CIA Chief Warned Israel Not to Bomb Iran in Secret Visit (Zero throws Israel under his bus, again)
The director of the CIA was recently sent on a secret mission to Israel to warn its leaders not to launch a surprise attack on Iran without notifying the Obama administration, the Times of London reported on Thursday. FOX News could not immediately confirm the report. As Benjamin Netanyahu, the Israeli prime minister, prepares to visit Washington, it emerged on Thursday that Leon Panetta went to Israel two weeks ago. He sought assurances from Netanyahu and Ehud Barak, the defense minister, that their hawkish new government would not attack Iran without alerting Washington. Concerns have been rising that Netanyahu could...

Obama selects Leon Panetta to run the CIA? Why not Oprah?
If anyone needed more proof that Democrats are children who truly don’t understand how the world works, the selection of lifelong party hack Leon Panetta as the new Director of the Central Intelligence Agency should blow away all doubt.
Barack Obama indicated he picked Panetta because he is thought of as a good manager who understands government bureaucracy. The unspoken “attributes” Panetta brings are his naďve objections to the methods of modern spying and counter intelligence operations. His pronouncement that America “must not use torture under any circumstances” elevates his selection from stupid to dangerous.
To a Democrat lawyer who was a 1st Lieutenant in the Army, understanding why terrorists cannot be treated like bank robbers is indeed a daunting task. But someone whose naivety matched his own was the quality Obama wanted as he builds his Administration. The importance of the job means nothing.
Obama apparently thinks that Panetta’s total lack of experience or qualifications makes him the perfect man to protect us in these dangerous times. That this makes no sense means nothing.
Obama could have tapped Oprah Winfrey as the new CIA Director and done better given his rationale. Oprah hates torture and can manage people.
Oprah has managed more money than Panetta has ever administered. She probably has personally met and spent time with many of the world’s leaders. Notwithstanding the questionable virility of most Democrat politicians, Oprah would have no trouble out crying Panetta at press conferences as she condemned water boarding.
Certainly Oprah is against torture and would be more able to sway public opinion against water boarding and such nasty practices as the dreaded underwear on the head torture.
Oprah could personally fund the new “Humanitarian Desk” at The Company. That would save money for Obama. Panetta couldn’t do that.
Oprah would have to give up her show, but she was doing that anyway. She could have Friday afternoon specials where she could put her policy decisions up for a vote by the ladies in her audience. This would provide some of the “openness and transparency” Obama has been touting.
Like Panetta she has no “personal ties” to the CIA but unlike Panetta, Oprah did plenty to elect Obama. Some say she actually picked him as the next president. It would be simple gratitude to tap Winfrey. After all it’s not like it’s an important *** or anything and she is thinking about retiring so she is available.
Oprah Winfrey would be a much better choice.
