Clapper Must Go

 

I was on a plane, so I missed the news that our Director of National Intelligence believes the Muslim Brotherhood to be a secular organization. 

He needs to be removed for saying that. That’s not an understandable human gaffe. It is an outrage. He’s not the Secretary of Agriculture, he’s the Director of National Intelligence. That is an outrage. 

Let me suggest to those still in doubt an experiment. Google the word Ikhwan. Look for the first results in Arabic. Run them through Google Translate.

    So let me get this straight …

    The same people who didn’t see this coming … now tell us that despite past experience, published evidence, and strategic likelihood … the Muslim Brotherhood is really benign.

    It’s just sort of like a bridge club now, is that it?

    On a related note, may I add an item to the “Let’s Cut the Budget” list?

    I’m sorry, it’s been two years, where was there a basis for an expectation of competency?

    As a Washingtonian, on any given day the worst metropolitan area for commuting, I respectfully request that we start abolishing departments immediately. If we could send just a quarter million of these people back where they came from, we would see much improvement in the daily commute.

    Save the environment, save the gas, ease DC congestion today!

    Democrats don’t seem to believe in a accountability. Since they are, for the most part, liars, knaves and magical thinkers, to hold their own accountable for foolish utterances or egregious incompetence would disqualify most of them from public careers

    In their world, competence – even coherence – matter little. What matters is whether one continues to be useful to the cause. From Barney Frank to Bill Clinton to Charlie Rangel to Eliot Spitzer, Democrats continue to belie F. Scott Fitzgerald’s famous observation that there are no second acts in American lives.

    This is nearly as dispiriting as that political general who said after the Fort Hood shootings: yeah, it’s sad and all those people got killed, but it would be even sadder if we lost our Diversity.

    Well, no, sir. No, it wouldn’t. Weighed in the balance.

    Still, without Clapper, I’ll have to get out of bed to turn out the lights. Such a hassle.

    This is the second time this dolt has publically displayed his ignorance. God only knows how many times he has done so off camera. It’s like saying “The Nazi Party wasn’t really about totalitarianism, we can work with these people.” Idiots..!

    Gomer Pyle could take his place and do a better job.

    I feel like there is a wisp of smoke blowing up my… oh, sorry. Where on earth did this fossil Clapper come from and how on earth did he become DNI? Clapper, Napolitano, the whole gang of phonies. Have they no shame?

    I’d almost like to see us take to the streets Egypt-style to demand the ouster of these nincompoops.

    He should of course be familiar with their Arabic writings, but even in their most cleaned-up for-Western-eyes op-ed in the NYT they don’t claim to be secular:

    “As our nation heads toward liberty, however, we disagree with the claims that the only options in Egypt are a purely secular, liberal democracy or an authoritarian theocracy. Secular liberal democracy of the American and European variety, with its firm rejection of religion in public life, is not the exclusive model for a legitimate democracy.

    In Egypt, religion continues to be an important part of our culture and heritage. Moving forward, we envision the establishment of a democratic, civil state that draws on universal measures of freedom and justice, which are central Islamic values. We embrace democracy not as a foreign concept that must be reconciled with tradition, but as a set of principles and objectives that are inherently compatible with and reinforce Islamic tenets.”

    It is the ultimate technocratic foible to put a gear head in a command position. Take Star Trek TOS for example. Let’s say Kirk is shifted to Admiral and they tap Scotty to command the ship. The Enterprise now rules in the areas of systems uptime, innovative engineering, and bar fighting. Of course, she also started at least a dozen wars.

    In today’s military, the doctrine and support staffs provide a buffer that assures that whoever wears the stars, the machine rolls on.

    In a top policy position like DNI, Obama’s appointees Blair and Clapper both have struggled with that “vision” thing, and apparently with Obama’s views in the area. Blair was fired when Obama became unhappy with a treaty negotiated by Blair with the French at the last minute.

    DNI is a relatively young position, and some creativity and vision is a requirement still to perform successfully.

    Clapper’s office has issued a clarification, stating that what he meant to say was that they are “largely secular in orientation“. Soooo, it’s all good.

    For the record, Clapper was a Lt. General from the Air Force and his appointment was strongly objected to. By both some Democrats and Republicans. Powerline had a post about that.

    A Lt. General is three stars; that’s a Division level command, the equivalent of being the head of the 82nd Airborne Division. This is one level below somebody that is given command of an entire theater during a war, such as Franks, or Powell. That’s how high this guy rose through the ranks, before retiring, then becoming DNI. He’s a complete technocrat and political butt-kisser and he rose to three stars.

    Air Force. From 30,000 feet, or perhaps from space, or more likely, missle silos, the Ikwhan may appear secular.

    Maybe they should change their name to the Largely Secular Brotherhood so rubes like me don’t get confused.
