In response to Obama is the man who doesn’t WANT to have a plan:
Tuesday, British Prime Minister David Cameron strongly condemned ISIS, calling their latest atrocity – the beheading of journalist Steven Sotloff – ‘an absolutely disgusting and despicable act’.
He said he will chair a COBR meeting on the threat to a UK citizen tomorrow, and added: ‘My thoughts and prayers are with Mr Sotloff’s family and friends tonight as they deal with this appalling and tragic situation.’
The US president, on the other hand, left for Andrews Air Force Base en route to a NATO Summit in Wales – without bothering to say a thing about the Sotloff beheading.
Obama did manage to lash out at his sworn enemies during his Labor Day speech before the heavily pro-union crowd gathered at Milwaukee’s Laborfest, Monday.
President Barack Obama used his Labor Day speech on Monday to slam Republicans for opposing an increase in the minimum wage, equal pay for women, affordable health care and more.
“Republicans in Congress love to say ‘no.’ Those are just facts, they’re facts of life. They say ‘no’ to everything,” Obama said.
Obama traveled to Wisconsin on Air Force One with Secretary of Labor Tom Perez and several labor union leaders, according to White House press pool reports.
Also, according to the WSJ, the president is enraged at Israel – the country that has “just been hit by several thousand unguided rockets and 30-odd terror tunnels, a 50-day war, the forced closure of its one major airport, accusations of “genocide” by Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, anti-Semitic protests throughout Europe, and general condemnation across the world.”
Israel’s atrocities include defending itself against terrorist attacks and insulting Obama’s hapless, buffoonish Sec. of State. Not quite on the level of the raping, pillaging, crucifying, head chopping, genocidal ISIS – but enough to get Obama’s dander up.
Barack Obama “has become ‘enraged’ at the Israeli government, both for its actions and for its treatment of his chief diplomat, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry. “
So reports the Jerusalem Post, based on the testimony of Martin Indyk, until recently a special Middle East envoy for the president. The war in Gaza, Mr. Indyk adds, has had “a very negative impact” on Jerusalem’s relations with Washington.
Think about this. Enraged. Not “alarmed” or “concerned” or “irritated” or even “angered.” Anger is a feeling. Rage is a frenzy. Anger passes. Rage feeds on itself. Anger is specific. Rage is obsessional, neurotic.And Mr. Obama–No Drama Obama, the president who prides himself on his cool, a man whose emotional detachment is said to explain his intellectual strength–is enraged.
But back to ISIS – Let’s not forget who helped them gain their current strength as they fought with Syrian rebels to topple the Assad Regime.. Obama did more than just stand by for several years while the Islamic State took root.
In co-operation with Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar, the Obama administration assisted the rebel, jihadi infested opposition in Syria.
The Obama administration has never publicly admitted to its role in creating what the CIA calls a ‘rat line’, a back channel highway into Syria. The rat line, authorised in early 2012, was used to funnel weapons and ammunition from Libya via southern Turkey and across the Syrian border to the opposition. Many of those in Syria who ultimately received the weapons were jihadists, some of them affiliated with al-Qaida.
And now there are reports that there are ISIS terror cells here in the United States and they’re capable of striking.
