obtuse obama is characteristically all over the place on this one
just like iran, just like afghanistan, just like gitmo, just like china---utterly incoherent
his arguments, his positions, DO NOT HANG TOGETHER
he started on this story by having his homeland secty say all was "clockwork"
then, he's all about "isolated extremists" and "criminal suspects"
and he's gonna conduct a "review"
next, he goes, "systemic failure," "totally unacceptable," "catastrophic breach"
now, he's suddenly suggesting military strikes vs yemen
how could anyone stand up for this guy?

"No religion is true, but some religion, any religion, is politically necessary. Law and morality are insufficient for the large majority of men.

if you're president, your argument needs to be credible
it therefore must be consistent, coherent, cogent
it must inspire confidence
how could anyone stick up for this guy?
he's not gonna be the same man tomorrow
