Ralph Peters: 9/11 is Obama’s Fault

moran.jpgNothing brings out the right-wing crazies quite like 9/11. And few are crazier than Ralph Peters.

We resolved that we, the People, would never forget. Then we forgot.

We’ve learned nothing.

Instead of cracking down on Islamist extremism, we’ve excused it.

Instead of killing terrorists, we free them.

Instead of relentlessly hunting Islamist madmen, we seek to appease them.

Since Peters doesn’t consider "cracking down" bombing, invading and occupying two countries while regularly firing missiles into a third, continually waging hot wars in said countries for the better part of a decade, building a network of secret CIA interrogation sites around the globe, abandoning our laws and values by illegally detaining, torturing and killing enemy prisoners in military bases, reconfiguring the entire domestic security apparatus of the United States — all at a cost of 50,000 American casualties, including over 4,000 dead, hundreds of thousands of dead Iraqis and Afghanistanis and trillions of dollars– you really wonder what qualifies.


Instead of acknowledging that radical Islam is the problem, we elected a president who blames America, whose idea of freedom is the right for women to suffer in silence behind a veil — and who counts among his mentors and friends those who damn our country or believe that our own government staged the tragedy of September 11, 2001.

Instead of confronting Saudi hate-mongers, our president bows down to the Saudi king.

Instead of recognizing the Saudi-sponsored Wahhabi cult as the core of the problem, our president blames Israel.

Instead of asking why Middle Eastern civilization has failed so abjectly, our president suggests that we’re the failures.

That would be the President who hired George W. Bush’s SecDef, increased defense spending, escalated the war in Afghanistan and hasn’t closed Gitmo. But he hasn’t bombed or invaded Saudi Arabia yet, like George W. Bush did, so he’s obviously a weak terror-loving appeaser who admires "Middle Eastern civilization." Also.

In case you’re wondering who this assclown is, here’s the first line of his column that ran on March 1, 2006.

THE reporting out of Baghdad continues to be hysterical and dishonest. There is no civil war in the streets. None. Period.

And that’s how much credibility Ralph Peters has.
