Obama Terrorist Security Works? Mr. Obama, You Are No Winston Churchill

Winston Churchill
As President Obama lieua’s in Hawaii, Carol Platt Liebau of Townhall comments on the Obama administration’s disturbing response to the terrorist attack on Northwest Airlines flight #253 on Christmas day by Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, a 23-year old Nigerian with ties to al Qaeda.

As reported by CNN Umaru Abdul Mutallab, the father of the terrorist, contacted the Nigerian U.S. Embassy saying his son had "become radicalized. The father also told the U.S. Embassy in Nigeria that he had concerns his son was “planning” something. Mutallab's information about his son was forwarded to the National Counter-Terrorism Center, and Abdulmutallab was added to a general watch list, a senior Obama administration official said. But the official said "the info on him was not deemed specific enough to pull his visa or put him on a no-fly list."

So how was Abdulmutallab's terrorist attack thwarted? Jasper Schuringa, a passenger on flight #253 with Abdulmutallab, subdued him, stripped off Abdulmutallab's clothes to ensure he had no other explosives and then handcuffed the terrorist attacker with the help of a crew member.

So here is a case where a father informs the Obama administration that his son has become radicalized, has ties to al Qaeda and his father also tells the U.S. embassy in Nigeria that his son is planning something. And the best the Obama administration does is put the son on a general watch list? What’s even more disturbing, as mentioned by Ms. Liebau, is that not only did the Obama administration NOT put Mr. Abdulmutallab on a ‘no-fly” list, the Obama administration actually thinks they did something to prevent the attack! Please see in the attached video of Obama’s fearless Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano who actually has the gall to say that the result of the Northwest Airline terrorist attack showed that the Obama administration's security system “worked”. Worked! What worked is that Mr. Schuringa, a passenger on the plane, did Mr.Obama and Ms. Napolitano’s job for them.

The Obama administration’s national security incompetence, impotence, political correctness with Muslims or all of the above contributing to compromising America and the world’s national security is alarming and dangerous.

It couldn’t be said better by Roger Simon, who writes in Pajamas Media the following about the Obama administration’s refusal to even recognize a world war on terror.

“Oh, I forgot, Janet. There’s no such thing as terrorism in your parlance. There’s probably no such thing to you as Radical Islam either. It’s all lost in some haze of reactionary political correctness. Problem is we are surrounded by Radical Islamic Terrorists (they’re the only ones who ever seem to blow up planes or mass murder our troops right on their bases) and you are totally unqualified to defend us from them. You don’t even think they exist.
But perhaps you are a perfect match for our reactionary narcissist president who continues to say not a word as the brave demonstrators in Iran again risk their lives to overcome their brutal Islamic regime. What’s interesting about Obama and Napolitano is that they pretend to be “progressive,” but they are actually heartless.”

Mr. Simon’s comments and the Obama administration’s painfully weak stance on terror , their recent show of incompetence and Mr. Obama's foolish empathy for terrorists are echoed by Mr. Obama himself in a speech on 9/19/01, just a week after the 9/11 attacks, when he said

"A fundamental absence of empathy on the part of the terrorists". How did the U.S. ever elect into it's highest office in the land such a dangerous man who is so overtly concerned about being empathetic towards America's enemies.

Compare Mr. Obama’s "empathetic" remarks for the 9/11 terrorists with those of Winston Churchill’s first remarks as British Prime Minister 70 years ago in the House of Commons,
“Victory at all costs, victory in spite of all terror, victory however long and hard the road may be; for without victory there is no survival”.

Mr. Obama, you certainly are no Winston Churchill.
