In a callous and unreasonable act of complete disregard for our military, Obama’s Defense Department has sent pink slips to military officers serving on the battlefield in Afghanistan. This reminds one of the treatment of victims of Nadal Hassan in Ft. Hood, but it gets even more intriguing. While this is going on, the Pentagon and the military are looking to keep and employ more Muslims.
According to a report by the World Tribune, officials said the ‘Defense Department has been keeping records and tracking Muslims so they can encourage their presence and continued advancement in the military.’
They said ‘the administration sought to attract Muslims both to the military and to the Pentagon.’
“Our nation and our entire military family remain stronger because of the service and sacrifice of people of all faiths, including the thousands of patriotic Muslim Americans who have served and still serve in this long period of war,” Deputy Defense Secretary Robert Work said last week.
The U.S. military currently has 4,500 uniformed Muslims, the Pentagon said on July 3. The Pentagon has another 1,000 from Saudi-sponsored groups.
Saudi Arabians were mostly behind the first 9/11 attack. Bin Laden was a Saudi Arabian. Saudi Arabia is engaged in human rights abuses every day, especially against women and gays. While they are our allies, are they people we should take advice from when selecting Muslims for the military and the Pentagon?
The numbers being employed include civilian contractors who we have been told don’t vet their employees properly. Snowden was a contractor.
DOD’s Robert Work
In his address, Work quoted Obama as saying that Ramadan reminded Americans of the principles of peace, justice and equality. He was serious.
The deputy secretary also urged those at the Iftar to remember their responsibility to the defense of the United States, the Tribune reported.
“Our country’s founders understood in a visceral way [that] the best way to honor the place of faith in the lives of all Americans was to fight for justice and equality as well as liberty and freedom,” Work said. “That is exactly what the men and women both in and out of uniform who serve in the Department of Defense do every single day. They are safeguarding the very
ideals deemed so precious by our founding fathers.”
Last week more than 1100 Army captains – men and women who are experts in their field – who have served in multiple deployments to war zones were summarily and without fanfare retired. Were any Muslims retired one must wonder.
At a time when we face the greatest threats, Obama is cutting our military to the size of France’s military, but don’t worry, NSA continues to grow as they seek 4,000 new recruits.
Obama famously said we are a Muslim nation in an interview with a French TV channel:
Last Fall, Obama’s senior adviser to the Homeland Security Department, Mohamed Elibiary, wrote that the U.S.Constitution was “Islamically compliant,” as reported by the Investigative Project on Terrorism.
A week later, Elibiary issued a statement that said the U.S. Constitution was “Islamically compliant” and that a Muslim caliphate was “inevitable.”
He was quoted as saying the U.S. was a Muslim nation but he corrected that. “I said America was an Islamic country not a Muslim country,” Elibiary tweeted June 30.
Doesn’t sound much better, does it? It’s part of the fundamental transformation of our nation.
