Yet again, our President is taking control over something he should not. We now live in the wonderful “Age of King Barakus Obmanaus”.
The Obama administration on Tuesday had the president’s National Security Council take control of congressional briefings on the Fort Hood killings and asked Democratic leaders to delay a probe, as top Republicans said intelligence shortcomings blamed for failing to prevent the 9/11 attacks are re-emerging.
Rep. Silvestre Reyes, chairman of the Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, said that the NSC had taken over the briefings “due to the high visibility of the issues surrounding the tragic event at Fort Hood,” and that Democratic leaders agreed to postpone any congressional action on the shootings.
“This is a somewhat complicated case,” the Texas Democrat said of the Nov. 6 rampage, attributed to Army Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, that left 13 dead and 29 wounded on the country’s largest Army post
I do agree with them waiting. But for how long? The facts are pretty straight forward. He was a Terrorist. How he was allowed to be a Terrorist in our armed forces is the real question. So get on with it, government, find out already. But it seems that the heath care/nightmare bill is more important to this government than doing their actual constitutional duties of protecting “we the people”. Yea, got it. And bye the bye, this “political correctness” has been eroding our Republic for a very long time. And, who, and what is the Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence?
