Obama says new groups claiming allegiance to al Qaeda are equivalent to JV players wearing Lakers jerseys. Why the president is wrong.

A long New Yorker profile of President Obama provides a great deal of insight into how the president and his administration view the undeniable expansion of jihadist groups claiming allegiance to al Qaeda.“The analogy we use around here sometimes, and I think is accurate, is if a JV team puts on Lakers uniforms that doesn’t make them Kobe Bryant,” President Obama said, distinguishing between groups that are “actively planning major terrorist plots against the homeland” and those who are “engaged in various local power struggles and disputes.”

Gotta love that 'workplace violence!'
And, Obama, dead is dead, no matter how you spin it.
