Syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer criticized the Obama administration’s “reluctance and denial” to flatly identify terrorism, including radical Islamic terrorism, as the culprit in ‘lone-wolf’ and other attacks on the American populace.

“Absolutely clear that admin’s reluctance and denial hovers somewhere between inexplicable and delusional,” Krauthammer said on Special Report with Bret Baier.

“Time after time shows attempt to say anything but what these things are.”

“[Obama called] the Fort Hood [attack] ‘workplace violence’—[which showed] a reluctance to use” the term ‘terrorism’, Krauthammer said.

The administration is “still pondering about the guy that stabbed people in the mall in Minnesota—who went around asking people if they were Muslim [and] invoked Allah,” he said.

Krauthammer also criticized the White House for apparently treating ‘lone-wolf’ terror attacks as a “lesser category” than organized group attacks.

“In the absence of a letter of instruction written in Raqqa by the leader of ISIS, it counts as less,” he said.

He said that such linguistics “give fuel” to Republicans, including Donald Trump.
