A new book by Washington Post associate editor Bob Woodward describes the Obama administration as barraged with warnings about the threat of terrorist attacks on U.S. soil. President Obama told Woodward in an interview for his "Obama's Wars," "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." More at washingtonpost.com
I have been researching this man for years (read the book) and this is by far, the scariest and creepiest thing of all.
It's as if ...............he wants it
A classified exercise in May showed that the government was woefully unprepared to deal with a nuclear terrorist attack in the United States. The scenario involved the detonation of a small, crude nuclear weapon in Indianapolis and the simultaneous threat of a second blast in Los Angeles. Obama, in the interview with Woodward, called a nuclear attack here "a potential game changer."
"Coward alert (and remember he campaigned on war in Afghanistan, that was where we really needed to be - the good war)... Ugh
President Obama urgently looked for a way out of the war in Afghanistan last year, repeatedly pressing his top military advisers for an exit plan that they never gave him, according to secret meeting notes and documents cited in a new book by journalist Bob Woodward.
Is it any wonder our troops are dying at record levels?
According to Woodward's meeting-by-meeting, memo-by-memo account of the 2009 Afghan strategy review, the president avoided talk of victory as he described his objectives.
Obama on Afghan War: "I'm Done doing This!"
Here's an excerpt:
When asked about sending in 4,500 more troops to save lives, the President erupted, yelling, "I’m done doing this!" The President's decision to end Afghan war in 2011 is also shown as a political move. Speaking about why he decided he cannot push back the 2011 withdrawal date, the President stated that he wanted to keep his liberal support. “I can’t let this be a war without end, and I can’t lose the whole Democratic Party,” the President said.
The anger does not stop at the top. In a heated conversation about Richard Holbrooke, the administration’s special representative to Afghanistan and Pakistan, Vice President Joe Biden called him "the most egotistical bastard I've ever met."
