David Gregory Slams Obama: ‘Big, Expansive Terrorist Threat Amassed On His Watch’

Posted By Brendan Bordelon On 2:07 PM 08/10/2014 In | No Comments




NBC’s David Gregory had some unpredictably harsh words for the White House during an interview with Senator Dick Durbin on Sunday, noting that “a big, expansive terrorist threat that has amassed” under President Obama’s watch.

The “Meet the Press” host spoke with the Illinois Democrat over the limited air campaign ordered by the president to blunt the advance of ultra-violent jihadists in northern Iraq. Gregory requested the senator’s insight as to how the United States found itself again involved in the region.

“Is the problem that the Obama administration — wanting to be something other than President Bush – got out of the business of confronting terrorism on a big, global scale and just dealt with it in a more limited way?” he asked. “Is it an underreaction to the terrorist threat?”

Durbin tried to steer the conversation specifically back to Iraq, but Gregory cut him off.  ”I’m talking about the terrorist threat!” he said. “I’m talking about fighting terrorism.”

“The Obama team said, ‘We are not in the business of a global fight against terror, we’re fighting al-Qaida in limited forms,” the NBC host continued. “This is a big, expansive terrorist threat that has amassed on his watch.”

Durbin suggested the United States had no real ability to affect the strength of global Islamic terrorism.

“There’s no question that this ISIS threat in Syria and in Iraq is growing and troublesome,” he said. “The big question is, what can the United States do to stop it?”

Don't interfere with anything in the Constitution. That must be maintained, for it is the only safeguard of our liberties. And not to Democrats alone do I make this appeal, but to all who love these
great and true principles.

Let us then turn this government back into the channel in which the framers of the Constitution originally placed it.

A 'start' of what?   Establishment media figures covering their butts?

David Gregory, like all MSM so-called journalists, is a disgrace to the profession.

Its either the fault of Bush, global warming, ATMs, tsunamis, or the republicans that the threat was amassed but Gregory doesn't get it.

I seriously doubt it. Gregory knows he's out at MTP. Maybe he figures a little honesty will extract a pound of flesh from his masters at NBC?

Yet Gregory along with the rest of the media criticized the Iraq war constantly when Bush was president.
