Barack Obama, our next President

Do you ever go down to John Tiffany's place and hang out with him for a while__he's an elderly, holocaust denying, USA hating, German speaking, bigoted fk just like you.

The Border Patrol has not "been ordered by Obama to stand down". Reevaluating the departments deadly force protocols to keep our Border Patrol agents and the public safe is not an order to stand down.

Pentagon warns: Islamic State threat greater than 9/11 By MICHAEL WILNER
08/22/2014 00:41

"This is beyond anything that we've seen," Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel said.
Islamic State warns it has sleeper cells in the West, raises the stakes with beheading of American
US military campaign against Islamic State 'unchanged' after public killing
WASHINGTON -- The Islamic State poses a greater threat to the United States than al Qaeda did leading up to September 11, 2001, top brass at the Pentagon acknowledged on Thursday, discussing the crisis fast unfolding in eastern Syria and northern Iraq.

"This is beyond anything that we've seen," Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel said, speaking to journalists with Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Martin Dempsey. "We must prepare for everything."

Hagel said that the "military prowess" of the Islamic State, coupled with its deep sources of financing, poses an unprecedented threat to the United States. The secretary was asked whether the group has a comparable operation capacity as Al Qaeda had in 2001.

General Dempsey added that, should the Islamic State succeed in forming a pseudo-state in the regions of Iraq and the Levant, the world would then be faced with an historic security challenge.

Both men said that US air strikes in Iraq thus far had successfully halted the progress of the group. Hagel said that US President Barack Obama had been presented with the option of striking Islamic State targets in Syria, as well, and that those strikes are continuously under review.

But earlier in the day, US officials said that the US military will not broaden its campaign against the Islamic State in either Iraq or Syria after it killed American journalist James Foley. Obama spoke sharply against the group on Wednesday, vowing a "relentless" US response to Foley's murder.

US officials said that, despite Foley's public beheading and the threatening of another journalist, Steven Sotloff, should strikes continue, the president has no plans to significantly increase air strikes against Islamic State fighters.

"From a military perspective, I don't think this is going to change anything," one US official said. "The military objective never was to degrade ISIL... it was to protect US personnel and facilities."

The US military will not broaden its campaign against the Islamic State in either Iraq or Syria after it killed American journalist James Foley, officials said on Thursday, after Obama spoke sharply against the group, and of a “relentless” response to Foley’s murder.

Last week, however, State Department deputy spokeswoman Marie Harf said the US focus at the moment was to hurt the Sunni terrorist group throughout northern Iraq.

“We’re focused on pushing them back from this territory,” Harf said.

Foley’s death was captured on video by the group, paired with a message that warned of more American deaths unless the US stopped attacking its assets. The American military has struck more than 90 Islamic State targets thus far around Arbil, an oil-boom town, Mount Sinjar, a refuge for religious minorities, and Mosul Dam, a key piece of infrastructure, all in northern Iraq.

Foley’s family received an email a week before the video was released, warning of his pending death and demanding a ransom of the US government in the amount of $132.5 million. The US government has a longstanding policy against paying ransom to terrorists, unlike its European partners, which have paid the Islamic State for the return of their citizens in the past several months.

“We do not make concessions to terrorists,” Harf reiterated on Thursday, saying that the US refuses to fund terrorism or to encourage more kidnappings.

Either that or the Army is doing a very poor job of assessing the mental status of reserve officers when they return home.

“I personally believe in Jesus Christ as my lord savior, but I’m also a killer. I’ve killed a lot. And if I need to, I’ll kill a whole bunch more. I’m into diversity. I kill everybody, I don’t care.”(Officer Dan Page) Comes as no surprise that his fellow Republicans think he is sane.
