Retired Fireman’s Political 5 Alarm Fire

Obama Delays Rescue of Islamic Pirate’s Hostage For Over 36 Hours

Filed under: The Fireman's Fav's — Retired Fireman @ 11:56 am


Well, by now you have all heard of the brilliant rescue of the Islamic Pirate’s hostage by the U.S. Navy S.E.A.L. Team.  The Obama Administration is trying to paint the rescue as being the result of just what an awesome and decisive a leader Obama is.  The Obama Administration and all his little lap dogs in the MSM are attempting to make the rescue appear to be on account of his split second decision making and bravery.  Well, like anything having to do with this false idol of the Left, you know damn well that there is far more to this story than what they are allowing out into the press, and that there is a great deal of things that the Obama Admin. is hiding.  It seems, according to the people involved in the rescue, that Obama is far from the “hero” that he and his lackies are portraying him as.

This was sent to me by a friend of mine just yesterday.  Please read and see for yourself just how this President cares more for the Islamic pirates/terrorists than he does an innocent person:

(From a Marine that lives just outside Coronado where the Seals train. He uses the Coronado Officers’ club.)

Having spoken to some SEAL pals yesterday and asking why this thing dragged out for 4 days, I got the following:

1. BHO wouldn’t authorize the DEVGRU/NSWC SEAL teams to the scene for 36 hours going against OSC (on scene commander) recommendation.
2. Once they arrived, BHO imposed restrictions on their ROE that they couldn’t do anything unless the hostage’s life was in “imminent” danger
3. The first time the hostage jumped, the SEALS had the raggies all sighted in, but could not fire due to ROE restriction
4. When the navy RIB came under fire as it approached with supplies, no fire was returned due to ROE restrictions. As the raggies were shooting at the RIB, they were exposed and the SEALS had them all dialed in.
5. BHO specifically denied two rescue plans developed by the Bainbridge CPN and SEAL teams
6. Bainbridge CPN and SEAL team CDR finally decide they have the OpArea and OSC authority to solely determine risk to hostage. 4 hours later, 3 dead raggies
7. BHO immediately claims credit for his “daring and decisive” behaviour. As usual with him, it’s BS.

So per our last email thread, I’m downgrading Oohbaby’s performace to D-. Only reason it’s not an F is that the hostage survived.

Read the following accurate account.

Philips’ first leap into the warm, dark water of the Indian Ocean hadn’t worked out as well. With the Bainbridge in range and a rescue by his country’s Navy possible, Philips threw himself off of his lifeboat prison, enabling Navy shooters onboard the destroyer a clear shot at his captors — and none was taken.

The guidance from National Command Authority — the president of the United States, Barack Obama — had been clear: a peaceful solution was the only acceptable outcome to this standoff unless the hostage’s life was in clear, extreme danger.

The next day, a small Navy boat approaching the floating raft was fired on by the Somali pirates — and again no fire was returned and no pirates killed. This was again due to the cautious stance assumed by Navy personnel thanks to the combination of a lack of clear guidance from Washington and a mandate from the commander in chief’s staff not to act until Obama, a man with no background of dealing with such issues and no track record of decisiveness, decided that any outcome other than a “peaceful solution” would be acceptable.

After taking fire from the Somali kidnappers again Saturday night, the on scene commander decided he’d had enough.

Keeping his authority to act in the case of a clear and present danger to the hostage’s
life and having heard nothing from Washington since yet another request to mount a rescue operation had been denied the day before, the Navy officer, Commander Frank Castellano, — unnamed in most media reports to date — decided the AK47 one captor had leveled at Philips’ back was a threat to the hostage’s life and ordered the NSWC team to take their shots.

Three rounds downrange later, all three brigands became enemy KIA and Philips was safe.

There is upside, downside, and spinside to the series of events over the last week that culminated in yesterday’s dramatic rescue of an American hostage.

Almost immediately following word of the rescue, the Obama administration and its supporters claimed victory against pirates in the Indian Ocean and [1] declared that the dramatic end to the standoff put paid to questions of the inexperienced president’s toughness and decisiveness.

Despite the Obama administration’s (and its sycophants’) attempt to spin yesterday’s success as a result of bold, decisive leadership by the inexperienced president, the reality is nothing of the sort. What should have been a standoff lasting only hours — as long as it took the USS Bainbridge and its team of NSWC operators to steam to the location — became an embarrassing four day and counting standoff between a ragtag handful of criminals with rifles and a U.S. Navy warship.

Of course I can hear people who have begun to show up here from the KosKiddie syncophant playground and Gestapo Headquarters already going on about how none of this is true…how “Fearless Leader”, with his amazing lack of experience and knowledge was the one who saved this gent, how if it was not for his decision making abilities and blah, blah blah…which, of course, is to be expected.

Frankly, I read this myself and took it with a bit of a grain of salt.  While it came from a very trusted friend, one can never be too sure.  That is, until today.  It seems that it is now being reported by World Net Daily that Obama actually DID delay the rescue by over 36 hours, and that everything in said letter above is not only true, but that there is even more to the story than what is inside the letter. However, while the Liberals over at Kos, D.U. and HuffPoo will believe anything stated in any Liberal/Left-Wing/Socialist rag without question, as the WND is NOT one of those types, they will claim that this is a non-reputable source and thus cannot be trusted.

Then again, anything that speaks ill of their hero and false god will always be looked at as being unreliable.  However, look at what we know about Obama, and you can see that the truth of the matter is far from what the White House is reporting.

The U.S. Military has just had their first taste of what it will be like with this usurper as their Commander in Chief.  They have just seen how innocent people’s lives will be taken for granted, while the evil of this earth will be allowed all the chances they can get.  The S.E.A.L. Team had several chances to end this situation as soon as they arrived on target.  However, Obama was playing politics with human lives…not just the hostage’s, but the lives of each and every military member, civilian, and anyone else not a pirate/terrorist on scene.  He showed the world that the lives of these three Islamic thugs meant far more than the life of their hostage and/or the lives of the brave men that were sent to end the situation/crisis.

I really do hope that the men and women serving in the military, whether they are enlisted or in the officer’s ranks, were paying very, VERY close attention to this.  I hope and pray that they are no longer harboring any illusions that their Commander in Chief is anything more than what they already knew he was, if not more so.  I hope this will lead to even more officers…maybe a few generals and admirals…joining in on the current law suit by the officers serving in Iraq to have Obama’s files opened so that we can, once and for all, make his status as an American officially noted and allow for any and all legal actions to begin.

This nation has been placed in great peril as of Jan 20th of this year.  We have someone in the White House that would not even salute the flag.  We have someone who, by his own admission and that of his staff is not permitted to even run for the office of the Presidency, let alone actually win.  We have a person sitting in the Oval Office who has surrounded himself with people who have unapologetically stated time and again that they want the united States brought down from the inside…and now they have the person in place to do just that.  Everything he has done since taking office on Jan. 20th has been one step closer to destroying this country and all that has made it what it is over the last 230+ years, and he has sworn to do even more.

Do not be silent on these issues.  Go and sign the petition demanding that his files and records be unsealed and open for inspection.  Make sure your voices are heard.  Attend the TEA Party rallies and let them know that we will not be made into a Socialist country.  Do not fall for the Obama Propaganda.  Do not allow yourself to be bullied by these angry thugs on the Left whose only desire is to destroy our strength, destroy our wealth and leave us open and helpless to our enemies.

Let your voice be heard now, for even now there are things in the works to silence any and all opposition to Obama and his cabal.  All that they claimed that Bush wanted to do, they ARE NOW DOING and in a far larger scope than could have ever been imagined.  Anyone who speaks out against Obama, or who gets close to making his records available ends up being visited by U.S. Marshalls.  It is just a matter of time before this ends up being the Germany of 1932-1938.

Support the members of our military…now more than ever.  Let them know that there are actually people in this country that are not buying into the lie, that we aren’t all brainwashed minions of the Left.  Stand up for them, because it is now very clear that things are worse for them now then even under Carter or Clinton.  They are all that stands between us and the destrction of our enemies…foreign AND domestic.

Speak up now…for tomorrow you may be paying the price for your silence.



  1. Thank you for this information. Having trouble getting a “friend” to even listen to my questions about Obama. I feel over whelmed about our country under this guy’s power.

    Again, thank you and our military.

  2. No problem. What kinds of things are you referring to? is there anything I can do to help you out? If there is, i have no problem doing all I can.

  3. I agree with your statement to the community to keep more in touch and involved in the country’s decisions making ect ect… how not to be swinged to the propaganda of the media and cover ups. i think the community and nation should take a more active role in government and as a whole keep whats right and just. However, i differ in some main points.

    1. I think a divided nation will not stand. A kingdom cant not be against itself or it will fall. therefore, once the President make a decision and has a plan. Follow it, you cant make the plan, who said anyone can do it better. lets not judge that,however we should support our leader. because he is in fact “our leader” no matter how you roll the dice.

    how you said that support our military, and fight our president doesnt make logical sense. They are in fact the one and the same. The military is lead by our President. This doesn’t mean let him do whatever he wants. this means debate rally, ect. ect. but with the right meaning. not to be against Obama, but to help Obama make the best possible decision. Then support whatever choice he does, if it is ethical, moral, and just even if you dont feel it is the best choice.

    2.We are a super power in the world, not a almighty power. we dont rule the world, we are not the one and only one and as a nation cannot go about do whatever we please. America is great! however, we are not the center of the universe. i distaste the fact, Obama delayed rescue attempts hours/days at a time, however, he needed to go through every possibility, every out come, weigh the pros and cons if you will. to attempt to do the greatest good possible. If anywhere Obama did anything unlawful or immoral, or unethical it should be brought to attention and be dealt with. however, if you just “dont like the way he does things” or “he doesn’t care about the little people” or anything along those lines, I think that is completely self centered and narrow-minded. How can you read Obama’s mind? how do you know what he is thinking. How is it you are make such a judgment without being in his positions. once again if he is unlawful, immoral, unethical, or any of the sort. Of course action needs to be taken.

    3. about “WAR FILES” about Iraq. I believe they should not be opened to the public as of right now. Due to the fact we are still in a war.(with what i do not know, bu our troops are still there) and if fact it should be kept secret until it is able to resurface.

    This doesnt mean never, it means not now. This requires a step of faith in a way. All files should in fact be opened to the public eventually, unaltered unless it harms the greatest security of the nation and it should become public domain to be scrutinized. However, now is not the right time, i feel.

    The unjust should be dealt with as soon as the point where the information is no longer needed to be veld in enigma. All cases should be dealt with international, and National laws. judges, the works! However, i am not sure when is the right time, it may be now

    I know this seems like something wrong. Delaying justice, and all the jazz. however, what is the true gain to do it right now! just this instant. as a nation we are already in a state of unrest, economical problems, and many more latent issues just waiting to burst. It is playing on that line of Wrong, and Right, the gray! however, what is the advantage of dealing with all the files right now, right this instant. I cannot give a time or date when they should, however, when it becomes advantageous to do so for the better of the nation as a whole, it should be dealt with swiftly and justly.

    4. you used a lot of pretty words, like the Russia of before, or fed lies and so on. however, where is the cold hard facts of corruption. Where is it unjust, immoral, unethical, unlawful in any way. Give examples, and give reasons please. I will decide on my own who to follow, but i would like all the information. This does not provide anything of substance besides your own opinion of corruption.

    I need supporting facts, reasons, and events. to back up your reasoning. rather than Obama is lies, don fall for “it”. What exactly is “it” it is to vague. I guess i am just to naive. i dont feel as if the government is trying to control me, which in fact i do believe they are. But as a already brainwashed citizen, i need cold hard fact and I cannot just blindly follow your way of thinking. Show me first and i will decide.

    I dont know much about this situation so i cannot say if it was handled in the best possible way in my opinion however, i would like to believe it was.

    “However, Obama was playing politics with human lives…” he is a politician.
    if he was a horse, i would expect him to be a horse.
    if he was a dog i expect him to be a dog.
    if he is a politician i expect him to be a politician.

    he has to juggle people’s lives. that’s just his job. he has to juggle the nation, other nations, bombs, wars, disputes, meetings, family, terrorists, ect ect… and i expect him to use politics because that’s what he does. I DO NOT want Obama, to become emotional, and disregard everything for the well being of the innocent, despite how wrong that sounds. I expect him to use what he knows, what he is good at, his talents, and attributes to solve the problem the best way he can. he is a politician so i expect him to use politics.

    He has to play with people’s lives, that’s just his job. And i hope that he did his best, despite the wrongs that occurred.
