Barry’s Got the Nuke Codes, But No Security Clearance!
By Joy Tiz
Is it possible that as brilliant as our Founding Fathers were, perchance they gave us a little too much credit? Notwithstanding their sagacity, the Founders likely never envisaged a scenario in which the American people would elect a Commander in Chief who is a national security risk.
Numerous government positions require some level of security screening, as do sensitive jobs in the private sector involving certain types of government contracts. The job of President of the United States, regrettably, does not require any level of security clearance.
The process of applying for a national security clearance starts with the Questionnaire for National Security Purposes. Even a cursory review of the application shows there are a few sections that could have been troublesome for Barack Hussein Obama Soetoro Obama.
The process is explained:
“Background investigations for national security positions are conducted to gather information to show whether you are reliable, trustworthy, of good conduct and character, and loyal to the U.S. The information that you provide on this form may be confirmed during the investigation.
The investigation may extend beyond the time covered by this form when necessary to resolve issues. Your current employer may be contacted as part of the investigation, even if you have previously indicated on applications or other forms that you do not want your current employer to be contacted.”
Note the requirement of loyalty to the US. Obama’s recent canoodling with anti- American tyrants would merit further investigation if he were applying for a security clearance.
Barack Obama would benefit from the magnanimous seven year limit on requests for information about illegal drug use. A bullet dodged, if Obama were required to have a basic national security clearance.
A private in the military could be required to be cleared if assigned a position which gives access to classified information. Access to the nuke codes will be gleefully granted without preconditions.
Section 16: People Who Know You Well. Should provide interesting reading. In my research for Obamanutz: A Cult Leader Takes the White House, I came to the inescapable conclusion that Barack Obama does not know a single normal person.
If he were a truthful man, he would have to list Jeremiah Wright, Tony Rezko and Bill Ayers among those who know him best. That ought to generate some further probing.
The process would be streamlined by the large volume of information about many Barack associates already in the possession of various law enforcement agencies.
Section 9: Citizenship. This could also be a bit of a sticky wicket. At last, Obama would have to produce that birth certificate he claims to have but has invested nearly a million dollars in keeping secret. We can assume that he currently holds a US passport, but take a look at Section 10.
While Barry may well have been born in Hawaii, his father was not a US citizen, nor was his stepfather. Barry went to live in Indonesia at the age of six and was enrolled in a Muslim school by his stepfather. A truthful applicant would certainly provide detailed information about his years in Jakarta.
While we’re at it, could the reviewer be interested in Barry’s travels to Pakistan in the early 1980’s? The nation was under martial law at the time and United States citizens were not permitted to enter. We know Barry took one trip, possibly more.
More cynical types of reviewers would probably want to find out a little more about those trips. All of the other kids went to Daytona that year for spring break.
Section 19: Foreign Contacts.
This could be vexatious if the Commander in Chief were required to apply for a security clearance. A vigilant examiner may want to probe Obama’s relationship with the murderous Raila Odinga of Kenya, a fomenter of radical Islam and yet another Friend of Barry about whom questions could be asked.
The security questionnaire takes another whack at the passport issue in Section 20B, 6. Have you EVER held or do you now hold a passport that was issued by a foreign government?
Personally, I’d like to know this about any potential Commander in Chief.
Section 29: Association Record. Another potential snare, if Barack Obama had been required to obtain a security clearance. Note, there is extra space provided if needed.
Have you ever been an officer, member or made a contribution to an organization dedicated to terrorism? Another germane question! We know about Obama’s ties to Jeremiah Wright, who gave an award to Louis Farrakhan, a creature Wright characterizes as the “epitome of greatness”.
The Nation of Islam makes no secret of its wish to destroy white society and has no discomfort with using violence. Obama’s relationship to Farrakhan and the Nation of Islam certainly would have to be explored by any halfway competent examiner, if the president were required to obtain a security clearance.
Barack Obama’s friendship with Rashid Khalidi could prove inconvenient as well. Former Arafat spokesman, Khalidi, uses his post in academia to champion Islamic extremism and anti-Semitism while raking in funding from the UAE.
Obama has made grants via Bill Ayers’ Woods Fund to Khalidi’s Arab American Action Network. Another relationship probably worthy of scrutiny before granting the applicant access to sensitive government data.
Section b. asks about associations with organizations dedicated to overthrowing the US government. Surely, Obama would acknowledge his membership in the socialist organization, Chicago’s New Party.
Support for Obama from the New Party required his membership and it was made abundantly clear that there would be zero tolerance for an in name only type of membership. In the interest of veracity, Obama couldn’t disregard his former mentor, Alice Palmer an unashamed supporter of the Soviet Union and member of the US Peace Council, identified by the FBI as a notorious Communist front group.
Even the most somnambulant bureaucrat would raise a red flag and feel compelled to dig a little deeper.
A personal interview may be required of the applicant, providing an opportunity to explain information on the form more completely. It’s a safe wager that Obama’s application would earn him a personal interview.
That is, if the Commander in Chief of the most powerful military in the world were required to obtain a national security clearance.
