Obama Administration Supports Hamas Rebuilding, While Shorting Anti-Terrorism Funding in Pakistan

We're still fighting a war against radical Islamic terrorism, and it already appears that our inept President has forgotten which side he's supposed to be on.

The Department of Defense's Security Development Plan for the Federally Administered Tribal Areas of Pakistan, like the administration's $900 million Gaza aid plan, is directed at the heart of a terrorist haven. But the DoD initiative is directed at curtailing and/or cutting off terrorists from narcotics funding and undermining their stranglehold on and, to the degree that it exists, popular support of the local populations there. An alternative.

The Administration's Gaza reconstruction gift contains none of these counterterrorism dynamics. Not a one. There is but one ultimate distributor in Gaza: Hamas. The Obama administration can claim that "the aid would not go to Hamas but that it would be funneled through nongovernmental organizations," but the fact of the matter remains that the Hamas terrorist organization that dominates Gaza stands to gain from every penny. It most certainly will not be hindered. That equation is nowhere in the calculus.

Sheesh. Here I've been worrying about the economy... he's gonna get us all killed, so I guess it doesn't matter how low the stock market drops.

I wonder how much burkhas cost?

I am happy you qualified your statement with "Supposed to be on."

This guy and his cabinet is, and will continue to, throwing over all allies in his effort to cow tow our enemies. I would have said Muslims but their are in fact some Muslims who do not aspire to the subdjugation of all other religions. Muslims does not cover the love of Russia and Venezuala.

Obama knows very well whose side he's on, and it's been showing since before he got elected.

And that side is NOT the side of those who fight Islamic jihadism (or any terrorism against freedom, capitalism, and the American Way).

God forbid we help the victims of Israeli state terrorism instead of subsidizing Israel's white phosphorus and cluster bomb stockpiles.

The Palis are "victims" of their own stubbornness and stupidity.

"white phosphorus and cluster bomb stockpiles"

I'm familiar with this lie. For the record, Ricin and Sarin are WMDs, WP and Cluster bombs are conventional. Not the other way around.

It's like these people are on autopilot. They don't even think about the objective truth of what they're saying, or how it relates to the post.

They just yell WP as though it's some shield against careful thought.

As for the substance of this post, I agree. I don't think that funding Hamas will help Palis, Isralis, or the US. Tax payer money to fund jihad! Wheeee!

Has forgotten? That assumes he knew.

"our inept President has forgotten which side he's supposed to be on."

He has known which side he is on all along. We must all remember that he isn't always on OUR side. This just reveals how he isn't going to put the USA first if it interferes with HIS plans. We know what some of those plans are. Wait until he teams up the the UN and I think we will see what his REAL PLANS are.

Obama's past that the MSM ignored and continues to ignore tells us exactly what side he is on. It is now beginning to peep through the Democrat propaganda machine fed to the uneducated voter through the media during the election and now every day since the moment he was sworn in.

Hamas endorsed him yet he received most of the Jewish vote in America. Now they are surprised?

Even if the aid did not go through the thoroughly corrupted UN organizations and went directly to the people of Gaza (the same ones who willingly allowed Hamass terrorists to use their homes for missile shelters and bomb factories), Hamass would have a list of the people receiving the monies and would send its terrorists to each of those homes for a cut of the money received like Mafiosos.
There is no way to keep the monies out of Hamass' hands and the Administration has to believe we are too stupid or gullible to know that. This is a billion dollar gift to a genocidal organization (indeed, since dollars are fungible) every dollar Hamass doesn't have to spend to repair the damage it caused its constituents is a dollar it can spend building rockets and attacking Israelis. This must be that fabled intelligence and soft power that we marvelled at during the democrap campaign.
