Gold Star Mom on Asking Obama About 'Islamic Terrorist' Phrase
A Gold Star mother who asked President Obama at a town hall why he declines to use the phrase "Islamic terrorist" joined Fox & Friends to discuss the meeting.
At the event, Obama told Tina Houchins that the issue "has been sort of manufactured," calling the debate a "slippery slope."
"The way we're going to win this battle [with terrorism] is not by betraying our ideals," he said.
Houchins' son, Cpl. Aaron Gautier, was killed in Iraq in 2007.
"I really didn't believe he was going to answer me, so it wasn't something that I expected an answer from," Houchins said.
"I saw his point...but I feel that you're not lumping them all [Muslims] together, because that's like saying 'all people are bad'."
"There's bad people and there are good people and you have to separate the difference and the bottom line is my son was killed by... Islamic terrorists," she told Ed Henry.
"To me, call them what they are--a murderer is a murderer."
