Obama Does “Victory” Laps, But Refuses to Halt Proceedings Against CIA Interogators

May 7, 2011 at 3:37 PM 3 comments

Just like a hypocrite, isn’t it?  It is clear that the intel that ultimately led us to bin Laden’s hideout was gained because of the waterboarding technique used against three captured terrorist suspects a number of years ago (at least three, prior to the beginning of Mr. Obama’s term as president).  Yet, when push comes to shove and even though he said he would not pursue charges against the CIA operatives involved in the waterboarding technique, he now says he will not ask the DOJ to stop their pursuit.

While Mr. Obama has spent the past few days doing victory laps and turning 306s in the parking lot, the CIA operatives who used the waterboarding techniqes against the terrorists have been charged or harassed by the “Justice” Department officials and interestingly enough, many of those individuals were part of the Bush administration.

Back in 2009, Mr. Obama promised that he was not going to go after the CIA operatives who were involved in waterboarding techniques and the Justice Department stated that they would provide legal representation in case anyone else wanted to go after them. [1]

However, numerous CIA employees were subjected to harassment by Eric Holder’s DOJ.  “John Yoo and Jay Bybee were put through hell on charges that they sanctioned “enhanced interrogation” tactics. Eric Holder issued a 261 page report claiming that DOJ attorney John Yoo  committed “intentional professional misconduct,” when he wrote an opinion for Bush about “enhanced interrogation” techniques,” basically charging that Yoo lied when giving advice to G.W. The DOJ recommended disciplinary action against Yoo from the Pennsylvania Bar in 2009. DOJ attorney David Margolis countermanded the recommended referral in January 2010 – saying he did not find “professional misconduct.”

“From November 2001 to March 2003, attorney Jay Bybee served as Assistant Attorney General for the Office of Legal Counsel (OLC) in the DOJ. Bybee was asked by the CIA if they could legally, aggressively interrogate high-ranking al-Qaeda members captured outside of the U.S. – attempting to have a definition of the term “torture” in  18 U.S.C.Source.

“Bybee signed that legal memorandum which defined “enhanced interrogation techniques” in ways that are regarded as torture by the Obama Justice Department…Again the DOJ went after Bybee as they have Yoo. Bybee was acquitted and was later confirmed via Bush’s nomination to the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals. Both men are facing war crimes charges in Spain and other European countries. BUT the DOJ is likely still unhappy, but because of these two men, Osama bin Laden is dead.” [2]

Recently, Debra Burlingame approached Mr. Obama at the 9/11 event in which he laid a wreath.  She asked him that since the CIA operatives three years ago had really gotten the information (through waterboarding) that ultimately led to the discovery of bin Laden, would he be willing to offer his opinion to Eric Holder to stop any legal proceedings against those operatives.

Mr. Obama’s response was a curt, “No, I won’t,” and then walked away.  Check out the video to hear it in Burlingame’s own words:

The reality is that Mr. Obama is playing his own political game and he really plays by his own rules.  He doesn’t care about the U.S. Constitution and wants to do only what is in his best interests.

Recently, it has also been reported that Disclosure Act, which did not pass Congress, will be signed into law by Mr. Obama himself, using the “executive order” fiat.  For those unaware of what the Disclosure Act is all about, here is a quote that should shine some light on the subject:

[T]he order would require all companies that sign contracts with the federal government to report on the personal political activities of their officers and directors.

The White House claims the EO would make the federal government more transparent. But a quick look at who Obama chose to exempt from the EO shows this is false: unions that sign collective bargaining contracts with the federal government would be exempt from the “disclosure” requirements. The clear intent of this bill is to suppress speech and punish Obama’s enemies.

According to a Congressional Research Service review of Executive Orders over the last 40 years, no White House has ever issued an EO dealing with campaign finance. Signing the DISCLOSE Act EO would be an unprecedented power grab by Obama. Quote Via: The Washington Examiner. I  (emphasis added) [3]

The simple reality seems to be that Mr. Obama sees himself as a dictator.  If others in government will not make his wishes come true, he’ll find a way to do it without their help.  The idea that a president of the United States believes that Congress is neither a help or hindrance to him is nothing short of demagoguery, yet most seem perfectly fine with this attitude he possesses!

My question is…when will Mr. Obama be impeached because these are clearly impeachable offenses.  The left believes that if they continue to conjure up false accusations of racism, then people will simply drop it, but that is not the way our Constitution works!

We have three branches of government that act as checks and balances yet Mr. Obama appears to not notice the other branches, unless of course they agree with him.  A Federal Judge has ruled against Obamacare, but the White House was quick to say they were moving ahead with it anyway.  Can you imagine if you or I did that with something?  We’d be hauled into jail.

There is a problem with the man in the White House and it has to do with the fact that he is breaking the law and seemingly getting away with it.  We need someone in Congress who would be willing to stand up against Mr. Obama’s dictatorial posture and help him understand that he is not above the law.

Hopefully it will happen sooner than later!

    Christians are not advocates of sadism. Torture is merely a way to save lives. The wicked refuse to release information that will save the lives of many. We must torture him to be able to save lives. In some situations, torture can become inhumane if it does not have a good enough goal or if the person being tortured is innocent.
    Unlike most of my fellow Christians, this is what I believe. When Moses killed the Egyptian overseer, its purpose was to save lives. He prevented evil. Vengeace is God’s. It is up to us to do what we can to prevent Satan from doing his dirty work. Torture to save lives I think is justified.

    If waterboarding done three years ago yielded the intelligence to find Osama, why didn’t the Bush administration find him?

    Why did Bush say years ago that he “never thinks about” Osama and doesn’t know where he is and wasn’t concerned about him?

    Why is David Margolis still at the DOJ? he is probably behind the continued prosecution of Don Siegelman.

    Why do Christians support torture?

      Hi Helen,

      The intelligence that EVENTUALLY led to the ULTIMATE discovery of bin Laden STARTED with the suspects captured after 9/11. The CIA operatives did not take what they learned and immediately find bin Laden. Had that been the case, they would have found him during Bush’s term as president. It DID however, give them their first important clues as to his whereabouts. I’m sure you’ll recall that many news reports have stated that this was an ongoing investigation that took at least three years (which of course is BEFORE Mr. Obama as president even stepped into the picture). Even Mr. Obama thanked Mr. Bush (to an extent) for his work in the capture of bin Laden.

      Why did Bush say “he never thinks about” Osama? I would think it would better to ask Bush, don’t you? It could have been for any number of reasons including the fact that he KNEW people more qualified than he were diligently looking to find bin Laden. He did not need to be concerned about it.

      With the way Mr. Obama is busy celebrating this entire event, you would think he actually masterminded it. Meanwhile, parts of our country are being devastated by flooding, tornadoes and all the rest, but Mr. Obama has not finished his victory laps where bin Laden is concerned. In some ways, I think it’s hilarious that Mr. Obama is busy taking the credit for all of this and in point of fact, this is also actually the first time he has been to Ground Zero since 2008, as president of the United States.

      Why is Margolis at the DOJ? I don’t know. What I DO know is that Eric Holder has been deliberately going after many within Bush’s Administration, and since Holder is the AG, then obviously the buck stops with him, so even IF Margolis is the one – as you say – who is going after Siegelman and others, how would it be possible for him to do that without Holder’s knowledge or tacit approval? Though it is unclear why his favored response to officials on Capital Hill this week was “I don’t know.”

      In 2009, both Mr. Obama and Holder indicated they would NOT prosecute these individuals and Holder even stated he would provide legal representation for the men if someone else came after them. What occurred to change Obama’s/Holder’s minds? Could it be the same thing that caused Mr. Obama to change his mind about raising taxes? First Obamacare, just recently, he said he was considering raising taxes, and now he is floating the idea of taxing people based on how miles they drive. Yet, during his campaign he said on any number of occasions “let me be clear. I will NOT raise taxes.”

      Why isn’t Mr. Obama spending less and doing whatever else he can to improve our economy? Why are the liberal media rags seemingly in cahoots with him when they report on the job “growth” we’ve recently experienced? They forget that many of those jobs are actually temporary in nature. In the long run, they do nothing to help our economy.

      What is Mr. Obama doing to reduce gasoline prices? Does he think that if there is a tax based on miles driven, then people will drive LESS therefore spend LESS on gas? Instead, he gives South America billions to do their own offshore drilling, he gives almost a billion to Gaza and he is spending millions on rebuilding mosques throughout the world, along with any number of other pet projects, none of which help the people of America or our economy.

      His answer? Try to find a way to provide blanket amnesty to over 20 million illegal aliens in this country, without going through Congress. Why? So they will register and vote Democrat.

      Christians supporting torture? I never said I supported torture. I never even said I supported WATERBOARDING. My entire post was related to Mr. Obama’s hypocrisy. While he is busy doing victory laps over the capture of bin Laden, he is also busy doing nothing to get the DOJ off the back of those Holder wants to prosecute for using enhanced interrogation techniques.

      How did you get out of that whole blog that I (or Christians in general) support torture? Funny how leftheads think. They seem to set reason and logic aside because they are too busy trying to find ways to castigate those who do not agree with them.
