All Americans should be aware of some very disturbing events that speak to the state of terrorism, the strength of al Qaeda and our nation's security. In light of the danger unfolding around us, we also need to question whether or not President Obama's administration is serious about confronting what is clearly a gathering storm, or whether, in fact, his policies are encouraging those who wish to harm us.
One of the more shocking events illustrating the growing strength of al Qaeda is the release of a video this week showing what CNN reports as "the largest and most dangerous gathering of al Qaeda in years." It's what experts think is a recent gathering of the terrorist group's leadership and more than 100 fighters in Yemen.
For an administration that does not hide its eagerness to use drones to kill terrorists, experts and journalists alike were wondering whether our intelligence community knew about this meeting, and if so, why didn't they take the opportunity to kill the most dangerous of them with one drone strike?
The terrorists on the video seem strangely unconcerned with their safety, as though there was no need for them to feel at risk. When asked about the brazenness of the gathering, Rep. Mike Rogers, Michigan Republican and chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, noted on CNN: "We think that they're feeling empowered. The less pressure you put on them, the more they take that as a victory ... ."
It now appears al Qaeda was "on the run" in the same way you were able to keep your doctor and hospital.
Whether we didn't know about the gathering, or did and chose to do nothing, it's another signal to the beasts around the world that no one is home in Washington, D.C.
The dangerous circus created by the Obama regime's rules doesn't stop there.
Sept. 11 victims' families are asserting they think the Obama administration is deliberately sabotaging the trials at Guantanamo, and insist the FBI is meddling in the cases, according to reports in the Free Beacon.
Unfortunately, both Mr. Obama and Attorney General Eric H. Holder have a history with the American people that not only doesn't engender trust, but suggests efforts that are directly harming the nation and the American people, while pushing an agenda benefiting the terrorists.
