Americans Are In For A Shock, ‘Eh?

According to Obama administration officials and USA Today, Americans will be shocked when they see the results of some internal reports regarding the Crotchbomber:

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.

Oh yes, because Americans have been horribly naive about threats we face while President Obama and his lackeys are informed and had just the right perspective on this “man-made disasters” thingy. No, I think it’s the administration who is shocked. Why wouldn’t they be? They campaigned on softening the stance against man-made disasters and their approach was anything but realistic. From A.J. Strata:

This dialing back on the sensitivity of our responses was openly discussed by John Brennan during the campaign (a Bush era reject from the intel community who couldn’t follow orders and thought he knew better than everyone else). He was slated to be the head of the CIA until the looney left torpedoed his nomination bid. But he is a central advisor to then candidate and now President Obama. We see again the White House vetted its people to the rigor of a White House dinner guest list.

Brennan is probably at the center of the latest National Intelligence Strategy — the guiding bible for the dot-connectors at DNI and the National Counterterrorism Center (NCTC). A strategy replete with distractions that are supposed to be handled by other government organizations:

Recall, we are supposed to be monitoring threats and defending ourselves. … There is violent extremists (a.k.a terrorists), insurgents and transnational criminals — all good targets.

But then things get weird. We find challenges such as ‘global economic crisis‘, ‘failed states and ungoverned spaces‘, ‘climate change and energy competition‘, ‘rapid technology change’ and ‘Pandemic Disease (H1N1)‘.

There are no terrorists at the North Pole plotting as the ice melts and refreeze. While providing scientists with detailed polar images we snap automatically every day is not much of a drain on our resources, the fact someone is checking those images to make sure they are not accidentally revealing national secrets means they are not sifting data for possible real threats. Each meeting on H1N1 at DNI was a meeting not watching for threats.

But in Obama’s world, a warm day is more of a threat than a bomb that can halt travel, disrupt the world’s precarious economy and escalate a war.

The American people will be shocked? I don’t think so anymore. The American people so the President lounge his way through the attack so as not disrupt his Christmas vacation. They have heard the inane babblings of Janet Napolitano on behalf of the President. They suffer through the new, civil liberties killing TSA rules while terrorists will skate through due to political correctness.

Insisting that America doesn’t have enemies. Insisting that President Bush was evil and made things up to scare people. Insisting that Guantanamo created terrorists. All these foolish notions created the foundation of President Obama’s stance on man-made disasters. He can’t even say the word terrorism without sounding tremulous and weak. All that good vibe he accumulated could be lost! Oh no! The world loves Barack Obama! Heaven forbid they actually hear him utter a true word.

Americans aren’t shocked. They’re dismayed. They actually believed President Obama was smart enough to know what he was doing as Commander-In-Chief. It’s clear that he doesn’t. It’s not shocking. It’s just more than a little scary.

Americans knew we still fought an enemy. They figured the President knew that, too. They figured wrong.
