Obama offered a statement on the beheading of aid worker, Peter Kassig:
Obama and Cair condemn evil act
Tech Times | November 17, 2014
“While ISIL revels in the slaughter of innocents, including Muslims, and is bent only on sowing death and destruction, Abdul-Rahman was a humanitarian who worked to save the lives of Syrians injured and dispossessed by the Syrian conflict,” Obama says. “While ISIL exploits the tragedy in Syria to advance their own selfish aims, Abdul-Rahman was so moved by the anguish and suffering of Syrian civilians that he traveled to Lebanon to work in a hospital treating refugees.”
And Cair issued a statement:
“Just as we have denounced previous killings of innocent civilians by the ISIS terrorist group, we condemn the barbaric murder of Peter Kassig and once again repudiate the anti-Islamic ideology that produces such brutality,” says CAIR in a statement. “We also offer our sincere condolences to Mr. Kassig’s family and loved ones.”

That was a wonderful statement. Obama unwittingly outed his own political strategy. He said “ISIL exploits the tragedy in Syria to advance their own selfish aims,” and Obama exploits tragedy to advance his own selfish aims. It’s his M/O, even if creating tragedy.
I must have missed where ISIS has an “anti-Islamic ideology” which is causing this barbarism. That would require the willing suspension of disbelief. When did ISIS ever renounce or criticize Islam? Cair has the credibility of a skunk in the middle of the road.
