Once again Obama goes on another trip and something major happens — like a terrorist attack — to overshadow his trip. No, it does not derail his plans or the trip, he goes on in spite of it. Party on!
Seen at a baseball game after making a short statement about Brussels, Obama got right into full swing of doing the wave with Castro in a photo op. Then he skittles off to Argentina, again making a short reference to the terrorism in Brussels. In Cuba he called it the scourge of terrorism. Very clever wording but it is the scourge of Islamic terrorism.
Now news comes out that ISIS bombing numbers again declined in February.
The U.S. and its allies last month dropped the fewest bombs on Islamic State targets in Iraq and Syria since June, even though defense officials say the campaign to defeat the terrorist group has been accelerating.
U.S.-led forces dropped 2,054 munitions last month, down from 2,694 in January and 3,139 in December, according to Air Force data.
The U.S. has dropped fewer munitions per sortie against Islamic State targets than in any operation since the Cold War ended because this campaign “has been extremely difficult to prosecute” Harmer said.
As of next year, hopefully we will not have a Muslim Spokesperson-in-Chief in the WH. Wouldn’t it be novel to take terrorism seriously rather than make excuses for it? Wouldn’t it be nice if every WH trip or photo-op was not accompanied by some disaster; and another lecture of Obama’s was not followed by events to the contrary?
