INTEL LET ME DOWN: Obama
Four-time Walkley Award winning political commentator and Churchill Fellow, has returned to the fray over concern that the integrity of news dissemination is continually being threatened by a partisan media.
“Oh what a bummer”, said Obama when asked yesterday to explain why he remained asleep at the wheel of a golf buggy for the past 18 months ignoring daily briefings warning him of the rise of the extreme terrorist group of Khorasan in northern Syria.
He has also been receiving military intelligence since January this year warning of the Islamic State’s build-up and imminent incursion into Iraq.
“Military intelligence underestimated ISIS and we (note we) overestimated the Iraqi army”, Obama said.
Crumbs! Was it an overestimation or a sublime stupidity that led him to believe that Iraq’s 30,000-strong majority Sunni northern force would stand and fight to protect Mosul from being overrun by a Sunni invasion of an original 800 fighters?
Now look at the mess! And it becomes exponentially worse each day that he refuses to re-commit ground troops to clean it up.
Obama had promised to “bring our boys back home”, thereby protecting his dumb Left and black electoral base. Well, that was enough to get him four more years, but it’s proving to be four more very costly years, and not just for him but for the world, as a new wave of terrorism sweeps west to waiting cells of Islamic discontent.
Obama’s dangerously low intellect is exemplified by how he has just handed his three greatest enemies Damascus, Tehran and Moscow a free kick each while he sits forlorn in the sin bin playing with his donger.
Syria’s tyrant al-Assad cannot believe his luck that Obama has been forced to bomb the crap out of the very terrorists he armed to defeat al-Assad.
Russia’s Putin is sporting an “I told you so” grin as he and his ally al-Assad delight in witnessing Obama struggling in quick-sand consisting solely of his own poo.
Iran’s Hasan Rouhani is in the spectacular position of actually being able to offer assistance to Iraq’s al-Abadi to defeat the Sunni invasion.
Wow! How’s that for an overnight tectonic shift in Middle East politics?
Meanwhile Israel’s Netanyahu, after having disposed of the Gaza menace all by himself, is sitting back enjoying a cup of tea watching Obama’s mid-term election plans unravel.
Obama has just presented the entire West, including Australia, with a home-grown Islamic terrorist crisis it didn’t have to have... well not yet.
On the up-side he has been able to get his golf handicap down from 20 to 18.
Then again, I know a few incontinent, aged lady pensioners in walking frames struggling with alzheimers, Parkinsons and dementia, who play off 18.
So, was it really worth it?
