On the Subject of Pointing Fingers...

Via Reuters:

"This was a screw up that could have been disastrous," the president said during a meeting in the White House situation room, according to the White House media office. "We dodged a bullet but just barely. It was averted by brave individuals not because the system worked and that is not acceptable. While there will be a tendency for finger pointing, I will not tolerate it."

Well, isn't that special? No "finger pointing"? Isn't that what he's been doing himself for the last year?

As others have pointed out, when Obama says this sort of nonsense, he really wants no finger pointing at him or his administration for this "screw up."

This time around, the admin. is going to have a hard time blaming Bush (although they probably will try).

He's been pointing that thing all over the place. Be nice if he'd look down the barrel of his own 'finger'.

Once again Obama fails to look at his own failings in doing what is in the best interest of this nation. But what else is new. Isn't it always someone else's fault with this guy.
I saw a cartoon with Obama having a sign on his desk that reads, "The Buck Stops There" and an arrow pointing towards someone else.
How appropriate.
But what Obama has done to this nation's ability to gather crucial intelligence information is equivalent to someone neutering your prize bull and expecting him to produce calves.
