Obama to Visit CIA Headquarters
Wall Street Journal ^ | May 18, 2011 | Carol E. Lee

Posted on 05/18/2011 11:21:07 AM PDT by La Enchiladita

President Barack Obama will continue to tout the U.S. mission that led to the killing of Osama bin Laden with a visit Friday to Central Intelligence Agency headquarters in Langley, Va.

Mr. Obama will meet with intelligence officials to thank them for their efforts, “specifically for their excellent work in tracking down Osama bin Laden,” White House press secretary Jay Carney said Wednesday.

Mr. Carney said the president decided shortly after Mr. bin Laden’s death that he wanted to meet with intelligence officials at CIA headquarters.

“I actually happened to be in his presence when he said he wanted to do this, which was a while back in the wake of the successful bin Laden mission,” Mr. Carney told reporters traveling with the president. “So this was a presidential decision that he wanted to make this trip.”

He was warned nicely to stop and he just has to milk this more! I think that he is seriously desperate for funding and is desperate for publicity. Elmer Fudd could beat him.

I bet that the real purpose of this is to go into CIA headquarters and tell Ponetta to “never do an operation without my authorization again”.

Spare me. After the BO administration blabbed another huge data dump of our intelligence secrets and methods that ended up on the front page of the Wash Post today — Just to BO could prolong his Osama bin Laden “bounce.” He totally screws the CIA, again, and now wants to go out to Langley for tea and crumpets?

Good luck with that. You wouldn’t BELIEVE the security out there, seen and unseen, which has been installed since that Pakistani shot all those people by the gate back in the 90s.

Pretty desperate to make Zero seem presidential, aren't they?

He is lucky I am not the facility manager...

Obama... Obama who...?

What, he said he was coming here and now is missing...?

Let me check the sign in log... No one gets past our security...

Nope.

Screw off unless you sign in and have a known party to greet you here, now... Or we can peepound you and do a rather unpleasant rectal examination after we chain you to a table.

Seeya later.

His funding isn’t what he thought and he has to take PA and to win and the only way that happens is if he cheats again with ACORN and Moveon. So if the GOP does not man all voting places in PA they are giving the election away.

Isn’t it pathetic? “I was actually in his presence when he decided this, bla bla bla...”

Couldn’t he just call over there or e-mail or something?
Besides, SECRET operations require SECRET thanks.
Not that they can take a hint....

Staff writers Traitors Craig Whitlock and Greg Jaffe and staff researcher Julie Tate contributed to this report, aiding and abetting the enemy.

Our enemies are surely reading the traitors' reports with avidity.

Any chance we can get his wisked off on a rendition mission and have him water boarded to give up who provided the false birth certificates.

The media’s rosy participation in this, compared to what they did with every connection anyone kindly attempted between GWBush and the victims at Ground Zero is nite and day.

GWBush was President on September 1, 2001; but any action by the President or anyone else to place GWBush in the same visual or mental frame as the suffering victims at Ground Zero was not only verboten but always produced a media firestorm.

Obama goes to CIA Headquarters for one reason - to keep the death of Osama Bin Laden alive on a slow news day, on a news day when Obama has no good news to report; and the media warmly prostrates itself to him.

Disgusting.

“specifically for their excellent work in tracking down Osama bin Laden,” ...

Then he will immediately have them arrested and tried.

“I actually happened to be in his presence when he said he wanted to do this, which was a while back ....”

Carney completely failed at making this B/S sound legit.

They can’t, and refuse, to tell the truth about ANYTHING.

They don't dare push the "Birth Certicficate" too hard, the MSM has to carry that water for him.

So, this is the only reelection cow they have, and they're going to milk the teats right off it.
