Obama and General McCrystal, Copenhagen Meeting October 2, 2009
Readers of NoQuarter know that when it comes to my assessment of Barack Obama’s support of the military in the so-called “war” on terrorism I have given him high marks and credited him with being aggressive in going after terrorist cells. Well, the worm has turned. The military’s ability to confront terrorists, which already was limited because the terrorists don’t normally organize in ways that make them easy to hit with military assets, is now being further hindered by a combination of Obama actions and military caution. In essence the brakes are being applied and we are likely to see fewer results in the future. Why? Because the military no longer trusts Barack Obama.

A model of the US Embassy in Battersea, complete with moat 30m wide and rolling parkland.
The United States has unveiled plans for its new $1 billion high-security embassy in London — the most expensive it has ever built.
The proposals were met with relief from both the present embassy’s Mayfair neighbours and the residents and developers of the Battersea wasteland where the vast crystalline cube, surrounded by a moat, will be built.
