FBI Director Jim Comey testified before the congressional committee Wednesday and it soon became clear that terror attacks taking place on US soil since Obama became president are not all lone wolf attacks.
Comey has been holding discussions with Internet providers about breaking the encryption of messages sent by terrorists. He couldn’t discuss the San Bernardino case because it’s under investigation but he did say something very interesting about the Garland, Texas case.
If you recall, in the Texas case, two terrorists went to Garland, Texas with the intention of killing participants and attendees at a Draw Mohammed cartoon contest held by Pamela Geller. The news was more about Pamela Geller who was harshly criticized for holding the contest.
The president was almost silent on the attempted mass killing. He went on a talk show and talked about Freddie Gray. Josh Earnest did say in a statement that free speech didn’t deserve death.
The initial statements said it was likely a “lone wolf” event and guns are a serious problem.
On Twitter, minutes prior to the attack, one of the gunmen posted “May Allah accept us as mujahideen” with the hashtag #texasattack. He wrote that both attackers had pledged allegiance to “Amirul Mu’mineen”, a likely reference to ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. The statements also requested others to follow an ISIS propagandist, Junaid Hussain, on Twitter. After the shooting, Hussain wrote: “Allahu Akbar!!!! 2 of our brothers just opened fire.”.
One of the attackers, Elton Simpson, “appears to have been part of a network of Islamic State adherents in several countries, including the group’s hub in Syria, who have encouraged attacks and highlighted the Texas event as a worthy target,” the New York Times wrote in May.
Little attention was paid to that.
ISIS took credit for the attack.
As it turns out, the morning of the attack, one of the gunman exchanged 109 messages with a terrorist overseas. Unfortunately, the FBI can’t encrypt the messages that were shared and don’t know to this day what was said in the communications.
Obama has been getting away with calling terror attacks lone wolf attacks, acts of gun violence, and crimes. When it’s obviously a terror attack, he ignores it or makes a week statement kicking and screaming. He got away with calling Ft. Hood a case of workplace violence and Chattanooga “heartbreaking”, adding his tired line, “we don’t have all the details yet.” In June 2009, Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad killed a soldier and wounded another at an Army recruiting center in Little Rock, Ark. Planned attacks on centers were foiled in Baltimore in December 2010 and Seattle in June 2011. No one can forget the jihadist beheading of a woman in Oklahoma which ended up being just a case of mental illness.
All in all, there have been at least 21 provable terrorist attacks on US soil under Barack Obama though he has not acknowledged most of them. His response is gun control and Islamophobia.
While Obama and his minions in the press have been insisting that the real threat is climate change and so-called attacks on Muslims, we have been attacked again-and-again with more than 80 terrorists attempting attacks arrested on US soil in the past year, at the rate of more than one a week.
At the same time, Obama has claimed “we are safe”, we need to have gun control, and ISIS isn’t an “existential threat.” Tell that to the fourteen dead and 21 wounded in San Bernardino. Tell it to the children of the dead soldiers at Ft. Hood, tell it to the family of Colleen Hufford. The freak who beheaded Colleen and tried to behead another woman had jihadist rants all over his Facebook page and attended a sketchy mosque but he went on trial for murder when he should have been sent to GITMO.
It’s time for Barack Obama to be called out.
