Unaccountability as Political Strategy and Foreign Policy
It's called "passing" or "avoiding" the buck. This can come only from those who are so adept at skating or slacking and avoiding work, while pretending to actually be producing something, and are in fact avoiding being accountable for their actions.
I point this out during this, the week of the 60th anniversary of George Orwell's famed book, "1984."
Although Orwell did not coin the term "DOUBLE-SPEAK," if he had, it would probably be defined as: "... words deliberately constructed for political purposes: words, that is to say, which not only had in every case a political implication, but were intended to impose a desirable mental attitude upon the person using them." (wikipedia).
Terrorism in Obama-speak we now know as "man-caused disaster." Nappy (Janet Napolitano) says she wants to demonstrate that, "...we want to move away from the politics of fear toward a policy of being prepared for all risks that can occur..."
Sure you do.
Unfortunately, it is much more than that.
The logic of their doublespeak is that, if we don't allow the term to be used, then there is no more terrorism, and the administration cannot be held accountable for any attacks on the U.S. during Obama's watch. If it is a "crime," it is not a TERRORIST attack. So they relegate this to law enforcement instead of treating it as a military attack by TERRORISTS on the homeland.
Where Harry Truman declared that the "buck stops here," meaning that he was ultimately responsible for what happened, in Barry-land they have done away with the buck altogether.
If there is no terrorism, they cannot be blamed for being weak on Defense. This is an open invitation to any two-bit TERRORIST to come forward and launch an attack.
This in fact has already occurred. Do you see the administration clamoring to rectify this? No, they have essentially ignored the gravity of an attack on U.S. servicemen at a recruiting station in Arkansas that resulted in one fatality. The attack has been billed as one carried out by a Lone Wolf assasin, that he acted alone, and the "suspect," has actually been quoted as saying that the serviceman deserved to die BECAUSE he was an American Soldier.
That TERRORIST alone has indicted Obama, his entire administration, and their foreign policy is a betrayal of trust of the security of this country. It is obvious that the weakened Obama policy of appeasement has opened the door to more attacks on this country. For nearly eight years we had not one terrorist attack on the mainland. We are just over 100 days into the Obama regime, and a TERRORIST in the heartland feels safe enough to gun-down two of America's proud defenders, at a recruiting station, no less.
Even in Conservative blogs, talk radio, I have not seen enough outrage, nor enough action about this. This cannot stand, and must be acted upon, not only to bring the perpetrator of the attack to justice, but make those responsible for creating the climate for such an attack, ACCOUNTABLE.
Where is the NINE-ELEVEN "NEVER AGAIN" theme now? Where is "WE WILL NEVER FORGET."
We must pound this over and over and make it a homeland defense issue immediately, and keep it there until the weak foreign policy is changed so that we can keep our homeland free and secure.
YOU must do this. It is everyone's responsibility to insist on the safety and security of you and yours today, for who can say where another TERRORIST will strike next.
Hold the slackers accountable and make them change the Strategy of Unaccountability.
