There was another horrific, coordinated terrorist attack in Brussels by Obama’s JV team, ISIS. Bombs were detonated at both the Zaventem Airport and the Maelbeek train station located near the European Union headquarters.
Barack Obama, while delivering a speech in Cuba, did address the terrorist attack…for a full 51, emotionless seconds.
Obama began his remarks by asking the audience to “please indulge me” as he began with a few, and I do mean a few, words about the terrorist attack in Brussels.
Of course, he still refused to utter the words Islamic terrorism and alluded to his typical protectionism of Islam, but what should we expect from him at this point.
As is typical, Obama was emotionless in his remarks about this terrorist attack. Maybe if the terrorists had used a gun and he could have turned this into a push for gun control he would have been riled up. Maybe if the attacks had been done by white males then he would have had his best-outraged anger on full display.
But, this was a terrorist attack by Islamic terrorists, ISIS to be specific, so he just read some words off of a page before going into his prepared remarks which offered praise for Communist Cuba, whose dictators Raul and Fidel Castro rule with an iron fist and have murdered tens of thousands.
“The thoughts and prayers of the American people are with the people of Belgium and we stand in solidarity with them in condemning these outrageous attacks against innocent people,” Obama said. “We will do whatever is necessary to support our friend and ally, Belgium, in bringing to justice to those who are responsible.”
He said that the attack “is yet another reminder that the world must unite … regardless of nationality, or race, or faith in fighting against the scourge of terrorism.”
