Why Orlando Happened

Meet Sheriff David A. Clarke
In the days since a terrorist who pledged allegiance to the Islamic State killed 49 people in an Orlando night club, our national conversation has been consumed with the question of how we can stop something like this from happening again.

But the sad reality is that terror attacks on U.S. soil probably will keep happening because we keep making the same mistakes. We still do not have a clear and coherent domestic intelligence strategy for preventing terrorism or the appropriate mechanism for carrying one out.

The Orlando shooter was known to law enforcement and the intelligence community and had been on and off terror watch lists for years. He didn't try very hard to hide his hate-filled radical Islamic views; former co-workers reported him as potentially dangerous, but their concerns were dismissed for the sake of political correctness.

The circumstances of the Orlando shooting show that we have learned nothing from past terror attacks like San Bernardino, the Boston Marathon bombing, or Fort Hood, and President Obama and the rest of the left in America don't seem to have learned anything from this new attack either.

Their response has been to once again assault the the 2nd Amendment rights of law-abiding American citizens while absurdly refusing to acknowledge the radical Islamic motivations of the Orlando perpetrator. Obama's Justice Department even censored transcripts of the attacker's pledges of allegiance to ISIS before public ridicule forced them to reverse course.

It's clear by their actions since the Orlando attack that liberals are more concerned with advancing their agenda and being politically correct than they are with protecting Americans from terrorism. Unless we get them out of power, more Americans will probably die at the hands of radical Islamic terrorists.
