Benghazi, David Petraeus, Michael J. Morell and the Destabilization of the Obama Administration

Long predicted in these quarters, the destabilization of the Obama administration is in full swing. With the GOP charging that the Obama administration was covering-up warnings about terrorism in Libya, it now emerges that it was now-acting CIA director Michael J. Morell who deleted the references, in opposition to the now-deposed David Petraeus.


Reflections on the Petraeus Affair

As was the case with Bill Clinton, no sooner does Obama win reelection than his administration is involved in an expanding sex scandal, which may well undermine his Middle Eastern policy, as well as handing political to the GOP. Replacing David Petraeus–temporarily and perhaps permanently–is Michael J. Morell, who briefed George W.Bush on intelligence matters. Morell was with Bush on the morning of 9/11.


I Told You So: Update on the “Muslim Brotherhood Spring,” The “Hacktober Surprise” and the Destabilization of Lee Harvey Obama

As forecast in the For The Record series dealing with WikiLeaks and morphing into the “Muslim Brotherhood Spring,” the GOP is tarring Barack Obama with the “soft on terrorism” brush–casting him as the second coming of Jimmy Carter. Attacking the Obama administration for not having prevented the lethal attack on the Libyan embassy, the GOP is explicitly comparing Obama’s actions with Carter’s behavior during the Iranian hostage crisis. The available evidence suggests that the “Muslim Brotherhood Spring” is a covert operation–the outgrowth of a George Bush State Department reassessment and rapprochement with the Muslim Brotherhood, as well as an approach made to the Egyptian April 6 movement during the closing days of Dubya’s second term.
