During an Internet interview with the conservative website NewsMax last week, Rep. Steve Stockman (R-Texas) claimed that President Obama “has a grudge against the military and the American people.”
“He let go five terrorists and we’re supposed to be happy about it?” stated Rep. Stockman (video below).
Rep. Stockman failed to mention that President Bush released over 500 detainees from the Guantanamo Bay prison, as reported by Politifact.com.
NewsMax’s Steve Malzberg claimed that President Obama was not doing anything to get a U.S. soldier freed from Mexico jail. But Malzberg did not mention the U.S. Marine was being held on weapons charges.
“Well, I guess maybe our suggestion is we should exchange [U.S. National Security Adviser] Susan Rice for our military man in Mexico,” stated Rep. Stockman, noted RightWingWatch.org.
Rep. Stockman also accused President Obama of funding the terrorist organization Hamas with $440 million, but in reality the U.S. made a deal to send $400 million to the Palestinian Authority government.
According to The New York Times, “President Mahmoud Abbas of the Palestinian Authority swore in a new government on Monday intended to reunite the West Bank and Gaza Strip after seven years of harsh political and social division. The ceremony came six weeks after the Palestine Liberation Organization — dominated by Mr. Abbas’s Fatah faction — and the militant Hamas movement that has ruled Gaza since 2007 signed a pact paving the way for the new government.”
However, what that “pact” actually means remains unclear.
After making more accusations that President Obama sides with terrorists, Rep. Stockman said, “A lot of people say he’s not something, we can’t say it on the radio, but if it quacks like a duck, walks like a duck, I think it might be a duck.”
