Obama's Lies About a Weakened al Qaeda "Complicated" by Facts says .... NY Times
When you've lost the Times, you've lost the narrative. I think Chomsky said something like that once. And you know what? On the rare occasion, Chomsky was right.
Now the Times doesn't come right out and say that Obama has been lying about al Qaeda being on the run. No, they say the facts have "complicated the narrative" being pushed by Obama.
Which is as close as the partisans at the NY Times will ever come to calling The One a liar:
The new signs of an energized but fragmented jihadist threat, stretching from Mali and Libya in the west to Yemen in the east, have complicated the narrative of a weakened Al Qaeda that President Obama offered in May in a landmark speech heralding the end of the war on terrorism. The leaders of the Senate and House intelligence committees, Senator Dianne Feinstein of California and Representative Mike Rogers of Michigan, raised warnings in an interview on CNN on Sunday when they said that Americans were “not safer” from terrorist attacks than they were in 2011.Not only are we "not safer" --- which could be read as "not unsafer, either" -- we are, in fact ... less safe today than we were four years ago.
It's not just the President Obama has taken his eye off the ball. He seems to think the game is over. Unfortunately the fat lady isn't singing. Instead, she's decided to blow the stadium up.
