Rep. Tom Cotton: Why is the Obama Admin failing in its mission to stop terrorism before it reaches its targets?

It can’t be said any better than Rep. Tom Cotton said it today.

He bluntly and clearly called Barack Obama on the carpet today for his failure to protect the United States from “Five Jihadist” attacks that have reached their target in the United States under his watch.

House Rep Cotton said:

“I rise today to express grave doubts about the Obama Administration’s counterterrorism policies and programs. Counterterrorism is often shrouded in secrecy, as it should be, so let us judge by the results. In barely four years in office, five jihadists have reached their targets in the United States under Barack Obama: the Boston Marathon bomber, the underwear bomber, the Times Square Bomber, the Fort Hood shooter, and in my own state—the Little Rock recruiting office shooter. In the over seven years after 9/11 under George W. Bush, how many terrorists reached their target in the United States? Zero! We need to ask, ‘Why is the Obama Administration failing in its mission to stop terrorism before it reaches its targets in the United States?’”

If the media had any guts, or any integrity, they would be asking Barack Obama himself that very question, over and over again until he answers why he won’t even identify the enemy we face. But they won’t.
