I did my weekly stint on Frank Gaffney's show yesterday and we talked about the upcoming offensive in Kandahar and how the previous iteration in Marjah went and also the acquittals of the two SEALs and the last trial to come for Matthew McCabe.
Here is a transcript of my opening rant from the last time I guest hosted the show. Man I need to get me some interns too.
I want to start off today with a step outside my normal lane. I tend to stick with the military, but I got some thoughts about Barak Obama and this administration’s foreign policy that are driving me crazy. And I figured if I’m going crazy, that you guys ought to as well.
I guess the feeling that I have is that President Obama and his foreign policy team have taken the approach that our allies are our enemies and our enemies are our allies. They’ve pretty much flipped everything that has happened since the second world war on its head and I’m concerned about the long term relationships we’ve had with some of our best friends. I am going to diagnose it as “perpetual grad student syndrome”. What I mean by that is, you all have probably seen the picture of President Obama back in Occidental College days where he’s got that ridiculous hat on and he’s smoking either a joint or a cigarette, I don’t know which. Seems to be shooting the breeze with his buddies, all the smart kids fixing the world’s problems. You know they’d stay up all night smoking and drinking and wake up the next morning with a wicked hangover trying to remember what their cunning plan for world peace was. And all of a sudden, the idea that they were going to take the skinheads bowling doesn’t really seem like the brightest thing in the world to have done and they can’t remember why things were so crystal clear the night before. And in the bright light of day they don’t have a clue. They don’t even know what color the clue bag is.
