"Sorry band of men" (The WTC was attacked by Paul McCartney & Wings?)

What president, on the anniversary of 9-11, says that the Pentagon and the World Trade Center were attacked by a “sorry band of men”? Barack Obama, that’s who.

The United States was attacked by Islamic terrorists. If our president can’t say that, why are we fighting in Afghanistan?

Sorry band of men? We were attacked by a Mel Brooks’ spoof of Robin Hood and his band of merry men? We were attcked by Paul McCartney and Wings?

From The Hill:

Obama: U.S. not at war with Islam; ‘sorry band of men’ hit us on 9/11

President Obama stressed that America was not at war with Islam as he decried the “sorry band of men” who attacked the nation nine years ago in memorial ceremonies at the Pentagon on Saturday.

Our president is a complete disgrace to our nation.

From a comment:

“Sorry Band of Men” is what you call soccer hooligans. It is not what you call a group that killed over 3K Americans. How about Radical islam Terrorists or even just TERRORISTS. This is a disgrace to all those families who lost love ones on 9/11.

Obama: “A Sorry Band of Men” Carried Out 9/11 Attacks
Churcillian. If they ever get around to detonating an atomic bomb on US soil, he’ll up his rhetoric to call them “scamps.”

A great comment:

64 Sorry band of men? No, they weren’t men and they weren’t sorry. They were vicious killers.

I checked the databases for prior use of “sorry band of men” and couldn’t find much of anything. I also searched for “sorry band of” with “Obama.” It appears to be a new TOTUS construction.

He needs new speechwriters.

Two more years of this crap every day and trillion-dollar deficits. Oh joy.
