Frank Gaffney on Loretta Lynch Redactions: ‘I Call It the See No Sharia Narrative’


Asked by Breitbart News Daily SiriusXM host Stephen K. Bannon for a reaction to U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s redacted transcripts from the Orlando terrorist attack, Frank Gaffney of the Center for Security Policy said, “I call it the ‘see no sharia’ narrative.”

He added, “Not that there’s a problem with all Muslims, but there is certainly a problem with the teachings of the tenets of Islam that are codified in sharia.”

Pointing out that the administration, as usual, went to great lengths to avoid calling the mass murder Islamic terrorism, Gaffney said, “When you see it in black and white. That they are removing the words that make it explicit that what this jihadist was doing was engaging in an act of jihad. And it is such an affront and it proved to be such an infuriating thing that, of course, they couldn’t sustain it.”

Breitbart News reported on the controversy here and here.

The White House feigned ignorance that President Barack Obama had anything to do with the redaction of the transcripts.

“The decision about the release of the transcripts is one that was made solely by Department of Justice and FBI officials,” White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said to reporters during the daily press briefing.
