Obama gave himself a much undeserved pat on the back for a job not well done.
In the video below, lame duck President Obama falsely claims no terrorist attacks have been launched in America in the past 8 years…
“We should take great pride in the progress we’ve made over the last eight years. No foreign terrorist organization has successfully planned and executed an attack on our homeland.”
The Daily Wire has a list of a variety of terror attacks that have plagued the Obama administration.
Under Obama’s watch we had a Ukraine neo-nazi coup, Libya meltdown, Syria war, Somalia war, Afghanistan war, Yemen war, Iraq war, and the rise of ISIS.
Obama forgot to mention that he is the only President in history to have been at war every year of his 8 year term. Congrats Barry, you did a real bang up job.
If the United States remains in combat in Afghanistan, Iraq and Syria until the end of Mr. Obama’s term — a near-certainty given the president’s recent announcement that he will send 250 additional Special Operations forces to Syria — he will leave behind an improbable legacy as the only president in American history to serve two complete terms with the nation at war.
President Obama received tepid applause from troops in Tampa, Florida during his last nation security speech as president.
As mild applause broke out, the cameras cut to the audience.
Of the roughly 20 service members shown at MacDill Air Force Base, only three were clapping.
Most sat with their hands folded or motionless. One man rubbed his eyes.
Most didn’t applaud likely because they remembered attacks being carried out in San Bernardino, California, and Orlando, Florida by jihadis vowing allegiance to ISIS.
And they likely remembered, too, ISIS claiming credit for the attack on Ohio State University by a Somali “refugee.”
