Earth to ‘Barry From Washington’ …

In The American Jihad, The Enemy Among Us on 29/12/2009 at 08:24

It seems that events have been unfolding so rapidly over the Christmas holiday that I hope you’ll forgive me for throwing this blog together. I have been astounded at the ineptitude of the Obama Administration in dealing with the latest threat by the Islamic jihadists. I thought I had this guy figured out but now I am beginning to think he’s just incompetent.

The cavalier way, in which the President handled this latest attack, and the discovery that the British have a better handle on their national security, flabbergasted me this weekend. The president was out of touch with the American people for nearly 72 hours after the failed strike, leaving Robert Gibbs, a man whose stock with the press and the public is shaky at best, to fend off questions to the man himself.

It only gets worse. When the President finally did pry himself off the links to address the country, he referred to Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab as an isolated extremist, while Abdulmutallab warns, “I’m the first of many.” The Administration has serious problems in recognizing that we are at war with a dedicated enemy who will stop at nothing to spill innocent American blood, and, it would seem, they are unwilling to listen to productive criticism.

We are about to see another armed combatant treated as a common criminal, in disregard to over 200 years of precedent. I’ll go to the headlines now; I am simply too angry to write.

London Telegraph: Detroit Terror Attack: A Murderous Ideology Tolerated For Too Long – Telegraph View: Jihadist Islamism is comparable to Nazism in many respects. The British public realises this; so do the intelligence services.

Charles Krauthammer: 2009: The Year Of Living Fecklessly – On Tuesday, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad did not just reject President Obama’s latest feckless floating nuclear deadline. He spat on it, declaring that Iran “will continue resisting” until the United States has gotten rid of its 8,000 nuclear warheads.

Politico: Parties Risk It All On Health Care Reform – As health care legislation staggered erratically through Congress this year, something happened to the biggest domestic policy debate of a generation.

Reuters: Chavez Says Obama “Illusion” Over – Venezuela’s President Hugo Chavez said in a New Year’s message the “illusion” around President Barack Obama was over and rich nations had left the world on the verge of ecological disaster.

Daily Mail: China Executes British Drug Dealer – British man Akmal Shaikh was executed in China this morning, the Foreign Office has confirmed. The former taxi service manager, 53, had been convicted of smuggling heroin and the death sentence was carried out just after 4am today. He is believed to have been executed by firing squad and buried immediately.
