The leadership of IS and many other terrorist organizations considering sending their members to America just got a get-out-of-jail-free card last weekend from President Barack Obama. Last spring the president gave the terrorists a heads up that he was going to make a decision on immigration and the border by Labor Day. The terrorist’s plans had to be accelerated in order to get as many terrorists and/or bad guys through the Mexican border and into the United States as quickly as possible.
It was reported by many major media outlets that the parlous journey from Central America to the Mexican U.S. border took about 45 to 60 days. I would imagine that for terrorists to get from Iran or Syria would take a lot longer. So when the President said, “I will make my decision by the end of summer,” Labor Day, the bad guys that were in the pipeline were it. They had to decide that there wasn’t enough time to get more terrorists into Mexico and the United States.
Now the president has told the terrorists and the bad guys, “I’m not going to make a decision until after the election in November or perhaps later.” The IS tour bus leaving from Tikrit, Iraq for Vera Cruse, Mexico just got filled and they are making extra runs.
I think the president would have been better off not saying anything and leaving it open-ended; because by doing so the terrorist’s leadership would be like deer on a dark night and frozen in the headlights of an oncoming Abrams tank.
The commander in chief doesn’t seem to know about military tactics rule number one, Never tell your enemy when you’re coming and when you are leaving. So the Department of Defense puts Ft. Bliss Texas right across the border from Vera Cruse on high alert of a possible IS attack. I guess the person that released the announcement about Ft. Bliss went to the same military tactics class the president took on the element of surprise.
