"Inexcusable. First of all, no one knows the dimensions of this plot. Just out of basic courtesy and decency he should have. In addition to that, we don't know the scope, if there could be further attacks. The governor did the right thing in declaring a state of emergency for the entire state of Florida. The entire state is at risk just like on 9/11, it wasn't just Manhattan, it was all of New York City, Long Island, Westchester, it was northern New Jersey, everyone was a potential target. Just out of common decency and offering assistance, the President should have said, anything we can do for you, does Orlando need help, do the adjoining counties need assistance, what can we do? ... All I know is when it came to Michael Brown in Ferguson, the administration was so quick criticize the police and believe the Michael Brown story and when it comes to Islamic terrorism, we don't even hear about it."
---Rep Peter King on President Obama not calling Florida Governor Rick Scott to offer assistance after the Orlando terror attack
Chairman of the Sub-Committee on Counter-terrorism Intelligence, Congressman Peter King (R-NY), called into Kilmeade & Friends to talk about what he feels are intelligence failures on a federal level leading up to the Orlando terror attack. King points to not learning the lessons from 9/11 and the Boston bombing where federal authorities did not share pertinent information on potential terror suspects with local law enforcement. King believes President Obama needs to be clear that we are at war with radical Islamic terrorists and disagrees with the President calling the Orlando shooter a 'homegrown terrorist" because he pledged his allegiance to ISIS before attacking the nightclub.
Plus, King explains why he is upset that President Obama still has not called Florida Governor Rick Scott in the aftermath of the Orlando terror attack.
