Senate Intelligence Committee Chair Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) Says President Obama ‘Too Cautious’ on ISIS

 

Barack Obama, the Ditherer in Chief …

This Sunday on Meet the Press, Senate Intelligence Committee Chair Dianne Feinstein called Barack Obama a ditherer in dealing with ISIS.  Host Andra Mitchell asked, “The fact is, they have been on the march now for months, if not years.  So why does the president still say we don’t have a strategy yet?  The Democrat Senator from California Feinstein’s exact response was, “I think I’ve learned one thing about this president, and that is he’s very cautious.  Maybe in this instance, too cautious.” In other words, a ditherer.

Meet the Press Transcript, Aug 31, 2014:

ANDREA MITCHELL: The fact is, they have been on the march now for months, if not years.  So why does the president still say we don’t have a strategy yet?  Doesn’t that project weakness from the White House?

DIANNE FEINSTEIN: Well, I mean, I know what you want me to say.  But I’m not going to say it in that sense.  I think I’ve learned one thing about this president, and that is he’s very cautious.  Maybe in this instance, too cautious.  I do know that the military, I know that the State Department, I know that others have been putting plans together.

And so hopefully, those plans will coalesce into a strategy that can encourage that coalition from Arab nations, Jordan’s at jeopardy, Lebanon’s at jeopardy, the UAA and other countries are in jeopardy.  So there is good reason for people to come together now and begin to approach this as a very real threat, that it in fact is.

ANDREA MITCHELL: The president back in January told The New Yorker magazine, David Remnick, that ISIS is the JV team.  That was clearly wrong.

DIANNE FEINSTEIN: Well, I think it’s wrong too.  I think it’s a major varsity team.  And if you want to use those kinds of monikers.  But I see nothing that compares with its viciousness.  I’ve been on the intelligence committee now since before 9/11, and I’ve watched this evolution of non-state actors into world terror very carefully and closely.

And this is really the first group that has the wherewithal in terms of financing, the fighting machine in terms of a structure– a heavy equipment, heave explosives, the ability to move quickly, I mean, they crossed the border into Iraq before we even knew it happened.  So this is a group of people who are extraordinarily dangerous.  And they’ll kill with abandon

      Could it be that the only puppeteers pulling Obama strings now are Islamic influences that have infiltrated the US Administration … Islamic influences who Michelle Bachmann desperately attempted to expose but was despicably mocked by both Democrat and RINO representatives. In other words … the Marxist puppeteers have clued into the Islamic global Caliphate ideology that Obama has always deceptively embraced and are now backing off or … have had their strings cut.

      PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA – JANUARY 27, 2014

      I pointed out that the flag of Al Qaeda is now flying in Falluja, in Iraq, and among various rebel factions in Syria; Al Qaeda has asserted a presence in parts of Africa, too.

      “The analogy we use around here sometimes, and I think is accurate, is if a jayvee team puts on Lakers uniforms that doesn’t make them Kobe Bryant”, Obama said.

      DEFENSE SECRETARY CHUCK HAGEL – AUGUST 22, 2014

      “ISIL is as sophisticated and well-funded as any group that we have seen. They’re beyond just a terrorist group. They marry ideology, a sophistication of strategic and tactical military prowess. They are tremendously well-funded. Oh, this is beyond anything that we’ve seen. So we must prepare for everything.”

      Cautious and ditherer have different meanings….so which is it Diane….cautious is definitely not the word….using ditherer would be an excuse…. but incompetence would clearly state it….also, aiding and abetting the enemy.

      He wasn’t cautious when he released 5 of the most dangerous terrorists into the world. It was great pleasure for him to pull that off.

      He never should of made that speech. It made us look weak, unprepared and downright stupid. His tan suit reflected as neutral. He wouldn’t want to oppose his muslim brothers.

    4. King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia Warned the West Will be the Next Target of ISIS Jihadists Unless there is “Rapid” Action | Scared Monkeys on August 31st, 2014 6:37 pm

      [...] King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia warns the West of ISIS stating, “If we ignore them, I am sure they will reach Europe in a month and America in another month.” King Abdullah warned that ISIS jihadists must be dealt with quickly, saying a lack of action would be “unacceptable” in the face of the terrorist phenomenon. Of course I would ask two question. One, what has King Abdullah and Saudi Arabia done to quell ISIS or terrorists and two, take rapid action, doesn’t King Abdullah realize that in Obama, he is talking to a ditherer? [...]

      King Abdullah is getting worried that ISIS may make a move on him and take him out.

      If he is depending on President Zero to attack his muslim brothers to stop the proposed caliphate, he may have to wait until someone in control tells Zero what to do. Since Zero bowed to the king, maybe this is a message for Zero to get off the fence and get moving.

      Headlines should read obama steps aside, tough strategy in place dealing with ISIS.

      [...] And Barack Hussein Obama is no where to be found. I guess he is too busy dithering and being too cautious trying to figure out what his strategy is.   Instead the feckless and clueless Obama would have you [...]
