Only days before President Obama revealed that his worst fear was a nuclear terror attack on Manhattan, a nearly blind guard was caught sleeping on the job at the Freedom Tower — where he was the building’s first line of defense.

In a shocking cellphone photo obtained exclusively by The Post, Abdul Basher, 65, is wearing shades and lying almost completely flat in a chair in the No. 1 terror target’s south lobby, where he was the only guard stationed, sources said.

Come on this must be the Onion right? A guy named Abdul in charge of guarding the Freedom Towers and he is sleeping? The only thing worse is his last name would have been Hussein.

Obama’s Aunt Zeituni Onyango should apply.

OK, I dislike the Communist in chief, but linking Obama to a sleeping guard at WTC is pushing it.

Abdul Basher...? We might be lucky he was sleeping and blind.

We have become completely stupid in our rush to show Muslims how much we love them.

Sleeping with one eye open is fine as long as you are not blind in the eye you have open...

Abdul? This is more than ridiculous. It’s a criminal act by the Port Authority.

Stick a fork in the USA. We now choose, out of left-wing orthodoxy, members of enemy groups to guard our most treasured sites.

first of all, why is a 65yo standing guard, not that I’m age conscious, but let’s get real - who’s this guy gunna tackle? a toddler? Second of all, what the hell is wrong with this guy’s supervisor who assigns a guy about to go on disability, and, who has no effective vision, to this job in the first place? oh wait.

Union, half blind and possibly Muslim. Perfect for security. Maybe send him to the border?

Nothing wrong here. It’s simply a union rent-a-cop doing what union employees do....as little as possible.

Sleeping on the job is one of the most sought after benefits of union employment.

...and to think they did no better with Abdul after they fired this security guy for sleeping on the job.

What next, a neo-Nazi guard at the holocaust museum named Adolph Hilter?

Maybe he’s related to the (fully) blind Sheik who tried to blow up the original WTC. That would make more sense as an affirmative action hire for Guard Duty.

Optics. Just as the TSA and airports manages to hire exclusively Muslims and black Muslims to keep up the illusion of safety and diversity the WTC people will make sure everyone from the sleeping blind guard, the janitors, the groundskeepers will all be adorned with muslim garb and have lots of melanin.

But really? There were no better options than poor ol’ Abdul?
