Obama Lies Again, Sends Boots on the Ground to Syria

The Obama administration with Barack at the helm broke the middle east , with the debacles in Iraq, Libya and Syria topping the list.  A list that you really won't see published because the media in America have always protected  Barack Obama and his administration and will until he leaves office.

 This administration armed Al Qaeda and ISIS in Syria, via a ratline of weapons from Benghazi and embarrassed themselves by drawing a mythical red line in the Syrian sand for Assad.  Syria, where this administration has said they will NOT put 'boots on the ground' 

Boots on the ground, like the troops Obama brought home from Iraq to keep his promise. Boots on the ground he quickly sent back in increasing numbers AFTER the election .  An election the media helped Obama win by aiding the cover-up of the attack on the ILLEGAL special mission compound in Benghazi, Libya.  Libya, a country that this administration helped overthrow and a country that is now a haven for ISIS and others. Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton built that.  

Did someone say ISIS ..... the non-Islamic JAYVEE TEAM ?

Now, from TheHill......
Pentagon denies mission creep in Syria deployment
By Rebecca Kheel - 04/25/16 03:54 PM EDT

The Pentagon pushed back Monday afternoon against criticism that deploying 250 troops to Syria constitutes mission creep in the fight against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS), saying the deployment is needed to meet current requirements. 
“These are specific capabilities ... specific needs right now as we talk to our partners,” Pentagon press secretary Peter Cook told reporters. “And including our assessment, talking to local leaders on the ground in Syria, these are decisions that we think makes sense to accelerate this campaign and to further enable those local forces.” 
"This is not a question of putting in thousands of American forces to wage this fight,” he later added. “We are looking to others to carry this fight out but to do what we can to support them.” 
President Obama announced Monday he had authorized sending another 250 troops to Syria. Previously, just 50 special operations troops were in the country. 
Monday’s news, coupled with the Pentagon’s announcement last week that about 200 more troops will be sent to Iraq, has led to lawmakers from both parties slamming the administration’s incremental increase in the number of troops being sent to the region. 
Republicans say more are needed, and Democrats argue the gradual increases risk drawing the United States deeper into the conflicts. 
Troops in Syria will not be on the front lines, Cook said, echoing the president.
Rather, their role will be to connect with, train and assist local forces, and provide intelligence from the ground, Cook said. 
The Pentagon expects the troops to act similarly to the original 50 special operations forces sent in, he added. 
“Force multipliers is the best way to look at this,” he said. “A small number of Americans with these kinds of capabilities can bring an enormous weight to bear in this fight and in support of these forces. And those forces who have come into contact and worked with U.S. forces, I think would attest to that.” 
In additional to special operations forces, the 250 troops will include medical and logistical personnel, Cook said. 
The administration settled on 250 on the recommendation of military commanders, Cook said.
Cook did not rule out the possibility of sending more troops to Iraq or Syria down the line.

“We're going to continue to look at every single opportunity we have, work with our local partners, to see how we can accelerate this campaign,” he said. “As you have seen from these specific — very specific — deployments and decisions, that what we're looking at here is specific capabilities.”
What a great article on mission creep, wasn't it ?  How could they talk about mission creep without ANY mention of saying there would never be boots on the ground ?

Take a look at the nuanced language used by the Nobel Peace prize winning anti-war President's team......

State shocker: Obama never promised 'no boots' in Syria
The State Department's top spokesman insisted Monday that the Obama administration has never promised a "no boots on the ground" strategy in Syria, even though President Obama himself has made the "no boots" promise several times over the last few years.  
"There was never this 'no boots on the ground,'" spokesman John Kirby said Monday. "I don't know where this keeps coming from." 
Surprised reporters noted that numerous senior officials, and even Obama himself, have said over and over that there would be "no boots" in Syria. Last year, USA Today put together a list of the 16 times Obama made the "no boots" pledge.
Kirby was pressed on the issue just hours after the Obama administration announced that 250 more special operations troops to Syria, in addition to the 50 that were sent in October.

Reporters said the 300 total troops seems to violate Obama's pledge. But Kirby said anyone who thinks the Obama administration is breaking its pledge doesn't fully understand what Obama and others meant when they said "boots on the ground." 
Specifically, Kirby said the administration has always meant "boots" to mean large-scale forces. 
Here is the list.......
16 times Obama said there would be no boots on the ground in Syria

Here is just ONE:
Interview with the PBS Newshour, Sept. 9, 2013 
"Tomorrow I'll speak to the American people. I'll explain this is not Iraq; this is not Afghanistan; this is not even Libya. We're not talking about — not boots on the ground. We're not talking about sustained airstrikes. We're talking about a very specific set of strikes to degrade his chemical weapons capabilities in terms of delivery."
Strange, we aren't talking about Libya either where there were no 'boots on the ground'  What did 'no boots on the ground mean in 2011 ? 

Robert Gates: No US 'boots on ground' in Libya
Robert Gates, the US secretary of defence, emphatically ruled out deploying American ground troops inside Libya as details emerged of CIA intelligence teams being sent to the country. 
Gates, testifying before the House of Representatives armed services committee, repeatedly denied that there were any plans for American soldiers to go into Libya. "Not as long as I am in this job," he said at one point. 
But he declined to comment on questions about CIA activities there, apparently making the distinction between intelligence teams sent into Libya and uniformed military personnel. "I can't speak to any CIA activities, but I will tell you that the president has been quite clear that in terms of the United States military there will be no boots on the ground," Gates said.
Boots on the ground means soldiers in uniform now and in 2011. This administration has been given a pass by its hypocritical supporters and encouraged to lie to the public because Obama and his administration will NEVER be held accountable by the fourth estate. The fourth estate are now little more than propagandists and  pamphleteers for the Democratic party

Did I forget to mention Barack Obama's war in Syria is illegal ..... ? ? ?

Barack Obama & NBA Star Push Importance of Mentor Program, Avoiding Mention of ....

Barack Obama always had a cozy relationship with the media to say the least.  Now the Obama is a lame duck he and his handlers have devoted even more time to his 'legacy' and the media is more than eager to help. The next story omits a very strange and important fact regarding Barack Obama. Can you spot it?
From The Hill ...
Obama, Steph Curry star in PSA on mentoring

President Obama appeared Saturday in a public service announcement with National Basketball Association MVP Steph Curry to highlight the importance of mentoring young children in their communities. 
The PSA aired on NBA Countdown on ABC and is available on the White House’s homepage. 
Curry’s Golden State Warriors celebrated a record-setting 73rd season win this week and are the favorites to repeat for the NBA title. 
In January, MENTOR: The National Mentoring Partnership launched the “In Real Life” campaign as a response to Obama’s “My Brother’s Keeper” initiative, a call to action to address opportunity gaps facing young boys and men of color, according to White House officials. 
Obama’s “My Brother’s Keeper” initiative has brought in celebrities including Nicki Minaj, Busta Rhymes, Common and Janelle Monae to discuss criminal justice reform in the U.S.
Administration sources say Obama’s initiative coordinates investments between businesses, foundations and community groups to create support programs that keep young people out of the criminal justice system and improve access to high education. 
Obama launched the program in 2014.

Ready ?  Why no mention of Barack Obama's mentor Frank Marshall Davis ? If mentors are so important, why is Barack Obama erasing this fact from his history ?  Why would the media still cover for the fact that Barack Obama's mentor was a card carrying communist ? Not even an honorable mention?

 We can pretend that the Democratic party hasn't moved very far left and the party and media will refuse to admit that the current president's influences included Saul Alinsky and Frank Marshall Davis. Let us now  pretend that Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clintoton aren't just old, white faces on the new red left?

Brussels Terrorist Suspect Featured in Swedish Documentary About Integration

The dhimmis in the west continue to push for the settlement of even more 'migrants' from Islamic countries such as Syria.  Islamic countries inhabited by citizens that are sworn enemies of our country and sworn enemies of all those who do not believe EXACTLY as they do. Citizens of Islamic countries that cannot be properly vetted. (  FBI Director: Gaps Remain in Syrian Refugee Screening Process )  A 'migration' that is really called a HIJRAH.  There are three more things you should know about Islam...

The Hijrah isn't immigration any more than it is a plan to integrate.........

Brussels terrorist suspect featured in Swedish documentary about integration
A Swedish man believed to be part of the Brussels and Paris terrorist network once starred in a documentary about successful immigration in Malmo. 
Osama Krayem, a 23-year-old Swede of Syrian origin, was arrested earlier this month with Mohamed Abrini – the Brussels terrorist known as “the man in the hat”. 
Krayem has been charged with “terrorist murders” and is thought to have been involved in preparations for the Brussels attack, as well as participating in the metro bombing

But Sweden’s Aftonbladet newspaper reported on Friday that Krayem featured in a 2005 documentary showing how sport helped immigrants integrate into the city. 
Entitled Without Borders — A Film About Sport And Integration, the film saw an 11-year-old football-mad Krayem discuss how the Malmo team had helped him settle into Swedish society..................

Feds Hand Over ‘Fast & Furious’ Docs as House Appeals for More

After years of legal wrangling and delays over the release of documents about a secret government program that this administration says they weren't even involved with..... Obama finally releases them. . .  The program was used to arm the Sinaloa Drug Cartel in Mexico with weapons from the United States. The violence in Mexico would be blamed on traceable American weapons and mentioned in a new push for an 'assault weapons' ban and more gun control...   The Hill reports....

Feds hand over ‘Fast and Furious’ docs as House appeals for more

By Julian Hattem - 04/08/16 05:31 PM EDT

The Obama administration on Friday handed House Republicans reams of documents about the controversial “Fast and Furious” gunrunning operation even as lawmakers appealed their case to seek additional records. 
After a long court case, the Department of Justice (DOJ) complied with a federal district judge's order that rejected the administration’s assertion of executive privilege over documents describing the botched operation.

Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah), chairman of the Oversight Committee, called the records “critical" to his panel's work. 
“The committee has a duty to understand and shine light on what was happening inside DOJ during the time of this irresponsible operation. Yet DOJ has obstructed our investigative work for years,” Chaffetz said in a statement Friday. 
“The committee, however, is entitled to the full range of documents for which it brought this lawsuit,” Chaffetz added. “Accordingly, we have appealed the District Court’s ruling in order to secure those additional documents.” 
Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), head of the Judiciary Committee, also called for the release of the remaining documents. 
“Given that even after years of stonewalling these are only a fraction of the documents that were subpoenaed by the House of Representatives, at this point, the usefulness remains to be seen," Grassley said in a statement. "I look forward to seeing what was actually produced, and what President Obama continues to refuse to be transparent about. It shouldn't have taken a lengthy court battle to get this far. The rest of the documents should be turned over so that the litigation can end and the American people can know the whole truth.” 
The release of documents to the House panel narrowly met the Friday afternoon deadline imposed by a January court order dismissing the Obama administration’s executive privilege argument. 
In a letter to the committee, Assistant Attorney General Peter Kadzik indicated that the Obama administration wanted to put the matter behind it. 
“[I]n light of the passage of time and other considerations, such as the department’s interests in moving past this litigation and building upon our cooperative working relationship with the committee other congressional committees, the department has decided that it is not in the executive branch’s interest to continue litigating this issue at this time,” Kadzik wrote. 
Separate from the ruling on the executive privilege claim, the committee appealed other aspects of Judge Amy Berman Jackson’s decision, which kept documents about the Fast and Furious operation under wraps for other reasons. 
Kadzik appeared to dispute the claim in his letter, saying that the material handed over by the Justice Department “fully satisfies the committee’s interest” in the issue. 
The decision to hand over documents amounts to an admission of failure for the administration, which had long insisted that many of the records were not eligible for Congress's oversight.
In 2012, House Republicans sued to obtain documents about the operation after first voting to hold then-Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt for refusing to hand them over.

The widely derided Fast and Furious program ran from 2009 to 2011 as a plan to track guns by purposely allowing them to move from low-level buyers up through Mexican drug cartels.

Many of the weapons eventually turned up in the hands of cartel members. One was at the site of a 2010 shootout that left a U.S. Border Patrol agent dead. Another was found in the hideout used by Sinaloa Cartel leader Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán before his arrest in January.

In fact, Obama always lies about Operation Fast and Furious too....
