restraining order

It looks like this story, besides a few news outlets, seems to have flown under the radar. (pun not intended)

Via Investor’s Business Daily: 8/15/14 – Andrew Malcolm — Obama lifts ban on Libyans attending flight school, studying nuclear science here

Remember the aftermath of 9/11 when investigators made the chilling discovery that American flight instructors had unwittingly taught the Arab hijackers how to fly jumbo jets like the ones they plowed into the World Trade Center and Pentagon, killing some 3,000 innocents?

And how one of the dumber hijackers had raised suspicions, letting slip that he had no intention of seeking a pilot’s license? But, you might not be surprised to learn, Washington wasn’t really into taking seriously any alarms from unimportant places like Minnesota?

Turns out, President Reagan worried about terrorist hijackers using airplanes as weapons way back in 1983. He banned Libyans from taking flight lessons or nuclear studies in the United States.

Now, believe it or not, President Obama is lifting that ban because, aides say, post-Gaddafi Libya and its relations with the United States are “normalized.”

Seriously? We just abandoned our embassy there last month….

And, talk about poor timing:

Via Guardian: 8/24/14 — Libyan capital under Islamist control after Tripoli airport seized

Libya has lurched ever closer to fragmentation and civil war this weekend after Islamist-led militias seized the airport in the capital, Tripoli, proclaimed their own government, and presented the world with yet another crisis.

Operation Dawn, a coalition of Islamist and Misrata forces, captured the airport on Saturday in fierce fighting against pro-government militias after a five-week siege that battered parts of the capital.

Television images from the scene showed jubilant, bearded, militias dancing on wrecked airliners, firing machine guns in the air and chanting “Allah O Akbar” (“God is great”)….

Is this what Obama means by ‘normalized’ ?

    Please, can someone just give B.O. a bunch of toys and lock him up in a playpen and let him go at it. He either doesn’t have a brain or it’s melting away.

    In addition to Obama undoubedtly enjoying overturning a Reagan foreign affairs legacy, let’s review some history of, To the shores of Tripoli. Wikip:

    “…On 11 October 1784, Moroccan pirates seized the brigantine Betsey…In March 1785, Thomas Jefferson and John Adams went to London to negotiate with Tripoli’s envoy, Ambassador Sidi Haji Abdrahaman…the ambassador replied: “It was written in their Koran, that all nations which had not acknowledged the Prophet were sinners, whom it was the right and duty of the faithful to plunder and enslave; and that every mussulman who was slain in this warfare was sure to go to paradise….” The U.S. paid Algiers the ransom, and continued to pay up to $1 million per year over the next 15 years for the safe passage of American ships or the return of American hostages….amounted to approximately 10% of the U.S. government’s annual revenues in 1800….On Jefferson’s inauguration as president in 1801, Yusuf Karamanli, the Pasha…of Tripoli, demanded $225,000 from the new administration….Jefferson refused the demand. Consequently, on 10 May 1801, the Pasha declared war on the U.S. …in the customary Barbary manner of cutting down the flagstaff in front of the U.S. Consulate….”

    Obama will pay ransom to the pirates in any way that he can.

    I’ll say this again: Is anyone making a list of all the EO crappings? Our new POTUS will have to spend the 1st Qtr of 2017 undoing all the national security breaches OJerk has exposed us to over the past 8 years. Nothing he does make any sense, unless you’re a radical Muslim.

    What can go wrong?

    I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again BO is a Islamist terrorist facilitator. Pure and simple.
