Barack Obama and the CIA: why does President Pantywaist hate America so
The Daily Telegraph, Gerald Warner
If al-Qaeda, the Taliban and the rest of the Looney Tunes brigade want to
kick America to death, they had better move in quickly and grab a piece of
the action before Barack Obama finishes the job himself. Never in the
history of the United States has a president worked so actively against the
interests of his own people - not even Jimmy Carter.
Obama's problem is that he does not know who the enemy is. To him, the enemy
does not squat in caves in Waziristan, clutching automatic weapons and
reciting the more militant verses from the Koran: instead, it sits around at
tea parties in Kentucky quoting from the US Constitution. Obama is not at
war with terrorists, but with his Republican fellow citizens. He has never
abandoned the campaign trail.
That is why he opened Pandora's Box by publishing the Justice Department's
legal opinions on waterboarding and other hardline interrogation techniques.
He cynically subordinated the national interest to his partisan desire to
embarrass the Republicans. Then he had to rush to Langley, Virginia to try
to reassure a demoralised CIA that had just discovered the President of the
United States was an even more formidable foe than al-Qaeda.
"Don't be discouraged by what's happened the last few weeks," he told
intelligence officers. Is he kidding? Thanks to him, al-Qaeda knows the
private interrogation techniques available to the US intelligence agencies
and can train its operatives to withstand them - or would do so, if they had
not already been outlawed.
So, next time a senior al-Qaeda hood is captured, all the CIA can do is ask
him nicely if he would care to reveal when a major population centre is due
to be hit by a terror spectacular, or which American city is about to be
irradiated by a dirty bomb. Your view of this situation will be dictated by
one simple criterion: whether or not you watched the people jumping from the
Obama promised his CIA audience that nobody would be prosecuted for past
actions. That has already been contradicted by leftist groups with a
revanchist ambition to put Republicans, headed if possible by Condoleezza
Rice, in the dock. Talk about playing party politics with national security.
Martin Scheinin, the United Nations special investigator for human rights,
claims that senior figures, including former vice president Dick Cheney,
could face prosecution overseas. Ponder that - once you have got over the
difficulty of locating the United Nations and human rights within the same
President Pantywaist Obama should have thought twice before sitting down to
play poker with Dick Cheney. The former vice president believes documents
have been selectively published and that releasing more will prove how
effective the interrogation techniques were. Under Dubya's administration,
there was no further atrocity on American soil after 9/11.
President Pantywaist's recent world tour, cosying up to all the bad guys,
excited the ambitions of America's enemies. Here, they realised, is a sucker
they can really take to the cleaners. His only enemies are fellow Americans.
Which prompts the question: why does President Pantywaist hate America so
Without our military nothing else of our country will remain.
