It took nearly 3 days and many expressions of outrage from supporters of the Troops, but the bama finally broke his silence on the heinous murder of Pvt. William Long and the wounding of Pvt. Quinton Ezeagwula outside the recruiters office in Little Rock Arkansas.
Said the bama,
“I am deeply saddened by this senseless act of violence against two brave young soldiers who were doing their part to strengthen our armed forces and keep our country safe. I would like to wish Quinton Ezeagwula a speedy recovery, and to offer my condolences and prayers to William Long’s family as they mourn the loss of their son.”
In contrast, within hours, not nearly three days, of the heinous murder of abortion doctor George Tiller on Sunday, the bama expressed,
“I am shocked and outraged by the murder of Dr. George Tiller as he attended church services this morning. However profound our differences as Americans over difficult issues such as abortion, they cannot be resolved by heinous acts of violence.”
Would those “difficult issues” be a Newly converted Black Muslims hatred of the United States Army and any who serve in it?
Considering there appears to have been additional attacks planned on our Soldiers, who are unarmed within the U.S. or at Recruitment Offices, being “deeply saddened” seems a tad bit inadequate.
Better than nothing, though.
Will it defuse the mass criticism of his prior silence?
