Now that the boy king can come off of the greens in Hawaii, he is being told what a poor job his CIA under career politician and Clintonista Leon Panetta did in protecting America in the first test of our new intelligencia.
Many expressed concern over Obama’s appointment of Ca. Democrat Panetta but were shouted down. It seems our concerns were valid, as we saw Christmas Day.
Showing his own incompetence to be CiC, Obama had no idea how poorly the CIA is performing under Panetta and after Speakerette Pelosi’s assault on the agency earlier this year, possibly demoralizing them and encouraging seasoned operatives to go elsewhere.
The New York Times tells us, “Obama Is Told of Signs That Should Have Grounded Plot,” as they point out The CIA under Panetta has known of a terrorist they named “The Nigerian” months ago.
We are also told that with the information provided to the CIA numerous times by Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab’s own father would have been more than enough to connect Abdulmutallab to “The Nigerian” and if nothing else, placed his name on the “no fly list” and kept off the NWA Flt 253 Christmas Day.
The Obama administration now says they are “increasingly confident” that Al Qaeda played a role in the thwarted attack, even though Al Qaeda claimed responsibility 2 days ago.
Obama told reporters from his luxury $4,000 a day vacation villa, “We need to learn from this episode and act quickly to fix the flaws in our system because our security is at stake and lives are at stake.”
Perhaps it would have been better that instead of crucifying the man Obama replaced, to have approached him and learned how he kept America safe for 7 years after the September 11, 2001 attacks.
Diligent efforts to rapidly dismantle and politicize the very policies that kept us free from attack now seems like a bad idea, as many expressed concern over.
Is it even possible for the very people who caused those “flaws in the system” to actually “fix them?”
Obama further says, “We’ve achieved much since 9/11 in terms of collecting information that relates to terrorists and potential terrorist attacks,” which we all know has been heavily opposed by Obama and the Democratic cartel every step of the way.
He added, “But it’s becoming clear that the system that has been in place for years now is not sufficiently up to date to take full advantage of the information we collect and the knowledge we have.”
It seemed to have worked pretty good for 7 years, before Obama got a hold of it.
Maybe with the creation of Obama’s new “Declassification Center,” we’ll see just how incompetent the Obama administration really is.
UPDATE: CIA rejects charge it failed to share bomb suspect intelligence
Sorry guys, you've already been marked as the designated fall guys for Obama.
