Watch DHS Secretary Get Grilled Over Obama’s Refusal to Say ‘Islamic Extremism’

Why won’t President Barack Obama call this a battle against “Islamic extremism”? That was the question opening for a Fox News Sunday interview this week with Department of Homeland Security Sec.

Our religion is about peace and brotherhood. ISIL is attempting to hijack that from us.’ They resent that. Most victims of ISIL are muslim.”
