Hateful Right-Wing Columnist Claims ‘Obama’s Incompetence’ Will Lead To Another 9/11 Attack



In his Sunday column for the Washington Times, Joseph Curl claimed that President Obama has shown his true incompetence when it comes to foreign policy and it is going to lead to another large-scale terrorist attack this coming September 11th. Curl, who is also an editor for the right-wing rag Drudge Report, fearmongered throughout the piece and came to the conclusion that President Obama is just like Homer Simpson and that we will be lucky if he doesn’t get all of us killed. Overall, this was a despicable piece of tripe presented as a serious opinion column, which is kind of the Washington Times’ specialty.

As has been the case this past month among right-wing media, Curl hammered the President for taking a vacation in August and playing golf. This is something Curl has repeated ad nauseam in his most recent columns. In a previous column, he lambasted the President for taking a vacation and listed off all of the things Obama missed while at Martha’s Vineyard. Prior to that, he claimed the only thing President Obama has achieved is outgolfing Tiger Woods. Curl decided to dip into that drying well one more time to throw some more shade at Obama.

Curl suggests that the President is completely disengaged from what is going on in the world, especially in the Middle East. He feels that Obama doesn’t care and is not listening to warnings from other leaders about potential terrorist threats approaching Europe and America. Curl also claims that beyond POTUS “checking out,’ the President’s philosophy is that terrorism basically doesn’t exist anymore. Essentially, President Obama isn’t worried about the world’s problems because he doesn’t think they are that important and he can simply ignore most of them. Presumably, per Curl, to play more golf.

Obviously, Curl suffers from Obama Derangement Syndrome. That much is obvious. However, the lengths he goes to peddle fear, ignorance and hatred in his latest column is appalling. He bounces between misrepresentation to flat-out lying throughout the piece. For instance, he takes the President to task for not following through on his ‘red line’ with Syria regarding the use of chemical weapons.

But that’s the opposite of what Mr. Obama has done ever since he issued his impotent “red line” threat. He warned that Syrian President Bashar Assad’s use of chemical weapons would “cross a red line for us” and prompt “enormous consequences.”

That was two years ago. Mr. Assad used chemical weapons, and Mr. Obama did nothing. The president later said he’s not to blame: “I didn’t set a red line; the world set a red line.”

But as Mr. Obama dithered and deflected blame, the terrorist group that morphed into the Islamic State consolidated power in parts of Syria, swept into Iraq and slaughtered thousands.


Of course, Curl made sure to omit the fact that once proof was shown that Assad and Syria had used chemical weapons on citizens, Obama was the one who called for immediate military action against Syria. However, the United States was going to be forced to go alone as the British Parliament rejected Prime Minster David Cameron’s request for authorization to move in on Syria. The President faced fierce opposition from the American public regarding the use of military force, which translated into a lack of will from Congress to give him authorization. In the end, a diplomatic solution was found to rid Syria of chemical weapons.

The thing is, we can debate the pros and cons of getting involved in a three-sided civil war in Syria all day long. However, my feeling is that Curl doesn’t really care about any of this. If Obama would have engaged in military action in Syria and put more troops on the ground in Iraq, Curl would have found a reason to criticize the President. The main objective of outlets like the Washington Times and Drudge  Report is just to trash liberals, Democrats and progressives while propping up conservatives and disseminating the latest talking points. It doesn’t matter if the narrative of the day contradicts something that was being said a few weeks ago. It is all about pushing the message and energizing the base.

In this instance, the message is that we are on the precipice of a full-scale war with terrorists and our very lives are in danger. And, despite this, the President either doesn’t care or is too incompetent to do anything about it. The job of the conservative entertainment complex is to push that message with as much hyperbole as possible. Therefore, you get a column like Curl’s where he is essentially saying that another 9/11 is imminent.

  1. It would not bother me one iota if the buildings that house Drudge, Faux Noise, Washington Times were ‘surgically’ altered, leaving all innocents unscathed.

  2. Hm. I didn’t notice ‘feckless’ in his article. I thought that was the word of the month with the GOP? Oh, wait, it’s now September. “Incompetent” must be the new word…see how many times McCain uses it next Sunday on his trip through the TV studios. (and here you thought all those good GOP Christians went to church on Sunday? How incompetently feckless are you?)

  3. By writing such garbage, he threw his Republican Boyfriend, Mr Bush under the bus. The depth of this mans asinine comments underwhelms me. He’s a racist; plain and simple and the pundits who own that paper allow this kind of trash to write such nonsense? So Mr Curl, you admit that the 9/11 attacks were due to the incompetence of YOUR President, the then Mr Bush? Your such a moron and people pay you to write such drivel? I wouldn’t have you cleaning toilets at the local movie theatre. Your ineptness and stupidity are nothing new. After all, you’re a right wing, distort the facts neophyte who knows nothing other than your own white walls. Get back to reality Mr Curl. This kind of idiotic writing should be beneath you!

  4. If we get attacked, you can bet it will be because the GOP sets it up, and it wouldn’t surprise me one bit. They have been on this ‘disinterested, feckless, incompetent, unprepared, bored’ crap for years…drumming it into the teeny GOP brains. What better way to get votes than to make their wet dream come true in October 2016? They haven’t been able to make any of their ‘scandals’ into anything more than money wasters…not one. So, what’s left?

  5. The GOP is angry, because President Obama has not been a warmonger, so they can say he was like Bush. That’s all this piece of garbage is from Curl.

    They can’t stand the fact that our President is not “ready to fight” like GOPT. He is a problem solver, and a darn good one at that. He doesn’t rush in to send others’ kids to war.

  6. I’d much rather have a President that is willing to take the time it needs to solve present-day problems instead of automatically ordering a military response.

    Not every problem can be, nor should be, solved militarily.

  7. Joseph Curl must have his presidents mixed up. The incompetent President that allowed a the worst terrorist attack on American soil was NOT Barack Obama but George W Bush. Silly little wingnut. Obama was the one who send the Navy Seals to take out that mastermind of that attack. Something that Bush failed to do!

  8. Joseph Curl is a deuchebag of the worst kind. This is not the time to be beating the wardrums and trash talking the President of the United States even if he is of another party. The enemy is listening to these warmongers get a hissyfit over when and how to hit back. But Obama, is planning (behind closed doors)for something BIG. And ISIS know that something is up. No news is BAD news, because they don’t know what is going to hit them, when and where. So let all the hysterical fools rant and rave, holler stamp their feet and ask the President to recklessly do something, just because they feel we must RIGHT NOW. Why telegraph your moves to the bastards and have them prepare. Surprise is the key. The bombings right now are keeping them off guard and nervous. Psychological warfare. Theirs is to frighten …seems to work with the neo-cons who are soiling their pants and want big brother to throw a punch immediately.

  9. Obama Doctrine:

    “Just Because We Have the Best Hammer Does Not Mean That Every Problem Is a Nail”

    Our President is more than competent.
    That’s just another reason they HATE
    him so very much.
    The fact that we have not had another
    9/11 style attack on his watch infuriates
    Bill Clinton & now Barack Obama have shown America what complete FAILURES
    the Republican Presidents have been.
    Americans HAVE learned from history.
    We will not repeat it!
    We will Register to VOTE!
    We will get in line.
    We will stay in line.
    We will #VOTE!


  10. Blame ,blame blame predict terrible things and if something happens see its his fault ; every thing is obamas fault ; any time any thing happens any where in the world its his fault; they propagandize this and wear even normal people down with their incessant bs; if we are attacked again its on our press and the propagandists because the terrorist think they can destroy us by dividing us and the ignorant hateful racist are sending that message loud and clear.

  11. “Obama Derangement Syndrome”
    -Delirious Hysterical Emotional Verbal Reaction due to Inability to Comprehend; Person, Place or Thing that requires Inclusive Diplomacy of Nations, Races, Beliefs, Genders with some level Cognitive Process to Create Order Out of Chaos.
    Conservative Republicans judgmental world of chaos is their OWN SELF PROJECTION OF INCOMPETANCE reacting to President Obama’s Calm Orderly Cognitive Diplomacy Creating NATO for nations to react to any global terrorist(s) that effect any of its members…
    Recent cases- Vietnam and Iraq?!?

  12. Please go back and check your sources. You consistently misspell the guy’s name. It’s not Joseph Curl. It’s Joseph Churl. Leaving out the “h” makes all the difference.

  13. Hey, check your facts. Benghazi was the most deadly terrorist attack on American soil. If you can’t dig up that little factoid it’s because the liberal media is hiding it. They hide everything I can’t substantiate.

  14. Really? I guess the embassy bombings in Tanzania don’t count. How about the USS Cole? And the mother of all terrorist attacks the World Trade center and the Pentagon.

  15. I have one question how is the American military going to return to combat with a down graded military. Most of the veterans with combat experience have been kicked out and replaced with no one.

  16. People dont get kicked out of the military unless they deserve it. However after 3-5 deployments, most leave on their own.

    As for your silly claim replaced by no one, we have a volunteer military. Get cracking sparky
