Obama lulled America into false sense of security

Obama declared the war on terrorism over and brought us a kinder, gentler approach:

The US president has instead replaced it with a softer approach stressing “new partnerships” and multilateral diplomacy.

“Our long-term security will not come from our ability to instill fear in other peoples but through our capacity to speak to their hopes,” Mr Obama said in a message introducing a new national security strategy.

In the 52-page document, drawn up after 16 months of deliberations, Mr Obama outlines a much broader set of priorities and methods than Mr Bush’s tightly-focused determination to eradicate Islamism by any means possible and alone if necessary.

“We will always seek to delegitimise the use of terrorism and to isolate those who carry it out,” it states. “Yet this is not a global war against a tactic – terrorism – or a religion – Islam.

“We are at war with a specific network, al-Qaeda, and its terrorist affiliates who support efforts to attack the United States, our allies, and partners.”

Obama lulled this country into a false sense of security:

In his State of the Union address to the American people earlier this year, Barack Obama declared that he was “confident” of achieving “our objective of defeating the core of al-Qaeda”.

Although he acknowledged the need to pursue the “remnants” of the terrorist group and its affiliates, the overall message was clear – al-Qaeda was badly degraded, the tides of war were receding and the US was winning this fight that was no longer even officially a war.

The Boston bombings would appear to present a fundamental challenge to that assessment and once again bring the nagging uncertainty of terrorism back on to the American main street.

When a mentally ill young adult murdered 26 people, Obama responded by seeking punishment for all gun owners. When Muslims kill, we must resist a rush to judgment as to motives:

PRESIDENT OBAMA: In this age of instant reporting and tweets and blogs, there’s a temptation to latch on to any bit of information, sometimes to jump to conclusions. But when a tragedy like this happens, with public safety at risk and the stakes so high, it’s important that we do this right. That’s why we have investigations. That’s why we relentlessly gather the facts. That’s why we have courts. And that’s why we take care not to rush to judgment — not about the motivations of these individuals; certainly not about entire groups of people.

Obama wanted to try Gitmo detainees in civilian courts yet denied Dzhokhar Tsarnaev his Miranda rights.

The Feds made a decision not to grant Tsarnaev his Miranda rights invoking a special rule:

The exception, according to the FBI‘s website, “permits law enforcement to engage in a limited and focused unwarned interrogation and allows the government to introduce the statement as direct evidence.”

Left wing websites which would have torn George Bush to shreds fell over themselves defending Obama:

The Public Safety Exemption Is Real

As the Court emphasized, this exemption is “narrow.” It permits police to ask a limited range of questions for the purpose of removing any imminent threats. It does not permit wide-ranging questions intended to build a case against the suspect.

Prosecution of Tsarnaev holds the possibility that he could skate on the technicality. If that happens, Tsarnaev could grant an interview entitled “Guilty as hell, free as a bird— America is a great country,” go on to become a “distinguished professor” at a left wing college and then hold a fund raiser for an up and coming democrat political candidate in his living room. And he too could get to say: “I don’t regret setting bombs. I feel we didn’t do enough.”

Don’t laugh. It’s happened before.

DrJohn has been a health care professional for more than 30 years. In addition to clinical practice he has done extensive research and has published widely with over 70 original articles and abstracts in the peer-reviewed literature. DrJohn is well known in his field and has lectured on every continent except for Antarctica. He has been married to the same wonderful lady for over 30 years and has three kids- two sons, both of whom are attorneys and one daughter on her way into the field of education. DrJohn was brought up with the concept that one can do well if one is prepared to work hard but nothing in life is guaranteed. Except for liberals being foolish.

    Obama wants us to believe that since he has pulverized a couple of high ranking jihadists that AQ is destroyed. Neither he, nor his hencemen, understand the construct of AQ. It is not so much a group as it is an ideology. It is the base, the foundation, of Islam, not of any group. Using Obama’s mindset, had he taken out Hitler, the Japanese would have laid down their arms.

    How do you defeat an enemy when you are unwilling to call them by name? You can’t. And too many buy into the meme that the hatred toward the U.S. comes from our presence in the Middle East yet ignore that there was no U.S. when the Muslims hoards marched across Europe. This is just another wave of a very, very old war.

    this terrorist will be free let to walk back to his alqaeda school,
    OBAMA is thinking of his WORLD IMAGE they burned before,
    he want it back,
    all this interrogation will be for nothing.
    all the deaths will be in vain,
    I can see it dragging to minimize the strong EMOTIONS with time,
    we wont let that happen. we will stay in this time, and be the watcher until justice is done,
    as we are for those who where massacre in BENGHASI, and not been avenged still today,
    as we still have in mind the FORT HOOD MASSACRE, from the terrorist ASSAN still getting paid
    but the military without their PURPLE HEART medal they want and deserve it.
    LESS WE FORGET, never will

    The Federal Public Defender Office said Saturday it will represent Dzhokhar Tsarnaev once charges are filed.
    Another official in Conrad’s office, Charles McGinty, said earlier on Saturday that its attorneys have not spoken to Tsarnaev and will have to be appointed to represent him by a federal judge.
    “That’s why we’re trying to advance the appointment to be as soon as possible,” he said.

    A Justice Department official said the government is invoking the public safety exception to Miranda to question the suspect extensively about other potential explosive devices or accomplices and to gain critical intelligence.

    From DrJohn:

    Prosecution of Tsarnaev holds the possibility that he could skate on the technicality.
    If that happens, Tsarnaev could grant an interview entitled “Guilty as hell, free as a bird— America is a great country.”

    The possibility, DrJ?
    I’d say the set-up of both an Obama-appointed prosecutor AND and Obama-appointed defender makes it a foregone conclusion.

    The following doesn’t explain it, but it sure evidences the Obama trend of assuaging Muslim fundamentalist sensitivities, supporting your hypothesis – Army Special Forces Lt. Colonel Andrew Wood on Benghazi:
    “The security system we were given when we first entered the country was working but from the day we entered, though, the State Department seemed to want to alter or cut back on the security formula we had come up with. I was part of the military security that was there to enhance the security for the embassy,[along with] other security elements from the state department which were eventually removed. I couldn’t answer fully why…”

    Asked why security was weakened, Col. Wood replied that “never to his understanding” was “there ever any reason why security was weakened at the facility. It left us defenseless, and I am at a loss to explain why…I could see with time how the [local extremists] were being trained to strike local interests.

    It seems that vacuous leadership residing in the W.H. is an unimportant fact to the MSM. Without a strong and independent 4th estate the Nation is weakened.

    @This one: President Bush never left us defenseless. I hope you are not thinking the “Arab Spring” has turned out well? We are arming Al Qaeda in Syria and armed them in Benghazi resulting in killing our Ambassador. Obama blew the “Status of Forces” agreement in Iraq resulting in Al Qaeda returning to power. I guess you liberals just cannot see the world without your liberal glasses.

    James Raider It tell me that OBAMA had made a deal with the LIBYAN new LEADER,
    who did not deliver the needed support when the mob came, we where told they flew out of there,
    and it tell me also that THE AMBASSADOR did not know of what the deal meant, because of his demands for help that is 7 times in a period of a few month before 9/11/12, so it tell me there was no other
    security at that time beside the trio of the two SEALS and the other who where told to stay down ,it was close to election remember, he did not want anything to hurt his chances,
    he wanted that win at any price,
    and they went regardless to help because they knew there was no other help
    beside the guards LIBYANS which I think STEVEN must have told them they had gone,
    he surely had no trust in them for having ask for AMERICAN security,
    so it tell me that OBAMA screw up the AMBASSADOR and gave his trust to the LIBYAN LEADER who did not want AMERICAN security, and OBAMA agreed,
    regardless of having been told of the danger in each of those demands, STEVEN was even denied help from the SEALS by OBAMA, who is the chief responsible, no matter who in the department
    didn’t do his job , he had orders from the WHITE HOUSE, in his work, so the WHITE HOUSE is
    the responsible in it,
    hey 7 demands, and not one answered,
    HILARY said it,
    what difference does it make, only 4 dead and about those 30 who are kept under secret,
    they owe their lives to the SEALS and the other one,
    is in it worth a revealing of what they know,

    No such thing as “Miranda Rights” There’s a Miranda Warning ABOUT rights. Worst case is that a confession would not be admitted. But, since the Feds don’t NEED a confession, the guy won’t walk simply because of a lack of a Miranda warning.

    Arthur Kimes
    yes and they don’t even need a confession, it’s all there,
    in the open, an officer dead another wounded shot and all the bombs they had
    till the end, cold blood shot on the dead officer in his car from the back,
    they found more handmade ieds, they both where loaded to kill as many as they could,
    no more words needed, hope they don’t dragg it like the ASSAD killer,

    The problem is that so many in America want to be lulled. King finally wakes up and makes an intelligent statement and Finestein essentially accuses him of not being nice. And to the Dr. Seuss raised generation there is NOTHING worse than not “being nice”.
