Attorney General Eric Holder Blames Fox News For Talking About ‘Radical Islam’ (VIDEO) … Watch Reaction
Hasn’t this Fox News obsessed hater left office yet?
From The Daily Caller comes the following … At the National Press Club on Tuesday, outgoing Attorney General Eric Holder mocked Fox News for having the audacity of talking to much about the Obama administration’s refusal to use the term “radical Islam.” WOW, how dare they. Because you know Eric, if they didn’t report on it, we all know that the bias, left-wing liberal Democrat media complex would not. This is yet another example of just how small, petty and thin-skinned the Barack Obama White House is. Seriously, the media’s job is to question government. To single out a news media outlet like that is just so low rent. Holder said, we spend more time on what do you call it. Hmm, isn’t this the same person who calls out the Tea Party by name and calls police officers racists?
Huh, 21 Coptic Christians beheaded, a Muslim Jordain pilot burned alive in a cage, terror attacks in Paris and Copenhagen and the Obama administration refuses to use the term “radical Islam.” Instead they attack Fox News for actually doing their job. Why does it appear that the Obama administration talks tougher to Fox News than ISIS?
HOLDER: Whenever you’re getting criticized by both sides, it probably means you’re probably getting right. We spend more time, more time talking about what you call it, as opposed to what do you do about it, you know? I mean really. If Fox didn’t talk about this, they would have nothing else to talk about, it seems to me.
Radical Islam, Islamic extremism; I’m not sure an awful lot is gained by saying that. It doesn’t have any impact on our military posture; it doesn’t have any impact on what we call it, on the policies that we put in place. What we have to do is defined not by the terms that we use, but by the facts on the ground. So I don’t worry an awful lot about what the appropriate terminology ought to be.
I think that people need to actually think about that, and think about will we be having this conversation about words as opposed to what our actions ought to be? This is a difficult problem. This is going to be an ongoing issue. This is something that requires us to think as a nation how we are going to deal with the domestic issues that I was describing in my previous response, and how are we going to deal with the foreign policy consequences of some very, very serious problems that our allies face, and that we face, particularly in a particular part of the world. The terminology, it seems to me little to no impact on what ultimately we have to do.
Holder Blames Fox News For ‘Radical Islam’ Controversy – Greta Van Susteren
Watch the reaction to Holder’s comments. These may be some of the most truthful and honest comments ever made of the Obama administration. Its time to send the JV packing. Note to Obama, Holder et all … the jihad is not because they can’t get jobs at Arby’s.

State Department SPOX Marie Harf Trying to Defend Her ‘JOBS FOR JIHADISTS” Comments … Quotes the GWB Doctrine
GOOD GRIEF, STATE DEPT SPOX IS STILL TRYING TO DEFEND HER JOBS FOR JIHADISTS COMMENTS … WHO IS THE JV?
State Department SPOX Marie Harf goes on the defensive and tells us that we are just not smart enough to understand what she said … Marie Harf to Critics: Maybe My Comments Were ‘Too Nuanced’ for you. Looks like the MSM is giving Harf another opportunity to explain her ridiculous comments. That’s correct, Harf defends her “JOBS FOR JIHADISTS” comments. What else is the liberal Democrat media complex to do. Harf appeared with Wolf Blitzer on CNN’s The Situation Room and attempted to clarify her point. Sorry, did I just hear Harf repeat the following, “We cannot kill every terrorist around the world, nor should we try.” NOR SHOULD WE TRY? NOR SHOULD WE TRY!!!
Maybe Barack Obama will create a new government program, Welfare and Food Stamps for terrorist.
“I’m not the first person to say something like this,” Harf said. “Military commanders that we’ve had throughout many years here fighting this war on terrorism have said the exact same thing, that in the short term when there’s a threat like ISIL. We’ll take direct military action against these terrorists. We have done that. We are doing that in Iraq and Syria. But longer term, we have to look at how we combat the conditions that can lead people to turn to extremism.”
Unbelievable, she is quoting George W. Bush and the Bush doctrine. This from the same Obama administration that has had nothing good to say about GWB and his handling of the war on terror. Barack Obama has tried to distance himself from w, and change everything and anything away from Bush … now when backed into a corner because of so-called “nuanced” comments, they turn to GWB to defend their foreign policy. ARE YOU KIDDING? You know the Obama administration has hit rock bottom when they need W for help.
State Department spokesperson Harf tries to put the toothpaste back in the tube as she goes on the defensive regarding her ignorant comments. Check out the Twitter-fest at Twitchy as Harf is just making matters worse trying to defend her foolish comments. Hey Ms. Harf, backpedaling from beyond stupid comments is like quicksand, the more you try, the worse it gets. Get this, for the past 6 years and two years prior to that campaigning for president, Barack Obama distanced himself and trashed George W. Bush for his handled the war on terror, now his administration is quoting Bush and appealing to the Bush Doctrine.
Marie Harf - @marieharf
Jobs programs don’t quite cut it when you’re in the 72 virgins business. This is where the administration’s comprehensive denial of the motive forces driving the terrorists is key. They aren’t looking for work. They aren’t looking to get rich. They aren’t looking for early childhood education. They aren’t looking for daycare programs. They’ve got something else on their mind, something else that is taboo to speak of in the higher reaches of the Obama administration.
“I’m not the first person to say something like this,” Harf said this afternoon. “Military commanders that we’ve had throughout many years here fighting this war on terrorism have said the exact same thing, that in the short term when there’s a threat like ISIL. We’ll take direct military action against these terrorists. We have done that. We are doing that in Iraq and Syria. But longer term, we have to look at how we combat the conditions that can lead people to turn to extremism.”
“So you suggested that maybe if you find these young men jobs, they might not become terrorists?” Blitzer asked.
JOBS FOR JIHADISTS … Even MSNBC’s Chris Mathews Trashes State Dept Spox Marie Harf’s Obama Talking Points Idiocy, … “We Cannot Win This War by Killing Them” … “Lack of Opportunity for Jobs”
BROUGHT TO YOU BY THE SAME PRESIDENT WHO GAVE YOU CASH FOR CLUNKERS, NOW COMES OBAMA’S WAY TO END ISIS … JOBS FOR JIHADISTS!!!
Obama’s war on terror is in reality a jobs program for Jihadists.
Just when you thought the Obama admin could not be more of a bunch of terrorist deniers, now these libs put forth that they can end radical Islam with a jobs program. America, you know it is bad for Barack Obama when MSNBC’s Chris Matthews laughs at your foreign policy and slaps your State Department spokesperson upside her head as to Obama’s end game with ISIS. Mathews began the interview by stating, “if I were ISIS. I would not be afraid right now. There is no existential threat to these people, they can keep finding places where they can hold executions and putting the camera work together, getting their proper together , and killing people for show, and nothing we do right now seems to be directed at stopping this.”
State Department spokesperson Marie Harf unbelievable said the following, “We can not win this war by killing them. We can not kill our way out of this war. We need in the medium and longer term to go after the root causes that lead people to join these groups, whether it is lack of opportunity for jobs.” WHAT!!! Jobs, jobs? This insane administration thinks that if Jihadists have jobs, they will stop them from beheading innocent men, women and children. Just curious America, how frightened are you right now that these people are in power? This idiot speaks for Sec. of State John Kerry, who follows the foreign policy strategy of Barack Obama and she just told the enemy that an organized US military and their allies cannot defeat ISIS. I would ask the following question, then why are we there? Surprisingly, Matthews shot back with a look of, are you effing kidding me stating, “But we’re not going to be able to stop that in our lifetime or in fifty lifetimes. There’s always going to be poor people. There’s always going to be Muslims, and as long as the trumpet is blowing they’ll join.” WOW, how many times can you say that you agreed with Chris Matthews?
So let’s understand this, professor Obama is using Root cause analysis to defeat ISIS, really? The root cause analysis of burning people alive, mass beheadings, seriously? So we are going to use The 5 Whys, Barrier Analysis, Events and Causal Factor Charting and Realitycharting to determine what makes these 17 year old kids pick up an AK-47 instead of starting a business? GOD HELP US THAT WE CAN SURVIVE THE OBAMA PRESIDENCY.
Chris Matthews amazingly says at the end, to my surprise, in response to Marie Harf’s blathering, “this sounds like how we are going to get rid of juvenile delinquency in America over time by erasing poverty and improving education.” Then Mathews said, “the American people I think are getting humiliated morally by this.” BINGO!!! And there lies Obama’s ultimate goal, he is a community agitator socialist at heart who blames America for all the evils of the world.
MARIE HARF, U.S. STATE DEPARTMENT: I think there are a few stages here, right now we are trying to take their leaders and their fighters off the battlefield in Iraq & Syria, that is where they really flourish.
CHRIS MATTHEWS, MSNBC: Are we killing enough of them?
MARIE HARF: We’re killing a lot of them. And we’re going to keep killing more of them. So are the Egyptians and Jordanians, they’re in this fight with us. We can not win this war by killing them. We can not kill our way out of this war. We need in the medium and longer term to go after the root causes that lead people to join these groups, whether it is lack of opportunity for jobs–
CHRIS MATTHEWS: But we’re not going to be able to stop that in our lifetime or in fifty lifetimes. There’s always going to be poor people. There’s always going to be Muslims, and as long as the trumpet is blowing they’ll join. We can’t stop that, can we?
MARIE HARF: We can work with countries around the world to help improve their governance. We can help them build their economies, so they can have job opportunities for these people. [...] What makes these 17 year old kids pick up an AK-47 instead of starting a business?
57% of Americans prior to this nonsense of “jobs for Jihadists” disapproved of how Barack Obama was handling ISIS, look for this number to go up as it is clear that Barack Obama has no plan or strategy to take on ISIS because frankly, he does not take it seriously.
REALLY, 40% OF AMERICANS ARE SO DISHONEST AND CLUELESS THAT THEY CANNOT ANSWER THIS QUESTION TRUTHFULLY?
According to a recent CNN poll, 57% of Americans disapprove of how Barack Obama is handling ISIS. Just 57%, seriously? 40% of the American public are actually so clueless and out to lunch that they approve of how Obama is handing ISIS and the brutal beheadings and burning people alive. What are the odds that this 40% even are aware of these barbaric acts or even what ISIS is. It is disgustingly pathetic that so many people cannot just be honest and actually admit that Obama can actually do something poorly.
Full poll results can be read HERE.
40% of polled approve of Obama’s handling of ISIS, as innocents are burned to death.
Americans are increasingly unhappy with President Barack Obama’s handling of ISIS, and a growing share of the nation believes that fight is going badly, according to a new CNN/ORC survey released Monday.
The CNN/ORC poll found 57% of Americans disapprove of how Obama is handling the threat posed by ISIS, a significant decline in support for the President over the past few months. In late September, that number was 49%.
Fifty-seven percent disapprove of his handling of foreign affairs more broadly, and 54% disapprove of how the President is handling terrorism. Another 60% rate Obama negatively on his handling of electronic national security.
EXIT QUESTION: I wonder how the 21 Coptic Christians that were beheaded by ISIS in Triopli, Libya would have answered this question? Maybe we could also ask Kayla Mueller, British aid worker Alan Henning, 47 year old Kenji Goto, Haruna Yukawa, or Peter Kassig. We would love to get their opinions; however, they have all been killed by ISIS.
ISIS Releases VIDEO of Barbaric Mass Beheading of 21 Egyptian Coptic Christians in Libya (Update: Egypt Bombs ISIS in Revenge for Beheadings)
ISIS releases another barbaric VIDEO showing the mass beheading of 21 Egyptian Coptic Christians in Libya. Making matters worse, if possible, these vile acts took place in Tripoli, Libya. Remember when we used to have a presence and am embassy in there? Just yet another example of Barack Obama’s failed foreign policy and terrorist on the run.
Islamic State has released a video purporting to show the militant group beheading 21 Egyptian Christians kidnapped in Libya.
The video, released this afternoon, shows ISIS fighters dressed head to toe in black, marching the captives, all wearing orange jumpsuits, to a beach.
The 21 men can be seen being forced onto their knees before they are beheaded by the militants standing behind them.
The extremely graphic video first appeared on the Twitter feed of a website that supports Islamic State.
A caption on the five-minute video read: ‘The people of the cross, followers of the hostile Egyptian church.’
PICS – Warning, graphic imagery.
In the picture below from the YouTube VIDEO, the masked ISIS terrorist says, “Safety for you crusaders is something you can only wish for.” Thanks Barack Obama for providing these savages talking points when you stated at this years National Prayer breakfast that some how Christians were to blame for all of this because they started it with the Crusades. You sad and pathetic excuse for a president.
“Safety for you crusaders is something you can only wish for.”
Egypt sent warplanes over the border to bomb ISIS targets in Libya on Monday in revenge for a savage attack on Egyptian Christians.
It was still dark when the F-16 fighter jets took off, striking training camps and weapons depots along Libya’s coast. One of the targets was Derna – headquarters for many Islamic militants who have sworn allegiance to ISIS.
The bombings came a day after ISIS released a video that appears to show the execution of 21 Egyptian Christians. Masked jihadis are seen marching the captives along a beach, a few whisper their final prayers and then all are beheaded.
Most of the victims came from the Christian village of el-Aour, south of Cairo. On Monday relatives sobbed and shouted in grief. One father begged for the return of his son’s body. Egypt’s President Abdel Fattah al Sisi visited Cairo’s main cathedral to offer his condolences and condemned what he called “a heinous act of terrorism.”
Obama White House Issued a Statement Following the Shooting at a Free Speech Event in Denmark … Once Again Failed to Call it Terrorist
SHAMEFUL: BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA JUST CANT FIND T IN HIMSELF TO CALL TERRORIST ATTACKS FOR WHAT THEY ARE …
Following the shooting at a free speech event in Copenhagen, Denmark, the Obama White House issued a statement calling the attack “deplorable” but did not describe it as “terrorist” in nature. I guess Obama must think this was work place violence. However, the Danish Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt had no problem what so ever calling the attack ?“politically motivated” and “terrorist.”
Denmark’s prime minister, Helle Thorning-Schmidt, said the country was on high alert after a “terrorist attack” in Copenhagen that police said had been aimed at a controversial Swedish artist.
“We feel certain now that it was a politically motivated attack, and thereby it was a terrorist attack,” she told reporters close to the site of the shooting, in which one civilian was killed and three policemen were wounded. “We are on high alert all over the country.”
Sadly, the United States has a pathetic president who cannot call terrorism for what it is. Obama cannot call obvious terrorist events for what they are because it goes against his BS, failed narrative that terrorism is being defeated. However, that is quite the opposite. Barack Obama has so downplayed the role of terrorism during his presidency that he has allowed terrorist groups like ISIS and Al-Qaeda to no longer be on the run and defeated. Instead, Obama’s so-called ISIS jayvee, thanks to his lack of effort and defining the enemy, is now the Varsity.
Good riddance to bad rubbish … Danish Police have killed suspected gunman in Copenhagen multiple terror attacks.
In the video below, Astrid Sondberg, a reporter for TV2 in Copenhagen, speaks to CNN and reports that police shot and killed a man at a residence in Copenhagen. As reported at the New York Times, the Copenhagen police said on Sunday that they had shot and killed a man and identified the suspect as a 22-year-old native of Denmark who was already known to security services as a gang member with a violent criminal record, but they did not name him.
Danish police shot and killed a man early Sunday suspected in the slayings of two people in Copenhagen since Saturday, in what the country’s prime minister calls a “cynical act of terror against Denmark.”
Authorities said the man, who has not yet been publicly identified, was fatally shot after he opened fire on officers near a train station.
Officials said no evidence suggests other gunmen were involved the shootings, one at a free-speech event and the other outside a Copenhagen synagogue.
Police investigator Joegen Skov said Sunday, “We are still faced with a huge investigation. We need to make sure that our theory is in fact correct.
“A number of things indicate that we did get the right man, but we still have to investigate whether he acted alone, but at the moment there is nothing to suggest that any other perpetrators were involved,” Skov said.
Several Shots Fired at Swedish Cartoonist Lars Vilks at “Arts, Blasphemy and Freedom of Expression” Event in Copenhagen, Denmark (VIDEO) … Two Terrorist Suspects Remain At Large (Update: 1 Dead in Terrorist Shooting, 3 Police Wounded)(Update: Another Shooting at Copenhagen Synagogue)
BECAUSE FREE SPEECH HAS NO PLACE IN RADICAL ISLAM …
The BBC is reporting that several shot have been fired at Swedish Cartoonist Lars Vilks in a cafe where a freedom of speech event was taking place in Copenhagen, Denmark. Obviously, this was a terrorist-like shooting, similar to that of the one that took place in Paris, France at the offices of Charlie Hebdo. Lars Vilks has had numerous death threats since his 2007 drawing pictures of the Prophet Muhammad dressed as a dog. The two, unidentified suspects remain at large. According to the police, the Islamo-terrorists fled the scene in a dark Volkswagen Polo, which has since been found abandoned.
According to Lars Vilks website, the event that the 68-year-old artist was hosting Saturday was called “Arts, Blasphemy and Freedom of Expression.”
Reports say up to 40 shots were fired during the attack and a manhunt has been launched.
Swedish cartoonist Lars Vilks has faced death threats after drawing caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad.
He was not harmed during the attack.
Shortly after the shooting, a message appeared on the Twitter feed of French ambassador Francois Zimeray saying he was still alive.
The area around the venue is under lockdown, the BBC’s Malcolm Brabant reports.
Police have erected cordons and are searching a nearby park, he adds.
There were reports that police were hunting two gunmen, but this is unconfirmed.
Shooting at Copenhagen blasphemy debate
UPDATE I: From Local Denmark, Danish police confirm that one person has died after shots were fired at a meeting attended by controversial Swedish artist Lars Vilks.

Update, 6.08pm: Reports of up to 200 shots fired
The French ambassdor to Denmark told AFP from inside the venue that shots rang out in the midst of a debate on Islam and free speech in Copenhagen.
“They fired on us from the outside. It was the same intention as [the January 7 attack on] Charlie Hebdo except they didn’t manage to get in,” Francois Zimeray said by telephone.
Swedish artist Lars Vilks, the author of controversial Prophet Mohammed cartoons published in 2007 that sparked worldwide protests, was also at the debate.
Three police officers were reported wounded outside the building, Danish media reported, quoting eyewitnesses.
ABC News – Police: 1 Dead in Shooting at Copenhagen Free Speech Event:
According to a statement from Danish police, said the victim was a 40-year-old man inside the cafe attending the event. He has not yet been identified. The police also stated that three police colleagues at the event were also shot.
A gunman fired on a cafe in Copenhagen as it hosted a free speech event Saturday, killing one man, Danish police said. The event was organized by Swedish artist Lars Vilks, who has faced numerous threats for caricaturing the Prophet Muhammad.
Danish police said the gunman shot through the windows of the Krudttoenden cafe, which the TV2 news channel said were riddled with some 30 bullet holes. Helle Merete Brix, one of the event’s organizers, told The Associated Press that Vilks was at the meeting but was not hit.
“I saw a masked man running past,” Brix said. “I clearly consider this as an attack on Lars Vilks.”
Helle Merete Brix — the founder of the Lars Vilks Committee, created two years ago in support of the Swedish cartoonist whose portrayals of the Prophet Mohammed angered many in the Muslim world — told CNN that security on site moved her and others to safe areas once they realized a shooting had taken place.
She and Vilks ended up in a storage room together, holding hands, until police told them it was OK to come out.
“We have never taken any chances,” Brix said, pointing to the heavy security from police, Danish intelligence services and Vilks’ own security guards at this and other committee events. “What we have so much been frightened would happen happened tonight.”

UPDATE IV: Police Respond to Second shooting in Copenhagen synagogue in Krystalgade street.
Hours later, a gunman opened fire outside a synagogue in Krystalgade street, about 5km from the scene of the first attack, killing a Jewish man and wounding two police officers.
The victim was named as Dan Uzan, 37. He had been on security duty while a bat mitzvah ceremony was taking place inside the synagogue.
UPDATE V: Copenhagen attacks – the victims.
Finn Norgaard, 55, who was killed in the Copenhagen cafe attack, was a Danish film director, who directed and produced documentaries for Danish television including in 2004 “Boomerang boy” about an Australian boy’s dreams to become a world boomerang champion and in 2008 “Le Le” about Vietnamese immigrants in Denmark.
Dan Uzan, 37, who was killed in the subsequent synagogue attack, came from a family active in Copenhagen’s Jewish community. He attended a Jewish school and joined the community’s security efforts, taking part in patrols to protect Jewish institutions, from a young age.
At 6ft 9 inches, he was a talented basketball player and had played for Horsholm 79-ers since 1996. In a statement the club described him as “a great player and a great personality.”
Danish police raided an Internet cafe in Copenhagen, arresting at least two people in the area where a suspected gunmen in Saturday’s terror attacks was killed, AFP reported on Sunday, citing Danish media.
Police told Denmark’s DR television that the raid was part of the investigation into the terror attacks in which two people were killed.

Kayla Mueller’s Friends and Family: The World Is Better Because of Her, “I Have Come to See that There is Good in Every Situation …”
IF THIS DOES NOT BREAK YOUR HEART AND PISS YOU OFF AT THE SAME TIME TO GET THESE EVIL BASTARDS … YOU MAY NOT HAVE A HEART.
If there was ever a story of Good vs. Evil in today’s world, this is it. The family, friend, loved ones and the world speak out to remember and honor 26 year old Kayla Mueller. There is never a worse story to report than one of an individual with so much love, giving and hope in their life, to have their life cut short by miserable, sadistic and barbaric evil. Such is the case of 26 year old Kayla Mueller, whose family was told that this bright light had been confirmed dead.
Kayla Mueller was a special girl who was silenced by evil. What this girl must have gone through is unimaginable. America … this was one of your daughters, sisters, nieces, cousins. At what point does this president get off his “high horse” and take ISIS seriously? These SOB’s need to be eradicated like the cockroaches that they are. We do not need to be lectured about how we are evil, how the Crusades are responsible for terrorism and that Christan are to blame. Take your twisted ideology and hate America agenda and stick it, with all due respect. At some point America needs to take these barbarians seriously, they are not the JV that Obama claimed. They need to be exterminated before more innocents like Kayla Mueller are killed.
Kayla Mueller’s aunt, Lori Lyon, Expresses her heartbreaking words over the loss of Kayla …
Friends and family of slain ISIS hostage Kayla Mueller said they hoped her death would achieve what she’d worked for before she was kidnapped: raising the awareness of Syrian refugees.
“The things that were important to Kayla are finally getting the attention they deserve,” aunt Lori Lyon said in a tearful news conference in her hometown of Prescott, Arizona, Tuesday — hours after the family confirmed that Mueller had died while in ISIS’ hands.
The Rev. Kathleen Day, who runs the United Christian Ministry at Northern Arizona University, where Mueller was a student, recalled following her blog posts from Syria. “I hope you can tell the entire world here what I’ve said here, and what I’ve seen,” Mueller wrote, according to Day. The pastor also recalled Mueller’s recollection of refugees’ frequent response when they learned she was American: “Where is the world?”
“We’re right here, Syria,” Day said. “We’ve seen your suffering reflected in Kayla’s eyes.”
Childhood friend: Kayla Mueller ‘was joy’
Kayla Mueller: American ISIS Captive Wrote Letter to Family Before Her Death.
In the emotional letter, she does not say anything negative about her captors, writing that she is “completely unharmed + healthy (put on weight in fact); I have been treated w/ the utmost respect + kindness.”
Instead, she puts the brunt of her emotional turmoil on herself.
“If you could say I have ‘suffered’ at all throughout this whole experience it is only in knowing how much suffering I have put you all through,” she wrote.
According to the letter, she relied on memories of family camping trips and her faith to help her during her captivity, writing that “by God + by your prayers I have felt tenderly cradled in freefall.”
“None of us could have known it would be this long but know I am also fighting from my side in the ways I am able + I have a lot of fight left inside of me. I am not breaking down + I will not give in no matter how long it takes,” she wrote.
Bob Woodward Says on ‘Fox News Sunday’ … “There’s No Strategy” For ISIS and Obama White House Is “Micromanaging” Military
FRIGHTENING, JUST FRIGHTENING …
Yesterday on FOX News Sunday, WAPO’s Bob Woodward responded to Chris Wallace’s question regarding how Barack Obama is handling the war against ISIS and what to make of Obama’s comparisons to the crusades. Woodward eviscerated the Obama White House for having no plan for dealing with ISIS.
Bob Woodward said the military is upset because Susan Rice is telling the generals how to fight.
“If you talk to people in the White House and the military, I think there’s agreement and John McCain is right and General Flynn is right, there is no strategy. They have not sat down and said this is where we want to go and this is how we want to do it. And the measure of that, when you head into the weeds here, people from the White House are micromanaging the tactical situation on a daily and weekly basis. That’s not their job. They have to kind of do strategic planning and say what do we want to accomplish in the next year […] “And they have got all these people in the White House. You talk to people in the military who are there and they say ‘we are being micromanaged and we’re not given a real plan to say what are we going to do here.’ And it’s not the way to run a war or try to win a war.”
But what would you expect from an administration that thinks this myth of ‘GLOBAL WARMING’ is a greater threat to the United States than radical Islam.
