Obama received detailed ISIS intel for a year – guess he was happy with the progress

I’m truly not in the mood for either the progressive socialist Obama cheerleaders or the cultural jihad apologists. If y’all keep it up, you’ll find yourselves being classified with the enemy.

Now we learn just how much President Obama cares about the security of the United States — and the ramifications thereof. As reported first by Fox News — again first, all the mainstream media follows — “President Obama was given detailed and specific intelligence about the rise of the Islamic State as part of his daily briefing for at least a year before the group seized large swaths of territory over the summer, a former Pentagon official told Fox News. The official — who asked not to be identified because the President’s Daily Brief is considered the most authoritative, classified intelligence community product analyzing sensitive international events for the president — said the data was strong and “granular” in detail.” For you non-military types, the word “granular” in our lexicon means it’s fine in detail and well crystallized.

Perhaps if Obama had been being “briefed” or even taken the time to read the PDB (Presidential Daily Brief) he may not have referred to ISIS as the “JV Team.” Or maybe Valerie Jarrett was reading the briefs and told him there was nothing important contained in them. Regardless, this represents a monumental dereliction of duty by Obama — sorry, right now, just can’t refer to him in any other manner.

Fox reports that, “Obama, unlike his predecessors who traditionally had the document briefed to them, is known to personally read the daily brief. The former Pentagon official, who has knowledge of the process, said Obama generally was not known to come back to the intelligence community with further requests for information based on the daily report.”

You can bet the person who has divulged this information is truly at risk from this Chicago-style thug administration. Fox says, “after suggestions that the administration may have been blindsided by the rise of ISIS, and that poor intelligence was to blame, the former Pentagon official said some of the intelligence was so good in the region, that when the president drew a red line on chemical weapons use in Syria in 2012, the information was “exquisite.” The source said “[we] were ready to fire, on a moment’s notice, on a couple hundred targets,” but no order was given. In some cases, targets were tracked for a “long period of time” but then slipped away.”

Maybe Obama just didn’t want to violate his foreign policy guiding principle, “don’t do stupid [email protected]” Well, not taking your daily intel briefs is certainly stupid.

And as we had reported here, the former Pentagon official, separately, also claimed there was a delay regarding the question of whether to act to save American journalist James Foley from Islamic State militants. The Sunday Times of London first reported that the delay was 30 days. The former Pentagon official described a White House that was hesitant and continually asking for “the intelligence to build up more.”

In contrast, Obama certainly won’t miss a round of golf, even after delivering a lackluster prepared statement while on vacay on the beheading of American James Wright Foley– which leads to another heinous barbaric act by ISIS.

However, as reported by the Washington Times at of my writing, “The White House said it cannot yet authenticate a video released by the Islamic State and purporting to show the beheading of American journalist Steven Sotloff, who has been held in captivity by the terrorist group. If authenticated, the video would mark the second time in less than a month that the Islamist organization beheaded an American journalist and disseminated video of the death. In the video released Tuesday — titled “A Second Message to America” and threatening that more Americans and Britons will be killed — the man said to be Mr. Sotloff blames President Obama and U.S. intervention in the Middle East for his death, though it’s likely he was coerced into doing so.”

The difference this time is that the ISIS fighter in the video states, “I am back, Obama. I am back because of your arrogant foreign policy toward the Islamic State,” the fighter says. “Our knife will continue to strike the neck of your people.”

In addition, a British man identified as David Haines is then shown kneeling on the ground in an orange jumpsuit. The Islamic State fighter then says all countries that join America’s coalition will see their nationals murdered.

We must immediately end this practice of freelance journalists who are providing this enemy an opportunity to display their savagery — and remember they do have an American female hostage. I concur with UK Prime Miniser David Cameron in that those who have departed to join with ISIS must have their citizenship terminated and their passports taken. They are the enemy and shall be treated as such. Even the Australian Prime Minister has taken strong steps in this regard – as my friend Nick Adams writes here.

Meanwhile, back on our shores, we just sit and wait for another spineless press conference from Obama who I suppose will once again tell us — and ISIS — what he isn’t going to do. What America needs to do is rid itself of this cowardly pestilence called the Obama administration.

And yes, I have offered a plan on this website on several occasions, and it entails the destruction of Islamo-fascism, totalitarianism, and jihadism. But that’s not apparently what Obama wants.

I seem to remember hearing during the first four years of Obama that he pretty much skipped his security briefings. If they just give him a report every morning, who knows if he ever reads it? If this was a Republican prez who was on the golf course when the world is on fire, he’d be crucified in the press and impeached by Congress. Of course, a Republican wouldn’t behave this way. With ISIS knocking on the door at our Southern border, don’t you wish we could call President Romney – or at least call up President Bush from the… Read more »

a) he knew about them b) he wanted to bomb Assad, their blood enemy. Why after thinking that Iraq was ‘dumb’ did he want to bomb Assad? Why did he want to bomb Assad after Libya went crazy as a result of taking out Quadiffi?
Do the math.

It has been documented he rarely attends his own briefing. Why would he want to just read it himself? Because then there is no one to question

Victoria Jones

He rarely shows up for his daily briefings and wants to read them alone so there is no one there to see how happy he is. He is a Muslim jihad terrorist, but who in the administration is trying to get him out and stripped of power? We will see his true colors in just days on the anniversary of 9/11. God Bless America and Her citizens.

Obama’s war in Iraq is a continuation of previous policy.
It’s the PNAC plan in full effect.
Perpetual warfare for profit.

I cannot believe Mr. West that as a former soldier and Oath Taker, that you would advocate creating a monster bureaucracy that Mr. Cameron also proposes. Would this be similar tot he terrorist watch list that it is super secret and the person does not get his day in court?
That is what the terrorists want. They want us to forfiet our rights to “feel” safe. That is the only way they can defeat us. With thinking like that you are truly no better than Obama.

Could it be any more clear that BHO is a cheerleader for jihadis? Not giving a tinker’s dam about ISIS and allowing our southern border to be a conduit for terrorists doesn’t add up well for a guy who was raised a Muslim.

President Gowdy would have already had the southern border under military control. Plus… Sgt. Tahmooressi would have been released in about 5 minutes after his capture.

How come no one is talking about the terror training camps here in America? I have read over & over on the internet there are 35 plus. Also Obama has around 9 Muslims in his admin, infiltratednation,com has a picture of 6 of them and I know Valerie Jarrett was born in Iran is & John Brennen head of the CIA is a convert to Islam. One of them is in the DHS and he helped re-write the military manuals, deleted any reference to Islamic jihad.

The breaking news is that U.S. Suspected Israeli Involvement in 1960s Missing Uranium – Officials Believed Ally Used Materials Lifted From Pennsylvania Toward a Weapons Program – Declassified documents from the 1970s provide new evidence that federal officials believed bomb-grade uranium that disappeared from a Pennsylvania nuclear facility in the 1960s was likely taken for use in a clandestine Israeli atomic-weapons program.

There is no mystery here! Please look up the fact that Obama has members of the Muslim Brotherhood in Cabinet positions and other positions in OUR White House! .

He has also filled our military with them and all parts of government. The FEMA Camps, grave sites and caskets are ready for all of us. The borders are wide open and the brotherhood and diseases are all here and just waiting for the signal. Obama is out of the country and will not speak about the horrible things going on. He has done his job and now is waiting for the big bang when either we worship them or get beheaded. It is a little late for people to wake up now.

While I agree with most of the article, I wonder if Mr West does not care about his own oath? He took it willingly, there was no draft that put him in the JROTC or the ROTC when he finished high school.
Perhaps he has forgotten that article 88 of the UCMJ still applies to him despite being retired.
He could always give up the retirement benefits he paid $5,000 to keep when he was cashiered, then it wouldn’t be an issue.
Don’t believe me? Ask the G.W. Bush administration Secretary of Defense, Donald Rumsfeld.. ..

Oldejack… Do not think for a second, Article 88 under UCMJ, is an avenue of approach that could be used by obama, holder, or even senior military leadership. For those who do not know what Article 88 in the UCMJ is, it is a contemptuous act against the POTUS. Funny!! Colonel West has more honor and integrity than any you can imagine, as do I. If we had a POTUS CIC, then maybe, Article 88, in the twilight zone. We, as American Soldiers, took an oath to defend against All Enemies, both Foreign and Domestic.. Including, obama, holder, kerry, biden… Read more »

Mack, first off I agree with you. Second, yes I can imagine how much integrity Mr West has (or you since you have apparently tied the two together), the question raised has to do with personal attacks against POTUS not statements against actions or behavior of the POTUS. As I pointed out to one troll in a previous conversation, at least Mr. West has the self pride to take responsibility for his own actions and his own men EVEN THOUGH it led to his early retirement. (Besides, most of our military forces fall under article 134 not article 88 and… Read more »

It is truly saddening to see what is happening to the United States. This country is being uprooted before our very eyes but Americans are too blinded by false TRUST to even realize it. Our Nation is being brought to its KNEES with each passing day, yet Somehow the vast majority of people are completely and utterly blinded to it. but what is even more baffling is the fact that when you try to WARN America of the coming danger — they right you off as a conspiracy theorist, Racist, or domestic-terrorist.

“If y’all keep it up, you’ll find yourselves being classified with the enemy.”

West keeps an enemies list, like McCarthy, Nixon, Stalin … and you can get on it by simply disagreeing with his desire to deny Constitutional protections to a religion he fears.

Do you now see why mainstream Americans hate the radical right wing so much?

An enemies list … really!
