The very fact that a man like the former Attorney General Michael Mukasey, a great thinker and a man of integrity was not invited to CPAC is clear indication that CPAC has gone downhill and cannot be any longer considered to be speaking for even 50% of those who consider themselves Republican or voters of the Republican party. I don't think even a single speaker at CPAC 2013 spoke about the looming threat of Islam and Shariah ... that should tell you the extent of the dhimmihood that has taken over CPAC. Disgusting !!
The former AG writing at WashingtonJournal about a year ago:
The first anniversary of the SEAL Team 6 operation that killed Osama bin Laden brings the news that President Obama plans during the coming campaign to exploit the bragging rights to the achievement. That plan invites scrutiny that is unlikely to benefit him.
Consider the events surrounding the operation. A recently disclosed memorandum from then-CIA Director Leon Panetta shows that the president's celebrated derring-do in authorizing the operation included a responsibility-escape clause: "The timing, operational decision making and control are in Admiral McRaven's hands. The approval is provided on the risk profile presented to the President. Any additional risks are to be brought back to the President for his consideration. The direction is to go in and get bin Laden and if he is not there, to get out."
Which is to say, if the mission went wrong, the fault would be Adm. McRaven's, not the president's. Moreover, the president does not seem to have addressed at all the possibility of seizing material with intelligence value—which may explain his disclosure immediately following the event not only that bin Laden was killed, but also that a valuable trove of intelligence had been seized, including even the location of al Qaeda safe-houses. That disclosure infuriated the intelligence community because it squandered the opportunity to exploit the intelligence that was the subject of the boast...........
