America struggled to heal after September 11th. Everyone that was within the U.S. then knows that. The attack is shown to be devastating to everybody within the country at the time, not just family and friends of those who perished, in history books. There are individuals worried about a remark made by President Obama. He makes it seem like September 11th was no large deal. Cheney was really angry that Obama said this.
What was Obama’s comment?
President Obama put into words his feelings on terrorist attacks, including the September 11th attack. Bob Woodward
showed in his new book, “Obama Wars,” President Obama stating:
We can absorb a terrorist attack. We’ll do everything we can to prevent it, but even a 9/11, the biggest attack ever… we absorbed it and we are stronger.”
Liz Cheney, daughter of Dick Cheney, got really mad at the statement being made.
Cheney’s answer to it
Liz Cheney was outraged by this statement on the part of President Obama. The way she viewed it, Obama said obviously that he didn’t plan on using all of his power and resources to protect America. She called for an explanation from Obama about this.
According to CBS News, she said:
Americans expect our President to…use everyeach tool at his disposal to find, defeat, capture and kill terrorists. We expect him to…make it clear to our adversaries that an attack on the United States will carry devastating consequences. Instead, President Obama is reported to have said, ‘We can absorb a terrorist attack.’ This comment suggests an alarming fatalism on the part of President Obama… The President owes the American people an explanation.
More individuals are interested in a conclusion
Other people are worried about the Obama terror attack remark and hope to have a conclusion too. The question on Bilal’s mind of 12 News is why the president would ever say something like that at all. He was also upset with the idea the president of the United States is probably not doing anything in his power to stop terror attacks from happening. Then there are the people wondering why the President would be telling terrorists to go ahead and hit us. Then there is Mitch Marconi. He thinks that every person is just overreacting to the remark as a result of the joy they get in criticizing the Obama administration with Cheney. An explanation can be expected soon from Obama no matter which is true.
