In a sit-down interview with Jake Tapper of ABC News last night, Barack Obama actually makes excuses for the terrorist who shot and killed 12 of his fellow soldiers! Obama seems to be blaming the military for this guy's actions.
Tapper asked Obama asking what separated the Fort Hood shooting from acts of terrorism. In response to the question, Obama struggled to distance Nidal Hasan's actions from terrorism despite the fact that all signs point to the fact that he was a terrorist!!
"Well, look, we -- we have seen, in the past, rampages of this sort. And in a country of 300 million people, there are going to be acts of violence that are inexplicable. Even within the extraordinary military that we have -- and I think everybody understands how outstanding the young men and women in uniform are under the most severe stress -- there are going to be instances in which an individual cracks. I think the questions that we're asking now and we don't have yet complete answers to is, is this an individual who's acting in this way or is it some larger set of actors? You know, what are the motivations? Those are all questions that I think we have to ask ourselves. Until we have these answers buttoned down, I'd rather not comment on it."
So when Obama says "a larger set of actors" does he mean the military is to blame for this guy going rambo?
When the white Cambridge officer arrested his friend, Obama called the officer "stupid." But Nidal Hasan gets a pass because he was stressed out!? He didn't even go off to war yet! How was he stressed Mr. Obama?
I wonder if Obama would have felt the same way if the guy wasn't a Muslim extremist? Obama seems to be apologizing to Hasan for the military stressing him out. Is he going to visit the shooter in the hospital and apologize to him personally!
