Blogger Takes Obama Comment on Iran to Task

OK take Obama to task for his comments, but naivety? Spare us.

Seems Bill Clinton could be said to have displayed that when he permitted those sales of computer chips to China.

Seems George W. Bush displayed this when he didn't act on a pre-September 11, 2001 report. Meanwhile, 3,000 plus individuals were killed in World Trade Center attacks while President George W. Bush sat listening to a class of elementary students reading even though he'd been interrupted and told "a second plane hit the WTC" and "America is under attack."

APRIL 10--Under pressure from the September 11 commission, the White House today declassified and released an intelligence digest given to President George W. Bush weeks before the 2001 terrorist attacks. The confidential President's Daily Brief (PDB) for August 6, 2001 contained a two-page section entitled "Bin Ladin Determined to Strike in US," and refers to possible hijacking attempts by Osama bin Laden disciples and the existence of about 70 FBI investigations into alleged al-Qaeda cells operating within the United States. The August 6 PDB, an excerpt from which you'll find below, was presented to Bush while he vacationed at his ranch in Crawford, Texas...

See our

"This is not a conspiracy theory."

Seems George H.W. Bush could be said to display naivety to believe Saddam Hussein would not invade Kuwait "before one more round of negotiations."

Ah say what, negotiations with a bad guy?

So use care when criticizing Obama and neglecting everybody but.

How about John McCain, the Republican's presumed presidential nominee.

Cause just around our corner, McCain's misstatements

A McCain Gaffe in Jordan
By Cameron W. Barr and Michael D. Shear
AMMAN, Jordan -- Sen. John McCain, traveling in the Middle East to promote his foreign policy expertise, misidentified in remarks Tuesday which broad category of Iraqi extremists are allegedly receiving support from Iran.

He said several times that Iran, a predominately Shiite country, was supplying the mostly Sunni militant group, al-Qaeda. In fact, officials have said they believe Iran is helping Shiite extremists in Iraq.

Speaking to reporters in Amman, the Jordanian capital, McCain said he and two Senate colleagues traveling with him continue to be concerned about Iranian operatives "taking al-Qaeda into Iran, training them and sending them back."

Pressed to elaborate, McCain said...

and his promises to capture bin Laden during his first term in office.

McCain promises to ‘get’ bin Laden
Posted: 06:40 AM ET
DES MOINES, Iowa (CNN) – Republican presidential candidate Sen. John McCain, R-Arizona, vowed Wednesday that if he were president he would “get” Osama bin Laden.

“As president of the United States I will get him,” McCain said. “I’ll bring bin Laden to justice, I promise you.”

The comments came during an event at an AmVets Hall in Iowa, a stop on the senator’s “No Surrender” tour across the early voting states of Iowa, New Hampshire, and South Carolina.

Talk about naive.

George W. Bush promised that a couple of days after September 11, 2001

Obama's Carter-Like Naivety POSTED May 21, 5:37 PM
On Sunday, Obama showed his Carter-like naivety when he said Iran poses no serious threat to us and suggested we might have common interests with the rouge state that is developing a nuclear weapon to wipe Israel off the map.

Obama got it very wrong.
