The 912 Project-Nebraska Message Board › Welcome To Obamaworld: No Passport? No Problem!
December 29, 2009
Barack Obama's national security team waited two hours to tell him about that pesky Christmas Day terrorist attack on an airliner over Detroit.
They didn't want to interrupt his golf game during his Hawaiian vacation. He's only going to be there for ten days, after all, and the guy has got to be worn down. Shoving a $2.6 trillion nationalization of healthcare down the unwilling throats of the American people is hard work.
Perhaps they were afraid to admit to him that his Islamo-centric foreign policy isn't working.
He has flown to Saudi Arabia to kiss the ring of the Muslim Saudi King.
He has stood on foreign soil and excoriated America for freeing 25 million people in Iraq.
He has promoted a Muslim terrorist to the rank of Major and then admonished Americans to not stigmatize the man after he shot dead thirteen fellow soldiers in cold blood.
He has agreed to send eighty Yemeni Muslim terrorists home from Guantanamo Bay.
His diplomats have even tried to run down an Israeli boarder guard while trying to smuggle a Palestinian.
Yet despite all of these accommodations to Medieval Islam, Muslims still want to attack America. In fact, according to ABC News, two of the top four Al Qaeda leaders in Yemen were released from Gitmo after they promised not to attack us anymore.
That's so unfair!
Maybe the President's security team were embarrassed to tell him that the $50 billion Department of Homeland Security budget failed to prevent a known terrorist sympathizer, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, from boarding an American airliner.
He was on a list of 500,000 dangerous characters, but it's so difficult to sort through all of those names. Perhaps with another $50 billion someone at Homeland Security could ask around about a relational database.
A relational database…that 20th Century invention which allows us to retrieve names and classify them as "Good" or "Bad" so that a bureaucrat with a clipboard in Amsterdam might, for instance, deny a visa to a man whose father has warned the American Embassy in Nairobi that his son is a dangerous religious fanatic.
After finally hearing about the attack, the president waited three days before leaving the beach to grace the American people with a six minute statement, which included the immortal gem that all Americans must remain vigilant.
No questions were allowed from reporters who, let's face it, are much happier vacationing with this president in Hawaii than they were with that other guy in Waco. Not a peep of protest from them.
Three days with no statement. W contemplated for seven minutes and they made a documentary about it.
Obama did trot out Janet though. That would be Janet Napolitano, the Secretary of Homeland Security, who said that the system worked "just fine" after the attack, but that before the attack there might have been a problem. She was certain, however, that it wasn't part of a larger conspiracy.
Yet somehow that beacon of intelligence, The Sun of London, reported that this terrorist and twenty-five others have been training for months in Yemen to attack Western airliners.
Within hours, other newspapers discovered that Abdulmutallab had been barred from Britain because of his terrorist background (see also our editorial "Obama's Inexcusable Failure To Protect America From Terrorist Attack").
And then this bombshell…According to Kurt Haskell of Newport, Mich, who was a passenger on the flight from Amsterdam, Abdulmutallab didn't even have a passport! He was escorted to the gate by a man wearing a suit, which introduced him to the ticket agent as a refugee from Sudan and convinced the officials to let him on the plane.
Today, the foreign minister of Yemen announced that there are two hundred to three hundred trained terrorists in his country poised to attack western targets.
No conspiracy here, right Janet?
If your wife wants to take her lipstick on an airplane with her, six security guards want to frisk her.
If your grandmother is in a wheelchair, they have to pat her down.
If you're a U.S. Navy Seal who roughs up a known Islamic killer, they want to court marshal you.
If you're a known fascist, Islamic thug, they're afraid to ask for your passport.
That Janet Napolitano is Secretary of Homeland Security is a joke.
That Barack Hussein Obama is President of the United States is a clear and present danger.
Not ready for prime-time players. Rank amateurs. My grandson could do better and he's only 15 months old!
