Terrorism has been seen as the biggest threat to the US in more than a decade since 9/11 transformed global politics, and it is American policies in the Middle East and Afghanistan that have often been criticised for the worsening situation.


But in this instance, Fox News went too far with its criticism, as a guest commentator retired Colonel Ralph Peters called President Obama a “total pussy”, while describing the leaders reaction to terrorism.

Peters spoke at length about Obama’s timid approach against the Islamic State, but was later reminded by the news anchor about exercising restraint on his language.
