Guess who is back and using an incident in the area to denigrate Obama?????
Of,course , Gary, does not even bother to read his own story:
"An FBI spokesman, without going into details, tells the Journal that the agency does not believe a terrorist organization was responsible."

Of course, Gary should note that Obama said nothing about Osama bin laden, but nailed him anyway. [Portion removed.]

Editor-- I guess "Gary" is allowed to denigrate Obama with comments about empty suits and leading from behind, but responding to them leads to auotomatic censorship.
How about some common sense when censoring comments?

"The Journal quotes Jon Wellinghoff — chairman of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission at the time of the attack — as saying it was "the most significant incident of domestic terrorism involving the grid that has ever occurred" in the U.S."

Yet the Obama administration said not a word about it. Doesn't fit the narrative that we are not under attack. This story finally made it to NPR, a few days ago...it is a very serious issue.

Obama did not say a word about he hunt for Osama. Do you think that the Obama administration needs to inform Gary of how they are carrying out the hunt for terrorists ( if this was terrorism).
This was in the WSJ weeks ago. Why the delay in posting your comments, Gary?
Anyone given any thought that this could have been the work on environmental zealots? They have carried other outrageous attacks in the past.

This terrorist attack on our grid was the work of terrorist experts, with specific knowledge. They knew what they were doing. It shows us how vulnerable we are.

The Obama administration would prefer that we did not know about it, but the WSJ got a leak, and it leaked...took a long time for NPR to buy in, no surprise. It is real, and it is very serious. One can only imagine how bad it could get, if the terrorists expand their efforts. This is not something that some drone program can bomb, it will take some serious, old-fashioned interrogation, and commitment, before it becomes a national level thing.

Leading from behind will not do it. We need aggressive leadership from the front.

"This terrorist attack on our grid was the work of terrorist experts, with specific knowledge. They knew what they were doing. It shows us how vulnerable we are. "
Where does your information come from? You seem to be very knowledgable about the attack. Perhaps the FBI should speak with you. Specific knowledge of what? Why just use bullets which do minimal damage instead of a bomb, if these people were " experts"?

The Obama administration would prefer that we did not know about it, but the WSJ got a leak, and it leaked...took a long time for NPR to buy in, no surprise. It is real, and it is very serious."
Of course if it involves Obama then he is in the wrong.

"One can only imagine how bad it could get, if the terrorists expand their efforts. This is not something that some drone program can bomb, it will take some serious, old-fashioned interrogation, and commitment, before it becomes a national level thing. "
I am sure Obama will be calling you shortly to let you know how all efforts against terrorists worldwide is being handled.

"Leading from behind will not do it. We need aggressive leadership from the front."
Where have I heard this before. Remember who got Osama, Gary? Are you upset you were not kept in the loop?
