I sure do.
“We are focused on terrorists and Al Qaeda is on the run”
The wars are nearly over:
“This war, like all wars, must end. That’s what history advises …”
As of November 1, 2012 Obama had assured that Al Qaeda is all but defeated- 32 times:
(CNSNews.com) – President Barack Obama has described al Qaeda as having been “decimated,” “on the path to defeat” or some other variation at least 32 times since the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, according to White House transcripts.
This comes despite Libyan President Mohamed Yousef El-Magarief, members of Congress, an administration spokesperson, and several press reports suggesting that al Qaeda played a role in the attack.
Recently, on Nov. 1 in Green Bay, Wis., Obama said, “Thanks to sacrifice and service of our brave men and women in uniform, the war in Iraq is over, the war in Afghanistan is winding down, al Qaeda has been decimated, Osama bin Laden is dead.”
and he goes on
One day after the Benghazi attack that occurred on the 11th anniversary of 9/11, Obama spoke at a campaign event in Las Vegas on Sept. 12.
“A day after 9/11, we are reminded that a new tower rises above the New York skyline, but al Qaeda is on the path to defeat and bin Laden is dead,” Obama said in Las Vegas.
On Sept. 13 in Golden, Colo., Obama said, “Four years ago, I promised to end the war in Iraq — and we did. I said we’d wind down the war in Afghanistan — and we are. And while a new tower rises above the New York skyline, al Qaeda is on the path to defeat, and Osama bin Laden is dead.” He repeated that line again on Sept. 17 in Cincinnati and again that day in Columbus, Ohio.
Al Qaeda is not just on the run, it’s decimated:
The next day at a fundraising event at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in New York, Obama brought up the first 9/11 and used “decimated,” indicating past tense.
“We’ve got choices about war and peace,” Obama said. “I ended the war in Iraq, as I promised. We are transitioning out of Afghanistan. We have gone after the terrorists who actually attacked us 9/11 and decimated al Qaeda.”
These assurances from Obama are worth what “you can keep your plan”, “you can keep your doctor” and “your rates will go down 3000%” are worth.
That is to say, they’re worth nothing.
Today’s Drudge headlines:
QAEDA RISES AGAIN…
STATE DEPT ISSUES WORLDWIDE TRAVEL ALERT…
U.S. EMBASSIES ACROSS MIDDLE EAST TO SHUT DOWN SUNDAY…
The State Department has issued a worldwide travel alert for all of August:
The State Department has issued a worldwide travel alert because of the threat terrorist attacks from al-Qaida and affiliated organizations, it said Friday.
The State Department cited the potential for terrorist attacks in the Middle East, North Africa, and the Arabian Peninsula.
“Current information suggests that al-Qaida and affiliated organizations continue to plan terrorist attacks both in the region and beyond, and that they may focus efforts to conduct attacks in the period between now and the end of August,” the department said in a statement.
The department said that the alert does not expire until Aug. 31.
Embassies are being shut down all over the world:
The United States will temporarily shut down its embassies and consulates around the world Sunday — including those in Iraq, Afghanistan and Egypt — as a precautionary measure over terror-related concerns, State Department officials said.
State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf did not say how long the international installations would stay closed — only that the decision was taken “out of an abundance of caution and care for our employees and others who may be visiting.” Officials would not describe the nature of the threat.
All of this because of the threat of an enemy who has been “decimated”????? WTF? I am all for being cautious but how can any of this be necessary to protect us from an enemy who all but defeated?
Bin Laden may be dead but Al Qaeda is very much alive and Barack Obama is a stinking liar. It’s doubtful that anything he says is trustworthy.
Strong letter to follow.
