After censoring transcripts of the 911 call made by the Orlando terrorist mass murderer to redact references to ISIS and thereby white-out his motivation for the killings—to wage Islamic jihad—President Barack Obama’s Justice Department reversed its position Monday, releasing a transcript that actually names the terrorist leaders and organizations that inspired the killer.
The DOJ originally claimed the redaction of history was meant to prevent inspiring other would-be terrorists—but that’s plainly a whitewash. Since day one, Obama has been utterly loath to even name the ideology that drives 9/11 hijackers and suicide bombers and terrorist murderers, let alone do anything to confront them.
Instead of considering how their own slavish devotion to political correctness might have empowered and emboldened these terrorist extremists, Obama and his Democrat enablers try to deflect criticism by attacking the Second Amendment freedoms Americans rely on to protect themselves and their families. That’s outrageous.
