Obama amputates our nuclear arms
By: Charles Krauthammer
Under President Obamas new policy, however, if the state that has just attacked us with biological or chemical weapons is in compliance with the Non-Proliferation Treaty, explained Gates, then the U.S. pledges not to use or threaten to use nuclear weapons against it.
Imagine the scenario: Hundreds of thousands are lying dead in the streets of Boston after a massive anthrax or nerve gas attack. The president immediately calls in the lawyers to determine whether the attacking state is in compliance with the NPT. If it turns out that the attacker is up-to-date with its latest IAEA inspections, well, it gets immunity from nuclear retaliation. (Our response is then restricted to bullets, bombs and other conventional munitions.)
However, if the lawyers tell the president that the attacking state is NPT noncompliant, we are free to blow the bastards to nuclear kingdom come.
This is quite insane. Its like saying that if a terrorist deliberately uses his car to mow down a hundred people waiting at a bus stop, the decision as to whether he gets hanged or 100 hours of community service hinges entirely on whether his car had passed emissions inspections.
Apart from being morally bizarre, the Obama policy is strategically loopy. Does anyone believe that North Korea or Iran will be more persuaded to abjure nuclear weapons because they could then carry out a biological or chemical attack on the United States without fear of nuclear retaliation?
The naivete is stunning.

Just dribbling in from Iran sources, which often take a while to be clarified and confirmed as well as can be done, is this horrifying information.
The very high tech pilotless UAV reportedly brought down and captured by Iran was a PRE-PLANNED GIFT from Obama to the Mullahs to update Iran’s ability to penetrate Israel stealthily.
In the past weeks Iranian UAVs were spotted and shot down THREE times in Israeli air space. Launched at very close range from Hezbollah territory, their penetration into Israel is hard to prevent instantly but so far so good.
Oh c’mon. Bibi would have blown the whistle on that one.
Absolutely. And all parties know this but it gets ignored as if it does not exist.
Blown the whistle to whom? Iran knows it, Obama knows it, and so do the Europeans. It would not change anything.
Only the American people and the Obamabots, do not know it and are so bamboozled by Oba-Hussein-Khomeini they cannot come to grips (yet) with this serial liar and his ignoring the law, ignoring the Constitution and working against American interests,
Well...he had a meeting with Romney. Are you saying Romney favors UAVs to Iran?
Romney does not have executive power yet and is getting intelligence briefings from the CIA. . The rest is a waste of whistle breath for now. Smile. Give it a few more weeks to blown out or die on the vine as it is suppressed by Lame street media

Oh man, if we could only get this double checked and triple sourced, this could be our October surprise for Obama. Makes me sick to even think it possible, but hey, we're at war with communism and Islam - or we used to be.
Does Romney know this information? His connections could check this out. . and fast. What about Newt? Rush?
What a great debate topic! Yowza!
My sources are often grey area people and will not come forward with confirmable documentation, often because that would give them away.
Over time I have lost some good sources - in reality they were burned because their voices were recognized by Islamic Iranian counter espionage agents and their phone numbers at both ends of the line were identified. Quite simple activity for counter espionage trained agents who used equipment from the West. And were supported by Russian and Chinese intelligence worldwide.
They had also often worked together in the past as colleagues in the Shah’s time, worked against the Islamic regime before they turned to the Islamic regime for pay.
Perhaps it is a jaundiced view of the extent of Obama’s treachery BUT MY ANALYSIS OF THE EVENTS IS THAT OBA-HUSSEIN-KHOMEINI WITHDREW PROTECTION AS PART OF A PLAN TO CREATE A 1979 TEHRAN HOSTAGE TYPE SITUATION THAT WOULD DISTRACT NOVEMBER VOTERS AND ALLOW HIM A PLATFORM TO BECOME A NATIONAL HERO - but it went wrong when his intended hostages were killed - cutting short the nefarious self-serving strategy.
What say you?
This would explain them ‘playing dumb’ by saying they weren’t told about prior security requests.
Yes. Specially as the hostage takers would be Moslem Brotherhood terrorists he could control or at the least who would co-operate with his tactics.
Thanks for the ping!
Based on a number of posts on the subject here at FR, I say:
The terror gang of over 100 has probably been organized some time waiting for either the right time or notification from outside. Zawahari gave the word a month before that they should avenge the death of his lieutenant Al-Libi on 9/11, he may even have said they should brutalize our Ambassador’s body in the same way Gaddafi was sodomized, either to throw the blame on ex-Gaddafi militia/gang types, or to satisfy some who are now within groups communicating with Zawahiri. What say YOU??
Note: Above link has a footnote out to August 20, 2012.
What does that tell you?
ID on the UAVs?
Thanks for the ping.
I concur with that conclusion. It’s all he has left
