Obama’s silence about a terrorist plot against the US military on American soil *UPDATED*

It’s been two days since our Commander in Chief lost one of his own in an attack on American soil — and his silence is deafening.  When an abortionist died, our CIC instantly issued a public statement and used federal marshals to beef up security at abortion clinics.  When one of his own men died in the line of duty (because recruiting is part of the job) . . . crickets chirping.

It’s getting worse, too.  It appears that 23 year old Pvt. William Long’s death was part of a larger terrorist conspiracy on American soil:

The man charged with the Arkansas military recruiter shooting might have considered other targets, according to law enforcement officials.

A joint FBI-Homeland Security intelligence assessment obtained by The Associated Press said officers found maps to Jewish organizations, a child care center, a Baptist church, a post office and military recruiting centers in the southeastern U.S. and New York and Philadelphia.

“Out of an abundance of caution, and in light of newly discovered information, the FBI cannot rule out additional subjects, targets, or the potential for inspired copy cats who might act out in support of the original act,” the intelligence assessment said.

Muslim-convert Abdulhakim Muhammed has pleaded not guilty to Monday’s deadly shooting in a suburban Little Rock shopping center where Pvt. William Long, 23 was killed and Pvt. Quinton I. Ezeagwula, 18, was wounded.

By the way, if you want to see true dignity in the face of death, tune in to this heartrending video of a conversation with Pvt. Long’s father.

Also, as you listen to Obama’s echoing silence, keep in mind his statement yesterday that “American is one of the largest Muslim countries in the world.”  Aside from demonstrating the complete factual inanity of that statement, Melanie Phillips also asks if it was indeed just a statement . . . or an aspiration?

UPDATE:  You won’t be surprised to learn that the Anchoress has attacked this issue and embroidered it into a much larger (and quite disturbing) cloth.  Nor, of course, will it surprise you to learn that Michelle Malkin has a whole article dissecting this peculiar “liberal” (we really mean “illiberal”) pathology of prejudice.

UPDATE IIMichelle Malkin caught the flaccid little condolence statement Obama finally uttered.

    Once Obama learns that the U.S. ranks way down there Muslim population-wise, he’ll simply assert that he meant his statement in terms of land area—the U.S. covers 3.6 million square miles (which would actually make it the “largest” Muslim nation on earth.)

    Of course which of the 57 states boasts the largest Muslim population is probably something he won’t bother to discuss.

    Obama is under no pressure from any constituency he cares about to point out that the murder of that soldier is part of the war on “man-created events” (or whatever euphemism our intellectual superiors are using these days). To do so would require identifying the killer as a militant Muslim, which The One isn’t about to do now that he is poised to deliver the biggest kiss of Muslim ass ever offered by a U.S. president.

    Try as I may to avoid falling into Obama Derangement Syndrome, the man is ruining my day. I expected nothing good from him but now that he is actually in the White House, saying and doing the things he says and does…and, apropos this item, shamefully does NOT say…I start to feel as if an alien has taken over the country’s executive.

    Your first mistake:

    “When one of his own men died in the line of duty…”

    For Obama, it’s Dr. Tiller who was “one of his own men”, not the guys in our military…..
