Bergdahl Declared Jihad Against America In Captivity

bowe-bergdahl-Jihad

U.S. Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl at one point during his captivity converted to Islam, fraternized openly with his captors and declared himself a “mujahid,” or warrior for Islam, according to intelligence documents

Breaking news.  So according to Bergdahl’s fellow comrades, Bowe DEFECTED to the Taliban, converted to Islam and declared himself an Islamic warrior and proclaimed Jihad.

I think this sheds some light on Berdahl’s father quoting the Q’uran and blessing Allah at the White House during that press conference.

THIS CERTAINLY puts the insistent comments by Obama’s UN Ambassador Susan Rice on all the media networks over the weekend in perspective now doesn’t it?

EXCLUSIVE: Bergdahl declared jihad in captivity, secret documents show

U.S. Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl at one point during his captivity converted to Islam, fraternized openly with his captors and declared himself a “mujahid,” or warrior for Islam, according to secret documents prepared on the basis of a purported eyewitness account and obtained by Fox News.

The reports indicate that Bergdahl’s relations with his Haqqani captors morphed over time, from periods of hostility, where he was treated very much like a hostage, to periods where, as one source told Fox News, “he became much more of an accepted fellow” than is popularly understood. He even reportedly was allowed to carry a gun at times.

The documents show that Bergdahl at one point escaped his captors for five days and was kept, upon his re-capture, in a metal cage, like an animal. In addition, the reports detail discussions of prisoner swaps and other attempts at a negotiated resolution to the case that appear to have commenced as early as the fall of 2009.

The reports are rich in on-the-ground detail — including the names and locations of the Haqqani commanders who ran the 200-man rotation used to guard the Idaho native — and present the most detailed view yet of what Bergdahl’s life over the past five years has been like. These real-time dispatches were generated by the Eclipse Group, a shadowy private firm of former intelligence officers and operatives that has subcontracted with the Defense Department and prominent corporations to deliver granular intelligence on terrorist activities and other security-related topics, often from challenging environments in far-flung corners of the globe.

…..Clarridge further told Fox News that by the end of 2010, he had furnished at least 13 of these detailed SITREPs, or situation reports, that his network generated about Bergdahl to Brig. Gen. Robert P. Ashley Jr., who in April 2010 was named director of intelligence, at the J-2 level, at CENTCOM. Clarridge said Eclipse SITREP # 3023, dated Aug. 23, 2012 — in which a member of the Haqqani network, said to be close to Bergdahl’s captors, reported that the American prisoner had declared himself a “mujahid” — was among the reports provided to Ashley.

…The documents obtained by Fox News show that Eclipse developed and transmitted numerous status reports on the whereabouts of the errant American soldier, spanning a period from October 2009, roughly three months after Bergdahl reportedly walked off his base in Afghanistan and fell into custody of the Haqqani network, up through August 2012.

….At one point — in late June 2010, after Bergdahl succeeded in one of his escape attempts — the Haqqani commanders constructed a special metal cage for him, and confined him to it. At other points, however, Bergdahl was reported to be happily playing soccer with the Haqqani fighters, taking part in AK-47 target practice and being permitted to carry a firearm of his own, laughing frequently and proclaiming “Salaam,” the Arabic word for “peace.”

Empire Strikes Back: Night Of Long Knives Is Nigh

Obamacare-Stormtroopers

The Ruling Class in Washington declare war on the Conservative/Tea party/Patriot movement and a Stalinist move to eradicate it has only just begun.

The Ruling Class in Washington, especially the MarxoFascist Democrats under Obama – HATE Conservative America.  The success of Tea Party Conservatives in the GOP like Senator Ted Cruz and Mike Lee in forcing the effort to defund Obamacare have earned the hatred and contempt of the Establishment Statists in both parties. The virulent hatred seems more pronounced from supposed GOP leaders like Mitch McConnell who considers Tea Party Conservatives “Traitors”, and Obama Democrats disguised as Republicans like John McCain – who blame Conservatives for the government shutdown while Obama himself refuses to negotiate.

Meanwhile Obama’s Brownshirts in the media and blogosphere are growing more shrill and threatening, advising and laying out subtle and not-so-subtle plans that Obama and the government simply declare Martial Law, arrest and even kill Conservatives and patriots.

New Republic suggests Obama use military against Tea Party

The liberal New Republic published an article that was a not-so-subtle suggestion that Barack Obama use military force against the Tea Party in the same manner Boris Yeltsin used it against hardliners in his government nearly 20 years ago.

“What is a president in a presidential constitutional republic to do when faced with an intransigent, bull-headed faction among his people’s representatives?” Julia Ioffe wrote.

She then gave a brief synopsis of the events that took place, saying Yeltsin faced a situation similar to what Obama now faces.

“Almost exactly 20 years ago, he dissolved parliament. The vice president and the speaker of the parliament dissolved Yeltsin’s presidency, and holed up with their supporters in the parliament’s headquarters, now known as ‘the White House,'” she said.

“Then Yeltsin did this to it,” she added immediately above a picture of a Russian armored vehicle in front of a flaming government building.

Although Ioffe didn’t explicitly say Obama should order the military to fire on members of the Tea Party, the implication was quite clear, and didn’t go unnoticed by readers of the New Republic.

My pal John Galt Fl has again given another great historical parallel about where we find ourselves as a nation and what may be just around the corner.

America’s Night of the Long Knives May Hit the Tea Party/Patriot Movement Any Day Now!

by John Galt

In Nazi Germany during the time period between June 30, 1934 to July 2, 1934 a politically driven mass murder was initiated by Adolph Hitler to eradicate the Sturmabteilung (SA), also known as the paramilitary “brown shirts.” While many viewed the bloodshed as a necessary step for the ascension of Hitler to supreme control of the nation by eradicating an unstable ally and all other political enemies including the Communists and Social Democrats, the reality is that this was the most blatant exhibition of the path that Germany was traveling right up until the start of World War II five years later.

Fast forward to this evening on the Glenn Beck Television Show via TheBlaze TV network. He opened the story with more details on the attempted coup at FreedomWorks which occurred shortly before the Presidential Election of 2012 on the day after Labor Day. The Washington Post andMother Jones magazine both covered the story in great detail after the attempted overthrow of Matt Kibbe but Mr. Beck was sworn to silence by the group until tonight when he broke his version of the story without naming the guilty party who was actually an old guard Republican insider apparently working undercover to usurp and destroy the group’s efforts to elect more of the typical Republican politicians who are representative of the “uniparty” as I call the combined Progressive movement illustrated by the alleged two party system.

The article from theWashington Post is more than happy to illustrate how a wealthy benefactor Richard J. Stephenson bought off former Republican Majority Leader Dick Armey to keep him away from the group for a healthy sum of money:

The coup lasted all of six days. By Sept. 10, Armey was gone — with a promise of $8 million — and the five ousted employees were back. The force behind their return was Richard J. Stephenson, a reclusive Illinois millionaire who has exerted increasing control over one of Washington’s most influential conservative grass-roots organizations.

Stephenson, the founder of the for-profit Cancer Treatment Centers of America and a director on the FreedomWorks board, agreed to commit $400,000 per year over 20 years in exchange for Armey’s agreement to leave the group.

I guess even mercenaries have a price to quit a war while they are unscathed and ahead.

Fast forward to the dangerous political games underway in Washington, D.C. this past two months where any political opposition to the Republican establishment, Democratic Party leadership, and of course President Barrack Obama. The Republicans have gone out of their way to attack, belittle, and block any political action to stop Obamacare and other aspects of the Progressive political agenda that both “parties” desire to put into the force of law. Attacks by Senator Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and Representative Peter King have said some particularly nasty things in private and in public to attack the likes of Senators Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Mike Lee (R-UT). Joined in these attacks is the power of not just the liberal extremist propaganda media, but now the allegedly conservative Fox News/Newscorp group of companies who have allowed the Karl Rove progressive movement to dictate and direct much of the political slant and reporting against any member of the Tea Party at their convenience.

Why the intense hatred for the Tea Party/Patriot movement which favor a return to Constitutional based rule within the framework as designed by the Founding Fathers? That is simple; it interferes with the ability to increase profit and power by removing control of the economy and political freedoms from the average citizen and into the vacuum known as the District of Columbia.

Sadly, it would appear that the intensely divisive disagreement over the budget, debt limit, and most importantly Obamacare is a trap not set by the Tea Party movement and its leaders but by the Democrat and Republican leadership to eradicate the call for freedom once and for all. The methodology for causing a political crisis so severe that action is taken against the Constitution minded politicians and groups is not important and will be discussed in an another article; this is more about the warning of what could happen and the results.

For anyone to think that a politician can not be framed is a naive thought process obtained from years of American innocence and belief in honor among the thieves of D.C. As the shutdown drags on, powers are in motion behind the scenes to usurp the likes of Cruz and Lee and if possible remove them from office on trumped up charges or by dishonoring them to force a resignation or worse if the powers that be had their preference. Imagine the power of the NSA, CIA, and IRS all combined to find and or create cause to entrap radio talk show hosts, bloggers, politicians, and 501c3′s which act as the face of the Tea Party and Patriot movements. Think about the consequences if after some sort of omnibus bill which covers all of the Progressive desires passes the House and Senate and signed into law by the President followed up with retaliation for daring to fight for the rights of the people they represent.

I fear that in the weeks ahead actions which will occur across the nation will drive many underground and imprison many others into the first true anti-American political detainees for the so-called “good of the people.” The charges, if any are disclosed, will be designed to humiliate all opposition and in some cases impart the guilt of being like the “nutcases in Waco” so as to show the population that their benefits, their free meal ticket was delayed and reduced as a result of a greedy few.  With the court system so heavily stacked against the Constitution at every level right up to the Supreme Court and a surveillance police state itching to unleash their power on the masses for their own good, I must warn all of my readers to be vigilant as the crisis drags onward and the real economic pain begins.

America’s night of the long knives may not involve the level of bloodshed that Nazi Germany’s did in the past, but the end result will be frighteningly the same minus the concentration camps and ovens; of course as others begin to resist further, construction of said camps and ovens is a step I would not put past the current leadership of both parties, especially as their personal fortunes are impacted by this growing Constitutional crisis and revenge becomes their goal instead of governance.

Messiah Obama Hates America, and Europeans Are Noticing

obamahateamerica

While the sycophantic Propaganda Arm of messiah Obama swoons over his 100 days of nothing but expansion into Socialism, Europeans – who normally disdain America at most turns – are speaking up to the fact that the self-absorbed narcissist usurping the office of the President, has no clothes.

Gerald Warner from the UK Telegraph asks Why does President Pantywaist hate America so much?

 

If al-Qaeda, the Taliban and the rest of the Looney Tunes brigade want to kick America to death, they had better move in quickly and grab a piece of the action before Barack Obama finishes the job himself. Never in the history of the United States has a president worked so actively against the interests of his own people – not even Jimmy Carter.

Obama’s problem is that he does not know who the enemy is. To him, the enemy does not squat in caves in Waziristan, clutching automatic weapons and reciting the more militant verses from the Koran: instead, it sits around at tea parties in Kentucky quoting from the US Constitution. Obama is not at war with terrorists, but with his Republican fellow citizens.

 

Considering the DHS report of Right Wing Extremism where Obama essentially declared half the voting public as “domestic terrorists”, it is stunning that Europe sees the fact that lines are being drawn by this regime, and the president is waging war on Americans who are not his devoted worshippers.  But worse yet, is the fact that outside of bowing to Saudi kings and going on a worldwide ‘America Sucks Tour’, Obama is actually engaged in tearing down the security of the country itself.

 

He cynically subordinated the national interest to his partisan desire to embarrass the Republicans. Then he had to rush to Langley, Virginia to try to reassure a demoralised CIA that had just discovered the President of the United States was an even more formidable foe than al-Qaeda.

“Don’t be discouraged by what’s happened the last few weeks,” he told intelligence officers. Is he kidding? Thanks to him, al-Qaeda knows the private interrogation techniques available to the US intelligence agencies and can train its operatives to withstand them – or would do so, if they had not already been outlawed.

So, next time a senior al-Qaeda hood is captured, all the CIA can do is ask him nicely if he would care to reveal when a major population centre is due to be hit by a terror spectacular, or which American city is about to be irradiated by a dirty bomb. Your view of this situation will be dictated by one simple criterion: whether or not you watched the people jumping from the twin towers.

Obama promised his CIA audience that nobody would be prosecuted for past actions. That has already been contradicted by leftist groups with a revanchist ambition to put Republicans, headed if possible by Condoleezza Rice, in the dock. Talk about playing party politics with national security. 

…President Pantywaist’s recent world tour, cosying up to all the bad guys, excited the ambitions of America’s enemies. Here, they realised, is a sucker they can really take to the cleaners. His only enemies are fellow Americans. Which prompts the question: why does President Pantywaist hate America so badly?

 

Almost as if in answer to the question, the UK London Times Online offers Obama wants to make America more like Europe

Barack Obama is unhappy with much that preceded his occupation of the White House, and not only his predecessor’s foreign policy, for which he is a serial apologiser. Pre-Obama domestic policy also displeases him: any prosperity the nation enjoyed, he says, was built on a foundation of sand.

…But the president has something more in mind and, with control of both houses of Congress, the power to change the way we live now… Top of the president’s change list is the way we consume energy. He believes our use of carbon-based fuels is causing the globe to heat up, with all the dire consequences conjured up by Al Gore as he sits in the library of his home, probably the largest single consumer of energy of any private residence in America. By one means or another, the president will make the use of oil, natural gas and especially coal so expensive that consumers will be forced to use less energy

…The president will also change the way Americans receive their healthcare…the president will raise taxes or force businesses to pay for insurance cover for all Americans. The result will be a system closer to that in Britain, with all its disadvantages – bureaucracy, rationing, waiting lists and a slower rate of innovation.

In the end, Americans will live in smaller houses, drive cars more like those to which Europeans are accustomed, and will rely on European-style healthcare. In short, we will be more like you, which is after all the social democratic model to which Obama wants to convert America.

While I can appreciate the analysis of the possibility Obama wants America to become more like Europe, I actually think Obama wants us to become more like Venezuela or Cuba – a true Marxist Revolutionary utopia – where the dictatorial power of a narcissist is demanded, and an entire people are enslaved to a hell on earth that their leaders call ‘heaven’.

At least that is what Hugo Chavez supposedly told Obama when he greeted him at the Summit of the America’s, wherein he declared, “those of us who want to build heaven here on earth, we will follow socialism.”

Obama of course, being the astute student of Saul Alinsky, is more at home with Marxist dictators like Chavez and Castro than with allies like the Queen of England or the Prime Minister of Israel.

It’s sad and frightening when you consider that Europe is noticing something terrifying about Obama, and yet like Europeans of the 1930s – Americans are blinded and oblivous, swooning and seig heiling the latest antics of the vaunted narcissist with a god complex.

France Says NIE Report Bogus; Has Evidence Iran Seeking Nukes

french-nie-bogus.jpg

As America turns harder to the Left, we are beset with stupidity, foolishness, outrageous lies, scandals, and endless political folly to our own detriment.

We are become like the Melba toast European Socialists and strive to be more like them. Even today, presumptive Liberal Republican nominee John McCain has suggested that America “listen to the views and respect the collective will of our democratic allies”. I don’t know what could be more stupid. If we listened” to these “democratic allies” Mr. McDufus – we would NOT be in Iraq OR Afghanistan taking the war to the Jihadists. We would be cowering with one appeasement policy after another while we are turned into a Muslim state from within as it is in Europe.

America has obviously lost it’s gonads as well as it’s brains and McCain might as well be John Kerry, Clinton or Obama, because they all state the same imbecillic nonsense in once capacity or another.

Meanwhile, the country Americans love to denounce; France – has suddenly jumped into the realm of common sense that America has abandoned, in order to state what many of us already knew the day the bogus NIE report was released by the CIA last December.

The French newspaper “Le Monde” says that it has documentation that Iran is still seeking to possess nuclear weapons and that last December’s NIW report that stated that Iran abandoned that quest – is bogus, and that it was a politically motivated report that did not give a true picture of the present nuclear program of the Islamic Republic of Iran.

Duh. Those of us in America with a brain left already figured that out the day the bogus report was released.

They say the documents detail discussions between top Iranian officials about their ongoing nuclear program.

The article is translated through Babelfish:

THE WORLD

At the time the Security Council of UNO recently adopted a third series of sanctions intended to force Iran to stop his nuclear program, (Le Monde) had access to documents attesting that Teheran continued a military nuclear program after 2003, as opposed to what a report/ratio of the national direction of the American information affirmed, published on December 3, 2007.

February 25, the assistant general manager of International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), the Finn Olli Heinonen, had presented evidence of the existence of this Iranian nuclear military program. A letter addressed during 2004 Gholam Reza Aghazadeh, to vice-president of the Organization of the atomic energy of Iran (AEOI), by engineer Mahdi Khaniki, one of the principal interlocutors of the IAEA and former ambassador of Iran in Syria, confirms its charges.

This document draws up an inventory of fixtures of the relations between Teheran and the inspectors of the agency of Vienna. Mahdi Khaniki recalls in particular that the inspectors of the IAEA – who act under the direction of Mr. Heinonen – required to see the contracts relating to the acquisition of spare parts entering the development of the centrifugal machines. Assembled in “cascade”, these centrifugal machines make it possible to enrich uranium, possibly until obtaining a military quality.

“At a meeting which proceeded on January 31, 2004 in the presence of Dr. Rohani (Hassan Rohani, principal negotiator of the Iranian nuclear program until the end of 2005), this one decided that these contracts were to be prepared formedlies to the wishes of the AEOI, so that they are ready to be provided with the IAEA.” “It is necessary to note, adds it, that the representative of the ministry for defense and assistance to the mées rearforces indicated at this meeting that the contracts had been written for a presentation (with the IAEA).”

“But, Mahdi Khaniki continues, of the parts of these contracts, which I myself saw with the ministry for defense, were crossed out black lines and the quantities did not appear; it thus seems that these contracts will cause more questions than those which should (normally) be presented at Agency (IAEA).” And to conclude: “Naturally, I asked as a preliminary to engineer Mohamadi to prepare the number necessary of contracts (corrected) and I hope that it already did it.”

For the specialists in the Iranian file, this letter represents an obvious proof of the implication of the Iranian ministry for defense in the nuclear file. What consolidates the suspicions on the military character of this program, while attesting efforts of the Iranians to dissimulate nature of it.

According to sources’ close to a service of information, this mail lies within the scope of the “Project 13”, whose heading is “project for the disappearance of the threats”.

Given what Ahmadinejad’s rhetoric has been in the past, is “project for the disappearance of the threats” in reference to his call for the annihilation of Israel and the punishment of America? The intents of Iran are clearly made, and I’m amazed at the deliberate level of ignorance we wish to place on this problem as the shouts grow louder against any kind of military action against Iran.

This project would have vocation to mislead the inspectors of the IAEA. The Research center in physics (PHRC) of Lavizan Shian was thus renamed “AMAD”, and its “departments” became “projects”, in order to scramble the tracks. In the second time, probably in 2006, name “AMAD” was also removed. Since, it is more made mention only of the “Center” to indicate the management of the military nuclear program.

The American services of information collected, in mid-December 2006, a conversation between two not identified civils servant held with the ministry for defense in Teheran and making state of divergences between persons in charge for the AEOI and the ministry for defense. One of the two interlocutors refers to the “Center” and underlines: “the AEOI was occupied of its interests, and its policy was at 180 degrees of ours. Currently, as for the CTBTO (Organization of the treaty of complete prohibition of the nuclear tests), I think that the ministry of defense must have the last word, parce that they (leaders of the AEOI) know that with the end of the account we intend to lead tests.” The doubt remains on the nature of these “tests”, but this reference reinforces the suspicions.

The information made public by Olli Heinonen, in February, in Vienna, contradicts a part of the conclusions of the report of the American services in December 2007. To explain this inconsistency, certain French diplomats evoke a “major dysfunction” within the American administration.

Other sources advance that, during 2007, the American services of information, as well as the Pentagon, worried about the climate sabre-rattler which reigned then in Washington, and about the risk to see president George Bush opening a new military face against Iran. The purpose of the report/ratio of December would then have been to cross short to the temptation of the American executive to resort to the force.

In other words, the purpose of the NIE report that was celebrated by every Democrat and mainstream media source in America, was to short circuit and circumvent any attack and war plans that were on the boards at the White House and Pentagon to deal with the Iranian nuclear threat.

I would call that treason, but Americans no longer like that word, unless someone dares question Global Warming – then it’s treason. But to undermine the country in favor of those who are sworn to our destruction – is today called patriotism by those that have racist pastors asking for God to damn the country or claim they were shot at by snipers in Bosnia.

Even the Treason Rag of Record, the New York Times is finding that it has to tapdance backwards on their celebration fo the NIE report they so loudly cheered and toasted.

NY Times Backpedaling on Iran NIE

March 7, 2008 – by Craig Karpel

The other day a friend who’s a distinguished journalist emailed me, “How about the New York Times’ FURIOUS backpedaling on the National Intelligence Estimate? They could have done the same analysis when it was released!”

At the gathering of ambassadors and arms-control experts at the International Atomic Energy Agency’s Vienna headquarters, newly obtained and declassified documents were revealed that are “not consistent with any application other than the development of a nuclear weapon.”

“France’s ambassador, François-Xavier Deniau,” the Times reported, “said questions raised by the Vienna meeting had opened a ‘new chapter’ in the West’s effort to keep Iran from acquiring nuclear arms.” The Times explained:

This confrontation is different from the long-running American-led campaign. Gone are the veiled threats of military action from the White House. The wind largely went out of that effort in December, when American intelligence officials surprised Western allies — and angered Bush administration hawks — with a report saying Iran had halted its nuclear weapons program in 2003.

Ah, so this confrontation was different, because the French, with their savoir faire, their joi de vivre, their déja vu all over again, were at last convinced that Iran — which has a space program whose covert goal is to put into orbit satellites capable of dropping nuclear weapons on any city on earth, such as Paris — must be subjected to a higher level of inaction, such as the toothless additional sanctions the Security Council authorized this week.

…But the NIE says Iran put an end to its secret nuclear weapons program, no?

Well, no.

Virtually all commentators have either misunderstood or misrepresented the NIE’s “We judge with high confidence that in fall 2003, Tehran halted its nuclear weapons program.”

The NIE goes on to say, “We assess with moderate confidence Tehran had not restarted its nuclear weapons program as of mid-2007, but we do not know whether it currently intends to develop nuclear weapons.”

So “Tehran halted its nuclear weapons program” doesn’t mean “Tehran ended its nuclear weapons program.” It means the program was suspended.

It inconceivable to me that the word “halted” wasn’t deliberately chosen as an alternative — misleading because of its ambiguity — to the unmistakably clear word that should have been used. The intelligence official(s) who signed off on using “halted” instead of “suspended” in that life-and-death sentence should be found and fired.

Moderate confidence — I wish I had that much confidence in our intelligence agencies.

….The Times has found itself in a position where it needs to account for having neglected to report last December that — as to the intelligence community’s assessment of when our most virulent and implacable enemy will be able to make nuclear weapons — between the 2005 NIE and the 2007 NIE “basically nothing had changed.” Is the paper of record now pleading myopia?

It will probably utilize the Hillary Clinton Method: “Those are what our memories of it are” defense and say they ‘mis-spoke’.

Or…they can employ the Obama Defense and simply deny their assertions were ever made to the contrary, and then throw their reporters under the bus to join Obama’s grandmother.

But actions speak louder than words, and France is acting on the belief that Iran is on the verge of nuclear weapons that it will use on it’s enemies. This has resulted in Tehran getting angry and issuing a warning to French President Sarkozy.

I think that speaks to the truth of Iran’s ready-to-premiere nuclear weapons ability.

Iran-Nuke Intel: Politics Trumps American Security in Bogus NIE Report

iran-nukeintel.jpg

My suspicions ran rampant the moment the media began singing hosanna’s of the NIE’s report that became the darling story of the Defeat At All Cost Brigades. The news since Ahmadinejad’s first address to the UN in 2005, where he subsequently announced that he had a “divine” epiphany of destroying America while we sat helpless, has been one confirmation after another from his regime that Iran is on the fast-track to nuclear weapons status.

As forthcoming and truthful as a CNN-hosted political debate, the NIE report has become the Hail Mary Pass for the Anti-war Left, who were screaming against any action against Iran’s nuclear program, or their madman’s proclamations of starting an Apocalypse to fulfill his nation’s supposed destiny in bringing back the 12th Imam.

But true to our suspicions – comes word that the NIE report was written by political hacks and their analysts – not by actual members of the spook community:

A highly controversial, 150 page National Intelligence Estimate (NIE) on Iran’s nuclear programs was coordinated and written by former State Department political and intelligence analysts — not by more seasoned members of the U.S. intelligence community, Newsmax has learned.

Its most dramatic conclusion — that Iran shut down its nuclear weapons program in 2003 in response to international pressure — is based on a single, unvetted source who provided information to a foreign intelligence service and has not been interviewed directly by the United States.

We discover that this is not new with political operatives running loose inside America’s national security operatus:

This carrot and stick approach has been the State Department’s preferred policy for the past 27 years, and has only strengthened the resolve of Iran’s leaders to continue defying the United States.

Of course as Timmerman’s article points out – the Democrats and the Ron Paul and Anti-war brigades are giddy as a schoolgirl in Spring over the NIE report, which really serves the interests of Ahmadinejad and his quest for destroying the Great and Little Satan. Jihadists from Bin Laden to Ahmadinejad understand just as Vietnamese General Giap noted in his memoirs, that America’s defeat lies not on the battlefield, but in securing the defeat of America at home by the anti-war forces, and striking a killing blow upon our retreat. It would seem that the NIE operatives are willing to work with the Democrats and the Anti-war Left to serve that defeat up on a Silver platter if it means attaining political power, regardless of the costs we may endure down the road. At best the NIE is completely clueless and has absolutely no idea what is really going on inside Iran’s nuke program outside of what they hope, and at worst – they do not care.

Iran could not wish for better freinds.

If anything is clear from the new National Intelligence Estimate, it’s that the U.S. intelligence agencies have no clear idea of what’s going on in Iran. The authors of the intelligence estimate concede that despite their earlier conclusions they can’t really say how far Iran’s nuclear program has advanced, or how close Iran is to developing atomic weapons. It’s irrefutable that Iran may have a nuclear weapon in the foreseeable future — whether in 2009, 2013 or 2015 is not so clear.

The only weapon the Democrats want to employ against our enemies in the Middle East is a white flag. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, as wobbly on Iran as on the Iraq war, says the Bush administration should be pushing for a “surge in diplomacy” with dealing with Iran.

Mr. Reid, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and other leading Democrats have a “can we talk?” message for the terrorists in Iraq — where Tehran, working through proxies, has been actively working to destabilize the country and kill and maim American soldiers. They’re eager to embarrass President Bush and denying sufficient funding to the military to do the job against al Qaeda terrorists for another year is the way they’re determined to embarrass him.

Par for the course it would seem, with an intelligence apparatus that has become nothing more than a domestic political tool that our enemies have learned how to use against us by appealing to the selfish motives of power that our intel services are consumed with. After all, Congress and the Left have steadily worked for decades to undermine and deconstruct our military and intelligence capabilities.

As this article details, our intelligence agencies have missed the mark from everything from the deposing of the Shah in 1979 to 9-11, due a history of political meddling and efforts to undermine and politicize the one tool we most desperately need in this world to stay one step ahead of our enemies. As the analysis of the article reveals:

Democrats, with occasional exceptions, have spent a quarter century of undermining, mismanaging and debunking our military and our intelligence capabilities (including attempts to abolish the CIA) …no fair-minded person can ignore that on several critical fronts our intelligence was wrong and our decisions based on false assumptions and erroneous information. The Bush team has likewise been slow to deal with homeland security issues satisfactorily, most notably border issues.

Much hay will continue to be made by the media and the Anti-war Left of this NIE report.

But one has to ask, since this is the SAME NIE group that gave “High confidence” info of Iran’s threshold of attaining nuke capability in 2005 – with documented evidence that Tehran was “Much further along than we thought” – were they lying or mistaken then, or are they lying now?

Remembering how shocked and surprised they all were when Pakistan and India suddenly tested nuclear bombs that our Intelligence had assumed were decades from being able to create – I can only assume from recent history that America will one day awaken to a similar suprise of Iran detonating a nuclear weapon, much sooner than we would have thought – and hopefully not from within an American or Israeli city.

Given Ahmadinejad’s promises of a “world without America” and “Wiping Israel from the map” – such a hope may be nothing but a fool’s hope at best.
