Obama and his administration refuse to see this for what it is, it was a “Kill Americans” killing, it was a “Radical Islam” killing…. Not to hard to figure out… I cannot wait until we get a leader who knows how to lead… If Clinton wins in 2016, this country is in trouble… Deep, deep trouble…
After five days, President Obama finally today ordered “that the flag of the United States shall be flown at half-staff at the White House and upon all public buildings and grounds” and at other official federal locations until sunset on Saturday to honor the five victims of Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez’s murder spree in Chattanooga, Tennessee last Thurday.
Though the White House will never admit it, Congress shamed the President into doing what he did by unilaterally choosing to fly the Capitol flag at half-mast earlier this morning. Obama’s order referred to “the victims of the senseless acts of violence.” Sadly, the more we learn, the more we understand that Abdulazeez didn’t see it as “senseless” at all. Yet he, those who work for him in the Executive Branch, and the press continue to pretend.
Earlier today, the Associated Press was running with the idea that Abdulazeez was depressed and “fought drug and alcohol abuse.”
I suppose that’s an improvement over Monday evening, when the AP (HT Patterico) feigned complete confusion:
