Obama Knew Isis Was Going to Behead James Foley as He Partied and Golfed
Hillary Clinton famously asked in a campaign ad during the primary for the 2008 presidential election if Barack Obama would be ready to answer a phone call at 3am — the answer is no, but not for the reasons Hillary envisioned. It’s probably because he was too drunk. It turns out that Obama knew that James Foley, an American journalist being held captive by ISIS, was going to be beheaded, and spent his time partying and golfing in response.
ISIS had recently threatened to kill U.S. journalist James Foley to avenge airstrikes the United States has conducted in Iraq, a senior U.S. official told ABC News.
The White House had been aware of the threat prior to the release of a video Tuesday night that appears to show the beheading of Foley and warns that militants will carry out a similar act against U.S. journalist Steven Sotloff, who went missing in August, the official said.
President Obama was briefed on the video aboard Air Force One Tuesday night as he returned to Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts, from Washington to resume his August vacation. The White House said the intelligence community is working to authenticate the gruesome video that allegedly shows Foley’s beheading.
So our president knew that there was an active threat to an American’s life, and responded by going on vacation — and when he found out that threat was carried out, he continued on his vacation as usual. And somehow, the media is still covering for him, even as he golfs and drinks and plays after one of their own was brutally slaughtered for the world to see.
