Obama White House 'still waiting for all the facts' before labeling the Charlie Hebdo attack terrorism

It's come to this. Here's White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest explaining at 8:45 AM ET on Wednesday - three hours after it took place - that the White House is 'still waiting for all the facts' before deciding that the Charlie Hebdo attack was terrorism.

Let's go to the videotape.

Full transcript (longer than the video) here.

Anyone who still thinks that Hussein Obama doesn't bear at least some of the responsibility for the rise of Islamic terrorism in the last six years, please speak up now.

THE PRESIDENT: I've reached out to President Hollande of France and hope to have the opportunity to talk to him today. But I thought it was appropriate for me to express my deepest sympathies to the people of Paris and the people of France for the terrible terrorist attack that took place earlier today.

I think that all of us recognize that France is one of our oldest allies, our strongest allies. They have been with us at every moment when we've -- from 9/11 on, in dealing with some of the terrorist organizations around the world that threaten us. For us to see the kind of cowardly evil attacks that took place today I think reinforces once again why it's so important for us to stand in solidarity with them, just as they stand in solidarity with us.

The fact that this was an attack on journalists, attack on our free press, also underscores the degree to which these terrorists fear freedom -- of speech and freedom of the press. But the one thing that I'm very confident about is that the values that we share with the French people, a belief -- a universal belief in the freedom of expression, is something that can't be silenced because of the senseless violence of the few.

Kenosha Kid,

'Terrorist attack took place today'? Who perpetrated it? Who were the attackers? Not a word about Islam, the allegedly 'defeated' al-Qaeda, Islamic State, or anything else. Were the terrorists Amish? Baptist? Catholic? Druze?

Hussein Obama is a coward and he's bringing the rest of the West down with him. Time for America to find a President who has the junk to stand up to the World's bad actors. The only one Obama seems capable of standing up to is the Prime Minister of Israel.
