The Patriot Post® · Obama Tells UN How Great He Is While Tweaking America
Last year, Barack Obama took a victory lap at the UN, announcing, “Today, all of our troops have left Iraq. Next year, an international coalition will end its war in Afghanistan, having achieved its mission of dismantling the core of al-Qaida that attacked us on 9/11.” This year, as the U.S. conducts airstrikes in Iraq and Syria, Obama told the same body, “I have made it clear that America will not base our entire foreign policy on reacting to terrorism. Instead we have waged a focused campaign on al-Qaida and its associated forces.” On the subject of Islam he stated, “And when it comes to America and Islam, there is no us and them, there is only us – because millions of Muslim Americans are part of the fabric of our country.” Astoundingly, Obama said he understands why other nations criticize America for calling them out on violence because of violence within our own borders. He said, “In a summer marked by instability in the Middle East and Eastern Europe, I know the world also took notice of the small American city of Ferguson, Missouri – where a young man was killed, and a community was divided. So, yes, we have our own racial and ethnic tensions.” Does anyone besides Obama believe that the shooting of a violent black man in Ferguson (currently the subject of a DoJ investigation), is tantamount to the violence being committed by ISIL? This president is an embarrassment to his country.
