OBAMA’S BLUNDER: MISSING LIBYAN SURFACE TO AIR MISSILES"
Published on DickMorris.com on September 27, 2011 is an article titled, "OBAMA’S BLUNDER: MISSING LIBYAN SURFACE TO AIR MISSILES".
I would like to give the benefit of the doubt to the President, but I can't. His failure of leaderlship has flipped control of Lybia to folks who don't like America. Now they could be armed with heat-seeking surface to air missiles capable of taking out an airliner at a range of 2 miles.
Mr. President, instead of pushing for Mob Rule with that so called 'Arab Spring', you should have been trying to stabelize the area.
Didn't you consider who might take the Lybian leadership mantle once Muammar Gaddafi was out?
What might happen happens now if terrorists go ahold of these missiles? Do we set up a defensive perimeter for a 5 mile radius around all US airports? You can hire alot of union workers for that huh?
Maybe you knew Lybia's army and the Muslim Brotherhood would take hold there. Maybe you knew destablizing the area would mean higher risks to us over here. Maybe you hoped for these things would come to pass: I don't know, but it sure is weird how everything you do has the "unintended consequences".
According to the Morris post, those terroristscan simply sit in a boat with the 55 pound weapon, and they'll be able to shoot down airliners as they make approaches to JFK airport.
This is not good. The president is failing us with his lack of leadership.
