ISIS Underestimation

Breitbart TV, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:mitzi, 8/9/2014 1:03:58 PM

Saturday from the White House South Lawn, President Barack Obama blamed "intelligence estimates" for not anticipating the speed in which ISIS would capture large sections of Iraq. The president,who has been under harsh media criticism for likening ISIS to an Al-Qaeda JV basketball team in January said, "There is no doubt that their advance their movement over the last several of months has been more rapid than the intelligence estimates and I think the the expectation of policy makers both in and outside of Iraq." The president also made clear no troops would go into Iraq during this operation of

Oh I´m quite sure it was somebody else´s fault. /s. If he had watched the news as he claims is where he learns stuff, he would have picked up on it regardless of whether his intelligence was good, bad, or indifferent. We´ve all known it for weeks now.

Bush got bad intel and no one believed that. Why should we believe the Liar-in-Chief? But not to worry, his golf game has improved considerably.

When the bozo in the WH began his first campaign to rule the US it was obvious to anyone paying attention that if this guy was ever elected he would bring exactly zero experience in anything except a form of radicalism designed to destroy this country as we know it. As time progressed he seemed to show he would also bring a psychological condition apparently developed during his early and drug laced past which manifests itself in risk avoidance to anything which would reflect negatively on himself. IMO, he demonstrates psychological tendencies that won´t allow him admit mistakes or tolerate criticism. Add this to his upbringing in the communism/socialist philosophy of his relatives and mentor plus his seemingly unending lies to get what he wants make his assertion of bad intelligence as laughable as his assertions that he only knows about his administration´s scandals from the news media.

Searching for a moment of levity amidst all the carnage in the Middle East and a supine Obama Administration, I recalled my favorite puppet movie: Team America World Police, by the South Park guys (2004). The very brief youtube video below isn´t exactly the one I want, but it gives you the voice of Team America´s computer, named I.N.T.E.L.L.I.G.E.N.C.E., as well as Team boss, Spottswood, who will blow your commie brains out.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wXMEfspf1eU

In another part of the movie Spottswood berates I.N.T.E.L.L.I.G.E.N.C.E.:

Spottswood: That was bad intelligence! Bad intelligence!
I.N.T.E.L.L.I.G.E.N.C.E.: I´m sorry.

It´s bad intelligence to yammer like this now. Nobody expected ISIS to be this good, probably the strongest Islamic military organization in 500 or 1000 years.

OTOH it is *always* a mistake to misunderestimate an opponent, as Obama does every day, he insults and sneers at everything and everyone.

And oh, btw, what *is* his *current* estimation, hmm?

Obama, it has been reported in the news for at least 2 months. I suspect your intelligence agents let you know much earlier, at least a year earlier, but you intended to leave Iraq no matter what, so did not listen. But that is a truthful representation, so Obama will do the opposite and lie, and say he did not know.

What will he say/do when ISIS has Erbil surrounded and begins intensively attacking our assets there?

Because that is exactly what´s going to happen and very soon ...

... maybe even next week

And our only option will be boots on the ground.

Will he let ISIS take those assets captive or will he do what´s needed?

Either way he loses.

He was doomed to lose because he is and always was ...

Well if Obama is telling the truth, he has something in common with G.W. Bush in that they were both screwed by wrong intelligence estimates concerning Iraq, Bush on the WMD question and Obama on the ISIS question. Hopefully Obama will figure out that bring president in the real world is a lot harder then riding around in a campaign bus spouting liberal Democrat political propaganda. I won´t hold my breath.

How would he know?
He never reads the daily briefings.
He never meets with his national security team.
He is busy! Golfing, fundraising, videos for gay games, vacations. These activities take up all his time.
Besides, ISIS is below his pay grade.
Somebody else did this.

St. Louis County Police reported a male police officer from Ferguson was doing routine patrol around 9:10 p.m. in the 1000 block of Smith Avenue when he interrupted a burglary at a business. Police say the officer saw a man behind the Ferguson Community Center and got out of his vehicle to see why he was there. The suspect fled and the officer followed on foot. Officials say during the pursuit the suspect turned toward the officer with a handgun and began firing shots. The officer was hit in the left arm.

MADRID: Tens of thousands of people gathered in Madrid on Saturday to witness the beatification of an early leader of the Roman Catholic organization Opus Dei. At a large outdoor mass, Cardinal Angelo Amato began the process that will confirm Alvaro del Portillo as a saint. Del Portillo succeeded Opus Dei´s founder, St. Josemaria Escriva de Balaguer, as leader of the organization. Opus Dei, once considered a secretive, right-wing, cult-like group that curried high favor within the church, has been trying to foster a friendlier image in recent years.

If the grand jury fails to indict the officer who killed Michael Brown, almost everyone here thinks things will get worse. “They’re not going to be looting next time,” said Kevin Seltzer, 30, who lives at an apartment complex near where Brown, 18, was shot. “They’re going to burn the city down.” The article highlights recent indications that the city is “far from finding peace,” including continued clashes with officers, the shooting

For President Obama, the color of a man’s skin is far more important than the content of his character. On the night when a police officer was shot in a Missouri town torn by racial strife, the president donned a shiny tuxedo to attend a ritzy black awards dinner, where he said police nationwide are to blame for community mistrust, even claiming that “most Americans” think the country is racist. Remember, when Ferguson exploded in racial rage in August, Mr. Obama chose not to curtail his 15-day vacation, spending day after day on the golf course in the white-skinned, white-wined, millionaire playground

The man who jumped the White House fence this month and sprinted through the front door made it much farther into the building than previously known, overpowering one Secret Service officer and running through much of the main floor, according to three people familiar with the incident. An alarm box near the front entrance of the White House designed to alert guards to an intruder had been muted at what officers believed was a request of the usher’s office, said a Secret Service official who spoke on the condition of anonymity. The officer posted inside the front door appeared to

The U.S. had expected the Iraqi army to do more against extremists, president says in acknowledgment of intelligence shortcomings. President Obama acknowledged that the U.S. underestimated the rise of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS, also called ISIL) and overestimated the ability of the Iraqi military to fend off the militant group in an interview that will air Sunday on 60 Minutes. The president was asked by 60 Minutes correspondent Steve Kroft about comments from Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, who has said the U.S. not only underestimated ISIS, it also overestimated the ability and will of the

WASHINGTON — The Senate’s minority whip is confident about Republicans being the majority in the 114th Congress — if conservatives can set aside differences and work to combat the massive influx of donor cash that has Democratic campaigns ahead in the money race. Only in the majority, Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) stresses, can conservatives make headway on tamping down overregulation, repealing and replacing Obamacare, securing the “chaotic” border, getting Keystone XL moving, and bringing civilized debate back to the upper chamber. And only by realizing the gravity of the battle for November, he argues, can Republicans relegate Harry Reid (D-Nev.)

The Secret Service was unaware for four days that a man had fired a high-powered rifle at the White House in 2011 in a ´fumbled´ response that left the Obamas furious, says a new report. Officers allegedly performed a string of security lapses after Oscar Ramiro Ortega-Hernandez shot at least seven bullets at the executive mansion in Washington from his car. At the time, President Barack Obama, his wife Michelle and their older daughter Malia were not at home, but their younger daughter Sasha and Mrs Obama´s mother, Marian Robinson, were inside. It comes as the Secret Service is facing more questions over

President Obama firmly believes the United States is better off now than when he took office, even though the American people cannot “feel” it. During an interview with 60 Minutes’ Steve Kroft, Obama said, “the country is definitely better off than when I came into office.” “When I came into office, our economy was in crisis,” Obama said. The president then cited lower unemployment, private sector job growth, and deficit cuts as evidence of his administration’s success. “I can put my record against any leader around the world in terms of digging ourselves out of a terrible, almost unprecedented financial crisis,” Obama said.

The Justice Department is expected to ban profiling by federal law enforcement. Counter-terror investigators would be barred from undercover operations in mosques or other religious institutions unless there is reason to believe criminal activity is going on there, under a new policy expected within weeks. The new rules would ban profiling based on religion, ethnicity or sexual orientation and includes no exemption for national security investigations, the Los Angeles Times reports. The announcement of the new policy to crack down on law enforcement profiling was delayed for several months because of White House
