Today Alan P. Gross’s lawyer and wife have said that the 64 year old man plans to take his own life rather than serve the remaining 11 years of his 15 year sentence in a Cuban prison. Gross was on a hunger strike for 9 days in April when his mother, who recently died of cancer, told him to discontinue it. In a statement on his behalf it was said that he had lost more than 100 pounds (not all due to the hunger strike), is losing vision in one eye, and his hips are failing. Gross is a former U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) contractor who was also a volunteer field organizer in 2008 for President Obama’s campaign.
In 2009 Gross set up an unauthorized Internet network for the Cuban Jewish community while working for the USAID. He brought in satellite phones and computer equipment for the Jewish community in clear violation of Cuban law. He did not identify himself as a representative of the U.S. government but rather as part of a Jewish humanitarian group. Yet when he was arrested he had a high-tech chip that keeps satellite phone transmission from being located within a 250 mile radius. This chip is not easily available but the CIA, the Defense and State Departments (the latter oversees USAID) do have access to them. A USAID spokesman claims that they did not help him acquire the chip – but that is probably not true. It does look very much like Alan Gross did commit a crime under Cuban law and he went there deliberately to do so. Although I cannot help but wonder if his handler at USAID didn’t say something like ‘don’t worry, we will handle all the paper work, all you have to do is . . .’ and made it seem like something irregular, but not illegal.
U.S. Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lethinen has referred to his treatment by the Cuban government as an effort to get a prisoner exchange (there are a number of Cuban spies they want back). Although not a threat to Cuba, his actions are considered an affront to Cuban sovereignty and Cuba has laws about ‘crimes against the state.’
Judy Gross, Alan’s wife, suggested there should be a swap, especially in light of the recent swap of five Taliban for Bowe Bergdahl. She said in a statement that "My husband and I need President Obama to do everything in his power to end this nightmare and bring Alan home from Cuba now."
U.S. and Cuban officials did not have immediate comment, but Jay Carney, White House spokesman said last December 3 that he ‘doesn't know whether the president has seen the letter penned by a U.S. government contractor jailed in Cuba, in which he expressed fear that the United States had "abandoned" him.’ But according to JJ ‘Obama is personally engaged in freeing Alan Gross.’ Yeah, right. Could Gross have done a more to help Obama get elected? Yes, but would it have helped? Probably not, after all Gross is white and Jewish. One only needs to remember that Obama threw the white grandmother who raised him under the bus.
As a result of this case it seems to me that 1) it is clear that we do leave our men behind (except traitors), and 2) Alan and Judy Gross may want to reconsider their trust in Obama and their delusional belief in him. It is hard to see how Judy Gross could continue to trust Obama, and it seems unlikely that Alan Gross does anymore, after all, he has already spent four years in a communist prison paradise.
Efforts are gaining strength to release an American held in a Mexican jail and the wife and children of an American citizen, Daniel Wani of New Hampshire, who are being held in a Sudanese jail. Each of them has been the topic of previous articles by this writer (see here and here) who is indignant at these travesties of justice.
If the White House sincerely believes that America leaves no man (specifically a military man) behind – then why have they allowed Sgt. Tahmooressi to languish in a Mexican jail for so long? (Oh right, I forgot, he doesn’t further the Obama agenda). On June twentieth Tahmooressi’s mother said on CNN that they have heard nothing from the White House. That she appeared on CNN is a good sign (that one of the most ‘progressive’ news outlets is finally picking up this story). Furthermore Mrs. Tahmooressi was interviewed by anchor Chris Cuomo, son a former New York state governor, and brother of the current one. This means that not only is CNN becoming aware of the story, but so will the elites in the New York Democrat Party as well as American low-information voters.
A petition to the White House on behalf of Tahmooressi reached the 100,000 point on May 31. At that point the White House is required to respond. However Tahmooressi remains in a Mexican jail.
Meriam Yahya Ibrahim Ishag
U.S. Rep. Trent Franks is leading the charge to rescue Meriam Yahya Ibrahim Ishag, a Sudanese Christian and her two children. Franks’ bi-partisan petition was addressed to Secretary of State John Kerry (cc’d to the Secretary of Homeland Security). Those signing the petition were: Trent Franks (R-AZ), Spencer Bachus (R-AL), Rob Bishop (R-UT), Paul C. Broun (R-GA), Gus Bilirakis (R-FL), Sanford D. Bishop, Jr. (D-GA), Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV), Steve Chabot (R-OH), Tom Cotton (R-AR), Steve Daines (R-MT), John Fleming (R-LA), J. Randy Forbes (R-VA), Jeff Fortenberry (R-NE), Michael Grimm (R-NY), Tom Griffin (R-AR), Gregg Harper (R-MS), Andy Harris, M.D. (R-MD), Vicky Hartzler (R-MO), Jaime Herrera Buetler (R-WA), Steve King, M.D. (R-IA), Jack Kingston (R-GA), Leonard Lance (R-NJ), Robert E. Latta (R-OH), Mike McIntyre (D-NC), Alan Nunnelee (R-MS), Gary Peters (D-MI), Collin C. Peterson(D-MN), Robert Pittenger (R-NC), Charles Rangel (D-NY), Jan Schackowsky (D-IL), F. James Sensenbrenner, Jr. (R-WI), Carol Shea-Porter (D-NH), Chris Smith (R-NJ), Steve Stivers (R-OH), Jackie Walorski (R-IN), Brad Wendstrup (R-OH), Frank Wolf (R-VA), and Don Young (R-AK).
In their letter they asked Kerry to “direct” the Embassy in Khartoum, to “prioritize the plight of this young family” and to have both the State Department and the Department of Homeland Security quickly review all possible means available to grant them sanctuary in the United States.” The also asked that priority be given to “granting her children U.S. citizenship, and ensuring that Mr. Wani has custody of his children.” Yet the above list of 38 members of the House of Representatives who signed the petition calls into question this “where were the other 397 members of the House? Why didn’t they sign it?” Those that are familiar with this family’s story can have little doubt of its truth, and that rescuing her from certain death, and all of them from a Sudanese jail is meritorious. In addition on June 9 in the House Rep. Cotton introduced H.R. 4821.
Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) introduced Senate Resolution 453 which was passed by unanimous (now that is a surprise) consent on June 3 – it condemns the charge of apostasy and the death sentence for Meriam Yahya Ibrahim Ishag, and calls for “the release of her and her children.” In addition Senator Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) introduced S. 2474 on June 12. Yet they remain in dire straits in Sudan, a woman married to an American citizen and her two American citizen children, including an infant born in prison. Legally they have a right to come here where they may practice their religion in freedom – not so the hordes of Latin Americans now crossing into America who have no legal right to be here. Lady Liberty must feel ashamed at this travesty of justice.
Canceling the simulcast of ‘The Death of Klinghoffer” does not exculpate any of the personnel affiliated with the opera if the show will be presented on stage as scheduled. Because Peter Gelb acknowledged the “genuine concern in the international Jewish community,” he is not oblivious to the impropriety, yet he continues unimpeded. He may well be an active partner to the insult, an accomplice to Alice Goodman’s rejection of their mutual heritage, or he lacks the capacity to see that this production should also be of enormous concern to the greater American community. It would appear that this may well rank with the Bavarian Oberammergau that continues to inspire antisemitism – but not only antisemitism. This perverted story is an act of jihad.
For the still uninformed, Jihad is “holy war,” or it would be a holy war if Islam were a bona fide religion. However, Islam is political ideology, a movement of conquest that is presented as a religion (a religion of peace, no less!), a duty for all Muslims to wage war against the non-Islamic world on behalf of their prophet, Mohammed. In the 7th century, after 13 years of futile attempts at converting Meccan and Medinan Jews, Christians and idol worshippers to his new religion, Mohammed began torturing, looting and destroying those who would not accept his “religion” or him as prophet. He beheaded (Jewish) men, enslaved women and children, and killed until both cities were inhabited by Muslims only. Thus he acquired land and converts to Islam. To this day, his followers must obey the same Qur’anic decrees. Eighty percent of the Qur’an is devoted to dealing with the unbeliever. Mohammed converted about 10,000 to Islam every year, committing violence until the end of his life. Islam is a detailed political system, a demonic doctrine of jihad and the implementation of Islamic laws, Sharia, everywhere.
9:29 Make war on those who have received the Scriptures (Jews and Christians) but do not believe in Allah or in the Last Day. They do not forbid what Allah and His Messenger have forbidden. The Christians and Jews do not follow the religion of truth until they submit and pay the poll tax (jizya) and they are humiliated.
Over these 1400 years, Jihad has been responsible for the death of 270 million people worldwide. Known as “The Tears of Jihad,” they include 60 million Christians, 80 million Hindus, 10 million Buddhists, 120 million Africans, the number increases with each attack throughout the Middle East, Africa, Europe, Russia, India and China. To assume that we Americans are not included in their vision is, at the least, foolish. To paint the jihadists as though they might be justified or in need of compassion is reckless. We cannot turn a blind eye and portray the terrorists with humanity, or we will not be able to defend ourselves as they change our culture and mindset in this slow, methodical onslaught. These cold-blooded killers who are meticulously trained since childhood to revel and celebrate death have been robbed of all humanity.
The opera’s purpose is to prime us to be insensitive to the death of a wheelchair-bound American, a veteran of World War II, an inventor and appliance manufacturer, a husband and father, with the smokescreen that he is Jewish and, therefore, responsible for every misfortune known to the Muslim world. It is also preparing us to slowly lose our moral compass, take on their Qur’anic mission of hate and death, and tolerate their violence, evil, and bloodlust as “acceptable under the circumstances.” It is enhanced with the accusation of "Islamophobia," to prevent us from naming and discussing the enemy.
Raymond Ibrahim, Associate Fellow at the Middle East Forum and author, has exposed Islam’s war on Christians. There are news reports daily of Muslim killings according to Muhammad’s commands – oppressing their women, honor killings, hunting down apostates, kidnapping children into sexual slavery, and converting or killing Christians in Afghanistan, Algeria, Cameroon, Egypt, Iran, Krygyz, Morocco, Nigeria, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, Tanzania, and into Europe. You need only turn on the few TV channels that are still dedicated to reporting the truth.
The opera is an insult to the memory of Leon Klinghoffer and his family and an assault on us and our humanity. We must not be manipulated into this gradual acceptance of the Islamic viewpoint. We must understand that this is yet another jihad war strategy with the purpose of destroying us – nihilism - to establish an Islamic caliphate in the Western world. There is no greater threat to mankind today than Islam and this opera must not be staged.
This Heritage event on Benghazi has gotten a lot of press over the last day or two, with the left claiming the event turned ‘ugly‘ and that the Muslim woman was ‘pounced on’ and ‘bullied’ by members of the panel.
But after watching it myself, that characterization couldn’t be more wrong. In fact Brigitte Gabriel’s answer to this Muslim woman is perhaps the best answer I’ve ever heard to the ‘peaceful Muslims’ question.
If you want to watch the full video that includes a response by Frank Gaffney in the beginning, watch below:
I don’t think many of our readers will be surprised, but we trained many of these men as well. Aaron Klein, reporting for WND, now tells us that many of these rebels were trained by the U.S. at a secret facility in Jordan.
Members of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, or ISIS, were trained in 2012 by U.S. instructors working at a secret base in Jordan, according to informed Jordanian officials.
The officials said dozens of ISIS members were trained at the time as part of covert aid to the insurgents targeting the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in Syria. The officials said the training was not meant to be used for any future campaign in Iraq.
The Jordanian officials said all ISIS members who received U.S. training to fight in Syria were first vetted for any links to extremist groups like al-Qaida.
I watched the interview of Hillary Clinton by Bret Baer and Greta Van Susteren on Fox News last night. The reviews indicate most people think the questions were softball. Howard Kurtz said, "There was none of the testiness that marked some of her earlier TV interviews."
I'm guessing Hillary's handlers gave her some pointers and suggestions after her previously awful interviews by others. She produced almost nothing that we didn't already know, only put a slight new spin on her answers. I didn't count how many times she said "In my book" or something similar. Unfortunately it doesn't seem like anyone is really interested in her book, 'Hard Choices', only 60,000 copies sold the first week? Sad choice of title in my opinion.
My friend A.C. questions the timing of the announcement concerning the capture of Benghazi suspect Ahmed Abu Khattala. He also discussed the links between the current situation in Iraq, Syria, Libya, ... Sure didn't hurt Hillary in her interview.
It's not surprising that a wing nut such as myself would question the timing of anything the Decider Guy might do on terrorism. But it is a little surprising that the State Dept press secretary was peppered with timing questions right off the bat in her briefing today, and not only by Fox. One does have to wonder why it took so long seeing as how the indictment against Khattala was sealed almost a year ago amidst rumors he was very easy to find around the Benghazi cafe scene. Surely it had nothing to do with Hillary's scheduled interview with Fox News tonight.
Aside from the political skepticism this is great. If the picture released with today's stories was taken after the snatch he looks scared poopless, which is good based on the poop he sold the Times about it being our fault and such. So it looks like one down about 23 to go. Don't miss the fact that we're seeing yet another rendition by Obama with a terror suspect whisked away to an unknown location. Where have we heard that complaint before? But take heart ideologically consistent liberals, Holder is charging him with gun crimes, too. (continue reading at Fore-Left)
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel ordered an aircraft carrier moved into the Gulf on Saturday, readying it in case Washington decides to pursue a military option after insurgents overwhelmed a string of Iraqi cities this week and threatened Baghdad..
"The order will provide the Commander-in-Chief additional flexibility should military options be required to protect American lives, citizens and interests in Iraq," the Pentagon said in a statement.
The carrier USS George H.W. Bush, moving from the North Arabian Sea, will be accompanied by the guided-missile cruiser USS Philippine Sea and the guided-missile destroyer USS Truxtun, the statement said. It added the ships were expected to complete their transit into the Gulf later on Saturday.
President Barack Obama said on Friday he needed several days to determine how the United States would help Iraq deal with the stunning advance of Islamist militants, who earlier this week seized several major Iraqi cities and appeared to have set their sights on the capital, Baghdad.
But the U.S. leader ruled out sending U.S. troops back into combat in Iraq, where over 4,000 U.S. soldiers died in the war that followed the 2003 invasion to oust Saddam Hussein, and said any intervention would be contingent on Iraqi leaders (continue reading Yahoo, hat tip Drudge)

This isn't that shocking if you understand that we are not fighting a conventional enemy. We are fighting a radical ideology that permeates every part of the Middle East. It knows no boundaries. Its sole goal is to conquer all. ...
No amount of training or equipment will change a belief system. We cannot fight an ideology with weapons. Until we understand that, we will never defeat Islamic terrorists.

To the Staff of the Metropolitan Opera:
During World War II, a violinist dressed in military uniform went to play for the servicemen in a United States Army hospital in Italy. As he entered a ward designated for young men who had recently lost limbs, he was shocked to see that one patient was attempting to applaud with his only hand. As the musician’s face lit up with compassion and sensitivity, he raised his violin and played. His name was Jascha Heifetz, a Lithuanian-born Jewish American whose 65-year career began at age four. He made his Carnegie Hall debut at age 16, and became world renowned for the perfection to which other violinists still aspire.
Seated next to Heifetz at the hospital piano was pianist Milton Kaye. Fifty years later, Kaye recalled that memorable concert when he heard “the greatest violinist of the ages.” The following year, pianist Seymour Lipkin beheld that same magnificence when he accompanied Heifetz on another GI tour, stating that the violinist always played his best, no matter the circumstances. Heifetz had been so moved when he entertained the paraplegics, that despite his grueling schedule, he continued to add more such concerts to his tours, and Kaye remembers those days as “the greatest privilege” of his musical life.
In addition to an unparalleled talent, Heifetz had what is known as neshamah, a Jewish soul – what may be described as an energy and essence of virtue and humanity, passion and compassion, and depth of empathy for others. It was even apparent to his father who saw the four-year-old prodigy cry when he played sad music. No doubt, it is the Israeli neshamah that provides quality medical attention even to their enemies, and the same that sends Israeli first responders to countries devastated by natural disasters. And it is this same quality that appears to have eluded the next generation of Heifetzes,-- Jascha’s great nephew, Peter Gelb, artistic director at the Metropolitan Opera (The “Met”).
It was said of Gelb that he declares himself a man of the people, but that he is out of touch with the prevailing zeitgeist (culture of the time). Noted in the Berkshire Fine Arts, Gelb lacks the qualifications to organize a program and appoint or audition singers and, despite his inexpertise, captured this Met position from the ailing James Levine. But it is Gelb’s choice of opera for the 2014 fall season that is most disturbing.
The Death of Klinghoffer was cited for being anti-Semitic and pro-Islamic terrorism, and Gelb’s integrity and moral compass are in question. Instead of eliciting compassion and tears for the murder of a defenseless, wheelchair-bound man, Mr. Leon Klinghoffer, a fellow-American and Jew, Gelb’s opera will offer sympathy and apology for the Islamic murderers – who might just as well have thrown the Jewish-American Gelb overboard, had he vacationed aboard the ill-fated Achille Lauro.
Gelb’s collaborators were director Peter Sellars and choreographer Mark Morris for concept, John Adams’ music and Alice Goodman’s libretto. The opera was commissioned by five American and European opera companies and was first performed at the Brooklyn Academy of Music. And the Met staff decided to cast ethics to the wind and fan the flames of anti-Semitism.
Rather than show concern for the victim and his family, and the other terrified, endangered tourists who were taken hostage, although ultimately spared, the artistes extol the contrived virtues of the cold-blooded killers. They have taken a pro-Islamic, anti-American/Jewish stance in favor of an avowed enemy – Islam, whose adherents repeatedly warn that they will overtake the West and establish an Islamic caliphate on our soil. And the Met’s callous staff and cast will provide the venue for the glorification of Islam, thereby softening the eventual conquest of an acclimatized people.
Would these soulless specimens sympathize with these Muslims if the victim were also their own family member or religious compadre? Did they likewise sympathize with the Mahmoud Abbas-financed and -orchestrated Munich Massacre of 11 Israeli athletes? Or the Muslims who commandeered the planes that killed three thousand in the World Trade Center? Or the Boston Marathon jihadists who killed three and injured/crippled 264 racers? Or Major Hassan who fatally shot 13 and injured more than 30 at Fort Hood? Would the Met also consider providing sophisticated entertainment while reproducing the beheading of Jewish-American journalist, Daniel Pearl? Or blowing up a school bus of children in Chechnya or Israel? Perhaps Gelb would consider a choral group of 200 young girls for an opera about the Boko Haram kidnappings in Nigeria? What other inspiration might one select for musical adventures into the exaltation of Islam and its adherents for the pleasure of the unenlightened?
Can the Met not grasp that to glorify evil is evil? Just as we must never recreate the atrocities of the concentration camps for our amusement, so must we never recreate any acts of malevolence to minimize their impact on the human psyche. While the author(s) and producer(s) claim to find motivation for Islamic acts, they do not seek the truth; Islamic motivation is hate, envy, resentment, against Jews, Christians, Americans, Western Civilization.
·Mohammed bore extreme hate for the Jews because they rejected his new religion and his status as prophet.
·In revenge, he beheaded the Jewish men of Mecca and Medina, captured other men, women, and children as slaves (or for slave trade), seized the coveted metal crafts for his booty, and declared the cities holy for Islam. This success became part of the Islamic “religion.”
·The envy of Islam for Western accomplishments is strong because their lives were devoted to war, conquest, bloodshed, not learning or creativity. Therefore, their claims to invention come from the creativity of the nations they have conquered. Muslims are now asserting that Moses, Jesus, Christopher Columbus, and Albert Einstein were Muslim.
·Further envy and hatred come from their belief that Islam is the best and only religion, yet they are conflicted because their society is beset with illiteracy, poverty, distrust, discrimination, enslavement, vigilante killings and unhappiness. They understand that life is better in the West, yet they are in the West to change our system to theirs.
Just as we must never recreate the atrocities of the concentration camps for our amusement, so we must never recreate any acts of malevolence to minimize their impact on the human psyche. No matter what the adversity or personal history behind acts of evil, never forget that the acts are evil. Although Islamic motivation is hate, embedded in the Koran, and taught to the very young and throughout their lives, the motivation is immaterial.
Criminals must be held accountable, not excused, for their behavior, and never celebrated, or every felon would be freed and anarchy would reign. For the sake of our survival as a nation and as a species, our obligation is morality.
Barack Obama was SO concerned about the health of healthy looking Bowe Bergdahl, the American soldier of dubious loyalty who claims that he was held hostage by the Taliban. Hence, in violation of a bill Obama had himself signed into law, he negotiated to allow Bergdahl’s release. Yet somehow Obama has apparently shown zero interest in the health of the family of Daniel Wani, a naturalized American citizen. Wani is a Christian, as is his Sudanese wife Dr. Meriam Ibrahim who on May 27th gave birth to a baby girl in the prison hospital at Omdurman Federal Women’s Prison in North Khartoum. According to Human Rights Watch the prison is overcrowded and has poor sanitation, both of which are particularly hard on the many children living there with their mothers.
Meriam’s parents were an Orthodox Christian woman from Ethiopia and a Sudanese Muslim who left them when Meriam was six years old. Raised as a Christian, she refuses to renounce her faith and ‘return’ to Islam, hence she was arrested and placed in prison last February. As all children of Muslim men are automatically considered Muslim, therefore Meriam is considered Muslim under Sudanese law. The punishment in Sudan for apostasy, which she is accused of, is death by hanging. However, as she has just given birth execution will be delayed for two years until the child is weaned.
According to Islamic law upon which Sudanese law is based, a Muslim man may marry a non-Muslim woman, but a Muslim woman cannot marry a non-Muslim. Therefore her marriage is considered void. Sudanese officials say that her 20 month old son Martin, an American thanks to his father, is a Muslim too and therefore cannot be released to the care of his father.
Greta Van Susteren interviewed Daniel Wani see here recently and he revealed that that the American Consulate in Khartoum refused to do anything to help him as early as October, when she was already a few weeks pregnant with their second child. In fact it seems that the British Consulate has been more helpful.
What can you do? Put pressure on the Sudanese government. Sign the Amnesty International petition here to stop her execution, which carries this message to the Sudanese Minister of Justice:
Dear Minister of Justice,
Ensure that Meriam Yehya Ibrahim is released immediately and unconditionally. She is a prisoner of conscience, convicted solely because of her religious beliefs and identity.
But this is not enough, spread the word to everyone you know. While her execution may be two years away, the health of all three of them is in immediate jeopardy. This is no place for an infant or a toddler and it is up to us to do whatever we can assure their prompt release.
For those not familiar with the story of Marine reservist Andrew Tahmooressi of Weston, Florida, he was looking for a place to live in San Diego, having recently left South Florida. He got on a freeway and accidentally ended up in Mexico with all of his possessions including 3 guns that he legally owns in the USA. He had not intended to go to Mexico and reported this and his guns immediately, so instead of recognizing this as an innocent mistake, and directing him back over the border into the USA, the Mexican government had him locked up in a Tijuana prison. That was on April 1. Mexico, for those who are geographically challenged, is immediately south of the United States. We are not at war with Mexico, although the Mexican drug cartels are at war with both Mexico and the United States.
Joe Kaufman spoke at a recent rally on behalf of Tahmooressi, where he said that ‘when a troop is stranded on the battlefield, his fellow troops are mandated to do everything in their power to bring him back. It is time for the Obama Administration to do the same, even if it has to cut off Mexican funds or tourism to Mexico to do so.’ Joe Kaufman understands that Andrew Tahmooressi is the responsibility of the American government, and so do members of congress Ileana Ros-Lethinen, Duncan Hunter, and Matt Salmon as well as TV personality Greta Van Susteren who led a petition to the White House on Tahmooressi’s behalf. Yet Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Kaufman’s opponent in the current race to represent Florida’s 23rd district, has responded in the usual limp-wristed manner of an Obama Administration apparatchik.
She has given legitimacy to the Mexican government’s actions – they know it was an innocent mistake and that he is not a criminal, yet they locked him up anyway. Further she has not called out the Mexican government for their abuses and claims that he is being treated well there, yet it is well known that Mexican prisons are controlled by the drug cartels. For the low-information voter, Debbie Wasserman Schultz who is the Democratic Party Chairman, is close to President Obama and Secretary of State Kerry. Yet none of them has been willing to do anything on behalf of Tahmooressi (if, like Bowe Bergdahl, he were anti-American and sided with our enemies it might have helped).
It is time to bring Sgt. Tahmooressi home, and to retire Debbie Wasserman Schultz, his useless Congressman, who is nothing more than a mouthpiece for the Obama Administration and has chosen to ignore justice in this case. She even informed Andrew’s mother that she would write a letter to the State Department, the very state department that permitted four American employees to die in Benghazi. Maybe it is just me, but ever since then I have seriously doubted that the American State Department receives much respect abroad, nor that they have much respect, no matter where they are, for American citizens. Debbie Wasserman Schultz was urged by Joe Kaufman to do the right thing and to stand up for Sargent Tahmooressi – I’m not holding my breath, but I am urging those in Florida’s district 23 to retire her as soon as possible.
