139 Terrorists Attacks Since 9-11 Compared to 41 in Obama's 2009

139 Muslim American Planned Attacks Since 9-11... ........BUT 41 in just ONE year 2009 under Obama.

Not only were there more planned attacks in 2009 but information sharing was flagged and given higher priority during the Bush Administration.

The American Spectator

When Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab was placed on the British government’s watch list in May 2009 and banned from entering the country, the U.S. embassy in London (and by extension the U.S. State Department), as well as U.S. intelligence agencies, were notified of this move as part of information-sharing agreements entered into by a number of Western governments after the September 11, 2001 attacks, says a U.S. State Department employee on the condition of anonymity because of concern that by speaking about the situation, their job could be endangered.

“We have agreements with a number of different countries that work with us cooperatively on intelligence matters,” says the State Department employee. “A number of the treaties work through our justice departments or foreign offices or intelligence and interior or homeland security agencies. Several departments here in Washington got the information from London and it didn’t trigger anything within our own system.

This employee says that despite statements from the Obama Administration, such information was flagged and given higher priority during the Bush Administration, but that since the changeover “we are encouraged to not create the appearance that we are profiling or targeting Muslims. I think career employees were uncomfortable with the Bush procedures and policies and were relieved to not have to live under them any longer.”

The Obama Administration is attempting to shift blame for Abdulmutallab, pointing reporters to information that the Nigerian was given a visa by the U.S. embassy in London to travel to the U.S. in 2008, around the same time that he graduated from University College London, a well-respected university. But the State Department source says at that time Abdulmutallab was not on a watch list and traveled to Houston on that visa without incident. A year later, in May 2009, his application for a student visa to return to Britain was rejected because the college Abdulmutallab claimed he would attend was “bogus,” and that red flag was shared with U.S. State Department, Homeland Security Department, U.S. Justice Department, and almost certainly U.S. intelligence agencies.

Wild Thing's comment......

So much for the people that voted for Obama thinking he would keep us safe or there would be less threats.

Yeah Romo finally put it together long enough to pull out a win. Of course it was Philidelphia, the city of Hope and Change, who they had to pull it together against. McNab usually crumbles in the playoffs and was true to form, again.

Son of Bum (Bum Phillip's kid) usually does well in the first round. Next week should be telling. Because they will run into the NFL's version of the "Tide". I am hoping they have to go to Minnesota,...Ahhh damn, that's indoors...double damn.

The Jets came out roaring and took it again to the Bengals. That was a good game. If Patriots win today the Jets go to Indy, that will be a different game than yesterday. If the Ravens win its San Diego either way probably a loss. Two tough game either way...

obama thinks that his friendlyness toward muslims will prevent any more attacks on America. He probably also figures that if there are any more attacks he can blame them on someone else "below his pay grade" and toss them under his bus.

Interesting that so many homegrown muslims have planned attacks. Not surprising that it is happening, but interesting that it is reported.

Mark, LOL that is easy to do.

Tom, yes I thought that was interesting too.
Many of the ones during Bush were not reported.
I have to wonder if the reason Obama allows them
to be reported to is make it appear he is taking
care of things without doing squat to make us safe.
