Leon Panetta Threatens the Family of Assad

by Scott Creighton

Leon Panetta must be removed from office. Yesterday on CNN he publicly threatened the family of President Assad of Syria.

If you want to be able to protect yourself and your family, you’d better get the hell out now.” Leon Panetta on CNN “security” Blog

Threatening the lives of national leaders is almost commonplace with American politicians,but threatening the lives of their families is beyond reprehensible… it’s thuggish and cowardly and makes this country look like nothing more than vile gangsters leading cowardly sheep.

These photos of the Assad family came out a little while ago. I don’t know how old the pictures are but these are the people that our Secretary of Defense and former head of the CIA just publicly threatened to murder…

  1. thank you

  2. […] get the hell out now.”Den mannen borde naturligtvis arresteras omedelbart för de uttalandena! Leon Panetta Threatens the Family of Assad Threatening the lives of national leaders is almost commonplace with American politicians,but […]

  3. Thanks for another enjoyable post. Never tired of hearing the leading counter-culture commentators such as yourself, Media Roots, and the Steve Lendman show. As we know – the usual liberals Amy Goodman, Thom Hartman are all protecting the Obama on war crimes via Libya, Syria, Yemen, Bahrain, etc., therefore truth is subverted on behalf on the Dem Party never thought we’d see the day Amy censorsing or NATO pro-war narrative for the 2012 election year. Peter B. Collins had some good shows on the Arab Spring wars w/ Sibel Edmonds available in the archives if you are interested in following Libya, Syria war crimes no one appears to care about even antiwar icon Mike Malloy skipped over it. Anyone wish the early days of Air America were back with Garofalo screaming about blood thirsty NeoCons?

    I guess when the NeoCons took over Democrat foreign policy everyone decided to keep quiet. Syria NATO intervention post Nov.
    will be as a big a disaster as Iraq, probably worse. Its coming.

  4. Look at Asma Assad driving a four-wheel buggy. If NATO’s Al Qaeda scum take over, do you think for a moment women will have that kind of freedom in Syria?

  5. To me, Leon and Hillary have a look about them looks the same. I’ve wondered if they might both be heavy boozers, but maybe it’s just the work they do makes them look alike.

  6. Damage control is in full swing at Newsweek/The Daily Beast right now. Joan Juliet Buck, the author of “Asma al-Assad: A Rose in the Desert,” (Vogue, February 2011) writes a full retraction, claiming she had been duped by the First Lady of Syria. Apparently, Asma al-Assad isn’t “the freshest and most magnetic of first ladies” as originally depicted; but is now “The First Lady of Hell” who “doesn’t want to meet a Jew.”
