That’s the number of people killed by “Islamofascist” terrorists on American soil since Sept. 11, 2001, under the current White House administration and under the previous White House administration.
I just remind you of that when you see a news story about Repugnican politicians criticizing the Obama administration on its record of preventing terrorist attacks.
I know that this is all ancient history already, but on Aug. 6, 2001, George W. Bush received a presidential daily briefing titled “Bin Laden Determined to Strike in U.S.”
A little more than a month later, Bin Laden did indeed strike in the U.S., killing 2,973 people.
But the Repugnicans now are lambasting President Barack Obama over an attempted terrorist strike in December that killed no one.
Next, I suppose, the Repugnicans are going to criticize Obama’s record on preventing unnecessary American deaths from natural disasters…
