In Case You've Wondered

My blog is where my wandering thoughts are interspersed with stuff I made up. So, if while reading you find yourself confused about the context, don't feel alone. I get confused, too.

If you're here for the stories, I started another blog:

One other thing: sometimes I write words you refuse to use in front of children, or polite company, unless you have a flat tire, or hit your thumb with a hammer.

I don't use them to offend; I use them to embellish.

Kept Up To Date

From an interview with Dan Pfeiffer, an Obama Aide, with Chris Wallace:

"...Asked about whether the president entered the Situation Room, Pfeiffer says, "I don't remember what room the president was in on that night, and that's a largely irrelevant fact."

Maybe in his mind, but when it comes to a coordinated attack against representative of the United States, it's not irrelevant; it's a demand the President is completely apprised and taking the necessary actions.

He continued:

"... the president was in the white house that day, kept up to date by his national security team, spoke to the joint chiefs of staff earlier, secretary of state, and as events unfolded he was kept up to date..."

Oh really? He was kept up to date? He was in the White House? So, if the man in charge was on top of things, is it safe to assume the responsibility of the outcome is completely that of the President?

I don't know about you, but if this is true, the only conclusion is the President either wasn't paying attention, or the lives of 4 U.S. citizens ended with absolutely no effort to save them. Either is unconscionable and illustrates how little concern this administration has for the safety of U.S. citizens. If they'll let those that are our ambassadors to foreign lands be butchered by terrorists, it's safe to assume they have less concern for the ordinary citizen. 

Obama can't skate on this one. Either his aide is lying or he just implicated the President in one of the worst atrocities ever performed by the United States government.
