CHICAGO NEWS CONFERENCE: Obama response to terror threat is inadequate

U. S. Senate candidate Andy Martin charges that President Barack Obama’s response to the growing terror threat is “less than 1/3 of a solution. Obama continues to be a 98-pound weakling on national security.”

(CHICAGO)(January 5, 2010) Republican U. S. Senate candidate and insurgent “Internet Powerhouse” Andy Martin will hold a Chicago news conference Tuesday, January 5th to challenge President Barack Obama’s latest security procedures as woefully inadequate.

“Obama’s ‘security’ effort is less than 1/3 of what is the minimum required,” Martin charges.

“First, we need enhanced airline security, targeted at terrorist nations. That has apparently been partially implemented. Where is the commitment to full-body scanners?

Second, we need to counterattack the terrorists in their training bases, and hunt down their leaders overseas. Where is this phase of the action? Ten years ago the U. S. S. Cole was blown up in Yemen. A decade later, we are going backwards. Yemen is deteriorating. How’s that for progress? Both Republicans and Democrats have failed to stabilize Yemen.

“Finally, we need to target domestic jihadis and other potential domestic terrorists. I don’t want to see any Fort Dix or Fort Hood-style attacks.

“In particular, I would ban any Somali immigration to this country. We have created our own domestic enemies by settling Somalis across the United States. These people have spawned at least one terror network, in Minnesota, which sent trainees to Somalia, and possibly other sleeper cells. Why are we importing Somalis to undermine our national security?

“Unless we enhance all aspects of national security and counterterrorism with efforts to detect and disrupt and destroy both the domestic and overseas threats, merely screening passengers at airports will be less than 1/3 of the solution,” Martin charges.

“Is Obama fighting a war, or playing pattycake with terrorists? It is hard to tell. Unless and until Obama commits himself to war-fighting and tackles the domestic terror training associations, he is not doing enough to protect Americans. Obama continues to be a 98-pound weakling on national security.”
