The Real Reason Obama Misses Presidential Daily Briefings

By now most of my readers have most likely read of the reports (1) that President Barack Obama, in the week leading up to the attacks on the U.S. embassy in Cairo and the murder of U.S. Libyan Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans, missed every single daily intelligence briefing , and in so doing displaced Jimmy Carter as the Worst US President in History.
You may wonder why a sitting President would miss so many of these briefings - the answer is rather simple; Obama does not want to hear that our country faces danger from Muslims. He cannot stand to hear the words Muslim and terrorist in the same sentence or so close together.
It has gotten so bad, that even after everyone in his administration finally admitted (2) that the Libyan attack had nothing to do with some offensive film about the alleged prophet Mohammed, he still couldn't blame Muslim terrorists for the attack when he spoke at the UN, instead he attacked the maker of the film and anyone else who criticizes Islam, saying: "The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam...(3)"
What a low-life, appeasing, pandering piece of shit.
Breitbart, 12 Sep 2012, Exclusive: No Record of Intel Briefings for Obama Week Before Embassy Attacks
According to the White House calendar, there is no public record of President Barack Obama attending his daily intelligence briefing--known as the Presidential Daily Brief (PDB)--in the week leading up to the attacks on the U.S. embassy in Cairo and the murder of U.S. Libyan Ambassador Chris Stevens and three American members of his staff.
According to a recent study by the Government Accountability Institute, Mr. Obama has only attended 43.8 percent of his Presidential Daily Briefs in the first 1,225 days of his Administration.
The White House responded by claiming that President Obama reads daily intelligence reports, even if he does not attend the briefings personally.
The Atlantic Wire, Obama Administration Finally Admits That the Libya Attack Was Terrorism
It took quite some time for senior administration officials to admit what they appear to have known all along, but both President Obama and Hillary Clinton have begun to acknowledge that the September 11 attack on the Libyan consulate was the work al-Qaeda linked terrorists. During a meeting at the United Nations yesterday, Clinton became the highest ranking administration member to say publicly that terrorists were behind the attack that killed Libyan ambassador Christopher Stevens.
“[I]t is the obligation of all leaders, in all countries, to speak out forcefully against violence and extremism. It is time to marginalize those who -- even when not directly resorting to violence -- use hatred … as a central organizing principle of politics,” Obama said.
Later in his speech, Obama offered an example of those whose opinions should be marginalized: “The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam. Yet to be credible, those who condemn that slander must also condemn the hate we see in the images of Jesus Christ that are desecrated...”
"Slander" is speech. "Hate" usually takes the form of speech, too. Is Obama calling on world leaders to join him in ridiculing non-violent people whose speech he does not like? Or by “marginalization” does he mean something worse than tough words from the bully pulpit?
Obama’s new doctrine is frightening in two senses. His call to “marginalize” those who "slander" or "hate" encourages the autocrats of Iran, Syria, and other regimes to punish dissidents while also threatening to shrink the free speech rights of Americans.
