White House deceiving Americans about IS
Not a day goes by that beheadings, burning people alive, mass killings, destruction of Biblical landmarks are reported of the horrors perpetrated by the Islamic State. It was in March 2011 when the "president" took to national TV to make his case for aiding and abetting the Muslim Brotherhood and al Qaeda in attacking Libya during the US supported "Arab Spring" revolts. He said of Libyan dictator Muammar Qaddafi, "He has denied his people freedom, exploited their wealth, murdered opponents at home and abroad, and terrorized innocent people around the world." Thus, the "president" aided the overthrow of Libya by the same terrorists we were fighting in Iraq. When it comes to IS, however, it's a different story.
The IS is committing even more atrocities than Qaddafi. Yet the "president" is far less fiery regarding this Islamic group. In a speech at the Pentagon on July 6, he said, "Our comprehensive strategy against ISIL is harnessing all elements of American power, across our government -- military, intelligence, diplomatic, economic, development and perhaps most importantly, the power of our values." Yet he admitted there were setbacks, most notably: "We see a growing ISIL presence in Libya and attempts to establish footholds across North Africa, the Middle East, the Caucasus, and Southeast Asia. We've seen attacks in Ottawa, Sydney, France and Copenhagen."
The Daily Beast reports that the "president" and his political appointees are watering down intelligence assessments about the Islamic State to give the appearance that the US is accomplishing more than it is. The Daily Beast reports: "More than 50 intelligence analysts working out of the US military's Central Command have formally complained that their reports on ISIS and al Qaeda's branch in Syria were being inappropriately altered by senior officials." The "president's" appointees were described as "Stalinist" in censoring the intelligence reports to paint a rosier picture to the public about efforts against IS, despite the terrorist group's undeniable progress against anemic resistance by the US.
Sometimes one has to suspend your disbelief to see through the reality. There is a common denominator in who this "president" supports. In Libya, it was the Muslim Brotherhood and al Qaeda. In Syria, it is al Nursa, which pledged loyalty to the IS. Turkey, another of the "president's" allies is supporting the IS. Iran, which the "president" is supporting, has said it will not cooperate with the US against the IS. This "president" seems to be promoting a theme of "all Islam, all the time." His support of Arab spring destabilized the Middle East and spawned the IS. Now his efforts to defeat the IS are half-hearted at best, but he wants Americans to think we are winning. Deception is in the air. Jesus told us in Matthew 24:4, "Take heed that no man deceive you." He also said we will know them not by their words, but by their deeds. Take heed.
Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!
