Obama’s national security address

In what has been described by the news media as a “major speech” on National Security, President Obama began by getting the name of his own Secretary of Defense wrong, calling him “Wiliam” Gates. Oops

But, then, the teleprompter came on, and the president was back on message.

Using his amazing powers of hindsight, President Obama decided that the national security policy of “the last eight years” was based on fear mongering, and not on foresight.

But, I’ll leave it to others to dissect his speech.

After listening to President Bush give many national security speeches at military bases, it was unusual, and a little unsettling to listen to Preznit Obama’s version of a national security address: a highly politicized address in front of a cheerleading crowd. It sounded at times like an ACORN rally. I half-expected the drones to break into a “yes we can” chant.

I’ll also say this. If anyone was expecting Obama to begin taking responsibility for his administration, they must be disappointed. I lost count of the number of times that Obama referred to “the last eight years,” and I’ll have to wait for the transcript to get a count. But, make no mistake, Obama blamed Bush for everything but the actual 9/11 attacks, although I’m confident that many in the audience not only believed that 9/11 was an inside job, they also continue to believe that George W. Bush is the devil incarnate.

In November of 2008, the American people elected a new president. We didn’t elect a savior.

Come down off your cross, Mr. Obama. This messiah act has worn very, very thin.

R.O.P Terror Plot Thwarted

May 21, 2009 in the NY Post:

Four homegrown Muslim terrorists on a mission from hell were arrested last night as they planted what they thought were high-powered plastic explosives at two Bronx synagogues, authorities said.

The men were also allegedly plotting to use a Stinger missile to shoot a military plane out of the sky in upstate New York immediately after the bombings. …

They planted what they thought were explosives in a parked car outside the house of worship.

One acted as a lookout, while the other three allegedly drove up the block to the Riverdale Jewish Center and planted two more bags of “explosives” in cars.

Unbeknownst to them, their explosives were duds — supplied by authorities who had been monitoring their plan for more than a year.

Cops swooped in and arrested them right after they allegedly planted the last of the phony bombs.

One of the suspects, James Cromitie, a k a Abdul Rahman, bragged that blowing up the synagogues would be a “piece of cake,” the feds said.

“I hate those motherf – – -ers, those f – – -ing Jewish bastards . . . I would like to get a synagogue,” Cromitie told an informant, according to a criminal complaint.

The alleged terrorists’ hatred also included the US military.

After bombing the temples, the men planned to split up and head to the New York Air National Guard Base at Stewart Airport in their hometown and shoot down a plane with a weapon they believed was a Stinger surface-to-air guided missile, sources said.

“They [the United States military] are killing Muslim brothers and sisters in Muslim countries, so if we kill them here [in the United States] with IEDs [improvised explosive devices] and Stingers, it is equal,” one of the busted men, Onta Williams, allegedly told the informant.

Also arrested was David “Daoud” Williams and Laguerre Payen, a k a Amin or Almondo.
