Gorka: Obama's 'Lone Wolf' Ideas 'Make Americans Stupid'

"MSNBC Live"

White House aide Sebastian Gorka on Tuesday said "there is no such thing as a lone wolf," insisting a "serious" lone-wolf attack has "never happened" and the idea of one was created by the Obama administration to "make Americans stupid."

The firebrand military and intelligence expert told "MSNBC Live" it is a "bogus" idea.

"There's no such thing as a lone wolf," Gorka told MSNBC hosts Ali Velshi and Stephanie Ruhle. "That is a phrase invented by the last administration to make Americans stupid.

"There's never been a serious attack or a serious plot that was unconnected from ISIS or al-Qaida, at least through the ideology and TTPs, tactics and training and techniques and procedures that they supply through the internet. Never happened.

"It is bogus, this is an international global threat."

Gorka said destroying ISIS must first start by calling it what it is – radical Islamic terrorism. Making that distinction is as important as calling "cancer" by its name.

"If you, God forbid, caught cancer and the hospital was forbidden from calling it cancer and said you have the flu, go take aspirins, would you have the right treatment?" Gorka said.

"A serious disease or international geopolitical threat, you'll never solve it in an administration that says it's economic, and these people are disenfranchised," Gorka said. "You cannot solve a problem unless you're allowed to talk truthfully about it. We call it radical Islamic terrorism.

"What we have to do now is not only destroy organizations like ISIS, which they are doing – they will be annihilated," Gorka said. "But also delegitimize the ideology so it will be become as heinous and as rejected as Fascism and Nazism is today.

"That black flag of ISIS has to be globally rejected like the swastika, and we'll work with Muslim partners to overtly and covertly delegitimize their message. That's the definition of victory; when people don't want to become jihadis, that's when we'll have won."
