Almost the entirety of the Main News Media is delving into the legality or lack off, regarding the Michael Flynn issue. Not a single one of them has addressed the WHY?
Why did Obama and his administration, literally at the very end of his second term, attempt and then succeeded, in implicating a patriotic three-star American General; costing him his job, the loss of his reputation, his impoverishment and the possibility of going to prison?
WHY is not a single member of the so called ‘reporters’ bothering to take on the task, of doing an in depth investigation regarding the reason (or reasons) such a decorated military officer, who had served his country with distinction for 33 years was now being vilified and almost accused of treason?
Any decent reporter who wants to do an in-depth investigation, should ask himself/ herself, WHY a highly decorated American officer, who was assigned to the hotbeds of Iraq and Afghanistan theaters of war, as well as several assignments in the highest echelons of Intelligence in the USA, was being hounded? Someone, who had an unblemished record until very recently, was ambushed and disgraced? A subject worthy of a Pulitzer Prize.
I am therefore endeavoring to fill the gap in this article, by putting events in a timeline sequence for simplicity and flow of events.
Please notice, that most of Flynn’s assignments were with intelligence, especially Counter Terrorism and Islamic radicalism.
He served as the director of intelligence of the United States Central Command from June 2007 to July 2008; as the director of intelligence of the Joint Staff from July 2008 to June 2009, then the director of intelligence of the International Security Assistance Force in Afghanistan, from June 2009 to October 2010.
In September 2011, Flynn was promoted to Lieutenant General, and assigned as assistant director of national intelligence, in the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (DNI).
On April 17, 2012, President Obama nominated Flynn to be the 18th director of the Defense Intelligence Agency. Flynn took command of the DIA in July 2012. He simultaneously became commander of the Joint Functional Component Command for Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance, and chair of the Military Intelligence Board.
On 12th August 2012, the Defense Intelligence Agency (under General Flynn) issued a formerly classified report “SECRET//NOFORN”, predicting, that the chaos in Syria, was creating conditions that could allow al Qaeda in Iraq to make a comeback, and declare an Islamic caliphate. The report, accurately predicted much of what had come to pass in Iraq since Obama’s withdrawal of American troops.
Obama ignored repeated warnings from the intelligence community, America’s allies, and even his own national security team.
In October 2012, Flynn announced plans to release his paper “VISION2020: Accelerating Change Through Integration”, a broad look at how the Defence Intelligence Agency, must transform itself to meet the national security challenges for the 21st Century.
It was meant to emphasize “integration, interagency teamwork and innovation of the whole workforce, not just the technology but the people.” Michael Flynn was trying to streamline DIA by getting rid of unnecessary duplication and overlapping personnel.
In June 2013, Michael Flynn, became the first U.S. officer, to ever be allowed inside the GRU (Main Directorate of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation) headquarters in Moscow, at the invitation of the GRU chief, General Igor Sergun.
Please be aware that, until this moment of his life, there was not a single adverse report, from anyone in the chain of command in the last 32 years, that General Flynn was an indecisive, intolerant or an insubordinate military officer.
Michael Flynn’s future starts slowly to unravel for the worst, because of the personal opinions of Stefan Helper, who had worked for three Republican presidents, and was a long-time informant for the American and British Intelligence communities.
He had a February 2014 encounter with General Flynn at a London intelligence conference. Halper became allegedly so alarmed, by Flynn’s close association with a Russian woman, that a Halper associate expressed concerns to American authorities, that Flynn may have been compromised by Russian intelligence.
Ironically, these are similar ‘concerns’ – by Obama’s intelligence people – regarding Donald J Trump also, being compromised by a Russia female. Can you see a pattern?
All of a sudden, there were innuendoes, that some of Flynn’s colleagues, had become very concerned with Flynn’s purportedly chaotic management style, and increasingly hard-edged views about counterterrorism. According to some Pentagon officials, his superiors viewed him as insubordinate. In mid-2014, his two-year term at the DIA was not extended by Obama.
On April 30, 2014, Flynn announced his retirement effective later in 2014, about a year earlier than he had been scheduled to leave his position.
In reality, he was forced out of the DIA after allegedly clashing with superiors (mainly Obama) over his purportedly chaotic management style and vision for the agency.
In one final interview as DIA director, General Flynn said that he felt like a lone voice – in Obama’s circle – for concluding, that the United States was less safe from the threat of Islamic terrorism in 2014, than it was prior to the 911 Twin Towers attacks.
He had no doubt, that he was forced into early retirement, for repeatedly questioning the Obama administration’s utterly false public narrative, that al Qaida was close to defeat. Flynn retired from the U.S. Army with 33 years of service on August 7, 2014.
On November 10, 2015, Flynn gave an interview to the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR) “Lessons Learned project”.
The documents shockingly reveal, that many high-ranking military officials, were generally of the opinion, that the Afghan war was unwinnable, but the politicians in Obama’s administration, deliberately kept this hidden from the American public.
These documents also reveal, that Flynn was obviously unhappy about the state of affairs. Please notice, that in most of the General’s assignments regarding Intelligence and Counter Terrorism, he was dealing with Islam and Muslims.
Please be aware, that Michel Flynn, was and is a registered Democrat, having grown up in a “very strong Democrat family”.
However, as a military officer, he was not willing to be in lock step with what he considered, Obama’s spinelessness vis a vis the enemies of the USA, especially Muslims and Islam, both in the USA and outside.
As a patriotic American, Obama and Hillary Clinton were the antagonists of everything Flynn believed in and strived to protect. Everything they attempted during Obama’s eight years, only helped produce chaos in the Arab world, increased the power of the Caliphate and literally undermined American security and respect around the world. The Benghazi debacle, was the end result of Hillary and Obama’s unwarranted and illegal interference in Libya’s internal affairs. More Libyans died after that intervention, than died allegedly under their leader Qaddafi.
Therefore, these were the reasons that Obama and his henchmen in the Deep State (the SWAMP) had every motive to destroy Flynn. So much so, that:
Obama had to warn the future president, Donald J Trump, to be aware of only two serious enemies: Kim Jong Un of North Korea and General Michael Flynn.
But Donald Trump, true to his methodology of making his own assessments, ignored Obama’s advice, and intended to make General Flynn as his top National Security Advisor. This was like a slap to Obama’s face.
This is why, Flynn was a keynote speaker during the first night of 18th July 2016 Republican National Convention, when he denounced Hillary, and called ”Lock her Up”.
This act alone, sealed his fate as far as Obama and all his underlings in the Intelligence Services were concerned. He was totally against Obama’s policies of supporting the Muslim Brotherhood; under estimating ISIS; and always apologising to the whole world – especially Muslims – about America’s alleged misdeeds.
On November 18, 2016, Flynn accepted Trump’s offer for the position of National Security Advisor against the unsolicited advice of Obama.
On November 20 2016, General Flynn, advised all the members of Intelligence community to access IQ al Rassooli, if they want to learn about Islam and Muslims. He knew very well, that it is impossible to ever bring about Democracy and the Rule of Law, to any Muslim country or people, since the foundations of Sharia (Muhammad’s Quran & Sunna), is the nemesis of all civilized ideas and concepts. In the USA, Sharia is most definitely the archenemy of the US Constitution. Here is that article: Team Trump’s Message: The Clash of Civilizations Is Back.
Michael Flynn, like IQ al Rassooli, has absolutely no doubt, that the greatest threat to the USA (and the whole non-Muslim world) in the 21st century, is the relentless spread and implementation of Sharia through “Stealth Jihad”, that should be vehemently countered by all concerned world leaders, at the earliest possible time.
Regrettably, through their subterfuge and illegal trap, Obama and his henchmen, succeeded in eliminating General Flynn as a threat, by forcing Donald Trump to remove him as his Intelligence advisor.
Fortunately, for justice to be served at last, the latest information released by the Justice Department’s motion to dismiss the case it brought against Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, confirms the significance of a Jan. 5, 2017, meeting at the Obama White House.
It was at this meeting, that Obama personally gave guidance to key officials, who would be tasked with protecting his administration’s utilization of secretly funded Clinton campaign research – which alleged Donald Trump was involved in a treasonous plot to collude with Russia – from being discovered, or stopped by the incoming administration.
What transpired in this meeting between Obama and his subordinates, prove that it was Obama, who not only over ruled the idea of closing the file on Flynn, but was also the instigator of a witch hunt, to subvert and ensnare him, and at the same time, undermine President-elect Trump’s triumph.
As far as I know, never in the 242 years’ history of the Republic, had any president attempted to overthrow, in a coup d’etat, a duly elected new president.
So far, America’s so called Justice system has been extremely lax and or one sided, since not a single actor (Democrat) in Obama’s administration has been convicted of any crime, no matter how egregious many of them have been.
Hopefully, under Attorney General Barr’s watch, decent and unblemished members of the Justice department will finally prevail and bring true Justice back to the USA. Whether or not Justice will be served, remains to be seen.
Again I ask, if tens of millions of Democrat or undecided Americans, will continue voting for Mayors, Governors and Politicians who are completely devoid of fairness, truthfulness, the rule of Law and sagacity, in November 2020?
