IS JOE BIDEN A HYPOCRITE…AND AN ENABLER?
by Kerry Patton, SUA Staff
(Mar. 24, 2011) — Recently, the United States has witnessed government employees such as DEA Agent Daniel Offield and high ranking military officers such as Maj. Stefan Frederick Cook and Lt. COL Terry Lakin refusal to serve abroad. Some of these persons have been reassigned, fired, and even sentenced to prison. Each one of these individuals has their reason why they refused to serve abroad with Obama as Commander In Chief yet they all have one theme in common; his inability to adhere to the U.S. Constitution.
Many, to include Vice President Joe Biden, stated George W. Bush would face impeachment if he launched an attack on Iran. Today, those who expressed impeachment towards George Bush just implemented an action which Bush only considered. Instead of Iran, Obama chose Libya.
Without being a Constitutional attorney, one can look back and realize this past week’s activities in Libya should be construed an impeachable offense. This is known because the Senators of yesterday who now sit in the Executive Branch have told us so.
Our men and women protect and defend against all enemies foreign and domestic. They do this through understanding and enforcement laid within our Constitution. Indeed, many believe Obama should be impeached for this past week’s activities; however, such a concern is only miniscule in comparison to the real consequence which could come about from this recent endeavor.
The true concern Americans should have today is not whether Obama should be impeached rather, what happens to the greatest security apparatus in the world when its members refuse to adhere to UNLAWFUL orders? Offield, Cook, and Lakin refused service abroad because of question towards legalities of such operations. Two of the three questioned the legality of Obama serving as Commander in Chief.
Today, every military and federal employee, be it actively or passively, engaged with actions in Libya have a clear case NOT to partake in such actions. Of most concern, not only can one or two members make such a determination, a serious domino effect can later result crippling our national security apparatus. SECDEF Gates just expressed significant cuts to the military. Maybe, these cuts won’t be needed after all. We just may not have the military might we once had a week ago.
