Why does this raise the white flag of surrender ? Combined with several actions recently taken by the Obama administration the clear signal to our enemies is that American resolve has weakened and the effort to destroy terrorism is no longer a goal or policy of The United States with Obama at the helm.
Investigating those who through interrogation acquired necessary information from terrorists which saved thousands of American lives not only weakens the ability of gathering preventative information which can preempt possible attacks, but those who have been performing this duty for the protection of the American people, will be extremely hesitant to continue to perform this duty since in doing so they risk criminal investigation and political destruction.
Additionally taking interrogation of terrorists from the CIA and placing it under the direction of the White House under a new office of intelligence created by Obama and using ONLY the FBI for intelligence gathering, reverts terrorism to a criminal act which has failed in the past. Also just using the FBI severely hampers the ability to use covert techniques and intelligence gathering that is the speciality of the CIA.
The claim that since taking office Obama has been more successful against terrorism than the Bush years is laughable at best and dangerous at worst. This is the administration who could not even convince Scotland into NOT releasing the convicted terrorist who participated in the bombing of Pan Am flight 103 and the entire world witnessed the celebration of this murderer being elevated to hero status in the fanatical Islamic world.
This is the President who does not consider victory against terrorism a goal and apologizes for our actions after 9/11. This is the President who sees September 11 as a day of service for volunteers to participate in green activities rather than a day when we remember that evil attacked our Nation in an act of war and killed more than 3000 of our fellow countrymen.
Rather than using every method available to protect this Nation from our enemies, Obama is using the power of his office to hamper our ability to defend and protect this Nation and the American people. All to satisfy a political agenda and to do what liberals do best, destroy through all means possible the strength of our country and the power to defeat those who threaten us.
So we now see the progression of the hope and change promises of Barack Obama during his campaign. Obama attacks the CIA which will end real successful and beneficial intelligence gathering, weakening our ability to prevent possible attacks and sooner rather than later Americans will once again experience another 9/11 or worse.
Our enemies are laughing at Obama’s weakness. Our allies are shaking their heads at his stupidity. Our would be enemies are considering the real possibility that they can take advantage of this weakness and terrorists are planning and preparing for the next attack which Obama’s weakness is now making a distinct probability.
