If the shoe fits, wear it… and Obama is wearing out shoe leather on this one. In an article I wrote on Feb.17 (America’s War on Terror…Obama’s War on America), I said that it was time to ask, “Hey Obama, who’s side are you on?”. Suffice to say, there are a lot more questions about Obama’s motivations than answers.
As a Commander-in-Chief, it’s readily apparent that he is waffling and tentative at best, even making allowances for his lack of executive or command experience. His apologists are quick to point to his great intellect and thoughtfulness. I haven’t noticed any great intellectual horsepower there. I have noticed an awful lot of people running interference for him while trying to convince us of his genius.
Obama’s record of ignoring, obfuscating, covering up or lying about Islamo-fascist activities in this country goes back quite a way. Obama’s connection to CAIR (Council on American Islamic Relations) and to the Nation of Islam alone would prevent him from getting a federal security clearance. The number of connections to people with confirmed militant Islamo-fascist contacts is astounding, and in the chaos of the Obama administration’s efforts at dismantling our economy and our society have all but been forgotten.
Starting with George Bush cowardly avoiding saying what was only obvious to the rest of us after 9/11 by referring to Islam as “a religion of peace”, his government’s bi-polar war on terror, fighting an armed conflict in the middle east while simultaneously trying to convince Americans that the tens of thousands of muslims in our midst were as innocent as lambs and all solid patriots (pay no attention to the man behind the curtain), despite the fact that the very tenants of this benighted religion demands of its adherents that they wage war on the infidel, Obama has done nothing to further the war on terror and everything to retard its prosecution.
He would have done nothing about Iraq, except for the fact that we were already there, and in fact opposed the troop surge which proved to be the winning strategy there. He would most certainly have done nothing about Afghanistan either, except for the fact that he had shot his mouth off about it during the campaign and was then trapped into acting on it. He then decided not to proceed by dragging his feet for several months on giving his commanders the resources they required to complete the mission.
Obama’s pro-Islamist attitude has permeated a military already rife with political correctness, especially at the command level. Such machinations resulted in the cover up of the Fort Hood shootings and the apparent cover up of the Fort Jackson poisoning investigation.
Obama has also further weakened an already overwhelmed Border Patrol Service by reducing funding and reducing the number of agents working our southern border by 150.
Obama’s assault on our NASA space program is another mission-critical purposeful attack on our national security. The Chinese and Russians will be quick to militarize space. We would have no defense from such an assault except by being there.
Obama has much, very much to answer for.
