Obama: A Study in Futility

01“Never in modern American history has a president been as inept in all of the most important facets of presidential responsibility as has President Barack Obama. Not even did the legendarily incompetent President Jimmy Carter fail as widely and seriously as Obama. The problem is that Carter’s damage has now already been realized and passed, while many of the disasters from Obama’s malfeasance are still in gestation.”   Colonel Tom Snodgrass

The most dangerous Obama failing in national security is his denial of the existential danger of Islamic jihad, in the face of the irrefutable imperialist-jihadist aggression mandated in Islam’s sacred book, the Quran,  in Islamic jurisprudence, the sharia, and in the compilation of teachings and practices of Muhammad, the Sunna, all three of which command conquering the entire world for Islam.   Obama’s unexplainable  willful blindness and deliberate distortion of the “peaceful nature of Islam” has led to his contemptible handling of the Arab Spring and the attendant Benghazi fiasco.

Obama’s “Arab Spring,” also known as the “Islamic Winter,” is a manifestation of his willful blindness. The Arab Spring has had horrendous and wide-ranging aftereffects whose consequences have not yet been fully realized in Libya, Algeria, Egypt, Tunisia, Morocco, Yemen, Syria, Bahrain, Kuwait, Jordan, and Mali. Obama has claimed credit  for the Arab Spring, and the Arab Spring has displaced the governments of former U.S. allies and opened the way for anti-U.S. Islamist forces, including the Muslim Brotherhood, al-Qaeda, and various Salafist jihadist organizations, to take power across the Islamic world.

Furthermore, as a result of Obama’s pretence  that the Arab Spring had calmed the violence in Libya, the State Department denied increased security forces requested by the U.S. Ambassador, Chris Stevens.  In the same time frame Obama went before the United Nations to knowingly lie  and blame the four American deaths on a U.S. resident exercising his constitutional 1st Amendment right  to produce an Internet video critical of Islam. According to Obama’s lie, this obscure video provoked a spontaneous Muslim mob assault on U.S. facilities and American government officials, while obscuring the truth that the Benghazi attack was a planned Islamic jihadist operation.

Since the U.S. Constitution, Section 2, Clause 1  charges the president with the responsibility of military Commander-in-Chief, Obama’s deliberate misrepresentation the Islamic threat to America is grave dereliction of the first and foremost presidential duty to defend the Constitution and the American people against all enemies, foreign and domestic.

In keeping with Obama’s suspicious denial of reality concerning the increasing and menacing danger of Islam, the president has consistently opposed taking a hard line imposing punishing sanctions against the Iranians mullahs to deter their pursuit of nuclear weapons. Furthermore, Obama has actively  attempted to dissuade Israel  from taking effective measures to defend their nation against Iranian nukes.  Obama’s failure to take a strong stand against Iranian acquisition of nuclear weapons is fostering a disaster in the offing that will be directly traceable to Obama’s malfeasance.   The president’s disregard of the potential threat of Iranian nukes appears to spring from underestimating the damage that the Iranians could inflict directly on the U.S. homeland.

It has long been assumed that the Iranians could not miniaturize and weaponize a nuclear warhead that would be small enough to fit on an ICBM that could reach the continental U.S., that would be hardened enough to survive reentry into earth’s atmosphere, and that still would be able to pack enough destructive power to actually produce meaningful damage that would justify the tremendous expense of creating the weapon. What this non-innovative U.S. thinking presumed was that the range limit to any Iranian missile attack would end at northern Europe.  But this unimaginative intelligence threat estimate of Iranian capability did not factor in the potential of a nuclear Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP) weapon delivered by a Fractional Orbital Bombardment System (FOBS), which would be modeled on the Soviet-developed FOBS system of the 1960s.

IIn addition to Iran, North Korea now also successfully launched a large enough satellite into space to carry an EMP nuclear payload into a FOBS orbit profile.  A . . .  EMP warhead is a nuclear weapon specially designed to produce an enormous burst of gamma rays that generates an extraordinarily powerful electromagnetic pulse, capable of destroying even the best protected electronics, thereby paralyzing military forces and blacking out power grids and collapsing critical infrastructures everywhere–across an entire nation the size of the United States.

It is an established fact that Iran and North Korea have been actively collaborating in nuclear and missile technology development for many years. Therefore, it can be assumed that when one attains an EMP-FOBS capability, it will be a shared capability.

In the same vein of downplaying the Islamic threat, Obama has selected two individuals to assume the critical portfolios of Secretary of Defense and Director of the CIA who are undeniable Islamophiles. In fact, the new SECDEF, Chuck Hagel, who is characterized as “dim-witted”  is a favored speaker on the Arab-Muslim lecture circuit because of his open support  of Hezbollah and Hamas, two of the world’s most deadly jihadist terror organizations! While the DCIA nominee, John Brennan, has actually asserted that “jihad is a holy struggle”  in the Islamic religion, in spite of the fact that Islamic law, the Sharia, specifically states that “Jihad means to war against non-Muslims”!

Moreover, an FBI veteran has stated that Brennan secretly became a Muslim  when he was stationed in Saudi Arabia with the CIA as a result of being recruited to convert to Islam by Saudi intelligence operatives.   While this charge is yet to be verified, it is definitely a cause for concern because of the dangerous potential consequences for U.S. security if true. In summary, Obama, a bona-fide  jihad denier, wants to put two other bona-fide  jihad deniers in charge of leading our defense effort to protect America from jihadist terrorism and internal Islamic subversion of the U.S. Government!

An impressive group of American generals, admirals, diplomats, and former DOD and CIA officials have sent a  letter to Obama stating that

“In our professional judgment, born of decades of experience with national security policy and practice, America’s “Triad” of nuclear-armed land-based and submarine-launched missiles and bomber-delivered nuclear weapons has promoted strategic stability and discouraged proliferation.  Steps that raise uncertainty about the viability, reliability and effectiveness of our deterrent will have the opposite effect.      According to published reports, you are considering further, draconian and perhaps unilateral cuts in the numbers of nuclear weapons in our arsenal.  We respectfully recommend that this plan be abandoned in favor of the fulfillment of commitments you made at the time of the New START Treaty to: modernize all three legs of the Triad; ensure the safety and deterrent effectiveness of the weapons with which they are equipped; and restore the critical industrial base that supports these forces.      Doing otherwise will put our country, its allies and our peoples at ever- greater risk in a world that is, far from nuclear-free . . . . .”

When Obama’s denial of the existential danger posed by Islam, which has been incorporated into his national security policy (for example, calling the Ft Hood jihadist massacre “work place violence”), refusal to confront the Iranian and North Korean EMP-FOBS threats along with his failure to inform the American public about them, desire to put jihad deniers in charge of countering the Islamic jihadist war against us, unnecessary retreat from Iraq after America’s expenditure of enormous amounts of blood and treasure there, squandering of American lives in Afghanistan for no apparent purpose, stated intention to foolishly disarm the U.S. by cutting the number of our nuclear weapons in pursuit of the delusional goal of eventually having zero nuclear weapons  in the U.S. arsenal, are all added together, the only conclusion is that Obama is an unmitigated failure in his conduct of U.S. national security.

Considering the appalling results of Obama’s national security, foreign, and economics policies all together begs the question, if Obama were attempting to undermine the U.S., what would he do differently?
