Let's go to the transcript!
"Two months ago, Donald Trump said that ISIS was not our fight."
Expert: Claim is 'completely nonsensical'
"Mike Morell testified and told Congress that the reason Obama has not bombed ISIS' oil fields is they're concerned about global warming."
Data is opaque, but Rubio seems in the ballpark
"Three or four countries" out of roughly 60 in the anti-ISIS coalition "are providing military force."
Not strictly by the book
In 2000, "I wrote about Osama bin Laden, ‘We’ve got to take him out.’"
No calls for internment by Rubio
Debbie Wasserman Schultz
Says Marco Rubio said "we should be considering internment" of Muslims, and "maybe we should close down cafes and diners where Muslims gather and in fact compared them to the Nazi party."
Sorting out sorties
"Up until recently, 75 percent of all the sorties that left the base came back without dropping their ordnances, because there was such a concern about making sure that there were no civilian casualties."
Not representative of American Muslims
Says 25 percent of U.S. Muslims "agreed that violence against Americans here in the United States is justified as a part of the global jihad."
'Thousandfold' is rhetorical flourish, but he's mostly on target
"In France, they have a (surveillance) program a thousandfold more invasive" than the United States.
The White House explicitly addressed the threat
In the weekend after the terrorist attacks in Paris, the White House said "this couldn't happen in the United States. ISIS couldn't reach us here."
Sometimes it is, sometimes it isn't
"It is already in the law that there is a requirement to screen (refugees) for religion."
Not even close
President Barack Obama "wants to take in 250,000 (people) from Syria."
Not on any government list
"The Family Research Council, according to some government agencies, is a terrorist group."
Obama avoids broadbrushing Muslims
Says President Barack Obama "will not utter the words ‘radical Islamic terrorism’ and as matter of policy, nobody in the administration will say the words ‘radical Islamic terrorism.’"
Two dozen narrowly defined
The United States has "10,000 IRS agents making sure that you don't take an improper charity deduction," but to fight terrorism, it has "less than two dozen people focusing on countering violent extremism at home."
The Saudis see Iran, Yemen more threatening
"Instead of fighting ISIS, (the Saudis) have focused more on a campaign to oust Iran-backed Houthi rebels in Yemen."
67 percent of less than 1 percent of refugees
In 2013, the United States "accepted 67 percent of the world’s refugees."
No one remembers this but Trump
"I watched in Jersey City, N.J., where thousands and thousands of people were cheering" as the World Trade Center collapsed.
Number proposed by local agencies
The federal government is "making the decision, whether we like it or not, to send 425 refugees to our state" from Syria.
One controversial program shuttered
The New York Police Department used to have "surveillance going on in and around mosques in New York City. ... Our mayor totally cut that out."
Bill exists but that's about it
While Americans pray for Paris, the government has acted on mandatory national vaccinations.
