Obama legacy: Terrorists seize 88 pounds of uranium in Iraq!

Foreign policy? The only ball our President actually keeps his eye on is a golf ball!
Besides playing politics, fundraising, scandalizing, misleading and outright lying to the American people, creating a more dangerous world is what Barack Obama does best!

The following story from Reuters represents only one of the horrendous although predictable outcomes of the Obama administrations failed foreign policy.

The problem with this one, however, is that it could result in a dirty bomb(s) detonated somewhere in the United States.

This crisis also clearly shows why a president needs to focus on issues other than raising money, playing politics and golf!

(Reuters) - Insurgents in Iraq have seized nuclear materials used for scientific research at a university in the country's north, Iraq told the United Nations in a letter appealing for help to "stave off the threat of their use by terrorists in Iraq or abroad."

Nearly 40 kilograms (88 pounds) of uranium compounds were kept at Mosul University, Iraq's U.N. Ambassador Mohamed Ali Alhakim told U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon in the July 8 letter obtained by Reuters on Wednesday.

"Terrorist groups have seized control of nuclear material at the sites that came out of the control of the state," Alhakim wrote, adding that such materials "can be used in manufacturing weapons of mass destruction."

"These nuclear materials, despite the limited amounts mentioned, can enable terrorist groups, with the availability of the required expertise, to use it separate or in combination with other materials in its terrorist acts," said Alhakim.

He warned that they could also be smuggled out of Iraq... (Source)
