Dem Rep & First Hindu in Congress: Obama Admin ‘Refuses to Recognize Who Our Enemy Is’

Representative and Iraq War veteran Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) argued that the Obama administration “refuses to recognize who our enemy is” on Friday’s “Situation Room” on CNN.

“It sickens me, Wolf, like so many other people who I served with and service members, who served both in Iraq and in other places, unfortunately we lost friends there who paid that ultimate price, and what is so frustrating now as we look at the situation there, our administration refuses to recognize who our enemy is. And unless and until that happens, then it’s impossible to come up with a strategy to defeat that enemy.

“We have to recognize that this is about radical Islam, this is as much a military war as it is an ideological war, and we’ve got to understand what that ideology is and challenge it, understand it so that we can defeat it and protect our citizens, protect the American people…”

    The enemy IS the Obama administration.

    Good points raised by Rep. Gabbard. Betcha the Dems vote here out, during her next nomination run, and put in a true-blue terrorist supporter, Obama-style.

    Even if the administration made a distinction between radical Islam or Islamism and a normative Islam favored by Egyptian President Al-Sisi that would coexist peacefully with the rest of the world (and I know that a good many of you here consider it an oxymoron) and called out this dichotomy by name, that distinction would still be a big improvement over the blanket denial practiced by Obama and the State Department.

    Obama knows who the enemy are: the kuffar.

      Good one. Is it on video anywhere? Or did I miss it?

    She’s a Democrat? What is she… some kind of radical?

  • As a Hindu, she has earned Obama’s loathing.

    It must also be pointed out that Bobby (Piyush) Jindal is a Catholic convert from Hinduism and Nikki Haley (Nimrata Randhawa) is a Christian convert from Sikhism and both from East Indian immigrant parents but they’re Republicans, so….

    CNN used a brief clip from this interview in the opening to their ‘The War Within Islam’ special that aired Monday night.

    Only in the opening though.

    The opening to the show includes people saying things critical of Islam, but, none of those people actually appear during the show.
    The panels for the show are 100% Muslim.
    And, not surprisingly, Islam comes through virtually unscathed.

    Towards the end Daisy Khan (wife of Ground Zero imam Feisul Abdul Rauf) does spill some of the beans on when Islam allows for ‘war’.
    Her body language afterwards suggests regret. 😉

    But, quick to come to her aid is her co-panelist, the Muslim mayor** of some city in Connecticut, with a story about Muhammad and Medina and tolerance and Jewish tribes.
    (He neglects to mention that those Jewish tribes were eventually slaughtered by Muhammad and his army.)

    **The mayor of some city in Connecticut is on CNN defending his Muslim religion?

    If he were a Christian, CNN wouldn’t be asking him to explain his faith, they’d be poking fun at him.
