State Department Claims Islamic State Murder of American Has Nothing to Do With America, Does Not Reflect Badly on Islam
At least the Obama Regime lightens the gathering gloom with laughter provided by Deputy State Department Spokesclown Marie Harf, who responded to the execution of James Foley in characteristic comic form.
Harf spoke after President Obama told the nation that “governments and peoples across the Middle East” should come together in a “common effort to extract this cancer, so that it does not spread.” He then went golfing.
That left sophomoric underlings to explain US foreign policy in response to this act of war by the rising Islamic State. Barfs Ms. Harf:
“I think ISIL wants to make this about the United States and our actions. And I think what the President was trying to say was that this is not about the United States and what we do. This is about countries in the region coming together to fight a shared threat, and this is not about us.”
The explicit purpose of Foley’s execution was to influence American policy regarding Iraq.
With adolescents like Obama, everything is always someone else’s problem – including the nightmarish mayhem that inevitably followed when he prematurely withdrew our forces from Iraq.
If we are all lucky, it will take ISIS at least a few years to subdue its local resistance and use Iraq’s oil wealth to acquire nuclear weapons with which to vaporize major US cities. By then Obama will be out of office, and once again it will be someone else’s problem.
Harf confirmed that Obama has no particular plans to deal with the increasingly alarming situation. Also, she predictably reminded us that the Islamic State does not represent Islam, as did Obama in his exceedingly brief address. According to official doctrine, Islam is gentle and good no matter what its adherents do in its name. Adhering to this preposterous lie is far more important than keeping Americans safe from Islamic terrorists from the point of view of our ideologically deranged ruling class.
