from office. He should be investigated, hassled, and publicly heckled mercilessly until his term is up. It’s the American way.

Well, the eyes are heavily ‘shopped, of course. But I did use some burn and dodge to emphasize wrinklage that was already there, and a bit of mild warp in a couple of places to lean on unflattering characteristics that are really there. Sometimes less is more with ugly P’shops.

Anyhow, you know what? The US *always* back the wrong guy in any Middle East conflict…because they’re all the wrong guy. Every one of the bastards. Doesn’t matter which side you come down on, it’ll turn out badly.
