Since his securing of the White House in 2009, President Barack Obama’s tenure has overseen a number of Islamic terrorist attacks on the homeland. Below is a partial list.
Little Rock Military Recruiting Station – June 1, 2009 – 1 Dead, 1 Wounded
Killing one soldier and wounding another, then 23-year-old Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad shot at a military recruiting station in Little Rock on June 1, 2009.
Born in Tennessee and originally named Carlos Leon Bledsoe, the murderer converted to Islam as a teenager and changed his name in March of 2006.
Muhammad was “on the FBI’s radar even before the attack,” having previously traveled to Yemen and being arrested there while using a Somali passport.
Claiming to be angry about the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, Muhammad expressed antagonistic views about “what [US soldiers] had done to Muslims in the past,” describing his attack as an “act of retaliation.”
He was convicted and sentenced to life in prison.
Fort Hood Military Post – August 16, 2009 – 13 Dead, 28 Wounded
Nidal Hasan, a US-born Muslim of “Palestinian” descent, murdered 13 people and 28 others at Fort Hood Army Post on August 16, 2009.
Overtly religious, Hassan wore “traditional Muslim clothing,” prayed regularly, and openly discussed “religious aspects of Islam” during a presentation of his at Walter Reed Medical Center as part of his residency tenure while studying psychiatry.
Despite many red flags pertaining to his Islamism and incompetent medical performance, the Army and broader national security apparatus failed to prevent his mass murder Islamic terrorist attack.
Hasan “equated the war on against terrorism with a war against Islam.”
Boston Marathon – April 15-18, 2013 – 5 Dead, 280 Wounded
Tamerlan and Dzhokhar murdered 5 people, including 2 police officers, and injured 280 across three days in April of 2009. Initially detonating a bomb near the Boston Marathon’s finish line on April 15, the two Muslim immigrant brothers from Chechnya – who were admitted to the US as refugees – murdered 3 civilians and injured 280 others. During the subsequent manhunt, they murdered two police officers. Tamerlan, then 26, was killed.
Djokhar, then 22, was captured after a three-day manhunt. He was subsequently sentenced to death and is currently awaiting his punishment.
A House Committee on Homeland Security determined in 2014 that “systematic problems” led to the missing of “red flags and warnings” from the Tsarnaevs to be missed by the FBI and other security agencies.
Seattle and West Orange Killings – April – June 2014 – 4 Dead
Ali Muhammad Brown, 31, was charged with murdering four people in 2014 across two states which he claimed was a “protest against US foreign policy.”
“All these lives are taken every single day by America, by this government,” said Brown. “So a life for a life.”
Two of brown’s victims were homosexual men, both murdered outside of a Seattle gay nightclub.
Brown was on the federal terror watch list at the time.
Oklahoma City Beheading – September 25, 2014 – 1 Dead
Alton Nolen, a convert to Islam, murdered and “beheaded a female colleague” at a food plant located in a suburb of Oklahoma City on September 24, 2014.
Nolen’s former co-workers said he tried to convert them to Islam. His Facebook profile listed his name as “Jah’Keem Yisrael,” featuring a banner photo of Taliban mujahedeen and expressing left-wing and Islamic anti-American politics.
As of late 2014, the prosecution was seeking the death penalty against Nolen.
Chattanooga Military Recruitment and Navy Reserve Shooting – July 16, 2015 – 5 Dead, 2 Wounded
Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez murdered 5 soldiers on July 16, 2015. He also injured another soldier and police officer.
The attacks took place over the course of about thirty minutes, during which Abdulazeez fired approximately 100 rounds. He was fatally shot by police officers.
Born in Kuwait, Abdulazeez was of “Palestinian” descent. He was permitted to emigrate to the US and became a naturalized citizen along with his “strict, conservative Muslim” family.
Abdulazeez’s father was previously on a terrorist watchlist for donating money to an organization suspected of supporting Islamic terrorism.
San Bernardino Attack – December 2, 2015 – 14 Dead, 22 Injured
Rizwan Farook and Tashfeen Malik murdered 14 people and injured 22 others on December 2, 2015 in San Bernardino, at a Christmas party hosted by Rizwan’s employer – the local health department.
A Muslim born in Chicago to parents who emigrated from Pakistan, Rizwan was legally permitted to bring religious Muslim wife Tashfeen to the US from Pakistan with a K-1 via designed for promoting family unification.
The Islamic terrorist couple fired 65-75 shots over the course of four minutes at the party. The two also designed pipe bombs which failed to detonate. Both were killed in a shootout with police officers.
Hillary Clinton has regularly expressed her support for expansion of Muslim immigration beyond Obama’s admission of tens of thousands of migrants and refugees from Syria and other Muslim-majority failed states, claiming that it strengthens America.
