HE STILL CAN'T SAY IT. EXTREMIST? TERRORIST!

According to the president's statement of the last few minutes this near tragedy was the act of an extremist. He still refuses to use the work terrorist because that would imply we are at war and he really can't wrap his mind around that fact. This is not a criminal problem, robbers and burglars are criminals. People who try to detonate a bomb while a passenger on a plane with nearly three hundred people on board are terrorists. Terrorists, not extremists.

Oh and by the way, someone made a mistake and he's going to correct it. I'm sure those reviews will fix the problem. Gibbs today stated that the terrorist was lost on the lists because there are over 500,000 on the "watch list." This brings up a question. If they can't keep track of a "watch list" full of terrorists, how in the hell will they keep track of over 70 million people enrolled in government health care?

And not only is he a criminal he can't be treated like a terrorist and turned over to the CIA or FBI for interrigation because he now has the same rights as an American citizen. Oh and by the way maybe that will also change with the signing of Executive Order 12425 deleting the amendments Reagen place on it to protect US Citizens.....stay well...

Tapline...you are giving me an ulcer!

Law and Order; not only did Obama call him an 'isolated extremist', he then went on to add "...and we're going to get everybody responsible" which IS IT?

We are in the hands of kindergarteners and it's getting scary...did you see his defense of Napolitano? MASTERFUL PR. Man, they are smoooth.

by the way, they're saying now that at least 2 of the people backing this "isolated extremist" were released from Gitmo....FOX was on it immediately...CNN hadn't mentioned it as of noon LA time.
Truth can't go against their "close Gitmo" agenda, dontchaknow.

Tap,
Thanks for the visit. As usual you are on top of things, Tap. I am amazed at the feeling that these people are criminals the same as robbers and burglars. We don't want to get the war thing.

Z,
Obama has painted himself into a corner with his appointments of political hacks. He and his advisors are in over their heads and they now know that they have precious little help for the people they appointed as supposed experts. Tough spot for us.

I have absolutely no problem in calling these people "terrorists" or our struggle against them a "war". All I ask is that we (Democrats and Republicans) be smart about it. The 2 words that come to my mind are surgical and containment. Surgical, in that we simply cannot afford to make the problem worse (via excessive collateral damage, extended periods of occupation, etc.) and, yes, containment, in that we are NEVER going to be able to eliminate the threat completely. My preference would be to use intelligence, technology, special ops, and limited air power. Sometimes the lighter the footprint, the better.

Law and Order Teacher said...

WH,
Your point is well taken. I'm all for a light footprint, but it has to be powerful enough to accomplish the mission. I don't know all that much about special ops, but anything to make it easier on grunts is a good thing. Thanks for the visit.

Oh yeah.

All those nimrods who want Gubmint-Run ObamaKare -- you have NO idea what you'll get.

Let me suggest: all the courage, courtesy, efficiency, motivation, consideration and forward-thinking of your local DMV.

It's kind of like a cancer, LaOT. We need to kill the cancer, without damaging the rest of the body. Easier said than done, I know.

Law and Order Teacher said...

BZ, WH,
I agree with your statements. The problem is can you kill the cancer without killing the body? Great Question.

Obama should not have trouble saying "Extremist"...he and his staff are that very thing.
