The Obama Family Trip to Africa to Cost $60 to $100 Million

2:12 PM, Jun 13, 2013 • By DANIEL HALPER


King Barack, Queen Moochelle, and the Royal Princesses will be going to Africa later this month. But the trip won't be cheap; it's expected to cost American taxpayers $60 to $100 million, according to the Washington Post.

"When President Obama makes his first extended trip to sub-Saharan Africa later this month, the federal agencies charged with keeping him safe won’t be taking any chances. Hundreds of U.S. Secret Service agents will be dispatched to secure facilities in Senegal, South Africa and Tanzania. A Navy aircraft carrier or amphibious ship, with a fully staffed medical trauma center, will be stationed offshore in case of emergency," reports the Post.

"Military cargo planes will airlift in 56 support vehicles, including 14 limousines and three trucks loaded with sheets of bullet-proof glass to cover the windows of the hotels where the first family will stay. Fighter jets will fly in shifts giving 24-hour coverage over the president’s airspace so they can intervene quickly if an errant plane gets too close.

"The extraordinary security provisions — which will cost the government tens of millions of dollars — are outlined in a confidential internal planning document obtained by The Washington Post. While the preparations appear to be in line with similar travels in the past, the document offers an unusual glimpse into the colossal efforts to protect the U.S. commander-in-chief on trips abroad."

After the paper questioned the costs of a planned family safari, the White House nixed the plan. "The president and first lady had also planned to take a Tanzanian safari as part of the trip, which would have required the president’s special counter-assault team to carry sniper rifles with high-caliber rounds that could neutralize cheetahs, lions or other animals if they became a threat, according to the planning document. But the White House canceled the safari on Wednesday following inquiries from The Washington Post about the trip’s purpose and expense, according to a person familiar with the decision."

The paper adds, "Obama’s trip could cost the federal government $60 million to $100 million based on the costs of similar African trips in recent years, according to one person familiar with the journey who was not authorized to speak for attribution. The Secret Service planning document, which was provided to The Post by a person who is concerned about the amount of resources necessary for the trip, does not specify costs."

There is a difference between releasing national security information and exposing the existence of a program to spy on American citizens.
If Snowden released national security information (beyond the existence of the program), then he may be as guilty as Manning.
I have noticed that there are no references to the content, just accusations that national security information was released. I'm inclined to think that if there was actually harmful information released, and it's already public information, the accusers would be referencing it.
As it stands now, I think there is an intent to change the focus from the government spying on Americans to the person. This is typical for the guilty.

LISTEN TO OBAMAS CAMPAIGN TAPES FROM 2005 up this GOI is A BALDFACE LIAR President Obama’s defense of the very surveillance policies he campaigned against in 2008 “fails the laugh test on a number of levels”– including the legal presumption of innocence.“Where is the basis of ‘probable cause’ to proactively search the records of millions of Americans who have never engaged in any illegal activity let alone activity of a ‘terrorist’ nature?”“They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.” Benjamin Franklin
“The larger issue is that the NSA and FBI are engaged in the surveillance of American citizens who have not engaged in any wrongdoing
But O'bama excluded the Moslems: The White House assures that tracking our every phone call and keystroke is to stop terrorists, and yet it won’t snoop in mosques, where the terrorists are.

That’s right, the government’s sweeping surveillance of our most private communications excludes the jihad factories where homegrown terrorists are radicalized.

Since October 2011, mosques have been off-limits to FBI agents. No more surveillance or undercover string operations without high-level approval from a special oversight body at the Justice Department dubbed the Sensitive Operations Review Committee.

Who makes up this body, and how do they decide requests? Nobody knows; the names of the chairman, members and staff are kept secret.

We do know the panel was set up under pressure from Islamist groups who complained about FBI stings at mosques. Just months before the panel’s formation, the Council on American-Islamic Relations teamed up with the ACLU to sue the FBI for allegedly violating the civil rights of Muslims in Los Angeles by hiring an undercover agent to infiltrate and monitor mosques there.

Before mosques were excluded from the otherwise wide domestic spy net the administration has cast, the FBI launched dozens of successful sting operations against homegrown jihadists — inside mosques — and disrupted dozens of plots against the homeland.

Some of those in VVAW were legitimate veterans, abused by a phony piece-o-shit named John Kerry.
You are correct. There were some that were legitimate. However, the vast majority were frauds. The entire executive committee were frauds pretending to be Vietnam veterans and had never served in Vietnam. There was a big fight in Saint Louis when John Kerry tried to take over the VVAW. Because they were mostly frauds, and Kerry had actually been in Vietnam, he was rejected. It was after that event Kerry left the VVAW.
Every "witness" in the "Winter Soldier" fiasco was a fraud and had never been to Vietnam.

You are correct, though. There are many interesting stories told by the real Vietnam veterans in the VVAW.

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.
Yup. We'll most likely have to fight another war over the principles written in the Constitution.
What do you think? Do you think the Democrats are willing to fight a war to eliminate the Constitution?
Or, do you think they plan to fight a war to stay in the White House so a follow-on administration can't discover all the treason going on there now?
I'm thinking, considering there are Wahhabists in the White House while Wahhabism is at war with the United States, it is likely there are hanging offenses happening.
Son, you keep repeating the same thing.

And we already KNOW the government suspended those rights once.

It's historical fact.
