McCain, Rogers: Obama's policy of 'disengagement' led to attack on US posts


www.foxnews.com

Capitol Hill Republican leaders said Sunday the Obama administration’s foreign policy of “disengagement” in the Middle East led to the attacks on U.S. posts in the region.

Michigan Rep. Mike Rogers and Arizona Sen. John McCain, the ranking Republican on the Senate Committee on Armed Services, suggested President Obama pulling troops out of Afghanistan and Iraq, while offering less than total support for Israel’s effort to stop Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons, has left an exploitable void in the region.

This build up of criticism of the Obama adminstration has been on the cards for months.

To the 'awake', they will see it for what it is- nothing more than political charades to manipulate the American people.

People are being conditioned and prepared for the next phase of the agenda-



He argued Obama has made no significant foreign policy speech since the one in Cairo, Egypt, in 2009 and acknowledged the region poses “difficult” problems -- including the absence of stabilized, democratic governments to replace the recently deposed dictatorships.

“But you cannot solve (the problems) by stepping back,” Rogers said. “It has to be a combination of showing strength and showing up.”



So we are seeing problems emerge and being indoctrinated to see Obama's lack of foreign policy as the reason 'bad stuff is happening'.

Naturally, the general public become manipulated into thinking an aggressive foreign policy is the better option.

The agenda is blatant because the article then predictably moves onto Iran-



He also questioned why the United States appears to be in an “open fight” with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu about how far the country will go to help stop Iran from achieving nuclear capability.

“Shouldn't we be telling Iranians that there are lines they can't cross?” he asked.



Recent middle east tensions are a 'warning' of what happens when the US adminstration sits back and does nothing.

It is preparation for the justfication to attack Iran- the agenda being that Obama has left America exposed, the idea is being planted into the minds of the American people.

Obama is just playing a role in a game- the likes of McCain and Rogers playing their role in further undermining the policy of non aggression.

Only yesterday, Benjamin Netanyahu was making his case for setting up a red line against Iran. The public are being fed a game of political charades and when the 'justification for action against Iran comes', Romney and Netanyahu will have the 'solution'.

I agree with everything that you said and I find it comforting that you see it too. It scares me that so many are so easily manipulated.

So they ask for Obama to bring troops home, then blame the drawdown as the cause for the violence.

I certainly dont think that McCain is a bad guy, but this is a pretty low blow. He needs to shut his hole.

McCain is squarely on my douche list. I can list numerous examples but the one that frosts my cake the most was his Spring 2008 pronouncement that 'the economy is fundamentally sound' during a period when it was coming apart at the seams.

Its upside down world.

The West is attacking, invading and occupying their countries then citing the cause of the problem as not having killed enough people...

If it were not for the starch in Obamas shirts I dont know how he would be able to stand upright.

To go from grass roots organizer to state senator to President all within a very short time frame (when compared to political careers of others on both sides) are we really that surprised his tenure has been a disaster?

While people complained about Bush and his all or nothing approach to terrorism Obama has taken it farther by applying it to just about everything he touches. The latest position by the administration that these attacks are isolated and spontanious does nothing but reinforces the view that he is out of touch and only wishes to see what he wants while ignoring the rest.

Can anyone remember when the actual truth came out of Obamas mouth on anything since he took office? Can anyone remember when the PResident took responsibility / accountibility for his actions instead of blaming them on someone else?

The issue at hand really isnt about Obama at all, its about McCain and Rogers being twits. Bring troops home, dont bring troops home. Stop killing people, dont stop killing people. What do they want? Can people make up their mind already?

Ha, ain't that the truth? What do these twits really want? The truth is they will never be happy. If you can't stand Obama there is nothing the man can do to make you happy. Personally, I don't think it matters much. The agenda is the same no matter who is in office. This crap about "Obama doesn't help Israel" is laughable considering the Israeli defense minster was interviewed recently and stated Obama has done more than any modern president to aid Israel.

Really, what do people want? I don't think they even know. I'll tell ya what I want-All these chickenhawks can go fight their own wars.

Don't worry, many more see it


Once one can see the reality of American politics and that their intention is to deceive and manipulate public opinion, that they are nothing more than puppets, then we can see through their agendas quite easily.

You do realize you are talking about a man who was "almost" your president... except for the 2008 elections.

From what I can gather, by listening to the sources so far, this whole thing must have been set into motion several weeks or even months ago.

Am I the only one who sees, what appears to be, a possible connection between the timing of this video and the raids upon our embassies. Some of the foriegn leaders are saying it would have taken some time to plan out these attacks and it certainly would have taken some time to make the video and they both happened very close together.

Yes, there is a conspiracy under every rock !!

I don't know this to be absolutely true, but it could stand a little more investigation.

I would like to know just who would gain and who would lose from these things happening at the same time?

Oh, I know, the vid sparked it all. But who could gain from an increase in mid-east turmoil ??

Exactly, but it doesn't stop the fact that Americans will be watching this thinking 'Obama has let all this happen, maybe we should be more forceful in the region and send our forces to stop nasty evil Iran. I know, let's vote for Romney, he will protect us!'

Propaganda for the masses.

It's planned to undermine Obama's 'policy' and create more unrest in the region.

'Just look what happens when Obama does nothing! Vote Romney now and bomb Iran already!'

Their plan is ticking along at a good pace.

The jewel of disinformation, youtube, led to the attack on US in Eastern Block
countries cause some local power wants control to jack up the price of oil and
take over the world like the Illuminati and the US tries to do but they know the
energy secret and world wide money secret: oil.
Youtube disinformation on free energy has not fooled any one and the rebels
are going for the oil. Bush tried to sell the Taliban on a deal but they wanted
too much.

WRONG

Running around haphazardly hacking up all your neighbours gardens, while refusing to just stay home and care for your own caused "attacks on the US"

I had a deer roam into my fenced yard last week and it took out all my tomato plants. What plans do you think I have for that deer? How do you think I feel about it?

"disengagement" LOL ..... talk about feeding the sheeple a tiny picture. Pathetic.

So is it your fault for failing to take precautions against deer?

Is it the deers fault for going into an area it should not have been and causing damage?

Or is it the governments fault for adopting a policy that allowed the deer population to explode and go unchecked?

By the way disengagement, as well as appeasement, does not work.

Yes not wanting to constantly be at war is what caused more war. When is someone going to stand up to these warmongers and tell them to shut their mouth? I honestly believe that if McCain would have been elected, we would be at war with the entire world right now. I'm really sick of these politians that want to talk big behind a desk but would never put on the gear and do the job only they want done themselves. No, continue to send our kids to war while your spoiled brats rule over us Caesar style.
