San Bernardino: Did Obama Tell NSC and FBI to Downplay Terror Angle?

Hat tip Daily Caller

A source has told Daily Caller that when the San Bernardino shooting took place, President Obama instructed the National Security Council and the FBI to downplay the Islamic terrorist angle.

This is hardly surprising if true. It is part of the pattern Obama has set for 7 years ever since he entered the White House.

Once police entered the site of the San Bernadino massacre they got enough information to set their sights on the Redlands address where Syed Farook and Tashfeen Malik resided. By the time the two killers were both shot to death in a police shootout, it was clear to law enforcement what this was. Farook's name was picked up by someone monitoring a police scanner and eventually, he was officially identified. The FBI subsequently announced that this was a terrorism case. Meanwhile, Attorney General Loretta Lynch has been stressing her concern over Islamophobia. As far as she, Obama and White House press spokesman Josh Earnest are concerned, the talking points are that there is no evidence that they were part of a larger terrorist cell-whatever that means. Oh yes. Obama is screaming for more gun control.

I have a lot of faith in the FBI and its director, James Comey. They are over-stretched and doing yeoman work under impossible circumstances, Yet, they are hampered by a president who acts like he doesn't care how many Americans are killed by Islamic terrorists right here in the US. As for the new attorney general, the book is still out on her. She was respected during her tenure as US Attorney for the Eastern District of New York (Brooklyn). She is certainly an improvement over the corrupt Eric Holder. Yet, we will have to see how she performs under the direction of Obama.

The next year cannot pass quickly enough until Barack Obama is out of office. I believe the correct term would be criminal negligence.
