Once again over at Faux "news" everything that ever goes wrong in the world is President Obama's fault. Is there anyone out there who didn't see this coming given McFarland's record of revisionist history on the Middle East?

A Fox News Analyst Blames Obama For Islamic State's Beheading Of Steven Sotloff:

GRETCHEN CARLSON: A sad day for America, right?

K.T. McFARLAND: You bet. And I'm not sure it's a day that had to happen. You know, the president has stuck his head in the sand. We now have evidence that he's known about the threat that was mounting, coming, the ability of ISIS to take large areas, be well-funded, be well-armed, and have this jihadist agenda of killing, murdering, raping, crucifying, beheading anybody who gets in their way. Americans, Christians, religious minorities, even other Muslims.

And the president stuck his head in the sand, and now we've seen two Americans have lost their heads. And this is not where it's going to be over, Gretchen. That's what's so upsetting. There are some 20 other unaccounted-for journalists who have been missing for the last year in Syria and in Iraq. There's one American -- 26-year-old girl who's an aid worker. We have hundreds, if not thousands, of Americans now in Iraq and doing -- in the oil industry, in the energy industry -- and doing aid workers and working at hospitals teaching at schools; they're all vulnerable.

I'm surprised she didn't find a way to work in BENGHAZI!!!! or some praise of her hero Vladimir Putin while she was on there.

Can you help us out?
