“We Tear-Gassed Some Folks" - Obama Makes Statement On Ferguson, Iraq

Tyler Durden's picture


While we are sure President Obama will comment on the apparent US intelligence failure that Chuck Hagel explained last night - there were far fewer 'refugees' on Mt.Sinjar than expected... but Iraq is still a troubled nation; we suspect the calmer-in-chief will address the situation in Ferguson. Having already disappointed many African American residents of Ferguson, who rejected his previous comments as "insultingly inadequate," it seems the President will take a few minutes out of his day to address the turmoil in middle America... 'we tear-gassed some folks...'


President Obama is due to speak at 1215ET - plan accordingly...

Obama says "there is never an excuse for violence against police".  The Supreme Court begs to differ.


I thought Obama was a Constitutional scholar?

More misdirection. Everything that is discussed that is NOT about our southern border, western Africa or (possibly) Japan is a "win". This is ALL about buying a little more time.

Igore this:

Minister of Information, Labaran Maku, on Wednesday disclosed that about 198 cases of Ebola virus infections have been recorded in [Nigeria].

Out of these, he said, 177 are said to be in Lagos, while the remaining 21 are in Enugu.

Source: http://dailypost.ng/2014/08/14/nigeria-confirms-198-cases-ebola-lagos-en...

Besides, if anyone really wanted calm in Ferguson the military, er police, would pack up and leave. It's really that simple. Oh, and allow free exercise of R2KBA. Self correcting in hours.

I am as alarmed as anyone about Ebola, but that is the number of people in quarantine as a result of contact tracing, not the number of infections.

My bad. Several paragraphs down it makes clear these are observations, not cases. I read the opening "198 cases of Ebola virus infections have been recorded" and didn't realize these were not confirmed cases.

My apologies for being alarmist.

This is a reference to the POTUS acknowledging that the CIA illegally tortured prisoners in the wake of 9/11.


"In the immediate aftermath of 9/11, we did some things that were wrong. We did a whole lot of things that were right, but we tortured some folks. We did things that were contrary to our values."
