This is finally it. Obama is more delusional and a bigger pathological liar that Hillary Clinton.
The noise was dubbed into the video below as you can hear the cheering but not observe the men and women in uniform creating it.
In a speech at MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa, Florida on Tuesday, the soon to be former commander-in-chief touted what he deems to be his national security accomplishments.
At one point in the speech, Obama claimed that during his tenure no foreign terrorist organization “has successfully planned and executed an attack on our homeland.”
If Obama is selling it, you know he’s lying.
“We should take great pride in the progress we’ve made over the last eight years,” Obama declared. “No foreign terrorist organization has successfully planned and executed an attack on our homeland.”
The declaration was met with tepid applause among service members, many of whom simply stared back at him.
The reason such a claim is difficult to respond to enthusiastically is the grim reality of what has transpired over the last eight years: radical Islamic terrorists, most of them inspired by foreign entities, particularly ISIS, having “successfully planned and executed” attacks on innocent people on American soil:
the Ft. Hood rampage; the Boston Marathon bombing; the execution of two NYPD officers; the attack in Garland, Texas; the murder of four military servicemen in Chattanooga, Tennessee; the San Bernardino attack; the Pulse Nightclub massacre; the NYC Bomber; and just last week, the Ohio State jihadist. (Here’s a complete list of the radical Islamic terror attacks on U.S. soil since Obama first took office in 2009.)
Obama’s attempt to dismiss such so-called “lone wolf” attacks, despite the role radical groups like ISIS play in fueling and directing them, is a part of his larger attempt to portray the War on Terror as a great success under his regime.
The reality here and abroad suggests otherwise.
