ELDER PATRIOT – Isis grew into a worldwide terror network under President Obama’s watch while he was telling the American people that they were nothing more than J.V. team. Now evidence has surfaced that Obama knowingly lied to us.
The Military Times has reported that The American military has failed to disclose thousands of lethal airstrikes conducted in Iraq, Syria and Afghanistan over several years of the Obama administration:
“In 2016 alone, U.S. combat aircraft conducted at least 456 airstrikes in Afghanistan that were not recorded as part of an open-source database maintained by the U.S. Air Force, information relied on by Congress, American allies, military analysts, academic researchers, the media and independent watchdog groups to assess each war’s expense, manpower requirements and human toll.”
Those airstrikes were excluded from otherwise comprehensive monthly summaries detailing American military activity in all three theaters.
“U.S. Central Command, which oversees military activity in all three war zones, indicated it is unable to determine how far back the Army’s numbers have been excluded from these airpower summaries.”
This calls into question why the Pentagon deliberately misled the American public. How high up did these orders come from? Did President Obama direct his military commanders to “cook the books” for political reasons?
Does this explain the reason for Obama’s purge of our military’s top generals in 2013? Or, does the deception of the public date back to earlier in Obama’s administration or even to the Bush administration?
The revelations also raise doubts as to the veracity of other vital data including combat casualties, taxpayer expense and the military’s overall progress in degrading enemy capabilities.
The American people need answers to these questions.
- Did Obama order the deliberate suppression of this data to obscure the growth of Isis into a world threat?
- Was this the result of electing a naïve ideological community organizer who was taken advantage of by defense contractors and their minions in Congress like John McCain, Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan?
- Were the strikes ordered on low-value targets for the purpose of degrading our military?
- Or were the strikes unreported because they were orchestrated to reward the various manufacturers of our military’s equipment and materiel? Keep in mind that six trillion dollars have been spent on our various wars in the Middle East. That is 30% of all of the debt our country has accumulated since we became a country…and we have nothing to show for it but a region in political turmoil.
We won WWII fighting the world’s two major military powers in less than three years after having entered the war with a military that first required ramping up for the challenge.
In that light, how do we explain our inability to secure the single country, Iraq, that was the pretense for entering the Middle East theater in the first place when we started with the world’s most elite and powerful military?
At the least, heads should roll at the Pentagon for failing to meet its objective in Iraq.
But, if there has been a deliberate policy of lying about casualties and costs to enrich the military-industrial complex we have a right to expect criminal indictments.
Or, if Obama and his handpicked commanders were actually aiding Isis to grow into a force for radical Islam, then such treasonous actions must be exposed.
America needs to know. And, with Donald Trump as our president we may finally learn the truth about how our government operates.
