On one day President Obama, while talking about the CIA states there is, "systemic failures" in the agency. Lets break out a dictionary please, just to keep things in context. SYSTEMIC: Systemic means affecting the whole of something. FAILURES: Failure is a lack of success in doing or achieving something. In other words, the CIA is not good for anything, a waste, COMPLETELY USELESS. Because nothing that is wholly unsuccessful, a systemic failure.
On the next day, only a single day past the systemic failure speech, President Obama apologizes for the preposterously unprofessional systemic failure remark? NOPE. What happens is he acts like nothing happened, as he is preaching to a separate choir. Tell one set of people one thing, the next set another. Hope no one catches on to your uneducated remark. This days speech was about the eight CIA agents getting killed in combat. The eight systemic failures who was fighting for our freedom. The systemic failures that have been keeping us safe for year past, present, and if President Obama would see fit to allow, the future. Obama "lauded the victims as ‘part of a long line of patriots who have made great sacrifices for their fellow citizens and for our way of life'". So now these guys are being called hero's? Kind-of looks like it. "In a statement, he said the CIA had been ‘tested as never before’ and that agents had ‘served on the front lines in directly confronting the dangers of the 21st century.'"
Make your own judgments in this case, but just remember, the CIA was highly offended by our Presidents remarks. ‘One day the President is pointing the finger and blaming the intelligence services, saying there is a systemic failure,’ said one agency official. ‘Now we are heroes. The fact is that we are doing everything humanly possible to stay on top of the security situation. The deaths of our operatives shows just how involved we are on the ground.'"
NO statement should have been said using the words systemic failure. Almost nothing is a systemic failure, so at the very least there is extremely poor word selection. But really, I myself would like to complement the CIA for there work! Thanks for my freedom, and there volunteering to lose their lives for me and my country. I can never repay or even price the sacrifice made. CIA, you are NOT a systemic failure, no matter what others will say. Great job, great job. My grandfather was a OSS/CIA agent, I know he would have been pissed to high heaven hearing this Presidential remark.
