U.S. Defense Secretary: America should surrender its sovereignty to NATO, U.N.

At a recent congressional hearing on the situation in Syria, General Martin Dempsey, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said the decision to send U.S. troops to Syria would ultimately need to be approved by NATO and the U.N. Security council. Expressing rightful, jaw-dropping shock, U.S. Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL), turned to our Secretary of Defense, Leon Panetta, for clarification. Surely, he didn't hear General Dempsey correctly, did he? Unfortunately he did. Panetta concurred with Dempsey, adding that any nation-building coalition the U.S. wants to partake in requires permission from an international assembly. "If it comes to an operation where we're trying to build a coalition of nations," Panetta said, " we did in Lybia or Bosnia, or for that matter, Afghanistan, we want to do it with permissions either of NATO, or by the international community." 

Wasn't it the Taliban who took control of Afghanistan and provided a hide-out for Osama bin Laden, who sent planes into our buildings on American soil, killing thousands of American citizens? So by the Obama-appointed Panetta's reasoning, we should have sought permission from NATO and the United Nations to send troops to Afghanistan because he saw it merely as a nation-building effort?

When you appoint people - as Obama has - who clearly have no sense of what constitutes defense and national security - who can't even see the difference between Bosnia and Afghanistan! -- it is no surprise our country's sovereignty is thrown out the window.

Americans need to pay close attention to what is happening. This isn't about politics. This isn't about Democrats vs. Republicans. This is about the very future of our country, our Constitution, our federal republic. This is about a president and his hand-picked helpers who are becoming increasingly bold in ignoring the Constitution and forfeiting America's sovereignty in the process. We all need to open our eyes and look at the real ramifications that come with the approaches being taken by this Administration.

    I watched the video, but I didn't need to watch it to know Obama and all his cronies, czars,etc. don't care one bit about America, except how they can destroy it. The video definitely makes it even more clear though. I hope people will start to see this is not a popularity contest and see Obama as the wolf in sheeps clothing that he is. For the first time in 50 + years, I am scared for our country.

  2. I just finished reading your article in the Source newspaper"Outrage over comments is typical left hypocrisy". How refreshing to read an intelligent discourse rather than the usual diatribe that spews from the "unholy church of the mainstream media"! We have been made anonymous by the left who are threatening to extinction the freedoms provided by our beloved Bill of Rights. For this reason, we are compelled to establish a campaign created for the people and by the people to preserve the sacred heritage endowed to "WE THE PEOPLE"! Please visit us on facebook at 2012 First Freedom Campaign. Please like us if you agree, please leave a comment, please pass it on, and especially please join us in our grassroots campaign to protect, preserve and restore OUR Bill of Rights. It is truly time for Americans to wake up and smell the socialism!

  3. To Anonymous in the comment above. Just read your comment - I couldn't find 2012 First Freedom Campaign on Facebook - or Google either. Do you have an actual link to it?
