Second 100 Days: Obama Troubled By Gitmo, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Isreal, China, His Democrat Left….

Well, the glorious first 100 days of Barack Obama’s presidency are over and now he faces a plethora of real problems including a Democrat controlled Congress.

Today, the House passed the president’s wartime spending bill — omitting funds meant to relocated terror war prisoners out of the Gitmo military installation.

House leaders also seemed to scold Obama on what they called his “dubious” military plan for Afghanistan and Pakistan and want, in one year, “a hard-nosed realistic evaluation based on the performance standards we’re talking about” to continue military support to Afghanistan and Pakistan.

Meanwhile, President Obama’s Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff expressed concern for the fighting in Pakistan and Afghanistan and said the Chinese military build-up is clearly meant to counter the U.S.

China also says it is reducing purchases of U.S. debt.

Israel is expressing concern that the Obama Administration is not paving the way toward a more peaceful Middle East.

The Jerusalem Post reported today that White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel said thwarting Iran’s nuclear program is conditional on progress in peace negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians.

Jerusalem Post:

Former US House Speaker Newt Gingrich has accused the Obama administration of endangering the Jewish state.

Referring to news reports about the administration’s approach to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, Gingrich told The Jerusalem Post that the US had been setting itself on a collision course with Israel.

He said: “There’s almost an eagerness to take on the Israeli government to make a point with the Arab world.”

Gingrich, in Israel to present a speech to the American Israel Public Affairs Committee’s annual conference, said President Barack Obama’s Middle East policies had become “dangerous for Israel” and “the clearest adoption of weakness since Jimmy Carter.”

He said the US should be sending the message to Israel that “we are for the survival of Israel” and could not tolerate Iran having nuclear weapons.
