Mattis withdraws Obama stooge and terror supporter Anne Patterson as choice for undersecretary of policy

29

Western Journalism has this: “The level of antipathy to Patterson was illustrated in an article appearing on the website of anti-jihad activist Pamela Geller. ‘Is Mattis nuts? As ambassador to Egypt, Patterson was instrumental in Obama’s backing of the Muslim Brotherhood Morsi regime in Egypt. And the Egyptians knew it,’ she wrote.”

That is true:

Could you imagine if Patterson were a Republican and this was how the Egyptians felt about her? The media would have been plastering this all over the place. But in this case, you never heard boo.

It is good that she is gone, but disquieting that he chose her in the first place.

“Defense Secretary Mattis withdraws Patterson as choice for undersecretary for policy,” by Karen DeYoung, Washington Post, March 14, 2017 (thanks to Todd):

Defense Secretary Jim Mattis has withdrawn retired senior diplomat Anne W. Patterson as his choice for undersecretary for policy after the White House indicated unwillingness to fight what it said would be a battle for Senate confirmation.

U.S. officials said that two members of the Senate Armed Services Committee, Sens. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) and Ted Cruz (R-Tex.), were strongly opposed to Patterson’s nomination because she served as U.S. ambassador to Egypt from 2011 to 2013, a time when the Obama administration supported an elected government with ties to the Muslim Brotherhood that was ultimately overthrown by the Egyptian military.

The withdrawal leaves Mattis with a bench still empty of Trump-appointed senior officials, a situation that stretches across the administration as Cabinet secretaries have not chosen or the White House has not approved nominees. Although Obama administration holdovers remain in a few jobs, after eight weeks in office, President Trump has not nominated a single high official under Cabinet rank in the Defense or State departments….

The White House plans this week — perhaps as early as Tuesday — to announce a handful of approved nominees proposed by Mattis for senior Defense Department positions, but Patterson will not be among them, according to officials who spoke on the condition of anonymity about internal decision-making.

Mattis’s acquiescence to Patterson’s withdrawal came after he fought and won a major battle with the White House to remove Iraq from the list of majority-Muslim countries whose citizens are barred from U.S. entry under Trump’s executive order on immigration.

Although he reportedly insisted that he be able to select his own team when he accepted Trump’s offer to head the Defense Department, Mattis has skirmished repeatedly with the White House over appointments. His initial choice for deputy secretary, Michèle Flournoy, withdrew from consideration after meetings with White House officials. Flournoy served as the department’s undersecretary in the Obama administration….

Patterson retired from the State Department in December as assistant secretary for Near East affairs, the top official on the Middle East, with the highest rank, career ambassador. She also served as ambassador to Pakistan, Colombia and El Salvador.

But it was primarily her service in Egypt, as the public face of Obama’s support for the Muslim Brotherhood-backed government of then-President Mohamed Morsi, that led to her rejection by the White House, officials said….

Although Patterson was said to be supported by Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman John McCain (R-Ariz.) and was seen as likely to have garnered a majority of votes from Republicans and Democrats, the Trump administration has voiced strong support for Sissi as a strong counterterrorism ally and largely dismissed criticism of his repression of human and civil rights.

While the administration has denounced the Muslim Brotherhood, its plans to issue an executive order designating it a terrorist organization appear to have fallen at least temporarily by the wayside as a number of Middle East experts and U.S. allies in the region have warned against such a step….

    What part of “No muslims and obama leftovers” do Republicans not understand?

    • Suresh

      “No muslim” is easy to talk here, but not easy to implement. Trump is trying to at least keep out the bad guys out from known jihadi trouble spots.

      • Mahou Shoujo

        Easiest way to keep bad guys out, is not to let them in.

          you know how it has worked out ! Iraq has been removed from list !

          • Mahou Shoujo

            There is going to have to be some fine tuning done.

          • Rob Porter

            Because of U.S. involvement in Iraq, I think that was regarded as necessary expediency, but there are going to be consequences for this decision. They are Muslims and they still hate us infidels.

    • Michael Garfinkel

      Maybe “Mad Dog Mattis” isn’t so bright after all.

      • Mahou Shoujo

        No evidence to indicate that seen recently.

    • Rob Porter

      Thank God for this small victory, but what the devil is wrong with Mattis’s judgment?

      • Mahou Shoujo

        Every one makes the occasional mistake, this was a big one. It is noticed.

    Of course she was supported by that traitor, McCain.

      Naturally. That’s why the fakers at MSNBC and CNN LOVE that crusty old left-center, I-want-a-war, MexCain.

  • Suresh

    Just shows how out of touch Gen Mattis is with reality. He is also not pro Israel because Arab “allies” are anti Israel !

    Its good time to stop fighting for, propping up jihadi , anti-Israel regimes like saudi, OIC . And are they paying for men and material from USA being used in fight against Al-qaeda in yemen ?

    Obama. Hillary , most Dems , RINO’s have been working against American interests for a long time . And are nothing more than paid puppets of lobbyists for saudi/OIC and Iran too http://tinyurl.com/njzxzed

    Time to focus on fighting enemy within USA.

  • gfmucci

    It would be interesting to know what or who changed Mattis’s mind about that Islamic tool. Was it Trump? Was it public blow back? Did he see the light on his own? I have NO confidence in his judgement.

    • IzlamIsTyranny

      Ditto — especially considering his blame Israel meme. Fire him.

  • NotTheMama

    Perhaps Mattis should consult with the WH for his selections. His own vetting process looks to be inadequate.

  • Fern

    Mattis must have taken his Geritol and wike up. Damn, that was scary.

  • Debbie

    I nominate Robert Spencer for the job, and Pamela Geller for ambassador to the UK.

  • Tm.

    Let us hope General Mattis will understand what is needed. Personally, I think the withdrawal of this latest choice was wise. This administration needs to clean house and quickly. No holdovers.

  • caliroxanne

    Why is it taking so long to drain the swamp? From day one, anyone with ties to Obama should’ve been removed immediately!

  • casey377

    When John McCain supports a candidate, it’s probable that Soros wants that person.
    It should be an automatic rejection.

    • santashandler

      John McCain must have been beaten one too many times on the head with a bamboo stick in Hanoi, or wherever the f**k he was. For, he is certainly not acting in the best interests of this country. He should have been investigated the moment he came back from his “ordeal.” He probably returned a Manchurion candidate.

    Drain the swamp clean.

  • Henry

    Just having McCain, the rino, support her, is enough reason to dump her.

  • durabo

    Why did the general even CONSIDER this Bolshevik Fifth-Columnist for the post, anyway? ALL apparatchiki from the Buttcrack Hussein O’Bunghole regime must be purged! This includes FBI Director Comey.

  • Pastor C

    Something (like plain common sense) tells me that, while she may not occupy that particular post; she’ll be situated somewhere else in some deceptive, decision-making or analytical capacity (off the radar) to further advance and hasten the demonic work of jihad to the detriment of our nation.
