APPARENTLY AL QAEDA DIDN’T GET THE MEMO
When the Regime announced last week that “The war on terror is over,” I wondered to myself, “Could this be the O-man’s ‘Mission Accomplished’ moment?” I also wondered what could possibly be the upside of making such a statement? Given that every terrorist attack against the United States post-9/11 has been thwarted, where was the possible political gain?
The only two “logical” answers are these: Obama’s election-year desire to give the appearance of having ended terrorism as we know it – and his continued obsession with doing anything and everything to convince Muslims around the world that he’s their pal. I’m willing to consider other alternatives, Obamanites.
The downside, of course, is that any plot – foiled or carried out – is a direct contradiction to O’s “Mission Accomplished” equivalency. While Barack Obama may believe the war on terror is over, unfortunately, al Qaeda didn’t get the memo.
The CIA’s thwarting of an ambitious plot by al-Qaeda of Yemen to destroy a U.S.-bound airliner using a bomb with a sophisticated new design – coinciding with the first anniversary of the killing of Osama bin Laden – makes the point. While the O-man runs around the world gloating over his role in the death of bin Laden and the Regime announces a “post-al Qaeda world” and the end of the war on terror, al Qaeda sees it differently.
Just last week, an article in al Qaeda’s Inspire magazine called for a massive firebomb campaign in the U.S. – complete with instructions for constructing remote-controlled explosives designed to set off ember bombs in U.S. forests:
“In America, there are more houses built in the [countryside] than in the cities. It is difficult to choose a better place [than] in the valleys of Montana.”
Apparently the terrorists’ magazine of choice failed to get the memo too, O.
The new underwear plot involved an upgrade to the bomb that failed to detonate aboard a jetliner over Detroit on Christmas Day, 2009. This new bomb was also designed to be used in a passenger’s underwear, but this time al-Qaeda developed a more refined detonation system, according to U.S. officials.
The plan was uncovered even as the Regime assured Americans that it knew of no al-Qaeda plots against the U.S. coinciding with the anniversary of bin Laden’s death.
Obama-shill AP learned of the plot last week but agreed to Regime requests not to publish it immediately – because “the sensitive intelligence operation was still under way.” Translation: Disclosure of the plot would have embarrassed the O-man, who was running around the world at the time gloating over his role in the death of bin Laden. It would have also made the “war on terror is over” statement look even more foolish than it does this week.
Funny – the loons on the left have mercilessly attacked George Bush for the “Mission Accomplished” banner for nine years; in fact they’ve used it to defend the O-man’s bin Laden gloatathon. The reality, of course, is that the Navy placed that banner aboard the USS Abraham Lincoln – as a surprise display of gratitude to President Bush for his commitment to destroy al Qaeda and bring those to justice who had perpetrated the worst attack on America in history.
Pathetically, Barack Hussein Obama last week tried to claim that goal as his own.
If the war on terror is over, who are we killing with drone strikes, O? Facts are stubborn things; they so often get in the way of politics, huh?
