ANOTHER SHOE DROPS?
by Sharon Rondeau
(Feb. 24, 2013) — National Security Council spokesperson Tommy Vietor has tendered his resignation from the regime effective March 1, 2013, but few news outlets are reporting it.
An article from The Los Angeles Times reprinted in The Chicago Tribune on Sunday describes Vietor’s departure as a “changing of the guard.” Vietor has been in his position just over two years and has reportedly “spent nearly his entire career working for Barack Obama.”
On February 4, Vietor had announced that Samantha Power, Obama’s “top human rights official” who advocated American intervention to overthrow Libyan dictator Muommar Gaddafi during the “Arab Spring” of 2010 and 2011, had resigned.
Power’s husband and former director of Obama’s Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, Cass Sunstein, had returned to teach at Harvard University prior to the commencement of the fall 2012 semester.
A search for other news services’ reporting of Vietor’s impending departure in less than one week was not readily found as of this writing:
The Los Angeles Times/Chicago Tribune article states that Vietor learned from former White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs to “yell at reporters when he disliked a story.” Obama’s former communications director, Anita Dunn, had proudly stated that the 2008 Obama campaign had “controlled the media” such that Obama did not have to answer tough questions.
The media never vetted Obama for the presidency, and some have asked how he was able to obtain a national security clearance in light of the questions regarding his citizenship, birthplace, parentage, and authenticity of his short- and long-form birth certificates. A law enforcement investigation has also stated that his Selective Service registration form is a “computer-generated forgery.”
On October 20, 2012, The New York Times reported that the Obama regime had been in “secret exchanges” with Iran about its nuclear program, but Vietor had denied the claim. The Times stood by its story.
On February 27, 2011, Vietor stated that “The United States strongly condemns the Iranian government’s organized intimidation campaign and arrests of political figures, human rights defenders, political activists, student leaders, journalists and bloggers. The Iranian government also continues to deny its citizens access to information by jamming satellite transmissions and blocking internet sites.”
Iran has imprisoned a Christian pastor and American citizen who is undergoing torture, attempted mind control and other abuses in one of the country’s worst prisons. A letter recently written by Pastor Saeed Abedini states, in part:
They are trying to put me under such horrific pressures (that are sometimes unbearable) so that they can show me that my faith is empty and not real. After all of these pressures, after all of the nails they have pressed against my hands and feet, they are only waiting for one thing…for me to deny Christ.
The White House and State Department have asked for Saeed’s release, but some in Congress have said that they had not done enough. White House Press Secretary Jay Carney politely asked the Iranians to “release Mr. Abedini,” citing a lack of “transparency” in the proceedings, at least part of which Saeed was not allowed to attend.
The Obama regime has prided itself on its own “transparency” despite the questions about Obama’s background and documentation.
Vietor also had “flatly denied” that Obama or anyone in the White House had given a “stand-down order” on the evening of September 11 after the Benghazi outpost came under fire by terrorists.
On Friday, Vietor told the press that the Obama White House had been discussing what it might disclose to members of the Senate Intelligence Committee regarding the September 11, 2012 attack on a U.S. outpost in Benghazi, Libya which left four Americans dead and has caused a delay in the confirmation of Obama’s pick for Defense Secretary, former Sen. Chuck Hagel. Vietor noted that testimony from former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and outgoing Defense Secretary Leon Panetta was provided as well as “10,000 pages of documents” and other information.
Vietor is departing following the exodus of a majority of Obama’s cabinet, including EPA administrator Lisa Jackson, who is under investigation for using an email account with an alias to conduct government communications.
It has been rumored that indictments of some kind have been submitted to a federal court charging Obama and Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke with undisclosed crimes. Obama has been accused of treason and has still not told Congress where he was or what he was doing on the night of the Benghazi attack.
Several people in Obama’s Chicago circle of acquaintances have been incarcerated in federal prison for various crimes, with Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr., a former Obama campaign co-chair, awaiting sentencing at the end of June.
Update, February 25, 2013: The Post & Email contacted the Los Angeles Times reporter who broke the story of Vietor and others’ departure from the Obama regime as to when Vietor might have submitted his resignation, but she did not know the date.
