Today, FoxNews.com posted a video it called, “Vet: Obama showing weakness in confronting radical Islam.” But the vet in the video never talked about President Obama.
The only reference made to President Obama by Iraq war veteran Nick Powers was one that included President George W. Bush, too.
Not that the hosts didn’t open the door for Powers to go after Obama. Co-host Brian Kilmeade "asked" in his introduction to the discussion, “Are terrorists more emboldened than ever before?”
Co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck asked Powers the first question: “You’ve seen the enemy. When you heard what happened this week, specifically yesterday with the hostage takeover in Paris and too many losing their lives there to terror, what was your reaction?”
“Pure frustration,” Powers said. He continued with his only kinda-sorta reference to Obama:
Powers: It just makes me think of the past 14 years that we’ve spent fighting terrorist groups and how the rules and regulations and political correctness especially has caused us to be tied up. Our hands are tied behind our backs when we’re fighting an organization that has no regards to human life and they will do whatever it takes to get their message across.
…You have to exterminate this scum.
We’ll give the worker bee who came up with the title for this segment the benefit of the doubt and say that maybe he or she didn’t have time to actually watch the video or misunderstood it - as opposed to just lying about or deliberately distorting what Powers said. Which makes the error only slightly better in my book.
But one thing is clear: FoxNews.com would never have made the title of this video about Obama’s “weakness” if that worker bee didn’t know for sure that that’s what the boss likes.
Watch it below, from this morning’s Fox & Friends.

France has some issues to deal with, such as addressing the ghetto of Muslim communities they’ve allowed to fester in their land; allowing areas to be void of public civil law? I’m not sure wtf they are thinking, but I have a feeling things are going to change soon.
As long as these Muslims see their religious brothers and sisters being slaughtered by the West all across the Middle East, you can expect these cells to fester and explode. We have them here too, but we refer to them as “militias” and “survivalists”. Fester and explode…and take a half dozen innocent souls with you on your way out. Pathetic.
