News reporters and analysts are starting to question why the President was caught flat footed regarding the Egyptian uprising. Yes indeed. And where is his leadership now by the way? Mute in the White House. Well it appears that Obama was informed about Middle East trouble over a year ago. He was derelict of duty then and he still is derelict in his duty to protect American interests. Are you surprised? I'm not. This is truly the first anti-American president we've ever had. No one comes close. Read the article below and see the comparison with Ronald Reagan and his troubles with Iran. Iran knew they did not have a patsy in Reagan. Obama on the other hand is responsible for this mess because the Middle East smells weakness and understands that Obama is NOT Ronald Reagan.
One of President Obama's own nominees has revealed that the CIA briefed him on impending trouble for the Mubarak government. A stronger president surely would have acted.
In October 2008, less than a month before Barack Obama's election, Investor's Business Daily warned — and not for the first time — about the dangers of electing someone president who would project the image of a weak America to our enemies around the world.
"An early sign of the coming greatness of the Reagan presidency," we noted, "was that within an hour of the former actor's taking the oath of office, the Ayatollah Khomeini's Islamofascist regime in Iran released the 52 U.S. hostages it had been holding for 444 days."
As we pointed out, "Somehow, Ronald Reagan's lack of foreign policy experience didn't give Tehran the impression it would be a good idea to find out what he was made of; the mullahs already knew."
Now it's been revealed that Obama was warned about instability in Egypt. During testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee last Thursday, Sen. Ron Wyden, D-Ore., asked associate deputy director of the CIA Stephanie O'Sullivan when, and how well, the president had been briefed on the country's impending unrest.
O'Sullivan, who is Obama's nominee for principal deputy director of national intelligence — the No. 2 post in the massive, multi-agency U.S. intelligence community — told Wyden: "We warned of instability but not exactly where it would come from," and "we didn't know what the triggering mechanism would be."
The briefing warning of what now looks to be a revolutionary crisis in Egypt "happened at the end of last year," O'Sullivan said. READ : WHEN DID THE PRESIDENT KNOW IT? at IBD.
