Boston Bombs: Obama Lulled America Into False Confidence Over Terror Threat

In his State of the Union address to the American people earlier this year, Barack Obama declared that he was “confident” of achieving “our objective of defeating the core of al-Qaeda”.

Although he acknowledged the need to pursue the “remnants” of the terrorist group and its affiliates, the overall message was clear – al-Qaeda was badly degraded, the tides of war were receding and the US was winning this fight that was no longer even officially a war.

The Boston bombings would appear to present a fundamental challenge to that assessment and once again bring the nagging uncertainty of terrorism back on to the American main street.

It is too soon to be absolutely sure the attacks were motivated by jihadist ideology, but the Islamic videos on the website of the older of the two Tsarnaev brothers point very firmly in that direction.

They bring home the complexity of the global Islamist threat and the fact that it cannot be confined to wars in distant lands, or fought at arm’s length using drones, as the Obama administration has quietly yet insistently led America to believe.

    Obama has permission from the Muslim world to tell the American people anything he wants…and still gets his 20 virgins. Ft. Hood fell of the grid when O suggested it was nothing more than a workplace dis-agreement…no story there folks. The diper bomber was on the wrong plane…he was going somewhere else, no news there folks. The bomb set to go off in times square…didn’t work…no news there either.

    The Muslims have put a ton of money into America..they got a President elected….and now Only God knows what he will do and how much damage he has done for years to come! Congress in fear of being exposed of several past crimes are going along…avoiding prison! Maybe not, but you can’t help but wonder????? So many questions and so few answers.

  • Since the death of Osama Bin Laden, the greatest threat to the United States is Obama.

    I totally agree with Dave Warnick’s comment. The greatest threat to America is the president. And, of course, all his little minions in the congress and senate.

  • barack-hussein-obama’s collaboration with the enemy,his funding of the muslim-brotherhood,the umbrella,which protects all the different segments
    of terrorism,aided by their infiltration into the white-house,and our intelligence,and military agencies,insures that no prosecution will prevail
    just look at ft.hood,”workplace violence”?,seriously,b.h.o.,has all the qualifications needed to enable terrorism to force the surrender of this nation,and with no opposition,it provides any act of jihad,with the luxury of
    ideological justification,hidden by islamic privilege,as sharia is reinforced
    with the idiotic parameters of political-correctness,it is obvious to me,this
    man,has been an active member of the enemy strategy,and it is getting
    harder to overlook the fact,that,the enemy is not only on far battlefields,
    worst of all within,boston,should bring to question,wasn’t al’qaeda defeated?there is no sign,all the muslim-brotherhood foreign aid only insures future attacks on the mainland,treason is a legitimate argument
    to this narrative,the u.s.,has been placed on the fast track to captive-nation status,by this president,his policies of capitulation,and the defense of marxist-jihadi superiority.and, the deliberate destruction of the economy,
    has created an overflow of social-minutia to pass off as news,truth,and
    political-correctness,to distract,our decline.

    What I would like to see is something like what the Dems and Bo is doing on gun control to transfer to deal with terrorism. The Dems want to punish all law abiding citizens for owning firearms, until the confiscate all weapons. If the Dems are so concerned about national security, the we need to deport all Muslims studying in this country. There has been an increase of 500% of their students coming to this country since 911, so they should expect to be treated like American citizens. Just deport all Muslims. Make the innocent pay like we do.

    • The Democrats’ war on guns in this country makes me wonder just who are they working for? How many are actually on muslim payrolls?
      It is well-known that Obama has six to eight muslim advisors, including Valerie Jarrett, and just who HE is working for would be of interest to us as well!
