Two out of three terrorist operations

An Islamic terrorist was intercepted with an explosive body bomb a few days ago that could’ve blown up an airplane, possibly killing hundreds of people, some even from the U.S.

Only it turns out he was an undercover CIA guy planted to infiltrate al-Qaeda. He was “our guy.” It turns out this was another “Fast and Furious” type exercise, where we plant something to track out where it goes, the same as the doctor does when he has you drink dye before scanning your body to try to cure you.

In this case, everything worked, but it was a gamble. In the “Fast and Furious” gun case in Mexico that has the Tea Party leaders faking outrage, it got tangled and failed. Same exact type program. (And who is dumb enough to think that U.S. border agent wouldn’t have been killed without a gun from the U.S.? 30,000 people have been killed in that border war in four years.)

Another high-risk operation that could’ve blown up if just one right thing had gone wrong, was the assassination of Osama bin Laden.

Score: 2 out of 3. Not too bad for high-risk operations. At least our president is trying to do things.

Then yesterday I heard reported another national bomb plot, but this one fizzled. It was detonated anyway, and turned out to be only a stink-bomb. It was Mitt Romney trying to claim he supported the loans and actions that President Obama took to keep GM and Chrysler in Detroit, Michigan from folding. Mr. Romney actually said ‘Let them fail.’ Whose side is he on, anyway?

Next I suppose he’ll claim inventing the Internet. Or maybe he’ll cure cancer!

Jennifer Granholm, current governor of Michigan says, “Dear Mitt: You did nothing to save just stop talking. Just stop.”
