Obama: US intel had info ahead of airliner attack
HONOLULU (AP) – President Barack Obama said Tuesday that the intelligence community had bits of information that should have been pieced together that would have triggered “red flags” and possibly prevented the Christmas Day attempted terror attack on a Detroit-bound airliner.

“There was a mix of human and systemic failures that contributed to this potential catastrophic breach of security,” Obama said.

Obama: US intel had info ahead of airliner attack

“There was a mix of human and systemic failures” you say?

You know, sometimes I scare myself with the analysis I offer and the words I use in doing so.

When your own family sounds the warning, when they try to alert others to your potential to do violence and commit acts of terror, and those warnings are pretty much ignored, and swept under the rug, that is sorely indicative of systemic failure.

Those are the words I used to describe what we are seeing from the Obama administration a day or so ago, in this post; Feds assess terror watchlists after airline attack. Systemic failure.

It’s not easy making all of these astute observations you know! Trying to 2nd guess and predict the words and deeds of the most evil administration in American history is a lot of work!

Now I have to wonder, does Obama and Company read my blog? :P

The officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss intelligence matters, said the conversations were vague or coded, but the intelligence community believes that, in hindsight, the communications may have been referring to the Detroit attack. One official said a link between the suspect’s planning and al-Qaida’s goals was becoming more clear.

Intelligence officials would not confirm whether those conversations involved Yemen-based radical cleric Anwar al-Awlaki, but other U.S. government officials said there were initial indications that he was involved. Al-Awlaki reportedly corresponded by e-mail with Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, who is charged with killing 13 people at Fort Hood, Texas, on Nov. 5.

Have you noticed? Information about the attack at Ft. Hood has been less than flowing. Again we are going to see a less than transparent response from the Obama administration. Shuck and jive! The political spin of a Chicago community organizer.

They are looking for a way to spin this closing, or attempted closing, of the barn door after the horse has left the building.

Officials said Obama chose to make a second statement in as many days because a morning briefing offered him new information in the government’s possession about the suspect’s activities and thinking, along with al-Qaida’s plans.

I beg your pardon? He made a 2nd statement because he has minions that are watching for any sign of serious dissent against The Obamessiah!

Dissent is running rampant, and Obama is going about the business of CYA, Cover Your Ass for those not familiar with the acronym. He is not about to get caught with his hand in the cookie jar. There are people that can be thrown under the bus. There are those that will fall on their sword to protect and defend the reputation and integrity of The Obamessiah!

Obama’s statement showed more fire than he had shown previously about the lapses that allowed the bombing attack to take place and came after his homeland security secretary, Janet Napolitano, had to backtrack on an assertion that “the system worked” in the Detroit airliner scare. Some have criticized Obama for not addressing the issue publicly sooner.

Of course he showed more fire, he’s had 3 days to rehearse, and his handlers have him dancing on that string we have always heard so much about. The puppet master has Obama dancing the dance of a lifetime as they attempt to placate the masses once again. Smoke and mirrors…

Obama said many things went right after the incident, with passengers and the flight crew subduing the man and government officials working quickly to increase security. He singled out Napolitano, backing her much-criticized comments that the attempted terror attack showed the aviation security system worked.

“As Secretary Napolitano has said, once the suspect attempted to take down Flight 253, after his attempt, it’s clear that passengers and crew, our homeland security systems, and our aviation security took all appropriate actions,” Obama said.

Sec. Janet Napolitano, the most unqualified person Obama could have possibly chosen to head up the Department of Homeland Security.

Napolitano has NO idea regarding the word security. Napolitano has no background, no training and inspires no confidence in the position she holds. Napolitano believes that people like myself and my readers are the REAL threat to this nation. Surely you all remember this.

A Homeland Security analysis being distributed to law enforcement agencies and warning of a new era of domestic terrorism has provoked a storm of criticism among conservatives who view it as a thinly veiled attack on Republicans by the Obama administration.

The report concludes that a new wave of homegrown terror has been spawned by the election of the nation’s first black president and anger over unemployment, rising poverty and illegal immigration. It singles out returning war veterans as a potential recruiting base for the extremists.

Entitled “Right-Wing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment,� the report has been confirmed as real by DHS chief Janet Napolitano. However, her department has not explained why they’ve never produced a report looking at the violent political left in America. SOURCE

According to Janet Napolitano, our returning veterans are potential domestic terrorists. American Conservatives are potential domestic terrorists. TEA Party members are potential domestic terrorists. That is how Janet Napolitano views matters. That is her perception of the dangers America faces from terrorists! The citizens of America are the threat in her eyes.

Her belief is that domestic terrorists pose more of a danger than an unsecured border with the nation of Mexico. Of course Janet Napolitano, and the rest of the Obama administration, would NEVER admit that there was any way a REAL terrorist could have inserted himself into the USA!

We can’t stop fighting my friends. We can’t sit back and let the libbers take this nation any further into the abyss of socialism and moral turpitude. And that is exactly where Obama and Company are planning on taking America. Once there, once we are defenseless, once we are disarmed, cold, homeless and hungry, our nation will be taken over by the evil that is Islam.

Then, Barack Hussein Obama will have accomplished the goal that is his real and true intention!

How’s that *Hope and Change* thing working out for you now?

    Refusing to interrupt his Hawaiian golf vacation for almost three full days after the Flight 253 attack, President Barack Obama finally emerged on December 28th to assure the American people that Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab was “an isolated extremist� and that he had already “been charged with attempting to destroy an aircraft.� Continuing to treat the incident like a common law enforcement problem Obama referred to Abdulmutallab as the “suspect� five times and promised he would “not rest until we find all who were involved and hold them accountable.�

    Perhaps Obama should have stayed on the links for another 24 hours, because by yesterday it had become exceedingly clear that Abdulmutallab was in no conceivable way “isolated� and was instead very much part of al Qaeda’s larger war on the United States. Here’s what we know so far:

    It seems to me that everyone gets it except for Obama and his minions…

    “Integrity”? Pfft! Someone needs to send him a dictionary so he can look up the word. It’s definitely not part of his character.

    I know my head has been feeling like it will explode with all the facts coming out and listening to the illogical BS being put out there by libbers. I am getting very, very depressed.

    I hope the Obama Administration is on the Highway to Hell, without taking the rest of us with them!

    Are they reading your blog?

    Of course.

    “The citizens of America are the threat in her eyes. ”

    Could this possibly be what janet is shitting her pants about, and for GOOD reason? Americans, that are fed up with liberalfuck pukes like her. If I was in her shoes I’d be worrying too. Helloooooo janet, are you watching???

    You make some very good point Fred. Janet Napolitano is not qualified to be a dog catcher must less a terrorist catcher. But then who in the Obama administration is! These fools will not even difine the word terrorist so how in the hell can they every hope to find them. It is not the Islamic terrorist they see as the threat to them but rather the forces of the right and the U.S. Constitution. They will go through the motions of a review and the Senate and House will hold hearings and fingers will be pointed and perhaps a few heads will roll, but nothing will change and the head of the snake will remain in tact and things will continue in the same lackadaisical way. Those in the Oval Office are wearing the blinders of multiculturalism and political correctness and will never see the approaching dangers.

    Janet, Don’t think of us as a potential threat to the nation; just the Obama administration. Potential “Freedom Fighters” so to speak.

  8. comment number 8 by: JDS

    Obama needs to do us a favor and send Napolitano out on point in Afghanistan to draw enemy fire…

    about the only thing useful she’d be good for.

    I’m afraid of what I’d see if they used a full-body scanner on her!

    Have we had enough yet?

    Can we stop the illogical practice of “random” searches and start the much more logical, non-PC and EFFECTIVE method of profiling?

    Can you imagine the outcome had we tried “random” searches when fighting the Germans?

    “Oh, since he’s got an SS uniform on, and we’ve already searched three SS officers today, let him pass – search the ninety five year old blind and crippled nun in the wheelchair instead.”

    Napolitano ran this state into the ground, and it’s coming due under a RINO governor – so the Republicans are taking the blame, handily being dished out by the press and the DemoRATS.

    On a totally unrelated note, does anyone know where I can borrow a long rifle, big bore, with no serial number and a really large scope? Preferably in the .50 cal range … ?

    Obama is in full CYA mode, that is clear. This coward released a pre recorded audio address so that he would not have to face questions from the media. He is talking about accountability but he is unwilling to be held accountable himself.
    The CIA knew about this man and did nothing, what is it going to take for these organizations that are supposed to protect us to actually take the proper action. Did we learn nothing after September 11th?

    This administrations becomes more embarrassing by the day.

    And more dangerous.

    Exactly.

    BHO doesn’t give a damn about America or Americans.

    I can’t wait for the “Blame it on Bush” spin crap to begin…

  14. comment number 14 by: TexasFred

    I think it already has Patrick… The weak minded libberpukes will never take the blame for anything, even if they were in power for a dozen years now, if something goes wrong, it was Bush’s fault… That my friend is the libber mindset!

  15. comment number 15 by: Bagbane

    Fred the libbers forget, They have been in power since 2006. If the president had as much power like they say, then Obamacare would have been passed this past spring.
    They can blame Bush as much as they want. They also have to accept responsibility for their actions and inactions.
