Is Obama sending troops to Baghdad to destroy the U.S. embassy ahead of an attack?

On Monday’s radio program, Glenn boldly declared that he hopes the United States detonates its $1 billion Baghdad embassy before it falls into enemy hands. While Glenn was not sure exactly what is going on at the embassy, he knows from his own research that something is not right there.

“When we were at CNN, we started looking into the Baghdad embassy… It was estimated [to cost] over $1 billion at the time, and there were no pictures of this. No one was talking about it… It’s bigger than all of Vatican City,” Glenn explained on Monday. “When we were on CNN, I started showing pictures of the ground of what they were… starting to build. I said what are we doing?”

It didn’t take long, however, for Glenn and his producers to get word from CNN brass telling them to stop talking.

“The Bush Administration called CNN and said, ‘Tell him to stop talking about the embassy.’ I got pressure from the network to stop talking. Imagine. CNN didn’t like President [Bush], and CNN was telling us, ‘Hey, you know, you might want to stop talking. This is going to hurt our troops,’” Glenn continued. “There was no reason why we should stop. So we continued to talk about the embassy. There’s something wrong with that embassy… I don’t know if it’s an NSA listening post or what it is. But that’s not a normal run-of-the-mill embassy. Period.”

Hours later, President Obama announced plans to deploy approximately 275 troops to Iraq who will “provide support and security for U.S. personnel and the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad.” About 160 troops are already in Iraq, including 50 Marines and more than 100 Army soldiers. The U.S. will put an additional 100 soldiers in a nearby third country where they would be held in reserve until needed.

On radio this morning, Glenn, Pat, and Stu renewed talks about the embassy and speculated what those troops will really be doing on the ground in Baghdad.

“This is my speculation, but I’m pretty sure of it,” Glenn said. “What the hell are 275 people going to do? Here’s my guess: Those are not just regular Marines. Those are Marines that are being sent directly to the embassy, not to defend, but to destroy.”

Due to the sheer size and scope of the embassy, Glenn believes that if the President was really serious about defending the property, he would have sent a bigger team.

“That embassy is 80 football fields [long]. That’s not an embassy. I don’t know what it is, but it is not an embassy. I can guarantee you: Those guys will be dropped in and will destroy everything in that embassy that we have put in there,” Glenn explained. “If that’s not what that is, [then it’s] a suicide mission. And the President has sent people on suicide missions before in our embassy, namely Benghazi, so he is not necessarily opposed to it. I just don’t think he would want to do that. But if I’m told I have to stand my ground at the embassy, that’s a suicide mission.”

Pat and Stu weren’t so certain that the 275 soldiers could not adequately defend the embassy.

“But it depends on what comes after you,” Stu interjected. “If all 10,000 people come at the exact same time to the embassy, it will be hard to defend, you’re right. If you have factions that get there and the rest of them are dealing with the Iraqi military, that could be something the 275 could do.”

Stu went on to explain that he does not believe President Obama wants anything to do with the conflict. With two years left of his presidency, he would much rather focus on pet projects like global warming initiatives, but he also has a legacy to protect. Glenn, however, wasn’t convinced.

“I don’t think he wants to put troops back in there, but I think he would take the basic steps to try to shore up the Iraqi army… Seems like that is what they are doing… They aren’t going to let these 10,000 troops march in here, take over the entire country and our $1 billion building,” Stu explained. “The President of the United States doesn’t want to deal with the fallout of that, whatever fallout there would be. I can’t believe that’s what he wants his last two years to be about.”

“He’s a guy that believes he can talk them down from a tree,” Glenn concluded. “That’s where the thinking from the President is. He knows what the caliphate is, and I believe he thinks that is the will of the people over there, so let them have their caliphate.”

    He wants more ambassadors and soldiers killed by the extremist’s since he is a Trojan horse muslim sent to destroy America. It’s the only thing that makes sense given this ahole’s policies and actions.

  • ThorsteinVeblen2012

    If Obama is as evil as Beck suggests then why hasn’t the military through a mass of retired officers risen up in mass and spoken against him?

    During the Bush administration a number of generals retired early and became outspoken critics of the war in Iraq. No one made the accusation as Beck has that Bush was a traitor.

    http://legacy.utsandiego.com/news/world/iraq/20070923-9999-1n23generals.html

    If Obama is committing treason then the officer corps of the military is abetting the treason. It doesn’t add up.

  • Crassus

    Most military officers care (at least the higher ranking ones) care only about their pensions. The military is like any other organization. Nobody wants to rock the boat. Obamao has already fired plenty of generals whom he thought weren’t reliable. Now we’re left with the ones who don’t want to rock the boat. They’ll go along until retirement time and then collect their hefty pensions. If these pensions are still there by the time they retire, that is.

    I think you make sense and ask a valid question. However, just think about the high-ranking generals who have been “assasinated” by obama already. The new replacements want to keep their positions and the fat retirement perks. Also, they can all see that obama is out to destroy the military. The military is not what it used to be.

    The way things are going these days, I bet the whole military is corrupt at the highest level. Just like the rest of America. Yes, America is corrupt by agreeing to be controled by the government. The majority of Americans are programmed to sit back, enjoy the propaganda on TV and elsewhere and keep voting liberal. Obama has commited crimes against the US law and the Constitution and is still hailed as a hero by MOST Americans, as evidenced by the last vote.

    What fallout? It’s Bush’s fault!

  • ThorsteinVeblen2012

    What generals has Obama assassinated? A number of generals have screwed up for various reasons during Obama’s administration but there is little evidence of a conspiracy. There were senior officers that have been cashiered out all through history.

    Obama kept many of the senior defense and security officials from the Bush Administration. The evidence would suggest Obama did nothing to disrupt the military.

    If all these people are as corrupt as to conspire against the military in the manner suggested here then the country is lost.

    What Obama thinks, Obama gets; When Obama does not think, he acts; And when he stands up, he falls asleep. Why did (we) build the ‘city’ to begin with? No one knows and no one really cares. How many knew- only those with a need to know! The government, not ‘our’ government, does anything with your money they desire – and informing anyone is a breach of national security- or the revealing of a lie- depending on which side you are on.

    Page Two: Obama recruited al-Qaida in Syria to overthrow the government of Syria, providing modern American military hardware, including anything they might need. They immediately turned against Iraq! (They promised not to do THAT!!) Obama then begged Iran for assistance, i..e, purchased their assistance. Iran agreed to assist, if Obama would stop whining about their nuke program, and provide them with American state-of-the-art military hardware. No Problem- must fight fire with equal fire- right? SOOOOO, now, The US, Iran and the Iraqi (American backed) government, are fighting al-Qaida, who has American support-provided weaponry, PLUS a fleet of Blackhawk helicopters, which were a gift to the Iraq government. Three major players in the Middle East, all fighting with American provided hardware. What should I do, mused Obama – send in American troops to protect American interest / lies from American supported troops? The snake truly does eat itself in the end… What a total shit-storm- ALL instigated by a gutless, homo-Fascist dictator who is holding the Office of the President hostage. Will anyone stand up and propose a ‘stop-action’ , NOPE. No one cares or has the brass to even think, much less act.

    Page Three: An almost identical situation has and is taking place in Ukraine, ditto, ditto…Obama generated genocide, with Joe Bidden and John McCain as his front men…All action taken against demonized citizens who demonstrate against the Nazi-Fascist government installed by Obama, JB & JM. Obama provided tanks, APCs, automatic weapons, hollow core and exploding ammo, rockets, helicopters, Blackwater/Creystone killers/advisors, gas and chemicals, even bacteria laden meat from the country of Georgia, all used against the civilians of Ukraine. NOW, since the second week in May, the US has put troops on the ground in Ukraine to assist in killing the anti-Nazi/anti-American civilians living in Ukraine. American snipers, riding in American tanks patrol the streets day and night shooting civilians on the streets and in their apartments at night. Anyone and everyone is a target. Children and women have been slaughtered with gun fire, iron rods and axes, mutilated and body parts strewn in the streets and on sidewalks. Young men refusing to fight for Kiev are killed, or have both legs broken or have their families slaughtered. THIS WAS AND IS BEING SUPPORTED BY OBAMA, JOE BIDDEN AND JOHN MCCAIN. YOU DON’T BELIEVE ME- PAY FOR THE TRIP AND I’LL PROVIDE VIDEO , or if you have the guts to do anything, go with me- OR WATCH FOREIGN NEWS AND WATCH THEIR VIDEO. I HAVE CHILDREN AND G-CHILDREN IN UKRAINE, I HAVE BEEN THERE, AND RECEIVE NEWS DAILY.

    Finally, a big discussion continues on EU / Russia selling gas to Ukraine – Joe Bidden’s son has a gas exploration firm in Ukraine, and has located gas, really? Wake up- your dictator is doing all possible to start WW III, and the destruction of America. The only thing delaying this happening is the common sense and lack of motivation of China and Russia. If they were as insane as Obama, most likely you would not be breathing today.

  • Ron Beal

    Obama is a continuation of what the Bushes started or continued from their prior comrades; Obama is Bush W on steroids. Remember the officers, both generals and Jr officers that have been forced out of the military because they indicated they would not fire on American citizens? How about a retirement plan: Your pension of $60-70K / year and you keep your mouth shut? How many today speak out against Obama? How many today are recruiting a disgruntled, veteran force to take back our country? Most likely NONE.. It takes more than two trucks to make a convoy…

    Plenty of generals came out against the war in Iraq. Many took early retirement and sacrificed a portion of their retirement so that could speak out. I met Anthony Zinni who had retired just before the Bush Administration who said so directly. Where is he and the rest if Barack Obama is trying to sabotage the country?

    No one has done the same to make an issue that Obama is conspiring as the allegations posted here claim.

    No I don’t believe your contention that the leadership of the military is run completely by cowards more concerned about their pensions.

    That is so ludicrous a contention as to be laughable.

    A great assessment of Obama as a Trojan Horse sent to destroy America. George Soros, Bill Gates, Warren Buffett, and many more wealthy people from Saudi Arabia definitely want to turn our country into a socialist/Muslim nation and they, plus some ill advised Americans, are the ones who backed Obama and the Democrat Party starting in 2006.

    The dam Democrats and liberals have closed ranks around Obumer and cheat, lie, and play dirty to advance their agenda. I just don’t understand why conservatives and conservative politicians don’t turn the tables on the Democrats and play dirty also. I am sure that PI’s could dig up all the dirt is required to play the same game. The current lie regarding the IRS lost email is the most current example. You can bet they are/were squirreled away because there is a smoking gun in them. I wouldn’t put it past the current Administration and Democrats to use blackmail to hush up stuff. I here a 2 star General is to head the investigation in to the soldier deserter vs Terrorist trade. I hope the General has the guts to report the truth rather than white wash it in favor of Obumer. Then there is the NSA game and Obumer’s façade of restricted data collection and storage.

    What Glenn isn’t saying, but is still relevant to his point, is that the Iranian army is already in Baghdad to help the Shi’a there defend against ISIS. A Bunch of wild rebels who are more intent on slaughter and looting are not going to be able to pick apart and use the truly valueable intelligence of that embassy, but the Iranians could.

    There is also a silver lining in all of this as well. The Kurds might finally get their wish after so long for their own autonomous nation, rather then just living in ‘autonomous communities within Iraq’. And by god they’ve certainly earned this, since both in Desert Storm and our more recent invasion and occupation of Iraq, they’ve assisted our troops in so many ways, from providing defense on the flanks, guides and translators who are -very- intimate with the area, and in general were far more appreciative of what we sought to do. They’re almost like the Jews in Israel as well, having had their homeland taken from them by the Turks (Later to be Ottomons), and have fought for roughly a thousand years against them. What more unlike the main Iraqi military the Kurds will not turn and run so lightly now that they are so close to their dream, since in their mind they’ve always been a Kurd before they’ve been a Muslim, or whatever religious affiliation a tribe might had.

    IF you don’t believe me, just look at any map made of what the Kurds regularly inhabit, and then look at the battle lines of the places ISIS has looted. They all end -right before- they enter Kurdish territory, which likely means that they have held them off all along it, from Syria to Iraq. Or it means the people in ISIS are afraid of them and are leaving well enough alone.

    You’re sounding crazy on this one Glenn. My husband works at the Embassy in Bagdad, and it’s not some crazy subversive spy place. What are you thinking, speculating all kinds of crazy stuff like this? I am fine with the military sending additional troops to hold and defend the Embassy. There aren’t any terrorists in the area at this time. These are precautionary measures, like they should have taken at another embassy you may have heard of. What good is all this speculation doing anyway? Too many people getting paid to speculate these days it seems to me.

    I remember the Tom Clancy novel, Debt of Honor, about a terrorist crashing a plane into the U.S. Capital during a special joint session the President, most of the cabinet and Congress in one fell swoop. Want to hear a wild conspiracy theory: The Malaysian airliner that disappeared, never crashed. Instead it was re-routed to a secret Al Qaeda base in Pakistan where it is being outfitted with a bomb and radar-jamming apparatus and re-painted with the colors of a different airline or even Air Force Two. This will cause the fighters over Washington, DC to hesitate in shooting it down until it’s too late. In fact, the plane wouldn’t have to fly the bomb into the Capitol. It could do much more damage to the US by detonating a high-yield weapon at 35000 feet between NYC and DC causing an electromagnetic pulse (EMP) that would effectively cripple the entire East Coast and our financial markets.

  • Native Pride 1973

    First off, every one knows that embassies are where CIA offices are held so I wouldn’t be surprised if a good section of that was to hold CIA officers and paramilitary officers and maybe some JSOC sections as well considering how high target Iraq is. Secondly, 275 marines + the regular Diplomatic security, which is also probably really high as well, could easily defend the Embassy from a low to medium level attack, though it would difficult if they faced several thousand terrorists at once. Also, if my hunch is correct, they probably have a good size number of JSOC and CIA paramilitary officers there for support too. A billion dollar embassy in Iraq really isn’t that insane if you think about it. I mean, its Iraq, they have to ship almost all of the supplies and high-tech equipment there from the US and the building has to be done by US contractors so a billion seems just about right for the size of the embassy.

  • Native Pride 1973

    Its not like it would be that much of a secret. I mean they have to come from somewhere and someone would see them leave and someone would have to see them arrive in Iraq and go to the embassy. Its not like you can hide 275 marines.

  • Native Pride 1973

    That makes ALOT more sense then what Glenn says. But the US isn’t evacuating and those Marines aren’t there to evacuate anybody.

    Ummmm…… Obama isn’t a Muslim….. secondly, the 5 terrorists where traded for a US soldier. You know, the whole “No soldier left behind” thing?

  • Diane Holbert Rember

    You are correct about the coffins. I live near Atlanta, and there is a concentration camp-like structure over in Madison, GA (that can house over a million people) where there are also 100,000′s over-sized coffins stored that will each hold up to 7 adult bodies. And, I’ve been told, if you drive by, and slow down to take a look, the state patrol come out of the woodwork and tell you to move on “there’s nothing to see here.” And, the property also has something else very peculiar – railroad tracks……sound familiar?

  • jamjon

    You morons argue back and forth over Obama and Bush. Hilarious that some of you think the best defense for Obama is “Yeah but Bush…” These professional politicians are all in the same camp.They play the public and most fall right in line and choose up sides while the politicians rape us all. All while you cheer and defend the outrages of your side.

    It would be quite easy to detonate the Embassy just as the Iraqi soldiers enter the compound. Some well placed explosives could get about a thousand of them.

  • Elena

    You do live in hope, Glenn. Obama is not about to do anything to prevent a security breach such as the embassy being overrun, even if it is Langley East.

    They are not combat engineers; they are security and FAST company Marines. It will be up to the ambassador to have the documents destroyed before the whole thing falls apart.

    I have more confidence in the Peshmerga in Kirkuk than the Shi’a militias in Baghdad or the rest of the south.

  • Cody

    Glenn Beck just lost all credibility with me. Wow… he’s fallen into the same group as the 911 truthers. Another example of a good guy gone nuts.

    Let me preface my next comments with that I am a politically, socially and economic conservative Republican. I did not vote for, nor do I support the political or social ideology of our current administration. As a Marine who’s been to the American Embassy in Baghdad I can tell you that the embassy is not 80 football fields long. (That’s 8000 meters, or 8 kilometers, or 4.3 miles IN LENGTH???) Maybe he means in circumference, or 8 kilometers square. Words mean things and Glenn chose his poorly.

    The Marines sent in are part of the Fleet Anti-terrorists Security Team (FAST Company). Their job, by doctrine, is to reinforce embassy security. Is one of their jobs to destroy sensitive material, no. That is one of the jobs of the Marine Security Guard (MSG) detachment. The FAST Company Marines will provide perimeter security while the Embassy Marines execute thier doctrinal mission of internal security, and if overrun by ISIS, destroy sensitive material.

    Glenn Beck is a good guy, but don’t let his psychosis lead you astray. He’s dead wrong on this particular issue.

    Even Cruz says Congress isn’t going to Impeach the crud as long as Harry Reid (who has a stanglehold on the Senate) is in command the Senate (which would be charged with the actual trial) would completely make a mockery of the entire Impeachment and find the crud innocent of any unconstitutional wrong-doing…so basically, we have to get rid of Reid before we can get anywhere with Impeachment.

    Not long after his First Inaugural Ball, Obama installs Muslim Brotherhood agents in security-sensitive DOJ positions. In bully-pulpit speeches Obama demands the overthrow of 28-year ally Hosni Mubarak, empowering the insurrectional Muslim Brotherhood, dormant for 80 years. Obama’s Operation ‘Fast & Furious’ arms drug lords, encouraging murder of bribe-resistant American law enforcement officers. Obama transfers heavy weapons to the Muslim Brotherhood in Libya to kill Qadhafi. They later use those weapons to murder the American ambassador and 3 others in Benghazi, only weeks before Obama’s Second Inaugural Ball. (Were it not for these inaugural balls, Barry would have no balls at all). Obama next sends weapons to the Muslim Brotherhood in Syria to depose Bashar Assad. Moving to Iraq, the Muslim horde prepares to behead Americans at our military bases and embassy. Is Barack Hussein Obama the President of the United States or the Muslim Brotherhood? Congress won’t Impeach? Vote out every Democrat and Republican lawmaker in ’14.

    you all have obama wrong obama is a puppet of david rockerfellas brezinskis sorros banking cartel there pick a black muslim to win over germany and europe remeber how obama bailed out all the banks well that doesnt make him a communist the forien policy is to play china on russia and to put missiles in poland ukraine for a america first strike capability on russia iran and maybe china as well america petrodollar will collapse by 2016 its baked into the cake so theromoneclear war is the only way out for the western bankers russia knows this from snowden being there brezinski hell bent on destroying russia he doesnt care for the middle east like the repubs do the game is on a much larger scale with this white house WW3 in the making

    Is the Baghdad Embassy the destination for the tons of high explosives, Shape Charges and Detcord that was ordered by DHS earlier this year?

    First of all, we have has an embassy of some sort for a long time in Iraq. And Obama spent $$ on upgrades to that embassy also. I would think that it will be a nice headquarters for the new islamic terrorist regime….lol

    I suspect its a command and control center to direct military movements throughout Iraq You can also coordinate air and land forces for sttacks against the enemy. Carpet bombing from.high altitude to disperse enemy positions and armored.targets and then.lower altitude to pick off individial.targets.

  • Jack Splat

    If this embassy is some sort of spying center then how come they didn’t see ISIS coming a hundred miles away ?

  • Jack Splat

    I’d also like to point out how Putin is noticeably silent on all this and is the top ally of Iraq’s long term enemy, Iran. What’s up with that?

    Bush built a “fort” not an embassy as you know it. It has its own power station, water/sewer treatment plant, housing, military posts, recreational, office buildings etc. for American personnel and all surrounded by a “hopefully” impenetrable wall. Not to say that something dirty isn’t going on inside but the aforementioned is why it is so big. It’s an American town encompassed by a wall smack dab in the middle of Baghdad.

  • Dustin

    Did you not read the opening statement of the webpage you sited? “The Embassy opened in January 2009 following a series of construction
    delays. It replaced the previous embassy, which opened July 1, 2004 in
    Baghdad’s Green Zone in a former Palace of Saddam Hussein.”
    Further down it states “With construction beginning in mid-2005″ So you are correct about GB starting it, but you are incorrect on your evidence supporting that statement
