Watch: Dem Congresswoman Shreds Obama Administration over Comments about Terrorists

Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii), an Iraq war veteran who says she has seen terrorist culture up close, is not pleased with the Obama administration’s inability to identify radical Islam as a problem for the United States.

Secretary of State John Kerry recently had the baffling explanation that terrorism is not fueled by ideology but rather, is nothing more than “criminal conduct rooted in alienation, poverty, thrill-seeking and other factors.”

Gabbard responded:

“If that’s really the cause, then the solution would be just to give them a trophy, give them a hug, give them a good-paying job, $10,000, and a skateboard so they can go and get their thrills and say, ‘OK, great, they are going to be happy and they won’t be fighting anymore.’  That’s not the case.”

She then went on to explain that the Obama administration needs to identify their enemy in order to have any chance of winning.

Gabbard said it’s basically “Military 101” and something that everyone can easily understand – “If you are at war, which we are, you have to know who your enemy is to defeat them.”

Take a look at Gabbard’s scathing response to the Obama administration and John Kerry below…

What do you think of Gabbard’s comments? Does she nail the fact that the Obama administration doesn’t even understand basic concepts about the war against radical Islam?
