Bipartisan Report: Obama Fails on BioTerror, Least Prepared for Attacks

By Debbie Schlussel

As longtime readers know, I was a frequent critic of the Bush administration’s lax attitudes when it came to protecting us and our borders.  Whether it was the fact that the Bushies never began inspecting most cargo containers entering the U.S. or that they wasted valuable time, instead, pandering to and promoting extremist Muslims.  And, yes, even when it came to the bioterror threat, something I frequently mentioned during the Bush Administration.  That includes the fact that the Bushies were lax on who got HazMat hauling certificates and finally raided (far too late) and prosecuted truck driving schools where a huge percentage of the students were Mid-Eastern illegal aliens who cheated on exams.

Now, however, we learn from a bipartisan report that the Obama Administration is in even worse shape.  It’s alarming, especially since we know that bioterror attacks have long been in Al-Qaeda’s plans and attempts (and are detailed in its documents and manuals).

The Obama administration is . . . failing to address the more urgent and immediate threat of biological terrorism, a bipartisan commission created by Congress is reporting today.

The report  . . . cites failures on biosecurity policy by the White House, which the Commission on the Prevention of Weapons of Mass Destruction says has left the country vulnerable. The commission, created last year to address concerns raised by post-9/11 investigations, warns that anthrax spores released by a crop-duster could “kill more Americans than died in World War II” and the economic impact could exceed $1.8 trillion in cleanup and other costs.

The government’s efforts “have not kept pace with the increasing capabilities and agility of those who would do harm to the United States,” the report says. “The consequences of ignoring these warnings could be dire.” Says commission Chairman Bob Graham, a Democratic former senator from Florida: “The clock is ticking.” . . .

Among the commission’s criticisms:

President Obama’s National Security Council has no senior political appointees with a biodefense background. “That was not the case in the Clinton and Bush administrations,” the report says. . . .

Commission Vice Chairman Jim Talent, a Republican former senator from Missouri, says: “The fact is, it is only getting easier and cheaper to develop and use biological weapons. … It is essential that the U.S. government move more aggressively.”

Feel safe?  Only if you’re a complete moron.  And the same went for the last 8 years.

whelp, if you believe that a black-supremecist/islamist president has an agenda, and based on those values, then it is not a big stretch of imagination that he would implement policies to steer our country toward that racial-ideological outcome, right?

by allowing our country to be infiltrated by jihadists, and creating an environment where they could unleash an attack of mass destruction, wouldn’t it be ideal for obama to “let” such a disaster occur as long as it wiped out mostly non-blacks and/or unbelievers here in the states? maybe a couple of horrific events would tip our country’s “diversity” to permit a certain racial-ideological majority to instantly become dominant? how soon after such a disaster would our own security services and media begin to blame white-conservative “extremists”?

i believe that all of our country’s vulnerabilities are deliberate; not just the garden-variety government incompetence which most US citizens believe our security lapses to be…

Worst case scenario? Nothing will be done until after thousands of people are dead. It took 9/11 for the US government to focus on protecting the homeland. One wonders what it will take to get it to become serious about protecting the country from potential bioterror threats.

We should all pray we never have to find out.

Since Obama is such a vile sociopath (not to mention a rigid, hardcore ideologue), and since so many in his inner circle are dedicated Maoists and/or Marxists, something tells me none of them would lose a wink of sleep if one or more American cities were wiped out in a bioterror attack and anywhere from thousands to millions of Americans annihilated in the accompanying destruction.

I dunno, ConcernedPatriot. Big cities are the prime targets, and all those blacks vote 95% for Obama.

If one looks at where the thwarted terror attacks were supposed to be, one finds some irony that the libtards that voted for this fraud(B.O.) will be the most targeted. I actually AM the type to say I toldya so. I’ve been saying it a lot lately to people as they look away and shake their head.

Remember KING HUSSEIN really doesn’t want to protect our country. He is buying time for the Muslims to get nukes. Even Newsweek basically celebrates Iran getting the bomb with it cover, “After Iran Gets The Bomb It Wont Be The End Of The World…” by none other than CNN’s Muslim Fareed Zakaria.

And for more anti-security measures, it it CNN’s Rick Sanchez demanding we don’t arrest illegal aliens because ICE doesn’t want sweeps by Patriot and Hero Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio. However, he won’t back down.

JOE V. OBAMA, coming soon to a theater near you. I suppose this will lead to KING HUSSEIN charging Arapaio with civil rights violation of illegal aliens. All a prelude to amnesty next year. In the meantime, Joe crushes Rick Sanchez in his own house. Textbook work on how to handle a liberal. To Rick Sanchez, is that all you got?
