Another Reason to be Disappointed in Obama


As if this Libyan fiasco wasn’t enough.  This is from the Wall Street Journal.

The move is one of the Obama administration’s most significant revisions to rules governing the investigation of terror suspects in the U.S. And it potentially opens a new political tussle over national security policy, as the administration marks another step back from pre-election criticism of unorthodox counterterror methods.

  1. This is probably so he can go after people like me, with military training and “dangerous” right wing tendencies. 😉

  2. It feels like things are off the rails. Like that little clip today of Obama whistling and not getting into the White House, it’s like watching a parallel reality. Like he lives in another US with no problems.

  3. Sean,

    I’ll try extra hard to do one or both of the following:

    a. Not make you really mad; and
    b. Let you figure out exactly where I live.

    😉 (that’s a joke)

  4. Ha! I promise I’ll behave myself.

    Plus, I have never issued a fatwa. I’m promise. 😉
