Some of our leaders know the truth, but cannot speak the truth until they are out of uniform …
“You know, we all say we have to identify the threat. Well, I think the one who identified it the best was [President Recep Tayyip] Erdogan from Turkey when he said, ‘Islam is Islam. There are no modifiers [e.g., Islamic extremism]. Democracy is the train we ride to our ultimate objective.’”
“He couldn’t have said it any plainer,” said Lyons. “And until you recognize that Islam is a political movement masquerading as a religion, you’re never going to come to grips with it. And as far as a strategy – let me just conclude one thing, as I just had in my latest op-ed -- the Obama Administration has a strategy.”
“It’s very simple, any thinking American should be able to grasp,” said the admiral. “It’s anti-American, anti-Western, it’s pro-Islamic, it’s pro-Iranian, and pro-Muslim Brotherhood!”

Bottom line …
Can we let any Iranian Nuclear Agreement negotiated by John Kerry, following the dictates of President Obama, stand? Especially one that puts America, Americans, and our allies at significant future risk?
The progressive socialist democrats cannot be trusted with our national defense and have proven that when in power (Carter, Clinton, Obama) they weaken our country as if they were a fifth column, designed to destroy America from within on behalf of our enemies, foreign and domestic.
We are so screwed.
