Mr Obama, referring to the US policy in Iraq, said: "If you talk to General [David] Petraeus, I think he would argue that part of the success in Iraq involved reaching out to people that we would consider to be Islamic fundamentalists, but who were willing to work with us because they had been completely alienated by the tactics of al-Qaeda in Iraq."
- A COMMANDER IN CHIEF MUST NEVER PUT WORLDS INTO THE MOUTHS OF HIS SUBORDINATES.
- HOW CAN PETRAEUS PUBLICLY CORRECT HIS COMMANDER IN CHIEF WITHOUT MAKING OBAMA LOOK LIKE AN ASS!?
ANYTHING LESS AIDS THE ENEMY.
He also discussed what the US would do if a terror suspect appeared in a country without an extradition arrangement with the US.
"There could be situations - and I emphasise 'could be' because we haven't made a determination yet - where, let's say that we have a well-known al-Qaeda operative that doesn't surface very often, appears in a third country with whom we don't have an extradition relationship or would not be willing to prosecute, but we think is a very dangerous person," he said."I think we still have to think about how do we deal with that kind of scenario," he added.
- OBAMA SHOULD NOT TELEGRAPH THAT HE HAS NO CONTINGENCIES FOR SUCH A POSSIBLE SITUATION. HE SHOULD INTIMATE WE HAVE CONTINGENCIES.
- OBAMA IS AN IDIOT AND UNQUALIFIED TO BE COMMANDER IN CHIEF.
- OUR ENEMIES KNOW THIS.
OR IS HE DELIBERATELY SABOTAGING OUR EFFORTS!?
