Hillary Lets the Jihadist Cat Out of the Bag

Robert Spencer is the director of Jihad Watch and author of the New York Times bestsellers The Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam (and the Crusades) and The Truth About Muhammad. His latest book, Arab Winter Comes to America: The Truth About the War We're In, is now available.


After four years of pretending there is no jihad against the free world, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton blurted out the truth during her testimony on the Benghazi jihad massacre Wednesday: “We now face a spreading jihadist threat,” she said, adding: “We have to recognize this is a global movement.”

We do? Yet the Obama administration has for years steadfastly and repeatedly denied both that there was a jihadist threat at all and that it was a global movement. So far has the Obama administration been from acknowledging that there was a jihad threat that less than two months into Obama’s first term, on March 16, 2009, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano noted proudly that in her first testimony to Congress, “I did not use the word ‘terrorism,’ I referred to ‘man-caused’ disasters. That is perhaps only a nuance, but it demonstrates that we want to move away from the politics of fear toward a policy of being prepared for all risks that can occur.”

Even “terrorism,” absent a modifier, was a politically correct euphemism for jihad violence that demonstrated an unwillingness to examine the beliefs of the jihadists, for to have done so would have led straight into Islam. Those who described those dedicated to destroying the United States simply as “terrorists” generally did not want to admit that Islam had anything to do with that war. George W. Bush had started this ball rolling when he proclaimed Islam a “religion of peace” shortly after 9/11; however, Bush officials could and did explore the Islamic texts and teachings that illuminated jihadist motives and goals. Under Obama, it became official U.S. policy not to do so.

On May 13, 2010, Attorney General Eric Holder testified before the House Judiciary Committee, where he was questioned repeatedly by Rep. Lamar Smith (R-TX) about whether the Fort Hood jihad mass murders, the attempted jihad car bombing in Times Square, and the Christmas underwear jihad bomber over Detroit could be attributed to “radical Islam.” Holder repeatedly refused to agree to this, going only so far as to say: “There are a variety of reasons why people do these things. Some of them are potentially religious.”

Noted Smith: “I don’t know why the administration has such difficulty acknowledging the obvious, which is that radical Islam might have incited these individuals. If you can’t name the enemy, then you’re going to have a hard time trying to respond to them.”

Indeed. Nonetheless, Obama’s nominee for CIA director, John Brennan, who is the current Deputy National Security Advisor for Homeland Security and Counterterrorism, echoed Holder’s reluctance to say that Islam had anything to do with jihad terrorism on May 26, 2010, during a speech at the Center for Strategic and International Studies. He declared: “Nor do we describe our enemies as jihadists or Islamists because jihad is a holy struggle, a legitimate tenet of Islam meaning to purify oneself or one’s community.” Brennan has repeated this many times, and has defined the enemy not as a global movement, but as a “small fringe of fanatics” consisting of al-Qaeda and “its terrorist affiliates.”

It was no surprise, then, that Brennan readily agreed in October 2011 to demands from Islamic supremacist groups with links to the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas, including the Council on American-Islamic Relations and the Islamic Society of North America, to purge all training materials for law enforcement and intelligence agents of all mention of Islam or jihad. Dwight C. Holton, former U.S. Attorney for the District of Oregon, emphasized that training materials for the FBI would be purged of everything politically incorrect: “I want to be perfectly clear about this: training materials that portray Islam as a religion of violence or with a tendency towards violence are wrong, they are offensive, and they are contrary to everything that this president, this attorney general and Department of Justice stands for. They will not be tolerated.”

In December 2011, when Rep. Dan Lungren (R-CA) asked Paul Stockton, assistant defense secretary for homeland defense, whether “we are at war with violent Islamist extremism,” Stockton did his best to dodge the question and finally answered: “I don’t believe it’s helpful to frame our adversary as Islamic with any set of qualifiers that we might add, because we are not at war with Islam.”

This created numerous absurd situations, since Islamic jihadists so often spoke of Islam and jihad in explaining and justifying their actions, but the Obama administration plowed ahead anyway. Most notoriously, it characterized the November 2009 Fort Hood jihad massacre, when Major Nidal Hasan, a self-described “soldier of Allah” who had given numerous indications of his jihadist proclivities and was shouting “Allahu akbar” as he murdered thirteen Americans, not as Islamic jihad or even terrorism, but as “workplace violence.”

And now, after years of politically correct obfuscation, Hillary Clinton describes our enemies as “jihadists.” Will Brennan rebuke her? Will Obama? Probably not, since they can be sure that an ever-compliant mainstream media won’t ever ask the uncomfortable questions that should be asked at this point: Does this signify a departure from administration policy? Is the Obama administration going to reevaluate its refusal to examine the role that Islam plays in motivating those who identify themselves as mujehedin, jihadists, warriors of jihad and Islam? Doesn’t Hillary’s statement undercut everything the administration has stood for all along – and, incidentally, demonstrate the cynicism and dishonesty of the Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations campaign to make Americans think that jihad is just getting in your exercise or taking the kids to school?

But of course, it was just a slip of the tongue. “No man has a good enough memory to be a successful liar,” said Abraham Lincoln, and in doing so, he demonstrated why the Obama administration’s See-No-Jihad, Speak-No-Jihad policy is doomed to failure: the Muslim enemies of the United States are obviously Islamic jihadists, as shown by their own words, their largely unchallenged claim within the Islamic world to represent authentic Islam, and their references to Islamic texts and teachings to justify their actions and gain new recruits – again largely unchallenged. Hillary Clinton knows they’re jihadists, and that’s why she called them that, although she would almost certainly not have done so if she had been more collected and not caught off guard. But it is when one is under pressure that the lies give way. And so they did.

    So the Clintons strike again. They play both sides against each other. They'll run Hilary in 2016 as a moderate Democrat (sort of) to non-leftists while winking at the radicals just as 0'Bama does. Since the gap is so wide there's plenty of room for it. Not a true moderate of course, but a socialist radical who pretends to reach out to Republicans with slightly more diplomacy than 0'Bama can manage on his best day.

    And she's probably not a Muslim. She's instead duped entirely about the nature of Islam itself, naturally.

  • Mary Sue

    HAHAHAHA Hillary manages to somehow sneak some truth into her testimony as she's losing it. Irony.

    • ybrandstetter

      As I said at the inception of this presidency, Obama has two goals. To make America a third-rated power, and to destroy Israel. He expected Iran to do the second and did not count on Israel's ability to sabotage the nuclear program. He is well on his way to achieve the first via massive debt which in the end stop payments to the armed forces and halt all arms and security investment

  • Randhir Singh

    I know it is not polite to comment on people’s unpleasant personal attributes, but god that Clinton is ugly! If any woman looked better in or deserved a burqa… Bet she leaves a trail of stink behind her everywhere she goes. She was in my country a few months back (conning us into buying your useless fighter jets, the very same ones incidentally, that you give away to Pakistan for free!) and we still can’t rid the stench and people blame our open sewers and poverty whereas in fact it is your visiting US stickplomats who’re really behind (and often in front) of the pong. Please stay away from us and go and marry Pakistanis (if they let you kuffars, that is), you lot deserve each other.

    • charlie4darwin

      Get back to the sewer you belong in, foul mouth.

      Mr. Singh,we've had our own problems with Pakistan,so please stop with the nasty comments and go soak your head. You sound like a nasty jerk and most Indians aren't nasty people. You seem to be in the minority.

  • Flowerknife_us

    Americans died, Obama lied and Rice was the glue to make it stick; As for Clinton, apparently she is not the one to make a 3|00am call to.

    Next up is Kerry the Fairy, A true surrender Monkey.

    • Dennis X

      During the lil bush adminstration 53 people were killed in 11 embassy attacks. Rice lied and 3,000 people lost their lives on 911. Bush lied and another 4,000 people died. Where was your anger then?

      • welldoneson

        denny, the difficulties Bush had in the world were due to eight years of Clintonesque bumbling, ignorance, and lies. Remember Waco? Rice didn't lie. Bush did NOT lie, he went along with intel from around the world. only you 'gainsaying halfwits still think he lied. or, actually, you don't think he lied, you just say that because you're in fact a bunch of liars.

        • Dennis X

          Well welly, lil bush sat on his butt for 8 months in crawford tx. while C. Rice had reports saying the us would be hit. How many Iraq's were involed in 911, NONE. How many Saudi's and Kuwait's ? That relationship between the bush family and the royal saudi family had more more to do with it than anything Clinton did or didn't do. He ( Clinton ) had alot on his mine while being impeached for lying about an affair. The double standard is you blame Clinton for bush failtures yet the economy that he also destroryed was the President's from day one. Waco was a bunch of wacked out zealots who had a history of violence and child abuse, but I'm sure your down with that, huh welly?

          • Ghostwriter

            That's rich,Dennis X,coming from a guy who likes Louis Farrakhan,one of the biggest racists in America,just behind David Duke. But,that's what I expect from a twit like you.

          • Western Canadian

            Dennis X, and I assume that the X is your IQ in roman numerals, you are either inexcusably ignorant, or a deliberate liar. Every single accusation in your pathetic rant, is untrue. Period, no debate, no discussion.

            The ‘reports’ that the US would be attacked, do not mention aircraft, world trade centre, pentagon…. The reports have been made public, and suggest evertything but what actually did happen. Iraq supplied training facilities for the sub animal murders, The economy was doing fine for the first 6 years of bush being in office. Deficits falling very quickly, revenue up, and then the Dems took over the congress. That is when things went downhill, awfully damned fast. As for what he was handed, he was trying to head off the housing meltdown as soon as april of his first year in office. Frank and Dodd did a very good job of not letting that happen.

            You really are as ignorant as you are hate filled.

          • Dennis X

            How many untold BILLIONS go to the cia etc. to connect the dots? Hell, I guess the likes of you needed a date and time. I do remember a report that speically mentioned planes. Six years into ones term the economy was bushs. Who was on the planes=correct, Waco=correct, Clinton=correct and canadian bacon an idiot =correct!

          • Mary Sue

            Incorrect. It was Clinton's. Clinton started up the Fanny Mae and Freddy Mack disasters with the help of Democrats Chris Dodd (D-Conn Senate) and Barney Frank (D-Mass House). Bush tried to stop that mess but the dems controlling the house wouldn't let him.

            The reason Canada's doing so well as opposed to USA is because we have MUCH better regulations on mortgages. And we also didn't have the govt. breathing down the necks of banks forcing them to loan to people who had no hope of EVER paying it back, just on the basis of Compassion.

            Whoa, who'da thunk that loaning money to penniless minorities (penniless ANYONE, really) is a BAD idea?

      • Flowerknife_us

        How many Americans died in those 11 Embassy attacks? Four Died in Libya and we are still being stonewalled with lies from lyres. C.Rice stating we were going to be hit was a no brainier considering the 8 years of attacks Clinton let pass. Now were about to find out that Saddam's weapons of mass destruction made there way to Syria.

        No doubt you would have preferred Al Booooor as President.Someone who would have surrendered to Islam right after 9/11. A bigger surrender Monkey than Kerry.

        Don't fret. With Obama, Kerry and Nagel in charge. the Surrender of the Country to a Slave State the Socialists have dreamed of for a 100 some years will be completed.

        First they take your Guns, The health care mandate will take what money not already confiscated by other taxes.Then they will come for your Food.

        Hope your not overweight or smoke cause Fat camp and Jail are in your Utopian World.

  • kafir4life

    Oh my….Did Bill's wife say that President Stinky (bo) is a liar???? Isn't she the one who's husband was getting hummers in the oval office (or maybe in the Blew Room), and made her look like a fool? Wasn't it Hillary's daughter that couldn't hang onto a husband after spending billions on her wedding, making her look like a fool? Is she the same Hillary that claimed that Stinky was born in Kenya, and was later thrown under the bus by the democrat party because she's female?
    Oh yeah……she'd make a great president. As good as the current one anyway.
    One caveat on the Bill and the hummers thing. Take a good look at Hillary. Seriously….Can you blame him?

    I, think it is fight against Christian and all non muslims, Muslim are performing their duty, for us it is bad but for them it is to follow their teaching. read what Quran talk about. open your eyes they are your enemies.
    Surah. Tauba V 5. P 439
    Fight and slay pagans (Non Muslims) wherever you find them. Fight until they repent
    Sura Tauba V29. P 447

    "Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the last day… nor acknowledge the religion of truth, and fight people of the book, until they pay Jizya (penalty tax) with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.

    Surah Albaqara, v.190-193, p.75-76….
    Fight in the cause of God, those who fight you.
    And slay them wherever you catch them
    Fight them until there is no more

      Correct. For us it is a bad way to act but for them a fulfillment of sacred duty.

    Thank you R. Spencer for next great article. If only more people can listen to you and aware that it is at least not less threat to our country that economy disaster with our debt more than 16 TRL and budget deficit. At stake is our life but 50% of Obama's voters have no clue about it. Corrupted, biased controlled by leftists/Dem's MSM never mention H. Clinton accidentally blurted truth. More sad that conservatives talk show (even sharp, wonderful S. Hannity) did not caught that moment of truth among all her impudent lies.

    If this were an event of equal proportion but against the Left or it's interests there would be non stop critical coverage 24/7. There would be in depth coverage on the outrage of oh so indignant Demonrat dignitaries.
    It would be on The View, Leno, Letterman, Good Morning America, etc., ad nauseum . We would see burning effigies and people sh*tting on police cars. Hell they would be whipping together a made for TV movie about it.
    The drumbeat for the humiliation and impeachment for the evil, corrupt, Republican president would be non stop and deafening.
    TO ME THIS IS YET ANOTHER DISPLAY OF THEIR POWER.

    How can you fight back at something attacking you if you can't even name what's attacking you? That's like blindfolding yourself and flailing at the air instead of aiming directly at your attacker. Which is not only stupid but its arrogance if you think you can actually prevail in that way.

    What the Left promotes is too stupid to believe if it wasn't actually happening before our eyes and too dangerous to be tolerated. We simply can't tolerate the Left's stupidity anymore, but how are we to overcome its arrogance? Its got us by the throat. The country is being led by airheads who think they are God.

    What's going on here psychologically? Maybe denial, distortion, rejection, ignorance ?
    Or much more likely for most of the personnel included above, a sociopathic cover-up of their intensely invested ideological viewpoint of de facto hidden support for radical Islam, while completely ignoring the history of development of Islamist fanaticism
    (Oh, pardon me, I meant to merely say Islamist extremism), from Hassan al-Banna, (1928) through to the present Muslim Brotherhood to include CAIR, and other such worthy organizations rooted in a peaceful jihad to infiltrate and take over the inherently Establishment organizations, as is indeed happening in many Western countries, including the US. The martyrdom-jihad-terrorism is the other face of the Sharia-bound, destroy-democracy, path to the universal caliphate where Sharia-Islam will
    triumph and will rule entire mankind. Not a happy prospect. The far Left, hating "colonialism", adores these intrepid "crusaders" and blindly, unthinkingly aids and abets them, not understanding that if Sharia were imposed, they too would have to conform, or be eliminated.

    The following is the only truth that spew forth from Hillary Clinton’s lips during the Benghazi hearing yesterday. Nevertheless … she has a way of blaming America … not Islam … for the global jihadist threat. It America's inability to communicate …It is America's inability to build relationships Maybe it is the current administration's politically correct refusal to respond with strength … strength that would deter aggression that puts Americans at risk..

    CNN NEWSROOM
    Aired January 23, 2013 – 09:30 ET

    CLINTON: … So, yes we now face a spreading jihadist threat. We have driven a lot of the AQ operatives out of the FATA, out of Afghanistan, Pakistan. Killed a lot of them, including of course, bin Laden. BUT WE HAVE TO RECOGNIZE THIS IS A GLOBAL MOVEMENT. We can kill leaders, but until we help establish strong democratic institutions, until we do a better job communicating our values and building relationships, we're going to be faced with this level of instability.

    We might not be "at war with Islam" as some folks in the administration insist.

    But "Islam" might very be be "at war" with everyone else. Certainly it's self-appointed jihidists think so–and SAY so every chance they get.

    I'll follow your lead, Robert. The following are a couple of quotes from the current Islamist Mali conquest . Is this an example of jihad merely reaching across the isle to make new and different friends?

    "France has attacked Islam. We will strike at the heart of France," Abou Dardar, a leader of Movement for Oneness and Jihad in West Africa (MUJAO), one of the Mali-based groups with ties to al Qaeda, told the AFP news agency.
    Asked where attacks would take place, Dardar said: "Everywhere. In Bamako, in Africa and in Europe."
    Mali’s militants warned France on Friday that it would seek revenge for its military involvement in the country.
    Another one:
    “France will pay the price for this action,” a spokesman for the Islamist militants told FRANCE 24. “We are not weak. We have crushed France in Afghanistan. (…) We don’t have aircraft or missiles but we have our religious beliefs, which will guide us to victory, God willing.”

    The strategic objective of the Muslim Brotherhood in America has been in place for over 20 years.

    ” The Ikhwan ( The Muslim Brotherhood’s name for itself ) must understand that their work in America is kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the western civilization from within and sabotaging its miserable house by their hands and the hands of believers so that it is eliminated and Allah’s religion is made victorious over all religion. ” Quote from http://www.americanthinker.com/2007/2009/homeland_securi.... Also search Holy Land Foundation Trial for more info on Muslim Brotherhood objectives. Also search and watch Bill Whittle on PJTV for FBI and DOD whistle blowers stating the infiltration of Muslim Brotherhood organizations into our government. In effect, we are briefing our enemy.

    Now that her back is up against a wall, hillary will admit that there is a worldwide Jihad going on. However, she leaves out that she has done her best to enable it. She became enraged at the idea that her assistant Huma is not only the daughter of Muslim Brotherhood higher ups but is a supporter herself. The photo of Hillary and Morsi laughing it up at a one on one meeting in Egypt sent chills down my spine and the Egyptian people are well aware of her involvement in the empowerment of Morsi. As for Brennan, God help us. He should be arrested for treason. He is either being paid an awful lot of money by the Saudis or he's being blackmailed or he's a Muslim himself. Whichever it is, he makes Neville Chamberlain look like Churchill.

    It is called diplomacy, the art of getting on with irrational people. We are stuck with this violence, the Quran upholds it and even educated moslems are amazingly besotted with it, but we must deal with it the best way possible, and that is not to escalate things, remember our book says to forgive.

    Let us face the facts, Obama, hence Hilary are Jihadist sympathizers. Neither one has the kaunas to call a spade a shovel, never have never will. I liken them to the good guys in the white hats.

    But make no mistake. Islam is not a religion, Islam means jihad. You mark Clinton's word.

    What difference does it make? Apparently none to the Obamaites, the MSM, unions, university profs, gays, feminists, most of the minorities in the USA. They won in Nov. and did not care then, why should they now? So Americans were killed. Jihadists, sharia, Islamofascism, Al Queda, Hamas, Hezbollah, to the Moron Voter , the low info voters, nothing matters but those perks. So Muslims are ruining what is left of Europe and have armed camps now here in the USA like Mi., what difference does it make??? Nothing unless one remembers our American heritage, history , values and Constitution.

    I have a (slight) disagreement with this article by Spencer. Hillary, in context, was talking about al-Qaeda. In one sense, Hillary has not changed her tune. It is the same b.s.
    Back when Obama was running for re-election, the false narrative was as follows — Islam is wonderful, the Muslim Brotherhood are moderates, and the only ones Americans need to worry about are the al-Qaeda types. Then, after Osama bin Laden was killed, Obama and his cronies claimed that the threat from al-Qaeda was nullified — nothing to worry about. And Obama took all the credit (as if he himself had killed Osama). Fareed Zacharia and all the other Leftist lackeys pandering to Obama parroted the "al-Qaeda is defunct"
    claim. All was well (hence the need for the cover-up in Benghazi and to blame the murder of our Ambassador on another American who made a video — yeah, blame an American, and the Leftists and the media eat it up). Now, of course, Hillary says that al-Qaeda isn't dead yet (she can now say that because Obama has been re-elected.) But — and here lies the rub– Hillary and all the other dumbos do NOT acknowledge any threat from the Muslim Brotherhood — hence, they have learned absolutely nothing! And they fundamentally fail to see the true nature of the threat — it is NOT just "al-Qaeda" — and to continue to arm enemies of America, that is, the Muslim Brotherhood, is suicidal. It is suicidal treachery — so, enough with the claim that the Brotherhood is "moderate" –it is treasonous, to arm them is the same as arming al-Qaeda.

    In other words, there has been no grand break through — it is entirely superficial. Hillary and the other traitors of the Obama team will simply (once again) use the ruse "ooh, it's all about defeating al-Qaeda" so as to arm and train the Muslim Brotherhood (since they'll allege, "the MB are moderates!") feh

    “I did not use the word ‘terrorism,’ I referred to ‘man-caused’ disasters. That is perhaps only a nuance, but it demonstrates that we want to move away from the politics of fear toward a policy of being prepared for all risks that can occur.”
    Ideologues and demagogues say the stupidest things in public but somehow they get a pass from most people. Is the public simply not listening or are they too stupid themselves?

    "It was no surprise, then, that Brennan readily agreed in October 2011 to demands from Islamic supremacist groups with links to the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas, including the Council on American-Islamic Relations and the Islamic Society of North America, to purge all training materials for law enforcement and intelligence agents of all mention of Islam or jihad."

    Why don't these idiots put a gun to their own head instead of our heads?

  • Len_Powder

    "…Major Nidal Hasan, a self-described “soldier of Allah” who had given numerous indications of his jihadist proclivities and was shouting “Allahu akbar” as he murdered thirteen Americans, not as Islamic jihad or even terrorism, but as “workplace violence.”

    What does it say about the American people when they can accept such outrageous nonsense? Why don't we refer to the killings in Newton, CT as "student violence"? This regime is psychologically deprived and morally decrepit. Even worse, it takes a lot of nerve and a total disrespect of the American people to make such idiotic assertions in public. Are we really as stupid as these Democratic elitists think we are?

  • Len_Powder

    Yes, Hillary's use of the term 'jihadists' was very surprising. It's difficult to imagine that this was anything but a Freudian slip given the regime's solicitude about using the term. How is it possible that an unprovoked and vicious assault on innocent people on 9/11/2001 by dastardly jihadists could have been transformed into a justifiable crime against the US and sympathy for a totalitarian and murderous religion? Prior to 911 Muslims in the US were barely noticed. After 911, instead of being recognized as an existential threat to this country, they were defined as victims of Islamophobia and prejudice? What does it say about a country when a heinous and diabolical attack like 911 is understood to be its just deserts and the perpetrators of the crime end up being the victims of prejudice and hate, even though no evidence can be produced to substantiate this claim?

    Oh, no! What are the odds? Next, Obama will admit he doesn't know who his dad is………
