Following President Obama’s speech on national security, Fox News decided to attack the president with claims that he is weak on foreign policy, retreating in the war on terror and afraid to go after terrorists.
Appearing on “Hannity” on Fox News, contributor Liz Cheney and host Sean Hannity ripped apart the president, stating that he was “dangerous” for the country while pretending to defeat al-Qaeda.
Liz Cheney: This notion that somehow he’s ended the war, the war is done, we’re finished. You know, if wishing only made it so, then we wouldn’t have to be engaged in war in the first place. It’s really difficult to describe how dangerous it is for the United States to be led by a man like Barack Obama who is doing everything he can, not only to weaken us at home, weaken us abroad, but now he essentially is retreating. He’s given up. He’s accepting defeat. He’s walking away. He’s refusing to follow through in terms of the necessity to rid the world and the United States of the threat posed by al-Qaeda.
Hannity gave his thoughts on how to fight terrorism from Muslim countries and asked Cheney for her response.
Sean Hannity: Isn’t the simple answer..A…control our borders, which we should be doing now for national security reasons. And B…don’t we really need to know if people are coming from predominantly Muslim countries, where Sharia is the law of the land? How do you go from Sharia, where women are treated like 2nd class citizens to the United States based on the culture you were brought up in. Is that transition difficult?
Cheney agreed, adding another reason to her list.
Liz Cheney: I would add a 3rd thing, which is stop lying to the American people. The president of the United States is doing everything he can to pretend that he has somehow defeated al-Qaeda. It runs through the whole story of Benghazi that you were talking about earlier on the show tonight. He doesn’t want the American people to understand how strong al-Qaeda and their affiliates are. The people that watch your show I know care deeply about the United States, but it is time for all of us who know how dangerous this president is to stand up and fight and be heard, you know, the way that you’re doing Sean.
With dozens of top al-Qaeda members killed and captured during the Obama administration, including the mastermind behind 9/11, Osama bin Laden, President Obama has proven that he is far from weak when it comes to fighting terrorism. After ending the war in Iraq, winding down the war in Afghanistan, assisting in the capture and killing of Muammar Gaddafi and Hosni Mubarak, and his increased use of drone strikes, the president of the United States has shown that he is anything but weak when it comes to foreign policy and terrorism and that he is not backing down.
