UNREAL: Washington Post Decides Ft. Hood Not A Terror Attack…
Why do national reporters do such a transparently inaccurate (and insensitive) job of assessing terrorist attacks on President Obama’s watch? On the front page of Saturday’s Washington Post, reporter Scott Wilson spun furiously to avoid the obvious fact that candidate Obama’s promises and President Obama’s record on the War on Terror are remarkably at odds.
Worse yet, Wilson insisted that only the Boston Marathon bombings (death toll: three) counts as a “successful mass terrorist attack on Obama’s watch,” which completely avoids the mass shooting at Ford Hood by an Islamic radical (death toll: 13), which is often ridiculously categorized as workplace violence:
“Only the bombings in Boston last year could be considered a successful mass terrorist attack on Obama’s watch, although there have been some near misses.”
