    From the speech, paragraph 11:
    As best as I can gather from MMC, he's upset that Obama...like pretty much nearly everyone else...calls them ISIL or ISIS instead of "Al Qaeda". Why that bothers him about Obama, when I can't really think of any political leader or really any person I've read or heard routinely refer to ISIL/ISIS as "Al Qaeda" is beyond me.

    Okay okay, here is a Leader and his Condemning of an Enemy. Tell BO to take notice.


    The king of Jordan sent out this badass photo in response to ISIS.....



    Jordan's King Abdullah II, a former commander of his country's special forces , angrily vowed to bombard the Islamic State until his military runs "out of fuel and bullets".....snip~

    The king of Jordan sent out this badass photo in response to ISIS


    Alright.....I can admit that BO peep just can't pull off the same type of clout.

    That's due to you usually not listening to those in the Military or Intel to much but I wont fault ya for it......but I think BO's failed policies and entire approach to the issue is major factor. But you wouldn't know much about that Right?

    We wouldn't want you to get that part confused or lose anything in translation either.


    Oh btw.....you didn't forget BO said they were not Islamic, Correct? Did you need the repeat with that?

    I think the reference is to various ACTS the President seems reluctant to identify as terrorist driven. Much like the terrorist act that took place at Ft Hood in 2009, and others, the obvious seems difficult to admit by the President

    There is no equivalency....It's a false narrative that once again leads some to believe that Obama protects, and runs cover for terrorists.
    One is tempted that God does not condone lying either, but he's perfected a new art form..,..and I need remind him of James "do not seek to be teachers in great numbers for we all stumble in many ways..." But then he never stumbles....

    Considering that this is a highly biased accounting, it is revealing on several layers.

    One, it lessens the impact of "crusades and Slavery" the most contentious of his remarks and diverts attention to the Dalai Lama and Obama's so generous treatment in having one of the most revered religious leaders seated next to an aide. Where was this support seven years ago, when Britain, Canada, France and others all granted the Lama such courtesies and more?

    second, he has not lost sight of the fact that he is his own idol, lecturing America on theology...

    President Barack Obama on Thursday condemned those who seek to use religion as a rationale for carrying out violence around the world, declaring that "no god condones terror."
    But immediately draws the comparison to Christians, and slavery by Christians......

    None of this is uniting. None of this reassures a nation at war that the enemyh is being addressed, probably because the enemy is losing. None of this brings a torn nation, divided on "enemies, traitors, jihadists, and terrorists" in the Republican benches; it is far too late in this late night drunken binge of a presidency to start moralizing on slandering the enemy. There is not one issue where his handling has brought progress, but division, illegal aliens becomes an amnesty that is not amnesty and his reaction to the insidious evil of burning a man alive is to "remain clam and vote for me", and remember we have been bad guys as recently a one thousand years ago.

    The enemy is today, this minute. Where he had two wars going when he came into office, he now has four with these not-Islamic terrorists gaining ground in seven.

    Bringing up faults of 150 and 1,000 years ago helps unify a nation at wear how exactly/

    Didn't forget that. Hell, pretty sure I've mentioned that in this thread (may've been the other on the similar topic). I've spoken negatively about that statement when it was first made as well. That's an entirely different notion however than suggesting he "can't say their name". But nice job bringing up an entirely different point and attempting to beat up that strawman.

    And I'll go with apparently my intereactions with the military and intel communities is simply different than yours. While there are definitely cross overs at points between Al-Qaeda and ISIS, and the ideology behind both are largely the same, by and large to my understanding they are two seperate entities that share some similar goals. Suggesting ISIS IS literally Al-Qaeda to my understanding would be akin to suggesting the Tea Party Movement or the NRA ARE the Republican Party, as opposed to groups that share some similar views and goals and may have individuals who belong to both or may work together at times
