Download File The following is a KSCO commentary. Here is Kay Zwerling.Gerald Warner, in the British Telegraph, recently printed a hard-hitting commentary, and boy am I glad that the world is waking up. It is called: Why does President Obama hate America so badly? If Al Qaeda, the Taliban and the rest of the Looney Tunes brigade want to kick America to death, they had better move in quickly and grab a piece of the action before Barack Obama finishes the job himself. Never in the history of the United States has a president worked so actively against the interests of his own people - not even Jimmy Carter.Obama’s problem is that he does not know who the enemy is. To him, the enemy does not squat in caves, clutching automatic weapons and reciting the more militant verses from the Koran: instead, it sits around at tea parties in Kentucky quoting from the U.S. Constitution. Obama is not at war with terrorists, but with his Republican fellow citizens. He has never abandoned the campaign trail.That is why he opened Pandora’s Box by publishing the Justice Department’s legal opinions on waterboarding and other hardline interrogation techniques. He cynically subordinated the national interest to his partisan desire to embarrass the Republicans. Then he had to rush to Langley, Virginia, to try to reassure a demoralized CIA that had just discovered the President of the United States was an even more formidable foe than Al Qaeda.Don’t be discouraged by what’s happened the last few weeks, he told intelligence officers. Is he kidding? Thanks to him, Al Qaeda knows the private interrogation techniques available to the U.S. intelligence agencies and can train its operatives to withstand them. So, next time a senior Al Qaeda hood is captured, all the CIA can do is ask him nicely if he would care to reveal when a major population center is due to be hit by a terror spectacular, or which American city is about to be irradiated by a dirty bomb. Your view of this situation will be dictated by one simple criterion: whether or not you watched the people jumping from the Twin Towers.President Obama’s recent world tour, cozying up to all the bad guys, excited the ambitions of America’s enemies. Here, they realized, is a sucker they can really take to the cleaners. His only enemies are fellow Americans. Which prompts the question: why does President Obama hate America so much? For KSCO, this is Kay Zwerling. copyright 2009
