Obama to Visit Ft Hood – Genuine Grief or PR Gimmick?

November 7, 2009

National news media reports that Barrack Hussein Obama plans to visit Fort Hood next week, purportedly to participate in solemn ceremonies to honor those who lost their lives in the tragic mass killing last week.  However, one cannot help but wonder if his visit is motiviated by genuine grief, or political considerations.  Just when was the last time he ever stepped foot on a military installation outside of a campaign stop?  Like me, many think think that he could do more for our soldiers if he made a decision with respect to the request from his personally selected field general to “send more troops.”   Moreover, the Presidential visit will complicate any possibility that a fair court-martial can be convened at Fort Hood.  Personally, it looks like this is just another photo-op for him.   Otherwise, he probably should have made many more earlier stops at Arlington and elsewhere where noble young soldiers have been buried since he took office.

    I am wondering if the media will ignore the fact that Obama administration has taken the teeth out of our Terrorist protection systems and activities. The case could be made that this shooting can be directly attributed to Obama’s, and Pelosi’s interference with the CIA, FBI etc. internal terrorist protection activities. Maybe the ACLU will step up and take some of the blame also.

    There was a good comment that came from one of our more informed legal contributors. If the terrorist were tried via military courts then Obama would have to sign off on the death sentence. If tried in a non military court he would not have to sign off on it. So it seems very apparant why he wants them tried in non military courts so he does not have to sign off on his fellow Muslins. Makes a lot of sense when looked at from that perspective doesn’t it? Then he can go around the world appolgizing for our Legal system that he has not yet been able to circumnavigate but will be working on it.
