Steyn: Obama 'Owes Us Some Candor' On Radical Islam

Mark Steyn, author of “The Undocumented Mark Steyn,” declared that “the president owes us some candor” on Islamic terrorism during an interview on Monday’s “Hannity” on the Fox News Channel.

Steyn said that the refusal to call acts like the beheading in Oklahoma City and the Ft. Hood shooting terrorism “tells our enemies that we don’t have the will even to acknowledge the enemy that we’re trying to fight.”

Steyn added, that “the president owes us some candor and truth when he talks about this.”

He concluded, “I don’t think that actually more metal detectors, and more security men, and more guys with reflector shades and telephone chords hanging out of their ears is the answer. The fact is this is an ideological war. It’s ideological Ebola that is now infecting citizens of Western nations, and we have to fight it ideologically by driving a stake through it. And John Kerry, and Barack Obama, and David Cameron pretending to be the greatest Islamic scholars in the world as if they’ve all attended the most prestigious madrassa in Pakistan and assuring us this has nothing to do with Islam is part of the problem.”
