4/5/16 Ignoring Reality
Last week, French President Francois Hollande spoke of American and French cooperation on fighting terrorism.
Here’s what’s happening behind the headlines.
The White House posted video of Hollande’Â™s remarks.
At one point, the French president said “[W]e’re also well aware that the roots of terrorism — Islamist terrorism — is in Syria and in Iraq.”
The actual words — Islamist terrorism — in Hollande’s original French and the translator’s English were deleted from the audio track.
[Update: After a public uproar, the White House restored the video with the complete audio track to include the previously missing words “Islamist terrorism” as spoken by both Hollande and the English translator.]
This is absolutely crystal clear. The Obama Administration is engaging in a propaganda campaign to pretend thereâ€™s no such thing as Islamic terrorism.
Behind the Headlines was the first to point-out that the FBIâ€™s new website on domestic extremist groups ignored Islamic terrorism. Only weeks before the website was launched Islamic terrorists slaughtered 14 in San Bernardino.
Itâ€™s an insult to American victims of Islamic terrorism to pretend it doesnâ€™t exist.
