Obama Administration Scrubs State Department Memo Denying Threat of 9/11 Terrorism From Internet

From @benk84.

OSAC currently has no credible information to suggest that Al Qa'ida or any other terrorist group is plotting any kind of attack overseas to coincide with the upcoming anniversary of September 11. However, constituents often have concerns around important dates, holidays, and major events. Often times, these concerns are the result of increased media attention to the issue, rather than credible evidence of a terrorist plot.

I bolded the last part just to knock down the liberals' inevitable spin about "concerns" about dates being some kind of sober warning. The bolded sentence immediately dismisses "concerns" as arising chiefly from increased media attention -- that is, paranoia.

This was on the State Department's website. Now it's gone.

I don't know what you'd call this psychology, but there is something that could be called the Dishonest Retroactive Perfectionist. A psychology where the subject defines himself as "perfect," and will not accept anything less than perfection from himself. Now, when numerous proofs of imperfection arise, the subject simply lies about the past in order to "delete" them from reality. Thus, in his own mind, maintaining "perfection." And looking a bit of a lunatic to anyone else.

It hardly needs be said that most people with this condition are not even close to perfect, and their "perfection" is a debilitating delusion. One could guess that the more certain one is of one's "perfection," the more likely one is to be utterly incompetent.*

Which then requires an awful lot of revising of the past.

Meanwhile, not that the media or US Government should be interested, but these threatening "protests"/nascent riots are still going on at many of our embassies.

The media doesn't run footage of these, or play them as if they are still going on.

Why is that, I don't really wonder.

* I had a rule about American Idol which was always right -- if the auditioner was good at anything else, be it archery or piano or whatever, he'd be a good singer.

Why? Because if you're good at one thing you've learned the habit of self-criticism and self-improvement. If you've become a champion archer, you will know whether or not you're a good singer, for the same reasons you know you're a good archer, and will not embarrass yourself on stage (if you've decided to go on American Idol in the first place).

Which leads to the question: Did Barack Obama ever actually get good at anything?

Or is he just another self-deluded fool embarrassing himself in front of an audience of millions?

What Barack Obama is chiefly skilled at is convincing himself he is skilled, in the face of all evidence to the contrary.
