In a New York Times article from September 13, 2014, when asked about the beheading of the two Americans and now the man from England, our president had this to say.
“If he had been “an adviser to ISIS,” Mr. Obama added, he would not have killed the hostages but released them and pinned notes on their chests saying, “Stay out of here; this is none of your business.” Such a move, he speculated, might have undercut support for military intervention.” http://www.nytimes.com/2014/09/14/world/middleeast/paths-to-war-then-and-now-haunt-obama.html?_r=0
Yes, you read it correctly. He would have pinned notes on their chests and set them free. Pinned. Notes. On. Their. Chests. It defies belief. Who thinks like this, much less says it out loud? Isn’t this what teachers did with little kids in kindergarten and first grade when they needed a note to be delivered to parents?
How in the world does he think pinning notes on people would have led to lesser support for military intervention? Perhaps he thinks the American people would laugh and point fingers saying how unserious they think ISIS is by doing such a thing. Heaven knows ISIS is certainly laughing their butts off. It will be interesting to see how this is spun on the MSM and by the White House, if they mention it at all. I suppose conservatives could thank him every time he says something this stupid and point out that those democrats who still hang tight with him not only agree with his strategy, but are every bit as dumb as he is.
In the same article, Mr. Obama first states the rescue mission to retrieve Mr. Foley and Mr. Sotloff was a failure. Further down, he says he authorized the Pentagon to develop a rescue plan the same day it was brought to his attention and that this plan was “executed flawlessly” only a few days later. Yet it has been proven that he sat on giving the go-ahead for 30 or so days. Apparently, Mr. Obama has different definitions of “only a few days” and “flawlessly” than you and I do.
If this man face-palmed himself as often as he “blunders”, he’d have two very swollen eyes and a broken nose by now.
