Flynn out – Wasn’t what Kerry and Pelosi did to Bush much worse?

The Dems get their first scalp with Flynn. All red meat. They are hanging it on some remote law from 1799. The Logan Act – which prohibits private citizens from negotiating with foreign governments having a dispute with the U.S. That act was passed in 1799 and has never been adjudicated, so prosecution could be difficult.

Forget the private citizen bit. We were in transition in leadership. Wasn’t it much more damaging for Pelosi and Kerry as Senators to undermine the Bush administration’s policy on Assad?

During the Bush Administration, the Dems did what they could to undermine his policy in attempting to isolate Syria. From Kerry to Pelosi, they defied him and went waltzing over to meet with their “friend” that they were sure was going to be our go to guy in the Middle East. A butcher with massive amounts of chemical weapons, no mind. What is it with all of these Progressives and their infatuation with dictators?

FLASHBACK: Pelosi Visits Assad In Syria, Tells Him “We Came In Friendship, Hope, And Peace”… April 5, 2007:

DAMASCUS, Syria (AP) — House Speaker Nancy Pelosi held talks with Syria’s leader Wednesday despite White House objections, saying she pressed President Bashar Assad over his country’s support for militant groups and passed him a peace message from Israel.

In 2007, Nancy Pelosi, over strong objections from the  State Department, visited Syria, and said, “The road to Damascus is a road to  peace.” Senator John Kerry predicted that “Syria will change as it embraces a  legitimate relationship with the United States.” Read more:  Newsbusters

The Washington Free Beacon in an article titled “An Affair to Remember: John Kerry Hearts Bashar al-Assad” called Kerry the Syrian dictator’s “highest-ranking apologist in American politics”:

Kerry thwarted efforts during the Bush administration to diplomatically isolate Syria after the administration’s own efforts to engage the regime ended in failure in 2003.

Kerry served as the Obama administration’s envoy to Assad, leading a delegation to Syria just days after Obama’s inauguration. There he listened to Bashar Assad lecture him that Washington must “move away from a policy based on dictating decisions.”

Tiny Stone Mountain Georgia will receive more Syrian refugees than LA and NYC combined

A little town in Georgia with a population of over 75 percent African American is a new dumping ground for “the tired, the poor” refugees from the sewers of Africa. A poverty rate of 22 percent for the town, ensures these new arrivals will find no work and mounting discontentment. A breeding ground for a new generation of unhappy misfits who will grow more angry over time. We know where this is going don’t we? Will someone ask why they are being dumped here?

Stone Mountain, Georgia — a city with just over 6,000 residents and a poverty rate well above the national average — has resettled more Syrian refugees than Los Angeles and New York City combined.

Since October 1 (the start of the fiscal year), 72 Syrian refugees have been placed in Stone Mountain, State Department data shows. Los Angeles has resettled just 45 Syrian refugees, while NYC has only resettled nine.

Syrians aren’t the only refugees placed in Stone Mountain this year. Since October 1, 299 refugees have been resettled in the Georgia town.

The largest group of refugees are from the Democratic Republic of the Congo, which had 83 refugees placed in Stone Mountain.

Another 36 refugees came from Burma, 26 came from Somalia, 21 from the Central African Republic, 18 from Eritrea, 13 from Bhutan, eight from Ethiopia, seven from Afghanistan, six from the Ivory Coast, four from Iraq, two each from Pakistan and Iraq, and one refugee from Sudan.

As previously reported by The Daily Caller, the vast majority of Syrian refugees resettled in Virginia have been placed in low-income high-poverty cities, far away from the wealthy D.C. suburbs.

Delusional Panetta wants Syrian Military to stay, S. Power confused

President Obama’s team thought the Iranian regime might abandon dictator Bashar Assad over his use of chemical weapons in Syria’s civil war. No doubt this keen thinking originated from Iranian born Valerie Jarrett who has admitted her family still has ties to Iran. But if this is not enough for my Sunday Special, my readers get a bonus report.

Back in August of 2012, former U.S. Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta says that when Bashar al-Assad loses his grip on power, he wants the Syrian military to remain in place. I am sure Kerry no doubt has an even happier ending.

Depraved and Delusional formerUS Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta tells CNN that the US must make sure that the ruthless genocidal hated Baathist Alawite sect-packed Secret Police Security Forces stay in power after the inevitable overthrow of Dictator Bashar Assad.

Many of us have been looking for what the ending would be in Syria after we dispatched another head of a Middle East country. I happened on a Panetta video whose is equally clueless regarding the administration’s best wishes for a happy ending. So first, lets chug down Samantha Power and move on to Leo Panetta.

Obama team thought Iran would not tolerate Bashar Assad’s use of WMDs

Samantha Power, the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, hoped that a team of UN investigators — many of whom, presumably, have a longstanding relationship with Iranian leaders — could write a report that would convince Iran to abandon its ally at the behest of the United States.

“We worked with the UN to create a group of inspectors and then worked for more than six months to get them access to the country on the logic that perhaps the presence of an investigative team in the country might deter future attacks,” Power said at the Center for American Progress as she made the case for intervening in Syria.

“Or, if not, at a minimum, we thought perhaps a shared evidentiary base could convince Russia or Iran — itself a victim of Saddam Hussein’s monstrous chemical weapons attacks in 1987-1988 — to cast loose a regime that was gassing it’s people,” she said.

[565] CNN_ Interview with Defense Secretary Panetta on post-Assad Syria [AR_EN_FR_RU].flv
============================
U.S. Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta says that when Bashar al-Assad loses his grip on power, he wants the Syrian military to remain in place.

Here is some real clear critical thinking. I am just sure this is how it will go.

“I think it’s important when Assad leaves – and he will leave – to try to preserve stability in that country. And the best way to preserve that kind of stability is to maintain as much of the military, the police, as you can, along with the security forces, and hope that they will transition to a democratic form of government. That’s a key,” Panetta told CNN’s Pentagon Correspondent Barbara Starr in an exclusive interview in Tunis, Tunisia, Monday. (More of this Hopey, changey, thingey).

He said the United States shouldn’t allow a repeat of the Bush administration’s moves in Iraq, where it disbanded the Iraqi military.

“It’s very important that we don’t make the same mistakes we made in Iraq,” he said. “And that, particularly, when it comes things like the chemical sites. They (the Syrian military) do a pretty good job of securing those sites. If they suddenly walked away from that, it would be a disaster to have those chemical weapons fall into the wrong hands – hands of Hezbollah or other extremists in that area.”

Yep, Leon, that is what a whole lot of us are thinking.
