"I know that the trust that binds us has been strained, and I know that strain is shared in many places where the Muslim faith is practiced,” Obama said in a speech today to the Turkish parliament in Ankara. “Let me say this as clearly as I can: the United States is not at, and will never be, at war with Islam."
Why am I always reminded of my Orwell when this guy speaks?
Pres. Obama received a tepid response from the Turk Parliament, especially when he reminded the Turks that they murdered 1.5 million Armenian back in 1915. It was like U.S. cowboys and American Indians, or something.
Obama then went on to an oblique bash of the hated Boooshitler when Boooshitler encouraged a war against Muslims after 9/11.
You're right. Boooshitler went out of his way to emphasize friendship with Muslims, but the lap dog sycophants in the media seem to like Obama's narrative much better.
The Armenians back here in the U.S. of A. are ticked at Pres. Obama because they think his comments to their ancestor's executioners were too tepid.
"President Barack Obama’s delicate dance around a highly sensitive regional issue in Turkey on Monday irked a small but influential American political constituency, which is accusing him of falling “far short” of a campaign promise."He ain't exactly 'mr. confrontation', guys. (Insert 'political promise' slur here)
But someone was planning confrontation. Overly so. Like a game of 'Clue' gone bad.
Syrian Man with Al-Jazeera Press Pass Plots to Kill Pres. Obama with Knife in Ankara.
"The suspect was arrested last Friday in Istanbul, where he had been permanently living for a number of years. After his arrest, al-Watan said he confessed to having planned Obama's murder and that in case he failed, there were three other accomplices that would carry out the assassination."
A knife?? Seriously?!
Fortunately, Turkish authorities thwarted his dastardly plan, and two people are in custody.
