UPDATE: Obama avoids calling shooting an act of terror
President Barack Obama condemned the shooting in Germany of two U.S. Air Force service men. But he stopped short of calling the shootings an act of terror. In fact, according to the Associated Press, “The German news agency DAPD quoted a local official as saying there were no indications of a terrorist attack.”
Riiiiiiiight. Except for the shouting “Allah Akbar” while opening fire part.
The Obama Doctrine: Hey, we can’t lose a war against murderous Islamic extremism if we just pretend it doesn’t exist.
UPDATE 3/4/11: The administration still insists this wasn’t an act of terror.
