Obama’s Advice: Put Terrorist Attacks in “Perspective”

by Ben Johnson

The Pentagon long ago made a cliché of the phrase, “Failure is not an option.” Barack Obama’s anti-terrorism crew believes failure is not only optional but inevitable – and Americans need to get over it.

Michael Leiter, head of the National Counterterrorism Center, told a conference on intelligence reform, “We’re not going to have a perfect batting average, and it’s important that Americans understand that.” Not to worry, though; the opening line of the story states Leiter believes we can bounce back from another 9/11 or two. The key is to take the terrorist blasts with a happy face. “It’s important that we approach this with national resilience that in fact shows that this country is not going to be defeated by” terrorists, Leiter told the (presumably) increasingly nervous crowd. Instead, we must tell those nasty Muslim fanatics they will not be “cutting into the fabric of our society.” What we have to do, Leiter concluded, is “put the threat in perspective.”

Were this one loose-lipped, harebrained security official, it would be concerning enough. Unfortunately, this seems to be official policy. Obama told Bob Woodward during a July interview for his new book, Obama’s Wars, “We can absorb a terrorist attack. We’ll do everything we can to prevent it, but even a 9/11, even the biggest attack ever…we absorbed it, and we are stronger.”

He could only call a nuclear attack on U.S. soil “a potential game changer.” In the president’s mind, a mushroom cloud over Hollywood is no different than a turnover in fourth quarter.

President George W. Bush, for his (considerable) failings, vowed to wake up every morning and go to sleep every night thinking about America’s safety – and he did so every day from September 11, 2001, to January 20, 2009. Barack Obama and his “defense” team seem obsessed with preparing the American people for a terrorist assault and preprogramming them not to take it too seriously. Only redistributing other people’s money excites his passion.

His continual signs of weakness invite a deadly response.

    A nuke attack on US soil a "game changer"
    WOW who'd a thunk that?
    O wants us not to take too seriously the threat of another terrorist attack…Of course he'd say that, those are his buddies that are planning future attacks.
    We need O to go. Jan 2103," End of an error" what a true statement!

    OMG . . . Obama Must Go

  3. marain says:

    "nasty Muslim fanatics"???? Why do I get the impression Michael Leiter is about four years old? Yes, we'll just tell all those nasty Muslim fanatics that they're poopy heads and mean and we're not ascared of them, no sir!

  4. deedee60470 says:

    I totally agree….Obama must go – NOW before he tries to destroy this country any further than the things he's already done! I read something recently about being a "true" Muslim and that once a Muslim, always a Muslim and that to assure the continuance and further recruiting of people to the Muslim way of life, that they are encouraged to lie and do whatever it takes to convert people or a country to their way of believing and living! After reading this, it only confirms what I've thought all along….that Obama himself is a "true" Muslim – not a Christian!

  5. carolrhill814 says:

    This man needs to be arrested and thrown into jail TODAY and that is a fact then sent to prison in Cuba where he wants to transfer the prisoners and they will never ever leave and that is a fact.

    He is so dangerous I really don't have the words but I knew all of this before he even got close to My White House.

    Why don't people look him up under his real name Barry Soetoro and then they will really understand where he comes from and his way of thinking.

  6. deedee60470 says:

    Additional comment….. aside from also agreeing with this last posting, I sincerely believe Obama's main goal and drive is to turn OUR United States into a Muslim United States! If that should ever happen, God help us all!

  7. DoubleAce says:

    Are you frigging kidding? I wonder if these people actually think before they speak. Yes we can survive another attack (or two), but we sure as heck don't want to. Why aren't we kicking some Muslim butt. Listen folks the problem can be solved easily and probably without any action. We just explain to the entire Muslim world, One more attack and we will turn Mecca into a pile of radioactive dust. I doubt they will take the chance, and if they do, well we just do what we said we would do. After that we take oout one muslim city for every attack on America. End of story!

  8. dpugsr says:

    Let's hope we get some more 9/11 action soon . We really need to get a lot stronger fast. What a bunch of crackpots starting at the top. We do not need a Dept. of Homeland Security. They can't do anything. They can,t even secure a static border let alone stop terrorist attacks. We can reasonably expect this administration to get out of the way if they can not get the job done. He can turn America into a socilist country , but he can't provide security to her citizens!

    • sk1951 says:

      Yes…lets get this crap done and over. they have 1200 bases within our borders and a chef in command of the nation. But islamipobia is not true. what the heck is true anymore? Lies are truth and truth are lies. When does the revolution start? I am ready.

  9. dpugsr says:

    Democrat Party: The Party of Can't….can't fix the economy, can't secure the border, can't have victory in Afganistan, can't fix the economy, can,t keep taxes low , can't keep health care promises, can't stop another 9/11. Can destroy the economy , can lie about the impact and cost of health care reform,can put future generations in bondage to record debt, can tell a new lie every day. I think that the can't prevent another new 9/11 is the first truth to come out of this administration yet!

    By now it should be clear to anyone that can think rationally that obama is a subversive agent placed in the whitehouse thru massive vote fraud, fraudulent campaign finance and an enormous number of highly placed accomplices in the US government in order to conduct espionage against US National Security. Can anyone identify a single obama initiative since being sworn in that has been in the best interest of US National Security? Check out the link below. In a lengthy report prepared by Russia’s Ministry of Industry and Trade for President Medvedev, it is asserted that the Obama administration together with the Service Employees Union International (SEUI), its leader Andy Stern, along with Nation of Islam leader Farrakhan and officials of the radical New Black Panther Party have been “instrumental” in planning the next terrorist attack upon the United States:

    I've got a "game changer" for him. A new, glass parking lot in Iran. Actually, not. By using neutron bombs there is not parking lot, no destruction to property, just the death of all living things. AND, fortunately, the area can be reinhabitated in about 18-months.

    He is assisting the enemy. Obama debates Col. West on identifying the enemy within our borders. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CBWN2Ch_3Gk&fe

    Let them just attack the first family and everything will be hunkey dorry, only if they get them all.

  14. cwhunbun says:

    Brave words coming from a man who has a bunker to spend vacation at during nuclear winter … wonder if they have a putting range now. Can't understand why he vilifies our American Militia so much as Ninety-nine point nine-nine percent of these people are just living and breathing a simple tenet: To kick some commie socialist butt …. oh never mind!

  15. cwhunbun says:

    Friend of mine said this to me …. "Uzzah was struck down by God when he put his hand on the Ark to steady it. If there had been an OSHA in that day, there would have been an investigation into this death. Why was not a warning label pasted on the Ark? Why was the team not given orders not to touch the Ark? It's also humanist. They don't allow God to work in a person's life. They jump in with empty words of comfort to save the day like a superhero."

    ski1950 is Barrack!! Its apparent by the bullshit he/she/it wrote

  17. ImpeachZero says:

    I believe that it is imperative to impeach this Muslim Communist
    If he is not impeached, then, once he leaves the office of the President, ALL his actions and policies will not be questioned nor will there be an ability to revisit and potential repeal them. People that he appoints and offices that he has created will not be questioned. ALL these things NEED to be examined. Those and offices created by the government official in the last 40 years. They need an examination for Constitutionality. Without impeachment this will be unlikely. Another issue is that AFTER he leaves the presidency, if not impeached, then he will be entitled to security and the PROTECTION of America. Look at Jimmy Carter. The damage that that man has done and will continue to do whilst having the full weight of the AMERICAN government and security behind him. Bush and Clinton are extremely powerful. This man is DANGEROUS, in office or out. Impeachment and punishment to the fullest extent of the law is what is required here. America demands JUSTICE not more LIP service. America wants to be treated like a lady and not a piece of tissue.

  18. ImpeachZero says:

    America should be treated like a lady. She deserve NOTHING less. We have nurtured and fed the world. We have outstretched our hands and lent a hand up to all down trodden. The reason the colors of the flag are red (blood), white (purity/nobility), and blue (justice) is because of the Justice given to all MAN that sheds blood nobly for America. American pride is not equated to arrogance. That is a lie just like all the political correctness is. They are lies, intended to destroy America. The Muslim threat in Obama is real. The Muslims, as far back as WWI, teamed up with ANYONE (any culture) that sought to destroy anything WESTERN or EASTERN (built on anything other than ISLAM). Muslims team up with all potential dictators, because it's easier to wrest power from few than it is from MANY. Once America becomes a Dictatorship or a small Oligarchical Tyranny it will be much easier for the Muslim to establish Shariah Law. When Shariah is established, then the rest falls in to place. They will WIN if Obama is not impeached and we if we don't make laws against SHARIAH's Totalitarian Theocracy.

  19. madmemere says:

    The "enemy" within our borders is the entire "obama" administration and barry soetoro himself; the latter should NOT spend any time in prison! I, firmly, believe he should, indeed, be arrested, BUT BY OUR US MILITARY, charged with high crimes and TREASON, hauled before a US military tribunal, convicted and stood up in front of a US military firing squad. Not only, barry, but every last one of his czars, departmental secretaries, and every representive, from both houses of congress, who merely acted as "obama rubber stamps" (for they are all terrorists and traitors)! They all need to go, in this fashion, if only to send the strongest possible statement to the UN and anyone else who "thinks" they might want to mess with the USA!
