High-level national security meeting at White House while Obama plays golf
I'm sure al-Qaeda is suitably impressed with the seriousness with which our president takes the threat of a terrorist attack in the next few days.
Meanwhile, back at the White House, the adults in the Obama administration met to discuss the most serious and specific terrorist threat to US interests since the 9/11 attacks:
Attending that White House meeting was a who's who of intelligence and national security officials, including:
White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough
National Security Advisor Susan Rice
Deputy National Security Advisor Tony Blinken
Assistant to the President for Homeland Security and Counterterrorism Lisa Monaco
Deputy National Security Advisor to the Vice President Jeff Prescott
Secretary of State John Kerry
Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel
Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Martin Dempsey
U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power
Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano
Director of National Intelligence James Clapper
Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation Robert Mueller
Director of the Central Intelligence Agency John Brennan
Director of the National Security Agency Keith Alexander
Director of the National Counterterrorism Center Matthew Olsen
Acting Assistant Attorney General John Carlin"
But no Barack Obama. This must be a rope-a-dope strategy as Obama's suicidally casual approach to the threat knocks AQAP off balance, scaring them off by dazzling them with his uncaring attitude.
It was Obama's birthday on Sunday. Does it matter that he spent 6 hours on Saturday playing golf rather than deal with the terrorist threat?
I guess we'll find out in the next few days.
