ABC News Actually Claims Boston is the First Terrorist Attack on the US Homeland Under Obama!
04/16/13 | Me

Posted on 04/16/2013 1:51:46 PM PDT by MissesBush

Anyone else listening to Sean Hannity's Show and the ABC News breaks during? ABC News is SHAMELESSLY claiming this is the first US homeland terror attack on Obama's watch, a blatant lie and surely they know it. And if they don't, they should go out of the news business. ABC News needs to tell the families of the 13 murdered heros by Hassan the Islamic radical maggot that their loved ones didn't die from terrorism. Or should we assume ABC News is just toeing the Obama line that it was an act of workplace violence and not what it was, terrorism?

What about the shooting and murder of one ROTC recruiter, and the wounding of another by yet another Islamic radical in Little Rock in 2009? And 2 other major terrorist masscres were only averted because of the incompetence of the bombers, not because of the Obama administration's supposed vigiliance: The Times Square bombing and the Detroit airliner bombing. Had either succeeded, Obama's record on domestic terrorism would be considered eggregious. That these attacks all happened, or nearly happened, without the Obama admin detecting and preventing them tells us something is seriously amiss in the Obama admin's handling of terrorism and homeland security. The loss of enhanched interrogations is surely partly to blame. Instead, the shameless imbeciles at ABC Radio News try to tout some sort of illusory Obama triumph on preventing terrorism!

The ABC lapdogs even went so far as to report Clinton's first US homeland terrorist act came within weeks of his being sworn in and Bush's in his first year, but "4 years, 3 months and 25 days" into Obama's presidency as they actually contrasted came Obama's first deadly terrorist attack on US soil as if to say "look at how much better Obama's been on combating terrorism!"

The US news media once again shows itself to be intellectually dishonest and cravenly co-opted. What an embarrassment and what an afront to the brave service people who suffered under the scourge Islamic terror on US soil during Obama's watch, to say nothing of the many who also perished overseas under Obama including especially our Benghazi diplomats.

And still no war crimes. Except the torture, abuse, and murder of a POW named Momar Gaddafi.

Calling a terrorist attack "workplace violence" does not make that terrorist attack "workplace violence."

Journalists do not know history, even current events. It just makes me cringe when some psycho kills a dozen people and the fools report it as “The worst mass killing in US history”, or some nonsense like that.

Seriously, if Murdock buys the LA Times and the Chicago Trib, he will have to found a journalism college just to have some reporters who aren’t utter imbeciles. The current crop can’t walk and chew gum at the same time.

Little Rock shooting. Ft. Hood shooting. Panty Bomber. Times Square bombing. Boston bombing. I’m sure I’m forgetting others that have occurred on Soetoro’s watch.

“The worst mass killing in US history”, or some nonsense like that.

Someone posted another thread earlier about the Ten Deadliest Bombings in US History. This one wasn't even close. Aside from Oklahoma City, the WTC and an unsolved bombing at LaGuardia Airport in the 70's, most were pre-1960 and involved anarchists or labor agitators. Aside from that hideous 1927 Michigan school bombing and a couple of nuts who blew themselves up on airplanes to let family collect on their life insurance. They went back as far as the Haymarket Riot in 1886.

But I doubt you'd find one Journ-O-List in a hundred who was familiar with any of that.

One can understand the confusion re: shoe or fruit of the loom underwear...

Actually, if it is a Muslim, Arab or Islamic sect, it simply cannot be "terror" for this White House!

Actually, terror no longer exists except in the minds of conservatives.

One of the Washington Post's front-page stories on the Boston bombing had this headline when the story turned to page A7: "After a decade of plots foiled or botched, one success."

Actually I was pleasantly surprised to see that Ron Fournier of the AP included Hassan's shooting at Fort Hood as a terrorist attack, in a piece published today.

Apparently Fournier isn't buying the Obama/Holder labeling of that event as "workplace violence."

Ah, yes, I do seem to remember that or those incidents now.

Most, if not all, murderous terror acts committed around the world can trace their roots to Islam and Muslim extremists, no matter which country or continent and we can now lump the Muslim Brotherhood that is in charge in Egypt, as a sponsor of terror, for they are killing Coptic Christians by the droves. We just don't hear about it at least not from our own MSM for they are loathe to point the finger at Muslims.

It is so difficult to understand as the media, academia and Hollywierd, are so pro-Muslim yet when or if Muslims and Sharia law became prevalent in this country, wholesale honor killings, slaughter of homosexuals and clamp down on all pornography vendors (think Hollywierd) as well as nonsensical college classes on or about sex, would stop immediately!

I agree with your characterization of the MSM and Hassan.

While I understand your feelings about Hassan's victims, not all of them were necessarily heroes.

Several most definitely were, including those who charged or tried to charge him at risk of their own lives.

But merely being shot isn't particularly heroic. It's nothing to be ashamed of, and I'm sure many or most of his victims would have fought back if they had been given a chance.

My point is not really about Ft. Hood. What I object to is the conflation of the concepts of heroism and victimization. Heroism consists of action, usually fighting back, especially when you don't really have to and/or in defense of others rather than just yourself. And just being in the line of fire of a psycho does not in and of itself make you a hero.

I consider anyone who serves in the US armed forces and does so honorably at the risk to their own lives, comfort and well-being to be heroic, which is why I characterized them as such, not merely because they were victimized by Hassan.

Obama should be thanking Bush (profusely!) for a legacy of much better national security, than Bush inherited from Clinton.

More and more, we see the wisdom of taking the fight to the jihadis, rather than trying to deal with terrorism as just another law-enforcement issue. The wars in Iraq and Afghanistan sucked up so much of the jihadist’s resources that they couldn’t retaliate in N. America. That’s no longer the case — plus, the militant Islamists have added some more friendly regimes in the mid-east, thanks, in large part, to Obama.
