People in the Obama administration notified news outlets that are spies inside the al Qaeda network were helping us target al Qaeda leaders with drones..Â In what appears to be an effort to show progress on the war on terror, the Obama administration has just told al Qaeda what methods are working for us – which means al Qaeda now knows what to look for to stop our progress:
U.S. and international intelligence officials say that improved recruitment of spies inside the al-Qaeda network, along with increased use of targeted airstrikes and enhanced assistance from cooperative governments, has significantly reduced the terrorist organization’s effectiveness.
Emphasis mine. What in the world are these people thinking!? The targeted air strikes need the spies to find the damn TARGETS! All the government assistance in the world is worthless if we don’t get TARGETS!
But now these blabber mouths have tipped off al Qaeda to look for our spies in their midst. I can pretty much assure these bungling fools that a good many of their spies (and probably others) are now dead, thanks to this news alert.
Addendum: I’ll say it again – idiots:
Those within the administration who have suggested limiting large-scale U.S. ground combat in Afghanistan, including Vice President Biden, have pointed to an improved counterterrorism effort as evidence that Obama’s principal objective — destroying al-Qaeda — can be achieved without an expanded troop presence.
Well, scratch that argument. With al Qaeda purging their ranks of newly announced spies Biden’s plan won’t work (it wouldn’t have anyway, but now the point is moot). Could this be another Big Biden Blunder?
