Our protectors, chosen voluntarily, Chapter One. John Brennan, moral coward

In the "Looming Tower" by Lawrence Wright, a pitiless, accurate look at how we started in 1993, and a bit earlier and ended at 9/11, Wright (with confirmation by many others) makes the point over and over that MULTIPLE chances were had in the clear to kill Bin Laden but that the 'White House' stopped each and every one. This has been reinforced by Bob Baer, and Gary Bernsten and now Michael Scheuer has identified for us WHO the 'White House' executive was that made sure we did not kill Bin Laden.

Not Tenet (as ABC seemed to indicate). No.

Why it's the man who would be Jack Bauer's uber boss, if we had a Jack Bauer .. John Brennan, the man Barack Obama has made our Chief of Counter-terrorism.

The man who says we could have leveraged the dots if we had the dots and the leverage.
Barack Obama said yesterday 'we are at war'.
Why then does he retain a counterterror chief with a temerity quotient of 0.001?
Why retain men and women who think stuff was working and WENT ON VACATION BECAUSE NO ONE TOLD THEM THEY COULD NOT?

What kind of people do such things? What kind of responsibility and INITIATIVE allows such behavior?

Worse still, what kind of responsibility to the people allows reading of Miranda rights when an enemy war-fighter tells you 300 more just like him ARE TRAINED AND READY? Is conviction MORE IMPORTANT than getting those other Al Qaeda war fighters? FIND ANOTHER ROUTE TO HOLD THE MAN (OPERATION PASTORIUS). Are the airlines and the commercial traffic they encompass, and results throughout industry not key economic targets? Was FDR's course not a good enough example for today's progressives?

Maybe these people have never read about Gentleman Johnny Burgoyne and the results of insufficient cooperation, and aggressiveness

But why have such people been deemed appropriate to conduct a war? Appointed to begin with? Obama cannot complain that this was the 'army' he had to fight with at the outset. These are hand picked warfighters.

Wars are not fought aggressively with scanners.
Nor with such people directing and planing actions

Without an official declaration of war & Obama exempting INTERPOL from the constitutional controls that bind all US law enforcement agencies -- what's going on?

I learned about Operation Pastorius about three years ago. Ever since then I have worried that people would accuse me of having Nazi sympathies because of the name.
