Obama Picks "China-coddling Israel Basher" to lead National Intelligence Council

Great article on Obama's National Intelligence Council head From Political Vindication Blog...

"If you feared that Barack Obama had not the experience or the wisdom to defend this country from its enemies, this news will confirm those fears. He has picked “former Ambassador to Saudi Arabia, Charles “Chas” Freeman Jr.” to head the agency that gives us our national intelligence estimates. What’s so bad about “Chas”? The Wall Street Journal’s Gabriel Schoenfield reports:

"While President Obama speaks of helping the people of Israel “search for credible partners with whom they can make peace,” Mr. Freeman believes, as he said in a 2007 address to the Washington Institute of Foreign Affairs, that “Israel no longer even pretends to seek peace with the Palestinians; it strives instead to pacify them.” The primary reason America confronts a terrorism problem today, he continued, is “the brutal oppression of the Palestinians by an Israeli occupation that is about to mark its fortieth anniversary and shows no sign of ending.”
Although initial reaction to Mr. Freeman’s selection has focused on his views of the Middle East, that region is by no means Mr. Freeman’s only area of interest. He has pronounced on a wide variety of other subjects, including China, where he has attempted to explain away the scale and scope of the starkly intensive buildup of the People’s Liberation Army.
"The specter of a Chinese threat", he remarked during a China forum at the Johns Hopkins University School of Advanced International Studies in October 2006, is nothing more than “a great fund-raiser for the hyper-expensive advanced weaponry our military-industrial complex prefers to make and our armed forces love to employ.”
On the massacre at Tiananmen Square in 1989, Mr. Freeman unabashedly sides with the Chinese government, a remarkable position for an appointee of an administration that has pledged to advance the cause of human rights. Mr. Freeman has been a participant in ChinaSec, a confidential Internet discussion group of China specialists. A copy of one of his postings was provided to me by a former member.
“The truly unforgivable mistake of the Chinese authorities,” he wrote there in 2006, “was the failure to intervene on a timely basis to nip the demonstrations in the bud.” Moreover, “the Politburo’s response to the mob scene at ‘Tiananmen’ stands as a monument to overly cautious behavior on the part of the leadership, not as an example of rash action.” Indeed, continued Mr. Freeman, “I do not believe it is acceptable for any country to allow the heart of its national capital to be occupied by dissidents intent on disrupting the normal functions of government, however appealing to foreigners their propaganda may be."

President Obama’s choice of Chas Freeman is a sure sign that America is putting her security in the hands of those who consider us the enemy."

The Obama/Democrat(ic) deconstruction of America continues.... and the media is silent or busy bashing Rush Limbaugh.
