Is Leon Panetta Actually Moamar Qadafi?

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2012/03/15


No, he’s not.

I wanted to make that crystal clear, but there’s a definite reason why I asked the question. Allahpundit quotes the New York Times regarding an incident involving the Obama Administration and the US Military. Actually, it’s about the Obama Administration’s Secretary of Defense and the US Military. More accurately, it’s about the Obama Administration’s Secretary of Defense (the guy in charge of all of the US Military) and the US Military in Afghanistan.

The Obama Administration was so fearful of their own Secretary of Defense’s life, surrounded by US Military personnel with weapons that the US Military was forced to “lay down their weapons” before being forced to listen to the Obama Administration’s own Secretary of Defense! Never in my life have I ever heard of a SecDef needing to disarm the Military before being able to appear before the Military, for fear of his life!

It is laughable that the Obama Administration is so fearful of the US Military that the Obama Administration has to disarm the US Military before speaking in front of it. It also shows the absolute disdain for the US Military that the Obama Administration has.

The connection with Moamar Qadafi? (And why he was always a Colonel and never promoted himself to General or Field Marshall is beyond me.) Moamar Qadafi was so fearful of a military coup (like the one he used to gain power) that he, in essence (or possibly in actuality) disbanded the Libyan military and replaced them with mercenaries who were not tied to Libya but were tied to the Qadafi paycheck. And the Obama Administration is so fearful of the US Military that it has to disarm them before their boss can talk to them.

What a pitiful picture that paints!

    I’ve heard rumors that this isn’t a Panetta quirk– other admin officials on official business flights have insisted on having their secret service armed and on alert while the military members on the flight were specifically disarmed. Usually, the specially cleared crew takes over for the Secret Service agents until they get near landing.

    Just our guys, not anyone else.

    Does the Secret Service provide the protection for cabinet secretaries?

    I don’t know the answer to that, but the Secret Service is notoriously anal about things; that’s what they are paid to do. And no one would have said anything if all of the soldiers were required to disarm had it been President Obama instead of Secretary Panetta.

    In the case of the rumors I heard, it was unusual enough to be commented on. It wasn’t their first go-around with the Secret Service, and both they and the guys who had to stand there, on duty, were quite upset in the change in standard ops.

    Yes :-)

  5. This is a definite case of the Obama Administration fearing the US Military more than the terrorists in the area where the Cabinet official would be. And for the record, the Taliban (or al Qaeda) definitely did try to use a car bomb to assassinate Panetta, but failed. The US Military? Nope, they didn’t try to assassinate him.

    But Obama made certain the US Military was very much less capable of defending his SecDef, due to Obama’s paranoia.

    no one would have said anything if all of the soldiers were required to disarm had it been President Obama instead of Secretary Panetta.

    To quote Rugs Runny, “him don’t know me so well, do him?”

  7. You’re in a war zone. You’re the CIC of the US Military. In a war zone. Where the US Military is the line of defense. You force the defense to lay down their weapons, making you more vulnerable to assassination because you are more fearful of the US Military than Mohammedan terrorists. And I’m not going to say anything about that? Ha! The squishes Bush wouldn’t have done such a thing! Reagan wouldn’t have done such a thing! The Socialism-loving FDR wouldn’t have done such a thing!

    But Obama, the most evil, most anti-American President the US has ever had, would most definitely do such a thing!!!!
