Another Obama-CIA Rift as POTUS Deflects Blame From Self, DNI and Appointees

"Guess That Spinmeister .Who's is it, Axelrod,Emmanuel or Jarrett ?"

While the painstaking process of unearthing the “systematic failures” of intelligence on the “underwear bomber” continues, Obama again performs on script. Just as he’s done with virtually every past crises – and always while armed with only the bare essentials of information – the now infamous POTUS finger of blame moves away from anyone remotely connected with Obama, his decisions or performance of his appointees, and falls once again on his favorite scapegoat, the CIA.

And the CIA spy chiefs are none to happy about the accusations. It seemed especially harsh when, in an apparent moment of political expedience, Obama was hailing the seven CIA agents slain by a suicide bomber at a US base in the eastern province of Khost 24 hours later.

One day the President is pointing the finger and blaming the intelligence services, saying there is a systemic failure,’ said one agency official. ‘Now we are heroes. The fact is that we are doing everything humanly possible to stay on top of the security situation. The deaths of our operatives shows just how involved we are on the ground.’

But CIA bosses claim they were unfairly blamed at a time the covert government agency has been stretched further than ever before in Afghanistan and Pakistan.They point to the murder of seven operatives at a remote mountain base in Afghanistan’s Khost Province as an example of how agents are putting their lives on the line at the vanguard of America’s far-flung wars.Some CIA officials are angry at being criticised by the White House after Abdulmutallab, 23, was allowed to slip through the security net and board a US-bound flight in Amsterdam despite evidence he was a terror threat.


The president complained that a warning from the former London engineering student’s father and information about an al Qaeda bomb plot involving a Nigerian were not handled properly by the intelligence networks.

But CIA officials say the data was sent to the US National Counterterrorism Centre in Washington, which was set up after the 9/11 attacks as a clearing house where raw data should be analysed.

You know, I don't know if I've seen Obama accept responsibility for anything yet. For a man who campaigned on his health care plan, I don't even think he's put any input into it at all. I guess it's so when it aids in America's financial melt down, he can blame that on someone else.

He takes credit where he rightfully shouldn't He is a pathological liar who is aided and abetted by his lemmings and the Press. He is the worst president ever and that comes less than a year in office and with Carter as the benchmark of bad presidents. I fear we haven't seen the worst yet, too much time before we can get rid of him.

We also have to get the other libs out of office before we reach the point of no return. Great Britistan and Europistan in general should be enough to wake up our voters.

He can stay out of the debate and not have any input, but once it hits his desk and he signs it, he owns it. He can't blame anyone then.

The left likes to blame the CIA for mistakes and terrible deeds - I mean after all - the CIA spent the better part of the last decade working against leftist regimes and that's unforgivable in the dems eyes.

Blaming the CIA is a very, very bad idea for any administration, IMHO.
