Would that be the corner of the Boston Marathon terrorist murders?

Obama cannot be that naïve. He is trying to lull us into a false security. The Islamic terrorists are still out there, and if we are not ever vigilant we will be attacked again.

You are either very hard of hearing or simply
too stupid to understand what Obama said in his speech.
He said that the terrorists are still out there and that
we will have to keep attacking them whenever we think
they are planning an attack against us.

Obama's war on the 'mysterious' terrorist enemy while he hides their Mozlem Brother Jihadist culture of death by using drone attacks based on his secret ‘enemy list’ is ridicules and futile. Why would any American president who vowed to protect the American constitution serves as his first priority the culture of death and deceit of the Mozlem Brother terrorists who seek the demise of America and the killing of as many Americans as possible? Why does Obama put all his efforts to be liked by the al Qaida and Taliban Mozlem Brother terrorists that attacked America on 9-11-2001 and again on 9-11-1012 when he was missing in action of protecting the Americans in Benghazi that were under attack of his Mozlem Brother terrorists of al Qaida? Why would any president of America spend his best effort in releasing from prisons all over the world the most brutal and savage murderers of Americans, Christians and Jews knowing well that he give then new chance to kill more Americans based on their culture of death to America?

We have been attacked again, although smaller and Obama wants everyone to think that he's got them on the run.... so they are just work place violence, not Muslim terrorists.

Wow, you guys are just so pathetic…

President Obama found and killed Osama bin Laden (single-handedly), taken hundreds of Al Qaeda off the battle field with drone strikes, all while protecting this nation from terrorist attacks… and you bring up 2 wannabe terrorist with homemade IED’s?

Desperate much?

That ph uka died in the winter of 2001 and was kept under ice. You believe what you want and I and others believe what we want. And what I learned about believing was from progressives. When you can convince that bad is good and good is bad, then you have done your job and helped to destroy us. To be sure this is a two party cluster ph uk. But I know it and admit to faults and flaws. You admit nothing, convinced it is the late 1960's and the battle must be kept going full force. You just follow the party mantra blindly into mass servitude and have helped to bring on what will eventually be the mother of all police states. The thing is, most of the progressive idealist radicals that were supposedly anti war are in control today and they are worse then the ones they replaced. The ones they replaced were heavily progressive also. Only their political agenda increased geometrically. The police state is going to boomerang on you. And you are not going to like it.

If he knew the terrorists were still out there then why did he not help out Americans at Benghazi? Could it be he was too busy campaigning and the fact that he said we had no fear of the terrorist because he killed Osama Ben Laden and he did not want the people to realize we still had a problem?

Obama lied about when he learn about the IRS scandal, and he lied about Benghazi. It's time to start the preceeding and draw up articles of impeachment.

Where was President Obama during Benghazi? We saw him in the situation room for the Osama attack. Why won't he or his spokespersons say where he was? What could be so bad publically that they will not answer that simple question?

Patty, to those killed and maimed, they were hardly "wanna be" terrorists. The truly sad part is that the Obama administration knew what the older brother was before it happened. If you say they didn't know, then we can just forget the whole thing. It doesn't matter now anyway - right? Simpler Fi
