After Maj. Nadal Malik Hasan shouted “Allahu akbar” (Allah is greatest) and massacred soldiers and support staff preparing for deployment at Fort Hood, Texas in 2009, President Barack Obama said, “We don't know all the answers yet. And I would caution against jumping to conclusions until we have all the facts.”
In a matter of days, Americans would learn that Hasan's adherence to the jihadist ideology clearly motivated his attack. But even though Hasan's business card read “soldier of Allah” and he left a trail of openly jihadist evidence throughout his Army career, to this day the Obama administration refuses to identify radical Islam as a possible motivation.
Fast-forward to September 11, 2012, when a group of heavily-armed Islamists stormed the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, killing four: U.S. Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens, State Dept. Foreign Service officer Sean Smith, and two U.S. Marines whose names were withheld pending notification of family.
