Pretending radical Islamic terrorism doesn’t exist does not make it so
President Obama has long refused to concede that modern terror attacks are largely perpetrated by radical Muslims.
But has the White House taken the terrorism white washing a step further?
MRCTV reported that a video posted by the White House appears to edit out “Islamist Terrorism” from a recent speech given by French President Francois Hollande. While the words are in the speech transcript, they’ve been noticeably scrubbed from the video.
Craig Bannister for MRCTV blogs:
According to the official White House transcript of Hollande’s remarks, Hollande refers to “Islamist terrorism.” The audio of the bold text in brackets is missing from the video – the only point in the video were the audio is absent:
“We are also making sure that between Europe and the United States there can be a very high level coordination.
“But we’re also well aware that the roots of terrorism, [Islamist terrorism, is in Syria and in Iraq. We therefore have to act both in Syria and in Iraq, and this is what we’re doing within the framework of the coalition.] And we note that Daesh is losing ground thanks to the strikes we’ve been able to launch with the coalition.”
From the White House transcript:
“Technical issues.” Riiiiiigght.
UPDATE: White House restores uncensored Hollande video, blames "technical issue" https://t.co/lfR4dksgk7
