Barack Obama, speaking at a Friday afternoon news conference, maintained that the "core" of al Qaeda is "on its heels" and "has been decimated" while admitting that regional elements of the terrorist organization can still "pose a threat" to American interests.

ABC News's Jonathan Karl asked the president still believes that al Qaeda has been "decimated," as he said in a speech last May. Watch Obama's response below:

“Decimated” means 10% is gone.

That leaves 90% operational.

This is the Muslim practice of Taqqiyah.

They are so weak that they can do nothing - except make the United States of America run away.

Obama is one of the most pathetic people in the history of the world. We have taken someone with shockingly below average abilities and put him in a job that is so far above his capabilities that he can’t even fake it.

This...make-believe person...exists in a make-believe world that somwone a lot more intelligent and imaginative created for him on his teleprompter because he is not intelligent enough to do it himself. Even his imagination is phonier than his ‘scandals’.

Nachum you owe me. I spewed all over my computer reading this. I guess this proves that alternate universes exist in alternate universes. Or just take the right pill.

Remember you can’t get to the moon with fractions you need whole numbers!

Wonder how long it took him to learn to say ‘decimated’.

So you say that you are going to bomb all of our embassies with your army of robotic mutant ants? Hmmmmm, sounds serious, and I can use the poll bump.


Due to a series of tips, we have decided to close every embassy on Earth rather then have them be attacked by the terrorist group known as...Al Bart-quada."

So weak that they are killing a 1000 people a month in Iraq, the most in 7 years. Yeah, that weak.

How can they be weak when Obama is supplying them with surface to air Missles and automatic rifles for their fight in Syria, after backing them in their deposing of Khadafi in Libya.

If Al Qaeda is “relatively centralized”, then it is no longer Al Qaeda.

But it isn’t “relatively centralized”, so Obama is lying. Surprise.

I think Al Qaeda & the world saw Obama tuck-tail and run this week!

So, now all they have to do is let Obama ease-drop on their calls to make him pee himself.

Al Q has always been fairly decentralized. The center is just a bunch of people providing funds, training and support to whichever jihadi group had decent plans for operations.

Honestly, I have to ask again, does ANYONE believe this clown? He really is about as reliable as a rubber crutch.

The only weakness Al Qaeda is experiencing tonight is in their stomach muscles....they must be laughing until their sides hurt at his lies.
