In four days it will be September 11th.  The country will be holding all the standard ceremonies of commemoration for the anniversary of the worst attack on American soil and we will all observe the “moment of silence” at 8;46am.  The flags will be raised, the names read, and the stories of bravery and survival told and retold as they have been every year for the last 13 years.

But, there are stories that will not be told.

Tyrone Woods will never speak again of where he was on that day in 2001.  Neither will Glen Doherty.  Or Sean Smith.  Or Ambassador Chris Stevens.

Instead, we now tell their stories- the stories of where they were and what did- and didn’t happen- on September 11th, 2012.  We’ll tell their stories because they are no longer here to do so and to NOT tell and retell those stories would be to ignore and diminish what happened to them.  We don’t have to do that. We don’t have to ignore what happened that night in Benghazi because, well, the Obama Administration has done such a fine job of doing it for us.  We don’t have to diminish the situation they were in because, as Hillary Clinton so eloquently put it, “What does it matter?”.

What does it matter?

What does it matter if some 18-year-old thug is shot in self-defense by a cop after strong-arm robbery?  Apparently, it matters enough to warrant a probe of the police department in question by the Justice Department.

What does it matter if a handful of Hollywood film whores have their naked pictures jacked by hackers on their iPhones?  Apparently, it matters enough to involve the FBI for the perpetrators of this most heinous cyber crime.

So, I’ll ask you again: what does it matter that a few brave men lost their lives in a firefight on the rooftop in Benghazi while they desperately awaited backup?

It matters freakin’ plenty!

It matters because it illustrates just exactly WHO and WHAT this Administration panders to the most.  It matters because it proves that there are more liars and sociopaths populating Washington DC than we can even BEGIN to imagine.  It matters because it shows WITHOUT QUESTION where Obama’s true interests lie.  And it matters, most of all, because NONE of them had to die- not one.  It matters because, if left alone, we will NEVER know the Truth.  And that is the one thing that lies between Freedom and Tyranny.

So, while you’re at work on the 11th or at your kid’s school program, remember those four names when all the others are being read, victims of September 11th as well. Make sure you remember those four names the next time the President makes a speech about having a firm grip on the war on terror.  Make sure you remember those four names if and when you find yourself in a polling booth some November.  And make sure you remember those four names when our Government assures you all it will ever give you is the Truth.

…apparently, pussies bail. With the situation in the Ukraine going from bad to worse with every passing hour, and the US potentially being on the hook for material support due to the Budapest Accord (.us/177483-budapest-memorandum-treaty-signed-in-1994-may-commit-u-s-britain-to-defend-ukraine/)  (what the hell was Clinton thinking?), our National Security team met to discuss the gory details.  However, Obama was not in attendance:

Daniel Halper The Weekly Standard

3/1/2014

A White House official emailed some reporters to say that President Obama’s team met today to discuss the ongoing situation on Ukraine. It appears President Obama did not attend. “The President’s national security team met today to receive an update on the situation in Ukraine and discuss potential policy options. We will provide further updates later this afternoon,” reads the full statement. According to Time magazine’s Zeke Miller, Obama skipped the meeting. “Obama did not attend the meeting, but WH official says he has been briefed by Susan Rice and his national security team,” says Miller. Read more at The Weekly Standard.”

(thank you Weekly Standard)

Not in attendance.

Hmmm.

So…where was he?

Maybe he was playing golf.

Or jogging around the White House with Uncle Joe.joe and pbo

Or maybe napping because of all that golf and jogging. napping

Regardless, he didn’t seem to have time to be bothered with the Ukraine. Much like he didn’t seem to have time to be bothered with Benghazi.  But, never fear: just like Benghazi, he’s got the lovely, talented and gosh darn honest Susan Rice, his National Security Advisor, the same Susan Rice who provided such outstanding intel the night Christopher Stephens and 3 others, including two Navy SEALs were violently murdered in Libya.  I’m sure she briefed him on the meeting with the utmost clarity and integrity.  I have no worries regarding the Ukraine knowing that we have top-notch leadership at the helm.

Don’t you sleep better at night?

Obviously, the fact that the Sixth Fleet being on the way to the Black Sea must be of no consequence (http://beforeitsnews.com/global-unrest/2014/03/us-sixth-fleet-races-towards-black-sea-nato-troops-land-in-ukraine-2458006.html) since Obama chose to skip the meeting.  I mean, after all, they were sorta already there since they were providing security for the Sochi Olympics.

Sorta already there…..

Does anyone else find that to be a remarkable coincidence or is it just me?

Here’s my prediction for the Ukraine, a prediction that was actually offered by a source within the Intel community:  the Ukraine will be split, much like Germany after WWII, into East and West, with the pro-Russian Nationalists in the East under Putin’s skirt, and the West begging the EU for continual help because it’s population is starving.

Let’s not forget that the Ukraine itself is broke, it’s only two presidents having run its treasury into the ground.  Is the rest of the world ready to take on the responsibility for taking care of Western Ukraine?  Is the US prepared to follow its standard MO and dump billions of dollars into yet another country when we’re slashing our domestic spending to the point where our active military are relying on food stamps?  (http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2014/02/17/see-the-eye-popping-chart-about-food-stamps-and-the-military/)

Does anyone else see a problem with this?

There seems to be a HUGE disconnect between the fantasy of the US being the bastion of salvation for the world and the reality of the US not being willing to take care of the very people that protect its right to maintain that fantasy.

The Ukraine needs to be responsible for the Ukraine.  And if anyone feels we should help those “poor people” who are just trying to “establish democracy” or whatever the hell the story is our State Department spins, let’s remember that the US started all this in the first place (http://consortiumnews.com/2014/02/23/neocons-and-the-ukraine-coup/) and NOT for the benefit of the people- ours OR theirs.  The Ukraine is just one more move in the game of geopolitical chess our world “leaders” are playing, and whatever their next move is, it certainly won’t be in our favor…..
