Obama Touts Work Securing Loose Nukes in New Ad

By Ed O'Keefe in The Trail:

As Barack Obama gives what his campaign is billing as a "major address" on national security, he will start airing a new ad that promotes his efforts to secure nuclear weapons around the world.

Calling it "the single most important national security threat that we face," Obama speaks with voters in footage first used in some of his primary campaign ads.

"We are a beacon of light around the world. At least that's what we can be again. That's what we should be again," Obama tells the voters.

The senator is also seen visiting nuclear sites in Ukraine with Sen. Richard Lugar (R-Ind.), the ranking Republican on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee who is active on the nuclear security issue. The pair traveled to Ukraine in 2005 to inspect weapons storage facilities. They saw "mortar rounds, land mines and artillery shells of all sizes stacked in huge piles and strewn carelessly about," according to a Post op-ed they wrote in late 2005. Lugar and Obama later co-sponsored a bill passed by Congress that led the U.S. to coordinate efforts with other nations to reduce weapon stockpiles and smuggling.

It is being reported that the Dutch-Anglo oligarghy who controls elections around the world is planning to make Gore the Dem nominee at the convention next month while they get rid of Obama via scandals this month. The reason is because Gore works for them and will promote their agenda to privatize the U.S. for 100% profits as the economy is tanking and get rid of our system of government, both the Dem and GOP parties and the peoples' soverignty. Billionaire NYC Mayor Bloomberg is also another one of their employees and is ready to be placed where ever he is needed either Dem or GOP parties to do the same job as he's been privatizing NYC for the past 8 years.
