Obama Again Refuses to Properly Blame Islam for Terrorism

-By Warner Todd Huston

Before the last act of terror was over in Paris, President Obama rushed out to make a short address to the nation to give America’s response to the outrage. But the President somehow forgot to mention anything about just what caused these attacks: Islamic terrorism.

Obama began his short address saying, “We stand prepared and ready to provide whatever assistance that the government and the people of France need to respond.”

The President told the nation and the people of France, “It’s an attack not just on Paris, not just on the people of France, but on all of humanity. He added that “the bonds of liberté, egalité, and fraternité are not only values that the French people care so deeply about but they are values we share.”

“Those who think that they can terrorize the people of France or the values that they stand for are wrong,” Obama insisted.

Obama, though was reluctant to get too specific about the attacks. “We don’t yet know all of the details of what happened,” Obama cautioned. He then skirted any further discussion of the attacks.

The president didn’t take any questions and quickly left the room upon the conclusion of his comments. But he never used the words Islam or Muslim or ISIS or any other more specific language to describe the attacks.

But it should be no surprise. Not only did Obama say ISIS is contained and was no threat to the west only the day before the attacks in Paris, but he is also proposing that we bring in hundreds of thousands of these ISIS supporters from Syria disguised as “refugees.”

Clearly Obama’s goal is to destroy the U.S. and kill Americans.

Here is a full transcript of Obama’s comments.

I just want to make a few brief comments about the attacks across Paris tonight.

Once again we’ve seen an outrageous attempt to terrorize innocent civilians. This is an attack not just on Paris, it’s an attack not just on the people of France, but this is an attack on all of humanity and the universal values that we share.

We stand prepared and ready to provide whatever assistance that the government and the people of France need to respond.

France is our oldest ally. The French people has stood shoulder-to-shoulder with the United States time and again. And we want to be very clear that we stand with them in the fight against terrorism and extremism.

Paris itself represents the timeless values of human progress. Those that think they can terrorize the people of France or the values that they stand for are wrong.

The American people draw strength from the French people’s commitment to life, liberty, pursuit of happiness. We are reminded in this time of tragedy that the bonds of liberté, egalité, and fraternité are not only values that the French people care so deeply about but they are values we share. And those values are going to endure far beyond any act of terrorism or the hateful vision of those who perpetrated the crimes this evening.

We’re going to do whatever it takes to work with the French people and with nations around the world to bring these terrorists to justice and to go after any terrorist networks that go after our people.

We don’t yet know all of the details of what is happened, we have been in contact with French officials to communicate our deepest condolences to the families of those who have been killed. To offer our prayers and thoughts to those who’ve been wounded. We have offered our full support to them. The situation is still unfolding. I’ve chosen not to call President Hollande at this time because my expectation is that he’s very busy at the moment.

I actually by coincidence was talking to him earlier today in preparation for the G20 meeting. But I am confident that I’ll be in direct communication with him in the next few days and we’ll be coordinating in any ways that they think are helpful in the investigation of what’s happened.

This is a heartbreaking situation and obviously those of us here in the United States know what it’s like, we’ve gone through these kinds of episodes ourselves. And whenever these kinds of attacks happened we’ve always been able to count on the French people to stand with us. They have been an extraordinary counterterrorism partner and we intend to be there with them in that same fashion.

I’m sure that in the days ahead we’ll learn more about exactly what happened and my teams will make sure that we are in communication with the press to provide you accurate information. I don’t want to speculate at this point in terms of who is responsible for this. It appears that there may still be live activity and dangers that are taking place as we speak. And so until we know from French officials that the situation is under control and we have more information about it I don’t want to speculate.
