Perhaps the State Department can’t admit the truth because it flies in the face of Obama’s absurd declaration that “al Qaeda is on the run.”
The thing is — it’s not funny. Obama’s pro-jihadist foreign policy is responsible for the victories and conquest of jihadist groups worldwide. The world is vastly different since he took power after 2008. For the worse … much worse.
Imagine, Obama is more pro-Islamic on the Libyan jihad than even the UN, which has designated Ansar al Sharia an al Qaeda terror group.

Reporters poked fun at State Department spokesman Jeff Rathke on Friday as he tried to elaborate on the Obama administration’s stance on the recent UN report linking Ansar al-Sharia to Al Qaeda.
“These groups are associated with Al Qaeda in Maghreb,” Rathke said, “but they are not arms of core Al Qaeda.
Ansar al-Sharia is said to be responsible for the 2012 Benghazi attacks on the U.S. consulate in which four Americans were killed.
Reporters gave Rathke some terms that they deemed more fitting, including, “Al Qaeda light,” “the jayvee team,” and a subsidiary of McDonald’s.
