Obama Discards Joint Chiefs in the Wake of Putin Double-Cross

WASHINGTON, D.C. – FULL-CONTACT sources reported today that President Obama walked out of a meeting with the Joint Chiefs of Staff on Sunday, declaring that he no longer believed the information and intelligence being provided by that body.

In recent days, it has been reported that Obama skipped meetings with his national security team over the current situation in Ukraine and discuss potential policy options. Over the weekend, Russia carried out a military incursion into the Crimean peninsula, a strategic access to Russia for a number of reasons. This region has been disputed and fought over for the last two centuries; the situation has been steadily escalating amid saber-rattling on both the US and Russian sides.

The dissolution of cohesive intelligence within the White House coupled with Obama’s international embarrassment over what many call weak or imprudent foreign policy initiatives – particularly where Vladimir Putin’s Russia are concerned – are only the tip of the iceberg. While the President has made clear his intentions that the US ought not be the sole superpower in the world, according to our sources, his machinations in the Black Sea region involved Putin’s assurances that Muslim populations would be left alone. However, with several terrorist bombings in recent months within Russia carried out by jihadists residing in these areas, as well as Obama’s continued support for the Muslim Brotherhood worldwide, it appears that Putin may have double-crossed the president.

The question given Obama’s refusing the counsel of the Joint Chiefs is that of who is essentially running the country. Who does Obama trust if not them, and where will he obtain vital intelligence? There remains his Iranian-born senior adviser Valerie Jarrett, as well as CIA Director John Brennan (who is reported to be a closeted Muslim), and other minor advisers. Many have expressed over the inordinate influence Jarrett has exercised in her post in the administration, most recently her clandestine involvement in secret negotiations with Iran prior to public talks addressing their nuclear development program. Given the tense situations in the Ukraine and the Middle East, the anticipation of a heavily Muslim-influenced foreign policy is likely to engender concern on the part of American conservatives and more nationalistic domestic influences.
