President Obama has done a lot of speechifying in recent days about America's "responsibilities" in fighting terror.
So you'd think he'd have a word of encouragement for the team of crack FBI agents and NYPD officers that foiled a real-life terror attack against two Bronx synagogues on Wednesday.
Alas, not a peep.
Obama yesterday spoke at commencement ceremonies at the US Naval Academy in Annapolis, Md. -- largely rehashing the themes of his address the day before on terror detainees currently held at Guantanamo Bay.
"As Americans, we reject the false choice between our security and our ideals," he said.
One would hope so.
Yet when it comes to acknowledging the threat that Islamic terror clearly still poses to the American homeland, Obama's been worryingly slow coming out of the gate.
A verbal nod to the Bronx plot -- especially as he raised the prospect Thursday of bringing Guantanamo detainees to US soil -- would at least have assured Americans that he's aware of the stakes involved.
Or is the president's "new approach" in the War on Terror entirely an academic exercise?

It’s beyond his pay grade.
Yes, I believe that is what it is. Goes right along with the fact that he is ill equipped. Being a 'Community Organizer' is his only experience in life.
Obama won’t be too anxious to draw attention to a group of black Muslims plotting domestic terrorism.
What? Me Worry?
His “war on terror” is all eyewash. He really doesn’t mind terrorists at all and in fact it seems as if he would be quite comfortable with an Islamic socialist dictatorship, a la Iran.
Which brings us to the main reason Bam didn't mention this foiled plot. A little digging will show that these were home grown terrorists, gang bangers who converted to "The Religion of Peace" while serving time in prison.
Hmmmm makes you wonder.
It appears that Obama has a different standard for whites vs. blacks and for Christians vs. Muslims.
That's our president.
Yeah, sort of like those ‘Katrina’ whites in Iowa during the floods, or those ‘Katrina’ whites in Kentucky during the winter frosts, neither group receiving any measurable federal aid, or even attention by the racist commie.
Are these plotters registered voters?
voters probably, registered, acorn said so
BTW, did Freepers know that the first Muslim college is being built near Berkeley. A fitting area for anti-American protests. Look, when I see more of the pics with an iman and rabbi both, both protesting terroism, then I will trust so called Muslim Americans who will support America against their militant murderous thuggish Islamofascist cousins!!! BHO will be kow towning over in Egypt. Why should the Islamofascists hit the USA now;they have a Quisling who will continue to view them as possible friends. Yipe.
He has no use for the police or FBI who uncovered the plot, or the Jews who were going to get bombed. But the Black Muslims who were arrested are "brothers."
