For 8 years, millions of Americans across the country couldn’t figure out why President Obama was so afraid to use the term “radical Islam”.

If we can’t properly identify our enemy then how are we going to defeat it?

Today, we are learning a little more about why the Obama Administration didn’t use the phrase.

From The Daily Caller:

A former Department of State official confessed Monday that the reason no one in the Obama administration referred to certain acts of terror as “radical Islam” is because they were scared of alienating Muslim allies.

In an op-ed written for The New York Times, Richard Stengel, who previously served as under secretary of state for public diplomacy and public affairs, said there was a very clear reason no one could–or did–label various acts of terror as the product of “radical Islam” and instead used the much less loaded term “violent extremism.”

Looks like the administration was scared to offend people.

That sums things up pretty well.  Feelings over facts.

  1. Barack Hussein Obama IS a Muslim. It will all come out soon, but his mission was to begin the destruction of America and her judeo-christian values. The bastard damn near succeeded. May his evil soul rot in Hell.

  2. It was more than just not wanting to “”hurt Muzzie feelings;” it was invoked not to hurt thin-skinned Obozo’s feelings and Islamist sentiments. He was a very active – and disgusting – traitor cell for the enemy.

    • So, he is the “Expert” on what is Islam ?? All of the murders and hundreds of thousands of killings, along with be-headings, and ripping at women’s bodies where they can never produce a child, burning and drowning people and throwing gays off of roofs of buildings – that is not Islam !! Plus they yell Alah Akbar – What is that ???? Obama is and has always been a pathological liar.

      .

    • Obama at the UN, when blaming Benghazi on the video: “The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam.” That is far beyond being sympathetic to hurting their feelings. That is a statement by a true believer. Also, what other “Christian” in the history of the world changed their name to a Muslim name? Any that I can think of who have changed their names did so after converting. I mean, it’s not like we didn’t have the signs for eight long years of who this person was and is. We have a traitorous press that are so radical and in the tank, they refused to report anything.

  3. So… they were afraid of alienating people who were helping them fight against radical Islamists.

    ….

    That’s really smart. Don’t alienate your allies. They’re your allies.

    • with allies like those I’d prefer we’d be enemies. Saudi Arabia spreads terrorism, funds universities so they are sympathetic to islam, builds mosques in every corner of the west, owns the American MSM, pays lip service to the war on terrorism while financing terrorism everywhere as it is the agenda of its salafist and wahabist rulers. You arent really smart.

        • lol? 11 Saudi nationals crashed 2 planes against WTC, bin Laden was Arab royalty, they behead their perceived enemies in a public square, almost every single mosque, most of them with terrorist ties were funded by the Saudis, formerly moderate bosnian and albanian muslims are being radicalized by saudi wahabis, what is it to laugh about, you damn stupid moron?

    • Uh, no. This proved that “moderate” Muslims really aren’t moderate and are sympathetic to the terrorists. It would be the same as not calling out the KKK because you don’t want to alienate white people. You would only do that if most white people were sympathetic to the KKK. Since that is NOT the case, and the KKK truly is a fringe group, they get called out.

  4. I don’t believe it, Obama is a Muslim and he is just following the Koran to infiltrate by whatever means necessary, especially lying.

  5. If “radical Islamists” are rare and totally different from “moderate Muslims” then why worry? Oh yea, because Muslims see the terrorists as part and parcel of Islam even if they themselves aren’t participating.

  6. For PC reasons? So, it wasn’t bc Obama himself was Muslim? Go lie elsewhere! How subtle trying to lie to us. We can see clear now!

  7. No it was because HE is a radical islamist asshole! trying to cover up for all the atrocities his fellow muslim have been inflicting on the world for hundreds of years.

  8. And now with the Donald saying the term “radical Islamic terrorism”, those Muslim countries have not even come to condemn him of it w/c means Obama must have been wrong about those fear of alienating those Muslim countries w/c further shows that he is a coward.
