Fox News contributor Allen West's suggestion that President Obama's handling of Russia, Vladimir Putin and Crimea were responsible for the Fort Hood shootings last week was not just outrageous. It was voted THE MOST OUTRAGEOUS Fox News quote of the week last week by our readers.
In case you've forgotten, West appeared on the Hannity show the night of the shootings and said the following:
I believe also we have a civilian leadership that does not want to recognize that the enemy exists. You know, you look at what is happening in the Crimea when the president says that Vladimir Putin is “operating from a position of weakness.” So if you don’t want to admit that there’s evil, if you don’t want to admit that there’s an enemy, then you don’t have the right type of security protocols in place.
