What was most amazing in the murder of the 21 Copts on the shores of Libya by jihadists was the fact that there no mention in our media or by our president of the fact that the victims were murdered because of their faith

Social media took both Obama and our media to task for such an omission and now Mr Obama mentions that the victims were Copts and Christians

And NPR today is telling the listeners that the victims were Copts/Christians

I really give credit to social media for exposing lies by our leaders and our mass media
