Oh My, what a shocker…..Obama fumbled again.
The anniversary of 9/11 draws near, the anniversary of the most cowardly act ever perpetrated on the United States and where was Obama?
I’m sure more information will come out about the attacks on the US embassy and consulate that took place on the 11thanniversary of 9/11 as well as the attacks and protests that have started since 9/11/2012; however one thing is certain, Obama fumbled it.
Obama missed every intelligence briefing for a week leading up to 9/11/2012. He even missed the one after because it conflicted with a meeting he had and then he had to ….. get ready for it…… rush off to another fundraiser. According to a white house spokesperson, he was completely up to date because he read the daily briefings. First off, briefing papers are just that, a brief summary of the day’s events and analysis. Briefs are not designed to get you up to speed on a subject. They are however, designed to bring points forward for further discussion.
Just days before the attacks in Egypt and Libya, Janet Napolitano, the head of the Dept of Homeland Security announced the threat of an attack on America was low on the anniversary of 9/11, yet just two days before 9/11/2012, the embassy in Egypt stated there was a viable threat to then and other embassies and consulates in the region and they had gotten their information from a very reliable source. What does Obama do, he dismisses the threat and embraces the announcement made by the DHS without further discussion.
Obama’s unwillingness to hold a 45 minute meeting cost the lives of 4 Americans and caused 4 families to lose a loved one. May our thoughts and prayers be with the families of those lost.
The press and the Obama administration is calling it unpatriotic to question his actions and decisions, yet is was Hillary Clinton who in 2008 who stated it was the right and the patriotic duty of all citizens to question the decisions made by their government. I guess that only applies when a republican is in the white house or seeking the white house as she, the rest of the Obama administration along with the press scolded Mitt Romney for his dead on accurate statement regarding the attacks.
Following the attacks, the administration stated these attacks were “random acts of violence”. According to eyewitnesses, these attacks were well coordinated military style attacks. In Libya, the attackers primary target was to take out the security detail. Once completed, they immediately went after the “safe area” where all the staff was to assemble to be transferred to safe houses. Once the attackers gained control of the premises, they immediately went to specific rooms and gathered important documents, computers and other items of national security interest. Does this sound like a flash mob upset over some movie that hurt their feelings?
Obama dropped the ball. Biden dropped the ball, Hillary Clinton dropped the ball, Janet Napolitano dropped the ball, Tom Donilon, the National Security Advisor dropped the ball, Leon Panetta, Sec. of Defense dropped the ball. They fumbled, American lives were lost and sensitive information is now in the hands of our enemies. Even when leading from behind, they still can’t handle the job.
