Krauthammer disgusted with Obama word games on terror: ‘It doesn’t wash’


While the Obama administration continues its six-year word game to convince Americans that Islamic terrorists are in defeat, men with guns are remaking the political geography of the Middle East, Africa and some parts of Europe, conservative commentator Charles Krauthammer said Wednesday.

And all the discussions over whether a given group is “core al-Qaida,” “al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula” are pointless.

“It doesn’t wash,” Krauthammer said on Fox News “Special Report.”

The Islamist enemy – whatever name the administration tries to put on it, or whatever spurious claims it tries to make – has expanded in North Africa , the Middle East and even parts of France where effective “no go” zones for French authorities have been in place for years, as areas are ceded to either criminal gangs or Islamic clerics.

“What’s new is the geography of terrorism,” Krauthammer said. “It’s not on the run, it’s not hiding.”

Steve Hayes, editor of the Weekly Standard, agreed.

The administration, he said, is trying to “maintain a false narrative: That this isn’t a war and doesn’t need to be a war.”

“But it is a war,” he said. “And we’re losing.”
