Live Thread: Barack Obama to Speak on the State of the Terrorism Sham Wow (4:30 P.M. EST 1/07/10)

He's tanned, he's rested and he's back in love with the cameras!

For the third day in a row since returning from his Christmas/New Year's vacation, Barack 'can't I just eat my waffles' Obama is appearing before the cameras to speak to the American people.

Today at 3 p.m., the Finger-Pointer-in-Chief will point his finger at everyone but himself yet again to tell the American people the latest 'Sham Wow' tale of what he is doing to keep Americans safe from terrorists.

Since the Christmas Day terrorist attack by al Qaeda on Northwest Airlines Flight 253 over Detroit, the Obama administration has tried out various pitches by various pitchmen.

Janet Napolitano and Robert Gibbs said "the sysytem worked."

That didn't work so Obama said the attack was by "an isolated extremist."

That didn't work so Obama said it was 'catastrophic failure' of the Bush administration.

That didn't work so John Brennan said there was "no smoking gun" the Obama administration had to stop the attack.

That didn't work so Obama said the intelligence community screwed up.

That didn't work so Jim Jones said yesterday that the nation will be "shocked" by what is in the report to be delivered by Obama today.

Tune in at 4:30 p.m. for the latest installment of Barack Obama's State of the Terrorism Sham Wow.

Air marshals rush to stop ‘dozens’ of suicide attacks

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2422928/posts

… Obama has ordered a “surge” of federal air marshals to be in place by Feb.1 in what officials said was a “race against time,” with other suicide bombers believed to be in the terrorist pipeline, although there is no specific imminent threat, federal officials told ABC News.

Under a preliminary plan, the officials said the already existing federal air marshal force of more than 3,200 personnel would be deployed almost exclusively to overseas flights flown by U.S. carriers.

It's politically inconvenient to talk about healthcare right now. So zer0 is breaking his word on televising the debate.

Per FOX from Major Garrett- they’re delaying this because there is a disagreement about what to keep classified and what NOT to keep classified.

What a confidence builder.

Just incredible.

Just what is it that they're afraid of saying... that they can't really blame it on Bush after all? That the buck stops with the CURRENT president? That forcing national security operatives to be PC is actually a bad idea?

They can't even pass the buck without looking like disorganized amateurs.

My shocker prediction:

Fort Hood and Flight 253 were related and part of a wider ongoing terrorist operation.
