We have an amateur radio-controlled airplane enthusiast flying a jumbo jet and we're the passengers on board.

"As commander in chief, I will not allow the United States to be drawn into fighting another war in Iraq," Obama said.

Even so, he outlined a rationale for airstrikes if the Islamic State militants advance on American troops in the northern city of Irbil and the U.S. consulate there. The troops were sent to Iraq earlier this year as part of the White House response to the extremist group's swift movement across the border with Syria and into Iraq.

http://news.msn.com/us/obama-authorizes-airst...

...So he sends troops into Iraq after having called it a "dumb war" (very presidential) and getting troops out of Iraq as fast as he could to now fight extremists (ISIS) who filled the vacuum after we left and of which he ignored as a clear and present danger for far too long and is now calling for airstrikes to protect the Americans that HE sent into Iraq.

He just needs to scratch his head and look very confused. I know we are.

Barack Obama has authorised targeted air strikes against Islamic militants in Iraq, as the US military began an airborne operation to bring relief to thousands of minority Iraqis driven to a grim, mountain-top refuge.

Describing the threats against stranded Yezidi refugees as holding the potential for “genocide”, the president said he had authorised limited air strikes to help Iraqi forces, to assist in the fight to break the siege and protect the civilians trapped there.

“When we face a situation like we do on that mountain, with innocent people facing the prospect of violence on a horrific scale and we have a mandate to help - in this case a request from the Iraqi government - and when we have unique capabilities to act to avoid a massacre, I believe the United States cannot turn a blind eye,” the president said in a late-night statement from the White House.

“Earlier this week, one Iraqi said no-one is coming to help. Well, today America is coming to help,” he said.

The delivery of humanitarian relief, in the form of air drops by US jets, took place after a day of intense debate at the White House over how to respond to an Isis army that has caused mass civilian displacement as it moves closer to the previously stable Kurdistan region of Iraq.

The air drops represented the first aerial mission over Iraq since 2011 for a purpose beyond conducting surveillance on Isis, providing long-scheduled military sales or transporting the extra hundreds of US special operations “advisers” that Obama ordered into Iraq to help Baghdad confront the threat from Isis. They marked the start of the deepest American engagement in Iraq since US troops withdrew in late 2011 after nearly a decade of war.

The US military was already helping the Iraqi government co-ordinate air drops of vital supplies to at least 40,000 Iraqis, mostly from the Yazidi minority, trapped on top of Mount Sinjar in the northwest of Iraq after death threats from the Islamists who have overrun much of the region.

Qaraqosh, Iraq’s largest Christian city, was left all but abandoned as the jihadist group Islamic State (Isis) advanced through minority communities in the country’s north-west and towards the Kurdish stronghold of Irbil. Late on Thursday night the UN security council condemned the attacks and urged international support for the Iraqi government.

Obama said “targeted air strikes” could soon be used to protect American personnel in Irbil, and could also be used to protect Baghdad if it came under pressure. He claimed the steps were a necessary response to a deteriorating humanitarian situation, in which there were “chilling reports” of mass executions and the enslavement of Yezidi women.

Obama is a Boy Scout acting as Commander-in-Chief.

He's a radical liberal who grew up with a lot of angst towards whites that carried over into sitting 20 years in Rev. Wright's Black Liberation Theology's "church" and was taught to hate everything America stands for in the Ivory Towers of academia .

Do you really think he has any clue about protecting it - and us?

Valerie Jarrett is probably pulling her hair out trying to figure out what he should do.

Yes. Just like Patrick wants to ignore the uninsured rate dropping by 4 percentage points in the blue states that embraced Obamacare solely because of the expansion of Medicare.

Have you noticed we never hear anything about how many signed up for Obamacare who won't be receiving subsidies due to these "expansions"?

And not one word about those who signed up to pay the high premiums and deductibles. Or those who found out about the high premiums and deductibles after they tried to see a doctor.

"Mum" must be the word in D.C.

Millions will be receiving employer-based cancellations around October. Maybe they're just hoping no one will find out.

Watched a popular show produced locally tonight. It's called Let it Rip!

They had an Arab News Editor from Dearborn on the show. He's bitching because the government has Dearborn, MI listed as the #2 city in the US on a Terrorist Watch List.

He called it racist.

He then went on to claim that Hamas is not a Terrorist Organization. Neither is Hezbollah. Nor is the Muslim Brotherhood or the PLO.

Everybody on stage gasped a collective sigh.

Muslims in America are a ticking Time Bomb, folks. We need to start printing out Allah Bulls Eyes for target practice.

Congress Isn’t Alone in Struggling to Obtain Obamacare Records

By Jillian Kay Melchior

August 7, 2014 6:10 PM

As news breaks about the Department of Health and Human Services’ missing HealthCare.gov e-mails, it’s pertinent to note how difficult it has been to obtain records in general about Obamacare, as I’ve learned personally over the past many months.

In Nevada, National Review had to sue the state health exchange before we were able to obtain records about how many Obamacare navigators had criminal backgrounds, despite the fact that they were handling consumers’ private information.(As it turned out, at least eight did.)

We faced similar struggles in California, where the health exchange employed some twisted logic to explain why it could not release the full records regarding navigators’ criminal backgrounds:

“All of these documents are nondisclosable because ‘the public interest served by not disclosing the record clearly outweighs the public interest served by disclosure of the record,’” a lawyer for the insurance exchange wrote, citing California Government Code §6255.“Disclosing the names and criminal records of individuals applying to assist in Covered California’s push to enroll vast numbers in health insurance by March 31, 2014, is likely to discourage participation in this critical program and thus harm the people of California.”

In the end, we discovered that at least 43 convicted criminals were working as Obamacare navigators in California, including individuals who had committed serious financial crimes.

And those are the states where we even managed to get an answer. Though the state-by-state back-and-forth is a long story, we were denied public records even after appeal in the District of Columbia, and we’ve struggled to get clear answers elsewhere, too.

In Hawaii, the legislators saw it fit to totally exempt the health exchange from the state’s sunshine laws, creating what one reporter described to me as “a huge accountability problem.”

It’s not just records dealing with navigators, either. We recently filed several requests looking into the tech security of the state and federal health exchanges, and coaxing them to produce records has already proven difficult.

Then again, there’s a lot for the government to be embarrassed about. The limited records we have managed to obtain have revealed that a Romanian hacker was able to gain access to a Vermont health exchange development server for an entire month before detection; that a federal audit found “high and critical issues” in the New Mexico health exchange; and that Covered California had potentially jeopardized the personal information of at least 378 Obamacare enrollees.

Yet even the Obama administration wrote in a 2009 memo that “the Freedom of Information Act should be administered with a clear presumption: in the face of doubt, openness prevails. The government should not keep information confidential merely because public officials might be embarrassed by disclosure, or because of speculative or abstract fears.”

As I write today, the Obama administration has talked the talk, but it’s failed to walk the walk. Journalists, congressmen, inspectors general, and other watchdogs have repeatedly struggled to force the government to release records that rightly belong to the public.

One might well ask: What does the Obama administration have to hide?
