Obama goes on Hawaiian vacation
without his varsity lineup
– and the bad guys take full notice.
Dec 22nd – White House Intel Briefing – all the big players present – some discussion of new al Qaeda threats. [Obama is focused on the passage of ObamaCare in the US Senate – $100 Million bribe to Senator Ben Nelson ~ should ~ provide that 60th vote].
Christmas Day – Northwest Flight 253 lands with a scorched Nigerian crotch bomber aboard – thanks only to fast-acting passengers. Obama’s tepid statement included the words “a passenger allegedly tried to ignite an explosive device on his body. Suspect in custody . . . charged with attempting to destroy an aircraft”. In Obama’s mind – this is a “crime” and the suspect is in custody – civilian custody. This is the same Obama who just 50 days prior gave a “shout out” to someone in the audience, then cautioned us not to jump to conclusions about a Muslim – Major Nidal Hasan who’d just killed 13 soldiers at Fort Hood.
Then Obama blames his various intelligence services: “Had this critical information been shared, it could have been compiled with other intelligence, and a fuller, clearer picture of the suspect would have emerged. The warning signs would have triggered red flags, and the suspect would have never been allowed to board that plane for America.”
“There was a mix of human and systemic failures that contributed to this potential catastrophic breach of security”. Really Sir??!? And would you be that human, and your ‘police matter Miranda rights mentality’ administration be the system in question?
Dec 30th: A Taliban fighter working for Sirajuddin Haqqani and being courted as an intelligence source blew himself up killing seven CIA people in Afghanistan.
Dec 31st: With his constant need to take center stage Obama issues a public statement on the deaths of the CIA Personnel in Afghanistan. This presidential statement – the first ever about CIA agents – greatly magnifies the “splendor” of the martyrdom of the assassin in the eyes of both al Qaeda and their target audience – the people of the region. With such a public statement – Obama has given al Qaeda a victory ten times greater. Shut the #uck up Barrack, – or were you really intending to praise them?
Folks, it is utter stupidity / naïvety like this which causes intel sources to dry up, and our allies to suddenly stop answering the phone. This will cost us a lot more lives, – just so Obama could take the spotlight and sound important – to himself.
Jan 2nd: Obama finally states that crotch-bomber is part of a Yemen-based al Qaeda group. Duh? The Obama government gave Yemen $67 Million in training and support to fight terrorism in 2009.
And – just to ice the cake – Somali pirates just grabbed several more ships – big ones! Hey Barrack – how’s that anti-piracy naval task force coming along? Barrack – if you still “don’t get it” – let me explain. Your Somali cousins are making a laughing stock of you, with nothing more than small arms and big balls. Happy frikkin New Year! One down, three to go.
