Watching the Democratic Party’s Rules and Bylaws Committee meeting on May 31, 2008 shocked me. Being a “so-called domestic terrorist” according to Janet Napolitano’s Homeland Security Report shocked me. Being called racist, way back when, shocked me. Being asked to “flag” my neighbors to the White House shocked me. Watching a guy that has paid over $2 million dollars in attorney’s fees to fight court cases to reveal his documents shocked me. Watching the Supreme Court have a closed door meeting with Obama and Biden before his inauguration shocked me. Watching him apologize to the world for us shocked me.
Want me to go on?
I’m done being shocked. Bring it.
WASHINGTON — White House national security adviser James Jones says Americans will feel “a certain shock” when they read an account being released Thursday of the missed clues that could have prevented the alleged Christmas Day bomber from ever boarding the plane.
President Obama “is legitimately and correctly alarmed that things that were available, bits of information that were available, patterns of behavior that were available, were not acted on,” Jones said in an interview Wednesday with USA TODAY.
“That’s two strikes,” Obama’s top White House aide on defense and foreign policy issues said, referring to the foiled bombing of the Detroit-bound airliner and the shooting rampage at Fort Hood, Texas, in November. In that case, too, officials failed to act when red flags were raised about an Army psychiatrist, Maj. Nidal Hasan. He has been charged with killing 13 people.
Jones said Obama “certainly doesn’t want that third strike, and neither does anybody else.”
The White House plans to release an unclassified report Thursday on what went wrong in the incident involving a 23-year-old Nigerian man who tried to blow up a Northwest Airlines flight.
National Security with this crew is a joke, and we all know it.
