Rep. Tom Cotton Blasts Obama: “Five Jihadists Have Reached Their Targets in the US Under Barack Obama” (Video)

Rep. Tom Cotton (R-AR) went to the House floor and delivered a scathing review of the Obama Administration’s counterterrorism policies and programs.
“Five jihadists have reached their targets in the United States under Barack Obama.”

The Weekly Standard has the transcript:

“I rise today to express grave doubts about the Obama Administration’s counterterrorism policies and programs. Counterterrorism is often shrouded in secrecy, as it should be, so let us judge by the results. In barely four years in office, five jihadists have reached their targets in the United States under Barack Obama: the Boston Marathon bomber, the underwear bomber, the Times Square Bomber, the Fort Hood shooter, and in my own state—the Little Rock recruiting office shooter. In the over seven years after 9/11 under George W. Bush, how many terrorists reached their target in the United States? Zero!

We need to ask, ‘Why is the Obama Administration failing in its mission to stop terrorism before it reaches its targets in the United States?’”
