Skip to comments.WH: Some Critics 'Serving the Goals of al Qaeda'
Posted on 02/09/2010 5:59:37 AM PST by GeorgiaDawg32
In an oped in USA Today, John Brennan -- Assistant to the President and Deputy National Security Advisor for Homeland Security and Counterterrorism -- responds to critics of the Obama administration's counterterrorism policies by saying "Politically motivated criticism and unfounded fear-mongering only serve the goals of al-Qaeda."
Brennan writes that, "Terrorists are not 100-feet tall. Nor do they deserve the abject fear they seek to instill."
In the oped, titled "'We need no lectures': Administration disrupts terrorists plots, takes fight to them abroad," Brennan writes that politics "should never get in the way of national security. But too many in Washington are now misrepresenting the facts to score political points, instead of coming together to keep us safe."

What nerve. Coming from those who undermined President Bush from day one.
STFU. That's only true when pro-US people are running the show.
Does that mean for the past two year the DNC supported al qaeda?
Translation: Our inept naive terrorist strategy designed for political gain is getting our butt kicked politically.
So, is he yelling at the elected Republicans? Or is yelling at the cable MSM who keep running stories on the Christmas Hot Pants Bomber? The MSM is running lots of stories, many sensationalistic, in some vain attempt to increase ratings, they don't care about terrorists and/or future terror attacks either.
Of course, as governsleastgovernsbest pointed out, the fact that the Administration leaked that the panty bomber was cooperating is itself a serious breach of national security and reduces the value of the info...
They could use a lecture on the Constitution and Bill of Rights.
the value of the info was not only reduced, but I betcha eliminated 10 seconds after the dude failed to blow up the plane.
chasing leads he gives now is akin to a dog and its tail.
Ding ding ding. The winner!

Nice of them to prove her right.
Exactly. I posted this on twitter this morning saying that apparently he has zero sense of irony...
BTW, Obama’s allies like Jodie Evans serve the goals of al Qaeda, literally.
You may not like it but... the buck now stops with you. If your team doesn't match Bush's record it will be your fault not his. Recognize your responsibility and quit whining about real world politics.
As the old Gunny says...
“Lead, follow, or get the hell out of the way!”
Superbam will save us! Just ask him and he’ll tell you so.
“Brennan writes that, “Terrorists are not 100-feet tall. Nor do they deserve the abject fear they seek to instill.”
As long as some other poor slob is doing the dieing right, John?
I’d like to see McCain come out today with a statement on this ripping these guys to shreds. Sticking up for Bush’s WOT policies is about the only thing he’s good for, so this would be a good time for him to come out swinging on this remark.
what ironic, moronic incompetents we have in the barrak hussein nobama White House. jeeesh!
