Spain: We were told Snowden was on Bolivia plane

Jul 5, 2013 Full story: Yahoo! 40

Spain on Friday said it had been warned along with other European countries that former U.S. intelligence worker Edward Snowden was aboard the Bolivian presidential plane this week, an acknowledgement that the manhunt for the fugitive leaker had something to do with the plane's unexpected diversion to Austria.

This is so embarrassing. Our Government spies on our allies, our people, and befriends our Muslim enemies. Then it knows what you ate for supper, but cannot find the guy whose picture is shown all over the world 24/7. Now Venezuela is offering Snowden asylum, just to embarrass the President of the United States. Can we see some leadership, Please?

Even more embarrassing is the realization that Obama has no qualms about using drones to kill Americans until now. If we monitor phone calls, as Snowden has made the world believe, Obama must know where he is and where he is going. Apparently, Obama simply doesn't want to stop the traitor. Could it be he actually supports the embarrassment of America? Is Michele even prouder today than when her husband was elected?

More Muslim terrorists have been captured or killed during the
Obama years than Bush ever thought of.

The list:

The list of senior terrorists killed during the Obama presidency is fairly extensive.

There’s Osama bin Laden, of course, killed in May 2011.

Arabian Peninsulaleader Anwar al-Awlaki.

Al Qaeda’s chief of Pakistan operations, Abu Hafs al-Shahri, was killed in Waziristan, Pakistan.

‘Atiyah ‘Abd al-Rahman, the deputy leader of al Qaeda was killed.

One of the most dangerous commanders, Ilyas Kashmiri, was killed in Pakistan. In Yemen that same month, AQAP senior operatives Ammar al-Wa’ili, Abu Ali al-Harithi, and Ali Saleh Farhan were killed. In Somalia, Al-Qa’ida in East Africa (AQEA) senior leader Harun Fazul was killed.

Administration officials also herald the U.S./Pakistani joint arrest of Younis al-Mauritani in Quetta.

Tehrik e-Taliban Pakistan leader Baitullah Mahsud was killed in Pakistan.

Jemayah Islamiya operational planner Noordin Muhammad Top was killed in Indonesia, and AQEA planner Saleh Ali Saleh Nabhan was killed in Somalia.

Al Qaeda operational commanders Saleh al-Somali and ‘Abdallah Sa’id were killed.

Taliban deputy and military commander Abdul Ghani Beradar was captured; Haqqani network commander Muhammad Haqqani was killed; and Lashkar-e Jhangvi leader Qari Zafar was killed.

Al Qaeda operative Hussein al-Yemeni was killed in Pakistan, while senior Jemayah Islamiya operative Dulmatin - accused of being the mastermind behind the 2002 Bali bombings – was killed during a raid in Indonesia.

Al Qaeda in Iraq leaders Abu Ayyub al-Masri and Abu Omar al-Baghdadi were killed.

Al Qaeda’s number three commander, Sheik Saeed al-Masri was killed.

In Pakistan, al Qaeda commander Hamza al-Jawfi was killed.

That's "befriending" our Muslim enemies?

If Bush could only have done half as well.

Obama has also murdered more Americans than Bush, or any other American President, has thought of. He can find them and kill them with drones. He knows where Snowden the traitor is, but does nothing. Why is that?

I think it is because Smowden has Obama's birth certificate tattooed on his butt!! Can't afford to let anyone find him dead! That is a joke, but what isn't funny is Snowden could very well end up murdered, and we don't have any idea who he has given those 4 laptops filled with security secrets to. My guess is WikiLeaks.

So far, we can be sure China and Russia have copies. Who they passed them on to is anybody's guess.

And Bush got more Americans killed for no good reason
(other than his reelection in 2004) than any other president
since the Vietnam War..
Over 5000. 30,000 seriously wounded.

Top that.

Reaganomics = Epic FAIL.

Spain has set out its austerity budget for 2013, with new spending cuts but protection for pensions, amid a shrinking economy and 25% unemployment.

Deputy Prime Minister Soraya Saenz de Santamaria called it "a crisis budget designed to exit the crisis".

Tens of thousands of angry Spaniards protested in 80 cities throughout Spain on Thursday against the government's latest austerity package, blaming officials for "ruining" the country.

When you attend graduation parties this summer listen to how the opinions of your government have changed over what they were last year. Democrats held in low esteem this year, and well they should be after Benghazi, BTW have you seen where they have hidden away a General who might tell the truth about Benghazi? Then there is the IRS, and NSA spying scandals. No end to other little problems. This whole Administration has so much to hide it will take years to unravel. This is what you get when you elect a color instead of a leader.

Snowden has 2 countries offering him asylum. A little plastic surgery, some new clothes, and he can live out his life to old age. I am sorry he had to go to the ends he did to get the truth to his other Americans, but I don't want him back.

Get the "truth"?

The truth has been out there for over a decade.

Remember before Jan. 20th 2009?

As much as you would like to believe the spying the Bush Administration is nothing to the degree the Obama Administration has gone to to spy on all Americans. And spying didn't start with Bush, it started with the Hillbilly w*ore hopper. Remember the 900 FBI files they held over the heads of the FBI?

December 16, 2005

Months after the Sept. 11 attacks, President Bush secretly authorized the National Security Agency to eavesdrop on Americans and others inside the United States to search for evidence of terrorist activity without the court-approved warrants ordinarily required for domestic spying, according to government officials.

Under a presidential order signed in 2002, the intelligence agency has monitored the international telephone calls and international e-mail messages of hundreds, perhaps thousands, of people inside the United States without warrants over the past three years in an effort to track possible "dirty numbers" linked to Al Qaeda, the officials said. The agency, they said, still seeks warrants to monitor entirely domestic communications.

Mr. Bush's executive order allowing some warrantless eavesdropping on those inside the United States - including American citizens, permanent legal residents, tourists and other foreigners - is based on classified legal opinions that assert that the president has broad powers to order such searches, derived in part from the September 2001 Congressional resolution authorizing him to wage war on Al Qaeda and other terrorist groups, according to the officials familiar with the N.S.A. operation.

Poor teabagger.

Bush may have authorized it, but the unauthorized version was in place long before the legal version. President Bush wasn't sneaky like Clinton, and Obama. He went through Congress, didn't violate the Constitution. The Democrats are lawless.
