Does anyone believe Robert Gibbs’ weekend doozie that during a 3,000-second interrogation of terrorist Abdulmutallab we “got all [we] could out of him” or President Obama’s equally flimsy “I will do everything in my power… to keep America safe” even as he allowed that terrorist to be Mirandized before a single intelligence official could ask him a single question?
Holder’s Christmas “Present”
By Asher Embry
Of all Obama’s worst mistakes
The one from which our trust most shakes,
The biggest blunder of them all,
Occurred with Holder’s Christmas call
To treat Mutallab like a crook
A flub which in an instant took
A crucial opportunity
To fight our War successfully.
How can Obama stand and say
He’s working at this every day,
And doing everything he can
To keep us safe from such a man?
O’s Goebbels – Gibbs – still tells the nation
That Umar’s quick interrogation
Which lasted 50 minutes long
(Oprah’d spend more with Cheech & Chong)
Could give us all we had to know
To stop these terror threats which grow.
If that’s the case, why’d O insist
An “isolated extremist”
Attacked that plane, when he’d have known
The terror plot was Yemen-grown?
If O’s response has been so good
Why did it not start with Fort Hood?
If he’d addressed the problems then
We wouldn’t be unfocused when
The Christmas bomber’s Dad made clear
To keep his Qaeda son from here.
The message comes right from the top
To take the steps we need to stop
The threat of Terror War attacks
And ne’er go back to being lax.
O blew our chance for fresh intel.
Unless reversed the cost will swell,
Will haunt Barack, increase our fears,
And threaten all our lives for years.
