From the May 22 edition of Fox News’ live coverage of a suspected terror attack in Manchester, England:

JAMES WOOLSEY: Things are kind of coming to a head. I think the radical Islamists, and I would call them that, have decided to pick up the pace with the terrorist attacks, and I think we’ll probably see some more. And we now have a president who is pretty straightforward that he is at war with them. He’s not going to soft-pedal that. He calls them “evil,” and we haven’t had a situation like that. We did not have, in the eight years of the Obama administration, a president who wanted to fight and win a war, and—

SHEPARD SMITH (HOST): President Obama fought a number of wars and certainly didn’t say that he didn’t want to win them. It’s very early – Mr. Woolsey, with great respect, it’s very early to make this a political matter.
