Obama and Al Qaeda


September 23-25, 2013 — Obama and Al Qaeda: United in Kenya and Syria

President Obama and his “Responsibility to Protect” policy crew of UN ambassador Samantha Power, National Security Adviser Susan Rice, and deputy National Security Adviser Ben Rhodes have not only made common cause with Al Qaeda-affiliated Jabhat al Nusra and Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant terrorists in Syria but by pressuring Kenya’s government internationally have weakened Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta and Vice President William Ruto. The Kenyan government has been battling against Al Shabab Islamist terrorists from Somalia who killed scores of shoppers at Nairobi’s Westgate Mall and may have been behind a costly fire that destroyed the international terminal at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport.

Obama could have given Kenya’s government a boost by visiting the nation of his alleged father’s birth during his recent trip to Africa. However, Obama has supported the International Criminal Court genocide proceedings against Kenyatta and Ruto over allegations that they were behind violence against supporters of Obama’s distant cousin, Raila Odinga, during 2007 and 2008 election violence that pitted members of Ruto’s Kalenjin tribe against Odinga’s Luo tribe. The Kalenjins were allied with Kenyatta’s Kikuyu tribe against Odinga and the Luos. Obama is half Luo. Odinga lost the 2007 presidential election to Mwai Kibaki, who was supported by Ruto and Kenyatta. Odinga, who was educated in the German Democratic Republic, became Prime Minister in 2008. Odinga and his “Orange” revolution, inspired by George Soros’s “themed” revolutions elsewhere, lost to Kenyatta in the 2013 election and they boycotted Kenyatta’s inauguration. Kenyatta is the son of Jomo Kenyatta, Kenya’s first president who was despised by Barack Obama, Sr. for not appointing him Finance Minister because of what the elder Obama charged was his Luo identity.

Ruto has asked for a postponement of the ICC trial so that he can return to Kenya from The Hague to handle the Westgate terrorist attack. Many African leaders, including the president of Uganda, Attorney General of Tanzania, Prime Minister of Ethiopia, and Foreign Ministers of Rwanda, Burundi, and Eritrea have complained that the ICC trials of Ruto and the planned trial of Kenyatta in November are harming Kenya. Obama bypassed Kenya on his recent trip to Africa, a clear vote of no confidence in Kenya and a signal to Al Shabab in neighboring Somalia that Kenya does not have the support of the United States.

The ICC proceedings against Kenyan officials are considered a joke in Kenya and elsewhere in Africa. There have been charges by African leaders that the ICC is “hunting” African leaders. Ruto and former radio journalist Joshua arap Sang have asked the ICC to transfer jurisdiction to Kenya but the Soros R2P gang has adamantly refused, even rejecting a request by the African Union to transfer the proceedings to either Kenya or Tanzania.

Some prosecution witnesses have been found to be frauds. However, former ICC prosecutor Luis Moreno Ocampo, who brought the genocide charges against Kenyatta, Ruto, and five others, has, himself, been accused of the rape of a journalist in South Africa and of protecting pedophiles in Argentina, has pursued Kenyan leaders with a peculiar zeal and the support of Obama. But, so far, the ICC failed to get a single conviction. In addition, Ocampo’s Wikipedia entry has been purged of any negative information from his past in Argentina and his sexual indiscretions in South Africa.

The blood of the shoppers who died in this partly Israeli-owned Nairobi mall is on the hands of the Luo-aligned Obama.

Kenyan Industrializtion Minister Henry Kogsei, Cabinet Secretary Francis Mauthara, and Police Commissioner Mohammed Hussein Ali, three of a group that became known as the “Ocampo Six,” were acquitted. The cases against Ruto, Kenyatta, and Sang are as weak as those brought against those acquitted. Ocampo’s deputy prosecutor, Fatou Bensouda of Gambia, succeeded him as chief prosecutor in 2012, has been an apologist for her nation’s dictatorial president Yahya Jammeh. Ruto, Kenyatta, and Sang are now known as the “Bensouda Three.”

Secretary of State John Kerry recently hosted Somalian self-declared president Hussein Sheik Mohamed in Washington. Mohamed is linked to the Muslim Brotherhood in Somalia, which, in turn, has connections to Al Shabab. Kerry elicited strong support from Mohamed for the Obama administration’s support for Syrian rebels, including Al Qaeda linked rebels allied with Al Shabab, in the Syrian civil war. Mohamed seeks to expand Islamist influence in Somalia to the more secular autonomist region of Puntland and the independent Republic of Somaliland, which has been separated from Somalia since 1991, in a “federal framework.” There is no indication anywhere in the world that any Islamists favor federalism in any form but total submission to a radical Islamist “ummah” or nation operating under the most radical interpretations of sharia law.
