"It's becoming clear that the system that's been in place for years now is not sufficiently up to date to take full advantage of the information we collect and the knowledge we have,"
Barrack Obama, Dec 29, 2009
This can clearly interpreted as "it's Bush's fault", Obama's answer to anything that has gone wrong for the last 11 months. Believe me, a lot has gone wrong in the last 11 months.
Let's look at the facts though.
-The federal government had intelligence about the Fort Hood shooter, almost the entire amount collected under Obama's watch, and they did nothing. 13 people died and 30 people were wounded.
-The federal government knew that the underwear bomber was a threat and yet he was not placed on the do not fly list. By the grace of God only was no one injured or killed.
-George Bush went 7 and half years without a terrorist attack.
It sounds to me like the Bush administration had an intelligence network set-up. The difference is, they knew how to use it.
Obama is right about one thing though, it is George Bush's fault. For leaving office and letting us suffer under this goofball and his inept staff.
