Blah, blah, blah, went Barry-O, ever so brainlessly, just parroting whatever the Guy Behind the Curtain told him to say. Little did he realize what he was talking about.
He lauded the victims as ‘part of a long line of patriots who have made great sacrifices for their fellow citizens and for our way of life’.
Yet the previous day he had blasted ‘systemic failures’ in the CIA and other U.S. intelligence agencies for failing to prevent the Christmas Day syringe bomb attack.
This pissed off the CIA, which has already been attacked previously by the Obamacrat Reich, which, I believe, views the agency as pawns to be used and abused for political reasons.
‘One day the President is pointing the finger and blaming the intelligence services, saying there is a systemic failure,’ said one agency official. ‘Now we are heroes. The fact is that we are doing everything humanly possible to stay on top of the security situation. The deaths of our operatives shows just how involved we are on the ground.’Nice going, Mr. Perfect and Wonderful. Wrongly blaming the CIA for the failure of the National Counterterrorism Center, to whom the warning was sent by the CIA, and who were responsible for doing their job, which they apparently didn't.
(...) CIA officials say the data was sent to the US National Counterterrorism Centre in Washington, which was set up after the 9/11 attacks as a clearing house where raw data should be analysed.
I'd say there's also a failure on the part of the Obamacrat Reich to do their job and make sure the NCTC does its own. Apparently they didn't bother to do this. Fault: Obamacrat Reich. Another fail.
Or perhaps they did, and provided the intel to Obama. And perhaps Obama himself did nothing. Who knows?
