WASHINGTON – Jeanine Pirro, host of the Fox News show “Justice with Judge Jeanine,” says Americans are beset with a president won’t tell them the truth.
“We have a commander in chief who is so incorrect that he says ISIS is not about Islam. Look, this is a religion of peace, Obama tells us. ‘What planet are you from?'” she asked “‘If they’re not Islamic fanatics, what are they, Martians?'”
Pirro, who previously has blasted Obama for not adequately preparing America for the attacks she believes are coming from jihadists, and even said his handling of various crises constitutes impeachable offenses, spoke Thursday night at the annual conference for the nonprofit activist group Act for America.
She hit Obama over the Sept. 11, 2012, attack on the U.S. special mission in Benghazi that killed U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens.
“I think about Benghazi. I wonder if the people in our government really want to protect us. When I went to law school, I went to learn about justice and equal rights,” she said. “In the law, you have people whose lives have changed because some dirtbag decided to do something to them. We should call it the criminal injustice system. The victim didn’t choose to be a victim.”
In Benghazi two years ago, there were four Americans who died who “didn’t choose to be victims of that attack. Then our president and secretary of state blamed the Benghazi attack on a video. Are you kidding me?”
She said the administration “took Islam out of the talking points on Benghazi because we didn’t want to offend Muslims!”
“We didn’t want to offend them. Really? Do we really think we’re going to make them hate us more?” Pirro asked.
“What do they gain by lying to us? They gain their political office by lying to us. This administration has to say it was about a video because they didn’t want to admit that they didn’t have Libya under control,” she said.
“He is lying to us. He knew it was terrorists. He knew it was Ansar al-Shariah. He knew who did it. Then he complains when the people in this country criticize the administration over Benghazi,” said Pirro.
“Then they’re apologizing for the man who made the video. The reason they had to fantasize about the video being the cause [was] because they claimed that Libya was normalized. They’re lying! We heard Leon Panetta and Martin Dempsey say we couldn’t get there in time,” she said.
“Oh, they tell us we should be happy they arrested the guy who masterminded Benghazi. He spoke to the London Times, Fox, CNN and the media. Then they say it took us a year to find the mastermind of Benghazi,” she said, unleashing on the Democrat in the White House.
“It took them two years after his speaking to the media. They couldn’t get him before that because he would say they were stupid for believing that a video caused it. The mastermind would say that we are stupid. It doesn’t take a video to make them hate us!” Pirro said.
Fox News reported last week three American security operatives claim they repeatedly were told to wait, rather than rush to the aid of colleagues under attack at the facility in Benghazi.
They said it was a CIA operative, identified so far only as Bob, who ordered their delay, drawing a stunned reaction from Pat Smith, the mother of security agent Sean Smith, who died along with Ambassador Chris Stevens and two others.
“Who’s the stupid idiot that we have in our government that would order something like that?” she demanded.
And she wants to know what role the White House played.
Pirro also focused on ISIS, the Muslim terror army now estimated to include more than 30,000 fighters in Iraq and Syria.
“Mark my words, this administration will try to say if you insult the Prophet Muhammad we’re going to punish you,” she said. “Says who? That’s not in the Constitution. Who is the president of the United States to say that the future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam?
“We’re in the middle of a serious mess. Our commander in chief announces the beheading of James Foley, then goes to play golf and high-five his buddies. Now he says we’re going to get the guy who got James Foley and Steve Sotloff. Really?”
“The president says ISIS is not Islamic. Really? What is it, German? Have you read the Quran. Read the d–n thing and you’ll figure it out,” Pirro said.
Pirro also took aim at Obama’s domestic policy.
“They’ve removed all references to Islam and jihad from the training manuals and [they] label the shooter at Fort Hood as committing an act of workplace violence,” she said. “They are so breathtakingly stupid that [we] say [that] even after the Fort Hood shooter talked to Anwar al-Awlaki, a guy who was so dangerous that we had to kill him.”
She cited the administration’s statements about al-Qaida and Osama bin Laden being on the run.
“He wasn’t on the run. He was holed up in a house in Pakistan watching porno movies. We took him out and he wasn’t running. The administration continues with a fantasy. Our president said we’re going to give justice to these people – people who he says were offended by the video,” Pirro said.
Obama’s true allegiance was revealed in his dealings with Egypt, she said.
“We take out Mubarak who was actually an ally. We take out Gadhafi. We supported the Arab Spring, and it wasn’t democratic. But, Morsi gets elected. Obama’s first speech he gave in Cairo was about apologizing for who we are.”
She continued: “We support Morsi because he was democratically elected. So was Hitler. They kick out Morsi and elect al-Sisi and the administration is still holding back. The administration is angry that the Muslim Brotherhood is out in Egypt. The Egyptians had the strength to throw out the Muslim Brotherhood! Shame on us because we don’t have the strength to throw them out of the U.S.,” Pirro said.
“We don’t need to be politically correct,” she said. “We need to be morally right. The people who started this country are turning over in their graves asking what in the world they did all of that for.”
The Act for America convention took place on the 13th anniversary of the Sept. 11 Muslim terror attacks on the U.S.
She earlier warned the Islamic jihadists killing and threatening Christians and other religious minorities in the Middle East are gunning for the U.S.
“They are coming for us,” she said on her program. “They as much as told us in 2009.”
She noted the message was delivered by the leader of the Islamic State, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, who was held as a civilian internee by the U.S. in Iraq for most of 2004 and then released. In his parting message to his captors, he vowed: “We’ll see you in New York.”
Further, she said some of Obama’s actions have constituted offenses for which he could be impeached.
