Obama Doesn't Mention al-Qaida in State of the Union

By    |   Tuesday, 20 January 2015 11:52 PM

President Barack Obama didn't mention al-Qaida in his State of the Union address on Tuesday, the first time the terrorist organization has not been mentioned in the annual address since February 2001, noted Fox News Channel's Brett Baier.

"Thirteen days after the Charlie Hebdo attacks in France, tied directly to al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula, 12 days after the head of British intelligence warned of massive attacks from core al-Qaida in Syria, and 13 and a half years after the 9/11 attacks here, the words 'al-Qaida' were never used," Baier said during Fox News' coverage of the address as soon as it was over.

Obama did talk about the threat of the Islamic State (ISIS), and asked Congress to pass authorization to take action against that terrorist organization. It was once known as al-Qaida in Iraq.

Instead, Obama said, "No challenge poses a greater threat to future generations than climate change."
