Obama Concerned that Al-Qaeda Is Racist After Africans Are Killed in Bombings

Obama said in 2007 that preventing a potential genocide in Iraq isn’t a good enough reason to keep U.S. forces there.

Genocide in Iraq didn’t bother him, but suddenly after the African attacks last week President Obama is concerned that Al-Qaeda is racist.
The Political Punch reported:

Speaking about the Uganda bombings, the president said, “What you’ve seen in some of the statements that have been made by these terrorist organizations is that they do not regard African life as valuable in and of itself. They see it as a potential place where you can carry out ideological battles that kill innocents without regard to long-term consequences for their short-term tactical gains.”

“In short,” [an administration] official said, “al Qaeda is a racist organization that treats black Africans like cannon fodder and does not value human life.”

And, the fact that al-Qaeda is racist is new to him?
