I half expect that when Holder finally puts us out of our collective misery and finally makes good on his resignation, that’s when he’ll flee to Syria to wage jihad alongside the Islamic State, uh, Daesh.
Eric Holder says the US is ‘at war’ with ‘lone wolf’ terrorists after Paris attacks. Lone wolf what exactly? J I H A D I S T S. The Obama administration is beyond looking clueless here; they appear to be complicity.
After the release of the video with the Paris jihadi pledging allegiance to the Islamic State, Holder strained credulity and said in a series of interviews with the Sunday morning news shows in Washington that investigators at this point don’t have “any credible information” to determine which terrorist group was responsible for the attacks in Paris.
As a million people gathered in Paris to march and express solidarity in the face of Islamist terror attacks that this week killed 17 people, attorney general Eric Holder said the US was “at war” with “lone wolf” terrorists.
Holder’s comments were polar opposite to those of the French prime minister, Manuel Valls, who said on Saturday that his country was at war with radical Islam. “It is a war against terrorism,” Valls said, “against jihadism, against radical Islam, against everything that is aimed at breaking fraternity, freedom, solidarity.”

Attorney General Eric Holder is in Paris this week to attend a meeting on fighting terrorism, but did not participate in a march with world leaders Sunday to honor the 17 people killed last week in France.
More than 40 world leaders marched arm in arm through Paris to rally for unity and freedom of expression and to honor the victims of the three days of terrorist attacks.
The leaders headed a demonstration of at least tens of thousands of people who converged on the capital after three gunmen last week attacked a newspaper office, kosher supermarket and police.
Among the world leaders attending the event, under extremely tight security, are French President Francois Hollande, British Prime Minister David Cameron, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas.
Holder is the top Obama administration official to attend the terrorism meeting. There are no known reports of members of Congress attending the event or the meeting.
Speaking from Paris, Holder said in a series of interviews with the Sunday morning news shows in Washington that investigators at this point don’t have “any credible information” to determine which terrorist group was responsible for the attacks in Paris.
He also said the White House will hold a summit Feb. 18 in Washington on terrorism.
Al Qaeda’s branch in Yemen has said it directed the attack by two brothers against a newspaper that lampooned Islam and other religions, and the gunman in the hostage-taking at a kosher market is seen in a new video pledging allegiance to the Islamic State group.
Holder says both terrorist groups pose a threat to the United States and its allies.
