Once again, we’re appalled at the blatant politicization of criminal offenses by politicians.
Perhaps we’ve seen this so often that it should no longer surprise us, but that shouldn’t stop us from being outraged.
For instance, when we find out former president Barack Obama spied on the Supreme Court, Americans reserve the right to be angry.
And they have every right to STILL be furious over a critical mistake the Obama administration made some years back.
The current furor, of course, is over President Trump’s alleged contacts with Russia as well as the issue of the resignation of General Flynn.
Reputable sources have already debunked that ridiculous story, including Russian president Vladimir Putin, but the mainstream media won’t let up. But what about that critical mistake of Obama’s…?
Put bluntly, in contrast to alleged leaking of sensitive information to Russia, Mr. Obama and his team leaked information that got people killed.
“Former CIA Director Leon Panetta, for example, told CNN on Tuesday that Trump ‘cannot just say whatever the hell he wants and expect it doesn’t carry consequences.'”
This is an interesting comment for Mr. Panetta to make “because it was his loose talk after the Osama bin Laden raid that exposed a Pakistani doctor, Shakil Afridi, who helped locate the Al Qaeda leader.
As a result, Afridi was imprisoned on fabricated charges and will live under fear of assassination for the rest of his life.”
To make matters worse, Joe Biden, a man frequently prone to making bizarre and inappropriate statements, revealed confidential information to the world.
“On May 3, at an event in Washington, Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. did the unthinkable:
He publicly revealed the identity of the special-operations unit responsible for bin Laden’s killing. His reckless action put at risk the lives of every member of SEAL Team 6.”
Words have consequences. And these consequences were difficult for America to swallow:
“The response came on August 6, 2011, when the Taliban shot down a Chinook helicopter in Afghanistan, killing 30 soldiers. Among the dead: 15 members of SEAL Team 6.”
Where is the justice for those killed that was enabled by the reckless behavior of Mr. Panetta, Mr. Biden, and Mr. Obama?
Now tell us again…how does this compare to whatever Trump told to whom? Doesn’t really matter anyway, as we don’t put any confidence in confirmed FAKE NEWS.
