What You Aren’t Supposed To Know About America’s Closest Ally, Qatar

Free Republic

The Qataris, and their ruling al-Thani family, are slavers, narcotics traffickers, and financiers of international terrorism. They also happen to be America’s closest ally under Obama.

When analyzing the foreign policy interventions of the Obama administration with respect to the Middle East, it is hard to reconcile their respective approaches Libya (2011) and Iraq (2014).

In 2011, Obama justified the military action to remove Muammar Gaddafi on the basis of anticipated genocide by the Gaddafi regime. Speaking at the National Defense University on March 28, 2011, Obama explained “I refused to wait for the images of slaughter and mass graves before taking action.” In October of that year, Gaddafi was discovered by Libyan rebels, many whom were Islamists linked to al Qaeda, sodomized, and summarily executed. It is worth recalling that Gaddafi had been, since shortly after 9/11/2001, effectively an American ally, if an imperfect one, in the war on terror.

Yet following the fall of Mosul to ISIS in June 2014, and the subsequent exposure by the press of their horrific war crimes, the Obama administration acted strangely inert. The execution of defenseless Iraqi soldiers shocked the world, and ISIS (now known as the Islamic State, or IS) made no effort to hide their crimes: indeed, they proudly advertise them on YouTube. Despite the visual evidence of systematic war crimes and mass murder, Obama announced that he would not provide air support for the Iraqi Army. Under the supervision of the Obama administration, Iraq has gone from relatively stable following the 2007 “surge,” to being occupied in large part by a genocidal army that targets Christians, Shiites, and Muslims.

The most obvious way to explain this is through the lens of America’s closest ally these days, the tiny Middle Eastern peninsula in the Persian Gulf: Qatar.

The Obama Endgame Emerges

American Thinker

The events of the past few weeks on America’s southern border bring into clearer focus the Obama pledge to fundamentally transform America. By opening our borders to illegal immigrants, and pardoning those illegals already here as he plans through executive order, Obama will create millions of new citizens within a few years to help him transform America into a multicultural vacationland for the world’s footloose homeless with free food, housing, education, entertainment, and healthcare as drawing cards.

Who will pay for this paradise? The American Middle Class, mostly Republicans, of course, whom Obama despises as narrow-minded clingers.  And why not? While Republicans and conservatives have been busily painting Obama as weak and indecisive internationally, Obama has in turn sized them up as even weaker. As it turns out Obama’s seeming impotence was only a head feint. He actually couldn’t care less about events in Eastern Europe, Asia, or the Middle East. Most of the so-called Obama administration scandals such as Solyndra, Benghazi, Fast and Furious, IRS, VA, etc. were likewise also uninteresting to him. The Obama prize was always the southern border with its endless supply of faithful, dependent voters.

With the open border drawing millions of loyal new voters into the Democratic Party, liberals will have no problem holding the White House and perhaps also sweeping the House and Senate in 2016. Obama could hand-pick his successor who would ram through radical redistributionist legislation and America’s transformation would be complete.

Conservative Tribune

As both a direct and indirect result of President Barack Obama’s foreign policy, world stability has ebbed significantly in recent years.
