Secret Report Ordered by Obama Identified Potential Uprisings
NYT ^ | 2/16/11 | Mark Landler

WASHINGTON — President Obama ordered his advisers last August to produce a secret report on unrest in the Arab world, which concluded that without sweeping political changes, countries from Bahrain to Yemen were ripe for popular revolt, administration officials said Wednesday.

Mr. Obama’s order, known as a Presidential Study Directive, identified likely flashpoints, most notably Egypt, and solicited proposals for how the administration could push for political change in countries with autocratic rulers who are also valuable allies of the United States, these officials said.

I also see it clear.

He is a major proponent of a Islamic Caliphate.

Obama is merely looking to what side will harm the USA.

He is a muslim and hates white people and Christians.

While the report is guiding the administration’s response to events in the Arab world, it has not yet been formally submitted — and given the pace of events in the region, an official said, it is still a work in progress.

...especially since they started working on it this Monday. (snark)

This sounds very much like "find out which countries are our allies and develop comprehensive strategies to undermine the governments of every single one of them."

This, in turn, sounds like something that someone who was drawing a paycheck from the Muslim Brotherhood, Hamas, or the government of Iran might do.

I do not believe one damn word of that report. The president clearly had no idea on what had happened, why it happened or what to do. This release of this supposed report is simply an effort to make people think he was involved and aware. He is not.

Administration officials did not say how the report related to intelligence analysis of the Middle East, which the director of the Central Intelligence Agency, Leon E. Panetta, acknowledged in testimony before Congress, needed to better identify “triggers” for uprisings in countries like Egypt.

Obama was the trigger!

Funny - I see no reporters being raped in Israel. No masses on the street, except at election time. No shortages of food, no frenzied mobs, no chants of “kill the Arab,” and no army killings of civilians.

Everyone is forgetting about the only real free society in the Mid-East - Israel.

So are they trying to tell us he knew along this was going to happen and we need to be prepared? He foresaw all of this. This folks think we are stupid.

I think you nailed it. This “report” shows up in the NY Times from anonymous administration officials and just happens to summarize whats already happening. At the end they admit the “report” is still a work in progress. This is one of the most transparent lies Obama’s administration has told lately. It would be funny if they weren’t such dangerous lying fascists.

I guess not; he missed the uprisings in NJ and Massachusetts.

I have no Hooters, no Beer, and all of the women are covered from head to toe.

I have no money, job, or food.

I am also low IQ.

Hussein Obama promised us prosperity if we get rid of the JEW coddler Mubarak.

Death to America!

Death to Israel!

Long Live Barak Hussein Obama !!!!

I could be wrong here, but it's possible that the muslim subhumans that the POTUS went to Cairo to encourage to overthrow a US ally were outraged, just like he fomented the overthrow of the Kenyan Government in 2006.
