Why Did the White House Just Humiliate Loretta Lynch?

Idiotic: That’s the only word for the Obama administration’s move to scrub references to Islam or ISIS from the transcripts of Orlando terrorist Omar Mateen’s calls.

Under an avalanche of ridicule, the Justice Department on Monday relented and released the full transcripts. But what was the point? Everyone already knew that he’d pledged allegiance to ISIS and its “caliph.”

Fine: President Obama wants to make this about gun control, not terrorism — but ham-handed editing only calls attention to what you’re deleting, and to Obama’s peevish rules against uttering terms like “radical Islam.”

Just look at the redactions:

Mateen: “I pledge of allegiance to [omitted]. “I pledge allegiance to [omitted] may God protect him [in Arabic], on behalf of [omitted].”

All the omissions did was make Team Obama look determined to keep its head in the sand about the nature of the enemy.

Even the “explanations” sounded dumb. Here’s Attorney General Loretta Lynch on ABC’s “This Week”: “What we’re not going to do is further proclaim this man’s pledges of allegiance to terrorist groups, and further his propaganda.”

Further his propaganda? Seriously? The answer to Islamist jihad is to black out the words?

Lynch never did anything this absurd in all her years as US attorney here in New York, so you know the order came down from above.

It’s also idiocy déjà vu: Four years ago, Team Obama made then-UN Ambassador Susan Rice tour all the Sunday shows to blame the deadly Benghazi attack on an internet video, rather than on the terrorist plot they all knew it was. She looked a fool once the administration finally admitted the truth, just as Loretta Lynch does now.

It makes you wonder: Who at the White House feels compelled to send women of color out to humiliate themselves on national TV?

His father was Islamic, his mother was a radical anti-capitalist, his step-father was a believer in Islam also, and he was educated in Islamic schools in Indonesia before coming back to the USA as an undergraduate at Occidental U followed by deep emersion into progressivism at Harvard and Columbia. Despite these facts, he was elected to two terms as President of a country founded on Christian principles on the promise he was going to transform America. He sure as hell fulfilled his promise and we've paid dearly for it. The final payment will be made if Hillary is elected in November and the final nail will be driven into the coffin of a once great nation. GO TRUMP !!!

It just amazes me that our media and talking heads refuse to connect the dots when it comes to obama (small letter intended) and his regime. The man and his trusted right hand, Valerie Jarrett are Islamic sympathizers if not outright members of the cult. Everything they have done and continue to do point in that direction. When he campaigned on "changing our country" that's exactly what he meant - push down Christianity and bring up Islam. Some are not old enough to remember and it's probably not taught in our schools anymore, but during WWII German or Japanese sympathizers were jailed as traitors or deported.

"WHY" you ask ?... Well, if you suddenly find yourself at a "level" that far exceeds your abilities to properly function, and you're too arrogant and self-important to 'step back' and admit it (even to yourself), you are doomed to reveal your incompetence "to the world"... Such is the case of Loretta Lynch and Barak Obama as well as the rest of Obama's Administration and the "toadies & minions" who are ALWAYS fawning and grovelling around him and "licking his boots" ("Good riddance to bad garbage!" January 2017 can't come soon enough!).............

I'm SHOCKED to find myself agreeing with the NY Times...but they called it right...this was stupid and reinforces what Donald Trump has been saying all along that "Islamic terrorism" are words that Obama and his ilk refuse to utter...

Barney - I made the same mistake at first - assuming this was in the New York Slimes ----- but it's the Post.
