Krauthammer on Redacted Transcripts: Obama ‘Fanatical’ Covering up Islam Angle
BREAM: "Both sides will be able to say they offered something up and they couldn’t get the votes from the other side so there was nothing bipartisan to it. Grabbing headlines, release of some of the 911 phone calls with the Orlando shooter during the protester says of that shooting unfolding. They were redacted this morning when we first got them there were words omitted that just about any of us could figure out what the missing words were. There was an uproar about that Brit Hume had commentary on that tonight. By in afternoon we got unredacted portions of the phone call. Still there are things missing that we might have questions about, Charles. That was a quick pivot. We’re told by the white House tonight they had nothing to do with the decision to redact or unredact."
KRAUTHAMMER: "They may not have issued the order but everybody understands under president Obama you are not to make any reference that could possibly indict Islam or radical islamism in a mass murder. So you have to pretend otherwise. Look, the reason they did a pivot is because it was beyond stupid. It was ridiculous. It was an embarrassment. As say, everybody could see what the words underneath were. And what exactly are they accomplishing pretending they weren’t said? And it exposes the administration as fanatical in trying to cover up and connection with Islam. Guy goes in there and says I’m doing this as a soldier of Allah in the name of baghdadi and essentially declaring his allegiance and you are going to pretend it is something else and has to do with guns or has to do with homophobia? It’s not going to work. The other thing is, put this in the context of the eight minutes or 10 minutes of the State Department record of the Rosen inquiry having to do with lying in the name of protecting the negotiations, you have got the administration no respect for historical record for actual events. That’s a larger issue and that’s disturbing."
