Barack Obama, our next President

Full story: Hampton Roads Daily Press

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ...

Flack clings to this lame excuse even though George W Bush never cited it.
Just how far will right whiners go to provide excuses for their President's lies to go to war & kill over 4,000 of our sons & daughters soldiers?
Have you no shame?
I wonder how many countries supported terrorists groups & why haven't we decided to invade each & every one of them. They provided far more support in allowing these groups to take shelter in their countries.
George W Bush said Sadam likely had nukes & were going to sell them to Al Qaeda
George W Bush said Sadam had links to Al Qaeda
George W Bush said he was spreading democracy.
George W Bush never said we invaded Iraq because Sadam sent some families of suicide bombers $25K.
Our invasion and destruction of Iraq gave way for increased AlQuaeda activity in Iraq.

Wrong nitwit! Water boarding is torture and we prosecuted its use as a war crime after WWII. There's nothing "up in the air" about it. Yes we do use it on intelligence trainees to teach them how to resist it. You obviously don't see the difference between participating voluntarily in a training regimen and being involuntarily tortured.
Panetta never implied that water boarding or in right wing PC parlance "enhanced interrogation" ever contributed to information that ultimately tracked down Bin Laden. John McCain who is on the Senate Intelligence Committee stated;
“It was not torture, or cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment of detainees that got us the major leads that ultimately enabled our intelligence community to find Osama bin Laden,”
He also stated;
“Ultimately this debate is about far more than technical or practical issues. It is about far more than whether torture works or does not work. It is about far more than utilitarian matters. Ultimately, this is about morality.”
“We are America, and we hold ourselves to a higher standard,”
And yet you keep insisting you're some kind of Christian.
Brilliant, interesting, agree!

Now we applaud the same federal flunkies who screwed up to begin with because they caught the guy after the fact. This guy was probably on a short list of subjects within an hour of the bombing. Then it was just a matter of finding him on (private) surveillance cameras.

Good job, FBI.

Now, how about rounding up the rest of his kind and deporting them?

Brothers Tsarnaev
Inspired by Chechen
Warlord on State
Department Payroll
Kurt Nimmo
Infowars.com
April 21, 2013
The Daily Mail reports today that
despite the fact the FBI had Tamerlan
Tsarnaev under surveillance for five
years, the agency discounted the
possibility he was in direct contact
with Doku Umarov, a man described as
“Russia’s Bin Laden,” and thus posed a
threat to the United States.
From the Daily Mail:
According to an intelligence source,
Russia remained convinced that
Tamerlan, an ethnic Chechen, was in
‘direct contact’ with Islamist militants,
most likely based in the strife-torn
southern Russian region of Dagestan,
where he lived for two years with his
family prior to moving to the US.
During a six-month visit to Russia last
year – a trip US investigators are
investigating – it is understood
Tamerlan visited Dagestan, which is
now regarded as more unstable than
Chechnya.
One theory is that Tamerlan and
Dzhokhar, who was in thrall to his
older brother, may have been
‘inspired’ by a rebel leader known as
Russia’s Bin Laden.
Doku Umarov, like the Tsarnaev
brothers, is an ethnic Chechen from
the war-torn Caucasus region that lies
between Europe and Central Asia.
The Daily Mail’s explanation, however,
omits a few crucial details – namely
that Doku Umarov, like his supposed
mentor Osama bin Laden, works in the
interest of U.S. intelligence and the
State Department.

Intelligence Claim: The Tsarnaev
brothers were double agents who
decoyed US into terror trap
DEBKAfile
April 21, 2013
The big questions buzzing over Boston Bombers Tamerlan
and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev have a single answer: It emerged
in the 102 tense hours between the twin Boston Marathon
bombings Monday, April 15 – which left three dead, 180
injured and a police officer killed at MIT – and Dzohkhar’s
capture Friday, April 19 in Watertown.
The conclusion reached by DEBKAfile’s counterterrorism
and intelligence sources is that the brothers were double
agents, hired by US and Saudi intelligence to penetrate
the Wahhabi jihadist networks which, helped by Saudi
financial institutions, had spread across the restive
Russian Caucasian.
Instead, the two former Chechens betrayed their mission
and went secretly over to the radical Islamist networks.
By this tortuous path, the brothers earned the dubious
distinction of being the first terrorist operatives to import
al Qaeda terror to the United States through a winding
route outside the Middle East – the Caucasus.
This broad region encompasses the autonomous or semi-
autonomous Muslim republics of Dagestan, Ingushetia,
Kabardino-Balkaria, Chechnya, North Ossetia and
Karachyevo-Cherkesiya, most of which the West has never
heard of.
Moscow however keeps these republics on a tight military
and intelligence leash, constantly putting down violent
resistance by the Wahhabist cells, which draw support
from certain Saudi sources and funds from the Riyadh
government for building Wahhabist mosques and schools
to disseminate the state religion of Saudi Arabia.
The Saudis feared that their convoluted involvement in
the Caucasus would come embarrassingly to light when a
Saudi student was questioned about his involvement in the
bombng attacks while in a Boston hospital with badly
burned hands.

The Politicization of the Boston Bombings Has Begun

The attacks have nothing to do with immigration reform, but partisans are rushing to exploit them anyway.

From the moment the first suspect in the Boston bombing was killed in a shootout, I was counting the minutes until the Beltway types started trying to score political points.

I didn’t have to wait long.

The bogus cry of this-raises-serious-concerns was soon heard throughout the land.

Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley rushed to say that in hearings he wants to examine immigration reform,“particularly in light of all that is happening in Massachusetts over the last week.”

Never mind that what happened in Boston has relatively little to do with the issues being debated on the immigration front. Many politicians and pundits do whatever they can to hitch their wagon to any news bulletin might give them a rhetorical edge.

Sometimes this is legitimate—the Newtown massacre clearly convinced President Obama to mount a passionate push for gun control—and sometimes it’s a stretch.

If a shoe bomber tries to blow up a plane, we need to debate airline security. If an oil spill erupts in the ocean, we need to check on whether there were adequate federal inspections.

But as tragic as the Boston Marathon bombing was, it doesn’t lend itself to a huge policy revamp, unless someone wants to ban fertilizer, or stop holding marathons.

http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2013/04...

[and] President Obama is fair game, having made two televised statements about the bombings in the first 48 hours, attended an interfaith service in Boston and appeared before the cameras after the second suspect was nabbed late Friday night. But even Mitt Romney praised the president’s speech in Boston, and what could the administration have done to prevent what happened at a marathon in which local police were in charge?

The carnage in downtown Boston was a shock to us all. Too bad some pols and pundits are already attempting to exploit it.

US Turns Away 1000&#8242;s of
Cancer Patients, but has
$123 Million for
Terrorists in Syria
Tony Cartalucci
Infowars.com
April 21, 2013
The US has announced that it will
provide militants in Syria, now openly
admitted to being Al Qaeda terrorists,
with $123 million in military aid –
while thousands of cancer patients at
home are being turned away from
clinics because of budget cuts.
Compounding the the criminal
negligence of telling sick people to
seek help elsewhere, is the fact that
the military aid the US is providing
terrorists in Syria will be used to
perpetuate an already 2 year
long, sectarian-driven humanitarian
disaster.
RT recently reported in their article,
“US to give $123 million military aid
package to Syrian rebels ,” that:
The US$123 million defense aid
package, announced by Kerry at the
meeting in the Turkish capital on
Sunday, includes body armor, armored
vehicles, advanced communication
equipment and night vision goggles.
In an April 3, 2013 Washington Post
article titled,“Cancer clinics are
turning away thousands of Medicare
patients. Blame the sequester ,” it was
reported:
Cancer clinics across the country have
begun turning away thousands of
Medicare patients, blaming the
sequester budget cuts.
Oncologists say the reduced funding,
which took effect for Medicare on
April 1, makes it impossible to
administer expensive chemotherapy
drugs while staying afloat financially.
When one considers that the conflict in
Syria was premeditated by the US,
Saudi Arabia, and Israel, as early as
2007, simply to overthrow the Syrian
government and weaken neighboring
Iran, the mind-numbing criminality of
America’s current foreign and
domestic policy becomes even more
obscene.
It was reported by Pulitzer Prize-
winning journalist Seymour Hersh in
his 2007 New Yorker article,“ The
Redirection: Is the Administration’s
new policy benefiting our enemies in
the war on terrorism?” that:
To undermine Iran, which is
predominantly Shiite, the Bush
Administration has decided, in effect,
to reconfigure its priorities in the
Middle East. In Lebanon, the
Administration has coöperated with
Saudi Arabia’s government, which is
Sunni, in clandestine operations that
are intended to weaken Hezbollah, the
Shiite organization that is backed by
Iran. The U.S. has also taken part in
clandestine operations aimed at Iran
and its ally Syria. A by-product of
these activities has been the bolstering
of Sunni extremist groups that espouse
a militant vision of Islam and are
hostile to America and sympathetic to
Al Qaeda.

There is all kinds of confusing statements coming out of the Boy Messiah's shithouse in the last few days and you can expect a helluva lot more to come. The FBI is fuzzy on this with no solid statements but cryptic BS.

We live in interesting times, just like the old Chinese curse warns us again. A terrorist attack in Boston, followed by a state-of-the-art witch hunt: a cellphone picture of two Moroccans near the finish line, posted online, soon plastered on the front page of the New York Post, and suddenly lives are turned upside down for fear of vigilante justice. A Saudi national detained at the hospital, suspicious because he was "running" (running after an explosion: how suspicious), ginned up into a claim on Fox News that "he is now going to be deported on national security grounds," then escalated by professional shrieker Pamela Geller into an obvious cover-up by the Saudi royal family in cahoots with B. Hussein Obama. Ideologues saddle up their hobbyhorses in order to ride; but at that, I am an ideologue, too. I spent much of yesterday lining up my argument for why a white nationalist militia type might want to spray shrapnel into a crowd on Tax Day, that shrapnel of this type is a classic marker of white-supremacist bombcraft, how an FBI obsessed with entrapping Arabs and anarchists ignores the right-wing lunatics in our midst. And, once I hear of the screen grabs of what I hear someone call "regular looking white guys," in baseball caps, no less, I get ready to pull the trigger on the argument...

And when Fox News wins in the end, I deflate. Chechens. Muslims! A Fox personality on my screen tells me one of the suspects linked to some site that had something to do with some Jihadi prophesy about how the Caliphate would unfold, then cautions that this doesn't mean they're Al-Qaeda for sure...

A calamitous explosion near Waco. Waco! My friend who texted is a libertarian—which sets me to thinking that if even libertarians suspect some latter-day Timothy McVeigh must be responsible, I should be speculating that, too.... And then, no: not terrorism. Just austerity, deregulation, a laggard Occupational Safety and Health Administration. As Lee Fang noted in this space yesterday, OSHA "has only inspected five fertilizer plants in the entire state of Texas—and the plant in West, Texas was not one of them." This particular facility was last inspected twenty-six years ago. "The US Chemical Safety Board, which came into operation in 1998, is the commission tasked with investigating safety violations. Like similar boards, the Chemical Safety Board has virtually no resources: only a $10 million budget to cover every violation in the country." I recast my dudgeon: the outsized devastation in West, Texas—see the hospital, nursing home, and middle school within steps of the factory on the map at the bottom of this article—owes to the absurdities of right-wing hegemony, too: what ever happened to zoning?

Yes, it's true: having dismounted the "maybe right-wing terrorists did it" hobbyhorse, I've mounted another. So sue me.

Massachusetts has very strict gun laws, so the weapons (as yet unidentified) were probably illegal.

We need more laws to make illegal weapons illegal.
