Obama Uses Navy SEALs as Rescue Team for US Left-Wing Activists in Muslim World, But NOT US Jews in Cuba, Bolivia

By Debbie Schlussel

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: when left wing activists from America go to the Islamic world (or places like North Korea) and they are detained there, we should let them rot. These are not naive innocents. They are primarily left-wing, pan-Muslim sympathists and activists who know exactly where they are going and what they are doing. They assume the risk. Unfortunately, the Obama administration has taken to using the Navy SEALs to rescue these people, and in the latest case, a Navy SEAL was killed.


Obama Sent Navy SEAL to Death to Rescue Pro-Muslim Activists, But Not Jewish Hostages Alan Gross & Jacob Ostreicher in Cuba, Bolivia

Over the weekend, 28-year-old Petty Officer 1st Class Navy SEAL Nicolas D. Checque was killed rescuing a doctor from Morning Star Development who was kidnapped by the Taliban. Two other employees of Morning Star had been kidnapped but released. Morning Star Development is a non-profit, left-wing, pro-Muslim Colorado charity, whose members do medical work and economic development for Afghan Muslims in dangerous areas dominated by the Taliban. Nobody told them to go there. Nobody put a gun to their head. And the kinds of people who do this kind of work are generally far-left, anti-American, anti-Israel whack jobs. There is absolutely no reason a Navy SEAL had to die or that any Navy SEALs were sent to rescue these activists who knew what they were getting into. Frankly, anyone who helps these America-hating Taliban supporters in Afghanistan gets what they deserve when they are kidnapped.

This isn’t the first time this happened, either. As you may recall, last January, President Obama sent the SEALs to rescue more of these far-left, pro-Muslim activists in Somalia. Jessica Buchanan and Poul Hagen Thisted (who isn’t even American) from their Somalian captors. Most other aid groups left Somalia long before that because they knew it wasn’t safe there. You have to be a complete moron to go to Somalia to “help people,” given that we know the place is dominated by Al-Shabab and other warring Islamic terrorist groups. Buchanan and Thisted chose to remain there in their work with the Danish Refugee Council. That was a choice made freely. And we shouldn’t have sent SEALs in to rescue them, just like we shouldn’t have sent in SEALs to rescue Dr. Dilip Joseph, over the weekend.

Meet the American Aholes From Morning Star Development That Navy SEALS Died Rescuing

The Navy SEALs are not the personal police and bodyguards for left-wingers who hate America’s military to begin with and love terrorism-supporting Muslims to infinity. If you go to one of the Islamic-dominated or Communist-run armpits of the world on your own, you deserve what you get, and America shouldn’t rescue you. Every time we rescue these neo-hippy cretins, we encourage more of them to take risks like this, so more American military men will have to risk (and even give) their lives to rescue even more.

Contrast this with two Americans Obama hasn’t sent the SEALs to rescue . . . perhaps because they are both proud Jews. Alan Gross was hired by the U.S. government to help install internet service for Cuba’s persecuted Jewish community. He was sent to Cuba at the behest of Hillary Clinton’s State Department with USAID money paying for this mission. And yet, he rots in a Cuban prison, severely ill, where he’s been for over three years (and has been sentenced to 15 years). In that time, he’s lost 100 pounds, and his mother and daughter back in the U.S. both have cancer. But Cuba won’t let him out. (More on Gross here.) And, instead of getting tough on Cuba and/or sending in the SEALs to rescue Gross, Barack Obama is busy looking for ways to “thaw” the Cold War with Cuba and make travel and trade easier with the Communist Castro Brothers’ totalitarian “paradise.” When Jessica Buchanan, the pro-Muslim activist in Somalia was rescued, Obama cited her alleged breast cancer as a reason. But what about Alan Gross’ illness and that of his family members? Obama couldn’t care less, apparently.

Then, there is Jacob Ostreicher, an Orthodox Jew from Brooklyn, who sits in a Bolivian jail, where he’s suffered for the last 18 months without being charged with a crime. His apparent “crime” is that he was a successful businessman and rice trader who refused Bolivian attempts to extort him and reported that his manager stole from him. Where are the Navy SEALS to rescue him? But in the Obama worldview, the Navy SEALs apparently don’t exist to rescue innocent Americans who engage in business or even are on U.S. government missions. Instead, the NAVY SEALs are Obama’s rescue team for left-wing America-haters working for Muslims who hate us.

Glad he’s got his priorities straight.

Tonight, when I light the Chanukah candles on my menorah, I will keep Alan Gross and Jacob Ostreicher in mind because they, themselves are imprisoned and cannot fulfill the Jewish religious requirement themselves.

And I’ll remember that we are living in dark times for the Jewish people . . . when the Navy SEALs are sent in to rescue self-hating Americans working for Islamic extremists, but not to save Jews who are proud Americans doing America’s work.

GOOD RIDDANCE. And, the list grows. Yes, scrambled to save every American-hating nut whose ass is in a self made sling.

I get physically sick looking at these stupid pigs.

DS_ROCKS! on December 10, 2012 at 6:06 pm

Obama uses the military as fodder. Soon, after he rapes the military’s perks, and he is trying, there will be no incentive for anyone to join the military. To save the country when no one cares? Really, would you?

WilliamMunny on December 10, 2012 at 6:07 pm

Obama is an anti-semite, this should be obvious. Why is Pollard rotting in an American prison for nothing?

On the other hand, these two Jews shouldn’t have gone to anti-semitic countries anyway. I know I wouldn’t step foot in any of those two crapholes. And since Obama has proven that Jewish lives are worthless to him, then perhaps the Israelis should try to get them free. And Pollard too!

FrenchKiss on December 10, 2012 at 6:08 pm

    I am sure there are many former Israeli special forces OPs who would love to take on these rescues. Perhaps someone can help raise the money to fund this.

    JewishPrincess on December 10, 2012 at 7:57 pm

      Sorry, forgot to mention: Their families need to arrange for them to be given Israeli citizenship first.

Debbie, seems American military lives are now at the behest of these cretins who constantly spew hate of our military and blame all the middle east problems on the Israelis. I can not fanthom that the State Department has countless of travel advisroies of going to hellholes and still these cretins still go. Btw-aww isn’t that cute the staff of this a-hole organization are all dress like the natives and smiling and posing for the camera? [sarcasm]
I am just waiting for these fools to go back and, not surprisingly, ask to be bailed again and at the cost of the life (lives) of our military members.
My rules is: you love the muderous thugs who are going to slit your throats over your own country, then your are on you own and don’t be surprise no one hears your pleas for help or mercy.

Mario on December 10, 2012 at 7:54 pm

I was very careful not to re-tweet anything on this Doctor rescued from the Taliban. If I have learned anything here, it’s to know who the players ARE. I had no clue so I didn’t want to do something that may have felt good when I was clueless on the facts.

I’m glad to be reminded of the two blokes who are NOT being rescued. And I am further reminded that Obama-Putin is indeed a creep when it comes to Cuba (and Panama). His crooked administration looks the other way CONSTANTLY when it comes to Cuba and those that aid and abet Iran (and other terrorists) when they are not supposed to. It’s disgusting.

Of course DS is so right to highlight the compare and contrast. It’s disgusting and it’s part of the Obama-Putin slimy snail-trail. These things go together for a reason!

Skunky on December 10, 2012 at 7:59 pm

Oh, and as I try to devote more time to learning about Jihad, I’d like to mention (for the Lib troll lurkers) that Al Shabaab in the Sudan are financing jihad by elephant poaching. Destroying those beautiful animals so they can massacre Black Africans in Darfur. (Animal slaughter and racist Black slaughter all in one.)

Why ANY leftist organization would want to go to Sudan or Somalia to help these Jihadist freaks or feel for any Mooooslims is just totally like all other crap they immerse themselves in…hypocritical and doing the exact opposite of their stated intent.

Skunky on December 10, 2012 at 8:17 pm

You are ignorant. Jessica Buchanan (and others) are not left-wing Muslim sympathizers. In fact, there are people out there who care for the good of humanity – people who don’t fit into left-wing and right-wing categories. These people will put themselves in harms way because having your “boots on the ground” is the only thing that seems to make a difference in our broken world. I bet, if you were to travel to some war-ravaged country (like Somalia) and stare into the eyes of a helpless child – you might realize that all humanity deserves help. People like you sit on your computers and conjure up fantasies about the motives of aid workers and missionaries, while apathetically watching the world burn. Others, however – good hearted men and women – are willing to do anything to make a difference – even if it doesn’t work.

You’re all talk – words don’t make a difference. Action does.

Andy on December 10, 2012 at 10:06 pm

    Andy, you can tell you are ABSOLUTELY a low-information idiot…you said…

    “…I bet, if you were to travel to some war-ravaged country (like Somalia)…”
    NONE of us here would EVER travel to Somalia (or any other Mooooslim hellhole) because we learned HERE that those places are lost causes and inherently dangerous. But please feel free to go yourself!

    Also, know-nothing you also said…

    “… you might realize that all humanity deserves help.” WRONG. Not ALL humanity deserves help. Especially Mooooslims and sociopaths and other bad, evil people.

    ONLY a dumb Liberal would celebrate things done to make a difference EVEN if it doesn’t work and the people come from an evil place.

    Andy, how much do you REALLY know about the Buchanan and others if her ilk? Not much I bet. We know your type.

    (BTW, I realized I did re-tweet a story on the doctor saved from the Taliban but it was tweeted by a person I know who knows his stuff more than the average tweeter and I see it was for me to save the story to read to find out the story…as I had not known much of it. Just wanted to amend my post above. I follow many tweeters so to save a story to read later I sometimes have to retweet it so it doesn’t get lost in the twitter feed. I’m gonna read that link now…)

    Skunky on December 10, 2012 at 10:29 pm

    Sniff. Andy, you brought tears to my eyes.

    Anyway, you dufus, the main point is that other people like our military should not have to be endangered by the risk taking of these bozos.

    skzion on December 11, 2012 at 11:25 am

    Andy, have you asked yourself WHY those children have pain in their eyes? If you truly cared about people around the world who aren’t living as well as us – then look at the so-called poor countries’ economic and social systems. I have a feeling you would be one of the first to decry free-market capitalism and democracy based that are based on Judeo-Christian principles, but whom exactly do you depend on and turn to in requesting help? It is always the U.S. first, isn’t it? We who do it all so wrong. It is you who won’t wake up and see that dictators and warlords hord the billions in aid money that we send each year and purposefully keep their citizenry wanting so that the despot can keep asking for money from the U.S. while nothing ever improves in the “impoverished” country. Open your eyes and do some real critical thinking instead of just responding to your knee-jerk reaction of a suffering child’s eyes and realize that she is suffering because of her country’s lack of leadership and its closed, gov-t controlled economy- not because of a lack of world-wide compassion.

    Dina K on December 11, 2012 at 12:19 pm

    Hey Andy

    I am going to help you out in case you attended govmint school. You need to fuck them before the fuck you.

    This is no different than assisting Germany in WWII as we fight them.


    As goes... on December 11, 2012 at 12:22 pm

@andy, the good doctor stays his ass in safer areas, our elite young men stay out of harms way more often. Gee, that is a HARD concept to deal with when TYPing on your computer trying to call out anyone.

How about the U.S. colleges that routinely put their students in harms way for missions professionals should be doing. It happens all the time.

samurai on December 10, 2012 at 10:25 pm

Skunky, I compare the good doctor to an idiotic mountain climber who climbs up a summit without a gps/personal transponder or cellular phone in their possession. When such a person gets lost, the rescue team risk injury or deah to retrieve what all too often is simply a corpse.

If someone knowingly places themself in harm’s way in such a fool hardy manner, there should be no rescue attempted.

Worry01 on December 10, 2012 at 11:31 pm

Well this brother attended the same high school as me and the seco d hometown hero to die this year. We have lost so many. I’m so sick of it. When ojr leaders have never seved they have no idea the loss of a brother or sister I combat whe they have never have served. I’m so angry its beyond. I just pray now to help me give strength to his family and all who have perish.

Sans the secret service, of course!

Infidel on December 11, 2012 at 2:47 am

They would not hurt him, he is their best friend. He is a fifth columnist- one who happens to be running America into the ground and is all to happy to hand western civilization to the Islamic wolves.

Canadian Steve on December 11, 2012 at 5:48 am

Could it be that he is only rescuing Christians? All those names seem like Christian names….where as the other two are Jews? I could be wrong though as I am not sure of the people who were rescued religious orientation.

George A. on December 11, 2012 at 6:32 am

Look what else Obamullah has helped create in Egypt.
George A I do not believe it is important that these men are christians, they are leftists with brains that have been completely compachicoed by that system of existentialist thought to the point were they have forgotten a lesson many children learn. If you put your hand on the hot stove it gets burnnnedddd..

Canadian Steve on December 11, 2012 at 6:42 am

Fair winds, following seas Nick!
Here’s the thing: Is it me, or does it appear “all of a sudden” we are hearing about “SEAL Team 6” [NAVSPECWARDEVGRU]? OBL hit, CH-47 blown out of the sky (21 6’ers lost at once), movies, shows, “documentaries,” and now this?? These guys have been doing the deed for about 30 years or so. BUDS, STT or SDVT, oral boards, time in service, time on the job, missions performed, and hand picked and interviewed, untold days on a recall leash, relaxed appearance regs et al etc etc. Then, WHAM! front pages for all to see?
Are all the Tier I and II assets so tied-up that DEVGRU is called to “rescue” civilians that KNOW the risk, foregoe risk nitigation and threat assessments, then just “pop-up” on the “need” to save list?? A fricken U.S. Ambassador in Bengazi didn’t even have a Spectre flying an orbit around his locale- but this Doctor gets the “Big Boys” to breech his door, with an operator paying the ultimate price??
Save me the “humanity” Bravo Sierra. 2:1 “Morning Star” made a “few phone calls.” [In the world of finance, it’s called “Insider Trading.”]

Sick_Boy on December 11, 2012 at 7:00 am

Canadian Steve, he may be their best friend, but when they have their demonstrations, they still burn not just US flags, but Obama effigies as well. So don’t bet on his safety if he’s left loose w/ Mohammedan thugs.

Best thing – do one of the highly publicized Quran desecration acts timed to coincide w/ during one of his visits to, say, Pakistan or Saudi Arabia or Egypt. It’ll be fun to watch

Infidel on December 11, 2012 at 7:51 am

    I would do it, and I have friends from the UK, NZ, Aus, USA, and yes little peaceful Canada that would too.
    Freedom of speech does NOT give these filth the right to “not be offended”. My uncle trained fighter pilots to kill the Nazis in wwII and went over there as well. The least I can do is burn a book to offend those who would enslave or kill us all.

    Canadian Steve on December 11, 2012 at 8:33 am


I see the double standard. I am just curious why havent anyone had the intestinal fortitude called him out on the double standard?

Clay Leissner on December 11, 2012 at 8:06 am

Astounding how much evil a president can do, when he is unopposed by “conservatives” in Congress.

Red Ryder on December 11, 2012 at 8:11 am

Debbie: May I point out that your disdain for Romney helped bring us another four years of this clown. Sometimes you have to support a Republican even if you disagree with him, if he’s clearly better than the liberal Dem weenie. This is a lesson conservatives had better learn before the coronation of Hillary in 2016.

F: My disdain isn’t why Romney lost. He lost b/c he was a crappy candidate who ran a crappy campaign, and I’m not so sure Romney wouldn’t have done the same with the SEALs. On foreign policy, Romney was to the left of Obama. My disdain for him was deserved. You didn’t demand better from Romney, which is why we are stuck with Obama. Thank YOU for bringing us another four years of this clown. This is a lesson you and other conservatives who supported liberal Romney had better learn or we will have eight years of Hillary. And we will have that b/c you haven’t learned. Blame the image in your mirror. That’s whose fault it is. DS

Fleiter on December 11, 2012 at 10:10 am

    Fleiter (nice handle!), what the hell are you talking about?

    Romney was NOT a Conservative. He was a LIBERAL. He didn’t fight back (and anyone with a brain could see doing the John McShame for the GOP would be NOWHERESville) and didn’t put a gloved pinky on the crap record of Obama-Putin.

    And the party that really brought him down were the canny & duplicitous Donks. Romney was Liberal but they successfully painted him (for the stupid) as the world’s most evil Right-Wing Republican.

    Facts matter, Fleiter!

    Skunky on December 11, 2012 at 10:30 am

      What are your thoughts on Marco Rubio?

      Canadian Steve on December 11, 2012 at 10:41 am

        He’s attempting to remodel/refurbish/distance his image from the stink over his probable embezzeling of Florida State GOP money [credit cards]; used funds for personal expenses etc. Funny how others in Florida with the same issue(s) managed to “escape” further scrutiny. Finito Rubio.

        Sick_Boy on December 11, 2012 at 4:43 pm

    Hey Fleiter, what piffle. If you were here before the election you would know this.

    The main reason Mittens lost was because he gave no plausible reason for white men and married women to vote for him, and enough of them just stayed home. He did only one smart thing in the general election: he chose Ryan, to give the symbolic presence of a fiscal conservative on the ticket.

    He actually could have won were it not for Sandy. But a smart politician does not require all the stars to align.

    But what if Mittens had won? He would only have set us up for a pounding in four years. White married folk are the natural core constituency for Republicans. A Republican candidate who doesn’t get this will lose.

    skzion on December 11, 2012 at 11:20 am

    I know what you are saying, being the mother of a Libertarian son and having to explain the same thing to him – but Debbie was acutely aware of Romney being a superior choice – although being far from perfect, and in the end, she did endorse him for the very reason you cited.

    Dina K on December 11, 2012 at 12:36 pm

Thank you, Debbie for pointing the finger of truth. Really truly thank you.

Jack on December 11, 2012 at 10:42 am

nothing this commie traitor does surprises me.

bruce on December 11, 2012 at 10:46 am

I used to think Marco Rubio was pretty good, but he seems to have left the fold lately. Besides, he is not eligible to be POTUS either, for the same reason that Obama is not eligible–in Rubio’s case, both his parents were not US citizens when he was born.

JI: Your parents don’t have to be U.S. citizens when you are born to be eligible to run for (and serve in) the Presidency. Rubio was born in the U.S. He has birthright citizenship and that’s enough to be eligible to run for Prez. DS

John Illiois on December 11, 2012 at 11:18 am

He got rescued because he’s a spook. He works for a colorado springs ngo that’s a front.

dances on pedals on December 11, 2012 at 12:16 pm

    Nice read. The whole DEVGRU thing, a “civilian aid working Doctor,” nearly instantaneous react/hit…didn’t add up. Coupled with DS’ points et al etc. …and the Ambassador being hung-out to dry in Bengazi- without react/rescue; dead men tell no tales.

    Sick_Boy on December 11, 2012 at 4:53 pm

Wasn’t that birthright citizenship a product of the Civil War to ensure ex-slaves had their birthright? It should have been written better.

R: Yes, and yes it should have been written better and specifically exclusive to the slaves and their children as it was intended. However, the government and the courts have unfortunately recognized it as a universal right. Thus, all the anchor babies (including hypocrite Michelle Fraudkin, whose parents had her here while they were here on student visas). DS

Rochelle on December 12, 2012 at 2:54 am

Hello Debbie, I have to take exception to Marco Rubio being eligible for the POTUS position. (Rochelle, please note as well since it has something to do with what you wrote, but what about Free Blacks living up North who were citizens!?).

Please note:

Now, is everyone sufficiently confused? Here is my question: If Vladimir Putin, Ahkmadinejad, Chavez, and Kim Jung Un each came to The U.S. with pregnant wives and stayed until the babies were delivered, would these children be NATURAL BORN CITIZENS eligible for the elected position of POTUS???

I do not think the Founders were so ignorant as to allow “Loyal to the Crown” individuals to become POTUS so easily.

I side with Vattel’s Definition and logic.

Dennis on December 12, 2012 at 8:18 am

Top notch, Debbie, so much so, I decided not to write my own column on this subject. But I will write one on the Chrysler nonsense.
