Round and round the Mulberry Bush

I saw an article last week about “missing” foreign personnel. Hmmm- I will let you read it

17 Afghan Soldiers Went

AWOL from U.S. Military


American authorities are on the lookout for at least nine Afghan soldiers who remain at large in the United States since deserting a U.S. Air Force base in Texas, where they were stationed to study English.

The soldiers have “all access” credentials for U.S. military facilities,”

Isn’t that just grand? They have “all access” to military bases.  Here is more

Fox News has a better, more detailed article here.

The Afghans were attending the Defense Language Institute at Lackland Air Force Base in Texas. The DLI program teaches English to military pilot candidates and other air force prospects from foreign countries allied with the U.S.

“I can confirm that 17 have gone missing from the Defense Language Institute,” said Gary Emery, Chief of Public Affairs, 37th Training Wing, at Lackland AFB. “They disappeared over the course of the last two years, and none in the last three months.”

I am well aware of the joint training “opportunities” afforded our “partners” around the world. Lackland has a HUGE number of the types. These people are really starting to piss me off! do the joint training on their soil- not ours! And that they admit these guys went missing over the course of two years and we knew nothing about it sends my blood pressure through the roof!

Today Pamela left me a tip in the thread below. How;s this get you?

‘Simultaneous incidents’ lead to lockdown at NJ Navy base where Hindenberg exploded in 1937

Lakehurst merged with the Army’s Fort Dix and McGuire Air Force Base last year as part of a joint base initiative to make the military’s first three-branch base.

We may never know what prompted the lock down. Interesting to me that the base is home to the Naval Air Engineering Center. Any chance these folks have anything to do with engineering a fix for the problem in the Gulf?

Or maybe some of the missing Afghani’s turned up? After all- the Afghan AWOLs were pilots learning English and the article on the shutdown says

one of its main missions relates to the equipment used to launch aircraft from carriers at sea.

Sorry- I don’t believe in coincidents.

Our bases need to be for military personnel ONLY and these missing potential Islamofascist terrorist need to be rounded up ASAP!

Can Obama qualify for security clearance???

3. The Concern. An individual must be of unquestioned allegiance to the United States. The willingness to safeguard classified information is in doubt if there is any reason to suspect an individual’s allegiance to the United States.

4. Conditions that could raise a security concern and may be disqualifying include:

(a) involvement in, support of, training to commit, or advocacy of any act of sabotage, espionage, treason, terrorism, or sedition against the United States of America;
(b) association or sympathy with persons who are attempting to commit, or who are committing, any of the above acts;

(c) association or sympathy with persons or organizations that advocate, threaten, or use force or violence, or use any other illegal or unconstitutional means, in an effort to:
(1) overthrow or influence the government of the United States or any state or local government;
(2) prevent Federal, state, or local government personnel from performing their official duties;

(3) gain retribution for perceived wrongs caused by the Federal, state, or local government;

(4) prevent others from exercising their rights under the Constitution or laws of the United States or of any state.

Certainly Obama has an association with a person, Bill Ayers of Weather Underground fame, who has, by Ayers own admission, committed acts of sabotage. Mr. Ayers is unrepentant and states he wishes he had set more bombs. Mr. Obama worked for the Wood Fund, where Ayers serves on the board.

The activities documented by caucus workers in Texas and posted in videos on You-Tube are good examples of item 4, preventing others from exercising their rights. Check out the videos of a caucus goer posted on you-Tube- there are MANY MANY more!

The next deals with
6. The Concern. Foreign contacts and interests may be a security concern if the individual has divided loyalties or foreign financial interests, may be manipulated or induced to help a foreign person, group, organization, or government in a way that is not in U.S. interests, or is vulnerable to pressure or coercioon by any foreign interest. Adjudication under this Guideline can and should consider the identity of the foreign country in which the foreign contact or financial interest is located, including, but not limited to, such considerations as whether the foreign country is known to target United States citizens to obtain protected information and/or is associated with a risk of terrorism.
7. Conditions that could raise a security concern and may be disqualifying include:

(a) contact with a foreign family member, business or professional associate, friend, or other person who is a citizen of or resident in a foreign country if that contact creates a heightened risk of foreign exploitation, inducement, manipulation, pressure, or coercion;

Reuter’s has a story about the Kenyan government spokesman charging Raila Odinga and his supporters with ethnic cleansing.

Now what does this have to do with Obama?? Odinga claims he is Obama’s cousin! Check out Odinga’s election web-page and you tell me if you see any similarities to Obama’s (hint” look at the bottom of the page- notice the word “change??”)

Do you think that Odinga or other members of Obama’s Kenyan family will try to pressure or induce Obama to support Odinga’s policies? Obama campaigned for Odinga (Odinga lost and then claimed the election was rigged. Shades of things to come her in th U.S. maybe?)
Not enough for you- how about an Obama relative in China??? You know, the China we owe huge amounts of money to, the China that is being protested for their treatment of Tibet?
Check out this bit from a NY times piece by Roger Cohen

“My understanding is that this half brother living in China is Mark. He’s the son of Obama’s father and an American woman named Ruth, whom Obama Sr. met while at Harvard in the 1960s and brought back to Kenya.

That was after his marriage with Obama’s mother in Hawaii ended. Another son from the union with Ruth, called David, was killed in a motorcycle accident. In all, Obama Sr. fathered eight children by four women.”

Apparently this Mark studied physics at Stanford and now works in China.

Geez Louise- I am just an average American and it took just a few simple Google searches to find this stuff! Can the U.S. government not do its job??? For crying out loud, the man is a walking security risk and he wants to be PRESIDENT???

I hope common sense breaks out really soon!
