Letter: Why can’t President Obama use this word?
May 21, 2014, 05:00 AM Letter


Muslim Jihadist Islamic terrorists have kidnapped Nigerian girls (mostly Christian) and sold them into slavery. And while the Obama administration (including First Lady Michelle Obama) protests and tweets how terrible this is, have you noticed that in all of their pronouncements, they refuse to specifically use the word “Islamist” or “Muslim” or “Jihadist” to describe these terrorists? Now, why is this? Why does the Obama administration refuse to use the words “Islamist” and “terrorist” in the same sentence?
