    Obama's Reverse Spin: "This Was A Screw Up"

    Obama's Reverse Spin: "This Was A Screw Up" - Crossroads - CBS News

    Speaking somberly and forcefully from the White House, Obama said the government had "sufficient information" to have potentially disrupted the attack, but that the intelligence community "failed to connect those dots." He spoke of the "the human and systemic failures that almost cost nearly 300 lives," and he vowed, "we will do better."

    He was more blunt in a private meeting with top advisers just before he spoke before the cameras: "This was a screw up that could have been disastrous. We dodged a bullet but just barely. It was averted by brave individuals, not because the system worked, and that is not acceptable."
    It's nice to have a president who can recognize the obvious, and state it publicly. Our Homeland Security Administration has no clothes.

    Wow. Not trying to sugar-coat things causes me to respect him a little bit more than I otherwise would have. Fair-play to him.

    How much blame should The Obama take for this 'screw up'?
    How much of this 'screw up' is His fault?

    Yeah, and it only took the Messiah two weeks to say it.

    Hello?

    He made his blunt statement off camera to his own staff.


    Also, he blamed the intelligence community, an organization he's been trying to destroy since he took office, and there was no suggestion that the buck stops at the Messiah's Altar.

    I'm sure many didn't notice the law breaking photo of the internal meeting posted in the news. Taking pictures in which a Secret document exists breaks every security rule in the book.

    So this isn't blunt?

    Does this mean we get to go to the bathroom on airplanes then? Or are we going to be punished for governmental blunders in a cynical ploy to make us feel safe?

    dhs is a subsidiary of the white house

    if dhs is broken, obama is responsible for not fixing it

    why did he pick napolitano, for example?

    why does he keep her?
