Has Barack Obama made an enemy who can sabotage his presidency?

The presidency of George W. Bush began to unravel when some in high positions at the Central Intelligence Agency began waging a covert campaign against him.

blah, blah, blah...

The CIA's war against President Bush was motivated by ass covering, or by political partisanship. But with President Obama, it's personal.

Many are furious about his disclosure of explicit details of the interrogation methods used on some al Qaida bigwigs, and his waffling on whether or not those who employed them will be subject to prosecution.
Who really knows what's going on at the CIA? I seriously doubt Leon Panetta has a clue. Even Pelosi is getting antsy, with good reason. She can only stretch the fibs so far. Gotta love the spooks, though.

Obama suffers from two very disturbing issues:

1) Gullibility - someone told him he'd be a hero
2) Narcissism - he believes he's that hero

The CIA was here before Obama, and it will be here after Obama. Would it be asking too much for Obama to thoroughly think things through before waking up in the morning, kissing each bicep, and telling the mirror how perfect he is?

Killing CIA morale via political maneuvering is simply not acceptable.

Protecting you meaning Obama.

The acts of Obama...endangered Americans. The simple release of those memos in the manner they were released endangered Americans.

Here are some another great articles by the author of your source link....LOL

Palin for president

http://www.realclearpolitics.com/art...ngs_right.html

http://www.realclearpolitics.com/art...ear_in_de.html

Check out this sage advise from the Author

"Only once in modern times has a vice presidential candidate swung an election. Lyndon Johnson brought Texas and Alabama to John F. Kennedy in 1960, states that otherwise would have been suspicious of a Catholic liberal from New England. I think Sarah Palin will be the second. She has changed the nature of this race in ways ominous for Mr. Obama."

And you expect us to believe one word that comes out of this fools' mouth??...LOL

RealClearPolitics - The CIA's Fight With Obama

So far this has come down to the CIA telling one story and the FBI and the Office of Naval Intelligence telling a different one. The facts so far, as they appear in the memos that were released support what the FBI & ONI are saying and conflict with what the CIA has been saying-- in particular how they appear to have pushed the Bush Administration (and probably other government officials) to employ the illegal methods.

Even though Obama promised them immunity from prosecution when he released the memos, if the investigations show they were a lone rogue element of government (as FBI & ONI) say, and the criminal activity began with them-- and not with the White House and the Attorney General as they claim-- there will be hell to pay and heads will be rolling all over the place at Langley. Once again the CIA will have been caught illegally meddling with the function of the US Government. The fact they're squawking now as loud as they are shows they feel the heat on their personal careers. Too bad. They should know better by now.

On the other point I think time will show that the public in general cares nowhere near as much as the Neocon Rightists about what happens to Nancy Peolosi. She has no power to guide or prevent whatever the outcome will be on this, and that's just people lip-synching to the broadcasters who like to masquerade as political analysts (because people let them).
