Under The Radar: What Is Really Rankling Team Obama About The Wiki-Leaks Dump?

Obama And Clinton - What Are They Really So Upset About?

The Wiki-Leaks drama continues – replete with some major mis-direction.  As I write this post, Drudge Report’s headliners are that Wiki-Leaks is currently under a massive cyber-attack – and that the leaks include revelations that Hillary Clinton sent some confidential messages requesting information on the psyche of Argentina’s President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner.

 For instance, via Drudge from Tim Johnson of McClatchy Newspapers comes this lead-in:

 “MEXICO CITY — Seeking a frank evaluation of Argentina’s president, the office of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton asked the U.S. Embassy in Buenos Aires late last year to delve into her psyche.

“How is Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner managing her nerves and anxiety?” asked a cable dated Dec. 31, 2009, and signed “CLINTON” in all capital letters….”

 Wow.  Now, that’s some story right there – as if embassies are just now being used to gather intelligence on foreign leaders’ personalities, health issues and policies.

 What I’d like to know more about is something the U.S. government and its friends in big media are never going to give us.  It looks to me like the most embarrassing item for the United States on the Wiki-Leaks menu is another revelation of very ugly details about the duplicity of our supposed great ally – Saudi Arabia.

 We sell arms to the Saudis.  We buy oil from them.  Our presidents show deference (in the most embarrassing ways) to them as friends of The United States and as partners in combating terrorism.  That’s all very nice pabulum for public consumption.

 But always look beneath the radar, says I.  Where does the U.S. government want us to concentrate our attention during this Wiki-Leaks hysteria – and where would President Obama prefer that we not look too closely?

 The Saudis engineer de facto purchases of major universities from us, via cash donations that are used to construct buildings dedicated to Middle Eastern studies (read that: Islamic studies).  Cash never comes without expectations from the donor.

 They fund the construction of mosques and export imams to our shores – Muslim leaders who preach Sharia, jihad and hatred for Western Civilization.

 So what has really caused the greatest embarrassment and consternation among the Obama administration insiders?  My best guess is that it is Wiki-Leaks’ spilling of the beans that the Saudis continue to provide financial support for the Al Quaeda terrorists who wage outright war against our best and bravest overseas – in Afghanistan and Iraq.

 And that is the one issue that my money says is not going to appear on the mainstream media’s agenda for your consumption in the days and weeks to come.

About John L. Work

John Lloyd Work has taken the detective thriller genre and woven an occasional political thread throughout his books, morphing what was once considered an arena reserved for pure fiction into believable, terrifying, futuristic, true-to-life “faction”. He traveled the uniformed patrolman’s path, answering brutal domestic violence calls, high speed chases, homicides, suicides, armed robberies, breaking up bar fights, and the accompanying sporadic unpredictable moments of terror - which eventually come to all police officers, sometimes when least expected. He gradually absorbed the hard fact that the greatest danger a cop faces comes in the form of day-to-day encounters with emotionally disturbed, highly intoxicated people. Those experiences can wear a cop down, grinding on his own emotions and psyche. Prolonged exposure to the worst of people and people at their worst can soon make him believe that the world is a sewer. That police officer’s reality is a common thread throughout Work’s crime fiction books. Following his graduation from high school, Work studied music and became a professional performer, conductor and teacher. Life made a sudden, unexpected turn when, one afternoon in 1976, his cousin, who eventually became the Chief of the Ontario, California, Police Department, talked him into riding along during a patrol shift. The musician was hooked into becoming a police officer. After working for two years as a reserve officer in Southern California and in Boulder, Colorado, he joined the Longmont, Colorado Police Department. Work served there for seven years, investigating crimes as a patrolman, detective and patrol sergeant. In 1989 he joined the Adams County, Colorado Sheriff’s Office, where he soon learned that locking a criminal up inside a jail or prison does not put him out of business. As a sheriff’s detective he investigated hundreds of crimes, including eleven contract murder conspiracies which originated “inside the walls”. While serving on the Adams County North Metro Gang Task Force and as a member of the Colorado Security Threat Intelligence Network Group (STING), Work designed a seminar on how a criminal’s mind formulates his victim selection strategy. Over a period of six years he taught that class in sheriff’s academies and colleges throughout Colorado. He saw the world of crime both inside the walls and out on the streets. His final experiences in the criminal law field were with the Colorado State Public Defender’s Office, where for nearly two years he investigated felonies from the defense side of the Courtroom. Twenty-two years of observing human nature at its worst, combined with watching some profound changes in America’s culture and political institutions, provided plenty of material for his first three books. A self-published author, he just finished writing his tenth thriller.
