In 1995, Yousef unsuccessfully tried to orchestrate the simultaneous explosions of 11 U.S. airliners over the Pacific en route to the United States. Only that year did a small group of officials begin to hunt for Osama Bin Laden.

Between that time and Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist groups were largely left alone in lawless safe havens in Afghanistan to recruit, train, raise funds and build logistical networks to conduct attacks against the United States. In Bin Laden’s 1996 fatwa, he stated that after terror attacks killed U.S. troops in Beirut and Mogadishu,“You left the area carrying disappointment, humiliation, defeat and your dead with you.”

Today, the threat landscape has changed. Though our military efforts have scattered and decimated the core of Al Qaeda’s operations and leadership, franchises such as those that attacked the BP gas facility in Algeria share its mission and have reach inside the United States.

Al QAEDA’s North African affiliates have become EMBOLDENED BY OUR TIMID RESPONSE TO BENGHAZI, Libya, have gained significant wealth by ratcheting up multi-million dollar kidnappings for ransom and they use this wealth to fund operations against the West. Today, North Africa is the next theater of operations in the war on terror.

As the administration draws down troops abroad, it must maintain a comprehensive strategy for combating the increasingly decentralized nature of the Al Qaeda movement. Just as we have expanded our counterterrorism efforts into Pakistan, whether through the use of drones, special forces or additional intelligence gathering, our efforts in North Africa must address the reality that Al Qaeda in the region is spreading and building as a threat to our homeland. These sons of Al Qaeda are committed to finishing the task they started on U.S. soil 20 years ago.

Today, as we mourn those who have been lost, we also must recognize that SECURITY NOW REQUIRES MORE THAN SPEECHES AND SANCTIONS. With each new day should come a resilient ambition to find and root out those who will use any means necessary to destroy our freedom and way of life.

<quoted text>When he decides to stop campaigning and learns how to govern.
As a leader he is a failure.
why is President Obama's latest performance a box office dud?

It has all the elements that have swooned audiences before: greedy millionaires and billionaires; corporate jets; tax loopholes for oil magnates; the forgotten middle class... It even promises imminent collapse of the U.S. military, rancid meat, air traffic havoc and teacherless classrooms. This thing should be packing theaters.

But it's not. In fact, Americans don't seem to care much at all about "Sequester, the Sequel." They are either nonplused or comfortably numb over its rollout. Whichever it is, the eyes are definitely glazed over.

Obama is doing his formulaic best to drive sales. He made his big State of the Union speech in Washington, and then HIT THE CAMPAIGN TRAIL ON AIRFORCE ONE, LIKE HE ALWAYS DOES.

He's doing small-market television interviews to AVOID INFORMED QUESTIONS from the national press, and behind him at campaign stop after stop is that perfect demographic patchwork of faces in every shade and hue. He's hammering at those unhip, unpopular, unresponsive Republicans day and night by email, text message and Twitter.

But Americans remain unexcited. When you ask them about the upcoming sequester, they are approximately split on whether to make cuts or raise taxes more, depending on how the question is framed. The one thing they aren't is riled or alarmed. Even the demonstrators sent out to picket the offices of Republican House members must sense the surrealness of this moment.

Didn't we just see this film?

Isn't this the one that ends, maddeningly, "To be continued..."?

We've had the Great Depression, The Great War and now The Great Obama. His legacy will be that he is the worst President in US History. His hollywood friends have assisted him in duping America. We now must weather 4 more years of fear mongering, free spending and foolish foreign policy by this empty suit. God save America !!

No, but damn that chit spweads itself like the black plague did to medieval ARP's, hopping the boats to get away from it--as in EWE.
