Ever since it was publicly disclosed that the killer of 49 persons in the Orlando gay club was a known Muslim extremist who had been under FBI surveillance, Obama has still failed to properly identify the murderer as a radical Islamic terrorist.
Obama’s refusal to so identify is indicative of his administration's failure to acknowledge the serious threat of domestic radical Islamic terrorism within the borders of the United States.
Obama’s negligence in this regard has “trickled down” to his Justice Department and to federal law enforcement agencies in the U.S.
The FBI has described Omar Mateen as a “person of interest." He had been twice picked up by the FBI in the last two years, interviewed, investigated, then let go.
Unofficial sources within and without the FBI allege that Mateen was released due to political correctness. Obama and his close advisers have made it patently clear to all Justice department officials that targeting Muslim men was akin to racial profiling.
This policy has handcuffed the FBI and all federal security agencies who are tasked with protecting Americans from terrorism.
The Orlando massacre was certainly preventable, but not as long as Obama’s soft approach to domestic radical Islamic terrorism rules the day.
Notwithstanding Omar Mateen's 911 call pledging his support for ISIS prior to the Orlando massacre, Obama’s first public response was that event this was merely a hate crime.
Hillary Clinton, who has tied her faltering presidential campaign to Obama’s failed presidency, weakly echoed Obama’s statement.
Only several hours later (and, I am sure, extensive focus grouping) the spineless Obama grudgingly admitted that a terrorist act had been committed.
Obama’s puppet Hillary then changed her public view and came out echoing her former boss.
Liberals cannot bring themselves to believe that radical Islamists hate gays and believe they should be killed and eradicated from a preferred Sharia-based society.
In public remarks on Tuesday, Obama argued that to label the killer as a radical Muslim would further inflame ISIS to commit further atrocities.
Clearly, Obama is more concerned about the feelings of American Muslims rather than those of non-Muslim Americans who are being terrorized.
The president instead had the chutzpah to focus on gun control, then blamed the American people for being intolerant towards the gay lifestyle.
Clearly Obama has stayed too long at the party. The sooner he leaves the political scene the better.
And since she has tied her failing campaign to Obama and his legacy, Hillary Clinton’s hopes of being the first female American president died in that Orlando gay club too.
