And, as with most of Obama's more aggressive military moves, Freepers scramble for reasons why this sucks.
thethirddegree just assumes the leaks for the book came from Obama:
Since Obama has no accomplishments to run on, I expect him to continue to endanger national security by revealing progress in classified programs that he inherited but did not initiate.This thug will do and say anything to get re-elected.kevslisababy thinks it's possible the book is part of Obama's plan to take over the Internet:
I can’t help but wonder why this was divulged (if true, which I believe it is).Hunton Peck thinks Obama leaked it, but also that it's all lies:
I have three guesses:
1-It’s to make him look tough, like a “warrior”, and boost his sagging popularity.
2-It is to invite retaliation, which would raise the distinct possibility of the internet “kill switch” to protect our networks.
3-He is just stupid.
One sort of paradoxical thing thing about secret information is that the bad guys can claim anything they want to, secure in the knowledge that the good guys won’t reveal the truth, because the good guys actually care about national security more than personal ambition, even when that means letting a lie go unchallenged.cherokee1 doesn't cotton to anything that doesn't involved bombs.
What sane, thinking person would suppose that screwing with the Persians’ computers would keep them from building a bomb? We did it without any kind of computer geek help and so can they. Their older engineer types were educated here and can figger it out.pawdoggie laments that we used the virus to do effective things, and not figure out the best bombing sites:
Now I’m all for every possible effort to clusterflock the Persians-—they got it coming——but my personal preference is to use them to test our weapons in places where it would really count. The idea that slowing their program is beneficial is somehow desirable is pure bullstuff. The idea is to KILL their program and make them remember it.
If they had used this capability strictly to collect intelligence information, and refrained from blabbing about it, who knows what they might ultimately have discovered (names, locations, program status). But since the man-child never had any intention of using overt force, it was more politically expedient to score a temporary “victory” with STUXNET, rather than collecting targeting data for later on.RinaseaofDs explains how Obama's belligerence proves he's a secret pussy:
You take some depressed, bullied kid who’s been pushed too far and he comes to school looking to kill every kid with a ‘white hat’ on. This actually happened at Columbine.
Obama, well and truly, is a pussy, but the problem is he’s never actually had to stand up for himself. There’s always been someone or something running interference.
What if he overreacts to a provocation made by guys like Putin, or Dinner Jacket?
It’s just a thought. You see it from pussies who are resolute that they will never be known as a pussy ever again. It’s the only thing I can ascribe the Osama kill nonsense, and the Obama the dronemaster meme too.
Vermont Lt is about to join Code Pink:
When did it become OK for the US to attack another country without he bullshit war powers act authorization?
This has me beyond angry.
This clown is goingbtonhave us all sitting around a campfire with our thumbs up our butts.
People will die because of his incompetence.
