Billy Roy Mitchum, local Merle Haggard type country and western singer, thinks the President was a day late and dollar short in accepting responsibility for the performance of our intelligence community as demonstrated by the Christmas Day Jihadist Bomber, "After using every kind of wiggle his people could think of, including saying the system worked, finally our leader after two weeks decided to try the old 'it's my fault' trick. The way bigger problem is that Obama doesn't have a clue as to what he has done wrong nor how to fix much less manage anything, and particularly something this complex and important."
BR then looked to Butch Jackson, local owner of all statictics and historian of some local fame, for confirmation. Butch pulled from his pocket a little read crumpled print out of an L. A. Times article published just a few short months after the Obama Administration had started the destruction (he says transformation) of the American dream and began to read:
"FBI planning a bigger role in terrorism fight
Bureau agents will gather evidence to ensure that criminal prosecutions of alleged terrorists are an option. The move is a reversal of the Bush administration's emphasis on covert CIA actions.

WASHINGTON — The FBI and Justice Department plan to significantly expand their role in global counter-terrorism operations, part of a U.S. policy shift that will replace a CIA-dominated system of clandestine detentions and interrogations with one built around transparent investigations and prosecutions.
Under the "global justice" initiative, which has been in the works for several months, FBI agents will have a central role in overseas counter-terrorism cases. They will expand their questioning of suspects and evidence-gathering to try to ensure that criminal prosecutions are an option, officials familiar with the effort said."
After a stunning pause Butch said, "This is only one of many things, including allowing Holder (the Attorney General) to investigate CIA interrogations, that Obama has done to completely neuter our intelligence community. The liberal elites hate the military, and they hate the intelligence organizations even more. Now as the President's Preacher Rev. Wright says 'the chickens are coming home to roost', and there is chicken shit all over the White House."
Scotty Andersen, local summarizer of wisdom, wrapped it up, "This little article about the CIA is just one of hundreds of stupid things this bunch has done and is doing. This country has a real big shovel and can dig out of most anything, but I'll tell you what, we better start digging damn soon."
Think about it,
