‘Screwy Louie’ Gohmert (R-TX) – ‘GOP Moron of the Day’

Via: Think Progress

1

A Republican congressman warned Americans that President Obama would not be able to adequately protect the nation from the threat posed by the Islamic State in Iraq and Greater Syria (ISIS) — the terrorist organization that has taken over large parts of Iraq — because the administration’s policy is being guided and influenced by “Muslim brothers.”

Appearing on SiriusXM’s “The Wilkow Majority,” Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) argued, “if you’re Commander-in-Chief you can’t be listening to Muslim brother advise on when it’s time to stop destroying Muslim brothers.”

Personal Thought:

A Member of Congress accuses the President of treason – inexcusable!

Fox News Lies: ISIS Leader Released By George W. Bush!

Via: AATTP

The latest lie-riddled reporting on Fox concerns the circumstances of the capture and release of Abu Bakr al Baghdadi, the leader of the terrorist group, Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS). Fox and other conservative media outlets are endeavoring to place the responsibility for Baghdadi’s brutal march through Iraq on President Obama, but as it turns out, that is utterly false.

In yet another example of journalistic malpractice, the folks at Fox News broadcast a number of reports that got the most significant facts completely wrong. In order to do so, they relied on the assertions of a single, uncorroborated account, and failed to do the most basic follow-up with the people in a position to know. Representative commentaries include these by Fox hosts Jeanine Pirro and Megyn Kelly:

~~~

Fox News LIES:

Pirro: The head of this band of savages is a man by the name of Abu al-Baghdadi. The new Osama Bin Laden. A man released by Obama in 2009, who started ISIS a year later.

Kelly: We are also learning more about the leader of the terror group, a man described as the new Bin Laden, the heir to Bin Laden. It turns out he had been in U.S. custody until 2009, over in Iraq, when he was then turned over to the Iraqi government as part of our troop drawdown. And then he was released.

~~~

The TRUTH:

“Ibrahim Awad Ibrahim Al Badry, also known as ‘Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi’ was held as a ‘civilian internee’ by U.S. Forces-Iraq from early February 2004 until early December 2004, when he was released,” the Pentagon said in a statement. “He was held at Camp Bucca. A Combined Review and Release Board recommended ‘unconditional release’ of this detainee and he was released from U.S. custody shortly thereafter. We have no record of him being held at any other time.”

There is no question we need to do a better job of taking care of our vets from, Iraq-I, Iraq-II, and Afghanistan. I mean, NO QUESTION!

It’s a pity the Shia and Sunni are continuing to slaughter each other on a regular basis.

But the U.S. is powerless to stop it; so, No, Iraq-III. PERIOD!

Veterans Watch as Gains Their Friends Died for Are Erased by Insurgents

Via: New York Times

A few weeks before their battalion was to get new mine-resistant vehicles, Capt. Adam P. Snyder, Pvt. Dewayne L. White and Sgt. Eric J. Hernandez were speeding toward a mission in Baiji, Iraq, when a roadside bomb engulfed their Humvee in flames, killing the two enlisted men. Captain Snyder, 26, died the next day, Dec. 5, 2007.

Matthew Adkins, then a self-described “butterbar” lieutenant, regarded the captain as a mentor, and his death leveled him. Hearing this week that Baiji was on the brink of being overrun by Sunni militants, he immediately thought of Captain Snyder, phoned his girlfriend, and cried.

“You think about those costs that can never be recouped,” Mr. Adkins said in an interview from Talkeetna, Alaska, where he works as a field manager for pipeline surveys. “I remember driving those Humvees to Balad Air Base to get our new MRAPs, and thinking if we had these things two weeks ago, they’d still be alive.”

Everyone from Mr. Adkins’s Army unit, the First Battalion, 327th Infantry Regiment, had hard memories this week, as insurgents made their way from Mosul down what the soldiers knew as Route Tampa — the main north-south highway — past Baiji on the way to Tikrit and other cities closer to Baghdad. From late 2007 until the end of 2008, the battalion had safeguarded the huge refinery at Baiji, often described as the most valuable asset in the country’s three heavily Sunni provinces in the north.

About 800 American troops lost their lives, and many more were wounded, in those territories, the homeland of Saddam Hussein and his Baathist loyalists. For the comrades of those fallen troops, the grim news this week has left them struggling to reconcile the sacrifices that were made with the speed and magnitude with which northern Iraq is falling to insurgents.

Perhaps the young soldiers can ask their Fathers and Uncles how they felt on April 29, 1975 when the saw  photos of U.S. helicopters lifting off the roof of the U.S. Embassy in Saigon.

Note worth remembering: President Johnson lied to the American people about the Gulf of Tonkin, and President George W. Bush lied to the American people about WMD’s.

If you need someone to blame, start with LBJ and Bush.
