A new book by Washington Post editor Bob Woodward (of Watergate fame) has tongues wagging across America this morning.

The book, released today, titled Obama's Wars, paints the Obama administration as dysfunctional, and depicts the president himself as lackadaisical when it comes to national security.

During an hourlong interview with Woodward in July, US president Barack Obama said “We can absorb a terrorist attack. We’ll do everything we can to prevent it, but even a 9/11, even the biggest attack ever . . . we absorbed it and we are stronger.”

The quote gives the impression that Obama is saying, 'sure, there'll be tremendous casualties on our side, but we'll get over it -- we'll absorb it -- just as we did on September 11.'

Some say Obama's words are code words to give our enemies the heads up that we are not prepared to protect this country from a domestic terrorist attack.

Former UN Ambassador John Bolton blasted Obama's statement during an appearance on "Fox and Friends" this morning. Bolton said it proves Obama may not be fit to be commander-in-chief.

Political blogger Warner Todd Huston says Obama hasn’t done anything to make sure the U.S. can absorb another attack.

"Obama has done his level best to make us more vulnerable. From reducing the threat status, to eliminating intelligence programs that were getting results," he writes.

Ace of Spades blogger “Ace” wrote that he believes the comment is Obama's way of cajoling Americans into accepting the inevitable terrorist attacks as a means to bring about peace between America and the middle East. “We’re just going to have to be mature about mass murder,” wrote Ace [Emphasis his].

Ace points to Obama's own past statements criticizing the CIA's methods of extracting information from terrorists:

...the left is pushing this idea that we can safely “absorb” many new 9/11?s with an eye towards getting us to “accept” the greater bargain they fatuously offer — peace, and a general wind-down of post-9/11 security “overreactions” like the FBI tracking Muslims suspected of terrorist ties. If only we didn’t overreact to the occasional mass-murder [of Americans], we could go about our business without war, without increased security measures, without “Islamophobia,” without the rest of it.

Meanwhile, the Washington Post, which was advanced a copy of Woodward's book, portrays an Obama administration that is disjointed, dysfunctional and rife with backstabbing and finger pointing within its ranks.

For example, Vice President Joe Biden detested the president’s special representative for Afghanistan and Pakistan Richard Holbrooke, calling him “the most egotistical bastard I’ve ever met.” And new Afghanistan War General David Petraeus abhorred dealing with the president’s senior adviser David Axelrod because he was “a complete spin doctor.” [link]

  • cheezey

    i'll read the book myself & read the commentary after. i was really excited for the press next Monday, but it came prematurely. WaPo and NYT both leaked the contents of the book. Simon & Schuster didn't advance them a copy to run these reviews.

    NO I THINK WHAT HE'S SAYING IS THAT THOSE ATTACKS AREN'T GOING TO STOP US FROM BEING WHO WE ARE AND HE DOESN'T WANT IT TO LOOK LIKE WE ARE INTIMIDATED BY CERTAIN TERRORIST. WE ARE STRONG ENOUGH TO BOUNCE BACK FROM EVEN AN ATTACK OF THAT MAGNITUDE. SINCE THE ATTACK WE SAW FAULTS IN OUR SYSTEM WHICH MADE US MORE AWARE OF THE THREAT THAT IS OUT THERE. WE HAVE PREVENTED MANY FROM HAPPENEING BECAUSE OF HEIGHTENED SECURITY. :rolleyes:

    >:( This man can't do a dayum thing right, can he? Can't go to church, can't take a vacation, can't sneeze, can't poot. While I don't agree with all of his tactics, he hasn't been given a fair chance. Hell, Bush had 8 years to screw us over...we want to crucify Obama after only 20 months. SMDH.

    I'm sick of this mess. NEEEXXXTTTT!!!!!

  • Lodak

    Such books weren't cool under Bush, and they aren't cool now :nono: I understand journalists have to get their Pulitzers, but, damn. This man has enough to do without playing the publicity game, again. The honeymoon is definitely over.

    I wish Barack Obama was more like George W. Bush in this regard. He really didn't give a f*** what the media, et al, thought about him. He had a job to do, and he left the publicity game to his memoirs.

  • ohpretty1

    When you screen reporters and the question they ask prior to a press conference, you care a great deal about your public image and what people think (GWB).
