And the world becomes safer! /sarcasm.

Hamas is not a terror organization? This is the world Obama lives in. Obama is going to get innocent people killed. He does not get the threat the free world faces.

US Terror Blacklist Whitewashes Hamas, Enables Funding - Defense/Middle East - Israel News - Israel National News

If Obama was a closet muslim, a secret Islamofascist sympathizer, what would Obama be doing any different?

And for all the Jews who voted for Obama, I hope you are having second thoughts.

What does Obama have to do with the watch list? Why would the EU depend on a list from the US? Who is Avi Tarango? Odd how Google shows nothing but this article. Maybe an important person nobody has heard of.

Obama has made us less safe and an easy target and the enemy know that.

His policies have weakened us beyond belief.

We need to hold him accountable for any problems in the future because of his mistakes.

Did any of the above posters minus theolarge even read the article? It says the funding comes from the EU and doesn't mention Obama once. These people are so quick to rip Obama, it's disturbingly dangerous.

I begin a notion that posters who start threads purposely to mislead with titles and articles like this should receive warnings and if it persists, a ban.

It's Obama's administration, is it not?
Quote:
Ultimately, the responsibility for oversight of the treasury department falls on both the president and Congress. Since the president appoints the position, oversight comes directly from the White House.
Quote:
The secretary of the treasury is responsible for directing the actions of the department. This position is an executive office appointed by the president with approval from the Senate.
That would be one Timothy Geithner, appointed by Obama himself.

I think this quote from the article sums up the OP's position on how this weakens security...
Quote:
It is an open secret that large sums of money from the EU flow into Gaza in the guise of humanitarian aid and salaries for officials, but are actually funneled into the coffers of Hamas, which controls Gaza with an iron grip. This method of transferring funds into terrorists' hands could have been blocked by an international lawsuit, but according to journalist Avi Tarango, the United States Treasury has made this impossible by removing all but one Hamas man

The European Union is not Obama's administration, nor does it have anything to do with it.

Once again, the Republicans are grasping at straws.
