VP candidate Joe Biden once predicted President Obama would be tested on national security and would fail. Today is the day VP Biden predicted would come.Â Today President Obama came out to publicly address the nearly successful Christmas Day Massacre aboard a Northwest Airline flight into Detroit Michigan.
It has only been one day since President Obama’s totally incompetent and incoherent Secretary of Homeland Defense claimed on all the major talk shows that the ‘system worked’ like clockwork. It has been only hours since his incompetent and incoherent Secretary of Homeland Security had to admit she only meant things worked after a terrorist bomber with known ties to al Qaeda ignited a bomb on a commercial airline. A disturbingly sophisticated, powerful and stealthy bombÂ which the terrorist travelled to Yemen to obtain from al Qaeda. A man who was banned from entering the UK and whose father tried to alert the Obama administration that his son was a deadly menace.
After the administration admitted all that part of the system had not worked, the President dug his hole much deeper still.
In his speech he failed to convey the seriousness of the threat so obvious to every man, woman and child in the country. Instead of being more forceful about the threat, he instead played terrorist defense attorney. No one missed the gross error and naivetÃ© exposed by this statements:
This incident, like several that have preceded it, demonstrates that an alert and courageous citizenry are far more resilient than an isolated extremist.”
This is not ‘an isolated extremist’ operating on his own. He was provided a sophisticated stealth bomb by al Qaeda terrorists in Yemen. A device that should have killed almost 300 people over Detroit. A bomb technology that doesn’t come from a garage or building supply store. A technology that will not fail the next time it is tried.
The terrorist was assisted in getting onto the plane and was provided the cash to purchase the ticket (one way, no baggage). He was not alone. Granted, it required denial and incompetence on our part to leave an opening, but the man was not ‘isolated’.
As Steve Hayes said on Fox News Special Report tonight, this is more what President Obama wishes this was all about, not the reality of our situation. Those who aided the terrorist come from a terrorist group lead by former GITMO detainees. It is likely the Imam who siren song called him to be a suicide bomber is the same who tipped Major Nidal Hasan into massacring Americans at Ft Hood earlier this year. This is all bad news for the administration, who would clearly prefer this was an isolated extremist.
Steve Hayes alluded to the Biden prediction of a failed test of leadership and competence. He reminded everyone that this is the first time Democrats have had to lead in the face of Islamo Terrorists since Jimmy Carter. It all began with their ignorant attempt to pretend there is no ‘war on terrorism’ – never uttering the words that shall not be uttered. In hindsight this foolishness just emphasizes how badly prepared for this test the DC liberals are.
President Obama has given this ‘alleged’ bomber full rights under the constitution. He is now under arrest. Therefore he is now innocent until proven guilty – even though he admits to being supported by, armed by and a follower of al Qaeda in Yemen. Instead of finding out how many other human ticking time bombs are out there with this kind of bomb (which will not be detecting on any other form of mass transportation, is cheap and will be made reliable) Obama plays into the terrorists highest hopes. He provides them legal cover.
The terrorist hoped a change in administration would expose America to renewed attacks.
It seems the terrorists idea of Hope & Change with the Obama administration are coming to fruition. Just as Obama just sealed his fate as another one term liberal disaster as President. No one is going to put the safety of their family in the hands of these Keystone Kops. If you miss these danger signs, you are to blinded by ideology to see the threats heading our way.
Sometimes you can feel when a tipping point has been breached. Watching Obama’s performance tonight was clearly one of those moments.
