"The Obama Administration Sees The CIA As The Enemy, Not The Terrorists"

Regarding Attorney General Holder appointing a special prosecutor to investigate CIA operatives, Jennifer Rubin notes:

The decision, one of monumental significance to our intelligence community and national security, is announced while the president is closeted away in Martha’s Vineyard. This is political courage and transparency? Really, Obama is president—not Eric Holder—and should have the nerve to come forward, explain his decision, and tell us why we should not interpret his words to those assembled earlier at Langley as bald-faced lies. Then he pledged to the CIA employees that he intended to look forward, not back, and expressed that he would “need them more than ever.” Then he was vowing to have their backs. Now he and his attorney general have stabbed those same agents in the back.

As a colleague expressed to me yesterday, “this is a form of madness.” The Obama administration sees the CIA as the enemy, not the terrorists.

But of course. As David Horowitz wrote last week, “For Alinsky and his Machiavellian radicals, politics is war.”

And speaking of which, the Jawa Report has your “Left Wing Extremists Bomb Plots of the Day”:

Wow today we have two, count em two…. left wing extremists blowing stuff up stories.

First Via Gateway Pundit:

What a shock. A local top Democratic strategist was involved in a bombing last year that seriously injured a St. Louis attorney. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported:

A federal search warrant obtained by the Post-Dispatch connects a former Democratic campaign strategist to a Clayton bombing last year that seriously injured an attorney.

And via The Statesman:

A Texas woman faces trial this month in Austin on charges she threatened to kill a government informant who infiltrated an Austin-based group that planned to bomb the Republican National Convention in St. Paul, Minn., last fall……Crowder and McKay were part of a group of activists that had gone to the Twin Cities to take part in street demonstrations. The FBI had infiltrated the group with Darby. Crowder and McKay built eight of the gasoline firebombs but didn’t use them, a fact law enforcement officials credited to Darby.

Members of the Austin protest community heaped scorn on Darby, saying he had betrayed longtime friends and colleagues.

These leftys are so dedicated to open a peaceful public discourse.

Good thing the otherwise extremely liberal president has never associated with such figures
