Obama statement recognizes 'tragedy' in Boston; no mention of terrorism

Here are a few things missing from President Obama's statement Tuesday marking the anniversary of the 2013 terrorist bombing of the Boston Marathon:

• The word "terrorism."

• The word "bombing."

• The fact that the bombers were motivated by Islamist extremist beliefs.

No, in his mind this was a "tragedy" that just somehow happened and from which we need to recover, not a criminal act that may have been preventable.

Here's the statement, in full:

A year ago, tragedy struck at the 117th Boston Marathon. Four innocent people were killed that week, and hundreds more were wounded. Today, we remember Krystle Campbell, Lingzi Lu, Martin Richard, and Sean Collier. And we send our thoughts and prayers to those still struggling to recover.

We also know that the most vivid Images from that day were not of smoke and chaos, but of compassion, kindness and strength: A man in a cowboy hat helping a wounded stranger out of harm’s way; runners embracing loved ones, and each other; an EMT carrying a spectator to safety. Today, we recognize the incredible courage and leadership of so many Bostonians in the wake of unspeakable tragedy. And we offer our deepest gratitude to the courageous firefighters, police officers, medical professionals, runners and spectators who, in an instant, displayed the spirit Boston was built on – perseverance, freedom and love.

One year later, we also stand in awe of the men and women who continue to inspire us – learning to stand, walk, dance and run again. With each new step our country is moved by the resilience of a community and a city. And when the sun rises over Boylston Street next Monday – Patriot’s Day – hundreds of thousands will come together to show the world the meaning of Boston Strong as a city chooses to run again.

If Obama had a son, he would look a little like Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.  **nononono*
“Let each citizen remember at the moment he is offering his vote that he is not making a present or a compliment to please an individual – or at least that he ought not so to do; but rather he is executing one of the most solemn trusts in human society for which he is accountable to God and his country.” Samuel Adams, April 16, 1781.

Obama made the word 'terrorism' illegal. Because from the Muslim radical Black mindset, there is no such thing as 'terrorism'. There is only "man caused disasters". There is only, 'the struggle'. (which means the fight against Whites and the West)
This is what the Liberals have ushered into America and the world.

You cannot "COEXIST" with people who want to kill you.
