Rumor: Obama Admin Okayed Raid on Abu Sayyaf in Syria To Take The Sting Out Of Ramadi Failure

Over the weekend, while the the Obama administration was patting itself on the back for the Delta Force raid on ISIS/Daesh Oil Financier Abu Sayyaf, ISIS was sacking Ramadi, seizing U.S. military equipment, including missile launchers and tanks – enough to  “take 3 more Mosuls and about 10 Ramadis,” according to one ISIS supporter.

Bill O’Reilly asked his guests, Lt. Col. Ralph Peters (ret) and Col. David Hunt (Ret.) Monday night,  if they’ve heard the same rumor he’d heard that “the Obama administration knew that Ramadi was going to fall, knew it was an embarrassment, and then okayed this mission (as Col Hunt mentioned there were more than one hundred other requests that were not okayed – to take the sting out of the Ramadi situation.”

Peters said, “I’ve not heard that direct link, but I have heard the administration is doing everything it can to do damage control on the fall of Ramadi.”

(Yes, sadly, we have our own Baghdad Bobs now assigned to “damage control.”)

“Bill, the State Department has finally said that the fall of Ramadi was a set-back. It’s not a set-back. It’s a catastrophe! Ramadi is 75 miles from Baghdad! That’s Trenton to downtown Manhattan. It’s the capital of Anbar province – the key Sunni Arab province – it’s important because so many bled – died! – to take Ramadi!”

He continued to say that it was also a huge symbolic win for the Islamic State, and that “there are even some reports they got some of our M-1 tanks we gave the Iraqis.”

“Iraqi Special Forces, their elite operations – ran away, Peters added.”

Col. Hunt blasted the administration for its ineffective 9 month air campaign, “which was never going to work anyway” because the lack of troops on the ground coordinating with pilots.

Via PJ Media:

A coalition spokesman said Monday afternoon that the U.S.-led coalition  ”has conducted 19 air strikes in the vicinity of the Iraqi city of Ramadi over the past 72 hours.”

The strikes targeted Islamic State fighting positions, armoured and technical vehicles, and buildings they control.

Obama allegedly has a coalition of 60 nations fighting ISIS with us and they only managed 19 airstrikes in a three-day period.

During the Gulf War’s “Shock and Awe” campaign, the U.S. rained down 300 to 400 cruise missiles a day on Iraq for two consecutive days. At the beginning of the Iraq War, the U.S. unleashed 800 cruise missiles in two days.

Meanwhile, a massive convoy of ISIS fighters was able to parade out in the open desert in Western Anbar on Monday, completely unmolested.

The Regime says a “sandstorm” prevented them from acting, but pictures and video show an area completely clear of sand storms.

According to the ISIS Study Group,  “the public thinks Ramadi fell just the other day, but in all honesty IS had been in control of the city for the last six months.”

All this did was make it “official.” We’re aware of 50 ISF personnel who are currently trapped in the city with no way out – meaning they don’t have long on this Earth. The Obama administration may be downplaying the significance of this blow, but this is the biggest IA defeat since the fall of Mosul.

We’ve been warning about IS’ tightening chokehold on the province and how al-Asad Airbase is in danger of being overrun. As of this writing, the base is surrounded and isolated from any ground reinforcements with the Iraqi Army (IA) base in Taqaddum also vulnerable to a complex attack. A smaller IA presence at Camp Warar has been completely cut off and already experiencing probing attacks with the IS OP-tempo increasing in Fallujah and Karmah – which have forced some of the Shia proxy Popular Mobilization Committee (PMC) personnel to withdraw. After purging Ramadi of the remaining ISF presence, IS held a massive parade with a large concentration of fighters, armored vehicles and other confiscated equipment involved in the festivities as a show of force and to taunt the US government for being so weak. Not surprisingly, the Obama administration failed to capitalize on the large concentration of fighters in the area by not launching airstrikes on their positions. They claim a “sandstorm” prevented the US Air Force from launching airstrikes, which is interesting since the area seems pretty clear of sandstorms in the video footage that’s circulating the net.

The Clintons’ Own Media Meat Puppet George ‘What Donations?’ Stephanopoulos!!

The Noisy Room :My nomination this week goes to George Stephanopoulos for failing to disclose that he donated $75,000 to the Clinton Foundation and was obviously biased in his coverage and defense of Hillary Clinton. As the New York Post so astutely put it the bigger they are, the dumber they think we are:

Dan Rather of CBS was toppled by a phony document scam. Lyin’ Brian
Williams at NBC casually mixed fact with self-aggrandizing fiction.
Now George Stephanopoulos is caught in a Clinton web of deceit at ABC.

The hat trick of arrogant anchor scandals helps explain why
Americans don’t trust network news. With apologies to Walter
Cronkite, that’s the way it is, and the way it is stinks.

Stephanopoulos shares with Rather and Williams the rotten
distinction of fessing up only after being exposed by real
journalists. In his case, the Washington Free Beacon
uncovered his secret donations to the
Clinton Foundation and contacted ABC for a response.

Of course, just before the crapola hit the media fan, Stephanopoulos ran
to the Leftist rag, Politico, and vomited a confession. This was after
trying to cover it up. He didn’t tell his bosses about the donations and
he didn’t tell viewers that he had given money to the Foundation even as
he reported on it and the Clintons.

On April 26, Stephanopoulos put Peter Schweizer in the hot seat; he’s
the author of the sensational”Clinton Cash” book that exposes the
Clintons and their graft. Stephanopoulos pressed him to admit the book
contains no ‘smoking gun.’ The implication was that, if it’s not
indictable, it’s not important. He sounded more like a lawyer than a
media hack. Stephanopoulos cleverly used that standard to give the
Clintons the all-clear. The anchor also cited Schweizer’s ‘partisan
interest,’ noting that Schweizer was a speechwriter for President George
W. Bush. Boy, pot meet kettle.

Another media sycophant bites the dust amid lies and scandal. Flip this
media shill – he’s done. Another Progressive weasel gets whacked.

Rev Al’s Understudy, Dominique Sharpton!

The Independent Sentinel : Al Sharpton’s daughter Dominique Sharpton claims to have  “severely injured, bruised and wounded” her ankle when she fell over uneven pavement on Broome St and Broadway in Downtown Manhattan. She is suing the city for $5 million.

Her father, another weasel, said she “still suffers and will continue to suffer for some time physical pain and bodily injuries.”

“I sprained my ankle real bad lol,” she wrote to Instagram.

The fall was on Oct. 2 and by December she was marching in her father’s National Action Network Justice for All march in D.C. Despite her great suffering, she was seen in high heels in December and she was seen climbing a ladder to decorate a Christmas tree according to the NY Post.
