An Ol' Broad's Ramblings
I usually avoid the news on Sundays. Not much on FB either, so I don’t see a lot of what’s happened in those 24 hours or so. I wake up this morning to check Drudge, and what do I see? Years of treasure down the drain.
USA EVACUATES EMBASSY AS BOMBS, FIGHTING ROCK IRAQ...
Another town falls...
YEARS IN MAKING...
BAGHDAD FIGHTS BACK...
Photos said to show jihadists executing troops...
Vets watch as insurgents undo sacrifices...
'Died for nothing'...
BLAIR: 'It would be worse if we hadn't invaded'....
Iraqi soldier who fought with Americans says decision to flee left him feeling ashamed...
Kerry hints at seeking help from Iran...
Well, we all know al Malaki screwed up when he dismissed so many from the Army, and other positions, because they weren’t the ‘right’ kind of muzzie. Yeah, that was brilliant.
But we also know that Barack Hussein Obama is no Commander in Chief. He never looks at the BIG picture, never considers the consequences of his actions. Basically, he’s like a four year old with lots of fancy toys, and a fat salary.
There is also something else those of us in the west don’t understand. We can NOT expect a country that is run by religious fanatics, even if they claim to be secular, to become a democracy! Their cult of death and anything resembling a democracy just don’t mesh, and people are being slaughtered.
What is more disgusting is that those who poured over the border with Syria are the same ones that Obama and crew were arming. There’s been a rumor flying around that the reason Chris Stevens was in Benghazi that night meeting with the guy from Turkey was that they were talking arms deals. The animals in Libya then got a hold of all those weapons that weren’t secured in that country, and since then, all hell has been breaking lose in a number of countries.
Now, I honestly don’t give a damn if the sunnis kill the shias, or the shias kill the sunnis, or the wahabi yahoos kills themselves, or whatever. What I DO care about is that this insanity could spread to the borders of Israel and our illustrious leader will do what he always does…..think about it, and play golf.
BHO has brought shame to this country. He has brought shame to the greatest fighting force on the planet. He has done enough damage. It’s past time for him to go!
Do you ever feel like you’ve woken up in a parallel universe? I’ve been having that feeling for the last 5 1/2 years, and it seems to be getting worse. I’m not sure how I got here, but I’d like to find the exit now….please. I want to go home.
I use to live in a place where, with hard work, people could succeed, or fail, on their own merits. Children were reasonably educated, and mostly respectful of their elders. Sex wasn’t 24/7 on the idjit box entertainment, including commercials, and sex before marriage was frowned upon. People knew when they had done something wrong, and felt shame. Most people took responsibility for their actions, apologized when they screwed up, and tried to rectify the situation.
Come to think of it, the universe of yesteryear has been slowly colliding with this one for quite a while. I guess I really didn’t notice it as much as I do now. This universe has become the upside down world of now, and I’m not real fond of it, if I do say so myself. I want to go home.
When did the two universes become completely switched? Well, I’d say the real collision began in 2007, and became complete in 2009. Since then, I have been living in a world I don’t recognize, and don’t particularly like.
Why 2007? Well, if you’ll remember, that’s when the gavel was handed over to Nancy Pelosi, and things started getting completely out of hand. We had a Democrat controlled Congress, and the irresponsible spending became the norm. Oddly enough, that’s why the Republicans had lost, the excessive spending. I guess the country thought that the Dems would keep their word, and be responsible. That’s what you get when you have uneducated voters. I’m not saying they are stupid, just ignorant. Democrats have always loved to spend other people’s money. Why would the country think this time it would be better?
George W Bush has been blamed for the excessive spending, and maybe in some ways, he does bear some responsibility. That TARP deal wasn’t a good idea. It just started the ball rolling. Now, we can’t seem to get those in Congress to understand, it’s not their money they keep giving away. The country is hurting, but they keep using dummied up numbers to tell us everything is just peachy. 6.3 (?) unemployment? How about more like 12 %, and it’s even higher in the Democrat control inner cities.
Our economic outlook seems bleak. Unless WE get control of those who are suppose to be working in our best interest, it’s going to get even more bleak.
Yes, we’ve been fighting two wars, and that does put a strain on spending. But instead of supplying our military with the equipment they need to do the job, they have been stripped to bare bones, using what little they have to try to fight and enemy that doesn’t care about the Rules of Engagement, and uses ours to murder those in uniform just trying to do what they were trained to do. They come home physically, mentally, and emotionally maimed, and what does our government do to thank them? Put them on waiting lists, perhaps hoping they’ll die instead of getting the care they need, and deserve.
In the last 5 1/2 years, I have gone from being proud of my country, to absolutely appalled. This must be a parallel universe, because no rational people would put an incompetent, anti-American person in charge. There’s a reason the Founders created 3 separate branches of government. A separation of powers is necessary for a true Republic to function. The duties and responsibilities are laid out in plain English in the U.S. Constitution. Those lines of separation have been so blurred in recent years, I’m not surprised that so many have their heads in the sand.
Have you ever watched some of those videos where a guy asked people on the street to name the three branches of government? Most can’t name them. That’s truly embarrassing, and those who were hired to educate them should be extremely ashamed. Mind you, these are typically college students that are being asked the questions.
Yes, I am definitely in a parallel universe. No rational person would give billions of dollars to the enemies of our nation, and our allies, the enemy our young men and women are fighting. No rational person would make it more difficult for those same young men and women to do their job, to the point that the Rules of Engagement, put into place by politicians who have never worn a uniform, are getting them killed, and maimed.
No rational person would trade 5 top ranked enemy combatants, those who have plotted, and murdered American citizens, on and off the battle field, for one lone person, who many of his comrades are saying is a deserter, and possibly an active collaborator. No rational person would give in to the demands of the enemy, and hand over hardened enemies of the United States, with the flimsiest of excuse for such actions, and nearly no conditions placed upon them after their release. This is most definitely a parallel universe, where the purpose of war is not to win, but to placate the enemy.
This is not a sane world where I was born. This has become a very dangerous place to live, and I want to go home!
….and show ‘em ALL the exit!
Now, some folks are going to say I’m being unfair to judge all by the actions of a few. Few? Really? When we have KNOWN terrorist training camps right here in the U.S. of A., I don’t think I’m being unfair at all! (For a list of known locations, click here.) Yes, there is even one outside of Dover, Tennessee (northeast of Nashville), although the media refuses to acknowledge that fact.
Once upon a time, folks came from all over the world to live the American Dream. Now? Even though many are still striving for that dream, many others are coming to change the U.S. into the hell holes they left behind, muslims being the worst of the lot. They want to change our laws to suit their cult beliefs, and if we don’t comply, there are lawsuits, using our legal system against us.
I’m fairly sure not all muslim coming here want to destroy the U.S., and many do want to leave the evil behind. Those wouldn’t really be considered true muslims, like those following the dictates of an evil pedophile murderous ‘prophet’. But many are spreading their hate throughout the nation, and we, sadly, are allowing it to happen.
Let’s take, for example, a young fellow in Florida who wanted to blow up bridges, or perhaps law enforcement offices, or, better yet, blowing up a ‘party district’, then spraying the first responders with automatic fire. Yes, indeedy, a true example of islam at its best!
Have you heard about the ‘cutting parties’? Did you know that 150,000 to 200,000 young girls are taken to their country of origin to be sliced and diced? They called it FGM, or female genital mutilation, and even though I’ve found no evidence of it be an actual part of islam, or mentioned in the quran, it is a practice in many muslim countries and cultures to mutilate women, this is just one of many ways that islam brutalizes women, and young girls. Even though the quran does say that women have the same rights as men (2:228), it also states that men are superior to women. What a load of hogwash! In my opinion, these cultures that insist on female circumcision should also insist on male castration! Fair is fair, right? FGM is illegal in most rational Western countries, including the U.S., but it still is happening. We close our eyes to such a ‘culturally sensitive’ issue.
After all the blood our young men and women spilled ousting one of the many barbarians in Iraq, murderer of his own people, the Iraqis threw away their chance for true freedom, and allowed the shi-ites to become their new dictators. Pedophilia and rape is the name of the game. Hussein was evil, but at least the women had the freedom to get an education, and decide their own course, unless, of course, they caught the eye of Saddam’s boys, then it was a whole ‘nuther ballgame. Now, women in islamic areas of the country, which is pretty much the whole place, are subject to the same brutality that is shared by all muslim controlled countries.
Did you know there have been 70 mulim terrorist attacks in the U.S. since 1972? Considering the penchant of muslim violence, that really doesn’t sound like a lot. But that’s just on U.S. soil. The attacks on U.S. interests around the world is MUCH highers, as is the body count.
There are several groups working in the U.S. to undermine our Constitution, most notably is the Muslim Brotherhood, and C.A.I.R. Sadly, this administration embraces both organizations, and ignores the threat to our sovereignty.
One issue that has been largely ignored is the southern border. Oh, yes, we do chat about the numerous illegals crossing the border, but this has been focused on the Mexicans and others from farther south. Yes, this is a great concern. However, do we ever consider the OTMs? Sadly, no. Channel 2 in Atlanta had an investigative report a few years ago that addressed this issue, but not one thing has ever been done to resolve this very serious problem. The Obama Regime wants new Dem voters, so the border remains porous. The safety of the United States citizens is not, and never has been, a priority.
The 1st Amendment grants citizens the right to freely practice their religion. Islam is not a religion. It is a cult, one that promotes murder. Our laws do not permit such actions, therefore, it is not a violation of a muslim’s 1st Amendment right to prevent the practice of such evil.
Allah is NOT God! Yes, it is way past time to slam the door in the face of islam.
Mr Bucci says the enemy is harder to pin down now than it was previously. I beg to differ. The enemy is the same. Islam. Islam is the enemy of freedom the world over. Wipe out Islam, this particular war is over. It’s just that simple.
I doubt the victims and their families don’t give a flying flip whether it was the “A” team, or the JVs who murdered and injured. Mr Obama needs to pull his head out of his hinder, and face reality. He might have enjoyed that caterwauling as a kid, but it’s the ones doing the caterwauling that are murdering innocent people!
These Words from Obama Are Frightening — and Revealing
Steven Bucci – The Foundry
It’s less than comforting to hear the President make light of terrorist threats.
In a recent interview with The New Yorker, President Obama referred to today’s al-Qaeda fighters as the “jayvee” team.
“The analogy we use around here sometimes, and I think is accurate, is if a jayvee team puts on Lakers uniforms that doesn’t make them Kobe Bryant,” he said.
This shows that the Administration’s wishful thinking about al-Qaeda isn’t over. Obama and his fellow officials seem to think if you say something enough times, it will become true.
In May, 2008, 1Lt. Michael Behenna found himself in Afghanistan interrogating a terrorist who had killed two of his soldiers. Suddenly, the terrorist lunged for Lt. Behenna’s pistol. Fortunately Lt. Behenna’s reflexes were faster than the terrorist’s and he was able to fire a bullet into his chest and head, killing him. By any measure it was good shooting.
When someone attacks you, you have the right…nay…the DUTY to protect yourself!
But Lt. Behenna was charged by the Army with premeditated murder and found guilty of doing what he had been trained to do – kill terrorists. He was sentenced to 15 years in prison. The seven men who found him guilty are non-infantry officers. That means their combat experience is limited and they haven’t had to stare death in the face where the fastest and most accurate shooter lives.
No one who has never served in combat, especially in today’s combat, should EVER be allowed the actions of such a hero! EVER!! Those seven men are guilty of more than just stupidity!
There is no such thing as being guilty of the premeditated murder of an Islamic terrorist. The deaths of all terrorists merit premeditation. And Lt. Behenna merits a presidential pardon, but that won’t happen. Writing in his memoire, former Secretary of Defense Robert Gates says that President Obama is distrustful of America’s military officers so he would have no reason to believe that Lt. Behenna acted appropriately.
Terrorist constantly murder innocents, and it’s ALWAYS premeditated. They PLAN the murders. How can anyone say otherwise? All should be lined up and shot. No trial needed. Guilt is already proven by their actions!
Similarly, Lt. Col. Matthew Dooley, a highly decorated combat commander, was reassigned from Afghanistan back to the US to teach a course entitled “Perspectives on Islam and Islamic Radicalism” at the US Joint Forces Staff College. The curriculum Lt. Col. Dooley was assigned to teach was approved many years ago, but for some reason did not come to the attention of Muslim special interest groups until Lt. Col. Dooley arrived. Fifty-Seven Muslim organizations signed a letter to the Department of Defense demanding that training materials offensive to them be purged and instructors disciplined.
Muslims don’t like the truth. They lie on a regular basis, and whine when their lies are not believed. I don’t give a rat’s ass if they are offended by the truth. Perhaps it’s time to eject them from our nation, and screw the PC BS!
Sun Tzu said to know your enemy. Well, we know him. He’s a brutal animal, with no conscience. You fight a war to win. Screw the hearts and minds. Demand respect! With a commander in chief that sides with the enemy, no war will ever be won. Persecuting those who fight the wars will lose the warriors. But that’s his intent, isn’t it. To totally decimate the military? Perhaps he should remember, not all warriors are in uniform.
This video was uploaded nearly 2 years ago. We’ve known the movement of muslims in the U.S. has increased in recent years, imposing sharia where they can, and spewing their filth in our schools, pushing islam on the unsuspecting, and totally ignorant. I don’t care what Bush said after 9/11. Islam is NOT a peaceful religion. It is not a real religion. Allah is NOT God. We do not worship the same deity.
Blueish shared this video, in a comment, and I felt it was important to post it here. If you want to learn about islam, Religion of Peace has an amazing amount of information. Our government does NOTHING to keep us safe from these barbarians, and the current occupant of the Oval Office is actually inviting them in, and giving them OUR money to support them.
Tear down the mosques, salt the earth, and kick all the murderous barbarians out of this country. Deny the entry of any muslims. This is not a religion protected by the 1st Amendment. This is a political move to dominate the entire world with 7th century ideology.
Fort Hood shooter Nidal Hassan was found guilty on all counts of premeditated murder and attempted murder Friday, making him eligible for the death penalty.
Sentencing was set for Monday.
A military jury deliberated for roughly one day before announcing the verdict.
Hasan sat emotionless, stroking his beard as the verdict was delivered.
He was charged with 13 counts of pre-meditated murder and 32 counts of attempted pre-meditated murder in the Nov. 2009 shooting attack at the sprawling Texas military base.
Yes…it was ‘pre-meditated’. It was a freaking act of TERRORISM! On OUR Army base!! And it was FOURTEEN murdered! It royally pisses me off that they refuse to count the unborn CHILD!
Sen Ted Cruz released this statement:
I hope and pray this verdict will bring some peace to Nidal Hasan’s victims and their families. But if we ever hope to defeat the ongoing threat from radical Islamism, we need to start by calling this terrorist attack on our armed forces by its name. Hiding behind “workplace violence” and excluding evidence on Hasan’s pursuit of jihad will not make terrorism go away or properly honor the American heroes who were slain at Fort Hood on November 5, 2009.
STOP SHAFTING OUR MILITARY HEROES!! He murdered 14 human beings in the name of that fake god of his. This was an ACT OF TERROR, perpetrated by a raving lunatic, member of the military, who SHOULD have been in a loony bin a LONG time ago. Political correctness murdered those 14 people!
…I had my suspicions about this whole embassy and consulate mess before I read this piece. Now, don’t get me wrong, I still think Jones is a fruit cake, but sometimes, he does get it right. I wonder if this is one of those times?
A high-ranking Yemeni security official has told McClatchy that the Obama administration’s recently announced terror threat which supposedly targeted US embassies had “no basis in fact” and was manufactured merely to dampen opposition to drone strikes.
After initially warning of a terror plot “thought to have been one of the most serious against American and other Western interests since the September 11 attacks,” the US closed 20 embassies and consulates earlier this month, 18 of which reopened yesterday.
I often get the feeling that the Obama administration is doing a LOT of dog wagging. Here we have a possible BS threat on the one hand, but are we watching what is going on in the other hand? Sadly, no. There are a whole slew of distractions that Obama and clowns come up with so we won’t pay attention to what is going on in our own backyard.
The announcement of the threat against US embassies also served to justify blanket NSA surveillance, leading some to suggest that the alleged plot was being hyped to distract from the Edward Snowden scandal. It was later claimed that the NSA had intercepted a “conference call” of Al-Qaeda members during which militants discussed an attack.
Yeah…well…sorry! But THAT doesn’t cut it! There is NO excuse for the NSA to be spying on law abiding American citizens. If they want to spy on someone, they need to stick to the ENEMY, not the PATRIOT!
“There are strikes that kill civilians. There are strikes that kill women and children. And when you kill people in Yemen, these are people who have families. They have clans. And they have tribes. And what we’re seeing is that the United States might target a particular individual because they see him as a member of al-Qaeda. But what’s happening on the ground is that he’s being defended as a tribesman,” said Johnson.
I don’t mean to be tacky, but I’m going to be anyway. As far as I’m concerned, ALL muslims are potential terrorists. I’m not crazy about the idea of killing children, anywhere, for any reason. Children can be ‘re-programed’ not to hate, usually, as long as they can be gotten away from that book of hatred they call ‘holy’.
Figures show that 50 civilians are killed for every one terrorist taken out by a drone strike, which means that 95% of the victims are innocent men, women and children.
Those aren’t good odds. I thought we had gotten better at pin pointing the bad guys? Is someone getting some bad training? I know that in any war, and yes, contrary to what some will tell you, this IS a war…a war against evil…there will be collateral damage, however, unless those drones are capable of specifying a target, without the excess damage, then perhaps someone should rethink the use of them? Just a thought.
As Ron Paul notes in his column today, while the Obama administration is conducting drone strikes in Yemen to supposedly target Al-Qaeda terrorists, the White House is simultaneously supporting the allies of Al-Qaeda terrorists, the vast majority of whom have pledged allegiance to Al-Qaeda, in Syria.
Nope, not a Ron Paul fan either, but like Jones, he does, occasionally, get it right! The lack of logic in this administration is mind boggling. The hypocrisy is rampant! They are aiding and abetting the enemy in one country, and killing them, plus many, in another. Where’s the common sense? Oh, that’s right…this is the Obama administration…there is NO common sense! Nor is there any loyalty to the country, or her allies. They have made a HUGE mess, and someone in the future, is going to have to clean it up. That will NOT be easy, since few of our ‘allies’ have any trust in us anymore. Shoot, I don’t trust us!
….GIMME A BREAK!!!
Why anyone would even want to travel to these countries these days, is a question I can’t answer. Ok, I’ve no doubt people do business with them, but why? They promote terrorism, they will cheat and lie to get their way. Why do business with people like that? Do WE have no honor? I guess not!
I was surprised to hear they had even closed the embassy in Israel, but are reopening it. Uh…why? Israelis aren’t the threat, and they have the BEST security measure in the world! I never felt fear when we were over there. When we went to Jordon, I wasn’t all that comfortable but Israel? Pfft! I’d rather walk down the streets of Jerusalem in the middle of the night, alone, than broad daylight in the middle of a crowd, in Chicago!
The phony POTUS told us that al Qaeda was on the run. Well, as with most of his proclamations, that was total BS, and we all knew it. Well, maybe not the media, because whatever he says, to them, it’s gospel. Shows ya just how ignorant, and TOTALLY out of touch THEY are, doesn’t it! Hey…didn’t he tell us they would do whatever it takes to bring those who attacked and murdered our citizens to justice? Yeah…that was another BS proclamation. We know who, we know where, we ain’t doin’ DICK!
Ok, so listening to the bad guys got the chatter. This is what all that gobbedly gook is suppose to do. What it is NOT suppose to do is track law abiding American citizens, going about their every day business, whether or not that business involved slamming this administration for it’s feckless, and DANGEROUS, policies, or not.
The federal government’s job is to protect the citizens, and they really suck at it (Brian Terry), so perhaps we need to revamp? Just asking. Protecting our interests abroad? They aren’t too good at that either. Just ask Chris Stevens, Sean Smith, Glen Doherty, and Tyrone Woods.
Where NOT to Travel This Month
Amy Payne – The Foundry
The State Department closed 21 U.S. embassies over the weekend and issued a travel alert for Americans regarding the Middle East and northern Africa, warning of possible terrorist threats in the region.
Where did the intelligence come from that prompted the caution?
As NBC’s Brian Williams said, “It all began with an intercepted communication.”
An official says three children and their father died when their car hit a bomb on a road in western Afghanistan, the latest deaths in a sharp rise in civilian casualties.
Farah province spokesman Abdul Rahman Zhawandai says the family was driving early Tuesday when their car hit the buried bomb. The father and children were killed instantly. The mother was critically injured.
Civilian casualties have soared in recent weeks as insurgents attack around the country to test the Afghan security forces, now that international troops have stepped back.
The United Nations says that in just two weeks, violence has killed or wounded 412 civilians, up 24 percent over the same time last year. The U.N. blames insurgents for 84 percent of those deaths.
Insurgents? Excuse me, but can we PLEASE call them what they are? TERRORISTS! ISLMAMIC TERRORISTS! Murderous pedophile thugs who kill indiscriminately, not caring who dies, including themselves!
That fool up in D.C. declared the ‘war on terror’ over back in April of 2012. Someone forgot to tell the TERRORISTS that the ONE had spoken, so they failed to lay down their arms, roll over and play dead. Someone also needs to inform that same fool that this will never end until Islam is completely wiped off the planet, or when the REAL Messiah returns…when Islam WILL be wiped off the planet. :D Pay back will not be pleasant for them!
Yesterday, I made a post about our non victory in the Middle East. In the comments, The Bunker left a link to a video. After watching it, I felt I must post it, not the scrubbed version, but the actual, language, perverts and all! What the hell are we doing there? We beat the crap out of them in the initial attack, and then someone decided our men were suppose to win hearts and minds? Excuse me, but BULLSHIT! Dealing with this kind of garbage, is it any wonder that an average of 22 vets are committing suicide every day? As far as I’m concerned, the whole damn place should be turned into a large field of glass. I see NO reason for our, or any other nation to be there, attempting to save their sorry asses! If they can’t take control of their own country, then why do the morons in D.C. believe we could do anything to convince them they should?
Yes…. I am disgusted that the greatest military in the world has been reduced to this! That country if full of sick, sadistic, pigs in positions of power, and we do nothing but ask for the locals help in stopping it? Field….of….GLASS!!
On this Memorial Day, remember there are still many fighting and dying, attempting to do their job, but have been given the shaft by their own government…. the same politicians that are only there, and in D.C., for the photo ops and pay checks. I am FED UP! They were sent there for a purpose, and the politicians got in the way!
Judging by what Mr Obama said concerning the TERROR attack on the British soldier, it is my opinion that he has totally lost touch with reality….if he was ever IN touch…which is becoming more and more doubtful. I can actually empathize with Mr Obama. I want it all to be over…I want the bad guys to disappear into whatever hell awaits them, but reality is something completely different from what I want, and apparently, from what he appears to really believe.
No Mr Obama, you do not have al Qaeda on the run. There has been no decrease in Islamic terrorism. Quite the opposite, especially under your WEAK watch. As of 9:53am, 24 May 2013, there have been 20,934 known acts of terror, worldwide, several of which you REFUSE to label as such, for reasons known only to you. I suspect your sympathies towards the Islamists have something to do with your break with reality.
No matter what name these groups choose to call themselves, for the most part, they are Muslim. Your failure to recognize them as such, and the war they have declared on the civilized world tells them what they need to know about you. You are not a leader, strong, weak, or anything in between. Our allies know it. We know it, as well.
President Obama Is Tired of Fighting Terrorism
James Carafano – The Foundry
“We shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender…”
These were words President Obama never used during his speech at the National Defense University yesterday. Rather, he said anything but anything that sounded like Winston Churchill’s immortal speech about defiance in the face of the march of tyranny.
In large part, there was nothing new in the counterterrorism strategy the President announced. Flash back to 2011—that was the real turning point. Before then, Obama really followed what was called “Bush-lite,” pretty much the same tactics as the previous Administration—just dropping all the rhetoric.
The war of ideas was completely banned from the Obama lexicon. Islamist terrorism became “violent extremism.” Terrorism became “senseless violence.” In 2011, however, Obama shifted course dramatically. More than dumping the war of words, the White House signed off on a new counterterrorism strategy that amounted to running away from Iraq and Afghanistan as quickly as possible and limiting the offensive campaign to whacking top-level al-Qaeda with drone strikes.
The new strategy was bound to fail, fighting the last war while al-Qaeda evolved into a global insurgency that has spread from Pakistan to Nigeria.
A couple of items on Drudge caught my eye this morning:
The federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives said Wednesday that it is offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of those responsible for stealing 559 pounds of explosives last month near Red Lodge.
Items stolen included emulsion-type explosives, explosive cast boosters and detonating cord.
The number of names on a highly classified U.S. central database used to track suspected terrorists has jumped to 875,000 from 540,000 only five years ago, a U.S. official familiar with the matter said.
Among those was suspected Boston Marathon bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev, whose name was added in 2011. The increase in names is due in part to security agencies using the system more in the wake of the failed 2009 attack on a plane by “underpants bomber” Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab in Detroit.
Intelligence and law enforcement officials acknowledged in Congress that they had missed clues to that attack despite Abdulmutallab’s name appearing in the main database, known as TIDE.
Now, I’m not saying that the two are connected, but when ya stop and think about it, we have evil people, ignored (missed clues) by the administration, in our country trying to blow up innocent men, women, and children, and that number is increasing on a regular basis. So, if I were an evil muzzie thug murderer, where would I go to find easy pickins’ for materials to blow people up? Hmmm…
