George Pataki: Obama is Jeopardizing U.S. Security


Eight years after the worst-ever terrorist attack on American soil, the man who was Governor of New York at the time, George Pataki fears that President Obama has weakened U.S. security.

In an exclusive interview with Newsmax.TV, Pataki says:

“There is no question in my mind he is jeopardizing our security. You cannot turn terrorists loose, turn them back to where they came from and not expect them to engage in that activity again. We’ve already seen the example of a number of Guantanamo detainees who were released and returned to the battlefield, fighting our troops, fighting others who are trying to uphold the rule of law and defend freedom. So that clearly places us in jeopardy”

The three-term Republican governor also warns the investigation and possible prosecution of CIA terrorist interrogators by Obama’s attorney general will undermine America’s national security.

“When CIA officials, CIA agents and others who play a critical role in trying to gather the intelligence we need to prevent further attacks have to look over the shoulder about investigations and possible criminal charges, it certainly hampers our ability to get the necessary intelligence to protect ourselves,” he says.

Pataki suggests Obama is repeating the mistakes of the previous Democratic administration.

“Using the FBI and by derivation our criminal justice court system to look into this, this is exactly what happened in 1993,” he says.
“We had the towers bombed by an Islamic terrorist and rather than seeing it as an act of war by those who would attack us any chance they would get, we treated it as a criminal case, we had a trial, the trial went forward, the sheik was convicted, but it sent all the wrong messages to those who would attack us again.”
In the 90’s, the Janet Reno Justice Department reportedly issued a memo known as the “wall of silence” that prohibited the sharing of information between law enforcement agencies. Pataki says that was a contributing factor to 9/11.
“The fact that the FBI and the CIA couldn’t share information I think in retrospect clearly was one of the major problems because the terrorists, the hijackers were here in the U.S. and the FBI had some information, the CIA had different information, but they could not coordinate. And that was a self-imposed Clinton administration restriction that had tragic consequences. I fear that too many of the actions of this Obama administration have the potential, let’s hope it never happens, but have the potential to open us up to further attacks.”

By contrast, he notes that since the 9/11 attacks the Bush administration prevented any more terror attacks on the U.S. homeland.

“So take a look at the past eight years,” Pataki says, “For all the uncertainty in the world, we were safe, we were not attacked again. I fear that the Obama administration’s policies are jeopardizing our security going forward.”

Wild Thing's comment.......


Pataki was there, he saw what terrorists are willing to do.

Obama won't listen he could care less about our country, security, our citizens, our troops, or anything else about America except his agenda to destroy.....typical Muslim.

Yes Obama is George, so have you!!!
Why hasn't Pataki been a stronger leader before now? Like the movie character in the 1957 movie;The Bridge on the River Kwai, where Colonel Nicholson who has been fraternizing with the enemy asks "What have I done?". He a bit late in the game to admit that his party has been a failure at national security through their backing of the Democrats and every UN agenda on the platter. Pataki ranks #6 on the list Top 10 RINOs, in my book you are toast!!!

President: "I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States."

Congress: "I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support the Constitution of the United States."

Simple yes, but you have all failed!!!
