Obama Sees ‘Serious Threat’ to the U.S. from Trained Terrorists

Burgess Everett, Politico, June 29, 2014

The United States has been “under serious threat” from terrorists during his entire presidency, President Barack Obama says.

In an interview with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos aired Sunday on “This Week,” the president highlighted the growing fears that those trained in Middle East terrorist cells can go back to Europe or the United States to execute an attack.

“They’re gaining strength in some places. We’ve seen Europeans who are sympathetic to [the terrorist] cause traveling into Syria, and now may travel into Iraq, getting battle-hardened. Then they come back, they have European passports, they don’t need a visa to get into the United States,” Obama said. “We’re spending a lot of time, and we have been for years, making sure that we are improving intelligence so we can respond to that.”

    “Obama Sees ‘Serious Threat’ to the U.S. from Trained Terrorists”

    I see a ‘serious threat to the U.S. from Obama.

    • Pro_Whitey

      He wasn’t referring to himself?

      • A Freespeechzone

        When you have no borders, reinforced since Reagan—and amplified by Obama, it’s not a matter of if…but when we are hit again.

        • ElComadreja

          I certainly haven’t forgotten the way Reagan caved on this issue. We haven’t had a president deal with this invasion realistically since Eisenhower.

  • Luca

    He forgot to mention another port of entry for terrorists, namely our southern border.

    • Bossman

      Terrorists usually want to succeed in their mission and are usually financed by some group so I doubt very much that they would use a hazardous path that could result in death or failure before they accomplished their mission.

      • Luca

        Because they are well financed they can pay MS-13 or other high-priced coyotes to escort them safely. I really shouldn’t have to explain that.

  • And yet last October, Obama want us to intervene on behalf of these same Syrian AQ/linked terrorists.

    • Sick of it

      He is still pushing for us to aid the “moderate” forces over there against Assad. We all know that these “moderate” forces are on the same side as ISIS.

      • me

        Indeed! This loser of a potus is the biggest financier and cheerleader of the ‘terrorists’. I wonder if he’s talking about those five he traded for that punk Bergdahl. Don’t let your children join the military.

        • Tarczan

          Yup. Why would anyone join with O as CIC?

      • PvtCharlieSlate

        I have become thoroughly suspicious of any reference to a “moderate” this-that-t’other group. Sort of a red flag – like sentences that begin “Sadly, …”

      • ElComadreja

        “Moderate Muslims” are as real as the Easter bunny.

  • JohnEngelman

    The threat of terrorism can be reduced through race profiling. Young Arab men are more likely to be terrorists than middle aged white women.

    • Sick of it

      Muslim women have also committed acts of terrorism. The common equation is a single religion.

      • ElComadreja

        There is also no shortage of Caucasian Muslims from present and former Russian Republics.

    • NoMosqueHere

      Common sense is racist.

  • Tarczan

    I foresee massive terror attacks commencing after the Muslim leaves office. Don’t you just love it the way this traitor pretends he is “worried ” about the US? I would love to know what the military really thinks. They keep there mouths shut to protect their precious pensions.

    • Ella

      Well, a massive terrorist attack will not look good under his administration; Obama worries about his public image and reputation in future school textbooks.

      • Mike Lane

        I think if push came to shove, the military (at least the soldiers and those who see action, along with a few high ranking commanders) would be on our side. Most of those in military are sympathetic to true Americana and could never kill their own brothers on American soil. You can bet the National Guard wants nothing to do with a domestic uprising.

  • Hubbub

    The majority of those ‘Europeans’ who are making their ways to Syria are, in American parlance, Arab-Europeans – not of traditional European stock. Albeit, there are always a few crazies who pretend to be something they are not, you know, useful idiots.

    • Grand Vizier

      Thank God, they always need an Arab name (remember that allah only speaks arabic), that is a dead giveaway.

      Some 38 years ago I asked an English immigration officer upon arrival in London why they check travellers from Norway ( I am Norwegian), when they are not allowed to check travellers from Northern-Ireland, and give travellers from Arab-countries the same check as Norwegians. (This was when the PLO still was in the habit of hijacking planes).

      He said: “Move along!”

    ““They’re gaining strength in some places. We’ve seen Europeans who are
    sympathetic to [the terrorist] cause traveling into Syria, and now may
    travel into Iraq, getting battle-hardened.”

    I see a bunch of arab muslims living in Europe going to fight in Syria and Iraq, I don’t see any ethnic Europeans traveling to Syria and Iraq.

    • ncpride

      Exactly. How dare he refer to these Muslims as European. They use similar tactics to inflate ‘White crime’ by calling Mexican criminals White. Just more demonization of real Europeans.

  • Zaporizhian Sich

    You can be sure of one thing, this menace of Muslim terrorists being able to enter white nations at will was a manufactured crisis. The purposes of which was to enable devastating terror attacks against whites in their own land or lands, create the pretext for rendering travel impossible for whites, and crushing dissent. They would go so far as to level a city with a nuclear bomb to achieve all three aims. If that happens, you can expect most of the globe to be under marital law indefinitely. This is not ultimately about terrorism or its prevention thereof, it’s ultimately about turning all of our lands into enemy alien ruled police states that kill more of us than the Soviets ever could have.

    • me

      Create a crisis, then sell the solution of more militarization, more draconian laws, and more control over the population. Insidious.

    • Sick of it

      There was a rumor that such a nuclear incident was planned in South Carolina after a nuke disappeared (from a base in TX I believe). Once the rumor went all over the place, the military got very quiet about the missing nuke and it has yet to resurface.

      • Katherine McChesney

        I read a few years ago that there were five missing suitcase nukes. Don’t know if it was a conspiracy theory but anything could be truth related to terrorism in America. And I don’t trust the CIA or the FBI to protect us from Muslim terrorists.

        • Sick of it

          To trust the creators of terrorist networks to protect you from terrorism would indeed be sheer lunacy.

        • Tarczan

          Yes, but we are protected from Christian terroists.

          • Katherine McChesney

            Explain yourself. The only religious terrorists are Muslims. And truthfully Islam is not a religion but an ideology.

          • Tarczan

            Oh, agreed. I was just joking that the only people this Satanic government thinks are a threat is the Christians. I’ve actually met some who believe it. And yes, islam is really a political movement masquerading as a religion.

          • Katherine McChesney

            I didn’t realize your sarcasm. Now I understand.

  • IstvanIN

    I heard this piece of [email protected] on the radio and those men are not Europeans, they are Arabs who happen to live in Europe. They are no more European than he is a real American.

  • NoMosqueHere

    This lying Boneheaded creep is arming Al Qaeda in Syria as well as arming and training the PLO, and he’s warning americans about a “serious threat from trained terrorists?”

  • IKUredux

    If the leaders from White countries had never allowed immigration from the third world shitholes of the world, we woudn’t even be concerned about this shiite. The 9/11 hijackers should never have been allowed into this country. They want to learn how to fly an airplane, let them learn in their country of origin. If their country of origin, does not provide lessons: tough shiite. Our White governments have unleashed this hell on us. All the terrorist attacks that have occurred in Europe, and the U.S. would have been avoided if we had not allowed the scum Muslims to move in. So, let’s recount about the benefits of diversity: The number of jobs created by Muslims in the U.S. and G.B? Hell, I don’t know, but I can tell you one thing: if there were ANY jobs whatsoever, we would have those numbers shoved down our throats. So, why the hell are they being allowed into our previous White countries? Now, let us assume that the most benign motivation is behind this movement. We Whites are enlightened, we believe in the equality of man! Let me tell you something: TPTB know exactly what is what, they know that Blacks are stupid, they know that Asians, despite scoring high on I.Q. tests are nothing more than smart sheep. These people in power, KNOW THAT NO MATTER WHAT, NO MATTER HOW MUCH MONEY IS SPENT, they KNOW that Blacks and Hispanics can never be made to catch up. DO YOU UNDERSTAND THAT??? THEY KNOW!!!! THEY HAVE ALWAYS KNOWN!!! AND YET, THEY STILL MADE WE WHITES TO PAY FOR THE SO CALLED IMPROVEMENTS to the education system. My God, every solitary so called professional group is against us! They just need more money! OMG! No they don’t! Do you not understand? We are being SUCKERED!!!!!

  • Bring it, boys.

  • John Smith

    Obama is right. Remember Richard Reid? White English mother, Jamaican father. Almost succeeded in blowing up a plane. Multiply him x 10000 and you get the current reality in Britain. The intellectual chattering classes there despise America and would like to see it attacked. All you Obama haters can make snarky jokes, just hope you’re not on that plane or subway when some deranged British Paki makes his political “statement” about U.S. foreign policy. And whenever you take your shoes off at the airport, thank Britain.

    • IstvanIN

      I don’t fly and don’t go to New York so they can do as they please.

      • John Smith

        Right because they would only attack New York.

        • The Muzzies are stupid enough to think there are only a few cities in a 3000-mile-wide country. As much as I hate Denver, I’d almost like to see them paste that one, but I have friends in the suburbs, like Glenn Gordon and Mr. DD-121, so no thanks.

          Jesus, how effing Scottish is a name like Glenn Gordon?

          My schools growing up were full of Scots, Irish and Germans: Brian and Ed Myers, Tom Flynn, Glenn Gordon, Diane McConkey, David McKee, Sarah Ghillie and so-on.

    • We just thank mudsharks for guys like Reid.

  • Obama is a wolf in sheep’s cover, Obama has caused this and enabled the infiltration of the enemy onto American soil ..Obama is one of the bad guy’s

  • Mike Lane

    “Europeans who are sympathetic to the [terrorist] cause”. Riiiiiiiiight! More like the scum Europe is letting in.

  • jayvbellis

    Make ugly, racially alien, scary looking Muslim extremists the main propaganda enemy, the reason we must end all non a White immigration.

    Populist, nationalist parties in Switzerland, Holland and France do just this and it works.

    Regular Whites don’t like Muslims terrorists, Muslim men that rape English girls, Swedish girls, or just no fun Muslims that won’t let regular White folks have a beer or a BBQ pork spare ribs.

    It ‘s easy to sell opposition toMuslim immigrant terrorism.

    Outside of Libertarian loons like Ron Paul and Rand Paul and insane, crazed anti Semitic Jew haters, who likes, defends Muslim immigrant terrorists?

  • Peter Lamoureux

    President Obama does more damage to this nation than terrorists.

  • jayvbellis

    Islamic terrorists have been attacking in Lib Leftist places like New York City and Cambridge Mass at the Boston Marathon”.

    Conservatives in Red States should buy up property in Lib Leftist Blue states, then rent to the worst Muslim extremists.

    Also, try some black propaganda. Hire some Hindu Indian guy to dress and act like a radical Muslim, blast loud Islamic prayers, chanting to annoy open borders immigration Liberal loons.

    And, after the next Islamic slaughter in some Lib Blue State area, put out insulting signs and banners.

    “Hey Boston, have you had enough DIVERSITY yet? “

  • Trained anti-American, anti-Constitutional , anti-Bill of Rights.
    These are just some of the traitorous progressive garbage that must be removed
    if America is to survive ..
