Spying on Icebergs Instead of Terrorists?

Obama Program Diverts Intelligence Assets to Climate Research


Washington, DC - As terrorists continue to infiltrate America, the Obama Administration is tasking some of our nation's most elite intelligence-gathering agencies to divert their resources to environmental scientists researching global warming.

Experts with The National Center for Public Policy Research are decrying this practice as a distraction from important counterterrorism duties.  They further question if it is a possible avenue to renew climate change subterfuge already plaguing some of these scientists.

"This is another example of President Obama not taking terrorism seriously," said Deneen Borelli, a fellow with the National Center's Project 21 black leadership network.  "Our enemies must be laughing at the Obama Administration's incompetence."

A January 5 article in the New York Times reported that the White House restarted a program in which scientists are obtaining classified intelligence data from the Central Intelligence Agency and National Reconnaissance Office.  Information from these secret government surveillance programs is being used to track climate change.

A similar program was discontinued by the Bush Administration in 2001.  Former vice president and current climate change entrepreneur Al Gore began lobbying for its renewal in 2008.  It now reportedly has the strong support of CIA Director Leon Panetta.

"Given the very real threat posed by terrorists, it is ridiculous and downright dangerous to divert any intelligence resources to monitoring polar ice," added Project 21's Deneen Borelli.  "Its said this won't hinder regular intelligence-gathering, but it's also clear that agencies can't yet share data and track a terrorism suspect who was identified by his own father.  It's unwise to further distract our intelligence network by forcing it to consult with scientists about icebergs, polar bears and sea lions.  The Obama Administration appears to be putting a left-wing political agenda before the safety and security of our nation."

Speaking on the involvement of Al Gore, Tom Borelli, Ph.D., director of the National Center's Free Enterprise Project, noted: "If anything, Al Gore is the real national security threat.  Gore's climate change fear mongering, which lines his own pockets with cash, has stoked a war against the fossil fuels so vital to our nation's economic prosperity and national security.  His self-serving agenda is stymieing domestic energy exploration and production efforts.  Now, he successfully lobbied to resurrect this diversion of our intelligence assets after the Bush Administration wisely ended it."

The claims of some scientists are already suspect after the Climategate scandal.  Tom Borelli pointed out: "We've already seen climate scientists discussing the idea of destroying raw data to preserve climate change models that may be seriously flawed, and then it turns out that very same sort of data was allegedly 'lost.'  How can we trust them to not behave similarly with CIA data - such as denying the proper peer review under the guise that the data is secret?  The real question is: who's going to be watching the scientists?"

The National Center for Public Policy Research is a non-partisan educational foundation based in Washington, DC. It receives less than one percent of its funding from corporate sources.

Clinton did this, too

Makes sense, icebergs are more of a threat to America than jihadis.

Obama is living in a fantasyland. As the nation is freezing he’s still a true believer in the global warming hoax. There’s no way this guy is going to win a second term. Almost every decision he makes is based on childish superstitions and beliefs whether it’s spending our way to financial recovery or investing in global air conditioners.

This is beyond dammed stupid!

Probably the most idiotic waste of national intelligence resources I’ve ever heard of in my life! This may be more than just idiocy. I’d almost question the sanity of anyone that would come up with such a crazy idea!

Thank God I don’t live in, go to major cities or other potential terrorist targets....

CIA directed in 1995 to seek Video Pirates Fox News Channel | 9/18/01 Posted on Tuesday, September 18, 2001 10:35:33 AM by MarketR This just in to Fox News....Jim Christiansen, former CIA operative just said on Fox News that the CIA was directed in 1995 to seek out Video Pirates instead of terrorists. He stated that during a top level meeting in which CIA and FBI were present, the station chief said that all efforts were being direscted toward Video Piracy instead of terrorism. The station chief, when questioned, stated that the directive came from the DCI. Who, of course, takes his orders from the President.

“President Obama secured $80 billion for renewable energy and green infrastructure”

Seems Wikipedia has once again sanitized the facts for Obama and Gore, but I posted this quote here long ago in this thread, and the spending would be verifiable;

Climategate: White House Involvement in Scandal Will Make It Harder for MSM to Ignore

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2394869/posts?q=1&;page=83#83

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Al_Gore

“Within one month of taking office President Obama secured $80 billion for renewable energy and green infrastructure

and then just two weeks ago the House of Representatives passed the Waxman-Markey Bill also known as the American Clean Energy and Security Act which for all of its flaws does put a price on carbon and is very much a step in the right direction.”

Tom Borelli has it exactly right. The damage the frontman for the greatest fraud in the history of humanity has done is incalculable. Al “No Controlling Legal Authority” Gore should be in prison. He is the ace of clubs in the high value deck of domestic enemies playing cards.

Great post and thread. Thanks to all posters/researchers/educators.
