The Clown frees buddies of bin Laden, allows the terrorists to take over Fallujah, embraces the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, lies about the failure to protect American lives in Benghazi, gives the green light to Iran to get nukes, ignores the security of Israel, keeps American borders open to terrorists, ignores warnings about the Boston bombers sent by Russia....but fires some missiles at some low level operative in Somalia, and the media gloms onto it like the White House is really tough on terror.
