As with most things his administration does, I’m sure Obama will be shocked when he reads in the newspapers about the State Dept. declaring a $10 million bounty on the head of what it calls an “enemy of Islam.”
The United States condemns in the strongest possible terms the cowardly attacks today in Baghdad. These attacks were aimed at families celebrating the Eid al-Fitr holiday that marks the end of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan. The terrorists who committed these acts are enemies of Islam and a shared enemy of the United States, Iraq, and the international community.
Obama’s representatives tell us we don’t take sides in religious wars, but somehow it’s okay to issue a State Department “fatwa” against the enemies of Islam?
And remember this gem from Obama’s address to the UN Assembly just months after the Benghazi, Libya terrorist attack on 9/11 (which the White House knew was not caused by a “slanderous” YouTube video): “The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam.”
The State Department’s Wanted memo goes on to say that the US government is offering a reward for information that will lead to the death or capture of one of the terrorists taking credit for the attack in Iraq. It especially relishes that the size of the reward is second only to that we offer over Ayman al-Zawahiri, the head of al-Qaeda!
Where were all the “Wanted” posters for the killing of Christians in such idyllic Middle Eastern nations as Egypt and Syria over the past few years? What about strongly condemning the terrorists who carried out Benghazi and putting a huge public bounty on their heads? Oh, but they just slandered and killed some Christians, right?
