When Barack Obama asserted that “99.9%” of Muslims reject the interpretation of Islam practiced by groups like ISIS, al-Qaeda, Hamas, et. al., it wasn’t just another in a long line of lies he has told. Fareed Zakaria – the interviewer he told that lie to – has a history that should raise concerns about a similar intention to deceive.
