WikiLeaks cables: Barack Obama is a bigger danger ( Bolton)
The Guardian ( UK ) ^ | Sunday 5 December 2010 20.00 GMT | John Bolton

Posted on 12/06/2010 8:12:58 PM PST by Candor7

WikiLeaks has yet again flooded the internet with thousands of classified American documents, this time state department cables. More troubling than WikiLeaks' latest revelation of US secrets, however, is the Obama administration's weak, wrong-headed and erratic response. Unfortunately, the administration has acted consistently with its demonstrated unwillingness to assert and defend US interests across a wide range of threats, such as Iran and North Korea, which, ironically, the leaked cables amply document........

.....All of this underscores the real problem. It is not WikiLeaks that ultimately imperils our national security, but the failing Obama administration, which ignores the nature and extent of threats we face, and which is too often unwilling to act to thwart them. While our economic difficulties have dominated the national debate for two years, national security will inevitably again come to the fore, as Americans see the full extent of the devastation left by Obama's policies. That shift cannot come too soon

Yes. The sooner we get rid of Obama and his cohorts the better.

This administration is unresponsive, is right.

Whether Obummer allows the release of documents or not, his administration reviewed and had the relevant parts redacted according to their concerns so the releasing of documents was no surprise to this administration.

Why isn’t Hillary on the chopping block? No repercussion for any US officials involved and their exposed actions along with their way of doing business? (tin-foil hat time)

This brings a total loss and lack of confidence in dealing with this US administration and its minions as they were instructed to collect gossip and usable evidence to influence agreements at a later date.

Why would any country want to deal with a bunch of backstabbers that go unpunished?

As far as criticism goes to even releasing these documents, people always want proof of inter-dealing but now it’s information overload with more to come esp. on banks.

Your elected officials at work appointing a bunch of losers, at best, to carry out policy.

Still waiting for that answer and question period after a news conference for excuses to who and wherefore.

Bolton is every bit as dangerous as Obama, a neocon of the highest order.

Once WikiLeaks turns its attention to the banks, rather than prosecuting them, the administration will likely herald Julian Assange as a hero for outing the evil capitalists.

0bama gets to go a party every other night, and on vacation every other week.

He doesn’t have time to actually...govern. Might interrupt his golf game.

I am fearful that Obama will continue on through the Wicked Gate without impeachment....
This is all deliberate, maliciously intended and purposeful in Obamas nefarious agenda of bringing down the west. Take down America, the leader, and the rest follows. Assange is just a little player like Rosa Brooks but cumulatively they have their effect. For Asssange? Obama eased his path. Much like Obama is easing the path for the OIC based UN to come into the US to hunt “War Criminals”.

Obama , culturally never was an American as he carries many chips on his shoulder and as we see from his old culture at many levels. He feels for his Kenyan identity, he feels for his muslim identity, and he feels his angst against white and America....

On top of it, Obama is a Muslim wanabe or Wahabe, I call him a ghazi.

“One of the prettiest sounds on earth” is the Muslim call to prayer at sunset.
Barack Hussein Obama as quoted by Nicholas D. Kristof in the New York Times - March 6, 2007

• The FIRST thing Obama did as a newly elected Illinois State Senator was to attempt to declare a Muslim holiday. Obama sponsored Bill SR0110 in the 90th General Assembly to declare November 1, 1997 to be Islamic Community Center Day. It did not pass.

All this brings on a interesting question... how can America have any struggle against Islam, or protect herself with the most powerful muslim in the world sitting in the White House?

Be wary, wary aware ....and wary, wary afraid...get prepared for more creeping sharia...more than what is coming out of the White House today

The article says the dept of Justice is looking into the leaks. So far they only seem to be looking for the guy who runs WikiLeaks.

Shouldn’t Justice and some Congressional committee be going after how these files got out, who was involved on both ends of the leak and why our secret files were so poorly guarded and who was supposed to guard the secrets? Some blame has to fall on the present administration.

That’s what you get when you have a POTUS who is a total enigma, who is allowed to hide his identity, and no congress critter who dares to get to the truth.

I’ve always thought that’s exactly why he had that air force one looking plane flown over NY, right after he took office...

What better symbol to use than that? But many have forgotten that horrid act, and as always the complicit media sure don’t talk about it..

Neocons, by definition, believe in my country winning any fight they get into. Obama’s mission is to make sure we lose as much as we can before he loses power, if ever. Radical Libertarians don’t care who loses what, as long as it isn’t them. I reject the cynicism of Strauss, but I’d rather have a neocon in the foxhole with me than either of the other two. Just sayin ...
