9/11 Was Not Just A Ghost Story

My American readers are probably familiar with this story, but my Israeli ones may have missed it because of the busy week. President Obama and his staff were on Air Force One and in order to do a photo-op (!!!!!), they flew, accompanied by an F16, very close to buildings in New York City. This criminally stupid fly-by.. caused a lot of panic among New Yorkers, who still are traumatized by the events of 9/11.

It is apparent that President Obama, and his entire staff, are not only NOT traumatized by the events of 9/11, but they can’t even imagine others feeling this trauma.  How else can you explain this gross insensitivity?

For those in the White House, 9/11 is treated at best as a “sad memory”, and at worst as a political annoyance, which they wish to forget in order to force through their liberal agenda. How else can they denigrate the methods used by the CIA in order to get intelligence about terrorist cells? If you look at the methods used without the context – the very realy danger to the lives of Americans – than it is easy to be horrified. But if what happened on 9/11 is REAL, and not just a “ghost story” – than the methods used are more than justified.

I am very worried that the people in charge in America seem so complacent about their security, and the fact that this complacency is broadcasted to the world is downright frightening.

 I hope I am wrong, but I think it is only a matter of time until the terrorists attempt a suicide bombing in America. Signs of weakness invite aggression.

    Ultimately the buck stops with Obama,but I don’t believe that he authorized this. It was a stupid and asinine move on the part of the admin and whomever approved it.

    I agree with you West Bank Mama! I don’t have quite as much faith in Obama as Jack (above).

    I got through TSA’s security point in JFK just yesterday with two bottles of lotion in my backpack..ie. not in plastic bags. Now, they were just lotion, but no one seemed to notice them on the x-ray scanner.

    Actually Obama wasn’t on the plane, so it wasn’t Air Force One (it’s just called like that when the President is on board), and he didn’t plan that or something.

    From the article I read, he wasn’t on the plane, but the entire security issue was nuts. The NYC person who got the notice didn’t fully understand it and was told that it was “top secret” not to be passed on further.
    Whoever planned it should have been fired. I don’t know if that happened.

    Please forgive me; you’re tagged!
