Maj. Gen. (Ret.) Paul E. Vallely stated recently during a radio interview that President Obama should be “arrested for treasonous activities.”
Vallely, while a guest on the Real Side radio program earlier this month, stated above anything else that Obama should be held accountable for his sympathies for the Muslim Brotherhood in particular and his actions regarding the Benghazi tragedy. The retired general said one group that should hold the president’s feet to the fire are high-ranking members of the military.
The program’s host, Joe Messina, asked whether Obama would just replace those military leaders with others who agree with him, as he has done several times in the past.
Vallely responded: “Well then we arrest him for treasonous activities.” He noted that the group he helps lead, the Citizens Commission on Benghazi, counts at least fourteen different actions the president has taken that could be considered treasonous.
The general listed bringing the Muslim Brotherhood into the White House, supporting the Muslim Brotherhood against President el-Sisi in Egypt, supporting the Muslim Brotherhood in Libya, and supporting the Muslim Brotherhood’s operations in Syria among the acts amounting to treason.
Vallely believes Obama has taken these actions because he has an agenda. “We know he’s a radical Islamic sympathizer. He sympathizes with the Muslim Brotherhood,” he said.
He noted the Middle East is in disarray because of the policies of the administration. “Baghdad is under complete threat.” Further, Vallely pointed out that Major General Qasem Soleimani, from the Iranian Revolutionary Guard, is “going to fly in, from what we hear, 8-15 thousand Iranian troops in to bolster Assad in Damascus and save that regime.” Newsweek reported on this move by Iran earlier this month.
Vallely also took Obama to task for stating a few weeks ago that he is waiting on the Pentagon to give him strategic plans to defeat ISIS. Obama’s remarks prompted a military official to respond: “What the f— was that? We have given him lots of options, he just hasn’t acted on them,” as reported by Fox News.
Vallely was not surprised at this response. The DOD is always working on multiple operational plans to address threats to the United States, he said. The problem is Obama “has no heart. He is a loser. I think he’s a coward, and he does not want to engage.”
Vallely believes it is up to Congress to “shut down” the president on multiple fronts using the power of the purse, among other tools.
“I’m tired of the deceit, the lies, the deception of this administration,” Vallely told Real Side.
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) released a report last year listing the Benghazi cover-up and continued aid to Egypt following a military coup among the 76 “lawless acts” for which the Obama administration needed to be held accountable. (The coup took out Muslim Brotherhood-backed Mohammed Morsi, but Cruz highlighted that the aid continued without congressional authorization and contrary to federal law.)
