PHOENIX, Oct. 27, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- After the long Benghazi hearing last Thursday, M. Zuhdi Jasser, President, American Islamic Forum for Democracy slammed the Obama Administration saying, "The elephant in the room has been lost even in the wall to wall coverage Thursday of the tragic terror attacks upon our personnel in Benghazi on September 11, 2012. Beyond the incompetence and deceptions from many in the Obama administration including Secretary Clinton, is the far bigger window these hearings should provide into the context and the sad inevitability of disasters like Benghazi when our nation is beleaguered by an administration with an apathetic approach to counterterrorism. This lens is especially clear in the same week it is reported that our Commander-in-chief cut over 120,000 Army personnel from an already under-manned, over-worked military and bizarrely vetoed the DOD appropriations bill."
According to Jasser, author of the book "A Battle for the Soul of Islam" - "From Fort Hood to the Boston bombings to Syria, Iraq and ISIS, to Benghazi and then to Chattanooga, the Obama administration has refused to confront the common Islamist domestic and foreign threats to our nation and has surrendered our security to Monday morning apologetics and excuses. That is the elephant in the room on display throughout Secretary Clinton's testimony. As Prime Minister Cameron leads by announcing sweeping reforms in the UK's approach to Islamist infiltration within government, health care, charities, schools and mosques, President Obama and his cabinet have telegraphed surrender to global Islamism and its supporters from ISIS to Assad, Putin, and Iran and to their offshoots including Ansar al-Shariah and Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb in Libya which ultimately killed our patriots in Benghazi. They surrender with no hint at ever taking an iota of responsibility even over six years into their leadership. Make no mistake the deaths of 4 Americans in Benghazi was yet just one more symptom of the underlying malaise and weakness this administration has manifested in its unwillingness to confront Islamism and defend our allies for freedom around the world."
