    Obama Gets an F on Stopping Spread of WMD's

    Obama Gets 'F' on Stopping Spread of Weapons of Mass Destruction

    A bipartisan, independent commission on stopping the spread of weapons of mass destruction says that the Obama administration has failed in its first year in office to do enough to prevent a germ weapons attack on America or to respond quickly and effectively should such an attack occur.

    In a 19-page report card being published Tuesday, the Commission on the Prevention of Weapons of Mass Destruction, Proliferation and Terrorism, chaired by former Senators Bob Graham, a Democrat from Florida, and Jim Talent, a Missouri Republican, gives the new administration the grade of "F" for failing to take key steps the commission outlined just over a year ago in its initial report.

    Specifically, the commission concludes that the Obama administration, like the three administrations before it, has failed to pay consistent and urgent attention to increasing the nation's ability to respond quickly and effectively to a germ attack that would inflict massive casualties on the nation.

    The commission repeated its warning that unless nations acted decisively and urgently, it was more likely than not that a WMD will be used in a terrorist attack somewhere in the world by the end of 2013, and that the terrorists' weapon of choice would be biological, rather than nuclear.

    The administration's delayed response to the H1N1 virus, the report concludes, demonstrated that the United States was "woefully behind in its ability to rapidly produce rapidly vaccines and therapeutics, essential steps for adequately responding to a biological threat, whether natural or man-made."

    Even with time to prepare, the report noted, the epidemic peaked "before most Americans had access to vaccine."

    And a bio-attack, it warned, would have no such warning.

    The administration's lack of urgency was also reflected in its lack of priority on producing and distributing enough vaccines and other medical countermeasures for Americans, its reluctance to insist that hospitals have enough surge capacity to treat people who would be infected in a bioterror attack, and the lack of a national plan to coordinate federal, state and local efforts following a bioterror strike, the document asserts.

    The Graham/Talent WMD Commission, as it is known, is a legacy of the 9/11 Commission, which recommended its creation to examine WMD proliferation threats in its own report. In December, 2008, the WMD commission concluded in its final report that American national security faced ever growing threats from unconventional weapons, and from biological weapons in particular.

    1. Mutallab mattered measurably in Massachusetts.

    2. By all accounts, the mirandizing of Mutallab dominated the fateful final debate between the Obamite AG and the truck driving centerpiece model.

    3. Brown bellowed everywhere he went: it doesn't make sense for taxpayers to be replenishing lawyers' retainers for terrorists instead of simply killing em.

    4. I mean, that's what The Drone would do if he could get his gaunt, grasping fingers on em in Yemen.

    5. Obama's response to the Jingle Bells Jihadist was beyond obtuse.

    6. Coakley called it out as killing her.

    7. She's right.

    8. Massachusetts was a one-two punch: Harry's 60 on December 24, Mutallab on the 25th.

    9. The president's mouthpiece Press Secretary and security savant at Homeland Security BOTH reacted initially to Mutallab with self-congratulatory considerations that the system worked.

    10. The next day, on Waikiki, Obama offered up his definitive faux pax enfolding this fateful affair, calling the unsuccessful assassin, "an isolated extremist."

    11. A "criminal suspect."

    12. By Tuesday, it was "systemic failure," a "catastrophic breach."

    13. Heads would roll.

    14. Midweek, he's suggesting military movement into Yemen.

    15. Utterly incoherent.

    16. Comprehensively incompetent.

    17. Then we learned about the naughty Nigerian's connection to the mad imam, Al Awlaki, the same hater who hyped up the Fort Hood Hitman, Hasan.

    18. Had our intelligence done its job and followed up on Hood, it would have unmistakably stumbled onto the Yemeni's yelled warnings.

    19. And now the Pentagon's 86 page report exploring the egregious oversights that cost the US Army 13 unlucky lives in Texas fails to utter the unmentionables, "Hasan" and "Islam."

    20. How do you spell PC?

    21. Our impotent president proposes a partnership with Yemen to uproot Al Qaeda in the Peninsula, precipitously repulsed and now out of play.

    22. He orders foreign airports, including Syria's, Libya's and Iran's (LOL!), to do pat downs and suitcase searches.

    23. They frankly flip him off.

    24. Now Napolitano and HIG's Dennis Blair tell the Senate: National Security was NEVER EVEN CONSULTED before DOJ's Holder promptly lawyered up the punk and silenced him down.

    25. HIG was not prepared, confessed Blair, to apprehend wannabe martyr's within America's shores.

    26. Today we discover that interrogators of Mutallab, in those fast 50:00 before Gloria Allred called, did not even have access to intel dossiers already compiled on the suspect.

    27. No wonder the Son-Of-9-11-Commission, Graham/Talent, gives this addled administration an F.

    28. The White House's horrid handling of H1N1 weighed heavily on Their Honors' unhappy assessment.

    29. Terrorism as an issue is KILLING this president.

    30. And, POLITICALLY speaking, it aint goin away.
