    This administration has gone out of its way to tone down relations with allies, particularly Britain. Seems there is a sign they are returning the favor:

    Ya, you know BEFORE he was issued a Visa to travel unhindered to the United States. OR if not WAY long enough ago so that the proper procedures would have discovered he had such a VISA and revoke it.

    And claming Bush did it won't work because they had over a YEAR to find out he had such a Visa. A year to put him on the proper watch list, a year to discover he had an unrestricted tourist visa, a YEAR to revoke said VISA, A YEAR to ensure his name was on the list so when he SHOWED up to buy his ticket, visa or not, he would have been FLAGGED.

    This is why:
    Don't lie about our best allies, Mr. President.





    Random thought: Wonder why Obama didn't bow to the Queen, too?

    He entered the US, when? That's when the info was actionable.

    This story is pretty sketchy...but at the bottom of it, it is clear that both Americans and Brits screwed up.

    I'm not sure why exactly Obama gets the blame for this since he doesn't micromanage immigration matters...but I'm quite sure AQ thanks you all for your gleeful hatred of Obama.

    You missed the point, it's not I that feels glee at his incompetence, rather one of our allies.
