Umm… I’m not sure where Obama was for the terrorist attacks at Fort Hood, Pulse Nightclub, the Boston Marathon or in San Bernardino one year ago… Maybe he was golfing?
Obama: "No foreign terrorist organization has successfully planned and executed an attack on our homeland." https://t.co/Pkee0YWhYd

This is a massive insult to the families who have lost loved ones because of Obama’s failure to protect the American people against radical Islamic terrorism!
The most important job of the Commander-in-Chief is to keep the American people safe and Obama has FAILED!
Notice in the video how he tries to wiggle out of his responsiblities by saying that no “foreign terrorist organization” has successfully planned and executed” an attack on our homeland? But that’s not true. Terrorist organizations were behind the training and recruiting of a number of attacks in the US and even claimed responsibility in some cases.
Here’s a partial list of Obama’s record of terrorist attacks “successfully planned and executed” on U.S. soil since Obama first took office in 2009: Hat tip: Daily Wire:
Fort Hood, Texas, November 5, 2009. Major Nidal Malik Hasan shot up a military base in Fort Hood and murdered 14 people. Hasan was in contact with al-Qaeda terrorist Anwar al-Awlaki prior to the attack and after being sentenced to death, Hasan requested to join ISIS while on death row. Even Obama (six years later) acknowledged the shooting as a terror attack instead of “workplace violence.”
Boston, Massachusetts, April 15, 2013. Tamerlan and Dhozkar Tsarnaev set off two bombs at the 2013 Boston marathon, killing three and injuring over 260 people. The Tsarnaev brothers were radicalized through a mosque with ties to al-Qaeda.
Garland, Texas, May 3, 2015. Two gunmen shot up the Curtis Culwell Center in Garland, where a Mohammed cartoon contest was taking place, and were killed by a police officer. ISIS claimed responsibility for the attack.
San Bernardino, California, December 14, 2015. Two radical Islamists, Syed Farook and Tashfeen Malik, shot and murdered 14 people and injured 22 others at an office holiday party. Their connections to terrorists organizations are well-documented.
Orlando, Florida, June 12, 2016. Omar Mateen, 29, opened fire at a gay nightclub, killing 49 and injuring 53. The FBI investigated Mateen twice before his rampage, who pledged loyalty to ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi before his death.
Columbus, Ohio, November 28, 2016. Abdul Razak Ali Artan, a 20-year-old Somali refugee attempted to run over his fellow Ohio State students on campus. After his car was stopped by a barrier, he got out of the vehicle and began hacking at people with a butcher knife before being shot dead by a campus police officer. He injured 11 people, one critically. ISIS took credit for the attack.
The President’s claim — which he has repeated in some form or fashion over the last few years — is an obvious rhetorical attempt to gloss over the reality of the threat of radical Islamic terror on American soil.
As long as Barack Obama is being ridiculous… The Flipside with Michael Loftus makes fun of Joseph Clancy, the head of the secret service. This is one of the funniest skits I have ever seen.
With Barack Obama heading out the door, maybe the Secret Service will finally get their act together! If not, Donald Trump will have to say, “You’re Fired!”
