Conservative columnist Michele Malkin on Friday blasted the Obama administration’s hapless strategy to topple Islamic terrorism, especially the notion that creating economic opportunities for Arabs will make a dent.
Driving home the point in an interview with BizPac Review at the Conservative Political Action Conference, Malkin said the men who attacked the United States on Sept. 11 were raised by wealthy families.
“All of the reality tells us that most of the terrorists that we are familiar with — including the majority of the 19 hijackers who were responsible for 9/11 — not only had plenty of jobs but actually were among the elite,” she said. “[Lead hijacker] Mohammed Atta went to school in Hamburg and got a major in urban planning.”
Malkin made similar points in an article she wrote Wednesday for townhall.com.
Upper-class terrorists include such notables as 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed; Ahmed Omar Saeed Sheikh, who murdered American journalist David Pearl; and uber-wealthy Osama bin Laden himself, Malkin said.
Obama’s naive approach to terror isn’t new, noting he’d made similar statements in the immediate aftermath of 9/11 that showed his lack of sophistication about the fight against radical Islamic terrorism.
“He was spouting the same line about how if we only showed more understanding, which this guy has a complete lack of,” she told BizPac Review. “And, of course, he didn’t call them our enemies, he didn’t call them Islamic. He is intellectually and constitutionally incapable of dealing with reality and our enemies.”
