THE OBAMA OPTICS....... UNNERVING IN BUENOS AIRES 

The world watched the sickening images of the suicide- bombing attack at the Brussels airport, then the subsequent suicide-bombing of metro train in Brussels.... ISIS style terror that created the endless carnage in Brussels, it was horrifying...especially as the Leader of Free World danced on.

The death toll from the Brussels suicide-bombing attacks on the airport, and the rush-hour train, rose to 35 on Monday. In addition, 340 people were wounded while 96 people were still being treated in hospitals, 55 in intensive care. These were all innocent people whose lives intersected with Brussels at the luckless deadly moment.

Unnerving were the images of President Obama dancing the tango during his historic trip to Buenos Aires, the first time an American President has been to Cuba in almost 90 years. The Cuban itinerary included a baseball game alongwith the tango dancing........ none of it altered after the horrific ISIS bombing attacks in Brussels, the trite Obama optics all wrong.

The president defended his actions in the aftermath of the bombings at the Brussels airport and subway, arguing that ISIS should not be allowed to disrupt Americans’ lives, “Their primary power, in addition to killing innocent lives, is to strike fear in our societies, to disrupt our societies," said the President. “Even as we are systematic and ruthless and focused in going after them -- disrupting their networks, getting their leaders, rolling up their operations -- it is very important for us to not respond with fear.”

Really. It seems very important that people recognize the threat of continued attacks from ISIS, and respond appropriately, letting our fear lead to protective measures that must be taken to ensure free societies wherein people can board trains and planes, without risk to their lives. Fear should drive forward the truth, that ISIS Muslim Extremists wish to destroy the world of the infidels, by suicidal bombings that seek glory in death and the hereafter.

ISIS must be stopped in the bloodbath revisionism of the Muslim religion, dancing the tango is not the right response, it is denial, it is viscerally weak political optics.

Richard Haass, president of the Council on Foreign Relations bluntly stated on MSNBC, "The advance person who let him do the tango, that person ought to be looking for work on somebody’s campaign very, very far away...... that was a tremendous mistake.”
