It Was Only Just A Dream

Well, the alleged leader of the CIA, Leon “I’ll kiss the feet of the messiah” Panneta, canceled a program idea that had been batted around in the meeting rooms of the spy agency- a possible way by which we could capture or kill Al-Qaida operatives without all that pesky “collateral damage”, and the dems are pissed off that they were not informed.

Informed of what? An idea? dream? Something that never made it out of even the earliest stages of speculation? Why? Why in God’s name should they be informed of everybody’s dream?

This was talk- talk around a table by members of an organization that is specifically tasked to talk about such scenarios, but the members of Congress, who are so leaky that they need Depends on a 24/7 basis, feel left out and outraged that they hadn’t given these people permission to speculate this way.

The plans remained vague and were never carried out, the officials said, and Leon E. Panetta, the C.I.A. director, canceled the program last month.

Officials at the spy agency over the years ran into myriad logistical, legal and diplomatic obstacles. How could the role of the United States be masked? Should allies be informed and might they block the access of the C.I.A. teams to their targets? What if American officers or their foreign surrogates were caught in the midst of an operation? Would such activities violate international law or American restrictions on assassinations overseas?

Yes, it’s trouble in River City, with all that pesky diplomatic folderol to wade through. We just have to tell these countries our plans- that is as stupid as telling Congress, and just as leaky. The program should have been as black an ops program as possible, but when the head of the spy agency is an incompetent political hack, used for only one purpose, and that is to spy for his master, this is what you get.

Mr. Panetta scuttled the program, which would have relied on paramilitary teams, shortly after the C.I.A.’s counterterrorism center recently informed him of its existence. The next day, June 24, he told Congressional Intelligence Committees that the plan had been hidden from lawmakers, initially at the instruction of former Vice President Dick Cheney.

The program was designed in the frantic weeks after the Sept. 11 attacks when PresidentGeorge W. Bush signed a secret order authorizing the C.I.A. to capture or kill operatives ofAl Qaeda around the world. To be able to kill Osama bin Laden or his top deputies wherever they might be — even in cities or countries far from a war zone — struck top agency officials as an urgent goal, according to people involved in the discussions.

I know, this isn’t the movies, where left- wing actors get to act as if they had a pair, and try to act macho, this is the real world, where we haven’t enough Farsi speakers, and the people who most look like terrorists are Hispanic in origin, and virtually NONE of them speak Farsi, Urdu, or Pashto, a crippling deficiency that the Democrats exacerbated by downsizing the human intel aspect of the CIA in the Clinton era (Clinton has much to answer for on the intel side of his “legacy”- he must be SO proud).

Still, you might think a program that at least tries to minimize the killing of women and children would be viewed as a “good” thing, but nooooooooo. Not in the miniscule minds of the Democrat Congress, that is for sure, but this is driven solely by their hatred of all things Bush, nothing more.

Oh, I will admit it takes someone willing to gird their loins against the criticism that will surely come from the cowardly side that holds its finger in the wind, the better to see which way the political wind blows- that side will never have your back, because they are too busy protecting theirs. 

When the rest of the world won’t have the fortitude to protect civilization, someone has to step up- will it be the liberals? Oh no- they do not know how,nor do they have the testicular fortitude to say that this needs to be done.

And they certainly do not know when to step back and shut up with their incessant carping.

After all, it was only just a dream.
