    Obama Orders Air Marshall Surge by Feb 1: Race Against Time

    Exclusive: Air Marshal Surge - ABC News

    President Barack Obama has ordered a "surge" of federal air marshals to be in place by Feb.1 in what officials said was a "race against time," with other suicide bombers believed to be in the terrorist pipeline, although there is no specific imminent threat, federal officials told ABC News.

    Under a preliminary plan, the officials said the already existing federal air marshal force of more than 3,200 personnel would be deployed almost exclusively to overseas flights flown by U.S. carriers.

    Domestic high-risk flights will be covered by agents from other federal law enforcement agencies who were trained as air marshals in the wake of the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks.

    Some comments:

    1. From blase to PANIC in a week.

    2. All the way from "isolated extremist" and "the system worked" to "race against time."

    3. We're in "'a race against time' with other suicide bombers believed to be in the terrorist pipeline?"

    4. Well, let's all jet to Jamaica.

    5. Can't he see what such pronouncements do to the psychology of the people?

    5. Where's the steady hand, the maturity?

    6. Where's the consistency?

    7. He changes his position every day.

    8. Today he's suddenly NOT going to repatriate Yemenis from Gitmo.

    9. Yesterday, he was.

    10. He was gonna partner up with Saleh of Yemen to root out Al Qaeda in the hills, til he was bluntly rebuffed.

    11. He ordered airports in Libya (LOL!), Iran (LOL!), Syria (LOL!), and other nations known to be other than amenable to follow his pat-down directives verbatim.

    12. Naturally, they declined.

    13. He's BOMBING any bad guy in the desert he can set his sights on, but if he CAPTURES anyone alive he gets hauled before Judge Judy.

    14. He failed to follow leads that led directly from the Fort Hood hitman thru Al Awlaki in Yemen straight to Mutallab.

    15. He blames the FBI, he praises the FBI.

    16. He trumpets "actionable intel" pried from the punk, then turns him over to Holder's lawyers.

    17. To try to broker a PLEA BARGAIN.

    18. LOL!

    19. He sends his counterterrorism expert on the Sunday talks to mumble his incoherencies.

    20. Then the next day it breaks that Brennan was briefed, specifically, about briefs, warned by his Saudi counterpart in October about an underwear bomber that almost got him in August.

    21. The Pentagon came out today and announced that ONE IN FIVE released detainees have returned to the fight.

    22. He can't close Gitmo cuz there's no place to put em.

    23. When's the last time you heard anything about Thomson?

    24. TERRORISM is rising fast as a central political issue, and it's killing this president.

    25. He prioritizes his AGENDA over national security, which leads to all the loopiness.

    26. Underlying all is America's gut awareness of other features of the terrorism threat---the trial of KSM, the political prosecution of the CIA, Fort Hood.

    These dumb Democrats are going to cause us to die of a thousand cuts. Maybe he'll croak like Kennedy.

    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.
