It was another lie most of the press accepted as par for the course.
The Democratic Party and its operatives in the press truly believe conservatives and Christians are the threat. After every Muslim attack on the United States on our soil Obama and the rest of the Democrats speak out against Islamophobia, even as they deny Islam has anything to do with the actions that indeed terrorize our nation.
Not this time.
This time the public rose and the Republican Party demanded President Obama and his staff tell the truth.
From Fox News, which Obama has warred against for eight years:
Under pressure from Republican leaders, the Justice Department on Monday afternoon reversed itself and released a full, uncensored transcript of the Orlando terrorist's 911 call on the night of the massacre, calling the morning’s furor over omissions in the document “an unnecessary distraction.”
An earlier version of the transcript had deleted the word “Islamic State” and the name of ISIS leader “Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.” Omar Mateen made the 50-second 911 call in which he claimed responsibility for the terror attack and pledged allegiance to Islamic State's leader at 2:35 a.m. The call came just over a half hour into the June 12 slaughter at gay nightclub Pulse.
“I pledge allegiance to Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi may God protect him [in Arabic], on behalf of the Islamic State,” Mateen says on the new transcript.
The old version had several words scrubbed and read: "I pledge allegiance to [omitted] may God protect him [in Arabic], on behalf of [omitted]."It is still redacted. The man did not say God. He said Allah, who is a false god.
I am glad to see the Republican Party show some brass.
