Like many Kossacks, I listened to President Obama's State of the Union addressTuesday night with great interest. Leading into the election year, I wanted hints of his campaign strategy and any bold proposals he would put out there to challenge the Republican establishment. But while reading media analysis I came across another media story: US Navy Seals liberated an American woman and a Danish man from Somalia. Suddenly I realized that, in failing to read between the lines, I missed what Obama was really saying. Encoded in the State of the Union was a code to send the Navy Seals in on the rescue mission, which I dub "Operation Spilled Milk".
More facts below the fold.
We shouldn't be surprised President Obama is a fan of the Navy Seals. From sniping Somali pirates in 2009, to last year's heroic killing of Osama bin Ladin, the Seals have been the enforcement arm of the Obama national security apparatus.
I noted that yesterday's Somali raid news followed the State of the Union address. Prior to the killing of Osama bin Ladin in 2011 Obama made his correspondents dinner speech dissing Donald Trump and the birther movement.
Clearly we're starting to see a pattern of Obama using widely televised speeches and events to signal to American Special Forces when to take actions against American's enemies. We've already seen Obama tame lawless Somalia and kill America's greatest enemy
There have been more speeches than that. In fact, in his first year in office, President Obama gave more primetime speeches than any other president. These were often criticized by the media, who saw ad revenue drop. But maybe the reason wasn't because he wanted air time, but because America was facing a greater existential threat than we knew.
Conservatives tried to assure us that Bush needed to suspend the Constitution because of "national security" and used the fact that there hadn't been a major terror attack as proof that Bush was working. Using there same logic, with the additional facts that major military operations have taken place following two of Obama's speech, and we can make the case that every time Obama is addressing America, he is killing America's enemies.
Which makes you wonder, when Fox news decided not to air a primetime President Obama's third primetime speech in 2009, were they threatening America's national security? Could they, by not airing the speech, have caused embedded agents to not move?
Obviously we can't prove that Fox directly enabled America's enemies by snubbing Obama. But there is a good chance. And the Obama administration clearly couldn't call Fox out on it. The economy was fragile, there was a swine flu epidemic and hearing of a potential threat to America could have shaken the already damaged nation. Continued use of the speech system also requires they can't let our enemies know how or when they signal US Special Forces to move.
So I can't prove Obama signaled Navy Seals during the SOTU address. But I believe he did, using the "No use crying of spilled milk" as the code word. (Seriously, can you think of any other reason he'd stick that lame joke in there?).
So it's time to put America's enemies on notice: Next time Obama speaks, listen closely. That odd phrase, alliterative sentence or odd joke you hear may be followed by the shattering of your windows and the cold muzzle of a Navy Seal's gun to the back of your head.
Come Obama's nomination acceptance speech, you're a dead man, Ahmadinejad
