I am completely underwhelmed by the President’s statement concerning the murder of Private William Long and wounding of Private Quinton Ezeagwula by Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammed, a Muslim convert formerly known as Carlos Bledsoe, in Little Rock, Arkansas. While the President was “shocked and outraged” by the murder of Doctor Tiller in Wichita and characterized it as a “heinous act of violence,” the best he could do for two young soldiers was that he was “deeply saddened” by “senseless violence.” I have news for the President: Unlike the murder of Doctor Tiller, the attack on Privates Long and Ezeagwula made perfect sense to their attacker whose chosen middle name means “holy warrior” in Arabic. They were American soldiers, hated because they were soldiers, Americans, and free men. He considered them his enemies, the enemies of his “religion of peace,” as he considers all of us who refuse to accept Islam as our religion or dhimmitude subservience to Muslims.
The President’s lukewarm expression of condolence to Private William Long’s family and concern to Private Quinton Ezeagwula and his family do not impress me as credible due to the delay before he made it. Within hours of Doctor Tiller’s death, the President made his statement of outrage, and the Attorney General ordered the US Marshal’s Service into action. Within days after the murder of a young American soldier and the wounding of another, the President is “saddened,” and the Attorney General does exactly nothing.
As a retired soldier, I respect the office of the President of the United States, but I am having great difficulty in respecting the person of Barack Obama, right now.
