Video: Eric Holder Squirms While Refusing To Say 'Radical Islam'(Updated)Topics: Political News and commentaries, Understanding Islam
As Michelle Malkin suggests, Attorney General Eric Holder does so much pussyfooting and high-stepping around the term "radical Islam" here that he's more than earned a spot on the next "Dancing with the Stars":
While jihadists plot, our Justice Department continues to pander to our enemy - and let there be no doubt, radical Islam is our enemy (must-watch video of Lt. Col. Allen West - take the time to watch it all):
Update: Jennifer Rubin writes that Eric Holder reached a new low in in this performance before Congress, and notes that he's had a run of them, so this is no small distinction:
.... Stumbling on and on under questioning by Rep. Lamar Smith, Holder makes apparent the Obama administration's political and moral confusion about the enemy we are fighting. The question is simple: did radical Islam motivate the attacks that have occurred since Obama assumed the presidency?
Holder seems utterly unwilling or unable to formulate a coherent response, and tragically unable to distinguish between radical jihadism and the Muslim religion more generally. If you want to know what is deficient in the Obama team's conception and approach to the war against Islamic fundamentalists, you will find no better example. One wonders - how would Obama respond?
