Skip to comments.The Doomsday Dilemma (O not briefed for months on nukes!!!)
Posted on 04/07/2010 7:47:56 AM PDT by PghBaldy
...According to a knowledgeable source who would not be identified discussing sensitive national-security matters, President Obama wasn't briefed on the U.S. nuclear-strike plan against Russia and China until some months after he had taken office. "He thought it was insane," says the source. (The reason for the delay is unclear; the White House did not respond to repeated inquiries.)...

Even our national security folks know the enemy has infiltrated the White House.
So ... should we feel better or worse that Obama’s finger isn’t (and never was) on the red button?
The Obamaloon thought a plan was “insane”?
Has that idiot looked in the mirror lately?
He’s never encountered a difficult idea in his life - and wouldn’t know what to do if he did.
He is the DEFINITION of a University marshmallow major.
He wouldn’t know what to do with the information if they gave it to him.
Except pass it on to his handlers like any mole would.
Last I checked, we haven’t had a detonation since Japan in 1945, so the insane plan has worked out well for about 65 years.
O. doesn’t wear briefs, he wears Spanx.
Oh don’t you see? Now the Chi-coms won’t target our cities....
That’s why he wasn’t worried about a 3 a.m. call...
November can’t get here soon enough.
I don't care what an “informed” source leaks to the press, for whatever self serving purpose this false story has for obama.
Every US President is fully briefed and fully capable of exercising the actions needed as CinC in case of general war- immediately upon inauguration. His top level intelligence briefings began immediately after the Nov coup/election, to prepare him.
obama knew ( at least, he was briefed) on that funny looking briefcase (aka “football”) carried by his always present military aide.
Now, is obama smart enough to understand and to retain and to RESPECT what he was briefed?
Is he stupid and arrogant enough to blow off what he was briefed about our nuclear posture and his responsibilities, because he figured he'd just vote “present” until he got around to ordering people to change everything in that briefing?
Being a Natural Born Citizen might have made a difference, but his loyalties don't lie here.
he is really really hoping that no tough decisions come his way. unfortunately, for us, dear reader will get his chance. And he’s not up to it. not even close.
And does this simple minded communists Muslim turd does not think that Russia and China does not have strike plans against us? Damn this fool.
The problem is in this case his new plan is nothing short of TREASON!
Maybe he found out the military had targeted the White House?
If the time comes, he’ll be removed. There are more than enough patriots to do it. No way we’ll commit national suicide against the Chinese and Russians (we’ll let Congress do it slowly, and legally, through burdensome laws against business).
Given the outcome perhaps he shouldn’t be briefed on anything important. Did you notice how NewsWeak tried to give him cover by invoking republican presidents who also wanted nuke disarmament? They failed to mention those past presidents and O aren’t even in the same intellectual universe.
Its not surprising he wasn’t briefed. If they didn’t bother to give him some cover for the simple question ‘Who is your favorite White Sox player?’ then why would anyone expect he could answer questions on weightier subjects. LOL, it gives the distinct impression he’s WAY out of the loop and in real life he’s not so bright.
Ok ... his posture on our nuclear policy, and what he will do or not do, is beginning to truly skirt the boundaries of the “T” word. Any president who would not act to defend the USA in time of attack has violated not only his oath of office, he is giving aid and comfort to the enemy.
“President Obama wasn’t briefed on the U.S. nuclear-strike plan against Russia and China until some months after he had taken office.”
What’s newsworthy about that? He’s forty-something and has no knowledge of economics, either.
Obama may be the human version of SKY-NET.
The red buttons are probably inert.
UH...it’s ABOVE his pay grade.
For all of the constant constraints on GOP presidents, this monkey sure seems to get a pass by just about everyone who is SUPPOSED to constrain the dictatorial powers of the POTUS.
I knew what the SIOP was when I was in college in the 1980s. I knew what counterforce and countervalue targets were. Nuclear policy and arms control were popular political science topics in the 1980s.
Obama more and more seems fake. He is not smart (remember the amazingly stupid car insurance anecdote at Blair House), and he has little knowledge or interest in the very topics we are told he is knowledgeable and interested in.
The Army needs to step in and secure the White House until President Biden can be sworn in (stop laughing everyone... at least Biden is an American)
Call forwarding to Ayers.
The knucklehead probably spent the first few months combing the WH in his golden dishdasha looking for a “football” anyhow....
I don't know about *ordered* but I recall the story of Clinton's aide with the football having to walk on the streets of D.C., tote it back to the White House, as he was left out of the motorcade. Someone else may be able to locate the story, provide better details, I'm relying on memory, Rush telling the story that day.
It’s above his paygrade.
With his past association with Bill Ayers, he probably wouldn’t pass a security clearance to WORK in the White House.
I believe you are correct. The source is one of dubious nature, or rather the published source is. Newsweak.
he would ask his teleprompter what to think.
Ok-some people think this is not true. Assume that is so. WHY would the WH want this story out there then? They have not denied it to Newsweek, supposedly.
I would call it negligent. And under the UCMJ he could be prosecuted.
His lousy agreement with Russia isn’t flying (Russia can back out any time) so he has come up with this horsesh*t as a justification to do what he did (enter into the agreement). He will use it to also make a similarly worthless agreement with the Chicoms.
but you will never hear him be asked about it or any type of spontaneous response because like all dictators he has refused to give public press conferences he only deals with pre-staged sit downs where he has reviewed the questions up front. Pravda happily goes along welcome to the United Socialist States of America USSA.
I worry about the Communist-in-Chief being conveniently out of the country with his family when an attack on the US occurs...
Remember when Clinton lost his launch authorization code card for 5 months?
The deaths perpetrated by rogue governments across the planet during the 20th Century, may look small when compared to what may lay ahead.
And Il Douche’ is facilitating the events, if someone is inclined to take advantage of it.
Fewer weapons make the world more dangerous. When we have few enough weapons that an enemy can wipe out our arsenal in a first strike then nuclear war becomes winnable. Our arsenal must be large enough that an enemy has to fear the repercussion of an attack.
A couple of previous Dem presidents left it behind to go on booty calls
Not saying who.
"Jimmah, you rapscallion"
The KGB leader in the Kremlin must get a kick every time Obama speaks about nuclear disarmament.
The Kremlin wrote the arms reduction treaty Obama just signed. He was too lazy to work on it himself, so he simply voted ‘present’ and allowed Russia to formulate our disarmament policy for us.
