Barack Obama Alienating Allies

One of the biggest criticisms the Democrats had of former President George W. Bush was that he alienated the rest of the world by acting unilaterally on world issues. Barack Obama has gone on an apology tour around the world begging the world for forgiveness for America's arrogance.

So what's the deal with Barack Obama going behind Britain's back and negotiating unilaterally with Bermuda, a UK colony, to settle four Uighurs there? The British government had the right to know and the US government had the obligation to tell them what they were doing. The arrogance and disrespect toward Britain and its sovereignty is mind blowing.

Imagine if the tables were turned and the British placed terrorists on the US Virgin Islands without the US government's knowledge. Obama would be furious and would take Brown to task for acting so disrespectfully.

The Obama administration was quick with an excuse:

Now a senior US official has told the BBC it was a deliberate decision not to consult London on the resettlement, after other countries came under pressure from China not to accept the Uighurs.


In a highly unusual move, a senior US official said Washington opted to keep details of the deal from London until the last minute to enable Britain to deny all knowledge of the deal and thus avoid China's anger, says the BBC's Washington correspondent Kim Ghattas.

Isn't that special.

Last time I checked, I don't think the Chinese gave a flying *&^% where they went as long as it wasn't China. Another epic lame answer from the WH. Still waiting on real journalists to figure out that they are mere pawns to the WH and start doing real reporting.

If you've spent any time in the U.S. Virgin Islands (and I have), it would not be hard for a terrorist (or illegal migrant workers) to swim from Tortola to St. John. Not hard at all.

Rahm Emanuel talking to staffer in the background: "Yo!, who the f**ks this guy again?"

Background staffer's voice: "Aahh.... Bermuda premier Ewart Brown"

Rahm Emanuel talking to Ewart Brown: "Look!!! Take the Chinese dudes, and the 130 Mill and STFU. Anyone asks any questions, just tel them "My bad, we thought you knew about the deal""

Obama apparently thinks our relationship with the British can be taken for granted. Disappointing, but not very surprising given his dim view of his own country.

grizzly bare:

"Arrogance", thy name is Obama. This guy
reeks of smugness anytime he flaps his gums.
"Words, just words" is his motto. But why
not?....the bootlicking media props him up
devotedly, dismisses his failures.....
much like the parents of a spoiled brat. THEY
have the temper tantrum, not he, when he's
questioned by ANYONE. This is a pathologic
presidency.

The Distributist:

Innocent my arse - They are Chinese muslims captured on the field of battle that the Chinese will likely prosecute and deal harshly with. What could be our problem with that? Perhaps we should send them all to do what our government metrosexuals are not willing or able to do.
