Multiple reports now circulating of President Obama quickly taking the side of Muslims against American soldiers who were simply following orders to remove and burn materials taken from terrorist detainment cells in Afghanistan – including already defaced copies of the Koran.
While there exists an argument that Barack Obama is simply hoping to diffuse the agitation among Afghans that the destruction of some copies of the Koran has caused – that argument falls short of explaining the aggressive tone the Commander in Chief so quickly took against the very American soldiers his administration so often uses as political props when the opportunity presents itself to the Obama re-election campaign. Those soldiers were simply following orders – and initial reports are already suggesting those copies of the Koran that were destroyed had already been defaced by the captured terrorists who were using them to communicate to each other – sharing the Koran within the prison facility:
A military official said the materials were removed from the detainee center’s library because they had “extremist inscriptions” on them and there was “an appearance that these documents were being used to facilitate extremist communications.
That information – which certainly the president is aware of, did little to lessen his promise to Muslims that he would seek out and punish those Americans responsible:
I wish to express my deep regret for the reported incident,” Obama wrote. “I extend to you and the Afghan people my sincere apologies.”
The president concludes the letter: “The error was inadvertent; I assure you that we will take the appropriate steps to avoid any recurrence, to include holding accountable those responsible.”
What an honor and privilege it must be for those soldiers to serve this Commander in Chief who so quickly turns against them in order to seek favor among the very enemies those soldiers are directed to defeat. And don’t forget – it was not so long ago that senior White House adviser Valerie Jarrett – the same one who political insiders deem the defacto president within the Obama White House, told a high ranking U.S. military officer to go fetch her another drink during an exclusive D.C. dinner party.
