Obama Admin: The War On Terror Is 'Over' (Flashback to April 2012)
Breitbart.com ^ | April 23, 2012 | Ben Shapiro

Today, the National Journal reported that a senior State Department official has announced, “The war on terror is over.”

“Now that we have killed most of al Qaida,” the source said, “now that people have come to see legitimate means of expression, people who once might have gone into al Qaida see an opportunity for a legitimate Islamism.”

(snip)

In truth, Obama isn’t declaring an end to the war on terror – terrorism continues unabated each day in Egypt and the Palestinian territories and Iraq and Afghanistan and Sudan and Yemen and Syria and Lebanon and a dozen other hotspots around the globe. Obama is truly declaring an end to the war on Islamism. He has made his peace; he has surrendered. In doing so, he has condemned broad swaths of the world to darkness, and more immediately, he has condemned America to a defensive position in the world. Now there is no proactive America shaping the world to her own ends. Now there is only an atomistic world, a series of billiard balls, in which America waits to be struck before bouncing back.

To Obama, the war on Islamism may be over. For Islamists, the war on America is far from over.

Yes, the war is over; we gave up and we can expect more attacks. Bush kept them busy on their territory, now they are free to operate on ours.

AP: Washington. White Press Release on Boston Attack

“My fellow communists, liberals, progressives, socialists, fascists, anarchists, union thugs, and Chicagoland gang members, it is with a heavy heart and great sadness that I speak to you today from the Great White Hut. Sadness, not because of the loss of life and injuries suffered by Bostonians, but sadness because I had just jerked a 10 foot putt for a 12 on the 7th at Congressional when I was informed of the tragedy.

Upon hearing the catastrophic news from the only Secret Service agent who wasn’t hitting on the drink-cart girl, I broke down in tears and wept in the strong warm arms of my main ‘body man’ Reggie Love.’ We stayed like that for more than an hour until I composed myself.

I immediately contacted Eric Holder, the Attorney General Racist, and was told that the initial information from Boston indicated the attack was the work of the ultra-rightwing ARA - the Amish Republican Army - a heavily armed and extremely violent domestic terrorist group centered in Blue Balls, Pennsylvania.

I immediately instructed the Attorney Racist to lay siege to their compound. Heavily armed with AR-15s the Amish terrorists violently attacked our valiant forces led by Homeland Security Dyke-in-Chief Janet ‘Big Sis’ Napolitano. ‘Big Sis’ reports that the ARA compound was counter-attacked by artillery, 40 millions rounds of armor piercing high caliber ammunition and nuclear weapons. The ARA was completely destroyed.

Now that the guilty parties have been dealt with and crushed, I am free to return to Congressional and finish my round. In my absence I have ceded command of the armed forces to my Vice-President, ‘Crazy Joe Biden’. All Americans, except for bible-thumping, gun-toting Christian clingers should sleep easily tonight knowing that MY country is secure and in good hands.

The Moron-in-Chief said they were on the run. Sure they are, to the nearest Walmart and other places to buy cell phones, ball bearings and other things to make bombs with.

Obama can have followers of the muslim brotherhood to the WH March 25, 2013, but Americans aren’t allowed. It’s not the sequester that shut the tours down, it’s that obama needs privacy so we will not know who he is inviting into OUR house.

REALLY?

There are probablymore of those murderous, subhuman filth today, than there were 4yrs ago. 0scumbag&Co are helping to propagate them, worldwide, and especially here in the US. We have thousands of ‘sleepers’, ready-to-go, upon command. They are pouring across the Mexican border just to work in the fruit groves.

Best approach is to have them kill each other in their country. Second best is to kill them in their country. Absolute worst approach is to have them kill Americans in our country.

I'm somewhat troubled that someone hasn't stepped forward to take responsibility for this attack. I would think if it were an organized terror group, they might've done so by now.

This leads me to believe it might be some domestic group (or domestically planned). Is there any thought that this could be an attack that WILL be attributed to a right-wing, Tea Party, pro-2nd Amendment group? Could it become Obama's "Kristalnacht?"

Interesting theory, but I don’t see targeting the Boston Marathon as something that a right wing group would find attractive.

No, of course not. But if used in the way I described, it's not about who did it, or where they did it. It's about who gets blamed for what happened. The next week or two will be interesting.

One of Al Qaeda's hallmarks in the past was to never accept responsibility for its attacks. Remember that after 9/11, the organization did not do so, leading to the rise of the idiot 9/11 troofers, until THIS was captured and released:

Osama Bin Laden Admits Planning 9/11 in Meeting with Egyptian Terrorist

...and even then the Troofers claim that it is fake and that 9/11 was an inside job.
