Bill Barr and President Trump have to clean up so many Obama messes it is hard to list them all.

Barr had to come in and clean up the biggest scandal in American history that was either pushed by Obama or Barack was incompetent and ket it happen.

Barr cleaned it up with grace and decisiveness as has Trump with the myriad of other Obama blunders (and Bush blunders) left behind for him to fix.

One of the biggest was a simple choice of language. Obama and the Dems shied away from calling out radical Islam in name and the softer language they used translated into a softer stance on the biggest threat to the west.

Not Trump and Barr. They serve the American people, not our so-called allies in the Mid-East and as such, they are not constrained by feel-good language.

They have the courage to call it as they see it and believe me that is the first step to finding a permanent solution.

From Amerian Military News:

U.S. Attorney General Bill Barr announced the results of an investigation into the motives of the Saudi flight student who carried out a deadly Dec. 6 shooting attack at Naval Air Station Pensacola, Florida. The conclusion: the shooting was an act of terrorism.

Barr said the gunman, identified as 2nd Lt. Mohammed Saeed Alshamrani, was “motivated by jihadist ideology.” In a Department of Justice transcript of his statements, Barr cited various anti-American and anti-Israeli social media comments as well as a comment on Sept. 11 of last year in which Alshamrani said “the countdown has begun.”

“This was an act of terrorism,” Barr said. “The evidence shows that the shooter was motivated by jihadist ideology.”

The gunman killed three U.S. sailors and wounded eight more.

Barr credited the work of the FBI for investigating the attack…

..Barr further discussed details about the recent decision to expel other Saudi nationals who participated in U.S. flight training. Barr said that while early reports other Saudi nationals accompanied the gunman to film the shooting, he said the shooter actually arrived by himself and the other Saudi students merely took videos of the resulting commotion.

However, Barr did say that while there was no evidence others had assisted the attack or had pre-knowledge of it, investigators did learn of 21 members of the Saudi military who possessed “derogatory material.”

He further said 17 had social media containing some jihadi or anti-American content, despite no specific connection to any terror groups. He also said 15 individuals, including some of the same 17 Saudi nationals identified as having pro-jihadi material, had some contact with child pornography.
