What has Obama Wrought – The Fallicy of the Arab Spring (A Timeline)

When President Obama assumed office, the US’s relationship with Libya was getting stronger. Diplomatic relations were restored with Libya in 2006 by President Bush. President Obama was photographed shaking hands with Muammar Qaddafi at a G-8 summit on 2009, and Secretary of State Clinton stated in a 2009 speech that Libya was a country that had altered its behavior in response to US interaction instead of isolation.

The timeline presented here is far from complete.  It is intended as a capsulized view of what this President has enable through his unconstitutional support of the Arab Spring.

Obama – March 2, 2011 “Muammar Gaddafi has lost the legitimacy to lead and he must leave”

On March 19, 2011 President Obama announced that he was authorizing the use of force against Libya under the authority of the UN resolution (Resolution 1973) authorizing a no-fly zone.

On March 21, 2011 President Obama sent a letter to Congress informing them of the actions he was taking in Libya and explaining that authority to conduct these actions was granted to him as part of his foreign policy powers as President.  A UN Resolution took precedence over the Constitution and the War Powers Resolution ignoring the Rule of Law and the Separation of Powers..

On March 28, 2011 President Obama gave a major address to bring the American people up to date with the events in Libya.  The day after the policy speech, President Obama was interviewed by CBS. He stated in that interview that he was ruling out arming the rebels.  That same day that President Obama stated that arming the rebels was not out of the question, Secretary of State Clinton was at a meeting in London with a leader of the rebel group from Libya and numerous other nations. She stated that in the US’s interpretation that the UN Resolution gave the US the right to arm the rebels.

On March 30, 2011 Reuters reported that President Obama had signed an intelligence finding on Libya. This finding authorized the CIA to work covertly in Libya towards the goal of assisting the rebels. It is not known exactly when he signed that order or what it authorized the CIA to do.

In early  April of 2011, Ayman al Zawahiri, al Qaeda’s new chief, released a video saying “I want to say to our Muslim brothers in Libya, Tunisia, Algeria, and the rest of the Muslim countries, that if the Americans and the NATO forces enter Libya, then their neighbors in Egypt and Tunisia and Algeria and the rest of the Muslim countries should rise up and fight both the mercenaries of Qaddafi and the rest of the NATO.”

On April 25, 2011 President Obama ordered that $25 million in aid be sent to the Transitional National Council. The money was to go towards surplus government goods to support Libyan opposition groups. The order was issued as a memo to Defense Secretary Robert Gates and Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton.

May 2, 2011, the announcement is made of Osama bin Laden’s death by US Special Forces.  The timing of this act is called into question as it fires up al Qaeda hostilities against the US during the Arab Spring uprising.  It is then disclosed that Obama announced the bin Laden raid before intelligence picked up from bin Laden’s compound could be fully exploited; that the use of covert “stealth” helicopters on the raid was publicized; the name of the secret unit that executed the raid –SEAL Team Six — was made public putting them and their families at risk; the name of the Pakistani doctor recruited by the CIA to help find bin Laden was leaked, jeopardizing him and the CIA’s ability to recruit spies in the future. The doctor is now serving 33 years in a Pakistani prison.

May 16, 2011 – Twelve Christian were murdered in Egypt. Two hundred and thirty-two people wounded. The death toll will surely rise as victims succumb to their injuries. And that’s just in the past few days. In the same time period, more Christians were killed in Egypt at the hands of Muslims than people killed in Syria or in Libya as a result of protests, riots and resistance.  By September of 2011 it will be revealed that 93,000 Coptic Christians have fled Egypt since start of ‘Arab Spring’  For Christians in Egypt, the Arab spring keeps coming up Hitler. The irony is the Coptic Christians were in Egypt hundreds of years before Mohammed was even born. The second irony is, as history repeatedly demonstrates, what begins with the Jews never ends with the Jews. Islam is not only incompatible with democracy, it is incompatible with every people and every system that is not Islamic.

MAY 24 – A new clampdown on Christian protestants in Algeria as a result of the Arab Spring. The Algerian ‘wilaya’ (province) of Bejaia has ordered 7 places of worship of this religious group to be closed. The measure, el Watan reports on its website, was issued on May 8. It was made executive on the 22nd and announced yesterday.

May 25, 2011 a group of Egyptians, led by founding member Emad Abdel Sattar proclaimed the establishment of “a contemporary frame of reference” Nazi Party.  Sattar reportedly stated that the party, whose founding deputy is a former military official, would bring together prominent figures from Egyptian society, and vest all powers in a “carefully selected” president.  The Egyptian publication Al-Masry Al-Youm, at its English website, further contends the Nazi party operated clandestinely during the Mubarak regime which had prevented party leaders from carrying out their activities in the open. Two Facebook pages which appeared recently under the title of “the Egyptian Nazi Party,” may confirm the party’s public emergence since Mubarak was deposed. Whether or not the inchoate new Egyptian Nazi Party, operating within a “modern framework,” becomes a significant political force, Nazism and its ugly resonance with the country’s Muslim masses, has a prolonged, disturbing legacy in Egypt.

May 25, 2011- Amid the upheavals in Egypt since January, reports have begun to emerge of a surge in disappearances of Coptic girls. One priest in Cairo estimates that at least 21 young girls, many as young as 14, have disappeared from his parish alone.  In most cases, when a Christian girl who disappears is found by her family, she has been converted to Islam and married. The Coptic authorities, have even set up a series of refuges in monasteries to handle the growing numbers of girls who wish to return to their families.

May 31, 2011 – 400 Al-Qaeda terrorists in the northern Sinai desert of attack security facilities in Rafah and El-Arish.

June, 2011 – The rhetoric of support for democratization from US President Barack Obama ignores uprising of al Qaeda forces in the Arab Spring.  The BBC reports that for decades they relied on regional strongmen to promote Arab-Israeli peace, fight Islamist extremism and counter the influence of Iran.  The toppling of these strongmen/dictators could give rise to Islamic Fundamentalist Radicals.

June 24, 2011, 2011 – A Salafist group in Kuwait displaya an Al Qaeda Iraq flag during a demonstration supporting the Syrian people on June 24th.  The Administration and American press played down its significance insisting that Kuwait is one of the most stable nations in the Middle East.  “What happened during the demonstration was expected, especially since the organizers were young members of the Muslim Brotherhood, backed by a group of young Salafists and young members of some tribes,” Dr. Shamlan al-Issa, professor of political science at Kuwait University said. “By displaying the al-Qaeda flag, or the Taliban flag, or that of any similar organization, a demonstrator is proclaiming or expressing the views of that group.”

July 3, 2011 – Tunisia’s commission of political reform announced that it adopted (by majority) a ”republican pact” that will be the basis of the future new Constitution, and in particular it states the rejection of any normalization with Israel. While announcing the pact the president of the commission, Yadh Ben Achour, did not offer any details, but the Arab speaking Tunisian press published its content, which defines Tunisia as a free and democratic country, whose official language is Arab and whose religion is Islam.  The pact, that will serve as the basis of the future Constitution, categorically rejects ”any form of normalization with the Zionist State”, and supports the Palestinian cause.

July 4, 2011 – “If U.S. troops are not in Afghanistan the Taliban will come to power,” said Obaid S. Christ, an Afghan Christian exiled to India.  Beheadings of Christians in Muslim dominated Arab Spring countries is becoming commonplace.  The administration stills calls the uprising Democracy in action.

August 7, 2011 –  Six Islamic countries reported as flooding  Spain with money to foster radicalism among its Muslim population, according to a new report from the Spanish spy agency CNI.  Minister of Justice Juan Carlos Campo said Kuwait is the worse off in the CNI report. Through the Revival of Islamic Heritage Society (RIHS), it has funded the construction of mosques in Reus and Torredembarra (Catalonia) from which “spread a religious interpretation contrary to integration in Spanish society fomenting the separation and hatred of non-Muslim groups.”

Speaking in English, he said he had been sent to Somalia by Ayman al-Zawahiri, who succeeded bin Laden as Al-Qaeda’s chief. Roger Middleton, an East Africa specialist at London’s Chatham House think tank, sees a risk of even closer ties between the Shebab and Al-Qaeda. “Some of the leadership of Shebab are pretty committed to the idea of global jihad and rebuilding the Caliphate and all these kind of ideas,” he said.

October 30, 2011 – The town of al Jemel, Tripoli, said brigades from faraway Misrata had appeared at their doorstep a week ago, breaking into people’s homes. Dozens of young men have disappeared and four have been killed in detention, said Al Koni Salem Mohammed, the uncle of one of those killed.  Speaking at a mourning ceremony on the edge of town, he shook with grief as he showed the death certificate listing “electric shocks” as a cause of death. He said the body had been dumped outside the detention centre with its tongue and genitals cut off. ” After all this, our children and the children of our children will never be with this revolution,” he said, bursting into tears and shaking his fist, as other men in traditional dress sat in the shade of a tent set up for the mourning period.

October 31, 3011 –  Al-Qaeda reported as seeking new sanctuaries in unstable African nations and the continent’s disparate armed Islamist groups may forge closer ties under the Al-Qaeda umbrella, experts and officials warned.  Al-Qaeda has already established links with a number of African Islamist groups. Its declared North Africa affiliate is Al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM). Somalia’s Shebab also swore allegiance to bin Laden, who was killed by US commandos. “Al-Qaeda traditionally has taken advantage of areas that are wracked by conflict, turmoil and lack of government. It is a safe haven they seek to launch attacks,” said John Brennan.

Treason:  To avoid the abuses of the English law (including executions by Henry VIII of those who criticized his repeated marriages), treason was specifically defined in the United States Constitution, the only crime so defined. Article III Section 3 delineates treason as follows:   Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort. No Person shall be convicted of Treason unless on the Testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt Act, or on Confession in open Court.  The Congress shall have Power to declare the Punishment of Treason, but no Attainder of Treason shall work Corruption of Blood, or Forfeiture except during the Life of the Person attainted.
