Homeland Security Has Become Reactive Under Obama – Proactive Days Gone

It seems like these days every time we hear about a terrorist attack, or attempted attack, Homeland Security reacts to the threat after the fact, but only for a short time, then the bomb sniffing dogs and extra security fade away.

During the Bush Administration, the threat level and an appropriate deterrent force was deployed numerous times. Although Democrats accused Bush of “scare tactics”  every time the threat level was raised, we suffered no attacks after 9/11.

So, it appears that the Obama Administration has perfected the tactic of closing the barn door after the horses escape. Our National Terror defense has moved from a proactive prevention tactic to one of reaction after the fact.

I am sure that pleases the terrorists no end.

In The Art of War, Sun Tzu said:

So it is said that if you know your enemies and know yourself, you can win a hundred battles without a single loss.

If you only know yourself, but not your opponent, you may win or may lose.

If you know neither yourself nor your enemy, you will always endanger yourself.

It is difficult to determine exactly which of the three categories Janet Napolitano has led Homeland Security to, but it is safe to say it is not the first.

A National Security policy based on Political Correctness is neither policy nor security. It is lunacy.

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
