Obama tries to walk it back
Our view has not changed. Terror attack at Paris Kosher market was motivated by anti-Semitism. POTUS didn't intend to suggest otherwise.So now Obama is trying to walk back his foolish statement that the Paris Kosher supermarket terror attack was a 'random' attack.

Does he really mean it?
Or was the outrage over such an obviously anti-Semitic and wrong statement too much for the Obama PR machine to leave it out there?
I'm inclined that he meant to say 'random' just like he meant to compare 'Palestinian suffering' since 1948 to the Holocaust and just like he meant to say that he doesn't know what the capital of Israel is (via his spokescreatures, of course).
