Seems calling Terror as Terror is too much to ask of Obama.
Nowhere in his UN address does President Obama clearly express anger at the attack on American sovereignty as such. Nowhere does he show outrage for the desecration of the American flag as the world saw in Cairo and elsewhere. Nowhere does he challenge the Muslim Brotherhood to stop playing two-faced games, denouncing the riots on the one hand and egging them on on the other. When Obama does describe them as attacks on America, he quickly moves to thanking other governments for their help or connecting the attacks to an “assault on the ideals upon which the United Nations was founded.”
This president tends to universalize and preach when a clear, brief statement of anger, resolve and clarity would do. How about just being outraged that on your watch, Mr. President, America came under attack again by the same forces that have attacked us relentlessly for the past several decades? How about saying to them, “Enough is enough” and serving notice that America bitter and unstoppable foe of anyone who attacks us, anywhere, anytime, for any reason?
Is that too much to ask?
