>> The System is Failing because of the Obama Administration is failing!
Posted January 4, 2010on:
Our national security is at an all time low because the Obama administration is striping our security system of its resources. They are also demoralizing our CIA, FBI, other security agents and agencies and even our armed forces with incessant and unreasonable restrictions and investigations. The CIA and FBI have been threatened with criminal prosecution by the International Criminal Court and this past week Obama by Presidential Order has placed all americans under the jurisdiction of the international police force INTERPOL with no restrictions on their behavior at all. They are immuned from our Constitutional laws! American Navy SEALS are being court marshalled for capturing al Qaeda thugs! Obama now wants all security personnel who screen people at air ports to be unionized so they can go out on strike and hold Americans hostage and so that incompetent employees or those found to have violated the trust put in them can not be fired.
The system hasn’t failed, the Obama Administration has failed!
This past weekend the American public learned that not only was the Obama administration briefed about the bombing technique attempted on Flight 253, not only did the United States have information that a Nigerian was being prepared for a terrorist attack by al Qaeda in Yemen, but our government also knew that an “Umar Farouk” was involved.
The complete failure of the Obama administration to connect the dots on the Flight 253 bomber was not an isolated incident. On June 2nd of this year, Adulhakim Mujahid Muhammad, upset about the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, shot and killed one soldier and wounded another while they were standing outside a military recruiting center in Little Rock, Arkansas. And on November 5th, Nidal Malik Hasan, also upset about the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, opened fire at Fort Hood, Texas, killing 12 people and wounding 31 others. And on December 10th, five young men, all Muslim extremists from Northern Virginia, were arrested in Pakistan at the home of a man linked to a radical jihadist group.Since 2001, there have been 28 failed terrorist attacks against the United States. That averages out to about three foiled attempts per year. In 2009, there were six failed attempts — the most in one year. As troubling as these incidents are by themselves, Americans should be concerned about a White House that looks at this body of evidence and then declares “the system is working.” No, it is not.
The problem is not, as Brennan would have us believe, an isolated incident of “human error.” It is a failure of leadership. A failure by the occupant of the White House to admit we are at war and use the tools at his disposal to protect. Instead of providing stability and confidence in the intelligence community by seeking the renewal of key investigatory authorities authorized under the USA Patriot Act, President Obama has settled for a six-month extension tacked on to the Defense appropriations bill. Instead of going to Congress and pushing for a comprehensive war-on-terror detainee system, President Obama has punted the issue to the Federal Courts. Instead of promising victory for our war on terror efforts in Afghanistan, President Obama sent fewer troops than were required for a maximum military effort and gave al Qaeda a set date for our withdrawal.
