Obama Legacy: Fake news on steroids?
On December 6, 2016, President Obama said, “We should take great pride in the progress that we’ve made over the last eight years. That’s the bottom line. No foreign terrorist organization has successfully planned and executed an attack on our homeland."
Two words leap out: "Organization," and "successfully." The inclusion of those two words in President Obama’s statement explains why the Obama White House instructs the members of the Executive Branch, to include the Pentagon, State Department, and the FBI, to strive to identify Islamic terrorists as "lone wolves," not under the control of some well-know Islamic jihadist terror "organizations." The word "successfully" is used by President Obama to cover those attacks where Islamic jihadist "organizations" claimed ownership of attacks that fizzled.
Since President Obama took office, here is the record: June 1, 2009, Little Rock AR, Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad, murdered one soldier, wounding another. Nov. 5, 2009, Ft. Hood, TX, Muslim Nidal Malik Hassan, an Army psychiatrist, murdered 13 people and wounded 30 others. Dec. 4, 2009, Binghamton, NY, Abdulsalam S. al-Zahrani, stabbed Professor Richard T.
