9-11 victim’s sister finally realizes ‘we’re on our own’ after Obama’s cold remark

The sister of a 9/11 victim told participants of Washington, D.C.’s “Defeat Jihad Summit” that one thing became clear to her after having watched the Vox interview of president Obama published last week: We’re “on our own” in the fight against Islamic terrorism.

Debra Burlingame, whose brother was onboard the flight that augured into the Pentagon, said the president’s callous description of news reports depicting worldwide terror strikes as “overreactions” are what led to her conclusion.

“He [Obama] likened the coverage to local news,” she said, “and he used the phrase, ‘If it bleeds, it leads.’

“And it was at that point that I knew — however much I disagreed with this president on so many issues — it was at that point that I really knew we were on our own in this fight.”
