Politics of Fear Continue Under Obama
During his campaign to become President, Barack Obama promised that he would end the politics of fear if he were elected. Now, nearly a year after he was inaugurated, what are we seeing?
A) An incompetent Al Quaeda recruit fails to blow himself up on an airplane, causing only burns to himself. As a result, airport security is increased around the world, with the Department of Homeland Security purposefully establishing inconsistent security procedures, in order to cause the maximum amount of confusion.
B) Eight Americans are actually killed by a suicide bomber in Afghanistan, and the Obama Administration doesn’t change policy at all, but continues with its plans to send tens of thousands of more Americans into harm’s way in Afghanistan.
