Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly slammed President Obama for not calling the suspected Boston bombers “jihadists,” which O’Reilly claimed they are (video below).
To prove his point, O’Reilly played a clip of President Obama telling the nation last week that all the facts needed to be gathered and cautioning against a rush to judgment on the motivations of any “specific group of people,” reported Mediaite.com.
O’Reilly’s guest Fox News analyst Charles Krauthammer was angry that Obama refused to use the word “Islamist.” Krauthammer said Obama’s refusal to use the word “Islamist” is “weird” and “embarrassing.”
Krauthammer recalled Winston Churchill and President Roosevelt calling out the Nazis and the Japanese during World War II, but failed to mention that the U.S. has not declared war with any country and there is no single country that represents Islamic terrorists.
“You can’t say, fairly, that President Obama is soft on the jihad… He uses the drones… He doesn’t avoid killing them when he can,” admitted O’Reilly, who was visibly frustrated over the president not using his verbiage.
