The Bystander in Chief President Obama Hasn’t Called Russians, Chinese About Snowden … “I’m Not Going to Be Scrambling Jets to Get a 29 Year-Old Hacker” Edward Snowden
The Bystander in Chief Barack Obama … Talk About leading from Behind.
And now we have more proof that President Obama just does not get engaged in issues unless it has to do with “green energy”, a war on oil or coal, or attacking conservatives and the Tea Party. As reported at The Weekly Standard, President Obama hasn’t called the Chinese and Russians about NSA leaker Edward Snowden, the man wanted by the U.S. government for espionage. HUH? Obama said smugly, “I’m Not Going to Be Scrambling Jets to Get a 29-Year-Old Hacker.” REALLY? Just a hacker? Hasn’t it been reported that Snowden had taken US intelligence? Hasn’t Snowden’s actions of disclosing NSA surveillance secrets been touted as damaging and one of the worst cases ever? Now we hear from Obama, Snowden is just a hacker. Obama really has no credibility any more. Just curious, how damaging or severe was what Snowden did if it does not prompt a call from Obama?
How does some one go from super spy potentially telling China and Russia some of our greatest secrets saved on a thumb drive and public enemy number # charged with espionage, to just a common hacker? Maybe if it was a campaign stop or fund raiser Obama would have made a call.
“No, I’m Not Going to Be Scrambling Jets to Get a 29-Year-Old Hacker”
Isn’t this the same president that did not meet with his jobs council for 6 months during a recession? And the same president that no one knows where he was the night that the Benghazi consulate was attacked by terrorist and four Americans were murdered?
UPDATE I: But then Obama says according to CBS News, he is “concerned” Edward Snowden could leak more. How concerned could he really be, if he refuses to engage. Talk about a weak, weak president.
“I continue to be concerned about the other documents he may have,” Mr. Obama said at the joint news conference in Dakar with Senegalese President Macky Sall. “He has those documents. He’s released some of them but not all of them have been released.”
