White House to Congress:
We Did Not See ISIL Coming

Washington Free Beacon, by Adam Kredo

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 6/25/2014 8:40:02 PM

Senior Obama administration officials’ closed-door briefing to senators Tuesday night revealed that the White House did not anticipate and was not prepared for the rise of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL or ISIS), which has wreaked havoc in Iraq and seized many key cities in recent weeks. Top State Department and Defense Department officials joined senators Tuesday evening for a briefing on the quickly developing chaos in Iraq and future U.S. plans for a response. Sources familiar with the brief said that the administration officials repeated talking points issued over the past several days in both open and

That´s really reassuring isn´t it. NOT. I don´t believe anything they say anyway. I truly fear what lies ahead for this country.

Gee, they are led by someone that Obama let loose from US custody, they were trained by US Special Forces in Syria, and we got warning in advance from the Kurds. NSA was too busy spying on citizens, the CIA must have been concentrating on the GOP, and POTUS was too busy on fundraising and playing golf.

By his ineptitude, stupidity, laziness or whatever you want to call it, Obama has done a giant favor to the UN.

A free and democratic Iraq, at peace, in the heart of the middle east is the greatest threat the UN has ever faced. It would tend to pacify, by example, the entire mideast funkhole and then, where would the UN be, with it´s useless nostrums and endless funding from the western left to fuel their self-loathing guilt need.

Now the mideast can flounder on in 11th century cruelty and uselessness and the UN can continue squandering the west´s wealth while civilization lives in peril.

Not a bad day´s work for a lazy affirm-a choomer.

Well I´m not going to call it lying I think obama is in on it, knew about it all along. Even if what I just wrote could be proven the Democrats and msm would still support him and all the Republicans would do is hold House hearings. Treason no longer exists as law or even a concept in the country anymore. It is now honorable, just, worldly, wise, politically and globally correct for American citizens to hate America and work for its destruction and downfall.

Obama sees what he wants to see and evidently he sees Muslims as being put upon by the West. He has vowed to stand with them should the political winds blow in an ugly direction. Obama sees no threat to the West by the formation of the caliphate. Even though Muslims are brutally killing and maiming their own people as they move across the Middle East to secure a nation state from which to export terror. If not stopped, they will continue to march forward and are much better equipped and funded thanks to Obama´s willful ignorance. He is aiding and abetting terror.

The following is very scary:

The United States has been hesitant to forcefully respond to the insurgent uprising in Iraq and has stated that air strikes are out of the question. U.S. officials have insisted that the Iraqis immediately form a new, more inclusive government in a bid to dampen the violence.

1. "The United States [Obama] has been hesitant" pretty much explains our entire foreign policy, such as it is.

2. "...air strikes are out of the question". Why is that? It seems that air strikes are the only thing that will stop ISIL. Why eliminate the one thing that will keep the ISIL cancer from affecting American interests?

3. "U.S. officials have insisted that the Iraqis immediately form a new, more inclusive government..." is ridiculous. The whole world knows that under Obama, "insistence" is all they will get and they don´t take him seriously.

The fact that our intelligence units didn´t notice this threat (if that is indeed the case) is horrifying. But if O & Co. were warned about this and played golf instead, it´s even worse.

This POTUS, as Krauthammer and Rush have said, is deliberately promoting the decline of this country. It´s called treason.

According to Ralph Peters, this has been on the radar screen for more than a year. It´s just that Obama has no interest in his job except what perks it involves and how much he can get away with using them. He does have a plan and that is neglect while he wantonly spends our money.

I have no problem believing they were too stupid to see this coming.

I am sure no one remembers but a few years ago, on this site, I posted again and again that Muslims have through the years periodically emerged bent on conquest and conversion or death to Christians, Jews and other Muslims and never give up until they have "had a good thrashing". Liberals have turned themselves inside out trying to avoid having to fight them. Even George W. Bush tried to turn their wrath but failed to do so. Once beaten severly they pull back to their hellhole countries and we have some years of peace. It is an unfortunae generation which is faced with one of these surges but we have to fae it. Too bad Obama has all but eliminated our weapons. He has also pretty much retired our best generals.

He´s lying. Again. The Defense Dept. was briefed in January of the imminent threat. There are photo´s of John McCain with them, online, and Obama freed tgeir keader from a US prison overseas.

But, they are Sunni, and so is he, so he is willfully blind.

Although this sounds as if the ´administration´ is incompetent they are anything but. How they could NOT see this coming is beyond me. But since the ´administration´ is loaded with MBers, this was most likely the plan from the start.
This is waht we get when a leader (and I use that term loosely) decides to lead from his anal region.

Funny, NPR yesterday evening had a lengthy story saying this group has been raising money and doing stuff for 2 years, it was well-funded, run like a corporation, etc etc. They did not just spring up last week.

Of course, now that the Whine House has weighed in on it, NPR will have to issue a retraction, "What we said yesterday was not what we meant to say, what we meant to say was exactly opposite of what we said. Sorry."

Just more evidence that Obama has no business being president of the United States. ISIL is probably the most egregious example since it moves everyone closer to WW III.

Also remember that over 100 million people voted for him twice in spite of all the evidence that he was the wrong choice.

For all the people who contemplate sitting out the next election: You can´t. You cannot afford it.

Of course he knew. But whether he did or did not, it is dereliction of duty, because we are and will be impacted.

As for air strikes being out of the question, I think we ought to utterly destroy all the weaponry we have paid for in Iraq, not leaving one vehicle or weapon for ISIS to get their bloody hands on. for starters

Again, he is failing to "support and defend the Constitution, [or] seeing that the Laws are faithfully executed."

Also part of his primary obligations is to ENSURE the safety and security of the United States of America... this he is failing to do: see our undefended southern borders, see shipping --not mere children, but-- young adult males, many with gang tattoos, throughout the country.

Would love to see a REAL presser and have BO asked why he did not know.

Funded and fostered vast left-wing conspiracy and brought to you by the media with no soul. (Actually I expect they are starting to fear more than the rest of us in that if they jump the partisan ship or go truth seeking, they can be picked off one at a time.

Brought to America by the equality and justice party, the "victory-by-any-means" party, the democrat party have no statesman to whistle blow. Patrick Henry and Nathan Hale stories stand out in contrast. Too bad the youth will never hear their stories unless taught at home or by the new minority under ground.

Actually, I do not believe all that doom and gloom. The white folks played a role in the civilizing of the world and the burden is hardly over - just look at all who want to get in at any price.

White flight in sight emptying the metro areas? God help us all and those of opposing politics, too. We all need it.

CNN is testing out a new show with Alisyn Camerota, Chris Cuomo and Don Lemon, POLITICO has learned. On Wednesday, the three anchors taped a pilot dubbed "The 10 o’clock Show,” based out of New York, network sources said. It´s not clear whether it would be a potential primetime 10 p.m. show. Segments included one on the border crisis with "Crossfire" host S.E.

In testifying before the Senate Appropriations Committee, Johnson urged lawmakers to adopt the $3.7 billion plan proposed by President Obama, warning that revenues are running low in the Department of Homeland Security because of outlays already used to address the situation. Without the supplemental funding, Johnson told lawmakers, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement will run out of money sometime in

Attorney General Eric Holder granted an exclusive interview to ABC´s "This Week With George Stephanopoulos" from London, where he was portrayed by ABC as deeply concerned about the global terrorist threat. What stands out from this very rare session — Holder hasn´t been on Sunday network television in four years — is that Holder pulled out the oldest, lamest card in the Obama political deck: President Barack Obama and he are opposed by people who should be suspected of racism. And darned if he didn´t get away with it again. Pierre Thomas, ABC´s Justice Department correspondent, interviewed Holder and asked him why he

"We live in a complex world and at a challenging time," Obama said from the White House. "And none of these challenges lend themselves to quick or easy solutions, but all of them require American leadership. And as commander in chief, I’m confident that if we stay patient and determined, that we will, in fact, meet these challenges."

Transcripts of congressional testimony released by the House Armed Services committee are the latest in a growing body of evidence that the 2012 Benghazi attacks were premeditated. Gen. Carter Ham, who at the time led the military´s Africa command, known as Africom, told Congress in April the terrorists who attacked the CIA annex, during the third wave of the terrorist assault, had professional training. "Given the precision of the attack, it was a well-trained mortar crew," Ham said, adding the mortar strike showed "a degree of sophistication and military training that is relatively unusual and certainly, I think, indicates that

A month before former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin called for President Barack Obama to be impeached on the pages of Breitbart News over his lawlessness on illegal immigration, Obama was already concerned that his unilateral actions on immigration could warrant impeachment. He even kind of joked with pro-amnesty activists not to push him to do something that would get him impeached. Here´s how Politico describes what occurred during a private meeting between Obama and pro-amnesty activists last month: President Barack Obama listened to immigration activists run through a long wish list of executive actions – then added a request of

Despite evidence that the current border crisis is at least partly the result of its previous executive action on immigration, the White House decided it was merely a "public relations problem" and moved forward with plans to issue further executive actions along similar lines. The New York Times has a piece out today which contains some new insight into the White House´s thinking about the border crisis and how it relates to the President´s stated goal of taking action on immigration without Congress. The Times article states, "In the days leading up to the Rose Garden speech, there were discussions in the

The central weakness of the Republican´s political position in Washington has been on vivid display as the situation at the southern border has devolved into a complete crisis. As tens of thousands of foreign nationals overwhelm the border and render our sovereign boundary meaningless, Republicans in DC are tinkering with legislative fixes they say will address the situation. As if the crisis at the border is the result of some drafting error or a failure to enact some specific law relevant to this precise set of circumstances. It is a fool´s errand. Republicans, especially in DC, can always be lured by

The U.S. deported Honduran children as young as 1-1/2 years old on Monday in the first flight since President Obama pledged to speed up the process of sending back illegal immigrant minors from Central America. Fleeing violence and poverty, record numbers of children from Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala have crossed into the United States over the past year, sparking intense debate about how to solve the problem. Monday´s flight from New Mexico to San Pedro Sula, the city with the highest murder rate in the world, returned 17 Honduran women, as well as 12 girls and nine boys, aged

The Obama administration quietly announced on Tuesday that it intends to change the way Americans learn about natural disasters and other major emergencies during radio and TV broadcasts, giving the president the ability to flip a switch and address the entire nation at once. The Emergency Alert System, the latest version of a program first established in 1951, blasts out emergency messages in the event of local weather emergencies, but can also be used to warn Americans about terror attacks and major natural disasters. [Snip] It can take up to 10 minutes for every radio, TV, cable and satellite provider to

In his message to the “Mexico/Holy See Colloquium on Migration and Development,” Pope Francis characterized the tens of thousands of illegal immigrants that have crossed the U.S. southern border as a product of globalization, suggesting that the phenomenon is happening worldwide. Francis proclaimed, “Despite the large influx of migrants present in all continents and in almost all countries, migration is still seen as an emergency, or as a circumstantial and sporadic fact, while instead it has now become a hallmark of our society and a challenge.” Emmer McCarthy for Vatican Radio said Francis expressed his concern for “the tens of thousands of

The First Lady of these United States has declared war on Chick-fil-A. It seems the home of plump juicy breasts and hot buttered buns has run afoul of the new Smart Snacks in School program. The program is a component of Mrs. Obama’s Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. The new government regulations require snack items served in public schools to have less than two hundred calories. That includes vending machines, lunch rooms and other campus food venues. And that’s really bad news for kids at South Carolina’s Socastee High School. They’ve just learned they will no longer be allowed to buy Chick-fil-A

“Trust” is for Con Men: The reaction to the border chaos in Texas has accomplished one thing: It has exploded the lie at the heart of current “comprehensive” immigration reform plans. The basic structure of those plans is a swap of a) near-immediate legalization for b) increased border security in the future. The appealing idea is to let current illegals stay while taking the steps necessary to prevent further waves. The lie is the assumption that, once current illegals get their legalization, pro-immigrant activists in both parties will continue to support the second half of the bargain, the increased security.

John McCain, an immigration hawk. Who knew? Mr. McCain, the highest-profile Republican of the U.S. Senate’s “Gang of Eight” that came up with amnesty as the solution to the immigration crisis — and it truly is a crisis — is finally taking a hard line against President Obama for his encouraging the tidal wave of illegal aliens swamping the southwestern border. “There has to be a halt to this,” Mr. McCain thundered Sunday on CNN. “That’s what we want, and the best way to do that is for planeloads of these young people to be returning to their country of origin

Due to a combination of availability, portability and criminal usage the following five types of guns are the country's most dangerous. School Shootings: Widely Reported Tragedies Since 2000 - Using firearm trace data from the ATF, as well as FBI homicide records, we determined the types of guns most often recovered from crime scenes and/or used in murders.

It had to come sometime, and it came in one very bad week for the Democrats: that the many big problems with Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama finally grew too great for the press to ignore. Obama in his own different way is heading towards Nixon-like levels of weirdness, as, beaten down by the failures regarding his ventures, he appears to have quit his own job. A.B. Stoddard of the Hill says in effect he has stopped being president and chooses to live in a world of his own, shutting out the problems that have become overwhelming, giving dinners where he talks

Senate Budget Committee ranking member Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) has warned all of his colleagues in Congress that President Barack Obama’s new immigration strategy—his plans to legalize millions of illegal alien adults through executive power—could destroy America as we know it. “I write to inform you of a development that threatens the foundation of our constitutional Republic,” Sessions, Congress’s top immigration hawk, wrote in a letter that was hand-delivered to all 535 members of Congress on Monday and provided exclusively to Breitbart News. Sessions cites a recent report from the National Journal, in which reporter Major Garrett detailed how, despite the ongoing

WASHINGTON — It was an enduring image of his presidency: a chastened Bill Clinton walking his dog while wife Hillary keeps her distance as the family leaves town at the height of the Monica Lewinsky scandal — but it was all part of a contrived public-repentance campaign, according to a new book. With Bill on the skids and his wife’s future prospects on the line, it was necessary for the pubic to see the president being punished, said Weekly Standard online editor Daniel Halper in his new book, “Clinton, Inc.: The Audacious Rebuilding of a Political Machine.” “They understood that
