The threat of terrorism has not subsided under the Obama Kiss ass and bow foreign policy. In fact, it has increased. President Bush managed to use all tools available to keep American’s safe despite the objections of Democrats to the Patriot Act and wire taps designed to prevent terrorism.
The Obama Administration has moved our national policy from one of preventing terrorism to one of reacting and prosecuting after the fact. As if the American justice system, with it’s potential world platform would frighten would be terrorists.
Obama’s delayed reaction to the Christmas botched bombing of an American airliner, displaying only a fleeting acknowledgment of the event before returning to his round of golf is all the evidence one needs to know that this administration is more concerned with the rights and plight of terrorists than in preserving American lives. Obama actually seemed more annoyed that his vacation was interrupted than the fact we were attacked. CBS’s Jeff Glor and Chip Reid lamented the fact that Obama must interrupt his vacation and deal with terrorism. Obama had to work and was unable to “recharge his batteries”.
Perhaps they would feel differently if it were their flight that was attacked.
As Obama has taken the country from a position of prevention of terrorism to one of reaction after the fact, his fellow Democrats fail to take notice of the new, open arms policy embracing terrorism.
The terrorists have noticed.
