Do you understand yet?
When your country's military and intelligence assets are deployed in support of Islam in three different nations at one time, you might want to think through some of your preconceptions.
Here's the sitrep:
1) Domestic enemies control all levers of state power and have complete carte blanche within CONUS.
2) Internationally, those same domestic enemies are using state power to support Islamic regimes with whom it is mistakenly believed "we can do business".
3) Those Islamic regimes - whether old school (e.g., House of Saud) or new school (e.g., the "Libyan rebels") are antithetical to Western values and the medium/long-term interests of the American people.
4) The economic leverage of those regimes is being increased by the .gov restrictions on domestic energy production (e.g., oil, gas) and generation (nuclear), thereby giving those foreign enemies increased power over the lives of everyday Americans as the trend towards more malignant Islam accelerates globally.
