Cramming for the Exam

     After partying for a good part of the semester, the perennial student Barack Obama decided it might be a good idea to bone up for the mid-terms so he could go off on spring break confident of attaining a passable grade.  So this:

https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/in-libya-cia-is-gathering-intelligence-on-rebels/2011/03/30/AFLyb25B_story.html?hpid=z1

“The Obama administration has sent teams of CIA operatives into Libya in a rush to gather intelligence on the identities and capabilities of rebel forces opposed to Libyan leader Moammar Gaddafi, according to U.S. officials.”

     Yes indeed, the Prez has conceded that there are known unknowns (do we miss Rumsfeld yet?) and so has sent US personnel into harm’s way to make up for his knowledge deficit.

     Once all the information has been gathered, it is expected that Obama will be able to describe to his inquisitors the exact identities (nationalities) of the …..Libyan ‘rebels’, and their capabilities (what Al Quaida training camps in Afghanistan they have successfully completed).  The examination committee, presumably comprised of David Letterman, Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert, will then be in a position to pass on Obama’s mastery of the subject and the results will be posted in all the requisite periodicals.  There is nothing to worry about because we have been assured that he is a quick study.  Of course there are the quick and then there are …….the dead.

  1. but…but…bobmontgomery, there can’t be a test. Don’t you remember what the President said? Tests make learning so bo-o-o-r-r-ing! No passing a test. No failing a test. No expectations. Remember?

  2. I wonder… wouldn’t sending in teams of operatives be considered “boots on the ground”?

    Yes, I miss Rumsfeld. The lefties hated him, but when he was given a job he did it and he played it straight.

  3. You don’t walk in look around and know the ins and outs of a situation overnight. Why didn’t we have operatives there all along? Intelligence is gathered over time, who is this guy, when did he come on the scene, whats he been pushing, what are his motives, who is he connected with… They won’t figure it out in a few days and most of what they do figure out will be wrong.
