When Nidal Malik Hasan shouted “Allahu Akbar” and killed thirteen and wounded twenty-nine at Ft. Hood in 2009, the Obama administration refused to call it what it was: Islamic terrorism. The Department of Defense classified the attack as simply “workplace violence.”
Remember the comical attempt by Janet Napolitano, our chief of Homeland Security, to rename Islamic terrorism as “man-caused disasters”?
The September 11, 2012 Benghazi terror attack, which killed our ambassador and three others, was blamed on an obscure anti-Mohammed video, not on the real perpetrators, and the administration has stonewalled on that incident ever since, blocking access to the truth about Hillary Clinton’s role in the fiasco.
Now, with the Boston bombers, we are seeing the same approach—refusal to call it what it really was. Aided by their compatriots in the media, the administration tried to deflect attention away from the Islamic roots of this latest act. They hinted it might be “right-wing extremists” since the bombings took place on tax day. They were disappointed.
One almost expected another Benghazi explanation:
President Obama tells Americans not to rush to judgment. Fine. We haven’t. We can see clearly what’s happening. It’s the federal government that is blind:
Why the obfuscation? A longtime reporter who has excellent sources, Bill Gertz, has come up with the answer. Here’s what he has written recently:
U.S. officials familiar with the FBI’s counterterrorism training program and its controversial public outreach program to Muslim groups said FBI policy toward Islam—that it should not be used to describe those who seek to wage jihad or holy war against the United States and others they regard as infidels—has prevented both effective counterterrorism investigations and training.
The officials said the problem is that most field agents understand the nature of the threat but have been hamstrung by policies imposed by senior FBI leaders who are acting under orders of political appointees in the Obama administration, including Islamic advisers to the White House. The policies have prevented the FBI from conducting aggressive counterterrorism investigations of Islamic radicals or those who are in the process of being radicalized.
In other words, this is the official policy of the Obama administration: never blame the Islamists for what the Islamists do. The FBI is hampered by the political appointees, some of whom are Muslims, who actively prevent honest investigations.
There are some who will immediately jump on this to say that Obama is a Muslim. Well, if he is, he’s the most non-observant Muslim in the world. No, he is, and always has been, a convinced Marxist/anti-colonialist who sees Muslims as a group oppressed by the West. Every once in a while that attitude sneaks out for all to see, but he usually keeps it mostly under wraps, schooled as he is in the Saul Alinsky tactic of working from the inside to revolutionize the nation.
The Boston Marathon bombings are just another example to showcase the Obama worldview. This insidious, destructive worldview needs to be more fully exposed. Americans need to wake up and realize whom they have placed in the highest office in the land.
