    Incompetence is one thing, it's expected, Obama is nothing more than a community organiser. But dereliction of duty as CnC Dereliction of duty falls under United States Code Title 10 892. Article 92

    "ISIS is JV."

    Obama has been informed of ISIS for over a year and he doesn't have a strategy yet to deal with ISIS ?
    He knew ISIS was growing...but did he have foreknowledge of ISIS' offensive into northern Iraq? And in the VERY unlikely event that he did, how exactly is this a dereliction of duty since it does not involve Americans or American soil?

    Of course, we DID have a president who was repeatedly warned that a certain terrorist was planning a major attack on American soil and flatly ignored those warnings - "Okay, you've covered your ass" was the quote, but we can never blame things on him, can we?

    Heya Glen. ISIL was always in Iraq and yes he knew they were growing. Oh and Junior didn't have any specifics like BO had with Benghazi.

    According the the military they don't even know if Obama even reads the daily intelligence reports. Obama never commented or asked any questions about ISIS for over a year.

    As the article points out, every POTUS before Obama would be personally briefed every morning by a real member of the military. But I suppose Obama dispises the military so much he doesn't even want them personaly briefing him.

    Question is, is Obama that incompetent that he can't comprehend what he's reading or is he just derelict in his duties as CnC and not reading the briefings every morning ?

    1. ISIL was not "always in Iraq". They formed when the power vacuum formed.

    2. I have no problem with him knowing that "they were growing". Do you really expect the president to say, "I hear there's a terrorist group forming in a nation outside our borders - let's bomb them back into the stone age!"

    3. Never mind that even the House Intelligence Committee couldn't find that Obama had any specifics about what was going on in Benghazi before it was too late to do anything about it. But I get it - you know better than the House Intelligence Committee....

    And your assumption that he doesn't read the daily intel reports is based on what, exactly? Oh, I forgot - he doesn't have an (R) behind his name, therefore he must not read the reports given to him, huh?

    As the article points out, every POTUS before Obama would be personally briefed every morning by a real member of the military. But I suppose Obama dispises the military so much he doesn't even want them personaly briefing him.
    And you base this on what, exactly? Oh, I forgot - you despise him, therefore he must despise the military.

    Question is, is Obama that incompetent that he can't comprehend what he's reading or is he just derelict in his duties as CnC and not reading the briefings every morning ?
    Question is, what's your hard evidence other than your personal belief?

    Yes, they formed in Iraq and continued to Operate there after BO dropped the SOFA.

    I am sure they could of come up with some flowery prose to gloss things over with while using clandestine operations to effect impact.

    That still doesn't change what the Libyans told us 3 days in advance of the attack. Nor does it count the Z mans Video calling for vengeance of al Libi 3 days prior to the attack and specifically calling on Libyans to do so. Quite Specific, unlike when Junior was at the helm.

    1. Before Obama ever took office, Bush had agreed on removing U.S. troops from Iraq...and when Obama was negotiating with Iraq, they refused the SOFA we needed in order to keep Iraqi courts from putting our troops on trial. But I guess Obama's a traitor for not forcing the Iraqis from agreeing to the SOFA we required in order for us to remain there.....

    2. And I guess you do indeed know more than the Republican-controlled House investigations who could find NO fault in the Obama administration's response to what was going on in Benghazi. Thou Shalt Hate Obama With All Thine Heart For He Is At Fault For All That Is Wrong, huh?

    Oh, I guess you didn't know about Maliki visiting BO in Nov of 2013 and asking him for Tech and Air Strikes Right here at the WH and BO denying him.

    No the Republican controlled house knows what the Interim President of Libya at the time told the BBC.....they also know about the State Dept being told so by the Head of Libyan Security, and of course they did talk about those failings by State. Also that's why Gowdy is STILL taking Depositions. Guess you forgot about that.....since you thought the Republican controlled house had given up their investigation.

    I'm sure if the officer were to reveal who he was, he would be purged from the military like the other 200 high ranking officers who have already been purged by Obama.
