'We did not know': 9 times the Obama administration was blindsided
FOX News ^ | June 19, 2014

Posted on 06/21/2014 4:38:48 AM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer

The unfolding sectarian violence in Iraq is just the latest crisis where the Obama administration seemingly has been caught off guard. From the Veterans Affairs scandal to Russia's swift annexation of Crimea, news of the world somehow keeps taking the commander-in-chief and his team by surprise.

The following is a refresher of major domestic and foreign policy developments that, apparently, were news to the White House.

1. Islamist militants gaining in Iraq.

2. Russia's intervention in Ukraine.

3. NSA spying on foreign leaders.

4. VA waiting list scandal.

5. IRS targeting scandal.

6. HealthCare.gov failing.

7. DOJ obtaining AP phone records.

8. Fast and Furious scandal.

9. Air Force One flyover in Manhattan.

The White House did not know because the media did not tell him. The media did not know because there was no ideological propaganda value in covering anything with respect to Iraq. The Iraq-as-disaster meme went moot when Bush left office.

Other than blaming everything and anything on Bush when the need arose, there was no more need to parade IEDs, suicide bombings, uprisings and the like before the American public. Obama was in charge so all is bright.

Blindsided? Its called plausible deniability when discovered. These are merely examples of just some of the vile Obama policies that have seen some light. Most of the intentional actions that are decaying America are continuing unseen. It would take historians and archivists years just to document and uncover what has happened in the State Department alone. If Republicans ever regain executive power, the document shredding and computer purges will be unprecedented.

"crypto-Moslem"? Are you sure about that?

Ask a moslem friend or anyone from the middle east what they think. Is he a moslem or not? I don't think there is anything "crypto" about it.

Before Obama was elected the first time, an immigrant from Malaysia asked my sister, “What is wrong with your people? Don’t they know he’s a muslim?”

The rest of the world knows he’s a muslim. We are the only people who deny his Islamism.

In many ways, it's not surprising these news items and much of everything this administration does are mystery to the Obama administration...

Almost all of Obama inner circle and most of his top level political appointments are ideologically driven rather than reality based: they think "policy" supersedes reality because they live in ideological bubble...where their policy is obviously superior to the actual facts on the ground, because their policies can never be wrong...

After all, they thought it was correct so it MUST be...

Because of their massive arrogance they cannot see the forest for the tress...

If the administration is that ignorant they have no business working for us.

If I had employees that dumb, they would be looking for another job.

HealthCare.gov failing. 7. DOJ obtaining AP phone records. 8. Fast and Furious scandal. 9. Air Force One flyover in Manhattan.

ABC, NBC, CNN and MSNBC didn't catch any of these either...
