Before his event on manufacturing began in Pittsburgh, President Obama said the capture of one of the suspects behind the Benghazi terror attack delivered the message to the world that if you attack America, we’ll find you.
The president said, “Yesterday, Special Forces, showing incredible courage and precision were able to capture an individual Abu Khattala who was…but more importantly for us to send a message to the world that when Americans are attacked, no matter how long it takes we will find those responsible, and we will bring them to justice. That’s a message I sent the day after it happened, and regardless of long it takes we will find you, and I want to make sure that everybody around the world hears that message very clearly, because my first and most solemn duty as president, and as Commander in Chief is to keep the people safe.”
The president added that people who serve our country need to know that this country has their back and will go after anyone who goes after them. The president gave credit to the Special Forces who once again put their lives on the line to bring a terrorist to justice.
President Obama has made it very clear that anyone who attacks the United States will be hunted down until the end of time. This president has been relentless when it comes to tracking down terrorists and bringing them to justice. It becomes very difficult to label Obama a weak President when his administration remains committed to capturing terrorists.
This news won’t impact the partisan Republican witch hunt in Congress, but reality doesn’t match up with the fantasy that Republicans are selling as Obama the weak foreign policy failure president. The most important thing is that this president is sending the message that attacking America will cost them their freedom and/or their lives.
