CIA Director Leon Panetta

I don’t know about all of you…but I have wondered why CIA Director Leon would open his pie-hole and telegraph the news regarding the possibility of Israel attacking Iran this spring. I’ve had various thoughts mulling around in my mind about this, so I thought maybe all of you could shout-out what you all think about Panetta doing this and the why of it.

You can read everything he said here, if you haven’t heard it broadcast everywhere early and often by now.

As a side-note: The Obama administration is against Israel attacking Iran. They want us to stay out of this unless Iran attacks the U.S. is in some sort of fashion and cripples our interests…whatever that’s supposed to mean. So…you can take that with a grain of salt or not.

I just have to wonder if Panetta is being used to telegraph this news via Dear Leader to Iran etc.

I caught this segment this morning and wanted to share it with you and see what you think.

This is what Gen. Jack Keane had to say about this:

A new report says that Israel is ready to launch an attack against Iran as early as this spring. Now, Iran is calling Israel a “cancer” and says that it is willing to help any nation or group that confronts it. U.S. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta spoke out saying that the U.S. is prepared to respond if we have to.

General Jack Keane joined Happening Now to discuss the history between the United States and Iran. Since Iran declared the U.S. their strategic enemy in 1980, they have been trying to drive us out of that region. “What they’re seeking is regional domination; they clearly want hegemony in the region where radical Islam is the dominating political and social influence.”

He thinks the biggest threat is that the Israelis have been very public about their plans, saying, “They’re actually saying that because they want the international community and the United States to get a lot tougher with Iran. They know there’s still an opportunity with crippling economic sanctions, with covert actions to force the Iranians to voluntarily give up the program.”

Keane believes the U.S. government has concerns about this Israeli attack because Iran would feel justified to retaliate against U.S. targets in the region such as the embassy in Iraq, military bases in Afghanistan, and other U.S. targets in the region, which would force some retaliation on our part.

In discussing Panetta’s statement about the U.S. being prepared, Keane thinks Panetta is just trying to influence the international community on his own to get additional sanctions against the Iranians.

So friends…add your Two-Cents in, there sure could be a lot of possibilities regarding this major issue, I’m very curious as to what yours are…some of you guys have much better ideas when it comes to issues like this. I think. (I’m smiling as I wrote that friends.)

  1. Obama”s surrogate mother was born in Iran; Valerie Jarrett. Something to think about.

  2. Just Da Facts says:

    Panetta is a worthless Muslim Coddling Commie. He probalbly just wanted to warn Iran so they can hide their nukes better and pre-emptively strike Israel.

  3. Does anyone here think there may be a possibility ‘O’ may do something militarily to Iran a few months before election time?

    …That is if Israel doesn’t first.

    • …or maybe Barry will have his new friends in Egypt go over to help Iran spank Israel real bad with their new toys that we gave them.

      • Lucky…have you seen the news today where the O-Team is threatening to cut off $$$ to Egypt now? After this same team helped get rid of an ally in Egypt…Mubarak must be so proud!

        ‘Mission Accomplished!’

        • Barry must be confused again with his countries and stuff. It’s time for another vacation.

          • Good-Morning Lucky…

            You got that right…wished he’d take one permanently to one of those 7 states he added on to the United States…destination unknown!

  4. Interesting that (using the same words that we use in describing Liberals), Iran calls Israel “a cancer” and “a tumor”.

    • The terms are used in both cases because they apply in both cases. For the US it is as they say time to ‘cut and run’ when it comes to Israel. The US taxpayer has invested hundreds of billions of dollars in Israel and received nothing positive. The ‘return on investment’ has been zero. As it now stands, a war between Iran and Israel may be in the best interest of Israel but it is not in the interest of the United States. If the US took part it would be nothing but more wasted lives and more wasted money.

  5. Check this out ~

    Iran threatens to release letter from Obama. When you click this link, there is a lot of other good information in the blog itself if your interested.

  6. Hope Israel’s first strike is on top of the head of the Ayatollah and the Mullah’s that cause all the trouble, Cut off the head of the snake first.

  7. Romney & Congressman Peter King blast Panetta ~

    Here’s Romney regarding announcing withdrawal date from Aghanistan ~


    And here’s King taking Panetta to the woodshed regarding Israel/Iran.

    I can’t find the link for this, but I heard him this morning on Fox blast Panetta and his big mouth type of thing. (sorry, may search some later, busy at home)

    Plus…check this out. Ties with South America.

    Just thought I’d throw all this in here.

    Plus, we can’t forget about the Straights of Hormuz and our mother-ship being sent there too.

    Yeah…sanctions work so well!

  8. Sorry above link didn’t work.
    As for the question of the day; Yes I agree with the generals statement. Israel is being surrounded by more and more hostile govts. Make no mistake the End Goal of Islam is for world domination(coexist yeah right). Israel will have no choice but to strike, thier own existance depends on it. As far as strikes against us, count on it. Our own survival depends on our own ability to defend ourselves. I have no doubts in our troops or even our individual selves (well some of us anyway). What I doubt is OUR GOVTS WILL and abilities.
    Frankly I’ve stopped worrying about Isreal (make no mistake, I care very much for Israel)after having studied Ezekial 38&39. As for our govt not so much. I foresee rough seas ahead. Keep your powder dry and LAL. You liberals save your pennies for your jizya.

    • Hi Dirty Al…

      Were you referring to links above in my post…or did you have one in your post that didn’t work and not there anymore?

  9. get ready and be prepared

  10. Lets see how this goes. I believe its apropos and sums up how I feel.

    • Sorry guys this was supposed to be a link to “STUCK MOJO’S,Open Season”. Yeah I know its Metal/Rap,but still pretty cool. I like to watch or listen to it before I go to the range. Check it out on Youtube.

  11. This may, or may not be an interesting read to some of you.

    Thought I’d throw it in here because I’ve heard same news via talk-radio.

  12. Btw…what do you think is gonna happen to this guy?

  13. Just Da Facts says:

    The Georgia Administrative Courts just handed a victory to Obama and his Lawyer who did not even bother to show up for their Ballot Eligibility hearing. Naturally they should have lost by default and they should have been held in contempt of court. But our system is hopelessly corrupt and we are now officially stuck with Obama and his defacto dictatorship. Abandon all hope people, the fix is in. Our country has been overthrown in a bloodless coup.

    • Just Da Facts…

      Yep…heard it on the radio, and a good friend on this site just posted that news for us in case we hadn’t heard the decision too.

      It’s a done deal now before we get to election time…we’ll defeat him…come hell or high water, it is written!

      • bigtimer
        I spent a good bit of time trying to find information on Judge Malihi last night after the judges decision was posted here, I can find nothing on this judge, google only has links about this decision but nothing on the judge, I went to Discover the networks and up pops the powered by google and nothing on him, a site I visit that gives the scoop on politicians and lawyers and judges was down, Is stated that he was an Iranian Muslim, everything about him has been scrubbed from the internet, Maybe RedState could use his expertise and do some digging for us.

        • ga steve…Did you try Wiki?

          Not the best at times…but usually gives an over-all view about people and their history type of thing.

  14. Speaking of military, war, Iran check out this…see if you’re not colored beet red too!

    • Seditious,seditious! “Disobedience to Tyrants is Odedience to God.” What are they doiing to our Military? They are forciing thier PC group think, on everyone. Cut to the chase/end game;no one has a Higher power/no moral code but to follow orders. No one to question authority. Just follow orders. This will only equate to citizens beiing marched to Gulags and mass graves.

      • Dirty Al…

        I knew others had to be as angry as I am about this. ~ I can’t express my anger ladylike…but I’m danged angry.

        What the hell has happened to our military…it’s called infiltration of PC into our military too…with the Big-Wigs…took a few decades…but they’ve done it.

        As you know, this is just one of many examples of how to not win and fight, be informed…etc etc.

        Btw…I want you to know from our home to yours…we are eternally grateful for your service.

        • Big thanks again. I’m having a real hard time putting in to words, what I feel about this and other related subjects. I go from anger to sadness to frustration. My Dad served ,I served,my daughter is serviing and I have a grandson that wants nothing else but to be a Marine. Things keep going the way they are…HELL with it. I DON’T WANT MY GRANDSON TO BE A JACKBOOTED THUG SERVING A TYRANT.

          • Whooo…I had to make sure, I didn’t drop an “F”Bomb. I sure wanted to.

          • Lol Dirty Al….I know what you mean. That’s when I usually say friggin’ or something like that. 😉

            By the way…when you want to insert your link…you don’t have to put it in first…you can go ahead and write what you want…then space the words, or go down below (hit enter to go down below)after you’re done writing…and then insert the link…that link will stay with you until you’re ready to insert it, whenever you want.

            Hope I’m not confusing you again. 😉

  15. Well, once again some of us, me included, got excited over another attempt in a court to disprove Obama’s citizenship. Having spent a few hours in research it is plain that this is a futile undertaking. The U.S. accepts the legal gobblygook of jus soli, a legal term meaning “Rite of the soil.” This avenue to citizenship has resulted in the term ‘Anchor Baby” meaning a child born to two illegal aliens within our borders is a citizen. This also applies to Puerto Rico, Virgin Islands and even the Northern Mariana Islands. If I were wanting to have documentation showing my citizenship where that condition was somewhat disputable, I would choose a place where the Bureau of Vital Statistics was of poor quality. The state of Hawaii was admitted to statehood in August 1959. Mr. Obama was born in August 1961 two years after statehood. I suspect that Hawaii’s Bureau of Vital Statistics was still somewhat antiquated. Whatever the case the quest for disclaimer of citizenship will never come to be successful. It is merely a detour from what is important, the poor, possible illegal, functions of a president. Therefore let’s devote our time to working tirelessly on what matters. I pledge myself to do that.

    • I believe you are correct–even though I believe the accusations are right and he is not eligible, my own little sampling tells me that even those who don’t like him , refuse to believe he is ineligible.

      Another action by his administration:

      “A month ago, we joked when we said that for Obama to get the unemployment rate to negative by election time, all he has to do is to crush the labor force participation rate to about 55%. Looks like the good folks at the BLS heard us: it appears that the people not in the labor force exploded by an unprecedented record 1.2 million. No, that’s not a typo: 1.2 million people dropped out of the labor force in one month! So as the labor force increased from 153.9 million to 154.4 million, the non institutional population increased by 242.3 million meaning, those not in the labor force surged from 86.7 million to 87.9 million. Which means that the civilian labor force tumbled to a fresh 30 year low of 63.7% as the BLS is seriously planning on eliminating nearly half of the available labor pool from the unemployment calculation.”

  16. What the heck…may as well put these cheery stories here for the heck of it.

    That torture to this guy sounded like so much fun.

    I’m sure you all know about this…just going to throw it in anyway.

  17. Just read this…Panetta says we could take on N.K. and Iran simultaneously.


    What say you?

  18. Okay….check this out regarding relationship between Dear Leader & Bibi.

    I know I’m basically here alone with many of the posts…hope some check them out later.

    Back to watching our movie. ~ Later

    Here’s one more add-on.

  19. A third elective Arab war in one decade? We make the British Empire look a bunch of Bahais. Events are currently aligned to cut the War Department’s budget in a major way. Many interests (both foreign and domestic) are threatened by this. They will do everything in their power to stir up trouble with enemies real and imagined. The entire “defense” and “intelligence” communites will grind these organs day and night. Do not be seduced by their warmongering. The only interest we have in the Middle East is finding the exit.

  20. I think the General is correct, Israel will have to strike Iran, the jews will always be hated, strike or not. At least after a decisive strike they will be hated and “respected”. The rest of the Arab nations wont do shit. They know Iran has been spouting off for far too long.
