The Obama Administration backtracked pretty quickly on the redacted 911 transcripts from the Orlando Disco Massacre, much to the chagrin of their mindless drone fanboys who defended the explanation that “leaving them in would only let ISIS use them for propaganda.” As Ian Tuttle points out, this was the kind of idiocy only an Obama supporter could buy.
Perhaps it’s worth asking just what in the Sam Halal Loretta Lynch thinks happens in cabinet meetings of the Islamic State. Apparently, in her mind, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi & Co. have been judiciously waiting for more ironclad evidence before making Orlando a staple in their recruitment efforts, and the DOJ thought a redacted transcript would cut them off at the knees. “He only pledges allegiance to ‘[omitted]’! We can’t put this on the fliers!” And likewise with all of those potentially “self-radicalizing” “lone wolves.” (Never mind all of the beheading videos they can still watch on Reddit.)
The reason the Obama Administration redacted the transcript is because they wanted to pretend that the Orlando Disco Massacre had nothing to do with Terrorist Islam. Just as they wanted to pretend the San Bernardino Christmas Party Massacre had nothing to do with Terrorist Islam. Just as they wanted to pretend that the Fort Hood Massacre (which they labeled “Workplace Violence”) had nothing to do with Terrorist Islam. Just as they wanted to pretend the Chattanooga Recruiting Center Massacre had nothing to do with Terrorist Islam.
Yet, they were absolutely damned sure that Dylan Roof’s Charleston Church Meeting Massacre was emblematic of racist southern white culture and that was why the Confederate Flag had to be banned… even from Civil War Historical Sites.
Update: Speaking of Obama Administration Stupidity… “Kum Ba Yah, My Lord, Kum Ba Yah…”
