After the USS Cole was attacked the Obama administration shelved the planned
prosecution of Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri, the alleged coordinator of the suicide
attack. Obama thought if he played nice with al Qaeda he could win their
friendship. I thought it was Bush they hated. Turns out it is American, not
Bush, that they hate.
@Rifleman: You mean the Clinton administration, right?
Americans just don't get the Middle East. It is hard to imangine a world
without choice. Why would anyone want to live in a world without choice? The
Middle East wants a Theorcracy-Sharia Law. Why does our government keep trying
to waste treasure and blood on a ideology that wants to rule as it did in the
6th century? The Middle East does not want a choice. They want to be told what
to do how to do and will not take independent thought seriously. Americans
don't get that. If you look at all the mobs-they are comprised of men with
cell phones. What a joke. A western cell phone. Let them live in the 6th
century. Take away all the aid and modern day awful western products. Iran,
does the Koran say to build a Nuclear device? That is Western technology. What
can the Middle East do besides destroy and blame the West for what they
themselves can not do. No jobs, no education, no free thought and horrible
treatment of the mothers of their children. You go Middle East. Self implode!
Diplotmats on alert?What about our own President? Is he on alert
for our nation or is he only concerned about winning an election? Diplomats of their intelligence staffs already and I am sure the alert was out
there in each of their areas of responsibility for the past 11 years. With
terrorists, you don't know where they are going to strike. We learned that
countries are not much different after the Japanese had told our diplomats and
President that we had nothing to worry about. That is until, the 7th of
December in 1941 when the Pearl Harbor Sunday became a nightmare for us and
brought us into Germany and Japanese wars. Is the cycle coming back
again? The Conservation Corps of the 1930s, however, good and great for our
country, did not stop us from getting into World War II. We had the League of
Nations and that didn't stop that war, either.Where are we goin
in this world? Obama has brought change but not the hoped change the rest of us
wanted. His advisors and cabinet members don't ring in solidarity for our
nation when we need that. What is our purpose?
The Egyptian newspapers El Fagr warned of attacks in advance and their warnings
were reported on US websites on September 10. So how is it that Obama claims
the attacks were spontaneous with no advance warning?
President Obama just needs to mind the store.You lose ratings by not
doing the constitutional duties. As a Constitutional law person he should know
what it entails. He should visit with the leaders of the various countries
instead of spending time on late night talk shows to get attention and provide
humor for us. We hire a President to give full attention to the
country through the various agencies, departments, cabinet members and the
people.As the first President with a vast number of Czars without
assigned duties but getting paid $179,000 plus entitlements, he has expanded his
span of control to too many people. With the election coming and his Chicago
group taking a lot of his attention, time and energy besides road trips for
non-campaign vouchered trips, he doesn't have much time to perform his
Constitutional duties.We have a President that is overwhelmed but
will not admit it.
