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.

Master B. Clinton lied to the courts - - lied to the public - - lied to the special prosecutor - - lied to congress - -lied to his family - - lied to the grand jury - - lied to his cabinet - - lied to his apologists - - until there was no one left for him to lie to.

Similarly - - Stinky has blamed Bush - - blamed the Pubbies - - blamed congress - - blamed the media - - blamed the courts - - blamed white people - - blamed insurance companies - - blamed the oil industry - - blamed the CIA - - blamed the Tea Party - - until - -

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.

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.

In October 2014, the first patient on American soil infected with the Ebola virus sits in isolation in a Texas hospital, prompting calls for travel restrictions between the United States and Ebola-stricken countries. Meanwhile, four years ago, the administration of President Barack Obama moved with virtually no fanfare to abandon a comprehensive set of regulations which the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) had called essential to preventing international travelers from spreading deadly diseases inside the United States. The CDC had proposed the regulations in 2005 under the administration of George W. Bush, reported USA Today in 2010. The

Dr. Phil Emrie, a critical care pulmonologist at Lutheran Medical Center in Wheat Ridge, says he treated adult patients who suffered from conditions similar to the virus. “We don’t know for sure that it’s the enterovirus-68, but we do know that it’s consistent with the illness that they’re seeing in children,” Emrie said. That specific virus has been diagnosed primarily in children. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has

AUSTIN -- A divided federal appeals court ruled Thursday evening to allow Texas´s tough new abortion regulations to take effect, a decision that is expected to force all but seven clinics in the state to close. The ruling from a three-judge panel of the 5th Circuit of the U.S. Court of Appeals at least temporarily reversed a decision by a local judge who struck down two provisions of the law as unconstitutional in August. The order signed by Judges Jennifer Walker Elrod and Jerry E. Smith found that Texas officials were likely to ultimately win their appeal in defense of

In the first chapter that addresses the encounter, Dunham describes the "ill-fated evening of lovemaking" as awkward and hollow.

Deadly, irrational, and determined, the intruder snuck across a weakened perimeter. Eluding capture, the intruder was detained only after missteps and close calls. The spin began soon after the threat was isolated. Information was selectively leaked. Half-truths and untruths were uttered. Responsibility was avoided; privileges and credentials asserted; authority reasserted. Trust us. Remain calm. Don’t panic. This is the template of recent events. A mental case jumps the White House fence. He makes it to the East Room before he’s tackled by an off-duty Secret Service agent. Initial statements turn out to be misleading or false.

It’s the “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.” A New York appeals court next week will consider whether chimps should have the same rights as human beings. The extraordinary proceeding is the result of a lengthy battle by animal-rights activists who argue that animals with human qualities — including chimps — are entitled to human protections, including freedom from captivity. Steven Wise, part of the Nonhuman Rights Project, which is leading the effort, will have to convince a panel of Albany appellate judges that a chimp name Tommy is a “legal person” to get him moved from a cage

For the president’s benefit, let me specify that means a doctor who delivers babies and takes care of the lady parts. When President Obama announced the departure of Eric Holder from his position as attorney general, he also mentioned his “good friend,” the AG’s wife, Dr. Sharon Malone, and he called her an “ohbee-guynee.” (snip) it almost seems as though someone raised in a fantasized USSR training camp for deep cover agents was inserted into the identity of Barack Obama and loosed upon

In a speech in Boston, First Lady Michelle Obama left behind talk of exercise and school lunches, exchanging it all for bald politics by claiming that under her husband the US economy is now better off "by almost every economic measure." The First Lady appeared at the Strand Theater Friday to stump for Martha Coakley´s campaign for Governor of Massachusetts. Coakley needs help badly, as even in blue, blue Massachusetts, the race between Democrat Coakley and Republican Charlie Baker is essentially a toss up. In her remarks, Obama pushed the President´s newest campaign line that he has saved the economy based on
