Biden Remarks Today on TX Hostage Situation Leave out Some Important Info – Opinion

Colleyville’s hostage crisis ended last night with hostages being released safely. The dramatic footage shows hostages fleeing and FBI agents entering the synagogue. The hostage-taker was killed in the process and has since been identified as Malik Faisal Akram, whom the media has identified as a “British national.”

Akram allegedly demanded the release of Aafia Siddiqui, known as “Lady al Qaeda” who is in prison for 86 years for trying to kill members of the U.S. military. CAIR has made Siddiqui a celebre and other groups have worked for her release.

Joe Biden made a formal statement about the hostage taking last night. Kamala Harris made one this morning. Joe Biden also spoke today. See if you can see what’s missing in these statements.

Here’s Joe’s from last night:

So Joe Biden couldn’t figure out his motivation. Even though he clearly stated it at the time — to free Siddiqui.

Was Kamala successful?

She tried to skip right over that “motivation” thing, too. She also failed to mention the Islamic terrorist link.

How about Biden’s remarks today, after the identification of Akram? While it was better in certain ways it was worse in others. While he calls it an “act of terror” and he mentions the relation to a person who was arrested years ago, he completely fails to name who that is, talk about the motivation, again, completely missing the Islamic terrorist connection. He didn’t even mention the guy’s name.

“I don’t think there is sufficient information to know about why he targeted that synagogue,” Biden declared, saying we don’t know why Akram wanted the release of the person who had previously been arrested (Biden scrupulously seemed to avoid naming Siddiqui) or “why he was using anti-Semitic & anti-Israeli comments.” Yeah, we have absolutely no idea at all why he would want to free a terrorist. What is Uncle Joe selling us?

Instead, Biden railed against the easy availability of guns, despite him even admitting you can’t necessarily stop someone from buying guns illegally on the street, as it appears this man may have done. No, Joe, this isn’t your excuse for gun control — don’t even try to go there.

Although Biden attempted to deny the motive, many were curious if Joe Biden had any connection in how this man with an alleged criminal record got into the country.

Even Akram’s brother, Gulbar Akram, asked how Akram was able to get into the U.S. given his prior record. His brother’s actions were reprimanded by him.

Jon Feere is a former Senior advisor to the Director for Homeland Security and was the Chief of staff for Immigration and Customs Enforcement. (ICE) From 2017-2021. Feere had a couple of comments. Feere is the Director of Investigations for the Center for Immigration Studies and stated that Biden had revoked several Trump orders regarding enhanced vetting for foreign nationals travelling to the United States. He also asked whether this made it more difficult for Akram to enter the country.

Good questions. Do we think that Biden’s liberal media colleagues will also be asking these questions? I wouldn’t bet on it, but we shall see come tomorrow. Jen Psaki (White House Press Secretary) will dodge these questions.
