All the hallmarks of Islamic terror attacks in Paris, France, on Friday weren’t enough to convince President Obama that it would be honest to use the word “Islam.”
Obama briefly addressed the nation on Friday after a string of coordinated Islamic terrorist attacks prompted French President Francois Hollande to declare a state of emergency and shut all borders.
Authorities confirmed eight terrorists dead by early Saturday morning: “This is a heartbreaking situation. And obviously those of us here in the United States know what it’s like. We’ve gone through these kinds of episodes ourselves,” Obama said. “I’m sure that in the days ahead we’ll learn more about exactly what happened, and my teams will make sure that we are in communication with the press to provide you accurate information. I don’t want to speculate at this point in terms of who was responsible for this. It appears that there may still be live activity and dangers that are taking place as we speak. And so until we know from French officials that the situation is under control, and we have for more information about it, I don’t want to speculate.”
A witness at one of the attack locations said a man screamed “This is for Syria!” And hollard, “ as he opened fire on patrons at a Paris restaurant. But…Obama said: “I don’t want to speculate at this point in terms of who was responsible for this.” As if Obama doesn’t understand Arabic!
“There are lots of dead people,” a witness told the network. “It’s pretty horrific to be honest. I was at the back of the bar. I couldn’t see anything. I heard gunshots. People dropped to the ground. We put a table over our heads to protect us.”
Obama used Friday’s address to condemn the attempt “to terrorize innocent civilians,” but refused to specifically identify the attack as an Islamic Jihadi terrorist group.
Members of the Islamic State immediately took to social media in droves to celebrate the attack.
Vocative reported: “O crusaders, we are coming to you with bombs and rifles.”
“After the French crimes in Mali, and the bombing of Syria and Iraq, now comes the killing. In your homes there will be war,” tweeted another.
ABC News aired an interview where Obama downplayed the group’s reach – just hours before the attack.
In an interview with George Stephanopoulos on Good Morning America, Obama asserted that ISIS was not gaining strength and that “we have contained them.”
“We’ve always understood that our goal has to be militarily constraining ISIL’s capabilities, cutting off their supply lines, cutting off their financing,” he said.
And yet he won’t put troops on the ground or just carpet bomb ISIS. He won’t cut off their supply lines, he supplies them, and instead of cutting off their financing - he supports them. I.e. Iran, and the so-called rebels which turned into ISIS, the so-called Palestinians, the Muslim Brotherhood, the Saudis. He supports them all.
Obama pushed back when Stephanopoulos suggested ISIS was gaining strength.
“I don’t think they’re gaining strength,” Obama said. “From the start, our goal has been to contain and we have contained them. They have not gained ground in Iraq, and in Syria they’ll come in, they’ll leave. But you don’t see this systemic march by ISIL across the terrain.”
“From the start, our goal has been to contain and we have contained them.”
