Obama Lies to America Again About al Qaeda

At a campaign event today in Wisconsin, President Obama once again misled the country about the status of the terrorist group al Qaeda.

"Al Qaeda has been decimated," he said to the crowd.

This statement is simply not true.

Recently, "al Qaeda is on the run" was dropped from Obama's campaign trail stump speeches due to the fallout over the 9/11 attack in Benghazi which was carried out by al Qaeda terrorists. That move by the campaign doesn't change the fact that al Qaeda has not been "decimated" and is not "on the run" as President Obama suggested to the American people for months.

One could think he is a real dope for even bringing up the subject.

"Al Qaeda has been decimated," he said to the crowd.

"Decimated" denotes a loss of 10%.

MISSION ACCOMPLISHED speech to the United Nations, September 2011.

What a difference a year makes.

In the months that followed, the will of the coalition proved unbreakable, and the will of the Libyan people could not be denied. Forty-two years of tyranny was ended in six months. From Tripoli to Misurata to Benghazi — today, Libya is free. Yesterday, the leaders of a new Libya took their rightful place beside us, and this week, the United States is reopening our embassy in Tripoli.

As we learned from the Slick Willie years, it all depends on the meaning of the word “decimate.”
1. To destroy or kill a large part of (a group); or,
2. To select by lot and kill every tenth man.

I’m guessing they killed ten goldbricks out of a hundred, as designated by al-Quaida, leaving 90 fire-eating, death-loving, goat-humping moo-slimes.

What if nothing comes of this Benghazi deal.

And what if under the current 4 years we get another 2, 3, 5 “Benghazi” type attacks and the bodies pile up, God forbid.

What will the Administration do?

What will the Media do?

This word, which comes from Latin, originally referred to the slaughtering of one in ten soldiers, a practice of the army of Ancient Rome. Literally, they would stand their own soldiers in a line and kill one in ten to demonstrate that they would have to fight or die.

"I thought it was more like 50%."

The word comes from a punishment given to Roman legions that had shown cowardice in battle. One out of every ten soldiers were beaten to death by their fellow soldiers.

Three questions for Benghazi-Coward Obama:

1.) Are you HIDING INFORMATION from the US Congress about the Benghazi Massacre?

2.) Have you been LYING to the US Congress, The Media, or the American Public about the Benghazi Massacre?

3.) Were you, as Commander in Chief, GROSSLY NEGLIGENT about your responsibilities to protect and assist those four Americans who subsequently were murdered in the Benghazi Massacre?

Why don’t we just storm the White House and drag this lying sack ‘o’ shit by his ass and be done with him? Does anyone think this asshole is going to change for the better in any way, shape or form in the next four years? Never in my life as an American did I ever think any US president was out to screw me, my family and my country but that’s the feeling I get from this son of a bitch. This bastard means to kill us all. If he doesn’t give a rats whisker that a US ambassador and four Navy Seals were killed, why would he give a crap if you or I or someone of our loved ones were trapped on a hijacked airliner held hostage on a runway in some Third World shithole or one about to be slammed into a building? I’m telling you, Obama not only hates America, he hates Americans.

“Hey Prez, elections over ! Get some freaking work done !”

Psst ....Wrong thing to say. How about this: “You’re looking tired, Mr President. Take some time off. Great belly dancers in Gaza City.”
