Commentary On Bill O Reilly's "President Obama Gets Blowback From The Intelligence Community"

Bill O Reilly takes his lies to new incredible levels;
How would Bill know this? Informants? Reminds me of this...

Glenn Beck: Agrees with the CIA That 'Osama Bin Laden Needs To Attack America For Our Unity'
At 1:13 the CIA analyst Micheal Scheuer "The only chance we have as a country right now is for Osama Bin Laden to deploy & detonate a major weapon in the United States. Only Osama {he says with a laugh & smile} can execute an attack which will force Americans to demand thier Government protect them effectively, consistently and with as much violence as necessary."
President Obama is, by definition, President. What you are asking him to do is absurd. It's not the President's job to do intelligence research, that's the responsibility of the intelligence chiefs. It's the Presidents responsibility to ACT on the information given to him by Intelligence. I guess Bush & Cheney are not the only ones who get this backwards...

Me Ain't Culpa- The Clinton administration left the Bush administration with only a series of actionable items listed together on a piece of paper, not a plan. (8:11)
 {This is what the whole 'Clinton should have got Bin Laden' episode was about, Bush's "incompetence"}:
i.e. The intelligence community head Clapper acknowledged that they Underestimated ISIS.

Quite the opposite of what happened under the Bush Administration, so I don't understand what all the fuss is about.

Daily Show: Dick Cheney doesn't recall Richard Clarke warning the White House of an imminent terrorist attack months before 9/11:
I think Bill may be mistaking War for Oil with some "War On Terror" that he imagined?

Dick Cheney has so many secrets that not even Dick knows Dick, as the 1994 Dick Cheney can attest

Did you know that there are two different Taliban groups? (but is often reported on as one group)

A Pakistani Journalist responds to some of the questions 
Many think, after 9/11, Al Qaeda went to the tribal areas [of Pakistan]. What you know about that?Definitely they did. Definitely. The whole of Al Qaeda's moved into Pakistan. First they moved into the tribal areas. Pretty much they are there -- even today they are there. There is pretty strong evidence available to suggest that some of the Arabs who speak local native language, the Pashto, that wear native dresses, they look like native people. They are the guest of tribal people in South Waziristan and North Waziristan. I've been meeting people who know it for sure in their own areas -- there are Arabs living there as guests of some tribal people.

I would think that some people in the government may also know, have some ideas. But as long as these people are not creating trouble and they are just sitting quiet, the government are not ready to confront them. They don't want to create a problem for themselves.

What is it about the tribal areas? I mean, people watching this program don't know what these tribal areas are or what they represent. What is it about these places that makes them such a good hiding place for Al Qaeda?

They are often categorized as semi-autonomous areas. But for all practical purpose, before 9/11, they were autonomous areas. There was no law there. The law was gun and drugs. These people trade in gun and guns only. There was no other thing. Maybe smuggling. So it was a lawless terrain, completely out of Pakistan's control.

These people don't accept any laws. They didn't even accept the Durand Line, the border between Pakistan and Afghanistan. They never had any travel documents to go into Afghanistan or coming back from there. So there are tremendous linkages there. These people have no law, no Pakistani law government.

And they're in the same tribe as the Taliban?

Yes, in most cases. There are different types, but they share the area. They share the terrain. They share the culture, and they all share a very deep, religious leanings. They consider themselves ultra-religious people. Yes, the rest would like to call them the sheer fundamentalists.
Context of second extract is of growing terror/hate groups. There are many terror hate groups in the region since Bush created the vacuum needed for them to flourish (there was no Al Qaeda or it's affiliates in Iraq OR Syria before the Iraq Invasion).

Dick Cheney explains why invading Iraq was a bad idea and how they could lead to an increase in terror/hate groups by creating a vacuum of power (he calls it a "quagmire");

At 3:20 On finding Bin Laden In Pakistan

Mike Mullen who knew the guy in charge has this to say:

Q Where they (Pakistanis) Chagrined at all (that Osama Bin Laden was found there)?

A. No they were actually surprised. I mean, literally. Now, this is in the human dimension. I know this doesn't make allot of sense but I knew him pretty well, and his reaction was one(1) that we'd found him and two(2), that he was where we found him, which was about a mile from their version of West Point. And he had the worst week of his life.
Explanation: 1. Most of the people in that part of the world, especially the Pakistanis, think that Osama Bin Laden was killed by 2003. It's a good thing we killed him and have proof of his body or this rumor might just persist.

2. As for finding him next to a military school... it's a school. They don't do random house to house searches and Pakistan has no version of the NSA. They still do most of their governmental work on paper for that matter. But that he was right in the middle of a military town was a surprise, and probably smart tactics on Bin Laden's part i.e. go where you're enemy will least expect you to be found (art of war). Also, you should keep in mind that Al Qaeda has killed allot of Pakistanis, so they are a primary enemy.

So General Mike Mullen's views on Pakistan and the facts don't add up to make Bill's opinions believable.
