As we reported yesterday in this space, President Obama told CNN on Wednesday, as investigators sought the San Bernardino terrorist shooters, that Americans should feel safe from ISIS. “They are a dangerous organization like al Qaeda was, but we have hardened our defenses. The American people should feel confident that, you know, we are going to be able to defend ourselves and make sure that, you know, we have a good holiday and go about our lives.”
At the same exact time that Obama was saying this, the San Bernardino shootings were occurring. At the same exact time that Obama was saying this, one of those shooters, Tashfeen Malik, was pledging her allegiance to ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. According to CNN:
The posting was by Malik made on an account with a different name, according to one U.S. official. The officials did not explain how they knew Malik made the post.
Our president is so ensconced in his own swaddling cloth of narrative that he has thus far declared ISIS jayvee, only to watch them become the world’s leading terrorist group; declared that Americans shouldn’t fear unscreened Muslim widows, even as three female terrorists engaged in terrorist attacks in France and Mali; and now, said that we’re all safe from ISIS even as ISIS attacked the United States.
At the same exact time.
This president is a danger to our nation. It is that simple.
