Blood on his hands: Obama Skipped All Daily Intelligence Briefings Since Sept. 5
rantpolitical.com ^

Posted on 09/14/2012 1:48:29 AM PDT by tsowellfan

According to the White House calendar, there is no public record of President Barack Obama attending his daily intelligence briefing–known as the Presidential Daily Brief (PDB)–in the week leading up to the attacks on the U.S. embassy in Cairo and the murder of U.S. Libyan Ambassador Chris Stevens and three American members of his staff...

This is criminal. If this were Bush the democrats would be calling for an impeachment. I doubt this man will ever step down. If he loses to Romney he will refuse to concede and make a speech saying his work is not yet done and he needs more time.

Why would Obama step down? He's in a lot of trouble with the forged documents and all the other things he has done in the ducty stack of crimes piled up on Boehner's desk. Besides, Obama knows John Boehner would do nothing if he just simply refuses to hand over power to Mitt Romney.

And worse he skipped them during the most vulnerable time of the year - the week of the September 11th anniversary.

That is very telling! We are nowhere near as safe now as we were under George W Bush. In fact, I think we’re more vulnerable now than we were on September 10th 2001. Much more so.

He knew about the planned attacks and miscalculated that the world would believe that this was all about some dumb movie.

He was right about our main stream media, but the rest of the world isn’t buying the story.

Yes. I don’t know why they (Bumber and Hilda) would do nothing though. Are they on suicude watch or what? The only thing I can figure is that they want to have the ME in chaos for the election. Americans getting killed will not raise poll numbers.

...”leading from behind”...the phrase the rats look up to....
translated: “if I ain’t making decisions,...you can’t blame me”, another rat coward, Carter,Clinton,Odungo. Meanwhile people die, incompetence gutless arrogance. His main concern, raising money for himself, spending money for himself, and wasting billions.
It’s Friday, watch for the late afternoon document dump and the spin on this story.

I think that is likely. I see two scenarios.

1) He had been informed exactly what would happen. He prepared for that day by simply "taking his eye off the ball" so that he could be "surprised" when the event went off as planned.

2) He knew that something, somewhere was likely to happen on any given 9/11. He prepared for that possibility by simply "taking his eye off the ball" so that he could avoid some blame if something happened.

I believe that a world in flames helps his re-election chances. I believe that he believes that too.

It seems to me that the "Theme" of the Obama foreign policy -- if it can be called that -- is that we are winding down the "War on Terror." Hasty withdraws from Iraq, and now Afghanistan, leaving the fruits of battlefield victories for others to gather. Relaxation of (some) TSA rules (while others are quietly expanded). And finally the dismantling of the anti-terror financial apparatus that was briefly effective at getting at the roots of the terror network.

Combine this with the Muslim 'outreach' template and what do you expect? If there's no WoT why do we need a Commander-in-Chief sitting in the cockpit every morning?

All of this is wrong, of course. The War on Terror was ill-conceived from the start. And Obama's policies are partly a reflection of the electorates discomfort with them. What should have been done after 9-11 was a straight-forward declaration of war against Al-Qaeda & Afghanistan. All military means would have theoretically been available to GWB for the duration. Perhaps this is why we no longer declare war in this country. Congress likes to write "Blank Checks" -- just not this kind.

The only theme I can see coming out of this White House is - if it’s bad for America it’s what I shall do.

I cannot think of one thing this man has done that has been for the good of this nation and bad for our enemies.

Perhaps Jarrett speaks the truth. Maybe Obama needs no intelligence briefs from the White House because he gets his intelligence briefs directly from the Muslim Brotherhood via Jarrett.

There is more and more evidence every day to suggest that Obama is working with and for the other side

...it would be on every front page for the next four weeks.
...there would be three questions during the debate about what gives the president a right to skip daily intelligent briefings.
...John Kerry would still be a dipwad.
Whoopie Goldberg and Oprah and Rosie would host a concert during prime-time with eighteen bands and thirty more celebrities to condemn the incompetent president.
...Chris Matthews and Bill Mahar would self-flaggelate for three days with tears streaming down their faces and a definite lack of thrilled legs.
...Algore would blame the hot summer on the deaths of the American consolate personnel.
...Hillary and Bill would go on a dinner date wihtout Huma and whoever Bill is currently boinking.
...ABC, CBS, NBC, and HBO would each crank out a special movie rendition of the events leading up to the massacre by Halloween.
...Congress would appoint seven special investigators to find out what happened.
...the elections would be suspended and the Democrats could stick whoever they wanted in the White House for the next twelve years.

Not only that it was the week of Sept. 11 - but B-HO was warned of the attacks on Sept. 4th. Soooooooo he didn’t attend a briefing after Sept. 5th. This tells me he knew the attacks were coming, and he welcomed them. Just more B-HO punishment for the U.S.!!!

And what about the ACAP writing on the embassy wall in Egypt? That is a slogan of our own OCCUPY people. What part did B-HO’s OWS freaks play in the attack?

You think maybe removing the support of Israel from the platform of convention may have been some promise Obama made to the Muslim Brotherhood in exchange that they do not embarrass him by turning on the US after we “liberated” Egypt and Libya?

And I’ll bet he was reluctent to have to put that back in the platform. I’m sure he was pressured by concerned democrats who feared losing the Jewish vote. Doing so would be breaking a promise to the Muslim Brotherhood.

Surely they are not happy about that (even if it were not a promise made to them).

I think it may have something to do with it. You know how the Muslims are ALWAYS trying to get us to diss Israel.

Obama invited the Muslim Brotherhood to the WH for a meeting next week. What’s he going to give them now?

Meanwhile he snubs Israel not just because he HATES Israel but also because his hands are tied. If if supports Israel he loses Egypt and Libya to Iran and that would make him look like a total failure.

That’s just my guess. I could be wrong.

——.”leading from behind”...the phrase the rats look up to....

I have a different take.

In the present, Obama did not make decisions because he was paralyzed with fear. He could not make decisions because any he made could result in political death. He is beholden to coalitions with cross purposes that will not allow him to cross them.

Since he has no leadership abilities at all and must rely on advisers for direction, he is screwed. He dithers and still dies

That's what I'm thinking too. He's using this to take out Hillary and she's making it easy for him. She's proving she's as screwed up as he is in foreign diplomacy. Someone in the Obama admin had to give that low level State department employee permission to put out that tweet. If Hillary didn't, maybe it was Valerie. Now, they can throw Hillary under the bus for stupidity.

I don't think Obama is stupid. He just doesn't care about Americans. They are pawns to be used while he and Michelle party and vacation on the taxpayer's dime.
