Can we stop pretending now?

| December 27, 2009

Back in June, the FBI admitted that they were investigating Carlos Bledsoe before he shot two soldiers in Little Rock, AR.

The investigation was in its preliminary stages, authorities said, and was based on the suspect’s travel to Yemen and his arrest there for using a Somali passport.

Early last month, after Nidal Hasan shot scores of his fellow soldiers at Fort hood, we were treated to nightly admissions from federal government law enforcement agency representatives who paraded across our TV screens doing the “infantry salute” while telling us that Hasan hadn’t been considered a threat to anyone.

In the wake of the latest attempt on innocent Americans, the Christmas fireworks display on Northwest Flight 253, we’re hearing more of the same drivel from federal apologists;

Four weeks ago, Abdulmutallab’s father told the U.S. embassy in Abuja, Nigeria, that he was concerned about his son’s religious beliefs. This information was passed on to U.S. intelligence officials.

Abdulmutallab received a valid U.S. visa in June 2008 that is good through 2010.

His is one of about 550,000 names in the Terrorist Identities Datamart Environment database, known as TIDE, which is maintained by the U.S. National Counterterrorism Center and was created in response to the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. Intelligence officials said they lacked enough information to place him in the 400,000-person terror watch list or on the no-fly list of fewer than 4,000 people who should be blocked from air travel.

His father, for Pete’s sake, warned our protectors in the federal government. Are you going to tell me that we just yesterday learned about his trips to Yemen before he boarded the flight to Amsterdam? Really?

There’s a reason it’s called a TERRORIST WATCH LIST. You illiterate baboons in the Federal government are supposed to WATCH people on the list – it’s right there in the name! Maybe you could if you weren’t so damn busy looking for a tube of toothpaste in checked luggage so you could put the tube in a baggie and leave a scolding message in the luggage.

Can we please stop pretending that we’re not at war and that no one except tiny blue-haired Baptist grannies from Alabama present us with a threat?

While we’re at it, can we please stop pretending that this is not a religious war? The Left frames it in terms of a class war – the terrorists have no choice but to fight the evil West because they’re so poor. Hasan was a college-educated doctor (educated at tax payer expense, by the way). Abdulmutallab, was educated at university in Great Britain, lived in a $4 million apartment, was the son of Nigeria’s leading banker.

So can we just stop pretending that this war isn’t happening?

    They pull some 83 year old granma off the plane. They pull Joe Foss off the plane (yeah, THAT Joe Foss), but the scumbag’s father reports him to our embassy 6 months ago and again 4 weeks ago and they let it ride?? I swear this PC administration is going to get more Americans, as well as others, killed if they don’t grow a pair and do their fricken job. This is just the latest in Bobo’s hands-off approach to terrorists. He’s more concerned “diversity” than security. Don’t worry, Bobo, the passengers, who would have died on that airplane, were a very diverse mix.

    The U.S. will end up with a Marxist government under an Islamist or we will all be killed by a case of democrat PC’s, whichever comes first. Everyone should have understood that before they elected the Soros Marxist/Islamic puppet. It’s now up to the people, you can impeach the idiot and kick a couple of hundred enablers out of congress or be prepared to kill them all later. Why do you think O’Dumbo had Shrillary sign the U.N. law which will disarm every American? Democrats are so stupid they think the average American can’t figure out how to build a bomb that works. 99% of Americans could build a bomb that would do to congress what the bomber did in Ok, and on a larger scale. The American people simply aren’t to that point yet, but it’s getting closer.

    Don’t interfere with BOBO, let him eat his waffle and inprove hit golf swing.

    But it’s just so much easier and politically correct to screw over Christians than inconvenience Muslims!!

    I’d say it’ll take another 9/11 or hundreds of Americans to “get it” but I don’t honestly believe that. It would just stoke more “we did it to ourselves” rhetoric and the message would be lost.

    Ok, Jonn, let me put it this way: In the eyes of our current administration; this war isn’t happening. They have made concerted efforts to minimize it with mild sounding names like “man made disaster” and not calling terrorists what they are, which is terrorists. Granted, to people with 3 functioning braincells and more common sense than a fence post, it is a war, but they don’t work in the current government, or aren’t dogwashers for the current fraud residing in the whitehouse.

    To the rest of us, it is and has been a war. One we didn’t start no matter how the drooling moonbats spin it, but a war none the less. Denying, ignoring, giving it mild names will not change that. What it will do and as what has been happening is embolden our enemies and those that would do us harm.

    When the administration pays more attention to political foes, or those that disagree with them, and consider them the enemy, they are not doing their job of pro-actively protecting our nation. That is the job of the President and he’s not doing his job. Of course when your focus isn’t protecting our country, this is what happens.
