Critics say there is no cohesive U.S. strategy to fight the war on terror because the White House refuses to acknowledge that the battle is against “Islamic extremism.”
Fox News host Martha MacCallum confronted State Department deputy spokesperson Marie Harf Monday over the administration’s tortured explanations designed to skirt the specific words.
“Why is it so hard to say?,” MacCallum asked.
“It’s not hard to say, but it’s not the only kind of extremist we face” Harf began with indignation, the standard White House response on the subject.
“What other forms of extremism are particularly troubling and compelling to you right now?” MacCallum asked, trying to get past the talking points.
With inane evasiveness, Harf told MacCallum that “there are a number of people out there who want to kill other people in the name of a variety of causes.”
Taking the time to explain to Harf what she seemed to be painfully blindly avoiding, MacCallum tried to educate her on how the Obama administration has made the U.S. look like idiots with no leadership against global terrorism.
Where are our leaders? MacCallum wanted to know.
Still not penetrating the brick wall of BS, MacCallum ran through the list of recent global attacks and asked Harf, “Don’t you see a common thread?”
“I think that’s a little bit overly simplistic, to be honest with you , Martha,” Harf answered.
Sounding progressively more ignorant, Harf opened herself up to more schooling from MacCallum.
