As we go about our business today and remember the horrific scene of 9-11-01, our current administration is hijacking the purpose for doing so. Turning a day of collective grief, and resolve, into a day of performing service for other people, the Obama administration has determined for us the time has passed for grieving. Why is that? Why is he so eager to move away from the worst national attack on our soil and loss of life in the US in the last 50 years? Whey have we been directed away from saying "terrorism, terrorists, Islamic jihad, islamic extremism" or any form thereof by our director of Homeland securtiy? Why the expeditious movement away from the war on terror? Why no mention of those taboo words in the main stream media?
In the last 8 years the Bush Administration kept us safe, and that was their utmost goal. Today, the Obama administration has made it quite clear to Muslims around the world, we were to blame for 9/11; Islam is a religion of peace and the hijackers were just an aberration, not representative of the Muslim community as a whole. This he did while he made his apology tour this spring. In an act of repentance, he has allowed Eric Holder to go after the people who kept us safe in the last 8 years. He has made the US less safe as he as he paints a huge red bull's eye on our country. He is the US equivalent of Neville Chamberlain.
It is not a matter of "if" we will be attacked again, but "when." This administration needs to understand that the Islamic extremists are not all that extreme, but really mainstream and indicative of the Islamic culture and teachings of the Koran. Rather than trusting the words of Islamic leaders, they need to understand that they have been victims taqiyya, or lying to achieve a goal. In Islam taqiyya against the unbelievers is regarded as a virtue and a religious duty. As a student of Muslim studies in Indonesia, you would think that Mr. Obama would recognize the use of taqiyya. If he does not he is either stupid, or just waiting for the next 9/11 so that the crisis does not go to waste. Either way, I don't trust this Administration with our national security.
I don't trust them to not sell out the US while appeasing the Muslim world. I don't trust our President, his advisers, nor any of his foreign affairs staff, including the Secretary of State, when the interests of terrorists are considered above those of the American citizen. When terrorists in Guantanamo Bay are given more rights and represented by lawyers from the ACLU John Adams project, I don't trust any of them. When CIA agents have to have their lawyers on speed dial, I do not trust these people. When they want us to forget about 19 hijackers whose stated goal was to kill between 50,000 and 100,000 people, but settled for 3000, I can not, I WILL not trust them with keeping our country safe.
