Like birds on a wire, when one flies off, all fly off.
The reaction of the media to the gruesome beheading of an American journalist was predictable. "The president interrupted his golf game and then, after a passionate news conference went back to the game."
How callous. Right after the killing, too. There was much wringing of hands all the way around. How insensitive can President Obama be?
Let's just ask the former Vice President, Dick Cheney. Cheney helped unleash the hell of Iraq over ten years ago. Cheney will know what to say about President Obama. Wait, his comments are in: "Obama would rather be on the golf course that taking care of terrorists." Or something like that.
But wait! Isn't it just possible, maybe even likely, that the White House knew of the beheading and the video but did not know when or if the video showing the beheading would be released to the public? So, what was President to do, stop everything until ISIL decided to show their barbarism to the whole world?
Then what should the president do? Bomb who? Where? It's almost like a game of chicken: ISIL wants the U.S. military to take them on, given them international terrorists status. Right?
