Obama Notes OKC Bombing Anniversary

From USA Today:

Obama: Our thoughts and prayers are with Oklahoma City victims

By David Jackson, USA TODAY
April 20, 2011

President Obama issued a statement late yesterday on the 16th anniversary of the Oklahoma City bombing:

Sixteen years ago (Tuesday), America witnessed a horrific attack in Oklahoma City, killing 160 men, women and children, and wounding hundreds of others.

Michelle and I send our deepest condolences to the families and friends who lost a loved one and suffered through this tragic event.

We also need to remember the resilience and toughness of the American people and know that our nation’s resolve to fight terror and combat violent extremism, in all its forms, will not waver.

Isn’t it peculiar that Mr. Obama would call this "terror" and not ‘a man-caused disaster’? Which is the term of art this administration uses for Muslim terrorism.

As a nation, we should take a moment to recognize the courage and spirit of our fellow citizens, the first responders who rushed to the site to save countless lives, and the people of the nation who stood together to lift up this tight-knit community.

Our thoughts and prayers are never far from those who lost their lives sixteen years ago.

This is all well and good, of course. But yesterday was also the 18th anniversary of the ‘Waco Siege’ conflagration, in which 76 people (24 of them British nationals) were killed by the federal government, including more than 20 children and two pregnant women.

And, lest we forget, Waco was Timothy McVeigh’s motivation for bombing the Murrah Office building in the first place. (Not that it in anyway justifies McVeigh insane actions.)

But since Waco was a Democrat administration’s operation, it has been sent packing down our news media’s vast memory hole. While the OKC Bombing is studiously trotted out every April 19th, year in and year out.

    Here’s the subtext: Crazy white guy hates government and kills people: Terrorist

    Crazy Islamonazis hate U.S., Israel, capitalism, the Western Tradition, and kill masses of people: Freedom fighters pleading for social justice

    • Right of the People says:

      You hit it right on the head River0. It’s only terrorism if a white guy does it. Mooselimbs get a pass since it wouldn’t be politically correct.

    Here is what our President and Secretary of State are “supporting” in Libya. The so-called rebels or radical Islamists, are barbarians and the same as Al-Qaeda. Our tax dollars are supporting this through NATO and air strikes and the President is now re-thinking about placing “boots” on the ground in Libya.

    Video – graphic and barbaric.
