How many terrorist attacks will it take before President Obama can acknowledge the common denominator present in each instance, radical Islam?
President Obama’s politically correct reluctance to attribute the terrorist threat we face with radical Islam hobbles our ability to combat it by discouraging counterterrorism agents from taking radical Islam into account when evaluating potential threats. The examples of Fort Hood, Boston, San Bernardino, and Orlando demonstrate the harmful consequences of this administration’s willful blindness.

Of course, he never will. And the attacks will continue. As former terrorism prosecutor Andrew C. McCarthy notes:
Indeed, the Obama administration continues to scrub references of radical Islamic terrorism from governmental-agency training manuals, as well as recently redacting Islam references from 911 calls made by the terrorist during the Orlando attack. Meanwhile, Attorney General Loretta Lynch is making appearances on television shows with such absurd remarks as –
our most effective response to terror…is unity and love.
Given the propensity with which the Obama administration has sought to engage in practices of distraction and deception, wherein the security of American citizens is compromised, a hearing has been scheduled for June 28th, 2016. The subject is – Willful Blindness: Consequences of Agency Efforts To Deemphasize Radical Islam in Combating Terrorism.
