Obama systemic failure, Gitmo connection, Janet Napolitano system worked well, al Qaeda plot, Gitmo terrorists released, Guantanamo detainees military commanders

Months ago, Barack Obama promised to close Gitmo and criticized the “torture” of detainees.

From USA Today December 15, 2009.

“Security concerns hang over Gitmo inmates’ move to Ill”

“President Obama’s announcement that the government will send as many as 100 terrorism suspects from Guantanamo Bay to an Illinois prison raised questions and sparked protests Tuesday over whether the new lockup will pose a security risk.
 
In a letter to Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn, top administration officials including Defense Secretary Robert Gates called the plan “part of the president’s aggressive posture in the fight against al-Qaeda.”

The decision to buy a nearly vacant state prison in Thomson, Ill., to house alleged terrorists is the latest step in Obama’s effort to close the Guantanamo detention center, a symbol for detainee abuses under George W. Bush.”

“Critics were unmoved by the assurances. Liz Cheney, daughter of the former vice president and an official with the conservative group Keep America Safe, said voters didn’t elect Obama to “usher terrorists onto the homeland and call it a jobs program.”

Debra Burlingame, whose brother was the pilot of the hijacked plane that crashed into the Pentagon on 9/11, said Obama is “playing into the hands of the jihadist propaganda” by closing Guantanamo.”
“Of those still at Guantanamo, the Pentagon says about 95 are slated to be returned to their own or other countries, five will be tried in New York, and five tried before military commissions. Most of the remaining 100 or so would be sent to Thomson, either to be held indefinitely or tried by military tribunals.”

Nine days before Christmas, December 16, 2009, Senator Mitch McConnell had this to say about Obama’s Gitmo strategy.

Today, December 29, 2009, Obama stated that there had been systemic failures in our national security system.

From the NY Times, December 29, 2009.

“On the White House: A Phrase Sets Off Sniping After a Crisis”

“Making his second public statement on the matter in as many days, Mr. Obama said a preliminary assessment already has made clear that there was a breakdown in the intelligence review system that did not properly identify the suspect as a dangerous extremist who should have been prevented from flying to the United States.
“A systemic failure has occurred and I consider that totally unacceptable,” Mr. Obama told reporters here in Hawaii, where is in the middle of a 10-day holiday vacation. The president said he has ordered government agencies to report back to him on Thursday about what happened and said he would “insist on accountability at every level,” although he did not elaborate.”

:The president suggested that he would overhaul the nation’s watch-list system. “We’ve achieved much since 9/11 in terms of collecting information that relates to terrorists and potential terrorist attacks,” he said. “But it’s becoming clear that the system that has been in place for years now is not sufficiently up to date to take full advantage of the information we collect and the knowledge we have.””

““It now appears that weeks ago this information was passed to a component of our intelligence community but was not effectively distributed so as to get the suspect’s name on a no-fly list,” Mr. Obama said of the father’s warning. “There appears to be other deficiencies as well. Even without this one report, there were bits of information available within the intelligence community that could have and should have been pieced together.””

In typical Obama fashion, he laid blame on the past:

“But it’s becoming clear that the system that has been in place for years now is not sufficiently up to date to take full advantage of the information we collect and the knowledge we have.”

And Obama made no mention of the Gitmo connection to the terrorist plot.

From ABC News, December 28, 2009.

“Two al Qaeda Leaders Behind Northwest Flight 253 Terror Plot Were Released by U.S.”

“Two of the four leaders allegedly behind the al Qaeda plot to blow up a Northwest Airlines passenger jet over Detroit were released by the U.S. from the Guantanamo prison in November 2007, according to American officials and Department of Defense documents. Al Qaeda claimed responsibility for the Northwest bombing in a Monday statement that vowed more attacks on Americans.

American officials agreed to send the two terrorists from Guantanamo to Saudi Arabia, where they entered into an “art therapy rehabilitation program” and were set free, according to U.S. and Saudi officials. ABC News described their enrollment in the art therapy program in a January report. (See video to the left.)

Guantanamo prisoner #333, Muhamad Attik al-Harbi, and prisoner #372, Said Ali Shari, were sent to Saudi Arabia on Nov. 9, 2007, according to the Defense Department log of detainees who were released from American custody. Al-Harbi has since changed his name to Muhamad al-Awfi.

Both Saudi nationals have since emerged in leadership roles in Yemen, according to U.S. officials and the men’s own statements on al Qaeda propaganda tapes.

Both of the former Guantanamo detainees are described as military commanders and appear on a January, 2009 video along with the man described as the top leader of al Qaeda in Yemen, Abu Basir Naser al-Wahishi, formerly Osama bin Laden’s personal secretary.”

  1. Given these broader rights to Interpol, along with the EPA arming itself & the following link regarding Interpol AND the environment, I’m not comfortable:

  2. What I was saying before is this, I have a difficult time thinking that the Don guy has honest stuff, period. He’s way, way out there.

    And I also consulted with a true photographer who said that it’s impossible to figure those pictures out from the Internet, that he needed to study the original photos. So I don’t hold much truth to that Don guy, Nicola, or whatever his name is.

  3. @ d2i:

    Thank you very much for that explanation. I am having a very hard time understanding how this obvious terrorist was not detected by the “alleged system” of the USA.

    —————

    So what do you guys think of 2010 in terms of possible events? I have a very shakey feeling about it. I don’t see how we go from this point without some significant things occurring. One of things, I believe, is that Israel will be forced to take drastic action against Iran, and that the muslim squatting in the white house is going to screw up so badly that there is no telling what the result may be.

  4. Dang – SO much to cover, SO little time. There aren’t enough hours in the day to try to figure out all the things that are going on!

    Joy Behar: Sarah Palin’s ‘Base Doesn’t Even Read’

    By Colleen Raezler
    December 29, 2009 – 10:18 ET

    Joy Behar expressed confusion about the success of Sarah Palin’s book because, according to the CNN Headline News/ABC talk show host, a lot of the former governor’s “base doesn’t even read.”

    Behar slammed Palin, as well as Glenn Beck, Carrie Prejean and other conservatives during her “look back at 2009″ edition of the “Joy Behar Show” that re-aired over Christmas weekend.

    An “esteemed” panel consisting of comedians Sandra Bernhard, Mo Rocca and Dave Attell joined Behar in mocking this year’s prominent voices on the right.
    Story Continues Below Ad ↓

    Bernhard claimed that people who bought Palin’s book “like to look at pictures. There’s only one on the cover, but they like to look at that picture.”

    Earlier in the conversation Bernhard and Behar both claimed Palin “never makes sense.” Behar also stated, about the possibility of Palin running for president in 2012, “maybe her and Glenn Beck on the same ticket. Down the toilet, it would be great for the Democrats.”

    As for Beck, Behar claimed he was an “idiot” for stating his belief that President Obama is a racist and that Beck is “kind of paranoid” and “makes people paranoid and scared.”

    Behar also explained who can and cannot be considered racist. “You cannot be racist unless you’re from the oppressed, the oppressive class,” she told her panel. “The class that is oppressed is never racist.”

    Beyond Bernhard telling the panel that she’s “still trying to keep [her] food down” after hearing Carrie Prejean’s view on same-sex marriage, most of the slams toward the former Miss California focused on the racy home video of the beauty queen that was released last month.

    After Behar claimed “there’s no STDs involved” with a solo sex video, which is what the video of Prejean reportedly is, Bernhard “begged to differ” and insisted, “She might, in her bathroom, there might be some STDs floating around.”

    “She lost her crown years ago,” quipped Mo Rocca.

    Beck, Palin and Prejean weren’t the only conservatives ridiculed on Behar’s show. The panel also disparaged the hundreds of thousands of American citizens who throughout the year expressed anger at the government.

    After making the sophomoric “teabagger” jokes that are now ubiquitous in mainstream media’s discussions about the tea parties, Bernhard explained the tea party dress code to Mo Rocca.

    “You need to wear like a faded, acid-washed jean and some sort of American flag, you know, themed t-shirt, basically,” she said.

    Perhaps these comedians could use the gift of new joke books in the New Year.

  6. All systems worked well? Well almost worked WELL if you are working for the Muslim Jihadi Terrorists

  7. If there is a system in place that worked for seven and a half years and you start removing restriction after restriction to please ACLU, the Radical Left and minions in your party, It will fail. Obama could find no way to blame President George Bush directly for this failure after he (Obama) has gutted everything that was in place prior to January 20, 2009 and had worked while Bush was in Office. Now he considers it out of date, it’s not out of date, he screwed everything up, so we would be attacked. The Muslim needs arrested or sent back to Kenya!! and take his cabinet with him. I am sure most will disagree with me, but I blame George Bush SR., for the things that went all to hell after panel investigated 9/11. George Jr. & George Sr. had quiet a falling out which went on for some time and suddenly it seems that Jr was walking around in shackles for quite some time. Will try to locate articles pertaining to this. The last year of his Presidency, his hands were tied.

  8. Has any one noticed how Barry has his wrest together when he is going down the steps of Airforce 1 ? I had a dream last night that he had HANDCUFFS on being let down the steps with several people! I can only pray!

  9. kittycat77 – when I first read Don’s work I had the same reaction. No question. I read it over a year ago.

    For whatever reason I wandered back over to re read the series a couple of months ago and found myself more comfortable with the material. Maybe it’s after a year of learning even crazier things. Who knows. But these days I keep my mind open b/c anything is possible.

    Administration sees ‘some linkage’ between Detroit suspect, al-Qaeda

    President Obama and his top advisers received new information Monday night about the attempted airliner attack in Detroit that has led them to believe there is “some linkage” with al-Qaeda, a senior administration official said Tuesday. The official said the president and his top advisers are “increasingly confident” that Al Qaeda was involved in the attempted attacker’s plans.

    Well, you can buy it if you want, but I sure don’t. It’s good to keep and open mind of things in figuring things out, which again, I don’t buy what he’s saying. I think the guy is way out there, even to the extent of planting just false info for some reason or another.

  24. I saw Obama on the national news tonight, I could not believe it. He was reporting material we knew 4 days ago. I think someone must have advised him, on vacation, out to lunch, golfing, running home for a small child who had a small childhood accident. Not looking too good. He is such a dufus, more and more are coming to this realization-def: informal chiefly US a slow-witted or stupid person. He is still having “issues” with George Bush? Get a psychiatrist, or get over it.

  25. d2i,
    I’ve been busy reading your links, very interesting.
    Thanks a bunch.
    I too always try to keep an open mind, it wards off brainwashing. I think there are those who may make judgments based on political/religious affiliations, then use Alinsky’s “label the source a nut” just because they don’t like what was found out (yes, Patriots do it too) Don Nicoloff is far from being a nut case, quite an intelligent man, if you listen to his show and read his articles. Oh well, people are funny aren’t they.

  34. I think Obama and the Dems made a gigantic tactical error in making national security a political football, especially with our country at war and on so many fronts-with one common enemy-the word he fears to say Islamic terrorists-ok two words. It should have been priority number one, with a clear plan. He put Nobel prizes, Copenhagen, Olympics, a terrible health care plan, golf, partying,schmoozing, etc. far far far ahead of national security. Now the country is paying the price for his inept world view.

  41. Michelle,

    George Bush had his faults i admit, but we all had the assurance that he was truly trying to protect the United States.

    We all took comfort knowing we had a legitimate President in the executive branch.

    Now what do we have ??

    Oh just a little emotion of being a bunch of fish in a barrel right ? Just the Presidency hijacked by a Muslim extremist ! (Gangs of New York movie, or worse)

    Where are the government watch dogs ? For a hundred grand, anyone could do a better job of investigating this usurpation.

    I think what’s needed is, someone to draft out a complete summary of the known facts about Barry, presenting all facts and questions, and reproduce this summary, and send it to all in authority.

    They must get the info sooner. This BASTARD can not get away with this.

  42. Let’s hope when he is forced to remove her, Janet spills the beans!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    4. Senator Jim DeMint Steps Up Again to Lead. McClatchy Newspapers Cries.

    McClatchy Newspapers is the alleged “news” organization that runs terrorist propaganda out of Iraq as legitimate news. It’s Washington editor tried very hard to push local McClatchy reporters in North Carolina to write damaging stories on Blackwater. It hired anonymous Iraqis during the Iraq War to write lots of unverifiable stories about the horrors of American soldiers.

    Today, in another example of its bias, its national news feed runs the headline Who’s running the TSA? No one, thanks to Sen. Jim DeMint.

    Compare that to the Washington Post, which ran the identical story with the headline “Republican senator DeMint holds up nomination for TSA chief”.

    The McClatchy headline is not even true. In fact, it is objectively a lie.

  74. ““But it’s becoming clear that the system that has been in place for years now is not sufficiently up to date to take full advantage of the information we collect and the knowledge we have.”

    Well, you’ve had a year, Mr. Prez to review and make changes, did you really need a threat to our nation to conduct this review or does leadership mean heading off situations before they happen, having foresight?

    And I agree with McConnell, if the issue about gitmo is that it’s a magnet of attraction to recruit, changing the address isn’t fooling people who managed to subvert our national security and fly planes into buildings. Seems they’re a bit more on the ball than that, Mr. Prez.

    I suppose if I were a muslim radical who got elected president and wanted to destroy America, I would act/not act the way BO has thus destroying America from within.

    Don’t forget that for muslims, the ends justifies the means, so lying is not seen as an indiscretion but a means to a greater end. Robert Spencer has a great book, The Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam. Read it several years ago and the foundations are simple from islam to infidels: convert, subjugate or die.

  75. Sound familiar, anyone???

    Brussels economists claim Britain will ‘need’ 56 million immigrant workers between them by 2050 to make up for the ‘demographic decline’ due to falling birth rates and rising death rates across Europe.” To offset this decline, a “blue card” system is to be created that will allow cardholders to travel freely within the European Union with full rights to work — as well as the full right to collect welfare benefits.

    “Some people call it profiling, but I call it common-sense screening, and that’s what we need to do,” says King. “When the FBI went after the mafia, they investigated Italian groups. When they investigated the IRA, they went to Irish bars. If you’re looking for the Ku Klux Klan, you don’t go to Harlem. When you know that nearly 100 percent of the terrorists coming after us are Muslims, you need to put aside political correctness and focus on young males from Middle Eastern countries.

    Never forget……..Of course most Muslims are not violent, Islamic, extremists jihadis, but all violent, Islamic, extremists jihadis are Muslim.

    Former Vice President Dick Cheney accused President Barack Obama on Tuesday of “trying to pretend we are not at war” with terrorists, pointing to the White House response to the attempted sky bombing as reflecting a pattern that includes banishing the term “war on terror” and attempting to close the Guantanamo Bay detention center.
    Dick Cheney: Barack Obama ‘trying to pretend [we aren't at war with terrorists]‘

    http://www.politico.com/news/stories/1209/31054.html

    “[W]e are at war and when President Obama pretends we aren’t, it makes us less safe,” Cheney said in a statement to POLITICO. “Why doesn’t he want to admit we’re at war? It doesn’t fit with the view of the world he brought with him to the Oval Office. It doesn’t fit with what seems to be the goal of his presidency — social transformation — the restructuring of American society.”

  88. Why is the GOP MIA in helping Brown?

  89. Michel Malcom wrote an interesting article on Redcounty.com about theh Detroit incident. Sherman Tank made an interesting response:

    Obama + Napolitano = The Hope Dopes
    There’s an old saying in law, “if you can’t pound the facts, pound a table.” That’s just what the left-wing cry babies are doing. They won’t pound the source of the problems, i.e., Barack Hussein Obama II, so they are reaching into the history books and pounding Bush. They figured it worked during Barack Hussein Obama II’s campaign so it’ll work now. Wrong.

    Warning? or mere precognition? Julian Zelizer, a professor at Princeton University gave an interview to the Financial Times, he said, “If Republicans want hearings into what happened, it could very well raise questions about Bush-era failures and that would be politically dangerous.”

    See http://www.ft.com/cms/s/0/a9747974-f49c-11de-9cba-00144feab49a.html?nclick_check=1

    More to the point is the present Administration’s fundamental failure to understand what the hell they are doing. We’ve got a bunch of yahoos playing White House and the bonus is that they get to plunder the country at will. Case in point:

    12-27-2009 London Independent on Sunday Newspaper Headline: “Video Clip Warned of Fresh Terror Attack”. “Al Qaida warned of a terror attack just days before a former British student allegedly attempted to blow up a transatlantic airliner carrying 278 passengers, it was revealed tonight.” More, “Security services on both sides of the Atlantic were under scrutiny as it emerged Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab was able to board the jet with explosives despite warnings of his extremism, including one from his millionaire father.” PAY ATTENTION TO THIS QUOTE: “Abdulmutallab claimed he received training and instructions from al Qaida operatives in Yemen, US law enforcement officials said.”

    See http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/americas/video-clip-warned-of-fresh-terror-attack-18 51418.html

    Reconcile that COMPETENT REPORTING, with this:

    12-27-2009 L.A. Times Headline: “Janet Napolitano sees NO sign of a wider terrorist plot” . . . “The Homeland Security chief says it’s too early to say whether Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab has ties to Al Qaeda. Sen. Mitch McConnell says U.S. officials should have kept the suspect from flying.” The article goes on to state, “Napolitano said that ‘right now we have no indication that it is part of anything larger.’ ” [What a DOPE Napolitano is!]

    (See http://www.latimes.com/news/nation-and-world/la-na-terror-plane28-2009dec28,0,6963038.story)

    That same L.A. Times article states that “In the December 21 video posted on extremist websites affiliated with al Qaida, a bearded man in head-dress, identified as Mohammed al-Kalwi, says: “We are carrying a bomb to hit the enemies of God. “O soldiers, you should learn that we do not want to fight you, nor do we have an issue with you. We only have an issue with America and its agents, and beware of standing in the ranks of America.’ ”

    On 12-27-2009, The London Telegraph Headline reads: “Detroit terror attack: MI5 hunt for bomber’s accomplices” Yes, Britain’s MI5, its equivalent to the CIA, “is hunting for possible accomplices of the Detroit airline bomber amid fears that he may have been planning to launch the attack from Britain.” Imagine that! Accomplices!!! AND, ABC is pointing out that there may be tie between this terrorist to the Fort Hood Jihadist murderer. But Napolitano – the DOPE – says, no indication its part of Al Queda. AND, what does Barack Hussein Obama II DO? HE GOES ON VACATION!!! He’s on the friggin Golf Course!

    Get this: On 12-27-2009, the Financial Times reported that “the suspect’s father, Umaru Mutallab, former chairman of First Bank, as saying he alerted authorities to a potential risk posed by his son some months ago.” THEN, we learn that his son a Nigerian, “obtained a multi-entry tourist visa to the US in London, was on the Terrorist Identities Datamart Environment database.” BUT our stupid Homeland Security Secretary, Janet Napolitano (the “HOPE” DOPE) said “the names of more than 500,000 people with possible terrorist connections figured on the database, established after the al-Qaeda attacks of September 11 2001.” She rabbits on, that “It doesn’t seem there was more information to put him to no-fly. You need information that is specific and credible if you’re going to bar people from air travel,” she said.”

    WHAT DID BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA II DO WHEN HE WAS FORWARNED? NOTHING

    Instead, Barack Hussein Obama II does what he claims to do best, that’s rhetorical offense in the form of “damage control” tailored at fixing his own reputation of growing gross negligence. He enlists a campaign of denial to flood the airwaves and inconvenience AMERICAN travellers — NOT the terrorists — who are entering our Country at an alarming rate. Are we still calling them terrorists?

    As an aside, just what did that bomber think he was going to do when he got to heaven with all those virgins awaitin’ on him without a crotch?

  90. Obama and Janet can’t protect our country from terrorists, but they sure now how to terrorize voters-intimidate and bribe Congress, attempt to terrorize or demonize Tea Party demonstrators. Can you imagine where the terrorists would be if they used their street thug mentality on the terrorists instead of the American people? They are so confused they have no idea who the enemy is, plus we are the folks who pay their salaries, which they think of as an entitlement program. Obama is a total screw up but he went over the top with the Chrismas bomber.

    http://www.judicialwatch.org/blog/2009/dec/doj-issues-gag-order-black-panther-probe

    The Civil Rights Commission launched the probe, which could include public hearings in Washington and Philadelphia, to reveal whether the decision to drop the charges against the Black Panthers constituted a departure from prior enforcement policy. It also wants to determine if the Justice Department’s actions might lead to more illegal voter intimidation in future elections.
    The Obama Administration clearly doesn’t want the details of this heated case and apparent coverup to be made public. Otherwise, it would allow federal prosecutors to cooperate fully with the Civil Rights Commission’s investigation. Yet another promise of unprecedented transparency has been broken by the commander-in-chief.

  94. Obama /DNC “sensitive” to criticism. Obama and minions in my opinion have made over time a laundry list of errors (national security only in this case) , the Christmas bomber was a very close call, almost too close for comfort. It took Obama 4 days to get it together, and the only reason he is doing so now is because he thinks the incident makes him look incompetent along with his entire administration.

    http://www.cbsnews.com/blogs/2009/12/30/politics/politicalhotsheet/entry6037832.shtml

    Democrats Say GOP Playing Politics on Bombing Attempt
    The Republican response to the Obama administration’s handling of the attempted bombing of a U.S. airliner on Christmas has generated plenty of anger – though it hasn’t all gone in one direction.
    For supporters of the GOP’s position, the criticism of the administration by Republican lawmakers – chief among them Reps. Pete Hoekstra (R-Mich.) and Peter King (R-N.Y.), former Bush administration officials Dick Cheney and Karl Rove, and Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.) – reflects a justified disgust with Democrats’ handling of national security.
    Still, Republicans aren’t likely to stop hammering Democrats on national security, a strategy that has been successful of them in the past. And the Obama administration’s efforts to close the Guantanamo Bay prison facility and decision to hold a trial for alleged Sept. 11 attackers in civilian courts in the United States will likely keep the issue in the headlines right through to the 2010 midterm elections.

  97. JJ – you beat me to the punch. Love the fact that Sarkozy and friends were shut down yesterday and that the Frenchies won’t have to give their hard earned $$$ to the elite to build their failing NWO.

    Btw, read over at the Obama File that following 0’s presser yesterday he immediately went snorkeling leaving the press corps jaws dropping.

    It is his actions that make him appear unconcerned, detached and aloof. I am beginning to believe that he is creating a whole new category for narcissism. The psychiatry and psychology professions may have to devise an entirely new definition either for narcissism or sociopathy based on 0’s behavior toward Ft. Hood and now the Christmas Day Bomber. Whatever he thinks his strategy is it ain’t working!

    Start listening about 15:06, where she talks about SCOTUS not hearing any challenges to BO’s birth certificate issue. Interesting. Before that, she talks about how she thinks the health care bill will be challenged in the courts, if it gets passed, probably under 10th Amendment grounds.

  99. Notes on an “Extremist”

    http://www.noquarterusa.net/blog/2009/12/30/notes-on-an-extremist/

    “Charles Krauthammer has no patience for Obama calling Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab an “extremist,” instead of a terrorist.”

  100. Today, December 29, 2009, Obama stated that there had been systemic failures in our national security system.

    There must be some kind of failure because they inaugurated the jerk into office and his being there is a threat to national security since he is ineligible to be there and I believe he has something to do with these terrorist attacks.

  101. Linda: I read that, too. This election theft has to be dealt with.
