President Barack Obama on Wednesday addressed the ongoing situation in Turkey where 41 people were killed in a terrorist attack at the Istanbul airport. Following a meeting with Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto at the North American Leaders Summit, Obama expressed his condolences to the people of Turkey for the “terrible attack that took place in Istanbul.”
During the morning flight to Ottawa, where the summit is being held, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said the president had spoken to Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and offered support.
Hillary Clinton said on Tuesday that the long-awaited report from the House Select Committee on Benghazi found nothing new on the Sept. 11, 2012, attack that killed four Americans, including U. S. Ambassador Chris Stevens, during her tenure as secretary of state. And Stevens family agrees. I do not blame Hillary Clinton or [former Defense Secretary] Leon Panetta, Anne Stevens, MD, Chris sister who has served as the family spokesperson since his death, told the New Yorkers Robin Wright.
But she did get around to releasing a written statement that said: Todays attack in Istanbul only strengthens our resolve to defeat the forces of terrorism and radical jihadism around the world. And it reminds us that the United States cannot retreat. Radical jihadism. She probably never would have said even that phrase were it not for pressure from Trumps excoriating her and Obama for refusing to identify the enemy, but she would no doubt insist (if asked, which she wont be) that radical jihadism has nothing whatsoever to do with Islam.
