All this casting blame and whining will accomplish is to further polarize the country at the worst possible time. I have never seen this country so divided on so many issues. I mourn for those eight American lives lost as I do for each one that we hear about. What if George Bush had taken 4 days to respond to 9/11?
Think about that and how we would have rightfully reacted. Obama deserves no quarter, no cover. He is an embarrassment is every aspect of his presidency.
On Obama's Watch: 'Afghan Suicide Blast Kills Eight U.S. Civilians'
From American Power
The politicization of national security is really accelerating today, with Democrats blaming former President George W. Bush for the attempted bombing of Northwest 253. See, "Dems Blame Bush Admin For Terror Attempt," and "EVERYTHING IS ALWAYS GOOD NEWS FOR REPUBLICANS ..." And others from the previous administration are causing some aggressive prevarication on the left. See, "Dick Cheney needs a reminder - 9/11 on his watch."
But we're a year into the Obama administration. Time for blame is long past. Just today, a devastating suicide blast has killed at least eight in Afghanistan. At the New York Times, "Afghan Suicide Blast Kills Eight U.S. Civilians," and from CNN, "8 U.S. deaths at military base in Afghanistan" (via Memeorandum):
Eight Americans were killed in a suicide bombing Wednesday at a military base in eastern Afghanistan, according to a U.S. military official and a U.S. Embassy official.
A suicide bomber wearing an explosive vest attacked Forward Operating Base Chapman near the district of Khost in Khost province, said a third official, who asked not to be named.
The military official said the eight people were not from the military.
There were conflicting reports as to whether the bomber walked into the dining facility or the gym at the base.
Folks will recall President Obama's disastrous indecision on the surge for Afghanistan. While the administration dithered, we've seen an escalation of bombings in the main Afghan theater, and Pakistan has deteriorated to a near-collapsed state, with audacious Taliban incursions and bombings almost daily.
As I've reported all week, the Democratic-left is not serious on national security. If we need partisanship, it should be in coordinating pressure on the Carter-esque Obama national security team to act, and to act with vigor and dispatch. Eight Americans lost their lives today (as of this writing), and nearly 300 died on Christmas Day. Since then leftists have been ridiculing conservatives for "wingnuttia," but while these Democratic idiots yammer away, global jihad tightens its grip on civilization.
I'm almost embarrassed to be an American with these people in charge. But at least we know Obambi's almost certainly a one-term loser.
For those eight Americans who died http://americanpowerblog.blogspot.com/2009/12/on-obamas-watch-afghan-suicide-blast.html
