Obama Telephones Cairo


Mr. Obama is delusional to think that a phone call to Cairo can turn back the cunning massive wave against America, fed by the Islamists, the jihadists, and Iran.


Briefing notes that I used for the Larry Kudlow Show, CNBC. Of course we were not able to get to most of it, but the nature of TV news is that you overprepare, because the blizzard of intelligence shapes the tone and direction of the presentation and reaction.

1. LIBYA THREAT: Benghazi and Libya: the Stevens death was an ambush by jihadists. The Libyan authorities knew the date of Ambassador Stevens’ arrival, at their invitation. Stevens was directed to the safe house because the ambush was waiting to strike him.

Stevens was ambushed by Al Q linked fighters, all under the umbrella of LIHJ (Libyan Islamic Fighting Group). This was a revenge attack linked to the drone killed of Al q senior commander Abu-Yahya al-Libi on June 4 in AfPak. Al-Libi’s older brother is a senior commander of LIHJ in Libya, Abd al-Wahhab.

There are many more strong links between Libya and the Al Q revenge saga. Famous LIHJ commander Belhadj was trained and protected by the dead al-Libi while he was in AfPak and Malaysia. If the White House doesn’t know this, it does NOT want to know this.

2. EGYPT THREAT: President Mohammed Morsi and the Supreme Council of the Moslem Brothers planned and endorsed the demonstration in Cairo at least two weeks before the event. Morsi and Moslem Brothers continued to endorse it. The video provocation did not exist before September 10. The video is excuse. Morse wants $10 Billion from US. Latest information is that Morsi WILL NOT meet with Obama in NY during UN meetings.

3. FRIDAY Embassy THREAT: Friday prayers, tomorrow, demonstrations called for in at least seven Arab capitals so far. The Yemen incident today not directly linked to Cairo and Libya, but there are plenty of Iran elements present, and there will be more trouble after Friday prayers. There is active planning in Cairo to revenge on the Copts for the video. There is evidence of Turkish Jihadist elements in Berlin who could run an anti US operation, and the evacuation of the Berlin embassy makes sense.

4. Iran and Syria benefit from all of this chaos and will drive it. US recruits fighters from Libya for “Free Syrian Army,” so the link is that the attacks in Libya were run by the same LIHJ we use for Syria.

5. Re video of Mohammed. Evidence that film produced by Rogue Coptic Egyptian with family in Egypt. He is not a Jew. No Jewish money involved. Evidence that film doesn’t exist, just crude trailer. Evidence that the trailer was constructed under fraudulent circumstances in order to raise money. No film evident. Film Producer, aka Bacile, has a criminal record. No Israeli would say he used “100″ Jews for sponsors.

Thursday Reporting on the Crisis.

Spoke Thursday with Malcolm Hoenlein, John Bolton, AEI; Mary Kissel, WSJ; Devin Nunes, CA-21; Salena Zito, Pittsburgh Tribune-Review; McKay Coppins, Buzzfeed: re the crisis in the ummah.

Devin Nunes reported that the State Department refused to brief House Select Intel Committee re the Benghazi and Cairo events. John Bolton declared that the Arab Spring is in failure, and the Obama administration has failed to show strength in the region and now suffers the results.

Salena Zito reported that her conversation with former DNI Michael Hayden indicated that the region is in collapse to extremist, anti-American elements.

McKay Coppins reported that the Romney camp, after feeling tender about its quick response to the first day of the crisis, is now feeling stronger that the continuing collapse in the region underlines the Romney message of peace through strength, not apology and accommodation of aggressors.

Malcolm Hoenlein emphasized that the video is a fraud, produced by a fraudster, and that the video was not the cause of the Cairo or Benghazi violence: it was used as an excuse, and will now be exploited by the enemies of democracy.

We also spoke to former IAEA inspector, Dr. Olli Heinonen, Harvard Belfer Center senior fellow, who estimated that Iran can produce a nuclear weapon by the summer of 2013. Other voices pointed to the likelihood that while Iran did not concoct the Benghazi and Cairo operations, Iran has uses for them and will now drive protests in the Gulf.

Anti-Americanism strengthens Tehran.

Obama Calls Morsi.

Late reporting from David Kirkpatrick, NYT, that POTUS Obama turned from campaigning on Air Force One to make a twenty-minute telephone call to Mohammed Morsi to speak forcefully that the Egyptian leadership must contain the violent protests in Cairo and other cities planned for the next hours.

The White House version: “The President made his point that we’ve been committed to the process of change in Egypt, and we want to continue to build with the Egyptian government….”

Translation: Candidate Obama is aware that the collapsing Middle East picture and the fervent anti-Americanism is a direct threat to his re-election song that he has restored American prestige and defeated the jihadists.

Will Morsi obey? Only in English. The Moslem Brothers entirely endorse the protests.

Cairo University’s immam entirely endorse the pogroms against the Copts.

Mr. Obama is delusional to think that a phone call to Cairo can turn back the cunning massive wave against America, fed by the Islamists, the jihadists, and Iran.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=yMSnyOMRXos This is so sick. It is supposedly a video of The Ambassador being pulled from rubble. The cheering at the end to me leaves no doubt the intentions of those who found him.”

    During the ‘Arab Spring’ I cautioned people to be careful what they wished for. It never appeared to be spontaneous to me.

    In the world of governing and politics there’s very little that isn’t planned.

    The Morsi government claims to have arrested 4 Libyan men for the Ambassador’s death. Why do the have the feeling that these 4 were “randomly picked” so to speak?

    Obama still seems to think that being charming and engaging, with no substance behind it, is enough to win the day.

    Sometimes it takes very hard work and sleepless nights. Sometimes you have to give up want you want and what to want to do for the good of those you lead.

    Obama has none of these qualities. I believe he simply is incapable of real sacrifice for others. Unless of course it’s someone else’s accomplishment and there are cameras around.

    This type of indifference and his conviction that he knows more than anyone else in the room is dangerous. What’s happened in the ME, Northern Africa, and elsewhere around the world proves just how dangerous he is.

      “During the ‘Arab Spring’ I cautioned people to be careful what they wished for. It never appeared to be spontaneous to me.”

      You do realize that Libya just elected a moderate government and the Muslim Brotherhood candidate lost.

      By the way Morsi is the leader of Egypt not Libya. I believe those that were arrested were arrested in Libya. You probably should get the basic facts right before you comment.

      • beachnan

        Moderate? Compared to what? They did a fine job of protecting the embassy didn’t they?

      • shelldoll2

        So moderate they stood down while the embassy and our Ambassador were attacked? That’s according to one their own Libyan security people.

        • HObama HObamanana

          I guess that is moderate compared to the common people that did the murdering.

      • shelldoll2

        My apologies I’m tired and have had a hard day. See I can admit when I’m wrong or have confused the facts. Can you?

    thanks john for excellent research and presentation.

  • elizabethrc

    So now it seems the media have caught on to Obama’s colossal lie about the motive behind the attacks on Americans in the ME. What is his response after Amb. Rice, Carney and all the other yes men in Obama’s employ (I thought they were actually in our employ, silly me)? “We can’t talk about it because the FBI investigation is ongoing and we refer you to the Justice Dept. but they won’t talk to you either because of the investigation.”
    The American people have a right to know the truth, a concept which seems inconvenient to the Obama crowd. Now they’re trying to censor Google, but they don’t have the legal right to ‘chill’ speech in this country.
    For a so-called Constitutional scholar, Obama is woefully ignorant about the rights of Americans. Obviously, he missed a few classes!
    He’s now gotten himself into a mess royale and when this first broke, I thought it would be good for Obama, but in spite of the partisan blathering by people like Harpootlian who fall back on “well he got Osama”, it’s not nearly enough to satisfy the people. We all see there is a mess of wool being pulled over our eyes. Most of us are allergic to this kind of wool and this is a great opportunity for Romney to show a strong response to this censorship.

    • MG6

      Didn’t he sign an executive order which allows him to throw the kill switch on the Internet in case of emergency?

      • PainKillerJayne

        Whoa……..good point.

  • lola828

    “Mr. Obama is delusional to think that a phone call to Cairo can turn back the cunning massive wave against America, fed by the Islamists, the jihadists, and Iran.”

    What a stupid comment.

    Nothing wrong with putting pressure on Morsi to protect the U.S. embassy. Seems like the call worked, as the Egyptian authorities have pushed the mobs back and improved the safety around the Embassy.

    What would you recommend doing Mr. Batchelor?

      lola do yourself a favor and go read up using some realistic stories. you are pathetic.

        Nice generic non-substantive reply.

        • beachnan

          Seemed like a good reply. Try reading a few sites that aren’t pro-Democratic. You might learn something. Highly unlikely that you will see the truth, since you are still drunk on the koolaid, but try anyway.

        • Hokma

          that was advice dimwit – not a comment.

          What she doesn’t know is that you live in a basement and your entire body of information is a Google search.

        • HObama HObamanana

          Rehearsing your replies in a mirror again, I see.

    • mgm

      I’m not Mr.Batchelor, but I would recommend that the administration start telling the truth about what happened. It does not make anyone reassured when conflicting stories are put forth and the administration stonewalls because Rice and Jarrett and apparently Clinton blew it. The only reason I don’t include Obama in that list is because I doubt he has any notion of what’s going on. He’s too busy campaigning and criticizing Romney for sounding sane.

      • lola828

        You win the looney NQ conspiracy comment of the day.

    It wasn’t an Arab spring. It was more like the calm before the storm.
    My hope is that it’s finally going to be the last storm for a long, long, while—even if it has to be a big one and one that we have to muster all our courae to get through.
    VOTE OBAMA OUT!!!! SEND THE HAPA HOME.

      “Arab Spring was never spontaneous, but carefully planned and orchestrated. It is not about freeing repressed nations, but conquering them. It is not about democracy, but about destroying their sovereignty and replacing one oppressor with another.”
      That is the clear picture. Of Arab Spring and this weeks events.

    • Garookie

      MG6: Thanks for the link to .canadafreepress.com. It’s a pity that we have to go to an outside (USA) source for an honest evaluation of Obama. It’s obvious that our MSM are such whores for Obama that these analyses of Obama won’t get out into the mainstream. After exploring that website I also found the following article that I wish would go viral, especially with younger voters (students).

    No protest before Benghazi attack, wounded Libyan guard says

    The guard, interviewed Thursday in the hospital where he is being
    treated for five shrapnel wounds in one leg and two bullet wounds in the
    other, said that the consulate area was quiet – “there wasn’t a single
    ant outside,” he said – until about 9:35 p.m., when as many as 125 armed
    men descended on the compound from all directions.
    The men lobbed
    grenades into the compound, wounding the guard and knocking him to the
    ground, then stormed through the facility’s main gate, shouting “God is
    great” and moving to one of the many villas that make up the consulate
    compound. He said there had been no warning that an attack was imminent.

    “Wouldn’t you expect if there were protesters outside that the Americans would leave?” the guard said.

    I doubt that Obama made a call at all. I’m thinking he probably did something more like what is shown in this video, looking in the mirror with that beautiful singing voice of his.

    You got it all wrong, Obama is NOT trying to turn back the attacks against America. He is instead promoting and defending Islam, using the opportunity to apologize for America, and is more interested in getting out to fundraise instead of attending to the affairs of state.

    While the establishment media has
    engaged in a concerted effort to bury the fact that
    today’s attack on a U.S. Consulate in Benghazi was carried
    out by the same extremists the U.S. armed during the
    overthrow of Colonel Gaddafi, Libya’s Ambassador to
    Washington Ali Aujali launched his own lame attempt to
    shift the blame, ludicrously pointing the finger at
    Gaddafi loyalists.

    “We know that Qaddafi’s associates are in Libya. Of
    course, they took this chance to infiltrate among the
    people,” Aujali said in today in an interview.

    “His claim contradicts most reports, which place the blame
    on radical Islamist groups that claimed to be reacting to
    an obscure American film they viewed as insulting to
    Islam. Aujali said that the Libyan government has
    intelligence that unspecified Qaddafi forces were
    involved,” reports Foreign Policy.

    For Aujiali to claim that the attack, which took place in
    the rebel stronghold of Benghazi, was the work of Gaddafi
    loyalists, is a plainly absurd trick to manipulate the
    narrative behind the incident in a desperate bid to save
    face.

    As Tony Cartalucci points out, the media’s failure to
    admit that the terrorists behind the attack are the same
    gangs of thugs armed and empowered by NATO represents “an
    attempt by the West to reestablish the perception that the
    US and Israel are at war with sectarian extremists, not
    partnered with them.”

    Every indication points to the fact that the attack was
    carried out by Al-Qaeda affiliated terrorists whom NATO
    supported during last year’s bombardment of Libya, the
    same bands of Salafists who have destroyed mosques and
    shrines across Libya and whose goal is to impose sharia
    law.

      It’s very telling that Morsi will not meet with Obama when he’s in New York. That would be far too exposed for him. He’d prefer to be duplicitous and do it away from the eyes and ears of his fellow American haters in the ME.
      And now he wants 10 billion from the US? When will this insanity stop? Not another dime, no humanitarian aid, nothing as long as America is demeaned from without (and within) and attacked.
      Even a child know that when his tummy starts to ache, it’s time to stop eating the ice cream! Unless it’s in Obama’s case, where he cannot put two and two together and realize the cause and effect of the problem.

      • mgm

        The media and Morsi call the ten billion dollars “humanitarian aid.” I call it blackmail.

        • PatW

          It’s really called jizya which is defined in the koran as a tax paid by non-muslims to muslims. An example of the jizya was the tribute to be paid to the Barbary Coast rulers to protect shipments of non-mulsim goods through muslim lands. Copts in Egypt are forced to pay the jizya uness they want their homes and churches burned to the gorund and their woman raped and enslaved. Jizya is what the Mafia calls protection money.
