Obama Administration Dismantling Anti-Terrorist Safeguards
In case you haven't figured it out yet, the Obama administration has successfully dismantled basic safeguards to protect Americans from terrorist attacks over the past year. It's more important that we not offend the Muslims than it is to protect the safety and national security of our country. A man named Abdul is allowed to board an international, Detroit-bound flight from Amsterdam with a ticket he purchased with cash, he checks no luggage and apparently doesn't even have a passport. Big surprise when he tries to detonate explosives as the plane approaches its landing over Detroit. Like bin Laden, the terrorist comes from an extremely wealthy family, is well-educated and had been living in a swanky London apartment. His father, a Nigerian banker, had warned the U.S. embassy of his son's radicalized Islamic beliefs at least six months ago to no avail. Abdul had recently traveled to Yemen and may have had contacts with the same al-Qaeda-linked cleric that Major Nidal Hasan conversed prior to his shooting rampage at Ft. Hood that left more than a dozen soldiers dead and dozens of others wounded. The British wisely refused to renew the man's visa after he was placed on a terrorist watch list. Obama's DHS welcomed the man aboard, a decision that nearly ended the lives of at least 278 passengers.
