The Passenger in Seat 19-a

Terrorists, according to the P.C. crowd, are a deprived people because of the greedy U.S. foreign policy

By de Andréa

So just who was the passenger in seat 19-a on N.W. flight 253 from Amsterdam Holland? His name, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, a Nigerian from a prominent wealthy family. Kind’ a blows the deprived theory of the multi-cultural P.C. robots doesn’t it?

Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab sat in a left side window seat in row 19 toward the middle of the plane. He never intended to reach Detroit Michigan. A young man of privilege, well educated and highly trained as a Muslim terrorist.

According to other Passengers, security was lax at the Amsterdam airport, allowing people to carry water bottles on board and not having to remove their shoes. Even so only one passenger felt uneasy about the flight, the Mother in an American family who had adopted two children in Ethiopia.

Umar was trained in Yemen where the U.S. supports terrorist training camps to the tune of approximately one hundred million a year. The administration is now trying to decide whether to bring U.S. troops to Yemen or just throw another one hundred million at the problem.

“I have found the true Islam,” Umar wrote his father in Nigeria. “Don’t try to contact me anymore,” he said. His Father contacted the Nigerian police who brought him to the U.S. Embassy to report his son’s suspicious activities. He told them that he was afraid his son was about to do something radical. The American Embassy in turn contacted the FBI. This was five weeks before the flight on Christmas Eve.

Dropping the ball
He found the true Islam, he said. He sure did, the Islam of the Quran that teaches, “KILL THE INFIDELS WHERE EVER YOU FIND THEM”.

The FBI had the whole story; Umar was put on the terrorist watch-list, but not on the “No-fly list”. One would think that one list would flag the other, apparently not. Go figure! But don’t forget Janet Napolitano of Homeland Security said the system worked smoothly. Got news for you Janet, the system didn’t work at all.

Pants on fire
The device that Umar carried in his under-drawers exploded or actually it fizzled. It did go off however but just not the way it was planned. The explosive powder had lost its compression and so it just burned, setting his pants on fire.

After the attendants had extinguished Umar’s hot pants they took him from his seat and took the rest of his clothes off to eliminate the possibility of another fiery episode.

Later it was shown by a bomb expert, that if Umar’s bomb had functioned properly, it would have blown the left side out of the plane exploding the wings fuel tank and sending more that 300 passengers to their deaths.

THE BOTTOM LINE: So, do you feel safe now that you know big brother is looking out for you? Or are you wondering why this administration is more interested that the enemy combatants/terrorists get a fair civilian trial?

Obama said in his speech that “the system isn’t broken; they just failed to connect the dots”. Well if the system failed to connect the dots, then it’s broken isn’t it? The real problem here is not the connecting of the dots, but recognizing the dots when they are presented to you. The system failed because the system fails to even recognize who the enemy is. Obama says, “We are not at war with the nation of Islam”. Then Mr. Obammah, I would like you to tell me just exactly who we are at war with.

We need to put a face on the enemy
As long as we continue to be ignorantly deceived that we are at war with terror, the system will fail. It is the same failed philosophy that says crime is caused, not by criminals, but by guns. Terror is a weapon of Islam, we are not at war with a weapon, we are at war with the nation of Islam. Just as we were at war with Nazis and the Nation of Germany We are now at war with Muslims and the Nation of Islam.

Will Obama Continue Releasing Terrorists? It is discouraging to say the least to learn that the terrifying incident that could have resulted in hundreds of innocent American deaths on Christmas day was planned by terrorists who had been in United States custody, but were released to repeat their terrorist activities.
According to ABC’s Brian Ross, the would-be bomber of flight 253, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab was being trained by at least four al-Qaeda leaders in Yemen; moreover, two of those four men were former terrorist GITMO detainees, or prisoners of war. “Guantanamo prisoner #333, Muhamad Attik al-Harbi, and prisoner #372, Said Ali Shari, were released to Saudi Arabia on Nov. 9, 2007, according to the Defense Department log of terrorist detainees who were released from American custody”.
After being released to Saudi Arabia, these terrorists underwent a warm fuzzy politically correct “art” therapy rehabilitation program paid for by the U.S. State department. Oh good this is why they probably decided to kill Van Gough in Amsterdam. Moreover after being taught to all get along, play nice, and have a group hug, they were set free after completing the treatment. The treatment according to the State departments counter terrorism psycho-babble team is designed to “cure” Islamic extremists of their murderous ideology. Isn’t it interesting that all of the terrorists that have gone through this artsy “Can’t we all get along program” have been rearrested, shown up in al-Qaeda videos, or been known by intelligence officials to have returned to the battlefield to kill more of our soldiers. Don’t you think there might possibly be something wrong with the design of their program? I mean it doesn’t work does it?

These people have got to be brain dead. No… not the terrorists, the psycho’s who are running this country.

In the first paragraph of the war-college manual it says; …“identify and know who your enemy is”.

Have you ever wondered why this war has become the longest war in American History? It is because we have yet to take the first step that is required to winning this war

Maybe it will have to come to war in the streets of America with Islam before we recognize who this enemy is.

But then, what can one expect from a Muslim President…

Hillary and the Red Phone

The “Red Phone” has become an Icon of presidential resolve

By de Andréa

During the 2008 presidential race Hillary Clinton warned that if a national security crisis arose with Barack Obama in the White House, and the “Red Phone” rang alerting him at 3 a.m., he could not be trusted to adequately respond. Did Hillary Rodham Clinton turn out to be right all along, at least about this?

Hillary’s warning in a campaign ad suggested that an Obama White House would so downplay a threat posed by terrorism that “the government’s focus would shift away from the harsh reality of an attack, that the tactics used to protect the homeland would be severely compromised. Instead, Obama would turn his attention to becoming more popular in the world and stress negotiations over a hardball defense.

That attitude has trickled down to all levels of government responsible for national security.

On Thursday, President Obama sought to calm Americans’ fears about the terror threat following the attempted bombing of a plane on Christmas Day. But “there wasn’t much to see in the White House other than bungling of previous bungling, as the administration rescheduled Obama’s address to the country several times. At 8 a.m., the White House said the president would speak at 1 p.m., then at 3 p.m. At 3 p.m., the White House said Obama would speak at 4:30 p.m. He finally took the podium at 4:34 p.m.

In Obama’s trip to Cairo last year to address the Muslim world, really said it all, he said, “It is part of my responsibility as president of the United States to fight against negative stereotypes of Islam wherever they appear.” I just can’t even imagine what document, book, or rule that came from. If he has time for that kind of nonsense regarding America’s enemy, then he does not have a clue who our enemy is, or is not spending enough time thinking about how to thwart this enemy.

But it is not like we weren’t warned by Hillary Clinton. Another 2008 presidential candidate, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, declared Friday morning that the Fort Hood shootings and the Christmas Day bombing incident show that Obama and his advisers have been “fundamentally wrong” in their approach to this war. Giuliani, who was New York's mayor when terrorists struck on Sept. 11, 2001, told MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” viewers that the president has tried to let “political correctness trump reality.” Giuliani said the Obama administration came into power with the belief that President George W. Bush’s response to the 9/11 attacks was unnecessarily severe, and had alienated America’s potential allies abroad.

Obama has the new age philosophy that the answer to everything is to negotiate. In other words compromise, even your country’s basic core beliefs. “Can’t we all just get along” is Obama core belief. “Let’s have a group hug’. This type of philosophy eliminates the need to be decisive.

Overwhelming odds
I believe there is a time an a place for negotiations, but when the other side has never in its history of 1400 years proved that they were willing to play nice, then the negotiations should be over and hard line military force should begin. No… I mean overwhelming, bent on winning the war even if it means the total destruction of the enemy. This is what the “Red Phone” has come to mean. The hard choice…

Little is known about the intent of President Truman regarding the atomic attack on Japan, should they not have surrendered unconditionally. The U.S. had two other atomic bombs being built, much larger and more powerful than the ones dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. After the second bomb was dropped the enemy knew that if they did not surrender, all the islands of Japan would still be a nuclear wasteland today. Overwhelming odds ended the war.

Can’t we all just get along and have a group hug? No we can’t. Nor should we. Not with an enemy that has been bent on subjugating the world nations since its beginning 1400 years ago. We are not going to change the agenda of Islam through negotiations. As long as they are standing upright, the nation of Islam will be determined to control the world under the oppressive Sharia law. Moreover deception is their most powerful weapon. We must pull the prayer rug out from under them, completely….

We truly need to tell out allies what we intend to do and then win this war with overwhelming odds and not look back. The alternative is that Islam will bleed the west until our veins run dry.

How much blood are you willing to spill in the sand just to be politely correct or to appease the multi-cultural elitists of this world?

Has American Civilization Become Incompetent?

A little on the philosophical side

By de Andréa

When does a civilization become incompetent?
Many historical civilizations have met their demise simply because of their growing surreptitious civil incompetence.

Sometimes to survive, we have to choose between what we may consider two evils. I've been mulling this question around in my mind in relation to a number of contexts, especially during this last year. They include but are not limited to our inability to truthfully and properly identify our enemy, or put an acceptable stop to Somali piracy, detain a terrorist who can neither be charged nor released, and to think rationally and truthfully about climate change, or rebuild the 9/11 Ground Zero site in an acceptable way and time frame.

This question or one similar to it may come to ones mind while watching ones children—ages six, four, and four months—superfluously get patted down before boarding a U.S. domestic flight while the larger-than-allowed bottle of cough syrup in ones carry-on bag, somehow escapes the screener's humorless attentions, or the discretionary feeling-up under a Catholic Nuns Habit. All this, because we fail to understand who or enemy is.

Yes, terrorists may come in any number of skin colors, and they aren't above strapping explosives to their own children. And yes, the Obama administration did take a half-step toward sanity by ordering additional screening of passengers from 14 known terrorists countries. They include Yemen, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia and Nigeria, the home of Detroit bound Flight 253’s would-be bomber Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab. Umar’s father by the way, months before, told the FBI that Umar had gone to Yemen and he was told that he would never see him again. He was afraid that his son was going to do something radical. They still let him on the plane with the bomb. Yes we have become worse than incompetent.

But here's a predictive certainty: Not one infidel (non-Muslim) from any of these countries (or others such as Egypt or Jordan, which were oddly excluded from the list) has ever or will ever become a suicide bomber. The localized case of Sri Lanka's Tamils aside, suicide bombing is a purely Islamic agenda. Note that in the whole of the intifada community there was not a single case of a Palestinian Christian blowing himself up, making nonsense of the view that Israel's checkpoints, curfews, and security fences were the main cause of the terror.

So as Homeland Security, TSA and the rest of the government's counterterrorism apparatus struggle to upgrade travel security in a way that doesn't involve freeze-drying passengers before they board, it's worth noting that we may have finally reached the outer limits of our politically correct and multi-cultural approach to airport security as well as the security of this Nation. To wit, the U.S. government is now going to profile Muslim passengers, albeit partially, indirectly and via the euphemism of nationality instead of religion. Insofar as actual security is concerned, it would be both more honest and effective if it dropped the remaining pretense.

The obvious rub is that profiling goes against the American grain. We shudder at the memory of previous instances of it, particularly the internment of Japanese-Americans and German born immigrants in the 1940s which despite it’s after-taste did prove to be effective.

But a civilization becomes incompetent not only when it fails to learn the lessons of its past, but also when it becomes crippled by them. Modern Germany, to pick an example, has learned from its Nazi past to eschew chauvinism and militarism, so far, so good. But today's Multikulti Germany, with its negative birth rate, bloated welfare state and pacifist and ecological obsessions is a dismal rejoinder to its own history. Parallel to some hate America philosophies, it is conceivable that within a century, Germans may actually loathe themselves out of existence. Does this sound familiar?

In the U.S., our civilizational incompetence takes various forms. For instance, no country in the world collects more extensive statistical data about its own population than the U.S. And no country is more conflicted about the uses to which that data may or may not be put than the U.S. So what exactly is the point of all these statistics, all this measuring, collating and parsing?

Our deeper incompetence stems from an inability to recognize the proper limits to our own virtues; to forget, as Aristotle cautioned, that even good things "bring harm to many people; for before now men have been undone by reason of their wealth, and others by reason of their courage."

Thus we reject profiling on the commendable grounds that human beings ought not to be treated as statistical probabilities. But at some point we must decide just who our enemy is; moreover, the failure to profile puts innocent lives recklessly at risk. We also abhor water- boarding for the eminently decent reason that it borders on torture, heck I was water-boarded while in the military as part of my training, shucks, I get water-boarded every time I go to the dentist, fighting for my next breath.

We fail to competently comprehend the Muslim agenda
There are worse things than water-boarding—like allowing another 9/11 to unfold because we recoil at the means necessary to prevent it. Similarly, there are worse things than Guantanamo—like releasing terrorists to Yemen so they can murder and maim again (and so we can hope to take them out for good in a "clean" Predator missile strike). Or worse, release them into our own American neighborhoods because their own country will not take them.

THE BOTTOM LINE: Put simply, we do not acquit ourselves morally by trying to abstain from a choice of evils. We just allow the nearest evil to make the choice for us. Or just as serious, we have a habit of being reactionary rather than preemptive.

And so it goes. We can be proud of how deeply we mourn the losses of troops in Afghanistan and Iraq. But a nation that mourns too deeply ultimately becomes incapable of conducting a war of any description, whether for honor, interest, or survival. We rightly care about the environment. But our neurotic obsession with carbon dioxide betrays an inability to distinguish between pollution and the stuff necessary to sustain life itself. We are a country of standards and laws. And yet we are moving perilously in the direction of abolishing notions of discretion, judgment, and competence.

One of life's paradoxes is that we are as often undone by our virtues as by our vices. And so it is with civilizations.

America is no exception…

Think about it,

Our Security Knew About The Underwear Bomber

Obama said in his speech that the system isn’t broken; they just failed to connect the dots.

By de Andréa

One cannot rehabilitate a ticking time bomb one needs to disarm and destroy it.
Our Government is in denial even of who this enemy is, much less of what or where the dots are. One cannot connect dots that one is in denial of.

The Northwest Airlines bomb attempt was led by al-Qaeda members that were RELEASED from GITMO! Two of the four Co-Conspirators were detained in GITMO but released to a Saudi “Rehab” program. So how is that working out for you Obammah?

This nation’s security strategy is reactionary rather than proactive. We make the same mistake in crime fighting; we react to vicious crime by attacking guns and innocent gun owners instead of attacking the criminals. In this case, just as the shoe bomber, we attacked shoes, innocent people’s shoes. So now we will attack innocent underwear and feel innocent people’s crouches. Do you feel safer, or controlled and abused?

Say, I have a novel and profound Idea. Why don’t we just identify the enemy and attack him? No --- that’s too simple…

Cover up
The Obama administrations John Brennan, assistant to the president for homeland security, declared there was "no smoking gun" that could have alerted authorities about an al-Qaida plot to bring down a U.S. airliner over Detroit. The truth is, had received a personal, high-level briefing in October warning of a new al-Qaida tactic of hiding a bomb in an attacker's underwear.

On Fox News Sunday, John Brennan, told host Chris Wallace, "There was no smoking gun. There was no piece of intelligence that said, 'This guy's a terrorist. He's going to get on a plane.' No, none whatsoever."

Brennan's comment evoked derision from international expert Arnaud de Borchgrave Monday during an exclusive interview with Newsmax.TV's Kathleen Walter. "I would call that twaddle in all its unrational splendor," said de Borchgrave, author, syndicated columnist, and director of the Center for Strategic and International Studies. "It's ridiculous to maintain such a thing.”

Brennan is trying to cover-up a very difficult situation.
Despite Brennan's contention that no smoking gun preceded the attack, Brennan had received a personal briefing in October from Muhammad bin Nayef, the Saudi Prince who narrowly survived an al-Qaida assassination attempt in August. Nayef was wounded in the explosion, which used the same technique, and the same PETN explosive material, that authorities say Nigerian Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab employed to try to bring down a Northwest airliner on Christmas Day.

Al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula claimed responsibility for both attacks.An intelligence source said bin Nayef personally briefed Brennan because "he didn't think [U.S. officials] were paying enough attention" to the growing al-Qaida threat in Yemen.U.S. intelligence sources say they believe the same bomb maker built both devices.

Again, too much emphasis on the weapon, and not enough on the perpetrators Brennan told CNN that, although he personally toured the site of the bombing in Saudi Arabia and met with bin Nayef, "There was no indication, though, that al-Qaida was trying to use that type of attack and that modus operandi against aircraft."In December 2002, however, convicted terrorist Richard Reid tried to ignite PETN hidden in his shoe, in an attempt to destroy American Airlines Flight 63. Authorities who analyzed the attack later concluded that, if successful, the explosion could have destroyed the aircraft.

Underwear or shoes are not the enemy
Brennan's comment marked the second time a high-level Obama administration official appeared to downplay the extent of the lapse.

Immediately after the attempted Detroit bombing, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano stated that the “system worked really smoothly.” This; despite the fact that a suspect known to be a terrorist, boarded a U.S.-bound flight without being searched. She later said her remarks were taken out of context. I think Janet is the one who is smooth.

We are at war!
Brennan, who has served in both Republican and Democratic administrations, also directed strident criticism at former Vice President Dick Cheney, who recently stated "But we are at war, and when President Obama pretends we aren't, it makes us less safe."
He was on the terrorists watch list but not the no-fly list, the trouble is we just have too many lists and no direction.
President Obama has stated the intelligence lapse that allowed Abdulmutallab to board the flight without a thorough search reflected a "systemic failure." But don’t forget, the systematic failure worked smoothly. The State Department Monday released further evidence to that support that view. It said to the Associated Press that counterterrorism agencies were alerted on Nov. 20, that Abdulmutallab had fallen under the influence of Jihadists.

THE BOTTOM LINE: The solution to winning a war is first to identify the enemy. The state department, the administration, the department of defense, the congress… well the whole darn government has tap-danced around this first step to winning a war. Moreover, as long as we continue to allow this constitutionally bound Federal Government to wallow in denial and practice the religion of ‘Multiculturalism’ and ‘Political Correctness’ we will not win this war.

We first identified this enemy as ’Terrorism’. Terrorism is not a country; terrorism is not even a people. Terrorism is a weapon. A weapon used by a nation and a people. Instead of recognizing this mistake we made yet another misguided mistake and reduced the weapon of terrorism to “MAN MADE DISASTERS”, further disconnecting ourselves from the truth and the enemy. And to add insult to injury the Department of Homeland Security identified the “Man” in “man made disasters” as Christian Conservatives, American military veterans, American Constitutionalists, and any other American patriot.

I have news for the American Government and the American people… The identity of our enemy, (step one in winning a war) is the Nation and people of Islam. How profound is that? No more profound than in 1941 identifying that we were at war with the nation of Germany and the people of Nazism.

If we continue in this deception and deny who we are at war with, we will soon become part of our enemy’s nation. The nation of Islam, (the fastest growing Nation on earth) now close to 2 Billon is a third of the world’s population. It is already the worlds largest Nation.

The question is --- do you want to continue to be deceived and become a part of it…
