I'm really glad they didn't call Hillary first.
 
they are trying to figure out if it's ISIS but they think it may not be

this could have been much worse but it's still horrific


ISIS has claimed responsibility........

But CIA think it is more like an al Qaeda operation.....
 
Now I'm REALLY glad they didn't call Hillary first.
 
Dang, I was watching Fox trash Hillary and Obama until a few minutes ago. I didn't realize this was going on.
 
At least 20 civilians and 2 police officers killed. Most of the civilians are Japanese and Italian tourists. ISIS claimed responsibility.

Does anyone else find it offensive when the media quickly announces no Americans killed when something like this happens? It's like thank God there were no americans killed. **** everyone else.

Not really. This happened not to far from the American embassy. Also it is natural no matter which country you are from to want to know about your fellow citizens are.
 
Actually, I think the Art of Politicizing Tragic Events has been mastered by Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton. Please allow me to refer you to the ceremony on the tarmac when our heroes returned from Benghazi. While we're at it, we probably shouldn't forget that the entire democrat party blamed the carnage in Orlando on the NRA and the Republican Party. I'll point to other similar episodes of you like, but this should suffice.

And here I was just thinking that the dead at Dhaka were the victims.
