Richard Engel: US Allies in Gulf Won't Tell Obama Anything Because They Believe That Obama Is Leaking Secret Information to Iran to Kiss Up To Them

Deranged.

And I don't mean Engel or the Saudis. I mean Obama.

The Saudis began operations in Yemen without informing the US -- a hitherto unlikely scenario.

But they kept the operation a secret.

Because they think Obama is so determined to make kissy-face with Iran that he would have leaked their battle plans directly to their enemy.

They no longer consider the US "reliable."

Starting at 1:51.

More importantly, Engel's report advances this to an allegation of betrayal, not just incompetence. Clearly, Saudi Arabia has little confidence left in the Obama administration; that much is evident from their actions to cut the US out of the loop on this coalition. Engel's report strongly suggests that it's not just incompetence that has the Saudis and other US allies rattled, but a suspicion that they're being purposefully sold out by Obama to get a deal with Iran that will unleash their ambitions to dominate the region.

The Clintons are in tight with the Saudi's. I wonder how this is playing out behind the scenes.

They had to have been, right? Because it would be naive to believe that every U.S. president would be an ally.



And then followed with this when it occurred to me the state we're in:


Wow. I can't believe I just typed the above.

But here we are. We have a political terrorist in the White House and I'm here hoping that a foreign nation doesn't trust us. Wow.

Engel is good, and his Arabic is very good, so he doesn't depend on translators or interpreters for very much. That's a huge advantage.

Can we stop with the Hannit-level silliness of fainting over "!!!! the US is fighting AGAINST Iran in Yemen and fighting WITH them in Iraq!!! eleventy!!!"

Once we had the disastrous situation this administration helped create in Iraq, and the emergence of ISIS, there wasn't much choice but to be on the same side in northern Iraq. Temporarily.

We are obviously in an "unprecedented" time of idiocy and disastrously stupid policies created by absurdly unfit people supported (passively or actively) by a pathetic electorate and collapsed institutions. This probably vastly understates the problem.

But opposing ISIS in Iraq while Iran also happens to do so is no part of the problem, and doesn't present any contradiction unusual for war-time expediency.

143 After TFG's release of the Israeli defense playbook (formerly classified and by custom held in confidence as a favor to a staunch ally) during the run-up to the recent Israeli elections, it's obvious he can't be trusted with anything of value. I wouldn't trust him to run to the corner for Luckies for me, lest he take off with my change and my smokes. I don't fault any of our allies here, given that their national security is on the line too, albeit not to the degree Israel's has become as a direct result of the Obama / Kerry / Clinton fustercluck about to be "signed" - or not.

Where is the helm and the hauberk, and the bright hair flowing?
Where is the hand on the harpstring, and the red fire glowing?
Where is the spring and the harvest, and the tall corn growing?
They have passed like rain on the mountain, like a wind in the meadow;
The days have gone down in the West behind the hills in shadow.
Who shall gather the smoke of the dead wood burning,
Or behold the flowing years from the Sea returning?"

And you relentlessly optimistic folks around here, note the British foreign minister's comments. Although not inarticulate like Obama and his top people, what he's saying is just as jaw-droppingly imbecilic. As if a "framework" agreement that isn't written and consists of concessions to an artless,weak, andimplacable enemy constitutes any sort of success, or indicator of future real success.

The UK has been lost for a while- which is a huge, huge, deal for the civilized world. But I'd say this marks a new low, a sign that the UK is now every bit as clueless and craven and dangerous as the cretins that American voters empowered twice.

At what point then is the approach of danger to be expected? I answer, if it ever reach us, it must spring up amongst us. It cannot come from abroad. If destruction be our lot, we must ourselves be its author and finisher. As a nation of freemen, we must live through all time, or die by suicide.

Everyone shouting "treason" appears not to have spent a life working in the foreign policy game.

Folks, this sort of catastrophically stupid policy is fairly average for a huge segment of the dumbed-down "elite" that has now been given the keys. Back a few years ago, they were fringe, kept at arms' length even by the Dems - though that quarantine was breaking down even in the Clinton years.

But now? The insanity you now see is hardly fringe or freakish in what passes for a national security elite on the Dem side.

And it's not just the ridiculous junior figures - the Psakis, the driver whose next job was on the NSC staff, the absurdly unqualified people (this started in the Clinton years). It's most of the principals, and a lot of the senior career people. Seen any resignations, oh, in the last, say, 6 years? Didn't think so.

THAT is how f***ed we are.

Obama could only become president in the age of the Internet. I really believe people are so addled from the Internet and social media that they've lost the ability to sit and think at what Obama is doing. What he's done.

That and they lap up the sound bites and social media presence Obama's staff puts out there.

If Obama were president at any other time, he would have not been elected. Not even close.

That all sorta circumvented the purpose of the natural born requirement. The broken family and polygamous socialist absent father didn't help. Valerie and Ayers became his parental figures I guess.

Hits to our reliability (esp. for intel stuff) started under Bush, but not because of him, directly. The leaks to media, the media running them even when requested to not do so (esp. SWIFT) - these were a serious blow to normal operational credibility among even the most important allies (NATO etc.), and of course also properly interpreted by such as Arab regimes with whom we share interests and intel (note I didn't use the word "ally").

We are, of course WAY past that sort of already-troubling stage.

Now it's an issue of literal distrust of the USG to honor mutual interests and operational secrecy requirements, based on actual policy and mindset.

Like many of the successes in intel, this sort of damage can be hard to quantify, hard to make concrete. It's the things foreign regimes *don't* do, the ideas they sit on, the tips they keep to themselves, the opportunities they simply let sit. Economists would call hidden opportunity costs. Huge, and yet hard to quanitfy.

Iran: relentless global terror offensive for nearly 40 years, official ideology of enmity to the US specifically and forever, major multiple direct attacks on US and partners and allies and others, massive regional geopolitical offensive making it the chief problem for literally every country from the Gulf to the Maghreb, passive and active help to AQ, active obnoxious interference in A-stan, nuclear program, on and on.

Saudi: close intel and regional defense cooperation, war against AQ and others, willing proxy and cut-out for shady ops beyond counting, base for power projection against US enemies in the Gulf, and on downside entanglement with wahhabist and extremist elements who bankroll bad s**t outside the Kingdom.

Exactly. Sisi was interviewed recently and said something along the lines of, "if we dont get more handouts from other countries, Egypt will collapse". Saudi Arabia has been giving them billions since we reduced aid after the "coup" to remove Morsi.

But we're also still giving them a shit ton of money and access to buy military equipment etc.

Oh, but even with all of the us money and saudi money they will collapse like libya if they don't create an economy and reduce their welfare state.

Don't think Saudis have anything to worry about Egypt crossing the Red Sea. Last time it happened, the region was an entirely different world - including Egypt, which is conspicuously short on pan-Arab or fake revolutionary ambitions any more. They now fight in the same trench, to borrow another stupid Arab expression of martial solidarity.

And not worried about the Yemen operation at all. Geez it's Yemen, FFS. Somalia with more interesting border disputes and a tigther clan structure.

Anything short of sheer chaos there is basically success. And putting the (expediently) pro-Tehran Shi'a tribe back in its place is really all it's about.

The Wahhabis basically run a parallel (religious) government to the secular one headed by the Saud family.

It is those people who export Wahhabism and militant Islam around the world with madrassas, mosques, money, weapons, etc. etc.

The biggest funders of Al Qaeda and ISIS and every sunni terrorist group around the world are citizens of Saudi Arabia and the gulf states.

The Saud family really is walking a tight rope because they can't condemn the religious leaders (like Sisi did) too loudly, lest they lose control of their country, but they have to attempt to tamp down on the funding of overseas terrorism to keep the oil money flowing from the west and the protection of the us govt.
