    I don't claim that nothing is ever Obama's fault, but this is not one that is. He has nothing to do with calls that are made about SWAT teams in general. So unless you have solid proof otherwise, you are making a horrible assumption that this is his fault based purely on his partisanship. There is plenty that is that man's fault, but it is just plain wrong to blame him for everything.

    The shoe fits buddy. It's all about the mentality of the people you appoint as your senior staff, and how they end up commanding their posts.

    A mentally-ill man goes on a rampage, police agencies screw up their internal communication during the crisis... and it's all Obama's fault. Honest to god, some people only use their brains for a set decoration.

    He has something to say about security forces on a United States naval base.

    According to Radley Balko's book, "Rise of the Warrior Cop", it is not uncommon for SWAT teams to actually disengage in heavy situations. They did so at Columbine, also, for example.

    I guess they feel safer when breaking down doors at 3am and terrorizing 7 yr old kids and shooting family pets.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    So far in this thread...

    It's Obama's fault...
    SWAT teams are terrorists and pet killers...
    This is Benghazi all over again...

    Wait, why was no one armed at a naval base?
