Krauthamer: Bombs, Not Hashtags!


It is not often that we agree with neocon scribe Charles Krauthamer, especially in RPI's "Neocon Watch" column. In fact we are ashamed. But we have to admit he has a point. The Obama Administration's approach to diplomacy and international affairs is rapidly devolving into infantile territory, with selfieshashtags, and Tweets where once adults dared to tread. 

It is said the people get the government they deserve, and perhaps hashtags are the most appropriate way to explain complicated geopolitical matters to the masses who prefer news pre-digested by Rachel Maddow or Bill O'Reilly. Mencken (that meanie) once wrote, "Nobody ever went broke underestimating the intelligence of the American public."

Libyan Leaders Give McCain Award, Vote in Sharia Law

Senator John McCain is in Libya, where he was "honored" to receive an award from the Libyan military Chief of Staff. McCain was, of course, a prime cheerleader for the 2011 US attack on Libya which has resulted in the ascent to power of various al-Qaeda linked groups who along with murderous militias further terrorize the decimated country.

McCain's Moderates Join Al-Qaeda

Senator John McCain was just sure he could pick moderates in Syria worth supporting. To prove his point he made a trip to Syria this spring to demonstrate how much the insurgents were just like us, struggling for democracy and equal rights for all.

But his trip was organized by the Syria Emergency Task Force's Mouaz Moustafa, who not long ago headed up the Libyan Council of North America. Both organizations are partly funded by the US State Department through a mirrored wilderness of NGO cutouts. But both have close ties to extremists fighting in each country. (In Libya, for example, Mustafa was with the people who killed US ambassador Stevens.) In McCain's case, the "moderates" he met and was so attracted to in Syria tunred out to be kidnappers and thugs.

Beating the Benghazi Horse

Jennifer Rubin, one of Washington Post’s neoconservative gate-keepers, is still trying to obfuscate the real issue behind what happened in Benghazi in 2011. Over the weekend, Rubin wrote:

“The biggest scandal regarding Benghazi may be that the president was not at the helm on 9-11-2011 and was not directing the response to an attack.”

Yet, one must look beyond the superficial to locate the heart of what happened in Benghazi.

As Ron Paul pointed out: "there was little extremism in Libya before the US attack on that country in 2011."

Is that not an important piece to the story?
