The White House website has censored a comment made by French President Francois Hollande that “Islamist terrorism” is at the “roots of terrorism,” MRC TV reported.

WhiteHouse.gov and the White House YouTube page pulled the video of a press event on terrorism with Presidents Obama and Hollande, and when the same video appeared again, the audio of Hollande’s translator had been cut, beginning with the words “Islamist terrorism,” then came on again at the end of his sentence.

The audio of Hollande saying the words “Islamist terrorism” in French has also been edited.

According to the official White House transcript of Hollande’s remarks, Hollande refers to “Islamist terrorism.” The French president’s text in the transcript goes:

“We are also making sure that between Europe and the United States there can be a very high level coordination.

“But we’re also well aware that the roots of terrorism —

(This part was eliminated from the audio) Islamist terrorism, is in Syria and in Iraq. We therefore have to act both in Syria and in Iraq, and this is what we’re doing within the framework of the coalition.

(This part follows the brief silence on the video) And we note that Daesh (ISIS) is losing ground thanks to the strikes we’ve been able to launch with the coalition.”

After MRC TV made a huge deal out of the Obama team’s censorship, the White House issued the following statement:

“A technical issue with the audio during the recording of President Hollande’s remarks led to a brief drop in the audio recording of the English interpretation. As soon as this was brought to our attention, we posted an updated video online here with the complete audio, which is consistent with the written transcript we released yesterday.”

According to MRC TV, as of Saturday, the White House has removed its comments and link to the “complete audio” video and replaced the muted video with the version containing the “complete audio” on the White House Video page.

  1. It’s had to believe that White House is the biggest defender of Islam than the Islamic nations can ever do. Honestly such extremes of even concealing the truth about the barbaric nature of Islam & the threat it possess to the welbeing American citizenry. To me Obama & his minions in the Democratic Party are more loyal to Islam & their love & devotion to it supersedes their patriotism to the USA.

  2. some media is portraying this as did he edit or was this a technical issue? The denial and lying by the left have already started. NY Post already said this was a certainty…”he said it and they deleted it.” There is no conspiracy being created that the left wants people to hear

  3. The fact that Obama edited the comments of an official guest of the United States, French President Hollande, is damning proof that Barack Hussein Obama is crude, uncouth and totally without principle, without character and without the slightest vestige of diplomatic skills. He is an Islamist Terrorist in president's clothing and a complete disgrace to the office he holds.

    MORT KUFF

  4. Unbelievably stupid! The censoring got far more publicity than allowing the translation to go through. No news here, Hollande has used the term Islamic terrorism many times. Omitting it from the translation though just shows how petty and narrow minded the Obama administration is.

  5. The White House is pitiful. It is so sad to see grown men and women behaving like mental patients. They need to be put in a mental hospital and remain there for the rest of their natural life. All of them. And the majority of congress needs to go with them. I for one do not understand a freak show who calls himself president selling out this country and disrespecting other countries. I guess when one is ghetto born and raised it remains for the rest of his natural life I have known hundreds of people on parole and they were mostly out of ghetto areas. Any one of them had more class and more love and loyalty to this country than that mental case in the white house. God Bless the French President for calling them Islamic terrorist.

  6. Amen. But how do we get this slimy piece of trash impeached and get other countries to understand this is not the way of the American people. When he was elected I had many doubts but I prayed he would do a good job and give our black Americans a leader they could be proud of. He has failed them in every way.Makes me sick to my stomach to see how he had used everyone.

  7. Please don't generalize. All Americans did not vote for him. Done who failed to check him out. Some too stupid to vote for the person and not a party politic most should have to take an intelligence test to find out if they have enough intelligence to be voting in elections that can harm Americans.

  8. If OBAMA had done the right thing from the get go the problems and challenges that now exists all across the Middle East (especially Syria, Libya Yemen, Iran and Iraq) and Africa, would have never come into the sad stage as it is, instead OBAMA constantly works and criticizes Israel who supposed to be the main and real democracy in the whole region!!!

  9. When you can not name the enemy, how are you supposed to fight him? This is the problem of this inept administration with its ties to terrorist groups such as the Muslim Brotherhood, the move to appease Muslim nations, you can never appease, they only understand overwhelming strength, look at anything else as a sign of weakness.
