This morning even Pope Francis in his address made the threat of radical Islamic terrorism a part of his daily address at the Vatican. Basically, he stated that Islamic extremism in the name of faith is incompatible with practices of faith that focus on the destruction of humanity. Papa Francis is using his global pulpit to express unity with the rest of the European Union to denounce violent extremism.
President Obama has yet to utter the words, "violent Islamic extremism."
The lack of decisive presidential leadership in the Obama administration has left a trail of unfinished projects with results that will effect the American society for years to come. This administration has spent monies of the next 10 generations of Americans through indecisive actions in the Middle East,
healthcare reform, educational reform, taxation reform and just about any legislative action Mr. Obama has ever touched during his tenure in office.
Most importantly the President has relegated the United States to a place that is secondary or even tertiary in world leadership. President Obama's absence from Paris this past weekend clearly indicates he does not understand (or care) about the global view emerging with the spread of radical Islam. Radical acts of Islamic terrorism are not just other countries concerns...they are right here in the heartland of America, waiting for the call to action. Historically, Obama's lack of personal presence in France is an embarrassing and shameful act of presidential cowardice. The next time America asks for allied support, hopefully our friends abroad will overlook President Obama's diplomatic and humanitarian faux paus.
