The Consequences of Obama: Terrorism is Back – by Dick Morris


Rev. Jeremiah Wright said that the “chickens came home to roost” on 9-11.  He was wrong.  But they have now, indeed, come home to roost as we witness the results of the unilateral disarmament President Obama has practiced in the war on terror.  Beset once more by terrorism on our soil and in our airspace, we find ourselves suddenly overmatched by those who the Bush Administration kept away from our shores for seven years.

This new onset of terrorism is not the product of any change in the international environment or some new “systemic” flaw in our intelligence operations.  It is due to the policy of President Obama in letting down our guard and inhibiting those charged with our protection.

Under Obama, the hunters have become the hunted as America inverted her priorities.  Those who have been working to keep us safe have, themselves, come under scrutiny for profiling, harsh interrogation techniques, and a failure to give terrorists constitutional rights they don’t have.

The result is predictable:  Timidity and caution have become the order of the day in our intelligence community.  In a world where hunch, guesswork, and a willingness to leap to conclusions by imagining the worst are vital to success, a cover your butt mentality has taken over.  If you come to the wrong conclusion, if you profile without adequate justification, if you accuse incorrectly, you are finished.  Your career and your pension will be gone.  Guess right and you are accorded anonymity.  Guess wrong and you’re through.

The failure of the intelligence operatives to pass along the information about the Ft. Hood shooter or the airline bomber did not flow from a blind spot or a lack of co-ordination, they stemmed from terrorism of a different sort — the terror of making a mistake and falling on the harsh mercies of Eric Holder.

Now Nigerian terrorist Umar Farouk Abdulmutall sits, lawyered up, in a federal prison.  His interrogation will proceed, if at all, under the watchful eye of his counsel.  He will not finger other operatives nor warn us of other impending attacks.  He will receive the full panoply of constitutional rights, none of which he is entitled to.

Barack Obama does not seem to understand that these terrorists come here to use our laws and our system, not to protect us, not even to shelter themselves, but to destroy us.

Abdulmutall should be interrogated by the military, without benefit of counsel. The evidence we obtain should not be admissible in a court of law nor used as the basis for his sentencing.  But it must be used to ward off future threats and attacks.

But Obama is a true believer.  His persistence in downgrading the war on terror to a criminal investigation will continue.  And we will experience more and more attacks.  Because pessimism is the bodyguard of liberalism, he will explain to us that the world has become more threatening and that he is doing all he can to keep us safe.  But the truth will be that it will have been his policies and priorities that are leaving us exposed.

And the attacks will continue.

    Americans WAKE-UP

    Hate to the US is part of a deep and sincere ideology.
    PMW Director Itamar Marcus spoke in the US Congress several month ago about the dangers inherent in the creation of a PA state. While US President Obama and other senior politicians have touted the creation of a PA state as beneficial to American interests, a PA state would in all likelihood ally itself with America’s enemies, he said. Among the statements quoted in the report: “Allah, take hold of the Americans and their allies… Allah, count them and kill them to the last one and don’t leave even one.” Ahmed Bahar, speaker of the PA legislative council, on PA TV in April 2007.

    Dear Mr. Morris,
    First of all, there is no terrorism, because Mr. Obama said there is none.
    Newsmax wrote in an article by Timmerman that we do know where Mr. Obama got his funding from. Khalid al-Mansour a.k.a. Don Warden, is the one who was exposed by Mr. Percy Sutton that Mr. Obama's Harvard Law School tuition was paid by al-Mansour.

    No wonder Mr. Barack Obama bowed to King Abdullah! Now you know why Mr. Obama bowed so low. (His bow to the Japanese Prime Minister was to cover up for all the controversy surrounding the Saudi bow.)

  • ApolloSpeaks


    Obama has a comprehensive plan for defeating radical Islam which is weakneing our defenses against the enemy and making the homeland more vulnerable to attack. For insight into this plan Google ApolloSpeaks (one word) and read my piece which connects all the dots: Barack Obama's Utopian Plan for Defeating Radical Islam.

    So, when you hear this hope and change crap again in the future, understand that its coming from a naive amateur who likes to hear himself talk. Especially when the “hope and change” are not backed up with specifics of what that even means. Yes, it sounds good to believe the world is black and white, right and wrong, and the whole world is care bears and sunshine. This is the real world, and there are bad people out there that want to destroy things, and gain power and it doesnt matter how nice we are to them, they are psychotic murderers. Those who had to deal with bullies learned the best way to deal with them is to go ahead and punch them in the nose and get it over with. The bullie figures your not an easy target and moves on.

    Bush punched the psycho terrorists in the nose and now we are playing nice with them again. Let me know which one you think works best.

  • thinker1

    no bathroom trips during last hour of flight? Our “intelligence officers” can't comprehend a jihadist exploding a bomb during last, say, 65 minutes?
    Do it like Israelis – look at people, check potential bombers – all acts of terror were done by muslims……Check 'em all.
    They don't like it? Then they don't fly.

    Maybe he not only bowed to a muslim king! Not a gaffe. No international protocol knowledge or caring (like Michellla slapping the Qeen of England on her back).
    One of those educated beyond his intelligence called it here a GAFF, so I guess our grrrreat one, hooking up to that hand, might kiss, lick or suck king's fingers….and who wiped the slobber off? Our guys or his?

  • abrahamstubenhaus

    Yes Thinker1, it is actually possible that after he and the king went into a private room without a single camera, there was some serious finger sucking going on.
    Nothing like a sucked finger to start one's day.

    Every response to a terror attack results in new restrictions on travelers. Every time the Government comes up with a new/improved airport screening technique, the Islamists are always a step ahead.
    So what's next for the Islamists? Body cavities. Natural and created; let's not forget most recently these are physicians who could easily create an abdominal pouch large enough to carry a devastating charge.
    Identify our enemy and keep them off the planes – leave the rest of us alone!

  • brenanc

    Why has Obama let down our guard?

    Does he see a diminished threat?

    Is his legal approach superior to the Bush Administration's military approach?

    Is he naive and stupid?

    Or is he aware what his change in approach will yield? Why would he do this? Might a horrific terrorist attack serve as a pretext for extreme measures? What might those extreme measures be?

    Did the Germans ever restore the Reichstag after that fire?

    Here is something that should scare you if anything can!!

    “Russia's Turning Muslim, Says Mufti” is the startling headline in the Times of London today. Ravil Gaynutdin, head of the Council of Muftis of Russia, announced that Russia's population of 144 million contains 23 million ethnic Muslims – and not, as the census indicates, 14.5 million, or, as the Orthodox Church estimates, nearer to 20 million. An estimated 3-4 million Muslims are migrants from former Soviet regions, including 2 million Azeris, 1 million Kazakhs, and several hundred thousand Uzbeks, Tajiks and Kyrgyz.”

    “Goble notes the exponential growth in Islam since the demise of the Soviet Union: Russia had about 300 mosques in 1991 and now there are at least 8,000, about half of which were built with money from abroad, especially from Turkey, Iran and Saudi Arabia. There were no Islamic religious schools in 1991 and today there are between 50 and 60, teaching as many as 50,000 students. The number of Russians going on the hajj each year, has jumped from 40 in 1991 to 13,500 in 2005. He quotes a Russian commentator predicting that within the next several decades there will be a mosque on Red Square.”

    “By 2015, Muslims will make up a majority of Russia's conscript army, and by 2020 a fifth of the population. When the Russian Army/Military becomes a Majority Muslim Military it will be the most advance “Muslim Army” in modern history! “

    gets VIP airport security tour
    Feds show CAIR latest screening steps,

    August 18, 2006

    The Department of Homeland Security
    took a Muslim group with known past ties to terror organizations on a VIP tour of security operations at the nation's busiest airport at the same time British authorities were working to break up a plot to blow up U.S. airlines.

    On June 21, a senior DHS official from Washington personally guided Muslim officials from the Council on American-Islamic Relations on a behind-the-scenes tour of Customs screening operations at O'Hare International Airport in response to CAIR complaints that Muslim travelers were being unfairly delayed as they entered the U.S. from abroad.

    CAIR is a spin-off of the Islamic Association for Palestine, identified by two former FBI counterterrorism chiefs as a “front group” for the Palestinian terrorist group Hamas.

    Several CAIR leaders have been convicted on terror-related charges.

    During the airport tour, CAIR was taken on a walk through the point-of-entry, Customs stations, secondary screening and interview rooms. In addition, U.S. Customs and Border Patrol agents were asked to describe for CAIR representatives various features of the high-risk passenger lookout system.

    JIHAD Against Americans is UNOPPOSED by Washington

    Muslim terrorist training camps that teach murder of non-Muslims and violent Islamic conquest of America are allowed. They are not considered the enemy. Homeland security informed America who are regarded as the enemy: peaceful, patriotic Americans – pro lifers, tea party attendees, returning war veterans who risked their lives for America. God help America.
    'Chilling' new video: How to slit throats
    Jihad maneuvers taught at New York compound
    December 15, 2009

    By Bob Unruh

    A new video released by the Christian Action Network shows Muslim women at a compound in New York state practicing throat-slitting techniques and assault weapons attacks.

    The video was distributed by the makers of the movie “Homegrown Jihad: The Terrorist Camps Around the U.S.,” which documents how a jihadist group has developed dozens of training camps across the nation.

    WND reported at the time how Jamaat ul-Fuqra has built 35 compounds – mostly in the northeastern corridor of the U.S.

    …The U.S. State Department's 1998 “Patterns of Global Terrorism” report notes the organization “seeks to purify Islam through violence.”

    The report continued, “Members have purchased isolated rural compounds in North America to live communally, practice their faith and insulate themselves from Western culture. Fuqra members have attacked a variety of targets that they view as enemies of Islam.”

    CAN, led by Martin Mawyer, has researched Muslims of America for years and has provided its video to the FBI, State Department and Homeland Security. To date, there has been no response from the government, the group said.

    …”Gilani has stated he is preparing his members to the Soldiers of Allah, and he's set up the most advanced guerrilla warfare training camps,” he said.

    The organization's “Homegrown Jihad” video includes a chilling scene of Jamaat ul-Fuqra's leader Sheikh Mubarak Gilani telling followers to “act like you're his friend. Then kill him.”

    According to the Religion of Peace website, there have been more than 250 jihad attacks by Muslims around the globe – including two inside the U.S. – in just the last two months.The death toll from the attacks has surpassed 1,400, the report says.

    Turkey's Prime Minister, Erdogan, publicly read an Islamic poem: “The mosques are our barracks, the domes our helmets, the minarets our bayonets and Muslims our soldiers…”

    From day one, Obama was eager to communicate to the Muslim global community that pleasing and submitting to Islam is his top priority.

    Obama's first official phone call was to PLO Muslim leader, Abbas. Immorally respected by past and present U.S. administrations, Muslim terrorist leader Abbas, financed the massacre of Israeli athletes at the Munich Olympic Games. Obama's first interview was with Al-Arabiya, Muslim TV station.

    In October, 2009, the Obama administration co-sponsored a UN resolution with Muslim police state Egypt to ban speech that defames religion (Islam). A massive attack that threatens the freedom of every non-Muslim on earth.

    G-D's eternal Biblical requirement for all humanity is kindness: Jewish Bible, Micah 6:8. 'And what does the L-RD require of you but to do justice, to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your G-D.'

    Way before Obama, Pres. Clinton should have begun Muslim Ideological Profiling (MIP) to screen Muslims for signs of radicalization and compile a govt. al-Qaida (database) for use in security screening. Instead, only Osama bin Laden seems to have been smart enough to do it, for the opposite purpose. With MIP, there never would have been a Muslim attack on U.S. soil, just a bunch of lamers shaking their fist at the U.S. from halfway around the world. Tell the govt. to quit upskirting non-Muslims and go to were the bombs will be found, on the bodies of radicalized Quran-thumping Muslims.

    Study Islam's 7th cent. rise and spread to see the threat of resurgent radical Islam, and how easy it is to tell them apart from secular Muslims.

    To Bob Hall:

    That Mr. Morris made a huge personal mistake several years ago is NOT relevant to the fact that this country's security has been gravely endangered. Mr. Morris is patriotic and cares about protecting Americans.

    Could you explain how you reached your conclusions? Is that how you explained your viewpoint when you were in school? If you want people to take your seriously, you really need to better than having a a fit.

  • Walt

    Is that your considered response to a very important issue? Are you capable of anything above a middle schooler's response to this? Finally, by your standard, Bill Clinton is not worthy of consideration either.

  • sorrydick

    And Charles Manson is patriotic too!

  • Walt

    I am curious. How Is Mr.Morris like Charles Manson? In what way did Charles Manson express any patriotism? Did he not promote race riots, as in Helter Skelter? Has he not ordered people to engage in ritual murder? Do you have some personal experience with his “Family” that you would like to share with us? Where does your special insight come from?

  • sorrydick

    On the eve of the Democratic Convention in September 1996, Morris was forced to resign as head of Pres. Clinton’s reelection campaign after Sherry Rowlands, a call girl with whom he had a long-term for-pay relationship, sold her story to the supermarket tabloid “The Star” for around $50,000. In the article, Rowlands revealed that Morris had a fetish for toe sucking, a fact that will always have a place in the TMI hall of fame.

  • Walt

    That is not exactly news to anyone here. Also, in what way does that prove or disprove what Mr. Morris has said? As I said above, if we used that standard President Clinton, not to mention the deceased President Kennedy, would be in the same boat. Would you actualy like to address the topic this time?

  • sorrydick

    The point is, you can be crazy and patriotic at the same time. But to be an anarchist and preaching hate mongering has to border on lunacy. Mr. Morris' comments can border on the lunatic fringe. Why we have fellow Americans that can believe any lunatic ranting that these extreme right wingers can mock up, is beyond me. To promote hate mongering of our President can not be helpful in anyway to our country.

  • sorrydick

    Walt, that is why I love our country… I am free to voice my opinions and you are free to voice yours… so live with it!

  • Walt

    “The point is, you can be crazy and patriotic at the same time. But to be an anarchist and preaching hate mongering has to border on lunacy.” Really, how does this all relate to Charlie Manson or Dick Morris? Charlie Manson really loathed the United States, so I just wanted to know how he was patriotic? As for Anarchism, do you know what that word means, or was that some filler word for you?

    Frankly, you do seem to be the most hate filled person on this forum, if you want an honest assessment. Have fun with your sniffing.

  • Len Powder

    Obama thought that closing Gitmo, bowing to the Saudi king and denouncing the US in a speech to Muslims would win the hearts and minds of Islamist Terrorists. Instead it's motivated them to take advantage of his policy of appeasement and self-condemnation. It's like telling a bully ” I know you hate me for being a coward but is that any reason to beat me?” Instead of telling him “You lay one finger on me and I'll make you sorry you did!” Which response is more likely to make the bully think twice? Don't ever tell a terrorist you're a friend unless you are a Muslim. Rather ask him to borrow his gun so you can end your misery by your own hand.

  • idviking

    I think we are well past the point where people think that this crap is not happening by design. No one on earth could be this stupid. The murders of the recruiter in Arkansas, Ft. Hood and the attempt by the underwear bomber all point to one thing. No one is placing responsibility on Islamic rhetoric that has facilitated it. Instead, in every one of these cases the PC goon squad has gone out of its way to either justify or apologize for the killers, usually before the victims bodies were cold.
    Why would anyone sane do that?
    I think they are sitting in the “situation room” brainstorming about ways to make sure political correctness can thrive in a time when there are attempted terrorist attacks almost every month now. Boy, it sure makes us look bad when one of these bombers almost gets through…
    I think the underwear bomber was purposefully not checked because of his race and religion. To prove a point.
    The evidence suggest from what is done and not said is that it is more important to not offend a Muslim who thinks it is his duty to kill all non-Muslims, than it is to protect his victims.

  • Len Powder

    Like many I have often asked myself if Obamacrats are stupid, insane, or diabolically deliberate in their actions and words. Those who adhere ridgidly to political correctness often defy common sense and appear to the rest of us to be stupid or mentally unstable. Michael Smerconish, in his book “Muzzled”, gives many examples of the insanity called political correctness. People have suffered for violating the dictates of PC. Those on the Left follow PC as if it were a religion. Leftist politicians are especially anxious about getting every vote they can to stay in power forever, including the dependent poor, Muslims, illegal immigrants, etc. Getting the Muslim vote is more important to them then protecting people who won't vote for them like evangelical Christians and conservatives. This is how I understand the lunacy we encounter every day in all areas of our lives.
