Obama Terror Attack Quote SLAMMED By The Right – The political right has been Obama’s case for stating that he believed that the country could “absorb” another terrorist attack much in the same way that the country was able to absorb the attacks on September 11th, 2001 and move on to become a stronger and better country. Of course, in the same statement Obama said that we absolutely have to do everything in our power to defend an attack of that magnitude, but the political right does not seem to want to pay attention to that half of the statement.
The report with Obama’s comments first appeared in the Washington Post on September 22nd.
The information was reportedly in a new Bob Woodward book titled “Obama’s Wars,” which claims that the President has been bombarded with threats of terrorist attacks and really has no idea what the opposition is planning.
The right wing media has portrayed the situation as if Obama is inviting the terrorist groups to attack us again, but really the situation was just misquoted. Can someone really trust what Bob Woodward has to say in his book anyway? He is known as a right wing (almost extremist) who has spoken out of turn on a number of different subjects. Now, with the popular political right talk shows on Fox News picking the story up, it will likely spread much faster than the White House first estimated that it would. It will be interesting to see how Obama responds to the allegations against him.
