Richard Danzig, former Clinton Navy Secretary and current Barack Obama foreign affairs advisor, had the following to say at a recent conference on terrorism:
“Winnie the Pooh seems to me to be a fundamental text on national security.”
Danzig, who is sure be to be considered as National Security Advisor should Obama win, went on to insinuate that the “willy nilly silly ole bear” has a philosophy suggesting that if a policy hurts, we should stop and rethink it. In other words, “cut and run” if it doesn’t go perfectly.
Danzig also suggested a parallel between Al Qaeda and a terrorist Japanese organization that released nerve gas on Tokyo subways. Never mind that the Japanese terrorists were secular and Islamic terrorists rely on religious dogma…Danzig would treat them all the same.
Danzig wasn’t done. He goes on to compare terrorists to Luke Skywalker ("super heros") and then to violent football fans. In referring to the latter he quotes an author he like saying, “violence lets the adrenaline flow; it’s like sex, you live in the moment.” What’s next? Handing out condoms to Hamas?
The Source thinks the comparisons shouldn’t stop there. We think that Danzig, and anyone who listens to his advice, are definitely “all stuffed with fluff.”
