What’s your favorite Barack Obama scandal so far?
The now-notorious Palestine/Israel UN catastrophe that earned our former president several million more enemies? That’s always a popular choice.
Or do you prefer the $2.6 billion welfare scandal that had us all thinking about Rush Limbaugh’s “Walking in a Welfare Wonderland” spoof?
That one raised plenty of eyebrows, and it’s almost as despicable as the awful Obamacare scandal that taxpayers STILL can’t believe.
But wait, we’ve got another one…let’s start here:
Osama Bin Laden was killed in dramatic fashion and a veritable treasure trove of information was collected and analyzed by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI).
By some accounts, the information that was found within the compound of Bin Laden was “massive and important.” By others, it was so much more.
“In an interview on Meet the Press just days after the raid, Barack Obama’s national security adviser, Thomas Donilon, said the material could fill ‘a small college library.’ A senior military intelligence official who briefed reporters at the Pentagon on May 7, 2011, said: ‘As a result of the raid, we’ve acquired the single largest collection of senior terrorist materials ever.’ Sources who have described the cache to THE WEEKLY STANDARD over the years have claimed that the number of captured documents, including even extraneous materials and duplicates, totals more than 1 million.”
While the book was closing on the Obama administration in the wee hours of the night before Inauguration, the ODNI was updating its website with the final uploads of the Bin Laden documents.
For years, it had been uploading to the site, as part of its agreement to provide such materials to the public.
When all was said done, how many of these hundreds of thousands of articles of importance finally made it into the archival record?
Try five hundred and seventy-one!
It’s true. For all of the fanfare and the pomp regarding how much information was garnered from the killing of Osama Bin Laden, 571 pieces of information out of a “small college library” seems a pittance.
“Can it really be the case that this release ‘closes the book’? The short answer: No, it can’t.
Why would the Obama administration go to such lengths to keep this valuable information from the public?
It appears that this has been not a large, but a MONSTROUS undertaking to obfuscate the truth that Al-Qaeda was, in fact, much more deadly than what Obama would have us believe.
A concerted effort over the course of his entire two terms of office had been initiated in order to hide the fact that this “JV team” terrorist organization that was “on the run” was in fact a lie; a fabrication to provide cover to Obama’s assertions that Bush and the Republicans had used excessive military actions and legislative orders to extend their own power and authority.
“President Obama attempted to unilaterally declare an end to the 9/11 wars. To justify their counterterrorism strategy, Obama and his advisers saw the enemy they wanted to see, not the one they were actually fighting. They routinely ignored the first rule of warfare: The enemy gets a vote. There’s no telling how many current intelligence assessments have Obama’s misunderstandings baked into them. The Trump administration will have to correct and replace any Obama-style analyses that outlive his presidency.
There is no better place to start than by releasing Osama bin Laden’s files. Al Qaeda is a more complex and sophisticated adversary than Obama believed. The American public deserves to know how the man who launched the 9/11 wars really saw the world.”
Getting these other papers released will most likely be as easy as getting the answers to the Kennedy Assassination. The fact that President Obama was one of those that must be “protected at all costs” it is unlikely we’ll ever see the truth.
And let’s not forget that Obama’s administration actually helped fund terrorist organizations and activities, which just boggles the mind.
If Donald Trump pushes the issue, there may be a chance; but the real question will be whether the Establishment Congress members will be as curious as the American public?
