Obama's betrayals and mysterious Libya agenda ~ By Erik Rush

When Obama arrived in the Windy City, Farrakhan had already forged deep ties with Gadhafi. It's no secret that Wright, and to a lesser extent Farrakhan, became Obama's mentors, but it can't help but give pause that Gadhafi, in his terse admonitions to the president and elsewhere, habitually refers to him as "my son."

Precisely what, if any, relationship might Obama have had with the Libyan leader?

In the viral video of that radio interview, Farrakhan's comments appear to contain cryptic, veiled threats of some sort. Does this speak to an even greater betrayal than the casual observer might surmise? Does the president have some unknown motivation for wanting Gadhafi gone?

Erik Rush is definitely on to something here. The questions still remain: What is really going on? Is it about Libya's oil? What did it take for Obama to throw Louis Farrakhan, Rev. Jeremiah Wright, and Muammar Gaddafi (or as Erik spells it, Moammar Gadhafi) under the bus?

Last weekend, nearly the entire so-called civilized world mobilized against Libyan overlord Moammar Gadhafi with more alacrity than most living Americans can recall ever having seen. The ostensible rationale for doing so was to protect the Libyan people from Gadhafi, who had promised no mercy in his fight to quell a popular uprising against his capricious and ruthless regime. Under the weakest scrutiny, this humanitarian raison d'ĂȘtre wears thinner than Kate Moss, given the abundance of atrocities currently taking place in such nations as the Congo and Sudan, to name but two.

In light of the duress under which Americans (and in all fairness, Obama himself) have struggled – the economy, rising fuel costs, national security and labor tensions – the imprudence of this engagement has even experts baffled. Some have put the president's actions, inaction and absence on the continent during this period down to incompetence or indecisive tendencies. Conservative pundits continue to counsel Obama to step up and "be a leader." While his leadership qualities have always been in question (since he'd never led anything in his life prior to becoming president), and there are no doubt elements of ineptitude and vacillation in his modus operandi, my inclination is to remind those who are frustrated or mystified that Obama has always had his own unique and inscrutable agenda, even if he has no doctrine nor policy to speak of.

As many of his supporters and allies have discovered, this agenda isn't necessarily in keeping with their interests. Even during the health-care debate in 2010, certain Democrat leaders felt slighted at their being shut out of certain processes. After the Republican wins in November, Obama's brand of damage control infuriated them. The president's determination to go his own way has dismayed benefactor George Soros, who contributed billions in dollars and minions' man-hours to Obama's campaign. Progressive elites the nation over (Hollywood celebrities in particular) have expressed dissatisfaction with his performance.

Last week, Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan blasted the president for demanding that Gadhafi step down, for failing to display solidarity with Africans and for being an establishment sellout in general. Farrakhan, as well as Obama's former pastor, Jeremiah Wright, were unceremoniously discarded by Obama during his ascendancy, despite their having been key figures in that ascendancy. When Obama first hit Chicago in 1985 (prior to entering Harvard Law School), he was a young community organizer and wannabe power player. During his three years there, he forged some of the connections that would slingshot him through the political ranks in coming years – and the two clergymen were among them. So it isn't too difficult to determine why there's bad blood there. How bad is it?

I think the pertinent question is: How deep does it run?
