Skip to comments.Barack Hussein Obama: An Al-Qaeda Approved President
Posted on 12/29/2009 1:35:05 PM PST by The Conservative Camp
On Christmas Day, just as Northwest Flight 253 crossed over the Detroit River at the point where Canadian airspace ends and U.S. airspace begins, a Nigerian Muslim, with verifiable Al Qaeda ties, attempted to ignite an explosive chemical mix with the intention of bringing down the plane and violently killing all 278 passengers and 11 crew members on board. Within hours of this attempted terrorist act of war upon American infidels, dispatches from Al-Qaeda confirmed what the Nigerian would-be murderer had already confessed to the FBI; that the bomber, whose name is Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, had been trained in the use of detonating the explosive PETN by Al Qaeda of the Arabian Peninsula in Yemen. This is the same type of explosive that Al Qaeda terrorist Richard Reid had used in his attempt to down a Miami-bound airliner over the Atlantic in 2001. Had it not been for the heroic actions of some passengers on board the aircraft, there could have been a horrible outcome, with the death of all on board and a swath of death and destruction on the ground of Metropolitan Detroit.
So how is it that President Obama waited until December 28 to make a response to this incident? Furthermore, why is this President so concerned about giving these Islamist murderers the protections of our U.S. Constitution by treating this act of war like a simple bank hold-up? Consider his following remarks during his response;
Heres what we know so far: On Christmas Day, Northwest Airlines Flight 253 was en route from Amsterdam, Netherlands, to Detroit. As the plane made its final approach to Detroit Metropolitan Airport, a passenger allegedly tried to ignite an explosive device on his body, setting off a fire.
Thanks to the quick and heroic actions of passengers and crew, the suspect was immediately subdued, the fire was put out, and the plane landed safely. The suspect is now in custody and has been charged with attempting to destroy an aircraft.
A full investigation has been launched into this attempted act of terrorism, and we will not rest until we find all who were involved and hold them accountable.
Notice that Obama uses legal boilerplate terms such as allegedly and suspect, to describe the terrorist and the atrocity that he attempted. There was nothing alleged about what Abdulmutallab attempted over Detroit. Further in his remarks, Obama said;
Finally, the American people should remain vigilant, but also be confident. Those plotting against us seek not only to undermine our security, but also the open society and the values that we cherish as Americans. This incident, like several that have preceded it, demonstrates that an alert and courageous citizenry are far more resilient than an isolated extremist.
There was nothing isolated about this attempted attack on our country and the West in general. This terrorist was on a list of known and named Islamist radicals who were not allowed entry into the United States. This terrorists own father, a high ranking member of a Nigerian financial institution, even tried to warn authorities in the West, and the United States in particular, about the concern he had of his sons radical indoctrination and flirtations with known Islamists terror groups. The authorities in the Netherlands even alerted U.S. officials of the passenger list, apparently with no objection from American security officials. Topping all of this is the revelation that two of the Al-Qaeda leaders involved in this latest plot were once Gitmo terrorist detainees who were eventually released from the detention center, only to return to their jihadist roots to focus on murdering innocent civilians. And finally, Al-Qaeda has openly confirmed that they were behind this mans training, funding and equipment.
Misleading statements that Obama made on Monday are absurd in their context, not only because they further endanger our nation from the very real threat of a very real and evil enemy by intentionally keeping Americans in the dark about the true nature of radical Islamist doctrine, but they also encourage our enemies in Al Qaeda and the Islamist world to continue plotting attacks and murder by demonstrating our inability to treat these attempts as the acts of war they really are. By acting like each attack is now an isolated criminal act by a crazed or disenfranchised youth, instead of an act by a large terrorist organization completely dedicated and hell-bent on all of our destruction in the name of Islam, Obama, Holder and Napolitano are telling our enemies that we will not fight back when they make war on us. We will simply arrest these criminals, and not rest until all the crooks are brought to justice. It really makes you feel secure knowing that this President, who seems almost sympathetic to these Islamist terrorists, decides to let Eric Holders Justice Department take the lead in fighting the War on Terror, now morphed into Obamas Overseas Contingency for the Prevention of Tragic Man-Caused Disasters.
There is no doubt that most Muslims are peaceful and just want to go on living their lives. But as several others have highlighted, even though most Muslims are not radical or terrorists, almost every act of terrorism in the world today is perpetrated by practitioners of radical Islam. These radical Islamists, unfortunately, are hurting not only the infidels to whom they seek to cleanse from the world, they also hurt peaceful, law-abiding Muslims who want nothing to do with aims of the violent jihadists, namely, the globe ruled under Islamic Sharia Law.
Until the majority of peaceful Muslims stand up to the radicals that poison their religion and our world, they will all be stereotyped by non-Muslims as part of the problem. That may be unfair, yet it is also unfair that non-Muslims must continue to live in a state of constant fear and inconvenience of politically-correct strip searches and lines in airports out of fear of racial profiling those who come from a background that is historically and typically Islamic. When an eighty-year-old, white-haired Caucasian grandmother is pulled aside for a targeted strip search by Department of Homeland Security agents so there is no appearance of profiling a singular group, we have crossed the politically correct path to insanity in this country.
President Obamas policies against our national security structure, including his reversion to treating a real shooting war more as a pre-9/11 Clintonian mindset as nothing more than a law-enforcement problem, have simply emboldened Al Qaeda and their allies once again. There is no doubt that this presidents total disregard for reality and his pursuit of a politically correct Utopia will bring on another disastrous atrocity against the United States at the hands of Al Qaeda. Maybe we Americans will then finally wake up to the reality that we do have a real enemy who wants us destroyed. Maybe at that point, we will finally become serious about getting the job of winning the War on Islamist Fascism instead of pursuing idiotic politically-correct policies. Maybe then we will finally put our national interests, i.e. survival, ahead of trying to become loved by the international community and the United Nations.
Until that day, however, there can be no doubt that Al Qaeda has found the perfect ally in the White House with whom they can work. Barack Hussein Obama seems to have the Al Qaeda stamp of approval.
Stay alert when you fly the friendly skies.
Maybe we'll finally get series....wait, nawwww, what time is American Idle on? Do I have time to run to the beer store?
And the aged American 'Giant' slumbers on. I know that sounds defeatist, yet most I talk to don't seem to care or even want to care.
How about the next time some POS tries this, the other passengers beat him to death. This would then at least allow Napolitano to be telling the truth the next time she says “the system worked”. And it would eliminate the need for liberal hand wringing about what to do with these dogs.
What about 278 counts of attempted murder? what about 278 counts of HATE CRIMES? Same for the Ft. Hood bastard. Where are the HATE CRIMES charges?
And BTW, this terrorist was trained in the same Yemen that brought us the USS Cole bombing, where those terrorists, once captured, “escaped” from prison. It’s time to level that country.
We are in a heap of trouble if we do not pull our collective heads out of our collective keisters.
The crotch bomber was in contact with Awlaki in Yemen.
THE SAME AWLAKI THAT WAS IN CONTACT WITH 9-11 MUSLIM BOMBERS AND THE FORT HOOD MUSLIM!!!!
OUR MUSLIM PRESIDENT IS GOING TO GET US KILLED!!!
Uh Huh, OK, I agree. But who's going to do it? Obama? NOT Where is a President like Ron Reagan when you need him? This country is so Screwed!!
Agree. The problem with Yemen is that if you try to make it into a smoking hole, all you’re doing is adding smoke.
It’s pretty much nothing more that a riot with borders
Absolutely justifiable self defense. Problem is, The Obama administration would find a way to bring you to trial.
” I know that sounds defeatist, yet most I talk to don’t seem to care or even want to care.”
I agree, RG. I had to tell several “friends” at a post Christmas party about the terrorist attack. They said they hadn’t “heard” about it..that they don’t watch the news very often. And these same people get to VOTE???
One muzzie on a jury and he’ll be out the door..
They watch when voting comes close. Popularity contests is all elections are anymore. And yes, they Vote. Sad.
I hate to even think of my solution. We dis armed the passengers, what else can we do?

Exactly. Obama would re-open Gitmo to hold the passengers that were involved in the beating. And he would have to prolong his World Apology Tour.
