Debbie Schlussel, Brigadier General Robert Holmes

Kicking the keester of a Brigadier General

By Judi McLeod

Wednesday, March 28, 2007

Consorting with the enemy on home turf is hardly what the men and women under him expect of a fully-fledged brigadier general. But that's precisely what Brigadier General Robert Holmes was doing Monday--and he was doing it on the taxpayers' tab.

Where about the morale of troops in harm's way? Why would the Deputy Director of Operations with U.S. Central Command (CENTCOM) be kissing the fannies of America's enemies in the same week that mask-wearing anarchists in the anti-war mob were burning the American flag and American soldiers in effigies?

Before he could say, "I surrender", Holmes was outed by the take-no-prisoners American commentator Debbie Schlussel.

Brig. Gen. Holmes did his white flag rounds with some of Detroit City's most notorious radical Muslim Arabs, including Osama Siblani--publisher of the anti-Semitic, anti-American Arab American News--even visiting their office.

According to theDetroit Free Press, Holmes said, "It's very important that we involve Arab Americans. Arab Americans play a huge role today, and play a very important role in where we have got to go."

Schlussel, Conservative political commentator, radio talk show host, columnist and attorney at law, has somewhere of her own to tell Holmes to go--and it isn't the officer's lounge.

The military Pooh-Bah seems to have been dressed to the nines when he went out on the white flag mission.

Schlussel, whose mother was born in a concentration camp and whose father is a Vietnam War veteran, described Monday's foray into enemy territory…(a) "cheap David Letterman look-alike and Miami Vice-wardrobed Brigadier General Robert Holmes."

While Holmes could have met with Christian Arab leaders in town, "instead, he carefully chose only the most extremist Muslim Arabs--the ones who openly endorse terrorist groups and homicide bombings."

"Siblani's paper openly praises Hezbollah--including its murder of over 300 U.S. Marines and officials in Beirut in 1983--and HAMAS--including its homicide bombings," Schlussel said. "Siblani has openly praised "the Hezbollah martyrs" and delivered prayers for them at rallies throughout Dearbornistan, this summer. His Arab-American PAC (of which he is President) featured an officer who sent me death threats and denied the Holocaust. He refused to denounce or condemn her comments.

"Holmes also met with FBI award revokee Imad Hamad, a "former" Islamic terrorist who endorses Palestinian TV broadcasts urging 3-year-olds to become homicide bombers. Hamad is involved with an Islamic charity, raided by the U.S. military and the FBI, because it is believed to be funding insurgent terrorists who are murdering our troops (and Iraqi civilians).

"And Holmes met with Abed Hammoud, another man who openly praises Hezbollah and HAMAS homicide bombings and activities and compares Jews to Nazis. And he met with Nasser Beydoun--yet another open Hezbollah supporter--who is on the small board of a charity with a man involved in a financial web funding Hezbollah. The charity, which ostensibly sends money to Lebanon for legitimate purposes, is under investigation. Beydoun organized an Arab economic conference featuring a business believed to have financed the 1998 U.S. Embassy bombings in East Africa."

Caving in to politically correct times is not an honorable pastime for a deputy director of operations with U.S. CENTCOM, according to the talk show host whose firm stand against radical Islam is legendary.

Political pandering doesn't wash with the sheer pluck of a woman who won admiration from the public at large when she went undercover into a mosque and reported on her findings as a reporter with the Detroit Free Press. The anger of the Muslim community when she could cite chapter and verse in presented examples of anti-Americanism and anti-Semitism never slowed her down.

"Holmes told all of these extremists he wants to "work with (them)."

"That's frightening, but (it's) the same loser path virtually all of our lazy, PC top officials in all aspects of government have been taking."

From her experience fighting radical Islam, Schlussel says Holmes won a special place with Siblani, Hamad, Hammoud and Beydoun. "They gushed over him, which they rarely do regarding U.S. officials: "He was really reaching out," said Siblani. "It reflects a new, positive attitude of the U.S. armed forces"…

"If terrorist supporters and a "former" terrorist liked Brig. Gen. Holmes' words, that should be a hint to the rest of us that whatever he said isn't good for America.

"When our top generals overseeing our military operations in Iraq, Afghanistan, and elsewhere openly lick the boots of our worst enemies within--all in the name of a phony "outreach"--we shouldn't be surprised that we're losing all over the world."

Schlussel has this piece of advice for Holmes: "When you kiss the ass of your enemies, you get spanked (and worse)."

And speaking of posteriors, Brig. Gen. Robert Holmes seems to have got his kicked in by a soldier in high heels.
