I watched the speech til I got mad as hell, and started cussing at the tv.
Anyone catch the 'Muslims are a part of the American family' remark?
He'd never make such a comment about Christians.
Then his comments about 'buying friends' with is foreign aid 'deal'.
Oh and then that 1 trillion over a decade for the 'war on terror' which is about 100 billion a year where the US government blows more cash studying
cow farts, and shrimps on tread mills.
Peace in the ME with a two state solution? No 2000 years says otherwise.
Throwing Clinton under the bus with 'missile strikes'.
Rehashing 'Bush's war' and how 'his way' is the best.
Then there is the mention of the Fort Hood shooting and 'domestic' terrorism where as Fort Hood was classified as 'work place violence'.
He was trying to have it both ways, and again how he isn't responsible for nothing pretty much blaming congress for drone strikes where the reality is
as the commander in chief it is his say.
Obama can do whatever the hell he wants to detain or kill, and blame foreign citizens, and domestic because he is never accountable for nothing.
That was one long winded speech that really did not say to much.
Given the fact that Islam or a more specific version of it is a mixture of politics, and religion as most ME countries are religious theocracies.
They really can't be separated like he thinks they can be.
He sure did give a lot of terrorist history which shoots everything he said down radicalized Islam has been fighting a never ending war with the
Past 40 years is proof enough cited by his evidence he really does think not calling it a war, buying 'friends' it is magically going to go away.
He pretty much said he has the right to kill whoever he wants as long as 'congress' signs off on it which means he get's to blame them.
And Gitmo in my book out right murder of people like those 4 Americans he killed is more barbaric that some 'prison' in Cuba.
Funny how people always bring up Gitmo, but never bring up the Japanese internment.
So in reality he wants to go back to a pre 911 mentality that didn't work and exploded on 9-11..
This guy always ties to have it both ways.
The war on terror is a political war based on religious beliefs.
