Remember the outcry from the Left about the measures used by President George W. Bush to protect America?
The prison at Guantanamo Bay – Still open under Obama. Rendition – Still taking place under Obama. Use of Drones to kill terrorist targets – Used and even accelerated under Obama.
This is video of Charles Krauthammer tonight making the point that Barack Obama’s continuation of the strong measures to protect America is vindication of the policies of George W. Bush and the War on Terror.
Amen. Where is the outcry from the Democrats about these policies now that they are being used by Obama as President?
Here is a discussion this morning about President Barack Obama’s personal involvement in managing a “Kill List” of Terrorists being targeted by the United States. The discussion is based on an extensive article in the New York Times.
I applaud President Obama for going after the terrorists. His personal involvement does not bother me, as it does some. What is bothersome is that liberals seem to have no problem with this from Barack Obama, but just imagine if this had come out about George W. Bush and Dick Cheney? Obama says he wants to be personally involved to take “moral responsibility” for the killings.
Here is video of former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld on CNN where he talked about the use of the phrase, “War on Terror” to describe the struggle the United States is engaged in. Rumsfeld said he did not favor the use of the title, because “terror” is a “technique” – not a physical enemy.
However, before the Left goes gaga over Rumsfeld’s statement, listen all the way to the end, because Rumsfeld identifies the actual enemy – “Radical Islamists.” I’m sure the Left would prefer, “War on Radical Islamists.”
Here is a video report on the man who killed two U.S. servicemen in Germany this week, and wounded two others in an obvious terrorist attack. The attacker – Arid Uka – was heard by witnesses to shout “Allahu Akbar” as he carried out the attack. Yet, the Obama Administration and President Obama himself will not call it what it is based on all appearances – a terrorist act.
That’s because it does not fit their worldview where Islam is a “peaceful religion” that has nothing to do with terrorist acts that continue to happen. They don’t even want to say the word “terrorist,” and certainly not, “War on Terror.”
But burying your head in the sand does not change reality. We just don’t have leadership that wants to face that reality.
Gateway Pundit has more details on the attacker.
