Mattis Says US Took Out Al Qaeda Terrorist for Defaming Islam

This is obscene and disgusting. Islamic terrorists kill people for defaming Islam. 

Defense Secretary Mattis is putting us on the same moral level as Islamic terrorists in an attempt to curry favor with Islamists. It’s particularly outrageous considering that the Al Qaeda leader had been responsible for the murder of American military personnel.

Yet instead of saying that we avenged the murders of U.S. Air Force Maj. Rodolfo I. Rodriguez and Navy Petty Officer Matthew J. O’Bryant, we get this.

“The death of Qari Yasin is evidence that terrorists who defame Islam and deliberately target innocent people will not escape justice,” said Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis.

After trying to embed Anne Patterson, the Muslim Brotherhood’s best friend in Egypt, into the Pentagon, he comes up with this bizarre statement that could have come right from the Obama days.

We are not the mercenaries of Islam. We don’t use our military to implement Sharia law by murdering blasphemers and heretics. That really would make us no better than Al Qaeda.

Are we now in the business of bringing “justice” to those who “defame” Islam? Should Ayaan Hirsi Ali or Geert Wilders expect drone strikes? Hell no. Mattis needs to go.
