A Brit Sees Obama Clearly

Khalid Sheikh Mohammed- The left's favorite "victim"

This editorial comes to us from the The Telegraph (newspaper) in the UK. The writer, Gerald Warner, is spot on when it comes to the actions of Barack Obama on the water boarding issue. Not only is Obama following in the footsteps of Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton, both of whom cut our military and intelligence services to the bone, Obama seems prepared to go even farther than that. What CIA officer will stick his/her neck out to prevent the next 9-11 knowing that this president will throw them to the wolves? What presidential attorney or advisor will risk giving controversial advice to a president in the interest of preventing another 9-11?

The CIA officers and the Bush advisers who are responsible for water boarding should be thanked by a grateful nation for thwarting at least two known attacks-against Los Angeles and the Brooklyn Bridge. Only through water boarding of that puke, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, were the plots uncovered. And now the Democrats,, the ACLU, MSNBC and the rest of our 5th columnists in this country want to prosecute these people. It makes me sick to my stomach.

Thank you, Mr Warner. It is refreshing to know that not everybody has lost his/her mind in the UK.

Barack Obama vs the CIA-Why Does President Pantywaist Hates America So Much?

"If al-Qaeda, the Taliban and the rest of the Looney Tunes brigade want to kick America to death, they had better move in quickly and grab a piece of the action before Barack Obama finishes the job himself. Never in the history of the United States has a president worked so actively against the interests of his own people - not even Jimmy Carter.

Obama's problem is that he does not know who the enemy is. To him, the enemy does not squat in caves in Waziristan, clutching automatic weapons and reciting the more militant verses from the Koran: instead, it sits around at tea parties in Kentucky quoting from the US Constitution. Obama is not at war with terrorists, but with his Republican fellow citizens. He has never abandoned the campaign trail.

That is why he opened Pandora's Box by publishing the Justice Department's legal opinions on waterboarding and other hardline interrogation techniques. He cynically subordinated the national interest to his partisan desire to embarrass the Republicans. Then he had to rush to Langley, Virginia to try to reassure a demoralised CIA that had just discovered the President of the United States was an even more formidable foe than al-Qaeda.

"Don't be discouraged by what's happened the last few weeks," he told intelligence officers. Is he kidding? Thanks to him, al-Qaeda knows the private interrogation techniques available to the US intelligence agencies and can train its operatives to withstand them - or would do so, if they had not already been outlawed.

So, next time a senior al-Qaeda hood is captured, all the CIA can do is ask him nicely if he would care to reveal when a major population centre is due to be hit by a terror spectacular, or which American city is about to be irradiated by a dirty bomb. Your view of this situation will be dictated by one simple criterion: whether or not you watched the people jumping from the twin towers.

Obama promised his CIA audience that nobody would be prosecuted for past actions. That has already been contradicted by leftist groups with a revanchist ambition to put Republicans, headed if possible by Condoleezza Rice, in the dock. Talk about playing party politics with national security. Martin Scheinin, the United Nations special investigator for human rights, claims that senior figures, including former vice president Dick Cheney, could face prosecution overseas. Ponder that - once you have got over the difficulty of locating the United Nations and human rights within the same dimension.

President Pantywaist Obama should have thought twice before sitting down to play poker with Dick Cheney. The former vice president believes documents have been selectively published and that releasing more will prove how effective the interrogation techniques were. Under Dubya's administration, there was no further atrocity on American soil after 9/11.

President Pantywaist's recent world tour, cosying up to all the bad guys, excited the ambitions of America's enemies. Here, they realised, is a sucker they can really take to the cleaners. His only enemies are fellow Americans. Which prompts the question: why does President Pantywaist hate America so badly?"

Under Obama we can now expect at least 1 9/11 style or worse attack.

What will the nation do or say then?

Gary Fouse said...

We know what we will say. Obama left us unprepared.

Gary, you mean like Bush did? Findalis should move to Israel, she'd feel really safe there.
