Well, I just wrote my Senators and Representative... More on that in a moment.
First and foremost, lets look at the air heads running our National Security agencies, namely our civilian intelligence and Homeland Security...
First the DNI (Director of National Intelligence, the position created by President G.W. Bush to correlate all the CIA, NSA, and DIA data) James R. Clapper is attempting to back peddle from his statement that the Muslim Brother hood is a 'largely secular' organization. Anyone who has done homework on Islamo-Fascism and Radical Islam knows about the Muslim Brotherhood, they are the root of modern Radical Islam; they inspired Al-Qaeda! In fact, the top Al-Qaeda officers were all involved in the Muslim Brotherhood first, that is the group that radicalized their beliefs and instilled the supremacy of the Sharia Law and Quaran over all else in their lives; most especially the need to instill it upon the Infidel (or kill him). I recommend reading "The Looming Tower" by Lawerence Wright to dig more into the Muslim Brotherhood and Al-Qaeda. In the face of this information that has been out for decades, the DNI needs to resign. That kind of ignorance is not acceptable in that particular government post.
Second, the Director of Central Intelligence Leon Panetta, made the statement yesterday that Mubarak would indeed step down and announce it during his speech to the Egyptian people. That didn't happen, the resignation just happened today... While it did indeed happen, the speculation that it would happen yesterday during the speech... It didn't. I believe Mubarak resigned today after he made his get away in order to make said get away... However, Panetta made his statement not based on Intelligence collected by the CIA he heads, but based only upon assumptions made by the media.
Finally, we have 'Big Sister' Janet Napolitano. Janet Napolitano is the Secretary of Homeland Security, the head of the Department of Homeland Security which now is in charge of a plethora of government agencies charged with the defense of the US within our borders and disaster preparedness/response. I've blogged enough about her incompetence (with the capstone being that DHS Report on 'Right Wing Extremism'...). So, as Iran and Venezuela start being buddies and discussing the placement of Intermediate Range Ballistic Missiles (not capable of hitting the US, but Puerto Rico and Columbia are certainly in range if that happens), we still have a porous border. Arizona is suing the US Government to cover the costs of arresting Illegal Aliens. This was a counter suit in response to the Federal suit against Arizona because of a law they had to pass that is an exact mirror to the US Immigration Enforcement policy... Why? Because the US Border Patrol and ICE have been hamstrung by Napolitano and DHS (I won't blame her completely, this type of agency incompetence dates back to the late eighties). Our Border is just about on fire with war between the cartels, Mexican Federal Government, the US Border Patrol, and US Citizens along the border. What has DHS done? Almost nothing for all the billions they've spent, and all the Predator UAV's they fly. How many OTMs have come through enroute to carry out terrorism? Yet while this is happening, if you want to fly you are essentially strip searched without a Warrant or probable cause (well, I suppose wanting to fly is now probable cause...).
So, here is my letter to my Senators and Congressman:
Dear Senators Murkowski and Begich, and Representative Don Young,
In light of recent events involving the Director of Central Intelligence, the Director of National Intelligence, and the Secretary of Homeland Security all displaying blatant signs of incompetence, it is my belief all three need to fired and their agencies investigated by the Senate and the House committees appropriate to the task. When both the DCI and DNI make public statements to Congress that are absolutely erroneous and not based on real intelligence (of which they are the head of the agencies that collect such data and have NO excuse for not drawing upon those resources), but instead on open source media reports without correlation to other intelligence sources, it frankly scares me. These are the men who are responsible for heading up the agencies that are responsible for keeping track of what is going on in these foreign countries. Our DNI denied stated against 90 years worth of Muslim Brotherhood history, that they were a SECULAR organization?! Either this is a denial of fact made willfully, or gross incompetence (one just needs to study a bit about the Muslim Brotherhood in order to find such a statement moronic).
That in and of it self is cause for extreme concern. What brings the fear factor up even further is the gross incompetence of the Dept. of Homeland Security under the current Secretary Janet Napolitano. Where do we begin here? That whole 'Right Wing Extremism' report that profiled returning GWOT (wait, never mind the reality of this Global War on Terror, this administration re-named it something els entirely, yet another reason I'm beginning to fear for the survival of my country) veterans such as myself as a threat? Or perhaps the fact that our Southern Border is still as porous as ever in spite of the creation of DHS back in the Bush Administration and the placing of the US Border Patrol under DHS. Meanwhile, we have to submit ourselves to ever more invasive search procedures to board US commercial flights! Tell me there isn't something wrong the idea that anyone can sneak in from Mexico through rugged terrain, live here illegally and get a construction job under the table (or smuggle drugs), yet all everyone has to be just about stripped searched at our airports on their way to visit family? Why is Napolitano against putting more forces on the border and building fences in the face of Venezuela and Iran building closer strategic ties? This is the realm of our survival in which she can make great strides (there are great ideas for compromise on the border that indeed close it down to smugglers, increase security, yet still allow for the masses of immigrants seeking greater opportunity here in the US to come and find jobs).
This current Administration is compromising our National Security by hiring incompetents within our Intelligence community and Homeland Security; while simultaneous hiring 9/11 Truthers and Communists as 'czars' in other areas of government. This should sound the alarm in the back of your mind, and if does not you need to educate yourself on the ramifications of these facts. I can tell you that the 9/11 Truther lies are spoken as a fact in the Middle East, and I strongly believe that this movement is fed by not just the conspiracy nuts, but also our enemies; yet we have people who believe in such propaganda now running parts of our government?!
On the National level we have morons running the top three civilian agencies responsible for our National Security, and we have people who couldn't pass a background check for a Secret or Top Secret security clearance being appointed by the POTUS as 'Green Jobs Czar', or other such frivolous posts. On top of this, locally, we have nut jobs like Schaeffer Cox running around utilizing these realities to set himself up with a cult of personality rounding up disciples to help him carve a kingdom for himself in Alaska when the US Government finally falls apart?! Well, with morons on top, its no wonder where these guys get their crazy ideas.
