Spot on, kristinn. Thanks for this thread...
Not only is Obama weakening us overseas with his constant apologizing for America [until very recently], he is now jeopardizing our domestic security by trying to spin terrorist attacks as the acts of a “lone wolf.” His utter disregard for the American public is a sad, but typical, commentary on the left wing elitists. Further, we need to focus all of our efforts on the enemy and not be distracted by the CYA behavior emanating from the White House. That kind of thinking has a way of embedding itself throughout the system!
Most of all, I am personally incensed at his constant use of legal jargon and implications that these are judicial matters and not military matters.
The bomber should not be “alleged” to have attempted to blow up the plane, he was caught in the act. Nor should he be a “suspect”. He is, in fact, a terrorist, part of an international conspiracy of militant Islamists out to destroy us. It is not a court case, it is a war!
Despite being on TV almost every day of the year, often for the most inane reasons, our President was no where to be found for three days after what would have been, if successful, the worst terrorist attack on the US since 9-11. Need I remind anyone here of the criticism that Pres. Bush took for taking just a minute or two to compose himself and his thoughts after being notified [in public view, no less] of the 9-11 attack. Where are the naysayers to hold Obama’s feet to the fire? Conveniently, many in the White House press corps are in Hawaii. Now who would want to jeopardize a wonderful junket such as that by printing bad things about Obama. Sounds like the White House cleverly used taxpayer money to influence [I prefer bribe] another possible critic.
Thanks for the ping!
