    Obama was probably golfing, and in doing so snubbed the rest of the free world.

    You do care about the Presidents safety, right?
    You said the same about Bush after Katrina, no doubt.

    And besides, he didn't send anyone.

    Hmmm, did foreign leaders send their dignitaries to march with Bush after 9/11? C'man. Where were these "substantial dignitaries" from the Western World after the Boston Bombing?

    Hmmm, so what? The United States sent its official representative in France to the march. You know, the person whose job it is to just that:

    The United States was represented in the Paris march by Ambassador to France Jane Hartley.

    How can there be a history if this is the first time terrorism occurred for a clear freedom of speech issue? And whether it happened in the past or not is unimportant. The fact is that world leaders gathered together to demonstrate solidarity with those who died and their support for free speech. Do you get the point?

    Instead Obama said this.“The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam”

    He has made his position quite clear with this earlier statement at the UN and by not attending and not even releasing a statement immediately after the Hebedo massacre occurred, doubled down. He was certainly not this reluctant to discuss Treyvon Martin or the goings on in Ferguson. Has he bothered to make a statement yet about Boko Haram in Africa? If he has I think we can safely say it was not the real Islam.

    An incredible piece!! Holder was even in Paris at the time!

    And this is too much!
    Speaking from Paris, Holder said in a series of interviews with the Sunday morning news shows in Washington that investigators at this point don't have "any credible information" to determine which terrorist group was responsible for the attacks in Paris.
    That matters now??

    Good grief, I wanted you to try and play this argument because it's just clear how partisan your stance on this issue is. It's almost like you've never heard of Theo Van Gogh's murder. Here, educate yourself:

    Theo van Gogh (film director) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Van Gogh was murdered by Mohammed Bouyeri while cycling to work on 2 November 2004 at about 9 o'clock in the morning, in front of the Amsterdam East borough office (stadsdeelkantoor), on the corner of the Linnaeusstraat and Tweede Oosterparkstraat (5221′32.22″N 455′34.74″E).[7] The killer shot Van Gogh eight times with an HS2000 handgun. Bouyeri was also on a bicycle and fired several bullets, hitting Van Gogh and two bystanders. Wounded, Van Gogh ran to the other side of the road and fell to the ground on the cycle lane. According to eyewitnesses, Van Gogh's last words were "Don't do it, don't do it." or "Have mercy, have mercy, don't do it, don't do it."[8] Bouyeri walked up to Van Gogh, who was on the ground, and calmly shot him several more times at close range.[9][10]
    2008 Danish embassy bombing in Islamabad - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    The 2008 Danish embassy bombing was an attack on the Danish embassy in Islamabad, Pakistan on 2 June 2008. The suspected suicide car bombing in the parking lot of the embassy took place at around 12:10 pm (UTC+5), killing at least five and wounding many more. The Danish national security intelligence agency PET concluded that al-Qaeda was behind the attack.[2] Al-Qaeda claimed responsibility for the attack on 5 June 2008. The attack was confirmed to be an answer to the reprinting of Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten's Muhammed cartoons in February 2006, as well as the presence of Danish troops in Afghanistan.[3][4]
    Are you going to answer the question now? Or are you going to try and avoid answering it once more? So again, is there a history of US politicians marching after terrorist attacks where free speech is at the centerpoint? The Danish embassy was attacked because of the Mohammed Cartoons. Theo Van Gogh was murdered for his movie Obsession. Where was the US president then? Was he marching?
