Report: Obama Told NSC And FBI To ‘Downplay’ Terrorist Angle Of San Bernardino
The FBI has taken heat for failing to immediately classify the San Bernardino shootings as terrorism, but a new report shows that FBI reluctance could have been due to external pressure from the White House.
A source told Jack Murphy of SOFREP that the FBI instantly believed the shooting, which left 14 dead, to be a clear act of terrorism. The White House, however, didn’t feel the same way and quickly moved in to squash the terror classification.
And why not. it worked for them on Benghazi? You might say they have plenty of experience. I guess Obama’s idea of fighting terrorism is fighting the labeling of it.
This source added that as soon as the shooting took place, Obama convened a meeting with the National Security Council and the heads of other federal enforcement agencies to discuss a public relations strategy. — more>
So that photo the WH had strewn across media of Obama meeting with his advisers in the Situation Room was a deceptive photo-op. The picture we never saw from Benghazi he makes sure we see now. Except he was pushing back on calling it terrorism.
Obama’s idea for a P/R strategy meeting was brainstorming to oppose a terrorism narrative. We actually made jokes about that but now it is confirmed that’s exactly what he was doing. It was self-serving for Obama to manage and strategize the story. That is what the situation room is to him, a political strategy room. Funny how even the pictures are deceiving with Obama. It validates my lack of trust for any actions of BHO as CiC.
What a self-centered creature of politics and narcissism. It’s a pathetic state of reality.
