James Woolsey came out swinging for this interview. Check it.
Former CIA director James Woolsey said Thursday that President Obama ‘looks scared’ to called members of Middle Eastern terrorist groups ‘Islamic,’ just hours after the conclusion of a White House ‘Countering VIolent Extremism’ summit that studiously avoided pinning terrorism on Islamists.
Sitting FBI director James Comey was not invited to the event, but his counterpart from Russia – Aleksandr Bortnikov, the director of the Russian Federal Security Service (FSB) – attended.
The FSB is the post-Soviet successor to the infamous KGB.
