"Rook" has some thoughts on Obama and Islam.
Obama was being briefed by Pentagon brass recently on the air campaign against ISIS. An Air Force general explained that air strikes alone would not defeat ISIS because they had such broad support in the Muslim world and volunteers coming from around the world.
It was an informal briefing on the expanded bombing campaigns to take place in both Syria and Iraq. In a fit of rage, Obama snaps at all the U.S. military brass: “Don’t you dare try and paint all of Islam with the same brush." Obama threw a hissy fit and stomped out of the room remarking they were trying to tie the Islamic State (ISIS) to Islam. His tantrum reportedly took place in the afternoon of last week just prior to his departure to Camp David. Halfway through the briefing, President Obama stood up clearly agitated, and walked out of the room. The casually dressed Obama returned to the briefing moments later with senior adviser Valerie Jarrett alongside him. His mood continued to indicate he was still very upset. The senior adviser made a couple pointed remarks to the Pentagon representatives, reminded them the president had already had a very busy day, and then both she and the president once again left the room. Within seconds, Barack Obama returned again to the just concluded briefing, pointing at the still seated Pentagon staff and indicating how “inappropriate” it was to “try and paint all of Islam with the same brush.” The president repeated similar remarks, his mood going from agitation to outrage. His voice carried to several other West Wing offices. The senior adviser, who did not originally return with the president into the briefing, suddenly reappeared alongside him, as well as the president’s personal aide. She was smiling, and telling everyone “we’re done here” which she repeated several times and then led the president back out of the room.
