Obama Surrenders the War on Terror


president-obama-at-the-national-defense-university-in-washington-dc“Don’t be afraid to see what you see,” President Reagan counseled in his farewell address. We would do well to heed his advice as President Obama attempts to lead America backwards, to September 10. Make no mistake: That was the not-so-subtle message he sent last week during his speech at the National Defense University—a speech that was so full of inaccuracies that one is left to conclude the president is either living in an alternate universe or willfully disregarding the facts. Just consider some of the statements he made.

1. “There have been no large-scale attacks on the United States, and our homeland is more secure.”

In fact, Nidal Hasan killed 13 people and injured 32 others during his shooting rampage at Ft. Hood in November 2009—an attack authorized by al Qaeda’s franchise in Yemen (AQAP). Since the U.S. Army—no doubt following orders far up the chain of command—refuses to classify the Ft. Hood shooting as a terrorist attack, the survivors’ injuries and acts of bravery cannot be categorized as “combat related.”

In addition, the Boston Marathon bombing was a large-scale attack carried out by individuals who were radicalized to jihad and trained by jihadist elements in Russia.

Moreover, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, inspired and trained by AQAP, almost took down a passenger plane in December 2009; and Faisal Shahzad, trained by jihadists in Pakistan, deployed an IED in Times Square in 2010. Just as catching a thief in the act doesn’t mean he hasn’t committed a crime, the fact that these attacks failed does not mean they were not attacks.

2. “The core of al Qaeda in Afghanistan and Pakistan is on the path to defeat…They did not direct the attacks in Benghazi or Boston.”

Like a five-year-old, the president seems to believe that if he says something often enough and loud enough, it will become true. In fact, al Qaeda affiliates did carry out the attacks on Benghazi. No matter what the final draft of those infamous talking points said, several of the attackers were al Qaeda operatives.

3. “Unrest in the Arab world has also allowed extremists to gain a foothold in countries like Libya and Syria.”

In fact, American acquiescence and aloofness have allowed extremists to gain a foothold in these places.

4. “In the 1980s, we lost Americans to terrorism at our Embassy in Beirut; at our Marine Barracks in Lebanon; on a cruise ship at sea; at a disco in Berlin; and on a Pan Am flight—Flight 103—over Lockerbie. In the 1990s, we lost Americans to terrorism at the World Trade Center; at our military facilities in Saudi Arabia; and at our Embassy in Kenya. These attacks were all brutal; they were all deadly; and we learned that left unchecked, these threats can grow. But if dealt with smartly and proportionally, these threats need not rise to the level that we saw on the eve of 9/11.”

In fact, President Reagan in the 1980s and President Clinton in the 1990s thought they were dealing with global terrorism smartly and proportionally. For Reagan, it was bombing command-and-control centers in Libya, deploying peacekeepers to Lebanon and hitting terrorist camps with air strikes and artillery. For Clinton, the “smart and proportional” policy included cruise missiles and indictments. But both approaches failed.

In fact, General Tommy Franks, former CENTCOM commander, traces a line from Beirut to 9/11.

“What did we see happen in 1983 in Beirut, Lebanon? We saw the interests of the United States of America attacked by terrorists,” he observed in 2007, pointing to a long list of attacks after Beirut that went largely unanswered. “I do believe there is a connection,” he said, “an indication served up to terrorists over the course of almost two decades that says it is okay to attack the interests of the United States of America without fear of serious retribution.”

5. After blaming just about every terrorist attack against the U.S. before and after 9/11 itself on “unrest in the Arab world” or “regional networks” or “radicalized individuals here in the United States”—and dismissing any connective tissue between them—Obama then declares, “Most, though not all, of the terrorism we faced is fueled by a common ideology.”

Which one is it? Are our terrorist enemies lone wolves, self-radicalized killers, independent nut-jobs, or are they motivated by a common ideology?

6. Obama re-re-reminded us that “Osama bin Laden is dead.” (Who knew?)

What the president fails to grasp is that “bin Ladenism” is anything but dead. The struggle against jihadism is a generational struggle that will be measured in decades, not presidencies. Don’t take my word for it. “The cancer has metastasized to other parts of the global body,” as then-Defense Secretary Leon Panetta explained in 2012. Those inspired by bin Laden, as the 9/11 Commission warned in 2004, “will menace Americans and American interests long after Osama bin Laden and his cohorts are killed or captured.”

7. “America’s actions are legal. We were attacked on 9/11…Under domestic law, and international law, the United States is at war with al Qaeda, the Taliban and their associated forces.”

In fact, although the U.S. government contends that a state of war has existed since September 11, 2001—a reasonable and defensible contention—the UN Human Right Council argues that it is “problematic” for the U.S. to show “it is in a transnational non-international armed conflict” beyond Afghanistan. Moreover, the UN recently announced plans to create “an investigation unit” within the Human Rights Council to “inquire into individual drone attacks…in which it has been alleged that civilian casualties have been inflicted.” This is not suggest that the UN is correct in these conclusions, but rather to underscore that just because the White House says something is legal does not necessarily make it legal.

8. “America does not take strikes to punish individuals; we act against terrorists who pose a continuing and imminent threat to the American people.”

In fact, according to The New York Times portrait of the inner workings of the drone war, the Obama Administration has embraced a controversial method for determining civilian casualties that “counts all military-age males in a strike zone as combatants…unless there is explicit intelligence posthumously proving them innocent.” And The Washington Post has reported that a growing number of drone strikes in Yemen have targeted “lower-level figures who are suspected of having links to terrorism operatives but are seen mainly as leaders of factions focused on gaining territory in Yemen’s internal struggle.” (Italics added.)

9. “To do nothing in the face of terrorist networks would invite far more civilian casualties—not just in our cities at home and our facilities abroad, but also in the very places like Sana’a and Kabul and Mogadishu where terrorists seek a foothold.”

This is the essence of Bush’s post-9/11 doctrine: take the fight to the enemy relentlessly—wherever he may be—in order to deny him the tools, wherewithal, territory and means to strike the U.S. homeland. Yet the thrust of this speech by Obama—and indeed Obama’s entire approach to the jihadist threat—is to do less, in fewer places, less often.

10. Obama warns that policymakers should not “view drone strikes as a cure-all for terrorism.”

Yet as Panetta famously put it, drones are “the only game in town in terms of confronting or trying to disrupt the al Qaeda leadership.” Moreover, Obama’s withdrawals from Iraq and Afghanistan, as well as his cuts to the defense budget, make reliance on armed drones inevitable.

11. “Success on all these fronts requires sustained engagement.”

Yet the president has sounded a general retreat from every battlefield.

12. “The best way to prevent violent extremism inspired by violent jihadists is to work with the Muslim American community.”

This is not true. The best way to accomplish this goal is to defeat the enemy at its source, to be “the strongest tribe,” as Bing West has written, to never wave the white flag—whether in Beirut in 1983 or Mogadishu in 1993 or the AfPak theater in 2013. As bin Laden once explained, seeing America “defeated in the three Islamic cities of Beirut, Aden and Mogadishu” fueled his global guerilla war.

13. “As a matter of policy, the preference of the United States is to capture terrorist suspects.”

In fact, The New York Times overview of the drone war describes President Obama as “at the helm of a top secret ‘nominations’ process to designate terrorists for kill or capture, of which the capture part has become largely theoretical.”

14. “There is no justification beyond politics for Congress to prevent us from closing a facility that should have never have been opened.”

This is one of Obama’s favorite memes—that opposition to his view is always political, never based on conviction. In fact, there are many justifications for not closing the terrorist detention facility at Guantanamo. Obama’s first secretary of defense—Robert Gates—called on Congress to pass legislation to prevent Gitmo detainees from being transferred into the United States. Bipartisan majorities in Congress have repeatedly made it clear—most recently in the 2013 National Defense Authorization Act—that Guantanamo detainees may not be transferred into the United States because they worry about escapes; they don’t believe host countries have the will or capacity to keep these men locked up; and perhaps most of all, they are concerned that if these terrorists are sent to stateside prisons, Guantanamo’s lifers would recruit other inmates to their jihadist cause and radicalize individuals who might be released. That’s something they cannot do from Guantanamo. Radicalization is a serious enough problem that the Department of Homeland Security announced in 2011 a federal-state effort to thwart “terrorist use of prisons for radicalization and recruitment.” Congressional testimony reveals that dozens of Americans who were radicalized to jihadism while in U.S. prisons “have travelled to Yemen to train with al Qaeda.”

15. “I look forward to engaging Congress and the American people in efforts to refine, and ultimately repeal, the [post-9/11] Authorization for the Use of Military Force…I will not sign laws designed to expand this mandate further…this war, like all wars, must end.”

This would be akin to President Eisenhower letting Congress (and the Soviets) know in, say, 1957, that he was ready to repeal the National Security Act of 1947 and shred NSC-68. The former retooled and revamped America’s military and intelligence machinery to wage the Cold War. The latter provided a roadmap for the long, twilight struggle against the Soviet ideology. Like the war on terror today, the Cold War was far from over in 1957.

Regardless of whether President Obama is tired of being commander-in-chief, tired waging a war of unknown duration, tired of Guantanamo and drones and flag-draped coffins, one thing is beyond debate: The enemy is not tired and is still very much at war with us.

    More to the point, the Islamist-in-Chief was NEVER interested in vanquishing Islamic terror, but he was intent on hitting various Al Qaeda heads in order to announce: mission accomplished! And this is one of the main reasons why Benghazigate is repeatedly lied about. In other words, if the war was won, then how was it possible that his "leading from behind" in Libya ended up in an explosive nightmare, not only in Libya but throughout the Mid East? -http://adinakutnicki.com/2013/05/18/benghazigates-nuggets-thinking-outside-the-box-leads-to-the-missing-most-intrinsic-piece-of-the-indictment-commentary-by-adina-kutnicki/

      • EarlyBird

        I've never understood the idea that we need to physically close Gitmo. But I do understand that we can't let people just rot there without any kind of processing. There are people there who probably deserve execution, and some who are surely innocent. But just leaving them to rot without any trial is something they do in Iran or Russia. It's become a symbol of this.

        And the reason Obama can't get changes made is the intransigence of the Republicans, you know, those lovers of democracy?

            So you are declaring, publically, that you are truly stupid. It's not about "hosting" anybody, it's about getting these people through some formal system of law, so we can execute those who need executing and free those who need freeing. Even noxious little cretins like you must be able to understand this.

          • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLNn2YflwNs Roger

            Unfortunately due to the capitalism-and-democracy-hating Democrats and other leftist enablers, we can't process them properly up to this point. Letting them go while we're at war is not an option any sane US patriot would entertain. Obviously that excludes you.

    Obama made it crystal clear that he was going to end the War on Terror, starting with the Iraq and Afghanistan fronts in that war as soon as possible. As I recall, he even put a deadline on the end, saying by the end of his first term (he said some specific year but I don’t remember what year he said), and now he’s saying 2014.

    I can understand getting beaten up, but I have a problem with sticking the chin out to make it easier for the bully to get his licks in.

    If he’s going to put a halt to our efforts in the War On Terror, why doesn’t he get our troops home right now instead of putting more of them in harm’s way for another year?

    • kaz

      you are so right. barack h "i will side with the muslims" obama has announced our surrender, and there is no sense whatever in keeping our military forces in peril. the fact is that we cannot defeat the real threat, islam, by sending a few troops to selected parts of the islamic world, and never should have sent them to begin with. there is a great, resounding, stunning, easy victory over islam hanging on a very low branch. all we have to do is take it, and there is nothing that islam can do about it. we should have achieved this stunning victory over islam on 9-12-01, but this victory was prevented by the execrable george w. "religion of peace" bush. our desperate need is to expel islam, all of it, both imported and home grown, from our nation.

We need to save money. Gotta go, me and Michelle are going to a Broadway play.”

    ISN’T OBAMA ANNOUNCING TO THE MUSLIM TERRORISTS that he will not retaliate against them so they don’t get mad at us and so it doesn’t bred more terrorism and recruits? Is that why he ordered a “STAND DOWN” in Benghazi? 99.9999% of Muslims HATE the West and not one has stood up for America!

    HE NOW, OFFICIALLY, has labeled all attacks, “POLICE ACTIONS” where terrorists will be found by the FBI and local police, and tried in CIVILIAN COURTS where people like MEDEA BENJAMIN, and Code Pink, would raise funds to pay for the best lawyers to get him off!

    “CLOSE GITMO” and bring them to our SuperMax prisons? Doesn’t he realize that terrorists would attack the place in hopes of CREATING A MARTYR on top of putting the surrounding city, and its citizens, in danger OF GETTING BEHEADED IN THE MIDDLE OF THE STREET???

    a lot of discussion about alqaida…..useless discussion. to quote a great american hero–mrs clinton, the firstblackfirstlady– “what difference, at this point, does it make?” whether the great american muslim, obama is right that alqaida is defeated, or if thinking people are right, and alqaida is live and well, is irrelevant. the fact is that islam is thriving. it wasnt alqaida that declared war on the united states in the 1790′s—it was islam. islam is our enemy. the only contribution of alqaida is a positive contribution. alqaida has done enough to wake us up and force us to recognize the peril of islam, and do the only right thing–expel islam from our country. only through the never ending efforts of the great islamic heroes, george w. “religion of peace” bush, and barack h. “i will side with the muslims” obama has the expulsion of muslims from our country been prevented. to survive the islamic onslaught, the west needs more alqaida, and a lot less bush and obama. with more alqaida we might, just might, come to our senses and expel islam from our country, achieving a victory over islam equal to lepanto, gates of vienna, tours, and the reconquista, that will have muslims foaming at the mouth in helpless rage for centuries. without alqaida, and with the continued treason of western governments, we will quietly submit to the religion of genocide just like george and barack want us to.

    Years ago, anti-Vietnam War activists made the proposal that the United States simply declare victory in Vietnam and end the war effort in that nation, and immediately bring the troops home. They believed that the proposal was absurd, of course, and only made it because they thought it highlighted one of the motivating factors for continuing the Vietnam conflict, to wit: at the time, the U.S. had never lost a war and each of our Presidents in turn was reluctant to be in charge when that event came about.

    Today, we have a President who takes that silly hyperbolic rhetoric seriously as U.S. policy.

    • kaz

      actually, that is the one thing that the antiwar activists were right about. the reason that declaring victory and leaving was good policy was that our government never intended to win the war to begin with, only to lose it indefinitely. bad strategy is better than worse strategy. after the tet offensive victory was turned into a defeat by our leftist media, and our government did not even contest that declared "fact" promoted by our nations enemies in media, the war was lost. we could have gotten the same terms of surrender in 1968 that we achieved in 1972, and saved half the casualties. we would never have heard of the traitors kerry and mccain as an additional benefit. we would also know jane fonda as a bad actress instead of an unpunished traitor. foreigners would have learned an important lesson: never side with america, but they learned that in 1975 anyway.

      • tagalog

        So what? Who cares?

        We didn't learn a thing from Vietnam. Even our military leaders, who we might have expected to know better, threw out all of the data compiled on counterinsurgency and guerilla warfare after Vietnam (what could possibly have possessed them to do that? Nevertheless, they did it).

        Vietnam is ancient history and only has value to the extent that some of its absurdities are being repeated today, because we didn't learn a single thing from that experience.

    —two Amtrak trains derailed in Connecticut,
    —a steel bridge failed in Washington that couldn't have failed from a semi striking a beam,
    —the juncture of two mainlines (BNSF and UP) and Highway M in Missouri had their THIRD derailment
    —a railroad trestle in Texas burns in a few seconds, indicating accelerants

    Pages 445-446 of my book National Wave of Foolishness:

    "These are terror events confirmed by government and various media sources to be by persons of the Islamic religion in the United States since 2001*:

    —November 5, 2009. Fort Hood shootings. 12 dead. 31 wounded.

    —October 29, 2009. Two Jewish men were shot and killed outside of a synagogue.

    —February 12, 2007. A Bosnian Muslim shoots 9 people, killing four, in Salt Lake.

    —July 5, 2002. An Egyptian shoots 6 people and kills 2 at the El Al (Israeli Airlines) counter at LAX.

    —October 2002. D.C. Sniper attacks. 10 killed and 3 critically injured by a sniper and his accomplice.

    These are terror events whose suspects are not known— or at least the suspect or suspects were not indicated to be known as of this writing*:

    —2011. Two incidents in which boulders were placed on railroad tracks near Madras, Oregon.

    —2009. A flu virus that incorporates Avian, Swine and Human genes enters the human population. Many die. As this combination of genes has never been seen before in nature, it is possibly the result of genetic engineering or otherwise has been manufactured.

    —March 16, 2007. Mainline trestle in Sacramento burns.

    —August 14, 2004. Willamette railroad tunnel on UP mainline is set on fire and burned. It will be months before the tunnel is repaired.

    —November 20, 2003. Railroad trestle near Chowchilla, CA set on fire and burned.

    —November 18, 2003. Railroad trestle on San Joaquin mainline set on fire and burned.

    —November 17, 2003. Central Oregon and Pacific’s Siskiyou tailroad tunnel set on fire and burned.

    —2002, exact date unknown as it was broadcasted on the news in California once that I heard and then I could find nothing more about it. 3,000+ cases of MRSA staphlococcus A in San Diego in 3 days.

    —July 2, 2001 Trestle near Kelso, Washington burns.

    —1999. A new and heretofore unknown strain of West Nile was first seen in the U.S. and Israel. Unlike prior strains, it kills birds, but, thankfully, is rarely lethal to people. It is also somehow able to survive in cold climates.

    —October 9, 1995. Sunset Limited. Amtrak passenger train sabotaged. 1 dead. 100+ injured. Group never heard from before or since claims responsibility.

    Terror events with suspects of unknown religious affiliation*:

    —Jan. 26, 2005. Metrolink train crash when SUV deliberately left parked on tracks. 11 dead and 180+ injured.

    What is almost funny in a throwing up sort of fashion are the excuses for the causes of railroad tunnel and trestle fires. It’s like they want people to know they are phoney. The claim on the Willamette tunnel was that sparks from the wheels started the fires. Think about that one for a minute. Can a you can start a railroad tie on fire with a spark or even a lot of them? Neither rock nor concrete burns, either.

    The Siskiyou tunnel excuse was ridiculous. The campfire of a transient? — in a bitterly cold location that would be very inhospitable to transients in the winter, in a place with no dry wood, under snow at 4,000+ feet of elevation in the wet, snowy and typically windy weather conditions in November?

    It would be hard to get the large, treated timbers of an old tunnel like the Siskiyou tunnel to burn without a high intensity forest fire or accelerants like gasoline— try getting a larger timber to burn with a small fire. Not much change of a forest fire in November. The inside of the Siskiyou tunnel was shotcreted, i.e., coated in concrete, which would have protected the timbers. A fire of sufficient heat to do the kind of damage needed to close the tunnel requires a very hot, sustained fire, such as that resulting from something like gasoline or kerosene or a forest fire.

    Ditto for the more modern Willamette tunnel.

    The steel and/or reinforced concrete supports, beams, girders, etc. of a modern tunnel or trestle do not burn. They can be damaged by high temperatures, though, and if the temperatures are high enough, steel loses strength.

    Any chance the rash of “industrial accidents” in chemical factories and similar explosive places since 2001 are just accidents? While such things happen, it seems strange that we've had so many of them since international terror organizations became so active.

    The Bush Administration broke more than 1000 terror cells in the three years after 911. One wonders how many more are out there.

    And how many have come in through our swiss-cheese southern border since 911?"

    "In fact, American acquiescence and aloofness have allowed extremists to gain a foothold in these places."

    Actually, Western intervention helped destabilize those places so the terrorists gain ground. By opposing Assad and Gadaffi the US effectively helped the terrorists. Just as the invasion of Iraq or aid to the Afghan Mujahideen was counterproductive.

    • tagalog

      When did Americans intervene in Syria? It's true we sent jets to bomb Khaddafi in Libya, but beyond that one-time retaliation for the Libyan terrorist attack on the airplane that crashed in Lockerbie, we didn't intervene in Libya eitther.

      What acquiescence did America engage in, in Syria or Libya? We left Syria alone, the desire of our own progressives and neo-isolationists. And we pretty much left Libya alone, except for the Reagan bombing incident. We left 'em to stew in their own 8th Century Islamic jiihadist juices. That was a mistake.

          • EarlyBird

            Well, that's not me, Roger. I think that Arab Muslims are barbaric and that they would be barbaric with or without the West.

            But they direct their barbarism at us because of our history of meddling in their societies and nations for at least 100 years. Even if you believe that meddling is warranted, objectively we have done so, and they don't like it.

            In the air, on land, and sea;

            Maybe you have a point. One of the first things our early military did was go and get involved in foreign wars due to Islam-o-phobia. Then we felt bad and had an iftar and tried to make up but every time a Republican / Islam-o-phobe got in POTUS office he'd run off to harass those poor innocent Muslims.

            It is our fault. Oh my allah.

  • John Svengali

    Obama's remarks, reflecting his thinking, are so far out of the ken of reality that they are in a class by themselves of complete naivety and rank incompetence. His childish persistence, typified by the administration's reluctance to call things what they are, terrorism, Islamism, Jihadism, indicate that mindset is that of fighting actual enemies with a language war of controlled media perceptions. It is tantamount to a child declaring, if I close my eyes, I'll pretend you're not there.

    Judging Obama by all measurements of presidential qualification and result, he remains the perennial rank amateur, a talker enamored with his own words over any semblance of reality, a fool who has blundered into foreign policy while at the same time ruining our economy and racking up unconscionable national debt. He was given a second term by hoodwinking the naive low-information voters, the radical American political left and by fraud, including using the Justice Department to thwart vote integrity efforts by states, as well as IRS to intimidate and restrain opposing conservative groups, and of course a compliant, lap dog media on the main, loath to breathe a syllable of criticism dear leader Obama. His only area of success is in getting elected and continuing the making of fantastic false promises. Domestically, in foreign policy and in defense, we've gotten what we elected, a delusional hologram pretending to be qualified as president.

      The irony is that our presence served Islamic jihadis at the time even before we let them attack us. We should have just allowed Israel to destroy them.

      What people don't know is that our interference in Israeli affairs, other than a few times during the cold war, has always served the jihadis. On the surface we're "helping" Israel but it's just payoff for tolerating those totalitarian barbarians who deserve to be destroyed. Leftists waste blood and treasure in Israel and the USA. They cause us to get involved as if they're saving lives and money when the opposite is true. They've turned the peace of victory in to wars of attrition and political losses more times than I care to count.

  • EarlyBird

    More lies. Obama did not surrender to our enemies. He declared that we would continue to hunt down and kill those groups and individuals who would harm Americans, and in fact his relentless drone war against AQ appears to have killed the Paki AQ's 2nd in command just a couple of days ago. So much for surrendering to his "buddies" the Islamists.

    Obama declared that we will define the scope of this seemingly endless war. That is a vital thing for a democracy to do.

    Sorry, you war-mongering, hysterical Neanderthals, but any Islamist group with beards who burn the Stars and Stripes out in some desert hellhole, even if it calls itself AQ, is not necessarily an existential threat to the US which needs the full force of our military. And in fact, chasing every single ghost with our army is the PERFECT way to lose our democracy and ultimately our entire nation. Read some history you idiots.
