Yesterday Barack Hussein put down his surfboard and emerged from his $8.9 million estate, $4000 per night crib (during what he calls "the greatest depression since the 30s") and made a limp dick statement on the Detroit ball bomber’s jihad to blow up flight 253. The tip toeing president said the “suspect” arrested for the “alleged” bombing:
Mark Steyn on the ball bomber:
There's a difference between an alleged suspect (which is what he is is the President's fantasy) and an enemy combatant (which is what he is in reality). If this were a war, we would question him about who he hooked up with in Yemen, who did he meet with in London, and maybe get a lead on attacks to come. Instead, the authorities, having issued the Knickerbomber a multi-entry visa, having permitted him to board the plane, and having failed to detect his incendiary unwear, now allow him to lawyer up and ensure that we'll never know who he knew in Yemen or anywhere else.
This would be a big enough gamble in the best of circumstances. Up against the broader background Derb discusses, it makes disaster inevitable.
