Loretta Lynch pulls back her words. Slightly. And delivers another whopper.

As most readers know, Loretta Lynch said she would prosecute speech that “edges toward violence” when speaking to a Muslim organization a few days ago.  On Monday she backpedaled a bit, stating: “Of course, we prosecute deeds and not words.”

Sure, Loretta.  Whatever.  (Raise your hand if you trust Ms. Lynch.)

Meanwhile, on Sunday, she made this unbelievable (in a normal world) statement in reference to the San Bernardino jihad attack, as Politico reports:

In an interview Sunday about the San Bernardino shootings that killed 14 people, Lynch said she was "not sure" which ideology the San Bernardino shooters were driven by. However, hours later in an Oval Office address, President Barack Obama discussed the shootings and the need for the U.S. to "destroy" the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant group.

Asked by POLITICO why she was reluctant to publicly say even that the shootings were inspired by ISIL, Lynch stressed the need for investigators to keep an open mind to all possibilities.

"At this point…we’re not prepared to limit any particular ideology to what may have inspired these individuals," the attorney general said. "There are a number of groups that are on social media, looking to encourage people to commit acts of violence within the homeland, so at this point we simply do not want to rule anything out."

Wow.  We are truly living in The Twilight Zone.
