In the ongoing war of words between President Obama, who has repeatedly said that Orlando shooters Omar Mateen was “self-radicalized” and was not influenced by Islamic elements, and Donald Trump, who has said that Mateen’s actions were provoked by “radicalized Islam,” Obama got some help from his Attorney General, Loretta Lynch.
Here’s the (almost) unbelievable assist as reported by Zero Hedge and Real Clear Politics:
“… Attorney General Loretta Lynch said that the FBI will release edited transcripts of the 911 calls made by the Orlando night club shooters to the police during his rampage. One minor matter: the transcripts will be heavily edited.
“‘What we’re not going to do is further proclaim this man’s pledges of allegiance to terrorist groups, and further his propaganda,’ Lynch said.
“‘We are not going to hear him make his assertions of allegiance [to the Islamic State].’ Why: so Obama’s statement that he was ‘self-radicalized’ will preserve credibility.”
Yeah, pull the other leg – it plays Jingle Bells. We can’t even buy this statement for a dollar.
Obama has tried to spin this tragedy by saying “we see no clear evidence that was was directed extrenally”… Well, aside from all the facts perhaps which explains the DOJ’s drastic intervention and obvious attempt to cover up the truth.
The 9-Handicap-in-Chief went on:
“It does appear that at the last minute, he announced allegiance to ISIL. But there is no evidence so far that he was in fact directed by ISIL, and at that this stage there’s no direct evidence that he was part of a larger plot.”
And what better way to make Obama’s point that Mateen was “self-radicalized” than to purposefully delete any and all Islamist references.
Update: The Obama administration flip-flopped (again) and decided to release the full, unedited transcripts of Mateen’s 911 calls.
Based on this recent incident and the Obama administration’s attempt to cover it up, do you believe that Obama is a Muslim who’s trying to defend the Islamic terrorist movement instead of fighting it?
