It is time for Obama to get real on Terrorism

By: Derek Varsalona

I wonder if President Obama and his administration are living in a dream world, where everything is okay, or if they are just clueless to ISIS and international terrorism? After admitting that there are numerous internet videos posted asking for terrorist attacks on shopping malls the Obama Administration claims that there are no potential terrorist attacks that the administration is aware of. They have brushed off the warnings as rumors.

This is where the Obama Administration is letting America down. They are letting their guard down. Has President Obama learned anything from September 11, 2001? Has President Obama learned anything from September 11, 2012? Most terrorist attacks have some significance in the attack. The attack on the US Consulate in Benghazi, Libya was on the eleventh anniversary of the World Trade Center attack on September 11, 2001. President Obama failed to respond aggressively showing a sign of weakness. What I fear is that there could be a terrorist attack on an American shopping mall on Black Friday, the Friday after Thanksgiving. That is the biggest shopping day of the year and the terrorist already know this. If this is the case I do not think that their will be one attack but multiple malls attacked on Black Friday, same day in the early morning hours when the mall opens. This year Black Friday, will fall on November 27, 2015.

The terrorist already know that President Obama is very weak when it comes to national security and they will use this to their advantage. The terrorist saw no real response from President Obama after the terrorist attacks on the US Consulate in Benghazi. The terrorist will use this to their advantage and strike again when the moment is right. I feel as if the terrorist are telegraphing every move that President Obama makes. They are noticing his lack of understanding that there is evil in this world.

President Barack Obama has tried so hard to be the change agent for this nation. He has tried so hard to get the world to like America and not be a warmonger. You can have any policy you want but at some point, you need to deal with the real world at hand. Your strategy needs to change as the situation changes in order for you to win and be successful. Nevertheless, President Obama is steadfast is his approach to peace and pacifism that he is totally clueless to the world around him. We are less safe now then we were fourteen years ago and the world knows it. America is not as strong today as we were in 200l and President Obama’s lack of leadership makes America less safe.
