The Crucial Importance of Inspector Generals in the Obama Administration but They Are Being Eviscerated!
A recent article in the NYTimes, “Tighter Lid on Records Threatens to Weaken Government Watchdogs”, by Eric Lichtblau [Nov.27, 2015] examines the serious problem of how the Obama Administration which espouses “transparency” has made certain that the inspector generals in every federal agency have no real power. In every federal bureaucracy there is a division of inspector generals who have been assigned the specific duty of monitoring the activities of that particular agency to ensure that they are complying within the law; as well as that the stipulated functions are being implemented according to the prescribed mandates.
It turns out that Eric Lichtblau, the journalist, has uncovered a pattern of miscreant behavior beginning with the Drug Enforcement Agency [DEA] leading to the august Department of Justice [DOJ] and the FBI; where powers of the inspector general have been seriously curtailed by the Obama Administration. Obama created an artificial expectation where “Transparency” would be the keystone of his two administrations when in reality, he made certain that the access by journalists and inspector generals have been seriously curtailed. No explanations or rationalizations are even offered. So necessary information required to make an independent assessment by an outside party has been at best restricted; and at worse, refused.
Obama and his political minions have started on a course of information censorship which has become the vouchsafe of his tenure as POTUS. No one within the administration or outside the closely knit WH clique really has full access to any narrative which may contain the truth or any semblance to reality. Obama has effectively implemented an administration where fiction and distortion of the truth become the paramount achievements of his tenure.
Witness the recent book, No One Died At Sandy Hook by James Fetzer, a highly dedicated investigator who found himself banned from releasing the book at Amazon.com for some absurd, nonsensical, arbitrary reason. The book categorically states what I and a multitude of other ‘truthers’ have said from the beginning: what Connecticut Officials/State Police stated about countless children dying in a shoot-out by Adam Lanza, an Asperger’s shooting maven, was completely false. I and a multitude of others investigators went so far as to implicate Obama and his judicial field hand –Eric Holder –for disseminating lies and creating a ‘stand down’ which at it’s core was criminal and self-indicting. The FBI 2012 reports corroborated our conclusions; as did the inspector generals’ reports in DOJ. Yet Obama continued on his escapade of lies right up to the Osama bin Laden raid and the creation of the CIA manufactured terrorism of al Qaeda and ISIS.
Now Americans have been deprived of any legitimate means of monitoring a mendacious, incompetent POTUS, who believes that he belongs to the pantheon of the untouchables, surrounded by the wily, corrupt Secret Service whose loyalty always remains circumspect and questionable [in light of prostitution and drug charges].
It’s time to insist that our legislative representatives demand further transparency through real oversight or we, blinded citizens will stumble through the dark ages of lies and invest ourselves with the resolves to protect those of us who are threatened by the Administration by any means possible.
Truth and integrity have fallen by the wayside of mendacity and Machiavellian guile. Even our feminized military leadership has failed to protect us both internally or externally— incompetency, lassitude, and greed reeks through their senior ranks.
Americans can and must fight for our constitutional right to know what the servants of the state, POTUS and others, are doing with our taxpayer dollars [creating unnecessary wars while trying to mandate gun control]. We cannot wait one more year to tolerate the absurdities of a man whose credibility and integrity is completely shattered by falsified records, false flags, stand downs; as well as, the elimination of our guardians of bureaucratic oversight [the inspector general’s]
There is an old Malayan proverb that goes something like this:
“Don’t think there are no crocodiles because the water is calm.”
