Obusha Accused of Ginning Up Terror Threat for Political Gain

Thursday, October 7, 2010

Hysterical U.S. terror alert issued this week about al-Qaeda plots to attack targets in Europe are politically motivated and not based on credible new information, this according to European intelligence officials and reported to the U.K. Guardian.

The vague U.S. warnings, which led to Britain, France and other countries to raise their overseas terror alert levels, was an attempt to justify a recent escalation in U.S. drone and helicopter attacks inside Pakistan. Pakistan is an obsession of President Obusha.

Wajid Shamsul Hasan, the high commissioner to Britain and a veteran diplomat who is close to Pakistan’s president, even suggested Mr. Obama was reacting to pressure to demonstrate that his Afghanistan war strategy and this year’s troop surge, which are unpopular with the American public, were behind the terror threat.

“I will not deny the fact that there may be internal political dynamics, including the forthcoming mid-term American elections. If the Americans have definite information about terrorists and al-Qaida people, we should be provided [with] that and we could go after them ourselves,” Hasan said.

European intelligence officials also pointed the finger at the U.S., and specifically at the White House. “To stitch together [the terror plot claims] in a seamless narrative is nonsensical,” said one well-placed official.

The sharp rise in U.S. unmanned drone attacks in Pakistan’s tribal areas, coupled with several cross-border raids by American helicopter gunships that culminated in the killing of two Frontier Corps soldiers last week, was destabilising Pakistan, Hasan said.

Hasan said Washington politicians failed to understand how much the U.S. needed Pakistan in the “war on terror”. Nor did they realise that public anger over repeated U.S. infringements of Pakistani sovereignty could boil over into attacks on American personnel and interests that the government might not be able to control.

“The government does not want to go down this road,” he said. “But people feel abused. If they [the Americans] kill someone again, they [the Pakistanis} will react. There is a figure that there are 3,000 American personnel in Pakistan. They would be very easy targets.”

President Barack Obusha: the more things change the more they remain the same.

    I have friends who just returned from Spain and Italy and I asked them about how Obama’s terror warning was received over ‘the Pond.’

    This is what I was told. The people of Spain and Italy just shrugged and said, “that’s America. They’re at war with everyone on earth.”

    In other words, No Sale, Barry.

    What terror alert? I learned over the years to ignore them.

    911 Revisited?

    Unfortunately, Europe is target for terrorists.

    We’ve dealt with this reality for many decades. But, why the USA wants to join this lifestyle is beyond comprehension to me. One would think Mr Obama’s global popularity would shield the USA from such things? However, American policy toward Pakistan might be a deal breaker.

    America can’t allow the Obama administration to drag it into a conflict with the Paks. They have many friends who will come to their defence including China.

    What annoys to me about President Obama is he told us he would be a different leader from George Bush but what we see is just a continuation of the same policies as his predecessor when it comes to foreign policy vis a vis Iraq and Afghanistan. Oh well, the US can’t keep paying this bill. The end result will be a collapse of the American Empire. Maybe that will be a good thing?

  6. Brigadoon says:

    Let’s see now. Americans have had enough of Obama and now the Europeans have soured on him? This truly qualifies as an epic fall from grace and stands as proof that Barack isn’t ready for primetime after all. He managed to fool everyone, though. Even me.

    Can you say: ‘October Surprise?’

  8. I hope everyone checks under their bed at night for sleeper cells.

    The French Burqa ban has aggravated the situation.

    France’s Constitutional Council decided Muslim women are no longer allowed to wear a Burqua or face covering veil in public.
    That is both a cultural & religious slap in the face to Muslims.

    I loathe terrorism & war (terrorism with a bigger budget), but it always amazes me that the countries whom engage in war, are shocked when retaliation occurs.

    That’s the problem with wars– they never bring about peace. None of it is justified.

    The few remaining O-bots want us to bow down and praise the Great Barry for ending the combat mission in Iraq.

    However, the reality is, 50,000 US troops remain in Iraq as “security advisers.” 50,000?

    The reason the Great Barry kept 50,000 US troops in Iraq is to participate in an American invasion and occupation of Pakistan next year.

    Conservative presidents like Bush and Barry are fans of the American Empire. The O-bots don’t want you to know this but there’s nothing remotely liberal or progressive about Obama.

  11. same old same old – the us govt thinks war and the like is just a big video game – and it keeps the masses at home paralyzed and entertained at the same time.

    obama is in charge – the buck stops there – and his policies of change make as much sense as anything coming out of Palin’s piehole

    I dunno. I’m not ready to hang anything on the President for this. We’ll see soon enough if that’s what is going on.
