The President on Terrorism

The President used his weekly address to show the measures he is taking to fight the battle against terrorism and Al-Qaeda specifically. He is trying to blunt the obvious Republican thrust that somehow his administration is soft on terrorism. With the President on vacation in Hawaii. the Administration is taking care to show that he is fully engaged on this issue. Today’s Washington Post has a piece on the difficulty of vacationing in the current atmosphere.

    Oh, You Honor,
    That Washington Post piece had me in tears.

    I noticed our first Socialist Euro-President called the incident a “terrorist” attack in the video. However he was more hesitant in his first TV appearance referring to him in very a defense attorney tone unlike his instant off the cuff charges that the Cambridge police were at fault in the Gates-gate affair.

    Do I presume there was a typo in the tele-promter?

    He says he’s going to review all security issues. Hadn’t he done this already?

    As for Homeland Security Cabinet Secretary, Janet Napolitano, why shouldn’t she be fired for her brilliant performance?

    Everything the Republicans can throw at him should be thrown. I know I don’t feel he has the ability or inclination to protect this country and has staffed accordingly.

    Jules.

    Mr. Mayor:

    Since the Bush Patriot Acts that spawned the current procedures that TSA uses, they have been derided by experts as “security theatre” rather than actual security. This article has some interesting points to make.

    However, it does confirm to me that terrorists may actually have a sense of humor: right after the Richard Reid attack and our subsequent need to this day to take our shoes off to prove we weren’t planning to light our shoes on fire, I thought “what would we be doing if Reid decided to use an underwear bomb”?

    I wait with baited breath the newest security measures, and I’m thinking of going out to buy some American Flag underwear to wear on my next flight, just to be sure. Guess I’ll have to make sure there aren’t any hidden pouches.
