Take a good look at the picture above. It's a picture of an indignant terrorist sympathizer who's just been dragged off the golf course to read a prepared statement about a subject that he has no interest in -- terrorism.
As far as US president Barack Obama is concerned, there is no war on terror. He made sure of that when he struck those very words from his administration's vernacular.
Yesterday, Obama drew the ire of the NY Daily News and former VP Dick Cheney when he referred to Christmas Day terrorist bomber Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab as an "isolated extremist" -- despite the fact that al Qaeda supplied the bomb materials and instructions to Umar.
Meaning Umar was not working alone as Obama so blindingly suggests.
Obama has come under attack this week by the mainstream media for pretending we are not at war with terrorists. Why should Obama admit we are at war with terrorists when it's obvious that he sympathizes with them?
In an interview with Politico.com, Cheney said:
“As I’ve watched the events of the last few days it is clear once again that President Obama is trying to pretend we are not at war. He seems to think if he has a low key response to an attempt to blow up an airliner and kill hundreds of people, we won’t be at war. He seems to think if he gives terrorists the rights of Americans, lets them lawyer up and reads them their Miranda rights, we won’t be at war. He seems to think if we bring the mastermind of 9/11 to New York, give him a lawyer and trial in civilian court, we won’t be at war.
“He seems to think if he closes Guantanamo and releases the hard-core al Qaeda trained terrorists still there, we won’t be at war. He seems to think if he gets rid of the words, ‘war on terror,’ we won’t be at war. But we are at war and when President Obama pretends we aren’t, it makes us less safe. Why doesn’t he want to admit we’re at war? It doesn’t fit with the view of the world he brought with him to the Oval Office. It doesn’t fit with what seems to be the goal of his presidency – social transformation—the restructuring of American society. President Obama’s first object and his highest responsibility must be to defend us against an enemy that knows we are at war.” Read More...
