Former Assistant United States Attorney Andrew McCarthy says Americans aren’t getting the full story about El Sayyid Nosair and the tragic terror attack in San Bernardino.
“Things haven’t changed much in 25 years. The law enforcement people who speak to the public and the political people who speak to the public, for whatever reason, feel the need to go out and essentially lie, or close their eyes to the evidence,” McCarthy told host Stephen K. Bannon during an exclusive interview on Sirius XM’s Breitbart News Daily.
Somewhat comparing it to official public statements after this week’s events in San Bernardino, McCarthy pointed out that after the November 1990 assassination of Israeli Rabbi Meir Kahane, the NYC Chief of Detectives called it the work of a “lone gunman” the very next day. Yet, the assassin, El Sayyid Nosair, turned out to be “part of an active Jihadist network.”
Asked why it happens, McCarthy said, “I think they’re, in part, trying to create an Islam of their own because they don’t want to deal with the one we have. So, in their minds – and this is the thing we’ve seen with Obama for seven years – if you say something that’s not true and you say it often enough and rigorously enough, that maybe your words will turn it into reality. And that’s why it’s so disturbing to have a President living in an alternative reality.”
McCarthy continued, “In their minds, violence has nothing to do with Islam … and the fact that Muslims are committing it is happenstance. There’s no doctrinal underpinning to it…. That’s why you see them so hesitant to say what’s obviously terrorism is terrorism.”
McCarthy made the above comments and more today during an exclusive interview on Sirius XM’s Breitbart News Daily with host Stephen K. Bannon. McCarthy was also lead prosecutor of the “Blind Sheik” Omar Abdel Rahman, and author of “The Grand Jihad: How Islam and the Left Sabotage America.”
